I get knocked down, but I stay there
I finally saw Enon! They had a record release show last night at Luxx, although I was so drunk I forgot all about buying the record. I'll get it eventually. There were a lot of people there who looked vaguely familiar, other Ohioans who made it to Brooklyn. Always nice to see. It was way too crowded for me to try to talk to John, the lead singer, to see if he remembers me from his college days before he was a rockstar.

My lesson for the night: don't drink a combination of Sierra Nevada, Brooklyner Weisse, and Jameson's Irish Whiskey (and in that order). Sure, you'll get drunk in a most pleasant way, but the next day ... whoa. This day has totally been lost. I overslept and woke up in several kinds of pain. I tried to work but trying to read words on a computer screen was giving me intense malaise. So I slept most of the day away (well, when I wasn't barfing or writhing in agony, much to the kittens' delight). Now I'm trying to get enough work done so that nobody yells at me. Actually that's my normal attitude during a workday.

I'll have a pint with you, Sir!
Yes! I'm totally organizing something like this here. Listen up, Brits! We're going to every bar in Brooklyn and we won't stop until we've been to them all, from Alibi to Zombie Hut. See? Nihilism can be fun! At least for the people doing it (sounds like other bar patrons don't enjoy barfing Britons).

God bless Ohio
Wow, Ohio is kind of a fucked up place, isn't it? We got Amish guys throwing tomatoes at cars, and one of those drivers retaliating by shooting the Amish. Great. They don't know who fired the shotgun, but I have a suspicion. You just don't throw tomatoes at Cadillacs when you live so close to Youngstown. Especially a Caddy driving through an anonymous country road. It's just not wise.

Glad I live in the relative calm of Brooklyn, where we need only worry about the Hassidim throwing things at us.

20 eyes in my head, and they're all ... infected
I want to buy a car, if only for one reason: to find a vet who doesn't make me wait for hours for a 2 minute exam. They tricked me this morning into thinking they had no other appointments, so I went in at 10 AM. I came out at 1 PM. 3 friggin' hours. I knew what the kitten needed. It's the white one, his eyes are still sort of messed up. I knew that he needed oral antibiotics, at this point they should just give me license to write my own cat prescriptions, it's almost always the same thing: Clavamox. The vet prescribes it for everything, from Hubcap's abscess to Decatur's "Fever of Unknown Origin." 1001 uses.

So now the question that looms is "Do I keep working until 8 PM tonight, to make up for all the lost time?" I think we all know the answer to that.

Rainy Days and Mondays always get me psychotic
Whoa, what a disappointment it is to return to work after a mostly worthwhile weekend. 3-day weekends are great but they are just long enough to make you forget you have a job that is doing its best to become the most time-consuming tedium ever imagined. Plus, Mother Nature has decided to flip us the bird and immediately switch back over to lame weather, which is a little depressing (maybe I'll sit under my electrotherapy lamp!).

He's mighty mighty just lettin' it all hang out
Two years ago today, God took 21 pounds of clay and made us a cat. Happy birthday, Mr. Bones! Today you can eat all the grass you want, and we will limit comments making light of your weight to one per person.

Also, happy birthday to Juli!
