Wired on caffeine. Too wired to handle the delicate work on the book. I got about 30 pages done this afternoon. Need a break.
I’m on a detox weAkend, which means not even 1 drink, not even beer. Last night I got 10.75 hours of sleep. That’s a total of maybe 3 nights total over the past week. 25 mg OTC sleeping aid, 20 mg of Melatonin, plus 2 giant gulps of NyQuil and I slept 10.75 hrs. I could have slept longer if I wanted to but I had a 9 AM meeting with Emily to bring my vest to me as a finished product. Of the several dozens of people who have made false promises to me it’s nice to see someone finally came through. She did so much work on it and didn’t charge me a penny. She even drove 3x all the way from Kankakee County to meet with me.
Friday I left work early after getting written up and warned for wearing my clown suit into the office. Seems some people were so freaked out that I got in trouble for what I saw as a simple harmless prank. I came home and still communicated with two people from the office on projects I work on tomorrow. I had been up since 2 AM and was shaking. After my warning I was even more stressed. I guess I need to go back and see Dr. Tong soon.
Solid sleep Friday night was not much better. I was awake at 3 AM, went and ran a couple errands in the cold and windy weather and waited for my maid Maria to arrive at 11A and then went back out to do laundry. She did a great job and was done by 2P. She’s expensive but worth it and gave the flat a deep cleaning. I cancelled the plans I had with Greg for Saturday and Sunday. I just need to detox and rest. The next two weeks I’m travelling for concerts out of town so this is my last chance for solitude for a while.
I’m finding more and more material for the book as each day passes. I’ve got a visit from Matt Zane coming up to do the Mancow show and then it’s just rock n roll for stretch.
What I really hope for is a visit from my brother in April. Some good ol family time is good medicine for what soul I have left. I have a weird feeling I am on the brink of a really good summer.
I finally found something to make these a little brighter for the Warhol room. Two Crystal Head Vodka bottles I filled with fish tank grave. Thanks to my friends at the House of Blues Foundation Room for these years ago.
Crystal Head Vodka is a brand of vodka manufactured by Globefill Inc. in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. It was conceived of and founded by actor Dan Aykroyd and artist John Alexander in 2007.
Till next time
