So nice to be home

It's a 2 hour flight but a 24 hour drive.
OO-ooh is it nice to be home.
Fuck am I broke. I am trying to rent my bedroom out to travelers and live in the living room or else it's either rent or phone that's gonna go.
The best thing to do about it is to contemplate it all with some white widow, take a nap and then do the footshow.
What I should be doing is applying for jobs, answering mail and sending excuses to the phone company so they don't shut me off.
Why is money like water in my hands?
Don't say it's the dope.
Always have thought I was a princess.
I practiced as a kid balancing books on my head cuz I read that's what fine ladies do.
Now all I need is a prince or five.
No this is not an offer of prostitution.

Wasn't I just saying it was so nice to be home?
True, but real life is such a drag!
oh well

Just keep clicking your heels and saying over and over to yourself: "There's no place like home... there's no place like home..." No? Well, it worked for Dorothy, but then again, that was a fairy tale! Hang in there... there's always a silver lining somewhere!

Footshow did the trick.
Nothing like sitting around listening to music with your friends.
And we are now all in love with Camille.

Sorry to hear that the money is tight, kid. I've never been money-driven, but I have lived though times when there was no money coming in -- and never want to have to do that again!

Stay focused. Rely on your inner strength -- and your friends.

(Still plan to catch one of your footshows some day...!)

I've known some filthy rich people in my life. Unlike for us, money doesn't solve any of their problems. Wouldn't that suck?

Shiva - you are so right. That would suck the worst kind of ass. Yesterday I browsed apartments for sale in my neighborhood online.
Harem boy number one spit out his tea when I told him, asked me if I was gonna sign over my social security check as a down payment or what? We had a good laugh about that one.

Silkditty- wow hey thanks for the blog pimp. LOL I had just decided to change my location to Amsterdam (ahh the joys of wishful thinking) but I changed it back when you outed me as a California Girl.

Yeah, the footshow was my light and guide through cancer, now it is morphing into my distraction from real life.

I have a concert this month to release a new CD and I haven't played my guitar in like 5 weeks. Haven't made the flyers yet either.

Well it's not a new CD per se, but a recording of 80's covers I did while in CHemotherapy plus my 3 new songs I have written.
I am giving the CDs away for free at the concert, for everyone just in case I die so they can have a bunch of songs any friend would have that I never play in concert, the fun campfire ditties we all so know and love, like "Tainted Love" and "Little Red Corvette" I dont wanna pay royalties so I am giving it away. I wonder if that will work?
Anyway the CD does not carry my name - the recording artist was "Cancer Diva"
But I will do another footshow now.
