Gah. This city.
Fuckin' slays me.
necia:
Should you be (have been?) referring to either of my two most favoritest Cities, I know the feeling. I'm so fucking homesick tonight. Give both of them hugs and kisses and promises of my eventual return for me, k?

Fuckin' airplanes have woken me up every day for the past week.

They're doing construction and rerouted all the flights in to MSP to go directly above my house.

Interferes with wireless, the TV, but mostly my desire to sleep past 8am.

Makes me wonder about people who live near the airport.

Oasis broke up, and I'm kind of sad, because Phish got...

Yeah, I noticed that (that they rerouted airplane business). I noticed it because 1) I literally saw my mom's house last time I came in, which has never happened, and 2) the captain told us, upon landing, that they were doing construction at the airport and had rerouted airplane business, and that that's why we had somehow managed to land on the other side of an active runway from our gate, with about ten planes lined up between us and it. We managed to fix that rather quickly, but for at least a few minutes it was just, "So, if this turns into one of those epic 'stuck on tarmac for hours and hours' nightmares I've been hearing about, who might I punch first? A flight attendant, or dude sitting next to me with the earbud equivalent of those obnoxiously too-loud speakers rattling around in a car that can't really handle being that shaken by the sound and just ends up annoying the shit out of everyone?"

Unrelatedly, how's things?

I finally got a real job. No haircut though. Yet.

I dunno--answer the phone?!? I get phone calls; I don't know about those fools, but my phone rings. tongue
necia:
So, hey! When's that celebratory drink happening? I want to hear about the job--and I want to hit up someone with a bigger paycheck than mine for a beer. tongue

(I'm having such a hard time determining the proper location of "up" in that sentence. Does it stay with "hit," or can I put it after "mine"? Hmmm.)

I'm $200 poorer today than I should be. Actually just $155. But Necia's $45 poorer than she should be, and I was the one who parked illegaly. It's good she was there though, 'cos otherwise I might've ... I dinnae ... yelled at someone or something.

God Damn Saint Patrick's Day.

Meh. It was an adventure. I've always wanted to explore those sketchy, poorly-lit, warehousey-looking buildings on foot at 2:30 on a brisk March morning. tongue

I was in Florida last weekend, just long enough to come back to two feet fewer of snow on the ground than when I left.

Pretty real.

FLORida? What for?

more snow = more sledding
more sledding = happy moMNtum

It's been above freezing lately, so I've been outside, which is nice. We went sledding last night, to celebrate before the last of my buddies shipped off for Amsterdam for two weeks. Bastards.

I also met a pretty lady last night. We played Mario Kart 64 for, like, two hours.

Amsterdam? Who's going to Amsterdam?

I got drunk last night--had too much wine on too empty a stomach. I feel way gross tonight. Let's get drunk sometime when I'm not busy regretting getting drunk. tongue

I've spent almost as many weekends in Chicago as the Twin Cities so far this year. Good fuckin' town.

I also got down to Grinnell this weekend, to party with my old roommate Charlie and my one-time disc golf crew. They had a Bob Marley party and got everyone all drunk off Keg Beer, and all stoned of a huge bag of dank that...

The House on the Rock is kind of hilarious.

However, I've been about a bazillion times now, since every time I go to the Dells we end up going, and there's only so much miscellaneous kitschy shit you can see in one place, you know?

Funny. The House on the Rock. I'm certain you were the only visitors in weeks; that place dies in the winter.

I guess I've finally earned my stripes as a Minnesotan. Even our own (*coff* Necia *kiff*) are moaning about the cold.

Either I just don't see the point in complaining about the weather (What am I gonna do?), or it actually doesn't bother me that much.

Case in point: I had to have my mechanic tell me I needed a new thermostat...

So did you end up going to G-town this weekend?
necia:
Dude! They killed off Babe on All My Children! eeek




I'm not certain that that's compelling news to you, but you're the only one of the Grinnell soap-watchers I talk to--and really, the only one outside of my mom who'd even know what I'm talking about anyway.

But yeah! They totally killed her off! WTF?

I'm always willing to spread the Gospel of Mitch. I think you had to remind me a few times, though, that I actually introduced you to his stuff. He seemed like someone you and Charlie would have just inherently known about, somehow.

And yeah, I think everyone can say "told-ya-so" on that one. I remember a lot of drunk Pub conversations, the gist of which were exactly what you and lotones have said. Except drunker, and with more cigarette-drag punctuation.
