absolutely no problem with spock's fur. and his arms, and the trail of dark hair along his stomach... woah.
on a more irl note, i went out to dinner with tara and talia and ryan at talia's work place. the waiter was great, with a new york accent, and i love when he says pepper. i think that may be a kink of mine: great service. but anyway, we had garlic fries as an appetizer, and i had pesto penne with peppers (hee!), arugula, some hard cheese, and what i think were potatoes. it was delicious. and for desert, tara and i shared a creme brulee (my choice) and a pudding with cereal and ice cream underneath, and fruit and whipped cream around. i also had coffee with desert. everything was lovely; i think eating out is one of my favorite activities, especially when the food, service and company is pleasurable.
when i got to the restaurant, no one was there, so i waited in the waiting area, and the hostess talked to me. i actually had a conversation with a stranger! i told non that i have gotten better at idle conversation with costumers, so this skill seems to have carried over into my casual life.
talia and tara are having grad parties on the 9th and 12th. yay!
kari had her grad party, and apparently her bf did not show up until 15 minutes after it was finished, and even then, he wasn't dressed well. i guess i should not expect anything different from whomever kari chooses to date. it is too bad though; i still have the decency to sympathize.
kari has also gotten a job where her mother works and is making $13 an hour. almost double what tara and i make, and a fair amount over what talia makes. i can't believe it. i get the feeling she doesn't deserve it, but i have to wonder if i am just being selfish. then again, i wish something like that would happen to one of us.
kari couldn't make it to dinner because she didn't have a ride, and neither tara nor i would give her one. thing is, when she wants to see her bf, even if she doesn't really know him, she will make the excuse she is seeing us and then take the bus to see him. but when it comes to us her friends, she has used up her excuses and wouldn't take the bus anyway, not for us. i feel so used. i used to give her a ride all the time, but when i can't now, i don't feel bad. all three of us have stopped feeling bad, because enough is enough. we won't deal with her self-made drama anymore.
when this started, we didn't say anything: awkward subject. but we did start talking, and we all felt exactly the same way. tara, though, will be stuck on the island with her when talia and i are gone. at least for a year; after that, i hope she can get out of here. i HOPE she moves to cali and i can see her... we made plans to go to las vegas over winter break when we are all 21. and we will all go to tokyo disney when we visit talia. god i'm going to miss them.
i watched the episode patterns of force today, and let me say ORGASMIC. uhh.. yes. i mean, jim with that hat, spock without a shirt (who would have thought his chest looked like that under the uniform?!?) and their close contact in the jail cell half naked (without shirts.) jesus. it does not get much better than that. weird thing is, i've always thought i preferred a smooth, hairless chest, but i had
