As a surprise for disbandedtoastr's upcoming birthday we saw Jonathan Coulton in concert last Saturday. Full credit for this brilliant idea goes to reddheaded and her husband. So droidgirl, Redd, Toast, and I crammed into my VW Beatle and headed out.

I wish I could have inserted a memory chip into my brain to record all the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, textures, and feelings from last Saturday's concert event but that technology hasn't been invented yet which makes this post limited by my small memory capacity, exhaustion, and a limited vocabulary. In short, IT WAS SO AWESOME!

Over the next few days I do intend to do a series of more descriptive posts about the concert, the detours, post pictures, Toaster's Stick Figure Theatre illustrations, and maybe even videos.

But first let me introduce JoCo Caramel! Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Thanks to Redd's spotting a Russell Stover billboard advertising Free Chocolate (free chocolate?!?!? I'm there!!) we made a side trip and that's where Toast picked up our trip mascot - JoCo Caramel the Traveling Bear. We got pictures of JoCo at nearly every phase of the trip, the only exception being actually with Jonathan Coulton (duh!) and that will be remedied next concert. On the ride home we decided JoCo needed his own journal to document his adventures so we've created a community called jocobear and are hoping to get everyone to join. This is our first attempt at a community and we have no idea what we are doing yet so bear with us... (a pun!) Oh, that community is probably where the Stick Figure Theatre will be showcased so if you want to see Toaster's drawings (and trust me, you do) you will have to go there.

That's all for now but... Coming Soon!
* JoCo's response to John's amazing T-shirts.
* The proper way to handle a detour.
* What not to do in front of a cop in traffic.
* How to respond when flicked off.
* Fate at the Heliotrope!
* Guess the number of ThinkGeek shirts at a JoCo concert.
* Poll - name your favorite song for closing out a concert
* Is a blouse appropriate "rockstar" attire?
* Guess the number of Dragoncon faces spotted at a JoCo concert.
* What is keeping right and how can you achieve that?
* When is the proper age to start wearing Depends?
* Why is PMS and Russell Stover a dangerous combination?
* Four girls, a bear, and a VW Beatle

Please think about the following questions. If you are in an inclusion classroom, please be sure to mention this in your discussion thread. Should all children be educated appropriately in the regular classroom? Would the education of children with disabilities be better today if Congress had directed in 1975 that children with disabilities not be provided "special" education, but that all children be educated appropriately in the regular classroom? Please provide your response and comment on two other students' response. Please be concise.

Hahah! Your post is too funny!!

I need an animated icon that says... "
Recalculating... Recalculating... Refuckingcalculating!!

And one that says:
When you say “keep right” how ‘right’ am I supposed to keep?

Ummm - my feelings about inclusion could best be expressed with a monologue from the afterschool special "Johnny Can't Read" starring Lauren Hutton and MC Escher ... superstar!

Check out the one I made!

how is the homework going considering i kept distracting you today (sorry!)

oh - i temporarily changed jocogo's email to mine so that i could validate the account so that i could post and stuff. i'm so sleepy. i haven't added interests to jocobear because it wouldn't let me sign on. i'm going to try again in about 15 minutes to see if it was just a fluke. LJ seems to be acting weird tonight.

good luck with the homework!!!!

God help me, I've added the livejournal of a sockpuppet bear to my friends list.

You were using the "driving for dummies" navigation system, that does the "recalculating" thing whenever you do something it doesn't like, then?

Navigation System! That's what it's called! I kept calling it Redd's Magical Talking Box. She didn't like us very much. She didn't actually say "recalcufinglating" but it was implied.

And it's okay! It's not a sock puppet! Not any kind of puppet at all! Thanks for friending our bear. We will have to get a picture of him with Torchy watching tv on Sat - maybe with Sarah holding him or something so he can get Alaska-scat on him. (Scat in the metaphorical sense, not in the physical sense or the Ella Fitzgerald sense.)
