one hell of a weekend

one hell of a weekend

What a week.. Monday through Friday I was going to the bathroom at least five times every day. It would all stop around 4pm though and not bother me during the night. I thought in the beginning that it was caused by having the dish with hot chilies at the Mexican restaurant on Sunday. By Friday I knew I had to do something. I downed a 4 oz. ($5!!) bottle of Pepto Bismol and headed to Amy’s house for dinner….

On Sunday Amy and I took John and Katie from the airport to Wilshire Boulevard. We took Wilshire all the way down through Westwood and Rodeo Drive and the rich people’s houses. Then we went briefly through Korea town before passing by Echo Lake and driving past where I work. After that we went through downtown to the other side and parked in “little Mexico.” The place was a few blocks of town made up to look and feel like…

On Monday I brought my car to the Glendale dealership to have a check engine light looked at. It turned out to be nothing important. I had to leave it there for a day and get a rental car. I ended up with a Buick Regal Custom (brand new). Yikes… I can’t imagine why anyone would actually buy one of those. I felt really unsafe driving home on the freeway, and the car only had 7,000 miles on it. On…

On Friday I took Amy to Hollywood Park. My employer had reserved boxes in the “players club.” Hollywood Park is in Inglewood. It took us an hour and a half to get there, and the traffic wasn’t half as bad as last Friday. We stayed for two races and then left. Not very many people from work showed up, mostly just the people that I know on a first name basis. Everyone wanted us to bet, but we didn’t. It…

I think I had dinner at Byron’s house with this dude…

I received a forwarded email from Byron today that he received from one of his OU buddies. I think this is his former roommate Mark, which I’ve met a few times, but it could be some other Mark I’ve never met…not sure. I don’t agree with everything in here, but damn well most of it. This is how a lot of “liberals” feel. Everyone I know that considers themself a republican (or maybe just siding with Bush) should read this…

Through all this election hoopla I completely forgot to detail my trip to the swinging state of Ohio. Friday after work I rushed home and then rushed to the gym to get a quick workout. I thought if I worked out, it would help me sleep on the plane. Bad idea. It took me an hour and a half to drive 20 miles on the 405 freeway. When I got to the airport I couldn’t find Parking Lot B (the…

I’m not sure how to feel this morning other than bad. The prospect of four more years of Bush makes me physically ill. I wish I could be more like my loser peers and bask in apathetic ignorance. I have yet to hear a single person give an ethical reason to vote for Bush. Some vote because of their pocketbook, they like tax cuts. That equals greed. Others vote because they feel they will be “safer.” That equals ignorance, how…
