I Feel Numb. Burn With a Weak Heart. Guess I Must be Having Fun

Here we are taking a clean "before" pic. We were headed to a metal show where things generally get messy.

So, Saturday was WAY more mellow than Friday. I had been invited to a couple of BBQ's but after I ran and did some stuff with the girls, I fell asleep. I missed both of them and had to do a bit of scurrying to get to the Dublin my 9'ish.


There were plenty of tattooed folk at the show. Apparently, my friend K. takes her tattooed folk very seriously.

We had a drink and were off to see the RAWK! at the Picador. It was a lot of fun...If not very loud. A guy in one of the bands came up to me and told me he couldn't find his camera and wondered if I'd take a few pics of them playing. What a question...I was going to anyway.

Until she sees something funny. Then she's over the severity of it all.

Mr. B. said he was going to be at the show, but I didn't believe him. I was right. He never made it, and I was pretty glad. One less thing.

Here is FMDM playing his geeeeetar.

We got there just in time to see FMDM's band. They have been playing on weekdays a lot, when I can't go, so it was nice to finally catch them again.

Here are some boys making suggestive rock hands.

Here is my friend John blocking out his bandmate's face.

Around midnight, I was pretty beat. It's hard for me to go out two nights in a row, and I usually really feel it on the second night. So, even before the last band finished, I decided to take off.

Here we are in our "after" shot. See why we make a point to take the earlier one?

I made it home before one and went straight to sleep. No muss, no fuss. I love a dramaless night.

that's how you know youre a grown-up (in the good way)--when you no longer need drama to have a fun time :)

Rock on!

I went out and saw X a few weeks ago, and had the dreadful realization that they were not very loud. I have a feeling that they were playing pretty loud-- I've just lost a lot of my hearing from the hundreds of shows I went to in my illustrious youth.

I bet there some kind of formula for figuring out the amount of fun had just by comparing the before and after pictures :-)

I have to laugh, then maybe sigh a little in envy, that this is considered one of your mellow nights....

I gotta get out and see some live bands. I've been lying low and trying to get rid of this heartburn.

Looks like a wild time in the old town tonight.

You look just as energetic in the after picture! Good job!

Ananda,

Thanks. I love that dress. I just didn't realize how much it showed the pit stains until I saw the pics. oops.

Susan,

It was good, loud fun.

Em,

I've never needed drama to have a good time. I've spent much of my life running away from it. Drama makes my head hurt.

Johnny,

Oh, I know. I try to wear hearing protection now, but I didn't when I was younger and the damage is done.

LauraB,

It's not one of my mellow nights. It just had WAY less drama than the night before.

AlienCG,

You should. Maybe the RAWK! will knock the heartburn out of you.

Mr Manuel,

I always have energy. I'm just a lot messier by the end of the eveining.
