That high-pitched shriek you heard a couple of hours ago? That was me, realizing that Patrick Stump is going to be in Texas on his tour, 26-28 August. SMALL VENUE AWESOMENESS. :D :D :D

In other news:

1. Sasha is back in my possession. I love my car. I live in the 'burbs, and I drive an unfortunate amount, and I MISSED MY iPod DOCK AND MY DECENT GAS MILEAGE AND MY EZPASS. Now I have them back, and Sasha is pretty and shiny again. My commute time is halved. I am marginally less cranky at the end of my work day now. Marginally.

2. Finished Tropic of Chaos. It's an interesting read, examining what Parenti calls the "catastrophic convergence" of climate change and political/economic policy of the Global North as applied to the Global South. [For GK fans, you'll be amused to hear that when citing The Age of Consequences: The Foreign Policy National Security Implications of Global Climate Change, a product of CNAS & CSIS, Parenti says that it was produced by "the most scientifically literate of the lot" of DC think-tanks.]

3. Is anyone else planning on going to the Empires show in Austin on the 18th?

DO YOU THINK I WOULD POSSIBLY BE NOT GOING TO SEE EMPIRES?

NO. FUCK NO. I AM SEEING FUCKING EMPIRES. FOR THE ELEVENTH GODDAMN TIME.

OBVIOUSLY. I am hoping not to make the Houston-Austin-Houston drive by myself, though. :/ Especially if I'm going to be making it again the following week for Ludo. Ugh, gas is expensive.

C'mon, Houston girls. Tom Conrad!

Also Sunny and I are coming to Houston for Ludo/Stamps too.

Thanks for explaining that shriek. I thought the cat had just noticed the flea treatment on the bench.

ENJOY THE STUMP!

I MOST CERTAINLY WILL!

*sigh*

Davis Cup tennis is happening in Austin, a mere 2.5 hour drive away! You have no idea how tempted I was by the release of additional tickets. Daveeeed! Deliciano! But no Rafa :(

Ahahahaha! I just had two alerts - one was your reply and one was my Feliciano Lopez photo alert! So, yeah, I'm all there! (you don't mind that I checked that Feli one first, right?)

I plan on having the livescore window open while I do paperwork at my desk, just so I can follow the stats. Whyyy isn't there a general ATP/ITF radio app like the ones for Wimbledon and Roland Garros?

I am weak. I succumbed to the Davis Cup lure and drove to Austin on Sunday. MOST RIDICULOUS BOYS! FeVer was the best WAG! Daveeeed! I wish they'd played the fifth match, though.
