Boy, did I feel stupid yesterday.

I drove out to the place where I needed to file the form that will finalize my divorce. And it wasn't till I got there that I realized -

I had left the form at home.

Since I had no idea how to fill this out, I had had someone with previous divorce experience do it. It had my signature on it. And, since it was legal paperwork, I just didn't want to take the chance on screwing it up by filling out a new one incorrectly. And I was too far away from home, so by the time I a) fought my way through traffic back home, b) got the paperwork, and c) fought my way BACK through traffic to the legal center, it would have been closed.

So, like Little Richard said, "Come back tomorrow [night] and try it again".

Stopped off at the music store. Maybe it was the lighting there, but I finally saw that my cymbal stand had a nice big crack at the adjustment screw, which explains why it wouldn't stay in place. Fortunately for me, they had some stands that were overstock, so I got a new one for about $35.

Then dinner at El Torito. While I was eating, it started to rain - not surprising, since I also forgot to take my jacket.

But I made it home alive, and curled up to watch Deal Or No Deal. A cop from NYC went all the way and won $100k. One of the Banker's offers was about $171k and what was "in the vault"...which turned out to be a dozen donuts. The cop laughed his ass off, then said "no deal". It was a good nail-biter of a show.

Brin and I also planned her further excursions down here, including plans for annual passes at Disneyland. We have to get the premium ones, because the blackout dates for the "deluxe" ones are all on weekends. For her visits, we'd be looking at trips on Thursdays and/or Sundays, so it's worth the extra cash to be able to go anytime. The premium ones also include free parking. And even when she's not here, Disneyland is a great place for me to do my walking.

When I finally crashed, I slept maybe my cold is almost done. Which means that, now that I've said that, it'll come back with a vengeance.


Oh, and today's title comes courtesy of Miles Davis.

Well. Time to get on with it.

Be seeing you.

Oh, I'm glad you're sleeping better! When it was my turn for the chair, I heard you cough pretty badly a couple of times through the night. I'm very happy to hear that you're recuperating. Meanwhile, remember I carried that little bottle of Purell all over hell and creation? I caught something anyway, probably on the flight home. Several little Petri dishes knwon as young children who were doing that Hawk Hawk Hawk kind of cough without covering their mouth. Bless their pointy little heads.
