Time for lunch.
Yeah, it came to a grinding halt there.

I was a bit preoccupied as I got a message from a member of one of the obscure Kiwi bands I have managed to dig up.

if i weren't so tired i would really want to get in a car and crank up 1985-03-21 Chicago and sing along as loud as I could. However I have neither a car nor the capacity to drive safely right now. The alternatives suck: crappy laptop speakers that are no fun to listen to the boot on, or screaming along to headphones so that I sound like a fucking lunatic to passersby.

Then again, at this point in finals, it would not be unreasonable for a senior here to sound like a fucking lunatic.

I expect I sound like a lunatic if any of my neighbours have heard me singing when I've had my windows open and stuff.

I mean, Porcupine Tree's Strip The Soul? "Strip the soul! KILL THEM ALL!"

They'd think I'm fucking nuts.

Also, holy shit, I'm liking this business of having a cane. I just went for a short walk to take out the rubbish. Now, it's about 2:30am here. The lighting outside is rather weak. I'm realising that unconsciously, I always walk with my head tilted towards the ground, trying to see obstacles. With the cane swinging along the ground ahead of me, I can look straight up and ahead, facing where I'm going. It's great, and sure to do wonders for my posture. I just love walking with it.

yeah well, these people know me...

I might scream it out anyway. I would actually just like to literally scream as stress relief, but that might cause some alarm.

I can just imagine the scene when you have some death metal blasting.

here's the rope

in some ways my school has given me enough to hang myself, every day.

sorry, i probably sound really dramatic. i'm just stressed to the top, sick and in pain, exhausted, and in a euphoric/mourning phase for the class and era i just finished

I love Zoo Station from the first Vertigo Tour gig. "I'm ready for the ball and the ... bat/I'm ready for the ac-ro-bat".
