Why So Serious?

Yeah, I know, yesterday’s post was kinda heavy and kinda came outta nowhere.  Sorry about that.  But as I said in the comments, I was just damned tired of all the mindless fluff I’ve been posting and I wanted to write about something that meant something to my life.  Truth be told, I’ve been inspired by reading through Maria’s blog (thanks for the recommendation, Heather!  And Happity Birfday!!)  On a dreary, bleary day, thass’ whatcha got.  You bought the ticket; take the ride, right?  But seriously, thanks a bunch to you guys for commenting on it.  Group hug time.  B&G and I will try not to give anybody scalp-stubble burn.

Not today, though.  I’ve had enough of said dreary weather, all this grey and fog and cold fucking rain.  Months ago I bought myself a ticket to see Devin Townsend and Cynic play tonight, and I’ve been looking forward to this day ever since then.  Tonight, ol’ TB is gonna go have some fun.  Fuck, I might even buy a t-shirt at a concert, which I don’t think I’ve done since Van Halen’s “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge” tour.  Too bad I’m too broke to buy a shirt AND a drink.

Meh well.  A little caffeine and no alkie-hawl will make it easier for my old ass to stay on my feet, anyway.   Things I never thought I’d say when I was 15:  “I’m glad I remembered my earplugs.”  “I wanna mosh tonight, but my back’s acting up.  I’ll probably skip it.”

Next week:  More meaningful (but maybe not sad-sap) posts, if I can pull ’em off.  And TB’s Return to the Gym!  Also, TB’s Annual “I’m sore from my workout, waaaah” Whining Post!  And hopefully not TB’s “WHAT?  WHAT DID YOU SAY?” I’m Even Deafer Post!

Y’all have a good weekend.

  1. If I want to get serious, I jst wear pants I don’t fit in and in 15 minutes, I get pretty serious.

    I go sans pants when I want to lighten the mood.

    So how’s it work?

  2. Thanks for the wishes, TB! And I’m glad you found Maria’s blog, I really do love to read what she has to say.

    “I wanna mosh tonight, but my back’s acting up. I’ll probably skip it.” That made me giggle.

    It was true. I managed not to get my geriatric ass jostled too much. (But it’s a good thing I repositioned myself before the headliners took the stage. I’ll explain more in the big post!)
