integer vitae

a personal journal.




Back in the mix at work, so am pretty busy. Let's see. I officially decided that I want nothing to do with "e.e.". She is immature and manipulative, and I have no interest in spending any more time with her. However, I am growing quite fond of "Alexa" and we have been spending a lot of time together. I think "M." was disappointed to see us together last night, but it can't be helped. "M." is a nice girl, but I'm not interested in her.

Last night was a good time. A lot of people showed up (mostly via proxy invites). I think my friend R. may have hooked up, which is good for him. Now I'm hungover and sitting in bed. Probably going to chill today. Read the paper. Finish some books. Watch a movie or something.



back to work

Back to work this week and trying to get into the swing of things. I've been pretty distracted lately. I need to get my shit together and plan out a schedule for the next 9 months. I think I'm in good shape with the project, but I can't rest on my laurels. I am also aggressively pursing the job hunt for next year. I am taking a shotgun approach, which incidentally has been working well in other aspects of my life.




I went to the beach yesterday with "Alexa" and her dog. It was very
nice. I think I need to make a move on her soon.


ota benga

Ota Benga was an Congolese pygmy. He had been forced into slavery by a group of Belgian-hired mercenaries. An American bought him and 8 others from a tribal slave trader. They were displayed at the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904. He was then moved to the Bronx Zoo and put on display in the monkey house. In 1916, Ota shot himself in the heart with a revolver.


Is this a do or a don't? The hipster irony has wrapped in upon itself like a Klein bottle, so I don't even fucking know anymore.



The Japanese sex industry accounts for roughly 1% of its GNP, which is more than they spend on national defense. The Japanese national pastime is molesting girls on subways.



Had another date with "Alexa" last night. Just went to a movie. I was impressed that she suggested sneaking in beer to drink. Also found out that she has lived overseas and traveled extensively. I think there's more to her personality than she lets on. I got more physical vibes from her than on Saturday. I also met her dog, who was real skittish and scared in that clumsy big-dog way. I'd like to see them both again.




I went to "e.e.'s" place on Friday. We fucked in her old apartment. It was rushed because she had to run to the store before midnight, which killed the mood for me. Then we passed out on the couch in her new place. I woke up in the middle of the night with my head bent back at a 170 degree angle, so went into her new room and slept on the bare matress.

I opened the window for some fresh air. There was an AC unit in the window, but I didn't want to turn it on. As soon as I opened the window, the AC plummeted to the alley below, waking up all the neighbors. I speculate that the air conditioner was depressed and had been contemplating suicide for quite a while, and defenestrated itself In the tradition of Modigliani's wife. It will be greatly missed. (Actually, I went and bought a much better replacement for e.e. for $25 the next day.)

Last night I went on a first date with "Alexa". It went alright. Had the typical first date awkwardness. I realize she's a much nicer, clean-cut person than I expected. Unfortunately, most of my sense of humor is based on depravity, sarcasm, or dead-panned absurdity. She didn't seem to find me that funny, but maybe was just nervous. We had a nice talk on the roof before making it an early evening. I think I'd like to see her again just to see where things go.

Tonight I'm meeting up with "Malory" to see her friend's band play at a lounge. I think she's quite in to me, but I don't feel the same way in return. I'm not sure whether to keep it on the friendship tip or to try to get down with her. It's the classic brain versus dick battle that has been waged throughout the ages. It's like a pro wrestling match. You know exactly who is going to win, but pretend like it's a real fight.




Back at home. Moved into my new place yesterday. It was a pain in the ass, because the movers were 8 hours late. I spent most of the day with my thumb up my proverbial ass. The movers also broke a glass end table and dinged up some furniture, but what do you expect going with the low bidder. I'm glad I didn't try to do it myself, because it took them four hours to move my stuff.

Now I'm just trying to get a bunch of loose ends tied up and get back into the swing of things. Going to meet up with a couple girls this weekend, other than that, no plans.



family outing

My folks came out to meet up with my sister and I while I'm away on "business". Our trip focuses entirely on us drinking like its a national security issue. It's 5:30 pm and everyone is passed out. My friends are driving up to join us for dinner and more libations. It'll be a hell of a time. "Melody" is joining us for dinner as well. It will be interesting to see how she gets along with my folks. I think she can tone down the bipolarity when necessary.
