Reflections on the camping excursion...

So, that was awesome. Nothing like freezing for the love of nature. It just reaffirms my belief that TN is so much more beautifual than TX. TX...the ugly girl at the prom. No idea what that means...shut up.

Anyways, things I learned on this trip:

Things that are so much better when you are intoxicated:
  1. Interpol's Turn on the Bright Lights.
  2. Scattergories (in where for the letter "G" everything I put had the pre-fix of "Giant")
  3. Playing Weezer's "Say It Ain't So" on a guitar in a cave.
  4. Warming your feet by the don't realize the rubber on your soles are melting.
  5. Hot Dogs that are cold in the middle.
  6. Walking down a trail where you can't see, only to find out in the morning that there was a 50 foot drop right next to you.
  7. Burnt Marshmellows
  8. Peeing in the middle of the woods

BTW, I like hiking, as long as it's not up a steep hill with shoes with no traction and in the middle of a hunting club's property.

So every once in a while...

I'll be reading the San Antonio Express News website and I'll come across an article relating to the family of a kid I went to school with. Now, I know I went to school with the elite of San Antonio, but it's still surprising to see something like "Businessman blah blah millions of dollars blah blah prostitutes blah blah." and then realize I went to school with his son. Weird.
So, am I just like the Audio 1 Assisting Whore or what?

Seriously, I don't know if it's just luck of the draw or people have actually heard my name, but all these Audio 2 and Production students are calling me asking to assist them. And normally, like the assisting whore I am, I would say yes, but I'm already booked all the time. And in some ways I feel bad for turning them down, but then it's like, LEAVE ME ALONE!!

Seth Strawbridge came back this weekend. Immaculate. I walked out of my room at 5am to use the bathroom and he and Clint were talking in the hallway, just like last year. It nearly brought a tear to my eye because these things just don't happen anymore. Oh Third Floor of last year, why must Kyle and I carry the torch? We were the good kids!!

Michael Moore, Sir, You Are an Idiot.

"It's ironic that Republicans have no problem with allowing assault weapons out on our streets, yet they don't want to put clean underwear in the hands of our slacker youth," Moore said. "The Republicans seem more interested in locking me up for trying to encourage people to participate in our democracy than locking up bin Laden for his attacks on our democracy." -Mike Moore

Um.....are you really that stupid? I mean, I'm giving you props for trying to get people to vote, and I find nothing offensive about your methods, but....

You blame the Republicans for the assualt weapon ban being forgotten about? Do you forget that the entire congress is not Republican, but also composed of your precious Democrats? Are you that dim to realize that what you are implying is absolutly false? Well, wait a min...yes, yes you are. You made Farenheit 9/11.

Dumbass things John Kerry said in the debates that people probably won't pick up on...(a work in progress)

"But we didn‘t use American forces, the best trained in the world, to go kill him. The president relied on Afghan warlords and he outsourced that job too. That‘s wrong", let me get this straight. Yet again, after you pretend to console the families of those who lost their lives in the war, you call for more American lives to be placed in danger. Listen, you stupid, emotional families who blame Bush for the death of your son (who died doing something he signed up to do anyways, your son knew it was a risk, you did to, the fact that he died shouldn't change the fact that IT WAS HIS JOB.) , John Kerry would have put American soliders in even more risk, and he still wants to do that now by sending more soldiers to Iraq. Why did Bush use Afgans? Because throwing American troops into that terrain would have meant nearly certain death, and why not use the people who know the land? Even if they have no interest in capturing Bin Ladin, at least no American lives were lost trying to accomplish an ultimately fruitless task.

"And so, today, we are 90 percent of the casualties "

Flat out lie. Check the numbers, we are not 90% of the casualties in Iraq. John Kerry is a dumbass.

"The center is Afghanistan, where, incidentally, there were more Americans killed last year than the year before; where the opium production is 75 percent of the world‘s opium production; where 40 to 60 percent of the economy of Afghanistan is based on opium; where the elections have been postponed three times. "

This is the part when those sitting at home should have gone "What the fuck?" Opium? What the hell does that have to do with anything? Um, yes, they grow opium there. You say it's 40-60% of their economy. So, John "douschebag" Kerry, what do you propose we do there? Take away 40-60% of their economic power, throwing them into even more choas? Maybe you can ask Teresa to set up a Heinz plant there. Oh wait, you don't want jobs overseas. YOU FUCKING DUMBASS.

"I‘ve met kids in Ohio, parents in Wisconsin places, Iowa, where they‘re going out on the Internet to get the state-of-the-art body gear to send to their kids. Some of them got them for a birthday present. Humvees -- 10,000 out of 12,000 Humvees that are over there aren‘t armored. And you go visit some of those kids in the hospitals today who were maimed because they don‘t have the armament."

Armored Humvees weigh nearly 14,000lbs. Mr. Kerry, you bitch about the cost of the war, yet you now want to spend even more money on trasnporting these massive things over? Same goes for body armor. You can't complain about spending then ask that we spend more. GAWD.

"My message to the troops is also: Thank you for what they‘re doing, but it‘s also help is on the way. I believe those troops deserve better than what they are getting today."'re going to spend MORE money? After you just railed about how we need to focus on homeland spending, you want to invest even more on the war overseas? WTF???

Are Americans now dying in Iraq for a mistake?
KERRY: No, and they don‘t have to, providing we have the leadership that we put—that I‘m offering.

This said after just saying that is was a mistake to go into Iraq. WHAT THE BOOGADEBOO.

I gtg, I'll finish this later.
