I've really gotta change my layout. It's pretty awkward when I try to check for comments at school and people are walking by as I look at these blue, purple, and pink polka dots. =)

EDIT: Dude, I was just attempting to hack into the computer admin account so that I'd have access to everything, and one of the computerlab interns walked by and he was like, "Why are you starting in safemode? Are you trying to bypass their security?" and I was like, "yep." and he said, "Hmm, I didn't think you could do that on these." And then he started helping me and suggesting things I could do to hack in, lol. It was kind of funny.

I didn't get in though. They've changed the default name so I don't know what it is. Any suggestions? =)

I think my face is coming off. Should I be worried? O_O

Madre dulce, what a splendid weekend! Wii = Turbo, but Darren currently only has one controller and one game. Heroscape = Turbo and we played it a lot. C++ = Turbo if you know what you're doing. Remote control airplanes = Turbo if they stay out of the water. OH yeah and I bought Songs To Burn Your Bridges By (Project 86) for like $8.00 and Crash Rickshaw (has the P86 bassist/guitarist in it) for only like $0.70! STBYBB is awesome and CR is awesome for 70 cents.

Heroscape castle I made. (back)
Heroscape castle I made. (front)
One Darren and I made. The guys were only set up for the picture. Otherwise that would've been a HUGE fight. =P

Tomorrow I see my brutha from my hulkin' mutha and we're going to program and game and game and game and Wiiiii!!!! I can't even wait. Not even a little bit.

Is it just me or is this a terrible font? Maybe it's just because I'm reading it on a mac? Hmmm...Perhaps I'll change it.
Yesterday, they were doing a skit in Spanish (as always) and one of the boys had to play a girl...Well he had a baseball cap on and he didn't want to take it off, so he just put the wig on over it and one of the guys nearby me said something like,
"He probably has hair hat."

Oh my goodness, I almost couldn't stop laughing. I was the only one who caught it though. It's sad to see such a splendid joke go to waste.


I love concept art. I want to draw stuff like that. ..although it doesn't have to be robots, just that type of art. Beauty. I was thinking maybe I should design/do-artwork-for table top games. Card games, board the nerdy Risk 2210A.D./Warhammer/Arkham Horror kind, not like Balderdash or anything.

Often times when I take my hat off, I get an urge to fix my hair, but it isn't there! O_O

Who does this guy think he is, M.C. Escher? Heh, no but he's definitely got some crazy skills and a wild imagination.

Monday, January 22, 2007


What's a guy supposed to when he loses his girlfriend? I don't know. But I was sad. And I don't know how it worked, but this made me feel better. =)
Anyway, I'm not sure what's funnier...the fact that I randomly shaved my head at midnight so that I'd feel better...or the fact that I kept my sideburns. XD But I'm pretty sure my sideburns are my source of power, like Samson's long hair. If they go away I'm nothing. =(

For dude's sakes! I saw my nephew four days ago and he was barely crawling. I didn't see him hardly at all since then, and now I see him, 4 days later, and he's crawling like a madman! It's incredible! I'd better not take any week long vacations or I'll come home and he'll be walking and talking! =O
Last Christmas I got a 1GB flash drive. $100. Today I just bought another 1GB flash drive. $15. Dude.

Now I'll still have one if mine breaks though. And I really don't need anything bigger than a gig because it can handle most any large install file(s), and also a bazillion pictures, songs, whatever. I'm fine with a gig.

Edit: I'm not actually expecting you to listen to this if you don't want to, I'm just seeing if I can embed it...although Thrice is pretty crazy sweet.

Woo, success.

I modeled my blog layout after them because of these comments on Cory's post.

Isn't it just err..lovely. =)
soooo tired...5am one night playing games, 3am the next night writing an essay at work & coming home, and then 1am the next night editing a photo. Gwaaaahhhhh. I'm so glad Big Bend doesn't do Friday classes. That's like wonderful and a half. Too bad I have to get up to work. =)

Mom mentioned possibly going across the state tomorrow to look at some restaurant stuff but it's not really in the vicinity of Darren and Faith. He got his Wii finally, and I really want to play Heroscape with him, and I also could use a crash course in C++ outside of class.

I doubt you care about anything said thus far. I will now right something you WILL care about!

You're awesome.

There, surely that interested you. ^_^
Oh but here's something not for the squeamish, heh. This guy is one of our internet customers. He holds the world record for benching 900 pounds. ..although I think he can do over a thousand now. Insane. When he does it, he puts so much pressure/strain on his head that like blood comes out his eyes and stuff. I'm not gonna lie, dude, that's incredibly turbo disgusting. =[
He's so ripped though. Observe for yourself if you have the stomach for it. =)

My teacher was telling a story in Spanish today about ugly Dennis Rodman going to a girl's (Amber's) house and offering her flowers. She ended up shutting the door in his face and he went away crying. Then I raised my hand, the teacher "¿sí?"ed me, and with my immature amateur speaking I said something like, "Dennis no abrió la puerta y no comió Amber?" and the teacher said, "Nooo!! Dennis no abrió la puerta y no comió Amber!!"

