Poor Poor Michael

Aww... Poor Michael



Michael... I accept you and all your cow-simulating self. If I
didn't, I would have had you executed long ago like Kevin.

You don't remember Kevin, because Kevin didn't get to stick around
long enough to meet you. I blame him, as he pissed me off, and I had
to... dispose of his annoyance.

You aren't to that level. So I am not forced to deal with you as I
dealt with Kevin.

Poor, poor Kevin.

Otherwise, I agree. We do need to do something. Something to shake
things up... unfortunately half of us do not drive, and the other half
do not want to drive...

and the other half have jobs that keep us from doing something.

So my weekends are free sometimes... we need to actually try...
planning something.

I know how we are all against the planning of things... but for the
sake of actually seeing each other, we may need to consider it.

Lastly, for the sake of keeping Michael from crying... I would never
actually translate what I say on the board about you to real life. Of
all the Collins, you are now the one with the most potential for...
well... something other than waking up in a pile of Post-It notes and
dog hair.

if you have yet to catch it on adult swim, i suggest that all of you turn to channel 42, at 12am and watch the Venture Bros. I haven't laughed out loud to a cartoon in a very long time. My ribs are still sore from last nights episode, and it wasn't their best.
i'm at pierce, researching for my final essay. wee. i am having so much fun.
i just ate a bacon sammich, and i think im going to be sick. not sure if the sammich was the cause, but if i die-avenge my death, will you brothers?
i need a job, if any of you know of any places thats are hiring asians-like chinese restaurants, convience stores, gardening positions or laundry and dry cleaning businesses-please let me know. i would love to follow a sterotype.
anywho-back to this paper, than will go to class, bitch about stuff and than go home and eat turkey. oh snap-i have a take home test due tomorrow...well i guess i'll do that after eating left over turkey. anywho-
hope your day is filled with rapists and child molestors, and you get hit by a speeding automobile (hopefully, while your out and about) and be paralyzed from the waist down and will than be unable to advance your seed. LONG LIVE MIKE DITKA.
Well, I wasn't one to really hate anyone, cept jimmy, god I hate him. Don't know about most of everyone, but even if I did hate you Bonnie, congratulations. One would have to be a real big ass to avoid that....on a board no less.

I think its been ages since I posted. But sup ladies, I've been good. Having fun with a actual job ( so I call it, but James laughs at me for it ) at target. Apparently its a dumbass job, but one that pays me, so hay, I could care less. I final have cash to do stuff I've always wanted to when out with the group. But now it looks the group has all grown up and gone their ways and have their own things to take care of.

Jeff, I hate you so much because you are so funny, yes you call me what you call me, but I see no insult in it. I'm not one to go that far, mind toning it down a bit? Because I'd really like that interweb can of worms not to effect real life.

I was thinking of revising my list of how much I hate all of you because as time goes on, all of you have changed so much, like Bonnie has mentioned, but I don't know what I would say about each one of you because I have only been talking with Jimmi-o and Mike. I dunno maybe we could all do some stuff like old times, if it were possible.

bleh, fags.

Coming home from school was...not good. I had a bit of a nervous breakdown and ended up staying inside most of the time, or spending time alone. There were a few friends whom none of you know because ...you don't...that I could hang out with, but merely because they are rather indifferent, mere associates who I happen to spend time with. They don't care if I change because they never really knew me in the first place. Minus spending time with one good friend, I felt ashamed of the changes I have gone through. I know I shouldn't be because they are positive changes that will help me in the future, but ...I don't know. If I never see any of you again, it would probably be for the best. You'd probably hate me now, and if you hated me before, you'd hate me more now. I've grown up and its sad. I'm sorry. I'm going to be an officer in the United States Army...and that is not something to take lightly in this day and age.

GOBBLE GOBBLE YOU FOOLS!




So, yeah, happy Thanksgiving you fools. i meant to write that yesterday but I was too hopped up on Tryptofan... it was like a crazy '70's nightmare...

Trolls kept coming up to me saying, "hey, have you seen michael... he is our furry lord"...

I just kicked them several times... it was good fun. It reminded me of the time i stole a sandwich from a hobo after fighting him in a street version of mortal kombat.

>.... if this post is weird... blame the TRYPTOFAN!

TRYPTOFUN TRYPTOAWESOMENESS!

