She Is Staggering

Earlier this year, I experienced the pure joy/nostalgia overload that was the Adventures of Pete and Pete reunion at the Bowery Ballroom.

On Tuesday there was yet another reunion, this time clear across the country in Los Angeles.  As much as I would have LOVED to go, I don't think I could really justify the travel expense on this one.  It was one thing to spend nearly $100 on tickets for the reunion in February when the only additional costs were gas and PATH tickets, but it would have cost somewhere around $1000 to go to this one, so I had to pass. ;-)

It's a shame, because there were additional cast members there: Damian Young, aka Bus Driver Stu Benedict (who was in the audience, but not on the panel, at the reunion I attended) and Rick Gomez, aka Endless Mike Hellstrom.  Also, freaking POLARIS was there, performing live.

I am desperately hoping that they will play more concerts, preferably in or near New York City or Philadelphia so I can see them without breaking the bank.  In the meantime, I'll have to be content watching the videos folks are uploading to YouTube.

Here they are performing one of my favorite songs from the show, or in general for that matter:

I hope everyone enjoys the holiday weekend!  I'll be making my usual farmers' market trip, watching the season premier of Doctor Who, meeting up with one of my college roommates for lunch, and attending multiple picnics.  What are your plans?


  1. Holy crap, I didn't realize the premiere is coming on this weekend. That's what I get for not having cable... must find a place to watch. Ack..

    We are staying with friends at the moment they don't have cable either, I'll probably have to get a hotel room. :)

    1. We actually are going to a friends house to watch it. We don't get BBC America, so we normally get the season pass on iTunes and hook up our computer to the TV to watch. ;-)

  2. yeah that's way to much money to spend on a reunion concert but at least you can live vicariously through the youtube videos :)
    PS when do we get belly pics?!

    1. Soon I hope!! Go to my husband's baby blog ( and tell him to put the belly pics on my computer so I can post them. Because me harassing him isn't working, and they're on the expensive camera that I'm afraid to touch. ;-)
