Couple Things

I think I'm growing tired of Trebuchet, so I may try Georgia for awhile (but it looks kinda girly, no?).

Scissor Sisters cancelled Sunday night (thanks Dop for the invite!). That makes my Chicago concert record 0 for 2.*

I heard a radio ad yesterday that
Dominick's is now selling flu vaccinations. Yes, you can get a flu shot and your milk all in the same place. Is this supposed to be a good thing? Personally, I don't think I want to shop in a store where my broccoli and live attenuated influenza virus co-exist under the same roof. But that's just me.

[Also as an aside, I've never ever ever - and I mean ever - met anyone who got the flu vaccine and didn't end up either: 1) getting sick as a direct result of getting the shot, or; 2) contracting the flu over the course of the winter anyway.]

And in related news,
WTF????:Sorry Richard, but I think this is going to be a long winter. You know, considering that it's starting in October this year.

* The first concert, Depeche Mode, cancelled back in May and never rescheduled. Intonation, Pitchfork and Lollapalooza don't count as they were technically not concerts, but outdoor music festivals.

I once got a flu shot in my ex-boyfriend's mother's dark Portland condo kitchen.

It made me feel dirty. Like a junkie.

"Freezing temperatures in the upper 20's to start the day?"

Will people please pollute more so we can get some more momentum behind this whole global warming thing?

We need to break this concert slump! How about My Morning Jacket the day after Thanksgiving? You will be dancing around like Little Superstar when they start jammin'.

Man, I'll be freezing my balls off playing football on the lake tomorrow! I second your WTF!

Regarding your concert dry spell, I agree with Dr. Ken's suggestion of the MMJ show, but that is far too far away. There are plenty happening before then, I'll keep you posted.
