Man, it’s been a good weekend. On friday night, I went up with Tony to his Brother-In-Law’s place [his name is Alan (sp?) and he is the penultimate capitalist … kind of an ass, but very good at what he does] and played poker with a bunch of guys. I actually came out positive by a whopping $0.45. Last time I went [a few months ago] I got reamed like Jenna Jameson and lost like $20. However, as is tried and true, when we played pool for money I started playing miserably. Don’t know what it is up with that … pool + money = bad-pool-playing-me. I had a really good time up there, and look forward to doing it again 🙂
On Saturday, I slept. Then I woke up around 11ish to the sound of my phone ringing and Steve’s cheery voice 😉 Went over to his place, fixed up my rapidly-disentegrating [only the body, mind you] truck and then we went out. We did some stuff. I forgot exactly what we did, but we ended with rounding up Tore and Emily and Ben [Steve’s brother] and going and seeing “Not Another Teen Movie” at the south Tinseltown :: we all got in free because Ben works there, which is hella cool … The north cinemark is a little nicer, sure, but goddamn, it’s a 30 minutes drive and it’s not free. The south Cinemark works just fine for me :: same cardboard popcorn, same soda-laden floors, same magical movie-feeling. Right. Then we went and ate over at Village Inn, and finished off the night over at the perk. [oh, throw in a HPI server crash and going to my office in there] … I was kinda worried that cramming two distinct, separate parts of my life [Tore & Emily and then Steve & Ben] would not go so well, but it seemed like everyone just rolled with it — which made the night a lot better. Even though we whored out Emily’s study time, I think everyone had a good time :: I know I had a really good time with you guys 😀
And now for the completely random stupid shit you expect from this site, which doesn’t include my day-to-day details. Okay, my question :: Why the do I hang onto old stuff? I dont’ know why, but I seem to just cling to old shit so I can reminisce and ‘go-back’. It’s fucking whack. I say this because I’ve noticed it a few times — my search / archive for old stuff. I found the old IBu, I found my old website layouts, and I was going through my e-mail on Friday, and I couldn’t fucking believe I had that much old e-mail. Seriously, after cleaning out and organizing my obscenely large mailbox, I had just over 4,000 messages running around. Some of them are old, and the majority are either A) heart-wrenching, mind-bending painful e-mails to long-lost lovers or they are B) Completely worthless bullshit e-mail that has absolutely no value. And you know what? I keep them hanging around, nicely put into the ‘archive’ folder, never to be read again — until I feel the need to dive back into history.
Update: Oh yea! I forgot to say — “Not Another Teen Movie” is hilarious. It is bust-a-nut, non-stop laughter the whole time. It’s satire and spoofing of the typical teen angst flicks is raunchy and superb at the same time. Gonna go see Vanilla Sky sometime soon, so I’ll have a blurb about that up sometime.
Update: Here’s a nice e-mail that I recieved today —
“ Click here to get Real Drugs, Real Cheap – TODAY!”
Doesn’t that just inspire you? It sure makes me glad to live in the U.S. today.
Update, **With A Question!: Okay, it just hit me. What if the comments get long, and you have to do a bunch of scrolling to read the comments, then go to the little box and fill it in, and back and forth and back and forth. That would kinda suck. Because of this, should I make the little fill-in form part [the white boxes on the
