There Is No Spoon



No Internet for the past week due to some problems with the router; I fixed it while the landlords are out for their daughter's wedding. Is that Geek Squad material?

Also, the electricity went out for a whole day here. The electric company was supposed to shut off the power for the house next to us, but they made a mistake and shut ours off instead.

All these problems with technology made me realize just how dependent I am on things like computers, TV, and Internet. I was literally dying without them. Then I see a show on MTV called "The 70's House" - has anyone seen that show? It's horrible - which goes on to further prove that we can't live without current technology. We are children weaned on digital milk, extracted from the matrix. I dunno what the hell that means either.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through Chuck Palahniuk's Choke. (Yes, I started reading it this week because of what happened.) I'm liking it so far, but I'm starting to see through the pattern in his writing. I still like his style, though. He must have some childhood issues...

Don't we all.

Episode 4: "My New Toys"

I hit level 40 last night and got my mount. I got the red one, and that's John on the right with a blue one. There really isn't much difference.





Sideview.





Couple of levels ago, I completed a difficult quest and got this as a reward.





It's called Whirlwind Axe.





Say hello to my little friend.





On a pretty unrelated note, remember Kazzak, that huge red demon that raped us all? Well here we have a mini-Kazzak. It could have been his little brother. I greeted him with a little Whirlwind Axe to his skull. Payback's a bitch. In a way.

You Might As Well



I've been trying to make an appointment to see a school counselor to figure out just what the heck I have to do to transfer to USC as soon as possible. (a boy can dream, right?) The thing is, they're not picking up the damn phone. Maybe they're on lunch. Maybe they're in the bathroom. Maybe they're just took the day(s) off because of the hot weather. I dunno.

I'm gonna be stuck in FJC forever, aren't I?

Episode 3: "Razorfen Kraul"



My, how things have changed.

Adrian has quit indefinitely. Pablo has stopped playing with us in favor of other people. But hey, that's okay. Life goes on.

Since we're all over level 30, last night we decided to head down to the pig-infested cave called RFK and kick some pork ass. Just in case you're confused by the pictures below, we chugged some potions from John that let us transform into human ninjas and pirates. Normally, we're all walking skeletons. (like me)

From left to right: John, me, Keisuke, Drew, and Brandon (one of Adrian's roommates)





See how happy we are even though we didn't have a healer? Huh? We didn't die once! You like that Pablo?!





Coming up on the next episode: RFD.

truth




I spent two nights near Lake Arrowhead with a bunch of 8th graders for their graduation trip. It was at the same house the young adults stayed at for their trip couple of years ago. It was nice to get away for a bit - we spent majority of the time eating, TV'ing, and Playstationing. On Friday we went to the lake and I got to jetski for my first time. It was really fun. We rented two, and Johny somehow ended up breaking the really fast one (but it wasn't his fault). The people that rented it out were cool about it though, and we didn't have to pay for it. Played mafia until 4am that same night. One of the games was really frustrating, and I'm ashamed to admit that I got a little mad because of it. But hey, what can I expect from 8th graders? Anyway, I hope they had fun at the trip and that it was something memorable for them.

Primer is... a really confusing movie. It literally made me feel dumb. I'm gonna try to watch it again and piece it together.

I always catch Not Another Teen Movie on Comedy Central when I'm flipping through channels, and I'm not ashamed to admit that I love that movie. It's frackin' hilarious.

Don't Steal Billy's Newspaper



I just came out of the shower to see that my guitar case got pee'd on by Mikey (the dog). So I kicked him out of my room. Then he started barking. So I shut the door on him.

That'll teach him.

Headcrabs Are Not Pets



Thanks to Keisuke, Grace, Pablo, Jeon-san, and the Paiks, moving was fast and easy. They have two huge dogs here, but they're friendly for the most part. (Except this morning, when one of them growled at me as I tried to go to the bathroom. He held me prisoner in my own room for almost an hour.) The room smells a bit, but what can you expect with dogs in the house? I have plenty of febreze so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

One bad news: the wife of the owner of the house was hospitalized the night before I moved in. It's horrible knowing that a person you just met (that seemed perfectly fine at the time) could go down like that.

Public Health Warning



I found this website that has bunch of comics made with Half-Life 2, and they're hilarious. I would share the website with ya'll, but then Solomon would just steal them for his xanga. (jaykay jaykay)

On a competely different note, I've found a new place to live. It's close by, and it's cheaper than what I'm paying now (plus cable and internet, minus the utilities). I'll be moving tomorrow so if you want to help out, please do.

Start the Reactor



My WoW subscription expired the day before yesterday. Needless to say, I'm going through withdrawl.

So I finally saw the Coldplay video for "Speed of Sound" that Keisuke has been parodying lately, and yes, it really is the sucks. What the hell are you doing, Chris? Did Gwyneth make you go nuts or what?

THE GOOD: "Four Kicks" video by King of Leon
THE BAD: aforementioned "Speed of Sound" video by Coldplay
THE UGLY: "Blue Orchid" video by The White Stripes

If Only That Worked



I had a dream that I all my teeth fell out, except for the upper wisdom teeth. Then they grew out super big and sharp, like a walrus. I'm a freak.

From "dream symbols dictionary": Losing one’s teeth is a common dream reflecting concerns about one’s physical and social appearances, and effectiveness in a competitive environment. Occasionally can reflect literal concerns about dental conditions or procedures.

Whatevs.
