Addendum to the last post: my skates are officially bad ass.

6:12 PM
Screw with me and get eliminated. My old inline skates found this out the hard way -- one day after I fall twice, they are sold. I am now the proud owner of a pair of K2 Kinetics (2000 model year). Spending $300 for a pair of skates seems like a bit much, but they are worth it.

Damn. Stronk has a great design, but it's not even in English! Stupid foreigners...

I just suck today. I fell twice while inline skating today. I haven't fallen in over a year, and this time I just had to fall in front of a huge group of young teenagers. I thought it was funny, until I realized I had a mess of blood caked into my leg hair. Ew.

Wow, I do not think I have been so insulted in a long time. An ex-girlfriend and I had been playing phone and email tag for a few months now. Since I am back living in Livonia, MI and her house is literally 300 yards from mine, I decided to stop by. She wasn't home, so I spoke with her father. This is the kicker -- he forgot my name! I mean, we weren't the best of friends, but I thought I left an impression. But anyway, living so close yet we can't get a hold of each other. Reminds me of a certain other someone that lives in Livonia. We young adults are just too busy!

In too much pain to go out, Mike decides to 'blog his Friday night away.

"There's a garage sale going on down the street. They are selling all of their crap that they don't want, as if I want their second hand trash. I like to give them a hard time about it. Like when there was a lot of people shopping today, I yelled "You think this stuff is no longer good enough for you so you try to sell it to us!? Oh gee! I'm worthy of the Miller's garbage! Thanks a lot! Hey everyone, we are all worthy of the Miller's old trash!! Hoard it all, maybe someday you will be worthy of the stuff they still grace with their use!" Garage sales are also the best for doing things you normally wouldn't do in stores. Like breaking things and then not paying for them. I broke this old alarm clock by accident when I threw it at some really old man that was having trouble standing. Then some guy, a total stranger who had nothing to do with it, attacked me. I fended him off with an ironing board, which I also didn't pay for after damaging. I then went around back and threw rocks through their windows and dumped their garbage into the pool. I didn't pay for anything, it was the best. I can't wait for more of my neighbors to have tag sales. I usually like to break into my neighbors houses and steal lots of things, like valuable things. Then I put price tags on all of it and bring it to somebody else's tag sale down the road. 3 people have moved so far, at least two noses have been broken, and 8 police officers have visited my street as a result of property disputes." via Robot Frank's Diary. Just be glad I didn't make the entire paragraph a link.

It could be funnier, but it is still great: Mr T vs Iron Chef.

Darn, I burnt out again. Give me a minute to catch my breath.

6:25 PM
Stay tuned. Another uber-update will be online as soon as I am caught up with life! Moving, getting a new job, starting a new life... it takes a lot out of ya!

Jesus action figures. Unless I can buy one with kung-fu grip and Auto-action Assult Rifle, I will pass.

Bryce 4 is a very interesting program. The ability to render 3D objects with ease is a great skill. Firey donuts on a soft background with a floating boulder inside -- that just about sums up how crazy I am.

The only thing about Elian you will ever see on this site. Thanks Jamie!

I was outside so long today that my face is actually sunburnt. How cool is that?

9:26 PM
I know I am going to regret that -- I just deleted all but 11 of the messages from my Sent Items email folder. Another existence-wide change is in effect, and the old world is dying.

To be happy, I just need to be social. Around 9:30 PM, I went out to eat with Char and Beth. I rarely see Char, since she goes to Albion, and I rarely talk to Beth, because... we usually don't hang out. It was good to see them both. After that, Laura decided she wanted to go out, so I made a late night run for tea at 11:20 PM. We sat at the Diag until about 1 AM having a great talk, then talked in her room until our butts warmed up. Cold concrete is not terribly comfortable. After these outings, my demeanor improved dramatically.

Love ridden, I've looked at you
With the focus I gave to my birthday candles
I've wished on the lidded blue flames
Under your brow
And baby, I wished for you
Nobody sees when you are lying in your bed
And I wanna crawl in with you
But I cry instead
I want your warm, but it will only make
Me colder when it's over
So I can't tonight, baby
No, not "baby" anymore - if I need you
I'll just use your simple name
Only kisses on the cheek from now on
And in a little while, we'll only have to wave
My hand won't hold you down no more
The path is clear to follow through
I stood too long in the way of the door
And now I'm giving up on you
No, not "baby" anymore - if I need you
I'll just use your simple name
Only kisses on the cheek from now on
And in a little while, we'll only have to wave
No, not "baby" anymore - if I need you
I'll just use your simple name
Only kisses on the cheek from now on
And in a little while, we'll only have to wave
-- Love Ridden

I hate being depressed. It makes me want to clear out my past. Oops, there goes 64 messages from my saved-messages email folder.

I might actually enjoy being home for the summer. I bak
