What an interesting weekend. There has been a lot going on!
Friday night John and I trekked out to Ocean Beach for Lydia and Patrice's bonfire. I had a pretty good time there. It was a GORGEOUS night. The sky was clear, the moon was full, and the ocean was...well, it was the ocean. And it's always beautiful. I got to see the girls fire dance for the first time. I was *very* impressed! I didnt know they actually danced
while they did it. Silly me. Burning the Christmas tree's were a little crazy. Steph got some great pictures
for the night. I got to spend some time roaming the beach by myself too. That was nice.
On Saturday, I had to work. There was the anti-war march going on just two or three blocks from me and I had to be working. We were busier than we ever had been. Usually our line for the bathroom was atleast 5 people long. When I left I caught the tail end of the march. Literally. These people must have slept in or something. There was 1 sign for every 15 peope meandering down the street. I'm sorry I missed it but Stephen took this picture
that cracked me up. "Dude, you're getting a NUKE!" *chuckle*
Saturday night John and I went out to Ocean Beach *again* for a party at his co-worker Alix's house. Emi was there! She is good friends with Alix apparently. Despite not knowing a single person besides Emi, John, and Alix, I had a great time. I talked a lot with Alix. I like her. I want her to come to Tahoe with us. Maybe she can teach me some shit. I think we ended up staying until 2 or something. I had a couple beers and got very tired, I passed out right when I hit the bed.
Sunday, John went to the Raiders game and I went home. I had every intention of actually watching the game but things out turned differently. I started reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
and promptly fell asleep at about 2. I had a long, winding, freaky nightmare (books fault?) and woke up to catch the head coach being interviewed. They're going to the Super Bowl! I'm happy for all you Raider fanatics.
So after the game, John picked me up and we had dinner at Gordo's (yuuuuuumy burrito turned home-made nachos!). Then we watched Whiteboyz
in Stephen's room. I don't know about that movie. The main character is so fucking annoying and frustrating. But the climax of the movie hurts my stomach to watch. The movie was a little too embarrassing and a little too intense. I just don't know, man...
I woke up to loudness this morning. The MLK march is going right down my street. It was loud and nuts. I was too groggy to grasp it for a second. "What's that noise? Is someone playing music from their car outside? And beating a drum? whaaaa?"
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!!!!!!!!
I don't have to work until 4 pm. I'm going to clean my room and the bathroom, do some kitchen work. And then I'm thinking of heading down to Any Mountain to pick up an application. Gonna have to call you-know-who first.
Good times. I had a great weekend. And this is shaping up to be a productive week! I wonder who is having a party on Sunday.... ?
