Well, I haven’t broken my arm.

I tried to put up an internet Christmas list but the graphics don’t work right. I’ll just do a paper one and email it to my brother.

So Star Trek 8 comes out on Friday. I’m going to see it with W____. He’s a big trekker. It should be entertaining.

I’m teaching my mom how to play pool.

There’s a girl in sociology named M____ L____. I swear she could be a model.

On Friday was the pie auction. The highest bidder gets to throw a pie at a teacher. I had a good view of K____ but she seems to be fading out of my thoughts. M____ coming in instead, as well as B____ D____ and T____.

The Weezer concert was on Friday too. I didn’t go, as I’m sure you guess. I bet it was good. Damn. Next time.

S____ came over on Friday. We rented “Strange Days” — good — and “Dollman vs. The Demonic Toys” — horrible. But that was the plan.

Dollman opened with the line, “It’s a cruel world when you’re only a foot tall. Shrunk by aliens.” Man! Super film! We rented “Psycho Cop” but didn’t get to watch it. I should try to watch it tomorrow. I doubt I will.

I got my theremin back on friday. It works great! Really terrific. Oh man, it’s super! Why did I get it? It doesn’t matter! I love it! I want to paint a tie-dye pattern on it. That would be neat! I need cool stickers and stuff to put on it for decoration.

I finished my handout for sociology today. I doubt I’ll do much more editing. If any. I wonder what kind of research I could do for the essay. I’ll do a lot of internet stuff, but I want real books too.

My uncle fell asleep with the TV on again. I can hear the test pattern.

Haven’t written since Thursday.

On Friday S____ and I went to the mall. I bought a Pinky and the Brain shirt and a Weezer shirt. Both slightly big. Then I bought the Blur CD “The Great Escape” for six dollars. Then we went to see “Thinner” by Stephen King where we met a couple of really strange girls who we promptly fucked. Ha! Yeah right! They made fun of us. Then we rented “Bambi meets Godzilla and other weird cartoons” and “The Last Supper”, and I had taped “The Producers” a while back so we stayed up til 6am and when we got up we went on the internet and all in all it was a fun weekend.

Mom and dad bought a bread maker and a toaster and some cheez whiz. and I saw “Things to do in Denver when you’re dead”.

All the movies except for Thinner were good. The Last Supper being the best. Great ending! And I saw a shirt that says, “You suck” on it. K____ wants a shirt that says, “You suck” on it. I will tell her about it. Yes I will. Tomorrow. Yes I will.

Well, I didn’t re-write in K____’s yearbook. Oh well. I tried to scan my yearbook to get pictures for this but when I printed it it went all screwy, so I’ll have to xerox it or something. Oh well. Too bad.

This journal thing is a really good idea because I talk to myself anyway, so this way if anyone stumbles upon this then they will peer into my soul. Of course I keep emotions like depression and sorrow out of this because 1) I don’t want to be a downer to anyone and 2) I can’t write and cry at the same time.

I’ve had nights where I lie in bed crying, about nothing all that good. No one likes me, why don’t I have friends, I’m stupid, my life is going nowhere… things like that. I also forget to put things in here that I mean to, or things that were really important.

Ooo! I know. My mom got a cheque for $1000+ today so we’re going shopping tomorrow. I wonder what I’ll end up getting.

Still no word on the Weezer concert or the Huevos Rancheros CD I ordered. Oh well. I’m sure it will come into place soon enough.

I think S____ and I ought to shoot a movie next summer, just on Hi8, and then when school comes in, use the equipment to edit it. Good idea, no?

Did I mention the video for “Waiting” by The Rentals? Great video, dynamite. Matt Sharp is SUPER DUPERLY COOL in it.

Didn’t do anything today really. I drove a bit with mom. Kept stalling the car. Rented “Twister”. Neat movie. Good effects but that’s about it. Not a great movie. Oh well.

So I figure for Hallowe’en I’ll carve an “Independence Day” pumpkin and something else. I haven’t decided yet. Maybe “Mars Attacks”, but that isn’t due out until December 13. Can’t wait. It’ll be awesome.

I’ll start driving lessons in Driver’s Ed. on Friday. Also on friday I am going to a cartoon festival with my brother and my uncle. Tomorrow I’m going to drive for the first time. It’ll be fun.

Last year around Hallow’s Eve K____ and S____ had one of those Murder Mystery things, so tomorrow I’m going to try to go downstairs at school at the same time D____ B____ will be at his locker, which is near S____ and K____’s lockers and I’ll ask one of them if they’re having it again this year and hopefully they’ll invite me. That would be dynamite.

S____ came over last night. We rented Escape from New York, From Dusk til Dawn and The Evil Dead. All were good. All were goofy. I’m very tired.
