don’t be a stranger!

Cordelia has reminded me of how many girls there are in our grade. And I deserved it, too.

Weekend Update

A quick summary of the weekend:

Friday: Stud Prod. The plays were good. Cordelia was in the last one, and she did a wonderful job. Hey play was probably the best, or at least the least serious. Sara’s turned out decently as well. At first it seemed like it was going to be overbearing and amateur, but it progressively got better. By the end I was thoroughly enjoying myself.

After the plays I called my dad and Mark and I walked down to the Union to get picked up. I went to his house to spend the night. We walked over to Pages for All Ages around 10:30, and sorta wandered around that whole area for an hour or so. We discovered a doorbell in the back of the Regency, and found a way onto the roof of the senior citizen’s center/home/thing. It was really tempting to go up there, but we might have woken someone up, and would have looked amazingly like burglars. Later we went to the gas station; I got some candy and Mark got a Sobe. Then we walked back to his house. Watched Freddy Got Fingered, and went to bed.

Saturday: Woke up around 7:30 at Mark’s house, laid in bed for a while. Got driven home a little before 9. Fitzed around the house for a long time, didn’t really do anything. That night I watched Mr. Deeds with the family. We rented M*A*S*H too, but I’m not sure when we’ll watch it.

Sunday: Tried to go to church, but for some reason there didn’t seem to be a service at the time we were there. They may have changed hours from what we were going off of, though. So my mom and I went home, picking up a paper on the way. Later that day I went to Walmart with my dad and sister, looked at DVD players for a good hour before concluding that there wasn’t anything worth buying there. We’ve got to go to Circuit City. Got some food, and came home. Homework. Watched Alias and Malcom in the Middle simultaneously, which worked only so well. Sleep. I thought about a lot of things as I lay in bed, but instead of tossing and turning I lay very still. It was calming. Eventually I got to sleep.

I should find a date to the Winter Formal. *starts humming “American Music” by the Violent Femmes* But really, here’s the ideal opportunity to use that new-kid appeal. Plus I’m something of a slut, so I’d go with half the girls in the freshmen/sophomore grades. But most of the sophomores either don’t know me well enough or not at all. A good deal of the freshman think I’m too weird or I wouldn’t want to go with. And yet there are still about a dozen girls I can think of. I should act rather quickly, methinks. But I don’t know what I’m talking about.

the romantically tragic

from last night

the romantically tragic

Ah, my stomach is starting to hurt. Proof that these antibiotics are working, I guess.

Background noise: Groove Armada, “Suntoucher.” Grooooooooovin’. Or maybe not, but it still sounds pleasant.

Another week and then winter break. Can’t wait, but at the same time I’m not too terribly concerned over the entire thing. It’ll be nice, but I don’t need a vacation. We haven’t had any time off since Thanksgiving, but that was only a few weeks ago. And I’ve fit in enough goofing off into my otherwise empty schedule so I’m not feeling overwhelmed or worn out. And that’s probably the wiser thing to do. It makes you feel important (or something) to run on empty and become… frayed. But it isn’t worth it. The romantically tragic no longer hold any allure.

Now I’m listening to Angels in Bondage. A horrible name, but the music is all right. Techno that’s pretty good, from mp3.com. I dunno if I should bring some in to run to in gym class. We need something, that’s for sure, ThePlanet is only so good for running to.

I was considering buying a whole lot of posters and using them all as wallpaper in my room. But I figured out that it would cost about $540 to buy them all, and I don’t have that kind of money to spend on wall decor. I doubt my parents would go for it, either. Perhaps I could do it slowly, in stages. Not sure.

I think I’ll go to sleep now.
