Every two months or so, there is a weekend when there is actually a few things to do in Tucson or a number of plans. Most days, we stay at home knitting and watching Netflix with our parents. Sad, I know. =) Most of our friends do not live here or have moved away. You know who you are. Until that one weekend comes along. Let me share what I learned from this weekend.
1. People of the elderly variety should not go to indie concerts. We went with some friends to see The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger at Club Congress. There were surprisingly quite a number of our gray headed friends. They probably came out just because it's John Lennon's son and they wanted to hear him play a few covers. It was requested, but appropriately denied. As we were waiting for the opening act to begin, a lady came up to Syd like they were old friends and said, "Now that we are in here, what do we do now?" As another lady was exclaiming, "It's standing room only!" Not to mention, the elderly couple enjoying themselves a little bit too much with some major public displays of affection. Awkward! Concerts. Another great people watching opportunity. So entertaining.
Listen to this. Now.
2. I learned a new word. I signed up for dictionary.com's word a day emails. As an interpreter and as a person, it's always important to continue to increase your vocabulary. The only problem is that dictionary.com sends out the most random words that you will never ever use. Let today's word be an example for you.
