It’s a quiet day at work — my manager is in Asia, most of my colleagues took the day off or are working from home, and IBM locations in New York are closed for the holiday. So I’m taking advantage of the quiet to work on a proposal, get caught up on my e-mail, and catch up on the Bootcamp channels I missed last week in Paris. I’ll be catching up on the rest of the channels later this week (I suspect that some of this week’s channels won’t hold my interest for very long).
At any rate, I’ve spent the last hour or so at Hank’s Place, which has been a very pleasant surprise. As I’ve written before, I didn’t like country music when I was growing up — but my tastes have broadened over the years, and I’m enjoying my visit to the honky-tonk country era at Hank’s today. I’m surprised at how many of the songs I know, too.
Sometimes, though, when I listen closely enough to hear the lyrics, I’m taken aback, as when they played Mary Kilroy’s “Bit and Bridle” a few minutes ago.
I’ll be back to Hank’s. Wish I could get them to deliver the beer, though!
