From the Virtual Sidelines of Life, A Postcard. [Aug. 22nd, 2004|02:00 am]
Sauce1977


Heidi mentioned that there was some concern of my possible demise.

At 1:03 AM on August 22nd, 2004, Chris Sauce1977 was found, sitting on the couch.

His head was spaced out, a veteran burnout of the video game couch jockey wars.

Living on a placebo of McDonald's and SPAM, he reared his sloppy head and gurgled a moan.

The time to update struck . . . now.

Hey everybody, I am fine.

During the time since I last posted, I rested my bum knee, found a couple video games to occupy time. Then, my knee healed, and I flew to Detroit, and then I returned to Los Angeles. Also, I sat around a lot, and a few other things happened.

During my time in Detroit, my mother turned older by one year. She also didn't know that I was to be there, and the look on her face when I walked in the door . . . it took her two seconds to realize who was standing in front of her, the "other part of the gift" that my cousin had "forgot" in the car. My mother felt quite happy, surprised, and pleased that I came to visit.

The first evening in Detroit, Heidi and I went to DTE Energy Music Theatre/Pine Knob. We watched the Barenaked Ladies.

Barenaked Ticket.


I've attended a previous BNL concert at DTE/Pine, and this one was better because the weather was much warmer. It was probably around 60-65 degrees this time. The first/last time I went to see them, it was probably below 50 F, and it was raining. Apparently, I was lucky, as 5 days do not pass in MI this year without a bit to a bushel of rain.

BNL's musical arsenal may or may not be your particular taste, but the real payoff of BNL live isn't the music but the personal interaction. What BNL does in-between pop hits happens to be quite amusing. Alanis was there, but I was neutral on her as I was BNL . . . however, they both entertained, and she came out during one of the BNL songs in redneck flannel, stripping out of it to reveal herself in a fat man suit, with plenty of man-hair, with a thong. The thong had the rhinestoned name "Steve" on it. Everyone chuckled. Women in fat man suits . . . good for at least a smirk.

Note to lesbians . . . they're rare to be found, but they're probably even rarer to be seen in MI. However, there were a couple of old lesbians having fun at the show, and they loved Alanis, and they sang to all her songs, and they danced . . . and it didn't bother me because many weird things do not bother me, but note to yourself . . . if you're a lesbian, it's difficult to blend into the Mitten.

To my cousin Michelle, thank you for arrangements for the concert. Thank you also for your persistence with the sales pitch for the surprise trip. I enjoyed hanging out with everyone for the very short time.

By the way, the part about living on McDonald's and SPAM . . . the SPAM part was an embellishment. Also, I forgot to mention that I mixed that with other fast food such as one Panda Express trip. Also, I did some healthy eating. Tofu and turkey sandwiches worked into my diet.

Note on McDonald's meals . . . my heart races after I down their food. I can guess, since I haven't had it for so long until recently . . . the salt and fat content, mixed with possible sugar?!? of the McDonald's double cheeseburger ingredients . . . that is what's doing it. I swear there's some sugar in there . . . added for tasty purposes. I can definitely taste the salt, especially on the fries, but it's also in the burger. My bet . . . the food was first processed and packaged in 1993. My other bet . . . if the USA went into crisis mode, and food was scarce, McDonald's would be able to assist with a supply that would probably last about 4 years, stockpiled in silos across the country. Also, maybe it wasn't a good idea to eat 4 double cheeseburgers and have two super-sized fries. Also, of dubious note, I watched Super Size Me a while back, but my health didn't matter when I found out I could buy their double cheeseburgers for 1 dollar.

I had missed Heidi, but the waterworks didn't turn on for me this time when I left. She will visit in October. Also, I had a chance to see my good friend Jason, and that was lots of fun. I showed him Battle Royale. He liked it. I knew he would.

* * * * * *


Part of the reason why I couldn't post had to do with some attempt to contain my surprise trip . . . I would have talked about it. In fact, given the number of people who knew and collaborated in my surprise trip gift visit for my mother, I'm surprised that she didn't discover the secret. I even unplugged the phones for a week because she was calling, and she was kinda sad that I wasn't going to be around, she thought, for her birthday.

* * * * * *


I watched Collateral . . . twice. The first time I paid for the ticket, and the second time, well, somehow after Napoleon Dynamite, I found myself in a theatre for Collateral. Shhh . . . wait, I just . . . sorry, Manny Perry. It's not a habit.

* * * * * *


I'd talk more about my flight with United, but I have some work to do in correspondence. In sum, taking a cheaper flight with United Airlines proved a bad idea. Thankfully, they take care of their pilots. We never crashed. More to come on this.

* * * * * *


Also, I am working on trying to be employed, although that goes slowly.

The Chris Beast typed his last few words sometime near 2 AM.

He realized that he didn't have any food for tomorrow or the next couple days, so he posted and went to the market for foodstuffs.

Oozing from his computer seat, he walked to the door . . . the thing they call . . . Chris.

I was starting to wonder about your whereabouts myself. Death was considered as an outside possibility, with much higher contenders for "sick to fucking death of livejournal", or "livin' la vida loca."

I'm never really sick of LJ. Some people are fickle with the interest in the online-posting, but it's been a featured part of my life for quite a few years for me.

If it wasn't LJ, I was posting on EA Sports with regard to their football games. I was going online to IRC to chat. I've done this with frequency since I was about 18 years of age, the very first year of college, right during the explosion of the internet.

As for "La Vida Loca," it doesn't get more loca than Los Angeles.
