Just another Manic Monday...

Well it is effectively Monday here, as yesterday was a holiday...

The day so far?

Woke up early, got out of bed late (heh hem), dashed to work, checked my blog, checked some other blogs but didn't have time to read them or comment (why is it that when you are short of time everyone seems to have posted a blog the size of War and Peace?), then hit the pile of work that was waiting for me!

Lunchtime I headed for town with my guitar on my back, checked the bank and found that we were richer than expected, so I grabbed lunch and then went and sat on the top of the mound that is in one of our local parks. I posted a pic of this a while back. I sat on top, eating lunch and playing a somewhat warped version of the Ray Charles song "Hallelujah I Love Her So". What I hadn't realised was that sitting on the other side of the memorial that is on top of the mound was an old couple who were visiting the town. I was very embarassed when they wandered around the corner and asked if they could take a photo so that when I was famous they could show people! I had to laugh!

Then back to work, a bit of time reading blogs and then more frantic work. Gah! Still, things are clearing now, just waiting for something to appear on my email and then I can go! Yippee!

Sorry for the crappy post!

Why Rock Chef, whatever do you mean when you say "Woke up early, got out of bed late (heh hem)"?
Surely you must have just fallen back asleep?

You sly dog you ;)

Sounds like your day started off with a bang! (Oh, man. Even I can't believe I just typed that!)

Did it occur to you to offer that older couple a video camera? Hmmm?

Teresa said...

Ah..."being married"...isn't it wonderful?!

I would have been embarrassed too but hey, maybe they were right and you will be famous someday...the guy on the hill...

Monday - any way you look at them, they're just tough.

I think you need to play a tune for us and then we can say, "we heard him before he was famous".

Way famous....

Ha, well yesterday my blog post was anything but long. Just a comic ...
One day, someday I'll learn how to play the guitar.

Ali - Yes, went back to sleep, that was it...

Terri - I am SHOCKED! :-) You know I did have my camcorder with me too!

Teresa - The guy on the hill? I think there might be a song there! And yes, "being married" is great.

Jen - I am working on it, not long now. Just hope it is worth the wait!

Sitting in Silence - yeah, and if I do get famous just think of the stories you will be able to sell about me!

Zig - It is coming. If I don't get to do a video I will just do an audio track. I am moving my PC into the shed (the one that was going to get a drum kit but never did) so I can do some simple multi track recording - computer generated drums, plus me on bass and guitar. I have a lousy singing voice so I will spare you that!

Sid - It was a very good cartoon, though! And yes, you must learn guitar! I swear that it is easier to play a real guitar than it is to play Guitar Hero!
