I realize its been over 3 years that I've had this blog going. And WOW - what a difference a day makes. I was talking about starting my new job, getting engaged, spinning in Philly and the BoSox winning the series. So we're obviously in a different place now. With myself and the world. Very interesting to see how much of a change can happen when its actually documented. I have books that I write in, some of you may have seen them, but these books have been documenting things for me for over 10 years now. Which really feels insane in some ways.
So a few weeks back - I achieved another life goal. This one was standing in front of a crowd and playing songs. Both that I wrote and covered. Thanks to Kris for being an amazing friend and musician. Karen and Kris have provided me with what I think is the best gift I've ever received from someone I wasn't related to or sleeping with - an acoustic guitar. I haven't put it down for more than a few days in the past year. I've wrote 3 songs (4th on the way) and learned how to play a bunch more. I don't have that mac account anymore or else I would post some of them. Mainly the great cover of Soul Asylum's "Somebody To Shove." That was just amazing.
I believe I will check off more life goals as the next year goes by. Had a few this year already done - and maybe December - we check off one more. I'll let you know if that happens. Thanks for everyone that came out that night!
So Christmas is here. What? Yeap. Thanks Black Friday and bad radio stations. It's not even December and I'm already waiting impatiently to turn to the station when that damn Christmas Shoes song comes on. Now, yes - I admit being a hypocrite. I did buy the KT Tunstall Christmas CD from Target, but I haven't listened to it yet. BECAUSE ITS NOVEMBER! So step away from the garland and put down your red Starbucks cup and go on your MERRY way, as you would in June. Until Saturday, then GO, roast your chestnuts on an open fire and get sucked into every sale. Is 24 days really just not enough time to buy gifts for people? This year - I got it easy. The family is getting a collective gift. Either tickets to something (regardless of the strike), or a device that you probably are using at the current time.
I will say - I'm back in Philly next Saturday, Dec 8. and I love that city during the holidays. It should be fun!
