That’s Right! Give Me MY MONEY

My stimulus package check was direct deposited today.  What to do?  What to do?

I think that if I spend it at all, I’m going to spend it in a local business.   I’m going to boost the economy of my town, Oakland, instead of just making the rich bastards richer and what not.

That’s if I spend it.  It could go straight into the “I-Work-For-A-Giant-Corporation-Who-Could-Lay-Me-Off-At-Any-Moment” Fund.

To Be Continued . . .

Big Weekend

The fun starts tomorrow evening, with friends from Chicago, Deal’s Gone Bad, opening for  The Slackers of New York City at Slim’s in The City.   I have been looking forward to this show for weeks.  Months even.  It’s always good to see friends, and when those friends are also great musicians and performers, it’s like a double whammy.

Saturday I have another band rehearsal.  The last one was a lot of fun, so I’m looking forward to this next one.  We might have a singer by then.

Saturday evening my mom is getting in.  She’s going to be staying with me for over  a week at The Rock.   Hopefully we won’t be giving each other black eyes, sharing such close quarters in my studio apartment.

Sunday, Mother’s Day, Mom wants to go to the Winchester Mystery House.   I think Creeper is going to join us, as he’s lived in the San Jose area most of his life, and still has never been.

Monday I am taking a personal day from work, so I can spend some more time with Mom.  Three day weekends are the best.  Every weekend should be a three-dayer.

What are your plans for the weekend?
