This warm weather is messing up my kwan man. This is the time of year when the weather is supposed to be on the brink of chilly, and I should be able to have the option of opening up my window, and feeling slightly uncomfortable at the breeze that is coming through. Instead, last night, if I were to open the window, I would have felt humidity like it was mid-August. Now I looked ahead to this weekend's forecast, and it appears as if the temps will go back to their normal low 60s high, and low 50s to high 40s low, but in the meantime, I am struggling to find a good night's sleep. I woke up at 4am, and I didn't go back to sleep until about 6:15, and even then I kept having weird dreams about 2pac being alive, spanking my son and a woman with a two nipples right below her navel. I simply cannot take a steady diet of that.

Before the treacherous night of sleep, I spent the majority of my evening flipping between three television events, instead of writing like I should be doing (I think basketball season will cure that). These three events were Monday Night Football, game 4 of the Yankees/Cleveland baseball game, and the Vh-1 hip hop awards. My motive for watching all three? I fully expected the Dallas game to be boring, so I was basically watching to see how my fantasy football players would do; I wanted to see the Yankees lose in the playoffs once again; and I wanted to see A Tribe Called Quest honored in a way that probably will never ever be honored on any other awards show. So how did the evening end up? The football game ended up being one of the best of the season, and I only saw it intermittently. The Yankees made me happy by losing prematurely once again, and the VH-1 Awards were boring and nostalgic all at the same time. I must admit though, watching a retrospective of A Tribe Called Quest made me feel old. I've been listening to them since I was 14, and now they are considered to be old legends, and they aren't even 40 yet. This also reminds me that at some point I need to purchase all of their music, since I lost mine in the fire.

This morning, while I was standing on an empty train platform, a woman stood DIRECTLY next to me, when she clearly could have gone somewhere else. Now I didn't notice she walked with some kind of limp, but I still was a bit confused as to why she was so damn close. But I didn't say anything, I just stood as still as a scarecrow until the train came, and went on about my business. Now had this been Saturday, I would have looked at her, and asked if she wanted to hold my hand or something. But today? No harm done. No awkwardness felt.

Yes, that is only reason why I watch the VH1 Hip- Hop Honors, to see Tribe. Other than that everyone else sucked, especially T-Pain.
