Post #39 of ANNIE B.’s D.I.Y. MAGAZINE: Need Rest!!
OMG it was FREEZING out there today but this is for the July issue, so I had to look summery! Do you think it worked??? My little pinkies got so frozen cold they almost broke off! After, the 3 of us had coffee at Starbucks and getting to know these folks was a lot of fun and they are GREAT people… so glad to be working with them! Jerry did such a great job, I’d like to do a full-day photo shoot with more outfits and locations. We did two outfits today and around 6 locations.
Next up was my friend over here to help with booking. She is a NATURAL! She’s gonna do GREAT and I think it’s going to be a win-win for both of us! I think she had fun, and she’ll be probably working 8-10 hours a week. If she can help secure JUST ONE new gig for me each week, it will SOOO pay off!!!
I realized at this point in the afternoon that I started coughing a lot and I think being scantily clad in 30 degree weather was doing me in. Cindy and I had an appointment to talk about a fundraier for Annie B & The Vagabond Company’s European tour. We spoke over the phone and discussed MOCT as a venue, and Sept. 10th as a target date. She will be auctioning herself off (for a date) to raise money for the cause! Now THAT’S what I call a good friend!!!!!! There will be 3 bands, a silent auction, hopefully a gallery of artists, and LOTS of promotion.
Off for a nap.
As I was half asleep/waking up, some tunes started swirling through my head. This would not be the first time I literally wrote a song in my sleep. I wish I could remember all those songs I wrote in my sleep. The first one was “Hey, Mama” (1993/94) which may need to resurface someday. I’d LOVE to someday do an album of songs that I wrote “in my sleep.” I tried to remember the first one, but then Mike called, and by this time, I had the last ‘swirling tune’ memorized. I told Mike I needed to pee and record this song on my phone and he let me go and that’s just what I did. The song is called “Hope” and I am planning on performing it at my InterContinental Hotel show on Friday night. I still need to write the 2nd verse, but I have a feeling it will come easily.
I was planning on seeing a band called Circle II Circle… Zoy invited me, but I was very much is need of rest and I am just about to return to bed, now that it’s already 11pm.
Good night, and please send vibes that I “get well soon”!!!
