Today is the first workday that I didn't take a nap after coming home from my half-day at work. I've been working only mornings at my job, but it's been full duty for a little while now. At first, I came home exhausted and so took a nap until about 5 or 6pm. Lately, the naps have been only about an hour or so long. Today: no nap at all. It's 10pm and I'm feeling pretty good. But as I sit here at my computer (for the first time today), I feel that I am indeed pretty tired. (Don't worry, I'll be going to bed soon!) This past weekend I was in the studio as a producer with Kenny Lee and the Sundowners, a really cool blues outfit from Portland. I didn't take naps on Saturday or Sunday, either. I probably would've been able to not nap after work on Monday, but Jai and I went to Faerieworlds and saw none other than Donovan live on stage. We were about two people back from the stage, so we saw him up close. He had great energy and seemed generally glad to be performing his songs for us, even if the pick-up band was missing cues left and right. It looked like they were all having immense fun which made the show a lot of fun.
In other news, I have an MRI coming up that will [hopefully] sound the all clear. That happens in about a week. I'm not sure when the results will be known to me, but as soon as I find out, I'll post about it. Let's all hope!
It's me, Kevin, but with a brain tumor. Disclaimer: I have a very dry and twisted sense of humor. This is a scary situation. The jokes ("tumor humor") could be a little dark from time to time. I intend to keep this rather interesting for you, but if I get a "how could you SAY that?!?" response from you, know it's just, well, I hesitate to use "gallows" humor, but I don't have better phrase for it. Enjoy, and thanks for your support through this time.
