Good Times and Minor Annoyances

My best intention was to get up at 9:15 a.m., hustle like crazy and be out the door by 9:30 a.m. (I was optimistic), get gas, head for Salt Lake City and be at In the Venue somewhere in the vicinity of 10 a.m. It was a Saturday concert, after all, and I figured that the Starting Line would have people waiting early. As it turned out, something went amiss, the alarm didn't go off, and I woke up at 11:50 a.m. instead. I tried to stay calm, got my things together, said a little prayer and reminded myself that God ALWAYS works out timing for the best, even if it's not always the way I want it. It worked. I calmly got ready to go, talked to my husband a few minutes, got dressed and headed out the door. All I know for sure was that it was probably around 12:30 and I had to make a pit stop to get gas.

I didn't look at exact time when I arrived at the venue, but to my surprise there was no line, no one was there except me. I got out of the car once or twice, went across the street once, waited in my car some more, watched some tour band/personnel types swing on a pole at the top of the stairs one by one, made a couple of phone calls, and finally got in line. It was probably somewhere between 3 and 3:30 before 3 people arrived. (Only just now I noticed all of the 3's in that last sentence. LOL)I chatted about music and concerts with the guy and the two young ladies headed to the Gateway for some food and shortly after that another couple arrived.
I handed out my remaining "Mae" stickers and told people about the upcoming show on April 4. (Yes, I'm VERY excited about that concert!) I talked a little to an older guy who had come from Four Corners to Salt Lake City and had been there since 8 last night. He was trying to reach his son with no luck. The couple gave him their French Fries, and he was grateful. It made me a little sad. Then it was just a long wait until 6:30. The weather would have been absolutely gorgeous, but there was a biting, cold, breeze that reminding me there were still vestiges of winter left.

Finally, 6:30 came and went. So, we weren't let in right on the dot, but it wasn't too much past 6:30 and we finally were let into the venue. I decided to take a chance and go for center this time. I prayed that I wouldn't get creamed. LOL It was a good spot, though, overall.

The opening band, Steel Train was really pretty good. The vocals were definitely on and I could hear them really well. They were quite energetic and fun, too. In a few places the singer/guitarist would go into these great guitar riffs, but they almost wouldn't fit with the song. I guess they were good enough that they had to be played somewhere, so he tossed them in. ;) That being said, I still liked their set a great deal, and loved the guy's voice.

After Steel Train, Four Year Strong played an even more energetic set. They were a bit harder than Steel Train, and the only downside to their music was that from where I was the vocals were not easy to hear. The keyboardist went into the crowd more than once. The crowd at In the Venue loved their set and they really did get people going. Towards the end, the Keyboardist decided to surf the crowd, only he used my right shoulder as his step off point. Let's just Ouch, and that I will definitely be feeling that in the morning! Actually, I think there is a little bit of a bruise now. The funniest thing that happened is one of the guys in the band surfed out into the crowd, and security didn't see him go into the crowd and only saw him on the "return trip." Then security did their job and weren't letting him back up on the stage. I think it caused one of the songs to possibly end just a little early. We were all laughing about it. After their set I asked for the set list and got it.

The person standing behind me was probably one of the biggest Bayside fans out there. She was really enthusiastic, bouncy, etc. when they finally came on stage.
I thought it was cute. She also knew all the words which may or may not have been a good thing. :) Anyway, Bayside put on a good show. At one point Kenny came out and sang with them. Gratefully crowd surfing wasn't bad until the last song, and security handled them all fairly well. At one point I did get my face a little too close to the barricade ducking for security to pull someone out and so I'm hoping I won't look too beat up tomorrow. So far, so good. LOL You know, I really do hate pain. LOL Bayside said that they would be at their merch table for a little while at the end of their set. The way they worded it left me the distinct impression they wouldn't be there by the end of The Starting Line's set, so I mentioned this to the Bayside fan. I would have really hated for her to miss them, so she decided to leave and go back to meet them. I hope it worked out for her. My prediction ended up being valid as I didn't see them at the merch table after the show. Again, I asked for a set list and was able to get it. I was on a roll. LOL

