Last night I went over to Chris Messina's house. He was my best friend all through high school. We kicked it at his crib in Cantebury for awhile, then we went out to play some pool. I'm feeling rusty because I haven't played at all since I was laid off from SacWeb. He beat me four racks to three. After that we went to "Dover's Best Diner", an establishment which could be sued for false advertising. We were met by Tracy, Chris' cousin, who was one of my bestest friends back in the day. It's funny how little she's changed. She brought Connect Four to the diner, and the three of us had a heated tournament until nearly three in the morning. It was like being in high school again, and it was a lot of fun.
Now I'm actually at Lars' house up in Newark. I used to live with Lars and Kira just two doors down from where they live now. We went to a Tex-Mex cafe for dinner and had some laughs. Now we're going to kick it here for awhile, and they have a spare bedroom that I can crash in if I don't feel like driving the fifty miles back to my Dad's house tonight.
Dad is off work tomorrow, and I told him I wanted to hang out with him and do something, so even if I do stay here, I'll be heading back down after breakfast.
I miss Julie a lot. I called her this afternoon and she sounded sad. I'm sure her disposition will change once I'm back in town. Besides that, she's going to see Courtney tomorrow and that'll keep her from being lonely and cooped up in the house.
