Mark my words!

I have been telling my friends since the first Transformers that I would find a way into the movie series. I missed my chance when they filmed at my base in Tucson at Davis-Monthan AFB and I missed out in LA. Well guess what? Here’s my chance!!!! (From a website that I will not reveal so as I have a better chance of making it into the movie as “some near 30s guy screaming like a prepubescent girl” or that “dude eating a sandwich while shit gets blown up #1” than you do.)

It was weird how quiet the house was after being filled for almost a week. There was so much activity and buzz around the house that when it all ended, it almost seemed out of place. Like the house was supposed to be alive at all times with kids playing and us talking and laughing. I think that house is supposed to be filled with people and good times. Its got a great vibe to it. Such an open canvas of space that comes from amazing architecture. It feels so much different than their old house, so much more different than many of the houses I have ever been in. After being there for a couple of days, you just got the sense that the Bennett family was happier there than any other previous place and that this new home supported the way they live their lives. I think that was part of my sadness in leaving; the fact that when I go back to my tiny 3rd story walkup in Hoboken, I am not going to have the same feeling. It doesn’t feel like home here in NJ, but nothing really has over the years since I left Hagerstown for good. Nothing feels like home until I go back to Tucson. Maybe that’s a sign.

When I first got here to Tucson on Wed, Brandon and I promptly came home to pour some adult beverages. We rolled out to the pool and just caught up on life. An hour turned into four, one drink turned into 6 and I was “toasty.” Toasty in two ways, I didnt eat as much as I should have throughout the day AND I got too much color. Little did I know that pale white guys that have been hiding from the NJ sun and hang out inside too much burn easily under this beautiful cloudless sky. Little did I know.

What makes it worse is the fact that I bought a big ass bottle of suntan lotion for Thursday, used it quite often, and got burned worse anyway. Crap!! Its only my shoulders and upper back, but it was hard to sleep. Hard to sleep when I am already having trouble putting down quality Zs. Totally worth it though to be out here. Gonna put on some Zinc, lather up real think with the lotion and wear a T shirt in the pool like a fat kid. This way I dont miss a day outside bc of my stupidity. Dumb me, red me. Drinks and great friends always get me into trouble…and I wouldnt have it any other way. Let the weekend commence!
