well, being bored and not wanting to start on my stupid english essay, I’ve decided to do a weekend post after all, since though my convo with tripp does sum it up, it was somewhat more exciting than that : P
friday alÃ© drove down from UNT and picked me up mid-8th period (my off period) and *yey* we escape to the freedom of the weekend. we headed to the parks mall to supposedly do some shopping for stuff he needed for his dorm/college life/etc, but got distracted by the weird stuff in that outdoor store (G-something), the shiney things in Spencers, and the cool boots in planet sole. so having accomplished nothing, we went back to chez-moreno and watched Princess Monoke (sp?) which was a pretty good movie.. i mean.. *avoids blows from various people* a WONDERFUL, GREAT MOVIE.
the movie was longer than we’d anticipated, so by the time we headed off to vikingfest (i wanted to buy a yearbook) it was nearly 7. we arrived, and stood in line so i could write out my blank signed check (compliments of LA) for the yearbook. (we contemplated making an escape to Cancun to live the high life, but in the end we were too lazy ; P ) we saw some people who recognised alÃ© and that was rather interesting, and also Victoria Smith and Armand. we met kathy, katie, emily, and tri, and i bought a [CHOCOLATE!] cupcake from theresa lim my jr friend from orchestra and health sci I last year.
then another escape, this time to get food. i tried to tell alÃ© about the thai place i went to dinner with gentry, aroon, max, and the crew of gentry’s friends when he came to visit, but i couldnt remember the name, or the location (i’m so cool like that). in the end, somehow, he figured out just where the heck i was talking about and we arrived at 8 or so. yum. food. good. i still dont know the name tho : P .
after the meal we didnt really have much to do, so we drove around for a while the usual alÃ© style (crazy and reckless : ) ) and blared BT. then we headed to river legacy to see if we could wander round the park a bit, but it closed at 10, and it was 10, so we decided not to take chances. we headed to gibbons park which is by butler instead and hung there for a while, trying to stargaze on a rather overcast evening. we actually saw a few stars, tho. i saw 3 or so and alÃ© proved he has better vision (or simply more convincing hallucinations) by seeing 4 or 5. then the escape for friday ended, and i returned home.
saturday was lazy and boring. i dont remember what i did, for most of the day, but it wasnt hw… it wasnt really anything productive. alÃ© picked me up for another escape around 6, and we went to see pirates of the caribbean, a movie that was actually really good and far exceeded what i thought it’d be like. i want the soundtrack, it was very noice (from what i could tell between being distracted by the action, plot, and whatnot : ) ).
sunday was lazy, and boring, and consisted of me actually doing hw… or at least, some of it. made my ‘bag of me’ for health science, and so lots of you now have your pictures stuck on a paper bag on display in mrs key’s room, if you care to know. i think my little speil today about coding, aim, and quakecon left most people staring blankly, but turns out jeff adams went to quakecon for saturday and he also recognised a few of you seniors (dont you feel special?).
so yea. that pretty much sums up the weekend part.
but, i have to include this ever-so-enlightening convo with chris, that shortly followed the one i posted earlier:
TrippSkiggins: OO! That reminds me
TrippSkiggins: I had the coolest dream last night
freezefire666: what was it?
TrippSkiggins: my cousins told me to watch this movie, so I did…
TrippSkiggins: It started by showing a bunch of gorillas, one of which had the face of Jim Carrey
TrippSkiggins: the the gorillas became lions (which I didn’t actually realize until after I woke up), and the Jim Carrey lion ran screaming through the pride of other lions and they all ran screaming after him…
TrippSkiggins: my cousins told me that he had just seen a ladybug and was scared
freezefire666: so random! i love it
TrippSkiggins: all the lions jumped this fence and I ran after them, also jumping like 10 ft-tall fences
TrippSkiggins: then there was the guy who owned the lions, and he went looking at the next farm to see if they had them
TrippSkiggins: I was then the Jim Carrey lion and went to some random store in the middle of this field which had a lady in it who loved cats.
TrippSkiggins: the end
freezefire666: that’s great
freezefire666: you win best dream of the week award
freezefire666: it made a grand total of 0 sense
also winning an award this week for ‘most strange pictures in a small amount of space’ is THIS SITE.
and finally: what better to use to hold my ID round my neck at Lamar than my QuakeCon nametag? aw yea… ; P
