Tears form behind my eyes, but I do not cry

The evening was interesting.

Started by going to Zack's with Rob and Garvey. Then Dan and Julie showed up. Played a little Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and played with the cutest cats ever! Hippo and Potamus. Damn, they are adorable. We watched Death to Smoochy for an hour before saying "Dear God! It's only half over!!" The movie had practically resolved itself already, so we stopped watching to go to dinner.

We (the 5 of us sans Rob, who had to go home for dinner and Lizzie...the girlfriend) went to Baker's Square. It was entertaining and the main host who has worked there for as long as I can remember is nuts. He kept coming over to talk to us for no apparent reason. Crazy Paulie.

Then everyone went to Rob's where we watched that terrible Fox show (The Pitt's?) before sending 3 boys to get a movie. They came back with Jackass. *sigh* Boys. But wasn't that bad. I've seen worse. Like Bringing Down the House, for example.

We got kicked out at 11:45 and went to the 24-hour Dunkin Donuts in Highland Park. Mmm...double chocolate donut and hot cocoa. Perfect midnight snack, though I now feel really sick. It's bedtime, fo' sure.

So I'm off to sleep. Hopefully for a long time. I totally could have been out until well after noon today, but I was woken up at 11 by the sister. Grrr.

That reminds me. My bags of shoes and clothes from shopping today are in my trunk. Damn.

For a girl of my age, why am I so numb?

Slept until 11, which was nice, but very odd. I had first woken up at 9:30, and was having some strange dreams involving taking an entire party to my neighbor's house, despite the fact that she didn't know any of the people. There was also a lady who's parachute broke(?) and she fell a great distance and still lived to talk about it.

I don't know where they come from, I just think 'em.

Today is...well, boring because no one is awake yet. Silly spring break.

I've already eaten breakfast. Maybe I'll vege in front of the TV for a while.

I've been listening/wanting to listen to a lot of chick music lately. Bree Sharp, Stretch Princess, Vanessa Carlton and a little Michelle Branch. I should whip out my Alanis CDs too.

    Fool's Gold - Bree Sharp (in head)

Listen, late last night, I heard the screen door slam and a big yellow taxi took my girl away

Bored today.

Sucky day.

Trying to make it better. Will be hanging out with all boys again.

Probably going to Woodfield to visit the Apple Store, cause they are a bunch of geeks. (Yes, I am too...but I like to blame things on them...) Then hanging out at Patty's later.

My girls should come home. Amanda, Allie, and Candace are all gone. Zoe and Caitlin are busy tonight. It's so sad.

Save me from the nothing I've become

Ah yes. Sitting and eating pears out of a can.

And not those wussy lunch-sized cans with little diced pears...oh no! I've got a big can! With pear halves.

I love me some canned pears.

Tonight was actually good. It wasn't overly entertaining or anything. We mallratted ('s a verb. You wanna make something of it?) and hung around the Apple Store for about an hour, or so. I want a mac so badly. Maybe for college...but probably not the way things are going now. Blar.

Then we went back to Patty's house and played Halo. I sucked as usual, but I can tell that I'm getting better.

Now I'm home. And tired.

Sleep is of the good. Spring Break is of the good.
