April 2003

I’ve been hanging out with Amanda and Amanda recently since this week is their spring break.

We were at the Block yesterday, and Thomas joined us as well. We ate at Corner Bakery, which was unfortunate since I really dislike Corner Bakery. I mean, I don’t just “not care for” it, I actually dislike it. They convinced me to try something new, so I had the “chicken pesto macaroni” or something. It was really bland and either undercooked or overcooked (I’m not sure which is which) compared to the pasta at Disneyland (which, incidentally, I had just last Thursday with TJ, Rachel, and Dennis). I also had Corner Bakery’s coffee to drink, and it tasted like mud. And no, it wasn’t “fresh ground” that morning. So yeah… Corner Bakery still a big disappointment.

The day before, Easter, Amanda and I hung out at Amanda’s house. Er… Dolan and I hung out at Lutsky’s house. We watched This Is Spinal Tap and hung out with her white-trash-with-money family. Also the Amandas and I played with my karaoke thing, which was somewhat annoying. Oh, and earlier on Easter I spent time with my family at Grandma’s house. Dean was in town visiting, so he and I talked about music and computers for a long time.

On Saturday I once again hung out with the Amandas, but this time at Fashion Island. They told us there would be a twenty-five minute wait at Cheesecake Factory, but it ended up being nearly an hour. Yikes! I had a chicken quesadilla, which is actually the same thing I had today for lunch (except today it was a pita quesadilla at Rainforest). After Fashion Island, the Amandas came back over to my apartment and we played a rousing game of “If” which included the very thought-provoking, “If you could witness one biblical event, what would it be?” I found that intriguing because although the skeptic in me would go for witnessing one of Jesus’s supposed “miracles,” I decided that if it actually happened, I’d feel obligated to believe in Christianity, and I don’t want to feel that way. So instead I decided I’d want to hear his “sermon on the mountain” so that I could hear what he actually said instead of someone’s interpretation. And I’d still be able to decide for myself whether God existed. So yeah, after that Lutsky decided she’d let me take naked pictures of her sometime, but I really don’t think that’s going to happen since she’s just a big tease.

Friday… hm… I don’t remember a single thing about Friday. How weird is that?

Before that, I was hanging out mostly with TJ.

Thursday I went to Disneyland with TJ, Rachel, and Dennis. We went on the new Winnie the Pooh ride, which was a big disappointment. TJ used his charm (?) to get the fastpass lady to let us in even though we didn’t have fastpasses (because the line was eighty minutes). This, of course, made me feel really guilty for cutting, but it ended up being a lame ride anyway (although it would be fun with alcohol), so I’m glad we didn’t wait in line for it. Rachel mentioned that she got drunk in the parking lot once and then went to Diz, and that it was really fun, so I want to try that sometime.

I didn’t receive a single email today. Also, it’s a Saturday, and I woke up this morning and took a shower, but I haven’t left the house all day. Actually, that’s an exaggeration. I left to get the mail out of the mailbox out front sometime this afternoon. I also opened the door once to remove a PizzaLand ad placed on my doorknob by someone, but I’m not sure if that counts as leaving.

Yeah… life is pretty lonely right now. I’m watching stand-up comedy specials that I’ve seen before. I don’t mean that I’m watching stand-up comedy specials, and I’ve seen a few of the comics before. I mean that I’ve watched about a dozen stand-up comedy specials today (after I got tired of the movies that have been running all week on the Love Stories channel), and I’ve seen every single one before. I have this theory about reruns: If there’s a rerun on, it means that the network can’t believe you’re actually at home right now, or at least they’re sure as hell not going to waste fresh programming on the losers who are home all Saturday night.

Yesterday Amie made a typo while talking to me online. She misspelled the word “awkward” as “awkwark.” I liked her new word instantly because it was really funny-looking, and then I quickly discovered that “awkwark” is really fun to say out loud too!



I have techno-lust for the Pentax Optio S. It’s a 3.2 megapixel digital camera with a 3x zoom lens, and it’s small enough to fit inside an Altoids tin. In order to get it to be only 3/4 of an inch thick, they had to invent a new type of lens. The elements in the middle of the lens actually slide up into the top of the camera (while the front elements move backward like they normally do) when the lens is closed.
