|||||Rise Against - Rumors Of My Dmise Have Been Greatly Exaggera||]|
Well today Symbiote played our drummer's cousin's graduation party. I think we were supposed to get there around 3 or so, but we didn’t end up leaving until 4. It was in Oceanside mind you. I wanted to kind of hurry and get it over with for two reasons: one, I wasn’t into the whole playing a party thing that had maybe a few kids and a bunch of adults at it and second, I was going to go to my friend's joshes going away party. Josh is 21 and he had a keg along with other alcohol at his party so you can see why I wanted to get to it. So we get to the house and immediately we are disappointed. It’s one of those planned out little communities where all the houses are close together and no real backyard. But then we cheered up quickly when we stepped inside and they pointed us to the food, then the margaritas, then the beer and said help your self. Playing conditions could have been better and the crowd could have been better, but hey, there was free beer. So we had to set up on grass under one of those fold out canopies, and we were bunched together. Before we started playing I think I had three empty beer cans stacked up behind my amp. We played and it sounded pretty good for the conditions. And just as we were getting through our sixth or so song, the power cut out, like a fuse blew or something, but we couldn’t fix it, so we just stopped and decided to leave. This is where I start to lose track of the number of beers I’ve had. I know I would get one every time I would pass the garage while I was loading stuff up and if you think that I probably took 6 trips with just my stuff, I had a good number of beers. Also it was Ben, the guitar player’s birthday and Natasha’s parents got him a bottle of really good tequila. So of course I took two “healthy” size gulps out of the bottle. So by now I’ve had around 12 beers and I’m feeling pretty good. So we go back to say some good byes and such, of course I grab another beer or two. So then Ben, Jason, Jason’s girlfriend, David, David’s girlfriend, and I go to the Old Town Mexican Café. I was too drunk to decide what to order so I had Ben do it for me. I spent all the money I had to spend for the next two weeks, but it’s cool. I got home around 11 or so and call some people and try to go to sleep, but first the day can’t be complete without arguing with my mom. I have mostly sobered up by now, but still she asks me if I’ve been drinking and of course I say no. She says I can smell it on you (probably the tequila, I can still taste it in my mouth) so I say, ok I’ve been drinking, she rolls her eyes and lets me go to sleep. I sleep untill a little bit ago when I wake up to get some water and I start to write in this thing. I’ll probably shave so I look clean cut for breakfast with my grandpa tomorrow....or wait, later this morning, then try to go back to sleep.
Have a good one kids...
