A few thoughts on today:

1. Welcome to Night Vale had a big fancy performance at Town Hall tonight for the second anniversary of that rather terrific podcast. It made me realize that the last time I was in Town Hall was about 10 years ago, almost to the day, to see the Magnetic Fields. And that took me back to that night. It felt like what Edith Wharton wrote about in the opera scenes in The Age of Innocence, where there was so much going on offstage that it almost dwarfed the action on stage. Everyone was excited to see the Magnetic Fields, but they were more excited to see each other. Some day I will turn it into fiction that people will want to read. Which may mean I would need to re-read The Age of Innocence to do so. (oh, darn. It's only one of my favorite books.)

2. Speaking of anniversaries, twenty years ago, the Rangers were in the Stanley Cup finals. They are again!!! But they lost game one in OT to the Kings. *sigh* I'm hopeful, though. Because life as a Ranger fan is one lived in hope. (and dying in despair, but we're ignoring that at the moment. GO BLUE!)

3. I never have enough time to do everything I have to do, everything I want to do, and still sleep. Such an old complaint, and it's more true than ever this week. I've had flashes of wanting to be creative, but it was during a moment when I had to be productive in a different way at work. *sigh* And I never sleep enough. Ever.

4. I realized recently that while work is going decently, I keep getting knocked over because I was beating everything on easy mode up until now. It's been moved up to Medium and now I'm getting my ass kicked a bit again. Oh well. Time to level up again.

But first. SLEEP.

God was it really 20 years ago? I so vividly remember that night.
