..because i prefer boxers over brief(s). Okay, that was lame.
so i went to another dress-up halloween thing this year. I was a brokeass, so i stole a uniform at work [we were a creepy hospital ward, wherein we did a shadow show were i was being operated on. we got 3rd place, goddammit] which was the most boringest costume on earth—a surgeon. I dragged my friend brendan with me, who was a clark kent hiding as superman. my roommate, though, thought he was a vampirisih businessman…which i think is a cooler costumer but alas.
So, we go to this party and i pretty much know more than half the people there. i got to see some old jiu jitsu folks which i really miss a bunch [yay! jiu jitsu!] and my old roommates. As soon as I enter, i’m offered a wine bottle. cause this is me:
–beer…i get tipsy but full. so i’m never too drunk
–hard liquor…i get loud and giggly
–wine…i get fucking belligerent.
so to make this a little more interesting, brendan and I play wine pong with the longstanding winners. we beat their asses to a pulp. although brendan, after seeing me down the wine and get more and more incapable of keeping my balance, says “i think this is a bad idea.”
and i say
“You’re a fucking pussy! you pussy!!” Then he helped win a game, so i forgave his pussiness.
Anyway, we went up against a very hard team, team discovery channel, and we beat them but…i had been nursing my beer and it had built up. Kevin yelled at me for not finishing my beer making him the default winner. However, to show him up, i downed the whole thing [at this point, i’ve had about a bottle and a half of wine] spilling it all over my shirt [making it look like i was a real fucking surgeon], said he was a pussy…then stumbled down the hall, kicked out kerbang aka john from the bathroom or i would hurl on him.
then i threw up. it was awesome.
Consequently, I was awarded two awards:
Best Party Foul – Anniewaits spilling red wine on the floor. Totally saw it coming, totally classic. Reminded me of old times.
Man Down Award – Anniewaits was spotted in “man down” mode on the downstairs couch. This was followed by Kerbang, but he was sick.
you can read the entire entry here yo
but basically, i am the winner of being the person who a) spilled alcohol and b) passed out from alcohol. god, i’m fucking lame.
so, i was offered another job outside of my current company in new york. god it was hard to turn down as it was offering pretty much twice my salary. however, they wanted me to quit NOW and move NOW….and my time isn’t up with massachusetts just yet. don’t get me wrong, if it were an offer to direct a film or edit a feature or do a PA job for Lost or something, i’d drop everything in a heartbeat. but it was like my current job but amplified…and i really didn’t want that.
however, everyone in my company is moving up and stuff and now i’m a bit frustrated. i should start doing something productive….like, i don’t know write scripts instead of livejournal entries. meh. i have a work rut right now. i’ll thinkof something.
So, my friend John, whose opinion I really respect, had lunch with me about a week ago or so. We have similar tastes in television and says “Dude, you totally have to watch LOST…it’s better than 24”. What? Better than 24? you have to be kidding me. how can anything be that addicting? Then he invited me to a Lost party…as Casa de Malden had been netflixing the entire show and they got the final 2 dvds. I missed the Lost party as I already had previous plans but I got so curious [and after reading a note that gumphood left me about Lost] that I bought the first season on a whim.
and holy shitballs. There are 24 episodes…about an hour each. I spent my entire saturday and sunday of that particular weekend watching it back to back to back to back. it’s so GOOD!! AHHHH. I was watching it in my room and i would scream intermittently and my roommate would say ‘sharon, are you ok?’ and i would reply ‘goddammit locke!!! ahhhhhhh…yes, please leave me be with my addiction.”
After i finished the season, i felt empty inside. Must have more..must have more. This is why shows that are finished are great, i.e. sex and the city, because there are always more seasons….Lost is currently on its fifth episode in season 2…so i can’t buy the damn show to catch up! I thought about the possibility of avoiding the season until the dvds came out.
but alas, i must have more. i must know what was in the hatch.
I ranted and raved at work…AND…my friend Brian surprises me one day…he says ‘i have a surprise for you. it’s about the hatch. go look on your computer’ He had downloaded the episode from his computer and then networked my computer with his so i could watch episode 1 of season 2 of lost. holy shitballs.
since then, my friend kate has been taping the episodes for me. so thus far, i have seen every episode of season 2 except for episode 2 and 4. [so i’ve seen 1, 3 and 5].
regardless, i am so addicted that i was contemplating of buying a video ipod [and i was very anti-ipod for awhile. damn ipods] so i could buy the episodes i missed and watch it at work. but its 4 bones so…do i REALLY want to buy
furthermore, to add to the addiction. kate had taped an episode for me and left it at my desk. i forgot it at work…went home …then as soon as i get to my street at 1:45am in the morning…I remember. FUCK! I left my lost episode at work! so i flip a bitch [this means, in california speak, i made a u-turn] and go straight back to work. I did not get home until 3am.
all to get a goddamned lost episode.
okay, i guess this wasn’t brief at all.
i end this now.
