So I attempted to write more in my book. That did not work out well, at all. But I did get offered the chance to write a biography for a good friend of mine. That is definitely an epic plus.

I pulled some cheats online for Scooby-Doo Night of 100 Frights. Something like that. As well as for Lego Star Wars. Yes, my son is playing video games. And I am listening to Chris LeDoux's This Cowboy's Hat.

I found a song called "North Dakota" by Chris Knight (singer, songwriter). It is...flooring. I don't know quite how to describe this song. Beautiful, haunting, raw, emotional. It is amazing.

I found her on the first warm day
The rain had washed the snow away
Went for wood and lost her way back home
And I ain’t the kind believes in ghosts
But some nights I get pretty close
When the North Dakota winter moans
When the North Dakota winter moans

You are absolutely, unconditionally, positively the most stubborn person I've ever known in my life! ~Grady Kilgore

Government Conspiracy Theories

The Philadelphia Experiment
The Philadelphia Experiment is the conspiracy theory regarding a naval military experiment at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, sometime around October 28, 1943, in which the U.S. Navy destroyer escort USS Eldridge was to be rendered invisible (i.e., cloaked) to human observers for a brief period of time. That is also referred to sometimes as Project Rainbow.

Montauk Project
The Montauk Project was alleged to be a series of secret United States government projects conducted at Camp Hero or Montauk Air Force Station on Montauk, Long Island for the purpose of developing psychological warfare techniques and exotic research including time travel. Jacques Vallée[1] describes allegations of the Montauk Project as an outgrowth of stories about the Philadelphia Experiment.

My Life is Average

Last night I heard my brother get 'The Talk'. From his 6 year old son. MLIA

Today, me and my friend were looking a Facebook group called "IF i miss 11/11/11 11:11:11 I will be pissed". She looked confused, gasped and

asked me "WHEN IS THAT?" MLIA.

Today, I jokingly asked my elderly nerdy physics teacher if he had ever been in a which he replied "back in the day, me and a couple puerto ricans would go around and cause some mischief." I will never look at him the same again. MLIA

Today, I realized that the pokemon Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres end with uno, dos, tres. I didn't know pokemon were Spanish. MLIA

Today, my mother informed me that I was conceived in China. Even though I really didn't need to know that, now I kind of want a tattoo that says "Made in China"...MLIA

Learn From My Fail

If it looks like a potato, and acts like a potato, there is the distinct possibility that it is a moldy kiwi. #LFMF

If you have an indoor/outdoor cat who likes to hunt, keep your bedroom very clean. It will make finding the rotting, dead chipmunk she hid there much easier… #LFMF

Whether your parents know you are coming home at 3 am or not, do not use a flashlight to find the lock on the door. You mother will attack you with a rolling pin. #LFMF

When licking your finger to get a smudge off your child, NEVER re-lick your finger if it turns out to be stubborn. Also, never assume just because it’s on the arm, it’s not poop. #LFMF

Text Faux Pas

Downstairs neighbor just asked me to tell people when they jump off the balcony next time not to land on her flowers

Pretending to be straight requires way more energy than I'm willing to use in this heat.

i just opened the overnight bag i packed at 2am last night. Apparently all i thought id need was a handful of quarters, mascara and one sock

Pause For (Lack Of) Thought
Fast Food | Waukesha, WI, USA

Me: “Thank you for calling [Fast Food Restaurant]. How can I help you?”
Caller: “Yea, I’m calling about the nuts you put in my son’s ice cream.”
Me: “Um, sir, we don’t sell ice cream here.”
Caller: “Yeah, you did. I came in last night.”
Me: “Sir, this is [Fast Food Restaurant]. We don’t serve ice cream here.”
Caller: “Yeah, you do. For 49 cents. And you put nuts in my son’s ice cream! I’d like to speak to your manager!”
Me: “You’re speaking to her.”
Caller: “Oh, and you said you don’t serve ice cream here?”
Me: “No sir, we don’t. I think you needed the number for [other restaurant] across the street.”
Caller: You own both the restaurants?
Me: “No sir, we don’t. We’re just us.”
Caller: *long pause* “So what kind of desserts do you sell there?”
Me: “Cinnamon Twists.”
Caller: “I hate those things. What else you got?”
Me: “Cinnamon Twists. That’s it.”
Caller: “I heard you say that! What else do you have?”
Me: “That’s it.”
Caller: *longer pause* “Well, can you concoct something for me if I came in?”
Me: “No, sir, we can’t do that.”
Caller: “Oh…”
Me: “Was there anything else you needed help with?”
Caller: “No. Just to clarify, you don’t sell ice cream?”
Me: “That’s right.”
Caller: *long pause* “You should probably hang up now.”
