Red Red Wine

Well, I got everything accomplished off of yesterday's list (I realized that I used the word 'little' in the list 3 times!) except that the recording didn't really work right because I'm having problems with some of my cables. And I was going to call Melissa from work but then noticed that her schedule doesn't change until next week. So I didn't need to call her. But I got all the other stuff done and went to the gym and got the oil changed in my car. And took a nap. What more can one do in a day?

Tonight the Jeanners and I watched one of our Netflix movies, Bringing Up Baby, with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn. It wasn't that great. Luckily, we had a big bottle of red wine that we had opened last night for dinner that we didn't want to go bad. So we drank red wine throughout the movie, which made the whole situation a lot better. Then, after the movie Jeannie checked her e-mail and had an e-mail from the Schlueteremetz' proposing a fake-Thanksgiving sometime in March. So we got really excited and semi-drunk dialed the Schluetermetz'. Sorry Schluetermetz'!

So I'm still drinking the red wine in an attempt to finish off the bottle. The Jeanners and I are currently in preparations to go for a walk. There is little in life that is better than taking a walk in chilly air after a bottle of red wine. With your bestest ladyfriend. Seriously.

Tomorrow on the day off:

1. To the gym!
2. To Guitar Center to buy some new cables with my 'secret Santa' $25 Guitar Center gift card.
3. Recording.

Tonight I got an e-mail from J. Scheuer, which is always nice. It sounds like he and his lady are doing well, married and living just north of San Francisco. Which is a pretty lovely place to be living, indeed.

Mmmm. This wine is good. Typing on a computer after red wine reminds me of college. Ha ha. College seems like a long time ago. I don't miss it, but I sure do like it when I get to see the people I used to hang out with. But I wouldn't trade my life now to go back. Ahh, I'm getting pretty drunk and nostalgic. For some reason, I enjoy having to concentrate really hard to get the keystrokes right.

Right now I'm on a semi-Kerouac kick. I picked up a book that I have, The Rolling Stone Book of the Beats. which is basically a collection of articles written about Beat authors (a good deal considering it's a decent read [for Beat fans] and was only $4.98 [a bargain book]}, and I've been re-reading the articles on Kerouac, and it makes me want to reread something of Kerouac's. Which will probably be Vanity of Duluoz, which I don't own but will probably end up buying in order to reread.

Tom Waits' 'The Piano Has Been Drinking' just came up randomly on the ol' mp3 player. Fitting. A great song. If you've never heard it, download it tomorrow.

And the song just changed to Ray Lamontange's (it's funny to hear customers come into the B&N and try to pronounce his name) 'Three More Days,' which is a good song but the Jeanners says it's way overplayed on Towson University's radio station.

Alright, it's time to go for a walk!
