Aimee Mann and rock climbing

Who would have thought that a free concert in a huge city would be really crowded and getting there a mere 2 hours before the show started was not early enough?!?

This was the view of the stage from where we camped out:
While it was really cool to sit and listen to music outside, surrounded by tress, it might have been nice to have a clear view of the stage as well. Ah well, maybe next time.

Here's a picture of the crowd in front of the stage:
Can you see why this is such a neat venue for a show? I can't wait for the Shakespeare festival in the fall.

Tomorrow night I have my first class at the rock climbing gym. It's just a beginner belay class to see if I like scaling fake rock cliffs to reach the top and experience the joy of ringing a bell. The thing I don't understand is why Jason signed me up for this when two of his friends have recently broken limbs doing almost this exact same thing. It's like he somehow got the idea that I'm coordinated and strong enough to cling to a wall and propel myself upwards at the same time. If I end up with a broken arm, I'm going to be the first person to tell him "I told you so"

  1. You'll love rock (or fake rock wall) climbing. I started about a month ago and it'll definitely make you cut very quickly. I'm saving up for my own shoes and a much more comfortable harness. I'm sure the next time I see you'll be ripped. All those climbing folks are strong as hell and cut.
