What Happened Was...

I have skipped three runs so far this week.  My speed workout, my fast 5 miles, and another three mile run.  I was going to go out today for my 5, but my tummy is not agreeing!  I did have Taco Bell last night, so....that'll do it.
Me Today
I had a couple of firsts yesterday.  I went to a Heavy Metal concert at the Rave in Milwaukee.  Never been to the Rave.  Never been to a Heavy Metal concert.  The bands playing were The Black Dahlia Murder, All That Remains, and Dethklok.  The second band was definitely my favorite.  There was actual singing mixed in with the scary screaming.
Dethklok has a cartoon on Adult Swim, Metalocalypse.  When they played they had animation going behind them, which I liked.  It definitely added to the show.
All That Remains

Dethklok - pics all sort of suck from the bright lights behind them.
Watching the audience was also fun.  We were up in the balcony so could look down at everyone standing down in front of the stage.  There were crazy mosh pits.  Towards the end, two guys carried another guy to the door and threw him out, then high-fived each other.  There were tons of people crowd surfing and were caught by the security at the front.  It was sort of like watching a gymnastics routine with the summersaulting dismounts out of the crowd.  There was also a girl I saw go crowd surfing twice.  She had some crazy high heels on, fishnets, and a boustier type top.  The second time she was going through she got dropped.  Then, after she popped back up to standing, some guy lifted her back up onto the crowd to make her way back to the front.  I would have been pissed if I got hit in the head with one of those shoes!
Another first was that I drank a whole beer!  I am not a beer drinker, but I wanted something simple to drink.  I tried a 312.  It was really good.  No gross after taste like Miller Light, which is what everyone here seems to drink.  I would definitely drink it again.
The beginning of the day was spent taking my mom to the library and returning a few things.  I found a new series of books to read.  They are mystery books and the main character knits.  One of the books is called Skein of the Crime.  I love puns!
My mom also made some sort of oatmeal chocolate chip bars.  They were still warm when I got there. Yum!

My cat has also been cuter than usual lately, if you can even imagine that!  He loves sleeping completely covered in a blanket!  Sort of like being in a cacoon.
Eggroll sleeping.

I have to go get ready to go to work for two hours for a meeting.  Seems like a waste of a shower since I didn't even run, but I have ALL weekend off. Yes!

What are your weekend plans?