November 23, 2004

so the craziest thing happened today.
i ran into andy at pierce. he's looking good.
i guess it wasnt crazy, just unexpected.
welll its almost turkey day, and im pump.
convince my parents to actually have thanksgiving dinner this year.
wasn't looking foward to micro-waved burretos and hot pockets (but i do have turkey and broccilli hot pockets and they are good...).
i have to do a stupid essay today.
i hate essays.
i hate a lot of things, especially mexicans.
yo, neeger-i need younger to drop my PS2 off, and all my movies (and yes, that includes Slacker you fag) tonight.
If you have forgotten the movies, there are in this order: Blazing Saddles, THX1138, Slacker, Texas ChainSaw Massacre, Eternal Sunrise of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation, and I'm sure there are others, but i have forgotten them.
That doesn't mean i don't want them back.
I need them before you forget, and than need money and go off to Blockbuster and trade them in for credit.
That irritates me, I know I'm forgetting a movie in there, somewhere.
fuck.
well, i'm going to end this post.
If i don't talk to any of you before thanksgiving, i hope someone close to you gets cancer, you recieve a VD from your tomfoolery, and your family fights and an uncle goes nuts and start capping niggas.

You know, James has many abilities that are, well, comic.

And then there are those humorous drawings he does.

The WALLEROO?!

The Walleroo!



Okay... years and years ago... I went on a tirade about how Kangaroos
and Wallabies are evil and that they would be used one day in the
ultimate conquest of the human race.

And of course you fuckers didn't believe me. You all never do. It's
always more of the: Oh what crazy thing is Jeff talking about now..."

First, to that I'd just like to say: I hate you all. Especially
you Michael, you FURRY-FREAK!"


Secondly..., and far more importantly:

I WAS RIGHT!



Don't believe me? Big surprise...

But now I have proof. Proof that I was right, which turns out to
usually be true 95.67% of the time.


Wallaroo, goat escape from Vanilla Ice's house in Port St. Lucie


Associated Press

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - New hit songs may not be coming for Vanilla
Ice, but the rapper's animal troubles are.

The singer who had a 90s hit with "Ice Ice Baby" called animal control
officials Wednesday to report that a wallaroo and goat found wandering
around Port St. Lucie over the weekend had escaped from his backyard,
city officials said.

The rapper, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, may have problems
getting his pets back. The wallaroo, a cross between a wallaby and a
kangaroo, is considered an exotic animal and is not allowed in Port
St. Lucie. Farm animals such as the goat also are banned.

The animals were picked up Saturday by Port St. Lucie Animal Control
after a woman reported them, saying the 60-pound wallaroo had
scratched her and kicked her car.

Van Winkle was not at his Port St. Lucie home Wednesday. A schedule on
his Web site said he was in California taping a motorcycle commercial.

In January, Bucky the wallaroo accidentally scratched his face. That
forced him to cancel photo shoots and interviews for his appearance on
VH1's "Surreal Life" reality show, which featured celebrities whose
fame had faded.

Van Winkle, 36, bought the wallaroo from a Florida breeder after his
Arctic Canadian lynx died three years ago, he has said in interviews.
Van Winkle was cited twice in 1998 for keeping the lynx in his
backyard.



Now don't go telling me that Vanilla Ice is not evil in some way...
and now he keeps, as a pet, the combined evil of a kangaroo and a
wallaby!

And he has a goat!

We should all know from "Amityville Horror" that goats are evil.
Goats are those things that get sacrificed in the Bible.

Now, if and yours were sacrificed in the Bible over and over again,
don't you think that you'd be a little pissed and turn into an evil
animal? And Wallabies and Kangaroos are the same. I mean, c'mon,
Australians don't have goats over there (or they were imported) (or
they probably do but... I don't care), so instead they sacrificed
Wallabies and Kangaroos... pissing them off, and making them hate
humanity.

Couple all that animal hatred with Vanilla Ice, who has every reason
to hate people for shunning him after the fiasco that he calls his
music career, and you have one man more dangerous than all the
terrorist groups out there.

Something to think about.

With regards to this board... the board is dying not necessarily
because everyone is lazy (that's my single reason and not your alls)
but because 1. the novelty has worn off, and 2. james hasn't done
anything in a long time worth reporting about and making fun of.

It's been years... so if you want to increase traffic to the board,
you have to start doing stuff outside of the board. Camping, movies,
lighting James' hair on fire...

I personally like the board. Always have, even though I don't have
time to post sometimes. I've been learning some stuff on the side
which should actually make my posts more ... unique.

