Yey for me!
Reality: Didn't sleep well on monday night so getting up early on the tuesday was horrible. then the filming was very longwinded and boring and just generally a ballache. I get back to my flat the night and my girlfriend and her mates are already drunk whilst I'm tired and sober :( we go to the student union and because my girlfriend is so drunk she knocks my pint out of my hand which goes all over me. I then go to get a new pint but slip on the spilt pint, go arse over tit and land on my wrist spraining it whilst everyone laughs at me hysterically (if I was a girl I would of been picked up and taken care of, but no). I go home on Wednesday to find I cant hit any of my new cymbals with my right sprained hand and struggle to even lift them onto the stands.
If this is karma, I must of done something horrible in a past life :(
Don't worry about practicing playing your drums... you need to practice some real life, cos there are some big bad things that just happen indiscriminately to anyone who is out there, not thru anyones fault, or bad mojo or bad karma... and we all have to deal with & actually enjoy our lives despite what happens. I'm sure the homeless guys on Deansgate could shed some light on this for you, just give them a minute. Maybe they should start teaching common sense at uni again... Hope your wrist is better soon. Ohh & I long for a drunken girlfriend - but don't tell my wife!!! :-D
