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.

    Ok thats it, we need to have an insomniac party. Some night there’s going to be liquor, snacks, music and movies and we’re not even going to start til after midnight. So those nights aren’t just spent on lonely ol work. What do you say?

    Its a shame you’re not closer to The Hub. We could have some great times listening to St Paul and mmmmMichael and wondering when the hell sleep will finally grace us with its presence.

    Insomniacs unite!

    Rob ended up in a stable relationship with a woman he loved.

    Just sayin’.

    I would suggest you stop listening to the new Belle & Sebastian, and put in Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves.
