Funniest Thing I've read in a long time

Sometimes it’s better if you don’t ask questions. I made the mistake of asking my girlfriend if I looked fat in my new jeans. She said ‘No’, but I could tell she was lying. Women - I’m beginning to wonder why it is I am attracted to them in the first place; they’re practically good for nothing. When was the last time your woman did something nice for you?

They leave the toilet seat down, which is almost impossible to lift, they sit around all day and watch soap opera’s, and they take us nowhere! The whole thing just makes me want to have a good cry.

Why can’t women understand where we’re coming from? Is it too much to ask to hear the words ‘I love you, honey’ once in a while? I don’t think so; I think I deserve that kind of affection.

You know the saying ‘If I had breasts I’d never leave the house’? Well I do have breasts, they’re attached to my girlfriend, and I run from the house daily. If it’s not one thing it’s another. ‘Do this, do that, clean this, cook that,’ it’s enough to drive a man crazy. I have to shave everyday to please my girlfriend, and it’s never enough.

All the really great women are gay anyway

Is there something that you are trying to say
Don't hold back now
It's been a long time since I felt this way
So don't hold back now

I purposely forgot about
Loving anyone
Cause I'm the only one who has
Who has been stepped upon

Is there something that you are trying to say
Cause I can take it
Cause I grew up a man this way
And if I'm hurt I'll shake it

I'll crawl back into my cave
That's how I'll make it
Cause out of all this hurt we have
Beauty thus become
Beauty thus become

In the mourning I can see the sights
No wonder I could never keep you satisfied
In the mourning I can see inside
Myself and all the things that you were trying to hide

Wishing all the best for you
And now I will say goodbye
Cause all the shit that we've been through
Put wisdom in my eyes

So walk away, don't turn around
Cause I won't be standing here
Cause all the lies that I've been living through
Are becoming very clear
And beauty thus become

Then you conned me into thinking
That all I had was you
The small insinuations
Were cutting me through
Cutting me through

And now I stand alone here
Stronger than before
And I'll never go back
Never go back
Never go

Jungle boogie...jungle boogie......get down say ughhh say ugghhhh...get down...get down...

CapnLoser and NopaNopa took me to a wedding this weekend. The bride was not just beautiful but super-georgous; I was in awe. Nopa sang, 'a lot', we all drank at the post party, it was a long-ass weekend, the usual fighting and crying went on the day after Thanksgiving, I forget everything, and did I mention I had a great time with da boys this weekend?! Damn, I think JoFish was right, I am schizophrenic. JoPhishy, I hate it when you make sense---what am I, like 0 and 6 million now?! Fuck fuck fuck motha motha fuck.....damn it.

Ditka, Ditka

I'm sitting in front of Joey's computer screen, trying to formulate the right words to describe my slightly antagonistic, slightly flaccid, non-affable behavior last night. I'm so hackneyed and frustrated with the entire “third roommate doesn’t give a shit about us” deal. I get nauseous when her name is brought into the conversation now. I can’t live with someone who consistently mocked Bumstead and I until we told her we didn’t appreciate that (because to ridicule and belittle people is hilarious and certainly needs to be continued----sarcasm). Who we asked as politely and courteously as we could possibly ask, “We do not want Rico to spend the night anymore during the week, can you respect that?” Does she have any trepidation concerning our wishes? Guess not. Bumstead and I have unwillingly served as doormats for the last two months and I think the heel of her disrespect has finally separated our “WELCOME’s”. But in the last four days, in preparation for the big event, where she must sign a contract stating that he may never spend the night in our room again, Bumstead and I have become one powerful bitch. For example, she will sign that contract or Rico WILL BE banned from the building. There are no exceptions, no yielding, and no conceding, this WILL happen.

