Tears Were Shed This Night

11 December 1999

Tears were shed this night–I was in the sort of mood that could only be im­proved (or, failing that, soothed) by a good serve of Pearl Jam’s “Nothingman”–but the damn CD was no-where to be found. “Ten”, “No Code”, “Yield”: these were un­cov­ered quickly enough, but “Vitalogy” could not be found … and so the frus­tra­tion in­creased until the only thing left to do was sit down and cry. Which I did for a short while, until I re­mem­bered where the CD was. Where­upon the CD player was set to play “Nothingman” both re­peat­edly and loud, and the frus­tra­tion was lifted.
