- eliminate caffiene as much as possible
- eliminate alcohol entirely
- write down the thoughts that are racing in my head. deal with them later
- have sex
Okay. Number one -- no problem. I usually have a coffee in the morning and some sodas at work, but I don't need the caffienated sodas. Number two -- slight problem. I'm not a heavy drinker, but I like to enjoy a few brews now and then. After all, I work at a freakin' brewery! Number three -- no problem writing it down, but I'm not sure how much that's going to help. Number four -- it isn't like I'm abstaining from sex by choice. I could try harder. Well, to be honest, trying at all would be trying more than I am now.
I was also prescribed with halcion . I took it for the first time last night, and I have to say that although it certainly helped me sleep, I hate the way I feel right now. I don't know if this is just a coincidence, but my head is pounding. Has been all day. Grrr.
Last night, I went to the video store and rented Morvern Callar , which I thought was horrible. Aside from the fact that they had such thick (presumably) Scottish accents that it was incomprehensible, I just didn't care for it that much. I had the day off today, so I took myself to see Sideways , which I thought was incredible. The dialog was great, the story was good, and the pace was perfect. To boot, the soundtrack featured Luna, which is a big plus in my book. During the previews, there was one that looked pretty decent. Can't remember the name of it, but it was about a dysfunctional family. Not quite like Ordinary People, but messed up nonetheless. Anyway, it looked decent until I saw the desperate cry for hipness : the inclusion of The Postal Service in the trailer. Bad, bad, bad. Don't get me wrong. I love The Postal Service, but I think they've gotten way too much play in movies. It isn't cool anymore. Remeber a few years ago when every car commercial had a Fatboy Slim song in it? That's what I think is going on with The Postal Service. Oh well
The NHL brass are meeting in tonight, and all indicaters are that the players union has scheduled a meeting for next Thursday to make a proposal to the owners. A boost for optimism!
