An update outta left field... [Apr. 10th, 2004|01:21 pm]
Well, it's been way over a month since I updated, so I might as well.

Everything is pretty much the same as the last time I updated. We got this new printer that is a printer, scanner, copier, and fax machine and it was only 116 dollars. It's awesome.

Everyone needs to go see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, it is an amazing movie, and I hate to say, it may even be better than Big Fish. It was such an awesome movie, and Ciara got in, even though she's not 17. We beat the system. They don't card at the new Rave theater, so I just bought our tickets and they didn't even ask.

We're having some easter egg hunt thing for all my little cousins today, then a bonfire. The bonfire is the best part because I love fire.

I go now.


Happy Easter, Jesus died for your sins, God bless you.

It's been a long time since an update, wouldn't you say?

Things to catch up on...
Went to a show with my woman. It was alright. There was a fight, which always spices things up. It was awesome because the band stopped and told the kid that started it to apologize to the crowd for interrupting. I hung out with all my cool friends like Ciara, her cousin Nathan, Lauryn, The Cham, and the rest of my crew. Then, when we got back to my house, I found out my stepdad was coming home. You see, he left 3 months ago for Oklahoma because he and my mom were having problems, but he came to his senses and decided to come back.

Ciara and I went to a spaghetti dinner at Bradley with her sister, Amanda. Afterwards we came back to my house and then went to Delevan to see her brother play basketball. The ride to Delevan was quite interesting, we drove separately, so I said we should race. Ciara tried to pass me twice and I sped up so she couldn't. Then, she finally passed me and so I had to pass her, so I got in the right lane to pass her, going at passing speed (80), not realizing that we were almost to a stop sign, so it went something like this. Me, going through stop sign, at 80 mph, in the wrong lane, hit a dip in the road, sparks come from under car, and I freak out, because it was awesome. After Trey's game we went to Ciara's mom's surprise birthday party, but soon left because it smelled like cancer in there and the "band" sucked. We went back to her house and watched October Sky, then I came home.

My mom wakes me up at like 8 and tells me we are going to go meet my stepdad in the St. Louis area which is about half way. So we pick up Ciara and head there. We meet him, go out ot eat, and come home. I am glad to have him back.

The best part of the day would have to be 3/4th hours since Mr. Clements was gone, we just sat in Mr. Gossmeyer's class and played games and whatnot. I came home and played Earthbound Zero on my NES emulator, then I beat Shadowgate. I am such a nerd, I spent about 4 hours playing games on my computer, awesome.

So, that was boring, bye.

I am an island... [Feb. 12th, 2004|10:32 pm]

Hello one and all.

Today went well, as well as a day at school can go. In consumer business we had a test over internet stuff, I think I did fine on it. In psychology we played a Jeopardy game with our STUPID student teacher. She was being evaluated today I think the classes performance spoke volumes for how well she is teaching. Being as 3 of the 5 teams had a negative point value. Third hour we worked on this stupid programming thing that our teacher refuses to explain to us, which is always nice. Fourth hour was the same as always, do a worksheet, play games on internet, blah blah blah. In fifth hour another test, but alas, no Jimmy Cahtah today, what a bummer. Sixth hour another test, but it was Etymology, so it was easy. Then I came home and played with fireworks. Then when my mom came home I drove her car to Delevan to see my woman. I gave her her birthday presents, which were: the new Nora Jones CD, a 4-pack of Vanilla Frappucino, a couple of candles, a key ring that looks like a giant ring (like for your finger), and this scary/weird picture album shaped like a monkey's head that it's mouth opens and it's the photo album inside. I like to think she enjoyed her presents very much. After that we came back to Pekin to eat with her dad at Applebee's. He is awesome. He bought me dinner and we talked with him about all the funny, dumb, annoying commercials on TV. We also talked about Janet Jackson's boob, but seriously, who doesn't talk about it. It's just a boob folks, we all know what they look like, her boobs are probably everywhere anyway, what's the big deal, just move on with your lives folks. He brought up a good point about it though, think about it, since that happened have you heard ANYTHING about Michael Jackson on TV? Probably not, she was probably just trying to take some attention off of her brother, which I suppose it's a nice thing to do, even if you do compromise your integrity in front of millions of people. If my brother ever gets in trouble, I will just walk around showing my boob to people and be like, yeah, so what if my brother did something, look at my man boob. I am missing Family Guy and Futurama, that is a suck. I am addicted to these journals. Everyday I get on here and read everybody's that I know. Am I pathetic? I like to think so. Today some girl was wearing a shirt with the anarchy sign on it, and I just had to laugh. Do all of these anarchist's understand that anarchy is IMPOSSIBLE? It could NEVER work. Sure, it looks good on paper, but so did Communism, and we all know how THAT worked out. If anarchists held a meeting, and someone was like, "I call to order, the meeting of the anarchist's club," what would happen? Would they listen and be quiet, because if so, they are contradicting themselves. If anarchy does occur, it's not anarchy, because anarchists will have obtained political power. If anarchists were robots, they would explode.

