Well, it's not Monday, but for some reason it's felt like it all day. I don't know why.

I got up at my usual time this morning, looked out the window and saw that it really wasn't as snowy as promised. I considered going to work even though I was approved for today off. I fired up the computer to check out the latest weather report and the call for afternoon icing was still there, so I decided to stay home. The weather, while not great, turned out to be not nearly as bad as they predicted. I could have gone in and saved a day, but fuck it. I sat around like a bump on a log today and I have to tell you, it felt great. I did absolutely (almost) nothing today. I did throw in three loads of laundry (because someone asshole I happen to live with finally unpacked his luggage from his trip to Kentucky three weeks ago, even though I asked him to do this the weekend he got home.....)

When Ken got out of work tonight, we needed to go pick up his car from the shop. Neither of us had eaten much of anything today, so we decided to go out to dinner. I was hungry and I really overdid it. I ate way too much. Started with a salad, cup of seafood chowder and some cole slaw. Oh, and a huge ass piece of bread. Then my entree, which was seafood stuffed salmon and a sweet potato. My stomach feels rock hard now. I hate that I shoveled the food in. I fear I haven't quite banished all of my old ways because they seem to pop up every now and again. I'm going to promise myself now to get back on the wagon tomorrow and not freak out if I bounce up a couple pounds this week.

Tomorrow is going to be interesting. I have a whole bunch of shit on my desk and I'm sure there was more piled up today. I'm not complaining, I'm just not sure where to begin. I hope to get a couple hours extra in tomorrow, too. And when I get home, I should have a nice, shiny new box of comics waiting for me. It's been three weeks since my last delivery. I'm getting very excited!

So wait, since Freddy is (one of) my gay dad, and you were meant to be, would that make you my gay step-dad?

but anyway, Walt. The difference between you now and you then is you know that having a day of "food shoveling" doesn't mean you fail and you continue with the shoveling. I think it's a good fear to have, it keeps you on the wagon so to speak.

Did that make sense? The coffee hasn't kicked in.

Hi Walter - thanks for your comment, and I wish you an amazing 2009!

As usual, I'm kind of a slowpoke sometimes when it comes to responding:/ I must remind myself to stop by your blog more often, and I'm definitely gonna check out some your recommended albums from 2008 since there was quite a few there I hadn't even heard of :)(Yeah, I know - lazy artist, blah, blah :p)

I hope everything is great with you Walter, and it's nice to keep in touch. As for a new album, yeah I really, really hope it will come in 2009. I've continued to write and record new music in the last year, and I will continue to do so at the start of this year as well. It's not that I am not happy with the stuff recorded so far(I have over an album's worth of songs recorded already) - it's just that I feel I'm moving back and forth between different sounds,and it seems every recording session I move slightly in new direction and discover new things/elements. I guess I will have sit on roughly 25-30 recorded songs before I can start to decide on what's going to be on the album. In any way, I will make sure we send a signed album from the first print once it's done ---> that's a promise, hehe.

I managed to get a new recording session done right before Christmas, so if u want to check it out you can head over to my Myspace-profile to have a listen and let me know what you think of it - it's called "When You Laid Eyes On Me".

Hmm, I just realized I tend to write "better blogs" when I actually reply to someone, instead of the 4-liners I have on my own site...Oh well...

Have a nice weekend Walter!
