Seriously No Parking

This is the very last place I would want to be caught parking my car.
Nuns in a Rugby scrum around the Honda with ticket books and rulers haunts my dreams.

You Can't Come Backstage Without A Pass!

Most venues require a laminated "All Access" pass, but the Fiesta Oyster Bake people issue all band members, crew, and guests with the yellow wristbands seen on the man who couldn't get his wife and children into the restricted area.
Security was firm--the girl who got Chrissy to sign her big left titty tried to use her naked breast as a ticket backstage but the cops weren't playing around.

Ben Was Wise

From the Fiesta Oyster Bake.

In the background is the sound mixing console I didn't operate today.
Photos were more important to the band, although I think I should have run the first few songs anyway just to give the hired crew an idea of what rock music is supposed to sound like.

Had a Sony Memory Stick failure today.
The good news is that it doesn't technically belong to me and has low capacity so I don't really give a shit.
I always format before using a stick that has sat around unused for months, and that's when the error code showed-up.
I'm waiting for Sony-branded 2GB Pro sticks to hit $20--then I'll be all set.
As it is now I can't shoot more than 300 photos before returning to my computer with a case full of memory--a 2GB MSPro will put me past 1000.
I think one is all I need, but spares are required since they won't make such small-capacity ones for very long and 2 gigs is the most my camera was designed to handle. Probably need to buy three at least to ensure my future.
I've been bitten in the ass a few times by last-year's size going on sale then being withdrawn from the market before I had enough of them. Won't pay full price, won't buy inferior brands, still pissed that I paid $35 for a 64mb MS a few years ago when you can get 2gb for that much now.

The camera and computer memory market is a racket.
Every year they double the storage capacity, yet the prices soon fall to where they were before. So they double capacity to get the morons to pay full price again.

Truth In Advertising?

I'll have to take their word for it being Gourmet.
Our snake hasn't said anything one way or the other.
