Title? Who needs a stinking title, man?

This is a short clip of the chorus of "I will follow you into the dark" from the concert. Sorry for the fidelity. My once high-tech phone is now relegated to a Fisher Price "My Very First Cell Phone'" status. The dude performing it, if you didn't know, is Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie.

The concert was great. There was a two-hour delay because of the weather, but the show went on. Tegan and Sara were the opening group. They did a good job. Rogue Wave were billed second, but were bumped because of time restrictions. DCFC were great. I, like I said before, am not a huge DCFC fan. I was, though, very impressed at their live interpretations of their album work. That is how I measure a band. If they can't play live, it doesn't matter how good their albums are--I don't respect them as much.

I got my CT scan today. The doctors finally got my pre-meds cocktail right to counter my allergic reaction to the iodine dye. I was so relieved, because the way I would be effected by the iodine was not fun at all. Now all that happened was that I sneezed a couple of times and my eyes and testicles felt like they were on fire. Believe it or not, this was major progress. I won't find out what my oncologists find until tomorrow (or today, Wednesday, when you are most likely reading this). I am hoping for a brand-new puppy and they will cut it off of my lung so I can hug, love, and read him bedtime stories at night. Either that, or they just determine that it is scar tissue and not cancer...again!

Imagine this for a second: you are a kid and an angel comes into your room; the angel tells you that your dad is going to sneak into your room one night, naked, and beat you up. This is the reason that I am not God, or an angel. I would be too tempted to mess with people.

I'm off to see the wizard. Peace!

So you're saying that the feeling of your family jewels on fire is not a good thing? Good to know.

Here's hoping for scar tissue. And if you're aching to give hugs and read bedtime stories, you can borrow my kids. I'll even give you the friends and family discount. Yeah, cuz I'm sweet like that.

Scott~ I'd be one funny angel!

Leigh~ I'll post about what happened tonight.

Megatropolis~ LOL! Are having kids that bad? Hey, I guess I could use the experience.

Not bad, but I definitely appreciate my little breaks. The upside of divorce: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and every other weekends "off"! Woo hoo! My kids are actually really good. I kinda like 'em.

But I'm liking this idea... yeah, you need some training.

The Grunt said...

Haha! Now I'm scared. Not of you, but just the whole thought of me taking care of kids. Ahhhhhhh!

Cool that you got to see the show. And cool that you got your CT scan. I have to read your most recent to post to hear the diagnosis.
