sxsw [11 Mar 2007|12:39pm]
i leave for sxsw early on tuesday. as of right now, i am in the beginning stages of what i can tell will be an awful cold. it will probably reach its full potential when i wake up on tuesday, just in time for the two flights i have that will total around 12 hours of flying time. then i get to spend 4 days not sleeping or eating properly. and then i get to fly back for 20938423 hours. i will probably pass out/die at some point in this process, so i just wanted to say it was nice knowing all of you.
srsly though--i really can't believe my luck. i know i'm cursed and always have bad luck, but this just takes the cake. MY IMMUNE SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE REPLACED BECAUSE IT NEVER DOES ITS JOB. for those of you keeping score, i was sick just over a month ago on my 21st bday. 1 month later and my pathetic body is already sick again?? LAME.
also-- i won't be able to taste food. i've been DYING for some american/tex mex and now that i can finally have it, i won't even want it.
i really hate complaining and i never do it, but this is just silly. i really couldn't be sick at a worse time. knowing me, if i ever decide to get married (HA) i'll get the flu just in time for the big day.

anyway....i still have no idea which bands i am going to see. here is my tentative list. jeff, if you make a comment to me that it's too long and belongs behind a cut i will have to beat you the next time i see you.
i think the most challenging day for making decisions will be thursday. just look at the 1 am time slot. wtf kind of decision am i supposed to make?? LIFE IS SO HARD ;o)

don't even get me started on the day parties. i'm going to list them all behind a cut, just so those of you who are considering sxsw but for some insane/strange/crazy/DUMB reason still don't go, will realize how fucking awesome this festival is. almost of all these parties offer free booze/drinks/food/swag. why not ALL of my friends go will always remain a mystery to me............
