Still, the show was fun and the company wonderful. It was kinda nifty to see Mr. Izzard developing material and watch his interesting stream-of-consciousness development path.
Afterwards I ran into mskitty23 in the lobby and was introduced to Mr. Kitty briefly before escaping the crush of people and getting back to the parking ramp. I also caught a glimpse of a certain librarian Jodi amongst the crowd but didn't get a chance to do more than wave.
On the way home, Nookie's MP3 player started acting up after a Tom Waits song. Wouldn't read the disc, wouldn't eject, pretty much locked up that functionality. And there doesn't appear to be any kind of manual eject. And while I think it's actually covered by my extended warranty purchase, the idea of taking Nookie into a dealership to get a CD ejected is rankling.
This morning it appears to have reinitialized and was able to play MP3s fine. I haven't tried to eject the disc yet, but I am not overly enthused with the prospect of something like this happening again. It plants the seed in the back of my mind for replacing the factory stereo at some point with something more custom, but that is very premature. The tow package will come first, as that is definitely needed.
