Scheduling and gladiolas.

Sunday, March 25th, 2007

A sunny Sunday is  welcome indeed. It was sunny this morning, then DLJ made homemade waffles and I watched rain pour down. Now it’s sunny again with only a few puffy white clouds. I planted  a good 20 gladiolus bulbs, and seeded some containers to start some things indoors. Where to put them indoors, however, […]

Waiting to fly.

Portland airport. I’m on my way to Tucson for the giant To Bead True Blue show at the Manning House, where I will be selling beads and jewelry in the Redondo Pavilion. 6 days. Maybe I am crazy for doing the largest bead type of event in the US so early in my career. But […]

Giddy……..

I am back from the library with my copy of Nick Bantock’s new book. I thought for sure it would be totally mobbed by wait listers, but there were two copies not even out! So I got it today and I am thrilled. Big difference from my wait-listed spot for “Water for Elephants,” I am […]

Standing behind the merch area at Sonar, Baltimore, MD. Thomas is playing “The Flat Earth.” I have seen more than 50 Thomas Dolby concerts. Oh, that it were true for Duran Duran! I’m ready to go home. It’s been an intense tour, only a month long, but 27 days and 24 gigs is extremely difficult. […]

Leaving Palm Trees

Sunday, December 17th, 2006

We did it! 12 shows in 12 nights! Tonight we partay! It was a LOT of work for everyone. Tomorrow we have the day off and we will be in Columbia, S.C. Hotels! Laundry! No work! Then it’s on to Virginia, and five more shows, before I get to go home. I’m having a good […]

Humidity land.

Wednesday, December 13th, 2006

We have just arrived in Jacksonville, Florida. It’s humid. The club smells like ass, and there’s nothing going on yet in there. It has giant screens of badly created video of dancing girl shadows. Spare me. I’ve lost track of what day this is in terms of our 12 day stint. 7? 8? Sleeping well, […]

Almost normal.

Friday, December 8th, 2006

I’m sitting on a bed. In a heated room. In a loft. With a latop. It’s almost like real life. No bus, no venue. I’m waiting for UPS to show up so I can move some merch boxes from here, Houston, Texas, to Atlanta Georgia. The loft belongs to Bree and Johnny, my friends in […]

Texas.

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006

Awake in Austin. I saw a friend, Bernie, from my old Organic days last night. It was very sweet of her, considering she’s due ANY DAY NOW to come out for a coffee. She took me to a great little plays called Jo’s, I feel like I got a little true Austin flavor and a […]

Places I have never been #23

Monday, December 4th, 2006

Inside a truck wash. Our bus was really, really dirty after we made our way up to Aspen and Denver and back down to Texas. Sooty, snowy. Cakes of mud falling off the wheel wells, the trailer so dirty people started writing things on the side. So as we pulled out of Amarillo, Texas. I […]

Trooper

Thomas just took the stage at the Gothic. Last night was a tough one, performing with a voice shot through by a virus. If I hadn’t been  impressed by the man as a performer, as opposed to my friend, before….I certainly would be now. He didn’t cancel, performing instead with the inability to hit his […]