We debated about Capital Punishment last night as well. Which, just the focus itself, is most likely a massive contributory to my somewhat atrocious manners. I despise deliberating over something I feel so strong about because I really tend to ingest and dish out a whole lot of anger and frustration; especially when I feel like my stance is being crushed between two advocates and I’m starting to choke on their “I think we won” proclamations. Cockiness cuts real deep around the sensitive areas like CP, but I don’t blame them for doing it. They were defending a point of view that I have no interest of even acknowledging exists, and they had no idea how personal it was. It was just a topic that all of us could be involved in, whether it be CJ or not, I have to learn not to take things so personal.

WMU Dining Services

My Philosophy TA was so lonely today. I walked to my PHIL200 lab at 3pm today and saw that there was no one in the room, so I was like "hey I didn't go to the lecture this morning, maybe I missed the announcement that all labs were cancelled---sweet". I'm all chipery and smiley thinkin that we didn't have class when my TA swings open the door in a mad rush to get to class. I stood at the door for a minute, then headed back to the room. I felt so bad, out of thirty some people, I was the only one who showed up. He gave me my CRE from last week and he's like "we'll wait 3 minutes, then I gotta go work on a paper". It was soooo depressing...he's a good guy but he doesn't really explain himself, which may be the source of the problem.

I wanted to throw some debatable issues on the table so he'd have somethin interesting to talk about for three minutes but I drew a blank. And by the time I could conjure up a premise, he told me I could leave. How awful is that?! Almost makes you wanna go to class from now on..........I said almost. :-)

Check out Bumstead's post if you really wanna know the general aura of our dorm room
Can you hand me a Blue?!

I have the bestest friend's in the world. This weekend was the famous Western vs. Central rival football game so Sobe, Sobe's borther, Sobe's best friend, Jellybeem and my little brother came up. Friday night was out of control. All of us piled into my truck and headed over to Sobe's brother's best friend's house (if you get that) to party for a little while and then we were supposed to go over to another house after that. We had such a good time at Adam's (the guy I discribed in the previous sentence), laughing and teaching her brother to dance, god that was funny. But I made a mistake, I was a horrible hostess and to those who know what I'm talking about, I am so sorry.......I'm really not thinking sometimes....I should have known better....I'm so sorry. I picked everyone up at Adam's and Sobe, Jellybeem, my little bro and I all went back to the dorms at like 4am.

My sweet roommate had like 10 people over all drinking and being incredibly loud and rude to my guests, so at 430am I had to call CapnLoser and Balki4evr and beg them to let us stay at their place.....speaking of which, I am beyond grateful and in total debt to them, they are so amazingly awesome---Thanks guys. We got up at 11 and drove back to my dorm room once again and then headed out to tailgate with the other cajillion people in the parking lot of the rec. We met up with Sobe's bro and his friend, had a beer, talked, Bumstead had ketchup thrown all over the back of her sweatshirt, all of us had a least a spot of beer on our shirts/sweatshirts, and then we headed off to WillCall to pick up tickets.

We sat in the end zone bleachers during the game due to the massive combined hangover we all seemed to display. At half time, we caught JPD's show on the field, then Bumstead, my bro and I all went over to Balki4evr and Capnloser's place to help prepare for the enormus dinner we were planning and Sobe and Jellybeem to my bro's car and drove to Jellybeem's cousin's place at K College. As soon as the three of us got to CapnLoser and Balki4evr's place, CapnLoser took us to Hardings to get some alcohol. We bought some wine and 12 of soon as we got back, we cracked open a bottle and didn't stop drinking till 11 or so. (keep in mind we got over there at 530ish) Anyway, so my mommy comes over with 9 other people and is blown away by Balki4evr and CapnLoser's cooking was so good-----Quesidila's (sp?), homemade salsa (mmmm sooo delicious), sishkabob's (sp?) and scumptous rice.

The night continued as all of us college students (1 high school) proceeded to drink ourselves silly, as everyone else watched. We sang (Balki4evr leading with his astonishing voice and guitar playage --->that's not a word oh well) together, it was so cool. My mom's friends ended up leaving at 8ish and she decided to stay and drink with us. CapnLoser kept trying to feed her more wine but she was a little tipsy so she smiled and shook her head no.....Ahhh I'm so glad everyone got to get drunk with my moms, she so awesome to hang out with....

