Last night, my friend Nancy had a sleepover at the last minute. I went to her house after rehearsal for H2$ (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying), then we went to Chilis. We always have the most fun meals at Chilis. I think it’s going to be the official restaurant of the JETS. We were all incredibly hyper and we had the most hilarious waiter with the most spectacular timing I’ve ever seen. He came to the table for the drink order at the exact moment that we started trying to scare Chungy with sexual inuendo. Then, when Erin Flynn and I decided to draw our interpretations of “Fluffy Boy” (Goku) and the rest of the steroid-hyped cast of DragonBall Z (the most idiotic anime in history, in my opinion), I put my drawing in the middle of the table so Nancy could see it (then proceed to beat me up). Then the waiter comes by and sees the drawing. I’ll try to post it here. I think I brought the napkins home. He gave us the weirdest look.
Then, we went off to rent some videos. By this time, we were in the aftermath of a torrential downpour, and cruising along some residential streets blissfully unaware that the tread in Nancy’s back tires was virtually nonexistent. When Nancy started to brake for a light, we suddenly went into a spin and flipped around nearly 180 degrees. I, for one, was screaming my lungs out, considering that I was in the passenger seat and therefore the first to die. Driver’s Ed paid off. We managed to avoid crashing into the car in front of us or play chicken for the oncoming traffic. We were all shaking when we went into Blockbuster’s.
I wanted a funny movie. Nancy, Erin, and Christine didn’t care. Chungy wanted a grotesque, terrifying, violence-ridden movie. I protested. We went home with “The Bone Collector” and a promise that we would watch one of Nancy’s funny movies afterwards. I read a bunch of Nancy’s Star Wars and X mangas, then succummed to watching Bone Collector with everybody else. Then we watched the anime of X (completely cool, even though they mostly just stood around the whole time). I fell asleep in the middle. In the morning, Nancy subjected us all to Dragonball Z (dear god no!), then Erin made her turn on Evangelion. I absolutely loved it. If I had a DVD, I would have forced her to lend it to me. Did anyone else notice that the camera kid is named Aida? How freaky is that! I kept expecting him to burst into Elton John music.
