Subject:An important observation
Time:10:57 am.
I was doing some thinking this morning between classes (I know, brain activity outside of class? What? I was confused as well.)

Wolves come in packs. Fish, schools.

Girl scouts? Troops.

You know what that means? That means when you see little brown-sashed Betty Sue coming towards you on the street with a box of Thin Mints in one hand and a potentially deadly clipboard in the other... you stop and you turn the fuck around.

Subject:Darling...
Time:6:21 pm.
Mood: discontent.
So. This is it. You're leaving me, and for good this time.

I hope you're happy.

Sure, we you had problems. TrimSpa degraded to a class action lawsuit against the company for false representation. Your fortune was always in a state of flux (were you rich or not, hun?), and your son bit the dust not two months ago.

I still think you're overreacting. Suicide is not the way to go. And collapsing at your tropical hotel? Baby, you cause such scenes.

I've got to wrap this up. The tears are starting to moisten the keyboard and I'm finding it hard to type. Hollywood lost a good one today. We'll miss you.

P.S. Try to see if you can get Botox or saline injections up there. Please send word bb...

kthxbye

Subject:trophy boys, trophy wives
Time:9:02 am.
It took me until today to feel completely recovered from this weekend of glorious irresponsibility. No regrets, however.

Last night, at around 8:30, I developed an inexplicable, overwhelming fatigue that showed no signs of fading. So I did the only reasonable thing: dressed for bed and started reading. I ended up sleeping for more than ten hours (9:30pm to 8:00am), which (while it is ungodly and not at all common) has left me in quite a good mood this morning. Though it sucks that feeling refreshed is apparently rare and satanic.

Somebody remind me to spend more time with Cinzia Coppola. I met more interesting people just eating dinner with her than I did during Nicole's entire three-day-long party extravaganza (Not that all of my existing friends aren't enormously interesting! I just know them already.)

Despite some events that some of you may have heard about recently (and thus would superficially appear to reinforce the negative of the following statement), I still don't feel amazingly comfortable with the expectation many college scholars seem to have, that is, that people will have random sex with them. Maybe it's a gay thing (the reservations or the sex, take your pick.) It was a problem when I was meeting people online, and it seems like its now turning into a problem meeting people at school.

Whatever happened to dating? Let's go out to eat, not get right to eating out. Let's watch the movie, not just copulate to its soundtrack. And who are you to avert your eyes in the hallway? Bitch please, I should be ignoring you.

I'm sorry that last part got a little weird. Oh wait; no, I'm not. No regrets!

God, I need to engage in a little retail therapy. Who's up for some shopping?

Subject:How long? Too long.
Time:1:35 pm.
Mood: hungry.
A pleasantly plump girl lifted her voice across the room to her young, considerably skinnier lady friend in the middle of Italian class today,

"The Bacardi! Bacardi! Do you have any more Bacardi left?"

Couldn't help but overhear, I swear (naturally). Disregarding my professor's amused comment, I turned my thoughts to the past, seeking my last indulgence in Mariah Carey's beverage of choice ("I came to have a party / Open up the Bacardi / Feeling so hot tamale / Boy, I know you watchin' me / So what's it gonna be?") but, much to my chagrin, could not even begin to fathom time's cruel length.

That changed during the course of last night and a wee bit of the morning. Fear not, though; Shannan stayed civilian and dry, Dave did not plant love bites upon any boy skin, and I remained clothed (well, mostly.)

Dave dutifully finished his social (Snakes on a Plane and desserts, sounds like great fun, amiright?) and returned to his room, where Shannan and I had been taking in hours of CSI: Miami while sipping Diet Rum'n'Cokes. The situation became slightly uncomfortable when he professed his lack of will to do anything that night.

Actually, that's a lie. He wanted to play World of Warcraft. I wanted to vomit in the corner.

So Shannan and I heeded Mimi's advice ("'Cause it's my night / No stress, no fights / I'm leavin' it all behind.") and struck out into the dually fuzzy night: fuzzy for the setting snow, fuzzy for the sodden shenanigans. We ventured further than we'd ever before dared venture. With hopes of excitement and a nagging fear of mishap, we stumbled to our giddy goal of goals, the warm fireplace at the end of a soggy day, our promised paradise!

We made it to Alumni.

We certainly did shake the place up. Between calling upon Nicole and Melissa twice (both times forgetting that Melissa had gone to an early bed and thus (at least for me) feeling slightly guilty), finding a boisterous band of merrymakers whose composition did not lack individuals named Jesse, Hana, and Summer, and even seeing Ray and Ashlynn watching their movie in bed, I had a very pleasant, if not tactfully restrained, experience. Much later when I prepared to leave alone (Shannan had returned earlier), Summer caught me by the outside door and engaged me in a quite suggestive sermon on the benefits of being, what was it? Oh yes, 'sexually available'. Something like that. But perhaps it is a story for another time.

