Slipping Beauty

–she looked up at me over her falafel and told me about her plans for spain. lots of lit­er­a­ture it sounds like, and a film class that counts for lit­er­a­ture. i wish i could read her. it is so easy spend­ing time idly catch­ing up and its true, as she says, that when we are around each oth­er there re­al­ly isn’t a need for do­ing so.

she’d nev­er been to Elia’s which sur­prised me. its is awe­some mediter­ranean food. i was pret­ty sure she was a veg­e­tar­i­an, and Elia’s has a great se­lec­tion of said cuisine. per­son­al­ly, as an om­ni­vore, i went with the kaf­ta.

some­one told me that she had bro­ken up with her boyfriend. i didn’t bring it up. i like her, but as things work out, my last se­mes­ter here she will be in Toledo. Where is the point in try­ing to see if she is in­ter­est­ed? I still re­mem­ber work­ing with her at the Huddlemart and crush­ing on her qui­et in­ter­est.

the same some­one who told me al­so heard from the same per­son that told the some­one who told me that she likes me alot. if of course i am the Adam that lives in Keough and is on the fenc­ing team. (i’m 87% sure that it is me).

she just turned 21, 2 days be­fore my 22nd. she seemed to have had an en­joy­able birth­day. and last night she had a wine and cheese par­ty which i was in­vit­ed to, but did not go to be­cause i had a bad hot­dog be­fore the game and was slight­ly nau­se­aous.

so is this beau­ty slip­ping away? is this an­oth­er end­ing? i don’t think i want it to be

Elia’s

Monday, 8 April 2002

Last night was fun. I ate at this place called Elia’s. Really good Lebanese food. Then af­ter that, I spent sev­er­al hours (ok it was till 3am) play­ing Super Mario 3 on the Nintendo over at my friend Cari’s place. Andy was there too and he tried to give me some ad­vice on how to get wom­en. I think he said some­thing along the lines of “They just have to be con­vinced that they want you in their pants, but you can’t just tell them that.” Thanks Andy. Super Mario 3 is such an awe­some game. We got all three Hammer Bros. suits and Tanuki suits out the ass. I even im­pressed them with my crazy jump­ing abil­i­ties. I’m do­ing shit­loads of laun­dry to­day and I got a let­ter from Mom with 25 bucka­roos in it. She is good to me. I don’t re­al­ly know what I am go­ing to do this week­end al­though I should try to get ahead on some of my work. I prob­a­bly won’t though
