Life, or Things I Learned Tonight, or "I'm fillin' in for a guy who lost his foot on this thing yesterday. . ."


Things I learned tonight;

1. two day old coffee that has been reheated in a microwave tastes just like it sounds
2. Taco Bell done right messes me up inside
3. rain slows holidays down
4. there are few sounds I like hearing more than old friends' voices on my phone
5. I think that I come across as bitter and condescending to everyone that isn't used to me
6. I am my facebook profile
7. 4:15 am is far too early to go to sleep

Baby, It's Cold Outside (Around 70; brrr)

(but baby its cold outside)
I've got to go away
(but baby its cold outside)

(I'll hold your hands there just like ice)
my mother will start to worry
(beautiful what's ur hurry?)
and father will be pacing with floor
(listen to the fireplace roar)
so really i better scurry
(beautiful please hurry)

(put some records on while i pour)
the neighbors might think
(baby its bad out there)

(no cabs to be had out there)
i wish i knew how.... to break the spell
(your eyes are like starlight now)
(ill take ur hat your hair looks swell)
i ought to say no, no, no sir
(mind if i move in closer?)

(but BABY its cold outside)

(gosh your lips look delicious)
my brother will be there at the door
(waves upon a tropical shore)
my maidens aunts mind is vicious
(GOSH your lips are delicious)

Columbia, My Distraction


This morning I woke up and said to myself, "I should go to Columbia(SC) today." So I did. It's a college town that's an hour away. There's a Steak 'n Shake there and in my eagerness to get home and experience all things St. Louis, I went there first. That alone was worth the trip, though Steak 'n Shake is not as fun when I'm by myself. I learned that much. Afterwards, I made my way downtown to find out what there is in Columbia, SC. I found a welcoming record store where I spent 20 dollars. There is something noble about buying vinyl, rather than faceless downloading. Or maybe it's another way I try to assert my over-glorified uniqueness. The trip back was quick, but I had to slam on my brakes to avoid a sudden traffic jam, which in turn burned the rubber off of my front right tire, which means now that my tire is uneven. I'll have to get it fixed on Monday. Futile excitement, really. I did like being in Columbia, though. The place made me feel less awkward as a college-age white kid that appreciates things creative. I like places that make me feel that way.

Why I hate Christmas Time


Saturday, December 9th, 2006:

Panera bread has become my Bay Books

There's a guy in a 50's Greaser leather jacket getting soda from the soda fountain. Looks like Chachi.

Traffic outside is horrible on account of the millions of people spending money in this poorly laid out shopping center.

Wow, she is Beautiful.

I passed my US History II clep test on Thursday, earning myself credit for a class I didn't take. Legally.

With a Smile Like That: due out in stores sometime in the future.

My stomach is full.

It's going to take $400 for a new instrument panel for my Jetta. I don't have a speedometer.

Home is just over a week away.

This woman sitting with her husband and child keeps looking at me.

I think I'm picking up the southern accent.

I need a place to stay in between GA and St. Louis.

The Cardinals didn't get Jason Schmidt.

I'm constantly amazed at how segregated this place is.

Lesbians stand out.

I am out of thoughts.
