Crazy busy the last couple days, landed in Berlin, didn't even unpack as I fly today to Rock am Ring, somewhere in Germany (Nurnberg?) There are many bands there and I will be busy massaging and it won't feel like work, as I will be in rock and roll heaven. Saw Jasmine a few times, which is paradise for me. Berlin is hot and sunny, perfect weather.
I was going to be body painted by the same company that painted me before, but they totally flaked out, as in, didn't call, answer emails, etc. They quoted me 450 euro for the painting, which I agreed to, then later said "well, it will be another 85 euros in tax". That is around $150 at this point so I moaned about that and I suppose that is what made them flake, that and the one email that explained it would be TOO MUCH work, etc. ugh! This is how the front would have looked:
I would have perhaps been allowed to introduce the band (KISS) on stage in my body paint this coming Monday when they play Berlin. Fecking lazy ass body painters.. KISS my ass. I promised Doc and co. that I would just come dressed in my nurse uniform to make up for the lack of body paint.
AGAIN, Berliners NOT into making cash. They are not as ambitious here as they are in NYC, that is for sure. Nice for them I suppose, they chill, relax, never break a sweat, don't worry about tomorrow, but dealing with such people irritates me as I am so on the ball and ready to work; LOVE to work and I find it hard to understand people who avoid work.
Some of my friends give me shit that I don't have time to answer their emails, which are simply silly jokes, but then again, those friends are unemployed, live with their mom and haven't a care in the world. Must be nice!? Eh, I don't think so, work makes me happy- guess I am a freak, but then again, if you watch Gene Simmon's Family Jewels show, you will see he is also LOVES work, so I know I'm not the only one. Sigh.
Anyways, got a flight to catch, not bringing lap top (for once) either. Rock am Ring, here I come
