Good stuff.

Finally picked up the paint brush. Haven't done that in a long time! Rest assured folks, I'll put the pictures up when I'm done. Anywho, things are going pretty good. Work at the bike shop has been pretty slow so I've gotten a good amount of time off. Been doing a ton of reading lately On an especially strange, albeit fantastic book right now. Koushun Takami's Battle Royale. I heard about it before but I only remembered it when I was strolling through Barnes and Noble. It's funny, well no it isn't. I find too much at the book store and spend too much money. As a result, my reading list is extreme. It doesn't bug me though. I love reading.

So this heat has been pretty terrible. I think so at least. I was driving to work over whatever-the-heck that bridge is that is right past the high school. I was in the far right lane and saw this dude on his bike riding towards me. Pretty peculiar since I've never before seen someone riding towards me while I was in that lane. Anywho, the heat must've driven him nuts or something because he decided to flip me off for no reason what so ever! I was pretty much taken aback. Dude? Are you being serious? I was half tempted to swerve towards him while I was leaning out the window yelling: "No! You can't do that! You better put that finger down right now!" The heat must've been getting to me too I guess.

I just realized I know/see some crazy people. For example: This one old guy who calls himself "Mike with the gotee" comes into the shop every walk and just talks about his experiences. Did you know he invented the "hang ten"? He even kicked a president out of office. It was a little known president though. You may have heard of him. (Richard Nixon) Harry S. Truman was his cousin even, and he even catered all the alcohol at John Wayne's private parties on his minesweeper turned party boat. Good times with some weird characters. Speaking of which, we should all figure out some more things to do guys.

just some stuff

Nothing really too big to report. maybe a little summer activity update to go along with kevin's.

Assassin game (season 2?) - I think we should get this going again may be and start it earlier this year. I know we ran into some problems last time because some of the participants left to college. Rest assured, that will be brought into consideration. I propose maybe a cut off date so that the game doesn't run crazy long. If more than one participants are left on that day maybe a showdown at highnoon? Might be an interesting twist in the game no? So go dust off your nerf guns (some of you need to buy some even.)

Now last year a group of us went up to big bear for a little get together. What if we do something like that again? I think it'd be a ton of fun just like last year so we should consider that. I'm just trying to figure out what we could do while we are all out of school.

some updates: I'm working! I'm a part of the family business (the legit non-lethal kind. So we are clear on that..) Come visit me at my cousin's bike shop in bellflower. Buy something or bring it in for repairs. You guys would make me very unbored. I don't really have anything interesting to say besides that. Enjoy your heatwave everyone!

Ya, I got braces...once again. Just got the top row put in today. my stupid wisdom teeth through off everything hence the braces. ontop of all of that I have to get those extracted. sheesh. My teeth hurt so I figured I'd vent on how gay the next year and a half is going to be. Go listen to the new coldplay single Viva la vida. I think it's my favorite song by them. good stuff. And while you are listening to that song, drive over to my house on friday to watch some old indiana jones goodness in all its VHS goodness. all are welcome... I kid, I can think of a lot of people I wouldn't want to be there off the top of my head. may have invited a few of them already. Better put my crowbar by the door.......

On an unrelated note, I bought the movie Diary of the dead the other day and sat down to watch it with some friends. I have to say it's my favorite zombie flick. Not only is it done through the perspective of someone video taping, it's got some pretty legit characters. I don't want to ruin it for you all, but there is a pretty cool amish guy in the flick who kicks butt? And did I mention that he is deaf?
