*whiner alert*
My partner in the office is on vacation this week, so this is one of the few times in recent years that I've actually worked a 5-day week. (you KNEW I was a pampered creature, so shut up already.) Im totally suffering here. Today I had that 1000 yard stare, a pendulous blob of slobber hanging bungee-like from my bottom lip. OK, that was a slight exaggeration, but the point is I'm glazing over at work and having difficulty focusing. See, I'm a trifle ADD, and I need breaks between work days so I can clear my cotton-wadded head and focus on tasks at hand.

What may actually be worse about this is that my job may be ending soon and then I'll have to go out and get another job, this time probably full-time, ugh. After all, my shoe habit must be supported.

On another sad note - Gary Numan is touring the USA (that NEVER happens) and the closest he's coming to Dallas is Chicago, alas!!! I would really love to see him.

In other music news, Austin City Limits is having a music festival in Austin in mid-September. If Imogen Heap would be there, well, you couldn't keep me away. As it is, I would dearly love to see Massive Attack, but I'll bet you can't get a room within 100 miles of Austin for any of those nights. Still, it should be an incredible event. *envy mode on*

Oh, tomorrow may be an audio post as I am traveling to Arkansas for the weekend to visit me grandpaw. I'll have some spectacular photos from the trip, no doubt. Have a great weekend!

I didn't even know Gary Numan was still alive, much less touring. I'll have to keep my eyes open for him in my area ...

dick - aw shucks! Glad ya like it!

schoobie - no one can say you don't put concerns for others first, my dear! Yeah, even worse, I'm going to get a full time job soon. Sheesh.

david - yup - he had some sort of associative disorder that made him weirdy with people, a disorder that was diagnosed and began treatement just a scant few years ago. Actually, he's a noted pilot and airplane enthusiast, often performing in experimental new aircraft for airshows, etc. If you're in the midwest or on either coast, you're closer to him by 1000 miles than I am. If you go, I'll want a full report.
