in awesomes and not so awesomes:
awesome: dinner at obelisk. why were we wasting all that time and money on galileo?
not so awesome: sliding up against a curb and face planting off my bike on the way to dinner in dupont circle. in front of about 32 million people.
awesome: getting a new cellphone. it has this thing called a camera in it!
not so awesome: waiting for an hour in the verizon store for any sort of service. old, fat middle-aged dude sitting next to me who tells me out of nowhere to stop biting my nails. i love complete strangers who comment on my bad habits and tell me they're not healthy for me and that it probably means something is psychologically wrong in my life and i should fix it and then maybe i won't bite my nails anymore. thanks. maybe you should lose 50 pounds. then you won't be a fat jerk anymore.
awesome: the wrens at the black cat. it's like - so, you've wanted to be a rockstar for 30+ years. and suddenly, you are. and what do you do? you rock the fuck out and are completely awesome. if you have never listened to the meadowlands, please do yourself a favor and listen, listen, listen! it's so wonderful.
not so awesome: being a complete zombie at the show as a result of four hours of lifting boxes and furniture. as i was sitting at the bar, staring blankly into space, as tommy and others were off being normal people and drinking beer and talking, a guy actually tried to come on to me with this line: "so, YOU look like you had a TERRIBLE day!" oh, lord.
