Going out on a school night for us is no easy decision because of the hour we have to get up. Honestly, it’s not even really a decision at all. I rarely, RARELY go out during the week. It has to be something really special to get me to stay up past 11. That happened last night when the Red Hot Chili Peppers came to town. I had tickets to go see them months ago, but they had to cancel and I wasn’t going to miss it. 3 things that remind me of college, Jaeger, Blow (the movie and the RHCP. If I had to pick one band that reminds me of college, Red Hot would be it. I swear their Live from Slane Castle concert DVD was the only thing I kept on heavy rotation in my DVD player other than the movie Blow and the movie Rounders. I may have seen that show 100 times. Definitely one of my top 5 bands of all time. You can’t pass up the opportunity to see one of your top 5. They were great of course. I do take issue with the person who wears the t-shirt of the band of the concert they are at and I should have looked around before I tweeted that opinion. I think 1 out of every 20 people I saw had a Red Hot t on. Mostly ones that had just been purchased at the merch table! Why do I feel like this just isn’t ok? You’re there…..at the show…we get it. You like the band. No need to display your passion by wearing them. Wear any other band t to the show. Why not a Pearl Jam t? Maybe a Lollapalooza t where they might have played back in 1991. I stand by my opinion, though there were lots of concert law breakers last night. It was so nice to reminisce on the good college days and get a little reminder of how incredible that band really is. Loved, Loved, Loved it!!
Rooms and I decided we needed to start doing some different things about 6 months ago and we are just finally getting around to making that happen. I feel a little bad because her thing is learning to play the guitar and the piano. I may just be a huge, easily annoyed bitch, but I have completely forbid her from playing in the common area known as the LIVING ROOM. She wants to strum the same wrong chords over and over and I just can’t deal. Is that so wrong of me to request that she play in her own space? Now, if she was putting on a concert and had multiple songs in her repertoire, I would be thrilled to listen to that, but no. It’s 3 chords. Same with the piano. She is actually decent on that instrument and had some prior knowledge, but she still doesn’t like to wear the 200 dollar headphones that came with the piano as a gift. I really don’t want to be subjected to it and I feel like it makes me mean. There is already so much bad published music out in the world, I simply feel that we don’t need anymore. I am supportive of her learning and think it’s great. I just want to be supportive from the couch, while she’s in her room:)
I am getting excited (I know, crazy right?), about this wedding I’m headed to in Florida in just a couple of weeks. A couple of things about me in case you didn’t know. I don’t want to say HATE, but I really, REALLY dislike weddings. I’m not sure what is it, but I get a weird feeling. Maybe it’s the wastefulness and exorbitance of it all, but I don’t get it. I stand by my feelings of never wanting a wedding for myself, but I know I am going to have ALOT of weddings to attend in the next few years. It’s about that time that all of my friends are doing it. I am definitely going to the Jennifer Aniston in The Breakup, going to the wedding alone and end up getting stuck at the table with a Wiccan. The last 2 weddings I’ve been to, I’ve been hit in the face with the bouquet, so that tells you all you need to know. I haven’t seen some of my friends in years and it’s going to kind of a reunion for me which cool. What am I going to wear?! It’s a beach wedding too, yay!
