Things & Stuff

Gad, what a weekend.
We had a gig Saturday afternoon...which meant breaking everything down and hauling it to the place at about 3am Saturday morning. We were going to start at 4pm, so I figured I could go home and sleep until noon and get there in plenty of time to set up.
But my sleep was bad. The dreams were bad. I mean, Tales-From-The-Crypt, bloodletting, flesh-rending BAD. I even caught a glimpse of this guy.
By the time I got there, I was exhausted. On top of that, I had a pounding headache and hadn't eaten since the night before.
The gig location was hosting a chili cookoff, so I figured I'd grab something there. Thankfully, they were also selling burgers and hot dogs. So I DID get to eat something. I also popped some Advil and hoped for the best.
Well, we did really well...so well that they may invite us back to play regularly. Well, since we were cut down to one night a week at our current location, we just may make the leap if we get two nights again. We'll see what happens.
Then we broke down, hauled everything back, and went our separate ways. Me, I went to a restaurant and had a good dinner.
I got a chance to see the schedule for this coming week, and found out I had been scheduled to work Thursday night...the night that I already had a ticket to the Angels game. Fortunately, we tweaked the schedule so I could still go.
Then I came home, dealt with a couple things, and then relaxed with Muppets and the DVD of The Fifth Element.
And now, today. It's Monday, which means a link to Mark Steyn.
No word from CAIR yet.
A skeleton walks into a bar. The bartender asks, "What'll you have?" The skeleton says, "Give me a beer, and a mop."
Want to do something different with a Haloween pumpkin? Well...
The day awaits.
I just hope I can deal with it.
Be seeing you.