After a bit of time for set up, it was time for The Starting Line. The crowd went crazy, and pretty much stayed that way. When Kenny first started on the stage, his eyes looked quite tired in the pics. By the end of the night, I think he had the crowd pretty stoked, and vice versa. :) The Starting Line's set was reasonably long. I count 19 songs. It was a great set. There was a good mixture of the energetic with the more acoustic songs that worked really well. At the very beginning of the set the vocals were a bit difficult to hear, but that changed after a song or two, which was good. I could hear the vocals really well during the acoustic songs and Kenny's voice sounded very good. After Island The Starting Line left the stage to raucous applause. Some people in the crowd started a chanting for one more song and quickly started chanting for a particular song. Of course, TSL came back onstage for an encore. When they came back onstage, they brought Alex of The Almost with them to play bass, and Kenny was free to just sing and entertain the crowd, and he did just that. The show ended, and I tried to get a set list. One of the security guys was going to get it for me, but one of the stage guys went by real fast and grabbed them all and held them for ransom. He wanted the name of three Ramone's songs. Hey, I thought I was doing good to know who they were, but I had no clue. I thought I wasn't going to get the set list after all. No one else knew, either. He said he was ashamed of us. Then he wanted the name of a punk band and any three songs. He gave one to someone who came up with a band name. I went blank.
Anyone I thought of I knew wasn't "punk" enough. In the end I managed to snag the last one in his possession. I love it when a plan comes together. ;)
Anyway, I spent a little time at the merch table, bought a few items, tipped all the merch guys (went to tip Steel Train's merch and then realized they didn't have a tip jar because they were the merch guys, so I gave them a tip anyway. LOL) and headed for the door. On the way out one of the venue guys I often talk to asked me if I got any good pics. I told him maybe a few, but it was my crappy point and shoot. He said he heard I got some really good pics of Colbie Callait (which I did) and I said I was able to get a few really nice ones of her. He said her management was mad and I asked why. He said because they said someone was using a pro camera and selling them (see the implication? It seemed that way to me) I assured him that I took my photos with that camera and I never sell them. In fact, I messaged on my space saying they could use any if they wanted for free. So, now that has me bugged a bit. sigh.... I'm a tad annoyed - not at the venue - so I'm trying to figure out if it is my pics so I can straighten this out. Sheesh!!! LOL One of the guys was laughing when I said emphatically that I give my pics away, I don't sell them. Anyway, after that I left.

The drive home went by quickly, I stopped by my P.O. Box along the way, stopped by the grocery store for a few things, and was home before 1 a.m.

I hope you enjoyed my latest novella. Kudos if you made it this far.

Have a great week!!


P.S. I will add pics once I get them off the camera. :)

5 million things...

I have about 5 million things I want to blog about. The problem is that I really should be sleeping. It's 2:48 a.m. I plan to get up bright and early and be to the venue by 10 a.m. (hahaha.. we'll see) to see The Starting Line, et al. The only bad thing about Saturday is some people do show up early.. unless I do, and then no one shows until 5 p.m. Funny how that works sometime.

I did want to thank anyone who kept me in thoughts and prayers over my quality at work. The very next day I got another "bad" one, and I was ready to quit. But just like before I stuck it out. I felt like crying, though, which always makes me feel stupid.

So this week, I have received at three others back -- all hundred percents. I'm sure I can muck that up next time, though. I'm entering a different document, and I was trying hard not to fall asleep the last half of the night.

Now, that I've bored you to tears with this blog tale of document data transcription (that's the government's fancy title for data entry), I think I'll head off to dreamland.

I wonder if I will dream of concerts. As I mentioned, tomorrow I see The Starting Line. April 4, I will have the unspeakable pleasure of seeing Mae, et al. and I am also enthusiastically looking forward to seeing Eisley with The Myriad and Vedera on May 8. I fully expect that I will be wowed! :) Oh.. and Paramore with Jimmy Eat World on the April 12, and the Newsboys, Rush of Fools on April 26, Superchick on May 5. I don't think I go to enough shows, do you?

Peace out and sweet dreams...

