Festival Schmestival

Did I tell you that I live on the coolest street in Prague? Well I do. At least that's what some magazine or whatever said. The whole area is becoming more cool every day, and more expensive, ordinary schlubs like me are being slowly pushed out. This building is being fixed up and we're expected to pay for it, and I don't mean just by having to listen to the construction going on.

Anyway, this super cool street has a festival every year in May on a Saturday and this is the day. People, music, food and drink stands, dogs barking at the horror of being surrounded by so much noise and people, that sort of thing. I'm just not feeling it. When you have no friends and no money it's all a bit, well annoying. I did go down there for a while, but more for anthropological and documenting purposes than actually being a part of it. There's too many people, and if there's a halfway decent band going on the crowds watching in what is a quite narrow street make it impossible to pass. I mean you can pass, but it's a pain in the ass. So here I am, on my own, being grouchy. I think this is all I have to look forward to.

Yes, festivals are great but only in someone else's backyard.

well I kind of liked that there was a cool festival just out my door, but that's when I'm in the mood to be somehow a part of it, but right now it's just annoying, a reminder that there are people out there with lives, without worries, with friends, with a beer, you know, that sort of thing.

I had no idea you were lonely. You always seemed to be such a social animal.

ha.. that's kind of funny, I never thought I presented myself in such a way, well I guess I can be social enough, just when I don't have a reason to go somewhere, ie a job then I really don't see anyone but the other person who lives here and the cat, who isn't usually here but is now, plus a few newcomers.. not that I see them too much.
