I am sooooo Popular

I was looking through my phone while sitting on the can at work today and discovered that I am not popular. I had a total of 20 missed calls and 20 incoming calls since April 14th. That means that I get .9 calls per day. Pretty impressive, no? What should I do now? Should I start dressing better?

I was reading a review of the Sasquatch music festival out in Oregon today. It looked beautiful, but would probably be a huge pain in the ass to be at because it is a weekend long music festival. The best thing I got from it was a quote from Brian Posehn (Mr. Show, Sarah Silverman show, etc..). Here it is:

"If your buddy blows you, it's not gay if you shout out 'Slayer!'"

Please stop raining.

Do you want to buy any Coupons?

Jessica just alerted me to the fact that there are tons of people who sell coupons on ebay. This is blowing my mind. There are coupons for home depot, cookies, ice cream, baby formula, etc........
I guess some of these make sense, like if you had 10% off at home depot and you were buying a refrigerator you could save some good money, but who would buy a $1 off coupon for cookies and pay .46? It is insane and I am shivering and confused.

Also: Wicker furniture is uncomfortable which is why I don't shop at Pier 1.

Real life Rapture from Bioshock

I can't believe it has been a week since my last post. Time flies especially when you go to a different state for once (thank you very much).

I just saw this article that these Libertarians are planning to build their own ocean community so they can live by their own rules and not have to pay taxes and such. The first thing I thought of was Rapture, the fictional city in the game BioShock that I have been playing. They even mention BioShock in the article. Those nutty Libertarians: http://www.wired.com/science/planetearth/news/2008/05/seasteading

I have been living the swinging bachelor lifestyle for a few days now since Casey is in Chicago for training. It has been so great to have such freedom, because Casey is always telling me what to do. Oh wait she never tells me what to do and gives me all the freedom in the world. Dang, I guess I've just been living a normal life this week. It's just been more boring because at least Casey talks to me sometimes which is more that I can say for my dogs who just look at me funny. What have I done with all my freedom. Let's see. I've watched a lot of baseball. I went to Lemmon's on Monday. I slept a lot. I did some laundry. I have found 2 birds in my yard. 1 dead and one alive. The one that was alive wasn't very alive after I had to pry it out of Peanut's mouth. I played synthesizer and scared Wicket. I tried to clean my gutters, but gave up because they were filled with like an inch of nasty shit. I think it used to be leaves and other things that float in the air, but now it smells worse than anything I can think of. I also tried to reinforce my temporary fence that we put up to try to grow grass. I was feeling pretty good about it until Peanut got through it again this morning. She is pretty amazing in her ingenuity. Although when I yell at her she can't seem to get back to the side of the yard she is supposed to be on. Maybe I've reinforced it the opposite way I should have.

Omaha wedding trip was a good time. There seemed to be a lot of unnecessary drama that I was not involved in, but was usually around due to the fact that we had no car to escape from such situations. Thanks to Jessica for letting us stay at your place and being our shuttle bus. It was also good to see a bunch of people I haven't seen in a while. Those Nebraskans sure can drink all the time. We also got to see Aaron (the Blondie) which was great. He seems to be doing well. I'm glad he is king of the skinny indie kids in Omaha. Aaron recently rescued some tiny abandoned kittens. They are super cute and have great names: Captain Video and Mrs. Movies. Their litter box is one half of a Clue the board game box. Priceless.

Happy Birthday Casey on last Saturday. I feel bad because the wedding we went to was on her birthday so she sorta didn't have much of a birthday. If you look at it another way she did attend a giant party on her birthday. There just happened to be a wedding reception there.

I'll leave you with something impressive. When I left for Omaha on Thursday I weighed 197. When I next weighed myself on Tuesday I weighed 202.5. Today I weight 197. I am a human roller coaster. Who wants a ride on the chunky fatcoaster of doom? I thought you did.

Omaha Bound

Hi. I'm going to Omaha soon. Who's excited? I actually am. It will be nice to get away for a weekend and see some good peoples I haven't seen in a while.

Updates on the last 2 weeks. Ummmm. Can't remember. I beat BioShock and that was cool. I got to see Radiohead for free and that was cool. Everything I do makes me feel old. boooo.

I'm trying to figure out a trip to the east coast. I have a free plane ticket that I have to use by 7/11. Casey can't go with me because her new store is opening up and she can't leave for that long. I don't know if it could work but here are the cities I would like to visit (Baltimore, New York, Philadelphia and Montreal). I think I could hit most of these in a week long trip, but that depends. Who's in? There is also always Colorado as well.

