I left for the beach on Friday after work. I got to leave a little early as there was little work to do. I hit the road around 4.30pm. I love road trips. I wish I could get paid to drive people everywhere. Anyways. The directions I got or the fact that the roads in Delaware are fucked ended up making Mat mega-confused and ended up getting very disoriented for a bit. I called Zander and talked to his step-father. He said “oh boy” a lot and got me more worried than I should have been. Using my not too instinctual driving instincts I made it there on time! Zander’s mom rocked. She was so cute for a 47 year old mommy. Hot pants man! She even got to see the Stones in ’74. That rules.

So as soon as i got there we headed out to the beach to get some grub. We went to “Dos Locos” – Two crazies?! I got fajitas with chicken. Yum! Mega good and our waitress was from ireland. I thought that was pretty funny. The step-dad talked very little. I had a Corona and Zander’s mom had a Coors light. We walked around the boardwalk for a bit looking at all the stylish whitetrash for a bit. Then we got back and I got to hear what Zander had been recording all summer. Some of it was pretty interesting. The drums were very below par for my standards. But in general i was very happy he was happy with what he did, however. Hopefully after he re-tracks it all, the drums will sound mucho better! Do it to it.

I couldnt stay awake and was in bed by 12.30am. I was exhausted. I fell asleep almost instantly, but woke up at 7.30 am cos my phone wakes me up then for work. Dammit! I did get back to sleep for a few more hours. I finally awoke again and the moms had coffee (black, like my soul- coffee) and these cool apple pastery things that i am going to make everyday for the rest of my life. Damn good they were. So basically we headed out to the beach after that. It was awesome. The water was superb! The sun was superb. I am tan. Well I guess less white than normal. And i got to wear my yellow “Gopher Baroque” tshirt that I always wear at the beach. I also re-affirmed my love for the women’s body. God it’s a tasty thing.

After we were done at the beach we went to get some grub. Yum. Zander saw an old high school friend who kept on staring at me like she knew me and wanted me to say something, or she just wanted to steal my tshirt.

So my mini-beach-vacation rules. I so needed it. I hope to do it again in a few weeks. Maybe in mid september. I just always have the best thoughts and memories from beaches. Cape Cod, Massachusettes all thru my childhood. Ocean City, MD with Zut. Destin, FLA with Feetnik and Gabe and Charlene. The list goes on. Now i can say ReHOBOth, DE with Zander.

Time to get piss drunk.

rock all night

Soundtrack for the ride up to NYC: Sebadoh, Bowie, Pere Ubu, Man or Astroman? (including the song where they use a dot matrix printer!), the frogs, Fugazi, Poster Children, and some random Al music.

My weekend started saturday. I woke up at 5.15am. Thinking i would leave at 6am and get to Zander’s a little early in Baltimore so we would have some lee-way. Ha! Fat chance…I get to his house at 7.15am and no one answers the door. Duh…Zander is fast asleep. After a wait in the car for 30 mins, his father finally answers. He finds me a mug and fills it to the rim with nice black coffee. Props ot Zander’s father, that man knows how to brew some good coffee. Fuck that starbuckeroo’s stuff…Coffee was never meant to be that complicated. Girls on the otherhand…So being the vixen Zander is we finally hit the road…we got to meet up with Jessica for an early morning breakfast as well!!! yum yum…apple bagel!

We got to the South Central NJ train station called “Hampton.” We even went up the wrong way and got yelled at “Where you two goin’?” Ha! Bitch. So we get on the train….sit down fine and we rock it. The this girl shows up and i think she’s cute and Zander thinks she’s 35. Who cares…she was cute. We did notice the ads on the platforms had explicit drawing on most of the girls. Typically adding nipples or convenient use of hair on the face.

Finally we get to Penn Station in NYC. We did call Jamie and Miranda prior to getting there (1 hour prior). Then we wait for Jamie to come. He’s late cos his train broke or something. Zander then proceed to ask me to call Jamie every 42 seconds. Zander seemed to be on a mission. At least he was acting his age! Awww Zander…so cute, so irresistable…so VIXEN. Jamie finally appears out of the blue, like that emo-scene in the end of romance movies when we’re running thru the grass and have the warm embrace. We both held out for a gracious hug and hand shake. He’s my boy! Then we bust out of there and walk to meet up with Miranda and Brian for lunch. (Mind you it’s now 1.30- and we’re supposed to meet at noon).

We get to the place and walk by Brian a few times just to make sure it’s him. Finally we confirm it’s him and chill with him. We find out Miranda left a while back. Then Brian has to boogie to get his reservation for his hotel set in. Finally, we all can eat. And we do. This Italian restaraunt rocked. Jamie actually said that Scorsese eats here. I’d believe it too…the food was killer. Once done looking thru the “whatever’s clever” personals including ads like : LET ME STIMULATE YOUR WIFE, SUPER ORAL FOR ME, SHEMALES ONLY, I NEED A BLOW JOB, MAKE ME YOUR MILK AD, and the best one: SIR ROBERT (PLANT) SLAVE TRAINER…we finally vamos in to the depths of hell in to the subway and go to Jamie’s place…we putz around there until dinner time…

We finally meet up with Kristen and Stephen….Miranda was late. Hmmmm, i am getting tired of writing and i am sure you are, so here are some highlights.

1. Brian vs. Kristen on the sassy fight of love all thru dinner…(ding) Kristen was the winner…Brian was close tho, and gave Kristen a good workout…

2. Laser Tag is the coolest thing known to mankind. I hadn’t had so much fun since I had to care about things. This shit is the bomb-ass. Jamie was the mofo champ of it all.

3. Watching Kristen ride a horse that creaks is a funny thing…

4. Three dudes sleeping on K’s futon is a funny thing…

5. Kristen is not fond of eggrolls or any derivative…

6. Al and Stephen were called “The Girls” – They will wed in the Fall

7. I think Miranda needs a radio show with Feets…

8. Before lunch on sun there was a man calling his wife’s outfit “ugly” to a crowd of strangers, i dont think that man was going to get laid. Others could be lucky…

9. Jamie really likes his Rice Balls and encourages his friends to also like the Balls…

10. Kristen is the sassiest…

11. Brian has many of ways to get his hands dirty…including the subway…

12. People who work in diners tend to like Elvis a little too much…

13. Seeing Jessie Belle at Penn Station was too bizzare. Hi Jordan Catalano!

I know there is more…people who were there…please add…this is now offically a communal post…thanks! But all in all, this was a really cool weekend. It was jam-packed with mucho amounts of fun-ness…In spite of NYC being the place of eternal waiting…it has it’s perks. Oh yeah, and I watched some awards show last nite. I think it was the Acedemy Awards. Bjork played and my mother asked how a 12 year old girl could be playing on the Acedemy Awards…i told her “She is from Iceland, she is Beeeeeeeeeeeee-ork” It was sorta like explaining the stranger about the Canadian that isnt the sharpest tool in the shed. Bjork still annoys me to no end. At least Bob Dylan fixed everything…
