"We're gettin' the band back together.."

... we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it.
Seriously, the band I'm in had our first practice in two months last night. It wasn't bad. (But it wasn't really good, either. Among other things, I invented some new consonants.)

Our lead guitar quit a few months ago, so we've been learning to play with a lead bass instead. Plus with only one guitar, the songs have been changed around quite a bit. We're all learning, figuring it out. But... it's still fun! I haven't started taping our practices again yet, but maybe I'll post an mp3 of a song or so when I do.

For the curious, this picture is approximately what we looked like before we lost Joe (from left: Wade, Joe, me, Karen). I think we need to work on a slicker look :-) (Also, while I'm at it, I could lose some weight, and also maybe not have a mysterious flash reflect off the middle of my thighs — hee hee.)

On the Secret Yarnination front, I actually knit during band practice. (It's easier to do this when you're the vocalist than, say, the guitar player ;-) .) I have 31 rows left, and am on track to finish tonight. Whoop!

You don't need to lose weight, but I DO need to clean my lens. Sorry for adding a spot between your legs LOL.
