Out of Concert
You know, it's really frustrating to be as lazy and inattentive as I am sometimes. I'm missing all these awesome concerts. Nickelback is coming to town, as are the All American Rejects and Fallout Boy (that would be one hell of a show...wish I'd remembered to buy tickets...*sigh*). Deathcab For Cutie's got a show coming up in March I think. I'm trying to decide if I want to shoot for that one. I like a respectable amount of their stuff. Anybody got feelings one way or the other? Omaha's a great concert venue; that's one of the things I like about the place. But I don't pay enough attention to actually get tickets to the shows I want to see. And then I have to be out of town for the others (Jason invited me to a concert this Saturday, which would be awesome, apart from me having to go home). Yes, I'm still bitter about missing the Orgy concert two years ago.
Sorry about the lack of posting lately...Imperian is absorbing whatever school leaves behind. Though I did get to hotseat some Civ4 with Luke tonight. That was fun. First time I've played and I'm currently winning. Starting position counts for a lot. And I've watched Luke play enough to have the basics down. And heck, it's almost 1000 AD and nobody's declared war on me yet.
As you might have guessed, I'm a bit upset about my couch delays, but otherwise I'm doing well in my blogging absence. I'm just hoping that Senior Thesis (a wireless microphone voice controlled robot for those keeping score) won't roll me under. As for the things that are not school or Imperian (I'm enjoying that game more than I probably should)...Well, that's hard for me to put into words. I'd say "better than expected," which is true, but without knowing my expectations, it could imply very different things than the reality. "According to plan" might also work, but it implies that I've got some kind of plan, instead of mostly wishful thinking and the grace of God. I'll just settle with "pleased." I'm very pleased, actually. Come what may, there's at least mutually assured interest in seeing what comes of it all. It's funny, I'm hoping for the best, without the slightest idea of which of a myriad of possible outcomes is "the best." Also, I actually am afraid I won't have anything to say. Isn't that ridiculous?
