The Looker

The Looker

so, at some point last week, my girlfriend jokingly brought up the idea of us going out to santa monica pier to see the sunrise.

yup. you read right. the sunRISE.

sunset is cool. because you’re already awake. the sunrise requires a tad more work, however, because you are required to wake up. so i agreed that we would go.

but the implications of this whole discussion didn’t hit me until about 11 pm yesterday. in philosophy, this semester, we were taught a technique called modus ponens which goes something like this:

if A, then B
Therefore B

so, when the whole sunrise idea came up last night, the process in my head went like this:

If we go see the sunrise in santa monica, i will have to wake up at 4 am.
we are going to go see the sunrise tomorrow.
therefore, i will have to wake up at 4 am.

that thought hurt. because, while i would consider myself somewhat of a morning person, 4 am is simply ungodly. i’ve heard it said that jesus didn’t even come out of the grave on the third day until at least 8 am.

but, all the crazy logistics aside, today was one of the best days i’ve had in a very long time. amanda and i got to eat at some really cool places (the omelette parlor, cafe crepe, and le cupcake), we got to talk to some cool people, and we got to hang out with the homeless and just love on them. it was nice to be able to get out and just have fun with my girlfriend. i don’t get that too much. there’s always a lot of crap going on.

alright, i’ve been awake for well over 20 hours now and its time to hit the sack.
