You know, I hit a point about 3 months ago where I thought if I heard the song One Crowded Hour by Augie March one more time I’d end up hating it.Â So for that long I’ve kinda been shunning it.Â But I’ll be damned – just now, on JTV, when they put on the clip and I heard the opening bars of the song, all the hair on the back of my neck stood up and I started grinning uncontrollably.
I want to be meh about this song, I really do.Â I just donâ€™t have it in me.
Saturday dawns bright and blue and just a little less than warm.Â I have some decisions to make about what to do with my day â€“ thereâ€™s so much shit piled up on my desk at work, but I might head in there tomorrow and get that done.Â My boss wonâ€™t be there then and I stand a chance of actually achieving something.Â I know that this coming week will be full of confrontation, heated discussion and an enormous amount of work, but I really hope that by the end of it there will be some change.Â Because there sure as hell needs to be some change.
Also, today Iâ€™m off to find some boxes.Â And so begins the packing.Â Have I ever mentioned how much I hate packing?Â Well, I really, really do.Â Itâ€™s exciting though.Â For the last, well, 2 years really Iâ€™ve felt this need to move forward and make changes and achieve things.Â And sure Iâ€™ve done some of that, but I really think, while not being the answer completely, moving from this little hole in the wall is a very positive step.
I have no doubt it will mean Very Good Things.
I also have two problems this morning â€“
A)Â How do you get candle wax out of carpet?Â The scraping with the knife thing is kinda not working.Â I think at some stage Iâ€™m going to have to involve heat.
B)Â Right now my iPod is stuck half in and half out of its swanky new rubber case.Â It has been this way for a week.Â Itâ€™s stuck fast â€“ no going up, no going down.Â Everyone I have asked about this has given me the â€˜break the sealâ€™ answer.Â Iâ€™ve tried, really.Â I think perhaps Iâ€™m going to have to get surgical.
Also, Jeff Tweedy today is somewhere in this city.Â Aha!Â I know tonight will be amazing.
