i did relay for life saturday/sunday. it's this fundraiser thing for cancer research, and it goes for 24 hrs. basically each team gets people to donate, and then on teh big day(s) someone from the team has to be walking aroudn the 1/4mile track for the whole 24 hours. we switch off. but a bunch of us just ended up being awake all 24 hours, hanging out and such. it was reallyreally fun. everyone was there. we had a journey lap at 3am (playing journey really loudly on a shitty boombox while we all went around a few times). at 4am the stompin charlies played. now granted, they are an awful band, but it was very fun. they played and she goes 3 times, and covered the lazardos, and jeff played some songs with them, and they kept screwing up and having to start songs over. and it was at 4am and they were super loud so they woke up a bunch of people (in the field the track goes around, teams set up tents and stuff and everyone was lying around). they played for an hour, then they were packing up when some cops appeared to inform them they had to stop playing cuz there had been some noise complaints.
cop: do you know what time it is??
kid: (checks his watch) 5:03am
cop: don't mouth off to me
then the cop asked why they were playing at 4am and they said because someone at unh had booked them to do so, and "it's for cancer so it's all good", and the cop was like jhvherfhehljvjev and then he told the dj (who, despite being really shitty, had been playing the entire time til 4am without disturbing anyone's sleep) that he had to wait an hour before he started back up so people can get some (1 hour?) sleep.
in all 72,000 cash money was raised, which is more than twice what the organizers had been hoping for. as emmy put it, "we were the most obnoxious, sleep deprived, amazing team there".
but yeah, i was up from 10am saturday - 2pm sunday, and then slept til 7am today. i woke up around midnight, then around 4am, and both times i was like 'man i slept for a long time, i should get up now' then i fell asleep again. i am soooooo woozy right now, i seriously feel really out of it. i had serious trouble walking down the hall. if i still feel like this in a few hours i may have to skip class, i honestly dont trust myself to drive right now
i had the most bizarrely layered dream. i wil try to get this all in order, but it probably will not work because it really made no sense. my dreams never make sense. they're so great though
i was at this place which i think i identified as my parents' house. i was reading an epic poem about some ancient soldier who was being chased by a ghost or something and which somehow involved me remaking super mario bros, it had footnotes and citations and everything (the poem, not mario). mario was like an rpg and there were big maps and i was designing the levels but playing at the same time. i can often rewind my dreams and try things another way but without really being aware that i am doing it, and once it's rewound i have no control over what is happening to me.
and there was a music video about it directed by david cronenburg (i think the band was genesis but i forget. the song was pretty good), it was kinda like the greedy fly video (which is awesome, btw). there was this guy who appeared at a military base and all his crew was dead but him and he didnt know why, but it was him cuz he was infected with alien monster powers or something but didn't know it. and cigarette smoking man from xfiles was there and at 1st he didnt believe the guy but then he did but then he was killed by the fbi for trying to prove it happened (and i remember debating with my parents about if he was really killed or just attacked)(i often have dreams where i'm like inside a movie or game or something but still watching at the same time and discussing it with people. this doesnt seem at all weird until ive woken up). and there was this experiment about how fast viruses grow inside a human brain which proved me wrong somehow, and it was really gross, but nothing really came of it.
and then this turned into watching the thing which turned into BEING the thing, only more like the hulk, and then this turned into about 5 different movies patched together (abyss, island of doctor moreau, etc). i was wandering thru this big military base and everyone was trying to kill me and everything was breaking and bursting into flames and something in the ceiling that held out all teh water from the ocean was breaking and falling apart so there was stuff falling out of the ceiling all teh time and water everywhere and half-animal-people took over part of the base and i was locked in a room with them for awhile but they all died on an electric fence (since i was in a foot of water it shoulda killed me too (i kept spotting holes in the plot and being like wtf), and hart and cara were in englehardt where they were roommates and playing some video game and this drunk asian girl asked me for a PS2 and i told her where their room was
and then i was thinking about how tragic the plotline of this is becasue there isn't really a good guy and bad guy and everyone's doing their best (like ina normal movie hte base commander would be hte bad guy, like in the hulk, but here everything possible went wrong and no one coulda really done any better), and then jenn appeared and i was tryign to explain this to her but she was arguing with me, and then i was an FBI astronaut trying to bring the results of our experiment (the thing)(this was all a huge conspiracy you see) into space but i got attacked by an alien or something, that sucked me into a giant net in its belly. it thought it was trading its eggs for ours, it didnt realize there was a person in there, and i tried to get out but it smacked me
then i was lost driving thru new hampshire and ended up stuck in this deathtrap carnival, where i got pulled onto a rollercoaster with like flying knives and hammers and shit that almost killed us but we were dodging (i had dwarves and a princess with me, and i was a wise but crotchety old man) and in a swamp where this kid was drowning and i saved him but then got beat up by his dad cuz he wasnt supposed to be out so early and he was sick and this was my fault. and this mutant that was addicted to mushrooms that grew under where we were fighting attacked us and me and the mutant got knocked into his mushroom cooking room and almost died. and someone made a movie out of it. teh guy who ran the carnival (which only existed to advertise his cheap orange juice) reformed and his new carnival was nice and happy and everyone loved it.
