"... I forgot how weird your sense of humor was, Jon," 'Dre tells me as he takes a seat across the room from me.
"You know how I do," I reply. "However, I do take offense to your use of the word "weird..." I'm eccentric, pal. Unique, even.. but weird? Hardly," I say with my head tilted up indignantly. Much like this :
Wow, I have a big head.
While Andre shakes his head in disbelief, Matthew begins to grin from ear to ear as I stretch out on a recliner in his house. "I missed this," Matt says to me after a chuckle. " The classic Jon sense of humor."
With a shrug of my shoulders, I allow the corners of my mouth to rest as my smile fades. I glance around the giant living room, trying to reconstruct and compare its present condition to how it looked when I was last in Matthew's home two years ago, a year or so after we initially met. Me, Him, Gene ( below ), Dre, and Josh(I was closest to Josh than any of the aforementioned folks), were there that day at Matthew's place.
Anyway, back to Matt and I. We clicked quickly. He was intelligent, sarcastic, and most importantly, witty. Contrary to what my NuTang blogs may indicate, I do have a few male associates... they just aren't as I just don't write about 'em all that often. Why, you ask? 'Cause as much as I love Superman-look-alike Adrian,
the stuff we did when we hung out would be boring to write about 'cause I couldn't romanticize it. Well, I could... but then I'd be a fan of Los Angeles Sporting teams ( a.k.a. a loser. )
Anyway, I've known 'Dre for years -- ever since 7th grade Football. We're not the best of friends or anything, but we keep in touch and make an effort to hang out. Back in High School, most of my free time was spent on the football field or in the locker room. As such, most of the folk I spent my time with were on the team; however, I've lost touch with a lot of them over the past three years and I dun' see them no more. Wish I hadn't.
The only person, outside of the Family, I really see on a consistent basis when I come home to Dallas is some loserface woman who I love with all my heart. I only love her because she serenades me with her acoustic renditions of "The Final Countdown!" and the theme from the Fresh Prince.
Stop being narcissistic with that big picture of your head.

I used to think I had a big head. Now I've decided that if anything, it's too small. But not by much. Proportional heads are nice to have.
Yey for self portraits? Heh. » middaymoon

Teach For America would be great because not only would be helping students that really need your help, you're also setting yourself up for a successful career.
Win-win. » Chloefoxx

This is unusual of you. Posting photos in your blog? You usually paint the picture with words instead o_0 Not that the change isn't a good thing...it's weird, I leave Nutang for like a month, and a bunch of people have changed. Or at least their latest posts indicate as much. Do I really know you guys that well?
You and Bizzle_whore have both blogged about friends and now I feel inspired to do the same, but I have no way to go about it -_- » The-Muffin-Man

I think its very cool that you still keep in touch with people. I have a few friends that are out of high school and they barely make time to keep in touch. Im also scared that once I go off to college, I'll do the same.
+++ You dont have a big head. You took the picture from an awkward angle! » Bizzle_whore

I'm not sure that anyone deleted it. I think maybe my computer just sucks ass. » randomjunk

I think that's probably worse than what I lost, even though my OCD is making me try to redo everything the way it was in iTunes. » randomjunk

My,my Jon what a surprise! I came looking for a trace of my new blog journey and I come across to yours which has become a plog! That's right-- not a blog or a vlog but a plog! (plog = picture blog). There's something about the last picture I find captivating. not because she's a pretty little asian thing but because of the candid moment of softness in her expression beneath the shadow across her face and the way the ends of her feet curl in a dainty stance . I know I am romanticizing this photo to a whole new degree but I just like it :) » Phoid_hearted
