RIP Good Haircut

Yeah yeah I got my dorky haircut today, which is arguably even dorkier-looking then my Conservative Lawyer haircut I got for Mock Trial.

See, I've been trying to grow out my hair- OK that's a lie, I'm too lazy and fashion-inconsiderate to make decisions like that, it's just that the last time I
got my haircut it was snowing outside (yep, I haven't gotten a trim since June*) and everyone says it's my "[Insert very famous 60s rock star here]" look and cracks oh-so-clever jokes about finding Yoko Ono to complete the look.

I just realized I spent five whole minutes writing the above paragraph when I should have been reading Gordon S. Wood's POS for AP US. Grr. Unhappiness
<--high-school angst, remember that?

Wet Burritos
Yes, Wet Burritos, from the Beltline Bar in Michigan, are the best burritos on the planet. They are to Chipotle as Chipotle is to crappy Taco Bell burritos.

Damn local chains...

Michigan Misadventures...
Yah so apparently now I'm in Michigan visiting w/da father's side of the family. Quick notes:

-Weeeelll, driving directly into sunlight for about 5 hours is much more draining than you might imagine. Even if you're sitting in the passenger seat sun-napping like me. Also, the plaintive cry, "Are we there yet?" can't kill you, but you WILL wish it could, especially when it's your mother whining about it.

-We went blueberry picking yesterday, which apparently here is a big thing. Right now they grow in clusters and clumps, always knotted around a nuclei of sour pale red protons *berries, and coming off with a roll of the fingers and a clip of the nails, plopping into the white plastic bucket which Mexicans fill at the end of the season for $2 a barrel. Having learned that fact, the ghosts of my liberal-activist friends point angry fingers at me whenever I eat blueberry pancakes, guilting me, but not enough for me to stop enjoying the berries, especially because there's a REASON I killed my liberal-activist friends.

-Also we saw "The Island" in the afternoon, which was irritatingly unoriginal (expect BLATANT ripoffs from Blade Runner, Minority Report, The Matrix, Star Wars, etc. etc.) Also some funny quips from Steve Buscemi (his definition of God is pretty good for a summer movie) and about 10 billion irritation product-placement messages made it in the final cut. BRRR.

-Finally, this morning we went to a Korean church for the first time in about a year. Ehh. 'Nuff said.

She's BACK!

And she's GONE!

Not that that means anything to anyone.

Harry F***ing Potter...
Yah so my little brother bought the Harry Potter book last night (this morning, whatever) and now has become so engrossed in it that I finally have a chance to try Half-Life 2. I read the first hundred pages of HP6 while my brother was at drum lessons and then got all the spoilers off the Internet.

Big spoiler: I don't think "Capslock Harry" is going away anytime soon...

Another Odd Encounter...
Yesterday I met with Amy, an old friend of mine, and we hung out. She hasn't changed one bit. We almost ended up seeing a movie together but in the end decided not to and instead to go to Pizza Hutt, which here is an upscale sit-down restaurant (!!!), where they screwed up our orders. Funny story about that, actually (coming soon!)

Boy meets classmate from six years ago; both are still Potter nuts. Film at 11.

STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND

I'm in China. CHINA! WTF!?!??!?!?!?!?!??

Tianjin, China, an old haunt (I even saw Amy on Saturday, completely unchanged) and it's just hit me that I'm stuck here for two freaking weeks. Gah.

This makes no sense at all...I'm obviously hallucinating.

And I'm not supposed to be posting on my blog right now or sending incoherent messages. Gotta go and pretend to work now.
