What made all that really tough was that I had promised Welsh Girl that I'd win one for her. When I came home depressed that I failed her, let's just say she took that opportunity to cheer me up and leave it at that. :)
I've picked up a bunch of CDs in the last two weeks or so. I ended up with, among other things, three Leonard Cohen CDs. Now I like Leonard Cohen a lot, but I learned an important truth. Leonard Cohen songs are great but Leonard Cohen Albums (with the exception IMHO of The Future) are tedious. I find that particularly strange because on New Skin For The Old Ceremony, I like every song but it's hard to listen to the entire thing in a sitting. I also got a legit copy of Arcade Fire's Neon Bible. Not a bad album, but I think it's a sophomore slump kind of thing (even though several of the tracks are really good). I'll be seeing them at ACL Fest so woohoo me… More telling is that I can't being myself to fork over the money for The Forgotten Arm...
Did I forget to mention that we got our ACL Fest tickets? As soon as Welsh Girl learned Bjork was playing, it became #1 on the hit parade.
Strange question: I've noticed recently that my heart will start pounding while I'm sitting doing nothing special. This has only started in the last two weeks. It doesn't do it while I'm walking or starting to push myself, but I'll feel it in my chest while I’m just watching TV or waiting for a bus or reading or something… Anyone ever have this happen to them?
I've been thinking a lot about The Prisoner today. Maybe it's getting time to get a box set or something...
Less than a month to Hot-lanta and all systems are go.
The in-laws are coming to Austin this weekend. Since Welsh Girl is going to be working much of it, I'll be entertaining them for quite a bit of it. Tomorrow, we're planning on going to the O. Henry Pun-Off and then going to dinner when Welsh Girl gets off work. I foresee tomorrow being quite ap-pun-tizing or some kind of crap like that.
And that, I think, is all.
