I had an awesome weekend. I dropped the kids with Joyce, and Chris and I had Friday and Saturday all to ourselves. I picked him up from work around 4:30 and we did a little shopping. I got these, and a few other things, but blogger is being lame.
Then we went and checked in to our hotel downtown. We had a corner room on the 5th floor. It was amazing. 2 of the walls were all window. We could see everything. It reminded me of the movie "Lost in Translation". Very cool. Then we went to see Interpol. It was interesting, I'll give em that. It was held at a huge coliseum, but was sectioned off so only like a quarter of the space was full. They had the weirdest opening band ever. They were called The Liars. Avoid at all costs. Actually they were kind of entertaining in a "you are so weird" kind of way. Then Interpol played for 1 hour and 1 minute. Everyone felt very ripped off. after about 10 minutes of cheering for the encore the singer came out and said " one of our guys is messed up. We're so sorry , but this is goodnight. So sorry." and they left. The sad thing is they were very good. They were a Chris pick. I just went with. I'm not a huge fan of theirs, but they were good in a "we are very disinterested and too cool for you" kind of way. I know lame, but there was this very odd but passionate vibe.
After the concert we had some appetizers and dessert at some way up high with lots of windows restaurant. That was fun.
The next day we had breakfast at my favorite little french bistro downtown and hit a few(ok a lot) more stores. We then drove to Joyces and had an awesome time hanging out with the fam. We got home very late last night. Good thing that I got to sleep pretty much all day after church today. Tomorrow normal life starts again.
