Back on Track

(I wrote this post on October 13th before I found out that Daniel had died. I figured I'd go ahead and post it anyways. I'll post it as is.)

2+ weeks of 10-12 hour days = bad blogger. Sorry. I can handle long days, but the whole going in at 4am thing kinda makes things worse. Actually by the end of this long string of long days, I got pretty used to it. I split my sleep, so I was expecting to really be hurting, but I ended up okay.

This is my normal schedule:
3:45am-1:30pm: awake
1:30pm-7pm: sleep
7pm-12am: awake
12am-3:45am: sleep

It’s messed up, but it works for me. It’s a little difficult to get up for work sometimes, but whatever. I deal.

Over the last couple of weeks, however, my afternoon sleep hasn’t started until 3:30-4:30pm. That’s two or three hours less sleep per day. Somehow, though, my body didn’t hate me too much and I survived. Now I can’t wait to get paid.

Not much to report lately. I did see Okkervil River in town last week (This was October 4). That was really nice. They put on a hell of a show. It was a triple bill clocking in around four hours (plus an extra hour pre-show of waiting), so my dogs were definitely barking by the end of the night. It was worth it though. The double whammy of “Our Life is Not a Movie or Maybe” and “Unless It’s Kicks” got the crowd super hot. Great show all-in-all. It was nice to see them. I had a chance to see them earlier this year in Richmond when they played a set with the New Pornographers, but I missed that… and it hurt to miss that. All good now though.

Coming up in a week, Broken Social Scene at Toad’s Place. (This was on Tuesday, and it was awesome.) Then the first Saturday in November in Of Montreal at the National. Can’t wait for either.

Not much else going on. Actually, there is one more thing that I would consider pretty life-altering, but I’ll get to that later… maybe tomorrow. I’m trying not to make a big deal out of it, but, well, you’ll see…
