My new job, which other than being full time while slated for part time was wonderful, has just gone to part time, starting next week. But my wonderful manager is also gone, canned by our slimeball DM and moved to another store. I don’t have a good read on the new manager yet, but at least I’m finally part time. Even so, the culture at the job was supposed to be “Honesty, Integrity, Courtesy” and has changed to “Watch Your Back”.
Something got me back into wanting to play music, and I instantly found two great songs to learn, one by my oldest friend, Blind Lemming Chiffon, and the other by an old folkie, Dick Pinney. And then I bought the local newspaper (a weekly I haven’t gotten around to buying in a long time) to discover there is a nearby open mic (the last of the year, sad to say). So I’m going out tonight to play, hope it goes well.
I have a lot of life to reassemble which had been sidelined by the full-time-ness of the new job. I’ll need to get back into mintCast, but need to miss one more show to get rested up. The Bardic College is just sitting there doing nothing, but that’s approximately all it had done for years earlier so I can still find a way to resurrect it when I have time to do so.
I’m still a difficult husband. But my difficult wife is figuring it out better as we go along, and we’ve stuck together for nearly 3 years now.
I still have to figure out what to do with this Raspberry Pi I was given, and have to put together a fundraiser for the Distrohoppers’ Digest show. I have a pledge of $50, a donation of $30, only need about $120 more and I’ll have the laptop I really need.
Hope things are going well for whoever may be reading this. Feel free to comment.
Huge Hippo Hugs,
