Drunkard's Prayer
I recieved my new Over the Rhine CD yesterday, Drunkard's Prayer. It was signed - score! I didn't even know I was ordering a signed copy.

liner notes:
Discuss the origin of the title.

We opted to call the record Drunkard's Prayer, which was the name of the first song we recorded for this project, a song that sort of set the tone for the record. Maybe that's why we need songwriters: when we run out of words to pray, sometimes a song will do the trick.

We decided to put a white horse on the cover, because that image has been associated with redemption. The songs on this record tell the story of two people finding their way back home after almost losing everything, each other included.

We also liked the fact that Drunkard's Prayer sounded like the name of a race horse, a long shot, a horse with little chance of winning, but the one you've got all your money on.

Drunkard's Prayer - Everybody wants to be drunk on the good stuff--drunk on life, love, music, the wine of God and what not. In the New Testament, when the believers were first filled with the Holy Spirit and started speaking in tongues, the onlookers thought they were drunk. It takes some of that same holy foolhardiness to attempt to be an artist, a lover, a true friend, an adopted child of God.
Quiet music should be played loud.

Ack. When I listed the hours I was available, I didn't realize that would mean every second of those hours would be spent at Uptown. Last week, if I wasn't at school, I was at work. I was freakin scheduled for 42 HOURS (only actually worked 41). Last month, I was working 13. One of our employees got a new job and another had her baby (Ava Mae - what a great name), thus it was left to Amber and I to open, close and everything in between. Finally, we've hired someone and she has begun to be trained in. Which is about the most stressful thing to do when you are already overworked. Luckily, my boss decided not to take the 5th vacation of 2005 and stay in town to take care of her business.

Anyway, this week is better. I have a little more breathing room.

P.S. Anyone else afraid for the end of the semester to be so close?
So there is this guy. I should have met him long ago. I don't know how he's been avoiding me so long, we know all the same people. He calls me baby and wants me around all the time. Plus he has these really beautiful brown eyes that make me feel safe.
