Meet Me On Monday, 8/23/10

1. What is your favorite kind of doughnut?

If it's just plain Dunkin' Donuts, then I love Blueberry Cake.  But if I'm in Ocean City and we go to The Fractured Prune, then it's French Toast, Morning Buzz or Sand!

2. How often do you pray?

I don't; I'm an Atheist.

3. What is your favorite kind of music?

Beatles and Paul McCartney all the way!  Plus most stuff from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

4. What do you order when you eat Chinese food?

I love Orange Chicken from Panda Express; for "real" restaurants, I like Pineapple Shrimp or Chicken.

5. Would you rather snowboard in the winter or swim in the summer?

SWIM.  No question.

Speaking of Beatles and Paul McCartney, Becca, my mother-in-law and I took a road trip to Pittsburgh last Thursday to catch Paul in concert.  I've never gone further than DC for a concert, but when I heard he was playing Pittsburgh and there was no mention of DC, I figured we needed to take the plunge.  And I'm so glad we did, because it turns out that was the last night of the North American Up and Coming tour!  It was a fantastic show, and went on for about three hours with two encores!

A couple got engaged on the big screen while Paul played "My Love", and a young woman had her thigh signed by Paul so she could get it tattooed!  How do you get to do that?  How do you get seats so close Paul can read your sign and grant your wish?  I need to look into this.

Here are a few pictures from the night.  Not great, because they were taken with a camera phone from nosebleed seats.

Grandma and Becca before the concert:


Please come out soon!


Paul wore a white shirt, so he's a white blob in almost every picture!


The pyrotechnics during "Live and Let Die" - the performance of this song ALWAYS blows me away:


Leaving the stage for the last time - the sad part of the night:


Please come back soon Paul!

Even from the nosebleed seats I'm sure you had a wonderful time and the pics didn't turn out to bad.
