OooOooOo Mah Body!

So I'm back! Did you miss me?!


*crickets*


*chirrp chirrp*


*cow moo's in the distance*


"MooOooOooOoooo"


*Coyote howls*


"AhoooOooOoooOoo"


*an explosion is heard in a far away world*
...


Well enough of that silliness. I s'pose you're interested in hearing about my trip then eh? Well I'm sorry if you're not because I don't really have much else to talk about right now.


So Friday, we stop in a subway for dinner. In the middle of nowhere there is guaranteed to be at least one cute boy in the local subway. It's getting ridiculous, but I'm not complaining. He was really cute too, not just in the way he looked which was cute to begin with, but he was just such a sweetie. I was having trouble figuring out what I wanted cause I knew I wanted bacon on my sandwich and everyone had already gone from my group. So he says to me, "a melt has bacon on it." haha not much but the fact that he tried to help me figure it out, aww I loved it. So I took him up on it. When I was getting my veggies taken care of I heard him ask the woman where she was from because she had an interesting accent. She was from Slovakia it turns out. I love small town innocence hehe.


Enough about subway boys though... lol
Got to the camp, it was a boyscout high adventure camp. At first I'm always disappointed. A camp full of boys and none of them are the least bit attractive. Just give it time and the cute ones start coming out of the woodwork. There were quite a few. I still have fantasies of midnight rendezvous in the showers... but it'll never happen lol. I saw a friend of a friend that I haven't seen in quite a while, he's grown to be quite a cutie. Beyond that not much happened friday.


Saturday got up early. The weather was gorgeous for a run, overcast and cool, so I went for one. Just down the road and back but it felt good. After that, had breakfast, and then we got to work. We were doing a service project while we were up there, so I dug a hole, and pulled weeds to make the amphitheater there look real nice. We did a good job.


Then that afternoon we went whitewater rafting down the might Snake river. It was way fun, but way hard work. My shoulders were killing me afterwards. One particularly fun/scary part of the rafting: we were going down a calm stretch of the river and our guide gets up and says "I'm going for a swim, someone take the oars." Well pretty much the whole crew on the boat took that as "who's with me" and jumped out of the boat, including myself, leaving the two adult leaders on the boat. Well it was cold water and I loved it, but everyone was getting strung away from the boat. Long story short, the next set of rapids are coming up and no one is on the boat. So we all swim towards the boat and pick everyone out of the water. Just as everyone sat down and had a paddle it was time to dig in and ride the rapid. A bit exciting really. Overall great fun.


Oop, dinner time (hehe more on a similar subject later)...


Ok wow I'm back and it's seriously hours later... procrastination much?


Haha seriously having trouble concentrating.


Ok where was I? Rapids... after that... Sawing!


I got back from rafting and took a shower and so I was walking around without my shirt on, and I stared sawing at the amphitheater because some of the seat stuck out into the aisle so I was trimming them to fit. It was one of those old timey saws that are real flexible like. It was fun. hehe. I fixed a fence after that. Then dinner. Omg! Best burger of my life! Mushroom Burger with Swiss, foodgasmic! Stayed up late around the campfire, always fun.
I have more thoughts that I was thinking about but I'm way too hyper to think about them to put them down here so maybe later.


Teton High Adventure 062

How refreshing.

 

More pictures tomorrow hopefully.

 

Oh and as always, I’m a comment whore so comment please, it makes me ever so happy!

 

 

Until tomorrow, perhaps…

Another Weekend Away

So I've been going to the subway near my work for lunch and I have to say, every time I go in there another cute boy is working there. Today it was one I've seen before, blond out of control hair, adorable face, sexy deepish voice. Mmmm.... [insert dirty sandwich joke here] (Serving suggestions include "special sauces", "footlongs", "meat", etc.) Needless to say I'm going to be going to subway more often for lunch.

Oh yeah by the way.

I'm leaving for the weekend. Again.


Going to the Grand Tits.

Or The Grand Tetons... whatever...


Frosting Covered!


Summer time! -ish
Maybe not...
Point being there isn't as much snow


Going to go white water rafting after doing a service project at a camp there. It should be quite fun.

So that means I'll be gone until Sunday.

No Fighting!
No Leaving!
No Drama!

No FUN with out me... please?



Until then,


Matt

Blogging, The Prequel

So I'm feeling really lazy/uninspired lately when it comes to blogging. As such here are some posts from my old myspace blog that I forgot I had (and mentioned previously). These are fairly short posts so I'll just post a few of the interesting ones.