It was funny.

By the way, why can't English have words like anaranjada? It's fanstatic!

By the way, Jacob and I read in a tabloid that the mark of the beast isn't going to be 666 like we see it..but in BINARY!! So we shouldn't be looking for 666, we should be looking for 1010011010 or something, lol. Silly tabloids.

And now that I've given you that highly important information, I shall return to writing my essay. It's about The Destructors, which oddly enough I found somewhat intriguing. Could it be that I actually liked an assigned story in English? Weird!
The other night, I had my keys in my hand and was leaving my bedroom, and I reached up to flip the light switch. the light switch in my room has no cover on it, so when I put my hand up and flipped the switch, one of my keys was inserted into the opening around it and there was a "CRACK" sound and I looked and saw a spark fly down to the floor below. I was like "DO_ODE!!"

Anyway, I didn't think much of it other than "wow, I'm glad my sleeve didn't catch on fire or something" but then tonight as I went to lock the store's front door, my key didn't fit. I looked at it. It was melted. Dude. other news, this took place somewhere in Portland. Ridiculous.
I woke up today when class was starting. Oops.

Yesterday, my friends and I were up all night playing board games. We played a 9.5 hour game of Axis & Allies, and then directly after that we played a 5.5 hour game of Risk 2210 A.D.

Needless to say, we were all very tired of strategy board games by the end. =)

Check out my amazing program! Coooooool.
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <ctype.h>

void main(void)
char szWhatever[25];
char szKey;
int iRobot = 0;

szKey = getche();

while (szKey != '\r' )
szWhatever[iRobot] = szKey;
szKey = getche();

szWhatever[iRobot] = '\0';
printf("\n\n=========\nThe characters you entered make up the following string:\n%s", szWhatever);

scanf("\n\n\n\nPress enter to end program.%d", iRobot++);

Once upon a time, in the great white land of Canada, there was a little girl who lived with her mother, who was an old lady, who was played by a guy, who was dressed up as an old lady, who liked to watch Tom & Jerry cartoons. This little girl's name was Little Red Riding Hoser (not to be confused with Little Red Writing Foo. That's a different story entirely).

One day, Little Red Riding Hoser's mother said to her, "Little Red Riding Hoser, I would like you to take this basket to your grandmother, eh. She lives in a cottage down the road that like winds through the Snowy Forest. The basket is full of beer and donuts, so take care not to let anything happen to it, eh. It's beauty."

Little Red Riding Hoser agreed, and she exited the house and went skipping down the road towards grandmother's house. Deep inside the Snowy Forest, she found some snow (fancy that!) and decided to stop and build a snowskimo. About the time when she was putting his hood on, she heard a voice behind her!
"Hello, little girl," Little Red Riding Hoser turned to see a polar bear standing nearby (surely there are polar bears in Canada!), "What are you doing, eh?" it asked her.
"I'm building like a snowskimo, eh. Then I'm going to take some beer and donuts to my grandma." She answered hesitantly.
"Beauty. So like where does your grandma live, eh?"
"Jeeze, she just lives down the road here, eh."
"Beauty. Well have fun, eh. Watch out for like wolves and stuff."
The polar bear left and Little Red Riding Hoser finished the snowskimo. Then she picked up the basket, and trotted off down the road. A ways along, she ran into a mountie!
"Oof!" She fell over.
"What ho, citizen?" The mountie said.
"I'm on my way to my grandma's house, eh. I'm taking her a basket of donuts and beer."
"I love donuts and beer! Mind if I drop by later?"
"Sure, eh. She just lives down this road in a cottage."
"Beauty. Carry on then." Mountie said, and off she went to grandma's house.

At last she reached the cottage. She knocked on the door 3 times and from inside she heard a deep voice say, "Come in, you knob! I mean come in, my dear.."
Little Red Riding Hoser slowly creaked open the door and stepped in, "Grandma?" The room was dark inside and she could faintly make out a pale figure lying in the bed. "Grandma, you sound funny."
"Just a cold, eh. What are you doing here?"
"Like I brought you some donuts and beer and stuff."
"Beauty, eh! Bring 'em over here!"
Little Red Riding Hoser walked over and set the basket on the bed. Then she looked wide-eyed into the face of her grandma. It was most unusual.
"Jeeze Granny, like you've got some big ears, eh!"
"Take off, eh! That's so I can like hear and stuff."
"But granny, you've also got some big eyes!"
"Yeah that's so I can see, eh."
"And a big nose!"
"YOU'VE got a big nose!"
"You've got big teeth too, eh!"
"That's so I can eat DONUTS, BEER, AND LITTLE GIRLS!!"
And with that, the polar bear aka "granny" jumped out of bed, pounced on Little Red Riding Hoser, and gobbled her up! Suddenly the door opened and mountie walked in!
"Woah, a polar bear!" He exclaimed. The polar bear growled and Mountie whipped out his hatchet. With one mighty swoop the bear was hosed!

