I was tired because I went to the Mint last night to work on the same story and it was a total zoo because of some parties and the Bucking Idol contest. The winner gets to sing at the Gay Rodeo in the fall. I wasn't dressed up or in great voice, but I wanted to sing and the contest was going to take up most of the night so I signed up.
A singer named Jody Miller did a parody of "King Of The Road" called "Queen Of The House" so I sang that. (And I didn't even realize it played into my House obsession until later.) Out of a field of 11, I made the top 5, but there was no way I was going to win because it's always some Diva doing "Broken Wing" and karaokegal ain't no Diva.
I got most of the writing done (except the smutty bit) and went home with a very nice GSGRA (Golden State Gay Rodeo Association) portfolio for participating, but then I was all wired and couldn't sleep and stayed up too late so that I didn't want to wake up in the morning.
But thanks to the wonderfulness that is Bay Area Rapid Transit, I managed to pull myself together and get out the door by about 8:30AM and still made it into the office on time.
Not like it really matters.
Today's freebie is a Balance "Bare" Nutrition Energy Bar-Sweet & Salty Yogurt Nut. I can't actually bring myself to eat it. I'm going down for some hot chocolate and an almond croissant.
