Sit beside the breakfast table, think about your troubles....
 
 
The office is deserted except for me so I’ve got 40 minutes to try to write something interesting. I’m sitting here listening to my Mutual Admiration Society CD I finally got in the mail yesterday. Good things come to those who wait. I won’t bore you with the differences in the songs from this recording back several years ago, to tour today but they’re pretty big. And for the record, it’s now under a month till the Nickel Creek concert in Ohio. I know that everyone has been just as concerned about that as I have.
 
I really hate it when someone calls to ask you for something and they proceed to act all conversational as if I don’t know the ulterior motive for the phone call. I’d much rather we just skip the niceties, and go right to what they’re asking for. Don’t try to placate me or waste time pretending that you’re interested in what I have to say. Don’t try to think of some far-fetched excuse to call when in actuality you just didn’t want to admit to the question right away that what you want is not in the least to talk to me. I had one of those conversations this week. It bugged me b/c I don’t think he had a clue that I saw right through the reason for the call. Or maybe he just didn’t care. Either way, next time I’m not going to be nice. Oh who am I kidding?
 
So with this new job I have to walk down to the bank every day. It’s about 5 blocks or so and is a really nice walk b/c it’s to the circle which always has something going on. I’ve realized something about bankers. Maybe I should chat with Kev about it. Why is it that they feel the need to stamp your deposit slips as if it takes 50 lbs of pressure to get the stamp pad to work. Are your stamp pads that weak? And if they are, you’re a bank for the love, buy yourself a new one. They’ve just so harsh and deliberate with it as if to say- I am the strong stamping bank man out to take your money. Or at least that’s what I think of when I see my banker. Yeah, I should definitely ask Kevin about that.
 
I’ve been thinking I need some new books. So any suggestions my dear reader(s) would like to offer would be greatly appreciated and strongly considered. Even if I don’t know you, those would probably intrigue me even more. My next book to read is Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. I need to get going on it. I’m excited to see how different it is from the musical. Speaking of the musical, it’s going to be in Chicago next May-June. Can we say happy birthday to me? :) 
 
Ok, I know that I haven’t really written much of anything important lately. I’ll try to find a computer next time I’m feeling a little more pensive than I have as of late. My apologies.

my dear lizzie i love hearing your thoughts even if they're not, as you say, pensive. it's great to know what's going on in your life. i've wondered the same thing about bankers, and i laughed out loud when i read that b/c it's so true.

you looking for fiction or non-fiction?
