Out And About

I had nothing else to do today, so I went to the mall to use up some gift cards that I still had from last Christmas. I stopped over at Barnes And Noble to check put their selection, and to my surprise, they actually had some stuff that I'd been looking for...so I purchased the following:

Friedrich Nietzsche's "Human All Too Human" and "Twilight Of The Idols"
Monty Python's "The Life Of Brian"
David Lynch's "Lost Highway"

So now I own all the Monty Python movies, most of Nietzsche's writings (certainly his most important ones), and most of the David Lynch films I want (still need to get ahold of "Inland Empire" and "Eraserhead" at the very least).

Lost Highway, from what I've read, is freaky enough that it will likely keep me up all night, so I'll have to wait until I'm in the proper mood for it (and don't need to worry about getting enough sleep for work).

Later on, I went to the karaoke bar I had mentioned previously, mainly to check things out. I ended up having a pretty good meal and two draft beers at the bar area while listening to the patrons sing (surprisingly not bad). But while the food and drink were good, there were a few negatives that will likely prevent me from making a repeat appearance:

(1) Not a bathroom in sight. Kind of hard to have a long night of karaoke when you can't take a leak between songs!

(2) No songbook in sight. Both of the bars I frequented in South Carolina had books of the available karaoke songs laying around for people to peruse. This place had none. How the hell am I supposed to know what songs I can sing, then? I'm not going to just hover by the MC and ask them to search for every borderline hit song that I think might be there but might not be...

(3) That one chick wasn't there. Part of the appeal of going to this particular bar was the chance to get up and perform in front of the bitch that stood me up, rock the house, and be like "Yeah, bitch, you could have had this, but now, FUCK YOU." Even in spite of the first two problems I mentioned, I would have still found a way to do my thing if she'd been there...but instead, all I had was a crowd of 50- to 60-somethings. Not really what I was after. If I can't count on her being there on karaoke night, then there's nothing left to motivate me to put up with the other drawbacks this place has.

So, I'll have to move on. I know of at least one other karaoke place in town, so I'll maybe hit that up next weekend. Hopefully, it'll be more in line with what I expect from these sorts of establishments.

Shag? Are you British? Or are you asking if he danced?

How do you think Rey dances? :P Do you think he has any wiggle room in those conservative khakis he must wear?

I don't really remember what I did after that. I *did* go back to my old karaoke haunt a few times and discovered that I can do a very good Dave Gahan impression (so Depeche Mode covers are now my bread and butter).

Had a friend-with-benefits for about two weeks in August who flaked on me for no particular reason. But by a stroke of luck, I replaced her with a new one a couple weeks later and am still seeing her 2+ months later. As things are going quite well, I expect I'll be staying with her until I go to officer school sometime next year and leave this town for good.

As for my dancing...I had one drunken night in September, doing a pub crawl with some work buddies, where we ended up in some dark-lit club blaring urban music for a crowd of mostly early-20s black folks. On a dare, I strutted my wobbly arse onto the floor and started working my groove, and eventually had at least two girls with giant booties grinding on me, whether by luck or by sheer pity for me.

According to my friends (who apparently were laughing wildly the entire time), I resembled a crackhead having an epileptic seizure.

Tony hasn't been here in ages. I only keep popping in here occasionally to see if there's any development's in KillHannah's America Trip thread, but that seems to have died.

But seeing as this is *my* journal, and not some derelict building wall to be whizzed upon, I guess I can provide an update...

I am currently so busy that I don't even have time for video games anymore. My military contract expires next February, and I am decidedly NOT re-enlisting, so I am scrambling around trying to put out job applications and get myself transferred over to the National Guard. There is a lot of paperwork involved, and a lot of waiting for other people to do stuff for me, and it is highly frustrating. But I should have enough time to ensure gainful employment by the time I leave active service.

On top of that, I am still ridiculously busy with my responsibilities at work.

Glancing back at my last life update, I see I mentioned that I tried for officer school. That didn't work out, so I am quite pissed off at the Air Force. Part of why I won't even consider re-enlisting. I am also still seeing my aforementioned friend-with-benefits, 7.5 months later, because the natural stopping point of OTS never came to be. She's a nice woman, and I've enjoyed my time with her, but I think we're reaching the point where I'm going to have to end things soon. Maybe next month. I've got my mojo back, and it's time for me to find a woman who's wife material.
