Things have been going my way lately, and I'm starting to like it.
- I get to visit Keri this weekend from Friday to Monday
- I returned a library book on Friday that was due January 5th, and didn't have to pay late fees because apparently you get a 20 day grace period
- Bob Dylan is coming to Chicago for 4 shows in April and Keri is finally going with me to see him
- I went on a date Friday
- We got an extremely high water bill last week, so we called to ask about it, got our toilets fixed because apaprently they always run, and got the bill cut in half
- Pompeii is finally on tonight. It's actually on the Discovery Channel though, not the Hisotry Channel, thanks Jenn for making me look it up
- My mom gave me $100 for food
First of all, I'm going to ISU for three nights. Three fucking nights! I am so excited. Usually when I've gone there to visit, I've never been able to stay more than one night, so this is fuckass exciting. Chandler is giving me a ride on Friday, but he wants to come home Saturday and I don't want to, so I have to take this bus home to Chicago, then have my dad drive me back to school on Monday morning. I was worried that I would be overstaying my welcome, but as Keri put it, "You've been overstaying your welcome for the last 19 years, so why would 3 more days be a problem?" I couldn't have said it better myself. Also, everyone congratulate Keri because she got laid last night. We had a contest with two of her friends, that you had to get laid by Sunday, and the losers give the winners a hug. A pretty hefty prize, I know. You'll get your hug this Friday, whore. Didn't mom teach us not to be like peanut butter?
Bob Dylan loves me and I get to see him either April 1st or 2nd. I saw him for the first time when I was 16, so this will be my ninth time in a little less that 5 years seeing him. Fuck yeah bitches.
I went on my first actual I'll-pick-you-up-at-7:30 date this Friday. I went with this guy Antonio (who's 6 feet,6 fucking inches tall. Good lord. I said I wanted a tall man, but not the Jolly Green Giant) who is in 2 of my classes this semester. He had asked if I wanted to hang out on Friday, so the rest of the week, I was joking around saying I had a date, but I really thought we'd just be hanging out with friends or something. He called Friday and asked if I wanted to go out for dinner, so I guess it was a "real" date. With a name like Antonio, I thought he was Italian or something, but I guess he's half Mexican. I don't know how that is possible, because he looked whiter than me and as Emily put it "looked British". Jenn, maybe you guys are related. What part of Mexico are you from again? Sorry, I probably sound like Jay and the whole Kenosha thing (yeah thats right bitch, it's getting old) so I'll stop calling you Mexican. But anyways, back to Antonio. He told me I had pretty eyes, a "beautiful smile that lit up my face"(how do I repsond to that? 'Uh.. you too') and I looked "cute". Cute? Guys shouldn't say that word I've decided because it makes me feel uncomfortable. Say something manly like "Goddamn you look my favorite toolbox" or something. Ok, that didn't make sense, but I couldn't think of anything. We're going to go see a movie on Tuesday, but I'm not even sure if I like him or not. He seems like a nice enough guy, but there's just something a little off about him, and I don't know how to describe it.
The thing that sucks about this situation is that he's in 2 of my classes, which means there is no way to avoid him. Not that I want to avoid him yet, but I'm always preparing for the future. I hope this doesn't turn awkward on Monday. Wish me luck.
Last night at Chandler's this girl gave me Joni Mitchell's album Blue, which I had asked her to burn for me like 3 months ago, the one time I had met her. She actually remembered to bring it this time, and I thought that was fucking awesome. I didn't even remember what cd I had asked her to burn for me. Thank you again Elise!
Good thing Desperate Housewives is a rerun tonight, so I can watch Pompeii be destroyed. Yes, I am obsessed with that show and am not afraid to admit it. I'm really excited for the Pompeii thing tonight. They've been hyping it forever. I guess it first aired on the BBC in 2003 and got really high ratings, so it must be good. Remember - Discovery Channel, not History Channel. Also, Bill, Jon Heder aka Napoleon Dynamite will be on Jay Leno February 2nd, so watch it.
Also, I was just reading some on the Sundance Film Festival, and a screening of the movie Strangers With Candy played there. I hope it gets picked up by a studio soon and they release it because I can't wait to see it. Hopefully by the end of this year it'll come out.
I think this is too long and boring, so I'm going to wrap it up now. A week from today is the Super Bowl. Go Eagles, bitches.
