mouse update:

so i go to make a bagel this morning. as i'm about to put it in the toaster, what comes jumping out of it? tiny little bulgy-eyed grey-haired mouse. fuck! it was eating the crumbs inside my toaster! i cleaned it out, but i lost my appetite. i don't know when the next time i make toast will be. which sucks cause i just bought some perfectly tasty montreal bagels and old-fashioned cream cheese.

so i set 2 traps: one humane one that keeps them alive and one of those old school ones that looks like some killing device from WW1. aaaaaaand we finally caught one. in the deadly trap. which is sad, but we gave that fucker a chance. and he was being a terrorist.

those 1$ hollywood brand cigarettes i got in cuba last year have come in handy. i'm not a smoker otherwise, but this is why these things were invented: for poor girls with anxiety who have occasional mouse terrorist issues in their apartments.

yup. definitely moving this july.

I have a paper to write on psychoneuroimmunology (i.e. the effect the brain has on your body and health.)

i rather drink wine and watch bad tv.

it's a sleeping pill night.

so i started having insomnia about 10 months ago... i'd just go 4 days without sleep and then blissfully pass out eventually. I saw a doctor and she gave me something for anxiety / depression, which made me feel worse. probably cause i'm not depressed. so i stopped taking that shit. the sleep was on and off for a while. another doctor gave me these pills that look like tiny blue footballs and they knock me out just fine, i just can't take them too often cause they'll stop working. so tonight's a no pill night.

so that's that.

i saw a mouse in my room a few minute ago so i got the fuck out of there. scott's coming over the kill it. what a trooper, that lovely man. i mean it's past midnight. i'm staying in the living room till he arrives like some pathetic damsel. what has happened to me? i used to be so tough! fucking plateau apartments... if it's not the mice, it's the awful neighbors, or the lack of light or the street noise and high rent.. you get screwed in so many ways, but the neighborhood is so much better than any other place in this city. i'm gonnna hold out as long as i can.

now excuse me.
my savior has arrived with a small bucket and a pair of working gloves.

- The DJ thing at Korova is doing really well, last wednesday there were over 50 people, i'm not exagerrating. Wednesdays are the new Thursdays.

- I'm probably going to move in with Amber in July, we're looking at places in the plateau because i can't live anywhere else in this city.

- my bursary ends this month and so my glory days of being unemployed are soon to be over. i will be looking for a job soon (and maybe even work at HMV for minimum wage again. fuck, minimum wage blows. ) I'm also thinking of working at the Jazz Fest or doing projection for the Festival des Films du Monde (20$ an hour!)

- I went to the Sebadoh concert last night and it was nice to see an older crowd at a show. EXCEPT for the fact that I noticed emo haircuts just turn into emo comb-overs when men get old.

- I'm working at the elections tomorrow all day. Once again, I will be the Deputy Returning Officer (meaning i sit at a table and give people their voting ballots. then i count the votes at the end of the day). 250$ for a day of work is pretty fucken decent.

- I got to see the David Suzuki / Al Gore lecture on Thursday. I had a crush on David Suzuki when i was little and CBC was the only channel we had. Later on when I was 19 I dated a guy who looked like a young version of him for 2 and a half years. True story. The lecture was great, by the way.

- I need to leave this internet cafe.

I'm making a blown-up drawing of Marianne Faithfull for my studio arts class. it's coming along slowly.

I heard on CKUT that there will be a glam rock party at Mile End Bar during the winter break. (You need to dress up!!!). That is the best thing i've heard of in ages, i hope i didn't hallucinate it.

I miss wearing skirts. I seriously think i've been wearing the same pear of jeans for the past 3 weeks.

I stayed up and partied last friday until 6 am. It was fun.. Haven't done that in a while. and then I remembered why: I felt like shit and cried for no reason during the whole weekend. No sleep + alcohol = i'm fuckin cranky.  Also, I stopped taking the pill for the month of January, and I haven't felt any difference except for the stupid moods swings. I forgot that I get those. So I'm gonna suck it up and make an appointment. ugh, I hate doctors, especially this one (he touches my boobs! wtf? don't expect me to believe you're checking for lumps)..

In other news:
If you hit a squirrel with your car, Morrissey says you should check if it's really dead.

concert shit:
explosions in the Sky March 23rd @ le National
The Roots are on March 25th (37$!!!)
got my Bloc Party ticket (March 27, 35$. yeah, i know.)

The cold makes me want to do nothing but stay home and watch the L Word. I'm gonna drag my lazy ass to the pool and swim a few laps.....

Went to the Wheel Club on Monday for hillbilly night. It's so refreshingly different than the usual hangouts. And I love hearing the older crowd tell stories from the past. If you feel like becoming a regular with me, it's every Monday, on Cavendish and Sherbrooke.

Also: Korova (St-Laurent) plays really good music on Wednesdays. Hearing Kick out the Jams, Chinese Rocks, some songs by the Buzzcocks and many old favourites took me back to when I was reading Please Kill Me by Legs McNeil years ago. Too bad the place was dead. I would have danced.

K-Fed has a new ad (more than I expected)

Oh, and I really want to see this:

We had to draw nude models in my studio arts class. it was interesting. I recognized the model, though. It was the guy who walks around in stilts in metro stations. He's a performer. Some of you have had to see him at one point. Well the next time you do, you'll know what his side job is.
