come on feel the twee!


Last night I got four hours of bad sleep total. I was up late with Michael and his friend Laura, listening to the (suprisingly loud for a twee Scottish band) but completely wonderful Camera Obscura at Tipitina's.

They were great, but then I knew they would be.
And there was a good crowd for a Wednesday night, but I fear I'm getting way too old for such things. Ok, so I've always been too old for such things. Now time is just catching up, you know?

I'd practically lost my voice the day before, a very sexy cold sore was on its way...and the late night meal of a two inch thick hamburger from the Port of Call and a baked potato that must have had a half a stick of butter on it pushed me over the edge.

Oh, but it was so good.
I came out dazed and confused, mute...and a now nearly deaf, one and a half steps away from Helen Keller-hood.



All things considered, I held up pretty well today at work...I didn't die or anything. Now however it's time to pay the piper. I'm even skipping the finale of Project Runway, practically the only tv I watch. It's been kind of boring anyway, and I can read about it tomorrow, right? Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going put myself into a Robitussin coma, and try to sleep away the cold sore.

Hope you feel better. Live by my motto: "Better living through chemistry."
In other news...I agree Project Runway has totally sucked this season. I didn't even watch the finale and I didn't really care. It used to be good and trash fun. Bah!

Memories of Tipitina's.

*stares wistfully into the distance*

Oh I hope you feel better soon and didn’t have a date lined up, nothing says no second date like a cold sore.

On a totally related note I didn’t know the Port’o Call was serving cold sores?

You’ll feel right as rain after inducing a Robitussin coma.

And in that state, perhaps you’ll even we-deco-wait the twee.

Jason!

Interesting band choice! The lead singer does indeed have an accent but she doesn't sound Scottish to me. Hmmm......

I hope you're feeling better!
