What a Weekend!

So I got up at 8am on Sunday to go to the MARAC fundraiser, a special screening of National Treasure, which was deeply funny. It was great because over half the people there were from NARA so every time they did a scene there or at LC there were huge catcalls and hoots. Also funny was whenever the Declaration of Independence was in danger or mistreated (every ten minutes) there was a huge GASP. Like seriously, the most tense moment in the theater was no character's death or imminent doom but when the Declaration in its plastic tube gets dropped in the street and continually narrowly runover. Also funny was how easy it was for Weenie Guy to break into part of a Metro station to set up some computers and cameras to mess with NARA security. Hee! At least Sean Bean made it out of there alive, that's all I can say.

After that I went to Fado's with a crowd for Irish goodness. I treated Andrew due to his ending bachelorhood. I've said all I can say about that and now just have to concentrate on being his friend no matter what. But I keep getting these bad dreams (Seriously, the last week I haven't slept without waking up 5 or 6 times in a sweat) and since sometimes I get pre-cog I am scared shitless. It really fucking sucks when all you can do is wish someone well and nothing else.

And then after that a close friend treated me to a spoling weekend and say through a dorkie Jackie Chan movie with me and fed me good food and drinkies, AND did the dishes, and ran me a bath and did his best to make me feel better.

I have to learn two things: 1) Look out for #1 (That's me. Never been #1 before. It's weird.) 2) Fuck the world. (Never done that either. Will try though.)

So yeah needless to say paper-writing was not to be found this weekend, but at least I have the week after Thanksgiving. I think my gray has quadrupled. This doesn't really bother me, it's just weird to have this much gray hair already, though it kind of confuses of people and sometimes that's funny and/or useful (ie I've never been carded at a bar. I always take it out...well okay once I didn't but I've never been asked about it. The one time I was EVER carded for something was buying a copy of Lost in Translation at Wal-mart. Go figure.)

So I'm a survivor.

And let's end with some gratuitous Goo Goo Dolls lyrics: "Falling Down" from the Superstar Car Wash album:

Do you know, where you want to go?
I ain't got time for you now
Do you think, that I'll ever be?

'Cause all I ever wanted's so far gone
And if I had my chance, I'd go along

You're making me fall down,
I'm fallin' down again
I wish you could fall down,
Can you catch me darling?

Do you see, what you do to me?
You ain't got time for it now
Do you think, that I'll ever be?

'Cause all I ever wanted's so far gone
And if I had my chance, I'd go along

You're making me fall down
I'm falling down again
I wish you could fall down
Can you catch me darling?

'Cause all I ever wanted's so far gone
And if I had my chance, I'd go along

You're making me fall down
I'm falling down again
I wish you could fall down
Can you catch me darling?
