I can't believe my time at home has come to an end already. It feels like I just got here. It's been great, I got to see a bunch of my favorite people in the whole world, ski, eat my face off, sleep, relax, recharge my batteries, drink a lot of wine...just BE HOME. I needed it, in a bad way.

Of course this whole weekend it's been about 60 in Chicago and it only made it into the high 30s here. And when I go back, the temperature is supposed to drop again. Awesome. Oh well. It was worth it.

I'm off to lunch with my sister and uncle and then heading up to Albany. I wonder if they have wifi in the Albany airport. I keep meaning to update and then I just don't, and I'd really like to change that.

I am going home to New York tomorrow! Man, am I ready for a frakking break.

But before I go...NEW BSG TONIGHT! WOO!

And I got a roomba. Be jealous of me.

A very Merry Christmas to those who celebrate!

I'm home, I'm happy, I'm exhausted. I've gotten 7 hours of sleep in the past two days, I'm going to bed.

I have programed all my numbers into my phone that I was able to get my hands on. Still don't really know how to work it, but I know we're going to be great friends.

I have to be up in about 4 and a half hours to get on the train to get to Midway to get on a plane to go home. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

Work tonight - I almost walked out. Julia is a cunt.

I will be home in 12 hours! (Weather permitting.)

I should be cleaning. I think I'm packed.

Adam bought me Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At Worlds End on DVD for Christmas. I know how unhappy that made him (he is not a fan). It is beautiful and I am going to love it forever and ever. He also got me Black Books: The Complete Series and a picture of Darth Vader that will go next to my Revenge of the Jedi picture. I love presents!

So this is Christmas...

I am trying not to think but it's inevitable, and I am trying not to wonder but my mind wanders, but mostly I am relaxed and content and that mountain air should be bottled and sold as the cure for what ails you because it truly is wonderful. I bought a pair of red Pumas yesterday and everyone has remarked that I should click my heels three times and I laugh and say there's no need, I'm already here.

There's no place like it.

Btw, to clear up confusion, the quote I posted was not from a concert I attended, unfortunately the Counting Crows have skipped Chicago this summer in their county fair tour (jerks). I got it from the [livejournal.com profile] countingcrows community and I love the way Adam uses his words. It rings true. Sometimes you fuck up and you know you're fucking up and you know you should stop it and you just do it anyway. That feeling and I have become quite intimate in the past few weeks.

Anyway. The concert I DID go to, Nickel Creek and Fiona Apple, was so incredible. I rarely go to concerts, the only people I ever see are Tori Amos and the Counting Crows and whoever happens to be touring with them. I will now add Nickel Creek to that short list, when they come back (this was their Farewell For Now Tour, and I hope they don't stay away for long because they are too good, too earnest and too real). The show was incredible, they played a great mix, including The Fox, This Side, Best of Luck, Jealous of the Moon, Reasons Why, Out of the Woods, Scotch and Chocolate, Anthony, Why Should the Fire Die?, and many other instrumentals. They also played for Fiona as her band, and she did Limp, A Mistake, Criminal, Fast as You Can, Extraordinary Machine, Paper Bag, etc. They also did a cover of Patsy Cline's After Midnight that Fiona ROCKED and they closed the show with Tonight You Belong to Me (the song Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters duet in The Jerk, LOVE THAT SONG). It was incredible. I'm glad Fiona was there but I was also a little bummed, it WAS Nickel Creek's Farewell Tour after all, I wish they'd played more. But I'm not going to complain, it was a great night, the weather was perfect, and I got laid before AND after. YES.

I just had a reunion with my director, dance teacher, and 3 girls I grew up with in the center church where we put on many a show back in the day. It's good to be home.

This has been a horrible work week, so slow. I'm on a double and got cut at 2 because it was so dead, so I'm sitting next to Chicago River on Michigan Ave talking to old friends and reading and daydreaming and the sun is shining and the breeze is cooling and it's a good day even though I'm not making any money. My back is better and my head is filled with pirates and half-sided conversations and stories. I am going on a road trip in two days and my destination is full of people who I love and miss.

It's a good day.
