Things & Stuff
2006-07-22 - 12:31 p.m.
This is Day Two of the three Saturday nights I have been asked to work at Camelot...which means we have a substitute drummer.
I've been singing with this band for nineteen years, and so I'm relied on a great deal for lead and harmony vocals. The substitute is the drummer I replaced. He plays well, but he doesn't sing. So Bob won't be able to do most of my songs because he doesn't know most of the lyrics. He has enough trouble focusing on playing guitar, calling the songs, working the crowd, etc. So it's stressful for him to not have me there. It's stressful for me because I WANT to be there.
But then, Camelot has worked around my band schedule for the entirety of the fourteen years I've been working there. It's only fair that I work around THEM for once.
The gray cat hasn't been back on my stoop in awhile.
There are a lot of cars that race around, both on the streets and in the alleys. I hope he's okay.
I'm a cat person. I like all pets - dogs, birds, fish, snakes, whatever - but since I'm away so much I prefer feline companionship. We're allowed to have pets, but my roomie doesn't like fur.
If things work out in the future, I'd like to have two cats: a fair-haired male and a brown female.
Their names? The male will be The Doctor, and the female will be his companion, Peri.
Ten points if you get the reference.
I've discovered something as I've gotten older: I value my "quiet time".
Just sitting back and relaxing, watching a DVD or a ball game on the TV, or reading a book or newspaper, listening to CDs...I've discovered more of a need for it.
I don't think it's the kids playing in the schoolyard outside. That's just background buzz.
But just "alone time". Maxing and relaxing.
Turns out I was wrong: Animaniacs Volume 1 comes out this coming Tuesday, on July 25th.
But season 4 of The Pretender did come out on Tuesday...and again, by waiting until Friday I'll save about 30% when I buy it.
I'd love it if they did one more, to wrap it all up. There are still so many questions left unanswered. The creators of the show have said they just need funding for a final movie - it's already been written. I hope they get it. I'd love to see it.
And Andrea Parker was just so good.
That's all for today. Be seeing you.
