Well, how did that happen? (Zoom did it! Thank you Zoom!)

I've started fantasizing about getting a new guitar. Not because my guitar really needs to be replaced, and not because I'm swimming in money, but because I've been using and abusing the same guitar since I was in high school. That puppy has been dragged all over hell's half acre, and it's exhausted. I've written everything I can on it. Lately, I've been writing songs on my old Washburn classical guitar that I got when I was twelve. Maybe it's time for something different. Something that rhymes with a Shibson Shummingbird. Unfortunately, the "shummingbird" is hard to find in Ottawa, and trust me, I have been looking. This might require a trip to Toronto. Daaaarn.
I have a gig at the Rainbow on the 25th. I probably won't have a new guitar by then, but a girl can dream. Speaking of which, y'all are invited! This should be a particularly fun show. I want to cover a cheesy pop song, but I can't decide which one. Perhaps something by the tragic Ms. Britney Spears? I will gladly consider suggestions, if you can think of anything ridiculous. Or maybe I'll just recycle the cover I did at my CD release party....
Nothing like a little Lionel Ritchie to brighten up the night.
