old sensation

felt like i damn near broke my back today, prepping the house for another visit from another potental (ie: non) buyer instead of doing actual work-work that i suppose i shall never feel caught up on. took more sweat than usual to wipe-n-mop on account on the thick layer of pollen that had taken over every surface in the home. serves me right for flinging open all the windows during the few glorious days of spring we had earlier in the week before the hurricane moved in.

respite from the driving rain last night in scotiabank place (formerly the corel centre) - took the gay posse to see jd fortune's ottawa debut with inxs. however impressed i had been that a brazen sexy cape bretoner beat out the other vocalists to get the gig was, admittedly, dampened by his over-milking of the canadian-ness - expected, but irritating nonetheless. sadly, the Rock Concert just didn't deliver. the staging and lighting were not much more than i'd expect to see at a simple plan show, which i would never go see and so there's my point. i mean, it's inxs! the supergroup who provided the soundtrack to a few key memories; i played kick so many times in my mercury lynx that the cassette actually fell apart! that said, it was pretty good (though let's face it, no one can ever replace michael). thanks again greggy for the tickets that allowed us to crash the allstream box - the open bar far outweighed the concert itself. problem is, after enjoying a concert from a corporate box, it'll be hard to descend ever again to the ranks of those pleb, with their drink-holder lacking seats and over-priced chemical snacks and non-private toilets.

sm's birthday has provided more opps for me to not procrastinate, but rather, continue the effort to strike what i have heard termed a 'work-life balance'. tonight: phase one of the b-day weekend was my homemade lasagne and seeing this production at the gctc. quick review: clever, current, forgivably self-indulgent. particularly loved the last supper as rendered by star wars and wizard of oz action figures. had enough wine afterwards that my feet are right now tingling. only 3 glasses - either i've become a lightweight or the wine was shitty. or both.