Subject:stephen colbert on the 11/06 election results
Time:2:04 pm.
Mood: excited.
Tomorrow you’re all going to wake up in a Brave New World, a world where the constitution gets trampled by an army of terrorist clones created in a stem cell research lab run by homosexual doctors who sterilize their instruments over burning American flags. Where Tax and Spend Democrats take all your hard-earned money and use it to buy electric cars for National Public Radio and teach evolution to illegal immigrants. Oh, and everybody’s high!

Time:10:51 pm.
Mood: nostalgic.
i know ashlynn only wants the best for me, but sometimes I look at her, and, God help me, (fat chance, 'cause I'm atheist), part of me wants to say 'people like you make people like me want to drink themselves into a stupor or to death.'

nostalgic for a time when i trusted the girls whom I loved the most and was at peace with the way things are.

stop the disruption. let me be myself and not your idea of an 'adjusted' person, or any other adjective that might fit your attitude. you mean well but, sometimes, things are important to me too.

y'know?

Subject:lol + hmm...
Time:12:07 am.
Mood: cold.
Would he [Jesus] execute somebody?
I think he would - to save the lives of other people. The idea of turning the other cheek is not turning someone else's cheek. If you have two daughters and one gets raped, you don't send the other daughter into the street and say, "Have another one!"

Time:9:47 pm.
Mood: high.
i awoke nice and early (seven a.m.) in the driver's seat of my car, seatbelt on. My father was kind enough to open the door as i stumbled up the driveway and into the house.

That is how good my night was last night. repurcussions are for lovers.

god forbid i try to figure out how many calories i ingested last night between the vast quantities of jungle juice, the sips of strawberry blonde and twisted tea, and the few cheez-its that found their salty, square way into my mouth.

a little before ten o clock i had two bowls of cocoa crunch cereal, 2% milk (somebody shoot me), and a slice of banana bread with a healthy amount of Better n Peanut Butter slathered on.

dawdled around on the laptop for a while: talked to Sha and Scott about the party; tried (read: failed) to get work today covered, and basically sat on my fat ass until a reasonable person would expect lunch.

lunch consisted of the last slice of chicken and cheese quesadilla, a slice of my brother's pizza, and a sizeable handful of good ol' goldfish. go fucking me.

so after that i felt pretty bad but work made me feel a lot better. amy bell came in and squeezed me and said i was getting too skinny and i nearly died. she's so sweet.

saw sam and gwen at red rock briefly. i love those girls, and ive only known them for so little, but it feels like so long.

work-filled weekend looming ahead. at least i'll be the rich college boy, if not the social one.

Time:7:15 pm.
Mood: disappointed.
Well, good news / bad news time.

I was recently the victim of a pathetic digital attempt to erase a lot of personal memories. A very lonely person decided to try to erase my livejournal.

First, let's rejoice that he isn't very good at deleting much of anything (myspace, facebook, blah.)

Second, let's have a thoughtful moment of silence for the horrible emptiness that must exist inside this person.

.....

As most of my information page was also deleted, I'm beginning a small effort to restore my journal to normalcy. Perhaps the interests can wait, but the friends definitely need to come back. As I refriend you all, hopefully this entry serves to reinforce the new, sordid image in your minds that this person has drawn for himself.

Tsk.

Subject:What did I do today?
Time:12:40 am.
Mood: blah.
Today I worked from twelve oclock until nine oclock. It was ok, because Eva and Shannyn and Deb were there. It's nice and also a little sad how happy having my friends at work makes me. But it's ok.

Then, after drinking two doubleshots, a red bull, and a mountain dew energy drink thingy, I drove on down to Salem Willows for some DDR. The regular Willows crew left after about 20 minutes, but Paul showed up and played a game... I played a bunch, then watched him play some Initial D. It was fun.

So... nothing making me happy, nothing making me sad, makes me a blah person. It's fine, it's much better than being unhappy.

Subject:no subject because i'm speechless
Time:1:16 am.
Mood: exanimate.
i was so hyper on the way to the movies....

i loved The Village to an extent that, previously, only The Butterfly Effect could take me to. happy + sad = indescribeably whirlwhind feelings in me. Hooray!

Let it be written that Deborah Jane Williams owes Alexander Barron Gibney 1 (one) hug. beyotch.

I hope I can play some DDR tomorrow night after working 12-9.. we'll see!

sorry about the song.. I'm sort of obsessed with Reflection at the moment.

Mood: ecstatic.
yesterday i worked from 2-9 in the booth, was pretty good even if i didnt get to speak with Shannyn much.. there was still tons of Deb =) "she has a boyfriend" hahaha Cody betta backoff!

Then I picked up Adam and we saw people at Salem Willows for a li'l bit before they left, then I played some major DDR; whiteshirtkyd was there as well as this drunk mother and her family, she tried DDR...badly. And this kid, Paul, introduced himself as a light-standard old player.. he's 19 and goes to salem state for drama. Cool.

Today I'm helping Andrea by coming at 12:30 instead of 2 for another closing shift. Should be fun, the entire crew will be there: Eva, Shannyn, Deb! And me.

And after work....joy.... we get to see The Village! All of us! I can't wait.
