Remember ‘Bonkers’?

Holy cow I just posted 12 things1 on craigslist. All old computer stuff. Hopefully most of it gets sold, because I need to make room for Emily who is moving in on January 1st, 2007! It’s going to be so exceedingly splendid. I’m shakin’ in my cheese.2

I head to NC the night of December 23rd to begin a week of savage3 awesomeness the likes of which the world has never seen.

Yesterday I recalled one night shortly after Andrew bought his Toyota 4Runner. The four of us went out for a little drive–I don’t think we had a destination in mind. And for some reason we thought it’d be fun to do one of those Chinese fire drills4. It turns out that it was pretty fun. At one point the light changed to green while Andrew was still running around outside, so he dove into the back of his car through the tailgate. It was freaking incredible. To this day I don’t know how he didn’t smash into something HARD.

Remember Shark Bites? And if you were lucky you might get a great white? But really everybody got like 3 great whites?

3 This is a California word that I picked up. Other California words: hella, cutty, tight, droppin’ hundies, and avacado.

    Yesterday we were watching commercials and there was a commercial where people were driving a car, then got out and did the chinese fire drill. My future sister-in-law said “That’s stupid, why would anyone do that”…

    I laughed, and thought of this entry.

      Re: fire drill

      actually we call that an old jewish guy fire drill. But the important part of this drill is that you don’t care when the light turns green, nor do you care that people are honking at you.
