Gravity Always Wins

Yet another SharynLifeFAILâ„¢. I should know better, really, but once again I’ve been bitchslapped by fate. The roommate who was going to move in today didn’t. At the last minute he found cheaper digs, closer to where he works. No hard feelings, really. Just a heaping helping of disappointment. I should have known it couldn’t be that easy, that a suitable roommate wouldn’t just fall into my lap, so to speak. I will have to make more of an effort. And after going over the numbers this afternoon it will have to be soon. But I like to think of myself as a weeble. I may wobble, but I don’t fall down.

I plan to take the night off from stress and distress. Going to see Nomo at The Whole soon, followed by Retribution Gospel Choir at the 501 Club. I approve of staggered set times at venues that aren’t too far from one another.

Tomorrow is the big Cinco de Mayo parade within walking distance of home. The lowrider cars have always made giggle. Some old photos of mine were used in a story today on Minnesota Public Radio’s site: Lowrider car show a celebration of culture, creativity. After reading that I couldn’t help but notice this article: Swine flu fears won’t stop Cinco de Mayo celebrations. I hadn’t thought to worry, but now I can’t get it out of my head. And today I feel a little achey. It’s the hypochondria kicking in (and seasonal allergies). Must shake it.


Bonus: It’s another super busy weekend in the metro area with Cinco de Mayo, Heart of the Beast May Day, and the Walker’s Free First Saturdays. But tomorrow is also Free Comic Book Day!
Plus: Was talking with a co-worker friend who is also a fan of Hayao Miyazaki. He clued me into Joe Hisaishi, the composer who scores all of Miyazaki’s films. Great stuff. Another film composer, Yann Tiersen, performed here recently. Heard it was an excellent show.
And: More additions have finally been announced for ATP NY. The highlights for me? Boredoms performing 9 drummer BOREDRUM and Caribou performing as Caribou Vibration Ensemble.

    Gan, good to see you yesterday! Seems like we both had a lot of BUSY this weekend.

    Shokufeh, yeah, I was pretty psyched too. I do have a temporary roommate tentatively lined up for the month of July. But hoping that something more permanent will pan out.
