|01:42 am - Ah yes.|
A few things:
A while back my friend Scott asked me to go to a comic book convention with him. I thought about it and decided that it would be a good life experience. I used to collect comic books and it surprises me that I've never attended. It's a good way to see a bunch of dorks in one place too.
Scott had to get there super early of course, making me get up at 6:00am and leaving at 7:00am, only to get there at 8:30-something, and having him inform me that we would be standing outside until 10:00am. I brought a book, so it was all good. After paying and getting a bag full of free shit, we ended up in another line behind these two guys. They had to be in their late 30's, early 40's. I overheard them talking about many things, such as movies, a Van Halen concert and whatnot, but it was this particular conversation I found amusing:
Guy 1: So... Are you still biking around most places?
Guy 2: Yep... Still biking.
Guy 1: Cool... Is your mom good about letting you use her car?
Guy 2: Oh yeah, normally when I need it she'll let me use it.
Yeah, I laughed at that. Perhaps I shouldn't have made the comic/geek connection that he doesn't have a car and is living at home in order to fund his comic and toy collection, I don't know. Maybe he really just can't afford a car or something. Still funny, though.
I was scheduled to play a jazz combo-like gig yesterday, which would have been fun. It was also going to pay 50 dollars. I figured since I'm kind of ahead in money with everything I've been doing this fall, I'd purchase Donkey Konga (Nintendo game that comes with a set of bongos and you play along with songs) as a little gift to myself. It got canceled, so I guess that will have to wait. Speaking of Donkey Konga...
Last month after helping Jeffro move into his new apartment, we stopped by Circuit City. I was excited to see that they had a playable version of Donkey Konga. I of course had to try it out. I don't know what song I played, but I was enjoying myself. After a while, there was a group of kids and their parents watching me play. I kept playing; hell, it was my turn. When I was done, I walked away and a little girl started playing. I then realized I wanted to know how much it was going to cost, as I thought it was already out, so I went to check the price. It wasn't out, but I got to see the little girl "playing" Donkey Konga. Man, she sucked. I totally kicked her ass at Donkey Konga.
I really need a new car. Mine is a piece of shit. My mom was going to sell me hers as soon as I could afford to make decent payments on it, which I can't. So what I'm trying to do now is try to get someone to crash into me. You know, an accident that isn't my fault. There has to be some money I could get out of that.
So there, I updated. Maybe one of these times I'll write about my antics in Speech class and the other things I've been doing this fall.
