10:13 pm - No caffeine and no... uh... no caffeine makes Colin a dull boy.
Just got back from singing in Cambridge with offBeat. We sang to our regulars and a few others. Ellen and my parents were all there. Nothing too special, but it went well. We have the next couple of weeks off which means that we'll be working up Christmas songs. Ellen thinks we should sing Down With the Sickness, and I don't necessarily disagree, but she's pushing for the lounge version by Richard Cheese, and I'm a purist who would rather do it in the style of Disturbed. If we could agree on one version, I might be less in favor of singing it.

Anyway, that was my big excitement for the day. Today was just awful at work -- caffeine irritates the vocal cords and my throat was already sore, so I didn't have any coffee at all. As a result, I dragged my feet all day and caught my second wind around 6:30. It's finally beginning to wind down, and I'm going to help it by watching the Gus Van Sant's 1998 remake of Psycho. I haven't seen it before, and I don't recall hearing anything good about it when it was new. The fact that the DVD case is completely unmarred by excerpts of reviews is somewhat ominous. I can't really figure out what Van Sant was trying to do by making a shot-for-shot remake. I'm mostly curious to hear Danny Elfman's take on Bernard Herrmann's score.

No caffeine for Colin makes Colin a dull boy and that makes me sad. I'm sorry I couldn't go see you guys tonight but I had to work until about 9:30 and then that would have just been pointless. Hrm.

Yeah, we were done by 9:00. We'll be performing a little closer to home in December (Edgewood on the 8th, Stella's Speakeasy in Stoughton on the 9th), so you might be better off coming to one of those performances. I'll post the details of those performances sooner or later.

I really wish I had been able to join you rather than going to my anniversary banquet.

Somehow I managed not to realize that the comment yesterday was from you. How'd the banquet go? You didn't miss anything spectacular, but it's too bad that your work schedule pretty much prevents you from being able to attend our regular performances. We're working on getting other gigs, so hopefully we'll find something on a day when you're available.

You don't have to tell me how it went. I left that comment before I saw that you'd posted about it.

I would have come but I was hanging out with hot chicks all night so I was busy.

's okay. So are you going to spill the sordid details, or am I going to have to beat (by which I mean beg) them out of you?

Meh. S'okay. Like I told Renee, there will be more opportunities closer to home next month.
