i boo this real world, non-weekend business, heartily. friday night the party was good, but not great...although everyone seemed to have a really good time, and we got lots of people out, i guess i was over-tired and just wanted everything to be over. promoting is just very stressful and ultimately, i think i'm just too old to be doing all this...especially when my co-promoter is in scotland for the year, and i'm left working with his flunkies, who quite frankly, suck...it's basically i have to do 90% of the work on my own, and then babysit the fragile, seratonin-deprived, hung-over psyches of the people i'm working with. that's too much work!
saturday we rolled around on the couch all day, then went out to dinner with some great friends. we ate at el sol, this gem of a mexican restaurant on the east side, at danforth and coxwell. the only downside used to be that the service was painfully slow...but things are so much better now! and the food is amazing. i always have the tacos dorados with chorizo. the chorizo is extra crumbly and mildly spicy, the corn tortillas are freshly fried, and the refried beans and rice are amazing. i love it there. then i made a brief appearance at this dubstep show. dubstep is very hit or miss for me...the atmospherics imply a higher bpm than the actual breaks and bass would indicate. i find it very difficult to get into a groove and dance to it...which is a shame, cuz the bass is so sick! some of the stuff they played while i was there had some amen-y early-hardcore ish fills that were awesome, but if you're going to do that...then it's basically following the path to jungle all over again. basically, if they gave me 20 more bpm, it would be righteous.
sunday i worked, then we started watching "battlestar galactica" !!!!!!!!! holy crap! best show ever!!!!!!! it's like terminator 2 but longer...and it deals with all these moral/ethical issues. frackin' A! i was feeling kind of beaten up from the weekend, so i cancelled my movie plans for the evening, and stayed in and marathoned that. best call, ever. last night i made that macaroni and cheese with all the cheese odds and ends. it was quite tasty...although i should have extracted more of the liquid from the spinach after sauteeing, before adding to the pasta mixture.
i think tonight is going to be leftovers night. i'm working rather late at this library branch i'm none to fond of. other than that...i'm counting down the days until reading week starts!!!