It was a beautiful day

It was a gorgeous day outside today. I wish I could have spent more time outside enjoying it, but the drive to work was the nicest I can remember in a while. Too bad things aren't all sunny here in other ways, but at least it's hard to feel too down when the sun has finally made an extended appearance in Northern UT. I was beginning to wonder if the temps in the 60's were a thing of the past. LOL
It's supposed to be like this for a couple more days and then drop to the mid forties or so. I'm very happy not to have to scrape the ice off my car so I can leave from work anymore!! (singing sunny with a high of 75.... well, make that 65. LOL)

Today, I was able to listen to my Zune on breaks. I purchased 2 new cd's over the last weekend (In Rainbows by Radiohead and The Photo Album by Death Cab for Cutie) and they both look like winners. The Photo Album may end up being my favorite DCFC cd although I really do like Plans. I think I'm in the minority as most people seem to love Transatlanticism better. I need to find where mine is so I can add it to my Zune. LOL The first thing I noticed with The Photo Album is how much the style and even vocals (to a small extent) reminded me of Matthew Thiessen and the Earthquakes. I think there was just a tiny bit of influence there. Anyway, I'm loving it so far. Speaking of Deathcab, they have a new single out. According to All Access, it's already #28 an the Alternative rock chart. That was quick! LOL It was also # 1 for new adds.

Well, I should feed the dogs and get ready to sleep. To sleep, perchance to dream....


God's blessings,

Tired of feeling...

I'm really kinda tired of feeling like I don't do anything well. There has to be something I can do that I'm really good at, except feeling like I don't fit anywhere. I'm fairly talented in that regard. I had a quality review come back from Friday. 3 errors... What that means is that they check 7 or 8 random documents (from one batch) and every document that has an error is counted against you. You could have 7 errors on one document, and it's one error. You can have 7 errors on 7 documents and it's 7 errors. You are theoretically supposed to get reviewed on 30 documents per pay period (7,8,7,8.) The last couple of weeks, I can't seem to get any sort of a good rate. I've only had one 100%. To be fully successful, we are supposed to be higher than 90%. I'm really struggling on this, and I have no idea why or what to do about it. I just feel like I can't do anything well, I can't quit (and I hate the thought of being a quitter) and I have no idea what else I can do.

I'm a bit nervous about my annual evaluation this year. Every year I've been fully successful, although last year, it wasn't by a lot in the quality department. I'm afraid my last couple of weeks will mean I'm not. It's unlikely I'll be fired, that practically takes an act of God where I work... that or criminal activity. But it does mean I will be even more trapped. It does affect my recall/release number, not that I am overly concerned about that most of the time (my job is seasonal.)

I was at work on Friday, I think, and I ran into someone I hadn't talked to in a while. So funny that we both feel exactly the same about work. Neither one of us is happy where we are. Neither one of us saw any thing else we wanted to do there.
But to go elsewhere would probably mean a significantly lower wage, benefits and less schedule flexibility. So we both at the same time said we felt trapped.

I think there was a certain release at that moment we both said that. I'd been thinking it a while. Now I still have no idea what to do about it. But there you have it. I admire people who can do what they love and survive doing it.

Even more I admire people that can put God first. I don't always do that so well, either. It's a good thing that the grace of God exists. There's no way I'd make it otherwise.

Anyway, prayers always welcome.

Cd Saturday

Friday was mostly awful for me. Fortunately, Friday ended and things looked much brighter on Saturday morn.... I mean afternoon. I stayed up really late and slept until 3:30 p.m. I wanted to go to a scrapbook thing today, but it started at 10 a.m. I tried, but it just didn't happen. One of the things that lifted me from the Friday funk was The Fold's cd, Secrets Keep You Sick, but the icing on the cake was playing Singularity by Mae on my Zune, and trying not to laugh when Brink of Disaster started playing. The lyrics so fit my day that I almost laughed out loud. LOL

So, it is somewhat fitting that I set aside a part of Saturday to put up a few more Mae posters at this end of town. First stop was the Guitar Center in Riverdale. I went in and asked if they had earplugs - the good sort that cuts off after a certain decibel level and allows you to still hear the music -- hopefully without it seeming so muffled. They had some, and I will try them out at the next show. This is probably long overdue. Then I asked if they had a place to put up concert posters, which they did. I'm not sure how much traffic it gets except employees, but they have ads up for people looking for drummers, etc., so hopefully it gets a bit. Anyway, it was fun as the clerk loves Mae and The Honorary Title. I gave him a Mae sticker and Honorary Title poster and he was really excited about it. Unfortunately, I drove off without my camera, so no photo proof, although I may get to that later if I can wake up early enough before work sometime. Anyway, I headed over to Graywhale to put up a poster in Ogden. So there will be posters @ Graywhale's in Ogden, Bountiful, Salt Lake City, and Taylorsville. I think Taylorsville is closest to the venue. Mae did an acoustic set there at least once. Anyway, while I was at the Ogden Graywhale, I decided to look through their cd's and found a Tori Amos cd, "The Beekeeper" and Death Cab for Cutie's "You Can Play These Songs With Chords." It isn't the Death Cab cd I was looking for, but I didn't have it so I bought it.