Bye STL, hello NEB.

Can the Boy Tell Time?

I wrote this on 5/13/2008, but it evidently never posted. It was saved as a draft. This will probably change your life.


I went to Milo's on the Hill to celebrate Joe's 30th birthday. He is old. It was a nice relaxing time. We mostly watched MXC on TV and made fun of all of the contestants. Then strange things started happening. I saw this guy Ryan that used to live in an apartment below mine in Kirksville. Then I saw this girl Libby Ann that used to go to Truman and date Dr. Widitz. She was the girl who never wore shoes. Literally. Well almost literally. She was wearing flip flops this night so she must have made some serious life changes. In school she was always barefoot (the only exception was she wore running shoes to run in the morning). That would suck in my opinion. I had mostly decided that I wouldn't talk to them because I always assume that people won't remember me. As Ryan was leaving though I said Hi and then saw 2 more people that went to Truman. This guy John and this girl Courtney that is either married or dating Ryan. Let's see. My history with John isn't much. He lived in the same dorm as me and when I was a computer science major wasting time in the computer lab in the middle of the night he was often there. He had a theory that if two objects are moving fast enough towards eachother they will stick upon impact. I'm sure this theory was true, but I was also sure that he wouldn't prove it by slamming a chair into the wall. He also once ate candy bars until he threw up.









I was watching The Royal Tennenbaums at Lemmons last night and realized that the line "Can the boy tell time?" was from there. That was the blog of mr. eric e. I'm quick. Anyway. I love that movie.



So I was so excited about seeing the Breeders last Saturday, but no one wanted to go with me so I slept all night instead. I also beat BioShock and saved all of the Little Sisters. I am a great human being.







There is a lot of other stuff I was going to write about, but what's the point.

Just the Kiss of the Hops!!

Things are kind of slow at work. Well today slow is probably an understatement, but I'll get over it. I'm pretty tired today cause I stayed up late this weekend. I'm a party animal. Watch out Spudz Mckenzie. In fact I am currently skateboarding with a lampshade on my head wearing neon jams and a body glove tank top.

I know everyone will be disappointed to hear that the Atlanta Hawks have been eliminated from the NBA playoffs. Therefore I pretty much don't care anymore. I have the Cardinals to enjoy for now.

I have a new policy on beer in bars. I will get a quality beer for the first 1 or 2 beers and will buy whatever is the very cheapest from then on. After a few you don't really care what you're drinking anyway so why not save some money. I had a $1.50 Pabst and a $1.50 can of Schlitz this Saturday with my new policy. Much cheaper that the Hefeweizens I had on Friday night.

So the weekend was good. It was the Ashley birthday extravaganza weekend. We had some Everest cafe for dinner Friday. It was very tasty and I haven't been to that part of town much lately and it is looking damn good. Maybe someday when I decide I like people I will go there again. Then we met up at Mangia for some late nite drinks. Saturday we tried out a new pizza place by my house called Odesto. I thought it was damn good. Ashley got to get anchovies as a topping which made his day. I did not have anchovies and that made my day. If I ever get the urge to eat anchovies I usually just clean out the shower drain and get some hair and add a bunch of salt. It really does the trick. Then we watched baseball which was a disappointment, but the only one of the weekend for the mighty Cardinals. Then we went to CBGBs and Mangia for drinks Saturday night. Most of the time I would be ready for bed at 2:00 am, but this night I decided to play Bioshock until 4:30 am. It was well worth it, but I am feeling the lack of sleep now. Sunday I did yard work and wore a tank top (sorry not pictured).

At the bars on Friday and Saturday we saw this guy that looked exactly like a Mii character that Casey made on our Wii. The character was named Creepazoid and this fit the guy well. He always had a really disturbed unhappy look on his face and he walked around the bars not talking to anyone. We were kind of making fun of him, but he almost proved us wrong. These drunk girls were screaming and falling all over each other and he made a terrible face at them. This must have started a great conversation, because it appeared that he got their digits. We thought he was ready to score, but then they stopped talking to him and left with some other dudes. So close creepazoid. You almost had a hot threesome with 2 nasty drunk girls.

I'm bored of typing.

My friend Jen has dedicated a blog to critiquing the fashion sense of Ice-T and his lovely wife Coco. It is in my links under: Fashion!!!! It's pretty funny.

Should I go to Lemmons tonight or go to sleep? That is the question. Adios.
