Seeing a show tonight at the Duplex. Isn't everyone surprised? I'm pretty sure there are other theaters in Manhattan but how come I never hear about them anymore? (Exception for Access Theater, Doodle).

Next weekend I am going to San Antonio and I can't f'n wait for warm weather! This damn rain is not enjoyable. My parents and brother are flying in so we can vacation together for the weekend. With my brother in another state and making his own living my parents are no longer parental figures. It's like we are all buddies that meet up in some city, drink, and dine. Mostly Drink. I'm happy how things have panned out for us. It's probably easier when there are only four of you and the kids move far away.

Does anyone like Sushi? I really love sushi but I don't eat it nearly enough. Last night I went to Monster Sushi which I highly recommend to anyone interested. Is anyone interested? Lets make a sushi date!

I feel crazy right now. Crazy, today, means a mix of giddy and confused with a bit of dread. Just a touch. I blame the demon. Now that I think about it, the demon causes a lot of problems. I agree Doodle and Dar, the only cure must be Vodka plus cabaret production. Does vodka go with sushi?

Release the Demons

So I was permitted to partake in some recording of standards with some lovely jazz musicians last Saturday eve. It was a total slap in the face to realize how much I have lost in the period I have gone without work or training. Very upsetting. I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do about that yet.

Today I went to the Neurologist. He is a delightful little old man with intelligent eyes and a bow tie. I heart him. Basically we just went over my problems and my tests. According to everything I am fine but now I get to take more tests. Yay. The interesting part is that he asked me to talk to my mother about my behavior as an infant whenever I had a fever. Stuff like, did I pass out or shake. She says no but then informed me that as a toddler I would go into a sort of sleep walk state where my eyes were open but I didn't seem to be conscious of my surroundings or I thought I was somewhere else. If you want to know what I think, I think I'm possessed.

I'm all over the place!

Mentally that is. I would love to be able to write in this here blog but every time I start I get distracted and eventually delete everything I had written. I'm just going to throw out a whole bunch of info at once and maybe get some things out of my head.

Tuesday evening some of my friends had gigs on different sides of the island. Even though my strongest desire that day was to crawl into my bed and sleep in a comatose state for the next few weeks, I still went because I'm a rockstar like that.

Gig one was at the Underground Lounge on the UWS. Christopher Hartman does his singer songwriter thing and serenades his audience with mostly love related songs. He just started recording so kudos to him!

Gig two was on the LES at the Bowery Poetry Club. The Dan Loomis Quartet had a CD release show. I have been listening to the CD to get me through the work day and it's really very good. I'm not surprised though. I've always loved seeing/hearing them play. I'd do the links to each of the guys but eh, that's too much effort. Actually, they just had an audition at Jazz at Lincoln Center for some European travel thing. I'm sure you can imagine my jealousy. So, you should come support them with me at some point because they are talented and fantastic people.

I have to find an apartment. I think someone is moving into my room June 1st and I would really like to get that sorted out before it's the last minute and I'm having a heart attack. Also my birthday is June 2nd and there is no way in hell I am moving out of my six floor walk up the day before my birthday extravaganza. Yeah, that's right, I already started thinking about my birthday plans.

I am really very excited about Eyster brunch this Sunday. Drinks and merriment!
