What Up, D.M.

I met a man who is starting up a band, and Imma be in it! We have played together two times, and it is purettty fun. It's the second (and third) time that I have ever played my bass with someone else in the room, and it feels pretty damn awesome. I also get to sing things! In a mike!

This is great. I, literally, cannot wait for us to play a show. It's going to happen for realz! Also, this guy has a really cool dog who is big and muscley and seems to like me a lot.

Before practice number 2, I took a baby vacation to Spokane for my friend's birthday/party, and it also was purettty fun. But now, I am re-sadded that I am not in Spokane, having fun with fun people. But it will be okay. It is okay. Cause I'm in a band. And right before THAT, I got asked out at work! Which was very flattering, but became a little bit uncomfortable when he told me that he was 37 years old. Needless to say, we did not actually go on that date.

Here's A Thing

I've already decided that if/when I have a horrible, unfair break-up where I find out that my boyfriend is cheating on me, I will not get even with him. I will not get revenge. I will not rant and rave.

Instead, I will become famous. Because Famous is the best revenge.

And Segue: Whenever I get disappointed by some guy, my immediate reaction is to go find some other positive male attention as quickly as possible.

Which leads me to this thing. I wrote an ad and put it on Craigslist. Here it is:

I bought a bass for $100, and I have been playing it for a grand total of 1 year, and I would like to play in your band.

I can read tabs and play them slowly. I can also play all open strings with proficiency and a tiny bit of speed. I have mad bass skillz.

But seriously.

I can also sing quite a bit better than I can bass-play, and I have bangs. I would be totally happy to send you a tasteful, fully-clothed picture of myself if you are into that kind of thing, because I wanna be in your band.

Unless Nirvana is one of your influences, cause in that case I don't want to be in your band at all. I'm cool with everyone else, though.

So that was a week ago, and since then I have gotten four responses from metal bands, two responses from men who want to give me bass lessons for FREE, and I have met with one actual guy who wants to put me in a legit band. Maybe I will be in a band? If that happens, it will be everything that I have ever wanted.
