Sun and Sand Bound

Well, I'm off for a beach vacation soon, so I thought I'd let you know why I won't be posting for a little while. This time it's a legitimate excuse, and not just laziness.

I also thought I'd tell you about some of the things I mentioned in my last post:

- The Police/ Elvis Costello concert was a-MAZE-ing! Sure, there are songs I would have liked to hear from both acts that they didn't play, and Elvis's set was only 45 minutes, but what an opportunity! And neither act disappointed. They played tight, sounded great. The Police are more of a jam band live than I would have thought. And Elvis can wail on lead guitar. Who knew? Very awesome concert.

- Ran 9 miles at an 8:50 per mile pace, which is better than what I ran 8.5 at last week. That's good.

- Watched some of the last Avatar eps (and they're great) but I promised my son I'd wait for him to catch up on the ones I watched before we watch the last ones together. Now we're leaving on vacation and won't get to see them until we come back. Damn!

- My car, in fact, got below 20 mpg on its third and fourth tanks. The fourth tank was the lowest yet. Motherfucker!

Now some stuff I didn't mention in the last post:

- Saw The Dark Knight and it fucking ruled! Best superhero movie I've ever seen. One of the best movies I've seen in a while. Heath Ledger will scare the shit out of you and make you laugh at the same time.

- Saw Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi in concert last night. It was good, not really my favorite kind of music, but Derek is something else on guitar. Incredible slide player.

Hasta la bosta, everyone!
