ted: you guys wanna do another material issue song?
reuben: this song goes out to my friends: shannon, james, and laura.
ted: ESPECIALLY laura!
reuben: ted has the hots for her...
[they launch into "next big thing" by material issue]
after the set i was sitting on a bar stool, incredibly drunk [1.5 coronas!!!] looking out the window and trying to melt into the walls. ted walked up to me holding a piece of paper.
it was a set list from their show, and he'd written:
to laura: my new flame!! i need you.
****can you believe that shit??****
ted ansani is ONLY the bassist for the best band to EVER come out of chicago [as the smashing pumpkins = complete and utter shit], material issue.
this band wrote the soundtrack to my highschool life. there are no words for how much i LOVE this band. really and truly, above just about everyone else.
and i'm his new flame.
he's married with three kids. he works at a bank. i'm taller than him. and he's only teasing me ;)
i need to pause for a moment while i try to conjure up words explaining how much FUN it was...
i was born to skate, dude.
we had slushies, we had brittany spears, we had a turning glittery ball, and we had the 6 best skaters in the tri-county area.
shannon and james both really liked red [i KNEW they would] and david and john skated clumsily during couples skate. it was the best time.
we're going to make an event out of it and hopefully start going much more often.
i want jeremy to come so badly because c'mon, big gangly guy on rollerskates with arms flailing is a good laugh for everyone. and because i *adore* him.
alas, he works until 9 every night.
we really need to go ice skating before it starts getting warm.
