If I need cheering up the best way to do it is punk rock.

So last night the lovely D took me to see Stiff Little Fingers at the Horseshoe. Their shows are always notable for being one of the few gigs I go to where I'm not the oldest person there by a long shot. Somebody was rolling around on top of the mosh pit and I'm standing at the back calling, "That's how you break a hip!"

I spent most of the night talking to two women who sat down next to us and started comparing who-we-knew-back-in-the-day stories. D always says he is constantly flummoxed by how often perfect strangers will just walk up to me and start talking. Apparently people never do that to him, I tell him it's because he has resting murder face.

So today I am feeling decidedly underslept. Fortunately I'm pretty much caught up with all the stuff I have to get done before next week so it's OK if I'm a little disorganized.

Monday is Halloween so my co-workers decided to decorate the command centre. I made the mistake of telling them I had bones at home, so that's why I rode the streetcar to work this morning with two big bags packed full of dead things. I am now getting quizzical looks from many many people.

Tomorrow's schedule is bill paying and listing things for sale. Tonight it's video games and a bottle of wine, because I am taking the night off.

One of the women I work is very extroverted. Today for some reason the topic of music came up and she decided that she was going to find a way for us to bond over the subject. So she started pulling up samples on her phone.

After about 20 minutes of this I finally had to ask her, "You don't actually know what punk is, do you?"

(Spoiler. She doesn't.)

We never got the chance to geek about music so I don't know if he would have liked this.

But Miss J, this is for him. And for you.

Ocean Rising

Just got back from seeing Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip.

What a fucking show.

They hit Montreal tomorrow and then head back south. Seriously, if you can. Check them out.

There comes a time in every relationship when you have to let the skeleton out of the closet. When you realize that things are getting pretty, well, serious and that you cannot in all good conscience go any further without revealing the awful truth.

"Honey," I said, "We have to talk."

We sat down together and his face was quiet and serious as I struggled to make my confession. Finally I blurted out the secret shame that I had been keeping from him for all these months.

"I like Tom Waits better than Nick Cave."

(He forgave me.)
