so monday: spent on the phone. all day, literally nine to five ON THE PHONE. i was collecting opinions to see if we can convince some key people to bring “last DISPATCH” to chicago. how much would that rock? so i called everyone i could think of to get the ball rolling. one person is like ten steps ahead of me and is ready to pull togther radio sponsors and a beer tent. i’m like, easy there tiger. at this point, all is strictly theoretical. but i like how you think.
ended the day by meeting mandy at baker’s square for a slice of pie around 10:30. it’s an old tradition. we get pie to go and take it to lake michigan, snack on the beach. it’s amazing what a comfort traditions like those can really be.
tuesday. i’m searching frantically for a wedding present that i’ll probably have to get online. but it’s SO worth it. this present is the best present ever for weddings, and it’s probably going to be my standard wedding gift from now on. so i won’t reveal my secret here. it’s a gem. so i spent the morning looking for that, came home empty-handed. spent the afternoon wandering with my mom, she wants to buy me shoes but i just can’t bring myself to care. not about her desire to give me something, that’s wonderful! but my desire for shoes? there just isn’t any. i felt bad because i was a little frustrated, waiting for some of yesterday’s calls to be returned, and it kept popping up like little pockets of crankiness. i try not to be that person, but sometimes it gets the best of me. sorry, mom.