July 29th 2007

Well for those who don't know (mostly everybody), I went backpacking this weekend. A couple of days in the high Uintahs is something I recomend to anyone and everyone.
For the more observant of you, you will have realised that this weekend there was a full moon. I have wonderful pictures, soon to come.

Oh yeah, and my birthday is on tuesday. The big 17, sorta. I think I'll go out and do what the age of 17 allows you to do, watch a rated R movie. Whoop. Maybe if it doesn't rain (or maybe if it does!) I would like to go out to Sugarhouse Park and toss a frisbee around with whoever would like to do that. Maybe on Tuesday, maybe not, who knows?

Anyways, Peace and Love from the only hippy who cuts his hair.

I don't think I really did anything for that b-day. What a loser.


July 10th 2007

Jeez, last weekend was busy. Work is now over, that's kinda sad. Now I've got nowhere to go after 6 pm, and no more money comming in, Le Gasp! But Saturday evening was fun. We had fanciful french cheeses and meats. I wore a knatty cravat. Then after work there was a cast party at Ichiban Sushi which the food was delicious.
Then yesterday, Sunday, it was the Jazz Festival. For all of you who missed out. Shame must fall upon your households. It was simply amazing. Chuck Finnely with the Salt Lake City Jazz Orchestra, David "Fathead" Newman, Bob Anderson a wonderful impressionist who in the words of the great Deano "He does me better than I do!", and finally The Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. That last one was fun, a nonstop dance party until the very end. I even was grabbed by some random woman, who I believe was slightly if not very intoxicated, and danced a lick with her.
All in all it's been fun, I hope to keep it up.


Oh and P.S. Whoever is calling my house then hanging up, stop it, it's annoying.


Oh and P.P.S. I forgot, I got the result from my AP Tests, 4 on American History and 5 on Psychology! WHOOP!

Oh and P.P.P.S. I forgot, I met Rocky Anderson at the Jazz Festival, Suckaz!

I'm pretty sure I went to that jazz festival alone. Eventually I think I met some friends there towards the end of the night with all the dancing. Rocky Anderson was the mayor of Salt Lake for a time, you either loved the guy or hated him.


March 20th 2007

I'm so pissed off. I know students have no rights once they step onto school property, but we should be able to feel safe from theft.
Allow me to explain, I have often kept a bag of food (cliff bars and granola bars and such) in my locker for long rehearsals or when i don't have any money or food. Well I went to my locker after drama festival, and lo and behold my little bag of vittles has disappeared. Now I'm going to make sure it's gone tomorrow as to not jump off the deep end without reason.
My plan of attack will go as followed, 1. either hunt down Mr. Hogan or 2. Go directly to Mr. Manning ( the new principle for those that still don't know) and demand an audience. Then after i register a formal complaint, if i don't get a satisfactory response i will go on a great speech making tour.

I will not be silenced!

This will no longer be about a cliffbar or the cost of them, it's about student's rights (or lack thereof). I will campaign on behalf of the oppressed masses. Who was it that stood in front of a tank in Tienanmen Square? A Student! Who was it that started the semi-recent riots in France? Students! Who started the White Rose an anti-nazi resistance group in WWII Germany? Once again Students!
Where ever a great event in history has happened, a student has not been far behind. If the current administration is not careful, they will have an unsatisfactory event on their hands.
I'll end with a warning: I am not happy and I will not rest until Justice is achieved for me and for my fellow students! The Bill of Rights does NOT have an AGE LIMIT!

THE CONSTITUTION DOES NOT PROTECT THOSE THAT ARE ONLY 18 AND OLDER!

Haha I actually quite enjoy reading this post again. It reminds me of how passionate I could get about things. It really did piss me off at the time though.


Ah Junior year of High School. Au revior! (I have no idea if I spelled that right and I'm not going to check) I've been thinking lately that I wish I could go back to high school so I could do it "right" but thinking about it I'm glad I'm done. The only thing I regret is not coming out in high school. Oh well.

I hope you've enjoyed this walk down memory lane as much I have. I may do this again sometime if there's an interest.

Hey-O

So yeah sorry about that last post. Last night kinda sucked hardcore. But things are better now. Thanks anyone/everyone who was there for me. You are all awesome!

Don't really have much to say right now. Umm... Went swimming today, saw two super cute boys in the shower, not naked but wearing speedos which are just as good in my opinion. Swam four laps fast and hard. Nearly killed me. I think i'm gonna start swimming more. Maybe when I get my body in shape more so I can wear a speedo too!

