Let summer begin!!!
Now that the wedding is over, I'm actually figuring out what to do with my summer (shock!). So I've:

June 30-July 4: Decided to go to The Gathering after all! I bought my registration a year ago, but it's been up in the air with the new job and the move. But it doesn't look like I'll be moving on July 4 weekend, and I have the 4-day weekend free, so I've bought my airplane ticket and booked a room! Tig, I've got a room at the Sheraton, with 2 beds, so you're welcome to join me on Sunday and Monday night, and the other nights too, if you wish.

August 1-3: I bought my 3-day pass to Lollapalooza! We'll see how much I actually end up seeing... if it's hot, I'll probably take a pass on most of it, but if it's nice - it should be fun!

I also have the following concerts set up from earlier:

June 23 - Gin Blossoms at the Lincoln Park Zoo

July 8 - 30STM at Summerfest in Milwaukee

July 25 - Guster and Ray Montagne at Northerly Island

August (25?) - TMBG at the Lincoln Park Zoo

Hey - and a note to anonypooh: Luke Perry has a new TV show! He's in an ensemble show about a group of people who win the lottery and how it changes their lives... often for the worse.

Maybe we can hang together at Summerfest. That way, if one of us dies, at least someone will know who it is...

duh, I meant Lollapalooza

btw, some of the Indiana girls might be interested in Milwaukee - they're trying to figure out cars now (to take the fewest possible). Might have to be coordinated with Grand Rapids the night before

Oh, I'm doing up some Shannon Mafia badges for this weekend - do you want one, and if so, what name on it?

I printed them up last night, but I haven't laminated them. So I'll try handwriting yours!

Well, the good news is that none of them are stadium, indoor stadium, or huge amphitheatre shows - I've pretty much sworn those off, after getting spoiled with the smaller venues in Indy. The bad news is that they're outdoors, and I probably won't get very close (for photos, if they allow cameras - *G*). But it will make the summer fun!

Do you have any special summer plans?

Yeah, the small venues are too much fun. Would be hard to go to a big stadium now.

Summer plans...work, mostly. Going to Comic-Con in San Diego next month. I think that's about it! But there's plenty to do right here in Seattle, as you know.

Ooooo... Comic-Con! That always sounds like so much fun.

And, yes, I was wondering if you'd be going back and exploring some of those places you visited with Rakshi even more! My mom recently was up there and enjoyed the Olympic Rain Forest, going to Kalaloch (sp?) and Cannon Beach in Oregon (the first for the rugged beach, the second for the tidal pools and sea stacks), and she raved about Mt. St. Helens and the visitors centers they have there.
