instrument (the band) :: mohegan sun, uncasville, ct :: august 13, 2008

That was my emailed response to the best present I could have received this year (so far).

After being all “OMG! They have new songs online!”,  someone, a very awesome someone - who never reads my freaking blog - sent me the EP. I was one of a very select few who got access to the mp3s early.  A VERY select few.  *squee* (or *meow*, depending on who you are…)  THANK YOU, D!!!!!

I had it playing at work today.  At one point, it was actually rather loud, considering I was on the phone, and the person on the other end asked me what it was.

I told her simply, “It’s my happy.”

I ended up pointing her to Instrument’s MySpace page ( MYSPACE.COM/INSTRUMENTTHEBAND What are you waiting for? GO!) and she really likes their stuff, too.

She and I talked about making the journey to an Instrument show together… but after thinking about it, I’m not sure that’s the best idea.  I tend to get into trouble when I’m in Connecticut and I like to get into trouble when I go to Connecticut.  (It helps chase the ghosts away.)  I don’t really think I’m ready for these two parts of my world to intersect… Yeah, she heard the stories, but I don’t think she needs to experience it head on.  Besides, I’m a different person when there are witnesses. I don’t want to be that person - she never has any fun!

I really feel honored that he thought about me when he decided to share the EP early.  It means a lot to me.  A LOT.

I don’t know what it is with the boys in this band, but one compliments me and leaves me smiling all week and the other one totally made my year (so far).

*contented sigh*

This almost makes up for the extended disco remix of the backstage ick…
