All work and no play

This week was a killer. I gotta tell you. I survived though.

We had five proposals going on at the same time. That’s a lot, folks. Every manager was scurrying around as if they had matches stuck up their asses. It was as revolting as it was humorous. And frustrating.

I think I put in about 17 hours of overtime this week. That, too, is a lot. At least I get paid for it!!

In addition, I had three big projects that I have been working on at home that had to get to the next stage. So when I got home from work, I went right back to the computer and continued to work. Of course, those projects are all pro bono (no pay), but they still had to get done.

So you can see why I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been a busy boy!!

On Friday I had lunch with a new chorus boy. Very cute, very nice, but very much on the rebound after an awful breakup. So, while we had a lot in common and I’d melt into a pool of goo if he asked me to date him, I am not expecting any miracles. Friends it is. I can deal with that.

Saturday I auditioned for a solo in the CGMC show, “In The Mood.” Not sure how that will go, but I think I did pretty good.

I’m really excited about this show. It’s all great music from the 30’s thru the early 50’s in the style of such legends as Glenn Miller, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. My kinda stuff. Patrick Sinozich, our director, has arranged all the pieces, and they are, as always, amazing. Add in lots of “Choralography” and tons of dancing, and it’s going to be a heck of a show. I’m trying to get my mom, sister and brother in law (I have never called him that before) to see the show. I hope they can make it.

OH and if you should happen to visit CGMC’s website, they now have an online store where you can order both of our CD’s! Just click on the banner and it’ll bring you right to it. (Hint… I have solos on BOTH of them! Our new CD, “I Will Be Loved Tonight,” is perfect for Valentine’s Day (whether you love it or hate it), So buy copies… many copies!! πŸ˜‰

While you’re at it with the online ordering, if you are a big fan of nuts (and who isn’t?), you need to check this site out. Pua, The High Priestess herself, was promoting her newly found sister Lokelani’s Kanake Nuts on her blog the other day, so I decided to try some. Tres YUMMY! So stop by and order a bag for yourself. You’ll be glad you did. Mahalo. πŸ™‚
