Put the repeat marks on it, another sun n' clouds day. Mostly cloudy as I look out the window. In bed at 12:25, up around 8:30. Same old same old.
I seem to be remembering a lot of stuff this morning. Not necessarily anything important, just data- stuff I read or heard someplace. Lines from Portnoy's Complaint: Alex is talking about his sister Hannah, and how she gets together with another big, homely girl named Edna Tepper(who has, however, to recommend her, tits the size of my head). And other memories..
And it contains my favorite little bit of alliteration, when Alex talks about the hypocrisy of his life: publicly pleasing my parents while privately pulling my putz.
I read a lot of books when I was 17 years old, and much of what i read is gone. Portnoy, however(to recommend him)is ineradicably situated in the annals of memory.
Ineradicably? Is dat a woid? I thought so. Unable to eradicate. Oh well..
A Dentist's appointment today in about an hour. It's just an hour out of my day, but you're a little bit screwed for awhile from the novocaine. But at least it adds structure to my week.
A fair amount of picking yesterday, and with it, some cuts that might just make their ways onto my YouTube page. With the construction work going on in my basement these past couple weeks, it was impossible to practice. The hammering and sawing and just other presences in the house militated against any kind of musicmaking. So I'm making up for lost time this week. Chops always return..
And that's my news for this Wednesday morning. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy hump day, if that means anything. More later.
