I don't miss you half as much as you made me think i was

So, Sergei sure loves the word "dungarees." I think it's funny, because my mom has a habit of calling jeans dungarees, and I have sorta picked up on it, and every now and again, I will say "dungarees" and actually mean it. I bring this up only because Sergei was ribbing me for not having updated since AUGUST FOURTH! Where have I been? I don't know. What have I been doing? None of your beeswax. Actually, I've been avoiding sitting at the computer for long periods of time during the heatwaves (this room and the bathroom lack air conditioning), and mostly watching "Friends" on DVD in the coolness of the downstairs a/c. I have now finished all four available seasons of "Friends" on DVD. I don't care what anyone says; it is an amazing show. Simply amazing.

On the subject of Sergei, all his talk about sleeping echoes true in my world as well. I am great at staying awake and a viking at sleeping, but I am terrible at actually falling asleep or waking up. Even when I worked "normal" hours, I would stay up until 2 or 3 in the morning, and get up for work at 7am. But I could do that because the sun existed in that world. It was dark when I went to sleep and light when i woke up (mostly). Now it is light out when I go to work and light out when I come home from work. In the winter, I don't see sunlight at all. In the summer, I barely see the night. And no matter when you go to sleep, waking up at 5pm just feels wrong.

But, back to fun...Saw Come Down put on an amazing show at the Knitting Factory on Thursday night. They played their set before headliners Elefant, who were quite good, as well, although, I missed some of their set while wandering with Lisa to find food. That ended up being a fruitless search, by the by. I was so freakin' hungry. The one thing missing from the area surrounding the Knitting Factory is a late night eatery. One of you should open one up and tell me about it. I had such a great time, nonetheless. I drove in with my new friend Lisa, and got to introduce her to way too many people at once. But she handled it with grace and aplomb...and some wine.

All in all, a great time was had by many. Thanks again to Come Down for bringing the rock, and to my friends for rocking, too. Booyaka!
