Walking across campus this afternoon to pick up a prescription1, everything felt really quiet, like Girlfriend in a Coma, where most of the world just fell asleep at the same time. Am I evil for thinking that' might be nice?
I sat under a tree by the HUB to read some of McSweeney's on one of the few remaining patches of green grass in Seattle 2. I stayed for a while, until it looked like the people who hit each other with sticks were reaching a quorum. If the kid whose pants were actually sagging below his buttocks didn't kill the tranquil mood, the medieval fighters definitely would have.

At home, I conversed with Jenna with the wonderful world of instant messaging. I tried to multi-task and play Scrabble, but I kept losing when I'd get caught playing fake words.

I met Rachel & Pancho to see Y Tu Mama Tambien again. Mostly because I was bored and getting out of the apartment and interacting with other humans sounded like a good thing. Before the movie, we had mojitos at Ruby. If you're in the area and need a perfect summer drink you're really doing yourself a disservice if you skip the opportunity to have one for the low price of $3.

On second viewing, I tried to pay more attention to the actors and the scenery instead of the subtitles. The movie felt more heavier or more depressing this time.


On the way home, I dropped in to Tower to buy some CDs to appease my craving for new music.

(1) Claritin-D. I've been out for a few days and am starting to wonder whether I really need it. Maybe it's still hanging out in my system?

(2) I am conflicted about the grass situation. I am not a fan of mowing the lawn, so I should like the dead brown maintenance-free grass situation. At the same time, I can't deny the goodness of soft green grass.

not evil to feel this way, just freaky.
thanks(?)

Of course, the practical aspects would be pretty horrible and not at all worth it. I suppose a couple magic hours of quiet -- free from traffic, news of war & kidnapping, and the general noise of people -- can be achieved without mass extinction.
Claritin D - that stuff rocks and it does stay in your system. Go w/out it for many a day and you'll see.

Green grass - what's that? We only have 50 days worth of water in Cary - watering is no longer allowed. Neither is:
-car washing
-power washing
-planting new grass
-other stuff that wastes water (fountains)

oh, and - more heavier?
I went without it for a few days and survived. I think that's good, though it could convince people to stop taking it!

Yes, in the long run, I think that water conservation is much better than unnaturally green grass. Now, if we could just convince Southern California ...

more heavier: eek! bad editing.
