the poo was not having service when i was down close to the front of the stage and then missing a text stephanie sent me saying that palomino stops serving food at 11 and being unable to plan an alternate with them. so, stephanie, heather, and laura left; i suppose they thought i was going straight to the bar) and then neither steph or laura picked up their cellphones, so that left me ladyless (well, ladyless of those particular ladies - i was with brandy who is awesometacular), and i hadn't paid heather back for the ticket. while waiting around and calling everyon, brandy and i saw jeremy who signed my discount coupon for new spectacles which he'd given me back in november and had forgotten to sign. jeremy gave us a ride back to our cars and then brandy and i went to pizza shuttle which is my new favorite greasy spoon in milwaukee. take that, george webb's! i thought i was far more hungry than i was. i ended up ordering a small pizza so i could personalize the toppings (spinach, onions, black olives), their crazy version of cheese filled breadsticks, and a coke which is why i am still wide wide awake at 4am. i just caught up on my friends' list.
i should add these notes here in james' lj format:
- heather, brendan and i ate at an awesome lebanese restaurant on kedzie called Al-Khaymeihthat was delicious.
- on the walk back to brendan's, we went to an argentinian gelato place called penguin.
- i finished hey nostradamus! and douglas coupland totally redeemed himself after me only being mildly interested in the last two i read of his. it was magnificent and i totally cried at the end while driving. they should list that in their description of the audiobook. read it.
- i started "reading" (i will continue to call listening to audiobooks reading because it really is nearly the same only i can't tab pages with post-its where i don't know a word, or if i want to underline a passage and write it down later) america: the audiobook and i don't know. i did laugh out loud once thus far, but i think it really would be something i'd rather flip through in bits, as diana said. it is pretty awesome that jon stewart and stephen colbert read it. i don't know the other voice though.
