Too long since last post...

... but I've been busy.

The day job had me gone to Vegas for four days for a user group meeting and right now I'm at my nephew's wedding in Chicago. Tomorrow morning I set up a store for This, Not This! merchandise on the band website to take pre-orders for the new EP and attend the wedding and the reception in the afternoon/evening. Next morning I get up and drive to Decatur, visit my mom, drive back to Bloomington, and have dinner with a friend. Next morning, back to Chicago, fly home, and listen to the masters for the EP. The next day, I go to work for a half day, wrestling with a product management organization that thinks you can fit ten pounds of work into five pounds of time, and spend the second half going through a dry run of a corporate gig being played the next morning that has the band being streamed live in front of about 3000 people in the US and Western Europe and recorded for another 1500 or so in other parts of the world (which is why we need to have the web store set up). Wednesday morning I play the gig, and Wednesday afternoon, it's back to the day job and things should slow down again. Somewhere along the line, I need to finish the graphic layout for the jewel case insert and jacket for the EP. The fun never seems to stop.

I've recovered about 60% of the vision in my left eye, but I'd really like all of it back. That will be examined Thursday morning.
