A dream come true

Anyone who knows me knows that Nine Inch Nails is my favorite band. Of all time. I have pretty much everything they've put out and have seen them live twice, once in Buffalo over 10 years ago and then a few years ago here in Rachacha. Well, on my daily visit to nin.com, Trent posted that he hung out with Jane's Addiction. The original Jane's Addiction. THE Jane's Addiction. In Trent's long post about getting together with them, his feelings for them, etc. he dropped the bomb that NIN will be putting on one more tour... with Jane's. I almost fell out of my chair. I love Jane's. Love. Them. This would be the concert of all concerts for me. I told my music buddy Jason that if they come REMOTELY close, we are TOTALLY buying tickets. I have no problem traveling or going to a concert preggo, that's for damn sure. So, now it's just a waiting game to see what the tour dates look like. Please, please, please let them come within driving distance.
Here's one of my favorite songs by Jane's from a very recent small gig they played:

Bad Blogger

Ok ok, I know I haven't posted in quite some time. I guess sometimes I feel like I don't have anything worthy to say. Or just the opposite. I feel I have too much to say and get tired thinking about what I want to write before I even get started.

I haven't been up to too terribly much lately (at least, in my mind). I survived another round of cuts at work though is it really worth it because I now have even more responsibilities dumped on me and it's uber-frustrating. Fortunately, I'm addicted to Animal Crossing: City Folk for Wii and playing that makes me forget about the banalities of work...at least for a little while. If anyone else has ACCF and is online, let me know! I want to travel to someone else's town!

I'm trying to finish up the third book (The Amber Spyglass) of the His Dark Materials trilogy. I enjoyed the Golden Compass and thought The Subtle Knife was ok. I need to finish it quickly so I can get started on Johnathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. I've already had to renew the book once from the library and I haven't even cracked it open yet. (GASP! And I had to pay a late fee on top of it! I think that's the first time I've ever returned a book late!!!!)

And for anyone who likes graphic novels, I highly recommend The Walking Dead series. I usually dream about zombies after reading the newest trade. I also keep a jar of pickled eggs in the fridge as zombie survival food (the eggs would so last a long time without refrigeration)...JUST IN CASE!!!
