Not what I was expecting...

I'm still trying to make heads or tales out of this evening, but I'll attempt to put it right here....

Was at work until 8:30. I was supposed to meet up with my brother for pool and pints, but he hadn't got any sleep the night before (an alarm went of in his building at 6 this morning) and what with theGirl having her night out with the girls I found myself resigning to a night in. When I thought! Why don't I just go out anyway and have a good time by myself?

So I managed to get home, get changed and down to Savage Garden (great little Goth/Industrial club) to hang out a bit. An old haunt I hadn't been to in ages. Bumped into a (just as old) friend who said he was gonna head across the street to the Fetish Masquerade. I thought "Why the fuck not? I haven't been to one of those in I don't know how long!". 10 minutes later I'm over there. I bump into an old friend of mine who is, by far, the BEST photographer I know and we chatted for awhile.

Then the slightly-expected-yet-still-totally-unpreparred-for-moment arrived... I ran into my ex. Megan was there, which I figured to be a possibility. But we still had a really cool time. Caught up on old stuff, made a date for Tuesday (not that kind of "date") to catch up properly and, slightly more importantly, so I could get some stuff back.

Then ran into Steph (theGirl's roomate's friend) and chatted with her for a bit. She thought (briefly) that I was someone else, which was kinda funny considering she's met me 2 or 3 times before, and we bitched about an even older ex...

Now I remember why I left the scene. WAY TOO MUCH FUCKING DRAMA!!!

Stuff that we talked about I won't get into here. Let it be known that I (actually we) think my ex is insane, but my ex has other people thinking that I am insane. Funny how fate works.

Anyway. There's a post worth chewing on for a bit...

Drama? In the toronto goth scene?? *shocked* ;)

Hehe... Yeah, how could I forget?

Sometimes we need a little reminder of it. I was considering going to the next Darkrave on Feb 7th, but I'm reconsidering it.

I think the only songs that I don't have are Take Me Alive and Medusa.

have I mentioned lately how completely awesome you are?

2004-01-18 07:37:52 ET

awww, shucks! *looks all bashful*

Yeah Tweaker is actually ex-NIN guitarist Chris Vrenna, and he's got Craig Wedren singing on that track.

I should post them on my my Filesharing page.

*grins* yeah, yeah. Don't start getting all modest now. ;)

I'll definitely have to check them out.
I've finally stopped wallowing in Love Spirals Downward, and my friend Kaori pretty much forced a bunch of fischerspooner and wire at me.. both of which are really great.
