Today's Lesson

Microwaving your dress socks because you're too cheap to pay to dry them in the laundry room is not a good idea. It doesn't really dry them at all and I think it may burn them a little. Not that I know from personal experience, but it may also make them smell a little like burnt hair. So if you decide to hand wash your socks in your bath tub, it is best to let them air dry or pony up the 75 cents. Just a little advice.

Sunday of all Sundays

If there is a reason to drink on a Sunday, it had better be Easter (or at least someone's birthday). I'm impressed with myself actually. Usually I sit around on Sunday and watch TV and procrastinate until like 5:00 and then start doing stuff. I knew that everyone would come back from Easter dinner and want to drink so I started doing homework at 11:00 and got a lot done. Either way, I got everything done today that I wanted to and I played a few games of beer pong. Nate may or may not have exposed his new chick to a world of hurt (emphasis on may) but whatever. Some good advice that I once heard is "Get your shit done and then party it up." Some of the best advice that I ever got. Fathers are great when you are old enough to party it up with them. You hear all sorts of wisdom that you wouldn't otherwise hear. Yah Easter and yah drunken fatherly advice.

P.S. The Cavs are going to blow it again.

The Boys are Back

April brings with it many things: warmer weather, spring blossoms, lighter jackets and most importantly... baseball. The baseball season is so long and somehow it feels like it isn't long enough. Sure I love all sports, just like any other guy, but baseball is great. Going to a baseball game gives you a feeling that you don't get from any other sport. You get that feeling in your stomach like you are part of something great. Sitting there with a bag of peanuts in one hand and a cold $6 beer in the other makes you feel more at home than if you were at home. Maybe its just me.

One of the greats

I've been talking for a long time about how excited I was to get out of Ohio after I graduate. I'd even be happy to get out of Toledo. Coincidently, the only job interviews I've had so far have been in Ohio. I just interviewed for a job with John Hancock and I think it went pretty well. The problem lies in the fact that it is IN TOLEDO!!!! If I get stuck in this damned state I'm going to go crazy. I've never been so encouraged followed by a sense of dissapointment when I realized that I may end up living here permanently. Furthermore, why is it easier to get a job interview for a high paying job than it is to get a damn job at Office Depot? Forget that...

What I really hate

is that you have to wait for the toaster to cool down before you can use it again. What the hell is that about? Stupid toaster.

Panama Jack

I've thought long and hard how to sum up a whole week of Tom Foolery in Florida without dragging on. Here is what I came up with... Ohio Sucks. Let me expand on that with the following list:

Ohio - Cold
Florida - Warm
Ohio - Not populated with hot women
Florida - Yeah
Ohio - Friends not seen naked doing the C-Walk
Florida - That's right
Ohio - Not so much flashing
Florida - Every day at 5:00 (on the dot)
Ohio - Clubs suck
Florida - Get sucked
Ohio - A few drunken nights
Florida - Don't ask
Ohio - Try and get a tan
Florida - Try not to get one
Ohio - Boring
Florida - Fun

I'm moving out of this God forsaken state.

Information Overload

Just drove back from a week in Florida. There is just too much to write right now, so I'll collect my thoughts and post on it tomorrow. Ohio sucks.

Josh is dead

Went out to celebrate Josh's birthday tonight. We started out at Red Robin (Josh's former place of employment) and we had some food and a couple of drinks. We met up with a couple of friends who said that they would meet us at the bar. (Let's take a moment to start a drink count... int drinkCount = 2;) Those friends never show up.. assholes. Whatever, we meet up with a couple of chicks that Josh worked with and Josh is interested in one of them. He spits his game while I play Erotic Photo Hunt (great game). During which, Josh has 2 more beers (drinkCount = drinkCount + 2;). Now it is time to offer Josh his birthday shot and he picks some foofoo drink. I say no and order two shots of Cabo (tequila). 2 minutes later... (drinkCount--;). I guess the moral of the story is don't drink tequila while you are spitting game. Either that or don't be a dork and write your blog posts with C++ references. Either way...

I never really fully understood what was ironic and what wasn't. But I think at the top of the list of things that ARE ironic is cable television. Every day, cable television providers lose market share to Dish Network and other satallite television providers. Yet, because of their own regulations (and I guess a little bit of the 1st amendment) they are forced to air commercials on cable that advertise for satallite TV. That has got to be a kick in the junk. That would be like Budweiser paying for a bunch of Miller commercials. Or better yet putting a few Miller Lites in every case of beer that they sold. Ok, that might not be a great analogy, but you get the point.

I came to a startling realization tonight. Mr. Rogers is dead. It didn't really hit me when it happened. But tonight, I realize that the death of Fred Rogers marked the end of successful public television. It was coincidentally shortly after the TV star's death that Dish Network and all of these other nonsensical satallite television providers started to flourish. I don't know where I'm going with this, but I am now, years after the fact, realizing that the era of my childhood has ended. Whatever, I will ALWAYS be a Toys R Us kid.

I'm finally done with all of the shit I had to do before spring break. I just belted out a 14 page homework assignment that had 3 huge data flow diagrams and all this other shit and it is only worth 10 fucking points. I think this teacher just assigns homework for the sake of assigning it. I don't think he looks at the assignments or anything. He is just like, "Why don't you guys answer all of the questions in the book and get them to me in an hour." Seriously, but whatever. My philosophy is to make the damn thing so long and hard to read that he will just have to assume that I did it well and give me an A. If he is going to assign all this work then I am going to give him some in return. The sad part is that I have enough free time to make my assignments so long that it would piss off a college professor. What's wrong with me?
