So, I haven’t made an update in a while. I guess it’s about time I did that.
You know, I hate it when I have a weblog or a journal that I really enjoy reading, and the person stops updating it. I guess that’s kind of selfish of me, but I try to realize when I’m being that person. I don’t know how many people read this, but every now and then, I get a question asking me why I haven’t posted in a while, and then I start up again.
So. Great Big Sea is just as amazing as I thought they would be. No. Even more awesome. I couldn’t in my mind envision a concert that would be that much fun, or sound so amazing. Not only are they hilarious, entertaining performers, they are also musical geniuses.
They did this little section where they wanted the audience to sing along, and they played a few songs that everyone, or almost everyone should know.“I fought the law, and the law won”
“Summer of ’69”
“We Will Rock You”
“Sweet Dreams Are Made of This”
And if there is one thing that I can say about all of these songs, is that it doesn’t matter what genre or what type of music. They rock it out, and they sound AMAZING.
I honestly can’t imagine enjoying it more, unless perhaps if I got to meet the band. I would go again. And again and again. I hope they keep touring.
I got to see a c-section birth yesterday. Sometimes, you know, I feel truly blessed to know the people that I know, and get the opportunities that I’m given. Never mind that I lied to a ton of people about the fact that I’m (not) a med-student. It was amazing.
They show c-sections on channels like “Discovery Health” and whatnot. But really, it’s nothing like being there. It’s nothing like seeing the amount of work it takes, the “pressure” that is used. The amazing ability of the doctor to do it all without batting an eyelash.
I kid you not, the uterus was removed entirely from the abdominal cavity, and laid out to be stitched back up. That thing was ENORMOUS. Possibly the coolest thing I’ve gotten to see to date. The doctor showed me the fallopian tubes, where the ovaries were… it was kind of cool to see him “role-playing” that he was teaching me stuff. I knew most of it, but it was still neat to see it.
The baby was big, too. Healthy, screaming boy. He had a huge head. Head that big? Sign me up for a c-section. Every day. Even after watching one.
It’s been so long since I’ve made a post, I almost don’t know where to stop! (Remind self to write e-mail to Janet about this week.)
Ok, so. We drove to Madison for the concert. After the concert, we drove back to Sioux Falls. BUT.
There was a blizzard. It was a damn bad one, too. Couldn’t see anything, couldn’t relax, couldn’t just drive. It was horrible, and stressful. It took us almost 11 hours to drive the 4 hour trip from Melvina to Sioux Falls. We got in to Sioux Falls at almost exactly noon, and I had to take off immediately for Arkansas. I didn’t get home until ten. So I was in a car for nearly 23 hours. Yeah. That was fun. YEAH NICE!
Dane Cook. Figure him out. He’s funny. 🙂
Good enough for now!
