Levitating Shoes

I had a mostly great weekend in San Francisco. It was a bit of a wretched excess, which one can't help but regret after the fact; though one enjoyed it thoroughly at the time and knows full well one would do it again. My dislike of the TSA has been fanned into a white-hot vexation. I said an unkind thing to a friend and hurt his feelings, and regret it extremely. Apologizing afterwards, I realized one of the reasons it bugged me so much is that I haven't argued with anyone all year, and thus have had fairly little to apologize for. It's much easier, this not arguing thing.

Tonight are the audtions for "Thumbelina" about which I'm quite nervous. I thought it was Thursday night, and hadn't prepared my monologue - once again I'm last-minute scrambling to memorize something. (Constable Dogberry's "I am an ass" speech from Much Ado) I can only do my best though, so I hope i'm in the state to do exactly that. Still, there's this weird feeling I've had since walking out the door this morning that there's some other shoe that's yet to drop. What is this levitating shoe? Is it a bear in the bushes? Ninjas? Acme piano company piano being winched to the second floor over my head?

Whatever the case, I've got some nerves, and it's bugging me. Also, I'm giving up alcohol and sugar for the foreseeable future - and as soon as I'm done with the excellent coffee I have at home, I'm going to kick my caffeine habit, too. Maybe it's just dread of that?

Good heavens, man. No wonder you are all out of sorts. Alcohol, sugar AND caffeine?!? *swoons* Quick get me a latte!

Seriously, best of luck giving up these vices. Alcohol for me is..meh... but sugar and caffeine.. now that's just crazy talk.

Caffeine is the hardest. I mean .. I've done it before. But you can see how well it took...

There is no other shoe. You just named at least three seperate things that might be unsettling by themselves- no wonder you are feeling out of sorts.

What did you think of San Francisco? Did you get to see any of the city proper?

Not a bit - barely made it any further than the hotel bar. Truly, I am a degenerate.

Truly.

Not even Max's Opera Cafe? (I am assuming that you were somewhere in the airport hotel row, which I know very well from my flying days.)

Some day you really need to go and see the city. I think you will love it.

I'm with you on drink and sugar, too hard for me to give up the caffeine.
