Picture & things

I just put a ridiculously ugly picture of me in my profile. Enjoy.

Also, I linked a couple of my friends' blogs. Only Losers Blog may not update ever, but the one post there is hilarious. Justin the Computer Geek, on the other hand, updates with geekish fervor, but it's rarely funny. Ahh... the juxtaposition of opposites.

EDIT: Added John Pauer's rather amusing blog, Catalytic Superfluous Yes (It sounds like a spam title to me.)

People are Less Intelligent than they look. (No mean feat)

A lady came into the grocery store that I work at over the weekend. She wanted to return a dozen eggs. It seemed that the bagger had put them on top of a thing of warm chicken.

The reason she wanted to return the eggs: She was worried that they might hatch.

Everquest II

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to EQII. I'm going to try to find a midnight release somewhere and go with my friend Joe. Which is double awesome, cause not only do I get to get EQII, but I get to hang out with Joe late at night/early in the morning, and if any of you have ever done that, you know how amusing it is.

But seriously, folks, EQII is going to be freaking sweet. I downloaded the trailer that they made for E3, and it's ridiculously cool. To dl your own copy click here and then click the "download" button under the Watch Trailer section. (Ok, maybe a little self-explanatory, but you never know.)

Also, if anybody's already getting the game, and is interested in joining a guild, e-mail me and let me know. A bunch of us are making one, and we can use as many members as possible.

I've got nothing.


So, as I write this I'm sitting in the general use computer lab at school. (UW-Whitewater, in case anyone didn't know.) There's this guy who sat down two computers away from me (There are like two dozen other computers open that are nowhere near anyone else.) who's listening to crap (the kind that's usually spelled without the c) on his headphones, so ridiculously loud that I cna actually understand the sexually explicit lyrics without even straining. This, needless to say, is really freaking annoying. This brings me to my main point: I AM SITTING RIGHT HERE, PUNK!

Honestly, I'm a jerk, but my particular brand of jerkness pretty much extends to jokes towards my friends, and targeted uses of jerkness at things I don't like. I prefer not to, say, blare music in the computer lab two freaking feet away from the "Quiet, please. People are studying." sign. And, even if I did, it wouldn't be (c)rap, and especially not (c)rap with offensive lyrics. Honestly, people, I may occasionally enjoy something offensive every now and then, (For instance, I have a pretty bad joke about a blind kid, but that's another topic entirely.) but I don't blare my offensiveness in a public place, especially in one where it would be polite to be quiet, because I'm trying to freaking study. (Okay, I'm writing this blog now, but I was studying.)

That is all.

Crap: The Blog

Ok, so I'm tired of ranting to myself in my own head. So, maybe no one will read this at all, but I get to type out how angry at all of the stupid crap of the world I am. And that works for me.

And now, something funny that happened today:

So, I went to the state Magic tournament this weekend. (Okay, that's neither the funny thing, nor something that happened today, but it's necessary for the setup.) I stated this fact to a co-worker of mine today. His reply: "Dude, you're a magician?"

I said, "Magic: The Gathering. It's a card game. I went to a tournament for a card game."

His response: "Can you do my birthday party?"

I said, "Yeah, I have this great trick where I pull money out of your wallet."

It's not that I hate people, just that they're idiots.
