musical box

Musical Box was fun, and I actually recognized most of the songs. :-) They are a Genesis clone band, apparently doing everything with uncanny authenticity (Jeff is a major Genesis fan and was quite blown away by how accurate everything was). Ran into local filker Ed LeBel (from Vampire's Kitchen). After the concert, our friend Brian turned to me and asked, "So how does it feel to be one of the two women in the audience?" :-) He was exaggerating, of course, but he was right about the male-female ratio attending the concert.

Jeff's feeling better now, though he's still taking painkillers and using a heating pad thingy at night. We might be able to go pick up my new bike today, though I don't think we'll be going on any bike rides.

Thanks for the advice on umlauts. Here is a test:

    Umlaut using option-O then U: ˆ (looks right in my editor)

    Umlaut using cut-paste from Steve Brinich's message: ˆ

Hm...neither seems to look right when viewed by Netscape.
