Things I did yesterday
2. In a used bookstore in Toronto, finally found a cheap copy of the poetry anthology (I think it's one of the Norton's, although it doesn't say so on the front) we used in grade 11, which I always wanted to keep. It turns out the poem I've been trying to remember for years, which is one of my favourites, is "Epistle to Be Left in the Earth" by Archibald MacLeish.
3. Saw a really excellent show by one of my favourite live bands, Los Campesinos!, and continued our streak of not missing any of their Ontario shows (as far as I know). The opener, Sky Larkin, was a band I'd seeing LC! mention fondly many times, and they were excellent too. I managed to make my way to Gareth during the encore when he and Tom and Neil jumped into the crowd and we sang the chorus to "Broken Heartbeat Sounds Like Breakbeats" together (because I am a massive-loser fan of the band, and as we've now hung out with Gareth enough that I consider him a friend, I figured he wouldn't mind).
4. Bought horrible convenience store potato wedges near the Opera House, as I was 1. starving, 2. poor, 3. fond of horrible food and 4. still a liiiiittle drunk. The only one of these things that I even midly regret.
5. Since Julia decided driving back that night was not an option, stayed in the very reasonable Hostelling International place on Church St. Julia payed, which my unemployed ass thanks her for. A double room is only $60 if you get there late at night!
The only thin I've done today is use some more of my Beat Goes On credit on an album, but it's a momentous occasion: the first new album I've bought in a while. These days I buy new albums so rarely it feels like a bigger deal when I do, like I'm declaring an allegiance. My friend Theon will be happy to hear that I bought It's Blitz!.
