Violent Femmes

Months ago, I got a ticket to see the Violent Femmes on a Thursday night.  I took the day off work the next day, anticipating being out late.  Long story short, that didn’t quite work out.  I still had a great time, but just didn’t stay out as late. The Mermen opened for them.  I hadn’t heard of them before, but my friend had.   I was not disappointed.  Here are some clips from the show.

Sleep intermission

My body does not appreciate sleeping through the night. Usually it’s my bladder that wakes me up.

I have a friend who is a few hours ahead of who sometimes chats with me while I can’t get back to sleep. The other night, while I was awake, he asked me if I was chatting during intermission. I think I like that better than insomnia. Sleep intermission is what I’ll be calling it from now on.

Disability Pride

I was at the main library in San Francisco, after not being there for a few weeks. I found that they’d changed the displays and exhibits. The exhibit on artists, etc with disabilities was nice.

As I was walking through the exhibit, I found an artist I knew by reputation. I’ve read his book and I hope to read his upcoming novel. He had no idea that his likeness was in the exhibit. I hope he can get to the library to see it.
