Last week Jimmy, his brother, and his dad came up to see the North American international Auto Show in Detroit. I haven’t been since I was little, so it was great to be able to go with friends that actually know about cars.
LaDante and Elson joined us for the auto show, and all of us were pretty impressed by Elson’s knowledge of cars. I’m not that surprised though, Elson has a breadth of knowledge that is only surpassed by the collective information database known as Wikipedia.
The main reason I wanted to go to the show was to see some neat concept car. The Toyota SR1 and the El Miraj were probably my favorite. I took a lot of pictures and apparently I just learned how to arrange my pictures in a table much more easily than I’ve been doing. So enjoy!
Afterwards we went to Ashley’s for dinner. We found a couple beers that Zack actually liked! Mission accomplished. Jimmy and Zack were introduced to the deliciousness that is a Monte Cristo. I do enjoy eating part of one, but I always can feel my arteries clogging as I eat it. It is delicious though.
After we were all full, people congregated at my house for board games, Chromecast, drinks, and camaraderie. Was nice to see the house so full of friends again and everyone having a great time talking and hanging out. The night started out with Zack, Ryan, Will, and I played Mansions of Madness while Sarah, John, Elson, LaDante, and Jimmy played a game of Tzolk’in. Later on Garrett, Savannah, Craig, and LaTonya played and won a game of Castle Panic. Then we all just hung out, drank beer, and conversed. It was a lot of fun. I can’t wait for another night like that.
Despite my best efforts at being a hermit I can’t seem to help but want to hang out with people. I’m not sure what I was trying to accomplish by becoming a hermit though. I guess I felt like I was always the center of attention in a gathering, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing? But I guess I kind of feel like I’m turning into an attention whore. I was hoping to mitigate that by hiding in a modern man’s cave and forswearing the use of Facebook. The Facebook part of it seems to be helping, but the locking myself off from the rest of the world seems to be not working. Well at the very least, I’m doing a poor job of isolating myself. Guess I have more thinking to do.
