anna is having a party at her place, and i’m there. thaison calls me and tells me he is at my house. i’m like, “what?!” so i don’t tell anyone because i’m sure it’s a surprise. it is funny because as i was leaving anna’s, i tell her i have to run errands and somehow his name slips out. not that anyone suspects he is in town, though.
i drive home to get him, and on my way, i call phil to tell him to meet me there. i can barely start my car, though; i have to try three times. so i eventually get him and we go back to the party. eventually, he tells me i never gave him a chance, and i am like, wth, liar, and we talk about that.
inspiration: i’ve been trying to get my friend thaison to come back to seattle for his birthday and he wouldn’t this past weekend.
i was running in a marathon with a few of my friends, and we stopped for a bathroom break, and my friend goes, “are you on your period?” and i said, “no, not for a couple of days.” but when i went to the bathroom, i had my period. some story happened in the bathroom, but i can’t remember – something about rachel bilson being in it. for some odd reason, the next scene i remember is in chinatown, at a dim sum restaurant. we were getting ready to order while we waited for people. but now my family is there. so are my girl friends. i am sitting there and i realize it is this girl named ann’s birthday. i look outside and see a flower vendor. so i start looking for cash in my backpack to buy her a flower. i can’t find any. i ask my mom for some. she didn’t have any either, i guess.
oh yeah, and my cousin is talking to my mom about getting a discount at a retail store my mom worked at, i guess.
this guy named biagio that i know says he has some, but it might be in his beret in his car. i’m finally reaching into my bag and i don’t find cash, but i find one of my uncashed paychecks for $1k or something, but it was dated for 2001. i get pissed at myself because i had never noticed it was missing. i ask my mom where there is an atm, and she says downtown. i put the check in my shirt so i don’t forget. the end. i wake up reaching for where i think my check is.
