Things to be happy about –
??? Tickets to see Korn in April.
??? Wilco. I think I’ve mentioned that once before, but it bears repeating.
??? I had a real laugh today at something Josh said/did when the power went out. It was one of those moments when your stomach hurts and you can’t breathe and the tears are running down your face.
??? My house is clean clean clean. It’s the one bonus from expecting guests who don’t show up.
??? Tara spoke to Mum today and things seem to have evened themselves out. As they generally do.

Reasons to look forward to the weekend, even though I will be buried under migration regulations 9 hours a day Saturday till Tuesday –
??? Friday means the last day I have to work with my boss until March 20. I have so many plans for the next 4 weeks and so much I want to get done.
??? Company.
??? Sharing music with two of my favourite people.
??? My b-boy Brodie and my fly-girl Bala.
??? Hopefully the last 3 days of the course will help with the exam stress welling up inside. It did last time.

Albums that will NEVER be taken off my iPod. Ever. –
??? U2 – Achtung Baby
??? Tool – ??nema
??? Ani DiFranco – Living In Clip
??? Counting Crows – August and Everything After
??? U2 – Rattle and Hum

People I’d like to have to dinner and get drunk with and talk with till all hours of the morning (minus DiFranco and Bono because we don’t want this to be a real yawn) –
??? John Darnielle
??? Bill Clinton
??? Adam Spencer
??? Brett Whiteley
??? Joni Mitchell

This week has honestly been fucked, beginning to end, but just listing that shit out made me feel a lot better. Things are looking up though. Tomorrow night is about the vodka and the music. I could cry I’m so happy about that.

Also, I’ve started reciting in my head the words to the Sylvia Plath poem ‘Ariel’ to the tune from One Crowded Hour. It either means I’m reading too much Plath or listening to too much Augie March. I think I probably know which one it is.
