There's a feeling that runs through your veins,
One that has no time, no space,
Taking you high
So that you can't deny it;
That's when you're in love...
Love wins out after all. Two weeks of being broken up (in more ways than one) convinced both Gina and me that we'd rather be together and deal with the difficulties of our particular relationship than be apart. And I'm happy again...
I got a postcard from my pretty baby yesterday, as a matter of fact. She's in Florida right now... Before she headed down there, she and I got together and had a few pieces of sushi to tide us over 'til we can go out for a proper dinner. We also had some Karamel Sutra ice cream from Ben & Jerry's, which is, well, orgasmic. Heh-heh... Just got off the phone with her, actually, and we're hoping to do sushi on Monday night. Woo-hoo!
While Gina's been doing a lot of traveling these last several weeks, I went back to Baltimore briefly for work; the staff at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center needed some more training, and I assisted Robert in givin' it to 'em. I also made a day trip to Philadelphia, for pleasure, not business. Had a real Philly cheese steak while I was there, too. Yummm...
OK, I guess there was a little personal business involved in that trip to Philadelphia; I plastered a number of my promotional stickers around town (Baltimore wasn't spared, either). As a matter of fact, I'm almost completely out of stickers now, though I've still got a bunch of buttons and a whole lotta pens. And the CD is finally comin'!
I have had to push back the release date by a week (damn my procrastination, anyway...), but Joy in the New will finally, finally be out on July 27th. There's a newly designed batch of stickers being printed, and I'm getting a number of 17" x 11" posters made up, too. If you're interested in any of this stuff, drop me a line.
Got sunburned a bit last Sunday... The weather was so nice out, I decided to drag Nena, my Danelectro guitar, out to the park. I've not been playing much lately, so since Saturday I've been making a concerted effort to play at least a little bit each day. Not only were my fingers sore after playing for 90 minutes or so at the park, but I noticed later in the day that my limbs, particularly on my right side, were decidedly pinker than normal. Oops... Should've put on some sunscreen, but I guess I just wasn't expecting the sun to be so strong and myself to be exposed to it for so long. Oh, well.
Ah, just a few more weeks until my album is completed and in my hands. I feel
more relaxed now than I have in recent weeks, but I won't be able to truly breathe a sigh of
relief until I see it, and hand Gina the first one out of the box. Have you ordered yours yet?
