I hate April Fool’s Day. The jokes usually come at the expense of another person’s confidence or dignity, and I rarely find the jokes themselves to be very funny. Since I HATE that feeling of being tricked, I don’t like seeing it happen to someone else.
[This isn’t a comment on the rest of you who enjoy the day; I just don’t like to be involved. just one of those things]
I’m in the same boat, I don’t like the types of “jokes” that people play on each other usually and I’m a fun person so don’t give me that “you’re no fun” crap. April Fool’s Day always reminds me of when people say something rude or mean and say “What’s the big deal, I was just joking”. Doing something mean and then saying you’re kidding doesn’t excuse the fact that you did something mean.
Mmmm, not me, I love a good prank. I use the word prank because I like the simple pranks that always get a good laugh. Flashback, 2002. My Dad wakes up at his usual hour for work and goes to the sink for a glass of water. Splash. Tim Lyons took a rubber band, colored it black and wrapped it around the sink hose. He never saw it coming. I haven’t played an April Fools joke since…Until now…..
They take total control over Washington Mutual for less than a month and I have already gotten 5 different bull shit fees. I don’t hate anything really, but I am very passionate when I say how much I hate Chase Bank. They benefit nobody but themselves. Fuck you Chase bank, fuck you.
There are 2 little girls that live in my building...
They were out in the alley earlier screaming for their mother to let them inside when I happened to be down doing my laundry, so I let them in and this other huge bald guy, who is known for being a douche bag, comes out as they are walking upstairs and says to them:
"You two need to shut the fuck up, just shut up".
I was already on my floor when I heard him say that. I wanted to go downstairs and tell him what an asshole he is and they are just kids, they did the first thing that came to mind, but I was wearing a really stupid shirt.
Movies I have never seen (and probably never will)
The Matrix (1999)
The Godfather (1972) —all of them
Fight Club (1999)
The Big Lebowski (1998)
Back to the Future (1985)
The Lord of the Rings (2003) —whatever the last one is
Wait a minute, are people liking this post because they also have never seen these movies or because the movies are good? My friend it is important that you take the time out to at least see: Jaws, The Godfather (1) maybe 2, Fight Club, and Back to the Future. The others you will probably see on TNT at some point in the life.
Jaws especially, its terrifying and the lengths Spielberg went to make it are unmeasurable. Please, I beg you to see it, even if you hate it.
I ran today for the first time in a long time and it went better than expected. As I ran though, my mind drifted, as it usually does, but this time it went to old memories of running days gone by.
I was washing my clothes one day and I wanted to run so badly that I took my shorts out of the dryer prematurely. They were a little damp and it was no big deal, it looked like it was going to rain anyway. It did. It poured, actually. What I didn’t realize when I took the shorts out of the dryer is that there was still some suds in them from the washer. So while I was running and the rain poured down, the friction from short to leg built up and my shorts began to soap up something terrible. I couldn’t stop it. I was running with lather dripping all over my legs and shoes. I could tell other rain runners were laughing at me, there was no way to hide it, the more it rained, the more I lathered.
So take it from me, wait for your clothes to dry before going out in the rain, it could save you an hour or more of embarrassment.
Classic NES midi has some of the catchiest melodies around. This is from one of my favorite games, based on one of my favorite movies, based on one of my favorite comic strips Little Nemo in SlumberLand.
Another one from Small L’s series of one song a day for a month. I don’t know if its a good or bad thing that they are catchy and short. I want to hear more, but it doesn’t ruin the inicial melody to hear it in short bits.
sometimes I worry about this weight gain and I think “maybe I could have just padded myself for these 15 minute short films rather than making myself eat this cheap shitty food” but I am hopeful that I can bounce back to my original weight.
Flash forward 10 years to me in my rascal
Ice Cream Truck Drive: What’ll you have?
Me: Just give me that whole tub of Peanut Butter Blitz…NO THE OTHER ONE!!!
"Thinstalls". It’s basically just a .exe file of my favorite classic PC games. Whats that you say, I can just jump into Age of Empires or Diablo 2 for a moment? Yes please. Only that moment turns into 3 hours of classic goodness. Nerds be damned, why do you come up with such good ideas.