I stopped at another music place on Riverdale Road and was going to ask if they put up posters, and on the door I saw posters all over for a "Battle of the Bands" at Weber State, and Daphne Loves Derby is playing on April 11. Figures it is a Friday! LOL But since Weber is pretty close to work, I might be able to work something out to maybe work the whole 8 hours at different times of the day than usual. I hope so... that's if you don't have to be a student or anything. Anyway, I left two posters with an employee, since they were closed, and he said he'd see about getting them approved. I'll check back sometime in the next week.

Then I made a short pit stop and home, picked up my camera, went to Wally World (aka Wal Mart for those not in on the lingo) and decided to pick up Mercy Me's new cd. I really wanted Santus Real's cd, but it looks like I'll have to order it online if I want it. :( I had ordered some pics from the Mute Math/Matchbox 20 concert from Wal Mart online, and my main goal was to pick them up. I went through the pics and noticed that it only printed half my order. Instead of the whole album, it just picked up the last 29 pics that I added to the album. So, I ended up using the kiosk. Unfortunately, I left the SD card in the kiosk, typical Melanie style. Sigh... Fortunately, I discovered it fairly soon, and someone had turned it in, although I can't pick it up until tomorrow.

Next stop was Music to the Maxx in Layton. I asked about putting up the poster, and it was taped on the window near the door. Then I looked around and found Melee's first cd, "Everyday Behavior." Once upon a time, I tried to order it from Amazon, and somehow ordered their ep instead. SO, I still didn't have it until this evening. I got so excited when I saw that Music to the Maxx had Melee's cd. LOL So, after I paid for my find I chatted with the clerks, gave them a Mae sticker, and asked about music they were playing that I liked. So, then I had them listening to Melee, Eisley, The Myriad, etc. I thanked them for indulging me and went to take a photo, which is when I realized that I had no sd card in my camera. I did have another one in the camera case, so at least I still got a pic.

Then I headed for home and the post office. I stopped at Grounds for Coffee and left a poster that they will hopefully put up if the manager approves it. I ordered a Peach Italian Soda, which I love, and if I must say so, it was pretty good! I rather miss their Italian sodas, so now that it's not bitter cold, I should do that more often again. :)

With Italian soda in hand I headed for the post office to check my P.O. Box, and the Angels and Airwaves cd was waiting for me there from

So, today I have 5 new cd's (well, at least new to me) to add to my Zune. It should keep me busy and in trouble.

Hope everyone had a great Saturday!!

Peace out,

P.S. photos to follow soon.

You would think it was raining?

I posted this on my myspace already. Just a thought I jotted down semi related to the other post on my ramblings:

Is this a poem? or just a thought. Does it tie in to what I wrote already, or is it something entirely new?

The questions are somewhat rhetorical. I'm asking myself.

I am a raindrop, I land in the river
I am absorbed
I flow to the ocean
I am a raindrop swallowed up by the sea
I am no more

Maybe I will make it into a regular poem sometime. It should be called "Significance." LOL

Not just your "typical" day. Mute Math, Alanis Morisette, Matchbox 20

Wow, I just about had my whole adventure typed up and all of a sudden, it just vanished except one letter. I didn't do anything. :(

So, the shortened version is:

I worked until 3 a.m. (March 5th turning over into March 6), slept until about 10 a.m., was at work by 11 a.m., worked until 3 p.m., headed for the venue, but decided to stop at home. I got gas and headed out to the venue about 4:30 p.m. It took about an hour or so to get to the venue, and the trip went well. I spent time trying to find a way to get things to Mute Math, and was finally successful, although the doors had already been open a bit before it was mission accomplished.

I purchased a usb wrist band to get a copy of Matchbox 20's part of the concert. I got a ticket and was to pick it up after the show. It's a cool little invention, let me tell you.

I took my seat, chatted with the person in front of me and told them all about Mute Math. (He later got pretty excited when he recognized things I had described about their show had he loved them!) Then Mute Math took the stage and did the incredible as they always do, except the sound was phenomenal, and Paul sounded great! I took some pics -- not great pics, but I'm happy to have them!

