Birthday Plans

There will be no Saturday Rehearsal this week. For I am old, and I must mourn the loss of another year.

I get to hang out with most of the family today. Matt has to stay behind for lack of a babysitter, but he and Jonny might join us for dinner if it isn't raining.

Dad just handed me $50. My grandmother's probably going to give me another $50. Completely forgot about that little tradition. This is good. So, now I only feel half as bad about the $200 I shouldn't have spent last week. Yay!

I'm gonna go see the Lion King tonight. Maybe I'll bring back some ideas for the frog transformation in my play.

I'm thinking about bringing a pair of binoculars. Something with an adjustable focus would be nice. That'll substitute for eyeglasses. People will stare, of course. Our seats aren't nearly far enough back to justify binoculars. I figure if I'm wasn't planning to see anything, I might as well stay home and listen to the soundtrack.

Perhaps I'll bring a pair of binoculars to rehearsal on Monday.

Birthday (continued)

Lefty's Head is performing tonight. That almost never happens. Kitty Kat Stew is also performing tonight. That doesn't happen often enough either. I wish they were playing at the same place, and that I could be there to watch. But, no. I won't be at either show. That kinda sucks.

I bought myself a present to make up for it. Half.com had the Blue's Clues DVD pretty cheap, and a $5 coupon from DVD Price Search took it down to like $13.50 after tax and shipping. Most places have it closer to $20. I guess they figure parents are going to spend more on their kids without thinking twice about it. Children's videos in general seem to be more expensive than the rest. That bugs me. Anyway, this is my copy. For me. I'm not buying it at the whims of a four year old. I'm buying it 'cause it's my favorite movie right now. (defined by replay value, that statement isn't nearly as strange as it might seem) So, if there's a rule somewhere that says parents get screwed on every purchase, it doesn't apply to me. So there.
