I’ve Got You Covered


I think it’s really neat that the Hebrew word for “atonement” is “covering.”

That denotes a lot of wonderful things.


Somebody else paying for you when you have nothing to pay.

Keeping the cold out.

Eternal life.

Great International Celebrities, Episode 3- And Various Other Adventures

Marshall “Do” Applewhite- Charismatic leader of the Heaven’s Gate that committed mass suicide several years ago in order to hop a ride on the Hale Bop Comet. Looks like a happy happy guy.


In other news, a new yogurt place has opened up RIGHT ACROSS THE STINKING STREET from Dixie Nutrition, called “Krayogurtve”. I am gonna give Krave kredit (waha good one Green), a million toppings (plus about 12 yogurt flavors) kind of seals the deal for me, especially…get this…KAPTAIN KRUNCH! Plain tart yogurt with Kaptain Krunch pieces on top is about the best thing in the world. Sounds weird, but it’s true.  Sadly, it’s quite expensive, I’m paying $1.50 at Krave for a small (4 ounces), compared to $1.00 at Dixie Nut. Is it worth it? Only you can decide. And me, I guess. I just haven’t decided yet. Heh! If they had planned on putting us out of business, well, screw that, we barely make any profit on our yogurt in the first place. Maybe if they sold Oatscream, Tofu Hot Dogs, Meatless Chicken Nuggets, and really mysterious Chinese products that have “deer penis” as an ingredient, they might have a chance at driving us out. But don’t let them hear that, or they might just start putting those things in their yogurt. Heh heh! EWW!

Oh, and their website is wrong. Tart yogurt is not unique to Krave. Dixie Nutrition actually started it 40 years ago. SUCKAS!

See? I don’t even know who I’m rooting for.

I Lost My Face in a War, Part II

From L-Burg to California 552

It’s ok, you’ll have another face someday.

Such a terrible thing to lose.

Aye,” said the faceless stranger as he put forth his

oars into the wild blue surf, and paddled off.

I’ll miss that guy.

Piddling around with Windows Live Writer

I don’t know if this is cooler than just writing a regular blog. I’m testing this baby out.

It is good to have a couple days off of work. This has been a silly week.

I have to go  to the bathroom right now, so I’m going to end this.

I figured I better write at some point and talk about my marriage, since I never seem to mention that in my blogs.


It was pretty weird at first, but the change of hardly ever seeing my parents (despite the fact that they live about five miles away), and most of my friends anymore, has passed, for the most part. I love being with Emily, and now that her new work schedule has freed her for six days a week, rather than three, I'm happy.

Our condo is kind of a mess right now. I was in the "must look perfectly clean" state for a week or two after we were married, but that's worn off. We got Rock Band last week, so that's made for a grand time the past several days. I have a band called "The Spleens," led by pretty-boy Chuck Vanilla. He plays the guitar, looks like a hippie, and has the sweetest lamb-chops ever.

School isn't too difficult, and I didn't fall behind too much for missing my first Tuesday of classes. Pardon me for thinking that the "TR" on my schedule just stood for "THURSDAY," not "TUESDAY & THURSDAY". Jerks. How is anybody supposed to know that?

I enjoy reading, something that started this past summer. Because of it, my "intro to literature" class is pretty enjoyable, more so than it would've been had I been taking it in high school or something. As you can tell from my last blog, Young Goodman Brown was a fun read, and made even more fun by the fact that I UNDERSTOOD IT. Even despite Nate Hawthorne's ancient biblical wording. I don't think I had ever been more excited, than I was the day after I read it, to share my thoughts about it in class. This is pretty weird to say all this, since it's a book about devil worship and everything, heh heh. I'm just happy that I understood it, because I usually don't comprehend what I read, especially 19th century literature.

Last night, I relaxed with my dear wife at my parents house. We ate egg rolls and watched Arrested Development and Forrest Gump. Mmm. A good combination.

What are we gonna do today? Hmm...go fly kites. Go eat Thai food. Go swimming. And...oh yeah...make Wingers' Sticky Fingers. Mmmm. Hooray for Labor Day!

The end.

So this is a picture of Nathaniel Hawthorne, author of Young Goodman Brown, a hilarious adventure story about a guy named, you guessed it, Young Goodman Brown, and believe me, HE IS YOUNG. Actually he may not be so young. He goes and hangs out with the Devil in the woods, and decides to go chill at one of those Satan-worshipping gatherings. Once he gets there, he sees everyone he knows there, and basically realizes that everybody he's known in his life to be good moral pious Christians are actually all Satan worshippers. Ha ha! A delightful romp the whole family will enjoy. Soon to be a motion picture from Disney Pixar!
