Packing Procrastinator

Comments (8)

It's 5 a.m. on May 22, 2008, as I write this. (Hi, still backdating my entries here.) I leave in less than three hours for the airport. In ten hours, I will be in Texas, Lord willing, to see Sexy Beast. He's one of my favorite people on the planet, and he's getting commissioned into the Marines on Friday night. Apparently, I've already mentioned this, so I'll skip along to the new parts.

I'll also hopefully be seeing my friend Jason, the father of my imaginary child and the star of two embarrassing posts. He's a pretty rockin' kid (despite being a ninja) for a multitude of reasons, one of which is that he let me talk him into starting a blog. Currently, he only has one post, but it's part of a series that he'll be writing. The best part? This work of fiction is entirely based on a really vivid dream. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

On a related note, I'd totally love it if you would read his blog, pantalonesindeed.wordpress.com, and leave a comment encouraging him to continue.

Meanwhile, I'm going to do that whole packing thing and see if I can manage to get to Texas 1) without the fine people at American Airlines scaring the pants off of me and 2) without sobbing my eyes out because I won't be in seat 17F. (Shut up. OCD is hot, and you know it.) Wish me luck, my pretties!

Here's hoping you get on the AA flight before they enact the $15 for your first checked bag.

Oh, and have fun on your trip!

Pimp wonders why it seems no effort is being made to include him and his awesometasticaly amazing friends in the boringly boring town of Longview during this brief visit to this horrendously over ego-ed state in which they have chosen to obtain schooling...

He points out quite astutely that what with Memorial Day being that weekend, most of them are free until that Monday. Before you go suggesting that we should therefore spend the effort to come to Dallas and see you, Pimp will also observe that in the past, time spent with Rachel in Dallas is almost invariably monopolized by the two freinds you have mentioned in the post ocurring in near imediate priorness to this comment. Pimp will of course understand if you simply cannot make it to the region of this oversized state in which he and his stupendously fantasmarific friends preside, but hopes that at least a very brief visit may be arranged...

Or whatever...

Welcome to Texas. I live in Fort Worth. But I won't shamelessly beg you to come visit me...that would be kind of weird, I think. Make me look like some kind of stalker/pervert or something. I do hope you have a good time and don't melt in our unseasonably warm temperatures (we hit 99 a couple days ago!). I hope your friend's ceremony goes well, too.

I would also like to point out, in light of your bitter disappointment over my liking of David Cook, that I was also a David A. fan. I thought from the beginning that he could go all the way. But I'm more of a "rocker" myself, and like Cook's style better. Archuleta, though, has that dreamy-eyed, soul-stealing style about him that makes all the girls go "ga-ga" and forget who they were thinking about that wasn't David Archuleta for a few minutes. That may have even happened to me when I was watching. Heck, I think I might have even been crying when he got through with "Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me..." All in all, it was a great race to the finish. Perhaps the best they've ever had (at least since I got sucked into the void that is American Idol...) Bye for now!

Ooh, have fun in Texas dude. I'm sorry about your plane ticket. I get the OCD.

It was weird. I woke up and you were gone. I thought you were a pirate, not a ninja... you creeper. Anyhow, have fun. I'll finish off season six of 24 for you while you're gone. Don't worry, though. I'll do a wicked reenactment when you get back. It'll be awesome. Or at the very least, laughable.

Sorry for not making it up to Dallas to visit you. As Pimp stated earlier there does tend to be a certain amount of drooling over Sexy Beast whenever you get near him, and as this was his special weekend, we here decided that the drooling should be able to be enjoyed unhindered. I hope all went well, and that, even though we didn't tell you to, you told Sexy Beast hi and congratulations from us here in Longview...before the drooling commenced :)
