Watching a Nova special on dreams right now.
Yesterday (Friday) I wasted most of the day. Been up later and later (it was 3:30 or 4 when I fell asleep Thursday/ Friday). Went over to Zack’s on Friday. Drank Margaritas with Erin (mango–not my favorite, but good), played cribbage (won!), ate some pizza and angel food cake with strawberries and blueberries (delicious!) and and watched Stripes with Zack. Good night.
Today (Saturday) I lounged for a bit, watched the first few episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender (good series so far), went to B&N and finished reading Dan Chaon’s book Await Your Reply (gorgeous novel of interwoven stories), came up with a few more ideas for my story, then headed over to Megan’s house where we walked around Lake Calhoun, ate sushi and drank wine, and had a good (and expansive) conversation. Good night overall.
I’m trying to relax from the stress and drama from earlier in the week. I got pretty angry the other night after a chat and was actually shaking (took a few pulls of whiskey to calm down). There are some things that need to get worked though but when something matters then you do it. I won’t get into details about who or what (maybe at some point it will seem appropriate, but so far that is not what this blog has been about so I won’t go there).
Going to finish watching this show about dreams and maybe an episode or two of Airbender, but then sleep beckons. Tomorrow I may or may not hang out for a bit with Zack and Erin in the afternoon and then I’m going to see The Hold Steady at First Ave with Meaghan. So, a fun Fourth awaits!
More later …