If you all are going to do something to the board... at least leave
the board for me. I like it. I will continue to check it even when
all of you are dead.

(Which will be in 13 months, six days, and eleven minutes - commuter
bus accident)

A Call for Action
Anyone interested in James's new Comic Ability becoming a part of this site? I asked him a while back if he could just dump the board part and start a daily or roughly daily comic on here. Not just about slugs, mind you... Well I've thought about it a bit and I've come to a few (probably wrong) conclusions:

- LJ has taken over in the daily drama department
- Blogger is a very unfriendly way to blog.
- LJ's audience extends past our simple High School relationships
- With those three key arguments, this place is doomed beyond the tag-board
- The tagboard has died, the one and true reason for visiting as of late.

I love the name, I love the concept that this has done as well as it has with our limited numbers, and I think we all need this site to continue.

How about we refine my ideas a bit here.... Lets reduce the Blogging size, get James to start posting his work, and get a working tagboard back online. It might be good to even startup a few sections like an art section for Mike, a crazy rants section, a Spleen! section. Or whatever....

I know we're all lazy and none of that will come to fruition but I wanted to state my case.

Anyone still out there hear me? James, I'd especially like you to pay attention.
Hey James, would you be so kind and fix the CSS on this page so that FireFox will see it correctly?
I think this might help:

- the difference is the CSS box model.

IE measures the width of an object from border to border, where Mozilla measures the width in terms of the content.

You can force Mozilla to measure it the same way by adding these to your style definitions.

Code:
-moz-box-sizing:border-box;box-sizing:border-box;


I'm more comfortable in measuring things from border to border, so all of my HTML/XHMTL templates have this definition...

Code:
DIV{-moz-box-sizing:border-box;box-sizing:border-box;margin:0;padding:0;}

Hmmm, I was thinking about this...

Reading Google Zeitgeist ... I noticed simple queries that could have been placed in the address bar with a www. and .com and worked just fine! This got me to thinking that perhaps a lot of lazy people out there place google as their start page and then simply type in things like 'mapquest' to instantly get the link. Hmmm, saves ya about .001 minutes I'd think. In the future, I see a more plain version of the internet. Google's front page hits the nail on the head on this point, and their ad's are the perfect style as to not be intrusive as well.

Now, if only they can refine that damn search engine... It feels so rough to me; I swear I do half the searching in my head thinking of enough 'uncommon' words that would be associated with what I'm looking for as to get good results. I to see a few of the basic-advanced (I Know, oxymoron.) search capabilities as a few small buttons or letters on the front page. As it stands, it's functional.

This thought all started today watching my fellow coworker type a full on sentence in a search field! She was looking for lyrics to some song, typing something like "'s words for the song "don't fence me in" I want to print it." Holy Hell! Does she think the damn thing is even remotely smart? Do you notice there's no word Lyrics in there? Ugh, how lacking can the understanding of a machine progress to?

Anyhoo... You all might not like what I start posting in here, but I happen to like this place and don't want it to fall into the Land of the Dead(links).

I'm going to do something about this place... Looks as if the Tag-Board site has died... this place will really go to hell now... I'll figure it out.

I WENT BACK TO OHIO
BUT MY CITY WAS GONE
THERE WAS NO TRAIN STATION
THERE WAS NO DOWNTOWN
SOUTH HOWARD HAD DISAPPEARED
ALL MY FAVORITE PLACES
MY CITY HAD BEEN PULLED DOWN
REDUCED TO PARKING SPACES
A, O, WAY TO GO OHIO


WELL I WENT BACK TO OHIO
BUT MY FAMILY WAS GONE
I STOOD ON THE BACK PORCH
THERE WAS NOBODY HOME
I WAS STUNNED AND AMAZED
MY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
SLOWLY SWIRLED PAST
LIKE THE WIND THROUGH THE TREES
A, O, OH WAY TO GO OHIO


I WENT BACK TO OHIO
BUT MY PRETTY COUNTRYSIDE
HAD BEEN PAVED DOWN THE MIDDLE
BY A GOVERNMENT THAT HAD NO PRIDE
THE FARMS OF OHIO
HAD BEEN REPLACED BY SHOPPING MALLS
AND MUZAK FILLED THE AIR
FROM SENECA TO CUYAHOGA FALLS
SAID, A, O, OH WAY TO GO OHIO
