I didn't expect it to be good, it was just bad. "Blah blah blah, look at my friends, Dean is so kewl. I'm not, blah blah blah."

Digging. Generally anywhere, but especially not in the backyard while a party is going on in the house, where I'm supposed to be playing guitar and singing. Then rolling in through the back doggy door. Man, I guess my Friday night was alright, nevermind.
