later tonight, adam, zach, tim and i went to roosevelt field to purchase gifts for cordie's surprise party tomorrow. we hit up j. crew, but nothing was on sale and i didn't want to blow all my cash on an $80 shirt. afterward we moved to fye and bought modest mouse's the moon & antarctica, one of the shins' cds, being john malkovich, and one other movie as presents for cordie. i got the ghost in the shell dvd for myself and asimov's forward foundation before adam's mom picked us up. we headed back to his place to play speed capitalism, in which i was defeated and tafted during the first hand and zach was able to keep winning bison for at least five games, what a loser. tim pretended throughout the night that his hand of cards was a rice paper fan and cooled himself with it while making vague pseudo-japanese grunting sounds, but this distraction resulted in his repeated failure to excise the bombs from his hand before playing his final card. such a fine game, even with just four players.
tim's mom took zach and i home from adam's house. i watched the ghost in the shell dvd that i got earlier and talked to maxim a little about paris hilton, the GED, and how she'll never be able to pass it. he just went to bed and there's nothing more to do, so i'm off to sleep.
