As of this moment, I only have a little more than three days left as a full-timer at CAP21. Amazing. People keep asking me where I'm going and what my plans are and I keep giving vague answers like "I'm pursuing a number of options" and "somewhere... that's not... here". Truth is: I have no idea. Also truth: I'm psyched about it.
I mean, I do have plans to find something new, for sure. At this point though, I just want any job that doesn't make me want to hide in bathroom and bang my head against the stall door all day. If that something can also give me a salary and insurance, even better. I'm lucky enough to have some money to float on for awhile if I need to, though, so it wouldn't hurt to use this bit of free time to re-examine what I might want to do with my life. Like finally start that drums-and-tambourine band with Andrea:
me: aw yeah, fashion plates!
my friend sophie had a ton of those and i was so jealous
what were sweet secrets?
andrea: they were these little dolls that folded into like weird compact things
but the best part was all their furniture which folded out of accessories
so like, there was a brush that turned into a car
me: whoaaa weird
they have weirdo torsos
andrea: they have jeweled torsos
you should be so lucky
me: they're like girly transformers
also, i'm starting a band called hairdryer patio
andrea: oh my god, totally off topic, my sweet tooth will not quit
i want like, a tube of cinnamon rolls right now
also, hairdryer patio, yes
i'm on drums
me: ok fine
but i get to tambourine
and that's it - drums and tambourine
andrea: god we rule
me: we sure do
oh, and we'll have really high pitched vocals
like, fake opera
i'm not touring though
we can do one offs
i say we only tour when we need a vacation
and even then we'll play like one show and relax the rest of the time
we'll send out a bulletin, "just some meet us at the bar and we'll sing all high pitchy for you while you buy us g &t's"
Hairdryer Patio: keepin' it real. Brace yourself for some amazing merch.
(Oh, and by the way: wanting to eat a tube of cinnamon rolls is never off-topic and is in fact relevant to any conversation.)
