extended vacation

In response to my last post, that was a quote from the Narrator of the movie "the Sandlot". Kudos to you who caught it, and for the ones who didn't: check out that movie, it is a childhood classic and still kicks ass today.

I must apologize for my absence lately, i had a lot going on in my personal life. I recently decided to add a second major. Not a big deal, but 20 credit hours shy from my current degree, i feel like it took a lot of thought. Clearly i am too deep to just abandon it, so instead i added another one.  My expectations of the research field i wanted to go into are just much different than the reality; so i decided it smarter to inconvenience myself for two more years and get two bachelors.

My dad put it best when he said "Better to find out now you weren't gonna be happy, than when you are 30, hate your dead-end job and have a kid and a knocked-up wife to support" Whether he is speaking from personal experience or not is up for debate....

I'll follow up with part 2 of my self-indulgent pity party in a few days.......

     Michael "Squints" Palledorous walked a little taller that day. And we had to tip our hats to him. He was lucky she hadn't beat the crap out of him. We wouldn't have blamed her. What he'd done was sneaky, rotten, and low... and cool. Not another one among us would have ever in a million years even for a million dollars have the guts to put the moves on the lifeguard. He did. He had kissed a woman. And he had kissed her long and good. We got banned from the pool forever that day. But every time we walked by after that, the lifeguard looked down from her tower, right over at Squints, and smiled.

I am not sure how i stumbled upon this video, but one i heard the song i felt that strange knot of nostalgia.. Is anyone in the same boat as me with this one? (doesnt really pick up until 15 seconds in) (the hairdo doesn't help either....)

The Gang

     i live in suburbia near some small woods, so ive seen my fair share of deer over the years. But this winter, a herd of about 14 has moved into my neighborhood. Every day at twilight you can see them walking single file through my neighbor's backyard to another neighbor's house where they feed them. There is one who is always a bit behind, on account of her formerly broken leg. It never healed correctly, so it makes walking quite awkward. At first i felt bad, thinking she was in pain and suffering. Then one day i saw her take off like a shot, easily three times faster than i could ever run. It dawned on me that although her leg made walking cumbersome, she is doing well.  I felt better after having realized they are built much hardier than we are. I haven't seen them for several days, but i am sure she is still trucking with the rest of the group. There is no point to this post, just a story i thought i'd share.

I went to eat some cereal today, and was excited to see a box of trix in the cupboard. Trix used to be my favorite, and i hadn't eaten it in years. i grab a huge bowl and start pouring. Different colored spheres tumble out. what the fuck! where are my fruit shaped nuggets? WHERE?! did they cut back on a big part of Trix's awesomeness just to save money? i still ate it, not wanting to waste food, but it didnt taste nearly as good as i remember. It tasted sad, tasted broken.....

Not just an Urban Legend anymore!!!

Everyone hears those outrageous stories about something amazing happening to a friend of a friend, but none of us ever believe these things actually happen. But this time, it did. I am now one of the rare friend of a friends you occasionally hear about. Allow me to elaborate....

     It was a late, ordinary summer night, so i decided to watch some pron. First video has the caption "College amateurs!", and since i am in college (and like amateurs), i decided to give it a shot. Ten seconds in, i stop it since it was so lame. I look down at the related videos section and see what resembles a familiar face... "Can't be..." i thought to myself, clicking the video just to be sure. Once it starts playing  i start smirking, because the blonde in this video has the same unique face as a blonde i met the previous summer... Still, i am not totally convinced, since the video is low quality.... Until she turns around, revealing a small tattoo on her lower back!
hahahahah! This is no time to fap, so i immediately blow up my friend's phone. This is something that i have to share. Unfortunately he is sleeping, so i finish the (sadly, disappointing) video. After sending the link via facebook to almost every mutual friend we have, i go to bed. It is hard to sleep with my excitement, but i know i must so i can time travel to when my friends will be awake. The next morning i call someone who would know for sure, and we are on the phone as she opens the link.
"Ohhhhhhhhh my goddddd" is all i hear, and thats all i need. i throw my arms up in a V, fists clenched. Victory. These next images represent how i felt for the following week. Cloud Nine.

A little background information, when i met her she was playing a game of strip pong with 3 other girls, and ironically, she was the most reluctant to get down to her undies. For a little more information, she isnt in the pron business, she (and her two friends) just decided to take advantage of some websites offering money to amateur submitted videos. i ran into her a few months ago, and we said nothing to each other; either because we both knew that i knew/saw (and let everyone else know/see), or we just didn't care enough to say anything. I hope some of you get to experience the joys of such a discovery someday. thanks for reading.

It has been a pretty shitty week. For my older followers, you might remember i had the flu a few weeks ago, and that had me on quarantine for about 12 days, meaning i missed about two weeks of class. Well i came back, spoke with my teachers and got all the missing work/readings. I wish catching up were that easy. After i came back i had about a week before there were two exams in two different classes, so i had to catch up on two weeks of old material and learn one week of new material. i tried, and then took the exams. I got them back this week and i bombed them both. i dont feel bad though, its like the circuit breaker of stress in my head flipped due to the overload. maybe i will snap back to reality and will feel shitty, but until then, i think im good.
                                                      TL;DR : shit hit the fan

The Highlander, The Kurgan, Charlie Sheen?

Well i went to the doctor yesterday, and had some X-rays done. Looks like its just a strained trapezius, but that shit is stiff. moving my neck feels like pulling cold taffy. oh well, could be a helluva lot worse.

Hopping on the "post about charlie sheen" bandwagon, i gotta say, this guy's system is amazing. The amount of drugs he can take and still function without a diaper, nay, normally, is astonishing. he should be studied, maybe he can unlock some mysteries of the human body. i suspect the only thing that can kill him is another immortal taking his head. There can be only one!
