Thoughts From The Bowl: Weekend-end

It’s over. Completely over. At least I’m going away from it feeling somewhat productive.

Friday (had it off), I was expecting to install new tires on my car, but that didn’t happen. Turns out they didn’t order it in time and now I’m gonna have to wait until Tuesday/Wednesday. Kind of pissed me off because I specifically set aside time that day to get it done. Now it will have to wait for next weekend. Friday night was pretty boring. Drinking with friends. Watched Blue Crush. Mmm… blondes.

Saturday, my friends and I woke up early (relatively) to go hiking. Since we can get pretty unproductive together, so things didn’t get started until 3pm. We drove up to Chantry Flats and hiked in about 1.5 miles. I have a lot of video and stills from it so I’ll try and get it up here as soon as I can. On the way back, we passed this older guy who asked us if we went all the way to the top. I’m about 15 pounds overweight and wearing a Hawaiian shirt. What do you think? It turns out “all the way to the top” is actually 11 miles. Sounds doable so we’re gonna keep trying. If the shit goes down, though, and we get lost in the woods, I’m eating Danny first.

After a quick stop to a sushi bar, we met up with a couple of other friends who were celebrating their one year anniversary by going out to the Irwindale Speedway to check out a race. Yes, they’re white. Sitting in the grand stands, all I could think about was something a someone (originally from Atlanta) told me last week: “The rednecks here are the same as the ones back South, but without the accent and wearing less plaid.” This was a magnificent showcase of Caucasian at its best… and I was a part of it.

This morning I woke up early (again relative) and met up with the family to celebrate the Easter thing. Nothing big. We went out for lunch and came back to my parent’s house to spend time with each other. Later on I met up with a friend and checked out Malibu’s Most Wanted (pass on this one).

That pretty much brings me up to this point… sitting on the toilet and posting to my blog. Oh, happy Easter.
