Aww, thanks! It was a low key birthday. I think by now we should just hit the 5s and 10s! Dan and Owen were at D*C, so the other kids and I went to McDonalds and had ice cream. Dan and I went to the Maroon5/Train concert as part of my present, and we'll be going to the journey concert as well. Not a bad set of presents!

Oh, that's cool! What did they see at D*C, and what did Owen enjoy most?

I hope you had a lovely time at Train ... and, heh, you'll be taking the "midnight train" with Journey! Definitely a nice set of presents!

I don't recall what they did, but Owen dressed as Karkat and his friends were other trolls from the mspaint adventure web comic. I thought it was obscure but he said there were 4 other Karkats and they saw about a dozen other trolls. Dan chaperoned him and 3 friends so he just let them lead the way. I know they went to some weapons talks and a my little pony thing (one of Owens friends is into MLP!) They stayed overnight Saturday in a nearby hotel and they all had a blast. Dan even prepaid for next years tickets!

I enjoyed the train concert, except I got the tickets primarily to see Matt Nathanson and we hit traffic and missed his whole opening set!

How fun! He could recycle that as a Halloween costume, too.

Owen's friend is a Bronie, huh?

I'm very sorry to hear you missed Nathanson's opening set! I know that's frustrating. I only really know "Come On Get Higher" by him, I think.

It was his costume last year! He's a little obsessed.

Yeah, the pony thing...I try not to judge, I used to think South park and Dexters lab were juvenile, then I watched them and laughed my butt off. I'm told the new writers for MLP are from Dexters lab and the powerpuff girls, which I could see being pretty funny! I guess I'll wait and try to watch some before I mock him too harshly!

Matt Nathanson has a new album out so "Faster" is all over the radio. We've seen him in concert in some smaller venues and he is hysterical, really works the crowd. In all of my concert going, I've found I really appreciate someone who can come out and talk and joke and be engaging over someone who just wants to sing (Iron and Wine might as well have been Disney Animatrons when they played the Variety!) So, I'm betting for this big of a concert, he probably wasn't doing his usual chatty routine, so maybe we didn't miss the best part!

Oh, I don't judge! I was just showing off that my fortysomething year old self knew the right terminology. ;)

Both South Park and Dexter's Laboratory are funny. :) "Dee Dee, get out of my laboratory!" I haven't watched either in a long time, but I remember enjoying them here and there in their heyday.

Ah, so "Faster" is by him! I'd heard it on the radio, but the DJ couldn't be bothered to provide attribution. :)
