8/8/07 11:06 pm - "... where is my mind?..."

so, from 10am monday until about 4pm earlier today, somewhere around 54 hours, i had a grand total of 3 hours of sleep... going from job, to job, to back to the other job, to back to the other job again, 3 days in a row leaves little time for rest...

finally, after yet another dose of sarahs valium, and getting off early from jj's, i got about 6 hours sleep, and am about to go back into midtown bowl again until 9am, and then go back into jimmy johns...

i dont remember if i said anything about it, but, ben kweller's show at unplugged in the park last sunday evening was really nice... free show, and he's a great performer...

reds are winning games again, and still out of the basement, cuz the pirates now suck worse than they do... ha...

see subject line for pixies style thoughts on how i feel at the moment...

8/4/07 03:30 pm - "... turn me on and turn me up and turn me loose i am alive and amplified..."

the mooney suzuki were excellent last night... great selection of past favs and alot from the new one have mercy... which is pretty good live, kinda has a feel of elvis costello meets creedence...

and guys before them leslie from charleston played some nice sexy bluesy dirty rocknroll like if the black crows got injected with the stooges and played 10 times faster and louder...

today is my first day off from both jobs in 2 weeks or so... ah, a good feeling to sleep in and be rested...

8/3/07 08:11 pm - "... what you get is electric sweat..."

i got a phat $30 tip on a catering order i did downtown today... made for a nice day in total tips...

i got a sweet pair of tax free 16.99 pair of shoes from ross that look alot like pumas... they're l.a. gears... yep, thats right, you heard me... and, yes, i also thought they werent making shoes anymore... i did have the old school high tops(double shoe strings/pumps) back in elem. and mid. school...

tonight: the mooney suzuki @ the earl... you will probably not be there, but, we will...

8/2/07 08:00 pm - "... stacked dead actors, stacked to the rafters, line up all the bastards, all i want is the truth"

love the new foo fighters single "the pretender" that premiered today... dave grohl can do no wrong...

also, new social distortion song on the radio... very nice...

along with the pumpkins "tarantula", i would say good rock is back on the radio for the first time in years...

my car surpassed 70,000 miles yesterday... its been through alot of trips and moving...

lots of work has driven me very listless... i have so little energy from constantly working a first and third shift job... but, i know its not all the time, since both are part time, and jj's should have another driver starting sunday...
but, with just me basically as lunchtime/early afternoon driver, i've worked all week, and thats right along with 8 straight days of midtown bowl, with my first day off from them happening this day...

my min. wage increase should be nice on this check, though...

my tips enabled us to go see the simpsons movie today... i liked it... funny, and a nice plot, that felt like a movie instead of a series of episodes...

tomorrow- the mooney suzuki @ the earl

sunday- ben kweller(free @ park tavern)

time to eat...

7/30/07 11:00 pm - "... and my time is a piece of wax..."

gettin' crazy with the cheez whiz would probably be a fun thing to do...

i made myself sick and had a breakdown in tears at one of my stops today at jimmy johns... so many call offs, me being the only driver, making runs all over town, being horribly late, cancellations, a diabetic getting mad at me for taking so long with her sandwich, all just hit me and i couldnt handle it anymore... i'm only one man, i can only do so much...

all that came after already working a 12am-9am shift this morning at midtown bowl before jj's, plus i gotta go back to midtown bowl here in about half an hour...

i dont feel good, lack of sleep is wearing me down...

also, i miss seeing sarah more than just a few hours a day...

lots of shows coming up, if we can afford them... also, simpsons movie remains unseen...

i really need a drink...

7/25/07 07:30 pm - "... requiem, sound the revolutions thunder..."

things at jimmy johns are picking back up... nice days sun., mon. and today... also, learned that as of yesterday, min. wage went up $.70, which means a hell of a lot to me, very much needed and appreciated...

bought new bad religion album, new maps of hell... what can i say?... if you know one BR song, you know most all of them, but, i still like 'em... this one has back to six members with lots of layered guitars and plenty of oozin aahhs for background vocals, trademark of bad religion...

time for dinner, shower, and rest before midtown bowl shift...

7/23/07 04:28 pm - "... if you ever need anything please dont, hesitate to ask someone else first..."

the other day while at borders, i picked up nirvana's in utero(another one i had, but was stolen in december)... dave grohl hits the fucking skins with authority on this record...

so, i just had another very tiring stretch of hours... i got up and went to work @2:15pm yesterday until 11:30pm, went right into working midtown bowl from about 12:10am- 9am, then went right back into jimmy johns from 10:50am- 2pm... thats right, i almost worked a non stop 24 hours straight... wow... how am i still seeing straight?... sleep is coming within the hour...

yesterday and today were nice though @jj's... $78 in tips for sun. and $47 for today in just 3 hours of work...

seeing charles at the pro shop at midtown bowl tomorrow about getting by bowling balls redrilled, surfaced and inserted(including one that reggie gave me, sweet...) and asking about a cheap plastic one for sarah to have...

burger king gave me the hook up, they just started their simpsons talking figures collection today, and the lady rummaged through and i got to buy one of each available including the limited edition golden homer!... woohoo! ...

mxpx's new disc and bad religion's new disc will be mine by months' end...

7/19/07 08:32 pm - "... take me miles from home tonight..."

AA10 is being quite loud again...

i found red ants in our bathroom by our sink this morning, and management says they cant do anything until mon. the designated "pest spray" day...

my incident with the guys who came in around 4am at midtown bowl is putting my stomach in knots, i really am not looking forward to going back into work in a few hours...

ordering pizza hut was tasty, a good move on my part...

i did get some laundry finished...

it is hot, i dont feel well, and fonzie doesnt seem to care about much of anything, including your face...


on one plus note: i am loving this smoke or fire song right now... from the plea for peace vol. 2 set... (see current music)

7/18/07 12:40 am - i typed for miles...

sarah and i went to see the reds beat the braves a couple hours ago... bronson arroyo's 7 inning, 3 hit shutout was almost negated by the reds bullpen's fantastic ability to give up runs and lose(or in this case, almost lose) games... it was a good time...

jj's looms in the morning, then about 23 hours from now my midtown bowl shift...

sleep, oh, sleep, wherever may i find you?...

7/16/07 03:51 pm - "... 24 hours to go, i wanna be sedated..."

folx, i am now running on 32 straight hours of being awake... lots of work, and right now i'm disoriented/delerious with hunger/sleep apneia...

sore throat goes away, then clogged/runny/tender soreness nose action starts happening...


"... i cant control my fingers, i cant control my brain, oh, no... oh-oh-oh-oh..."
