|I wrote a
journal entry yesterday detailing reasons to move or to stay. Then my computer crashed. It
had a pretty table and all of the cool effects, but I can't be bothered with that sort of
thing right now. Maybe later.
Last night I went to dinner with Amanda and Erin. As usual,
none of us could really decide where to go, so we went to the Outback Steakhouse.
Australian food. When Aaron Evans got back from Sydney we had a very poignant discussion
on how Americans seem to think Shrimp on the Barbie is a bonafide dish but the Australians
don't actually eat shrimp. They call them prawns. So what gives? Ill communication if I
ever saw it.
a bunch of fat middle aged women sitting near us, probably on a girl's night out. Getting
tanked before they had to get home to make their husbands a late dinner. Ooh! Risky
business! Some old men behind us were giving us weird looks the entire time too. And like
everywhere else we go, Fat Boy Slim were playing over the loud speakers. Norman Cook must
be making a killing on royalties from all of the commercials and movies his songs are in.
I love Fat Boy Slim, but it gets creepy when you're eating a dinner salad and "Praise
You" is filtering out of the speaker overhead.
we went back to my place to watch the end of "Dawson's Creek". Joey's boyfriend
is gay?? What the hell? I mean, they are really pushing it for ideas, aren't they? Amanda
said that Dawson is going to lose his virginity during sweeps. I believe it. That show is
so good. Then "Charmed" came on, and I highly reccomend this show to everyone.
Love Spit Love do a cover of "How Soon Is Now" by the Smiths that makes me cry
from laughing so hard each time I hear it. We each picked a character from the show that
matched us best. I chose Shannen Doherty because she's always been my favorite bitch on
tv. And when I was a little girl I used to look like she did on Little House on the
Prairie. Kind of. Amanda got Alyssa Milano's character because she's the youngest and
unemployed. And Erin got the other girl (Piper) because she is kind of neurotic and
paranoid in that same sort of way. And she's the shortest. [you know i mean that in
the best way erin, don't you?]
that, we busted out the Smirnoff and watched Romy and Michele's High School Reunion.
Damn I love that movie. I so want to be Mira Sorvino and act that cool. The
thing is though, Erin and I had too much to drink and were rattling about high school and
reunions and I got VERY sad when I started thinking about my high school sweetheart. I
really did love him. I started CRYING last night. I'm serious. Sure, we've both
changed a whole lot (at least I have) but I really do miss him. It's been a year since
I've even SEEN him, a couple of months since I've heard from him in at least an email, and
I don't know when or if I'll ever see him again. It's heartbreaking, really. We were more
like best friends in high school than anything else and I truly loved him. It was nice to
have a sweet, carefree relationship that wasn't mucked with anything unnecessary. My
friends loved him, my family adored him, and he and I just went together really well. I
wonder every day how he's doing and I pray he's happy at A&M. Just looking back
at how sweet everything was, it made me sad to think I had grown up and out of that stage
in my life. sigh.
I went to
bed fairly early. Amanda and Erin stayed up talking until 2 am. Ouch! Work today has just
sort of dragged by and I'm getting griped at for calling Chris Murphy a jerk on Sloannet.
Sorry if little girls who watch too much Much Music beg to differ. After you meet him, get
back to me. I was there, and it wasn't pretty, folks. He IS such a jerk.
we're going to see Valve. I'm kind of tired right now but I'll deal with it until then.
