My left ear is still not working right...

So we went to go see the Red Hot Chili Peppers! Good show. They've been in the business a long time and know how to entertain. The opening bands were ok. I liked Queens of the Stone Age, but not enough to go buy an album of theirs. The RHCP didn't play many of their old songs, mostly stuck to stuff from the late 90's to the present. Oh well.

The night was not without some drama. There were some jerks seated behind us that wanted to pick up our seats and toss them around, which was specifically verboten by the Breslin Center. Ellie being the person she is turned around when she heard them planning this and said something to the effect of "I'm really anal about rules, and if you do that I'll tell and have you kicked out." The morons behind us didn't take to kindly to that, and used some colorful language to tell Ellie to get whatever was stuck in her rectum out and to f*** off. I wasn't suprised by their reaction to Ellie's attitude... I told her later "You reap what you sow," so when you are nasty to people they treat you in kind.

Well the concert went on and the guy behind us keep pushing the our seats into our legs for a while, and eventually quit it when we ignored him. Moron. Right at the end of the show he's shaking the seat, and Ellie decides to plop down in it to spite him. Well, a minute or two later he kicks her in the back! So Ellie goes over to the security to have the guy removed, but he happens to have about 7-8 people sitting around us that are friends of his, so they start getting mouthy and threatening when we try to go back to our seats. We decided to leave at that point rather than escalate the situation further. Too bad we're not all a little better equipped to deal with conflict, but how long is human history and how many times have people been violent. It sucks.

Other than that things were good. I start at my new lab on Friday. There is a lab meeting, so I'll go to that to start getting an idea of what is going on. That's about it at this point. We plan on going down to Hillsdale this weekend to watch Rob play. He's leading Division 2 in tackles at this point in the year, so I'm proud of him. I hope he keeps it up.
