Depeche Mode was my first concert ever. I'm shocked my mom let me go. We had to drive up to Houston (100 miles). On a school night. It was really fun, though. Recently, one of my friends who I went with back then joined me to relive the experience. Surreal. But still a super fun show.

Note: At the time of this post the list ran through #31. I'm going to add to it, however, to keep track of future concerts.

And some bonus tidbits:

* I have a list of 100 things for which I'm thankful (idea stolen from Geek). However, since she hasn't posted hers I'm waiting to post mine. It was her idea after all. I just didn't want to wait to start mine because I didn't want to be influenced by her list.

* I'm feeling uncertain because I found out today that my supervisor is leaving at the end of the month. Wonder what's going to happen to me? I'm an orphan yet again...

* Also, even though I'm in Austin and could eat anywhere, listen to this hotel menu item. The Ranch Cobb: Chopped greens served with smoked brisket, colby cheddar and pepperjack cheese, caramelized onion, roasted tomato and avocado. Yeah, sounds freakin' good to me, too.

Another great list, cjh! You've been to lots of concerts! I guess if I sat down and thought about it I'd realize I've been to more than I think....maybe I'll just do that.

And OMG that Ranch Cobb sounds DELISH! I hope you tried it!

NO!!!! Don't be sucked in by the salad! Get your butt out of your hotel room and go to dinner at Z Tejas! Or Stubb's! Or El Arroyo! Or Kerby Lane! Or Magnolia! Or a hundred other places Bubba and I can't go to because we are thousands of miles away! Please! I beg of you! My unborn child begs you! I have to live vicariously through your stomach, and I demand a margarita and quacamole from El Arroyo!!!

I have never been to half that many concerts. You literally rock.
