It is Friday and I have to admit that it has been awhile since the idea of a weekend was something to look forward to. No, obviously, it is not because I have big plans on the town. I wish. No, it just means that I get a break from working all day. This week was the start of online learning for my district and it has definitely taken me a bit to feel like I’m up to speed. I’m hoping that the rest of today is pretty productive so that I don’t have a lot of work to do over the weekend and can just relax.
All that said, there are a few things to look forward to both today and in the next few days for me. On a personal note, I am having a happy hour with a friend tonight and on Monday, my campaign team will get together, virtually, to hold a victory party, no matter the results of the worst election day ever. On the Duran front, there are two things to get excited. First, Duran Duran’s twitter will be getting a workout with a chat with Mr. John Taylor. Unlike previous Fridays, the chat will take place at 2 pm EST or 7pm GMT. I suspect that there will be a lot of people wishing John well, which I can totally understand. Even I am feeling like commenting and I never try! (But it is John, right?!) After that, you can party with our favorite DJ at 1 pm PST. I, for one, cannot wait to see what gems are included in the setlist!
Of course, if you are anything like me, listening to a fabulous set of Duran only makes me want to see a show. While we cannot have that yet, we can remember the good times we have had at shows. Just this week, I saw a couple fun BINGO sheets from Concert Weirdos. (Anyone else follow them on Twitter?) Here they are:
So, how did you do? Did you make a BINGO in the top one? The sad part in the first one is that I can almost cross every single box off. EEK! I’ll just say this. No tattoo for me! I have thought about one but nothing has really ever stuck with me long term to really consider it. What about the bottom one? That was is designed to be “more extreme”. That’s fair as there are more boxes that I cannot cross off. On top of the tattoo one (again), I, thankfully, have never been given the mic to sing at a show. Once in Biloxi, the kid next to me was given the mic for the Reflex. I remember that he really had no idea what Simon was asking and it came out as banana rather than ta-na-na. Anyway, that is not one that I would *want* to do. The same thing could be said about being pulled on stage. I have no need for that! I guarantee that the audience would agree.
What about the rest of you? How did you do on these BINGO sheets? More interestingly than that, are there ones that you have not done but wish you have? Maybe then, when concerts resume, you can aim for that as a concert goal!
