Rude fundraising professionals aside, this has been an uncommonly good week. I sold the Wheat Street house in Columbia, ending an eight-month process that included three failed closings. Rock ‘n Roll Heaven sailed over top-of-season revenue projections and posted its first sold-out performances. It dawned on me that the entire staff is excited about the July fundraiser. (Our business manager is going to create a mixed drink especially for the event – Martian martinis. Glow-in-the-dark glasses may be involved.)
Printed materials for the fundraiser have begun to arrive and they look fan-tas-tic. The drummer for Rock’n Roll Heaven suggested, and I implemented, putting the show brand on his bass drum head.
Brilliant idea! The Lloyds Luxe floor mats I ordered for my car arrived and they’re all I was hoping they’d be. Yesterday, to celebrate the sale of the house, I took two of my best friends out to lunch and dinner and today I’ll pay off the mortgage on my condo. Debt-free I’ll be for the first time since I arrived in Greenville three years ago.
I traveled to Clinton to audition for the Greenville Light Opera Works (GLOW) production of Trial by Jury and was offered the role of the Judge. I’m now pondering that offer. Greenfield’s abandoned its misguided whole wheat everything bagel experiment. Everything bagels should be white inside and now, happily, they are once again. (They’re also an important part of my complete breakfast.)
