(i know i pretty much wrote about this already but i was thinking about it earlier and kind of wrote a more detailed, better-written-than-usual-journal-writing (i think) account...)

"It's too bad you don't dance," he says as he backs onto the dance floor. Mentally, I fill in the rest of the sentence: "because I'm going to dance with or without you." I shrug my shoulders. I am not sure which is worse--embarrassing myself by stumbling rhythmically like a drunken hobo or watching as he dances with somebody else. I keep an eye on him, the drink he bought me in my hand, as I sidle up next to Kelsey and make small talk. "I think this drink is probably actually really disgusting!" I yell in her ear. "But I'm so drunk at this point, it tastes FINE!" I shove the glass in her face. "Try it!" She backs away. "I'm trying to sober up," she answers. "But thanks, I believe you." Out of the corner of my eye, I can see Kevin talking to the girl he had introduced me to earlier. I am not jealous exactly. Well, I am, kind of. The green-eyed monster is waiting in the wings, ready to jump out if their chatting becomes dancing. However, a couple minutes later, he excuses himself from her company and we pair up again. Last call has come and gone, and the dance floor is for the most part cleared off, except for the few drunken stragglers, determined to milk every last second out of the evening.


Then, as I finish up that fourth drink of the night, I hit that point where gyration seems acceptable. Before I know exactly what is happening, he and I are dancing. Mind you, there are not enough drinks in the world to make me start shaking my ass around like a cat in heat while some guy rubs his erection on me. And given how intoxicated I am, it's likely that my attempt at dancing borders on pathetic. But I feel a surge of sexual energy as I push up against his chest and we move in concert to the music. I put my hand between his suit jacket and the button-up shirt underneath and feel the warmth of his body. It reminds me of the kind of intimacy I used to feel when I hugged Evan beneath his tan coat. "See...you dance," Kevin says. I shrug, put my arms up high, up on his shoulders, glass still in my left hand, and look at his face. This moment is one of those that freezes in your memory as something of ephemeral beauty. For this moment, we are stillness amid chaos, meaning amid meaninglessness. It was these kinds of moments, I think, that led me to my doom with Evan. They add up, paint a picture over time that can make one fall in love. So I know how dangerous these moments are. That doesn't stop me from enjoying this one, though.

The song ends, and we part.

dream
zombie girl

just had an incredibly stressful dream (well, the end of it was stressful anyway).

i dreamed that i was back in like, high school and we went on a field trip to disney world. there was some guy there that licoltvas was interested in but who had rebuffed her advances. we were about to eave for home but i wanted to get food before we left, so i went to a pizza place and Rich Contini was working there. We were bullshitting a bit and i ordered two pieces of pepperoni pizza. there was a little asian girl working with him and she was giving me a hard time. i had a considerable amount of difficulty figuring out how to give her the right amount of money, and then left without my pizza and went back to rejoin the group.

we were all sitting on a dock watching boats go by. apparently the boats were rides. Pirates of the Caribbean went by and then another boat that looked like a pirate ship but was actually a ride for something that had nothing to do with pirates. it was based on a movie but i forget which movie. anyway i was showing people photos from my camera and they were being projected on a screen somehow and as i showed them the pictures, i realized that they were videos. i remember thinking that it was pretty cool that i had taken these old pictures in video format. one was apparently from a trip to the zoo that i went on with licoltvas and in it, a monkey had a pizza and it was stolen by an elephant. i recounted the event to the group. everyone was laughing. then i found another "picture" but that one was boring. i flipped to the next one "if it doesn't have monkeys with pizzas in it, i'm not interested!" i said. the guy lindsay was interested in was sitting next to me and hitting on me and i was really getting uncomfortable. then i saw crystal niet walking across the water and i was like, holy shit she's jesus! and then i saw that she was walking on a section of the pier that was partially underwater. the guy was still hitting on me (his name was 'jon jon' apparently) and he even tried to kiss me, but i stopped him. when we got up, i said something about his advances and that i wasn't comfortable with him hitting on me since my friend was interested in him. he denied trying to kiss me.

then we all got on a train to go back. i was walking back and back and back into the train and then realized that i had forgotten a bag in disney world somewhere. i searched frantically for it and then when i couldn't find it, started freaking out because my ipod and camera were in the bag.

then i was back at my parents' house talking to my mom freaking out over the lost bag. my mom was like, you know it's no big deal! it's just stuff! i was ripping up papers and i smashed a glass candle holder. "at least your friends got back safe.." she said. "i don't give a shit about them!" i yelled. "I'd let them all die if it meant i could have my camera and ipod back! i've lost EVERYTHING!!!!' my mom tsk tsked at me, and that's when i woke up.

now back to sleep for a bit, heh..

Hi Veronica. I'm Hanif, a native Indonesian. It's nice to meet you. (I speak English, but not so fluent.) Therefore, I really want to have friends who can something-something ("diajk ngobrol"--doesn't even sound Indonesian. I think it's a dialect but I can't find a meaning anywhere online), etc , he pretty much translates the rest of it except for : terima kasih (thank you).

Now for my reply....

ETA my reply:

Halo Hanif. Saya senang berkenalan dengan anda juga. Orang Amerika. Saya di New York. Saya sudah belajar Bahasa Indonesia selama satu bulan. Saya bisa bicara Bahasa Jepang, dan saya sudah belajar Bahasa Jepang dua tahun di Amerika. Saya sudah belajar di Jepang dua bulan. Tidak sudah mampir Indonesia. Have you ever been to the United States? Do you study English in school or on your own? "diajk ngobrol" ini apa?

Please help me by correcting my Indonesian, if you can. Terima kasih.

Saya tunggu jewaban anda.

-Veronica
