Texas, here I come: April 5-18th. It's not enough time, but that's all I can afford to take away from work and the band. And best of all, I get two whole days with my Kat in her home of the last three years right before she leaves it.

The goal is for it to have a more serious, and not so personal nature. Hopefully I can stick to that.

Oh, and if you would like to follow it on LJ, here is the rss link.
