So I am kind of.... pissed off. It's been one of those days.
I couldn't get Blogger to work for a while, which seems to have cleared up. But after fiddling and fiddling to get a post up, one gets antsy, you know?
Then I bused my butt down to the south of the city to buy a facy-pants banjo pickup. This thing is lovely, but holy cow is it expensive. Anyway, I got to the store, was ignored by the salespeople, and finally managed to buy it. No harm done. I have since opened it up to see that I can't install it myself, lacking the proper tools for soldering. This means I get to bus my banjo down to the shop after work tomorrow, have them solder it, bus back home, get ready for a gig, and boot it to the cafe.
This sounds a whole lot like CRAPPY to me.
And then I made a lovely dinner for my sweetheart, and due to some miscommunication, finished cooking it and lighting romantic candles over half an hour before he arrived.
I feel like taking a long bath, or eating a large cake, or perhaps even smashing something with a mallet.
On a brighter note, when I didn't feel like killing someone, I filled out this little self-indulgent-all-about-you things that can really be quite fun. I borrowed it from Hula Seventy.
