bla bla bla

conversation at front desk at work around buying bootleg movies from a barbershop:

"bla bla bla adult movies bla bla bla"

my ears perk up.

"adult movies?"

"i don't need any adult movies, i got my own moves and i know what i'm doing."

this from heavy, older liberian woman. smacks lips.

chocolate cake

there is this really ugly painting of the ocean outside my office. the waves are green and crashing up against some rocks that are huge globs of paint on the canvas. it looks like i could pull the paint off. i sit and gaze off at it, mildly stressed, find myself starting to clench my jaw a bit. i'm reminded of this time i made a model of a native american village for a minnesota history project in sixth grade. it was paper mache and i painted the hills brown, it looked like a giant chocolate cake with a few little teepees scattered in the valley.

projectile style

i got drunk at the red dragon this weekend for alissa's birthday party. the night was true red dragon, asshole bouncer, friendly waitress and bitchy people at the other tables. at least nobody vomited on us like last time (projectile style). alissa pulls together a great crowd of people. then paul and i road our bikes fast around lake of the isles, going the wrong way on the bumpy path. we found a moonlit spot to make out at until i complained because i had banged up my knee so we had to go home. damn, i always have to go and ruin the romance.
