this weekend14 februari 2005
was a good one.
me and molly went to town on friday night. hello fever played. and also hidden cameras but unfortunately they played at the same time which sucked. i’ve seen hc before but not hello fever so i sticked to my friends. it was great to see them and even though i heard their rehearsal before i was positively suprised!
at this place i saw a very beautiful person. but i couldn’t tell if the person was a girl or a boy. i really liked that. it turned out that it was a girl. anyway, after gig we ended up at kayes house and because i was so keen on going to a diner i managed to convince everyone to go so we went down to the nite spot on sunset. dj diner with good food. i had a vegetarian BLT with fries!
the waiter: ”You know, you guys have a lot of fried food here!”’
saturday i met up with johan söderbäck and together with the rest we went down to chinatown and the big chinese new year parade – which was a weird one. first 200 people in the parade carried american flags in various sizes. then i was expecting to see some chinese ones but they never came! i got all crazy about it and tried to see atleast one throughout the day but i couldn’t see one single chinese flag at the chinese new years parade!!! but it was fun though. weird vehicles, misses, mayors and councilmen.
aw, i am to tired for this writing so i’ll make it quick:
me and johan spent most of saturday night walking. we walked all the way to trader joes just to buy 2 dollar wine (which was really good actually) and then back to kaye’s house. god dammit we were tired. but there was a party waiting for us. kaye was very kind and drove us there because we had no energy left. the party was awesome, my first real keg party. it was exactly like all the high school films except people were 28 instead of 18. i was talking to someone about how the only perception i had of the u.s. before i came here (nyc not included) was through movies and tv series. i never knew if that was any truth or not. i still don’t know actually.
slept at kayes house and woke up when the landlady came over and she was a talker! oh man. she hung around for a while and when she left me and kaye took off on a nice bike ride. we saw a couple – wait, last night i learned that ”a couple” means two and not so much more so that would be wrong, lets say i saw some – really nice old victorian buildings. then we cycled all the way to, hmm, i forgot the name of the hood but we ate super nice burritos. then i found an ugly pair of jeans in a thrift store and bought them.
later we rented some movies and drove over here to mollys house and saw them. it was the valley girl and bottle rocket. valley girl was amazing. the movie dealt with the difference between people from the valley and the people from LA. man it was great. nicholas cage was an LA dude. bottle rocket was also good. but not as good as wes’ other film, rushmore.
ok i’m out
Happy St Valentine’s Day to you!!!
