Today's Mighty Oak

Well, acording to my last entry, looks like I shoudl go visit tmaster (not that I'm complaining one bit (:  ).

Things have been crazy, I was removed from the staff of the website that has been my home for years, even when I never felt like I had a real home, I could go there.

It happens though, I can't believe how everything happened.  I'll still be around, I have to finish up the game of Survivor (even though I'm in Spire Tribe…) and besides with EoA coming out, what's a guy to do (Oh…I know, get rid of tradition and trash the penguin pips….not that I'm bitter and angry…., I'm just saying things were better when we were all there).  I don't feel like I fit at MC either, I never did.  I'm trying to make a new home for myself over at Goldah's place, AngelStudios, and I even get to show off some of my creative work!

But anyway…one week left at Westinghouse.  I'm kind of sad, but kind of relieved.  I'm very tired of waking up at 6:30 each morning.  As much as I love working there, I'm ready to go back to school (already there is unnecessary drama surrounding The Review, but oh well…I just keep going and try to wade through all the shit).

The remote control car race to benefit United Way is Friday.  I'm excited, but also glad to have it done, it's been such a big project, and I know it's for a good cause, it's just a pain sometimes (mostly becasue the legal department needs to get off its high horse and people need to stop being so sue-happy).

I have six littles now!  I'm overwhelmed.  One is a commuter.  HELP!  I've never had a commuter before, what do I do?  Please leave comments if you have any ideas/suggestions!

The following was quoted on Slate

[QUOTE]Terrorists in Iraq are using dogs as suicide bombers. The Muslim Scholars Association says this is wrong because it hurts animals-but the Association sympathizes with the insurgents, who target human civilians.[/QUOTE]

(and yes I konw BBCode doesn't work here, just habit I suppose, hehehe)

Kind of sad and scary!

Wow…long post (which makes me feel like animan…hehehe, scary.

Talk with everyone soon!

Went to Borders today.  It's taken me two days to get halfway through Harry Potter Book 1.  So I picked up the next one.  Also got a cool book entitled "Suggestion."

I'm off to DC for a couple days for the ACP Student Media Conference.  I'll be back on Tuesday.

Have a great one!

So this is partially a note to myself and a note to anyone who may be reading this:

Someone (I can't remember who, hence, this entry) asked what one of the songs is in the movie, Remember the Titans.  The song is "Peace Train."  (during the scene when Julius goes over to have dinner).

If this was for you and you're reading this, leave me a comment to let me know.

(guess I'm still the king of weird music questions)

Hehehe, I love the quote above!

I went and saw the nerd this weekend, it was really good.

It was nice to be at school, and have pretty good weather (not too hot I thought). I really can't wait to get there, to be really busy again. Not that I'm not busy now, it's just that I have to go to bed fairly early becasue I have to wake up so early. I just want to be busy again and not have time to be still when my mind can wander and get me into trouble.

Does anyone know where I fit, becasue I don't feel like I fit anywhere (even at school, but it's better than Monroeville)?

Well the big news is that I got a car. It's a white, 2001 Pontiac Aztek. I like it a lot, I think it suits me well (being odd).

This also means I can get out of the house easier now!

Still confused and feeling like I don't fit in.

If anyone wants to do dinner sometime (if you're around Monroeville), let me know, we'll get together!

Well, the funny thing is that I got "tagged" by two people…

List five songs that you are currently digging. It doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words or even if they're any good but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions, along with each song's artist and title, in your blog. Then tag five other people to see what they're listening to.

1. You and Me – Lifehouse
2. Give me Novacaine – Green Day
3. Tchaikovsky – Barcarolle
4. Guster – Two Points for Honesty
5. The All American Rejects – The Last Song

I Tag:

1. Tim
2. Cat (cause everyone is doing it…)
3. Beth
4. Jimmy (probably won't see/do it, but I'll return your call soon, sorry I have'nt yet!)
5. Judd

And an obligatory quiz thingy that goes with the music motif of today's post:

Your Summer Anthem is Speed of Sound by Coldplay

All that noise, and all that sound,
All those places I got found.
And birds go flying at the speed of sound,
to show you how it all began.

You're out of your mind this summer, in a good way.


Check out the link below, it's a "review" of Episode III (which I saw again tonight).

Nothing major happening, we got a new grill, eh…whatever, it just means better lamb now!

Happy 4th everyone!

I went to Latrobe to see "Rounding Third," the play at the Theater.  It was really good, Jared, one of the actors, used Brad and I during the performance as two of the kid son his "little league team."  It was cool to be pointed at by Jared during the show (we met last year, Jared is really cool and a really talanted actor).

After the show I got to help with the strike which was a blast.  I'm hoping I can go up for the next strike as well.

In other news, I just dowloaded mozilla firefox.  I like it a lot, and as I've heard there is a lot smaller chance of it being affected by virus/hackers etc.  I also switched from Outlook express to Outlook…I really have to clean out my email….
