my horoscope for today:
Your health should be in tiptop shape today, Shalini. You are likely to be feeling physically, emotionally, and spiritually strong, Shalini, and ready to tap into your inner power.
they forgot to include, "you will be extremely hungover today, shalini. why the fuck did you have to drink so much last night? and don't even attempt to conjure up some rational thoughts."
i guess it's okay to be completely useless, tho, today. it's been a long while since i got to just hang out in my room, not even turn on my computer , and breathe deep. so, what have i been up to that's kept me so busy? some of the highlights:
i went to the breeders concert on august 7th. definitely one of the highlights of my summer. i've been wanting to see them since high school, and now they're finally back on tour. i think this is similar to what they played in dc -- damn it was good. not as many encores, tho :( but dc's audiences tend to be less than enthusiastic, so i can't really blame them for not feeling that lovin' vibe. and, now that i'm done playing concert critic...
also, i'm back working on cultureflux. things are actually getting pretty exciting, so i have that to look forward to.
the kicker (i.e., what's really kept me busy): my parents had their 25th anniversary party on august 17th. i think between the planning/manuallabor for that, and the actually heavy work load for my day-job, i lost about 68% of (what was left of) my sanity, and four years worth of sleep. but the party was fun. no one behaved themselves, which is probably why it was so fun, but at least i managed to keep my sari on. the brother and i made a joint speech/toast that we thought was pretty cool -- too bad no one else really paid attention. who has speeches at a party anyway?
for those of you who don't know yet, swathy is back in the country. give her a call and remind her that you love her.
and, that's it.
