-When Meri lays with me on the couch, she almost always has a paw touching me. I find it completely endearing. That said, when she lays with me on the bed, she practically flops her 30 pound body onto mine and it often knocks the breath out of me. #MeriMeriQuiteContrary #goatdog
-I almost called in sick on Tuesday because my head hurt so bad from pressure front/weather. Instead, I opted to work from home. The fact that I need all the PTO I can get for Germany next June was seriously my only reason for working. #priorities
-Tuesday, when Meri wasn't roached out beside me (roached = sleeping on her back with her legs in the air), she spent her remaining time on the back of the loveseat watching it rain and waiting for the feral neighborhood cats to meander onto our driveway. At which point she would go freakin' crazy whining and barking at the cat and running back and forth between the loveseat and the back door. #huntingdogs
-When people put spaces after slashes (/) my inner grammar nazi starts screaming. It is not this / that. It is: this/that. Always. Forever. NO SPACES WITH SLASHES!!! #grammarnazi
-Despite the headaches that the rain has been presenting to me, naps/sleeps while it rains are epic. #Ilovetherainthemost
-Teh German said that he didn't really get excited about Christmas last year until the 20th of December because that's when he left for Germany... all because it wasn't cold here. #preachintothechoir
-2 months after Phil's dental, I'm still super pumped that he had teeth pulled and that his breath is SOOOOOO much better. That said, I'm also doing better about brushing both dog's teeth. #win #myfacenolongermeltsoff
-I haven't made any moves on the house-front since Teh German and I discussed it. I did possibly find a realtor who I would trust (he's friends with Teh SC House Finder and he helped them find their house), so that's a step in the right direction. When discussing the situation with him, he agreed that my first step should be to go to the bank and see what I can afford. Hopefully being completely debt free will help. #procrastination #debtfree #untilIbuyahouse #firstworldproblems #howmuchdoesahutcost
-I felt slightly guilty Tuesday. I worked from home all day because of a 2 day headache that wouldn't go away (thanks Barometer Head), but in the afternoon it stopped raining, so I was better. Since I had no headache, Teh German and I carried on with our plans for 1/2 Price Burger Night @ Moe's, then headed to Music Farm to see Trapt. #Iwasntfaking #Iswear
-I failed to bring earplugs and the music was too loud. #getoffmygrass
-I was glad we only paid $15 to see Trapt. I couldn't tell if the acoustics at the venue were crappy (which I had been told was an issue) or I'm just overly sensitive to loudiness (which is a possibility). For the first band, Area 51 or something related, we couldn't understand 90% of the words the guy was singing. The bands got progressively better, which was good, not to mean the first band was bad, but they reminded the audience at least twice that this was their 4th ever live performance and they didn't even have merchandise for purchase (oops). We also heard Atvian? and Process One?* It was after my bedtime and I can't remember the names. The set changes took forever. Trapt didn't even go on stage until 11 and the concert technically started at 8. The intro bands played 30-45 minutes + set changes.
Also, I hate encores. No. Just play all the songs you know people want to hear. That said, if you gained most of your followers off the album you released in 2003 and no one really knows anything from your new albums, just stick with the 2003 songs that made you good. Trapt "finished" their set with Headstrong and "walked off stage" but then the crowd starts chanting, one more song (as Teh German and I have started to leave) and the band comes back out and does 2 more of the popular songs from the 2003 album.
That said, the final song was Stand Up and if These Walls, Headstrong, Hollowman, and Echo hadn't brought me back to my senior year of high school already, Stand Up would have immediately transported me back to 2003, in Teh Silver Streak (as Teh Dad called it), blasting that song to try and sing through the pain and anger of whatever Teh Mom had done that time.
*The intro bands were: First Decree, Adakain, Wicked Love, Vault 51
