So we threw a party on Friday night. It was fun, but I expected more people to show up. We had this great big, humongous 15 gallon plastic we picked up at Wal-Mart for like $4.39. Into this huge bucket, we poured 1.25 Gallons of Everclear, ~12 gallons of water, 20 bottles of fruit juice concentrate and about 10 pounds of chopped up fruit – apples, pineapples, bananas, strawberries, watermelon and oranges; a glorious batch of jungle juice. Oh, and we had a quarter keg of Beehive from Bristol brwerey. I guess I’m just a serious wheat beer fan. All in all, it was a shitload of alcohol, and we ended up with about 8 gallons of juice and 8-10 gallons of beer. Tons of alcohol left. We’ll have pictures of this thing up hopefully tomorrow or Tuesday — as soon as pictures get scanned in. [b]Update 09/08/03[/b] – Pictures are here – [L=http://rand0m.org/images/endofsummer2k3]End of Summer 2k3[/L] So the next day, after about 4 1/2 hours of sleep, I woke up at like 11am. That’s a good time to wake up. Unfortunately, I was still really tipsy … and the hungover struck me right in the middle of the afternoon. So I was hurting pretty bad and didn’t want to do anything. Drank a beer, took some aspirin, and chilled out until we went over to this other party. Tony got their first, and took the jungle juice with him … Keen, James and I showed up later and had a decent enough time. All the people seemed like they were 16-19, so it was a little awkward because we didn’t know anybody and everybody was *way* younger than us. So that was okay, but we left around 2am (after they finished off this *HUGE* blunt) and got a good night’s sleep. I went out and got coffee with Janelle on Tuesday night. It was pretty fun. I feel pretty bad because I did a lot of talking, and when I go out 1-on-1 I really am looking to just be interested in what my company has to say instead of stealing the limelight — although I usually do that in groups, being selfish/loud/overbearing does not fly when on a personal outing. She is of course doing absolutely super in every way. She’s going to Rome for her fall quarter, speaks a bunch of languages, is totally in love with her pre-Randal boyfriend, Derek, has had a great summer, school is great, blah blah blah blah blah. I’m glad that she’s doing really well. I stuck my foot in my mouth a couple times … I’m good at that. And of course, I rambled on a lot. During the course of talking about me, I realized that, wow, I have done near nothing with my life for going on 3 years now! Woo! :-/ I also realized that I am a very stressed out, sleep-deprived, snippy, tense person. And that is why I do a lot of beer + pool — gotta chill out somehow. I also realized, after the meet up, that although I’m still totally in love with her, and by her, I mean who she is now, not who she was, she’s not the same girl I dated. Speaking of girls, I found out from James that Emily [L=http://rand0m.org/viewcomments.php?NewsID=379]still has me blocked[/L] on AIM. I honestly can’t fathom why, but I’ve been blocked for going on 7 months. I was thinking it might have something to do with Burnz pulling his stupid stunt and putting his pride before our friendship, but I spoke to James about it a little and he says that she said that it’s because we just “don’t get along.” I really don’t understand this, because Emily is a super girl and don’t really have much of anything negative to say about her. hmmm. The store is going to explode very soon. We have the money in the bank, and are going to be ordering everything this week. I am about to be a *really* busy guy.

Yah! This weekend was awesome. That was some awsome jungle juice. Sorry Tony that I couldn’t stay around for Chipotle. I had a girl waiting for me to get back. 😉 I really did have a lot of fun guys. I look forward to the next party and the store opening. I’ll try to make it down the weekend after next (I would go next weekend but its my Dad’s birthday). *** I miss the Springs [sigh] *** Tomarrow I finish my CSP App. Yay! Then to turn that in and cross my fingers.
