ANYWAY also i finally, after FOUR YEARS OF PATIENTLY WAITING, got to see THE RIFLES IN NEW YORK WITH MY SISTER. i saw them twice in london and they were fuckin amazing but without my sister it's just not the same. of course they were brilliant. of course what made the show even better was that LIAM (gallagher) was stood TEN FEET FROM ME enthusiastically cheering them on. LIAM AND I HAVE AMAZING TASTE OBVIOUSLY. andy and gem were there too (no noel, poor guy). paul weller was the headliner and he was pretty good too - i mean, he IS paul weller. i really wanted to stay through the end to stalk oasis but i've acquired a mean cold and basically felt like death so had to leave about 10 songs in, sad :(
PLEASE GUYS PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE GO SEE THE RIFLES AT MERCURY LOUNGE NEXT FRIDAY PLEASEEEEEE IT WILL BE THE BEST GIG EVER IN YOUR LIFE. noah and the whale are opening--they sing that "sun sun suuuuun" song in that car commercial.
oh also saw the stereophonics who KILLED ITTTT. kelly jones' voice is unreal. i really hope i can see them in london at the O2 arena. and tonight is the kooks/wombats and next week is swell season (which i'm working-it's in central park so come say hi and sit on the grass and listen to the show!) and THE RIFLES and cut copy/presets OH dear lord what did i do to deserve this month of goodness?!!
now if only my body/immune system would work as wonderfully as the rest of my life. this has been my life the past month and a half:
3 weeks of acute-bordering-on-severe stomach pains --> doctor figures it out; i have an inflamed intestine (NICE!), solves problem with pills --> blood tests taken to determine what was wrong with me show that i have anemia; am forced to go on iron pills, which, guess what, UPSET MY STOMACH HAHAHAHHHA CRAZY --> take the iron pills for two weeks, which make me dry heave if i don't eat something when taking them, even though they're only effective if taken on an empty stomach and you don't eat anything an hour after taking them, OH JOY ISN'T THIS FUN!? --> am forced to stop taking the iron pills because i get ALL FOUR of my wisdom teeth taken out and i can't eat ANYTHING because my mouth is super sore because i had a really tough surgery (that's what the doc said--i was flying high on drugz) --> periods of intense pain due to mouth retardation --> mouth is almost fully healed and i wake up with a COLD --> can't breathe through my nose so am forced to breathe through my mouth which DRIES OUT the four holes i have in my mouth --> edit: come home from kooks show and throw up due to bad gag reflexes and my body finally telling me, "STOP taking 15 pills a day and only eating soup!!!" --> awesome.
the cold arrived yesterday, so that's what i'm currently dealing with. my stitches came out of my mouth today so i'm almost fully healed, but i'm stuck eating soup and pudding all day. two weeks straight of that is going to drive me insane!
WHY DOES MY BODY HATE ME SO MUCH!?!?!
