|Current music:||Goo Goo Dolls -- "Bullet Proof"|
You're a bullet through my soul, And I'll never let you know..
*climbs up into my tour bus, alone, and lets out a sigh of relief, thankful for a short break from my chaotic day*
*walks over to the small 'dining room' area of the bus and sets my drink on the table before plopping in the comfortable seat which resembles that of a booth at a restaurant*
So. New day. New city. New show. At the Gaylord Entertainment Center in Nashville, Tennessee, actually. Being here has suddenly made me realize that I have a thing for southern accents. *grins* How can you NOT like them? They're just so adorable. Not to mention how much more appealing it made that blonde guy who asked me for my autograph at the gas station... *smiles a bit and shakes head*
But seriously, the people here are so sweet. Everything is "Yes, Ma'am" or "No, Ma'am"... you don't get that kind of treatment everywhere! Especially not big cities like NYC. *laughs* So overall... I like it here. I might just have to stay here a few extra days, considering my next show isn't until the 29th. *nods and reaches over to grab my strawberry smoothie, before taking a long sip*
I'll miss touring once it's over. But it'll be really nice to have a little break. *yawns and takes another sip of my drink* Concerts, soundchecks, meet-n-greets, photoshoots.. after a while, those things start to get to you. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do, but sometimes I just wish things were a little more about making music and not so much about.. well.. me? *idly grabs the straw in my drink and moves it in circles, mixing up the whipped cream with the rest of my smoothie* It's just strange how to my friends and family, I'm just Meesh.. the dork.. but to the rest of the world, I'm Michelle Branch, the chick who plays guitar. *laughs* Though, being known for playing guitar is never a bad thing.
*gets up, drink in hand, and walks over to my bunk, kicking off my shoes before slipping into the bed to rest for a few minutes .. grabs the remote to the stereo, turning the radio on just as a bunch of commercials begin to play*
*sighs, hating the amount of advertisements on radio stations and polishes off the rest of the smoothie, slurping loudly once there's nothing but a few drops left*
*takes the now empty cup and shoots it toward the garbage. it hurts the side ofthe can and bounces in* Two points for Miss Branch.
*smiles and leans back on the bed comfortably, listening to the soft voices of the Goo Goo Dolls play over the radio, with full intentions of getting up and returning from my short break in a minute or two*
Do you listen to yourself.. Never live for someone else.. Do you like the way you feel.. Nothing hurts when no one's real
*nods in agreement with the song* Mm, amen to that, Johnny Rzeznik. *giggles and stifles a yawn, slouching down even further in the bed and closing my eyes, deciding that a little cat nap never hurt anybody*
