sexuh new macbook + shooting @ audubon park today + free Tulane wireless = might as well update ...Thursday
... arrived in New Orleans. we have bad ass rooms at the Ambassador Hotel. Pictures up whenever my little, old camera stops eating batteries. sneaked away to see bartender friend for about 10 minutes: boring and lifeless place. went back to hotel & then out to drunky-ness.Friday
... touring people around Nola. sneaked away to visit another bartender friend @ dinner. laughed at the closed-in life people lead in the French Quarter, was glad it's not me. went back to hotel & then out to bier-barz. ran into a guy i used to work with at a tattoo studio 7 years ago; looks exactly the same. odd.Saturday
... went to dentist to fix a chip in my tooth. apparently, i also had acute temporomandibular joint disorder in my jaw that didn't even hurt until the guy fixed it. wtf? ... but the best part is ... the 4 days worth of pain killers he gave me ... So, that day i went on a loopy shopping spree at the mall near his office, bought previously referred to MacBook and stuff, and felt ridiculously good all day. That night, however, i apparently thought the medicine label's warnings did not apply to very happy people in severely good moods and decided to drink anyway. genius? maybe. Fortunately, i don't remember much after screaming at a jukebox for not having any black metal.Sunday through Tuesday
... kind of blurry. mostly, i spent these days responding to the slew of ROTFL voicemails and txt messages. it appears i spent Saturday night on the phone with everyone in the world, including ex-boyfriends of girls i had just met, and the funniest calls -i'm told - were those featuring me talking about aliens, mothman, bigfoot, and bat boy (i had learned a few nights before that Weekly World News was stopping production) as if they were real - oh, the delirious ridiculosity we weave.
... the best part isn't so much the events i don't remember at all, but the next three days that i was still on pain meds, but after being LOLed at on the phone all day Sunday, I was trying so hard to not appear on pain meds, that I was just as dopey (remember kids, drugs might make you feel all in control and normal ... but to everyone else you are tomorrow's lolercaust) ... my favorite part is that we had a new photographer yesterday who wasn't with us in Tampa. He made us all turn off our cell phones because he has a hearing aid ... and I thought that would be the proper time to insult deaf people around a guy who can mechanically hear a bird shitting 100 yards away. luckily, no one liked him and he was only there for one day. bastard.
.. i talked to my friend Boston Mark on Tuesday. I thought the last time I had talked to him was the night before - I even remembered the conversation - but it was the prior Thursday when I had talked to him ... and that is pretty much how Saturday through Tuesday evening felt - vacant and vanished. As Boston Mark described pain med feelings: like I had a head full of air and was a spectator to life.today
After sleeping away the pain pills for over 15 hours, i awoke to an email saying my FAFSA correction had been processed. the fuk? It turns out that the idiot fat black bitch from Tulane's Financial Aid Dept. confused my file with someone else's and changed my info to say i make 28,000 a year ... which would explain why i didn't receive a refund this semester. douche! so, i am going to go get into a fight with her on my lunch break and if she gets things straightened out, I'll have another 2,000 dollars. sweet.
... I am excited about this evening. Now being un-doped I can go jogging. we haven't gone since we got to Nola. the people i work with said the sidewalks here were too crooked and they would get hurt ... i guess they didn't notice the million joggers pacing down the neutral ground ?!?!?!
so, i'm taking them to the Audubon track tonight, where I am looking forward to paining myself to the new Satyricon MP3s I just put on my iPod.
