Don't look now, but I actually went to an open mic night on Monday. And I played. jjfmi is hosting a biweekly open mic at Mentobe Cafe in Farmington (it's pronounced "Meant To Be," as opposed to, say, "Men-tobe"). Monday is a hard night for me because I usually meet my trainer at the gym on Mondays, but I rearranged things this week so I could go, and I'm glad I did. I played three songs, two of mine and one of not-mine, and they came off pretty well. I had wanted to rehearse a little, but never found the time, what with all the holiday stuff. Most of the other performers were people I was unfamiliar with, but they were all good. And the venue is very nice, with a fine menu and a cozy interior, right in downtown Farmington.

After the show, John and I went to Cowley's ("John Cowley's Public House", as I called it last night; think that was the full formal name at one point in time), practically next door, for Killian's, food and conversation. We had such a good time that I was totally surprised to find it was 11:40 when I got back to my car. On a work night, even!

Thanks. :)

But if I do it more often, people will get used to it and it won't be special anymore. :-P
