is it too early to vacuum?

I woke up early (5:00) this morning. And when I say woke up, I mean that I smashed on the alarm snooze button a several times before I dragged my ass out of bed.

I have articles that are due, um today. Three for NUVO (150+300+500 words) and the Broad Ripple Gazette column (1000-ish).

I've really slacked off so far this year. The last four evenings I've done nothing but read, which is good for the soul. But not so much for the deadlines.

One of the NUVO articles (500) is about AVS's old band. They are playing a 'reunion' show next week.
It is weird to be writing about a band that I named.

AVS and I had a nice information gathering E-mail exchange. I have purposely not had any contact with him since June. Which was hard for me, this has been the longest we have not talked in the 10 years that I have known him. I know that we both still care about each other, but I don't think it is either of our intentions that I wind up crying next to a dumpster behind a bar as he's pulling out of town. This will be interesting.

I'm off to waste some more time before work.
Have a lovely day.

hey- thanks for the note! Can't believe you write about BroadRipple. I miss the Stone Mug and the Irish Pub, whose name I forgot long ago. Thanks for dropping by - and I'll check back to read some more!

Three articles to write and so you're blogging. You really ARE my kind of girl.
The 'dumpster' line had me chuckling.

My "snooze" button takes a beating, too :p Must be nice to be a morning person... Man, lot's of articles to write! I hope you got them done and were happy.

How'd you get to name a band? That's too cool.
