Oh, wow. It’s nice: Pre-summer music mix and other tales

May 6, 2011

I’m sitting on my back porch and the sun is setting behind me. It’s a damn fine evening. I’m drinking New Belgium Somersault and cooking a hodgepodge potato casserole. I get to review a show tonight — tUnE-yArDs at the Jackpot. Earlier this week I reviewed Joe Pug. It was one of those shows that is unexpectedly awesome.

*turns around*

Oh, gross. There’s a colony of ants behind me.

I still haven’t watched two of the three Netflix movies I’ve rented. Instead I’m re-watching the entire series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And Deathproof. And Phenomena. It’s a monster filled blood fest.

I’ve been looking for a new place to live. My Lawrence lease is almost up. I’ve had a hell of a time finding a house or an apartment. Every place is in the wrong location, too beige or far away. Also, do you guys know how expensive it is to move? Sure,  you can get all your dude friends to muscle up and move your stuff in exchange for a few six packs and some pizza. But security deposits — holy SHIT! And pet deposits — triple horse SHIT! It’s frustrating and insane. Most places are not near worth the price that’s being charged. You probably already know all of this and so do I, but every time I move I re-realize it. Like re-living some terrible trauma that happened in a dark basement every. Fucking. YEAR!

*turns around again*

Oh, shit. They’re gone (They being the ants.)!

Yes, I realize I’m rambling, but it’s been a long week. I’ve been working early mornings and late nights. Sleep is scarce in these parts (the parts being my body. Ew.) I got a hair cut. I look weird. I always look weird, but now I look double weird. I also got some new lipstick. It’s fab. And it wasn’t tested on animals. Seriously. Don’t buy products that are tested on animals. It’s not cool. Did you know that a lot of companies that test on animals use beagles as test subjects? Dear, sweet little beagles. I find that information terrible.

I’ve stayed overnight at my parent’s house twice this week. I’ve had a ton of appointments in Kansas City and gas is expensive. It’s been interesting. I ate a lot of free lunches. I saw my dentist during one lunch. That was pretty awesome, though, because I was wearing my molar earrings (yes, I own molar earrings and wear them.) He totally flipped!

Anyway, congrats if you’ve made it this far. This blog was absolute crap.
