Keeping... very... still...

Here I sit in my little corner of the dining room upstairs, in my usual seat with my usual headphones on my usual laptop. Everything is the same except for one minor detail... the blinds that usually separate me from the window to my left and therefore the outside world are completely missing. When I peek out I see blackness and my reflection, but I know if it were light out I would be able to see the house across the yard from ours. All their lights are out, so they're probably sleeping, but it's kinda creepy to think that they could totally see me if they wanted to. Heck, if all the lights are out in my house, I get a little creeped out then, too. So if I were them, I wouldn't bother standing still long enough to spy at the neighbor before feeling my way to my room. Even if they did notice the obvious glow from my laptop screen, I'm not interesting enough to spy on... am I? Ok, time for bed! (But self, you're not tired!) Quiet!

Very Inexpensive Petroleum?

Jealous? It's ok, you can admit it...

For I am the proud bearer of a Jiffy Lube VIP Card. That's right, I can save $5 on every Signature Service Oil Change! Ok, I'll admit it... I'm blogging just to blog. Thanks for reading. I'll do a better blog soon. I promise.

Mmm... disgusting

Here am I with a green pepper from a piece of pizza...

I didn't eat it of course... Gross. I also picked off the onions, olives, mushrooms, and other healthy-looking things before I ate the crust and pepperoni that remained. Is it wrong of me to still be so picky with my food at this age? I mean, I'm not really missing out on anything (besides nutrition). I choose not to eat them because I simply don't like the taste. Icky. What about you, few and faithful readers? What foods do you dislike that you've never really liked (but probably should)? Commence comments.

Brand New Blog!

Ok, so basically it's the same ol' blog with a different auto-template. Well, I'll give myself a little more credit than that. I changed the names of the sidebar menu items and changed my screen name, among other little things. I spent a few hours tweaking the template and realized that if I ever want to customize the actual look of the template, I'm gonna have to take a class or something. It's confusing stuff. Oh well, it's still fun to mess with, so stay tuned for future tweaks! On second thought, you probably don't care all that much what my blog looks like. Well, I do. So there.

New and Un-proved!

So I'm looking in the pantry for something to eat, and I come upon these:

Now, I was too hungry to care about the disclaimer at the time, but I still found it somewhat unsettling. I don't remember ever being disappointed with the taste of those Doritos in the past... what did they have to improve on? Dorito-newcomers may see this bag and think "Well, it looks like they messed up earlier, how do I know these don't taste bad, too?" or veteran Dorito-eaters may not want an improvement made on a taste they used to like. Either way, I didn't notice a difference.
They were stale.

random thoughts and coughing

Someday soon, I want to redesign the layout of my blog. I have a newfound interest in updating it regularly and I want to change the look of it and maybe the theme of it before I go to college next month. Maybe I'll start a college-themed blog. Nah, I'll just stick to posting random things about my life. Why not. They've been successful in the past (hey, you're reading this now, aren't you?). Well, I planned on blogging tonight about random things but that's all I can think of. I have a feeling this cold medicine isn't going to kick in until I go to sleep. I don't think I'll remember writing this when I wake up early to go to work tomorrow. Bottom line: as soon as I take the time to figure out how, I'm going to transform my blog into something pleasing to the eye, with semi-regular posts that are posted in the interest of humor to reward readers for stopping by. Or maybe not. Ah heck... rule #1: when you're hungry, don't go shopping or you will buy way too much. Rule #2: when you're sick and dead tired, don't go blogging or you will type way too much until it sounds right, but it never will, so don't even start. Good night.

Welp, I got back from Creation yesterday. Highlight, you ask? Meeting Reese Roper, lead singer of one of my favorite bands (Roper), and former lead singer of his old bands, Brave Saint Saturn and Five Iron Frenzy.
