Another good day today. The highlights included a trip to the dentist (which isn't really a drawback, since my teeth are in excellent health, and getting them cleaned felt nice) and a subsequent lunch trip to LaRosa's.
Tonight, my mother and myself (accompanied by a friend of my mother's) went downtown to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra in concert. Despite some difficulties with traffic, both in arriving at the venue and in leaving it, things went quite well. Some reflections:
On the Upside: Phenomenal sound, and a light show that's an absolute kick in the pants to boot. I'm probably going to be a twist deaf for the next day, but, after a show like tonight's, that's perfectly fine.
On the Downside: An unexpected and heavy-handed dose of Christianity during the first act (most of it tacked on to a bland "this is the ~*MIRACLE of CHRISTMAS*~ kind of story). I went to this thing to hear some good music, not to get proselytized.
Overall, though, pretty good. And, this was the first actual live music concert that I had ever been to. It only took me 24 years to get there, but hey. Better late than never, right?
Also! The movie Avatar. Any of you out there seen it yet, or planning to see it? I'm not quite sure if I want to spend money on it, and a second opinion would be welcome.
