She's actually getting a therapist! I'm very happy about that - mostly in that she's recognized that she needs to deal with more than simply a chemical problem.
Packed everything in the car, and headed to the show. I got there on time for once (Despite Oakland traffic), and set up early. The show had an interesting energy - hard to describe. All I can say is that I started it feeling exhausted, and ended feeling pretty energetic, so all was good. It certainly was not one of those standing room only nights - it was a little slow, still, but busy enough, and those who stayed all night got to do 6 songs.
Will, Carolan, and Gary -- an older group that does, well, older songs - came for the second time, and plan to make it a habit, which is great in a number of ways. Variety is good.
Several people showed up that I hadn't seen in a while - at least at the show. Angela, Marc, Liora, Yasser and others I can't remember right at this moment. That's always cool, especially since Yasser stayed all night.
The main negative of the night is that someone apparently stole unbreak_able's cigarettes. She was particularly not happy, and I don't blame her.
After the show, did another Denny's run, this time with Steven, Kendall, and mr_seed. Had the usual rollicking good time, then I drove Apple home, and collapsed in bed.
