(now, without anything responding to Jeff's last post! I'll remember not to do that in the future)

Tonight, after the track meet, I ate at (eerily enough) High Tech Burrito...eggh, I love that place. At least for takeout. I dunno how the service is, since I never actually eat inside the place. I admit the tacos aren't too good, but it's like comparing Ergheiz to Tekken Tag Tournament--Square DOESN'T focus on making fighting games (even though, uh, Namco also made Ergheiz), just like HTB doesn't focus on tacos as much.

Fun fact: Any food tastes good after a track meet. Even Gatorade.

And as for the meet, I did my best evar, even though my mile time was six seconds slow. I finished FIRST on my team and SECOND (by a split second) overall. I almost had the almighty Disney Movie Glory Moment there...I haven't won a race in track since...ever!

Just to beat the issue into the ground: Napster DEAD. Good riddance. I can't believe they let us increase our musical knowledge, taste, awareness, and music library for FREE. Pffft! The bastards!

And for the record, I HAVE bought more CDs ever since I got Napster. And, uh, a CD player.

The split second sneer was the one that ruined 15 years of quality burritos.

I didn't have a hell of a time at High Tech Burrito, a local chain restaurant that recently opened at our shopping center, mainly because I was comparing it to other local taco restaurants that had more flavor and better service. My mom liked it a lot, though. Eggh.

In other words, Napster has perfected their keyword blockage... I can't download ANYTHING. Suckage. I'll have to try iMesh...

All for now. Forgot everything else I was going to say.

This morning, I had one of those dreams where I thought I was dreaming, but when I noticed it, I didn't wake up. Odd.

The STAR tests ended early today, so everyone was let out for a really long break. It's like we have 2 lunch breaks today.

And I know it's not good to start conversations with James from post to post, but I just yelled "BUTTRESS" at him... not through he whole school. Nyah.

Playing Solitaire is fun, just as long as you're winning. It's the only game I've got on my VELO, so it's the only thing to keep me entertained when I finish the STAR tests. Additionally, a fellow classmate wants to play it, too, so that cuts down on my entertainment, too. This week is so slow, but it still feels like I've got so much to do...

I bet you'll agree with me on this when I say that playing a game that stars a girl and is about catching butterflies in a public place makes you look bad.

I'm listening to Rhapsody in Blue because James gave me his CD player. It's too un-repetitive for my liking.

Speaking of that, download "Kiss by a Rose" (or is it "from a Rose?") by... uh... someone. I've got it stuck in my head, and I haven't even downloaded it either.

I think lots of people are mad at me because I have a cable modem but I've only downloaded 1 GB of MP3's, because I don't use Napster often.

I'm not visiting my usual websites because I'm always writing now. I guess that's a good thing, but... ah, hell. I'll visit them now. I have the time.

Oh no, I'm on the computer with the 56K again...

Eh, I've grown to like this computer, nonetheless. It doesn't have Napster (wait, I heard Napster just died the other day...course, the source was from one of my sister's sixth grade friends, soo...), has...limited space (1.4 GIGS ALL FOR MEE!), or a CD burner. But it does have Ragnarosen/Bob on ICQ downloaded (for all my MP3 needs), as well as a bunch of MIDIs, WMVs that Windows Media Player "burned" (download the latest version, this works on computers without a CD burner!), and a ton of MvC2 tournament match footage for me to learn from. Speaking of footage, I finally beat that guy who works at the pizza place with LONG HAIR. I beat him with Storm/Cable/Doom, btw, not long hair.

Asschool, Jeff's depressed/angry/annoyed/wtf with people in general for reasons like:

1) They still think AYB/Whazzup is funny.

2) They're homophobic.

3) They don't know NOT to yell out "MOOOOO!" in the hallways.

4) They don't know when to shut up.

Whoops. I'd better stop writing, then.

My thoughts on this: If you can yell "BUTTRESSES," and give insight to people who don't want to hear it at random, then they can yell "MOOOO," and can push each other into lockers and say "fagh" and be a living Jeff K. It's THEIR way of expressing themselves!

