12/17/2002 Archived Entry: "More Than I Can Pear"
My parents gave me a pear. It was a wonderfully juicy D'Anjou pear. I admired it while at their house last night and they told me that I could take it. Excellent, I thought. I will bring that into work for lunch tomorrow. After my sandwich I reached into my brown lunch bag and released the autumn fruit from its paper prison. As I bit into the pear juice ran from it and coated my computer keyboard in a natural fructose syrup. It was so delicious! Almost TOO delicious for in my glee the half-eaten pear squirted free of my grip and hit the floor. Without any time to react or think I simply blurted out a "Fuck!" instinctively. Then I felt silly because my office was completely quiet. Then I remembered that you can just wash a pear because it's only fruit.
Boy, these blog entries just keep on losing quality as time marches on.
New York was a lot of fun this weekend. We didn't end up going to the Met as planned but we did hang out up and down West 34th street, watch Christmas movies, have the world's best coffee and go to Caolan's lovely Christmas party where she made a wonderful looking egg nog in a giant ornate brass serving goblet. I didn't want to say anything but the only reason I didn't have any is because it looked exactly like the first goblet in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Momma didn't raise no fool. I was prepared to watch the partygoers as their faces began to turn to skeletons and then explode!
Jen's roommate, Pixy, showed us videos of her comedy troupe, Jimmy's Traveling All-Stars. They were hilarious! Their website seems to be down right now but I wish there was some other way I could tell you to go check them out and love them but apparently at the moment there is not. I wish I could be in a comedy troupe! Unfortunately my lack of knowledge of the medium coupled with my nonexistent effort to try to break into it have been holding me back for some time now.
Everyone keeps asking me "How was New York?" and I say "It was great. I had a great time!" Then they say: "Did you go to Rockerfeller Center and see the Christmas tree and go skating?" To which I reply: "Shit."
Oh well. There will always be next year.

Hey, that's what I wanted to do (the skating and stuff). I was about to complain that it was everyone else's fault that we didn't go ice skating on Friday night, when I wanted to, but then I realized that it was raining horrible bitter-cold rain on Friday night, and that drinking cocoa and talking about "White Christmas" was the best we could possibly have done.

Yeah that's true. But there wer probably other opportunities. Oh well, we'll get 'em next time, right kiddo?

My class is going to New York tomorrow, and I am going to the DMV. Who gets the better deal? Me. Here's why:
# of times I have thrown up in the DMV: 0

Are you getting your license? You threw up in NY? Do you believe in love at first sight?
Posted by Chefelf @ 12/18/2002 05:19 PM EST
Getting my permit. I still have to learn to drive. I threw up on the way to NY, on the bus, the first time I went to visit Caolan. No, I don't believe in love at first sight, except incidentally, like you've been communicating with the person for seven months on the Internet, and the first time you see them and when you realize you love them happens to be the same time.

The rink in rockafellar is overrated. It looks bigger on TV. Although at the time I didn't have someone to go make a fool of my sel... err skate with. Oh well.

Oh how sad.
I can teach you how to drive, Laura, if for no other reason than actually having someone else in that friggin' group that can run out and do things.

You know what? Steve is such a great name. I'm serious. Say it out loud to yourself. Steeve. You have to include the extra 'e' or it just doesn't have the same ring to it. Steeve. *hehehe*
