Blast from the Past
First off: Happy New Year! Merry Christmas! And all that crap...
New Year's Jessica had just gotten back from Singapore, and I had
opened the store, so we were both exhausted. We each took naps, but we
were so busy talking that neither of us started until around 6pm. Then
because we woke up so late (I slept on the couch, but still), we were
both still groggy and not nearly motivated enough to leave the
apartment. So Jessica and I spent New Year's Eve at home watching
movies. It was kinda awesome.
To make up for it though, we went
out on Thursday to a club in West Hollywood called Rage. West Hollywood.
Matt, one of Jessica's friend's from Arizona is going to Korea for a
year so is crashing on our couch for a week because there's some kind of
problem with his visa, and he's already moved out of his apartment. But
Matt is the only gay one who went the other night and we were in West
Hollywood. It was kinda awesome though. because we got there before
11pm, there was no cover, and drinks were $5 each, and Matt got really
drunk, and I had three drinks. The dancing was a lot of fun, and they
were playing videos instead of just music, which was cool. But they
played the Britney Spears VMA video, and I couldn't stop laughing. It
was really sad.
Then last night, Saturday, was Princess'
birthday. We went to this bar in Culver City called Backstage. Our
waitress was awful, the food was mediocre but the drinks were good. It
was strange, because it was Saturday, the place was packed, and it was
such a dive. It was a lot of fun though. There was Karaoke though, which
is why I think Princess chose it. I stayed later than I intended, but I
was having a ton of fun. I sang "Barbie Girl" by Aqua (yeah, that
really annoying song about Barbie and Ken), and I got a ton of good
comments about it. Like I was totally channeling them with the high
pitched singing. But the crazy thing was that around 1-1:15-ish we went
up the the bar to pay the tab, to split it up. There were a couple of
guys there but I didn't really pay attention because we were trying to
figure out the money thing (we had been charged for some food item that
no one ordered or got). But I turned, because Princess and her friend
Joy were talking to another waitress (ours had strangely left at
midnight), a very drunken guy asked, "Don't you just love this song?"
("The Twist" was playing, or rather being sung I think) I answered in
the affirmative, and then he asked my name. I told him my first name and
then he came back with my full name, and I realized that we had gone to
grade school together. This was the Bryan (with a Y, the Brian with an I
was a little red-headed kid) that I had a huge crush on when I was 10
years old. He moved down here for film school to do directing, but now
he does editing of movie trailers, which is strange because that's what I
had wanted to do, or pretty near anyway. But he was too drunk to stay
focused on anyone thing for too long and wandered off to steal the
microphone from the DJ (unsuccessfully I might add), so I started
chatting to his friends because by this point Princess had said goodbye
and left. I don't remember any of their names except for two because I
was actually introduced to Bobby, and because Dave was cute and asked
for my number. Dave is currently out of work because of the writer's
strike, but was formerly working in production on an NBC show. He said
he'd call in a few days, and I hope he does.
But all of the guys were totally cute.
Question of the Day: Who did you have a crush on in grade school?
