Rants and other bits...



- I've been feeling quite exhausted lately ; falling asleep everywhere, even on rehearsals while playing. My brain feels off most of the time and I've had the hardest time keeping my concentration for the past 2 weeks. Most of the time, I feel like a headless chicken running nowhere. And a sore one ; my entire body aches as well. Sore muscles as if I'd just ran an entire marathon. And infernal migraines to top it off. I should have it checked out but I'm just too exhausted to do so...

- Election day is coming soon over here and I've decided to do the most responsible thing and not vote. Well, the most responsible thing for me. I've always made fun of the whole thing ever since I've had the right to vote, by putting my vote in for the fake parties, like the Rhino* who promised to put asphalt on the entire St.Lawrence River, in order to get a bigger and more efficient highway throughout the province. Or for the independent guy who promised to rise the minimum wage to $20 / hour and legalize weed. Surprisingly enough, none of my favorites ever got elected... Call me stupid but I just find it a bit hypocrite to go in and vote for the one I think lied fewer times than the others. So instead of standing in line in the cold for a few hours, I'll just stay home, have a beer and watch a good old sappy movie.

- I've been avoiding many friends lately. This is the time of the year where I hire some trumpet players for either some Big Band jobs or for the Easter period. I've had my favorites for the past few years but I am also looking for new faces. What's the best diplomatic way to tell a friend : I'm sorry but you're just not good enough ?

Off to bed now. How's your week going so far ?

Gosh, I hope you feel better soon. Have you been to the doctor?

The best diplomatic way is, "Dude, you are just not good enough!"
