Man, I only get to do this once a year, and that is a heck of a lot more often than I ever in my life thought I would get to do this.
I wore a plaid flannel shirt to the fancy Juno Welcome Reception!! "Casual Elegant?" Ooookay! Here I am, sashaying down the corridor of a nice hotel. Yup, I did my best sashay, the best I could having never had any formal sashay lessons. That wasn't part of my book learnin'. Haha.
I like this picture because it looks like I have long legs, and I don't really have long legs at all. I don't care if it's blurry!
Remember I said I planned to wear my plaid shirt tied at the front like Daisy Duke? I tolja. Here's the proof! Kind of a funny angle but I didn't have "angles" lessons either in my youth!
Party pictures. It was too loud to mingle. Nice venue, but too loud, and because this is a business trip, we're here to schmooze. Or in my case, talk about my kids to anybody who will listen!
Look, here's us! Jethro is the most reliable dude on earth. You can always count on him for the same honest smile. Me? Whoooooo teeth time!
(You know, it's getting increasingly easy to show our faces on the intermittent net. I hardly care anymore. Here we are! We don't get recognized in airports so it's all good...!)
We got a very special tour of a very special place, because we know people and we've got an IN.
This place is incredible. Pianos, keyboards, harpsichords, from all over and all different eras.
Oh look, it's a recording engineer's living room! Kidding. Our speakers are tiny in real life. But this was fun!
Now I must go- holy smokes, the cocktail hour (schmooz) before the big BLACK TIE DINNER starts in half an hour and my hair is still wet! It'll take me at least that long to get into my dress and wrangle my hair into some kind of bizarre Helena Bonham Carter configuration!
Catch ya later!
ps I haven't popped a little anti-depressant since Wednesday evening and I feel GREAT! This is the best I've felt in months. I slept for ten hours last night. Ah feel goooood! (And no, I haven't been drinking!)
