Well, dear readers, this week has flown by, like a gazelle playing the harpsichord.  How can it be Friday already, and yet it is Friday already.  I gotta tell you.  The good news is that I got ten-and-a-half hours of very needed sleep, not arising twelve-thirty.  Once up, I had e-mails to answer, telephonic conversations to have, and a few things to tend to.  Once all that was done it was already two-thirty, so I went and had a Philly cheesesteak sandwich and a side Caesar salad for my meal o’ the day.  Then I picked up no packages or mail and came home.

Once home, I buckled down, Winsocki and finished rearranging the concert commentary, then wrote the new bits for the new material, so that’s done, although I’m sure I’ll finesse stuff before Sunday.  I listened to some music, and then I finally sat on my couch like so much fish.

Last night, I was in the mood to watch some awful Flix of Net movie and I must say what I chose was probably the worst of the lot, a movie entitled Close, starring Noomi Rapace, she of the Dragon Tattoo movies.  There isn’t a single moment that isn’t predictable and right out of Screenwriting 101 – the prologue showing us the mettle of bodyguard Noomi, her having to watch over and protect a petulant teen girl, get beat up, shoot people, save the day, have breakdowns because of a past we don’t know about yet, and on and on and on.  It’s runs about ninety-four minutes, which is about ninety minutes too long. Naturally this is a “Netflix Original”, meaning they had nothing to do with it aside from acquiring it for distribution.  Rapace does what she can, but it’s a complete time waster, which of course is what I was looking for.

After that, I listened to music, did some work on the computer, saw a potential cover for the new book, which I kind of liked, and then it was time to write these here notes, which, in case you haven’t noticed, is what I’m doing.

Today, I will sleep in again and if I get another good night’s beauty sleep, I should be back to rights again, sleep-wise.  I’ll eat something light but amusing, I’ll hopefully pick up some packages, I’ll write some liner notes, I’ll start proofing the new book, and then relax.

Tomorrow will be more of the same, and I may go the Autry at five, just to make sure the set-up is correct, but then again, I may not since I have to be there at ten on Sunday.  Sunday, I’ll be at the Autry at ten, we’ll do a sound check from ten to eleven-thirty, and then we do our first show at one.  If we come down on time, which is three, that will give us a mere two-hour turnaround, and I’ll have to rest my voice, as I talk a lot and am singing a song, too.  Then we do our second show at five, and after I think there’s some kind of dinner thing. Next week is all March Kritzerland planning – got to figure out what the show is, cast two more people, and choose songs.  I’m determined to be ahead on this one and I’m also going to start planning April’s show. I’ll send the book to the three proofers for proofing and I’m hoping I can get all those fixes by the end of the week so that Grant can start designing the book.

Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, sleep in, eat, hopefully pick up packages, Xerox the book, proof the book, and relax.  Today’s topic of discussion: It’s Friday – what is currently in your CD player and your DVD/Blu and Ray player?  I’ll start – CD, many things.  DVD screener, Cold War.  Your turn. Let’s have loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, amazed at how fast the week flew by.
