hey dude

it's a little wild and a little strange, when you make your home out on the range...
that theme song is in my head and i hope that it is now in yours. last week was so intense. my mom and i ventured to ny for approx 24 hours to see my big sis in her new york stage debut, i got food poisoning, i went to my first packer game, i saw talladega nights and i saw snakes on a plane. all things that are wonderful, but all in a row made me almost die. now i must sleep.

more stories later, but for now here's a quote (the quote of the week)

a man on his cell phone in the middle of the lambeau's parking lot:
"dude fred, it's not my fault you're drunk and stupid and don't know where we are. dude, i'm by the car, if you weren't so drunk and stupid you would know where that is."

dreams of a full size bed on the ground

i am very sad to see my friend/roommate angie move out next week, but i think the prospect of not sleeping on a loft for the first time in three years is sooo exciting. it's only a week and a half til our two roommates move out and then it'll be just kim and i, livin like rockstars. this weekend was o to the c. (note: sorry if you didn't know, but i love me some popular phrases even if they were never in style or are no longer, such as ridin the salt truck and oh snap)

the weekend was one huge juxtaposition. last friday = the drunkest night i have ever had without combusting. it was a fabulous time and although i do remember the events of the night, i did think that some parts were from my dreams the next morning and i did wake up on the kitchen floor (with my blanket and pillow thanks to kim). the night was definately worth the psychadelic car trip to beaver dam the next day (yes, beaver dam). then i spent saturday and sunday preparing for and singing at kim's church in her home town. so many old people, so many nice people. it was nice and i love to sing and it was nice to have a little down time for my liver. we arrived back today and i took a ridiculously long nap, but it was a great nap.

such is my life during the summer, now i must consider watching ghost dog: way of the samurai again. i am in a film class and this film is the mandatory subject of our final paper. i'm not sure how i feel about it, but i must analyze some element of style by thursday. wish me luck.