Then I took a potty break and waited for Alanis. She was outstanding. I was really impressed with her voice, and her band was amazing. It was kinda fun to hear the whole arena singing Ironic, but I was a tad disappointed that she didn't sing more of it herself as well. The audience pretty much sang the first verse.

After Alanis set, I went up to see Mute Math and got to talk to them, get a couple of pics and a few hugs. I wanted hugs, but wasn't sure if they were into that sort of thing, but it just happened naturally. Paul seemed very happy to see me there, which made my day. I was able to hang about the table and chat and security didn't bother me about it, which was unusual. It was pretty cool.

I went down to watch Matchbox 20 in progress. I think they were about 3/4 through the first song when I reached my seat. They were actually quite good. There were a few slow spots, but overall not a bad concert. I had been told the first 20 minutes were the best part of the show, and I tend to agree, except there I did enjoy the encore and a few other highlights (like their cover of She Came in Through the Bathroom Window.) After the show, I got my wristband and dallied a bit talking to people including the gal who helped me find a way to get some things to the Mute Math guys. I thanked her lots. She talked about people who were lingerers. I told her I was probably one. She said she was thinking she should hand them trash bags, and I told her if she handed me one, I'd probably help. She said, "I know you would." LOL I liked her lots. LOL So, I went outside and chatted with another venue employee while I waited for traffic to die down. Then I headed for home.. a very happy camper.. er.. I mean concert goer. LOL

I can't wait for Mute Math to come back. I think they are going to be hanging about closer to home after the tour and be working on music, so that's pretty awesome as well.

Anyway, another great adventure comes to a close.

Start spreading the news....

Today was promote the bands day. On Wednesday, March 19, I am going to see Sherwood and We Shot the Moon, The Higher, Houston Calls and Allred. It should be a great show! I've never been to the venue before, also known as "The Circuit" so I have no idea what to expect there. I ran in to Allred's manager at the Angels and Airwaves concert and told him I'd put a few up at the local Graywhales, also known as, a small area chain of cd/games/video exchanges.

On April 4, I have a ticket to see Mae w/ the Honorary Title, Between the Trees and Far Less. I have been a big fan of Mae's since about 2005. The first time I saw them it was in May. I loved the sound of saying that I was going to see Mae in May.
I volunteered to promote the concert. As a result, I will be on the guest list, although I have a ticket already. I do this for love, ya know. I had hoped to have flyers to hand out at the Angels & Airwaves concert on March 4 and the Matchbox 20 concert on March 6, but some of the posters arrived just after I left for the show with another envelope of posters and stickers arriving the following day. In one of the envelopes were the instructions. I gave some thought as to timing and decided that Saturday would be my best shot at getting things up. So today, I printed venue, date, time, etc. and affixed them to the posters and set out on the road. IT was a very long, but very productive day.

First stop wasn't far. I just went up the street and around the corner to a small coffee shop I'd been wanting to check out called Bikini Coffee. It was actually a nice little shop and I was able to order a Peach Italian Soda without the cream and it was quite good. They I asked if I could put up concert posters and was given permission. I could barely reach enough to put them up, however. Yes, I am vertically challenged. I should just take a portable stool with me next time I try this. LOL

Then I headed out in ernest for Bountiful, Salt Lake City and Taylorsville.
In Bountiful I stopped at one of the Graywhales and it looked as though they knew
I was coming and cleared the way for my posters. That was so very kind of them. ;) I got permission to hang the posters, took a few pics, went over and looked at their new releases and headed off to the next site, although not before I left a few Mae stickers for their counter top.

I had seen another music/cd place called, Music to the Maxx, a few weeks earlier while meeting with friends at a restaurant in Bountiful, so I decided to check it out. I was so very glad I did! The young folks working there were extremely excited about Mae. I told them they were coming on April 4, and gave them information they could use to get their tickets. They said posters should be no problem and their manager loves that sort of thing. She wasn't available, but in the end, they put the posters up then and there so I could photograph them. LOL I also left them with stickers. I was now jazzed and ready to head out to stop number 3.

Stop No. 4 is a local/indie type cd shop in Salt Lake City known as Slowtrain. The young lady at the counter was extremely friendly and helpful. I asked about the posters and was granted permission to put them up, so of course, I put them up! LOL
I also left a few Mae stickers for the counter. While I was there I asked about Benton Paul's cd, as I had to miss his cd release party to see Mute Math, et al., and she listed it as being available through their store on March 18. I thanked her for all her help, took my photos and left for the next location.

