Last Friday Clint and I went and bought a lot of valentines that were on clearance. I bought these ones that were called “sea creatures”. I want to scan them and post them on people’s myspace pages. We decided we’re going to try to keep valentines day going..even though I don’t even like that holiday and I always say it sucks ass.
I was sick all week and so I drank 25 Emergen-C’s…I’ve come to the conclusion that they don’t do shit, but then I drink a diet pepsi and feel like 20 bucks again. Could it be because of caffeine’s antibacterial properties? I stayed home from work on Tuesday and watched “Charade” with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. My favorite scene is when Cary Grant takes a shower with his suit on. The fact that I was able to purchase it at Walgreens for 1.99 is both terrific and depressing at the same time. It was one of those cheap dvd’s so it just replays over and over if you leave it on, so when I fell asleep I kept waking up during different parts and it must have played like 8 times, and was sort of a soundtrack to my fever dreams. Then I watched “Deliverance”, one of the greatest films of all time. It kind of strikes a personal chord because it reminds me of hunting and fishing with my dad as a kid. And the scene where Jon Voight is pulling back the bow to shoot a deer and is so nervous his hand starts shaking and he kind of loses it… it’s something I’ve actually experienced. My dad always referred to it as “buck fever”. Clint and I talked about getting a night DJing somewhere, and we would call our night “deliverance”. It would be so popular.
Anyway, Friday was Abe’s CD release party at the Trunk Space. Almost everyone in the world was there. It just like a 2002 party, with everyone coming from far and wide. Abe really does put on an amazing performance. He really gives it the old heave-ho(sp?). Hard to believe he’s a schoolteacher by day. He’ll be famous soon if he just keeps doing what he’s doing. Oh, and Asleep in the Sea is still the best local band in my opinion. So creative and original.
Clint was wasted so I had to drive his car home. He couldn’t believe that I knew how to drive stick shift. I remember last summer when I was hanging out with Lindsey, she said she was really impressed that I knew how to drive stick. But I figured she probably just always hangs out with these emo kids or whatever. And I mean, I used to hunt deer with a bow and arrow from up in a tree. Of course I know how to drive a stick shift car. It’s one of the few things I can actually say I’m great at without having to lie.
Last night Adriane called me, and invited me on her bus for her birthday tonight. She rented a bus that’s going to drive all her friends to a hotel and these different clubs, and then finally to the rogue. I’m still kind of sick, but I think if I just pop some pills and spray some of that zinc stuff in my throat I should be good to go.
