His Holiness The Dalai Lama will be giving teaching sessions and… I’m pretty sure ‘sermon’ isn’t the right word… but speaking at the Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor this weekend. It’s a big arena, University of Michigan plays basketball in there. As much as I would like to attend, I’m pretty sure I can’t get a ticket, I feel my seat would better benefit someone else, and I wouldn’t know what to wear… I’m pretty sure a 1979 yellow DEVO jumpsuit wouldn’t cut it. The news media is in the area, I’m guessing from Chicago, I don’t think there’s very many actual news agencies left in Detroit. So, what kind of outrageous garbage can I make up about this instead?
So um, like, uh, yeah, I’m in line at McDonalds for breakfast this morning, and I look back and the Dalai Lama is right behind me. I didn’t recognize him at first, but I started looking at his glasses, I think he has the same brand of frames that I do. Anyway, it seems he was down at the Blind Pig late last night checking out the local punk scene and did a few too many Jager Bombs downstairs at the 8-ball Saloon. I thought he was going to order an Egg-a-muffin, but he went for the pancakes. Apparently it’s hard to get Vermont Maple Syrup in Tibet, or India, or whereever he keeps da crib. He had a bunch of those new gold dollar coins, apparently they’re easier when you don’t normally carry a wallet.
Yeah, right. Well, I have a friend who will be attending, so hopefully we’ll get more on this.
