I'm not necessarily out of the woods just yet, but I do want to pat myself on the back - I got myself out of the house for the last 4 days.

Thursday:  long-overdue and much needed drinks with Mike.
Friday:  totally unexpected and very enjoyable drinks with my new neighbor, hydrozoa.
Saturday:  Kath and I went to see Juno, and then discovered 2 organic grocery stores along 30th Avenue.
Sunday:  Last holiday party of the year, at Devin and KB's.

Good times, plus the Giants totally kicked ass.  That said, my stomach is killing me this morning, which is odd since I barely ate anything yesterday.

This week should be very interesting; Wednesday is a rehearsal for Saturday's auditions (I'm helping an old friend put a recording project together), and what's interesting about that is that it will be the first time that me, Joe, Rey and Kenny will have been together, in a room, with instruments, in maybe 10 years.  I'm trying to not make a big deal out of it, but it is pretty significant, for reasons that I'll maybe get into later, probably privately.

Finally - I decided to use my $25 iTunes card on comedy albums by Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter.  MIB's album is pretty fucking hilarious; Mike Show's is a little uneven but still pretty solid.  ALSO:  finally tracked down The Field's "From Here We Go Sublime", and while I haven't finished it yet it's definitely doing interesting things to my brain.  ALSO ALSO:  Mike gave me a belated birthday gift - a 3-CD collection of John Cage's prepared piano pieces, which is very, very cool.

Work is starting to get crazy; I want to talk about Juno, and some other things, but can't do it right now.

    So I guess I'm retiring this blog. Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already.…

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
