So, we went to the show, and it was amazing. It made me really nastalgic for old school coos bay shows at the legion with back wash and the 12mcfcrc. Prior to the show, Andy told me about the name of AJ's band, I guess the Wobblies were a labor union who were indicted for killing some high ranking officials, and the president roosevelt got all pissed and stuff and they basically told him to fuck off, or something like that. So all their songs are about how the government sucks and a shitty system. Good stuff.
And then after the show, we went to a party at this couple's really nice house. There was house music/ R&B shit blaring, totally not what I expected, but it was good. I talked to AJ a lot, him and Andy and this other guy Brian all went to Thurston together and have known each other for ever. AJ was so cute! He has this adorable little face, a cute little sheepish smile, all on this huge six foot something body with fat ass combat boots and shit. It was so cute. I met his brother, Ty, the drummer, and the other guys from the band. Andy had class @ 9 this morning, so we left at about 1:30. On our way out, AJ gave me this cute little hadshake and told me I should come hang out with them again some time soon. And then when Andy and i were walking back to the car, I tee-hee'd and Andy was all paranoid cuz I wouldn't tell him why.
And then, on the way home, he starts bitching about his girlfriend out of the middle of nowhere. About how she doesn't have any time for him and she doesn't care for him and how he can't remember why he fell for her in the first place. So I told him flat out that he needed to do something about it. Obviously, he is a very easy-going and laid back person by nature, but that he deserved better. And he just kept bitching! Not like that is going to do anything for my predictament with him, she encourages him to hang out with me. I am his "only girl friend here." (exact quote). He's like, "I don't know why, I just can't be friends with a girl. Except you." And then I asked him, "what, is it just do them or ditch them?" And he was like, "yeah, basically." So, apparently he doesn't see me that way. Or he does and thinks I don't. He makes me miss Paul and John. And then he asked me if I was seeing any hot guys lately. hahaha. no. He is still way too excited for his own good to take me to coos bay.
OMG! We were talking about parking lots and handicapped spots, and he told me that his brother used to have one for a little bit because he was handicapped. (This all DOES have a point). "Because he got shot." OMG! They all went to thurston high. And he got shot by Kip Kinkle. Proof:
