Weekly Planner

Monday: Awake at reasonable hour. Plow through backlog of undone assignments, lay off a couple others, try to avoid germs. Have dinner with Blood. Play cards until reasonable hour. Note: If playing cards doesn’t net profit, avoid fantasizing about a Powerball win until 5am.

Tuesday: Sleep a little late, but get up in time to complete daily work and run some errands. Stalk tax preparer. Cook dinner for the family. Re-string guitar, charge iPod, charge headphones. Watch Democratic primary returns and hope for the best. Note: If things look bad by 9pm, turn off television and fantasize about Powerball win.

Wednesday: Awake earlier than desired and curse about the last-minute work the client has found that must be completed before the weekend. Try to avoid firing off nasty e-mail about how said projects could have been requested three weeks earlier. Finish work by lunch time, drive to Charlotte with G-Rob. Quickly learn how to drive a recreational vehicle. Return to G-Vegas and buy supplies for epic journey. Greet parents who have arrived to watch the boy while wife and I embark on said journey. Go to dinner with friends. Get to sleep at a reasonable hour. Damn it, forgot to buy Powerball tickets! Return to morning and add “Buy Powerball tickets.” Win Powerball. If not, go to sleep.

Thursday: Wake up at an unreasonable hour and drive RV to South Florida. Meet friends at Big Cypress. Commence with not sleeping. Watch more live music than I’ve seen in four years combined. Pretend to be member of working press. Lament not winning Powerball. Wear 1970s tuxedo, Elvis sunglasses, and a bowler hat. Answer only to “Otis.”

Friday-Sunday: Repeat.

Monday: Regret.

    Hey Brad-Great line up. Most of these bands have rolled through Columbia. I highly recommend The Felice Brother, Josh Ritter, Dr. Dog, and Blitzen Trapper as a few band you might not have heard of and would/should like.
