I’ve never been able to post for an entire month straight, but I have gotten close. All it takes is one day too busy or one lame DP for the chain to be broken. I’ve tried to achieve one month of daily posts, but there is always something that comes up and once it is no longer intact I give up. Any blogger who manages to post every day impresses me, and anyone who posts multiple items a day astounds me.

The most elaborate meal I’ve ever made was probably either a sandwich or something with pasta. I’m not kidding. When school is out I make a lot stuff like this, but when school is in I don’t make anything at all. My meal plan dried up at the beginning of the year, so I have been reliant on others who need to use theirs up. Right now everyone is divided between people in my situation and people in the other. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving as all Americans know, but the day after that will just be leftovers and nothing I actually make.
I remember this one from Sunday school too many years ago than I would like to think of.
The whole thing seems like an elaborate conspiracy to make Christianity look lame.
Recently our campus launched a radio station. Right now it’s a podcast series on Sound Cloud, but there is a five year plan to grow it into a professional broadcasting radio. Anyway the whole idea is that its for the students by the students, and I decided to have a go with a show. My idea was “what grinds my gears” where I go off on stuff that annoys me. In the podcast I described it as “stupid shit,” and the DJ told me I couldn’t say that word. I proceeded to ask if I could say a bunch of different swears, and each one he said I couldn’t and they were bleeped out. This was his idea, not mine. After that bit I went on to about two things that annoy me, the first was people who call Family Guy “The Family Guy” and the second was people who call Fred Meyer “Fred Meyer’s,” something I talked about here:https://djgarcia94.wordpress.com/2014/09/23/what-is-the-name-of/. The higher-ups wouldn’t approve the podcast being posted, because A)gratuitous language and B) too much negativity. I’m still glad I tried because it was worth a shot.

You really make my day. Every I tune into Ancient Aliens and see your awful spray tan hair meticulously styled to look unkempt I smile. Best of all is that pre-Columbian airplane lapel pin that totally isn’t just a stylized insect. Nothing brightens my day then when I watch a new episode every week to see what new thing you’ll pull out of your ass next. Sure the others are amusing, but none compare to you.

There are many points in my life that are easy to romanticize about. Some of those points are well defined periods with a definitive beginning and end though often overlap. Notable examples would be my first Boy Scout troop, my second troop, my youth group, and my time at junior college. Each one were great in there own way, but the people of the collective experience move on and it becomes time for me to as well. Sometimes I look back and wish I could go back, but I realize that those days are over and that all there is to it. Besides all of those times had downsides. Honestly the most fulfilling time in my life is right now.
No marketing gimmick annoys me more than the Disney Vault. For as long as I can remember every Disney tape movie ever has had promoted this idea that all of their classic films are kept lock and key in a physical vault, and each of them are periodically released for a limited amount of time before being put back in. That bullshit is nothing more than a way of creating urgency to consumers to go out there and buy a copy while they still can. All the Disney VHS tapes I grew up with made those claims, but they all left the vault again during the DVD era and once more during the current Blu-Ray era. I know the being put in the Disney Vault is just a code for “not making any more copies for the time being,” but its fun to imagine breaking into the vault and freely dishing the movies to all.
Seriously, I can’t think of anything I’ve ever gotten that wasn’t store bought. Nothing. I’ve had plenty of nice gifts that were weren’t made, but those don’t make for particularly interesting stories.
“Oh I love this were did you get it?”
“I bought it.”
“Where did you buy it at?”
“It doesn’t matter because I didn’t make it. I just saw it and thought you’d like it.”
Tomorrow evening I will be leaving for a school prayer retreat. The event will be held at the campus retreat center where my creative writing class went for a writing workshop last month. I will be back on Sunday evening. Interesting there will be a second creative writing workshop held on Wednesday, and this time I plan to stay the night as do many others who didn’t last time. The retreat center is really awesome so it’ll be pretty cool getting to go their twice within a week.
