And here we all are, back again, back to normal.
It was fun last night. I drove Oishiri to the theater so we could meet up with Sunflower, Sar, and Leah to go see Shallow Hal. It was murder trying to find parking. Anyway, we called up the other three and discovered that they were at a different theater. HA. But it was all good, the movie was sold out anyway so we went to Old Town (typical destination) and met up at Barnes and Noble. Chillaxed (there's that word again) there for quite a while. I finished the two books I bought on Friday so I got House On Mango Street to read over the remainder of the weekend. (Oh Sar? Eleven was in Woman Hollering Creek. I forgot =\)
We took a little trip to Urban Outfitters. I saw a calendar there that reminded me of a book that Stanford Guy had recommended to the SAT section leaders over lunch that one time. Worst Case Scenarios or something along those lines. I believe I shall pick it up at the bookstore next weekend. He found it hilarious. Sounds good. Anyhow, we went to get some Coffee Bean coffee afterward. Leah and I staged fake arguements to amuse the other three but that went nowhere because they were too busy not paying any attention to us. Plus Leah had to keep telling me to be quiet because I was being really loud. Well, we stayed there until we got kicked out at closing. They close at 11! =\
We went to the parking structure. I took Sar in my car and Sunflower Girl took the other two back home. Sar and I drove around aimlessly for a while. She showed me where our former band director, the Queen Ant (he's male by the way), lived =D That's around when Sunflower called the cell to tell us goodnight. We were certain to get her good and scared, telling her about people in the wall that scratch to get out and recalling the scarier parts in What Lies Beneath (which we had seen together the weekend before). She kept talking and talking and we wanted to get to her house hahah. Sar was all "Go to bed! It's already one!" So with that done Sar and I went to her house, parked across the street, and proceeded to tap and scratch at her window. After the second or third time I tapped on the glass with my nails she screamed *mahahaha* and then Sar was trying to move the screen to see in her room but then Sunflower freaked and yelled "Stop!" It was hilarious up the wahoozie. She finally pulled up the blinds and opened the window after we called her name a few times. Even though she was all pajama-ed out and ready for bed she went out with us, pj's, glasses and all.
Sunflower showed me how to get gas at Arco which I had never done before. Then we went to Jack in the Box to satisfy my fry craving and to ease Sar's hunger pangs =) Then we parked across the street from Sunflower's again to eat and chat. It was really nice. I dropped Sar off first because Sunflower didn't feel like getting up just yet. After I dropped Sunflower off I went home. It was quite late by the time I got home. Quite late and quite cold. The windows were fogging like mad.
Granted, we were missing people in our little outing (Trace, Scam, and Ape) but it was still all good. It was strange, I hadn't seen two of them since they left for school yet it was like nothing had changed...almost. I mean, Leah's hair was much longer than it was before, and I was driving (*eek*) instead of, say, Oishiri but still.
And even though we were missing people it was still good. It's strange how each person seems to add their own color to the group. I mean, add or take away one person and the whole tone of the group changes.
Suddenly, I can't wait until winter break.
