Does anyone care that I haven’t posted anything since January?

It is hard

To make homemade Chinese food.


January 27th, 2007

I saw a Simpson’s episode where Homer called his trampoline a “tramapoline” so for a long time if someone said trampoline, I felt compelled to say tramapoline. I am trying very hard to stop doing this because some of the people who are around me a lot have grown tired of this tramapoline stuff. On a side note, I came home and saw that the trampoline was heavily weighed down with snow. Turns out it wasn’t snow, it was ice. Getting all that ice off the trampoline was a lot freakin’ harder than I thought it would be.

Thomas Dewey

January 26th, 2007

I was reading an article about Thomas Dewey who ran for president against FDR in 1944 and again against Truman in 1948. That’s the one with the famous picture of Truman holding up the “Dewey Defeats Truman” newspaper. If you don’t know much about it Truman won when everyone thought Dewey would win. Dewey didn’t campaign very hard he just sat back and tried very hard not to do anything to cost him votes. The Louisville paper summed up his campaign like this:

No presidential candidate in the future will be so inept that four of his major speeches can be boiled down to these historic four sentences: Agriculture is important. Our rivers are full of fish. You cannot have freedom without liberty. Our future lies ahead.

I find that amusing.

Detroit Lions

October 9th, 2006

Yesterday the Lions snatched defeat from the jaws of victory once again and a strange thing happened. I didn’t care. I had no emotional reaction to the loss. The Lions have finally done it. They’ve placed me in a state of apathy. I no longer have the energy to invest anything in the team. How sad is that?

When you think about it, peas are really not all that exciting.

Suicidal Bug

October 4th, 2006

So the other day I made a cup of coffee and set down on the counter. A small bug, not sure what kind, not a fly either. One of those bugs that you see but you don’t know what it is. It flew down toward the coffee and then landed on the lip of the cup. I thought “Phew, it didn’t go in” and then the little bugger jumped off the edge and into the coffee.



September 20th, 2006

OK, so I’m determined right now to write about something that happened yesterday. The only thing that comes to mind immediatly is nothing. Then I thought about this dream I had the other night where I was in this dark tunnel, so dark that light was literally being sucked away. It was “Beyond Dark” and it was a terrifying place but I knew I didn’t have to be scared. Then there was this room with books all over and a glowing green circular thing and a box. But that seemed to existential for me to discuss in this blog. So instead I thought I’d talk about the rain.

Yesterday the rain was kind of hanging in the air. It wasn’t like it was coming down, it was just kind of there and when you walked through it you got wet.

Constitution Day

September 18th, 2006

I did nothing to celebrate the Constitution on Constitution Day. I must be a bad American.

When war was first fought:

The weapons were rocks in the pockets

When wars are fought now:

The weapons are pox in the rockets.
