Tiptoe Through the Tulips

At the first match the family sitting in front of us brought in their own food.

They ate little tangerines, raisins, and trail mix.

At the half every one of them disappeared and came back with pizza, hot dogs, and hot chocolate. They also left every scrap of garbage under their seats.

I get bringing in food if you must because you want healthier choices. But I thought it was pretty funny that they used it as an appetizer until they could dig into the real stuff.

It’s like when you bring a lunch to work and it’s: carrot sticks and fruit and turkey on whole wheat. Then you eat it by 10am and go out at noon and get a meatball sandwich and chips.

I spotted a tulip out front when I got home yesterday.

Last night when we finished with the DVR but before we turned off the TV, we caught part of a documentary about the band Genesis (They’ve been around forever but were especially popular in the early 80s). This was not one of my favorite bands or even a band I cared much about and honestly, if you’d mentioned the documentary earlier I would have expressed exactly zero interest in seeing it. But we were mesmerized. The show brought together the main band members and interviewed them in the present together with lots of clips from the past. It was really well done and you could still get a whiff of bitterness among some of them. hehe.

    A Genesis Reunion Is in the Air Tonight
    By Devon Ivie

    Their creative exodus is no more. Genesis, one of the world’s all-time best-selling bands that your uncle loves to blast in his Chevrolet Camaro (who are we kidding, we’re jamming to “Land of Confusion” right now) is officially reuniting for an arena tour later this year. The classic lineup of Phil Collins, Tony Banks, and Mike Rutherford will be joined by longstanding touring companion Daryl Stuermer, as well as Collins’s son, Nicholas, for a series of November and December tour dates in the United Kingdom.
