friday random elevenish: “can’t breathe” edition

30 Nov

Greetings from Friday morning. It’s been a long week, not the least of which because I’ve spent it primarily on the phone while sounding like a frog, or blowing my nose, or coughing up yellow/green mucus, all while surrounded by freezing temperatures, sometimes on the inside (my office yesterday was weird). Except for Tuesday, when I called in sick. I’m slowly on the mend, but I’ve blown through two boxes of tissues this week, just at work.

In spite of all the snot and nose blowing and whatnot, I made some significant work progress (or rather, my staff did, but they did so allegedly under my leadership? I dunno), made it out to open mic on Wednesday, not to perform (see previous paragraph), but to support my fellow musicians, and because I just needed to get the heck out of the house. Funnily enough, the bartending staff outnumbered patrons that evening, so I just had a beer, shot the bull for an hour, then came home and went to bed.

Really not that eventful a week, I guess. Just cold and sick, with occasional quality kitten snuggles, especially last night when I needed them.

Stuff on the agenda this weekend is relatively light (for us, anyway); there’s a Christmas dance performance for the rest of ’em on Saturday (I’ll pull some form of dance dad duty, as usual), I have an appointment for my 55,000 mile scheduled service at the Toyota dealership, and on Sunday, Barry’s going to have the Curry In A Hurry truck over at Hardywood, so that’s where we’re headed for dinner, I think.

That’s about it. On the two week clockwatch now. Holiday break is in sight.

Oh yeah – tunes. Lots of punk/pop riot grrrl today, a great Cheap Trick cover, and a pretty great Pink Floyd tune to close it out.