That's about all really. I'm sure there's more stuff but I can't be bothered. I've been staying up too late recently and so I'm trying to go to bed earlier. So far I'm failing it up.


See yah soon!


Oh yeah, some of you seemed to like this boy and I happen to have a few more so here's another one.

For a friend



In every heart there is a room
A sanctuary safe and strong
To heal the wounds from lovers past
Until a new one comes along

I spoke to you in cautious tones
You answered me with no pretense
And still I feel I said too much
My silence is my self defense

And every time I've held a rose
It seems I only felt the thorns
And so it goes, and so it goes
And so will you soon I suppose

But if my silence made you leave
Then that would be my worst mistake
So I will share this room with you
And you can have this heart to break

And this is why my eyes are closed
It's just as well for all I've seen
And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows

So I would choose to be with you
That's if the choice were mine to make
But you can make decisions too
And you can have this heart to break

And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows

- Billy Joel

Reconnection

So coffee turned out fine other than spilling it all over me. It was an old shirt at it was missing a button so I'm not too sad. Yeah but I basically spent the day with... well I suppose I should be careful with names (I'm finding out how many people actually come through here, which by the way if you are anonymous reader, yes you, I want you to vote in my Anonymous Roll Call - People with profiles and such not welcome (but all are welcome to the second poll))... so we'll call her Eve cause I've always liked that name.

Yeah we spent pretty much all day together just hanging out. Coffee, went to this local outdoor festival thingy. It was raining. I was wearing no shoes. I was very happy. We got $5 massages. It felt amazing. Got some candy. Played some Mario Tennis at my house. I'm wondering what my Mom is thinking *rolls eyes* oh well. She has a boyfriend. We got some people together went to her house. Before everyone showed up I played her some songs on my guitar, debuted some of the ones I had written. We talked about this and that. Talked about my ex-girlfriend. People showed up. Played Super Smash Bros, DDR, and Karaoke. Watched The Illusionist. Went home.

Though we didn't actually talk about me being gay directly and I sorta skated around the issue, I still feel it was well worth it and that she's someone who I will be able to talk to. I think I can start being myself around her at least. I actually found it hard to talk about my ex. No idea why. When she drove me home, she started opening up herself to me. She's had a hard life I think. The point of all this being is that I think if things go as they are I'm going to have a really close friend which is exactly what I need in real life (which I hate that term, this is just as real life to me as anything else). Hopefully we'll be able to go shopping after I get payed sometime. Yeah I know, how gay can I get? Haha what can I say I like clothes shopping.

This weekend has been a success I'd say. I need every weekend to be a success now though. Socializing is a must at this point not just a want. If I spent a weekend alone after working all week I think I'd just cry.

Ok then,


Matt

P.S. I found my old Myspace blog. Haha I didn't even remember I had it. Some of it is pretty good. I'll have to post some of it sometime.

P.P.S I also found some old pictures I've taken that I will post later as well.

Coffee Jitters

So last night was fun I 'spose. Went to Dark Side of the Moon, I've seen it like 5 times already so it was nothing really new. Always a bit therapeutic for me. Afterward we went to get coffee. Good stuff. Half the group split off then, to go get wasted I suspect. The three of us that were left were the odd crowd. You see I have this friend, hilarious as all get out, but so very crude and dark as well. He dresses quite odd and if you've been downtown SL for any long periods of time you quite possibly have seen him. He dresses sorta... pirate-y I guess you could say. But he's the kind that hates hipsters and anything popular and is quite the iconoclast. A fascinating person. Well he has a friend who's pretty cool though (oh and by the way none of the people I was out with are remotely attractive so stop your thinking there). Anyway, we eventually end up getting invited (and going to) this party. They wanted to go to just mess with everyone there. Play some hipster bingo (haha look it up, its kinda funny actually). Just kinda be dicks about it. It was kinda lame actually. So we left after like a half an hour. Then I went home and stayed up another hour online just sorta sitting there, no one to talk to. Except that Torchy fellow. He's pretty cool by the way if you didn't know that. But you probably did. Anyway, more to say about that but I'm not gonna say it cause I just don't have the interest right now.

