Even before that other stuff, we had the Dills and their niece Ashton over for dinner. We had I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell (totally not appropriate for children or teenagers, by the way) so we ended up watching that. I hope that Ashton’s mom doesn’t find out because she will probably murder us or at least forbid Ashton from being around us ever again.
P.S. I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell wasn’t as good as the blog or book, which explains why it was straight to DVD. I can’t believe they got the guy from Bring It On to play in their movie. LOL. If you feel the urge to watch IHTSBH coming on, just rent The Hangover instead. =P
Before we went to Kelly’s Irish Pub on Thursday to watch Virginia Williams, we stopped by Tita Sol’s house to visit her and Molly. It had been several weeks since we’d seen them both. I had almost forgotten how cute and cuddly Molly is… She is soo adorable. Seeing her last week made me miss her all over again.
Thank you, Tita Sol, for letting us visit Molly. 🙂

We finally made it out to watch Virginia Williams perform. It’s been almost a year since we last saw her. She used to be a regular at Highlands. Ah, those were the days.
Anyway, I love, love, love Virginia! She is so awesome!
You want to know what else happened on Friday? I finally got to see Rush perform live for the very first time. It was awesome! They played all my favorite songs AND we got to watch Neil Peart perform a 15-minute drum solo on a rotating drum platform. Phenomenal.
I wish that our new phones weren’t at home charging so that I could have taken better pictures at the concert with its 5MP camera. We had to take this one with Brian’s crummy work phone. Photo quality is crap. Even my HTC Touch Pro 2 probably would’ve been better to have with us. Oh, well.
P.S. My favorite songs came on at 8:35 PM, 8:45 PM, 9:15 PM, 9:40 PM, 10:05 PM… Actually, everything that happened after 10:05 PM was fantastic. That’s when they really got going. The video backdrop, lighting and visuals were fantastic all night, but in the last hour they had pyros and fireworks. It was crazy! Neil Peart’s drum solo was Brian’s favorite part. I liked it because it led into Alex Lifeson’s guitar solo, which led into “Closer to the Heart,” one of my all-time favorite Rush songs at about 10:20 PM. They closed with “Working Man,” another Rush classic. What a great show!
I won’t blog about the whole cellphone saga because it’s a long story and Brian told me that he would blog about it. After all, he is the one who worked super hard to get us our new Samsung Galaxy S/Vibrant phones. T-Mobile wouldn’t give them to us for less than $150 each at first. Even after multiple phone calls and multiple cancellation threats, they wouldn’t do it. We almost switched to Verizon to get HTC Incredibles. Luckily, they ran a special where everyone could get it for $99 so we were able to get in on that deal.
I’m glad we stayed with T-Mobile because our rate plan is unbeatable. We got to keep our grandfathered calling and messaging plans, and simply added unlimited data for $20 per month on each line. Also, I really, really like the Vibrant because I can control our TV with it. I can show pictures and videos stored in my phone on the TV wirelessly through the AllShare app. It is soo neat!
Check out what the phone can do below…
