10:06 am - Politics....NOT
So as you may or may not know I am married to a Politics Junkie. So for him I am posting this that I received from a co-worker. I am NOT stating a side it is just funny. I think that someone should do this for all if not already done.

06:54 am - I'll get my gix yet
So as some of you may know I was to take my son to his first concert on Sat. However the universe decided that this was not the best laid plan. The show was the Q101 block party. Headlining was Avenged Sevenfold. A few other bands that I have heard of and didn't mind their music. The world was informed on Thursday of last week that A7X would NOT be performing due to the lead singer - M.Shadows- having vocal fatigue (broken voice for X) Ok, major disappointment as I had already bought an A7X shirt for X. Now he was going to look silly wearing it but oh well.
Now before you long time concert aficionados go off and say that you don't wear the t-shirt of the band you are going to see - Well I say X is six and it was ok.
On the way to the concert we hit IKE remnants and that had been on going from the last few days. I get a call from Randy half way to the venue he tells me to turn on the radio and listen to Q101 that they were going to have a major announcement about the show. The major announcement was the show was cancelled due to the fact that the main stage was flooded and they didn't want any one to get electrocuted. Nice of them, that.
so this leaves me with a sadness that I truly could not express. One I was totally disappointed for my self as I had been talking this up for a while. and not only did I have to bear the brunt of my own disappointment I had to do for X as well. When I told him that the concert was cancelled and we were going home he looked at him like I just kicked his puppy. Xaviar expressed his displeasure with the Goddess and for all the rain but recovered by rolling dice for Randy and killing nine bad guys, that were trying to beat up Daddy.
Well, this morning I was giving a lovely gift by my co-worker telling me he got an email stating the A7X will be coming back in Nov. I immediately went to their site and low and behold they are doing a date in Milwaukee's Eagles Ballroom. The tix go on sale on Sat. Xaviar and I are so going. I will get box seats so at least my old weary bones can rest and keep X away form the pit. I will only have to worry about the balcony diving for him.
I am very excited. Can you tell?

10:58 am - Good News and Bad News
So here is the good News
I get to keep my job and i get to move closer to home so instead of driving 70 miles to and from work I will only be driving 55 miles. Thus saving money and stress. Yeah for me!!!! :)
So here is the bad news:
I was taking Xaviar to his very first concert this Saturday. Who is playing you ask ( and even if you didn't) it is the Q101 Block Party. For Saturday the headlining band was to be Avenged Sevenfold. NOTE I did say WAS. The band has cancelled all the rest of their dates for September resuming in October in Japan. The reason is because the lead singer who actually screams more than I do is suffering from Vocal Fatigue. They had already cancelled several dates in the UK and Canada.
Now I completely understand but i am very disappointed by this. One I really like the music and want to see them perform, Two in my old lady lust stage the band is choked full of good looking boys and I wanted them to perform. Three as I said this was to be X's first show. We had this whole thing planned for giving him a Mohawk and covering him in tatoos (Temp of course) . I have even caught him signing Almost Easy when we listened to it in the cars (yes, he is so my son).
I supposed this is an ok trade off from the Goddess. So I miss A7X this time but I still have a job and money coming in. It still makes me sad. *weep*

07:23 am - And you hate your job.....
We are currently going thru a merger/integration with one of our subsidiaries. I as a contractor not an actual employee will most likely be losing my job some September. Today I received a meeting request to discuss what I do and how I do it as far as my particular job is concerned. so in essence they want me to help train my possible replacement. ARE THEY OUT OF THEIR EVER LIVIN' MINDS. you want me to tell you how to replace me. (Bleep..................................
I just wonder how many security guards they are going to call to escort me from the building.

11:30 am - Gay Rights
Not because I have any illusions that this might actually have some sort of effect but more like because I'll try almost anything in hopes that it will:
Ok, we acknowledge this is a chain letter. We don't care.

Lots of folks would like to know who really believes in gay rights on LJ. There is no bribe of a miracle or anything like that. If you truly believe in gay rights, then repost this and title the post as "Gay Rights."
If you don't believe in gay rights, (or don't believe in them enough to take five minutes to support them) then just ignore this.
07:38 am - Happy Beltane
May your fields (in what ever shape or form) be fertile.
