So here is where you can post random places where you went! :wink:

Last Tuesday I went to Fish's Return to the childhood tour.
He sung 2.5 hours :shock: .. including the complete misplaced childhood and some extras.
It was also his 48th birthday!

Hmm . . . I walked to the grocery store yesterday. It was muddy and humid. The cashier complimented me on my signature. :roll:

I went down to the kitchen about an hour ago and made and Egg "Mac" Muffin- that's the Scottish version- scrambled eggs, with onions, green peppers an melted cheese and "corned beef" on an oversized hamburger bun. I suppose corned beef is Irish too, but for safe measure I need to go back and have a bowl of Lucky Charms now to appease the spirits of my Irish ancestors too.

This is a silly thread. As such, I like it. Well, I just went to Chinatown on Friday. And then today I just came back from Mass. It was a lovely day, all rainy, so I walked. :) Last night I watched like 3 and a half hours of python. Every single time I show people python, they only want to see Spanish Inqquisition, which gets a little old, but today no one even asked about it... until some new people walked in and requested it.. But after three hours of not mentioning that sketch, I really finally was not expecting the Spanish Inquisition. I should have.

Well I went to school on Friday, then I went to the movie store and rented Final Fantasy Advent Children. Then I watched it and went to bed. The power went out for about 2 seconds as I was posting this, so I had to do all that work and come back and repost it.

hmm, yes a silly thread, but sweet in a slice of life kind of way. Yesterday went to Ithaca. First went to a local sci fi bookshop and picked up Christian Mythmakers: C.S. Lewis, Madeleine L'Engle, J.R.R. Tolkien, George Madonald, G.K. Chesterton, and Others. Then visited the comics shop where I bought the latest X-Men penned by Joss Whendon (#14), a Dark Phoenix collection, Witchblade #98, and League of Extraordinary Gentelmen vol. 1. Then for some hiking around the gorges, took some photos, and finally dinner at Moosewood. Very pretty day out. Spring is on the move!

I've heard this book is wonderful and have been meaning to read it for awhile. btw, love the Arnold verse in the sig Steve. Dover Beach by MA is a long-time favorite of mine.

I attended a Filipino Fighting Arts seminar all day Saturday, conducted by two bonafide legends of the Phillipines. Didn't get dinged up too bad; I was just glad after we were through with the knife drills I didn't "let my fingers do the walking"! PANG! PANG!
Wheee!

take me to the other side

This morning I wandered over to the old analog side of the studio and on the floor behind the reel to reel multitrack I discovered a box of aging old Scotch 2 inch reel to reel tape- still unopened.
(Somewhere near Boston, Tom Scholz will be shedding tears of joy upon hearing it still exists.) Of course that is until I open it and it turns into mystery magnetic dust and flakes right before my eyes.

I went to Chattanooga on Friday. I went to Chattanooga on Saturday. This is getting to be a habit, maybe I should just move on down there.

I went to C-town twice, and didn't visit either the Rave or Guitar Center. Something is seriously wrong with me.
