when i went to get dinner tonight, i passed a homeless man i often see in that area, dancing in traffic for change. i only had a few nickels and pennies or a ten dollar bill. i thought about how i had been watching buffy all day in the comfort of my apartment while this guy danced in traffic in the heat. i gave him the ten dollars and was glad to be able to help him out. but i felt a little awkward about what i said to him. i reached out to hand him the bill and i said "i've had a good day". but he thanked me and i said "you have a good day too"... so i kind of made up for the awkward way in which things come out of my mouth. i wished i had told him "i see you all the time, and you make me smile", but my brain and my mouth are not in sync most of the time. oh well. either way, i was glad to help him out.
i had a fajita burrito for dinner. i've been eating them a lot lately, as i need to start eating healthier, and they are the cheapest somewhat healthy food around here for take out. but i seriously need to learn to cook healthy, easy, cheap meals and i need to get in better shape. i am thinking i am going to try to join a gym again. i'm not good about going and often regret being stuck with payments for a year or two when i have completely stopped going, but my health is at risk now, so it has to be worth another try, even if it is a pain in the ass financially.
sunday, i brought my friend to a family party. we had a good time, with a few awkward moments, and then we drove down to rhode island and i spent the night there. it was fun. we watched Boogie Nights, which i just bought on sale the other day and had not seen yet, but i had a few drinks sunday night and will have to re-watch the movie to better understand it. i did like it though. i couldn't believe how many amazing actors were in that. crazy.
and i got 3 other movies on sale recently too. i just watched Bluehill Avenue. i have been dying to see it for 2 years, as it is a Boston gangster movie, but it is hard to find. it was great though. i also got Pump Up the Volume (my favorite movie of all time, but i only had it on video) and Suspect Zero, which i saw several years ago and liked, but i don't really remember it. i'm going to watch it tonight.
here is a trailer for Bluehill Ave. Bluehill Ave is a real street in Roxbury (Boston), MA. it's a pretty ghetto area. i have friends who live there or have lived there. It was a great movie.