Now today it's coffee time. I'm actually a little nervous. You see the girl i'm going with is one of the people who knows I'm gay, but I told her online. I haven't seen her in person since. She's cool with it and everything so I'm not worried about that, but just being out in public being... well... out. I dunno. I used to think I had confidence, I could really just come out whenever I wanted and be totally cool about it and not worry or anything. I find it really hard to locate that confidence now. Last night before I went out, my mom was asking about if I had a girl friend or any intersts. She's done that before and it's always awkward because I just don't talk to my folks about things like that. Well it was the perfect opportunity to have "the talk" with her, but I didn't. Just chickenshitted out. This is harder than I thought it would be.

Sorry about the lack of paragraphs. Just not feeling very inspired but thought I should update you in case something happens. Feeling a bit funky right now to be honest. Let's hope it passes quickly.



Matt

Oh and go make Dan feel better because when he's hurting, chances are I am too.

Hello Out There!



They say that these are not the best of times, but they're the only times I've ever know.
And I believe there is a time for meditation in cathedrals of our own.
Now I have seen that sad surrender in my lovers eyes,
and I can only stand apart and sympathize.
For we are always what our situations hand us,
it's either sadness or euphoria.

- Billy Joel

I love this song, mostly for just this first verse. It's absolutely wonderful and it is my thoughts exactly. Just thought you might enjoy that.

Now on to other matters.

So yesterday, I wore a pair of pants. Now if that is not shocking enough here's another little bombshell, they are just a touch too short in the length. Tragic, I assure you. So what did I do to remedy said problems. Manpris! Like Capri pants but for men.


Really I just rolled up the bottoms of my pants till they came up past my ankles a bit. I got a few funny looks, but it was comfy so to hell with them haha. Really some of the things I do, I'm surprised no one asks me if I'm gay.

Anyway, I told one of my friends about it and he suggested a start a blog about D.I.Y. European fashion. Well I told that I could do that and that I had a good deal of experience blogging. He got curious and asked where he could read my stuff. I told him in hell. haha. Well not really, but I did say that it was private and between me and the internet. He said he had a similar blog. O_o. Haha. There are lots of people out there. I'm just trying to figure out what his secret is. Oh and if he happens upon this post there is really no way I could deny it's me. Haha but then he'd have to explain what he's doing looking around in our little community. Window shopping or looking to move in? HAHA.

Speaking of bloggers. I've had the pleasure of talking to several this week. I have to say each and everyone of you is amazing in some way or another and for such you are all getting plugs and links if I haven't linked already, which considering I haven't updated my links in a while, is quite possible.

First off - Landyn of Stuck in the Middle fame. Perhaps needs no words spoken about him because his awesomeness precedes him. He also has twice as many followers as I so this is more just flattery than trying to help him out. He's a really cool guy and we spent far too much time talking one night.

Secondly - A brand new blogger who just started this month! Mikey over at Milkin' Mikey (ooo that's a dirty name, I can't believe I just realized it haha). He's only just started this month, but he's already a pro at it. First post blues? Not with him, just jumped right into things. He writes well too! On top of all that he's just a swell guy, we talked far too much last night haha.

Thrice - Ken from The (not so terrified) Lurker in the (somewhat open) Closet. He's one of our older bretheren but a good guy all around. He actually bothered to email me when I asked (hint hint). That alone makes him just far out groovy. But the fact that he's a really nice guy to boot doesn't hurt nothin.

Finally - Dan from Go Left at the Fork. Again he actually emailed me which = awesomeness in my book. A good guy who I hope to get to know better in the future. He recently vaporized (I liked that terminology so I stole it point blank) his old blog, but has started again to the joy of many. So if you were reading his blog before but can no longer find it, here you go!


It's been my great pleasure to have spoken to all these wondeful guys over msn this week. I really like talking to each and everyone of you that have been talking to for a while too though.

And if I haven't been talking to you, why the hell not?!

And because I haven't done it in a while, here are some cute boy pictures!


Hehe I like his hair


Can I just say I'm a sucker for green eyes
Like seriously
I love them so much


He kinda looks like a kid I saw at a debate tournament once
Yes debate tournaments sometimes have suprisingly cute boys



This one makes me miss cruising


Again with the gorgeous hair!


Ok I think that's all I got for today. A good post if I don't say so myself. Anyway, you Anonymi out there don't forget to check in at roll call! And everyone vote on how crazy I am!!


Peace out homeslices!

Working blows.

So I just have to say, why the hell couldn't I get a nice job in retail?

