I slept in again today. I got up and ended up going to this spoken word program. It was incredible and it totally blew me away. I'm so glad that I went. All the poets were amazing. And most of them had cds so I got 3 cds and a book. Plus the 13th ranked slam poet in the nation gave me one of his framed poems that's usually $35. I expected it to last around an hour or so, but it was closer to 3 hours. Luckily the weather held up. It got very windy and blew one of the light stands over, but the words they spoke were so heavy that their cds didn't budge. Afterwards the dj played some instrumentals and they just started freestyling, which was just as amazing. Afterwards I went to rumours and got two meals since I hadn't eaten all day. Then it was off to the commons for pool. I went down 7-3, but after a break I went on a 19-3 run and that was it for that tournament. We were gonna start another one, but decided to just play power pool. Power pool is just as the title says where you hit the balls with a lot of power. This not only causes a lot more scratches. It sends balls everywhere so you get luckier. But the best part is sending the balls flying off the table. After two games of power pool it got ridiculous and we tried jumping balls from table to table, but that didn't work. A couple balls did take flight though and got lost for a little while. That's when we called it a night. Not before trying to get some free stuff from the lady working the desk. No luck though. Now I'll probably stay up until breakfast and listen to my cds and read the book of poems I got.
man, that spoken word thing sounds amazing! hmm, i wonder if anywhere in houston will be having stuff like that over summer. you and i should gooo!!Post a Comment
