Those were the two ways I missed two of the three planned concerts this weekend. I saw the Built To Spill show as planned on Friday night, although I have to admit to leaving at 12:35am because I was tired and didn’t expect the show to be a late one. Saturday I was in no mood to go out, especially to a club to I have never been. And Sunday a bike ride and too much beer did me in. When I got home I decided to take a short nap to recuperate for the Ben Kweller show, unfortunately “short” turned into “two hours” and when I woke up it was too late to rally to go to the show.
No Wii For Me (aka Wee)
What a bummer! I heard that a pre-sale of Nintendo’s next generation console known as the Wii (pronounced “we”, or “oui”) was happening at GameStop/EB stores on Friday. I also heard that the pre-sale would end at each store once the allotted units had been purchased. So at 10:30am I strolled over to Perimeter Mall (have you heard that there is an Apple Store there now?) with the intention of making a pre-sale purchase. Somewhat to my surprise the pre-sale was already over by the time I arrived at the store.
Oh well. I now predict that I will probably never own a Wii because that’s the type of person I am. When I get all wound up about buying something I either complete the transaction immediately, or never at all. Only time will tell.
I was completely in awe on Saturday morning. While driving up Moreland Avenue like I have so many times before I saw something that I have never seen happen in real life and I wish I was able to photograph the sequence.
There is a Church’s Chicken at the corner of Moreland and Wylie. While driving through that intersection I saw a large bird of prey (hawk or falcon) with its wings fully extended swooping down under the Church’s street-level sign. Seconds later I saw the bird fly from the ground with a rodent in its talons. While I certainly felt badly for the rodent I am well aware that this is all part of the circle of life.
This was a fantastic dinner (Citrus Curry Beef) that I made Saturday (to cushion the blow of the losses ahead of me).
Bad Weekend For My Orange And Blue
Well, I had that deep feeling in my gut that I was not going to be happy come Sunday morning, and I was unfortunately right. Not only did my Mets underwhelm this weekend, my beloved Gators also dropped a game that they could have won. I give much credit to Auburn who I knew would be a good enough team to make sure that they wouldn’t lose two consecutive games at home.
What does this all mean to my life? Truth be told not a whole lot more than bragging rights which get me a whole lot of nothing in the real world.
