To make a long and drawn out story not so long and drawn out, I shall give you this:
Yesterday around 2:30pm, Peter, Perky and I drove just across the bridge to Wawa and met Jen. From there, we got in Jen's car and drove to Frostburg University for the rock show. Okay, this is like a 5 hour ride...we get to the show and rock out. Of course a mosh pit broke out, and I, along with one other brave female with dangly lightening-bolt earrings, decided to jump in with the big boys. We kicked, we punched, we pushed, and made faces and were just as tough as we could be, but they wouldn't really push us back!!! It was a downer, but we had fun!
Something, I guess it was my conscience, told me that I should not go to the show...well, i guess this is why:
Peter, Perky and I were all three under the impression that Jen was going to drive 5 hours back to Salisbury right after the show, 1. because Perky had an 8am Ultimate Frisbee tournament the next morning, 2. because my mother re-scheduled her angioplasty to visit me today... All of the sudden at the show Perky turns to me and tells me that Jen just said that she didn't know what she was going to be doing after the show, she might just stay in Frostburg to go to the hotel afterparty. Then, cutting out some parts, Jen says she is going back to Salisbury, but after we hang out at the party for a while. And, remember I nominated this weekend to be a sober weekend for me... I get to this hotel party and just walk around in the hallways, calling my boyfriend who's phone is either off or out of service... 3:30am rolls around and Jen is in the party room, Peter is somewhere, Perky and I are sitting down in the hallway, sober, and wanting to go home like 2 hours ago... Peter comes out of nowhere and was like "I have been looking for you two...are you ready to leave yet?"
"Yes," we replied. Jen comes out of the room, a little tipsy...Perky begins the drive home. Soooooo tired!!! Then we finally get back to campus this morning, just around 8am. Perky goes to his frisbee tournament, crazy. Peter goes to his building, I go to mine, turn the heat up on full blast and fall asleep in my roommates bed. I wake up this morning afternoon around 12:30/1. Make coffee, and read for hours. I did not make it to the commons today, it was just a day of reading really. And, my mom got sick yesterday, so she couldn't make it to Salisbury today anyway, whoo!
And then, this was tonight:
6:30 rolls around. Peter picks up Jessica and I from our dorm hall (Chester) and then picks up Jackie and Jordan from their rooms (In U.P.!) We are on our way to Peter's house in Pokomoke for a bonfire that his family is having. For some reason, Peter decides to show us a real haunted house... um. this house is down a long driveway that is bordered by old corn fields... mind you--the past few days have been icky with rain and snow... We get to this creepy old white house at the end of this driveway and Peter is like, "Lets go inside" and we are kind of hesitant, but us 4 girls get out of the car with him. "Oh wait, I don't have a flashlight," said Peter... "I'll get one from my house and we'll go in on the way back to school." He went to turn around and leave, but doesn't think that he is going to get stuck in the muddy fields, and well... he gets stuck... for what seemed like 20 minutes, Jordan, Jessica, Jackie and I push the car while Peter is trying to make it go oin reverse... It doesnt budge... not even when we put branches under the tires, not even when we put some old flattened jug under the tires, not even when we put an old wool blazer under the tires to create traction... not even when we were splattered with mud. He calls his dad and Dr.Staubbs came and towed the wagon out of the mushy mud with his friends pick up truck... SUCCESS. Smores, apple cider, baked beans, a bon fire and some fun. We leave the bonfire, in the middle of the woods, where Peter's house is... And we are on our way back to Jackie's apartment. Guess what, I watched part of the movie Dick, with Kirsten Dunst and the girl that played Jen from Dawson's Creek... and stayed sober. Peter dropped me off back at Chester, and then picked up his other friend and went back to Jackie's. And, that was tonight!!!
