I heard something on the radio that makes me sick.

An overweight woman goes to a doctor to get a check-up. He tells her that she is clinically obese and that if she doesn't lose some weight she might die.

This women is now sueing the doctor.

No joke. Just another case of our P.C. society going off insane.I'm sorry but the guy studied the body for what 12 years of college? If anyone should be allowed to call this bitch obese it's a fucking doctor.

Here is a link to the story

Ok. So I have to turn in this paperwork for my apptment. It was actually due last friday but they said it could be a little late.

Anyway, I plan to leave work around 4:10 so I can get there to drop it off before 5. Around 4:05 a cowrker askes me to do a quick job, and I figure I have the time. Long story short I leave at 4:19. After pulling out of the company parking lot a semi truck
1) cuts me off
2) drives 3 miles/hour in a 35
3) causes me to miss my green light so I have to sit at a long red.

(Now would be a good time for me to mention to you that I forgot my paper at home so I have to drive a little out of my way.)

Anyway when the light finaly turns green I start cruzing until I hit Augusta where they are repainting lines. The have me stoped for 12 minutes before they let me by.

(Did I mention that my gas guage doesn't work so I have to get gass every 250-300 miles based on the odometer. and at this point I am at 310, but I don't have time for gas with the construction)

I get to my house to find my mother has burried my papers under a pile of crap on the kitchen table. Meanwhile I am wasting valuable moments.

I get caught behind every person who thinks that speed limits are deadly if surpased by a snails pace. I get to Kalamazoo and the streets are packed. I park at parking services and start running to the bird cage.

Meanwhile I am thinking if I get a ticket for parking there for not doing buisness and I pay the ticket within the 15minutes, shouldn't the ticket not exist because I had buisness at parking services paying it?

Anyway, I get to the doors....



I walk dejectedly back to my car, by gass and stop into 7-11. Jenny is working... She somehow has me smiling withing 30 seconds.

I'll make up for everything latertonight, my "Slurpee Whench"...

Life has been spectacular these past few weeks. Life has somehow managed to go completely beyond my every expectation.

My new apartment rules. I've entertained guests on many occasions, but I look forward to entertaining more.

I've made a ton of new friends. You all may find this hard to believe but I don't approach people well. I can be incredibly outgoing if I'm close friends with 60% of a group. These parties I've been going to these past few weeks this was definitely not the case. But I've come out of my shell so to speak, and it feels great.

As I just mentioned I have been going to a lot of parties recently. These aren't some party I read about on the net, these are personal invites (more often then not from girls :) ). I don't think I've ever been as "popular" as I am now.

I've taken up the guitar again.

I've lost over 10 lbs on the South Beach Diet and I feel like I'm a lot closer to "the stud" I was in high school. And believe me, the ladies notice.

Only two sad notes to report...
TBW is down possibly for good because the idiots that run it can't their shit together.
I think I might have mono- but after the last couple of weeks I should be glad I haven't contracted worse.

Oh and I almost forgot my last bit of good news...

I need to learn to stop giving mixed signals.

In the words of the great one...

"We don't love you, hoes"

Perfect Situation
Once Again I have found myself in song...

"What's the deal with my brain?
Why am I so obviously insane?
In a perfect situation
I let love down the drain.
There's the pitch, slow and straight.
All I have to do is swing
and I'm the hero, but I'm the zero.

Hungry nights, once again
Now it's getting unbelievable.
'Cause I could not have it better,
But I just can't get no play
From the girls, all around
As they search the night for someone to hold onto.
I just pass through..."

Seriously though... my life is going great... I only wish I had as much luck as I have oportunities for happiness... I've been bating about 100 this past month...

(by the way I'm skipping the third verse because it cuts a little close...)

"Tell me there's a logic out there.
Leading me to better prepare
For the day that something really special might come.
Tell me there's some hope for me.
I don't wanna be lonely
For the rest of my days on the earth."

Does anyone believe in precognition?

I recently had a dream about a girl that I probably haven't thought of for about a year (she was first fox freshman year)...

I saw her at St. Toms today and we talked for a while... It was fun.

bonus for anyone who guessses who I am talking about.

Double bonus for her last name (which I have forgoten).

The inevitable happened this morning.

I woke up to the sound of my cell ringing.
It was my mother calling.
She was calling from home.
I realize that "home" is not where I ended up last night.
Yeah.... bad and good times...

19 more days until I can wake up (and sleep) wherever the fuck I want.

I got my appt... Stadium Appt # 485.. and It's vacant now so I can move in whenever I want to start having to pay rent... I'm leaning toward August 12th... I just need to find a rational to tell my parents why I would like to move out as early as possible...

Somehow I think "I want to be able to have my friends sleep over, or want to sleep at my friends without you knowing" wont go over well.

It never fails.

I have a habit of not taking my faith seriously. However, it has been there when I needed it most. This morning I was in a bad state (as I have been for quite a few hours previous) but Sunday morning mass helped me put things in perspective.

God has a plan for each of us.

In God's plan, I will not be living in West Campus Appts. I'm sorry for how I have treated you (Amanda and Jeeber). I realize now that I was just being selfish. I'm sorry for all of the negitive conversations that have plauged our relationships in the past months. I hope time will mend what this unfortunate situation has broken.

In God's plan, Michelle and I will not live happily ever after. I am way to dependant for her. She is a little to independant for me. I am sorry Michelle, for coming into your life and expecting things to just be better. I'm sorry for putting pressure on you to do things you didn't want to do, and not to do things that you did. I'm sorry for so many things. I hope we can still be friends, someday. But for now I have a disease (dependancy) and I cannot allow myself to hurt you (or me) anymore then I already have.

In God's plan I will be a better person. I'm sorry Jason. For the past few months you have been my scapegoat. It was easy and convienient for me to blame you for all of my problems. You haven't done anything that I myself wouldn't (and haven't) done. I will try to take resposibilty from now on.

I'm sorry God. I have tried (stupidly) to make my life the way I want it. I don't know what is best for me, as you do. My faith is in you completely.

And to everyone else...
"Jesus and I love you."

Please call me sometime... I get so bored here in Galesburg. You know what Yoda (in episode 1) would say.
"Boredom leads to jealousy.
Jealousy leads to suffering.
Suffereing leads to rage.
Rage leads to the Dark Side."

but then again Episode 3 taught me the Dark Side leads to sex with Natile Portman....

Here's to getting your ass grabbed by females you don't know (8 Blondes, 2 Brunettes, and 1 red head, maybe I've been barking up the wrong tree my whole life).
Here's to hearing Bon Jovi, Sir Mix-A-Lot, and Rick Springfield on the mighty piano.
Here's to Britney, Julia and of course... I'm pretty sure she said her name was "Flora".

Here's to feeling alive.
Here's to drinking away one's problems.
Here's to Gillian.
