Cyndi Lauper was excellent… when I have more time, I’ll unload the camera’s better piccies to here. Karen and Doug both made it, too. Apparently Cathi and Dave were there, but couldn’t get to my front-row location by the time they got there. It was an acoustic set, and she rocks with the dulcimer and recorder too! Very spiffy.
Respectable turnout. Maybe 200 people. If I had to guess. I’d say that it was and even 50/50 male/female audience… though I suspect that there was a disproportionately high percentage of homosexuals to heteros. Instead of the usual 1 in 10… I’d put the flamboyantly gay population at maybe 3 or 4 in ten, primarily male. Any straight girls looking for a straight guy would have to activate major hunting skills. The one with best odds would be a bisexual male.
I got a signed CD… She seems quite nice in person, and has only a hint of that wacky new-yorky accent that she talked with during the 80’s… Her son was there, too, and is a cool kid. I may be appearing on deco drive Monday night on wsvn at 7pm. we’ll see what happens.
After the concert, I went with Karen and Doug to the mall next door to shoot the breeze and grab a bite to eat (Nathan’s french fries, and lemonade… good tasting), and then quick little stops at Kay-bee toys, the discovery store, and the Barnes and noble… just lookie-looing, no purchases for me today, aside from the new Lauper music.
Last night, I finished my new computer desk…it’s nice, but the tower doesn’t fit in the elevated bay with the large drawer on top…. so I removed the drawer and runners to safe for when a smaller case is used, next go-round. The Desk is nice, though… a healthy-sized keyboard sliding-shelf now gives me a lot more desktop real estate to work with (or for Newt to rest on, as he’s doing now.)
The things you find on the Internet, looking for zombies…Hot Wax Zombies On Wheels
Synopsis: A sleepy fishing village is terrorized by a band of hairless zombies on motorcycles.

Tonight, at about 8, I’m going to visit with Dave, while his wife and her buddies go out for ladies’ night. I don’t expect that evening to last too long, though…. maybe two hours or so.
I’m looking most forward to spending some time relaxing on my own and with my sweetheart… we’ve both been busy-bunnies!
