my mother discovered the type of girls that i like. midway through our saturday wine tour she paused to point out a girl across the room. medium height, slim build, long dark hair, sharp features and big green eyes. “that’s the kind of girl you’re attracted to, right?” i shrugged and nodded. “i knew it,” she said. then she sighed.…

i feel like i’ve accomplished a lot today, which is strange considering what my deeds look like, tallied up: – did the easiest part (ie, the non-writing part) of an 8 page paper due thursday– started the outline for my research paper, the outline being due wednesday– wrote approximately 10 pages of my screenplay– read a shitassload of return of…

thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday. the four day weekend isn’t much longer than my usual three day one. eating a ton of food has never really appealed to me. getting together with my extended family is generally awkward, since i’m in a strange age group removed from both my predominantly younger cousins and the older aunts and uncles. social…

i havent gone to sleep before 2 in over a week. i think that says a lot about how busy things have been. thurs: the riv with brandon, drew and nicole. drew won a shirt from the jager girls by booty dancing. skills. steve and spoelstra and others showed up – it was steve’s ladyfriend’s 21st. i dropped out early…

let’s see how succinct i can make this weekend recap while still retaining the essential information. thurs: edward 40hands while watching tv. DRUNK. randy pounded one in 4 minutes, two in 16. i had to tear one empty bottle off since i was otherwise stuck in the bathroom. 40-fail. uneventful night otherwise. fri: zurmy baby’s 21st. hit up the riv…

on a lighter and entirely separate note, i just listened to a poet/essayist named thomas lynch speak. he was absolutely fascinating and, for once in my history of listening to writers pontificate, he actually seemed to have some worthwhile advice on writing and, perhaps more importantly, getting published. success! every time someone asked a question, he would respond in the…

i could stand to actually bother going through with the “talks” i spend three days psyching myself up for. you know, actually find out just what the hell is going on in my life. it’d be a spectacular choice to have made a few hours ago. BUT WHATEVS nick strong played a couple of songs on his geetar tonight. i…
