Previous Week’s Highlights.
You know how, sometimes, when you have like a lot to do, and so you decide to pull an all-nighter to tackle shit? And then, as the new day arrives, and you’re here to welcome it, you do what you have to do, finish stuff, battle falling asleep several times throughout the day… But you make it, and then around, like 8 or 9 (earlier even), you voluntarily give up. You watch some movie or something, just so that you and your (sexy) body can calm the hell down a little (cause both were under pressure because of lack of sleep, right?), before you can actually fall asleep. Ever been there? This kinda happened to me Saturday night. Except I did not decided to not sleep for the night, it was HBO alongside Game of Thrones that made the decision. In a way.
So, my friends and I attended this gig on Saturday, several musicians from different Macedonian bands and this Japanese older dude called Damo Suzuki who was actually the star of the event. It was a great concept, Mr. Suzuki started and kept on singing without, like, stopping, while the musicians behind him were changing, taking turns after playing a while. We had a great time, but by the time the concert ended, I was I-wanna-put-my-finger-in-someone’s-eye starving, and when I finally ate a little, I ate, well, a little (sad face emoji). When I went to bed, I wasn’t feeling quite the best, like, I wasn’t sick or anything, but I’ve definitely felt way better.
And so, I’m like “I’m just gonna watch something, like stop thinking about shit, and then I’ll fall asleep.” But, then HBO was like “oh, c’mon, you don’t wanna sleep! You have to watch the 3rd season of Game of Thrones!” And I’m like “but I’ve already seen it!” “So what if you’ve seen it! Is this you saying that you remember exactly how you felt when Rob, his baby-mama and his mama got massacred in Fray’s house? Oukay!” I watched it, I watched them get brutally murdered, again, is all I’m saying. It was around 4.30 am, when I was like “oh, shit, it’s almost 5, I have to sleep!” Well, you can’t! You didn’t fall asleep when you should’ve, and now, you simply can’t.
And I really tried, you know, to fall asleep, but after an hour or so, and I still couldn’t do it, I was like “Ah, fuck this! If I go to sleep now, I’ll wake up after 3 days, so, let’s make some coffee and see what to do for the rest of Sunday”. So, not entirely my decision, see? And you’d think that the hardest part here would have to be the part where you actually stay awake and somewhat functioning, just after the all-nighter. Just, you know, manage to live through that day, and you’ll get to bed early that night, and the next day everything will be over, you’ll feel brand new. This is where you’re entirely wrong, like you couldn’t be more wrong about something. Well, you could, but for the sake of the story, let’s just say you couldn’t. Today I woke up feeling just like Loki right after Hulk was over with him. I even did the voice and everything.
I wish I could’ve say that I’ll never ever do this again. And I actually could say, but it wouldn’t be like entirely true, so.. let’s just say, I’m gonna try to like not do this.. for a longer period of time, like, until I forget how both me and Loki felt.
