FLOAT ON... OKAY

Hello Sarah, welcome to 10 weeks ago. So you're just sort of discovering how fucking amazing the Modest Mouse album is because your new roommate has it playing in her room whenever you stumble in from drunken nights. "Float On" is the song the Walkmen could've written if they had a pow-wow with Built to Spill. Hey Sarah, maybe if you play it like, 40 times in a row, you can turn back time and actually be "ahead of the curve" instead of running after it. Love, your music conscious.

So sad. OK, now i'm done talking to myself and writing myself hate mail.

So my blog seems to not work. Not sure what's happening, but i'm gonna update it anyway...just incase.

Friday, after shabbat dinner I went to the Squeezebox anniversary because i heard the Courtney Love was performing. I met up with Jake, Marc and his lovely girlfriend and my roommate, Elizabeth (she aint got a blog). The scene at Don Hills wasn't short of trannies. I was watching them enter the room as if they were the returning royalty and i began picturing what they were doing an hour early. I imagined them dusting off their wigs that they hadn't worn since the last Squeezebox about 4 or 5 years ago, squeezing themselves into their sequined gowns, pouting because their eyelash glue is clumpy. I sort of found myself happy that i didn't run around in a Tranny scene. I've got nothing agains them, I just don't know if i could keep up. I felt intimidated and scared by their posing and bodyparts here and there and everywhere. I felt like i was 18 and at Squeezebox... cept i was 24 and overwhelmed. This is why my parents keep me home on fridays.

Saturday I slept in until a pathetic 4:15pm. I woke up with a killer headache and a sense of "fuck, i know it's late. i just know it." I checked my phone and had a bunch of messages from people I was supposed to meet up with and totally flaked on. I felt like crap. The problem with sleeping in my parents house is that my bedroom slowly chokes me at night. I woke up in the morning gasping for air, and this is despite the fact that I was sleeping next to a window that was open.

My dad gave my mom the impression that our house is haunted. I tell my mom that he's full of shit, but to be honest, I sort of agree with him. I'm constantly fearing that if i turn around there will be some sort of figure standing there staring at me. I feel a presense in my room sometimes and it scares the shit out of me. If I wake up in the middle of the night I try hard to not move or open my eyes. I know this is really pathetic and silly, but I guess i'm just pathetic and silly at times.

My mom found my sparawled on the couch at 4:17pm, two minutes after i woke up. I had taken tylenol pm the night (or rather morning before since i couldnt get to bed until 6 am), and literally staggered down the stairs to the phone so i could call the people I was supposed to see that day and apologize. My mom said I looked really peaceful while sleeping. Probably cause I was drugged out of my mind and being suffocated by the ghost that lives in our house.

Saturday night I met up with Chow at the Morning Theft show. That band is just getting better and better and Rob is a totally great singer. I can't wait to see them perform again, and I'm gonna be sure to post the show here once i find out.

After that show we all headed over to JennyPenny's house for a bit of prepartying and while everyone intended to head over to Misshapes, many didn't hop on the bus and were still at her apt at 5am when I came round to see what was going on (I woke up a 4pm that day, so it was like, 8pm for me). Misshapes was fun as always. Everyone danced around, jumped around, made out. At one point GregTheBoyfrriend and I were dancing and he said he couldn't make out with me cause he was sick... moments later I was dancing with him again and saw his face covered in red lipstick. The ladies can't keep their paws off the boy these days.

By the way, there's a new misshapes gallery up from saturday night. Will someone please give Geordan a modeling contract already? Karen and I will be happy to handle all Geo inquiries.

If somebody could please remind me what I did Sunday I'd really appreciate it.

thanks!
sarah

I hope I didn't get her sick.

how can you be "too high" to watch a children's movie. That's the only way I like to watch Pixar flics. Think Toy Story with pharms (ahem, or so I hear).

I ran across your blog while surfing last week and i've been reading along ever since. I was kinda bummed when I couldn't find it, gave it a try again tonight and there it was like an old friend I never knew I had, or they never you we had or something? Either i'm stoked you've returned thought maybe you had fallen off the wagon or something anyway. I saw a children's movie this weekend also, I too was really high, I was flipping out trying to figure out why there were sooo many damn kids in the theatre

you’re so funny! And your hair looks fabulous curly and enough with my cooing right now! I saw Asobi Seksu (thanks to your roomies recommendation) last night and I wanted to dance the night away. Issac is the new Julian since he’s engaged now. Is Issac married? I need to go to work now. UGH.

If I didn't know better, I'd think my roommate just told thousands of people what my current makeout music is!

You make out to Modest Mouse? Jesus, Lindsay, you're really taking that hipster thing too far.

Best, etc.,
