The Gentle News

If I jumped every time a light flashed around here I'd end up talking to myself.

Television has taken over my free time not currently occupied by worthwhile endeavors, and there’s not a single piece of active coax (Justin‘s HAM junk excluded) in our house. The boys and I have been on intermittent but heavy Scrubs and 24 binges lately. The best part is that it isn’t affecting my productivity at all, or at least not negatively. It’s so weird that I don’t have a job at the moment, but I feel like now more than ever I have my shit together. School is going great, the band is still quite rewarding, and I haven’t really lost touch with any of the good friends on whom I rely to stay sane.

I got a job offer today. I don’t have many details, and it doesn’t look like something I’d really dig, but it’s a job and I’m going to make damn sure I give it a chance. It might not materialize at all, but let’s just say that I received a personal email from a VP at a decent-sized local firm who is interested in me helping to start a new division of his organization. Now, by help, it might mean I could end up as a brainless peon, but who knows? It could be a decent start.

The band is going into the studio Saturday, so I’ll be indisposed until late for the next few weekends. One cool development there is that John might offer his mad violinism to us.

Also on the band front: I’ve been given 20 advance tickets to the Dallas Music Festival, which will be Dec. 4 trough 7. The tickets are $15, but I’m authorized to sell them for $12. If you’re at all interested in coming to see us and a bunch of other acts, or you just want to support us, please contact me soon and I’ll sell you one of these tickets. We don’t know which night we’ll be playing yet, but I’ll let you know as soon as I know.

Mama was here this weekend, and it was cool. She cooked and we just hung out. I missed her a lot.

I’m supposed to give my grandmother a x-mas list very soon, but I have no idea what to list.
