News, News, News

Still no job news. Or at least no good news. One company was supposed to call me back early this week. And no, the phone hasn't rung. I did get the number they called me from originally ... that turned out to be the generic company number.

Health isn't good news either, though I am finally kicking this sore throat/coughing mess that stuck with me for days.

The good news, instead, is that I now have a fiance ... I snuck the ring to the Renaissance Festival (with a little help) and then sprung it on her when she seemed least suspecting. She did say yes, but WOW those eyes got big. I briefly thought about using a stage or getting one of the acts involved, but I knew that she'd probably have been spooked enough to run. Instead there were still bystanders, but it wasn't a huge production. I still get giggle fits occasionally just thinking about it.

And last night was a great concert down in Annapolis. Tickets were paid for by a friend who owed me some money and the performers were awesome. Willie Porter is a guitar whiz. Hearing and watching him play led to some unbelieveable moments. I mean, he played from slow to finger-picking-with-both-hands extra-fast, and occasionally retuned a couple strings to get the right chords for certain songs. He was followed by Vance Gilbert, who was also impressive. His guitar playing may not be as masterful, but his voice is better and he does more with it. I'd be happy to see either of them again.

Made me think I should borrow my father's guitar and play some while I have the spare time. This weekend's going to be full of soccer, just like Columbus Day weekend was.
