I really, really woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. It's weird to be this aware of how out of control your negativity is and how unnecessary it is. From waking up from a dream where my boss was stumbling out of a drunken party at my neighbor's house asking me for various tasks to be completed to almost chewing out zarobi for daring to suggest a more efficient way of doing something I thought would take several days to complete, everything seems exaggeratedly awful. I've had to reprint this stupid letter 7 times, and now it simply won't work. Perhaps the fact that I'm hyperaware that this is not my normal personality is a clue that this is chemical, like hormones or whatever.

frecklefaerie & Jack & I went down to the State Theater in VA on friday and saw Lez Zeppelin and I was, as usual, overjoyed. The drummer impressed me and I felt, in the face of women performing Zep tunes, energized and simultaneously absolved of any previous liking of said tunes. The lead singer was okay; she really needed to let go and get raw, but the lead guitarist was raw to perfection. Bonus: a quick hug from peregrin8 during the second set.

My drum teacher wants me to buy a stick control book that's out of print. Great! Saturday we WoWed and then made Lars make us dinner. Sunday was band practice. I think it went well. I laid hands on a keyboard for the first time in years and I must say... I want one. Badly. Jack made jambalaya and Ruby watched almost all the videos I own that are appropriate for toddlers. I'm glad SOMEone else can appreciate Kipper the way I do.

Last night we had peril_book_club, chatted about the spanish civil war, and ate an entire tub of Helluva Good Onion Dip aka crack. I should only be allowed to get that stuff once a year, really.

I have to get back to work, not that I have any idea how to solve my myriad problems.

Shut UP, you pretentious kneecap!

I'm sorry. I've been dying to say that, and it just came out.

I was just telling midwinter yesterday that you sounded really good on Sunday, and that I was way impressed with your drum skillz. I hope next practice there will be singing. :P

I really want a keyboard too lately. It doesn't help that Nick wants one too.

Also: definitely crack dip, fo shizzle. I love the giant tubs of it that you can get at Costco. AGHM.

i am going to pretend i didn't hear that about the giant tubs.

I'm sorry I never got back to you about the Lez Zep show on Friday, but I was _beat._ I think I got home at around 4pm, and I was asleep on my couch by 7pm.

Relatedly, do you like the Smoking Popes? They're going to be playing at Nation this Thursday for $10.

I'm sorry you were beat! I think you would have enjoyed it.

Smoking Popes: I recall liking what I heard of them before. Ten bucks? Is that separate from the Alchemy entrance fee or what have ya?

Was it you that had the create-your-own timbuk2 bag? If so, how do you like it?

Good luck with your mood. Maybe you should just embrace it. Or, try singing REO Speedwagon to yourself. It's hard to stay grouchy when belting out, "but instead you lay still in the grass, all coiled up and hissin'"

I do have one, and I really like it. Right now I'm using something smaller but that is not the fault of the Timbuk2 bag. It's an awesome bag.

Musta been somethign about today - I woke up in a very bad, very bitchy mood. Bah! Here's hoping for the right side of the bed tomorrow.
Feb. 28th, 2006 11:27 pm (UTC)
Ugh!! I hope your mood has taken a turn for the better.

When I'm like that it's almost always hormones or blood sugar. I'm like that today, in fact. Crap, I'd better have some Tension Tamer Tea before this evening. I have some here somewhere, I think... Triple dose aught to do it.
Feb. 28th, 2006 11:29 pm (UTC)
I think it's definitely the hormones. I haven't eaten anything super crazy today.

It's so messed up when I know that something really negative has popped into my head for no reason and that I can't think about things in a positive manner even though I know it's not right or rational and there is seriously nothing I can do but wait it out. In a week hopefully it will all be over. >.<

Band practice? What what?
Feb. 28th, 2006 11:30 pm (UTC)
Ms. McSnaz & Sonicage and I are forming a band. Not sure where it's going yet but we did play a song! Gotta start somewhere.

I am disintegrating into a giant crying ball of rage and incomprehensiveness in 5... 4... 3...

Sorry to butt in here...
I happened across your journal while searching for comments on Ladies Rock Camp (was actully looking for reviews or something :s ) Anyway, I saw in your latest entry that your drum teacher wants you to get Stick Control. If it's the infamous Stick Control by George Stone, here are some links to get it online (I actually got my copy last year at some random Guitar Center)

Re: Sorry to butt in here...
Thanks! That's the book indeed.

Watch this space for reviews of Ladies Rock Camp come May...
