It's a bit too Phishy for me?

I just cooked Mahi Mahi for dinner. I baked it in a dish with a plethora of ingredients - orange juice, lime juice, cilantro, pineapple and zucchini. Why, you ask? To cover up the fishy taste. That's right, I said it. I eat fish not because I like but because society tells me that I should eat it. This reminded me of another fish, Phish.

I'm a bit embarrassed to admit, that even though Phish has been a staple at my local music venue - Merriweather Post Pavillion - for years, I've spent many years partying in the parking lot, and never, never even thought of actually listening to the music. What's worse? How about the fact that at Bonnaroo 2009, with two nights of Phish, I still did not listen to the music?! I know.

So, I'm taking a new approach, phishy smell and all. I'm going to a Phish concert, and not just one, but two nights in a row. It's only appropriate that I see them at Merriweather. This time I'll be there for the music, and the partying, but really mainly for the music. After all, they do have a Ben and Jerry's flavor named after them. So popular that it has it's own Facebook page.

I'll keep you posted. Now, I open this up for all of your harsh comments. I can take'em because I'm no longer in denial.
