For the 5th day in a row, it appears that I won't have any work to do. Now, ordinarily I'd be totally fine with that - I don't really feel like doing any work anyway. But after a while, I start to get paranoid that I'm so un-busy. Like I should be creating work for myself. Except there's really nothing for me to do. Honestly. I'm looking around my desk right now, and aside from sending a few pieces of paper via interoffice mail, everything seems to be in order...

Yesterday, during my lunch break, I discovered that there's a Sam Goody on 42nd St. - and it's right next to this mini-alley that I can cut through, so it takes me about 45 seconds to get there. So today I'm pickin' up a bunch o' stuff - the new Wilco, White Stripes, Walkmen, and Microphones (if they have them, which yesterday they didn't). [If you have any recommendations - and I'm sure you do - please send 'em my way, as I'm looking to do some serious damage today.] Oh, and I'm gonna get a new set of ass-kicking headphones, too.

Speaking of which, last night I realized that ever since my discman's headphones broke about a month ago, I've lived in a musicless universe. Which is why I'm so terribly excited to pick up some kick-ass headphones and some new music to test them out with.

What else, what else... I know there's something else... um... nope, can't think of it. The pot I've been smoking recently is fantastic stuff, but it's been making my mornings waaaaaay too cloudy.

Oh yeah - news on the eyeglasses - I get a pretty kickass discount on eyeglasses and other eye-related expenses through my company health plan, but I can't cash in unless I have my health plan card. I don't get the card for another month. So, more blindness awaits.

Today's shopping list is shaping up nicely, if a bit on the huge side. But keep in mind that I'm going to a Sam Goody's, so they might not have any of this crap:

Wilco, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
Walkmen, Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me is Gone
Microphones, The Glow, Pt. 2
White Stripes, White Blood Cells
XTC, Coat of Many Cupboards OR Apple Venus Vol. 2
Aesop Rock, Labor Days
Gomez, In Our Gun
Deltron 3030
Miles Davis, Jack Johnson
Elvis Costello, the new one or one of the reissues... [blergeatkitty, any particular one?]

Now I remember why I don't shop at Sam Goody's anymore. They had nothing, and what they did have was priced at $18. So I picked up Wilco, Deltron3030, and headphones, which came to over $50. Yargh.

Tonight - more insane record shopping. I'm determined to get the Microphones. Plus a bunch of the stuff I couldn't get this afternoon - White Stripes, XTC, Aesop Rock, Gomez.

I'm already getting excited about the weekend - the woman and I are heading up to my mom's house to play with the new dog. We've been having dog fever for a year now, and it'll be nice to get out of the city, too.

It'll be nice to get out of work, too. God, what a shitty day.
