i seriously think about blogging every day. it's very difficult to make yourself sit down and do it from some reason. i wish i could remember all the stuff from the last few weeks that i wanted to blog, but the heat has washed it all out.
ok, first: phoenix. then: tuesday words. coming up later: back to school.
phoenix: is not hot. don't. believe. the. hype. yes, it is a very dry heat. yes you can dehydrate and die. yes you can burn quick. but come on...no humidity? please? you walk outside here right now, you start sweating. you dream of jamming icecicles into your eyes. you can't breathe. you just! wanna! die. it's awful. just awful.
phoenix is cool. well, really, like all cities, there are a lotta cool parts. downtown phoenix is cool. me and k-flix (by the way, the reason i'm talking about phoenix is becuz i went to phoenix a coupla weekends ago to help kristen move. ch-check out her blog for more on the new house and all) went to this place called Uno's Pizza or Pizzaria Uno or something, and I almost cried when I ate the crust of this pizza. it was super-bomb. we also watched Knocked Up. drop what you are doing and go watch it. but be careful of crowning.
the desert is definitely cool, if you like driving and seeing scenery. i learned to love this by visiting my dad. k-flix took me out into the desert towards...flagstaff?...and it was definitely cool. not at all like the desert i pictured in my head, which according to kristen, was the sahara. "no, this is the sonoran desert, patrick."
the highlight, however, was our trip to Tempe on saturday evening. we (of course) went to Borders and did the laptop thing. (no the ACTUAL LAPTOP THING). then we had dinner with some of her friends at Bison Witches. get it? bisonwitchesbuysandwichesbisonwitchesbuysandwichesbisonwitchesbuysandwiches. get it now? i knew you could. they have pretty good sandwiches, although our waitress did not understand our need to make an 8 o'clock door at the Big Bang. "what is the big bang?," you may ask. well, friend, the big bang is only the coolest place in the history of ever. the big bang is a dueling. piano. bar. oh yes. and duel they did. not. they did play HOURS of awesome songs, tho. the highlight, to me, was when all six musicians (they all swapped in and out on piano, bass, and drums) came out and played a rousing rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody. indeed. it was indeed crazy.
other than that, we moved some furniture, watched sportsnight, eated food, drove around, dodged her crazy new roommate, and had general merriment. and a good time was had by all.
by the way, i saw "catch and release" on the flight out there. top notch.
ok. tuesday words.
a. hot: it is hot.
b. lake: we went to virginia's lake house for the fourth of july. good time, long day. two words: fat people can not water ski. and my arms STILL hurt. the end.
c. infection: don't wig out. i have a sinus infection. it's so bad that i had bright orange snot on saturday night. i know. i've had it since about an hour after i landed in phoenix. thanks kristen.
d. syriana: i watched that last weekend. it was pretty good.
e. TRANSFORMERS: i capped that word cuz DAMN!! it was awesome. also awesome: fantastic four 2, and die hard 4. both super awesome. die hard 4 is prolly the second best movie of the year. behind knocked up. that crap was funny.
f. busted: i wrote a new song. it's a worship song. i put it up on my music myspace, if ya wanna hear it. it has the word 'busted' in it.
g. job: mine is lame. how's yours?
OK, last part. i've decided i'm going to try to get into school and be a nuclear medical technician. radiography. i'll be able to make a buncha monies and move around whereever i want. cool, eh? i'll let you know how it goes.
