No Help for the Bitter

(image stolen from Heather's Facebook,
sorry i have none of my own)


It was an interesting weekend. There isn't really a whole lot to document all of what went on, except a few bad cellphone camera images. A theme was kind of set around the fact that my friends Heather and Aaron got ENGAGED on Saturday. I did my part by setting up a small picnic for them with John, while their friend Ashley set up a dinner. Heather's friends and family from here and from back in Lubbock, made the effort to be there for her. The evening was full of conversation, italian food and achohol (which surpisingly, i had none of). Of course, none of the conversation swayed very far away from relationships, love, and marrage, which I couldn't care less about commitment right now. Of course, in my bitterness, I counted the married couples. Five (six if you count the newly engaged) couples. Thats about half of the attendees. You know though, it's nice to see others happy. To have conversations about "meet cute's" and happy accidents, and about family, instead of the normal bitter, hateful conversations I have. Sadly, I relate more to the hate.

The rest of the weekend was:
Friday, i played Halo and drank until it was about 10:30 and then i watched 28 Weeks Later.
Sunday, I did laundry in a broken dryer, took Heathers brother Zach and his wife around the city, saw The Darjeeling Limited, and the Illustionist.
all the movies were good. i will try and put up some reviews later.


All of this aside, I am extremely happy for both Aaron and Heather because i know that this is what they both wanted very much... so "Congratuations Kids!"

Dude, what the fuck!? You make me sound like i'm the anchor of angst tied to your happiness balloon -- careening you to a place full of sorrow and self-hatred. The onus is not on me, friend. You were emo way before me! - Nick.

Well, of course, i always drum up the conversation myself Nick, but you do participate. Obviously, i am the "emo" one here, i'm just saying I use you to vent because you tend to relate. If that wasn't so beautifully worded i probably would delete it.

Hey now. I stir up a lot of hateful conversations as well. I think we're both in shit-tastic situations and should move to Japan and teach kids about the bible, I mean English.
