11:09 pm - class
so i had my education class today, and we did this get-to-know-you exercise where we were given a piece of paper with a little squiggly line on it, told to turn that line into a picture, and then write a story about the picture. i turned my line into a chicken, and this is the story i wrote (and read to the class):

"lucky the chicken was the luckiest chicken in the world. he had the biggest nest in the nicest coop on the best farm in the world. he had a beautiful chicken wife and dozens of cute baby chicks, and he would spend his days playing games with his family from sunrise to sunset. then, one day, the farmer chopped off his head, cooked him, and ate him for dinner."

you have no idea how funny i think that is.

3:51 pm - everybody dies!
after seeing "dawn of the dead" a few days ago, i find my self wondering... where would you hide if the zombie holocaust came? they get everywhere, ya know? there really isn't a safe place. i guess i'd just try to get as north as possible, like up into alaska. maybe zombies dont like cold. or maybe the outbreak wouldn't get that far. i guess i'll never know until it's too late.

in other news, i'm moving in about a month, and i can't wait.

current mood: calm

11:52 pm - the word has lost all meaning
i found out today that my best friend noah just got engaged to his girlfriend of three years, jenna. im very happy for him, and he is very confident with his decision and hes happy as well, so for that im glad.
but beyond that, i would say im pretty sad. what this has mainly done for me is to serve as a reminder that the best times i'll ever have are officially over. from now on its all work, bills, and responsibility. but its not like i've been denying that it would ever come, i just always thought it would come later. but later is now, and now im worried that i've missed out on something.

2:05 am - poison
so, just a minute ago, i was making this microwave chicken meal. every time i make one, the first step in the instructions is "cut film cover." so as i opened the box i thought it natural to cut the film cover as i placed the tray into the microwave. then, as i casually read the instructions looking for the time to set the microwave, i noticed the first step had changed into a much more threatening one; "do not cut film cover!". i didnt know what to do. was it poisonous now? i mean, microwaves are not something to screw with, especially around food. but i decided to eat it anyways, and i dont feel sick......... yet.

and i must say, this Storm team im on is pretty good. i look forward to each game. which makes me think, i think i might start a new journal, just to get a cooler name. but i dont know what name that might be.

current mood: groggy

12:38 am - xmas
christmas is here, and i'm butt-ass broke. i just got a new credit card, and its already halfway maxed. but its worth it to see the look on everyone's face when they open what i get them.

everyone have a merry christmas, and dont forget to tip the delivery guy.

also, my other hampster died the other day, about a week after i put his cage in the basement. i guess you cant do that if you want them to live. lesson learned, i suppose.
its too bad though, he was a cute little guy.

current mood: spacy

man, being busy all the time sucks. at least when i was busy with high school i could see my friends every day, now i just do everything i have to do alone. i guess that is really the biggest difference between school and life.

9:20 am - my mind reels with sarcasm
now, i know i've mentioned this to a few people, but i'd like to announce that i will be moving in july. and i couldn't be happier. it's a nice little place north of imlay city (about an hour drive from my current house). it's on a private lake, it's got i think 17 rooms and a few acres of property. definitely ripe for some parties. the only problem is, i'm not living in it already.

ever since my one hampster died, the other one has been freaking out a lot, always trying to escape his cage. and he did the other day, managing to make it down the hall into my brother's closet before i caught up with him and plopped him right back in his cage. little bastard. it's pretty funny to think of him waddling around my house in the middle of the night while my guard was down.

go buy a futurama boxed set, everyone. your life will be much better.

9:30 am - it feels, like, i feel.

...but it's worth it. im going to have a lot of fun this winter, since i will have mucho free time. not only will i be updating this a lot more, i will be hanging out with friends whom i hope have not forgotten me.

eric, if im going to go out and buy a perfect circle now, then you must give chevelle a chance. their first cd (point #1), not the second one. although they both rock.

current mood: crappy

9:19 pm - my story
back when i worked at walgreens, i used to be so goddamned bored just sitting at the register that i would pick up the lighters on display and fuck with 'em, so that the flame shoots out like 20 times bigger, and just put the lighter back. once a kid was playing with the lighters while his mom was buying stuff and he was stupid enough to light it close to his face. he didnt get hurt, but it scared him pretty bad.

thats my story.

