24 hours in Charlotte

for the past week i've been in the carolinas... mostly charleston, sc but on sat night/sunday me and kristen made the 3 hour trek back to charlotte so she could work on a commercial sunday. she had a call time of 5am so i asked my friend meghan if i could crash on her couch since i was carless.

these are the events that took place.

for dinner me and kristen ate at the greek isles... we had some of the best.hummus.ever

kristen then dropped me off at meghan's where they had a chimney fire going... which was quite nice. after a while the place was starting to stink like fumes from the $1.99 log they had bought. so we decided to dump some water on it and OF COURSE the smoke would rise out the chimney stack.

boy were we wrong...

at first it was rising, then it started come into the apartment. then they thought lets try to blow it back up the stack... no go yo.

finally kelly had the bright idea of getting hot pads and putting the log on a cookie sheet and bringing it out to the deck. needless to say she dropped it and hot ash went all over the wooden deck. we then hurried to various faucets to put out the fire.

here's the log the morning after.

no fires were started, thankfully.

the next day.

after getting back from going to a fantastic tea shop. i went in to the other room where i then hear a shrek of terror. what has happened you ask? meghan is standing in the kitchen motionless while her beta fish formally known as johnny sox is lying on the counter.

he jumped from his bowl. why? not exactly sure. but i had the idea to put some water on him so meghan could scoop him up with a big spoon and put him back into his respective bowl.

meghan questioned, "why the fish formally known as johnny sox... why did you try to kill yourself?"

he is still is alive... as far as i know.

Aw man. I am not really sure if you and I have ever met but I want to buy this old cigarette vending machine in SC but I don't know how to get it here. I wish you and I were best friends and we could have worked something out. C'est la vie.