And with that, Mountie ate the donuts, drank the beer, and lived happily ever after.

This is a story Chargar wrote about a table.


He's not giving out any autographs, so don't ask.

Now go read the post before this. I don't want my joke to get lonely.
I couldn't accomplish my assignment in the computer lab today. I just couldn't make the dern thing work. I did get my computer to beep chaotically and have the nearby lady look at me and say, "what is that??". It was weird. Glad I didn't blow the place up.

I'm going to make up a joke! Ummmm...let me think...okay I've got it.

Jim needed his house painted while he was away on vacation over the weekend, but nobody was available to do it. The weekend was approaching quickly and Jim was desperate, so he went and asked his friend Tubs the bartender. Tubs said he'd get his buddies together and the house would be all painted by the time Jim got home. Jim, quite relieved, bought some cans of paint, left them at home, packed up his things, and went on vacation. Sunday arrived and Jim pulled into his driveway to see the men finishing up. He exited the car, went up to Tubs and said, "Tubs...what's up with my house?". The house was wet, sticky, and brown. Tubs took a drink of some green colored liquid and suddenly Jim realized what had happened. The men had gotten drunk and painted his home with beer while they drank his paint! "Tubs! What's with the beer!?" He exclaimed. Tubs took another swig of paint and said, "Oh don't worry about the beer, Jim. It's on the house!"


I drew this for my brother. So there.

Dad: Well, I'd better get ready to do some Unix work tomorrow.
Mom: You're going to do WHAT!?
If you don't get it right away, forget about it. It's not worth trying. ;)

My sisters and I watched Brother's Grimm last night. Great jibblies, that movie is messed up! O_O

If you're a cartoonist and you think of a brilliant joke while driving or something, you can just grab a pen and write it down for later use. However, if you're a musician and you think of a brilliant melody while driving or something, you're hosed. ...unless you keep singing it continually until you can record it somewhere.

Speaking of musicians...

I tripped over...I mean I stumbled upon this. Click on it, you.

We must remember that art is art! ..but then again water is water! And east is east and west is west, and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce it tastes much more like prunes than rhubarb does!

Darren sent me a couple cool things...

First of all, they're making a movie based on my Zombie Sheep song. Looks interesting. =)
Black Sheep

Also, this commercial ownses.
I'm sitting here working on C++ in the computer lab and nearby there's a girl named Jessica working on Visual Basic with a couple guys. She's kind of ditzy and she keeps asking them for help and they're only too happy to help her. It's kind of funny to listen to. It's like she's flirting with them and they love it, but she probably already has 5 other boyfriends.

Here's a story our teacher told and had us act out in Spanish class. It's very uhhh...romantic.

Había un muchacho muy guapo que se llamaba Ricardo Smith. Ricardo era más guapo que Matthew McConaughey, Brad Pitt y Antonio Banderas. El muchacho tenía una flor blanca. No tenía una banana; Brian Bridges tenía una banana. Brian West tenía una peluca verde y Brian Taylor tenía una navaja rosada (pink); Ricardo tenía una flor blanca.
El muchacho caminó a la casa de una muchacha guapa que se llamaba J-Lo. El muchacho no caminó rápido; caminó despacio porque estaba nervioso. En la casa de la muchacha, Ricardo tocó la puerta catorce veces. El muchacho no tocó la puerta dos veces, tocó la puerta catorce veces. La muchacha abrió la puerta, lo miró, saltó porque Ricardo es más guapo que Matthew, Brad y Antonio. También (also) J-Lo sonrió. Ella sonrió porque Ricardo era muy guapo. Ricardo sonrió porque J-Lo era muy guapa. Ricardo le dio la flor blanca a J-Lo. J-Lo tomó la flor y sonrió. Ella lo besó catorce veces y Ricardo saltó.

