I’m thinking about leaving Winamp and switching to iTunes. Also considering replacing my Rio Karma with an iPod.

BRIEF SURVEY: What program do you use to play music, and what MP3 player do you own? Why did you choose these?

Yeah, great everyone, I’m glad you got an extra hour of sleep last night. Too bad it fucking gets dark at 5pm. This sucks.

Saw the New Amsterdams on Saturday night. Such a good show. Check them out on this tour if you get a chance.

Parties tomorrow? I’m working til 9 and need something to do. plz advise

Yesterday I bought a car. It’s a 1991 Buick Regal. Pretty much the same one I drive now, only newer and fewer miles. Or so we thought. The odometer says 96,000 miles. Fine. The title from the previous owner, dated August 2003, says 106,000. This is easy enough to attribute to a lazy car dealer who took a customer estimate rather than going out to check the actual mileage. So whatever, I was hyped. I let my dad drive it to work today so he could have the guys in his shop check it out and get professional opinions.

So he calls me this morning and says he found old papers in the glovebox, like from ’99, that says the car had 103,000 miles on it. That was 5 years ago. So someone fucking rolled back the odometer. Adam and Rene both warned me against buying cars from Pudgy’s, but I did anyhow, and got screwed. Oh yeah, there’s a giant hole in the gas tank, and I put almost $40 in there yesterday. WHAT A JOKE. I’m returning the car today.

Here are some pictures. The first one is for Annie and Tracy. Everything else is just from the summer and later that I just felt like scanning.

Another COMPLAINING ABOUT COLLEGE post. I HATE COLLEGE. I don’t think I’m doing this again next year. There is only 1 class that I like, and I’m not even learning anything.. I just like it.

Right now I’m supposed to be writing some “letter to the editor” for my english class, but I don’t want to do it because there is NO POINT. I’m not learning anything by doing it. FUCK what is this, high school?

Oh yeah, I’m the Business Manager for the school paper.. I have to organize all this advertising stuff, and invoice people, and do budgeting, and I’m really backed up and I’m afraid people are going to hate me.

I just want to sit here and listen to gangsta rap. And spoon with someone.

Death Cab last night was awesome. They seriously played every song I ever wanted them to play, including Photobooth and I Was A Kaliedoscope, which made me think of Rachel because 3 years ago before we really knew each other, she told me to download that song and then we hung out and listened to it and it was the first time we hung out. I love Rachel. Went with Rene, Eric L, and his girlfriend. Met up with Tiel between sets. It was a good time.

SO GOOD, in fact, that Crystalyn and I are attending Death Cab’s performance in Providence this weekend. I’m excited because, though I don’t miss Death Cab, I dearly miss Crystalyn and can’t wait for Saturday.

I skipped my English class on Friday because it’s pointless and we just watch movies that don’t relate to anything. I want to LEARN. This isn’t high school, where I was HAPPY if we watched The Sandlot every week for no reason. I’m taking an English Comp class so I can learn how to write, but nothing has happened so far.

Sakura Tokyo for lunch with Sean, ice skating with fun kids, then Friday’s. The town was mostly flooded Saturday, some cars and houses underwater, my neighbor’s basement was flooded about 4′ and there were firetrucks everywhere and there was no way into town. Luckily, FEMA wasn’t involved in the cleanup in any way. And it finally stopped raining after an entire week, and the sun came out, and when I saw it I wanted to call Crystalyn to tell her but my phone wouldn’t work.

Sean got me on the guest list for the Reggie/Alkaline Trio/My Chemical Romance show, and NOBODY could come with me, so I took my little brother Ryan. He had a blast, and it made me feel like a good big brother, for once. I WISH I HAD A BIG BROTHER THAT WOULD DO FUN STUFF WITH ME. Met up with TonyJ, he was quite the entertainer. It was so weird seeing Reggie open for My Chem and having kids around me be like “who the fuck is this band,” when 3 years ago it was the exact opposite. I’M NOT INFERRING ANYTHING ABOUT THE SCENE, I’m just saying it’s strange to .. NEVERMIND.

Oh yeah, I HATE IT when a band says WOW I LOVE COMING TO (city name), THIS IS THE BEST FUCKING SHOW ALL TOUR, because SHUT UP we know you’re just saying that.

I also have a terrible habit of putting myself in situations where I know I will probably get hurt, and not being able to stop myself.

I feel like it is entirely selfish of me to want a girlfriend, because I know I will be a less-than-ideal boyfriend because I’m always working or at school. I’m sorry.

Rene bought our tickets for The Decemberists this weekend, and Death Cab after that. So hyped.

I just spent $250 fixing the exhaust on my car, which is really not even mine, it’s my dad’s. I still need a new car. Crap. I’m falling asleep as I write this. Tonight I hung out with Hannah and Sarah Gill Who Always Gets Mentioned With Her Last Name. We went to McDonalds. Last night I hung out with my babci and we went to Tatnuck and visited Rachel and then had dinner and made fun of each other like we do.

I’m pretty sure tomorrow at catholic churches, there is an anti-gay marriage petition being passed around. Please don’t sign it, if you happen to come across one.

Holy shit. I fell asleep writing this. I’m leaving it here for historical posterity. Time to get ready for work.
