Brian Regan – “You Too & Stuff”
Answers to the Truth or Fiction game: Number one is false, and the rest are true. I’ve never been to Disneyland and I hate spinning rides; probably the only soup I don’t drown in Saltines is ABC soup; I was really into All-4-One when I was about 10 or 11; I started playing the flute in 6th grade only because they said I could eventually move to playing piccolo; and I’ve known my friend Todd (as well as some acquaintances I don’t normally talk about) since kindergarten. So yay, both of you only got one wrong!
Yesterday we went swimming with Callie and Paul, at a place called Yale Lake (I think?). Anyway, it was lots of fun and that’s why I didn’t post anything yesterday. We had a picnic with fried chicken and lemonade and it was delicious. I even got a bit of a tan, and Daniel burnt a bit, but we had tons of fun playing on a big log and sunning ourselves on the grass.
Then last night, our friend Asa showed up because he was on his way back to Idaho from L.A. He stayed the night and we went to several different music/book/movie stores today trying to find Aqua Teen Hunger Force on DVD and ended up just renting it instead. It’s… interesting. Meatwad is pretty cute. In a meaty, waddy kind of way.
Also yesterday, I bought a supercute pine dresser for my room. It was from Goodwill and it was expensive for being from there, but pretty cheap for what it would have been new. Now I will have a place to put clothes. It just doesn’t fit in my room, really, which is further incentive to call about new apartments.
At one or two of the various stores we went to today, I got a pilates DVD and book for $8, as well as a KMFDM single and NIN’s “Closer” single thingy. And “The 25th Hour” on DVD. I love that speech that Edward Norton gives in the bathroom when he’s having lunch with his dad. I mean, it’s not that I agree with it, but I think it’s very powerful. So yay.
I’m finding that I really don’t deal with heat well. It makes me irritable. I’ve been irritable all day, the sort of irritable where everything annoys me. I’ve just felt exhausted and hot and grouchy today. Mostly too hot. And grouchy. I’m surprised Daniel hung out with me for as long as he did. :lookup: Any remedies for heat? We each have a fan, but they don’t do a lot of good.
