I flew to Spokane, Washington, this morning, then drove west about two hours, with two of my co-workers. Right now I'm sitting in a hotel, looking across the street at the Grand Coulee Dam (I think it's the largest in the US).

The weather is beautiful. I'm due downstairs in two minutes and we're going to go find some dinner. And maybe a beer.

I got up in the middle of the night to piss and saw the pile of crap and thought fuck my bladder, not attempting to step over all that.

If you try it, let me know if it works. And you will want to wear slippers at night (obviously, I think.)

Me and my friend, J (female J, not male J) went 'shopping' this afternoon. Now, neither of us likes clothes shopping particularly, and this wasn't fun clothes shopping, this was sensible shopping for clothes that are suitable to politicking and giving a good impression. Dull, dull, dull.

We made it to Leeds, parked up, got as far as my favourite sushi bar ...and spent about an hour and a half in there eating sushi and green tea cheesecake, and drinking bottles of lager. So then, we thought hey....we really had better go at least look in a clothing store. We did, but by then we were running out on our parking ticket and J had to get back to Hebden Bridge for 5, so we just looked and left. So basically, we went to Leeds, walked about in the sun chatting and lodged ourselves in a great sushi bar. Good afternoon in the end :)

Received a message today from our dear daughter that included the line "I love you!"

*Big* highlight. :)

Thank you sweetheart, I love you too.

First day of tryouts for the school musical, Once Upon A Mattress.
spent four hours on the phone with caro. either shes leading me on (entirely possible) or i really do have a chance with her again maybe.
Second day of tryouts. Characterization audition went great. practice for vocal audition - i think i sang better than i ever have before in my life.
GUITAR CAME, expect pictures of me showing it off soon

Vocal auditions. Not quite as good as yesterday but I think I did pretty good, especially compared to some of the other guys. i should know what part i got tomorrow.
field day at school - i got out of having to actually do field day so i could photograph it for yearbook. that was fun.
then just now, back to school dance. shitty music, of course, but it was really fun, and i hung out with a group of kids im really starting to make friends with i think.

i just hope my recent string of good luck this week holds out.

Because you like us;) And some of us know what you're going thru -for the support.

I like seeing you in here, Deuce.

I'm checked out of the hotel, sitting in the lobby, waiting for my co-workers so we can catch a plane home. I just realized that my watch is set for Denver time and I'm an hour early.

Sorry everyone...but it really is the little things sometimes.

they just condemned the building behind us. Now maby the condo owners will stop trying to get us lowlife renters evicted.

DanaC 08-24-2007 05:05 PM

Don't worry Deuce, we're right behind you still.

Clodfobble 08-24-2007 05:59 PM

I thought you were moving in a few days anyway, fargon?

I managed to get my whole kitchen scrubbed, vacuumed, and mopped this morning. Of course then lunch happened and now it's filthy again. As far as Mr. CF knows, the kitchen is never clean, ever.

Ibby 08-24-2007 07:14 PM

Ouch, didn't get a part. I was cast as an extra.
Oh well.
