It’s 12:15 am and I’m sitting at the computer in my apartment. The radiators knock and bang and “Scrubs” is on TV. I was so tired today from not sleeping the last couple of nights because of the radiators that I past out today at 8:00 pm. Now I can’t sleep. I even washed the dirty dashes in the sink and washed out a pair of blue jeans by hand to hang to dry in the shower. What a boring life I lead. Man, I need a job just to have a social life especially since I don’t have a job and can’t hang out like I use to.
For some reason I stopped at Del’s Italian restaurant in Bloomfield (Pittsburgh’s “Little Italy”) Friday when I did my weekly food shopping and there was John, one of the owners, standing at the bar. This was the place that three years ago you could find me every Friday night for karaoke. Well, last Friday I stayed too long and spent too much money but I knew half of the people that showed up and it was just good to be in a social situation again. I left before karaoke began.
On TV, Ted Turner is being interviewed by Travis Smiley now. I’m going to try to get some sleep.
