In a wierd sort of wired-on-caffeine-but-also-still-really-tired daze this morning, and while there's not a hell of a lot of work for me to do just yet, the internet is moving incredibly slowly today, which is pissing me off just enough to keep me from falling asleep. Plus, it's rather warm in here, but if I take off my wool sweater, my white button-down shirt will have tons of little woolly strands all over it, creating more of a dirty hippie look than I care to present right now.

I have no idea if the preceeding paragraph made any sense.

Last week I was all for a military response against the Taliban; now that it's actually happening, all I can think about is their retaliation. I'm very much on edge. Because of course New York City is the most obvious target, even though we already got hit hard. I'm trying very hard not to be too paranoid. Still, though, it's hard to relax when you've got maniacs running around with dangerous weapons with no rational sense of morality.

Enough, enough, I don't want to think about it anymore. I just want it to go away.

Last night my sampler started fucking up again, which is all I need right now. My gig - Jesus, I have a gig - is in 10 days. I really want to get recording; I also really want to start a band again. I miss playing loud, with other people, grooving and listening and jamming and fucking rocking out. I've been in need of a cathartic experience ever since 9/11, and jamming with a drum machine over headphones isn't quite it.

Um. Everyone seems to be listening to Jeff Buckley these days. That's not a bad idea...

Amy Poehler joining the cast of SNL is a good thing, even if the writers don't know it yet. I suspect that when you're an SNL rookie, you tend to get crappy parts until you've proven you have big-time stuff. 2 episodes in, she's already starting to get more prominently featured parts - her "porn star" bit the other night was easily the highlight of what was otherwise a really mediocre show, even if Will Ferrell did a whole segment wearing a red, white and blue thong.

Goddamn today is slow. And goddamn this company's internet service - nothing is loading, IM is busted, the whole thing is a goddamned travesty.

Tonight - was originally planning on going to Luna Lounge's comedy night but I think instead I'm gonna go home, not spend any money, and fix my sampler. Plus, kayhoe tells me that Jack Black will be on Who Wants to Be a Millionnaire tonight. I thought I'd be able to live my whole life without ever watching that show; I guess I'll have to be wrong.

Baseball playoffs start on Wednesday - A's vs. Yankees. Here's my bold prediction: if the Yankees can somehow beat the A's, they're gonna win the whole damn thing.
