I Get Paid For Doing This (3)


Today's work schedule:

7:45- 9:30 a.m.: Drive to Milwaukee for deposition; talk on the phone to brother Matt for about 45 minutes during the drive. Spend most of that 45 minutes trying to convince him to post a video of him wiping out while trying to surf.

9:30 a.m.- 1:00 p.m.: Attend deposition of client. Listen. Occasionally talk.

1:00 p.m.-- 2:45 p.m.: Drive back home, listening the entire time to Tran-Siberian Orchestra's CD, "Beethoven's Last Night." Try to figure out if it's based on a true life story.

2:45 p.m.-- 3:15 p.m.: Eat bowl of Raisin Bran Crunch/look up information about Morehead State University.

3:15 p.m.: Try to buy Paul McCartney's Liverpool Oratorio online.

"Mephistopheles," from that CD:



P.S.: I don't think it's a true story, since I'm skeptical that at some point Beethoven talked with Mephistopheles.

It would have been a one-way conversation, given that Beethoven was hearing-impaired- lots of PARDON?s
Love work days that seem stolen.

You never know. As Bart Simpson says, "Everybody knows all the best bands are affiliated with Satan."
