Last week, Joe had asked Aaron about borrowing his van for Wednesday, so we could all go to the Psy show. We being; me, Tim, Joe, Rosey, Adam, Krisi, and Su. Aaron said he would think about it, but he was being indirect and iffy about it. You have to know Aaron, though. If you're not a PRO WRESTLER or his "Daddy", then he won't help you out. Seriously. He claims to have been 'friends' with both Joe and Tim for the past 18 years. He's not a friend. He's just someone who lives here. To me, he isn't anything, and he never will be. I don't want to live with him anymore, but it's not my place to tell him to leave. Rosey agrees with me. He just does things to annoy us. It's as if he wants us to get angry enough to move away. It won't happen. I won't argue back with him, because, honestly, who knows what he will do. For God's sakes, he's hit his mother. And, he's said in the past "If I knew I wouldn't get in trouble, and I wouldn't lose my job, I would beat the shit out of my ex-girlfriend." Fucked? Oh yes.
Anyway, back to the original story, Joe was voted the one to ask Aaron to borrow the van. Let's reverse this a little. Dana and Cherry had planned on going to the show, as well. They said Joe and Rosey could ride with them. Well, at the last minute, Dana called and said they didn't have a babysitter, and no money (or something else). So, there we were dicked out of another way to get to the show. It's okay, we have another plan. We'll ask Aaron to borrow the van, and we could all fit. So, we vote Joe the resident "van-asker-borrower-guy". He asks, and Aaron was a little iffy, like I said before. The next day, Tuesday.. Adam asks about it. Aaron, of course, like I had expected, says no. So, now, we're fucked out of another ride down there. What are we to do? We can't just call someone out of the blue and ask. "Oh yeah, could we borrow your vehicle to take to PHILLY tomorrow." Not only that fact, but we wouldn't have really had enough for gas. Actually, I did. So, that could have worked. *shrugs*
Tim volunteers to stay back. I wouldn't go, if Tim wouldn't go. Rosey was kind of indifferent to the whole thing. She's not a juggalette, and I think she may have been a little worried about the whole thing since the beginning. But, she said she would stay, too. Again, I won't go, if Tim won't go. Krisi volunteers to stay because she wanted me and Tim to go. After a lot of indecisiveness, we decide. Krisi and Rosey are going to stay here. Later on in the night, Adam says that if Krisi stays, he won't go. Now, we don't have the driver, or the vehicle for that matter. I mean, Rosey, Su, and Joe all have licenses, but it was Adam's car we were going to use. Adam wants us all the try and pile into his car, to see if we could all fit. By this time, we're all kind of sluggish and just generally too tired to want to get up, get shoes and coats on, go downstairs, and try to cram into a vehicle, that we all clearly know won't fit the seven of us. We decide to sleep on it.
The next morning, Wednesday, the day of the show, Adam wants to be out of here by noon. Didn't happen. We completely decided on Krisi and Rosey staying. Everyone had to shower, and get ready, and Tim didn't wake up til, like, 11:30, I think it was. I still had to shave both Adam and Tim's heads, paint Adam up, and do Tim's hair. So, after the long schpiel of the showers, head shaving, painting, and doing hair, we're ready to leave. Poor Krisi and Rosey start to cry, and I feel bad so I'm like "Fuck this. I can't do it. I'm staying here." They insist on me going and that they'll be alright. I leave 40 bucks here for them to order food, and we leave. It's almost 2pm now.
We stop at the Buck General, so we could get munchies and I could get batteries for my camera. Then we stop at McDonalds, and Su buys us food. We're now, finally, on our way.
We get on the turnpike, and it's about 3-3:30. We see another juggalo car. It was obvious, because of the big red hatchetman on the back. We're driving down, and Su is videotaping them. We get side by side to them, and we're driving, like 80-85. They show us a bag of cookies they have and Adam pulls up close the them, and grabs the bag. Adam shows them a Faygo, and pulls up close again, and hands them the Faygo. A little down the road, we see a 'Statie" on the side of the road. We go past, and he pulls out. We're all freaking out, like holy fuck, Tim's on parole.. Krisi's on probation.. what are we gonna do if we get nailed. Those of us in the back all stealthily put our seatbelts on. It's hard to ride in the back of a car, and have a seatbelt on. I almost always wear one. Don't bitch at me for it. ;)
The State trooper pulls ahead of us to the other juggalo car, and follows them for about 5 miles or so. Then, the inevitable happens, he flashes his lights. They get pulled over, and we pass them off. Adam's second guessing himself, freaking out because they got pulled over and we didn't stop to see if they were okay. We reassure him that there was NOTHING we could do to stop it. They were the ones driving like 100, and the officer caught them. Absolutely NOT our fault.
