i've been wanting to tell you about carla time, but lately it seems like i've had a lot of ideas for blog posts and not enough days! first, let me start by saying that no time with carla is enough time because she's just that rad. and if i could pull a star trek move and teleport to las vegas, i would do it often. VERY often. our first day started out with a little pho, and all i can say is, i'm glad the storm knocked the power out so that only carla could see how big of an idiot i am with chopsticks! we did some blog talking, some space talking, some speed shopping, some hanging out with the most awesome mini carlas, and good old-fashioned bonding.
you probably can't tell, but in the second picture, there's an eye to the left of the blue streak; that's carla's. and there's another eye to the right of the red streak; that's mine. that's what happens when you have the camera on the wrong setting and try taking a picture in a very dark club. that night was amazing. we went to see darwin deez at the black cat club, and i think we could have stayed all night long just listening to his music and dancing. when we left the show we walked a few doors down to bar pilar where carla romanced me with a tall glass of "flying doggy style pale ale." funny name, great beer. i haven't told you before, but my driver's license photo looks more like a gangsta mugshot than law-abiding (for the most part) citizen. carla first saw it when we were going into the show, but then when i had to show my ID to get my draft, the guy asked me if i was looking for a job, and said that he could use a mean face like that for a bouncer! i swear, it's terrible! and that face below, that looks cherubic compared to the driver's license picture.
if you're friends with carla and i on facebook, be on the lookout for our little photo series. it's like if planking actually got funny, then smoked crack while high on giggle juice. it's gonna be good, and it's even better to have a friend you can do these sorts of random and hilarious (to people with a very broad sense of humor) things with! now is where i get all emotional and serious... i think the best thing to come from blogging is my friendship with carla. i know the cosmos work the way they're supposed to because there's no way she and i could have continued leading separate lives and not become friends!
