What lessons were learned while going out with my totally hot roommate Sarah last night?
First, she sometimes starts drinking at 4pm in the city and continues when she gets back to the local bars. When she does this, she uses big words and is all philosophical. Oh, and she wants you to catch up to her level of drunken REALLY QUICKLY.
Secondly, when you leave her to go to the bathroom, you should expect no less then four 20-something boys to swarm her. Sure, they'll talk to you, her not-as-hot roommate but she'll be bought the drinks and she'll be asked out to dinner.
Mostly fun, kind of disappointing.

It's really too bad you can't choose who you're physically attracted to.
I may have met the sweetest, most considerate, really good friend out here. I mentioned that I was down and that music generally cheered me up. So, he made me two mix cds and mailed them to me. What's better than that?
Well, on the cover of one of the cds he put the Packers logo.
Thanks for the smile today.

I read a book or an article or something once that said when you're trying to get over a relationship, you're supposed to mentally kill off the person. That way, when you're tempted to call them, email them, or contact them in any form, you are less tempted because THEY'RE DEAD -- in theory.

I can understand the theory and it kind of makes sense....but I'd rather not think of this person as dead. That would make me cry even more than just not having him around. Not around = bad. Dead = even worse.

Feh.

Don't know what makes a friend suddenly stop communicating, but it sure sucks when it happens. And without any apparent justification.

I really hate having to count on others for things sometimes. Yes, I could go to a movie by myself, and yes, I could go for a bike ride by myself, but it's just more fun to do things with others.
The roomie swears she'll play tennis with me one of these days.....though she's said that twice before.
Just disappointed in others sometimes. I'm sure there are times when others are disappointed in me, too, so it all comes out in the wash I suppose.

Have kitten, will travel


I can't tell if she's saying, "Please don't go anywhere" or "Take me with you."

Losing my abilities

As we age we're supposed to lose certain abilities, no? We're more likely to have aches and pains and we're less and less good at athletics and our memory starts to fade and we're more prone to run on sentences -- apparently.
I'm prepared to lose some abilities as I age. But, I never thought I'd lose my ability to sleep in.
Now that drum corps is done and I finally have a weekend where I really have to do NOTHING, I was looking forward to sleeping in. Well, Saturday I was up at 8:30 and Sunday I was up at 9:30. Sure, that's later than I would get to sleep on a workday or a normal drum corps weekend but I was still looking forward to sleeping in later. Especially since I didn't get to bed until 2am last night and was washed in alcohol.

09.11.06

When one has to fly out of NY on the fifth anniversary of 9/11, watching a couple hours of documentary on said tragedy seems like the exact wrong thing to do.
Back to football I think...

Lots and lots and lots and lots and...

lots of stuff have happened since the last entry. Lots of stuff. Too much to mention maybe. Short recap:
Car got hit-and-run by a guy in CT. Found the guy, still need to get the police report. Not so cool.
Drum corps (www.bushwackers.org) took 3rd in the World Championship and the hornline took home the high brass award. Super cool.
Those seem to be the things on either end.
