My friend Brandy posted and shared a memory with me today. It was a post of a picture of the song Ripcord by the band, Tangier. They weren’t a huge band, but there was a time, where my friend and I made Tangier history. We, then known as the Yooper Whoredogs, made them their very first banner, in Marquette, MI.
I’m hoping to get to visit with my friend the next time I get back to Michigan, when ever that may be. I’ve already made up my mind, before I’m 55, I hope to be back there.
It’s hard to believe that the age, really isn’t all that far away. I’m going to be 50 in three years. THREE YEARS! It sometimes hit me a little hard, because I don’t feel that old. But I know I am, and wish I could remember more of the past. But then I realize, I didn’t do all that much to remember.
I’m changing that though, I’m making some plans. I’ve got a weekend getaway planned for Las Vegas in October, over my birthday. I have plans to audition for Who Wants to be a Millionaire. I’m hoping I can win a place in the heart of America. 🙂 Seriously, why not. If I don’t get on, at least I can say I auditioned for a game show. Why the hell not.
That same weekend, I intend to go to the Mob Museum, Criss Angel, and the Luxor buffet, and the Mandolin Bay aquarium. I don’t need to gamble, and I really don’t want to. I want to see things.
I’m playing Pop Slots to get my loyalty points. I really just don’t enjoy MyVegas slots anymore. The one I always play, is return to Oz. I don’t know why, because it’s not exciting. Probably because it’s on the first screen. 🙂
I’ve got a friend coming into work for an interview tomorrow. I think she’ll do great, and will work hard. I know she’s got it in her. Not to mention, if things work out, I’ll get that referral! 🙂
Have a swell evening.
