Last time I posted here I was in NY. Now I am in Hawaii and have returned to my normal life. I am at work already being stressed about stupid theatre crap. Last night I went to VJ’s for open mic night. I sucked. I was so tired. I wasn’t really in the mood. Oh well. So my flight was very long. I had a 3 hour lay-over in Chicago. My flights to Chicago and to San Francisco were both over-booked. They were asking for volunteers to give up there seat and fly out 2 hours later. In return they were offering free airline tickets. Sweet. But they were only offering to people whose final destination was San Francisco. That was not me. Oh well. I’ll just have to pay for my tickets to Sues wedding next year. On my flight to San Francisco, there were 5 babies. They were so loud. And two of them were in the row of seats behind me. They were so annoying. So I just put on my headphones, turned up my iPod and picked up my book. Before I knew it, we were only 4 hours away from San Francisco. On the plus side, the trip from SF to Hawaii was almost empty. I had a whole row of seats to myself. After we landed I rushed to the baggage claim to see my awaiting family. There standing was Mary. I saw her waving to Gavin and Holly who were just rushing out of the bathroom. As I reached the bottom of the escalator, I ran in and received a few very big hugs. It was so nice to see them again. It was only 2 weeks, but boy I missed them. Since I have been back, I have so enjoyed my family. Gavin is so awesome to be with. Holly is so beautiful and great to have. She very much enjoyed the leather jacket I bought her (it was a gift I picked up for her). We all enjoyed the banana bread and jelly and pickles that were sent along by my family. We also enjoyed the candy I brought home. Ahh UK candy. So good. And now, like I said, I am back at work. Back to routine. Something that I have made a goal to break out of. We must have some spontaneity. I will not get bogged down with the theatre. I will play more with my band. I will take Holly out on motorcycle rides to D&B just for the hell of it. I will drag Holly to the new bar in Kailua. We will have a life.
