My brother got married real good today. My other brother and I split best man duties. Wedding & reception lasted a little more than 8 hours in total. Still, it felt shorter than some of the 2 hour receptions I’ve been to.

I was in a really awful mood yesterday, and I kept thinking to myself

"I wanna get in a fight
I just want someone to kick the crap out of me
I want to get into backyard wrestling”

Which is either a warning sign, or the bridge to an Andrew Jackson Jihad song, but I’m not sure which.

My mom is watching a racist newscast about Ferguson, and I’m trapped listening to it in this stupid hotel room. It’s giving me a stomachache.

I finished reading Catcher in the Rye, last week. It kept reminding me of Rory’s story line in the penultimate episode of the second season of Gilmore GIrls, ‘Lorelai’s Graduation Day.’ It’s no real coincidence, in fact, Rori’s storyline is a clear homage to Salinger’s novel.
In the Gilmore Girl’s episode, Rory, on a whim, skips school in order to bus into New York. Once there, she meets up with Jess. While there, she picks up a record for Lorelai, The Go-Go’s debut album ‘Beauty and the Beat’ signed by Belinda Carlisle*. Rori plans on giving it to her mother at Lorelai’s graduation, which happens to be tonight. However, Rori accidentally is delayed coming home, leaves the gift on the bus, and misses her mother’s much awaited graduation. Both Rori and Lorelai’s hearts are broken.
In Catcher in the Rye, Holden leaves his school before the semester ends to spend a few days in New York. He purchases a special record for his sister, Phoebe. He is looking forward to seeing his sister, and to see her perform in a Christmas concert. However, he later accidentally breaks the record, and eventually tells his sister that he’ll miss her concert, breaking her heart. He later changes his mind about missing the concert.
It should also be mentioned that Jess’ character is essentially that of Holden Caulfield’s. The only difference is Jess is hotter and can hold his own in a fight, unless, of course, he’s fighting a swan, but that’s another episode. Jess is an aimless and rebellious youth. He’s smart, but lacks focus in school, and his only real scholarly interest is in English. He often skips his classes, and has been transferring from school to school, once his troubles pile up. He also dislikes most people he comes across, and has a special distaste for phonies.
Given how much pop culture dominates the scripts of Gilmore Girls episodes, it’s not much of a stretch to think that they’d borrow the plot of such a popular book. It makes sense that it’s Rori’s storyline, since she is a bookworm. It is also fitting that she would fall for someone like Jess, who is truly a character straight out of a book.
*The fact that it’s a Go-go’s record is unimportant to the comparison, but the Go-gos are pretty rad and i think that they’re worth mentioning.

It’s weird that I’m one of the oldest among my internet friends. Like, there’s a few who are older than me, but they’re still all born int he same year. I was once the youngest of my internet associates by a decent margin.

My ankle is really hurting right now, which is odd, since it was fine last night. I didn’t know what I could have done last night while I was sleeping to hurt it. I mean, I’ll spend most of the next two days in a van, so t least it will be easy to stay off of it

My brother, Ian, the middle brother, is getting married on the 23rd, out in Surrey, British Columbia, which is just outside of Vancouver. My parents and I are leaving to drive there in the next hour or so. We’re planning to get as far as Calgary, tonight, and do the rest tomorrow. I’ll be gone until next Wednesday. Let’s see how good fast food on the road is now that I don’t eat meat. I baked a loaf of zucchini bread last night, and I’m-a takin’ it with me(it’s really good!)
