I kicked off my Birthday Weekend with a rock concert last night (what better way right?) with one of my favourite bands, Billy Talent! Christin and I had general admission tickets, which is really where all the fun is, not in the seats. I shocked the hell out of some students from work, they seemed shocked that their "librarian" would like Billy Talent but I think I proved that I can rock it out just as good as they can at almost twice their age.
First up was Cancer Bats - never heard of them before, they verge on heavy metal. They had a good beat.
Next was Against Me - they're good, they had opened up for the Foo Fighters when I saw them.
Finally, the headliner -- BILLY TALENT I rocked it out jumping and flailing my arms, shoving when others were shoving, singing at the top of my lungs the whole time (I knew every song on the set list). By the end of the show I was one person away from the security barrier at the stage. What a blast!
Christin was a sweetie and treated me to a concert t-shirt as part of my b-day gift (for a change they were 25$ instead of 40$ for a t-shirt)! Since she bought me my t-shirt, I treated myself to a hoodie (again, a reasonable 55$).
Christin and I have another concert coming up in two weeks : NICKLEBACK (we call them "the boys), again we'll be rocking it out on the floor in general admission.
Today I've got some great b-day plans, Christin and I will be going to the gym for a nice workout (only a masochist goes to the gym on their b-day... actually I've put on 5lbs this month and I'm beating them off .5 lbs at a time!). I'm meeting two friends from work for lunch, then I'm heading over to my parents for a pot roast dinner, a very old friend of theirs that they haven't seen since I was 6 months old is in Canada and coming by for a visit.
I think I'm going to have an enjoyable day!