things that happened that i can't realy fit into the narrative: at one point i was a detective chasing the soldier who wasn't realy a soldier and at one point was a little kid and there was this magic key or something, and i drugged someone and answered the phone for them to keep the soldier from getting caught by my fellow detectives, then later i was this emaciated guy being attacked by the hulk/thing and being slammed into patches of barbed wire becuase we were both penned in.
in my dreams, i am always outside of myself. like, i see myself from this weird out-of-body-experience vantage point and i don't know how i feel about something until i see myself react to it. i had an unrelated dream earlier where i was an aeon flux style super secret agent, fighting some monsters that were a cross between aliens, metroids, and the borg. oh, and gangsters. and i had a wise mentor who ran away when the monsters attacked our matrix training ground. but at one point i got attacked by one of hte borg monsters and got robot-ed and there were all these wires and pipes and shit beign shoved into my head, but i wasn't sure if i was in pain or passed out or what until i started screaming and writhing. then i knew. oh and at one point i was a little girl, like 9, with a shotgun trying to kill the gangsters. you see, my mom either tipped them off or they doublecrossed her, cuz this dude suddenly appeared (he was a b movie actor in real life, i forget who. i think he was in death machine) with his posse to kidnap me and steal my millions (??), i hid in the upstairs bathroom with my shotgun and killed 2 of them but then the main guy got me and gave me to some of his goons to watch but i escaped from them and hid on teh guy's truck when it drove off and tried to kill them again but he caught me again and i forget what happened. this wasn't actually related to the borg aliens part at all, i forget what was going on there but it was pretty fucked up. i remember at one point i (as teh little girl) was watching and then in a movie wherein i (no longer a little girl) was on a spaceship and there were these 3 prisoners who were accused of being traitors but i knew they were framed by our commander, and i tried to smuggle a msg from them to this other framed lady who let me in on a plan she had to escape, but we were all caught by aly who was a double agent for my commander AND the aliens (ohh maybe that's how it tied in) and i got chased by her goons for awhile through a mall and then through the woods, and then i was playing a computer game about fighting the aliens, adn then i really was fighting them but i got captured after corporal hicks got blastd with acid, and that's when i got roboted. i don't remember if anything happened after that
man i have awesome dreams.
i had pizza for breakfast today. desiree brought home piza from work but it's like weird pizza. it isnt cut into pieces at all so i had to saw off a slice. and there's lke weird cheeseless patches
King Nixon (8:28:55 AM): is there pizza out on the counter or did i dream that? i am so out of it right nwo
with forevers (8:29:35 AM): there is pizza, but it's defected
King Nixon (8:29:43 AM): okay good that really happened
King Nixon (8:29:46 AM): i coudlnt remember
me and jeff played the most useless game ever (with assistance from colleen, and jeering from her and casey).. you name a band, then the other person uses the end of that name to name another band, and see how long it can go.. we came up with:

yeah. i didnt realize how effed the pizza was until i got home and kevin ate some. i knew it wasnt cut, but i had finished washing all the dishes already at work when i realized this, so i said fuck it. then kevin said it had cheese all on the bottom and stuff. hahah. sorry guys!
haha no worries, it was still tasty! the half of it that was left this morning was my breakfast, in 2 installments
woody not only do you email that to me, you post it here and i see it again. stop ruining my life.
bwahahha never forget!
and i emailed it twice, even, cuz i screwed the 1st one up
i loved that cop.
kid: (checks his watch) 5:03am
cop: don't mouth off to me
hahahah. i hate how cops expect you to be super respectful to them. suck my ass. you ASKED what time it was douchbag.
anyways, we DID have the best team. there were tons of us. the journy lap was awesome.
the good cops are always overshadowed by the jerks on a powertrip
haha yeah, we win at life. i forget sometimes how awesome my friends are.
that icon just disturbs me so much.
it makes me laugh. perhaps i am disturbed.
i feel for the chickens.
that icon you're using now disturbs me too.
you're just trying to bother me with your icons now aren't you?
you've gotta write a 60,000 word novel now.
Is that a fried chicken head?
I always thought it was just a real pissed off chicken or a chicken with a bad headache.
Is this some kind of delicacy that you New England people eat?
I'm not surprised. Those people eat the damndest things like corn dogs and such. They probably have family Chicken Head recipes.
And Chicken Head Cook-off contests.
Maybe some people have even developed Chicken Head food allergies which would explain why they aren't served on airplanes anymore.
can you develop a chicken head allergy? like the rest of the chicken is fine, but the head makes you sick
