The Nickel Creek Concert: One Less Thing To Do Before I Die

April 24, 2007

I will admit, I haven’t been to a ton of concerts in my life, but I’ve been to some. And seeing Nickel Creek live last Friday, something that I have been wanting to do for years, was the best live music experience I have ever had in the quarter century that I have walked this earth. First of all, the band graciously requested a no-smoking policy at the club they performed in. That was wonderful. And thanks to some friends of mine who got there REALLY early and let us stand in line with them, we got to stand on the FRONT ROW. Which, as Lauren said, is the only way that counts. This band is raw talent. And they’re…

A Slight Mix-Up

April 19, 2007

Remember how my brother’s name is David? And my boyfriend’s name is also David? And how that can be confusing to me at times? Take the following text message exchange as an example, which occurred just after I arrived home from spending the evening with Boyfriend. Me: I’m home…what a great day! And I got to finish it off with a little David lovin’–which is of course the best kind. :-) Brother: Oh god im not so sure i wanted to hear that Me: Hahaha that is hilarious that I sent that to you! I’m sure your lovin is great too, just not for me :-) Brother: HahaHaha you meant to send that to david f! Im glad your name…

How About A Little Discretion

April 17, 2007

I’ve been putting in some half-days at the cancer center where I worked for two years before starting nursing school. Sometimes, funny things happen there. For example: A patient had an HIV blood test ordered, among other things, and when he went to the lab to get it done, one of our lab techs (a spacey woman who lacks common sense sometimes) called out down the hall to the other tech loud enough for anyone around to hear, “I need an HIV test run on that one!” The patient was understandably upset, and complained to his doctor. The doctor came into the exam area and started telling us about it. He said, “You just don’t do that kind of thing!…

Tennis Love

April 13, 2007

I’ve been house/dog-sitting again since last Friday, so I haven’t seen Carmen, my roommate, since before then. We finally made plans to hang out last night, but I wasn’t sure what we were going to do until I texted her around 4:30 p.m. to ask. She responded, “I have two free tickets to the tennis match, want to go?” The tennis match she spoke of was part of the men’s clay court championship, which is held at a club which is conveniently located right behind our apartments. We didn’t know who was playing, but it sounded like fun. We strolled on over, slightly late, enjoying the weather. If we had driven there, we would have had to pay ten bucks…
