... i picked up the obcr sort of randomly at best buy yesterday... so in love. "everyone's a little bit racist" might just be my favorite song from a musical ever
anyway. my last couple days have been so awesome. friday afternoon my beloved miriam came and picked angela and i up, and then we went back to her dorm in iowa city and sat around for a bit... called talia, and met her to go to the mill. and.. sat around, got some food (mmm, non-dorm food) and saw megan! and devon! hi megan and devon! also some assorted random friends of megan's, and her parents. the stu show was awesome and hilarious and amazing and... here's the setlist:
doppelganger body donor
little white town
flower of a zero
fall awake (and fall awake footloose style)
nothing in between
(noncore) 8 days in the lotus
dresden (although i mistakenly believed it to be "windmills" for about half of the song. which was weird, because next was...)
windmills and wheatfields
it's all just because (including the "school" verse twice because he forgot)
(as elvis costello, including hat, glasses, and a sharpie gap between his teeth)
watching the detectives
(< /elvis >)
and she was
burning down the house
sooo yeah, that was great.
and then saturday, miriam and angela and i hung out around iowa city for awhile. whoa, civilization. and then, back to g-town. (mad, mad love to miriam for coming out to get us and take us back ^_^)
saturday night was a looot of fun... watched some mst3k with julia, gina, and angela, and then julia and i went on a random freezing walk around campus/town with some of the other haines3rdians and honorary haines3rdians. which was fun. also cold. and then we came back and made assorted hot beverages, and played the paper game... where you sit around and write like, "who", and then fold over and pass it, and then "what they were wearing" and fold over and pass, etc. until you get a story... which was much fun. there was one about me ^_^ let me go geeet it.
renata, wearing a neon yellow muumuu on haines 4th, with walt whitman playing tiddly winks, said "that's what SHE said!", because sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't.
that's not an especially funny one, but i saved it because it's about me. *nod*
sooo yeah. and then... this morning, ate brunch. came back here. wrote this. yes.
