And the wheel goes 'round

Me "wailing away" on my new guitar. Dag, yo.

Check that action out. It makes me wanna be more like, How boring would that be, though?

I really don't have much more to say. We've picked my brother up. Now I know how it feels to be left out. He seems a little bombastic with all his "new experiences," kind of "holier than thou," but he's like that anyway. Actually, I already know what it's like to feel left out. Maybe that's why I was starting to enjoy the whole only child thing.
PA was boring and kind of depressing. 'Nuff said. The DMB show tomorrow will definitely be much more exciting. We'll be heading out tomorrow at 10, go to the park for awhile, "watch" the show (don't know how possible that'll be since we have lawn seats), then sleep at my nana's house. I know exactly where I'm going, thank God. I hope all goes well, like with the weather and people's amount of preparedness and all...;-P
Aaron comes the day after. My mom's making him a nice outfit for the Renaissance Fair. My dress is already hanging in my closet, waiting for August 8th.
I really have to stop going out to eat so damn much. I always feel so full, in other words, fat. Ick.

Dead on arrival

My new printer, which was pronounced dead on arrival at the repairman the other day, has been scrapped, but I got a new one for free in its place. Sweet deal. "Sweet lady freedom -- let's make out!" (- Strong Bad)
Work went quite well tonight. I didn't make as much as I wish I did, however. I don't understand how all of a sudden my tips aren't as good as I expected. Am I just not as busy as I used to be because it's summer and not as busy? Is it because I can't watch it all add up as much anymore because I don't work as much? It's funny how I had more hours during school than I do now during the summer, when I'm more available for them. Go figure. Anyway, it turns out I won't be working a double shift tomorrow. In fact, I won't be working at all tomorrow. Now comes the time when I need to search for something to do during the evening. Maybe I'll go to that new movie theater they have in New Hartford and spend some of my tip money that I made tonight. This could work. Maybe I'll coax Aaron into coming with me, if he's up for it...
Tomorrow we go to get Michael. So it's been 3 weeks of summer already? Man. Time does fly when you're having fun, especially if you're having fun being an only child. I don't know if I'm going to be able to readjust to life with a sibling. These have been some of the best weeks of my life! Well, it sounds mean know what I mean. ;-P
Tonight Aaron's helping a bud who's moving out. Well, actually a budette. Whatever. I miss him.
Tuesday's the big day -- Dave Matthews Band! We've figured it all out. I went to Basloe today to visit Savanna and ended up visiting a lot more people than just her. Turns out Mark Conley'll be there too, so that'll be fun. We're going to head up early (I'm driving), around 10 or 11 in the morning, so that we can catch some time at the park before the concert. It's gonna be a blast. Then we're all sleeping over at nana's and driving back early the next morning. That'll be a trip -- driving back starting 9 in the morning to get Pete and Lou to work. Ho boy. Talk about lack of sleep. Oh well, it should be fun anyway.
What's also cool is that Aaron might show up Tuesday evening and stay until Thursday morning, since I don't have to work again until Thursday night. By the way, my schedule for next week is as follows:
Tuesday: on call (won't be able to come in anyway because of the concert -- not that I expect to get called in anyway)
Friday: 3:30 pm (possibly 2:30, depends on certain things I don't really know about)
It should be a good week. At least I'm guaranteed two nights of work. On Saturday I have my grad. party, so I have that off at least. I'm gonna have to let them know about Saturday the 31st not being a possibility for me to work either, because of the Rotex BBQ at Scott's. I've been thinking I'll probably end up driving up there to Syracuse and staying with Aaron, unless he's planning on driving me himself. What's good is that I don't normally work on Saturday anymore anyway, so it probably won't be a problem; there are 7 other waitresses on our staff, so it shouldn't be a bad thing at all if I ask for it off. Half of those girls need the money more than I do anyway, since they don't live at home anymore and have to support themselves. I'm welcoming the day off tomorrow though, which came as a surprise tonight.
My legs hurt. I don't know how much longer I'm going to be online, especially since Aaron's gone for the night. Until then, mes amis. Schlaft und traeumt schoen!

(Wow, I love being so "multi-kulti"!) ;-P

I've taken on the, well, undertaking, of composing a stage play, entitled...well, Untitled, for now. It's based on the simple fact that...
"Turns out it's not where, but who you're with that really matters." - Dave Matthews

Should be an interesting attempt. More to come on that as the scenes progress -- literally.
Work tomorrow and Saturday -- pulling a double shift then. Eek. Hopefully next week I'll get some crunch time in with Aaron so that I can prove to him who the real Tribial Pursuit champion is...!

The disbelief and anger of former friends toward me really saddens me. It really does. I thought people cared. I guess it's just another reason to sever ties now while there's still time so that I can be fully ready to meet my new future head on. It's frustrating and saddening.

Tables turned again on you my friend,
Oh you and I have faced each other time and time out.
I know it's sometimes hard,
But knowing just that we will get along until we are old and gray
And huddled up, and doubled up.
We'll sit and laugh of times were hard,
Laugh of times when we thought it all would end,
It all was over, then again...

And all that I want is this way.
And to leave you, well I'd die,
Oh my friend.
It'll be you until the end with me, always...

La da da da da da

My new Takamine acoustic/electric, model EG561C...delicious.

It's a beautiful thing, this guitar. Now I can play Weezer (who use overdrive half the time) and Dashboard Confessional (the older stuff, that is) with the flip of a switch (from my new Marshall amp). Yes, folks, the beauty you see before you is the gradutation present from my parents, which I shall be bringing along with me to college in the fall. I can't wait until August 26th...
Another reason I can't wait to move is that I won't have to waitress anymore. Which reminds me -- my schedule for next week is as follows:
Thursday: on call for night
Friday: 2:30 - ?
Saturday: 11:30am - 3pm, 4:30 - ?
It should be a busy weekend for me. Next Sunday we're going to PA to pick up my brother from his 3 week long trip. It's been that long already? Amazing. Then the next Saturday is my graduation party. Just another month or so of work and then I'm scot free. Who knows? I might get a couple more Saturdays off between now and August...
