Trippy, tired, Tired

soooo tired

i can hardly type or focus my eyes. i haven't been getting much sleep at all lately, and i can't tonight either... have to take my car in tomorrow at 11, which means waking up at like 10... in 5.5 hours. ugh.

tonight in review:
--- blythe and i made spaghetti and bread. went to fred meyer ... tons of rain ...
--- scrabble tournament (8 people... 2 boards). fun stuff. we only played 1 game because we were all so tired. i own a board now, though, so much more playing in the future. i beat kenji, amy, and anil by a ton .... amy i'll forgive because she hates it (i remember when I used to hate it so), and anil I can forgive because it was his first game ever, but kenji I'm going to give shit because he has no excuse... he'd better improve. oh yes.
--- went downtown with evan from 2:30am-now to upgrade cartman (the LJ db server) ... my god, what a pain. dell servers are extremely impressive, but nothing went well, really. it should've been easy.

on a happy note, though... today is blythe and I's 1 year "anniversary". a year ago and 4 hours ago we kissed for the first time (and then kissed a lot more), and then I ran back to my dorm room and grabbed my suitcase with eli and we got on a plan to puerto vallarta. check out my entry from last year ... that 3 hour gap was making out with blythe. :-)


Heading downtown to get my car. I'm excited... new wipers, new remote, fixing the rattles, fixing god knows what else.... I think I'll stop by a car wash place and vacuum the inside of it. Then I can tell Blythe I did it just for her, which we all know is a lie, but it'll be funny to act corny and sincere and watch her go, "ppfftt... whatever, retard." hehe.

Oh, wanna see something damn cool? I put up an LJ fund raiser today (see news) to raise $10,000 for the new servers and already have got $800. LJ users are so cool.
Trippy, tired, Tired

nap time

got my car. now I can finally sleep.... been waiting for days.

interesting things I saw today:

--- a near collision .... an accord going about 40 mph almost hit another car that pulled out from a side street without looking enough. the accord swerved into the other lane (oncoming traffic), dodging the other car by inches... the couple in the car that almost got obliterated then pulled over and sat there staring straight ahead without moving, scared shitless over what just almost happened.

--- downtown .... between the bus, the u district, and downtown, there's a ton of crazy and interesting people.

I can't think of other interesting things because I'm too tired. nap time. zzzz.

yay for FITZ!!!

Okay, this is way damn cool:

Blythe and I are coming back from Cucina Cucina and we see a car right in front of us with the license plate "FITZ". My license plate is "BFITZ". I was ecstatic... "I need to get in front of them so they can see mine!" We get into the right lane and speed up (this is amongst a bunch of cars)... we notice the guy that was previously behind me notice the car in front of him is now FITZ instead of BFITZ... he points it out to his wife. The car in front of me in the right lane moves and I speed up to get in sight of the FITZ car... his wife notices. We both pull up behind the cars in front of us at a red light and roll down our windows.

Me: "Nice license plate!"
Him: "I like your's too!"
His Wife: "His name's Bob, what's yours?"
Me: "Brad!"
Him: "I'm a Fitzgerald... what are you?"
Me: "Fitzpatrick."

We both smile, like that was the coolest damn thing we'd seen all week. (and it was, sadly.)

Him: "Well, happy St. Patrick's day!"
Me: "You too!"

And we both drive off when the light turns green.
