Because Styx will be here at City Stages tonight on the Miller's Stage!! I'm parked RIGHT BY IT. I'm tempted to just chill out here downtown after work and wait on 'em. How can one resist seeing Tommy Shaw once again reunited with the rest of the band?

For those who've been asking, I've been suuuuuuuuuper busy working downtown in the financial district with ZERO personal time, whilst the spawnlette commences to get into legal trouble and then catches mono from her new boyfriend. Or so I think.

Greeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaa t. I'm not dead; just a little not here (moreso than usual). :>

*laughs about the spawnlette*

Financial district? Potentially cool.

Financial district = all suits, all the time, baybay.

The drive to work itself is a freakin' book I could've written by now :D :D I'm diggin' it as much as I can or should I suppose. But this morning, streets were closed off for City Stages and Birmingham was a MESS. I parked in the wrong building and might just find my arse towed or something when I leave this afternoon. lol :)

The spawn? You just don't know the half of it. Thank God for good-hearted policemen.

Wow, if she's counting on good-hearted cops, clearly I've missed an update somewhere.

I journaled that incident privately, as I definitely don't want the world knowing about all that. It's bad enough that she was quoting specific court cases (ibid, Arizona v. Gant) in regards to illegal searches, but to drag me in after my bedtime is just plain mean. :D That's what I get for letting her into a law library.

Hey, we should catch up next week :D
Jun. 19th, 2009 06:51 pm (UTC)
You'd hafta call my cell, because I work downtown (horrific traffic from here to home). Do you still have that #? Also, you need to call around 11 a.m., which is when I take lunch and hang out and people-watch whilst yappin' on the phone (in this case, it'll be tu :D I'll even tell ya the real spawn incident!). :D
Jun. 22nd, 2009 06:35 pm (UTC)
I have the number... So, Tomorrow at 11 your time?
Jun. 23rd, 2009 04:23 am (UTC)
11:05 :)
Jun. 19th, 2009 08:49 pm (UTC)
Posting even, Hi T :)

Re: Lookitchu!
Yup, I did.
Jun. 19th, 2009 10:53 pm (UTC)
These *are* the best OF TIMEEEEEES.
Jun. 19th, 2009 10:54 pm (UTC)
Suiteeeeeee Madame Blueeeeeeeee...

I saw Tommy Shaw open for The Kinks in December of '84 (I think) and he did a kick ass version of "Renegade" and a few other Styx tunes. I hope you have an absolute blast. :D

I met the whole band when I was 17, and was kissed by Tommy Shaw :D He's shorter than I am. lol :)
Jun. 19th, 2009 11:10 pm (UTC)
Well, that certainly beats my story. :D

If I were a famous rock star and had the ability to kiss attractive women with impunity, I think I would probably explode.

I was given a backstage pass, and invited to the after party but couldn't go because my best friend and sister rode with me. Bummer!!! He and I got along really well (personality wise). The rest of the band had their wives and kids with them, which I thought was cool.
Jun. 19th, 2009 10:59 pm (UTC)
heh. Only YOU.
Jun. 19th, 2009 11:07 pm (UTC)
The traffic and crowd was already beyond crazy when I left, so I hitched a ride with a golf-cart police to the parking deck and got the hello outta thur :D :D Only me, riding with the police. :D Me and er, the spawn.
Jun. 19th, 2009 11:03 pm (UTC)
You've been missed!
Jun. 19th, 2009 11:08 pm (UTC)
Only by those who've e-mailed me (which I appreciated :) ). I think the haters were diggin' it. Or maybe not, because they tend to be so freakin' obsessive. Probably drove 'em crazy.
Jun. 19th, 2009 11:29 pm (UTC)
Hey, good to see you posting! I kinda assumed you were crazy-busy with work and suchlike, but I'm not one to press or pester people to post... but it sure is nice to see you here again!
Jun. 20th, 2009 04:14 am (UTC)
I was also just getting tired of LJ and needed a break from it. I appreciate your kind words :) I'd gotten to the point to where I wasn't even reading, so I haven't a clue as to what everyone's been up to. Badddddd. I've been doing this since 2002 religiously and daily so it was time for me to take a breather. :> I'm probably still taking it, since this wasn't a full blown entry of the accounts of what took place. lol :D
Jun. 20th, 2009 08:20 am (UTC)
Yes, I understand the compulsion to enter something every day. I'm trying to step back from that myself.

On t'other hand, you write so well, and you're VERY entertaining!
Jun. 20th, 2009 10:25 am (UTC)
Awwwww thank you, sweetie!! :)

Just wait - when you hit your 8-year mark and have girlfriends, ex-girlfriends, exes, crazy dates who didn't get it, etc., you'd get sick of letting them in on the fun (or not), too. It's been a strange ride, Ljing.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
