so after hibernating in the county all weekend during the awesome blizzard of '09, and thankfully having lots of time to assemble a fine show for you folks, i came to town for some dinner, drinks and socialization before the show.
only to be beset by 3 charlottesville toughs (if there can be said to even BE such a thing), and beaten about the face and head. youch. i think they must have hurt their hands on my classic british isles noggin, because when i got up and asked them what else i could do for them (in not exactly those words), they decided it was time to exuent.
i proceeded, lumpy and bloody, to the station, and after deciding the hospital wasn't going to be called for, went on air at 11pm as scheduled.
glad to have done my prep-work, which allowed my semi-concussed self to run through the set on a sort of auto-pilot. to good results, i hope.
happy new year to all.
