(otherwise known as a Party Post!
I'm currently listening to: Third Eye Blind's "Motorcycle Drive By" on LAUNCHcast
It's been one helluva weekend. Friday was fun. No classes, so I slept in and puttered around the house until work. After work was Jessi's suprise party, thrown by her mom. I was slightly worried about posting, as I didn't want to say any undue words in that general direction. So instead I puttered about on the internet for hours at a time, and worked on my play. Needless to say, there was more playing on the internet than writing my play. Work was all right. I've managed to get it from Sue two days in a row- constructive criticism.
After work was gathering my stuff togeather for the wild weekend ahead of me. I was running late, so Lar picked me up from my house and we travelled over to Jessi's... where Drac was waiting for me!
Attendance for the suprise party is as follows:
Jessi- the guest of the hour and the reason for the season
Athene and John, Tommy and I, Von and Bobert
Laura, JR, and Brooke
Mike- Jessi's boyfriend
Jessi's mom and her boyfriend
The stripper that Jessi's Mom invited
The stripper in training that came with the stripper
Yup! A stripper! Well, Jess is 20 now... Mrs. B has always been really free and slightly wild about things like that. Not that I didn't enjoy watching Athene get thrown around, or Jessi's hands balled up, but the paper crinkling to fill out his thong kept bringing me back to reality. Besides, I'll take Drac over a blonde policeguy any day of the week. Melody was conspicuous in her absence, but it was apparently because of said stripper. But couldn't she have come over afterwards? Or before? (sigh) Oh, well.
Other eventfulness? I figured out T likes Homestar Runner
! Huzzah! Here comes the Thnikkaman!!!
Stayed over at Jessi's, then was going to go to Mardi Gras down in Soulard, but ended up going over to Drac's father's house. I had a rather uncomfortable lunch with Drac's Mom, Dad, and sister... in another situation, it could have been damn explosive. Since it was in a public place, though, we had to keep emotions simmering at the surface. After the three hours in North County, I was glad when we were back on the road. We phoned Jess for directions to Mike's place in Eureka, and she gave us partial. Laura caught up with us, but Drac decided to be a jerk and sped up. Irony is, Laura knew where to go, we didn't, so we ended up having to pull over and wait for Jess while Laura passed by us and beat us to Mike's place.
Party People attendance II (by cars):
Jess and Mike
Tom and I
Laura, Bobert, Von, JR
David and Melody
Amy and wotsisname... Drew?
If Jimmy was feeling uncomfortable, he was pretty cool about not showing it off. Poor guy never really talks to any of us, so he gets left off for lack of association. Amy was showing off her new boy-toy. I wonder which one will get tired of the other first. Hopefully neither, but I think Amy's going to want someone she can order around, and still be perfect. In other words, a bi-butler guy that she can screw if and when she should choose in the long term. There was pizza, doughnuts, and double-stuff Oreos for food, as well as a pizza run for David, which also ended up as having Poppycock on the reciept. (David saw me drooling and took care of it... but I'll just have to repay him later. Next time I catch him drooling over something and have a few bucks to spare...) It all culminated in a trip en masse to Johnny O's in Fenton, where most of the crew went home, and Jess was the only one staying in Eureka. I would've, but Drac needed to get some sleep, and I needed to get to school on Monday. So no staying behind for me.
Sunday, Dad didn't wake me for church, so I slept about an hour or so extra. Worked some more on my play, and then considered attacking my art project. Ended up spending endless hours reading the archives for Dominic Deegan
. Go figure. Dad scared the hell out of me by inviting his girlfriend Kathy over for soup, and tidying up the table I was working on... so I invited Drac over to meet her. Drac dropped by to to drop off something I had left over at his dad's on Saturday, but didn't stay long. Kathy ended up not coming over after all, and I sent Dad out of the house. "Don't stay on my account! The soup will still be here when you get back. Go! Go have fun with Kathy and her friends, Dad." And thusly, he left.
Drac stopped by later, at my request, and we talked about things until about midnight. Of course, he came over at about ten-thirty or so...
Half-past midnight, Drac's mom called, asking if he was over. Hoping he wouldn't get in trouble, I apologized for asking him to stay so late without calling or anything. I fell asleep with my cell phone in my hand, just in case.
