>The concert was great. So why did it take me two days to get back here to blog about it? Umm …. I was recovering? No, we had our Circuit Assembly and I had to go. It was a promise I made to go to the concert.

Ever been to Mohegan Sun? Since I don’t gamble I have never been. I didn’t know that casinos also put on concerts. Anyway, the bathrooms have plastic on the toilets, and there are these green things, a round disc on the wall with a motion sensor or a green button on the back of the toilet to push, and the plastic goes around so you have fresh plastic to sit on. Of course I didn’t do it, I mean, I use the public restroom in GCT, I’m going to worry about the restroom in the middle of nowhere, Connecticut? I did wave my hand in front of the green disc after just to see if it worked, and it did. Yeah I know, some of you are shaking your heads at me. :p
Em and I had dinner at The Dubliner

An authentic and lively 3,000 square-foot Irish Pub, The Dubliner features traditional pub fare, including Guinness Stew, Bangers and Champ, Corned Beef and Cabbage and much more. Choose from an assortment of beers on tap, enjoy a cocktail with friends at the bar or relax by the fireplace. At The Dubliner, you’ll feel like you’ve been whisked away to the heart of Ireland.

Going to the restroom I encountered this sign:

And then this sign:
So glad they had the English up there, could have been embarrassing. And inside the ladies room was this sign:

No idea what this means, maybe somebody could help me? Anybody?

Dinner for me was ‘Bangers and Mash’ (sausage and mashed potatoes). Em had a Caesar salad with chicken. I had this specialty Vodka and caramel drink for dessert, kind of yummy, I think, I don’t really remember. Then we walked around and looked at the shops until we could go in the arena.

I was going to get a Rob Thomas hat like Em got in NY when she went to see Rob at the Beacon, but they didn’t have any. I got a wristband that has the concert in a USB thingy and in a day or two I can download the encore. The opening act at Mohegan Sun was Ryan Star. Em bought his CD, which he was going to be signing during the intermission so Em sent me down to do that. The picture is kind of blurry I know. Also, before he was done with his act, I dropped the CD, it fell down into the row below, so I just climbed down and got it. Someone should tell me I am not a teenager anymore, I now have a huge bruise on my left knee.

Getting the CD signed I didn’t get back until Rob had already started Fire on the Mountain. Then there he was! Rob Thomas! Ok, this is really what I saw:

We were glad we went to Mohegan Sun, his concert at the Borgata was cancelled and rescheduled for January 9, 2010.
