12/05/2005 Entry: "Weekend Wrap Up"
I was thinking... My posting has really gone down. You get the weekend wrap on Monday (sometimes Tuesday), the MI-5 on Friday, and maybe--maybe--one other post during the week. I'm a slacker!
Friday night was spent at home. Susan has continued to seek out new supper menus, and she's finding really great stuff! Chicken with apples and cider (good), green beans in balsamic with onions (very good) and noodles. Then, I think we hit the sack fairly early.
Saturday I had a gig in the morning. I needed to be there at 9am for the 10am start. So I got up around 7am, put the drums in the truck, showered, all that stuff. I hit BK for a crossaint and coffee, then went to the bank to pull out some cash to pay Clarke. (When I think the date is going to pay me by check, I try to pull my bandmate's pay out of my savings account. They usually appreciate being paid in cash that day. I know I do!) Gig was fine, and the people were very nice. Before we even got set up I had four people say "If you need anything, let me know." In reality, though, we needed nothing (though Paddy craved a three cheese omlette).
Gig was done at 1pm. To the grocery store to pick up some things for Susan. Home for a little bit. Just long enough to change clothes, really. I had to play in Portland that night, so I thought I'd leave early and do some Christmas shopping for Susan. Four stores and no luck. I don't know if I'm going to get the opportunity to go anywhere else to look. Maybe I'll have to get it online.
Anyway, Brian Boru Saturday night. The friendliest place to play in the world. Busy at first when the hockey game let out. Then it died at 11pm or so. And then, at midnight, it picked back up again. I got home around 3am, and expected to see Paddy pull in behind me.
Sunday morning was church. It was much less hectic in the morning than last week. Lunch was at Mom's, and we celebrated my birthday. I tried to get a nap in the afternoon, but only got about an hour. We had a missionary supper at church on Sunday night, and Susan made Tandori Chicken. It was an Indian themed dinner, and the chicken was great! If you looked at the recipies we were supposed to make, you'd think you'd go hungry. Many of us thought "none of this is going to taste good." In reality, I liked everything I tried.
Now it's Monday. I picked up the Green Hornet today! Yeah! I missed it sooo much. Sure, a $1400 repair will make you think, but then when I picked it up, I thought "Oh man, I sooo love this car!" Leather seats, heat, brakes that work well--it was a regular Duesenberg to me!
And, more "chocolate props" being shot out to Jimmy T. Today he picked me up some chocolate that has no milk in it at all. I'll let you know how it tastes.
Replies: 1 person has rocked the mic!
Interesting...no milk chocolate. Definately let us know how that is.
