Take Me In And Dry The Rain

Well, hello everyone, you dear dear bloggers.
My band, the Marquee...has taken a turn for the worse.
My drummer phoned me tonight letting me know he thought we should break up. I suggested that getting back together in a few months and seeing if our vibe has changed would be a better idea. He believes the band is too serious now and that we shouldn't have to be like this. I just said it was upsetting but if it was how he felt....then I cannot help that. He was fed up with our guitarist. I, personally, adore him, even if he is a little unorganised/daft sometimes.
I called our guitarist, just to make sure he was alright. Officially we're on a "break" thought, I guess. It is a sad thing. we've been together since the first of canary 2006, almost two years really. But All Things Must Pass.
I can at least start performing at open mic and Battle Of The Bands solo, that will be fun.

Anyway, enough with the sad news....I've been tagged.
I was tagged once before, and if I remember correctly, you are suppose to list eight things about yourself that not everyone might know? Well, that's what I'll TRY to do.....I don't know if I have much.


1: I am absolutely obsessed with Solitaire. I've always loved playing it on my iPod, but who doesn't? Now I play it on my Mac, which meant I had to download it, since they don't have what other computers have (the only downside I would say...). And it is nice to play it with real cards every once in awhile. But I literally see the game of Solitaire in my head when I close my eyes to go to sleep now.

2: I am becoming increasingly interested in film. I am going to Film Club starting tomorrow at school! I'm very excited. I have this fantasy of a Killer Three. Making one killer film, writing one killer book, and releasing one killer album. Who knows how that'll work out...

3: I love Michigan Michigan Michigan Michigan Michigan. Most importantly Fountain Point in Leland. Bliss.

4&5: These sort of go hand in hand, I suppose. or at least I can make that way. I love knitting scarves and I love Harry Potter (so so much). I decided to start a project where I knit the House colours of Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin! And then depending on my mood I would switch the scarf I was wearing. And then I though, "What about Dumbledore? He's my hero. He's one of my idols, he needs a scarf in his name." I decided to make a silver scarf! Just for him! But I haven't looked for yarn yet, I am a little nervous that I won't find any. I guess white would work (in a very boring way, not much of a tribute, I would say)

6: Alright, I love t.v. shows. I really do. I hadn't watched that much television this summer, but I'm going crazy lately. Seinfeld is number one right now, I'd love writing a show a little like this, maybe a little more obscure. Ninties sitcoms are really prime. But I also love the Office, and most recently Weeds.

7: I'm getting very much into fashion. When I was younger I used to be anti-fashion in my own little way. But I really do like looking at pictures and thinking about it. I usually don't pursue it that much though, what a shame. But it's still a fun hobby.

8: I love getting pedicures. I'm not really diva-ish at all, all I really like is leg/foot massages.

Well, I just learned a lot more about myself, ha. I am almost certain no one will read this entire post. If you do, then you might think I'm insane or strange. I am sorry.

I feel like every one around me has already been tagged, and I don't know many people...I must get reacquainted with them. So whoever feels like being tagged, if they haven't yet, can be tagged. Is that fair??
Now it's time to go to sleep.
Good night.

The Kids Are Alright is on loop at the moment.

Hi Claire,

Good job with the tag.

If you can, think of being on a break from your band as good solo time, as you write, you can perform solo now and enjoy that for a time.

I'm glad you're back blogging.
Life is very busy but we do crave these connections to make our lives even more full.

Happy to see you came to my blog too. Yup, AJ was on MTV. Amazing, huh?

Signed on and found Mitch had been exploring your Blog :) Shocked to see that your band broke up but LOVE the idea of a solo Claire! Ask your Mom about Gin Rummy. We were obsessed by it in our day. And what's this Diva girl--fashion and pedicures! Didn't see that coming. TV: check out Damages with Glenn Close. Remember, you've also got to live in your other favorite place, San Diego :)

Um, I read the entire post, but did not get the impression of insanity. :-) Great entries, all of them. One thing I wish is that we'd had a film club at my school, so you're damn lucky there. Oh, and Solitaire is damned annoying. Horribly addictive!

Sorry to hear about your band, but hope it will only open roads to new exciting things.
