Well, dear readers, I’m guessing Mercury is back in retrograde or Venus is in Uranus again because there are so many irritants in the air right now I cannot bat them away fast enough. So, let’s all send out the most excellent vibes and xylophones for all irritants everywhere to be banished to Uranus via Venus and Mercury. Let’s kick that retrograde in the ASS, shall we? There is simply too much going on to have these irritants irritating. One simply wants no irritants and to have everything running smoothly or getting everything done in a positive fashion becomes daunting, oh, yes, it becomes daunting. And if Mercury is NOT in retrograde then what the HELL is going on anyway? I has spoken.

Yesterday was a Mercury in retrograde kind of day, or certainly a Pluto in Uranus kind of day. I set the alarm for eleven, which would have netted me eight hours of sleep. This bedside iPad is just about done, I’m afraid. I set the damn alarm and it’s 50/50 whether it will actually go off or not. So, it did NOT go off and I did NOT get up until a bit after one o’clock. That was irritating. Perhaps I needed ten hours of sleep, but my intention was not to miss the entire morning and an hour of the afternoon. Once up, I answered e-mails, caught up on a few things, then around two-thirty I went to the mail place only to find that the brilliant USPS hadn’t even brought the damn mail yet. They are a pain in my personal Uranus, that much I can tell you. Then I went and had a chili, cheese, and onion hot dog and a few fries for my meal o’ the day – that was about the best the day had to offer – and then I came home.

I began the liner notes for the classical release and did about a page, but I’m not sold on the approach yet – so I’ll see how I feel this morning when I reread. Maybe I’ll like the approach. Otherwise I’ll find another approach. I do like the first paragraph very much, so that will stay no matter what. Then I listened to music and relaxed, had a couple of telephonic conversations, had a couple of the chicken mini-taco things for my evening snack, and that was about it. I mean, on the one hand I did get a sort of ME day, but it was so filled with irritants that I couldn’t quite clear my mind in the way I wanted to.

Today, I will be up by ten, as I have an eleven-thirty meeting with a singer about doing an act for her. I’m sure that will be fun, as I like the singer very much. Then I’ll hopefully pick up some packages and mail, then I’ll continue writing the liner notes and I have to figure out a lot of stuff that needs figuring out and that includes deciding what the October Kritzerland is and who’s going to be in it. I gotta tell you.

The rest of the week is meetings and meals, doing and going, attending an opening night, and whatever else comes along. Not sure what the weekend holds, and the following week is hugely busy.

Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, have a lunch meeting, hopefully pick up packages, write liner notes, figure out the Kritzerland show, and relax. Today’s topic of discussion: It’s Ask BK Day, the day in which you get to ask me or any dear reader any old question you like and we get to give any old answer we like. So, let’s have loads of lovely questions and loads of lovely answers and loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, hoping that the irritants of Mercury and Pluto and Venus and Uranus will be gone quickly, like NOW.