Um, seriously, though...just IGNORE THEM. Not giving a hootin' hell about what other people do is one way to stay happy. Just look at the stoners--it's how they stay happy. Other things they do are stupid, yes, but at least they don't hate everybody else who doesn't act "smrt." I tried giving this theory in that Steph Bear paper earlier on (even though it failed miserably after I realized how AIRHEADED she was...but I still love'er). I actually laugh at some o the stoner jokes--hey, it's better than lowering my head and groaning like I was in Level 5 of PaRappa and saying "UUUUUGHGHHH......FFUCKING...MORONS..."

Speaking of Shakespeare, I'm reading "Julius Caesar" in English, and I must say that it's an amazing literary masterpiece, and--ah, crap, I can't understand half of it. My English grade is going to eat itself whole with these tests we have to take for it.

Track meet tomorrow. I get to run a mile in a circle for as fast as I can in 90+ degree weather in the equivalent of boxers and an undershirt with the words "TERRA LINDA" on them, wait a couple hours, and do it again for two more miles! Degrading...but fun. I'll see if I can break the ol' 5:15 yayay (this SinclairCspeak is getting old already. Can't we just talk like humans?)

By the way, Earthbound owns you.

Oh no, I'm on the keyboard with the bad spacebar again...

I've got a half hour before rehearsals today. As you don't know, I'm going to be Spamson (<-- heheh unintentional spelling error) in Romeo and Juliet. Not a big part, but it's the first Shakespeare play I was ever in. I am expected to have my lines memorized by 3:30... so I guess I'll type them here for my help and your enjoyment!

Gregory, on my word, we'll not carry coals.
I mean, an we be in choler, we'll draw.
I strike quickly, being mov'd.
A dog of the house of Montague moves me.
A dog of that house shall move me to stand! I will take the wall of any man or maid of Montague's.
(ARGH, gotta check the script...)

HOLY CRAP, I left my script in the drama room AGAIN. My drama teacher's gonna kill me... AGAIN. I guess I'll have to do the rest from total memory...

'Tis true, and therefore women, being the weaker vessels, are ever thrust to the wall. Therefore, I will push Montague's men from the wall and thrust his maids to the wall.
'Tis all one. I will show myself a tyrant. When I have fought with the men, I will be cruel with the maids - I will cut off their heads.
Ay, the heads of the maids, or their maiden-heads, take it in what sense tho wilt.
My naked weapon is out. Quarrel, I will back thee.
Fear me not.
Let us take the law on our sides, let them begin.
Nay, as they dare. I will bite my thumb atthem, which is a disgrace, if they bear it.
I do bite my thumb, sir.
Is the law on our side if I say ay?
No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir, but I do bite my thumb, sir.
But if you do, sir, I am for you. I serve as good a man as you.
Well, sir.
Yes, better, sir.
Draw, if you be men. Gregory, remember thy swashing blow.

Hoo, I did pretty well. I guess I won't screw up the play... not that I thought I'd ever do that. Must be going!

Well, that's that... I am permanently BANNED from the John's Anime Club. I guess since there's no chance of me getting in, I can torment John until the day he dies. ...I did mention the comic book guy from the Simpsons, right?

Well, I guess it's time to move on with my life. Although it's still a matter of principle, it was just the Anime Club. Besides, if I haven't mentioned before, there are actually 2 Anime Clubs in the school. It used to be one until John got pissed off at Aimee, the other leader, and he founded his own Anime Club. P. M. S. Then he extended it to 3 days a week instead of 1, crushing Aimee's competition. Although I admittedly like the anime that's played at John's club more, if I extended Aimee's club to 3 days a week at all, there would be a lot of competition... maybe I could even get some of my titles played.

*puts fingers together* Excellent... (woo! Two Simpsons references already! I'm on a roll! Maybe even a sourdough one!)

I have NO homework this week because of these damn STAR tests, so I was able to add 2 TFH's to, uh, TFH last night. My schedule is absolutely packed tonight, so I won't be able to do any tonight.

Horrible thought for the day: Lowtax isn't pleased upon visiting our site (RIGHT LIKE HE'D DO THAT I MUST SHUT UP HEHEHEHE) and puts us up as the Awful Link for the Day. At least we'd get popularity, though, and the forum members, seeing how MINDBLOWINGLY BRAINLESS (redundancy?) they are, they might like it.
...forgot to say I was talking about Something Awful.

