  1. Y'all Got Cash?

    Ah Summer Time!
    How I loathe thee.
    Summer means the stinky people that frequent the store are even stinkier.

    Summer means the greasy people that frequent the store are even greasier. Seriously. Usually I only have to wipe down the glass showcases at the end of the day. But if the temperature outside hits anywhere higher than 72 then the glass looks like someone smeared Vaseline all over it within minutes of opening the door.

    Summer means everyone has ...

  2. Mid Year's Resolutions

    Ever since I was a little kid, I have been fascinated with the concept of a fresh start. Not as in "complete overhaul," "witness protection program," or "bury your girlfriend where no one will ever find her, ever." More like New Year's resolutions or the kinds of promises you make to yourself as you blow out your birthday candles. These kinds of incremental improvements can be very useful if they are adhered to.

    In fact, one of my favorite comedies, ...

  3. part three

    We wake up late Sunday and check out of the hotel. We pick up Sierra and take her to lunch. She and Robby are consumed with sketching in his journal. It is evident they are very much brother and sister. She shows exciting promise as and artist and he gives her tips about drawing facial features. Sierra has grown up to be a beautifully atypical teenager. Despite the fact that she was trapped in a house with her barely sane mother and a pedophile and for the past ten years, she is emotionally mature ...

  4. grand junction part two

    The views in Grand Junction are beautiful, but there is a perpetual feeling of being trapped in the valley. Not only is it completely surrounded on all sides by bluffs and mountains, but most of the people seem to be natives who never made an effort to move away or better themselves. There is a severe lack of community feeling and absolutely no sense of artistic encouragement. Throughout our visit, we found very few independent local businesses. The ones we did find either offered poor quality products ...

  5. grand junction, colorado part one

    the following is an entirely true experience. lots more to come. these words are going to be used in various ways to raise money for sierra so constructive criticism is very welcome. also, my apologies to anyone who lives in grand junction, not just because i insulted your town but also because you have to live there.

    Friday morning, 6 am we wake up, pack up, and take off. It would turn out to be the trip of a lifetime, but not necessarily in a good way. We made the decision to go ...

  6. My cousin and Facebook

    I have a cousin -I'll refer to her as Amy - who is a few years younger than myself (I'm currently 30, so I think she's 28) and is basically the second eldest person in the bracket of the family's generation; out of all siblings and cousins interrelated through my parents and their siblings, I'm the eldest, this cousin would be the second eldest, my sister behind her, and so on. This is the order which I grew up believing. However, about ten years ago, I came to discover that this wasn't the truth ...

  7. Work laziness

    by , 21 Jun 2010 at 09:54 PM (The Rise and Fall of the Rude Owls)
    Being that i'm the only employee where i work, sometimes i'm the only person actually at work. On most days, i go about what i'm supposed to do, interspersed with Facebook time and email time, and sometimes playing vidya games time.
    There are also some days where work isn't particularly busy or i can't fill orders because of missing supplies, so i don't work as much and spend more time on doing things that aren't valuable at all. On these days, i reflect it by writing down "2 hour break" ...

  8. Arcade theme bar?

    My friend and I occasionally talk about opening up a bar one day and what are the chances a bar filled with arcades could be successful? Would people think of it as a smaller, dirtier version of Gameworks or Dave and Busters?

    It's not a location that I want families hanging out or a bunch of teenagers either. I want a place that people my age (25 - 30) could relieve the days that any mall you visited had an arcade but at a place with food/drinks that won't cost an arm and leg. ...

  12. Single Player

    Sometimes it's hard getting people to come see a movie with you. It could have something to do with the types of movies I watch. I guess not everyone is into seeing a talking zombie baby popping out of its zombie mother's womb. These are just some of life's realities.

    The same thing happened to me with video games. I remember learning to play an import of JoJo's Bizzare Adventure and eventually becoming really good at it. I brought it out once in my social circle and played it for ...

  13. SSFIV Tourney Mode = Major Disappointment.

    So after weeks of waiting, Capcom released the free DLC for Super SFIV and it turns out to be total crap. When it was first announced, I predicted the Tournament Mode would offer a lot more substance. Instead, we get a poor man's version of Endless Battle where the true distinguishing feature is the trophy .jpeg offered to the victor.

    Whoopee. No achievement. No leaderboards. Just a virtual pat on the back for becoming the king of the hill.

    I feel they put as much ...

    Dear Diary,

    I slept most of the day (yesterday), since I was up all night (before last) trying to catch up on work again. We went to Stone Mountain in the evening for a friend's birthday. When we started to play frisbee a youth group rushed the field and discouraged us from throwing for too long. So we ate some "cake", which was kind of a large eclair, made of brioche and filling. I wonder how hard it is to come up with new animation for the laser show here; they've been ...

    Dear diary,

    Yesterday wasn't terribly eventful. I tried to catch up on work for the majority of the day, since I ended up so far behind this week . We went to my sister's for Sunday dinner, and played Rock Band for a couple hours. I'd never played drums before, it's hard!

    See you tomorrow!
