Not for the likes of you and me

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.  So for that long I’ve kinda been shunning it.  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.  I just don’t have it in me.

Saturday dawns bright and blue and just a little less than warm.  I have some decisions to make about what to do with my day – there’s so much shit piled up on my desk at work, but I might head in there tomorrow and get that done.  My boss won’t be there then and I stand a chance of actually achieving something.  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.  Because there sure as hell needs to be some change.

Also, today I’m off to find some boxes.  And so begins the packing.  Have I ever mentioned how much I hate packing?  Well, I really, really do.  It’s exciting though.  For the last, well, 2 years really I’ve felt this need to move forward and make changes and achieve things.  And sure I’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 –

A)  How do you get candle wax out of carpet?  The scraping with the knife thing is kinda not working.  I think at some stage I’m going to have to involve heat.

B)  Right now my iPod is stuck half in and half out of its swanky new rubber case.  It has been this way for a week.  It’s stuck fast – no going up, no going down.  Everyone I have asked about this has given me the ‘break the seal’ answer.  I’ve tried, really.  I think perhaps I’m going to have to get surgical.

Also, Jeff Tweedy today is somewhere in this city.  Aha!  I know tonight will be amazing.
