my legs are fucking dead, from the third straight night of longboarding summergrove for 3 hours. but, I’m regaining all the confidence I had before my last big fall. I was afraid to push my limits before this week. I’ll usually try anything once, but I wasn’t too keen to aim for the big hills in Athens. now I feel pretty good about taking just about any hill. I’m pleased with my performance, and believe i’ve added a little style to my carving. I love my longboard and the current set-up I’m running. it’s leaps and bounds faster than anyone else can go.
so that was a lot about longboarding…
I’m pretty stoked to hang out with molly Sunday. I’m HELLA stoked how much she likes my friends. seriously, I’m gonna meet her friends Sunday, and she invited Noah and Jess too! then whenever she and I can squeeze some time together, are going to begin a movie nerdfest of epic proportions. SHIT. I need a DVD player. looks like I’m bringing a PS2 to Athens.
now, if I can just get her into longboarding…
so so fresh.
I’d like to do something with the intensity and passion we had while we did Godspell. that truly was my finest moment as a member of any stage crew.
from now on, I’m gonna try to channel that much energy into all the things I love.
I was gonna recap the events of this weekend, but I didn’t feel like I was doing it right. suffice to say, molly and I had a fucking awesome weekend. also, cloudy with a chance of meatballs IS FUCKING AWESOME. it was my favorite book in elementary school, and the movie was everything I wanted it to be and more. PLUS it was in 3 FUCKING D. YAY.
HOLY SHIT WHERE DID MY SOCKS GO?
& it is going to knock your socks off.
it’s been a super fucking good day.
stuff like this is weird. I’m not saying it makes sense, but newnan is still considered a “disaster zone” after all that hail we had like six months ago.
really? because…it isn’t. 477 people have died of H1N1 in the US…30,000-40,000 people die of the regular flu each year in the US. 630,000 people die of heart disease and 72,000 die of diabetes… So maybe we should just declare illness a national emergency. Oh good gracious.
it was just some assholes with fireworks.
scared the fuck out of me though.
I’m pretty sure someone just fired a gun on my street. about six times. I guess it could have been fireworks, because it wasn’t very high pitched. but shit shit shit it sounded like a gun.
LIKE THIS, WHEN CLEARLY NO ONE IS ANGRY, EXCITED, OR DOING IT FOR “TEH LULZ.”
I SURE WISH YOU IDIOTS WOULD STOP.
a plane crashed like a mile from my house this morning.
well a few really.
woke up, shook out the dead leg, and went to work with my folks. helped them out, then drove up to Atlanta to meet Noah while Jess is getting doctored up. we head to piedmont park and longboard. it was nice. when Jess wrapped up we picked her up and she told us a lot of good stuff.
then began the search for Chinese food. see, Athens, in all it’s hormone and booze fueled glory, lacks solid Chinese food. nothing will ever compete with dollar scoop in my heart. ever.
so we set out, and jess’ GPS has a stroke or something so it takes us forever to decide to swing by the mall or Georgia. first, we found excellent Chinese. second, I fucking destroyed mine. third, we find the longboard store.
oh the longboard store.
as soon as we entered we saw some of the most beautiful boards I’d ever laid eyes on. it would be a shame to even ride them, and tarnish their beauty. I left the store with a small but noteable erection.
then I was introduced to the “doozie.”
take two cookies, slap some icing between them, devour.
it was good, but the doozie was the straw that broke the camels back. I felt terrible after eating it. I looked half dead. pictures will surely be on facebook soon. then we got back to jess’ and chilled for a bit before watching batman beyond: return of the joker. fucking love that movie. that show was so badass. I also got a date with molly. meeting her for drinks Thursday.
pretty awesome day,
