So techincially it wasn't my hometown, but does hometown friends count? Two guy from our high school drove the 6 hour drive to come up and hang out with us this weekend. It was soo much fun. I didn't start out the night with them. Instead, I helped the roomie sell merchandise for Aaron Holt. He opened up for Doug Moreland the night that we all sold merch for them at 3rd Floor, apparently. LoL. I didn't really remember him until this ONE song. I don't know it, and I can't think of it now for the life of me, but when I heard it, it immediately became clear to me who he was. He did A LOT of cover songs, though, which isn't necessarily the best thing to do, but he was still a good singer and stuff. And the band was really good too.
That part of my night was pretty much uneventful. We just hung around the booth, and people would come up, ask stuff or buy it. LoL. Not too much more than that. However, there was this one time when the roomie went to get another beer. Two boys were walking down the steps, passed the designated area, and I was leaning on the table with the merch. One boy, so obviously drunk, and starts making coversation with me. He asks what I'm selling, and I'm like 'merchandise?'. LoL.
He wanted to specify and proceded to tell me, "Now if you tell me that you're the merchendise, then I'd say I was definately in the market." Okay, WTF? LAME! His brother or friend or someone was so obviously sober, or more so than the other one at least, and it was breath of fress air to see him step in when the dude was going way overboard. LoL.
He wanted me to sell him a CD, which are normally 15 but we lowered to 10 that night, for 5 dollars. I wouldn't budge. He made up a story that him and Aaron are buddies and that Aaron said it was okay. I told him to get Aaron down there and let him tell me to my face. Other than that, it's 10 dollars. He wouldn't give up, but I'm starting to think that it was just an excuse to stick around. He went on about supply and demand and stated that he was so obviously pointing out PHYSICS. Try Economics, bud. Lmao.
Anyway, at the end of it all, he ended up placing a 5 dollar bill in my hand and walking away. So Aaron got 5 bucks and wasn't out any merchendise. Yippie! And Yes, we gave the money to him. HaHa. I wanted to pocket it, but I thought that maybe I shouldn't. Though it could have helped out later in the night.
After the merchendise thing, I went with Tori to the Chicken so she could meet some friends that were in town as well. Then I got a call from DeAnna telling me that they were all up at Bourbon St. Bar. I was Tori's ride, but I told her I was leaving to see my friends that I haven't seen basically since graduation. That was 2 years ago. She found another ride, and I left.
When I got there, most of there were already drunk. Okay, that's a like. ALL of them were already drunk. So I had some catching up to do. Ryan gave me the rest of his beer, and bought 2 shots, one tequilia/one jeager, for me and DeAnna. I've got pics of us taking them. Pure Greatness. And then he bought me another beer. I LOVE free drinks! So let's see all I had eaten that day was a lean pocket, I believe, so buy then (yes, I know, not a lot of alcohol)I was pretty wasted. It was GREAT.
Then we all went to someone elses house. We drove down buy a lake, I guess, and just chilled on tailgates. It was quite like old times. DeAnna and Jeremy were fighting because Jeremy was pissed that Ryan, his friend, wanted DeAnna. Apparently, to him, it was all DeAnna's fault because she was a 'whore', as he liked to put it. WHATEVER. Well, I was drunk and when it comes to my friends, I'm gonna stand up for them. So needless to say, I got in Jeremy's face and told him to back off. It wasn't DeAnna's fault a BOY LIKES HER! She's a pretty girl, she's gonna get that, whether it be his friends or someone else.
He told me it was none of my buisness, blah blah blah. But when my friend is standing off, crying her eyes out because a boy made her feel like trash. Yeah, it'll become my business REALLY quick.
Well after all of that settled down as much as it was going to, we then discover that DeAnna has lost her phone. So me, DeAnna, and a girl I had just met that night, Laurie, I think, got into her truck and drove down the path while Larry and K.C., our friends from out of town, walked it with a flashlight. They got a head start so by the time we got to them, they had already found it laying on the ground. Jeremy, being a drunk dumbass, decided to ride on the hood of the truck so we were delayed with trying to make him fall off.
So anyway, in th midst of all of this, Jeremy's ride leaves him because he's too busy fucking with DeAnna. Go figure. So he doesn't want to ride with me because I pissed him off, and quite frankly, I don't want him to ride in my car. So he's like, 'I'll just walk back.'
The walk from College Station to his house is long enough, let alone the walk from the other side of CS out in the boondocks somewhere. Yeah, right. So DeAnna, Larry, K.C., and I get in my car, and we leave. I'm driving down the road. I told DeAnna I wasn't going to stop for Jeremy ... And I didn't! Lmao. He was off to side and I just passed right by him. Not too long after that, he calld DeAnna telling her that it was 'Fucked up that she didn't stop for him'. I WAS DRIVING THE CAR! It was my choice not to stop, not hers. But DeAnna kept saying that she felt bad so I turned back around to go get him.
When we got back, he wasn't there, he was hiding in the house somewhere. And DeAnna and K.C. went to go find him. They were taking forever, and I wasn't in the mood to wait so I back the car up, and have it facing the road, getting ready to leave again. Then here come, DeAnna, K.C., and Jeremy. Jeremy stops a few feet away and says that he doesn't want to ride with us. So I'm like fine, I got a ride home, it's you who doesn't. So I start leaving again, but I don't actually pull out of the driveway. DeAnna is still trying to get him in the car. So I get irritated, and I get out.
I tell Jeremy that if he's come, he needs to get into the car now. I'm offering him a ride now, but as soon as I get to my car, I'm leaving and I won't be coming. If anyone expects a ride they better be seated in my car before I get there. And Jeremy looks at me and just like, 'Okay, let's go.' Lmao. Whatever.
So we dropped him off at his house, and he's still yelling at DeAnna about stupid shit. But he gets out eventually. By this time, I had taken DeAnna to Bourbon to get her car that we left with after we left the bar. She is soooo drunk that she backs up and ALMOST hits my car. I flipped out! And then I back up, scared she's gonna do it again, and I ALMOST hit a car. It was awful.
But we got out. We got home. And we passed out at like 5 in the morning! Lmao. Craziness, I tell ya. Despite the High School BS, it was overall, a fun night. Tonight is a party at Jeremy and Travis'. A LOT of ppl will be there, I think. More fun! YaY!
