First of all, a very belated thank you to Megs and Mike for letting me intrude on their lives for three days. I had a wonderful time and am looking forward to coming back sometime in the future, perhaps to go to a concert if I'm lucky. ;D I'm also already plotting the places I'll take Megs to see if she ever decides she'd like to come visit me in Michigan. The pictures we took on my camera came out great, for the most part, and when I get a chance to get on Mark's computer, where they're uploaded, I'll post some of them.

I got my tickets in the mail on Tuesday for the Lep show in Detroit, the ones I bought off ebay. To my delight, the seat numbers are 6 and 7. I had been concerned that although they are in Row 6, they might be so far off to the side in the Right Section that we wouldn't have a good view. But seat numbering usually goes from the inside out, i.e. the center aisle outward, so it sounds like we are very near the right-center aisle, six rows from the stage. I am a very happy camper indeed. :D Not bad for $285, when up til now individual tickets that close to the stage were going for more than that. *pleased with self* So, I've sixth row seats for that show, and 3rd row center seats for the Lep show in Cleveland in September. It is turning out to be a good year for concert attendance.

At work life plods along. Phoenix is clearly being groomed for my former boss' job, being added to all the committees the old boss was on, given additional responsibilities on a massive scale, etc. On one hand I'm delighted -- I think Phoenix will probably be a good boss to work for, someone who likes me and is happy with my work and is fairly relaxed about most things. On the other, though, I'm kind of upset with her. In the lead up to her interview for this job she's taking on every new and interesting task that comes along without even telling me about them until I stumble across them later on myself, so she's getting all the fun stuff and I'm left to do all the boring stuff and, no doubt once she gets the new job, all the boring stuff she was supposed to be doing and didn't have time for because she was too busy doing all the fun stuff. This annoys me lots. My boss' departure offered us both a chance to expand our roles here and get broader experience. Instead, it's Phoenix getting all the experience and me plodding along as if my boss were still here. *not happy* But since Phoenix is the apparent conduit for all information as to what additional tasks need done in my boss' absence, I don't have any say in the matter whatsoever, and given that the big boss already seems to dislike me, I daren't go to her and ask to be included in the conversations about what "new" tasks need to be done by Phoenix and I while the supervisor's position is open. *le sigh*

Mark's lawfirm is going great guns, with three or four new clients every week. Unfortunately he just seems more stressed rather than happier. Don't know what to do about that boy.

melissa2u and clandestine269, I received both of your packages in the mail yesterday. Thank you sooooo much, both of you! *smooches lots*

Well, back to the grindstone for another day of work. Hope everyone has a good Larry Day! :D

I'll post them tonight if I can.

Thanks so much. It's just very frustrating.

I'm sure I will! I didn't get a chance to listen to them yet as Marie's package included a bootleg U2 show DVD which drew my immediate attention. However, I'm sure they'll be fantastic. Thank you soooo much for thinking of me. *smooch*

Only 6 days from Sweden to Michigan? *impressed* Thanks for letting me know you've got it.

I take it, you know where to find the setlists for the concerts? If not, check out www.u2tours.com.

As for the Black Velvet mix, it's actually a little story connected to that one. I'll e-mail it to you, with the list of which songs are on it.

You're so very much welcome! I owe you more than I'll ever be able to express. *smooches back*
