Roller Coaster Week

If you're expecting this post to include the Idiot of the Week Awards, I will sadly disappoint you. There had been so many things going on this last week, that the Awards were not near the top of my priority list. Needless to say, it was a roller coaster week.

It looked something like this:

And went something like this:
  • Ups! - asked to play piano accompaniment for a baptism in October.
  • Downs - didn't hear back about the baptism during the week. Getting concerned.
  • Downs (how low can you go?) - work situations, and their affect on my projects.
  • Ups! & Downs - running interference before the Elegantly Wasted gig last Friday night. (Everything went great, it was just time consuming.)
  • Ups! - Bought Tribe tickets for the last home game of the year - could they clinch then?
  • Downs - Saturday's Running in Circles gig canceled; the bar double-booked.
  • Ups! - baptism accompaniment is on! I will learn "Mother's Prayer" by Celine Dion.
  • Super Ups! - The Elegantly Wasted concert on Friday night! (separate post on the show coming soon, links to many of their songs here.)
  • Triple Super Ups!!! - Brother proposed to his girlfriend at the show, and she said yes!!!
  • Ups! - Relaxed on Saturday; watched "Back to the Future" with the family.
  • Ups! - Watched "Oh, Brother, Where Are Thou?" with Marie.
  • Downs - Browns defense. Bummer.
  • Super Ups!!! - We were at Jacobs Field to watch the Tribe clinch the Central Division Championship! It was awesome.
It was a whirlwind weekend. The gig was great, and I got to see many people I had not seen in years. All the bands did really well, and baby bro's girlfriend had no idea what was happening, when even her sister, best friends, and everyone else on planet earth knew. :-) The Tribe game was the clincher (sorry, had to say it).

BTW...for my New York readers, Elegantly Wasted is coming to Brooklyn, NY tomorrow night! They'll be at The Trash Bar:

That's funny. That's exactly what I thought when I read it!

btw, I think that "Back to the Future" and "Oh, Brother, Where Are Thou?" are two great movies. I love watching "Back to the Future" with my boys (I have seen it 'a million' times and have the lines almost memorized). On the other hand, everyone I talk to thinks I am insane when I say I 'love' "Oh, Brother.." and think that it is hilarious.
