as i promised chris lovely...the update i posted on vagrant..copied here to my blog...also a link to Fire.

coffee girl is emerging on the scene throughout the nation
i post a lot of little things here and there..but i havent gotten very deep here here's some window of what im doing right now

in case youve forgotten, i still love coffee shops. the concept drives me to want to keep the concept thriving. im a complete coffee geek, and embrace it gladly. (though rae has points over me)

the coffee shop ive been working at for the last year celebrates its one year birthday this saturday. i stuck my neck out and offered that we should have a big party for the occasion, and thus was dubbed director of said party...begins the freaking out. so for the last few months, ive been terrified of missing something important in this..while working 5 days a week 5:45am to around 3:00 most days (hours which are not convenient for party planning, mind you...and work is too busy to do much else besides making drinks while working anyhow)
but without fail, this event will take place on saturday. we'll have live music for about 8 hrs of the food and stuff like one of those spacewalks and facepainting...and just hopefully a good time for anyone who comes. and we hope EVERYONE comes...dangit!
the scarey stuff is...weve had some stormy weather this week and its predicted to continue through the weekend..and this is an outdoor gig.
if youre the sort, toss up a prayer for my sanity, the weather, and an overall good time.

ive got some good job security there...they trust my judgment and give me more responsibility than i think i can handle...and then i fly with it. its not that i can get away with anything, its that they know i wont do anything they'd disaprove of without good reason. i enjoy having that kind of credibility.

in other news, nick and myself are taking a road trip immediately after the coffee gig. we're driving sunday up toward springfield missouri to see jennylynne, then the following weekend we're heading over to tulsa to meet up with some other vagrants like the 007s, guardian and audra, lemuel, whomever else comes up in the mix. im realy excited about seeing fer again..its been too long. and i havent even met the 007s and lem yet...much much long waitedness there. i saw billy and audra a few months ago..but more time with them will be awesome. dangit, i used to see that billy kid multiple times a week, and now this months and years between sightings? no sir.

im excited about the trip..and between anticipation of it, and trying to get everything collected for the coffee shop birthday kind of scattered! :)

a month or so ago i was asking here for advice on where to move next, and i have had to put all thoughts of that aside till this is all over. i cant think about moving while planning so much already...but i bet as soon as i get to missouri, ill be rolling thoughts around again about it. thats me.

hrm...otherwise...the week i return from the road trip, i audition for the augusta choral society (i havent thought of anything to sing yet...oops) and i think church choir rehearsals begin again. i'll also have to hire one or two new people at the coffee shop...and train them..and complete the training of our newest....and hope that everything hasnt gome to shambles while i was absent. weee!
