Saturday after the underwear party, Brandon & I saw The X-Files movie, which we both loved despite popular opinion. Terra loved it, too, & actually saw it Friday night, & that's why she wasn't at the party, but she did text me in all caps afterward information she thought I needed to know that would only make me more excited. Meanwhile, Meri & AJ went to Long John Silver, which they'd been talking about all Friday night, & saw Step Brothers, while Nolan was in the mountains with Phil & Marshall. Why none of us just slowed down & recovered I don't know, but it was probably a bad idea. Nine hours of sleep in two days made my head hurt.
Nolan came over & we just sat outside & talked for a few hours yesterday. Everyone is having an amazing weekend, it seems, & we got to find exactly what happened at certain parts of the night, when we weren't all in the room & it wasn't obvious or something. For example, Phil joked that while Marshall & Nolan weren't wearing pants anymore, which ended up being true. Then, after Meri, AJ, & I went inside, we heard someone follow very soon after. We knew it was Nolan, we heard him go to his room. We sat really still & quiet & listened & tried to figure out if he was alone, or if he would risk bringing Marshall in. I have to admit, I never thought he would. His parents don't know he's gay & we thought it was took risky a move, but the doors have locks. You can imagine what went on in there. And Nolan really likes Marshall. It makes him anxious cause it's all so new to him & he's afraid Marshall doesn't feel the same.
We went in his car & listened to this tape recording of his visit to a psychic in Morgantown last week. It was really freaky. She asked him very, very few questions, & even then it was just to confirm something. She talked almost non-stop about him & people around him for almost a solid half hour, & from what I know & what Nolan confirmed for me, she was really accurate, especially in her description of his dad's personality & the mention of our grandfather, who died almost four years ago now. She even described the shed where the party was. That was weird. I really want to go to someone now. I always did, but hearing that made me want to do it more.
Meanwhile, it seems Meri & AJ have made it official. I'm usually against getting into something this close to starting college, but they're too adorable together to be denied.
And my aunt apparently knew we were drinking, before the party even started. How we got away with all that while they were sleeping in the house I don't know. They never once came to check in. The only instruction was to not let anyone drive. She said there were plenty of places to sleep, which is so, so true. And I was told of this by my grandma, no less. So Grandma knows we go in the shed & drink now. And as long as we don't drive, no one apparently cares.
