the last time i made fluff, it sparked at me and the plug melted... we are all out of fluff and i need to make it before someone comes in and needs to make a bear.. but there is still plastic burnt on it and i'm terrified................
one, i’m getting really great at waking up early and also running on hardly any sleep. on days i’m off work, i feel strange like i have nothing to do, so it’s no longer overwhelming. i love my job and i get a lot of work done while i’m here. it’s just been nice.
twoooo, i finally have an ID and money on hand, anddd i’m about to get my card. which made me realize there is literally nothing holding me back from getting a tattoo or piercing. and even though i hate the walk to work, after the forth day it’s not too bad. i don’t mind it and i do like getting exercise. i texted my piercing friend and he is going to do mine cheap as we helped him get food when he was broke, so i should be getting my smiley real soon for about $10 tops. and i know i have enough to get a tattoo.. but i’m going to try to hold back. it’s hard though.
we’ll see. maybe after the first when we pay rent i’ll have a better feel on things.
my brother just dropped me off leftover pizza, so i’m going to chow down and then finish my to do list!
disclaimer: oh good lord. why is it that when nothing is going on in my life, i will write pages and pages about the normal chores and errands of the day, but when i do something awesome it doesn’t get mentioned?
this is supposed to be for documentation purposes and i’m documenting nothing.
i have been having some really great nights. i have. lots of hanging out really late, lots of not sleeping. they’re all blending together and i can’t place them but i know they’ve included alyssa, emma, and cyndi all together and random talks about nirvana and apartments and just good stuff. i’m so glad we’re all hanging out. it’s perfect and great.
the night that i remember fully was just a couple ago, and margot and the nuclear so and so’s was playing a set at fountain square for free. i worked for a couple hours, got a ride home from my brother, because he’s lovely, and napped for an hour and a half as i didn’t sleep. emma and cyndi came over luckily and woke me up, as i turned my alarm off in my sleep. i do that. got ready, got cigarettes and headed over with them and gordy. was given a coke with whiskey in it, which accompanied me and was nice.
now before i talk about how amazing the set was, i just want to talk about cincinnati. as we were walking to p&g we all kept talking about how pretty the city is. and it’s true. it’s gorgeous and getting prettier every day. does it need less big business bossing people around and more big business helping out? yes. it does. does it need more public areas? of course. but it’s still lovely. and the fact that every night of the week they have something going on at fountain square, all summer, is amazing. and for free? it just shows a lot.
now. the set. it was great. let’s see, they played dress me like a clown, quiet as a mouse, skeleton key and then the ones i was praying for them to play as tall as cliffs, talking in code, broadripple is burning, and a children’s crusade on acid. perfectperfectperfect. mm! there was something really special about seeing them next to emma too, as we talk about and participate in music so much but we’ve never seen a show together besides say anything, and even then we weren’t close to each other. so it was nice.
we met with ivy afterwards, walked to p&g and hung out and talked a lot. gordy taught me a game, and then emma and cyndi went to pick someone up so alyssa could leave work and gordy, ivy and i went to ivy’s house. her place is so cool. gah. gordy and i talked about the job market when ivy and her roommate nick talked about art. we all stood in the foyer talking about stem cell research, which then morphed into a talk about religion in politics, which turned into “playing god,” which turned into aliens, which turned into how no matter what proof was given for any side, there would be another delusional conclusion, which turned into what society and the world would be like if there was sudden undeniable proof that god didn’t exist. all in the foyer as we were leaving. it was lovely.
gordy and i climbed in the back of nick’s van and met up with alyssa, emma, and cyndi. gordy sat with them and ivy, nick and i sat together. i spent too much on gross food and went into a horrible giggle fit as i hadn’t slept yet.
went home, cuddled with boy, and fell asleep. it was so nice.
just a good good good day. i can’t wait to hang out with everyone again.
i can't tell if i'm doing it very wrong or very right...
at the pepper pod, every waitress knows what i’m going to order before i do. they usually say it before i do, or cut me off. two nights ago the weird newish fill in waitress who’s name i don’t even know and i never remember ordering from even cut me off with the, “cheese fries with ranch and hot sauce, and a salad with ranch and no tomatoes?” following with, “i don’t know why i even ask, haha.”
just called tom+chee and as soon as i said “hi,” got, “is this sarah? carryout, pep+chee and salt+vinegar chips?”
i need to start getting out more. and not to all the same places..
walking to work i have to cross two highway on ramps and one exit ramp that is around a curve covered by trees, and all that have a very short cross time and when they do it’s still right on red.
what i’m saying is i play frogger.
didn’t end up going to sleep last night, even though i was home earlier than i have been all week. stayed up alone doing absolutely shit nothing. oops. work until 4, or 5, or 5:30, basically whenever i get my jobs done i promised mark i’d do. gotta talk to the bro about a possible pregame, but if i crash i may need to go home and have a quick two hour nap. we’ll see.
just excited for the evening even though i won’t be rested at all. bed early as possible and then work.
keith gets his car tomorrow. then lots of moving and cleaning has to be done. which i’m terrified for.
giving away about $600 on the first for rent. getting my bank card soon.
