Spent the weekend with friends in Rock Island. Our friend Pete went home to visit family, so it's always a good excuse to meet him down there and hang out. Since we couldn't get off work early, we had to leave Chicago from downtown during rush hour on a Friday. Real smart. It took us about 12 hours to make the usual 3 hour trip. Ok, maybe that's an exaggeration, but we were still in stop and go traffic for what felt like forever. Then again, I slept through the first hour or so of the trip, so it wasn't so bad on me.
Once in Rock Island, we had a blast as usual. Saturday during the day,after yummy soup and ice cream from Mama Comptons, we went to West Music store to find sheet music for an audition I have tonight. I'll let you know how it goes later. Anyways, while at West's I picked up a saxaphone for the first time in probably 5 years. It's a lot like riding a bike... a bike that's broken and out of tune. I was horrible, sigh. Oh well. We got to play a show on Saturday night at the Comedy Sportz. Jeff (the owner) brought in a live band to play for the show. Overall, I think the show was really good, Corey was definately on. Either way, it was a ton of fun as usual. We spent the rest of the time drinking and laughing.
Looking forward to the next trip guys!
