I hate being tired, yet not being able to fall asleep. blue-meanie Usually, I go on this site when that happens, hoping it will help, and usually... it doesn't. But it's still fun. Even though I'm So Tired. (See what I did there? a-hard-days-night-george-10)

Let me tell you a story about spiders.

First, let me tell you about an old set of encyclopedias someone gave me.  I found an apartment to rent for a very cheap price, with one stipulation, that the owner could use the main area to give piano lessons 3 times a week.  When she finally wanted to move back in (she had broken up with the man she thought she was going to marry), I had to find a new place to live.  During the time I lived there, she had left a few of her things there -- including this entire set of old encyclopedias, about 50 volumes. 

While packing, and while she was bringing her stuff back in, she offered to give me the whole set, as she didn't want them anymore. 

At my new apartment, I would pick up the odd volume (this was before Google for me) to read random stuff about history.  But soon I tired of the encyclopedia and they were just taking up space. 

In the meantime, I noticed that large spiders would appear out of nowhere, and they would just pause in the middle of the floor.  They were a type of spider, I guess, that instead of scattering off when you approach, they just froze in place, hoping you wouldn't notice.  Since I no longer wanted the encyclopedias, I took one volume, poised it above a spider that had paused on the floor, and just dropped it flat on top.  It was so effective, it didn't even leave any stain on the floor -- the smashed spider was completely stuck on the volume.  I would then take the volume in very gingerly fashion out to the dumpster.  Over the course of several weeks, I must have done this about 20 or 30 times -- that's how many spiders must have been lurking in that apartment.

I stayed in that apartment for several years after that time -- and I never saw another spider again!

I bought a record player yesterday..  and I am in FREAKING HEAVEN.  There really is nothing like listening to old music the way it was released  at the time.  I love the crackle of the record as it plays....  a-hard-days-night-john-6  I am on the cusp of a generation that still used them, they are the first way I listened to music when I was a kid.  My dad left me all of his records.  Some good ones I own are:  Jimi Hendrix-Are You Experienced and Electric Lady land, Then Rolling Stones-December's Children, More Hot Rocks, and Hot Rocks 1964-1971.   My Beatles collection so far consists of:  "The Beatles-Again, The White Album, and then the two compilations 1962-1966, and 1967-70.  I just bought "Let it Be... Naked" to celebrate.  Oh, and I also have RAM and Imagine, but I can't find Imagine right now..  it's somewhere in this place, but where..  paul-mccartney

 

I am considering just buying the vinyl box set when I get my tax return.  Anybody own it?  Any thoughts?  I know it's a better deal than buying them all singly, which I would do over time.  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

In 13 days, I'm going to see the Fab Faux. They're probably not as good as Rain, but they're still good. They're going to perform a mixed set, and then all of Abbey Road. I'm excited!!! :)

I've seen the Faux - you will love them. When I saw them, they got halfway through 'the medley' when suddenly they broke out with 'Tomorrow Never Knows'. It was incredible.

EDIT of my previous post - 18 March is only 8 days away, not 10. Pardon my Macca-like math skills.ahdn_paul_01
