So, here I am. Not quite late since it’s only about 9:30ish at night on the east coast. Definitely not early. Not really on time, either. So sorry! (now you probably realize what it’s like to be one of my children, or even my husband when it comes to dinner. *gasp*)
I have two things to talk about briefly…first of all, we’re finally getting vinyl!! I was really becoming concerned that the band had forgotten those of us not exactly born with a silver spoon in our mouths who couldn’t afford the Super Deluxe, Stamped in Gold, Signed, Numbered, Fingerprinted with Blood, Sweat and Tears Vinyl edition that is selling for ridiculous sum of money. Wasn’t that about $450 US or something?? Anyway, I was waiting for the Super Cheap, Not Stamped in Anything but Vinyl, Not Numbered and most DEFINITELY not Signed or Fingerprinted Vinyl copy for Regular Ole Folks edition. I seem to recall starting to fidget about whether or not we’d ever get one ’round about April or so…then I put it in the back of my mind, next to the area where I think about cooking dinner. Then all of the sudden I read the other day that yes, vinyl is coming soon!!
As for dinner, well…it’s coming soon as well. Just as soon as I start considering what I can make super fast before the husband gets home.
I can’t wait to get the vinyl. I don’t care that it’s not coming with all of the little extras, I just want a copy of the superb album I already have on CD. That will be enough for me, and maybe, just maybe, I’ll even allow my husband to open it and play it once or twice. Then I’ll stare at it for a while before I finally put it in it’s home, next to the rest of my collection.
Then of course, comes the subject of my 3 hour long conversation with Amanda this morning. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a real, honest-to-goodness plotting and scheming session. Truly, we haven’t had to – we’d planned the UK trip with nary a problem until we actually GOT there and had to deal with the reality of cancelled shows. We didn’t have to hide a thing from….certain family members who must remain nameless at this time, because he’d given his blessing extremely early and even without bloodshed! Today however, I found myself giggling and thinking about possibilities with excitement. I didn’t realize how much joy I get out of planning something I know I probably shouldn’t be doing!! It’s half the fun!
What are we planning, you ask? Oh. Oh I couldn’t possibly say at this juncture. All I can tell you is that if what I have in mind works, debauchery in the midwest will be imminent. 😉
With that, I must get dinner on the table. I have buttering-up to do!!
