Tonight was Melissa Brett's CD release party for The Butterfly Ball at The Listening Room in Nashville. As always, Melissa was ravishing and put on a great show. It was very exciting to see everyone ooh and aah over the CD, since I did the graphic design for it. :^)
I felt pretty awkward afterward, though, and ran away pretty soon after Melissa wrapped up on stage. Social graces just don't come naturally for me. *sigh* I wish I could not be so anxious in situations that involve socializing.
I forgot the camera, so I took this photo with my cell phone. However, I have no idea how to pull pictures from my cell phone onto the computer without bugging my hunka-hunka-I.T.-love, so I figured I'd take a picture with my butterfly shirt that everyone liked. I made this shirt when I was but a wee lass. I was rockin' the t-shirt paint. Oh, yeah.

For week #2, Darrell took me, Naomi, and Pratiksha to "Tokyo" at work in TPAC. They call it Tokyo because it's so far away from everything, and it takes 131 stairs to get there from the stage level. There's a long staircase, a catwalk over Jackson Hall, a large storage area (Tokyo), and the spot booths. On the spot booth walls, there is artwork from all the different touring shows that have played Jackson Hall over the years. I've always heard about it, but I'd never been up there. So, what a great excuse to finally see it!
I hope I'm not violating some unwritten code of stagehands by posting a photo...

On my birthday, Darrell, Father, Christopher, Christopher's friend Micah, Uncle Eddie, Aunt Wilma, Eddie's brother David, and some of David's friends and family rode motorcycles down to the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Leeds, Alabama (near Birmingham). Micki and Caitlin followed us there in the truck, and I rode most of the way home in the truck, because my butt was sore.
The museum was gorgeous. I loved soaking in all the pretty, shiny bikes and seeing the inventive displays. Watching the guys get weak in the knees while watching the racetrack was also one of my favorite parts.
It was a lovely day for a road trip, and I enjoyed spending the time with friends and family.
I've decided that I need a Cushman.
