the nexus was perfect. we had everyone we needed. more than enough. we had all the people. so many they were pouring out of the windows and piling up next to the palm trees.

but then seana showed up and we all were like
whoah, we dont have a seana.

when i was sports editor i lived in a tiny room in a huge house on 6850 del playa.
but it was my own room.
it had a sliding glass door so you wouldnt have to go through the house if you didnt wanna.
the best part of the house was the balcony because theres no oceanside dp house on that block which meant if you sat on our balcony you could look out across the street and there was the ocean and the moon and the stars
and the heavens.

i was thinking about that balcony as i skateboarded home after a long night of going to party after party with seana avec red plastic cups as we cruised isla vista.

after i dropped her off at her place i skated home drunk but not crazy drunk and thought of the amazing leak id take at home and then maybe passing out on the couch on the balcony.

leaked but chose to go to bed instead and as i was in bed that night i said man itd be great if seana decided she didnt wanna go to sleep, and instead got on her crazy ten speed and rode the four – five blocks down dp, slid open my glass door and crawled in this bed with me.

and its too bad that nothing in here is true cuz thats exactly what happened that night about five minutes after i had that thought.

and i tolder, great now i can finally get some sleep.

subway came early today

and i missed it bythatmuch

ive been trying to be good to the planet by taking the subway to work. and id do it more if it would actually come on time. they have these computer monitors in the subway that tell you what time it is and what time the next train is scheduled to be there. of course the sign said 8:45am and of course it said the next train was scheduled to be there at 8:47am but of course no one was in the station which means the train had probably come at 8:44am which meant i didnt get on the thing till 8:55 which meant i was late for work.

i need to stop talking on the phone late at night to crazy women. didnt i do this back last century? they talk and talk and i say why dont you just come over. they say its cold. i say then drive fast. they say all we will do is watch tv and pass out. i say why do you think i have a tv in the bedroom.

ive been cleaning my house lately. no idea why. ive been throwing out old clothes and getting new socks and underwear. again, for no reason. maybe im molting. something is definately wrong with me. im eating well. im walking places. im cleaning things. im not fighting when these women want to fight. im reading 3-4 chapters in the bible on sundays instead of one.

im not flossing though.

and im not dissing kroq for telling the kids that they would have the coachella lineup this morning at 7am, knowing full well that they wouldnt have any lineup, but making the kids tune in anyways. why? because maybe theyre molting too.
