I don't really know what I am musing on these days. It's more like an irregular stream of consciousness thing...it seems to be working.

Magpie, Covetousness, Me

We went to The Police concert in Oakland last night, which was rather fun, albeit a tad slow at the beginning. Maybe it was the whole tantric thing, who knows. Anyway, still fun, and of course, I then realized...I must have an electric guitar TOO.

What is wrong with me? I have no clue, but I do know that I was doing the internal magpie thing of "oohooohoohshinyshinyloudshinyloudMEMEME". Granted, I think it would be most appropriate to get one when the girls are at an age to be completely mortified by their hopelessly uncool mother attempting to be a rockstar. Don't you think?

In terms of the concert though, I seriously do not think I've seen an older or a whiter crowd at anything beyond an Osmonds show. It was mad. Also mad: trying to swim upstream with the rest of the mindless salmon to cross the bridge from the Coliseum to BART. I have what you may call a touch of claustrophobia, but it's never progressed to state of panic...last night? It was distinctly unpleasant to feel the anxiety rising in my throat and I cannot tell you how much I had to work to keep myself from clawing, literally clawing, my way out of that crush of people. I was also thankful that I had worn my punktastic combat boots, because I was also thinking I could throw in a few kicks to shins to aid my escape. Fortunately, I was not pushed to that level, but it was a learning experience to Heathers: stay home, with a pan of Nanaimo bars, and listen to the CD if you must.

But I got to see closeups of Andy Summers wailing away, and that was fun. And Stewart Copeland, I realize, is kind of what my dad would be if he were an aging and probably completely strung out rocker. Which was scary.
