Because they're one of the last two bands on my bucket list to see before I die. And they're on their farewell tour and there are no American tour dates. Anyone who gets to see them and I don't I'm intensely jealous of.. lol


I haven't been to a concert in years. The last one I went to was The Coors (not related to the Beer people), an Irish Family / Popular Music band.

I manage to see one every year or at least every other year, usually thanks to friends or family who pay for my ticket and go with me to help keep my anxiety levels down. This year I've seen Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden.

So much damn money for those Maiden tickets, I had to pass :-(


They were here in Pittsburgh recently. I would have liked to go, but you know how it is.

True, but I didn't pay for my ticket. A friend of mine called me and asked did I want to see Iron Maiden. I said, "Always". He replied with, "Good. We already bought you a ticket."

I need to get some of your friends! :-)


Kinda bummed out about Walter Becker. Strangely, I just saw Donald Fagen a week ago.

If you get the chance, go. Great show.

I go to the strip club maybe once a year, twice if my wife drags me to one. They amuse the hell out of her.

A big money pit to be sure but the view can be nice.

Still doing Comic Con in October Pat?

I have the tickets and reservations. I'm really hoping nothing will go wrong. I guess the answer is 'conditionally yes'

I caught these folks on my last trip to Cape Breton

The Barra MacNeils

Before that it was Temple of the Dog in Madison Square Garden last November. Really glad I made the effort to see it

I have tickets to see the Dresden Dolls on Halloween

Sharoth did you get the stuff done we talked about the other day?

Sorry, but haven't gotten to it yet. Been a busy past two weeks. I will try to go through my 20+ boxes of games as soon as I can, but sleep and work and RL issues come first.

*Gibbs slap up the back side of Sharoth's noggin* I was referring to the work stuff, goofball. :P

Y'all really want to go to a strip club with Nobody's Home. Ask him about it.


Also,

HOLY CRAP, Patrick! Dresden Dolls on Halloween?!?

~shrugs~ Between dealing with Mom's fourth bout of cancer, possible loss of job after over 17 years, 10 hours of overtime last week, two kittens, and other "Life, the Universe, and everything" issues, I have not had too much time to work on updating my resume. Having said that, both the Wife and my Mom are starting to nag... ~gets whacked across the head~ Sorry! Sorry! It is constructive prodding... They have been constructively prodding me about that.


Oh yes. I am also on my 11th callout for the weekend. So it has been busy here.


Oh, and I did do the stuff related to the possible job loss issue on Saturday.


If I can ask, why is the possibility of a job loss after 17 years looming?

~shrugs~ 20+ people are getting laid off due to tech change reasons in Atlanta. I live in Savannah Georgia, so someone with more seniority can bump me out of my job. It is not quite that easy, but it could happen.

Hey, everyone. I know it's just a couple of weeks before my first anniversary here on the forums, but it's close enough. So I'd like to say a few things before I forget them. First off, I'm glad to have survived my first year on the forums, even if it's mostly just listening to others. I'd like to think that I've become a better Human Being just by listening to others with differing viewpoints and opinions. And I'd like to think that I've grown wiser in the process.

I'd like to thank everyone for being kind, caring, and compassionate towards me, a near total stranger. Not just about my recently diagnosed tumor, but everything else. Including my (still) unresolved grieving over the 1997 suicide of a brother. It means a lot to me, possibly more than anyone will ever know. Likewise, I've also shared in your joys and sorrows.

Each and every one of you, on this thread and others, has become like family to me, and I love you all. And this year, I'll not let my Birthday slip by without telling anyone.


Dang. I sure hope that doesn't happen. I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya.

~slaps you across the back of the head~ Enough of that mushy stuff. That ditch needs to be dug! Get to work or we will send you to the galley in chains to row for the rest of your life!!!

Oh HELL no. But by all reports, if you go, he's the wingman you need.

Usually I just go to the big concerts that other people want to see. I've seen Johnny Cash and Blondie with my mom, and Jimmy Buffet with my husband (it was his birthday present, and I worked overtime for three weeks to get the tickets). And for another oh his birthdays, Mark Knopfler. That was the one I enjoyed the most.

But I *desperately* wanted to see Leonard Cohen before he died, and every time he came through town, I couldn't afford it.

Only if they serve a good steak platter.


Steely Dan was here at Red Rocks in September of last year, and I didn't even know. I missed it. Urg.

Yup. I just need a vintage tux for my costume, and find a companion to accompany me.


Ugh. Stuck in in processing. It's pretty much the same as any job you've ever had.

I am officially back to work on my previous schedule, starting Today.

I'm guessing you have to rent the Hotel for a week until you can get into your new digs?

Hang in there monkey! :)


Glad to see life is rolling on.

Sorry I've been so quiet. RL busy-ness and stuff.

We didn't hardly get any rain from the hurricane, but now the next one might be heading our way.

At least the two storms came Before and After my daughters B-day (and Bday party), instead of ON it as they have done oh so many times in the past! :P

(When your kid is born on Aug 30, and you live in Lousy-anna, Having a Hurricane party instead of a Bday party is a risk you take.) ;)

Pretty much. I am hoping to find a female companion willing to do the Thirties cabaret thing with me, but what will be will be.

I am stuck in my hotel room until Friday.

Then I pick up my apartment keys (hopefully!) that afternoon after work. Then early Saturday I drive to BWI, fly to Boston, take a bus to the Cape, get picked up, pick up my mail, pick up my moving van, pack my things , collect my pooch, drive down to Alexandria, set up my new apartment and visit with my old college buddy

*oy*


Did you update all of your mailing and shipping addresses? That's a about a 12-hour-ish drive from Boston to Alexandria, give or take an hour.


Okay
Forget the strip club.

Anyone wanna go to burlesque with me?

I will once I have my address. It only took me 8.5 hours , I'm hoping to make it the same amount this time. We'll see

I find it amazing how quickly I can get to places faster than Google Maps says I can.

As long as I don't get caught,... ;P

Oy vay!

You KNOW it's a good college buddy when they are willing to visit with you, knowing they are likely to get roped into helping you unload a truck, and they show up anyway. :)

Good luck Pat!

Sounds like your ALMOST there!

So close, and yet so far,... literally in your case. ;P

On the bright side? You won't need to go to a gym this month! :D

My travel times were driving a box truck without an EZ-Pass. Tacks on a disgusting amount of time for that entire stretch of tolled I-95 (Boston all the way south to Baltimore) at the commercial truck rates (which were higher than they are for cars). Between the tolls and the ridiculous number of weigh stations ... blecch.

My buddy actually volunteered to come help me. He lives in Charlotte NC, and I am psyched to see him. It's been 27 years since we met in the flesh. I have very good friends ;)

Speaking of good friends, just hooked up with an old Army buddy who is currently the Director of Public Affairs for the USDA (!!). We had a few drinks at Capitol City brewery. Which was quite nice. They had a lovely amber ale
