What's shaking????

Went to see the Finn brothers and Missy Higgins last night at the Bellvoire Ampitheatre which is a fabbo outdoor venue in WA. Excellent night all round.

So, how was the SNL thingy?

The Switchboards are jammed!!!

SNL was awesome. Well U2 was. Top of their game really. For the first time (ever maybe?) a band has played 3 songs on SNL.

Typically a band plays 2, but U2 came out during the closing credits and played I will Follow. Then in the middle of the song, they left the stage and Bono took over the studio. It was great! One of the cast member's on SNL wiped a tear of joy from her eye after being hugged by Bono as he was finishing up then. The he tells the audience that they will do one more song. Unfortunately the broadcast ended and we didn't get it.

I've remained faithful to waiting for the actual release date, but I did get a little frisky by watching U2 perform SYCMIOYO and I was moved by it. I think it's a good song, and I'm looking forward to fully embracing it in just a few days. Knowing that he is singing to his Dad makes a world of difference in how I absorbed the song.

Gotta go to bed now :Wave: I hope you get a chance to see the performances, they were really good and Bono was really trying to win that audience, and by extension the world. He plays a rock-star well

**Doing a little happy dance as shes walking into the bar**



...Tell everybody I'm on my way
New friends and new places to see
With blue skies ahead yes
I'm on my way...


... and it's been snowing tonight!


**Walks up to the desk**

Yeah, I'll just have the drink of the day... whatever that is...

Ok, this one is exclusively for you and the day is gone, but I hope you enjoy

** Pulls out snifter and pours 1 oz Cognac (Hennessy) & 1 oz of Grand Marnier **

This one is called Beautiful not unlike the woman who is about to drink it.

** Goes into the back and fetches American Flag umbrella from the PopMart collection and hands it to Tara **

Here you go, it seemed to work for Bono

** Pours a rum & coke for Tara **

I, for one am glad you are back I hope that the tidal waves that are pulling you under subside today.

** Busies self by looking at the ingredients for the dirty girl scout. **

I feel funny making a girl scout dirty

** Pulls out mixer and pours in Vodka, Kahlua and Bailey's irish cream. Gives it and shake and pours it over ice in the glass **

Now for the piece de resistance!

** Pours White Creme de menthe down the center of the glass. **

Oooh, it doesn't look too attractive, but they say it's tasty. I'm not feeling so hot physically today, so anything might make me

-> I've got this headache that makes my stomach feel ill. I took some advil and I'm waiting to see if everything else follows... It's not flu or cold, probably just dehydrated by too much beer and not enough water last night. It's like a hangover without being drunk. Some barfly I am huh?

I've got a fevah, and there is only one prescription. More Cowbell! Sorry, I couldn't resist

Thanks for the I think I'm coming out of it. I'm less queasy and my head is returning to normal.

I just called Tower Records here and they will be doing the album sale at Midnite. I don't think I'll be able to wait beyond then I went to bed at a decent hour last night, but still feel like I was hit by a Cooper Mini (Editor: A truck would be way too dramatic for how I feel)

Well, I'm headed out for lunch. I need to return to the Apple store to swap some goods. I was overzealous with my iPod and purchased stuff I don't need. I've joined the cult of Apple. God help my soul.

I haven't left yet

Here is what I have bought and what I think about it:

The iPod Dock: I realized that unless you plug speakers directly into it, it doesn't really buy you much in the way of convenience. It doesn't have any extra cords, so it just allows you to stand your iPod up instead of leaving it on the desk. $40 is too much to keep it upright.

The iPod Belt Clip: Horrible! It's hard plastic and it *snaps* on the back. Wouldn't want to repeatedly scratch up the back for that privilege.

The iTalk from Griffin: So far so good, it allows you to record your own voice for note taking etc. I bought it because I sometimes forget stuff while I'm in the car and I would like to be able to record my fantastic thoughts

The iPod Carrying case: (M9129G/A) So far so good, this allows me to holster my iPod which is good and it's relatively soft, but I have to pull the iPod out everytime I want to stop/start it which isn't good. I was told to buy another case which would protect the iPod when slipping it in and out of the holster. That and the apple lady said that I should cut the tag from it because it can scratch the back. No matter what you do, it's going to get scratched up, the question is how long do you fret over it before just enjoying it, warts and all? I'm headed back to the store and I'll let you know what I find for carrying cases that protect.
