i woke up late, made my way down to the beach. i got some sunblock in my eyes though, so i couldnt see too well at first and i still cant hear out my right ear, but that was the only complaint for today.
after i got to the beach i took a walk with my cousins kevin and mike to downtown york. kevin brought his skateboard and mike made fun of him for being emo. he's always making fun of kevin, but they are actually v ery good friends. making fun of eachother is how men show love. so i always make fun of mike for making fun of kevin. they are my cousins and they are eachothers cousins. they were born 2 days apart and just turned 16 last month. good kids. i enjoy their odd company.
we went t some place for mike to get sunglasses, then we went to the head shop where mike got himself a poster. i almost bought a $5 shirt that said LP on it. i was thinking it was el-p the rapper, but mike was good enough to say "why would you ever want a lincoln park shirt?" and i was like "no, its the rapper" and he pointed to the sleeve where it said lincoln park. oops. good thing i didnt buy it. i hate lincoln park.
when we got back to the beach i went in the ocean. my cousins james and dylan were in the water. mik and kevin came in for a swim, as did my cousins emily and lizzy. but for a lot of the time, it was just james and i. and we rode waves for like 2 hours.
after getting back on land i took kevin and mike to get a burger at wild willy's. they have good burgers, and then i dropped them off at the cottage they are at.
at 7, all of my family who are up in maine right now all went down to the long sands beach to play wiffle ball and horseshoes. i had not played any form of baseball in such a long time. it was fun. for years and years when i was asked to play a game like that i would say no, because my chest would bounce and i hated it. no more chest means getting to play again.
it was fun. i took some pictures. you may see a couple at some point. then i took mike and kevin back to the cottage i am at and we watched shawshank redemption. neither of them had ever seen it and there is a vcr here with a few movies. i think everyone should see shawshank redemption. it is one of the best movies ever. i always find myself so inspired after watching it.
i just took them back to their place.
now i'm kind of hungry. it figures. we ate at willy's at like 4 so i didnt go have dinner with my parents and sister. that is okay though, i had a nice time and i'm sure i can find a snack.
if worst comes to worse, i can always eat the vegemite i took along to show my family.
