The Decembrists Show
It was quite good, although it was hot as hell in that club and they din't let you smoke in there anymore. The band had a bass fiddle and their keyboard player often switched to an accordian. And they sang a song about pirates. I like pirates.
And I had a day off the next day. It was odd to have a day off in the middle of the week. But I slept late and I loved it.
However, it was the first time since the air conditioner was installed that I was home in the heat of the day, so I ran the unit a lot. Late in the afternoon I realised that the condensation was running down inside the wall and seeping through the plaster under the windowsill. The plaster was doing that flakey, feathery thing.

All Sorts of Funny Thoughts Wind Round My Head
I'm going to see a rock show tonight with Ed. I haven't seen a band play live in over a year. That last time was Camper Van Beethovan. I used to see bands a lot. I'm feeling nostalgic for those days. I'm also looking forward to going to the Cat's Cradle to see this, and it has become an unfamiliar feeling, to look forward to seeing a band in the evening.

The Power of Water
I have gotten addicted to water. I crave it now. I started drinking a lot of water when I cut back on caffiene. I used to drink coffee all day, and I do mean all day. I started wondering if I'd sleep better if I cut it out. Now I have one cup of coffee first thing and then I switch to water. And I have been amazed how much better I feel when that water kicks in after the coffee. I had two cups of coffee today because I had a meeting. We had three things to discuss and it took an hour and a half.
I've even started keeping a glass of water handy when I drink beer.

I stayed up too late last night. I can't believe I made it through the day.
