Riddle Me This, Riddle Me That

How's everyone doing this week? Wonderful? I sure hope so! Well, since the past blog a few days ago, we've settled into a more typical and predictable tour. We had ourselves our first bad show (I won't say which one, but if you were at a show and you thought it was good, I'm probably not talking about that night), Julio is sick, I'm sick (though not quite like Julio since I don't require a trip to Urgent Care :P), we're all tired and sore. Yeah, sounds like tour to me. At least we're in Chicago! Its looking like we won't be making it to our show tonight seeing as our singer claims to barely be able to talk let alone sing. I'm trying to think if we've ever made it through a tour without a trip to Urgent Care for Julio. I think if we toured long enough, Julio will have visited an Urgent Care in each state. Which, if you think about it, is a pretty dang impressive feat! So, good job Julio, you deserve a medal. Though, oddly enough, I was the first to need an Urgent Care trip first out of everyone on our first real tour back in the Summer of '06. You see, we had stayed at this guy's house in a rather rural part of Ohio. Amish country. We even heard some drunk Amish guys drive down the road in their horse drawn buggy being loud and boisterous. Anyway, I believe it was that night that I got a nasty spider bite on my hand. I thought it would go away but it just got bigger and bigger and that sucker hurt! So a few days later, I had to break down and go to Urgent Care. Thankfully there was one right down the street from the motel we were staying at that day. They were very helpful. Oh yes. They said take Benadryl and get out of their office. So I did. And slept through the rest of the day. Good times. That would constitute my one and (so far) only trip to UC while on tour.
Ya know, not much has really happened since that last blog I wrote. We've traveled quite a few more miles. Played some pretty rockin' shows. I managed to drop my computer and now my dvd drive doesn't work. That's pretty sad. I mean, yes, I have all ten seasons of Friends on my iTunes/iPod but not The Big Bang Theory! Speaking of the big bang theory (the actual theory, not the show), did you know that one of its fiercest opponents was the first to actually use the phrase "big bang" in correlation with it? Interestingly enough, if you really think about it, "big bang" isn't accurate anyway since there was no bang since there's no sound in space and it was actually incredible small. Smaller than an electron. There have been attempts to rename it over the years but nothing sounds quite as catchy as "the big bang." Hence, its stayed. I've been quite enjoying my cosmology book. I'm not gonna lie and say that I understand much of it, but I understand enough. I've gained a lot of knowledge the past week or so. I wish I understand the actual science behind some of it, but I guess for now, I can accept the outcome and try to learn the reasons behind it later. I'm thinking for my next science book, I might go with something on Quantum Mechanics. Try to understand that a bit better before attempting to make sense of String Theory since at its core, String Theory is an attempt at joining Quantum Mechanics and Einstein's theories of Relativity. And . . . I've lost your interest, huh? That's ok. I'll get it back somehow . . .
LOST skipped this past week so thankfully we didn't miss it but I shall soon be faced with a massive dilemma which I have discussed at length before. I'm not sure whether to watch it online, try to watch at people's houses, or just suck it up, stay off the internet and wait till we get home to watch all the final episodes in a row. Its a tough call. Any words of advice?
In other news: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Warner Bros has announced that the third Batman movie from Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale is coming out on July 20th, 2012! Yes, I do realize that's more than two years away. But ya know what? I don't care. The simple fact that they're gonna make it is all that matters to me. And that its in IMAX again. Mmmm, today is a good day!

However, the closer to the top spot you get, the more accurate the list becomes. If I'm feeling up for it, I might do some fun little statistics of my list for next week but we'll see if I feel its worth it. I think its about time to wrap this up. Bam! Its wrapped up.