The forum's still down from EZBoard's upgrade. I HATE YOU.

Well, I'm taking my time off the STAR exams to be a NURRRD and post here. We're in the middle, as I said in my last sentence, of STAR exams, which are standardized tests that determine if this school's full of morons or not. (cue laugh track consisting me laughing a million times at once)

I, of course, am doing great. I actually TRIED on reading comprehension (something I'm pretty bad at), so everything's looking pretty good for me so far. It's not like these tests will benefit me in any way, though.

I brought my VELO 1 to school today, proving I'm a NURRRD (whoopee). I can play Solitaire in my free time! And paint in 4 wonderful colors!

In other news, fellow NURRD Nick Davies is playing the most annoying South Park Shockwave game EVER. I'd complain about wasting time, but look what I'm doing right now.

That's odd... I'm still banned from Anime Club. There's a TFH about this coming soon, but the leader, John Wang (he's in the Frequently Mentioned Stuff list), still isn't letting me into the club, even after his banning for a week that started last Monday and went until Friday... I wonder why I can't go in now.

Background info: John is almost EXACTLY like the comic book guy in the Simpsons (if anyone saw it yesterday). He bans people from his store if they mildly piss him off, but he really doesn't have any friends. He's also ugly, too.

Eh. Enough complaining. I didn't check the Anime Club anyway until the last 5 minutes of lunch, so I even forgot there was any today until I passed the room.

I've really got to stop blogging so much... I'm barely ever in the computer lab at lunch. If only there was something more social (yet organized) to do...

Hufflepuff. Running 2 miles in PE is hard work. In other news, the space bar on this keyboard is near broken.

Here's my strategy for raising self-esteem: do something mindblowingly STUPID in a public place, like at school, and don't feel bad at all about it. Everyone will think you're a loser (don't tell yourself that, though), but you will feel great! I do subtle things, like not listening to today's pop songs, not dressing like everyone else, and making random outbursts of insight. People hate me for it, but especially for someone like me, it makes me feel great.


See, I just said that out loud. Ego... rising...

I was going to say something else, but the Dr.Pepper made me forget it. Oh well.

Hello. I'm writing a short test.

If you can read this, you're special.

This is your captain speaking... I'd like to inform our passengers that for the duration of your entire Untied Airlines flight from New York to Abu Dhabi, the entire flight crew will not be wearing any pants.

Thank you,

The "Dubya Airlines... Where your concern is our safety." Captain,

That really sucks. In college world, I thought it was still Spring Break. Oh well... I can always take the class over.


He's probably right, too. Speaking about Japanese, I found out that channel 8, which used to be HBO (therefore our TV doesn't go to it automatically) are now belong to Japanese! I flipped through the channels yesterday while watching TV with my good buddies (I babysit them but they do most of the caretaking... easy money, anyway), and noticed I could actually read lots of the stuff they said on channel 8. I guess this'll help me if there are any kid's shows on the channel in the morning or afternoon. Whatever...

I'm at school now. I can blog here as planned... seems like the game Black and White is pretty popular, the kid next to me won't stop talking about it. ALL FOR NOW!!!

Favorite 4/6 MP3 So Far: "Scream for the camera, Brownstein!

Dammit, the blogger deleted my post when the window refreshed (I was trying to resize the window area where you--ah, you don't care). That's why you see the "???" down there. Looks pretty lame compared to the rest of Jeff's writings, doesn't it? (remember, I'm the sad one :( :( :(

Yesterday was pretty fun. I'm too lazy to go into detail tonight (seeing that re-checking meaningless posts at Shoryuken.com while writing a wrestling match between two imaginary people for a wrestling league is more important), but here goes. I need to post more in here, anyway.

I went to Jeff's house, checked out all his 133720r2 per-iph-er-als like a digital camera, a tape recorder jack into the computer for recording, a paper shredder (?), a printer that hooks up to the digital camera cartridge. And now he's got a Playst--er, DVD player. No wonder he's so happy. :) :) :)

Then we went for Italian food, where I had a KICKASS sandwich with meatballs, and minestrone, which I tried for the first time. I couldn't help but notice that, from A Stupid Bystander's view, we looked like a young gay couple! I mean, if we were in our 20s, it'd make more sense. These days, you don't see too many guys our age eating lunch anywhere as fancy as that (read: Anywhere other than McDonalds). I tell you, it's all part of Jeff's scheme to prove that he's anti-homophobia. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Who cares about the Stupid Bystander if they don't say anything? And even if they do, why should we let it get us down for the day?

