“social” outings


so, monday night at the commodore.  My brother’s opening for a band.  Before he starts, i take a quick look around the room.  What I have illustrated here is NOT an exaggeration!  there was a literal line of about ten people RIGHT in front of me who were ALL identically posed, looking at their cell phones.   SURELY, once the music starts, people will put their phones away… right?  no.  obviously not.  As a youth pastor, I guess i figure that is just how youth act in public, but man alive, adults are WAY worse then students.  Remember when going to see someone play music was about going to see someone play music?  When did a concert become about us as individuals?  Anyways.  whatever.   Andy played well, and the commodore’s sound people are useless as always, and everyone got a bunch of killer tweets and status updates and texts out of it.


Is there any better way to wake up?

The weather is perfect… that point in the fall where you open the window, and the room cools down just enough to make sleeping incredibly comfortable and easy.  Unfortunately, it also makes waking up unreasonably difficult…  Sometimes, that duvet is just so “let me sleep forever” first thing in the morning.  A buddy of mine pulled a fight club and reminded me that, as a guy, it is my duty to not know what a duvet is; but i tell yah, first thing in the morning…  I’d trade quite a bit to stay in that blanket’s embrace!  Oh duvets, you’ve won my sleepy respect, and dare I say… love?

In any case, I know my nyan-cat reference is internet-old, but seriously…  that hyperactive cat was the only thing that snapped me out of my morning grogginess.  That, and three cups of coffee.

…who am i kidding, four.  FRESH PAAAHHHT!
