Waking up after noon.
Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, White Peaches, Chia Seeds, and Kefir. Guayusa Tea.
Picking up my RD-700 keyboard from the shop. The guy at KBD Systems wasn't able to repair everything but it's in playable condition.
Teaching a lesson in Kempsville.
Grilled PB&J. Olive Oil Potato Chips. Figs. Honey Green Tea.
Watching The Running Man (1987).
Working on DEJA songs at the music space.
At South Beach Grill for my debut DEJA gig as keyboardist. I'm nervous and excited, but mostly nervous. All these songs and this band is not my cup of tea but I took it on like a beast and worked hard at learning as many songs as I could. Led Zeppelin, Rush, Styx, Yes, Pink Floyd, The Police, etc. Progressive is an under statement for this band. They choose the most difficult numbers to perform. Besides Eric, these are older guys who have been rocking out since the 70's. They welcome me into the band and cut me some slack. The only songs I feel like I get washed up on is "Over the Hills" where I'm playing acoustic guitar.
In between sets enjoying really salty Crab Cakes with Broccoli for dinner along with a couple of Amstel Lights. Ana shows up after she gets off work just in time for the second set.
Settling down with Ana.
Sleep 4 a.m.
