If you looked at my Instagram feed from the last week, you'd think - Abby, did you even sleep?
I'll sleep when I'm dead.
But honestly, last week I attended shows four nights in a row. And on Saturday I went to two. Seriously. So today, even though I had to go to the dentist and take my car to get an oil change, it was the most relaxed I've been in a week. And in three days I'm headed out for a three-day We Are Scientists marathon in Portland, Vancouver, and Seattle. Like I said, I'll sleep when I'm dead.
So on a day like this, I recorded a couple of videos, but most importantly - I slowed down. I listened to some music, read a book, and enjoyed some much needed caffeine.
One of my favorite records in my car right now is the new release from my friend Kris Orlowski - Believer. He had his album release show a few weeks ago at the Showbox and it was one of the most surreal experiences I've ever head. Campfire OK and St. Paul de Vence - more of my friends - opened the show. This was the first time I've been friends with everyone on the lineup at the Showbox.
A couple of my favorite songs off Believer are Slide, Good Country People, and Carolina. Check it out, guys. I'm serious. I'm lucky to have such talented friends.
I've also recently fallen in love with Mindy Kaling. She is my ultimate lady crush. One of the funniest women on television, smart, bold, stylish, and sassy as fuck. Her book is the first book I've read in like two years (I know, I'm ashamed of myself), but I absolutely love it. If you loved Bossy Pants from Tina Fey, you have to read this. Actually, if you just love funny people, you have to read this. I just want to be Mindy's best friend.
So now I'm off to finish editing tonight's video, take a bath, watch the Voice, and be lazy for the rest of the night. The next two days I have work, then I'm setting off on a marathon of shows with my favorite guys in the world.
Have a good week, you guys!
