Late night out....

Late for us, anyhow. dick and I just returned from seeing our friend and neighbor, Dietrich, perform at the bar "Parkside" (on 17th and Wisconsin). He was fantastic! The program tonight (a group of performers) was called F*cked Up music for F*cked Up People. We saw about 4 performers, who were all quite good and talented. Dietrich was great! He did everything from an old Ramones tune, to a special blend of Brittany Spears and Abba. (My favorite Abba song even "Lay All Your Love on Me") You know the one:

I wasn't jealous before we met,
Now every woman I see is a potential threat,
And I'm possessive, it isn't nice,
You've heard me saying that smoking was my only vice,
But now it isn't true,
Now everything is new,
And all I've learned has overturned,
I beg of you,
Don't go wasting your emotion,
Lay all your love on me.

:). That brings back some old memories to me. Does anyone else out there remember The Freelancers' Color Guard, 1983? I'm reallly dating myself, but I loved that show! Plus, Erasure did a cover of that song several years back. Wow. My old gay-bar hopping days are coming back to haunt me.

Usually, we don't have the energy to go out this late (not that 11:30 is terribly late, I admit) on a weeknight, but lucky for us, Dick is on vacation for the next couple of weeks. We're going to San Francisco for our vacation! There's actually a lot we want to do and see here: the Conservatory just reopened in GG Park, the Chagall Exhibit at SF MOMA, etc.,

Oh, on a side note: we were playing "Ghost Recon: Island Thunder" or "GRIT" on Xbox Live tonight. Very fun - especially since we were able to download a New Map! Very cool.

Alright. Time for bed now. Goodnight.
