Go West
We got back from Denver late last night at around midnight. Of course it wasn't supposed to work out that way, but that's what you get when you try to connect through Chicago on a hot humid day. There is nothing more frustrating in the whole world than hearing the sound of the engines being turned off on the tarmac, and waiting.

But Denver was nice. It's different out there. People are taller and thinner than the folks around here, and stoned too--all of them. It must be a healthier lifestyle. I think I could live there.

On Saturday we went out to Red Rocks (you know the place in that U2 video) and saw Big Head Todd and the Monsters. I saw Big Head Todd 12 years ago in DC and was kind of interesting to think about how things have changed. Since then I've been through a handful of different jobs and lived in 5 different cities, while Big Head Todd still has the same job, is playing the same tunes and looks pretty much the same. The show was fun, but Big Head Todd really only has 3 songs which he plays at 3 different tempos, so after about an hour and half he gets pretty redundant. Still, he's pretty good at what he does.

Oh well, back to work. I need to catch up on some blog reading.