So we all pretty much passed out by midnight----I got up this morning and cleaned their house for em, it was a little dirty but whatever, it's my duty to treat them like God's for the next week, not that I haven't already before but this time they know it. :-) Sobe and Jellybeem had stopped by last night to eat but decided not to stay which was cool cause it does kinda suck to hang out at a party where everyone's already inebriated and you're completely sober. We met up with those two back at the dorm around 1pm on Sunday. My little bro needed to get home so Bumstead and I lead them out to Mobil on 94 and said our goodbye's and sorry's and thank you's out there. This weekend was so cool; aside from my dumbness and complete disregard for my guests on Friday night, my roommate's total disrespect and lack of concern for the welfare of her own roommates, the whole weekend was "super excellent sweet" (in the words of Sobe and Jellybeem).

So to end this long ass post, I like to leave you with thee qoute of the weekend :
Some guy standing behind us during the gynormus tailgate party: "whoops I'm sorry I think I grabbed your ass"
I just stood there and looked at him, you know the "why are you touching me you dirt ass" look.
He turned me around and was like "look at her ass, doesn't she have a nice ass?! Yo guy, don't you think she has a nice ass?!"
My little brother----with a straight face--: "that's my sister"

He really didn't touch my ass, I just cushened his fall with my side and most of my right arm.

Howard Johnson

I'm on the outside looking in at something I thought was there. I touched the glass and screamed at the scene playing before my eyes but the sound never permeated the wall. When did I lose control? ---A passage I remember reading

And Jen , you're always welcome with any of us anytime.

Wednesday, November 14, 2001


There's a crack between my desk and the wall and I keep dropping things in it. Losing stuff sucks. I lost my keys once and I almost went insane trying to find them. After "rearranging" my dorm room, I noticed that they were in my back pocket all along. You know what else is good to keep in your back pocket? Your wallet. My "wallet" consists of three credit cards, a student ID, my license, my insurance and registration, and a copy card I found at the library. I don't usually go to Waldo's though. Now, I tend to go to the education library in Sangren to study for Criminal Justice. The readings for cj are on reserve there -- they help us to understand the theories put forth by all of our required criminologists. For example, I went there last Sunday to study Howard Becker and for my exam last Monday. I wanted to skip today but my prof would have known I wasn't there if I didn't pick up the test. So I left for class today at like 945am and I saw two squirrels fighting. It was so funny, they were jumpin off walls and poles and stuff. This other guy found it quite amusing as well cause he laughed but then he said "I so need sleepy". Then I laughed some more. It was funny. :-)

My mom and dad, dillweeder, grandma and my uncle's family, all came to my grandma's club for brunch last sunday. My mom and dad at one point during the pre-course conversation, were engaged in an frickin hilarious temper tantrum. I had mentioned somethin about visiting my mom in Battle Creek this weekend to see her do her horseback riding dealy thing, and my dad pulled a Stone Cold "WHAT?!" My father jumped into a notsoflaming pit of frustration for a second and said that in non-coercive, nonchalant, and in other words all out attempt to get the right answer without causing a massive interrogation scene, my family simply states our intentions to he who is the proper authorizing figure and quickly and quietly scan for a reaction then jet off. That's it. We all do the same thing. So my dad, sarcastically wide eyed and smiling looks at my mom and says "I'm going to Kalamazoo this weekend and Jack and I are gonna get stupid." He raises his hands chin level and waits for a reaction from my mom. Three seconds later he looks at me in big smiles and says "alright!!"

Annoyed and in retort to my mom's mumbles, my dad said "grrrr it's never a question with you people, only a statement I'm supposed to react to." It was my clever uncle who jumped in to defend us....."well when they do it to you, you don't actually say no." At that point I looked at my dad in the chair next to me and just laughed for five minutes.

