Yesterday I went over to one of my friend's house. What we did? We played band hero, there was a copious amount of role playing involving a warped Star Wars based (from what I could gather) plot with plastic swords and nerf guns, ping pong, KFC, covers of the Pokemon theme song involving our impromptu band (which was called Jedify Him), and the use of spoons and cups as instruments, and ~rocking out~ to Cookie Jar by The Dream with two electric guitars and excessive crotch thrusting.
And it's been on my mind lately but I feel extra sappy this morning - we don't do these things a lot anymore. Ever since the end of last year I'm starting to realise the transition we (we being my friends and I) have gone through - from daytime guitar hero and trips to the cinema...to parties ending beyond midnight and booze and saliva fests. Saliva fests are good. I'm not going to complain about making out, but, it's just kind of depressing. It really does feel like we're ~growing up~. This is all well and good, but I had the most fun I've had for a while, last night. Just sitting in my friend's room singing to crap rap songs off key and dancing around to Walking On Susnhine via Band Hero.
I think I'm all sad and shit about this growing up and this transition into night parties because I'm so not hardcore. I don't drink, I wear clothes from charity stores that were once probably owned by elderly ladies, my favourite hobby is listening to The Beatles on my bedroom floor, I do enjoy making out but not massively with everyone I meet. And it just really saddens me that events NOT fueled by alcohol will be increasingly less frequent. But what can you do? Maybe I'll just end up adapting and when you talk to me in a few years time I'll be scoffing at the idea of having a picnic at noon with no booze or nudity. But it'll all be fine, because if I adapt and grow up with these people that I guitar hero with, I'll be having these nude alcoholic picnics with the people I love, and that's all that matters.
