july 10, #2 [live, "selling the drama"] ok well today’s been really

great. really really great so far, hehe. adam came over this morning, we hung

out here and talked and walked around and yeah, it was great. we burned him

a cd of songs that he wanted and we sat on the couch and talked about such

things. i found out he’s still a virgin, hehe, cool cool. we also talked about

se and such and he said he’s not ready for it, neither am i really, so it’s

good to know that there’s no pressure or anything about it. things are good.

life’s good at the moment, and yeah, good times, really good times. i know

this is a vague update, but yeah. it helps. tomorrow night adam and i are

going up to camp. i have to pick him up from work about 8 and then we’ll head

up there, campfire starts at 9 (i think), so we should make it there in time

to see the whole thing. then after that there’s the call out ceremony, which

will be nice to see, not only cause of the hot guys wearing pretty much nothing,

but because it’s something that i’ve grown with, something that i’ve seen

every summer since i was 11 or so. and it’s a nice little ceremony. it’s kinda

like it’s a part of me now, the boy scouts and all, it’s going to be hard

to let them go completely, i should stop telling people that i was a boy scout.

but it’s hard to even do that. you know, it’s been such a huge part of my

life in the past years. grrr. damn boy scouts. i think my dad scared adam,

he came home and started yelling at andy cause he didn’t get the things done

that he was supposed to get done. so yeah, adam left. but we had a good time

this morning. well i’m heading to work, laters all.

july 10th [bush, "alien"] ok well today’s been a great and wornderful

day, it didn’t start out that way though. i got up and went swimming today

about 12. that was cool. i knew my dad would be home soon and he’d want to

go swimming so i just left the cover off of it. he got home and went out there

to go swimming, then he comes in after he went swimming and says "you

can’t put the cover on the pool when you’re done with it" and i said

"i didn’t put it on cause i knew you’d be home soon and want to go swimming"

to that he just repeated what he started with and i just ignored him. then

later i cut up some califlower to eat and i left the trimmings on the counter.

well he somes over and goes, "what you think you’re a guest in this house,

you don’t have to clean up after yourself" and i go "no i wasn’t

done yet." and then he goes on to say "well you know you’re not

a guest in this house, you could help clean up some around here" and

i just wanted to fucking scream at him. that stupid bastard, you know i’m

home like 3 hours a day other then when i sleep, i work 40 hours a fucking

week just like you do, just because it’s different hours doesn’t mean i don’t

work just as much as you do, and also i don’t eat here, so i don’t get dishes

dirty, i do all my own laundry, so all that’s left is the floors and unlike

him, i take my shoes off when i come in the door. so i don’t track through

the house. and then the other day, i did _all_ the dishes, washed them by

hand and everything. well instead of them putting them away or using them

they just left them there and piled more dirty dishes on top of them and empty

pop cans i just wanted to scream at them for that, i spent like 2 hours cleaning

those and they just wasted them all. grrrr. i hate my parents. then i went

to work, it was ok. people were overly rude today though and that got me in

a pissy mood. but then after work i went out to the loop and met up with adam.

that was *_REALLY_* cool. we met there with tara (i’m pretty sure that’s her

name) and xak, adam and i laid on the ground, adam had his head on my chest

and it was just soooooo great. i was like, oh yeah. lol. we just sat there

and talked for a while, then we went and mingled, there weren’t many people

there that we knew, so we just hung out and talked. it was a really great

night there though. i was happy, it put me in a great mood. so yeah, great

times, but then the whole damn 12:30 cerfew thing happeend so we had to leave,

i really didn’t want to leave, damn adam’s parents and the whole damn age

thing, hehe. oh well, it’s all good. he was talking about coming over here

tomorrow, errr, well i guess it’s today now, but yeah….oh yeah, jules claims

there’s a problem with the journal archives, "the text is all white"if you seem to be having the same problem e-mail me or something, and i’ll

look into it, cause i’m not having that problem

july 8, [REM, "try not to breathe"] ok well today’s been today

so far. work was ok. we had a shit load of stuff to do though cause the night

person and then morning crew didn’t do thier jobs, with just two of us there

we got it all done though, so that was cool. we worked our asses off though.

about 5 or so adam called and he wanted to do something tonight, but i had

to work tell 7, so i called him back after work and he couldn’t do anything

cause he didn’t weedeat the yard and he got in trouble, damn parents. that

messed up my plans for the night, so now i’m just sitting around waiting to

see if other people are around. cause i want to go do something tonight. since

i didn’t get to last night and the night before adam and i stayed here. that

was great and all, but three days of not going to the loop, OMG. i can’t beleive

it, no actually it’s kinda nice not going there everynight, but tonight i’m

in a go out type mood. well i’m going to get off the phone now so people can

call. laters all.

July 8, [lifehouse, "unknown"] ok well today had just been wierd.

well i went to work at 3 like i was supposed to, and the afternoon went normal,

nothing really happened there. but then tonight about 10 after karen the manager

left, we started having problems. there’d been this kid in there for like

2 hours talking on the phone, and he finally left, but then a short biut after

he left a lady came in and said there was a kid in the parking lot with a

gun. and we were like ohhhhh shit, so we locked the store down and shit and

called the cops. well like 3 showed up and one DNR guy. there was a gun, but

it was just a pellet gun, so it was good. i saw it when they took it off the

kid and i was like, omg. it really did look real. they took care of that shit

and left. but then shortly after they left this other guy came in. he’d been

in there all day and had just left when the cops started showing up. but he’s

in there all the time. but yeah ok well the lady that was working was like,

i don’t want to be left here alone with that guy and i was like, neither do

i. so i stayed and we called the cops on him to have him removed cause we

had talked to dustin the local cop before he left about him being in there

cause he was there for a LONG time today. but the shierff showed up and they

hung out there tell dustin got done processing that kid with the gun. and

then dustin came back and i don’t really know what happened, but i’m guessin

he just gave him a ticket or something, but he got him out of there. so yeah,

fun and excitment at kum and go. by the time i got out of there it wa too

late to go out, so i was just like, alright, i’m stayin here, so i called

vero and told them. i wanted to go out tonight. i was really in a mood to

go with people, but by the time i got out of kum and go and got home to change

it would have been 12 already and yeah, that would of only given me like 30

minutes before people would have started wanting to go home. so yeah. that’s

the story for tonight. dean and i talked for a bit too. hehe we were talking

about the whole july 15th road trip and i guess he asked jules if he wanted

to stay and dean’s apartment and he was asking me if adam and i wanted to

stay too, and i’m cool with it, but we’ll have to run it past adma’s parents

too. that could be a bit of a problem, but it would be a good place for us

all to watch movies, you know QaF. cause we could borrow jules DVD player

and stuff. yeah. i think this road trip will be really fun shit. ok i’m relaly

tired so i’m going to head to bed, night all
