youd think after all these years shed stop being shocked or disgusted with my life, my alleged life as documented here, or the things that i say on the phone. but no. still easily amazed.
Are you home? Did you enjoy yourself?
I realized i didnt call my mom immediately after deplaning. And I hadnt updated the busblog first thing in the morn. so she was worried. awww.
i had a great time!
i had 190 emails waiting for me to answer. but mom wanted to tell me a few more things.
Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself.
I read your blog a couple of days. I hope nothing in it is true else I will be very disappointed.
lets see, what could she be disappointed about? the sex the drugs the drinking the young women the car chases the international counterterrorism the lack of photos regarding flowers and art museums?
the part about buying weed from the hells angels is true
but you shouldnt be disappointed because it was at an excellent price.
she called me as she was driving home from work. i didnt take notes but i believe she was concerned that i would be mistaken for a gigolo, she didn’t like the fact that in every picture i was holding a beer, and she really didnt like the fact that i was holding a beer while walking through a canadian park.
strangely the weed buying from the angel of hell didnt make her chuckle like it does for me, now, as i fondly reminisce. ha.
i explained to her that when Isla Vista is in the house, IV has to represent. has to. let all those other poseurs talk a good game about drinking and smoking and doing their thing – and watch them crumble when a pitcher is placed infront of them. and watch them fall when the lights get switched off in the hotel room and its just you against the world.
life is a series of yesses and no’s, the job of a good blogger is to paint a beautiful world and then watch as it comes true.
which creates more ouis.
the only people who should feel uncomfortable about this is the blogger’s mom and probably the parents of the young ladies swapping miniskirts.
the life of a blogger can be dull and palatable for parents
or it can be something worth documenting.
because i know that my mom will love me no matter what she reads on here i swear to you that i will continue to drink drug blog and sex you all under the table. and this trip totally recharged my batteries and i cant wait to get back to writing on here twice a day every day.
for example today i was looking for prom pictures for something im doing for LAist and i found this site that called me a douchebag. classic!
