I want you to believe every word I say

A long week ahead, in the midst of applying for my Master's at various different schools. I have an overnight session booked on Wednesday for the pre-screening tapes. Yeehaw. I'll be elated when all the apps are in and December 1 has passed.

Also: I'm playing with the boys at the Brutopia Bistro (i.e. the basement, also accessible by 1215 Crescent) jam tonight, as I have for most of November. Tonight's lineup will be sax superhero Colin Power on alto; myself on keyboards; Jim Bennett, returned to us from BC, on bass; and our gracious host, Dennis Lee on drums.
