So, this year my birthday turned into more of an event than a day. It started three weeks ago with my trip to the CSI exhibit, followed the next weekend by getting to see my most favorite band the Posies.

The Posies were awesome as always, a very small show, which consdering I couldn't do my usual follow the band around the East Coast for a few days, I thought was kind of treat. I finally was able to give the guys the Posies license plates I've been carrying around for years and I think both bwb and b. really enjoyed the show as well. I had so much fun and I must thank my friend R. for lettting me know about the show, as I've been so out of touch I would have missed it! Lots of songs from Frosting on the Beater and Amazing Disgrace, a few from the new album, and one from Dear 23.

It continued to be an event for the actual celebration day of my birth. I came home at lunch to walk the little guy and walked onto my back porch to see our dead, leaning tree no longer really leaning at a 45 degree angle, but hanging about 10 feet above the roof. Well, actually resting on some small tree branches above our fence. Decided we better scrap plans to go out and stay in just in case the tree fell in an unexpected manner, on our house. As it was, the tree waited until we had run out on an errand Saturday.

Saturday night met the folks for a delicious dinner at Magiano's. I have to say just how cool my dad is. Sis and I had given him tickets to the Rolling Stones for Father's Day and he had gone to the show this week. He was so excited, he kept saying how it was the best show of his life and anytime anyone walked in earshot, he'd raise his voice and talk about how he'd just seen the stones. We laughed and remained amazed that Mick and ole' zombie Keith Richards (we are convinced Keith Richards died years ago, and is now resurrected as a zombie) can still put on such a great show. Then Dad listed all the shows he had gone to over the years (an impressive list, I might add) and I realized where my love of music comes from. We decided that the next time REM tours, we'll go see them together, because he's also the big fan of REM.

So an eventful birthday. I almost forgot I turned 34.

Oh, and I got my very own roller skates. Hee!

Friday Five

I don't really care for this Friday Five:

1. How long have you had your LiveJournal/blog?

I think I've had a blog in some form or another for over a year. I didn't post to it for most of that year, as well.

2. What do you consider to be the main purpose of your LiveJournal/blog?

To keep up with friends and make myself write.

3. If you could change something about your personal blogging style, what would it be?

I had something more interesting to say.

4. What are your criteria for adding someone to your friends list/blog roll?

They are my friend? I remember to?

5. Name one thing that you've never before written about in your LJ/blog.

I haven't been writing to it for very long, so most things I haven't written about.

From the Friday Fiver:

1. Have you ever been to the emergency room?

Couple o' times.

2. What's the worst pain you've ever had?

The spinal taps I had when I had spinal menigitis when I was four. Maybe it wouldn't hurt that badly now, but I can still remember how much it hurt then and that was 30 years ago.

3. If you could choose your doctor, do you prefer someone of the same or opposite sex?


4. Do you take vitamins?


5. Would you prefer to go to the doctor, the dentist or go sky diving?

Sky Diving
