A good evening.

Tonight was a good night. Or, at least, there were a few great minutes in it.

Basically, I worked late, came home, hung out, and then went to do some laundry.

Just as I was pulling in to the laundry place, they mentioned on the radio that Crash Test Dummies are coming to town Friday. Now, I happen to love Crash Test Dummies, so I'm feeling pretty good. And really happy that I heard about it by chance now, rather than next week, after I'd missed them.

Then, the guy says he's gonna give away tickets to the show to the next caller. I'm thinking, "Sweet!", and grab my cell phone, expecting there to be no service (laundy place is just past where I can get service). Luck is holding, it's weak, but I have signal. So, I call. . . it's busy. What the heck, let's give it another try. Busy. Last one, just for kicks. . . *ring*.

I'm figuring he must have just finished giving away tickets, and I got in right after it. But, then he pickes up and asks me if I want tickets!

So, yeah, I've got an extra ticket to see Crash Test Dummies in Poughkeepsie, if anyone's interested. ;-)

Replying to comments.

Oh, yeah, the other night when I said I was gonna go through and reply to a bunch of old commends I had noted for replies. . . it didn't happen. I got to like one of them, and then got busy with some stuff.

So, I'll be going through and trying to respond to all of them I have marked down tomorrow evneing. Not that anyone cared, but I figure if I say it here, it gives me some (slight) incentive to actually do it. ;-)

Morphine rocks.

The band, that is.

Back a few years ago, my brother was playing a CD, and I realized that the song was really cool. So, I asked him what it was. He said it was a band called Morphine. Now, Morphine is an interesting band because it consists of only three members. However, there's more that makes this rock band even more unusual.

The bass player is their lead singer, and the other two members play baritone sax and drums. No guitar player.

It gives them a very different, but very cool sound. I'm really liking them.happy

New friend joys!

One of my closest friends, clevergirl's roommate has just joined LiveJournal, after a bit of coaxing. ;-)

She's on LJ as cpregirl.

She's a really cool girl, and everyone should check her out. ;-)
