It’s not a bad life that I lead.  I get sortof mopey sometimes, but then I snap out of it because really, my goodness, I get to do so many cool things and I have such great friends.

I’m totally in love with my disco improv band: Gretchen’s Disco Plague (It’s Infectious!).  I have a great rotating cast of co-horts from way back in the day to only just yesterday, and we wear stylish outfits and make up songs on the spot.  I’ve long wanted to have this band and now that I do have it, um yeah….I did always want to have this.  It’s just so awesome to be inside of the creation of the music in this way.  Edgy.  I like that.  Does “edgy” not have an “e?”  Hmmmm, why not?  English is hard.

I actually tutored a 10 year old in long division today.  If only my parents could have seen that one, they wouldn’t have believed it.  I thought I did a great job, personally.  I was surprised.

I’ve been making furniture like crazy.  It’s just so awesome, people.  Talk about infectious.  I dream about sanding and making mortises and tenons and furniture design and just being in the middle of the process, I dream about it all of the time.  Of course, when I was a dishwasher I dreamt of washing dishes all the time.  So maybe it’s like that.  But whatever.  It’s super fun, super great.  I’ll post some more stuff as I complete it.  I can tend to be a bit of an 85% completer person instead of doing it all the way.  I’m working on that, tho.

I recorded a Sara Hickman song for the new Sara Hickman tribute album that she commissioned.  Why didn’t I think of that?  Oh yeah, I did.  Anyway I got to work with my beloved Rob Halverson again, the guy I made I Was Just Comforting Her with.  What a pleasure it was to be back in the studio with him.  Really reminded me of what I love about getting the chance to make music.

School is about to end and I couldn’t be happier.  I’m ready to have my life back.  School really takes up time, no one reminded me of that fact.

That’s all I can think of at the moment.  I’m sleepy.  I’m going to post this so I don’t feel like such a loser about never updating my website.  I do love this website, it’s not like I don’t.  I guess I’ve just been busy.

And you?  How are you?