My job isn't bad mind you. I just don't know if it's for me. I'm not going to quit or anything, I'll stick with it through the summer. It's just that my boss is really stressed all the time and I feel really uncomfortable when he goes on his temper tantrums (never towards me but towards everything else). The job itself is a lot of hard work. It's been really bad on my hand and I'm seriously considering investing in a good pair of gloves. It's hard manual labour. I'm fine with that I guess, it's getting me into some sort of shape so that's good.

What sucks about the job though is it is too much like a regular job right now. It's Monday through Friday, no breaks during the week. I've been putting in 6-8 hour days regularly. I have to stay until 7 or 8 pm to get all my jobs done. It's just relentless. It's only the second week and already I feel like a weekend warrior.

At least it's doing this for me, allowing me to jam pack my weekends with as much social activity as possible. Or at least I try to. This weekend will be fun. As I said already, Pink Floyd on Friday (tomorrow! Squeee!) and then Saturday I'm going out to coffee with this girl that I used to have the biggest crush on. Like seriously, she ruined a trip to Mexico because all I could do is think of her. Well actually looking back that was one of the best times of my life haha. That's the trip that makes me say to anyone stressed out about life, let's go to Mexico. I had some pictures from that trip somewhere I'll have to find them...

Oh anyway. Coffee. What makes this a bit special for me is that she's one of the people I'm completely out to. Admittedly I haven't seen her in person since before I was out, but that's what makes this exciting for me. I'll actually be able to talk to someone face to face about boys and stuff. When we talked tuesday she even said she might have some leads... hehe things are looking up perhaps.


So sorry about the sporatic posts this last little while but yeah with this job I get so tired that I just have a hard time getting the motivation to write. Or read for that matter. That's why I like msn is that it's something I can do despite being tired.

Speaking of MSN, I have to say anyone that I've talked to this week, you all are amazing people and I have loved talking to you. That being said, let's not make this a one-week pony. Don't ever be afraid to say hi. In fact if you say hi before I do, that's one of the things that makes me feel astoundingly happy. It's like walking into a room and everyone turning and say "hi there!" and then, through the powers of the internet, I can have a conversation with each and every one of you, though conversations start to get hard around 6 people for me.

Oh and as for emails. Thanks Ken! You're still the only one who sent me an email per my request. *glares at the rest of you out there*

Also I've been quite curious about my annonymous readers. I just want to know how many of you are out there. I've got 747 hits since I started tracking with Google Analytics June 4th.

I'm going to start a roll call for all you anonymous readers in the form of a poll. I want only those that NEVER COMMENT or DON'T HAVE A PROFILE or are otherwise OFF MY RADAR to vote. I will leave it up for an ideterminate amount of time. Please ONLY VOTE ONCE (i don't even know if you can vote more than once).

And for you less anonymous types I'll put up a poll for you too.

Oh and if you are anonymous, and you do vote in the roll call poll, please do, you can still always make a comment, send an email, or whatever. I really would love to hear from you. I wouldn't be blogging if it weren't for the people I now think I've realized.

Well, that's all folks,

I'll Have the Spam spam spam spam spam spam and baked beans, but Instead of baked beans, can I have spam?

So I think the spammer's haven't gotten the memo....

"Carolina rides a big black cock"
"Red head bitch gives guy a hardon"
"Hotchicklovessuckingbigfatcock"

And so on and so forth.

Ah the junk folder, such entertainment.


Didn't really have anything to post about yesterday, it was a long day.

So was today in fact but it was better.

Went to dinner tonight with the family, we had my aunt and uncle and cousin from California in town so we went to din din to celebrate (I guess). It was nice to see them again, my cousin is apparently some golf prodigy and basketball prodigy. He's pretty cool though, tall as hell. Good kid.

Things got awkward when the check came. My Grandma isn't the most finacially well off individual. In fact she's having trouble keeping up, but she insists on paying for dinner. Well my aunt and uncle have been a bit cross lately because of money issues. You see, my grandma goes to the theater, and lately I've been joining her, she's gotten me season tickets for my birthday for two years now. Well when my aunt found out she flipped a bitch and gave my mom a nasty phone call. Well that was a while ago. And I drive my grandma to the theater and we go to dinner after most times so it's not like i'm straight up mooching. There was a question about the theater, which was awkward, but whatever. When the check came, I don't know how they did it but they bamboozled old grandma into thinking she paid the check when they picked it up on the sly. She was a bit cross when she figured it out, but whatever, it was kinda funny.

Not much else going on. Looking forward to the weekend already. Going to see the Dark Side of the Moon laser show at the local planetarium. I love seeing that show. Can't wait.


