music: big star
no jon brion tonight. instead I sit at home with strep throat and a sinus infection, watching charlie chaplin movies and the last of the dead like me from series one.
it feels like razor blades in my throat everytime i try and swallow. I went to the doctors and she gave me these horse pills. I'm feeling a little better then yesterday but not as good as I will feel tomorrow.
I saw Jon Brion last week and he had his infamous sinus infection. He always seems to rock harder when he's on sudefed! He did a great version of 'Beast of Burden' by the Stones then someone yelled out "hey, what was the first concert you've ever been to" then Jon told us this story about going to see Cheap Trick in New Hampshire with his friends... getting high to fit in but passed out before they went on. I love it when Jon tell's us stories. That led into a great version of 'Surrender' by Cheap Trick complete with the cool intro and everything.
I went to see Sin City the other night with some friends. We all enjoyed it very much. My one friend is a short film maker and I could tell he was loving everything about it. It was pretty amazing, the way it was black and white and the blood was white. the womens clothes were colored and so were the eyes and lipstick. It was full of famous people. This is not a film for kids, it has a lot of nudity, language, violence and drugs. It's kind of funny and gross at the same time.
I was at the gym this past wednesday feeling great after a 2 hour workout then i walk outside and it hit's me. i'm sick! the only thing that i can think of is that i must have caught something from one of the barbells. great, now i'm going to have to look like an idiot and wear gloves the next time i go.
i found a personal trainer for free. this guy is always waving hello to me as i'm running on the tredmill and he was always offering to help me workout. so finally i said what the hell and let him. he showed me how to use all of these arm machines/barbells. that was so nice of him. i told him that i appreciate it but i didn't want to waste his time. he insisted that he already did his workout and that he would help me whenever he is there. cool! ...
........ ok, yeah so he did ask if i wanted to go to dinner or a movie with him sometime.
why is it that i get spanish guys trying to pick up on me all the time?? have i said this before? i've also noticed that most of my friends are of the spanish or there abouts race. i may just go grab some food with the guy sometime, i mean what can that hurt? he's super nice but i'm not attracted to him. just lately, i've been feeling ....bold and i have that 'what the hell' attitude.
