like the sun my personality has been hidden behind clouds for most of the month of may. the insomnia has gotten the better part of me and i’m a washed out photo of my usually sunny self. i’ve turned to wilco & billy bragg for comfort. Mermaid Avenue is like my favorite sweater and a soft blanket on a cold winter’s day.
in other news i’d like nothing more than to go home tonight eat some ice cream and watch the rest of Dawson’s creek season 5. sadly i won’t be able to do that. no, instead i have to help sister #4 move into her new house. yes, sister #4 and jose bought a house. i kind of keep forgetting about it, because i’m a bad sister and i’m in denial.
you know that scene in “High Fidelity” where Rob’s ready to go out to lounge ax like he and Dick and Barry do every week? but instead of going out with Rob, Dick has a hot new girlfriend to make out and Barry has to go write songs for his new band? and you just see Rob standing at the counter of Championship Vinyl wondering how in the hell everyone got a new exciting life when he wasn’t looking?
well here i am, standing at the counter of championship vinyl.
