.: I’m staying with my brother and grandparents for spring break. Several little thoughts and events have occurred since Saturday, among them:
Marioushia, Mariaosa, MarioshaOscar’s Russian friend thinks my blog lacks those all-important personal stories, containing instead too much geek stuff. Well, this post should show her. My guess is that it’ll show her why I opt for geek stuff.
- My friend Oscar met my friend Geoff, and Geoff’s friend Chris met Oscar’s friend Bryant. My brother was also there. Many things were said, most of those things were heard, and I wasted $6 at a parking garage.
- If I ever get around to making a movie, I want one of the scenes to be a neurotic guy and a normal girl out on a first date at a fast food restaurant. The cashier says, “For here or to go?” and at the same time the guy responds “For here” while the girl says “To go” — and instantly the next scene is the guy explaining to his friend, “It just wasn’t going to work.”
- Wikivandalism, when done right, can be hilarious.
- Late one night, about a week or so ago, I struck a car seat in the middle of the road. I don’t mean the kind of car seat you put a baby in; I mean a literal seat from a car — metal parts and everything — in the middle of the lane. It did some pretty nasty damage to the front of my car, including a small dent to the radiator. Naturally, people want to know why I hit it. I think my response from now on will be, “Well, I was driving 85 mph so I could get home faster, my headlights were off so I could conserve battery power, and while I was on the phone asking my brother which song I should play on the iPod I had in my hand, I saw a car seat in the middle of the road and thought to myself, ‘Eh, might as well.'” For some people, that explanation is far more believable than an explanation that contains a concept as bizarre as an accident.
.: My sister should be in town any minute now. Maybe I’ll tell her all the geeky stuff I was going to put into this post.
