Diary of a 1L
Tuesday, March 23, 2004
Tuesday so far (I think this will substantially be it):
- Quizno's for lunch. Why do they think those disturbing mouse-creature things from the WWW will sell their subs? The subs are good, though.
- Cold Stone Creamery for lunch dessert. There's one of those right near my apartment, so this was another far from adventurous choice. I think I had tried one of their competitors before and found it kind of disturbing because I felt like they sort of did too much to the ice cream...sort of handled it too much. But I got something good.
- "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind": very good. Funny, but even more moving. It depends on whether you're willing to follow along with the scifi-ish pretense. This movie made me feel about love like "Lost in Translation" made me feel about Japan: even though everyone in the movie seemed really miserable being there, it seemed wonderful to me and I really want to go. Oh, and before the movie I was there really early so I played pretty much all the video games they had except Tekken 4. I'm awful at those kind of games. Other than that, they had like five different shooting games with plastic fake guns. I'm terrible at those. I wonder if there's something about guns around here...there's also an "indoor shooting range" just down the street half a block from the motel.
- El...El something...wait, let's check the receipt in my pocket...did I put the receipt in my pocket? It was something like El Capitano. El Capastrano. El Calamari. The waitress told me that it was her first day. Usually, you don't want to tell people stuff like that. At first, I was like..."Great!"...then I was like, "Well, it's my first time here too." I think she liked me!
- Back at the motel now. My tasks for the evening are to try to study some, read some, and plan out tomorrow's activities.
By the way, I think me and Jessica need to start a support group of two for repressed creative people. Also by the way, my beard is getting to the length where it's really itchy, which is the stage just before it curls back on itself and gets really comfortable and fun for stroking intellectually.