Oh yea

And now JoFish and Bumstead have something to make fun of me about........she heard me mumbling in my sleep today.
Whatcha gonna do

I don't really like how choppy my last blog was, but I'm so tired and at this point I really don't care.

I woke up this morning at 630am and drove back to WMU. I almost fell asleep on the road a few times so I stopped just outside of Jackson to get something to wake me up. I got a Cappuccino and a hundred grand chocolate candy thing which woke me up a wee bit. Then, I got to school and I am still exhausted. I fell asleep at 1ish, still sitting up in bed, then Bumstead came back from her class at 3 and I fell asleep again. At about 530, I got up and went to eat a lovely turkey dinner at the cafe with Bumstead. Yum. My fourth roommate must leave. I can't stand it. He's here, 24 hours a day. I am not joking. Alll FRICKIN DAY........he must be shot....err not really cause I would never wish death upon anyone but yall know what I mean......which is not death....yea....time for sleep and the OP.....yea.........k.......this is an awkward moment I'm having with my computer......Ah purple monkey, tell me a joke.....
My sister is the cutest thing ever

Dilweeder, Diller, PookerJill, JillBill, Jillweed, J bird, or Jillybean, as we like to call her, ask me of all our thousands of family members to be her sponsor. I was so honored, I drove home after my 2 oclock, made it in by 545, jumped in the shower, and made it to the church by 630. Last night she was confirmed into the Catholic church/faith at 7pm, and she chose my middle name as her confirmation name. She is so cute. When I was confirmed, oh a good what 5 or 6 years ago, I stole her middle name for my confirmation name and afterthat my sister has been telling me she was gonna take mine. AH excuse my incohertness, I haven't had much sleep since yesterday....I got up this morning at 630am to drive back and go to class for two hours and I'm whipped. Well I guess that's my cue to make like a tree and scram.......I'll prolly read over this later and spit out corrections in another update (above)...check me out---I'll write more when I wake up.

Sunday Night

Chicago. The Bears came back from a 21-7 lead by the Browns, to win the game in overtime all within the last 10 seconds. We were in Ditka's resturant at the time. That's all I have to say. Oh and.....Chicago day trips are so fuckin cool.

Saturday Night:

"Hey Jack what's up?!"
"Nuffin Ry, what's goin on?"
"hey wanna drive down to Three Rivers with me to pick up somin"

"So are we goin to Three Rivers?"
"Nah Jay, I decided not to go"
"Yea, I wasn't really in the mood to drive"
"Hey wait, Ry, wanna go to chicago?"
"uhh ok. I'm in."

(Jay went over to Jon & Ryan's)
"No!! You can't go to ChiTown without me!" -Jon
"Why don't you come with us?" -Jay
"I have to work" -Jon
"Well we could drive up the coast..what do you think Ry?" -Jay
"Aight" -Ry
"Nah let's not do that....." -Jay
"Windsor?" -Ry
"Nah" -Jay
"Indianapolis?! Indiana is right down 69" -Ry
"Let's do it"


"Ok no. Ft. Wayne sounds nice" -Jay
"aight" -Ry

We drove 2 hours (100 miles) for dinner and a look around Ft. Wayne. The people we talked to at Casa Grille where we ate, seriously did not even believe us when we said we drove two hours just for dinner. It was a damn good dinner though. I'd like to go again, if we can find it. I love college. :-)

Have you ever...

Last night, I was thinking about color schemes for the apartment that Sobe526 and I are gonna live in next year, where ever it's gonna be. I dig the Ethan Allen look; the cherry or oak wood and bright, DDP's teeth like white, it's nice. I dig the vibrant colors like firey red and electric blue too; the wood color has got to be there too though.

That's pretty much it. I'm tired, I don't think I'll go to class today. Eh, maybe I'll change my mind in 45 minutes. Yea maybe I'll go, I'm a good kid. :)
