Hitchhiker's and other stuff

I ended up going to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I enjoyed it; an odd thing I noticed about my reaction to it is that the one thing that consistently made me laugh was the doors. Did other people react similarly or am I just a freak?

Got a show tomorrow (that is Saturday the 21st) in East Greenwich at Main Street Music (165 Main Street). We'll play for an hour starting at 11 am, then (theoretically) starting at noon we'll be leading a jam. It will all be acoustic (there will be no soundboard at all), so it will be interesting to see how it goes. It will also be the first time I've lugged my piano down the stairs from my apartment (and back up again after the show), which should be something.

One of the folks in the dance band (Ed the percussionist) is going to become a father pretty soon, so I've been thinking about baby-related knitting projects ... I'm well on my way to finishing a teddy bear (I expect I'll finish it, or mostly finish it, this weekend) and I think maybe a baby blanket will be next. (kerri9494 provided some advice on what might be most useful, and I'm also going to consult my sister and her husband.) We'll see how it goes.

I should go to bed so I can be (relatively) fresh for tomorrow's show, but I think I'll stay up fifteen more minutes for On The Media to complete. I should make a point to have some sort of breakfast in the morning so I won't be playing on an empty stomach.

Maybe I'll do some post-gig walking around in East Greenwich since I'm not down there too often ...

For once there's no band practice on Sunday, so I will have the day to myself. Some of this will be spent maintaining web sites, but I also hope to do some music stuff, such as working on a recording of some lyrics recently written by plorkwort. (Practice has been moved to Monday this week.)
