Pre-emptive excuses for not blogging

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at October 16, 2006 11:36 PM

or, Sometimes I Actually Have A Life.

Here's how I'm spending my non-lab time this week:

Monday: Ladytron with CSS @ The Fillmore
Tuesday: The Hold Steady with Sean Na Na @ Great American Music Hall
Wednesday: Salsa dancing @ Shattuck Down Low
Thursday: Beat Valkyrie Profile 2
Friday: Drive to Los Angeles

Ok, maybe I can fit in some blogging time on Thursday... plus this should give me something to write about. Tomorrow I'll post an open thread with a review of the Ladytron show and their setlist.

You could always liveblog some of this stuff.

And having a life is no excuse for not blogging. :)

Oh! Tenuous celebrity anecdote moment! The lass from Ladytron apparently used to be in my old department, namely biochemistry, at Oxford. I'm fairly sure that's true; I did possibly just make it up.

How about you skip the Ladytron review, and instead get a good night's sleep. That way you won't feel bad about staying up late to do a review of the Hold Steady show instead. Eh?

Mason: I have enough trouble talking while dancing, so I assume blogging while dancing would be even more difficult.

Narrenschiff: Wikipedia backs you up, Mira Aroyo apparently has a doctorate in molecular genetics. Hmm, I didn't think of "rock star" as a career path for science PhDs...

Lemming: I was thinking of saving the Hold Steady review for next week's open thread, but I'm sensing that would be an unpopular choice. :)

Perhaps as a variation on, "rock out with your cock out", you could, "r0x0r-it out with your doctorate out"?

Careful, AG -- pander to your readers and you start the long slide down the twin slippery slopes of success and depravity. Woo!

AG: Clearly your future lies in rock & roll...

Mason: It seems to be my destiny to go from the audience to the stage. At least that's what tonight's events indicate. (A post on this is forthcoming.)

Successful anticipation! :)

By the way, I am now available during the day on Saturday (after noon), as I no longer am needed to chair or judge my SURF session. Thus, I'll be departing after my students are done (well, maybe technically following the free lunch right after that---though I am willing to skip the lunch).
