Stealing this photo from @sarahfrenchbrennan . Day 3 (?) of the #honeymoonandyoutour : More wandering-around adventures this afternoon, with plenty of busking sprinkled throughout. I am starting to feel pretty comfy on the uke, and can play a couple dozen songs… so we’re just about ready to play the first show of the tour tomorrow!
We have been terribly self-indulgent, aided and abetted by our new friends-for-life Sarah and Pasha. They take hospitality to fantastic new heights. We love talking to them, esp while sharing various kinds of sausage and wheat beers. Sausage and wheat beers: The Netherlands.
Tried a new snack this evening: a crispy, hot hot hot, deep-fried ball of gravy. FRIED BALL OF GRAVY. Served with mustard (the real kiind). I feel like I may never be the same.
Ryan’s Dutch word of the day (a new tradition, forced upon him by my obnoxious ass) was “Krosti”, a delicate grilled-cheese-like snack. When we ordered them at a cafe, they were on the menu like “Krosti met oude kaase,” which looks to me like “crusty with old cheese.” I was like, I’ll have one of those please! It was the tastiest thing I ate all day.
My word of the day today was “unhandig” (sp?), which means “clumsy.” Very topical, as I spilled a pint of beer allllllll over myself and the dreamy leather boots I’d just purchased. We have also been diligently cataloguing sausage varieties and will have a full report for you soon.
We learned that Richard is right: the chocolate milk here is off the chain! Anyway, snacks n beverages all day is how we are currently living, and it is just fine.
Tomorrow we will have to stop drinking beer all day because we will pick up our rental car, then drive to Haarlem and the sea. Then back to Amsterdam in the evening, for our show at the Waterhole! So exciting and nerve-wracking to think of playing for an audience in a different country and culture.
We have walked many a charming mile of canals and ancient alleyways this day, and I will try to figure out what I did with the charming photos so I can post ‘em. Love and Oude Kaas to all!

Mark your calendar for this Monday night at 8:30pm – The Moon and You is doing something new! We will be playing a LIVE WEBCAST concert on www.ConcertWindow.com. You can tune in for a suggested donation (just $1 minimum) and watch us play live from the comfort of your home; it’s like a house concert, but with zero effort. While you watch the show, you can also live chat with us – send requests, fawning adoration, dirty jokes, whatever. It’s a completely interactive experience. The best part is, you don’t have to put on pants or go outside or anything stupid like that.
If you haven’t seen The Moon and You in a while and would like to hear some new tunes, old favorites and awkward stage banter from our living room, tune in Monday night for our ConcertWindow debut! It’ll make you feel just like this lucky-ass pie.
