it’s ali and katie’s birthday week, they’re 24

ali and katie

usually im intoxicated when im with them. who knows why.

last night we were out with a group of friends to celebrate ali’s technical birthday.

today is katie’s technical birthday and last night katie and i shared an uber

in which i told her my secret plan of college domination.

katie and ali are very fun, a little too smart, and know way more about music than girls their age should.

it can be a bit unnerving sometimes so you just keep drinking and try not to figure it out.

robots? androids? shapeshifters? yes. probably. partially.

and sometimes the good lord just says lets mix some of the hippie gen with some of the rock gen

with some of this unforgivable edm gen for flavor and see what happens.

the results: good things happen.

this morning i thought someone had stolen my wallet.

it was in a bag, in the fridge, of leftovers from last night.

naturally.

thats your souvenir from hanging with these girls on their birthday.

i had SUCH a good day yesterday

yum yum donuts

it all started before donuts, which is what the army taught me.

remember that crazy line “we get more done before you eat donuts than most people do all day?”

yeah me neither. but i did have a great airport drive at 7am in hella traffic that got me $89.

as i drove back to civilization i grabbed some donuts and they were all here have 16 for the price of 12.

happy early birthday.

then i had delicious sushi with patrick j patrick for lunch.

then i was able to help someone at work and that made me feel useful, which i rarely feel

katie and ali

after work i remembered that ali had earlier in the day invited me to play the new Guitar Hero game

and see a special secret show starring the one and only Weezer

YES WEEZER

so i called my man chris and asked him if he wanted to come and he said

duh

so we drove out to the marshlands of playa and parked illegally

then took a huge mercedes party van into the party

and met up with katie, ali, and a beautiful young rock critic named Andrea who shared in my Weezer nerdom

we all drank and the waitstaff offered us tiny burgers and hor d’oeuvres and we watched the opening band from outside

i noted that the handsome guitarist of Weezer was sitting near us, alone, and i wanted to say hi

brian bell

but i was loving the convo that we were all having about rock criticism and badly behaving edm djs

then the time came to go inside to see Weezer and mama mia was it great to be soooooo close

and hear three fantastic tunes

weezer set list -1

yes three, ok! It was fun. shut up!

seriously.

so.

much.

fun!

weezer

and we were super close because it was in someones garage that fit like 55 people.

friends

afterwards we took a selfie

THANK YOU ALI FOR INVITING US ALL!!!!!
