Amazing what a good night's sleep will do

It's a schpadoinkle kinda day.

I was soooooooooooo mad last night. I should have gone straight to the mechanic as soon as my brakes started grinding, but I wasn't thinking clearly and instead just called and cancelled my haircut appointment and drove straight home, where I snapped at adventdragon, had something to eat, and dove into CoH for a while. I took a break to finally watch Cannibal! The Musical that paranoyd had loaned me ages ago. It had its funny moments, and was very Parker/Stone, and although I'm not going to rush out and buy a copy it was fun to watch. I jumped back on CoH and ended up doing the Moonfire task force for 5 hours, but it was a great team so I had fun.

Being up so late I knew I wasn't going to get up early to get my car to the mechanic (which just made me mad at myself again for not doing so right from work), so I accepted that I likely wouldn't have my car again until Monday. Q called to wake me up around noon and we had a good conversation (gads I miss him), then I got up, made breakfast, strapped my bike to the rear bumper, and dropped my car off at the mechanic. Well good news for me - they're open on Sundays, which means I should have it back tomorrow. Yippee. Plus he was ready to take me as soon as I got there thinking they just needed to figure out what they did wrong, but then I told him I needed my brakes looked at, too. He said he hopes it's just dirt - at least he's optimistic. And on top of that I had some exercise riding my bike home, and it was a nice day so I enjoyed it.

So I spent the rest of the day CoHing, interrupted pleasantly by a San Diego Dopefest! :) For some reason I thought it started at 8:00, not 6:00, but we discovered my mistake and still managed to make it before anyone had even ordered drinks. In attendance were scout1222, cczernia, jkusters, thomasm, tdilliga, me and encinitas, who we really have to convince to get an LJ one of these days. Much fun and gossip and catching up was had, and of course we had to take a picture. Evidently I'm organizing the next one. :)

So that's that. I'm home, back playing CoH, trying not to think about how much my car is going to cost, but at least I get another bit of exercise tomorrow, and I'll have my car to get to work on Monday.

My heart's as full as a baked potato. Let's build a snowman!

Too bad you missed the Pennsic several years ago, just before which most of Three Skulls had just seen Cannibal, thanks to your old friend Fiona the Volitile. It was the very sphadoinkle war. The references and songs were flying back and forth the entire time.

It must have been MANY years ago, as this will be my 16th (17th?) consecutive Pennsic.

Hang the bastard!

I think it was Pennsic 28 or 29, and by miss it, I mean not having seen Cannibal before having been there.

Ah, I see.

A dope fest isn't what I think it is, is it?
Jun. 19th, 2005 09:55 pm (UTC)
Yes, yes it is. We sat in the middle of a Mexican restaurant and smoked pot until we all passed out. We had tequila, too. I don't remember anything after the third shot.

Well, I don't think cities should be encouraging dangerous and criminal activity with ‘dope fests’... so, I'm just going to perch my glasses at the end of my nose and stare at you in a way that conveys my disappointment, young man.

I don't think it counts as gullible if I don't get a cultural reference - if you say you're taking drugs at a dope fest, what am I supposed to think...

Did you actually believe that 6 people were sitting around in a restaurant getting high in the United States of The War On Drugs?
Jun. 20th, 2005 09:13 am (UTC)
Yes - given the mad crime rates in the US, the fact the phoney war on drugs has never worked, and that the only times in my life I've been presented with drugs or the opportunity to buy them have been in the US - I don't think it's that far-fetched to assume there's a drug culture there.

You have soooooooooo much to learn if you're going to move here. We're not Amsterdam!
Jun. 20th, 2005 05:51 pm (UTC)
You've never been to Amsterdam, have you...

Jun. 20th, 2005 06:18 pm (UTC)
Yeah - that figures...
Jun. 20th, 2005 07:33 pm (UTC)
I am amused that you take that tone with me when you thought six people were actually openly smoking pot in a public restaurant in San Diego. :D
Jun. 20th, 2005 07:39 pm (UTC)
Well, let's review - you said you were at a dope fest, smoking dope... How was I supposed to know you were lying to me? I assume you're being truthful when you post...
That said - the Amsterdam ref did sound exactly like someone for whom Europe is more of an 'over there' concept than a continent.
Jun. 20th, 2005 07:51 pm (UTC)
Hee hee! You're so cute when you're flustered. :)
Jun. 20th, 2005 07:53 pm (UTC)
Either way, sorry, I'm snapping at you - I've had a hell of a week, and I know that's no excuse - so I'll just apologise and shut up.
Jun. 20th, 2005 08:11 pm (UTC)
It must be a bad week when you of all people are missing sarcasm and humor. :)
Jun. 20th, 2005 08:13 pm (UTC)
Check out my LJ - bad doesn't begin to describe it...
