We went to Santa Fe. I spent most of the trip working on code for the thing. We got back, I showed off the (sort-of-working) thing, people were impressed, I got a cold. Then I spent the next two days on the couch feeling like my head was being crushed from the inside out.
But now I’m finally squeezing out the backside of this ick and I can think about doing something other than blowing my nose or writing code or playing !@(*ing Skyward Sword. My promise was a song a day so I’ve got about a week’s backlog now—I won’t catch up on that by the end of the month, but I’ll try not to fall farther behind. And I’ll file for an extension.
I got home tonight, tooled around on the uke, put together some chords in a mildly amusing arrangement and tacked some mostly meaningless words onto it. I could have recorded it, checked off another day… But it wasn’t covering any new ground and, yeah, I’m getting bored with it. So I have to assume you’re bored too. If you’re still there.
So the project’s on hold—for the weekend, anyway. If I can’t find a new goal by then I’ll go back to grinding out I mean lovingly crafting little cheesy songs every day through the end of the month. But if I do… well, we’ll just see what happens.
Okay, no, I’m not going away completely… I had so much fun doing this (yes, even the one with the awful cold) I want to keep it up, though probably not every day. I’ll aim for one a week. I’ll also look for words from other places, since @Horse_ebooks has been, like, totally lame ever since it got hacked. (That’s a joke. But I should expand my horizons so I’m not totally lost when @Horse_ebooks gets a movie deal and becomes unbearable.)
I did have a request, frighteningly enough, for the songs in MP3 format. I’ll get that up tomorrow.
So, thank you for joining me on this crazy adventure! I had a great time, I learned a lot, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
For three weeks I’ve battled the clock and the calendar, and now, at last, time has beaten me. We finished the Road Trip portion of our journey today (though I do have one last cemetery to visit, down south of San Antonio) and here at the end of the day, for the first time since I started this other journey, I don’t have a song for you. I’m on family time now. I want to say I’ll make up today’s absence tomorrow and even get back ahead, but I just don’t know what will happen. I’ll let you know when I get there…
