rough notes

26. lethargy

leave a comment »

goddamn i’m feeling tired and lethargic today.  not nearly as tired and lethargic as the manimals were in yesterday’s small humid spell that fell upon the peninsula (the cats moved so little that i could have drawn chalk outlines around their bodies), but still very much run down.  staying up somewhat late after having some drinks on henry house’s new patio with some old BA-friends could possibly be the reason.

henry house’s new patio is pretty swank.  well, not really swank, but definitely fitting for the pub and the neighbourhood.  Its colours and textures completely fit in with its surroundings, and their beer tastes just as good outside as it does inside.  I did feel kind of bad for the people whose apartments and balconies abut the space, but on the other hand, I was a little jealous of the fact that the pub is also their next door neighbour, so i suppose it all balances out in the end.

two nights ago i woke up in the midst of a dream that should be turned into a short story.  don’t worry – i won’t give details of the dream, because dreams are always fricking ridiculous until they can be put to paper.  i just wanted to announce that i love those moments that come upon us, those moments that fool us into thinking we are indeed capapable of having moments of sheer brilliance.  mind you, i am brilliant, but i don’t usually notice it until after the moment has come and gone and faded into memory.  so feeling the capability of sheer brilliance is always a bit of a mindspell and ego-boost.

it occurred to me this morning that my summer contract marking papers will likely finish at the end of july as opposed to the end of august.  this doesn’t bode well.  i’ll find ways to make due through august, but i’d much rather deal with comma splices and passive sentence constructions than retail or hospitality to pay the bills.

the pineapples and i have been having a coffee crisis these past couple months, and it’s not getting any better.  we love the coffee, and it loves us.  but we’re low on the income, so we can’t afford to buy the tastiest of tasty coffees.  Lately we’ve been begrudgingly (to lay on the adverbs) switching from one can of mass-produced/roasted beans after another, and we haven’t been able to find something that works for both of our palettes as well as our wallet.  the only solution to our dilemma, of course, is to rob a bank.