9:53 pm - he just zips around<><>
other day, i saw a commercial for reebok. i think it was a reebok commercial. maybe it was something else. it's not important. what's important is what the commercial was about. it showed flashes of different people playing a different sport, and the message it was printing on the screen was along the lines of..

"playing a sport it important to the person that is playing it. it means something. it's a competition. it matters. it's hard. it's rewarding. and you love it."

or something like that. it was a really good commercial.

i'd just like to say,
i love hockey.
i play it even when i don't have to. i watch nhl games allll season long on tv, even if the game is not important what-so-ever. shit, i watched beach hockey when it was on espn2 early in the mornings. i think about it all the time. i look forward to every time i'm playing, be it on the rink or in the street somewhere. on game days i always get really tense and energetic the closer the game comes. god damn, i love playing it! i especially love playing against better people, so i can learn from them and try to beat them next time.

current mood: mellow

12:34 pm - you should just give me a call
alright, so i just came back from camping. and it really was superb. can't say i really did much, since there isnt a whole lot to do. but i did get to sit around and drink a lot. perhaps the highlight of my trip is meeting reme and maxim, two guys from france. they came up north with the andersons, one of the families that we camp with every year. anyhow, they were really cool. they put whiskey in everything they drank, since whiskey is cheap and strong. and the frenchies like cheap strong drinks. i was able to talk to them for a couple hours one night, and i actually learned quite a bit about the world, or at least the places where reme has been.

at one point during camp week, i had to drive back down to see 311, and holy shit, it was great. they played like 30 songs over the course of two hours, and everybody in there couldnt stop jumping. it was just one big happy group of people who love 311. i dont think i will ever see a better show than that, by them or anyone else.

but now that im back, i've got nothing to do. i told my boss i'd be back wednesday, so now i get a couple of days to just chill. and chillin is sweet.

chill on.

10:18 pm - reconsider everything
so i got some hamsters a while back. mango peachyface and sir widebottom. and all was well, until the other day i was playing with them and i noticed that mango peachyface has a huge friggin tumor under his chin. there really isn't much that i can do for him, since i dont want to take him to a vet and spend 600 bucks to heal a ten dollar hamster. i've reluctantly accepted his fate, and i am resigned to letting him live out the rest of his days in peace and comfort. he sure is a cute fella though.

the more i play hockey, the more i want to play it more. more!!

the new 311 cd just keeps on getting better and better. i couldn't stop listening to it all day today. i just bought it tuesday, and i've probably listened to the whole thing thirty times, and i dont think im exaggerating all too much.

i want to get a tattoo. i'm thinking, since i love hockey, what better way to show that love than by grinding a monument to it in my skin? thing is, im totally undecided on what design will express my fondness for the game, without being gay. and on top of that, i need to know where to put it. so far, i'm considering getting the NHL logo, but im not sure about it, and furthermore, im not sure where to put it. any input is appreciated.

anyhow, im going camping this wednesday, and i couldnt be happier. its does suck that im gonna have to drive back down here again to go to the 311 concert on the 31st, but i would drive to the moon to see them.

theresa's parents are total fuck-ups.

12:04 am - sunny days, rainy nights
somebody stole my tail lights. not the actual tail lights themselves, just the covers that i had over them. and i'm still pissed about it. they were fifty bucks! but someone gave me a good idea, which is when i get the new ones, just screw them in to the tailights, since i'm not going to take them off anyways. i don't know who decided that velcro is sufficient to hold those sucks on. the headlight covers too! the one on the right is sooo loose all the time, i'm surprised it hasn't blown off yet.

my big plans for tomorrow are go to see 28 days later. i'm thinking about going with my brother, casey, and whoever else wants to see it. it's a party!
jeff, i suggest you go, too, since you cracked me up so bad when we saw (spooky voice) the ring!!
so yeah, im thinking about going around 8-9, but im going to star gratiot because chesterfield amc isn't playing it for some god-knows-what reason.

painting is the best job i've ever had, i don't know what classes to take, i'm trying to drink only water (because it makes you healthier!), howie's sucks, hockey doesn't, and, to close,
i thank you for your time.

