Sorry for the wait.

I’ve been fairly busy lately, and I haven’t thought to post.  Vacation is over, and I’m back in school now.  I have a History 154 project due Thursday that I’ve barely started, my family tree project is due May 3rd, and I have a research paper for English to get started on.  Also, I have homework for my S.A.T. prep class: one entire S.A.T. …because I have 3 hours and 45 minutes to spare…  Anyway, I should get going on my history project; don’t expect a new post for a while.

“When the going gets tough, the tough get naked.”

narrator #1, “Real Men of Genius” (Bud Light)

Ignoring all reason, web site building guidelines, and copyright laws, I have bestowed unto thee a jukebox (Windows Media Player) playing Bud Light radio advertisements that I found on iMesh back when I used iMesh (before WinMX).  Please enjoy.

Last night I went to Forrest’s house, we (me, Forrest, Brian, Rob, Jason, and Aaron) stayed up all night chillin’ by a bon fire, wandering around a town-owned lot, and shooting cans with a BB gun.  Much to Jason and Aaron’s dismay, there was no alcohol at the party, which is probably one reason they left at 11:00.  ...Well, no alcohol for us anyway...  The girls (Forrest’s sister and three of her friends) had snuck some Peach Schnapps and weren’t sharing.  I think I was the only one who noticed; they’re lucky I don’t drink, or I would have said something.  Despite my post title, there was no nudity at the party (besides Forrest walking only about 10 feet from the fire to take a piss).  I think the girls like making fun of us more than they actually like us.  I used to have a small crush on Forrest’s sister, but that went away after I found out how psycho she is.  Anyway, I still get harassed for it.  “Clark, stop looking at Taylor’s ass!”  I think she actually believes that I still like her... weird.  Maybe she has an ego problem and can’t understand how anyone could not like her.

Earlier today (at about 11:00), Forrest, Brian, Rob and I went to the Dinner Bell (a really good diner here in Frewsburg).  Brian and Rob both got the special giant-ass pancake and nothing else.  Neither of them could finish the damn things!  Pansies!  I had a medium pancake (which is one size smaller) and a medium order of home fries, and I finished my plate (or plates, rather).  Forrest had the omelet meal (and finished it) and helped the pansies with their pancakes.  At least some of us are real men!  <!-- I’m so full I think I need to lay down! -->  Afterwards, Forrest and Rob (who didn’t finish his meal) went down to the Igloo (ice cream place) for slushies.  Brian went home to nap, and I picked on him on the way there.

Anyway, I think it’s time for me to go lay down in my room and watch the shows I taped last night (Smallville, MythBusters, and South Park).  Later.

“Excuse me, is your refrigerator running? Because if it is, it probably runs like you - very homosexually.”

Peter Griffin, Family Guy

Behold! I am 1337!  I have written a new program for my TI-83 Plus, a line-segment grapher.  You may save the worshipping for a later date.

I suppose it’s time for another Easter Vacation update.  Nothing much happened today... I got up at 7 o’-fuckin’-clock this morning.  No reason, I just had my road test today!  I’m not certain how, but I passed.  My Certificate of Completion (Driver’s Ed.) had the wrong last name, I failed to signal three times, and I had “excessive space for parking.”  Also, he marked one instance of “fails to adequately observe/use caution” which is total bullshit.  I was almost too cautious, I left ample parking space, I... uh... it’s kinda hard to defend three instances of not signaling, but they were totally called for!  Anyway, the guy was 31 minutes and 35 seconds late, and a very rude bastard, I might add!  If you’re out there Examiner #501, you suck!  ...and thanks for passing me...

Barneé sleeping on couchIn other news, my dog is still sick.  The mutt’s been throwing up since she ate her red ball, and we can’t give her people food.  I know I’m going to start gaining weight now; I always share my meals with her.  ...Maybe that’s why she’s been throwing up... oh well.  Until we meet again.

