Lately things have been crazy, as most of you know. Living the corporate life, days are between twelve to fourteen hours, though the work is very interesting.

Hey hey. Just a random post to confirm that I am still indeed alive.
I just got back from picking up the ukulele from the luthier. On the way home I stopped in a park, played a little, took the pics below, then went for lunch. After this update I’ll be playing for quite some time… this instrument is incredible. The tone, the feel, the action, the… everything. I am impressed. Very impressed.
Long week. Lots of fires to put out this week at work. But it’s over and am enjoying a lazy Saturday morning.
So I’ve been saving up for a tenor ukulele (the generally accepted types are soprano (what I have now), concert (slightly larger/louder than the soprano), tenor (more volume and bass but, more importantly, longer fretboard, the whole instrument is about 4″ longer than a soprano) and baritone (a mini guitar, 50% loner than a soprano and often with different tuning).
Hey-o. A dreary Saturday. Let’s see if I can get my apartment clean for a change.
After work I went to pick up a parcel from the UPS warehouse. One they confirmed would be there. That their website tracking page confirmed was waiting for me. But it wasn’t. The parcel was on a truck. I decided I’d not be like the previous two customers, who stormed out swearing and throwing stuff around (not exaggerating) or be bothered by one of the clerks asking customers if their company is hiring ’cause she hates UPS (not even joking). After a few minutes they offered for me to meet up with the driver to get the parcel. So I was given the address to a plaza and told that he’d be there and I was provided with a half hour window of opportunity. Yeah. He never showed. I left 50 minutes later.
A little more uke fun.
