Now, What Was I Saying?

  • We really need more van drivers. Out of our three drivers, one is on vacation for the next two weeks, and the other is on business travel four out of five days, at least. So, guess who gets to drive both ways?
  • I seem to have had more (mild) headaches than usual this week. My doctor has given me a referral to a Headache Clinic, with a relatively famous doctor who has an even more famous sister. Alas, (a) I can’t confirm the doctor or the clinic is a Blue Cross PPO member; and (b) because of the van and work, I probably can’t get in until the end of May anyway.
  • Adding to the headache, nsshere has been more whiney than usual this week. Parents, when dealing with your toddlers, just be thankful. They eventually turn into teenagers.
  • I did receive some interesting mail from Nashville. There are some interesting events when we’ll be there, although I don’t think we’ll be able to see Chicago, due to the reunion. We might be able to see Church Basement Ladies, which sounds potentially interesting. We will also hit the Let Freedom Sing celebration on the 4th.
  • We will be meeting shutterbug93 for breakfast tomorrow morning. Alas, we have no theatre this weekend. Our next show is Saturday 5/5, when ussens and ellipticcurve will be going to see Bush is Bad: The Musical.
  • That’s about it. I think this week has fried my brains. I hear they are quite tasty, with a side of fries.
  • And speaking of fried brains, I did want to mention some interesting passings this week. Of course, everyone by now has heard about the deaths of Jack Valenti, father of the movie rating system, and Mstislav Rostropovich, famous cellist and conductor. We also lost Bobby “Boris” Pickett, who did the mash (it was a graveyard smash); Warren Avis, the founder of Avis Rent-A-Car who always tried harder (as opposed to putting you in the driving seat); and Howard Larman, co-host with his wife Roz of the Folk Scene on KPFK, a seminal folk music radio show.

And with that, I think I’ll go lie down. I will remind folks of my Three-and-Three meme offer.
