Well this last unbelievably long stretch of time has been unbelievably uneventful.
Wednesday I went to Fusion practice. We ran through Elegant People. Since everyone except me and Porcelain knew their parts I felt kinda odd. So I went home and downloaded it and I've been working on it. The parade on Wednesday was alright, except for the part that involved waiting 2 hours before we actually marched. We all found out that Chris has perfect friggin' pitch, and by adding the friggin' in there, I mean it's dead on, in a split second.
I pretty much trudged through Thursday and Friday, waiting for Monday to come. And it still hasn't.
So of course Friday was the first night of Hanukkah, and my parents and I went to Brett's house. It was the first time I'd been over his house since his grandpa died. It was strange, every year we'd go over there and Norman (his grandpa) would ask why I didn't eat latkes, and we'd joke about my poor eating habits. As I've said before, if not for this man I may still be watching Sesame Street and drinking out of a bottle. So that was strange. And Brett and I just hang out for a little bit in his room.
While I'm on the subject of Hanukkah, I realized something on Friday. I really don't like getting presents for Hanukkah. I don't know why. Like, all my friends always ask "What did you get?!" and stuff like that, but I don't like getting presents on Hanukkah. But only on Hanukkah. Any other time, feel free to get me presents.
So after we left Brett's house my parents dropped me at my grandparent's house, where I slept.
Saturday morning, went to Shul for the first time in a while. Afterwards I went to my Aunt's house which was, again, filled with presents. I sat there while all of my cousins freaked out about presents. Whee. I saw my other aunt who I haven't seen since my Bar Mitzvah. She gave me a card and a little cash. Nice of her to finally remember she had a nephew. And now she's married to some suicidal manic depressive. I swear, my extended family is full of the biggest assholes.
So, I came back home and worked on my website a bit. Figured I'd have nothing to do but then I decided I'd make plans. So around 8, Brett and Tara picked me up and we went bowling, where we met up with Erica, Andrea, and Anthony. Bowling with 4 of my best friends in the whole world, hooray. It was pretty fun, though my "game" was significantly off. Bowled a 113 the first game, which sucks of course. Then Anthony and I called Dave, because he's down from Boston. He said he'd come to the alley. Brett and Tara left, and Erica didn't wanna wait around for Dave even though Anthony and I really wanted to see him, but that's alright cause I had a feeling he wouldn't come anyway. So I gave him a call and told him to forget it and we'll see him before he leaves for Berklee on January 14th.
Anthony, Erica, Andrea and I went to Albertson's to buy organic milk, and then went back to Erica's house, where we played a little Catch Phrase and drank some hot chocolate. Andrea and I screwed with some people's minds online. Then we all migrated to Jason's room, where we stayed until 3 in the morning. We were just sitting there, some of us laughing about nothing (Erica), and some of us laughing about some certain places in Poland (Jason) and some of us breaking other people's BRAND NEW WATCHES (ANTHONY!!!!!!!!!!)...yeah. So that was fun. So I left by thanking Randy for letting us all overstay our welcome. Dropped Erica and Andrea off at Andrea's house, and Anthony at his.
Then we all went online.
Yes, it was a weak attempt to continue the all-nighter that was interrupted when Randy and Dianne wanted to go to sleep. If my memory serves me correctly, Anthony bit the proverbial dust first, and I followed at around a quarter to 5. I woke up literally 2 minutes later to see that Andrea and Erica signed off. So I retired for the night. Here I am now.
Today I'm...doing nothing, so if you wanna do something holla back at me, y0. Haha. No, seriously, if you wanna do something leave a comment or call or IM me or something.
