Hi/bye again, Dazz *Waves*!

Tara, glad you're feeling better. And to Kristin.

Wow. Yeah, no kidding...that's insane that some species have managed to last that long.

Haven't spiders been around for zillions of years, too? They're one of the ones who could survive "the end", so to speak? That doesn't fascinate me as much .

Geeking out about something is good! I like geeky people.

Haha ! I'd be fine with those suggestions!

I'd KILL to hear the Jools version of "Velvet Dress" live . I love BOTH versions of that song. Don't think I've ever heard any live versions of "Velvet Dress", though, I should poke around and find a good one. "Hawkmoon" is a great choice, too. Speaking of sexy as hell songs...

Oh, dear. Hope you manage to do that at some point-best of luck to you with all of that!

I'm surprised they've lasted as long as they have. It still has full music and video sections, as well as clothing, toys, collectibles, even musical instruments like guitars. Mostly I still like to go there and flip through the u2 section, even though I already have it all, the chance at finding a cd single I don't have yet is the thrill of looking. I'm going to miss that when they're gone.

They used to have a ginormous Beethoven head on the 3rd level, like as big as a car or something. But it wasn't there anymore when I took the pics. LOL







Do any of you have an Amoeba Records nearby? They are REALLY cool, and have everything in music, new and used. I go there to look for old vinyl U2. I have to drive up to Hollywood for it though.
That place looks awesome. What a shame it's closing! I'd definitely want to spend some free time and money THERE.

We don't have an Amoeba Records here, no. I've never been in one of those, I don't know if there's any near where we live. My CD buying options in town consist of Target, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy. KMart does have some CDs, too, but they don't have all that great a selection. Target and Best Buy are my most likely places to find stuff I like, but even then there's still things I can't always find at those stores, really cool obscure CDs or older U2 singles or whatever .

Saw others mentioning the weather-yeah, it's chilly here today, too! Cloudy and windy and we've had a few rain showers here and there...I don't think it even got to 50 degrees today.

It's supposed to be a bit cooler all week-around 70 for a high at most, otherwise 60s and the occasional 50s. Which I'm fine with. Cooldown is nice.

And, on a side note, what U2 singles do you have? *has a few, but had to special order them through Amazon*
Yes, so far we do have Sam Goody, but we hear it won't be around too much longer, sadly. Our Suncoast is long gone though. And Amoeba is AWESOME.

I have a ton of singles. Lots of early stuff (Joshua Tree and earlier) on vinyl singles and later (Achtung Baby and newer) stuff on CD singles. U2 has a thing for putting out a zillion different versions of their singles too. So for example there are many different versions of the Vertigo single, all with the same normal Vertigo song, but with different B-sides. Still, they were fun to collect at the time. I remember after HTDAAB came out I'd go check Tower (RIP ) all the time and have the thrill of finding another new single had been released with different b-side songs, even though I already had the same a-side songs a few times over. Oh U2 you are so cute the way you make me spend all my money.

Thanks, dazz. It's all okay. Today was my last day, and I was giddy as I was leaving. My supervisor mentioned that they will probably request to have me back again soon. I just said thanks and left. What I didn't say is "no way in hell, buddy." Not unless I get a different position. And even then I don't know.

I did get some good news this afternoon, though. There's an office job opening that's about a 10 min drive away from my house, and the temp agency submitted my resume for the job. However, I was the 3rd person they submitted, so who knows if I'll even get it. I'm going to call the agency first thing tomorrow morning to see what's up with that, since they were supposed to call/email me back by the end of the day but I never heard from them. It's a higher paying job, and it's a long term (6-12 months) contract, with a potential raise after 3 months. So that's pretty good! We'll see what happens.


We don't have very many good record stores around here. We used to have a 3 story HMV building downtown, which was fabulous, but I heard that it recently closed. What a shame! They had 2 floors of music stuff, and one floor of movies/TV shows, etc. It was a great store to go into. I wonder what will take its place...

Providing I'm not working next week, I'm going to spend a full day downtown just having fun and maybe doing a (very little) bit of shopping before going out to dinner with my BFF that night. I'd obviously prefer to spend the day having fun and being outside, but if I'm working, that's okay too.

I really miss Sam Goody... as it is, I have to drive down to Salt Lake now just to get to FYE .

Yeah, I pretty much have to go to Minneapolis or Des Moines or some other bigger city (Iowa City, Sioux City) to go to any of those kinds of stores . Thank goodness for online retail.

Thora, cool to hear that about them submitting your resume for the other job! Good luck, I hope something works out with that . Especially given it's not too far from where you live-all the more perfect.

Thanks! They gave me the company name so I could look them up, and they sound pretty decent, although it's hard to know what the office is like (one of many locations in N America) based just on that. But we'll see what happens tomorrow when I give the agency a call.

I'm SO excited to sleep in a little bit tomorrow.

Forget the flinging - all the hardcore fans would explode!

Acrobat OTOH would make the internet explode after millions of fans spontaneously combust

So this is mainly for Amy and Thora, but I'm desperately looking for a friend to do the Warrior Dash with - all of my friends are either busy or broke but I want to do this race SO FREAKIN BAD!!! Take a look at the course!

Warrior Dash | Arizona

(don't worry, I'm not asking you to fly down here and do it with me, I just thought you all would appreciate it)
