Santa Monica with gemma

Yesterday gemma and I went to Santa Monica. It took us a while to get there, especially since we got a little lost. I hadn’t seen it her since Monday (it was Friday), which doesn’t sound so long but felt sadljfnso;fnwefoljndefwOMGz long. We went to Pacific Park, the little amusement park thing, but we didn’t go on any rides. We walked around for a while before renting a couple bikes. gem didn’t like them as much as the others we’ve rented because they were multispeed, but it was a lot of fun. She slammed on her brakes once which caused me to slam on my brakes… but no crashes!
After returning the bikes, we hung out at Pacific Park some more. It seems like we’re always pointing out photobooths but never get around to taking any. Well, she was looking for the kind that give you the photos in the strip, and we found a booth this time. The first photo was taken without gemma noticing, and the second had me all bug-eyed and ugly (yes Christine, uglier than usual). The last two were good though!
Then it was time for air hockey. She kicked my ass twice in a row. She’s good! And… I’m not so good. However, she accidently threw (let go? released? I’m not actually sure what happened) her paddle, and it hit a guy. The guy was two tables away from us. Everybody was laughing except me because I was confused and didn’t know what was going on. Good times though!
And then we went home.
PS. gem listens to KROQ a lot but doesn’t like the flashback at noon thing. I liked it most of all, lol. They played Oingo Boingo! That’s good stuff.
Anyways, I love spending time with her.

[07/27/2005-21:43:35] William: There’s nothing wrong with liking men
[07/27/2005-21:44:00] William: In fact, on the Whoosh RO server, we are very accepting of your kind
[07/27/2005-21:44:02] William: You know… the gays
[07/27/2005-21:44:14] William: In fact, I’m pretty sure same sex marriages are possible
[07/27/2005-21:44:24] William: So come on down to Whoosh
[07/27/2005-21:44:26] William: RO
[07/27/2005-21:44:42] William: Where you don’t need to hide in your dirty yet gaymazingly clean closet

gemma and then less important people

I went out with gem today! We had brunch at a Hawaiian restaurant before returning a Blockbuster game. Then, we went to Cherry park. I had a great time, and we didn’t really do anything. I love being able to have a great time doing nothing. We just lied around. gem worked on her journals for her yoga class for a few minutes, but after that, there was just lying around. We fooled around, playing a game where she pokes me and I guess how many fingers she was using. Yup, lol. We both napped for a while. It was nice just to sleep near her. I had some weird dreams too.
After waking up, we went to Albertsons just to avoid the heat. I noticed an ATM so I got some money and bought groceries. Then we brought them home and sat in the car eating Pirate’s Booty and blueberries. Right around the time she was planning to leave, Chris drove up. After we all talked for a few minutes, gem left, and I went to hang out with Chris, Alyson, and Melissa. We got Herbert and went to the pool hall. Then we went to the mall where Alyson’s friend Mike, who turned out to also be Herbert’s friend, met us. We watched Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which was pretty entertaining. And then we went home!

Venus on the Half-Shell

I just finished reading Venus on the Half-Shell. It was great fun to read. I’m reminded of stories by Douglas Adams although this lacked as much depth in its plot. The book has a lot of sex in it, and was once considered pornographic, but it wasn’t really erotic. There’s just sexual humor thrown in. Check it out if you liked the Hitchhiker trilogy.

Final Fantasy II US

Yay, I just finished Final Fantasy II (the US version of Japanese 4). Although it was a bit predictable due to being old (probably original in its time), it was still really enjoyable. Now for sleep!
