Because I’ve been busier than usual the past few days and haven’t been able to post much so here’s a roundup. Thursday night Anne and I went to see Jonathan Coulton live in concert at The Ark here in Ann Arbor. It’s a very small venue which meant even sitting in the very back row you got a great view. We had reserved seats that put us fairly close, but not so close that our hearing was damaged by the sound system. That evening was the first time I had seen the duo Paul and Storm, who often perform with JoCo, do their own act as the opening band. They have some pretty funny stuff and are a great warm up for Jonathan. Afterward we bought a P&S CD and a JoCo USB 2GB Flashdrive that has every song he’s ever done with all the album artwork and other stuff preloaded on it. Then we got in line for the meet and greet thinking we were at the end only to end up at the beginning where we got to be the first to express our enjoyment to the man himself as well as snap this pic:
Which was very cool indeed. It’s a great show and if you get the chance to catch him live in your town I would highly recommend it.
Friday work was hectic as hell and I only got time to put up the last entry which was mainly a YouTube video. Yesterday was spent over at family friend’s Darlene and Michael’s place where I returned the desktop PC I fixed for them. They treated us to a wonderful homemade Chicken Alfredo dinner and then I played some WoW with Mike while the girls played cards. Today will be busy running a couple of errands before heading over to the in-law’s place to celebrate a birthday for Anne’s sister Alica.
So, yea, fairly non-stop for the past few days, but a good kind of busy. I did find time to get my emo jack o’ lantern into the window, but that’s been the extent of our Halloween decorations so far. I’m hoping to get a few more things up before the day arrives. We’ll actually be attending a Halloween party this year so we’re also looking into costume ideas.
How about you guys? Anyone dressing up? If you are, what are you dressing up as? Any suggestions for costume ideas for me?
