dreary saturdays and gas prices

I woke up at 9:30am today. And, I was slow to get started… by the time my wife and I headed out the door to do errands, it was already 12:30pm. When we got back it was already 4:30pm. It’s been rather cold and dreary here in San Diego. So far, we’ve stayed in and watched some movies… “Mrs. Henderson Presents…” and “Pride & Prejudice” (again).

It’s one of those days where I’m typing this and looking out the window and it’s already dark outside. And I’m wondering where the day had gone. At least I’m taking it easy.

No gigs this weekend because I’ve made a decision not to perform gigs for such a low amount. Now that gas is $3.00 plus per gallon, I really can’t take any work for less than what I deserve. It’s ridiculous. I’ve been performing there for 6 years and no raise! That’s terrible. So, I’m looking for better paying gigs… and not driving the car as much…

    6 years and no raise? That blows. I hope you get better paying gigs in the future. You deserve that at least.

    And I am so glad I don’t have a car… to worry about those nasty gas prices and whatnot. Then again it’s dangerous driving in Korea…

    Hi Tara! It’s just this “one place” which i shan’t mention… but, other bands i perform with have raised their pay to me.
    it’s necessary because of inflation.
