Friends, Apes, and Bladders

इ ऍम नोट व्रितिंग इन अरबिक!  ठिस इस सो फ्रेअकिंग कोल!

If you are reading this, chances are you're one of my friends (or you might just be a creeper, in which case most of this doesn't apply to you) and you are simply amazing. I'm so glad I have had the joy of having you in my life. There are so many things about you that I just love! Whether it be something as simple as a smile or as complex as your personality, you are a marvelous person that I really do want to be around. Let's hang out sometime okay? And if I seem busy stick with it because I DO want to spend a day with you, I just have an irritating habit of not thinking out my days. 

Awkward heart-to-heart moment aside, I will explain (in too much detail I'm sure) the connection between friends, apes, and bladders.

          My day started off in the usual way with me wondering how I once again managed to end up sleeping on the living room floor. I then immediately proceeded to log onto the deathtrap of Facebook to attempt contact with one of the buddies I had been planning to spend the day with. Seeing as he wasn't on as of yet and I was incredibly hungry I proceeded to the kitchen. Some days I just don't really feel the need to eat meat. It's delicious and all... just sometimes I like to go vegetarian. Yesterday morning was one of those days. I made a monkey wrap.  
                           Spread your chosen amount of peanut butter on a tortilla and then proceed to slice a banana onto the tortilla. Space out the slices and roll! If you so desire you may take your amazingly sharp knife and slice the wrap into pieces like so!  ALSO WORKS WITH NUTELLA!!

Stuffing my face aside, I eventually hooked up with a few of my awesome man buddies and hit up the Seven Peaks Resort (it isn't a waterpark :P). The most amazing part of our time there? Probably fitting all four of us on a double tube and just drifting along the Lazy River.

After that we dispersed and I went to hang out with Shrimpy and it was a blast. But sadly he had to go to a performance for the Pearl Harbor Project, and so I hobo'ed it up in his car and slept. Soon enough we all took off to the performance and I had very sad feelings. I realized I would never again play a concert with the band. I might get invited back for Homecoming and the Alumni Concert, but it just wouldn't be the same. For now though, it's enough for me to be serenaded by the lovely music I have played so fondly.

The rain that afternoon was amazing and was the perfect finish to the music. Hop in the car, go to Shrimpy's house and then to bake a pizza of which I had the distinct joy to watch and prepare. It was pretty good if I may say so myself (and I do). 


   It is at this point that I seem to have lost track of several hours. I seem to remember running, a sense of euphoria, much laughing, and slamming my head into something incredibly hard. For some reason I also remember staring into the sky and thinking about how lucky I am.... and bananas. They're delicious.

More hanging out with friends before we watched "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" and it was an awesome party. Aside from laughing for no apparent reason we also had the amazing idea to go to 7-11 and get Double Gulps of Slurpee. First contest = Down the Slurpee as fast as possible. This resulted in large amounts of brain freeze and chills. I won (like a boss).

We then decided that the contest should be to hold your bladder the longest. Anybody to use the restroom during the movie would lose and the ultimate winner would get some indiscriminate prize. Sadly we only decided it should be through the movie so we all won. The movie itself was a blast that I totally enjoyed. If you haven't seen it, go see it. Preferably taking bananas with you. Why the bananas? Well after the movie you can hurry out to the car and do drive-bys with the bananas. 
     NO!! Do NOT throw the bananas at people as you drive by. This is illegal and more importantly, you can't eat the bananas after you're done. Instead, just point the bananas threatening at people and chant the ancient incantation: "Pew pew pew jew pew pew pew pew PEW!!"  This will hopefully befuddle people and cause the people within your car to laugh hysterically. Perhaps even like a troop of apes in the urban jungle....

                   To further insure your success, use a car with a sunroof and perform the drive-by past a large group of college students walking in the middle of the street in their pajamas and blankets. And remember, the more bananas, the more confusion and laughter. 
                      The almost best part? Waking up this morning and using those same bananas for a Nutella/Peanut Butter splice Monkey Wrap while typing up this blogpost XD
