Dad’s Garage Theater is celebrating its 10th season this weekend.
For all the ups and downs I’ve had with this place over the years, in the final analysis, I would not have had the wonderful friends, wife, and life I have now without it. The importance of that peculiar institution (Dad’s, not slavery) simply can’t be overstated.
So, a tip of the hat to the Little Theater That Sometimes Could, and best wishes for another 10.
[2005-06-23 : 11:38:48] : Do you still go out for lunch?
[2005-06-23 : 11:43:16] : Very rarely.
[2005-06-23 : 11:43:34] : I’m thinking about going to Buffalo Wild Wings at some point soon.
[2005-06-23 : 11:43:54] : You don’t seem like a Buffalo Wild Wings sort of person to me.
[2005-06-23 : 11:44:10] : No, I’m not. It’s professional curiosity.
[2005-06-23 : 11:44:16] : I mean, I like wings and all.
[2005-06-23 : 11:45:13] : Professionally?
[2005-06-23 : 11:45:26] : Investment-professionally.
[2005-06-23 : 11:45:42] : Oh that’s right.
[2005-06-23 : 11:45:45] : I’d forgotten.
[2005-06-23 : 11:45:51] : Not that I’m a professional investor. I just don’t know what else to call that type of interest.
[2005-06-23 : 11:46:06] : Amateur.
[2005-06-23 : 11:46:15] : amateur curiosity?
[2005-06-23 : 11:46:16] : Avocational.
[2005-06-23 : 11:46:21] : That’s a good one.
[2005-06-23 : 11:46:31] : I know a lot of words.
[2005-06-23 : 11:46:43] : I’ve heard.
[2005-06-23 : 11:47:25] : An avocational investor. That’s a good phrase to keep handy.
[2005-06-23 : 11:47:47] : Also, an avocational improvisor.
[2005-06-23 : 11:49:33] : Also, an avocational reader.
[2005-06-23 : 11:50:01] : An avocational poop-taker. There’re really no limit with this adjective!
[2005-06-23 : 11:50:07] : Indeed!
I’ve got LiveJournal again at work.
They must have turned off the web blocking.
Now, to go surfing for porn…
System of the World: Volume 3 of the Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson
Well, that’s it. I’m done with the trilogy, as of Tuesday. And I’m really sad. I simply wanted it to keep going. I read the last page of the Acknowledgements as my plane door opened in Atlanta from Arkansas this past week.
But the third volume was a great ending, and thoroughly enjoyable throughout.
Now, I feel I need to re-read Cryptonomicon. And thus, I will.
After a 20 year lull, I am now the proud owner of another Apple product, thanks to .
The only downside is that I had to add another year to my age to get it.
Now, about those PodCasts that are all the rage with the kids these days…
How could I have missed Hitchhiker’s in the theater?
My 13 year old self is kicking my shins right now. Really hard.
Now we have to buy a larger television in preparation for the DVD. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy simply cannot be first viewed on a crappy 20″. Plus, I need to finally hang the rear surround speakers that have been sitting on a shelf for a year and a half.
