looking at you now, you would never know

Um, hi. I'm crawling out from under my rock to report on the Athlete in-store that Katie and I went to last night at the Borders in downtown San Diego.

And other such amusements of mine for the past few weeks.

So Athlete sorta rocked, despite the fact that they were standing in a Borders, with Joel trying not to sing too loudly into the mic so not to annoy the few shoppers there were hanging around that didn't have the decency to see an ongoing show and stop a moment to clap a bit for them. He kept pulling his face back from the mic on the louder parts of the songs (particularly that certain part of "Wires"), and everything they played was purposefully pretty mellow. No "El Salvador" to stick in my head for years and years. Instead we got -- in no particular order, because I'm not even sure if I'm remembering all the songs and/or not getting them confused with others -- "Half Light", "Wires", "I Love" and "Yesterday Threw Everything At Me". I... think. Katie took some pictures, and I got my new copy of Tourist signed, and it was overall a nice affair despite the fact that the crowd was really more of a gathering of about forty people. I fell in love (for five minutes, like I always do) with the bassist Carey, and his messy blonde hair and accent and blue eyes. I didn't have much to say to Joel or Tim (can we tell I'm still learning their names, and trying to use repetition to keep them in my head for more than five minutes?), but I rambled on at Carey and... um, Steve? about how I didn't know a lot about them, but that Val had sorta made sure that Katie and I fell in love with the band anyway. "I like your friend!", Carey said, and I laughed and made a rather random remark that she'd married a Welshman. Carey says he's sorry, Val. :D

In other news and not so much news, I'm going to see Into the Woods at the Lamb's Players in Coronado on Sunday night. We've bought out the whole theater, and it's a benefit for the San Diego Academy Building Fund. There'll be a lot of co-workers and members going, and it'll be interesting to hang out with them outside of our big little red building.

I left my cell phone at Martin's house, but I'm planning on heading over there tonight to actually pick it up after work. Maybe he'll take me to go get sushi, too. :D Too bad I don't think Matty's in town, I didn't realize how much I'd actually missed him until he was being Weekend Retarded at Red Lobster and I was cracking up. We had a real nice conversation on the couch while Martin was busy trying to take down Rag with his guild in WoW, and I was amazed that he didn't at all seem put off by discussing more than the weather or the other inane type things that we usually talked about when we roomed together. I'm very excited that he's in Riverside so much, and so I'll be able to see him every so often. I also now am really curious to see where he lives in Texas, and have vague plans of asking Martin if he wants to fly out there around his birthday if he'll be in TX then to see it all.

...and now it's back to the grind. TGIF, mates! More later, though, because I had more I wanted to talk about. :)

I'm gonna wear the dress I bought for clubbing, since it is the only one I own that I now, 1) fit into, and 2) isn't a dressy prom dress type thing.

I told her less prom, more church type dress. :)

Have fun. That's my favorite musical, btw. :)

Dude, I just bust up at work about what Carey said. That's freakin awesome. My coworkers made me tell them what was going on 'cause I was laughing so hard. I just sent Matt an email with that whole paragraph so he has to read it. :)

And of course I sent you a text about it only to read that you don't have your phone with you right now! Heh

I figured you'd get a kick out of that. :) I'm looking for your Athlete shirt, btw. The maid tends to put stuff in funny places, and I'm sure it's at the bottom of the hamper or something. I'll dig it up this weekend while I'm doing laundry, wash it, and send it to you.
