I had an extra long weekend again. Govt employees got friday off and I figured since I had friday, that I may as well take thursday also. So wednesday Amanda and I went out and ran around all night ending up at Jackalope to watch Tia Carrera play. Good shit.
Thursday I took my car in to get the a/c looked at. Guess what? It'll cost $1300 to fix it. That's more than I paid for my last car! So, needless to say, I won't be getting the a/c fixed. While I might be able to afford it (I'd be broke as hell for awhile) I refuse to pay that much money for a car a/c. At least I got one summer of coolness out of it. What the hell, before last year I hadn't had an a/c since 1997 anyway but, goddamn, those Texas Summers are killer. That night Holly and went to Emo's
to catch Tim's band, the Cutaway
, then over to the Whisky Bar where we met up with Choo, Rand, Kevin etc... It was quite a nice evening. It ended with everyone coming over to our house after last call to finish what beer could be scrounged and listening to Reign in Blood
for some reason.
Then it rained on friday. What did I do friday night? I don't remember. Oh yeah, went to Lovejoy's
w/ Tom and Amanda. Early evening.
Saturday Joe and I went to see the Chronicles of Riddick
which I enjoyed to no end. There was no shortage of deadpan one-liners but, hey, it is Vin Diesel. What do you want? It was a great mix of David Lynch's Dune
and Conan the Barbarian (the comic, not the movie). That night I went to a couple of lame parties one of which ended with someone knocking my beer all over my chest. Thanks!
Sunday morning I picked up Amanda and we had "brunch" at Curra's then hit Waterloo
(didn't get anything) and Buffalo Exchange where I got a couple of overpriced "vintage" shirts and some nicely priced shoes.
That night (last night, I guess) after watching Detroit beat the Lakers (only LA could make me like Detroit) I went to Emo's to watch the Arm
play. Despite my snide link joke, they were pretty good. The great part was that in the other area of Emo's they were having some kinda break dancing competition which led to an inordinate amount of "You Got Served!" jokes (though just a moment ago I misspelled that so that it said "You Got Severed!" which I kinda like better).
