It’s $5, and I go on at 10 p.m.!

I went to five parties this weekend. I’m pretty proud of myself because I had the gall to go alone.
Admittedly, two of them had lots of close friends. One, I knew only the host and another attendee. At the last two though, I only knew one person. One of those was the co-host of a bar, birthday party with a lot of people. I was on my own and had a blast!
I also made some networking contacts regarding travel.
I’ve been laying very low during the week. I’m trying to balance working a decent amount of overtime with proactive relaxing and exercise to avoid stress.
The parental units are coming into town this weekend, so I have A LOT of cleaning to do. I think I am going to take them to Augusta. And the Scottish Arms.
I just got back from my first yoga class.
I think it is going to be good.
The Record Exchange has an insane amount of records.
After two-and-a-half hours, I came away with nine.
1. Roberta Flack – First Take (1969)
2. Roberta Flack – Killing MThe e Softly (1973)
3. Roberta Flack – Roberta Flack (1978)
4. Roberta Flack – I’m the One (1982)
5. Hair – Original Broadway Cast Recording (1968)
6. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – Motion Picture Soundtrack (1978)
7. The Allman Brothers Band – Win, Lose or Draw (1975)
8. Humble Pie – Performance Rockin’ The Fillmore (1971)
9. The Who On Tour – Magic Bus (1968)
Roberta Flack’s voice is amazing. I had to have all I could find. I’ve already listened to the first two. Hair on vinyl is just… better. Sgt. Peppers is lots of good groups doing good songs. Any Allman Brothers kicks ass. Humble Pie is a group I’ve been wanting to hear. And Magic Bus is an early Who album, for which I paid the most.
I’ve been listening to the Buena Vista Social Club the last couple years and had no idea what I was listening to. (Yes, I know that sentence ends with a preposition, but that’s what I wanted to say.) All the amazing, aging, Cuban musicians who came together to make one last great album. I just watched the video from Netflix, and I have to say that it had me teary at the end. Excellent music. Excellent look into Cuba. Recommended.
