Even more vacation
sighToday was pretty boring. My mom had her philosophy conference, which is the real reason we are in CA. Well, MY main reason to be here is to support teh extended family, whom I very rarely get to see. But she came because KSU covers the cost. So today Tim and I were at the mercy of what my grandma wanted to do. We went to go see the movie "Ladykillers" which started off very good, but i didn't like the way it ended. Played cards with her for a few hours afterwards, until dinner. My grandma is really the only person I will play cards with. Then teh mom came back with some of her friends and promptly started to tell embarrassing stories about us... Yeah so just sat there politely until they left. If i'm lucky I'll never see them again, so it's okay.
Never got around to warwalking last night, I was too tired. Fell asleep listening to the ipod. I guess it was playing relaxing music , but all of a sudden it started playing something where someone was screaming. Of course, I thought it was real and woke up yelling in a cold sweat wondering what the fuck was going on. Damn subliminal messages. Today was a nice day, I guess. As the expression goes here "The mountains were out today". What it means is that the air was clear enough to see the mountains. I highly recommend seeing the movie "Seabiscuit", which was filmed in Arcadia. You'll see the mountains I'm talking about.
So tomorrow is Knott's Berry Farm Day. I want to go on some roller coasters, but more than anything, I need to get some DDR in. I hope it's a DDR Extreme machine so I can play Speed over Beethoven. Such an awesome song. I also have to interview my grandma about WW2 and vietnam for history class. I'm already reading this horrible book about the civil rights movement. Now I'm all about freedom and equal rights, but the book is so boring that it's put me out cold in sleep 3 times already. I can't be expected to write a paper about it. Oh well, another semester, another miracle to get through it.
The problem with warwalking in California is that I'm still sleeping according to eastern time. When it's 10pm here, I feel like it's 1am. And If I wait for everyone in the neighborhood to sleep around midnight, I have to leave when it feels like 3am to me. And then I spend about 2 hours online, so now I feel like it is 5am. This is the last time I will be online before coming back to Ohio. The plane leaves Cali around 6:30am local time, so I will have to get some sleep. Or I could read that damn book.
See you real soon kids!