I didn't really get enough Sherwood posters, so I stopped and made a few b&w 8-1/2x
11" copies and some small flyers made up to take along at Staples. The guy at the counter was really helpful, and I asked him if he ever went to concerts. He said as a matter of fact he did, so I told him about Mae on April 4. As it turns out he's a Mae fan, and he also commented on my Mae tee. I gave him a sticker and also left one of the Sherwood flyers with him. On the way out the door, I spotted a couple of interesting items in the clearance bin for 50 cents each and picked them up. After I paid for them, I gave the gal at the register a sticker, and also to a customer there and told them about the show.

I wasn't quite sure which direction to head next, but I ended up passing Wild Oats, so I turned around and went back. I stopped to see if they had any place for posters, but they really didn't. So, instead I gave stickers to a few people and told them about the show, made a quick purchase (soy sour cream substitute) and headed for Beans & Brews 906 S 500 E in Salt Lake City. There is another on S. State that I never managed to get to this time around. As it turns out, I found another Mae fan working the counter at Beans & Brews, so she was very excited to hear about the concert. I put up the posters, took a few pics, bought a muffin (ended up being 2 for 1 because it was after 4 p.m.) and headed for the next place on my list.

The Graywhale on 208 S 1300 E is rather close to the college. It looks almost as much like a house as a cd exchange, except for the large blue "Graywhale" on the exterier, and a cool looking sign with a dolphin out front. Parking on the street is limited, and I didn't see any. I had to fork over $2 to park behind the store.
I was able to get posters up there and take pics, although I had a bit of a time again being considerably shorter than the place they have designated for posters. I did manage, though. Again I left some stickers. (Is there a pattern here?)

My next plan was The Avalon and Bad Ass Coffee. I had thought it was one of the other places that closed at 7 p.m., but it turned out to be the coffee place, so I missed that one. On the way from Graywhale, I got turned around and went 31 long blocks out of the way, but I did finally arrive at the Avalon. I thought for sure it would be bustling with concert activity, but the place was pretty dead (seems rather unusual for a Saturday night.) I taped a poster up on their poster area (usually it looks like they use staples), and hoped that tape was o.k. I'm sure they won't mind the poster, just not sure they like the method I used to post it. Anyway, I took a photo of the poster, and then the theater with the area the poster was in, and one of the pics must not have really been taken at all. While I was posting I heard all these sirens going off, so my first thought was "uh oh, busted" but it obviously wasn't from the venue. LOL

I got back in my car and headed for my last stop of the night, Graywhale in Taylorsville. I was able to put up the posters, leave some stickers, purchase "The Maine's" ep for $4.99 and get the requisite photos.

By that time, it had been well over an hour that I had really needed a potty break badly, so I went over to Albertson's and used their facility. While I was there, I spotted a tea that I love and hadn't been able to find here for some time. I really love Bigelow's Decaf French Vanilla, and places at my end of town had pretty much stopped carrying the decaf version. I bought all three boxes at Albertson's. Then I ordered small #1 combo at Wendy's, ate my burger, and headed for home. It was a long but very productive night.

I only missed two locations on my list and if I have a chance I will catch them later. I still have some more local stops to make this week, but it should not be quite as much of an effort to get to them since they are closer to home.

So there you have it... the adventures of a wayward old lady acting like a teenager once again.

Love, peace and joyful poster hanging,

More Ramblings...

New entries to my wanderous ramblings:

Thoughts --

floating in a sea
like trying to catch a fish
the line's too short
elusive, escaping thoughts
try to catch a thought as it floats along

profound thoughts
lost thoughts
found thoughts
unwound thoughts

Meandering thoughts
looking for trails and clues
trying to find a needle in a haystack.
Lost in a maze
I can see the end, but I can't quite get there

I'm so very tired now, I can't believe I haven't collapsed in a heap right here. Well, I did doze at my desk for about 20 minutes or more. Tonight I saw Mute Math, Alanis Morisette and Matchbox 20. Those who know me know that I am a huge fan of the band known as Mute Math, and the guys in it as well. :) I don't think I can think clearly enough to recount the whole night's events, but I will very soon.

I'm going to put the doggies in their crate while I sleep.... sleep, perchance to dream? :)

Hope everyone is well and has a good day. :)

Peace Out,
