I got to see Spider Man today. It wasn't bad.|
I got a large Invader Zim doll. His head is grotesquely large compared to his body.
I was given many quarters to get Homies out of a vending machine. I got one of the chicas, yay!
I just drank a Celebrator - Fine Bavarian Double Bock. It was gooood.

Too much time on my hands...|
Maybe I should clean my apartment.
I get to see Spider-man tomorrow (whether I want to or not) for my b-day.

Today was better than yesterday.|
-late for a meeting at work
-John (the boss) was mad
-I got a write-up (I insisted. Why should I not although I manage one of the stores.)
-felt like a heel all day 'cause I can't seem to get out off bed more than forty-five minutes before work.
-the store didn’t make lot's 'o $$$$
-got up at 9:00am and got to work early.
-John's not mad at me.
-all the customers were nice.
-not too many weirdos wandered in.
-some woman asked me what music was playing. I responded with pride, En Esch-Cheesy. She had me write it down.
-people bought a lot of cool but useless stuff.
-I realized I only have one more day of work before my seven day paid vacation. Wooooooooo...

So as an early birthday gift to myself I went to Seattle on Friday to see Haujobb, VNV Nation, and Converter. |
12:30pm-I wake up and start getting ready to leave
3:00pm-get paid from work and go deposit my check
3:30pm-arrive at the train station and buy a return ticket to Portland
4:00pm-meet up with Michelle and Kiisu who were my ride to Seattle
5:00pm-on I-5 north
6:45pm-hit the worst of the traffic jams. A semi had jack-knifed on I-5 south and had hit some of the concrete barriers onto I-5 north. We had to detour.
8:45pm-We finally pulled up in front of the Catwalk
9:00pm- 1:30am-was spent enjoying the show, chatting with friends and acquaintances, working on getting drunk, and harassing some passed-out rivethead
1:30am-caught a ride to Bad Juju, a rocker bar up by Musicwerks and met up with my friends Shelby and Heather
1:40am-pounded two pints of Mirror Pond Pale Ale when I found out beer-thiry was at 2:00...this was not a good idea...
3:00am-discovered watching anime with sub-titles is not easy when stinking drunk
4:00am-passed out cold at Shelby's place...
Enough with the timeline…
We all woke at 10:30am. I was massively hung over. I think I mixed too many beers. eeewww...
As sick as I was I still wanted to go to Musicwerks and get a certain cd. Before that though we decided to go to a IHOP for breakfast. I sat in the restaurant fighting my nausea the entire time. I managed to get some apple juice and hash browns down. When it came time to pay our checks the manager was counting down the till. I was forced to wait nearly 20 minutes before I could pay for my meal. After I paid my check I promptly went outside and "refunded" the hash browns and apple juice in the flower bed.
By 4:00pm I had gotten my cd and headed to the train station. I was on my way home at 5:25pm. Instead of sleeping on the train like I intended, I watched The Count of Monte Cristo. Still slightly hung over, I arrived at home by 9:30pm happy to be back in Portland.

So today Daniel Ash of Love and Rockets/Bauhaus fame was next door to my work doing a record signing. I had him sign an old Love and Rockets 12" single I've had in my "vaults". Anyhow I told him that I wished I could make it to his show tonight but I'm too broke. He responded with "Is that so? I've no one on the guest list. I'll put you on it" Unfortunately I worked until 7pm tonight and didn't feel like braving the public transit across town on it's screwed-up Saturday schedule. Thanks Daniel for making me feel all warm and fuzzy today.|
Now if only Nick Cave would come in tomorrow and do the same thing. His show at the Crystal Ballroom tomorrow night would be a lot easier to get to.
Beer fest last night was fun regardless of the fact that I had to hang with an ex-boyfriend.
