Stuff, and TMI Tuesday #204

Symphony rehearsals are in full force. With a twist. The conductor's father is on his deathbed in Pennsylvania. He's got an uncommon brain disease, and his cognitive functions have pretty much left him. And quite suddenly. So the conductor has gone back to be with the family. We've got a substitute conductor for rehearsals, and he'll be back for the last few rehearsals, regardless of what his father's condition is. Makes for a bit of a stressful time, but we'll all get through it...
I'm thrilled that Rock Band came out with a Beatles version. I've never played it, but the exposure to the Beatles music to today's youth is a good thing. But is anyone one eeked out by seeing John Lennon on Abbey Road in their commercial? The rest of them look okay from whatever archive footage they had, but John looks confused, sort of like an old man at a celebration that he's not sure what it's about. Sorta stoned. Well, ok... But they all look alot better than the computerized Orville Redenbacher commercials!

1. Have you ever shared sleeping accommodations with someone of the without anything steamy happening? (Opposite sex for breeders, same sex for homosexuals). - Actually, that's the norm for me for awhile...
2. Have you eve streaked, flashed, or otherwise partially or totally exposed yourself in public before (or after) an informal, unofficial gathering of people? - Oh yeah, there's been some skinny-dipping in front of strangers, and some of that youthful indiscretion from my college days.
3. Have you had dates with multiple people in the same weekend (or consecutive nights or the same night) while not all of your dates were aware of your actions? - Oh, yeah. Invited a girl to a ski lodge where we had a gig for the weekend, only to have my best friend bring the other girl up to hear us (not knowing about my other plans). Needless to say, it was the end of the relationship with the girl I'd brought with me, but fortunately, the other girl was a tad naive, so we were able to continue along for a few more months.
4. What is the most "romantic" you have ever gotten in a movie theater? - Geez, that's so long ago... I'm sure the hands have been down the pants (both of us), but honestly, I don't really remember.
5. Have you ever had sex when you knew a non-participating adult was watching? - Not that I'm aware of.

Bonus (as in optional): If you could say anything you wanted anonymously to anyone, without identifying that person, what would you say? - If you'd have bothered to get up off your ass and run a decent criminal investigation, you wouldn't have been able to fuck up my life twenty years ago. And while the death of a child is a terrible thing, when your son felt he had to run away from you and ended up in a shoot-out with Detroit cops, it was one of the best pick-me-ups I've ever had. You were/are a lousy private attorney, a worse county attorney, and an utter failure as a father.