Wow that was dull hahaha.

Wanted:

One boy.

Young.

Slightly crazy like me.

Looking for meaning in life.

Not afraid to suffer a little bit.

Must be able to relocate to anywhere.

Musicians are appreciated. (it's a good way to make money when no one is hiring).


If you're ready to throw of societies shackles and join me for a quest of self-discovery and adventure, apply within.



My craigslist-classified ad.

Like it?

I'm not really posting it. It was amusing to make.

Back to normal blogging.


Went out to sailfest yesterday. It was a great party. Spent two and a half hours in traffic getting there (normally a 20 minute drive). I guess a Fed Ex truck was hit and it was carrying ammo so it burned up. It wasn't all bad though. Some cuties pulled in behind me when traffic moved a little. There were three of them. Crazy boys. Then there was a boy in a truck. Really cute.

Got to the lake. Had dinner. Then the band started playing. It was a band called Zion Tribe. They were really good actually. I think everyone had recovered from their hangovers from the revelry the night before (sailfest is a weekend ordeal) and were all boozed up again. I guess my dad looks like Tom Selleck from Magnum P.I.


He kind of does actually.

Well my dad is pretty well known out there at the lake. My favorites of my dad's friends are these two crazy people, Stephanie and her husband Dave. I guess their nephew is a racer of some sort and made it into to reknown race. So Dave, who was well drunk already (he always seems like he is though) hands a bottle of wine around to everyone in a celebratory drink. The bottle gets to me. A little swig. Then later, Stephanie, who owns the boat we raced the 80 miler on, wanted to toast to our victory. I didn't have a drink. So she poured a glass of Champagne. Mind you my parents are sitting right there still. Toast. A glass of Champagne down. Finally I get out on the dancefloor. Dragged there by my dad's friend Wendy, who offers me a sip of her Vodka Martini. I've learned not to argue with people when bearing gifts... hehe. A sip of that, down the hatch. Dance for the rest of time the band is there. My mom is introducing me to everyone, which got old. My dad is running around getting people to chug beers with him and scamming people out of money if he can. (he got a quarter for guessing that it was Washington on it) Band left. Things settle down. Midnight rolls around. I drive home. I wasn't anywhere near buzzed so don't you worry. Got home, talked to Dan for a while, HI DAN!!!, go to bed.


How fun.


I really want to get out more now. I need to be a teenager. I just don't know how to start...

Work tomorrow at 9:00 am. Joy.


Oh and people, EMAIL ME! I love getting emails and such. I get estatic when I get it. Same for snail mail, but it's never anything other than advertisments or credit card offers...


Okidokes,

Sad Face *Updated!* Happy Face!

Today I got on a big Billy Joel kick because I was going to post about Faith (I will eventually) but it made me think of the song Keepin' the Faith. Now I want to listen to Billy Joel a lot.

Problem.

I can't find Seamus.

Seamus is one of my dearest friends. He's gone missing. I've checked the usual places over and over to no avail. I haven't been too worried yet. He's showed up after being missing for a while. But it's been a while and I'm officially concerned.

Seamus is my iPod.


I miss him so much...

I'm afraid he might have slipped out of my pockets in the past couple of weeks. If that's the case he might as well be gone forever. I'm going to start a search for him soon.


Seamus if you're out there, come home soon. I miss you...



Matt


UPDATED PART BELOW

So this just happened and turn a sad event into a happy one.

It turns out Seamus was never lost in the first place. Well not physically at least.

You see I had replaced Seamus with Edgar O' Toole recently when he ran out of memory. Seamus was still a good iPod though, I don't think I ever liked giving him up. So today when I pulled him out for my Billy Joel Fix, I was just really happy. I think I'm arriving at some closure.

It turns out Edgar was hiding in the couch, I had checked under the cushions but not inside the
couch. I think I shall listen to Seamus a bit more before I give him up though.

What games technological devices can play with our emotions.

^_^

Thunderstorms fill my heart with eternal glee.

And because I felt so happy I took some picture for you to enjoy.



Yes those are lawn gnomes



My kitty! Not a good picture but i thought looked fun
My cat pictures epically fail compared to Mboys


The garden, and more pesky gnomes



My favorite shot of the bunch
It's my new desktop



Brick walls ftw



Haha I got the side of my car with the hubcaps on it



The lonely sprinkler head


The rain is even better when enjoy from the inside of a car methinks.

You all have a nice day now.
