'nuff said.

I wanted mood to say "Mostly joy, with a smatter of disbelief and a handful of bittersweet" but it wouldn't fit. And that just contradicted the first sentence. Mmmmm. :D

Fuck you, water. [Jul. 8th, 2007|08:32 pm]

[music |Guyz Nite - Die Hard]

I never want to go camping again. Ever.

We had a water polo tournament in Murrieta Valley this weekend, and our coach had the brilliant idea of having us stay at a campground overnight for "team bonding" purposes. A campground that was next to a dairy farm, air thick with flies during the near-hundred-degree daytimes. So, we pitched two tents on the grass across from the trailer that Ms. Simons stayed in, a big one where we all slept and a small one that just ... stood there 'cause no one wanted to sleep in it alone. We left the top uncovered, leaving just the mesh so that we would stay cool and also allowing us to stare up and the stars and stuff.

After all of has had fallen asleep, the sprinklers suddenly decided to ATTACK US AT 1 A.M. We were caught unawares, confused, and disoriented. One guy even thought it was rain for the first few minutes. But we figured that the worst was over, and we might as well try to get back to sleep.

Bad decision.

At around 2 a.m., the sprinklers came back AGAIN, effectively drenching everyone in the tent. Still, we stuck it out and stayed in the tent. At this point, my sleeping bag was already pretty wet, so I ended up trying to share one blanket with two other guys over this tiny patch of dry tarp.

3 a.m. "FUUUUCK." That is what came out of my mouth as I heard the sound of water hitting the sides of the tent, causing me to leap across the tent to seek the cover of my wet, but waterproof sleeping bag. Eventually, we admitted defeat and ended up sleeping in one of the cars. By morning, it was probably something like 90 degrees inside, with the windows completely steamed up and a locker-room smell filling the air.

And I would've remained perfectly dry if only I hadn't unzipped my mummy sleeping bag, allowing the water to find its way in through the side (itwasfreakinghotokay?). I am going to make some Alka-Seltzer Plus.

- TC water polo is a waste of time. We're like a mediocre JV team right now. And I pretty much suck. I play worse against shitty teams for some reason. Yeah.
- Nintendo needs to stop fucking around and make some more Wiis. It's been eight fucking months, guys. Get your shit together. I'm starting to think that the eBay sellers are actually just people who work for Nintendo trying to price-gouge us.
- Art is pretty fun.
- GO, KOBAYASHI!

[music |Babyface - What If]

I just woke up, and I figured that I'd write down what I remember from my dream before I forget. I was in Canada for some reason, and I met this massive group of people I knew in elementary school. Only a few of my friends were actually in the group for some reason; most of them were people that were a year older than me. My brain is weird. Anyway, at first everyone was just like "ZOMG JACK!" Well, no. The first thing someone (Iain Ross, not that that means anything to anyone) said was "Look what my father did to the house." I turned around, and the house looked like four San Francisco houses squished together, and each individual building was a different shade of pink. Yeah. Anyway, I walked around with the group for a while, and we ended up getting something to eat (surprise, surprise!). That is when I realized that I not only did not have any Canadian money on me, I didn't have any money period. My unconscious is brilliant. Well, the point is that after a while, I started feeling ignored. Maybe my unconscious is also an attention whore. I don't know. But that is around when I woke up, and it got me thinking about how one day, I will never see any of you again. But what's REALLY amazing is that I woke up WITHOUT AN ALARM after going to sleep at around 3:00 a.m. Truly amazing. So if you actually read all that, I'm sorry for wasting a few minutes of your life. Actually, I'm not. I'm laughing at you right now.

If you haven't heard already, Takeru Kobayashi lost his hold on the hot-dog-eating record after dominating the world of competitive eating for six straight years. You can read more about that here. BUT I believe in Kobayashi; he will reclaim his title soon enough (enjoy your moment in the limelight, Joey Chestnut, for it will be fleeting). To honor his greatness, I have decided to share this video with you all. Enjoy.

Today I was taking an SAT Lit practice test (or part of it, since I got distracted and only did two passages) and stumbled upon this little excerpt from Jonathan Swift's proposal "For Preventing the Children of Poor People in Ireland from Being a Burden to Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to The Public."

Catherine would love thisCollapse )
