01:10 am: "does anyone know how this one starts?"

first of all, when dylan's drunk, he's hilarious.  and also apparently doesn't know the lyrics to his own songs.

second of all, schnell's home, and that's the most awesome thing ever.  even better than sliced bread.

 

also, i stole this from sarah wolf who is living my dream circa 2003 by going to simon's rockCollapse )

10:05 pm: lay me down in silence easy to be born again
tonight, i finished part 1 of a novel, that i wrote. it's by far the longest thing i've ever written, and possibly the best, but i need to edit it.

i'm teaching myself how to play guitar.

this has been the most artistically...prolific(?) week of my life (i had a better word before, but now i forget).

also, van is the man.

If I ventured in the slipstream
Between the viaducts of your dream
Where immobile steel rims crack
And the ditch in the back roads stop
Could you find me?

09:39 pm: i have literally gone insane.

10:34 pm: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
i think if school didn't exist, i would never once in my life have been bored.

i went to a graduation party today, with lots of irish people who i didn't know, and about 7 people i did. one of the people we named "aunt crazy" because she acted drunk even though she wasn't, and convinced herself that one of us had once been at her house and watched a baseball game. so apparently no one likes ellen's boyfriend, and no one really likes ellen anymore. it's nice to have popular opinions.

instead of going out to dinner with my parents tonight, i sat outside, ate guacamole and chips, drank root beer, and listened to miles davis. xanadu.

NEW YORK - Saddam Hussein loves Doritos, hates Froot Loops, admires President Reagan, thinks Clinton was "OK" and considers both Presidents Bush "no good." He talks a lot, worries about germs and insists he is still president of Iraq.


hahahahahahaha.

12:03 am: Oh nooooooo, i'm sorry. the card says moops.
i don't really get why people are so upset at sandra day o'connor retiring. i mean, the woman was in favor of the death penalty for minors.

i think i've just become so apathetic about government that i don't even care.

10:13 pm: yeah you're worth the trouble and you're worth the pain
to steal from homer simpson, "women: the cause, and solution to, all of life's problems". that's pretty much how i feel about life.



"women: can't live with them...pass the beer nuts."




"Women."

"That reminds me of something my uncle used to say."

"Oh yeah, what's that woody?"

"Women."

07:08 pm: well of course i'd like to sit around and chat, but someone's listening in
so i didn't win that contest, which means i didn't win $1200, which is pretty much what i expected, but oh well.

also, i went to the library to ask about a job because they need to move books because they're closing for two weeks this summer while they're expanding, and this random woman grabbed me and was like "are you here to volunteer" even though it was supposed to be paid, and i was like "uhhhh" and she was like "come with me, be my personal assistant". what the fuck.

also, i don't think listening to radiohead is good for my health. i bought amnesiac yesterday, and last night i was really depressed, etc. "pyramid song" had me literally paralyzed.

09:28 am: then you ask me why i don't live here. honey, do you have to ask?
so i did it. i quit my job and i'm very proud of myself. especially since they lost my pay check from two weeks ago. why the hell would i ever want to work there?

and my mom isn't quite as pissed as she could be, although that's probably because my dad is still asleep, and hasn't yelled at her about it yet.

11:00 pm: a declaration of my rights as a man.
i'm going to quit my job. mostly because my foot has started hurting again, and i don't really want to stand up for 8 hours tomorrow. and my boss lied to me, and it's not really worth $80 or so a week to swallow my pride and do a good job there. even though my parents expressly told me i couldn't quit until i had a new job. which means either a) i need a new job stat, b) i need to win that writing contest on july 1st or c) i need to have my parents committed to a mental institution.

also, i haven't talked to ellen in a month, and it only took about five minutes to get rid of the awkwardness. so that's good.

so, should i quit with much bravado and drama, or quietly, or sarcastically, or what. i'm sure it'll end up being quiet, because, while i can make anything of myself with a keyboard or a pen, i can make little more than a bumbling idiot of myself in real life. it's a problem. maybe internet dating is for me, although i'd rather have my toenails pulled out by the roots than internet date...if that's the proper phrase. but i digress.
