My band played last night to a good-sized crowd in a smoky bar in Lake Lotawana, Missouri. I thought I had a couple of groups of friends coming out to hear us, but nobody showed up. I don't really blame them because it's quite a drive from Kansas City proper.
This morning I woke up at 8 (after going to bed at 3) because AT&T was scheduled to install internet, cable and phone service. Unfortunately, it turned out that they couldn't switch the phone over on a Saturday, so I basically interrupted my sleep for nothing. Their tech was very nice, though, and enamored of our cats. She said she'd been a vet tech before she became a cable installer.
So now I'm awake and very tired but not really sleepy. My ears are still ringing from last night, albeit not as much as they would be if I hadn't worn earplugs through most of the sets. At some point I need to go to the grocery store to get ingredients for a chili cook-off I'm attending later today. Then I need to go to a different grocery store because my main store doesn't carry the milk I like.
My tentative plan is to get my shopping out of the way, start the chili cooking, and take a nap while it simmers. Oh, and watch last night's "Ghost Whisperer," even though I'm hating the substitution of Jamie Kennedy for Jay Mohr. Somebody get that man some acting lessons!
Okay, I just read over everything I've written so far and it's obvious that I'm not operating at full capacity. I think that's a sign I should try to go back to bed and save everything else for later. Goodnight again!