I wasn't going to watch Lady In The Water since Screenit gave it a 2/10, but Bethany rented it and thus it was at our house so I figured, "oh heck."

oh. my. fedex pen. (I just got a green fedex pen today. It writes in green ink.) That show was EXTREMELY bizarre, somewhat confusing, not very well made, and somewhat lacking in the "good acting" department. It was like M. Night tried to make movie with an interesting original idea, and interesting original characters, and an interesting original cinematography style, and ended up doing a really poor job at it all, lol. Trust me, it's not worth watching (unless you're really bored and find it lying around your house.)

Go watch Sixth Sense instead. It's times greater. Neu deut aboot oot, eh.

....oh and did I mention the nymph lady was really creepy? She was really creepy.

Pineapple cottage cheese is weird.

Give him a dose of super soldier serum and I think the young version of Clint Eastwood could make a good looking Captain America. He has a comic book face and when I saw him with an army helmet on, I thought "Holy Steve Rogers!"

Unfortunately he's old now and there's no super soldier serum.

Thursday, January 04, 2007

This is really creepy, but I like how the editing job turned out. (although he wears his hair a bit crooked) XD

Cory's new style
I just got this "Hug 'em Tight On Cuddle Up Day" as the subject of a spam email. O_O

I made a Hello World program in C++ today. It wasn't very exciting. It wasn't the first program I made either. Does that mean I'm not a true programmer? :(

Wednesday, January 03, 2007

Since my brother DEMANDED that I tell the unbelievable event that occured earlier it is.

A man came into the store today and asked Nick for me specifically. Nick came into the back and told me the dude had requested my presence, so I went out to the counter. I had never seen the man before. He was probably in his 30's, he had semi-spiked hair (kind of tangly), and a slight goatee.

I said hi and he reached out his hand to me. I reached my own to shake it, and as I extended my arm, he quickly whipped his other hand around and placed in my palm an envelope. I was a bit confused but I opened it without saying anything. Inside was a check written to me for $4,500.00!

My eyes bugged out and I looked up at the guy.
"Congratulations," He said, "You've just won fourty-five hundred dollars."
"Uhhhh?" I replied.
"You signed up for that contest at the Big Bend Community College, didn't you? The one to support the baseball team?"

I'd completely forgotten! "Yeah.." I answered, stunned.
"Well, you won!"
"Oh. Wow...err..Thank you!"
"Heheh, no problem, you have a good day." And he walked out.

I stood there in disbelief. Slowly I turned and looked at mom who was sitting behind me and she was just staring. Finally she said, "So what was that all about?" So I explained to her about the contest I'd signed up for and showed her the check.

Anyway, I ended up sticking the check in my wallet and was going to leave the store early to put it in the bank, when suddenly the same man came back into the store at about 3:00. I was using the computer in the show-room, so he saw me and walked over.

" you still have that check?" He asked.
"Yes," I answered.
"I'm really sorry, but there has been a terrible mistake...we looked at the winning ticket again and realized it wasn't you. The winner was actually somebody named Brian Brides, so you can understand the mix up when we looked your names up on our server."
"I'm really sorry. I'm not going to make you return the check since I already gave it to you--but really Mr. Brides was the actual winner."
"No's okay."

Reluctantly I drew out my wallet and returned the check. He ripped it in half and walked out, apologizing yet again.

So I guess I was potentially rich for an afternoon...sort of. Fortunately I don't care tooooo much about money. It can be corrupting anyway.

See, I told you you wouldn't believe my story if I told you.
What if the Punisher was a Pirate? Coooool. He wouldn't even need to reload his muzzle-loader pistols, he'd just whip out a new one every shot.

His logo would no doubt be the one I now have in the top right corner, eh? Beauty.

Nothing unbelievably exciting happened today. Well, there was one thing, but you wouldn't believe it if I told you.

Today I went into class and sat down. A moment later, Trevor walked in and I was like "Sweet! I'm in a class with Trevor!". We talked a bit as we waited and finally the teacher walked in. I thought, " Spanish teacher is supposed to be a girl." so I turned to Trevor and asked, "What class are we in?" "Political Science" "uh oh.." So I left and found the class I MEANT to be in.

Anyway, I think Spanish will easily be my favorite class this quarter. I'm excited for it. As an example for how we would be learning, the teacher lady called me handsome and told a story about me going to my beautiful girl's house and kissing her and she gave me a hug and then we went dancing. Mwehee! Oh and she had Spanish 101 written on the board and I kept thinking it said Spanish Laugh Out Loud.

There was a red Spyder next to me at a stoplight. It was sweet, dude. Not quite at the level of my great looking van, but y'know.

I was getting spam each day that I'd have to go through and delete, filtering out the occasional keeper letter. Then I set up a filter and the spam has gone away. Now I just get nothing.

I'm lonely. :(

New years was as I predicted. I had fun. And today I played some stuff on an XBox 360 and it felt XBox.

I really don't look forward to going to school tomorrow.
