I’m so happy for you Katie! I know the hell of being an overly-educated person looking for a job and also the relief that comes from (having a real job and) convincing yourself that you haven’t wasted the last several years of your life. Non-Swanson sounds like icing on the cake. Congratulations!!!
The sun came out right at this moment! Felt like it had been gone for at least 5 months! Heard yesterday that it had been the darkest winter for about 60 years over here! Trying to find my sunglasses now and hitting the road for beautiful Strasbourg & Local Natives tonight!
I am indeed. Saw a German band called Madsen and and Walter Schreifels. The show was a little shock to the system – it was literally full of teenage girls, some with parents – it was pretty funny to see them fawning. We’ve all been there!
True. I don’t know if I was lucky or unlucky that I grew up in the middle of nowhere, with older parents who definitely weren’t going to take me to a rock and roll show, but I never saw a band live until I was in college.
Now I’m trying (and failing miserably) to imagine my adolescent self with either of my parents at a Queen concert.
Haha – I think your appreciation is totally different when you experience live music at a certain age. It’s always funny to see those first time couples who’ve only just broken into adolesence or kids who still resent their parents for cramping their style… If only they knew how lucky they are to have parents who would come with them.
Today, I am constructing a presentation to some MSK GPs about foot posture, identification, and resultant injured structures whcih may arise. I enjoy putting together stuff like that, and sharing knowledge.
My favourite presentation was one i did about my daughter, who has Coeliac disease, Dx aged 18/12s
Today, i woke up after dreaming about TN. I was in a large hall, it was a school reunion sat next to friends I hadn’t seen for 20 odd years. In the hall was a big beam back from a massive indoor concert hall. The National were playing. As the beam back was playing, it showed pictures of folks dressed up in all sort of weird costumes (in the UK, imagine lads at the darts or the cricket) and Matt decsribing the various costumes he could see. Unfortunately, as the beamback panned around the concert hall/venue, there were masses of empty seats, which disturbed me somewhat.
