full life

(no subject)

1. From TPM: "I can't believe Obama is already sitting down with an unpopular, aggressive world leader without preconditions."

2. Kath and I were out and about on both Friday AND Saturday nights. Friday was a going-away party; one of our friends just got a job in Macau. Saturday was a 10th Anniversary party for some other friends of ours; they rented out a private karaoke room and brought a bunch of Guitar Hero discs. Both nights were super fun.

3. So much fun, in fact, that I was successful in breaking down Kath's resistance, and yesterday we got ourselves some Rock Band 2. I've been vocal in my apprehension at buying a game that lets you pretend to be a rock star when that's what I've actually been trying to do with my actual life, but that was before I started playing the drums.

4. The ALBUM OF THE DAY FROM YESTERYEAR is Beastie Boys, "Check Your Head," which made this Monday morning about 1000x easier to deal with.

5. Kath is going on a work retreat; she leaves tomorrow and returns Friday. So that sucks, but it also means I can practice Rock Band drums FOREVER.
