I had a dream that a powerful ball of string from a school on some other planet/world/dimension got under a bed where I was staying. A team of people showed up trying to get to it, but without letting on what they wanted. Somehow, I had found out what they were seeking. Eventually, someone(s) made the decision to retrieve it, and the principal ran to get it. I got in the way to block him. I was trying to shove him back, and he was trying to get past me. We locked eyes, and then the world around us started flashing before we entered the “battle screen.” It was so amazing. But then I woke up.
I don’t care if Monday’s blue. Tuesday’s gray, and Wednesday too. Thursday, I don’t care about you; it’s Friday, I’m in love.

I went to Gem’s today to play Cranium with her, Jackie and Edward. I was kind of nervous to talk to her dad again, but he seemed nice. It’s been a while since I’ve seen Jackie or Edward. Cranium is an amazingly fun game. Gemma and Jackie were on team with Edward and I on the other. We were horrible at having to hum songs, the sports questions, the movie questions… um yeah, we sucked a lot XD. But it was a lot of fun, and the charades-esque questions were very cool. I can’t believe Edward got some of the stuff that I did. And apparently when humming a song, trying to have your teammate guess it, trying to spell out the name of the song with hums (3 hums equals a C, etc.) is cheating. Yeah. Edward and I thought we just had a great strategy. Anyways… 25 hours and 45 minutes left in this year. Wow. Oh, and I got Fluffy Butt’s hat from Gem! ^_^

Dinner with Gem

Tuesday I went out with Gem to see Meet the Fockers, but the theater was closed due to water damages. We went to Tilly’s, and then to Best Buy. She bought a gift for someone, and I picked up what I wanted to get for a friend of mine. Gemma had a surprise for me that she was worried the rain would hinder. It was still raining lightly, but she decided to go ahead with it. We went up to Palos Verdes and had a dinner that she prepared for us. She brought sandwiches, spaghetti, cookies, pepsi, and apple cider. We ate on a hill overlooking the city on a blanket. It was raining lightly but not too much. Everything was very beautiful, and the view was great! It was such a nice evening with such a wonderful person. I’m so glad I got to spend the evening with Gemma… it was great, and I really love her =D

Gable House Bowl, La Capilla, Roda’s

I went bowling with some people today. I think I would have broken my record game, but a little kid in the next lane threw his ball into my lane when it was my turn on a crucial frame. It was a gutter ball. =/

After we bowled, Sam left, and the rest of us went to La Capilla. We had to wait about an hour for a table… seemed like forever. I finished Everything and a Kite during dinner. Then we went to Roda’s house, where she and Achala were watching Napolean Dynamite. It was good to see both of them. It had been a long time since I’d seen Achala, so that was cool. It hadn’t been that long since I’d seen Roda, but from UCI, I was used to seeing her often. I had a great time.

Everything and a Kite

Everything and a Kite by Ray Romano is a very funny book. I wasn’t sure if it was going to be any good, but I couldn’t pass it up for $1.50 at a thrift store. It was worth it. Granted, I don’t think it’s worth the $22 it’s priced as new, but it’s still very funny. Here’s a little excerpt:
You ever this memory loss? You’re in the shower, you’re daydreaming, and you can’t remember if you shampooed your hair?
Oh, that scared the hell out of me. You have to backtrack in your own shower.
“Hmmm, let me see… my hair feels squeaky…”
You know what I do now? I just bring a checklist right into the shower. Then I check each thing off after it’s done.
Turn on cold water
Turn on hot water
Burn, but a little less
Sing “Piano Man”
Check for ticks
That’s pretty much it.
Well, not everything. There is something that isn’t on the list that I occasionally do in the shower, but I’d really rather not discuss it.
I think the men know what I’m talking about.
Thaaaaaaaaaaat’s right.
It’s nothing to be ashamed of. It’s healthy. God gave us a gift, and look, sometimes in the shower we use it.
What’s funny is that sometimes we have no intention of doing that at all, and you even tell yourself that as you’re going in.
“Look, I’m late. I’m just gonna wash it and be on my way.”
Then you get in there, and the next thing you know, you’re trying to seduce yourself.
“Relax. I know we’re late. I just wanna hold it, that’s all.”


On Christmas Eve morning, I went out for sashimi, sushi, and tempura with my mom and grandpa. It was very tasty! I wish I could eat that more often. Then we went back to my aunt’s to spend the day with the family. Haley and Mitchel, my cousins, are so cute. Haley going to break a lot of hearts someday. I spent most of the day reading Digital Fortress. I read a couple pages before going to my aunt’s, but I basically started it that day. My stepdad got a 20 questions game, and the thing’s amazing. I don’t know how it’s able to guess correctly. I got cool stuff too. I received some DVD movies (copies), blank DVDs, a glass paperweight (my grandfather makes them… actually quite awesome, I’ll take a photo or something), a wallet and keychain from friends of my grandparents, a travel case for suits/clothes, a bag from a casino, cookies, a PS2 memory card, Red Zone deodorant, body spray, and body wash, a Starbucks gift card, five nice shirts, a denim jacket, a body pillow, and Domain cologne and aftershave. I got money too of course. The movies had a good selection, the paperweight is amazing (my grandfather is really talented, I think), the body pillow is amazing… yeah I’m happy with everything I guess. Man, that body pillow is awesome. I spent Christmas Eve night with my mom.
On Christmas, the family came to my mom’s house. I spent most of the time alone in an extra bedroom reading Digital Fortress. I finished it, and it’s really good. I had fun seeing my family. My great-grandmother bought me a lotto ticket… but I lost =/. My dad drove me to Gem’s where we exchanged gifts. I’m glad I got to see her; I miss her so much, and she gives the best hugs =D. She gave me a super cute Build-A-Bear named Fluffy Butt. And I lovez him (and her)! He’s dressed like Woody from Toy Story. She liked my gifts as well. Overall, it was a great Christmas! Now, I’m off to watch a movie!
