and it's only Tuesday night

Drove out to Chantilly after work tonight only to find that I'd forgotten to pack my PO box key. Drowned my sorrows in half a rack of Willard's ribs with beans & rice on the side, and then motored up to P's place to walk her through her state and Federal taxes on TurboTax. Oddly, her results were very different from mine, but since she's getting a refund instead of the full-force reaming by the IRS she was expecting, it was nonetheless a Good Thing.

I continue to be amazed at the number of recruiters and HR people who are calling me now that I'm on assignment and a week away from heading off to Minnesota. There's six calls on my home voice mail and another on my cell phone; I fielded two on it as well before leaving it in my cube on the sixth floor while shuffling file folders for the real accountants down on the second floor. The younger one, N, is a pretty cool guy - he plays World of Warcraft, goes to TMBG concerts, and turned me on to this podcast site, in return for which I suggested that if he liked TMBG he might get a kick out of Frank Zappa. Going to miss him when I go, that's for sure.

So...starting to get things together for next week. It'll be tight but doable.

It makes my hair hurt to think that there is someone younger than me who hasn't heard any Frank Zappa music. Good call, though... TMBG's artistic sensibilities are similar to Zappa's, musical style issues aside. Just short of being musical Dadaists... hmm, rather like DEVO, too, now that I think of it (and once again, musical style issues aside).

To paraphrase the Encyclopedia Dramatica, "Frank Zappa: great musical troll, or greatest musical troll?"
