Wow, I have just been staying insanely busy these last few months. Work has been ridiculously busy, and it seems that I have something I need to get done, or something to do almost every second of the day.
The beginning of this week, the wifey and I took Anna to the American Embassy to get all her paperwork filed. I have been preparing it on and off for the last month or so now so I am glad to finally be done with it. Hopefully, in the next few weeks, every thing will pass and she will be an American citizen (she is already a Japanese citizen). We are just waiting on her passport, social security number, and a copy of her birth report to arrive.
As for band, I’m going in the studio for one final practice in preparation for yet another recording we are doing on Sunday. It’s a bit of a cram job to be honest. We have had this song for over a year now but we have completely reworked it over the last three weeks to the point that it is almost unrecognizable; better, of course, but totally new. I am really looking forward to taking it down though. It’s just a much harder song than we have done so far. It’s definitely going to be a tiring recording session. Anyway, hopefully today we clean up some of the questionable parts and get a few good run throughs with the metronome. We plan on trying to take the track down all at once this time because we are going for a much more raw, live sound than we had on the last track. It’s a loud mother fucker, and the last thing we want is for it to come out sounding too clean.
Oh, and I got some early Christmas presents: a Nintendo Wii and a DS Lite. I am loving both of them, even though I haven’t found very much time to play with them yet. The Wii gives you a hell of a work out. I played it for about an hour or so when some friends came over last weekend and my muscles were sore for two days after (laugh).