1:09 am - blank
so, saturday night, casy, theresa, mike, and ant were all over my house because i was having a fire in my mini firepit, just sitting around, when we hear this classical music playing real loud from next door. naturally, we all turn to look into the house, and we see the neighbor's wife dancing with another woman, like doing the tango or some shit. then, they start grinding and making out! and they did it for like an hour, until they got enough sense to shut the blinds. then the music started right back up and played until the woman's husband got home, and the other girl left real quick.
very weird.

i've been working my ass off lately, but it seems like im not making any money. i'm going to stop stupid purchases until... christmas. except for adam's b-day. that means a serious decrease in illegal-substance buying. but i guess it's about time for that anyways.
but as soon as my change jar gets filled up, you better believe i'm going to cedar point.

dammit, i hate credit cards. i'm gonna give it to theresa so it doesn't get used.

yeah, right. i'll give it to my mom.
what else sucks is that i wanted to buy shinobi for ps2.

i'm really enjoying painting. it's a lot of fun, and i find it very thereapetic. much like i used to feel at howie's. i guess that means i'm going to eventually be driven insane by it.
i think i may be getting fired this week from howie's by ed rockett (supervisor/nancy's boss) while nancy (store manager/my boss) is on vacation. i found out that he hates me because i never say a single word to him, not ever. and it's not some stupid game. the man is a compete waste. all he does is fvck everything up. everything he changes around, trying to "fix" immediately goes to hell. and he has fired people unjustly before, because he's one of those power-trip guys. that's why, when i get fired, i'm gonna get fieger to sue his ass for racial discrimination.

i'm gonna go get some sleep. i have a late start for painting tomorrow, so that's a bonus.

6:19 pm - hey honey, is kfc still open?
july 22, the new 311 album comes out. great news. im fucking excited, i'll tell you that much.
in other news, i paint too much and i wish i had more time to spend with my friends, especially the ones i don't get to see as much anymore.
old school is a great movie. a modern classic. will ferrel is the funniest man alive. funniest woman alive too, that's how damn funny he is.
i bought the trust company cd, and it's pretty good, if you don't listen to the lyrics. the man says "me" entirely too much. he rhymes it with everything possible.

also, nobody should see legally blonde 2. it's a travesty of a joke of a movie.

i love hockey all over again.

11:19 am - louisiana gators
theresa bought me tickets to see 311 at meadowbrook in june. this is going to be the first time i have seen them live, and damn is it overdue. i'm planning on wearing a diaper, just in case i can't control myself when they start. i really hope they play what was i thinking, but every song they've ever made (except for one) is brilliant, so i won't be dissapointed if they decide not to include it in the playlist.
i'm going to go to the 89x bday bash today, but i dont expect too much out of it. the only band i'm really going to enjoy is finch, and that's not worth paying fifty bucks for. i'm also really not looking forward to all the damn emo kids running around with their stupid haircuts.
for those of you who've been paying attention, it has been a hell of a long time since i last updated. i suppose there is a good reason for that, but im not sure what it is. maybe it's because i work a lot. maybe im just too lazy. both, probably.

i think that this is plenty for now.

4:33 pm - D.A.R.E. to be responsible, kiddos
"Before one can understand the difference between responsible and irresponsible use of cannabis, one must come to terms with the fact there are really two cannabis cultures in America, smart stoners and stupid stoners.

The stupid stoners wake and bake on exam days. They think being high is an end in itself and strive to be stoned as often as possible. When a stupid stoner shows up at your house, they usually feel it's their duty to compulsively decimate whatever stash you have immediately and save nothing for later. I'm sure we all know a few of these people. The stupid stoners are the people Cheech and Chong made fun of when they created the most widely accepted stereotype of a pothead.

The smart stoners, on the other hand, are the ones who use cannabis as a creative tool to enhance their lives. They know cannabis can be an asset if used intelligently. Bob Marley, Willie Nelson, Louis Armstrong, Ken Kesey, and Stephen Gaskin are among the many cultural icons that fall into the smart stoner category."

i know this kid leo. leo is the stupidest stoner ever.
i also know that most people that read this will roll their eyes.
