I went to Detroit this weekend. It was totally fun.
My cousins Natalie and Jerrod graduated HS, and so we had a Conti family quasi-reunion. Natalie had a graduation party. There was bar-b-q and ice cream.
In the middle of the party I decided I needed a haircut. My cousin Justin brought his clippers so he shaved my hair in the middle of a cul-de-sac. I was eating a Spiderman ice cream. 30 people watched me get the haircut. They gathered around and just laughed. They were really impressed, I guess. Justin gave me a tight shave...saved me $15. Some hair got on my Spiderman ice cream but I ate it anyway.
It was really good to see the whole family. Since they are all up north I don't see them as much as I'd like.
Traveling alone is a lot of fun, I think. I love being alone in the airport. It's just a good feeling to me.
And everytime I get on a plane I always half-way hope that we crash land on the water. I could go out on one of those floatie raft things. Take my shirt off and get a tan. Some waverunner would come by and drag me and I'd go crazy tubing. Float to a krunk island and tell exotic ladies that I'm a handsome cast-away that they should sleep with. I could easily see that being a swell time.
When we were coming back to Austin, I had to land the plane. I saw the pilot was a shithead and I knew it was up to me to land safely. You know how you are supposed to turn off all electronics or else it will interfere with the planes instruments? I turned on my CD player when we started the final descent. Fwd Track - Fwd Track - Shuffle - Pause - Bass Boom - Fwd Track - Vol Down - Vol Down - Rev Track - Stop. We landed safe, thanks to me.
Last night I was on college radio. Seegs invited me to join in a sports talk. It was a lot of fun. I'm very good at radio. I make witty comments and deep insight. Our audience was in laugh riot when I chatted. It was a lot of fun to have a microphone when you are called Mike. That makes for an automatic hilarious joke. I could easily see myself becoming a famous DJ like Jim Rome and Howard Stern.
The only problem was the fat kid who talked to much. The first hour the other 2 guys and I did a good job of combatting him and contributing to the show. Then the second hour we wore down and it was one-hour-pure-fat-kid. It was pretty gross because he told us about his birthday and his travel plans. I'm sure the 6 people listening weren't impressed. It was also gross because his jean shorts were unzipped. And he wasn't wearing underwear. I really don't want to think about that anymore. :( :((((((((
