Listed below are some of my random thoughts on City Stages.
RantsI like to complain, err, voice my strong opinion about certain things. Certain things could be politics, customer service, Blockbuster, and Wal-Mart.
Today was our last day at City Stages. This morning it was really hard to get up. Sarah and I went to sleep around 2am, so we had a good night sleep. I was just really sore and probably needed to sleep two days instead of just six or seven hours.
The first band we saw today was called Beyond Me.
Sarah and I arrived at City Stages at around 12:30pm for our second day of the music festival. The security at the gate wouldn’t allow our cameras or cell phones in, so we had to walk back to our car to put the items away. We found out later that security gave up on trying to stop cameras from getting in.
Sarah and I left Huntsville at around 1:00pm to go to Birmingham to attend City Stages. I thought I booked a hotel in downtown Birmingham, which would have enabled us to just walk to City Stages. Unfortunately, Google Maps deceived me. Picture 1 shows what my original google maps search turned up. The Comfort Inn was supposed to be in downtown.

I’m already sick of my web design. I’ve read in many places that the web designers/developers get sick of the web design long before the users of that website. So I beg the question: who are the users of my website? I know of five people that regularly frequent my website. Other than that, it’s random people from Finland, the Philippines, Germany, some school in Wisconsin or Maine… people that just read and leave (or just leave).
When was the last time you felt like going on a murderous rampage? Hopefully never, but I imagine that there are days when you just want to choke the life out of somebody. The thing that keep us from going on our ‘murderous rampage’ and other hateful acts is our sense or morality, or our sense of what’s right and wrong.
Without going into too many specifics, I am mentoring a new hire at work. Some people use the term mentor loosely and think that it means ‘to look after.’ I tend to see mentoring as the growing and nurturing of an individual’s goals, skills, and interests.
I remember starting my job at Walgreens in Phoenix, Arizona. The time frame was the summer of 2000.
On May 6th (about two and a half weeks ago) Sarah and I bought a two-drawer filing cabinet for our house. I was looking for a good filing cabinet to organize all of our bills and paperwork. We went to Office Depot and found what seemed like a good piece of furniture. The sales associate who helped us out was very helpful; He even took the piece out to our vehicle.
As hard as it is to pencil someone in for an appointment taking up our time, it is even harder to pencil someone in who is dead or dying. Appointments need to be canceled, plane tickets need to be purchased (at exorbitant prices), and funeral arrangements need to be made. None of these are cheap, nor easy to do. The fact is, death is an inconvenience.
Airline ticket prices, at least for the time being, are somewhat absurd right now. The high prices may be contributed to increasing gas prices, and perhaps increasing demand, but the overall height of airline ticket prices doesn’t seem fully justified.
Sarah and I was looking for a ticket a few days back for her trip to Texarkana, TX. The price was a little less than four-hundred-dollars round trip.