Okay, so more driving, and FINALLY we see the signs to get to Philly. It's like the angels came down and shone their light upon us. haha. So, it's about 4:30 or 5.. and you guessed it.. TRAFFIC JAM! Ugh. Happened to me last time, too. So, we're driving, worrying about the car overheating, in this God awful Philly rush hour traffic jam.
It sucks to drive through Philly. The streets are all one way, there's shifty looking people everywhere, and they will jack you for your money. It didn't happen to us, so don't worry. :) We finally get in and find a parking garage. We all have to pee so fucking bad, it's unreal. We go searching the city for a place to use the bathroom, and we find STARBUCKS. yay? Anywho, we go in and make a beeline to the potty. The kid working there is like "Restroom is for customers only." Like, wtf. So, we go and buy some things, just to use the bathroom.
We do our "duties", hahaha, leave starbucks and walk around town for a bit. We see Jumpsteady and Rudeboy enter this used CD store, so we go in. Adam goes up to them and asks if they can sign his bandanna. Cool. They do, and that's that. I couldn't even care less about them, though. Which was weird. I just looked around the store with Timmy.
We go to this bar afterwards, while Adam is on the phone with Krisi, and Joe bought us all a round of Yuenglings. Yucky. But, I digress. I drank it quickly and caught a little buzz. After the beer, Tim and I had my very first shot of Goldschlager. Ewww. It burns. :\ But, I caught a nice little buzz. We go outside and wait in line. It's freezing out there, and I only had a t-shirt on. So, I'm getting a little hyper from the alcohol now. I'm jumping around and acting crazy. It was fun.
These guys come around handing out free CD's. It's muhleriaaaaa.. *yawn* We take his CD and Adam talks to him for a bit. The cops were walking around the line, one had his little billyclub out. There really was no reason for it, though. [Later on in the night, Mare told me that South Street has a lot of riots, so the cops are more "hardassed" there.]
Finally, about 20-30 minutes later, we get in. Yay. We go right to the bar, because I'm still buzzing and I want to keep the buzz. We get some drinks in us, and we go down to the floor.
[ RIGHT NOW I'M NOT GOING TO POST ABOUT THE SHOW. I'LL DO THAT IN ANOTHER POST.]
After the show, we go outside, and wait for Joey, Su, and Adam. They're in at the Filthee booth, buying CD's and getting more autographs for Krisi. [By the way, Thursday was Krisi's 21st.] Tim and I are waiting outside, and these cops come up to this group of kids; asking how old they are and why they're smoking. They tell the cops they're 16 and 17. The cops are being dicks, telling them they're out past curfew. Curfew is 10:30 in Philly if you're under 18. The one kid walks away, and the cop is yelling at him, "Hey afro! Get your ass over here." So, the kid comes back, and the cops are yelling at him for the smoking and being out. Then, the kid is getting a little cocky to the cops, so he puts the kid in cuffs.
A few seconds later, I see the one, the only.. KELLY!! I got a big smile on my face and I gave her a huge hug. Needless to say, I was excited to see her. I asked where Mare was and she told me she was taken away by some guy to do shots. Later on, I found out what happened. So, I talk to her for a minute and I tell her we'll be at the Wawa waiting.
We go to the Wawa and get some food. We only stayed there for a few minutes, but now I wish we had waited longer, because Mare and Kelly ended up going back there. *sigh* Ah well. After we left Wawa, we got asked for money by a bum. Joey gave him a little bit, then we walked to the car. Then it was home-bound.
That's about it for now. I have to get ready for work and make food.
I commend whoever read the whole thing. haha. It was a lot.
