I like the new avatar and sig, April

So my boss came in at 9, told me to sit and wait until she finished checking her e-mail, then she'd give me something to do. Two hours later, she's just getting done, and an old friend of hers comes in to the office and starts talking to her. Another hour goes by and the friend finally leaves at 12:45. So we start working. 45 minutes later she says "we're done, let's go home". Then she asks me if I'm still planning on going to the concert tomorrow night. I am, so then she says "well don't bother coming in tomorrow then. I'm only going to be here for an hour or two in the morning and I'm sure you'd rather sleep in than come in and sit around again." So I finished work at 1:30 today, and now I have a 4-day weekend and all day to sleep in and drink before the concert tomorrow night.

Government jobs

Sweet!

What concert are you going to?


Japanese food has been ordered, and should arrive in 20 minutes.

The Joel Plaskett Emergency. They're a local band from Halifax, so I doubt you've heard of them out in Van City, but here he'll draw probably 9,000-12,000 people to the show tomorrow night. It's gonna be the kickoff to the second-biggest party weekend of the summer in Halifax!

It was a box lunch: miso soup, some tempura, rice, chicken teriyaki, sunomono, california roll, and I think that's it. It was enormous, but I was so hungry I ate everything except the rice. It was so delicious!

The name does sound somewhat familiar, but it could be my brain playing tricks on me. Sounds like it will be a great event!

Plus, the concert venue is an open-air terrace right on the waterfront, so the view will be incredible. I hear the show last year (same venue, same time of year - I couldn't go 'cause I had to work) was one of his best ever, so I'm hoping it'll be unreal once again.

I think you sent me a couple of their songs once.

I'm debating running when I get home tonight. I just bought a pedometer last night so I want to try it, then again I feel lazy. Then again I know I'm probably not going to have any time to workout over the weekend...

Decisions, decisions...

Are they as derivative of U2 as every other band on the planet, past, present, and future?

Yeah, Joel Plaskett sings into a mic (copying off Bono) and plays guitar (copying off Edge). And his band has a bass player and a drummer too, clearly they are ripping off U2
