Boredom

So . . . I'm bored. I'm very very bored. It's my first week back in the town of my youth. Good old Ontario, Oregon. Something must be said about a place that is within MALHEUR county.

Anyway, I'm stuck here without a car and you need wheels around this place. When I was in high-school, we'd all get together to drive out to Boise, ID. So basically, we'd go from a small hick town to a bigger hick town (in defense of Boise, ID, it's pretty hip now. Still doesn't solve the problem of not having a car).

I think the other thing we did was bowl. We'd bowl EVERY weekend. Trouble now is my bowling buddies all live in Portland, OR.

Still, other times a friend of mine would have the keys to one of the many Mormon centers and we'd gain access to the basketball court. That'd basically kill a few hours too.

So it seems I'm out of luck for the time being. Many of my friends are married or living elsewhere and I don't have a car. *sigh* I guess I have to write POEMS then. Hrmph.

Olivier,

I'm in SoCal right now, and it's officially my third day. I dunno what happened to the first two days. I slept, slept, slept, and ate plenty o' rice. There goes my low-carb diet. I'm just glad that it's in the high 60's; it was 13 degrees when I left NYC!!!

I'm actually hanging out with friends for the first time tonight. I think I'm ready. Boredom hasn't settled in yet, but it will, I know it.

BJR, I'm still thinking 'bout SanFran! I'm negotiating with friends!!! Will let you know.

xxooxx,
JOL
