Long Post Filled with Life Revelations and Crazy Weekend Shit.

So it’s Monday morning and my wrist is mostly recovered from this weekedn. it’s still pretty sore and I don’t have full flexability or movement, but it’s a huge improvement from Saturday night/Sunday morning. Really weird weekend in all, so I suppose I should get talking about it.

I got up Saturday morning and drove to Kim’s house in Hanover, PA. It was a 90 minute drive and It was nice to see all the leaves changing. As it was such a scenic drive, the time past quickly. I met up with Kim and parked my car in her backyard and then we drove to the hiking location, but not before Kim nearly drove her car into mine. It would the first of many very close calls that day.

We met up with Michelle, Herb, Sarah, Michelle’s two kids and Kim’s son and proceeded to go on a average length hike up a mountain. It was pretty rocky, so there was a lot of climbing involved. At the top of the mountain there was a bunch of college kids. While we were taking a break and letting the kids have food and water, the college kids asked me to take a picture of them and one of them began flirting with me…until I pointed out I was 31. Whoops.

The way down the mountain ended up being pretty hectic. The kids kept slipping and falling and I kept reaching out and catching them before they did any serious damage and pulling them back to their feet. Do that about a dozen times in an hour and you can start to see the wrist injury beginning. Eventually I was watching the kids and their apparent lack of safety that I myself slipped a bit and landed directly on my right wrist. It didn’t hurt at all until later that night, and it probably didn’t help that ten minutes later, Justin damn near slid down the entire mountain if I hadn’t caught him with that same hand I jammed earlier.

After we got down we ended up doing a side trail up the Appalachain Trail. I didn’t think this was the smartest idea considering the sun sets late in October, no one had night gear, and no one had done this part of the trail. Of course when the “mile” we were walking turned into about three and we still hadn’t reach the AT luxury cabin they wanted to check out and the sun was starting to set, people besides me started to realize this wasn’t the responsible thing to do with kids in tow. Seriously, I chose not to have kids and I’m thinking more about the potential of child injury. What the heck?

After we all get down, Sarah and herb went their own seperate way for the night, mainly because they were child’ed out. The girls the kids, and I went to the Applachian Brewing Company where we had a great meal. My main entree was a pomegranite blueberry chicken and I had these nice thai mango garlic chicken wings. The kids were pretty quiet due to them all having their DS’s and copies of various Pokemon games.

After that it was back to Kim’s house for a while where the kids got to see my newest copy of Platinum and were utterly absorbed in it. Not surprisingly the fact it was in Japanese didn’t even phase them as they could tell what moves they had and everything else. Behold the power of Pokemon.

We finally decided to use that free ice cream cake coupon I’ve had for their Cold Stone since April. Backing up out of her driveway though, something smacked up against the side of my car. No actual damage to the car save for a crack in the coating around my driver’s side rear view mirror. Thatw as time #2 if you’re counting.

After cake, Michelle had to drag her children away from Platinum and then Kim and I hung out for a while until I decided I needed to go home. You can’t really even think of spending the night if the kid is home. At least I can’t. So I gave Kim a hug, said good bye to her tiny wittle bunny Comet who smaller then Baby and is in a very tiny cage that makes me feel bad for him and we called it a night.

While driving home I realized that more then ever, I never ever ever ever ever want to have kids. I don’t think I could handle that 24/7 of watching out for them to keep them from risking life and limb, giving up my free time to cart them everywhere at the expense of things like seeing the world, limiting my food choices while they are in that 10+ year finicky phase, and the smothering. Oh my, the smothering. These kids were all pretty taken with me but there were times when I felt like I was cast into the babysitter/daddy role, which I know wasn’t intentional, but it still creeps me out to have any sort of responsibility for another human being. Bunnies I can handle.

On the way home I kind of came to the revelation that I’m probably never going to settle down again. I’ve tried the living together and the serious commited relationships and the engaged bits and each time, I’ve been happier being single and free than I ever was dating. Sure there will be times after a break where I would be, “Aww, I miss XXX.” or the ultra rare occasions where I get lonely, but I know more then ever I could never be able to stay sane in a situation where I would have to take care of/worry about/protect someone all day every day. Especially with the batshit crazy shit in my life like oh, wacky vampire hunting cults. How could I ever subject someone I love to that whole schebang? “Oh I’m sorry baby. This crazy guy thinks I’m Dracula and here’s a crazy ex stalker of mine and when little Billy turns 15 let’s show him that movie I made in prague. THAT won’t scar him for life.” Of course this also means I’m choosing the creepy option of “dying alone,” but how bad is that when it seems better then the alternative?

The drive home was pretty sane save for the occasional crazy driver out at midnight. Then I got to Arlington. There was this total fuckup behind the wheel swerving through lanes without turn signals, driving in turn lanes and then switching voer at the last second. he nearly caused five accidents in about a minute, driving at least two other cars over the road and nearly hitting me (Time #3 for the day of close calls). I’m sitting there watching them swerve like absolute jackasses, nearly killing people and saying, “Those stupid fuck head. They’re going to kill someon…”

And then I watched them wrap their car around a telephone poll at about 45 miles an hour. I was the first car behind them but due to their driving I had backed up far away from them that i wasn’t in any trouble. It was only seconds but this is how my brain worked

Thought 1: Jesus I hope they’re okay
Thought 2: Well they deserved that after nearly fucking killing you and other people
Thought 3: Why isn’t anyone stopping. They have to be pretty hurt
Thought 4: The same reason you shouldn’t stop. Because everyone else is just glad they fucked themselves up instead of them.
Thought 5: Okay. I have to pull over and help
Thought 6: No you don’t.
Thought 7: Yes I do. That’s what makes me better then them. Otherwise I’m just as big an asshole.

So I pulled my car ahead, turned on the hazards and went to go check them out. I ended up pulling both of them out their totaled car, one of which had a nose that resembled a pancake. Seriously, where the hell did the cartalidge go? A morbid piece of me was hoping to find it in the car. Neither one spoke English save for “No Policia! NO POLICIA!” This to me spoke of three things.

1) Illegal immigrants
2) Very drunk or on something illegal
3) Both 1 & 2

By the time they were out of the car, a family came out of a house near where the accident had happened. This family was also Hisapanic and obviously didn’t know them, but they took them inside. They too told me not to call the police or 911 and thanked me for helping. Then they dragged the two inside and that was it same for the hissing and leaking wreckage on the road next to me.

During this entire event, not a single other car stopped to help or see if they were okay. What the hell is wrong with people around here? I found myself pretty disgusted with humanity in general. Assholes wrecking their car after nearly hurting several others and assholes not bothering to care about injured people. I’m really starting to think that living in DC for a while turns you into a self-absorbed fuckup with little regard for anyone who isn’t exactly like you.

So I drove home, which was only 3 or so miles from this incident, talked to heather and Vlad for a bit, showered, played with the rabbits, and called it a night.

Sunday I found myself to be a bit down. My friend Don thinks it was just the wearing off of nearly a full day of adrenaline surges, but it’s still here this morning so who knows/ Sunday was just me letting my wrist relax, finishing my Dead Space review, and playing with bunnies. I’ve been pretty mopey since Sunday morning though, and I’m not sure why. Could just be it was a sitting at home recovering and writing day compared to the weird shit that happened. Could be a lack of sunlight. Who knows?

That was my weekend. Only 9 days until Halloween vacation! Whooo.

Also, Phillies vs Rays in the World Series. Come on Phillies! Don’t choke for once!
