Part of the band...

So last night I volunteered to play the bass this sunday for our youth praise band. This created some problems because I don't play bass, and I've never played with a band.
The fact the most of the band is composed of new freshman helped with the 'not being able to play bass part.' My struggles were not as noticible as they could have been. And the 'being in a band' dynamic was really fun.
We practiced two new songs that we learned at hume. ("campaign" was aaammazing) It took about 2 hours to go through 5 songs. Kinda long, but still fun.
So I've decided I want to be in a band now. I don't really care what I play... bass, or guitar are possibilities (drums and vocals are out). I don't have time for it, or the ability to play really well, but I still want to do it. I can add it to the list of things that I don't have time for, or good ability in. Oh well, at least I'll have eternity to work on some of these things.

Free Wi-fi

I am a follower and I'm cheap. Two things I've never really myself to be. I'm a follower because I've followed Eric Wakeling and Matt Doan to the Blogosphere, and I'm cheap because I only blog at Panera Bread because they have free wi-fi and I don't want to shell out the $40 a month to get it at my house.

I used to think I was a great support system, and that I was frugal with my money, but now I pretty much realize the those were just 'Tim' words for 'follower and cheap'.
So until that changes, this is where my blogging will take place. Over a delicious cinnamon crunch bagel, and cup of coffee (only $2.78 total!) Hooray for free wi-fi.
