...and I expect 2011 to be nothing special.
Had a good time last night hanging out with people I don't get to see very often. Playing Decemberists songs (and lots of others) with Lance, Regan, Bob, Emily, and Foe. We got schooled by a 16-year-old on the lyrics for "Don't Stop Believing".
This year was the best year so far for Drunk & Sailor. We had more shows than we've had before, including Bristol and our first real bar show. The adult show was a huge success at KYRF, and we seem to be almost living legends at Fishers. Our first (real) CD was made. It was recorded almost a year and half ago now, and already I feel we've moved far beyond what's on there musically.
But...we're doing about as many faires as we can possibly do already and still have day jobs. There's a lot of room for improvement and more gigs on the bar scene, but that will only happen if one of us grits our teeth and tries to do promos and actually book the gigs. Though I'm still enjoying D&S, I want to do other things too. I really want to be in a "real" band. Don't particularly care what kind of music it is, either.
This year I got the promotion at Half Price I've been wanting. I've been having a great time working at Amazing Wonders the last few weeks, too. I've been running playtests of the DCC RPG for Joseph...one of five or fewer people in the country doing it.
And of course, no recap of 2010 would be complete without mentioning that it had some of the highest highs and lowest lows of my life, both thanks to Laura. And since the lows kind of negate the highs (and then some), and occurred right near the end of my year...well, that's what 2010 is going to be remembered for. It's not 2010's fault, I know, but that's just how it is.
So the first part of 2011 is going to be about keeping my head down, not rocking any boats, and continuing the healing process. Spring and Summer will again be about Drunk & Sailor. The end of the year theme is still undetermined, though. I'm open to suggestions.