Today's contradictory lifestyle: Vegans that smoke. These people care so much about what they put into their bodies....unless it's cancer, then it's ok.

P.S.-Some vegetarians claim they don't eat because the way they raise the cattle is unsanitary and bad for the environment, so what am I doing for the environment? Eating a cow.

There's something to wrap your mind around.

Or not.

Little tiny number on a fold of matches.... [Feb. 11th, 2004|07:27 pm]

[music |With Arms Outstretched-Rilo Kiley]

All in all, it was good day. I went to school, but I didn't stay long because I boarded a bus to ICC, for one of the most boring field trips ever, well, it had its moments. When we first got there, we were given some folders with free crap in them from Cisco Networking, then some stupid people talked about their companies, and Jared and I laughed at this guy that had missed a belt loop. We were sitting two rows back from him, and on the other side of the aisle, and he had this bag with his name on it, which happened to be Mike, so we both called his name and looked away when he looked. That was entertaining for about thirty seconds. After that, we had to take some stupid test thing, I just filled in random answers so I could go wander around the school. So a few of my friends and I wandered around the school, which I guess we weren't supposed to, but we just used the excuse that Zack is diabetic and we needed to find a soda machine, which is somewhat true. Then we got free pizza and I ate about six pieces and I burped better than anyone in our class, which is weird because I am the skinniest little guy in there. SO after that, we wandered around some more, into the "catacombs" of ICC, which I guess they were just the technical classes. I'd say a good 95% of my time was spent wandering instead of watching the competitions and whatnot. Then I cam home and watched TV and ate for a while, then I decided to play in the snow. I built a huge tower of snow, then blew it up with M-80's. I didn't go to the Haste The Day show or church tonight, mainly because my car won't start and I didn't want to drive my mom's. Well, I think I will go watch Neverending Story 2 now.

P.S.-Tommorrow is Ciara's 16th birthday, so contact her and wish her a happy birthday, or else (shakes fist).

Well, well, well, look who came crawling back. Today, was a day, just like any other day. I finished reading Dude, Where's My Country. It was a good book, Michael Moore made some good points, but there were a few things I didn't like, but you'll have that. I went to Wal*Mart and Big Lots (to see my dawg Ross). I got Ciara's birthday presents and whatnot. I also got the new Phantom Planet CD. Tomorrow is awesome because I am going on a field trip to ICC all day to wander around and do nothing. My car still isn't starting, I hooked it up to a battery charger for about an hour, and no luck. That is a SUCK. I don't know what I am doing tomorrow, church or going to the Haste The Day show, it promises to be a rocking good time to be had by all. And church would be fun, but Andrew won't be there and he's the only person that really talks to me there. I watched some of the videos on the Saddle Creek 50 today, and they're hilarious. There is one where Jake from The Faint finds a dead cat in the road and gets out and picks it up and it's head falls off. That's always good to see, decapitated pets, PETA is gonna be so mad. Our new goal in American Government is to bring up Jimmy Carter as much as possible because if we do, Mr. Jordan does a crappy "Jimmy Cahtah" type impression which is always good for a laugh.

Well, I think that's enough.

Hello. Today was an alright day. I went to school, that didn't really help much. At school I just read "Dude, Where's My Country?" by Michael Moore. It's a good book, READ IT! I lit off some of my fireworks, that made it a good day right there. I wonder if my car will start since we're in the middle of a heat wave, all the way up to 36 degrees today. Ok, this is boring for me, and probably for you, I will shut up now.
