This week was crazy at work, and it has spilled over into the weekend a wee bit. But NO MORE! It is DONE. And pretty much ready for Monday.

Friday night was a Toad the Wet Sprocket show. It ROCKED! And Rams Head Live did not have a power failure like the last Glen Phillips show did there. It was great to hear them again. I didn't even realize that it was the opening night of the tour, but they were convivial and amused at some of their own rust. They played many awesome songs, too many to list. I was too busy singing along and dancing. I just wish they had played Nightingale Song, but they played so many others of my favorites I'm not sure they would have had time. Confidentially, I know what song I would have dropped from the set list in favor of that one, but I know my friends like it so nevermind that. =D

It was followed by a long walk in the warm rain across part of downtown and Little Italy over to Blue Moon Cafe. They open Friday and Saturday nights at 11pm. Yes, they are an actual cafe. Their Eggs Benedict is excellent. We were the only table until we left around 1:30 when a couple had just sat down.

The only downer for me is an electrical failure at the house. One circuit blew its breaker and refuses to reset. There's a bunch of lights and a ceiling fan on that circuit, but only two or three outlets. One of those is for our sump pump. I've unplugged what I can, but it's still breaking the breaker. Oh yeah, the doorbell is also on that circuit, so no doorbell for us until we can figure it out. I'm hoping we don't have to go into the walls to deal with it. Ah well. Nothing like what you guys have had to deal with lately, but that's why I've been rummaging around my crawlspace and drop ceiling like a fool. As if I'd know what I was looking for, other than a dead mouse and incriminating teeth marks on a wire.

Now that I'm done with the last of work stuff, feel free to call, email, or send carrier pigeons.

I thought Toad the Wet Sprocket had broken up? When did they get back together?

They did break up. But they got back together for a tour 2 or 3 years ago, and then they just kicked off another tour Friday night.

Just glad we could get the electric fixed! I kinda felt guilty not being able to help yesterday, ants and floods and all, but alas, all is taken care of.

But amen to a great show! Even if there was alot of rain involved at the end there. But hey, I'll take that kind of rain for another Toad show.

ants?
we got a little but of flooding, from the sump working overtime, and filling up
the sink it dumps into.
and, we got water coming in from the roof..
we've had the roofers by twice, and it's still getting in the flashing, when we have major down pours, about once a year..
