a suitable ending to the evening i walked out of delihaus (home to the cutest waitresses in boston), grabbed myself a copy of the weekly dig alternative free paper in order to read to the rest of the gang why relationships are like zelda (because you get through the first three levels like butter but then you have to try harder and harder to get through to zelda because the rest of the game is hard so you keep on shutting off the machine and starting over through levels one through three because they're familiar and easy to get through) and exited onto the street where we were greeted by three very large asses swathed in pleather and as we passed by i could only utter "ew." because it was such a hideous sight at which point we all bust out laughing because, well, everyone else was thinking "ew" because there's really nothing else you can think when confronted by big faux leather butts after eating greasy deli food, especially when we were all these young hipsters with our body piercings and we had just come from some techno dance ojamoj action.

so we're all carrying on like japanese schoolgirls when we pass by two couples, both nicely dressed (in that "khakis and a blazer" and some cheap "make me look like a well dressed whore" dress kind of way) couples, both inebriated to the gills. the as the second couple approaches, the woman, whom i will call audrey for no other reason than i want to give a name to this person i'm about to mock, starts adjusting her sequined dress. now audrey is stumbling down the sidewalk while bruce, her boyfriend, tries to help her with her dress at which point she is having so many issues that she gathers up most of her garment in her hands between her legs and is holding them there like some cracked out bloomers, stumbling down the street looking at herself as if to say "my god, how did i get here? and where did this shiny thing come from?"

ok, so you had to have been there.

but i was, which is what makes this whole thing so great.

oh, the soundrack to this whole evening is blue man group audio, which i just picked up today and which is totally great and reminds me why i stood up and gave the strongest standing ovation i've ever given at any performance that time i went to see them in new york.

this whole day began with the sun beating down on my head, as it often does since i've been too cheap and/or lazy (and how do i expect to move back to new york?) to put up curtains or blinds, and my arm was stiff from sleeping on it and my sternum hut. a meeting with a web design client, and then on to fun with friend from college channing. channing is lots of fun because we went to go clothes shopping (uninspired vintage stuff today, but oh well) and looked into some art galleries including the home of the now defunct radio free cambridge where the commentary du jour happening in the lobby of the gallery was discussing the stock market and how when the stock market does something then there are people somewhere who lose money or their jobs etc etc and how the whole thing is run by a couple of men (probably wearing suits) and controlling the economy and they're appointed by "... the president, who's a punk" and when we left the gallery we just thought "i really don't think clinton would make a good punk as he's a bit too pudgy for that" and then i made the faux pas by getting punk and skinhead confused, but i think i was forgiven for that.

punks don't say "oi," only skinheads do. i think "tommy" screwed that one up for me.

coffee, used cds (home, prior to my purchase, of the blue man group cd and a pizzicatto 5 album since i remember bryan buying some of those a while back), screwdrivers from the hardware store and the new issue of wallpaper* (and vogue for channing, boy i love that kid) and then off to MIT, geek capital of the east coast, for some techno dancy party loving.

dance dance dance and even though i can't dance i kicked my feet up and got made fun of by mouser but it's okay beause he can't dance either, and basically had a fun ole time. i sat on the sidelines when i got tired and thought about the act of thinking about how to approach one of the handfull of cute girls on the floor, realizing in that time that i was not really concerned with approaching any of those girls and thinking instead of how i could get all the grease and dancing ick off of my body since i'm a big neat freak.

but me, mr. "i really want a girl," was so happy just being in the dancing happy bouncy moment of the party that the fact that there were more girls around than i'd been used to given that i work with two boys all day long and that's all i see day in and day out (which is a source of all the soreness in my life having to do with my job) did not seem to adversely affect me at all. i was happy having some boobs bouncing around to watch because i'm just a pig, and some pretty faces and that girl with the tanktop and the little bob haircut(ooooooh) and that other girl with the black tanktop and the black skirt and the one with the cute little sweater thing and the carpenter pants and i didn't say i didn't notice them just that it wasn't a source of agony for me.

channing actually mentioned to me about four times that i looked happy.

wow.

there should be something said here about turning over a new leaf, but i don't know. boston still has sucky transportation and things like that. but maybe it's not as sucky as i thought.

maybe.
