Post Doc

Well the Saw Doctors seem to have been everything the build-up said they would be. I picked up a t-shirt and a CD (not theirs, though, the side-project one; I wanted to get their first one first) so I'd have change for parking. Ran into the expected crowd including kalikanzara, the birthday boy, laurel, who looked good being out-of-the-house and whom I thought smelled of sugar cookies for some odd reason, kaustin, who looked good next to Laurel, daedala to whom I gave a ride home, and minnehaha, being both of themselves.

K&B secured down-front positions for the opening bands. I sauntered in during the break between acts. I was, probably owing to my experience with the annual mosh pit at the BiL show, put in charge of stopping two particularly enthusiastic and inebriated lady fans from jumping all over minnehahaK and daedala and keeping the front of the stage clear for our little group to see. I got labeled an "asshole" for standing my ground against the constant onslaught but kept the peace for most of the show. As soon as I left for work, it looked like the sight lines broke down.

Overall, an OK experience, despite the lunging, bumping bodies. Good music and most of the folks seemed quite nice. I'll definitely be looking up these guys' CDs.

Tea for the dogs

I sip away at an echinacea tea, letting the warm liquid soothe and loosen my throat. Mail and LJ keep me occupied for now but I'll probably move on to ripping the CD I got at the Saw Doctors show last night before long.

And before too long, I should be getting dog visitors. Every Wednesday, friends bring their dogs over to socialize with ours. It's good for all of them and it means I have a big, wriggly yellow lab mix to sleep with all day.

Ericka wanted to know if I'd gotten the names and address of the "bimbos" that were slamming in to me at the show last night. No one, apparently, calls me an "asshole" and gets away with it. I assured her that I was not harmed in any way.

Relapse

No, anney, not that kind of relapse.

My cold or whatever it is has battled back. I am more feverish and still have this lump in my throat. I've counter-attacked with garlic pitas and garlic hummus as well as more conventional acetaminophen and plan on a homeopathic assault in a short time.

Still, this likely means that I'll miss work again tonight.

Ericka says I have a pattern of getting sick after nights in hotels. I'll have to keep that in mind for Minicon and drink more, fluids that is.

In any case, let this be notice for you, gentle reader, to post to your LJ, send me email and otherwise entertain me for the evening.
