I found myself at a loss of what to say today. Mostly because I’ve spent my day and will continue to spend my day rushing around in order to complete everything that must be done today. Yours truly decided to take a spontaneous trip this week to see a band since my last travel plans to see a band were thwarted when said band broke up. I’m headed off to New York to see The Silent Comedy boys rock The Bowery Ballroom among other locales. I had also planned on having a new phone during the trip but alas, it won’t be here till tomorrow when I leave. In the meantime, I have to go out to the horses, clean house, and pack.