I also had Omid over. Note to all who must know: I don't hate him anymore! That paper was the product of me being pissed at the world combined with Omid being the last one I remember doing something that bugged me. We tight now.

We had a good three mile walk over to the arcade ("Back in my day, we walked three miles to play 'SF Rush 2049!'"), talking mostly about The Beatles for some reason. It doesn't really match up on the Sophisticated Meter to Jeff and I getting Italian food, but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. I'd say it's more fun at the arcade with a friend, but it's also more expensive since you're kinda forced to play racing games that end in three minutes (arctic thunder w000) for 50 cents each. Usually I'd only spend a buck or so, since MvC2 lasts about ten times as long if you're good enough. Omid isn't very good at MvC2, though, so that option went the way of the Canyon (hahe dead Fritz reference).

Speaking of MvC2, I met another guy who went to Shoryuken.com, and who rightously kicked my ass. I know now as a fact taht if you go to Shoryuken.com, you're a badass Street Fighter competitor who doesn't believe in "fair play." It's getting fun to be able to tell which ones go to SRK.com just by the way they play. Now if only that "talent" was more USEFUL.

Boy do I sound bitter tonight. I guess I was having so much fun with Spring Break that when it ended, it made me look back on it and realize how much more I could have done. Kinda like...uh...


And today...I played hockey in my dad's Marin Roller Hockey League. Goalie. I was selected to help a team that had lost horribly (13-2) to one team earlier in the season. Today we played the same team, and only lost 6-4! Still, it's a little disappointing to remember each and every goal that went by you.

But on the happier side of things...hey, I did go into detail, like I thought I wouldn't. Guess that's what journals are for.

But now I've got a match to finish writing by Monday.

[It'll take more than THAT to beat Hades, of course. The momentum's in Maliki's favor as he bounces off the ropes, and catches Hades in the jaw with a flying jalepeno! Or, a flying cross chop, whatever you wanna call it!

More stuff...

I don't want Spring Break to end yet. I know that after two weeks of Winter Break I was so bored by the end that I was ready to kill myself, but one week now just isn't enough! I feel like I could have done so much more... like studying my Japanese like I needed to (so THAT'S what I forgot to do... crap).

I also need to work on this website I'm getting paid for, Casa Fairview, which, as you can see, I've done nothing to. Double meh.

Lastly, you MUST try this goat cheese that looks lke caramel and has a really odd name with barely any vowels. It tastes REALLY good (but like anything good, it gives you gas).

Back to real life...

Well, I am now the rightful owner of a quality PS2 system. We've even replaced our old VCR with it, and we've bought a few extra peripherals, like a controller extension cord, a DVD remote control, and an S-Video cord so there's no jitteriness like usual in high resolution.

My dad's just a bit mad at Sony, though, for not including the S-Video cable with the PS2, so now we've got two unused AV cables (one from the PS1).

Now Dad's not going to let me play any PS2 for fun, though... he wants me to "get A's." Sheesh... it's not going to work forever. His restriction levels last longer than my mom's (she forgets about punishments after a day or so). I don't have any PS2 games, though, so that's an excuse for him. Whatever, I can live without it. (After all this time of wanting one, too!)

It seems that I'm still sucking up to Dad, though, even AFTER he bought the thing for me! I already did some yard work, cleaned my room, and cleaned the whole family room, too. Phew, at least I'm back on the computer *hugs monitor*...

Oh yeah, about that last post... this morning while we were waiting for Best Buy to open, we went to Gold's Gym. There, there were some new bike machines with monitors on them. Not only could you watch TV on them, but you could browse the internet, too! Now, it's hard to type normally since the keyboard is on the touch screen (and you're biking at 100 RPM while doing so), but I was able to check all my forums and webcomics while getting a workout. Dog bless technology.
