Things & Stuff
2009-02-23 - 12:28 p.m.
I got out and about on Friday - running errands, meeting up with my brother, etc.
While I did that, I caught the end of the final show of Frosty, Heidi and Frank. Lots of tears, lots of toasting. Lots of goodbyes. They also put up a farewell video to their fans at their official site.
I also caught the final Leykis show. At the very end, he played this classic tune and said the lyrics were a perfect fit...and they are.
Then the crowd in the studio screamed "BLOW US UP, TOM!!" and there was the Leykis' SFX of a huge explosion.
Then...silence. A radio call-sign. A bunch of static with an obviously pre-recorded we're-gonna-be-so-cool radio announcer mixed in. After about five minutes, AMP RADIO was announced...and they started playing some hip-hop tune.
And the radio went off, and the Advil went in.
Saturday I worked and slept.
At that point, I saw that it was 1:45am. Even though there were still folks who were ready for more, I was wiped out. So I said my goodbyes and headed home.
On the way, I stopped off at Del Taco for a breakfast combo. When I bit into one of the hash browns, I found out that they were hollow - no potatoes, just the oily crust. Not just one - ALL FIVE. I'll be having words with a manager, and soon.
Then I laid down and boom - dream time.
Due to some bizarre scheduling conflicts, I'll be going in to work for a few hours on Thursday. I usually have Thursday off, but we'll be able to avoid some problems if I go in and work for a few hours in the afternoon.
And, it'll help with the nine-shift problem I talked about way back here.
I'm gonna grab some lunch and head off to work.
Be seeing you.