■ The stylesheet and many of the scripts are now hosted remotely to shorten load times, reduce bandwidth use, and become more standards-compliant.  Also, sometimes Blogger takes the line breaks out of my home page.  This doesn’t affect (X)HTML or well-formed JavaScript and CSS, but my JavaScript is rarely well-formed, so perhaps remote-hosting would be the best idea.  (I bet Bravenet doesn’t have any problems preserving line breaks.)

“If at first you don’t succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.”

No date for the prom yet, and all of you are evidence...  So if I see you before you see me, look out!  (That’s a quote from Red vs Blue.  [I forget which episode.]  I really don’t expect anyone to get it, besides Mark.)  Any way, Easter Vacation started, and I’ve got some homework to be doing that probably isn’t gonna get done.

“Most intelligent leftists understand that blind acceptance of all things is as tyrannical as pure fascism.”  (Take that Mark!)  I YaGoohoo!gle-d “anti-hippie” and found this site: The Anti-Hippie Action League.  These people are geniuses!  Read the Counter-Hippie Tactics.  From a hippie hate-mail letter: “There are reasons why hippies are the way they are.  Trees give you life.  Once all the screw-ups ruin them all, and you can’t breathe, then we’ll see how much you hate trees.”  My response: What the fuck?  You dipshits are smoking all of the trees!  Another hippie hate-mail ends in: “See you later, you spawn of Satan.”  My response: Aren’t you people (and I use that term loosely) supposed to be accepting of everybody’s beliefs?  We are the anti-Satanists, not you!  One final hippie hate-mail excerpt: “Would you condemn Jesus?”  My response: Jesus was not a hippie!  Jesus actually helped people, rather than getting high and moshing.  I’ll admit that his hair looks hippie-ish, but long hair alone does not make a hippie.
Expect a link to this and possibly other anti-hippie sites to appear on my sidebar very soon.

Here at study hall again

I am bored out of my mind...  I love it!  The CD-ROM drive in this Windows 98 piece-of-shit [Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)] refuses to stay closed.  I opened it during start-up (clearly a mistake) and it keeps opening itself.  My solution? tape.  A few strips of Scotch Tape solved my problem.  (Actually, my first solution was violence.  When slamming the drive shut didn’t help, I resorted to tape.)  I must go now, later.

Study Hall

Guess where I am right now... Study Hall.  I know I should be doing homework or something, but this is my first study hall in a long time, so I’m here in the library monkeying around.  I brought a Portable Firefox disc [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050223 Firefox/1.0.1] and decided to abandon... *shudder* ...Internet Explorer.  Unfortunately I am using IE right now [Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)] because Firefox is being a pain in the ass and won’t load Blogger or NewEgg.  It must be the damned filter or something...  Anyway, it’s almost time to go, so I guess here ends my post.

Fight Night: Round 2

Fight Night: Round 2 from EA Sports

The fight continued yesterday (Friday) after school.  This time Kacie pushed Felicia to the ground and kicked her.  A much shorter, yet more violent skirmish.  The crowd was bigger this time partly because we all expected it and partly because Hannah P. told everyone that it would occur at the same time and same place.  The fact that both Kacie and Felicia were in all of their classes (including the English class that they share) really pisses me off.  When Joe T. and Ben L. got into a tiny fight in the cafeteria last year, they immediately received three days of I.S.S. (In School Suspension).  I will add that the fight resolved itself, and before any teacher arrived, they were sitting together, eating and being merry.  I can’t comprehend how Kacie and Felicia got away with it.

In happier news, as of Monday, I have a Study Hall.  Hooray!  No more Parenting!  Now I can get some work done during school hours to leave me with more time to play the game I just rented, (No it’s not Fight Night: Round 2.) it’s GoldenEye: Rogue Agent from Blockbuster.  Their new one-week-late-and-you-buy-it policy is actually pretty cool.  I get two weeks of FPS mayhem for $6.99, and I buy the game for $23.00 more (a total of $29.99).  Due to my lack of funds, I will not be buying this excellent game, but I’m glad the option is there.
