my night.....

Just got back in from an interesting evening. Kinda made me think about things and what I've become. First, Jeanne and I went out to Gene and Jude's for some hot dogs. This is BY FAR the only place in the country that I will stand in line a half hour for a hot dog. Holy crud folks, these are some damn good sausages. I've frequented this place ever since I was in high school, and I will certainly miss it.

Afterwards we went to a place called Durty Nellies to check out a cover band called Hairbangers Ball. This is a band that has been around since the late 80's so I was expecting a great show. Mediocre at best. The sound guy was obviously sleeping because I couldn't hear the vocals at all...but maybe that was a good thing. They did mainly 80's hair metal songs and dressed the part as well, and the crowd was so into them. So I guess it didn't matter if I could hear them, or if they played their songs well, because all I could hear was the crowd singing along. The lack of good sound and the oodles of frat boys spilling beer on me made me not enjoy myself. Have I turned into such a snob that if the band doesn't sound good, I don't have a good time? I don't drink so I can't use the excuse of "the band sounds better if you are drunk". I just expect quality, and I didn't get it tonight. Oh well, it beats sitting at home feeling stressed about life...
