I know you're all waiting with bated breath to see how the minor civic and domestic issues I mentioned earlier this week have been resolved. In brief:
All of the neighbors gathered on Monday evening to find out the results of the parking survey. Everyone said that they don't want the entire street to have restricted parking; however, they wished that the guy on the corner would stop parking so close to the intersection. City officials plan to start by asking him nicely and proceed to put up "No Parking" signs on his block if that doesn't help. My husband and I were the youngest people at the meeting by at least 15 years in his case, 25 in mine.
Believe it or not, I actually got an e-mail back from Time-Warner Cable. It said to call the same number I'd called yesterday. D'oh! However, I pressed a few dishonest menu keys and managed to make my way to an actual person. They're not coming out until next week to fix the problem, but it's not that big of a deal.
Yesterday we auditioned a keyboard player (who basically talked his way into an audition, as we weren't actually looking for a keyboardist), and another lead guitarist. It was kind of nice to have keyboards to fill in the sound on certain songs, but I'm not convinced that it's worth dividing our paltry earnings by 6 rather than 5. The guitarist impressed us by - gasp! - actually having learned the songs he told us he wanted to play. His tone was a little Dokken-y on everything, but perhaps that's fixable. No decisions have been made yet.
Aren't you glad for that thrilling report? I think I need to work on having more interesting adventures.
So how's your week going?
