- July 6th, 2005
Cory and I met up at his house early, he packed his things into my car and got a note from his cousin Dustin which Dustin said not to open up till we reached smuggs. So as soon as we pulled out of the driveway we looked at it, and it read "I Poop My Pants" in nice big letters, this was amusing now but would be used in a much more amusing way later in the week
Cory and I were alone in my car and we had to meet up with my parents and grandmother in Providence, but we needed gas first. So we went to the gas station near Cory's House, but as i pulled up to the pump i noticed a sign on the pump that said "Out of Gas", so i went to the next pump, which had the same sign. It soon became clear that the ENTIRE gas station was in fact, out of gas. So we drove down the road a bit more and got gas at Getty, and Cory bought some cigarettes which we smoked on the way up. I made the first of many calls to Chadwick on the way there and thus our Journey began...till we stopped in Fall River so i could get food
I ate some Tim Hortons hot choclate and a donut before walking next store and getting a toothbrush and toothpaste (which of course, i had forgotten). Then we were off...till we got to providence. Once at providence my dad took my car home and my grandmother, mother, cory and i were off...FINALLY
Several Hours later we had arrived (twas about six hours). As soon as we arrived i went straight for the convience store where one of the workers (Brad) remembered me from last year. That was quite amusing. After we got settled in Cory and i wandered around for a while, played a game of mini-golf and soon found ourselves at the Smuggs Bar at around 730 talking with the Bartender Chris. Chris was mad cool, and it was only like his second week working at Smuggs. But before the end of the night he was giving me and Cory free drinks, mainly because we were the only people in the bar most of the night. We actually left the bar and came back at some point, because there was an acoustic show that night which was happening when we came back.
The woman playing was in her 40's or so and was quite good, she even took my requests for Robert Johnson and BB King. Cory and i scared the bartender by taking straight shots of Midori (which i guess he had never seen). And Cory scared the performer when she came up to the bar and ordered a Coffee and Sambuca and Cory looked right at her and yelled in very Joey Lawrence esq Manner "WOAH!"and then he went right back to talking to me, leaving her looking very perplexed.
After several drinks Cory and i wandered off to the Gazebo where Cory unsucessfully tried to hit on a girl who walked by. I then told him that wasnt how to do it, and he montioned to another group of girls headed our way and i shouted a hello at them, only to have one of the girls come running into my arms and give me a big hug! Leaving cory looking very confused. I soon introduced Cory to my old friend Kim, who i hadnt seen in two years but i was very glad to have found. We talked with Kim and her friends for a bit before Kims friends wandered off and Cory, Kim and i went to see if Pete was home, and this time he was (we had wandered by there a few times earlier). Unfortunatly Pete was feeling a bit down as he had no Tailor with him and he was having post breakup depression, which is totally understandable. So we drank and chilled with him for a bit before Kim had to go home. Pete, Cory and i walked over to the clocktower to wait for Chadwick who should have been arriving any moment, and within about twenty minutes of us talking Chad had arrived
We had a nice big hug and the four of us went back to Petes placed and jammed for a bit before we all parted ways to go to bed
Cory and I woke up and had eggs for breakfast before i headed over to Petes place before a bit. Pete soon realized it was fathers day and he hadnt done anything forh is dad, so he took him out to brunch and i went back home. We swung by Chads, but his mother wouldnt let us in because she wasnt fully clothed so chad came out and talked with us for a bit and said he would meet up with us later. Unfortunatly for him he too would end up going out for brunch with his family, this left me and cory to our own devices. So we just vegged out at the apartment, i sat on the couch and Cory took a nap. After and hour or so i called Cory (who was like 40ft away) and told him we needed to get out of the house, he asked me where i was and i told him the living room to which he replied "Loser", i just felt like being lazy.
So me and Cory wandered around looking for girls and soon posted ourselves by the clocktower. Withing a few minutes Lynne and her friends/family arrived (Danielle, J-Lo, Steve) and i Lynne a hug and we said we would meet up later. After that Pete gave me a call saying he was back from brunch and we went over there and chilled with him for a bit before Chad called and met up with us. Cory wandered off and Pete, Chad and I went on a booze run (the first of many for the week). Soon Lynne called Chad and told us they were going swimming, and we went tointercept them before they reached the pool. We all said our hellos then Chad, Pete and i went back to Petes and jammed for a good long while. Cory had wandered off to see if he could hit on a girl at the convience store who hit on him. She said "Nice Shirt" when he was wearing a Sublime shirt, he replied with "You Too" (she was wearing the shirt all smuggs employees have to wear, a polo with the logo) but she laughed a LOT, so it was a good sign for Y2C.
Soon it was time for Dinner and Cory, Chad and I had Spagehtti and Meatballs that my grandmother made. Right after that Chad and I went to his place while Cory went off on his own again. Chad made me listen to some really cool bands and he also ate some more with his family. After that Chad and i headed down to the green to meet up with everyone else (Pete, Cory, Lynne, Danielle, Steveo, Jlo) and some people who had just got there (Christina, Bret). When Chad and I got there Cory was already pretty buzzed, so much so that he ran up to the children participating in a big activity on the green holding up his sign that said "I poop my pants". One Father said "Your setting a bad example" To which cory raised his hand in victory and shouted. After the Shennanigans there we moved slightly to the right to the Gazebo and Jammed there till after sunset.
Son we all ended up at Petes place drinking and singing, till Petes dad yelled at us and we had to move the party elsewhere. Pretty much everyone dispersed at this poing leaving Pete, Me Chad, Lynne and Danielle wandering up towards the clocktower. Pete was getting really depressed at this point and i tried to cheer him up, he seemed genuinly happy when he realized that even though i only see him one week a year i really do care about how he feels (you rock pete!)
Soon Cory (who was on a never ending quest to find cigarrettes) came back with Kim and JAMIE~! (who i know is going to read this, so im making her feel important). Cory had an amusing story of how he met up with Kim, as he had wandered off with Steveo and JLo to the teen center where cory soon began asking everyone for cigarrettes. He was soon approached by a girl who asked him if was trying to pick up 15 year olds. Cory snapped at her and said "Im just trying to find some fucking cigarettes". The Girl soon asked Cory "Where is Kevin?" to which Cory looked at her and his face went white when he realized "Your Kim arent you...Oh...Im Sooo Sorry". Cory spent most of the night apologising to Kim, lol.
Eventually everyone met up at the clocktower and we chilled there before the cops showed up on complaints of people being intoxicated in public. Bret shouted we should hide the crack as the cops showed up (Bret was on his phone a few yards away), Pete and i had a nice talk with the police which ended with them saying "Obviously you arent the group we were looking for, you folks have a goodnight now". That was one of many run ins with the Smuggs Rent-a Cops. After that Bret left and Pete and Danielle wandered off while Cory, Lynne, Chad, Steveo, Jlo and myself went into the building the bar is in, to the area where the ben in jerrys normally is (this was about 12 midnight, but the building is always open). Chad then broke into the janitors closet and we all put on these blue rubber gloves and contimplated breaking into the pizza place as we were all VERY hungry. But instead we just used the water cooler that was in the ben and jerrys and filled the gloves up into makeshift water balloons. It was fun as we all took kegstands from the water and had a little water war. Afterwards we soon realize we had to find Pete and Danielle, so Steveo and Jlo went home while Chad, Lynne, Cory and myself split up into two teams to find them.
I found them as they had dived into Mountainside pool, which seemed like an awesome idea as it was rather cold out and the water was steaming. But as they were drying off they got very cold, so we briefly went back to Petes place for them to get dried off before we all headed home. A Good True first night...and oh boy would we top it before the week was through...
