Next time I say I’m going to bed early hit me and tell me it ain’t gonna happen. ‘Cause it ain’t. It’s 3:30am. Happy CANADA DAY!

I chatted for 2 1/2 hrs. I had a good time.

Moved my brother Tom into his new apt. Rented “Two if by Sea”. Not that great. Watched “Cold Dog Soup” on TV. I won’t go into details, but it’s about a dead dog and people wanting to sell it and no one buying. Great movie. Class it with Brazil. Both are great.

Dad must renew the internet thing. I was just “chatting” for 2 hours with MAXX!, Conscience, SKA~ter, and I think someone else. No meaningful conversation I just added my little quips. They all know each other though so I was a bit of an outsider. I had people calling Conscience a geek though, so that’s a plus. I had some input.

My parents went to see the stage production of Sunset Boulevard tonight so I rented “Roger & Me” by Michael Moore. It’s a documentary about Flint, Michigan. Very depressing. Great movie though. You don’t even feel the time go by. Not boring. Amusing lots of the time. Michael Moore is a genius. He created the show TV Nation. It’s been cancelled twice. Two networks. but it has quite the cult following and everyone loved it. Except the people they screwed on it.

One episode was called, “Payback night” or something and they asked a bunch of people what they hated. They said trucks picking up dumpsters, so they got a bunch of garbage trucks and dumpsters and they went to the house of the president of BFI, who lives where there are no dumpsters, and they banged them about. Very funny.

Well, I got all mid and high 70s in school this semester. Who knows what next year will hold for me. I hope I’m in ALL of K____’s classes. Oh well. I rollerbladed while I waited on the internet in my basement. I really love firefly, an online BBS type thing I’m a member of. They will be having an online interview with PULP in a couple of weeks. PULP!! and then later, after that, FOO Fighters!! Two huge! bands. One band I love and the other one I’d chat with anyway because they’re famous. I love Pulp if you were confused.

On July first there will be a chat with Dar Williams. I don’t know who that is, but I’ll keep my ears open. I’ll have to ask Jarvis Cocker if he had a lot of girl problems in the past judging from his music.

As for the Foo Fighters… hmm, what’s your web site? Who are the pixies? They’re a band and it seems they’re kinda retroish or something. I must know!

I don’t get my report card until tomorrow, but all that stuff still applies. I have a nose bleed. On the outside. I don’t know where it came from. Oh well.

I hope to see K____ B____, M____ C____ or S____ F____ when I get my report card. I miss them all and I’m getting bored. I’m losing their images.

I blew it on the last day. I could’ve dragged out my history exam so I could leave at the same time as K____, but NOOO! J____ left and I was sick of sitting. Dammit. Well, maybe I’ll get the job at Famous Players. Everyone goes to the movies at least once in the summer. I really want to see her again. Hell! I want to talk, walk, sit or whatever with her. I just want to be near her. Near as in right beside her in my arms. Gaga, puppy love, stupid teenage crush. I just hope this isn’t read until I’m good and dead.

Oww! I think I have heartburn. I had a melted cheese and garlic powder on toast bedtime snack. It was good.

Well, I got my hairs cut today! The first step towards becoming a workin’ man. My mom typed up my resume and application form and letter o’ application and I guess I’ll give them to the theatre on friday. Why not tomorrow? I have to get my report card.

You know it’s not so good to be “such a great kid!”. Everyone thinks you’re going to get all these A’s and stuff. They don’t realize that it didn’t usta take as much to get high grades, but now in highschool you don’t get marks for sitting quietly or bringing all your books. And you have to be more than a pretty face to be teachers pet. You have to suck up like a $500 hooker! I predict 60s and 70s. High 60s, mid 70s. I failed math last semester. I don’t care, I know the basics of math. I know the main things you need to know. I know adding, subtracting, it takes me a while but I know multiplication and division and I can work out percentages. and tax. It’s not a problem. YES! I’M SLOW AT EVEN THE MOST BASIC STUFF BUT I’M PRETTY DAMN SURE IT ISN’T BECAUSE I HAVEN’T LEARNED IT. IT JUST TAKES ME A MINUTE!

I know my mom won’t be happy unless I live up to what I built up in her head as the idea that I’m a super genius. I TOOK THE TEST IN GRADE ONE!! I’M NOT A GENIUS!!! I’VE ALWAYS BEEN SLOW. SHUT UP!

Well, to get my very own Theremax Theremin Kit it will cost $128 and a bunch of cents. In America, and I assume will take 6 to 8 weeks for delivery. I know, I know, I won’t get it until after the summer, but then by the next summer I’ll be so good I can hire myself out as a theremin player. Theremin PLayer for Hire. I’ll do weddings, funerals, bar mitxvahs, all that jazz. Yeah, that’s it. I already sent away for a theremin info package from somewhere for free. So I’ll be getting that soon I hope and then I’ll be on a mailing list and I’ll get prsonalized junk mail and if I ask my mom, letterbombs and things ’cause she’s PARANOID. I just made that word up. That’s my word. I sure hope I get my theremin and put it together with no problems.

My brother came home today. He got me a 25 dollar gift certficate for HMV so I bought the Pulp CD Different Class. A good CD. Pretty much all about sex.

I went to a WWW site called Firefly tonight. You give all your favourite bands or movies and it tells you things you should like. You also get your own personal web page. But it can only be accessed by other members of Firefly so that’s a downer, but then again, it’s free, so it’s no big deal to advertise everywhere. There are chat rooms and e-mail and everything between members and it’s really cool. But I think it is only on during the day. Oh well, I think I’ll love it.
