Happy Flag Day!

Yes, June 14th, on top of being my birthday, has been designated Flag Day on the American calendar. It's more of a trivia question than a holiday, but it's nice to have something I can wish back on people when they wish me a Happy Birthday.

I took the day off from work, as I am inclined to do when I am able. Stayed up late the night before, slept rather late, moofed around for a bit and finally headed down to Little Five Points to collect on an emailed coupon for a free meal on my birthday from The Vortex. It ended up taking me something like an HOUR to get down there, so by the time I was finished with lunch, all I really wanted to do was take a nap. So I went to Mom and Dad's house and did so.

Mom and Dad took me to IKEA and bought me a couple of CD towers and a table and chairs for my condo. Then they took me out to dinner to a really nice restaurant called Dolce, but I was still too full of meat and tater tots to have much of an appetite, so I just had a salad and nibbled a bit at Mom and Dad's entrees.

I'm home now and I'll be winding down and going to bed because I decided to go to work Friday instead of making it a long weekend. I'll be dragging out my birthday festivities for the weekend, though. Should be fun.

Today I took pleasure in a bacon cheeseburger from The Vortex.

Today I learned that IKEA isn't nearly as hectic and crowded on a weeknight as it is on a Saturday.

EDIT: Today I also learned: DAVID SYLVIAN IS TOURING!!!!! Starting in Europe in September, but it's being described as a world tour, so surely there will be North American dates at some point. AHHHHHHHHH! Please, please, let him play somewhere I can get to! I will walk if I have to, just get him on my freaking continent!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Re: happy bday officially!
In America he's pretty much an unknown quantity. It's why he lived in, like, Minnesota or something for so many years--because hardly anybody there knew or cared who he was.

I have come close to seeing this man twice, and both times I was thwarted by fate.

The first time, I was plotting to travel to Washington DC to see him play. Then I had to go and bail my ex-boyfriend out of jail and there went my travel fund. I got the money back, but by then it was too late.

The second time, he actually scheduled a show in Atlanta. I nearly fainted dead from the shock. Then the show was cancelled due to insufficient ticket sales. Sigh.

If he makes it to my end of the globe, I am going. I don't care where he's playing, if I can book a plane ticket and find crashspace, I am THERE.

Hell, I'm this close to pricing out airfare to London in September . . .
