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.

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.
