Neko Case - This Tornado Loves You
Today was not a day where things come easily or naturally. I almost rear-ended several cars on the 405 en route to the courthouse (wretched place.) Heading downtown, I couldn’t stop my mind from singing “Goin’ to the courthouse and I’m gonna get unmarried”. Wretched, I tell you.
I’m wrapping up a busy week and heading into part two of the summer, in which I go home for the longest amount of time since I graduated ten years ago. Perhaps more on that later, perhaps not.
Now I get to head back downtown to Fedora which happens to be right next to the courthouse. I’ll have paid a whopping $37 to parking lot attendants by the end of today; should have just stayed bawling in my car for three hours until rehearsal.
It gets better right? I do have my health. I mean, my doctor did call me yesterday to tell me my good cholesterol levels (whatever that means) are the highest he had ever seen in a patient. Which I think was his way of telling me I’m magic. And we have a show tomorrow night that I’m pretty stoked about.
Alright, rest o’summer, let’s do this.
