i like burritos

Whatup duderinos-

tidings from chicago! lots of road, strangers, accents, and everthing in between. Tomorrow minneapolis and then westward ho!

im hopefully going to see dark dark dark tonight.

i miss you like peanuts miss butter (quite a bit) or like those peanuts and butter miss jelly. or maybe like those peanuts and butter miss fluff (your preference, really). Or like those peanuts and butter and fluff and/or jelly miss white bread. maybe wheat bread. maybe wheat bread with a delicious flax seed coating, which is filled with fiber. you all know what fiber does. where am i going with this?

Or does the water get him instead?

Ok, quick tidbits -

- I have a mohawk. I have gotten more than a few Travis Bickle comments, which John would be very proud of. I'm wearing aviators and fatigues as much as I can.

- John and Claire are coming here in a few hours. It's going to be a shit show, obv.

- I am officially freaking out about moving. I move in like 10 days. I haven't packed. I'm having trouble sleeping. Thank gahd for beer.

- I no longer have a mustache. For mustachioed men, these are trying times in which we live.

- We are going to Atlantic City tomorrow night. It's going to be amazing.

- If you're looking for really good reading this summer that won't take a ton of brain power, I recommend checking out Aaron Cometbus. I've read two of his books now and they are both really amazing. Many thanks to my roommate Mo for introducing me. Good travel writing about crust punks and squatting and stuff.

never have i ever thrown a cupcake and started a war

Jesus Christ! I almost started a war this weekend; a war which shall be known forever and ever as the Cupcake War.

I was at a party in JP and this drunk kid threw a cupcake. As soon as he threw it I had this cartoon image of a cupcake hitting the wall and slowly sliding down, leaving a trail of vegan frosting. So I encouraged him to throw more. Which was surely a poor life choice but nothing in comparison to what happened next. Drunk Kid threw the cupcake, not at the wall but at the angry dudes in the corner. Within, like, seconds there was a huge fight. Over a cupcake. And it was my fault. So I stood up and said that I threw the cupcake, hoping that everyone would just calm the fuck down. While my taking blame for the cupcake totally quelled the situation with the angry dudes ("Oh, it was just some Bitch"); it caused some girl to try to fight me. Like, actual aggression in your face type fighting. Over a cupcake. Never have I ever seen so many angry people in one room.
