so much to report [Sep. 24th, 2000|07:41 pm]

made a fancy dinner: top ramen with the liquid drained, with fried chicken strips mixed in, wrapped in a tortilla, with taco sauce. you get creative when you don't have much food around. scott made a peanut butter sandwich. i think i win.

went to the park with mike: played with the chains. got more blisters. a girl running by saw us and came to talk ... she took the chains and did all this fancy stuff. she knows a bunch of the same people that were at golden gardens on friday.

came back, went running with eli -- first to the near tennis courts, then through the forest to the far tennis courts were we played 7 games.... it was damn close. it came down to 40-30 eli in the last game, and he won.

back now, and sweaty. shower them, then a "house meeting" later. i wrote a CGI script on our house website that keeps tracks of communal expenses and calculates how much we all owe each other back. so if dana goes and buys toilet paper and dish soap, and I pay the utility bills, everybody else is told how much to pay dana and I. pretty slick.

Re: fire starter

It isn't so much THROWING fire as it is SPINNING fire. It's done with chains that're attached to your wrists.

try this "recipe"

Make a batch of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese... add oregano, garlic salt, and black pepper. Ends up almost like real food!

wicks go at the end of the chains, you light them on fire (when you're good), and spin them all around you.

i'm not good yet.

sound like alot of fun.
the only stuntly thing i've done in awhile
was (besides taking spill son my bike) to
hope up on a large truck-tire and walk around
on it. 35.5 inches is a good size to try out
on, it's actually alot of fun. you can walk
foreward, backward, or kick the rim to turn
it. thing is, good tires like that cost $150
and my friend wasn't extremely cool with me
walking around on his brand new tires.
