Beth sang at the Crofoot last Friday. She opened for this guy named "Todd Alsup". He was pretty serious about his music career. He had a crew of people with t-shirts that said "Todd Squad" and his fans had stickers with his name on them.

Before the gig I was pretty stressed out. It was my last day of work before my vacation and I had to try and tie up loose ends so I didn't leave Olaf with a lot to do. I was pretty hungry and out of cash. I thought we left my wallet at home but it turned out it was in between the seat and the door the whole time.

I borrowed $20 from Brooke and ate at a local diner. I ran into Dave and Lindsay and two of their friends there and had dinner with them. I was running late for set-up time and had to cut through the line to get to the front to get inside and help set up.

Jim's new girlfriend Dawn was there. Also in attendance were Stella, David and Clancy. Grace Farr and her daughter. Jim Territo and a friend showed up after Beth finished. Two guys from my work showed up too: John Burgess and his wife and Mike Loveland.

After the gig I started putting things back in the car. On my last trip back I was at the corner of Saginaw and whatever road the Crofoot is off of and I was waiting for the walk signal. There was a car to my left that wanted to turn right. Their light turned green and my light said I could walk so I walked. The car was turning but I was sure that he was going to slowly inch up and not proceed until I passed but he kept going. It became obvious that he was going to hit me so I stuck my hands out and he bumped me and hit the brakes. I said "what the heck are you doing?". He looked at me and said "you alright" and then drove off. I yelled again and said "what the heck are you doing". I had a camera around my neck but didn't think to take a picture. Besides, with digital cameras, they take a while to boot up. I stuck it in the air and pretended to take a picture of him but either he didn't see it or chose not to respond. Maybe he saw that I still had the lens cap on it.

So I went inside and told everyone that I had been hit by a car. It's kind of strange because, I know if I hit someone with my car that I would be shaking and saying "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, are you OK?". I certainly wouldn't drive off. Oh well. I thought I would be sore the next day but I wasn't. My mother-in-law said I should still get checked out and then went on about how people can develop anurisms that don't activate till years later.

Beth and I had driven separately. I walked her to her car and then Beth dropped me off near mine. I walked to it and found that I could not get in the driver's side. There was someone with the passenger door opened in the car next to mine, preventing me from getting in my car. They were facing away from me and then I noticed that they were peeing. So the guy doesn't notice me so I get in my passenger door and climb over to the driver seat. I started the car and then he noticed me, finished up and stumbled off.

Yay Pontiac.
