Happy Nevada Day

Happy Nevada Day, y'all. Today commemmorates the day Nevada was admitted into the union, and it's a state holiday. Nevada day is actually October 31 - but they changed how it is recognized, to attract more celebration around the event. So we celebrate the last Friday of October. That's nice, because there's always a three-day weekend. It's not nice, because we all have to work on Halloween unless it falls on Friday.

This year, I'm working! Well, okay, not really - I have training today. Overtime, you say? Not a problem. :)

On a totally unrelated matter - I've rediscovered The Who. Sirius satellite radio has The Who Channel - and I caught it the other day; it's now programmed in my channel favorites. When I was in high school a girlfriend and I got caught up in the movie Quadrophenia and as many of you remember, Mod made a brief return in the 80's (whoa Sting looked good back then). Since I grew out of that I hadn't listened to The Who much, and I forgot how much I enjoyed them. Which reminds me, I think I'm going to have to pick up a DVD of that movie. It's probably been 20 years since I saw it. Now I feel old.

Happy Nevada day to all who are from there!
Hope you enjoyed the training/overtime (yeah,baby).

The Who is awesome! They're going to be in concert by me on Dec. 5. I hear this tour's pretty sweet. I keep dropping hints about what a cool birthday/Christmas prezzie that would be, but I don't think anybody's paying attention. lol I gotta admit though, I've never seen that movie. Oh and if ya didn't know it yet, they've got a new cd coming out (may already be out now, have to check the release date).

Have a rockin weekend!

I have a friend who just saw The Who and another who has front row seats in Dec. I saw them back in the '70s. Now tell me who feels OLD!!!

Happy Nevada day :)

Happy Nevada Day!!

Lora, I think you can catch Studio 60 on line at NBC.com...it was a really good episode again. Let me know if you can't watch it and I'll see if I still have the tape (I'm not sure if I taped over it or not.)

Uhm, I hate to break it to you but did you see what blogger friend Jen put on her page?

Happy (late) Nevada day to you, Lora.

I love The Who ... they have some amazing songs.

Have a wonderful week.

Take care, Meow

Actually, a good Who 'best of' is sorely lacking from my collection even though I have a few of their latter hits. Might have to go shopping.
