Spring Break Experiment

March 17, 2006

This week being Spring Break, the doggy play day place where I take LilyDawg on workdays was full with boarding dogs, so they weren't having play day. Usually they let Lily come play anyway since she's a regular, but I decided to conduct an experiment. I took long lunches every day to come home and walk her. Here's what I learned:

  • Lily did great! She was home from 4-5 hours in the morning and from 5-6 hours in the afternoon. I haven't found any "accidents." happy
  • I didn't do so great. frown Not that I had any "accidents." I really hated having the commitment of coming home. I crave flexibility, and lunch time wasn't flexible this week.
  • Every day, I had something that "crowded" my lunchtime. I was taking lunch from 11:00 to 1:00. Monday, I had a presentation at 1:00, and I needed to be back at 12:30 to prepare causing me to really rush home and rush back. Tuesday at 11:00 leaving time, I was doing research for a possible purchase that needed to be done *that* day and ASAP. Wednesday at 11:00, I was deep into programming some php magic on a new html form and didn't want to stop. Thursday, I had a meeting from 10:00 - 11:00 and was scheduled to have another "brief" meeting afterward. Luckily, it didn't happen, but the anticipation of it stressed me out. Conclusion: A long 11:00 - 1:00 lunch sounds like it would relieve stress, but it just causes more.
  • Lily met me at the door with kisses both times I came home each day (lunch and after work). She never does that when I come home from the store or some other small excursion. Nor when I pick her up at day care.
  • I'll be glad to have her back in day care next week. I think she'll be happy to see her doggy friends, too. Especially Ramrod the Beagle. smile

Shadow of a Girl and Two Days

March 25, 2006

About four years ago, I wrote Shadow of a Girl based on a script for a movie called Two Days. The movie was written by Paige Carl Griggs. He stars in it and used that song and at least one other in the movie. It's being screened in April at the Philadelphia Film Festival.

You can hear my music in the trailer on the Two Days Website. You can hear the acoustic guitar intro to Space Needle in the beginning, and then you can hear me singing Shadow of a Girl in the background of the bar scenes. How cool is that?

YOU ROCK KIM!!! Can I have your autograph? You have such a beautiful voice, it was only a matter of time before you were in a movie. clap

Thank you, A.! happy

Hey Kim, Way way way cool!!!! I can say I knew you when. Awesome!! Congrats!! Mark is doing good. Still has a lot aof pain but that is to be expected. My broken ankle is getting better. We are on the mend here. We are just soooo blessed! !!!

Congratulations, Kim. Fun, fun. I knew you when, too.

Congrats, Kim, very cool indeed. Isn't it wierd hearing yourself in the background of a film? I played some music for a short film a couple of years ago, and when I got to watch the actual film, it was surreal hearing myself contributing to the mood of the different scenes.

I really hope this leads to some more work and exposure for your talents! clap

All right, our girl has hit the big time!

Congratulations, Kimmeth! happy Hug

Thanks, everyone! smile
