Emilee has been quite sick with a stomach virus this weekend. I actually attempted to go see The Decemberists in Asheville this past Friday night. I made it all the way to Asheville and realized I had to turn around to take care of my lovely wife who was puking her brains out. She kept trying to tell me to stay, but really, I couldn't have enjoyed myself at the show knowing that she was sick. I was looking forward to seeing them and the opening band Sons and Daughters, but Fletcher assured me that their live show was nothing to brag about. I suppose he's right, I guess I was just looking for a show to go see. It's been quite a while since I've seen a decent one.
I settled in to watch Pollock last night, but fell asleep halfway through. Thank god for TiVo. I managed to hit the record button before I fell asleep. It looked really good and I enjoyed what I saw, but I suppose I was just more worn out that I knew. I was up all night the night before trying to take care of the aforementioned individual, who was, aforementionedly, puking her aforementioned brains out.
Beyond that, I donated some money to the Boy Scouts of America yesterday at the supermarket. I know it seems odd given all the other "worthy" causes I could give my money to. But I was a member of BSoA for a long time, and I had some great memories of it. So, in a weird way I felt like I was giving my inner child a pat on the head. (Notice my refrain from making any homosexual jokes during that last paragraph).
I'm getting ready to go to Jacksonvill this Thursday to present a paper on Craig Thompson's Blankets at the Popular Culture Association of the Southeast. I'll manage to post it online when I'm done either on The Commonbond website or this blog.
