Sunset @ South Beach. [Apr. 5th, 2004|01:17 am]

I ventured out today to my friend Brad's place in Venice.

Brad, Eric, and I went to South Beach to chill out around a bonfire.

It's been a while since I've really spent time on a beach . . . probably 4 years ago was the last time I went to the beach to go to the beach.

Tonight's fun consisted of chilling out with Brad and Eric's buddies, keeping warm by the fire, drinkin' a lil' beer, havin' a burger from the big bunch of In N Out burgers that someone bought for the group, and talk of films, most notably the big kick of Japanese films I just banzai-ed through this week.

Then, I had to piss. I asked Brad if he knew where the bathroom was, and he pointed to the direction of the ocean. I thought I misunderstood him, so I asked again . . . the phenomenon of pissing in the ocean. No other bathrooms.

So, being a finicky lil' bitchy-man who's afraid of people catching him holding his weenie in public, I did a sprint down the beach, away from the bonfires. There was a little pier-like area where I could pee-pee in peace.

I picked a spot just near the area where the sand was smooth from waves. I tinkled, and I was almost done when . . .

A large wave rolled on shore, larger than the others . . . as the last drops came out, the wave rolled right past me, soaking my shoes and socks and up to my ankles.

I was caught . . . with my pants down.

We chilled out for a while around the fire, and then Brad, Eric, and I drove back to Venice. We went to a geloti? stand where the kid jerkin' the counter was from Adrian, MI. He saw my Pistons hat and totally dug it, considering all he probably sees is Lakers purple and gold.

Brad found a copy of Battle Royale for me after we returned.

Eric's movie, Sacrifice, is finished with the shoot. You can see the trailer for his film here:

There's another movie by the same name, but the one that's Eric's is the one with the cool battle-woman with the sword on it.

And, as I drove home, I realized I'd lost my phone.

Fuck.

If it's not in Brad's car, then my shitty Kyocera can bite me.

Yikes!

Oh my!

Well, now I know why when I tried to call you last night and this morning I could not get ahold of you. Did you call Verizon and temporarily disconnect the phone? That would explain why I am now getting that message.

I love you and I'm sorry about the wave issue. I hope you are ok!

Re: Yikes!

It's okay my bunch!

Brad suggested I call Verizon and have them shut it off . . .

Also, I have insurance on it. The phone op informed me that they only need a police report, and they don't care if it was stolen or just lost (in my case, lost/stupidity).

After a report number, they overnight a phone to you, and there's just a 50 dollar deductible.

Sounds cheaper than what the phone was previously . . .

Doubt if they'll get me a flip-phone model.

Brad's going to look for it again when it's light out . . .

Outside of that, I had a great time.

Re: Yikes!

It definitely sounds like it was a good time!

Oh...also......

I wanted to respond to the "adverstisement" that I received in my mail today. Please put me down for an appointment on Thursday, April 29th in the evening :op

Re: Yikes!

I'm glad you appreciated the flyer.

That was subconscious creation with you in mind.

Re: Yikes!

Appreciation is an understatement :o)

Ok...so I came in today at 7:30a.m. for overtime because they asked us to. Almost no one else did, and it wasn't even needed. Oh well. At least they make it voluntary unlike OTHER places.

Re: Yikes!

These other places you speak of . . . those are memories not to be forgotten.

School of Hard Knocks.

I'll knock all them off their blocks.

Re: Yikes!

Yes I know. I have many memories of other places. Some are wonderful though, as I would never have had a more wonderful man in my life as I do now if I never worked at that other place.

Nostalgia of Bitersweet Memory.

Yes, that goes without saying, but I'll say right back at'cha.

Man, I've watched a lot of Japanese films lately.

I'm turning Japanese.
