I think Brian is going to write about the Iron Maiden show we went to last night so I won’t bother except to say that 1) it triggered my crowd phobia, 2) it was uber-male, even beyond what I thought it would be, and 3) I am really glad I wore earplugs. Not the worst experience of my life by far, yet I doubt I will be attending another heavy-metal stadium show anytime soon. I just can’t deal with that many people in one place, the heat, the smoke, and the machismo – no matter how good the stage show is going to be..
I am finding that I have little to say this week – personal updates more than political ones being the norm. But that’s okay I suppose. Mostly I’m starting to feel the weight of my new union position as the obligations to be here and be there are piling up. Events that I would have begged out of a year ago are now a part of what is expected of me and I am quickly losing the time that I need for friends and relaxing. Which is one of the reasons that I’ve started scheduling exercise in, cause if I don’t it just doesn’t happen in between everything else.
I’m feeling a little squeezed though at the moment, and hoping that no one is offended by my absence from pretty much everything lately. I do want to hang out. I really do. It’s just difficult to do everything at the same time.
Iron Maiden?! Jonathan will be jealous!
Me too. Jealous. Wow. Are you saying that you didn’t feel compelled to sing the chorus to “Run to the Hills”?
Almost. Which is just a testament to the showmanship really.
*lol* You are a hard woman. I’m sure Brian appreciated you taking one for the team, anyway. 🙂
ha ha …you couple of rednecks (being one myself I of course recognize it :)….just wanted to let you know that I am interesting in doing the blog project but can only commit to one a month…I am going to do a restaraunt review of the Pho place near 7-eleven….talk to you soon
Try the Iron Maidens. Better than the original!
