Our band manager

Oh, you didn’t know that Thornfield has a band manager?

Well let me introduce her. Her name is Ellie.

Now where could she be . . .

Napping with the equipment, of course.

You guys ready for the show, or what?

Now lemme look over that set list . . .

. . . okay, okay, I see where you’re going putting some of those newer songs up front . . .

She is exactly what you want a band manager to be–aggressive, assertive, fierce–and she doesn’t cut a deal that doesn’t benefit her.

She also has a mean set of feline teeth that may or may not have chomped down on my arm completely out of the blue. Hey! Are you trying to disable one of your musicians!? I challenged her. But she was unfazed.

I’m the queen. I’ll disable WHO I want to WHEN I want to.

Now what did you think of my proposal to change the band name from ‘Thornfield’ to ‘The Ellie 4ever Tribute Band’?

We had just ordered a bunch of new sound equipment, and the living room at Carrie and Eric’s was strewn with cables, mics, and who knows what else.

Ellie carefully inspected it. She gave everything the full sniff-down.

I was also playing the guitar at the gig for the first time, so she went over my instrument inch by inch.

It seems to check out . . . just make sure to tighten that B string. Did you change it recently? ‘Cause it’s looking a little loose to me.

She supervised all proceedings until every piece of equipment was packed into the car:

If she could just refrain from physically injuring the members of her band, everything would be quite perfect.

    She’s so cute! Love the first pictures of her in the bag. Cats and dogs both love to investigate new things–I adore their curiosity. My favorite thing about cats…OK, one of them, is their love for boxes. If you ever put a box in their midst, they will settle themselves into it, no matter how small it is. And the purring….now that’s the best part.

      If only this particular kitty didn’t have such a vicious temper . . . her moods are frighteningly changeable, so you never know when the purrs will become a hiss, or when the snuggles will erupt into a bite. But she’s so fluffy that even with all of that, I can’t seem to keep my hands off her. =)

        So many cats are tempermental like that! haha. Its one of those things I find so funny about them =) Cats are also notoriously cunning….which I would think should make for a good manager!?

    Jenna, that’s awesome that you’re incorporating a second guitar! How did it go???

    • Jenna says:

      It went well! I made a few mistakes, but it was a great experience. I had worked it up to be this big deal in my mind, but it was much more natural than I thought. =)

    So cute!! I love kitty kats. Did you see the youtube of the barking cat?? LOL I can’t stop laughing. She barks until she sees the camera and then meows.
