This situation with the Sept 1 reading of Life Begins At 8:40 is turning into open warfare and I fear and hope it gets no uglier than it currently is. At the present, I have no urge to make the trip to DC!

Laura, that's hilarious, because Alan is Lakewood's usual MD.  He has a much higher tolerance for doing shows than I do.  :)  How do you know him?

I typically can't stand to do more than one a year, and after this one I think I'm good for a decade.  :)

I made sure the SAP channel was turned off which I think was the problem ...

And I frankly can't imagine Alan with long hair--he seems like such a "button down" person.

It's not quite officially official yet, but I can now announce that I've been hired to review classical music/opera (both BD and audio BD) for Blu-ray.com.  I'm very excited by this opportunity, though truth be told, will miss the variety I experienced at both DVDTalk and Matt's home, Home Theater Forum.  I've already submitted my resignation to HTF, DVDTalk is wanting me to stay on in the background to handle classic film and some t.v. series, but I need to clear that with Blu-ray.  The best part in terms of new toys is, because I'm an independent subcontractor for Blu-ray, I can write off a brand spanking new home theater system, so I'm excited to be able to upgrade to some great new components for my review room.  Right now I think I will be getting a Samsung 42" LCD, an Onkyo 7.1 surround system and the new slimline PS3 for a player.

It was a long time ago.

I have seen Alan a couple of times in person, but I have not met Darren in person yet.

How much more school do you have, Megan?

I finish my Bachelor's in May, but I start an accelerated Master's of Social Work program in June. It's only a 36 credit MSW program instead of 60, so I will have my Master's in May 2011. The next two years will be fueled by Starbuck's and vitamins :)

You were right! It took Tommy a while to come along but since he did, life has been so good!

Back from the long jog.  Handy Man is assembling the metal shelves in the garage and this is the smartest decision I've made in ages!  We've got three going up now, then we'll do two smaller ones against the back wall, and then two more on the opposite side wall.  Not only will all the Kritzerland product and shipping supplies fit perfectly with room to spare, but also I'll finally be able to have a few shelves of CDs, books, and DVDs out there, instead of being so overcrowded in the house.  That will be so wonderful.

I got the results of the MRI. The good news was that it was not a herniated disc in my neck. The bad news is that I have a combination of the onset of arthritis and a deterioration of the spongy material between the discs in my spine. Now, I understand why the doctor has signed me up for rehab which begins on Monday morning.

And no new drugs for the present. He's convinced the pain will subside with time and exercise, so I have to use over-the-counter pain medication plus the rest of the Vicodin and Ibuprofin and muscle relaxers he prescribed during my previous two visits.

All very disappointing. On the other hand, it's not life threatening; it's just that my quality of life for the moment is not going to be very pleasant.

Oh. My. GOD.

I never thought that this sort of thing could happen to me. My friends and I were coming back to y best friends house to hang out for a bit, since a couple of people were feeling sick from rides and whatnot. My best friends boyfriend, Matt had an I pod on him, so he put it on speaker or somthing so we could all rock out to the music together, and we got a call from a friend who was still in the fair, and all she did was yell into the phone for a couple of minutes about us leaving her behind, and then she hung up on me. (Incidentally, the reason we left was because she said her boyfriend and her would catch up, so we thought they where ditching us to go make out. AGAIN.)
So we were waiting on the corner for them to catch up (which they never did), when these two huge black guys come out of no-where and start asking Matt how much he wanted for his ipod. When he said it wasn't for sale, one of them took it and started walking away from us. Matt grabbed his shirt, and the guy punched him in the FACE, which made Matt stumble backwards and rip the guy's shirt. Then they walked away from us and when they got half-way down the block, they started running. After that, we went back to the house, and called the police after telling our friends mom. The police showed up, and dragged Matt away to identify a suspect, and less then half an hour later, I was being dragged away to do the same thing. The good News: They caught the guy who took his i-pod, and have him in custudy, I believe. The bad news: Even though Matt and I were able to identify the guy so they wouldn't need the rest of our friends to identify him as well, they made the two of us stay in a police department, in seperate rooms, and tell the whole story again to different detectives. I haven't seen him since around 11 ish last night, when my police car drove past his on the way to the station. I hope he's ok. Now some guy's gonna call me in a week or two, who'll want the story again, and tell me if I have to go to court as a witness, or if the kid is just going to jail now without me and Matt having to go to court. This place is turning into some new kind of Brooklyn at night. I thought people oved out here to get away from the cities. Guess I was wrong.

~~~Vibes for DR Vixter!!~~~
