Hubby is going out of town this weekend. :( So we decided to have a fun day together (at least until I got called into work.) We went to Leu Gardens so hubby could play with his new camera, then to Kappy's for lunch. We were in the midst of vintage shopping when work called. Oh well. It was a good day anyway.

Here are some of the pics from Leu Gardens. Spring is definately here! (as was apparent by the turtles who kept trying to mate in front of us)

Saturday night we went to the ORLANDO ROCKS show at House of Blues. We got free tickets (one of the girls in our local is married to a band member). The band we went to see, Gorilla Fight, were good. Not my style of music (more the "screaming into the mic/violent mosh pit" scene). It was entertaining when, during their very first songs, there was a mosh-injury and it took five security guys to carry the injured party through the crowd. I was pleasantly suprised by one of the arlier bands. TRAVERSER, a local progressive rock band, were really good. Talented, and they sampled from HG Wells "War of the Worlds" broadcast. Hubby and I are definately going to try to see them again. There were two other bands we saw as well, but in the mood of "if you can't say anything nice..." I will not mention them further.

Not much else going on. Florida Film Festival starts this weekend. Hopefully we will make it out to a couple films. And we have concert tickets to get, George Clinton is only a couple weeks away.

For your viewing enjoyment, here are more pug pics.

Happy St Patrick's Day everyone!

Sunday night we had load-out for Legally Blonde. Only six trucks, so didn't take too long. We did miss the shuttle launch because of it, which is a shame since hubby wanted to see it. I'm hoping we have time at some point to drive over and see one from up close. Hubby being from New Hampshire, this is new to him.

Last night we had some friends from tour over for dinner. I figured after living on a bus, they could use a home cooked meal. I made pot roast with mashed potatoes and veggies. Even used the gravy boat for the first time ever. (It was a wedding present)

After our guests left, hubby and I watched Boondock Saints. It's the most Irish movie I have on DVD, so I figured good way to kick off St Patty's Day.

Last week, we went and saw Watchmen on opening night. I'm still not sure how I feel about the movie. I loved the book. I thought the movie had great FX, and I liked the soundtrack (I tend to like anything that uses Leonard Cohen for it's soundtrack). But I'm not sure about the changes. I get why they need to leave stuff out (don't want the movie to be 5 hours long), but some of the changes seemed superficial and unnecessary. All in all, I thought the movie was good.

Guess that's all for now. I've been taking advantage of being at home and using the library alot. The one here has a program where you can request books online and they mail them to your house, so it works great for narcoleptics like me. I'm currently reading the DUNE series. Having seen the movie (both the old one,and the more recent one) its hard to read the book, and not picture certain actors in each part. Now I remember why I always try to read the book first.

That's all for now. I'm gonna go try to wake up hubby so we can put a coat of paint on the walls in the bedroom.

Happy St Patty's Day everyone!

I know, I know, I am horrible at updating this thing.

Not much going on. Hubby got interviewed by the local Fox news. We've both been busy working. And fixing up the condo. Now that we're home we are painting and putting up shelves and just enjoying doing all the things we neer had time for on tour.

Working local gigs. Yesterday was Motley Crue. Good show. Too loud. We both did audio for the show, and I must say they had a ridiculous amount of subs. Especially since the arena was not sold out. But we did get to see part of the show (what we could see from backstage) and Tommy Lee was amazingly energetic considering his age.

Anyway, tonight we are going to go see Watchmen. Hubby has been busy reading the book, trying to finish it before the movie comes out.

The dogs are doing great, as always. We take them to the dog park once a week, which they love. Looking foward to the pug groups "Spring Fling" later this month.

Thats it for now. Off to make dinner. Teriyaki Pot roast.
