Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?

OVFF part one

It was a nice drive, but I have now been up (with a short nap) since 4:30. Not a good idea. I was feeling a little out of sorts earlier. WAY out of sorts.

They announced the one-shots, and my name was an alternate. So I ran and got my guitar, and then they announced that they mispoke, and the one shots were the next day and it was two-fers tonight. So, got a little worked up. I don't get nervous very often, but I certainly was tonight. As it stands I am an alternate for the one-shots in the early afternoon, and Toyboat is on at 3:10, which is more important. We are signed up for Roman Wall Blues, but I think we are going to do our version of The Lady instead, at least that is what I hear from someone else in the band. Fine with me, I agree that revealing our more twisted side (as we did at the blues jam) is pretty important.

Tonight in the circle in the hall I got a few songs in, Oh Shannon (what a twisted way to introduce myself to folks who hadn't seen me), Only Coffee House In Town and How Can I Miss You (with folks singing along this time). That helped my mood a lot, and now it's sleep time. Too long awake, with two nights with too little sleep.

Tomorrow I am going to the DADGAD workshop and the dulcimer workshop (late since it's about the same time as Toyboat are going to play)

It's turned into a good day ... how was your day?
