Fun week in Arnica-ville.
It started with an entire week of cold symptom having-fun times, which lead to the highest of highlights. Arnica used a netty pot for the first time. Don't know what a netty pot is? It is self inflicted water-boarding. You pour hot-salt infused water down one of your nostrils, using a special netty pot, and out the other nostiril comes the water and lots of lovely chunks of nasal nastiness. Good times. But now Arnica thinks he has a sinus infection. Arnica's boogers and snot have gone from green to clear to a strange orange—the kind of orange you get when you don't add enough milk to your Kraft cheese and macaroni and you end up with a powdered cheese noodle mess. Arnica has partially dissolved cheese powder in his nose and it ain't pretty.
Any who, Arnica has been told by countless unqualified experts that he has a sinus infection. So Arnica has accepted their diagnosis and will be going to the quacker later this week.
Let's see... what else. The band played a gig at a supermarket parking lot this past Saturday afternoon. It was awesome. We had a large part of the lot taped off and we played outside. Arnica counted 20 people who walked by, 8 who turned their heads at us and 3 who smiled. Other than that, we played to a packed house (of cars). The grocery store is called Green Grocer and it was their one year anniversary and, yes, a band member is dating one of the checkers at the store, which is how we got the gig.
Oh, and this picture sure is funny. Ain't it?
