Okay Now...

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to update, life has been a bit hectic but oh so very fun. Last night was my roommate Iliana's 21'st birthday and we tore up the town as was and thankfully still is age-appropriate.

While the dancing was fun and the liquor was good, I have to say my favorite part of the night, as are most of my favorite parts of night-outs, was the parts where we were simply wandering the midnight streets laughing too loudly and offending the local architecture.

This is one of my favorite little places in downtown Eugene - a statue memorializing Ken Kesey there is another wonderful one of Rosa Parks at the bus station.

We started our night in a Sushi bar, club hopped until roughly 2am - my ankles are actually bruised from dancing - then ended the night at Rennie's, the bar that is right across from our bus stop. As opposed to the one that is actually in our parking lot... Rennie's is much, much nicer, and they have specialty shot called Duck Farts.

I voted today in the internal elections, yes on measures 66 and 67 that will raise the income taxes of families making more than 250,000 to 11% as well as raising the minimum tax on corporations. I was intending to join some people I met last week in going door to door with fliers, today.... but I find myself somewhat unable to tear myself away from my bed's convenient proximity to the bathroom.

I am meeting a UO counselor tomorrow afternoon, so that will be interesting.

My roommate Danika (the adorable little redhead to my right) has been causing me immeasurable pain lately, a pain that I will now share with you. Prepare to cringe, these are all real.

Myself: It's easy to forgive Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde, Mel Gibson is not on the same level, remotely.
Danika: But you said you liked the Lethal Weapon movies!
Myself: Yeah, but it's no "The Importance Of Being Earnest"!
Danika: Well he's not Shakespeare, y'know!

Danika: Thank yo'!
Myself: Thank yo'! ...I told you you'd like the Marx Bros!
Danika: Yes, Marko and Harpy were my favorites!

Danika: What are you doing?
Myself: Watching Stephen Colbert
Danika: The prime minister of France?

Danika: I've always wanted to play Jazz clarinet..!
Myself: Well you should probably start by listening to some Jazz music.
Danika: Yeah, who was that guy you were talking about? Charlie Coltrane?

I leave you with a wonderful insight into stupidity. I am going to go attempt to consume something now... hopefully it will remain inside of me for the appropriate time frame.

EDIT: Okay, for some reason the pictures I've posted here are disturbingly and inefficiently large, so in order to see them you'll have to click on them.

EDIT2: Iliana and I got tickets to Gabriel Iglesias!!!!!!!!

  1. Your friend must have been kidding or is she really the queen of the philistines?
    Colbert has a great political future...
    BTW, Danny's friend the film maker speculated what would happen if someone from Stratford came to Hollywood and tried to sell a story about a prince returning from university to find his uncle married to his mother and his dad's ghost complaining etc. I expect he would be booted out on his butt.
