Day 82 – Design and wear your own t-shirt.

March 31, 2006

I totally forgot about this one until late in the day. So I wore an old Cheese Weed shirt that I helped design back in high school. I sorta get some points, right?

I also made a cool ass shirt out of a flat bottom paper bag, but Eli has yet to fix the photo option on my site, so y’all don’t get to see it. But you can email Eli and tell him to get his ass in gear (elisfanclub at gmail dot com). Or you could join his fan club….seriously.

UPDATED: Thanks Eli. You rule

Day 81 – Deja Vu Day

March 30, 2006

Today, much like children’s day, was a breeze for me (I wonder if the upcoming “act like you’re 75 years old day” will be more of a chore?). The main reason for this was that I live my life like a child/teenager all the time. I did try to act more moody though. I slept in, ate junk food, played video games (the same ones), and stayed up late watching (the same) movies and chattin’ up with people using IM. What more do you want from me?

The best damn documentary I’ve ever seen.

March 29, 2006

I just watched Loose Chance (2nd Edition), and it’s amazingly great. If you wanna watch it for free go here for a crappy google video version of it. Tell you friends. Tell your enemies. Tell everyone.

Day 79 – Apply for a job you have no chance of getting

March 28, 2006

Today I went to rayjobs.com and applied for a Russian Interpreter position. I know zero Russian (except what I’ve learned from Comrade Kitanya ‘Kitka’ Irenya Tantanya in “Batman The Movie”) so I have absolutely no hope of getting this job. It would be pretty cool though, because the job is in the Russian Federation in a town called Votkinsk.

Day 78 – Today, make a baby!

March 28, 2006

I woke up this morning and asked Ingrid if she’d make a baby with me.

“OK, Ingrid, time to make a baby.”
“No.”
“Please?”
“Are you serious?”
“Yeah, you know, for the 365 days project.”
“No way.”
“Well, you don’t have to keep it, you can abort it. I don’t care.”
“You’d better go find someone else.”
“What if I just go and find a public restroom, put some on a toilet seat and hope for the best?”
“That’s horrible.”
“Well, I’ve got to do something, or else I’ll only get 2 points for the day.”
“All this over one lousy point?”
“Yeah.”
“You’re ridiculous.”

I asked Monica if she wanted to make a baby, and although she didn’t acutally use the word “no”…the answer was no.

Day 77 – Payback day

March 26, 2006

So a few months ago I sold several NES games on eBay. I sold then with a starting bid of $0.01 and $4.00 shipping. And if you bought two or more, the shipping was $4 for the first and $2 for every one after that. So, this guy, insane50, won six auctions (8 games) and then refused to pay because the shipping was too high. When you bid on something on eBay you’re required to pay for the item. I had the postage costs posted in the auction. I even offered to reduce the rate, but he just flat out refused. He also threatened negative feedback. So I left him negative feedback, and he did the same for me. He also called me a “stupid fuck” in one of his polite emails.

So today I signed him up for a bunch of really annoying spam email sites. I also signed him up for a whole bunch of gay male porno websites. He seems like the kind of guy that would be really upset by that kind of thing. If you want to do the same his email address is Badasscalypso@aol.com.

Day 76 – Track down the people behind dogshit

March 25, 2006

I went to Powderhorn Park, a cool park just a hop skip and a jump from my house, and started using my tracking skills. I followed a few people with dogs around the lake, but not a single dog had to poop. Weird, huh? At this point, I realized that this activity wasn’t really going to pan out. So I decided to do a little something else.

I have always wondered what was on the island in the middle of the lake, and it’s been at least two and a half years since I fell through the ice, so I decided to give it a go. Now, it’s important to note that it’s been above freezing here in MNPLS for at least 5 days. I cautiously put my foot on the ice, and although slushy, it was pretty thick and solid. I slowly walked across to the island and found it quite boring on the whole. There was a pretty cool bird house and a ton of empty snail shells (I assume eaten by the birds), but not much of anything else.

Then I came home and played a bunch of Dragon Warrior II on the NES, which is a great game.

PS. For all of you Macalester people out there, take a look at the newest Macalester Today magazine. Look at my friends from Chicago on page 45 and see if you notice anything out of place. I think congratulations are in place for Mr. Smith.

Day 75 – Eat with chopsticks

March 24, 2006

I’ve been eating with chopsticks more and more on a daily basis, so this one was a sinch. I decided to eat some difficult things. I started off with a bowl of granola and rice milk. It was kinda hard, but when one employs the slurping method, it becomes much easier. The rest of the day was filled with Green curry on rice, pretzels, and vegan pizza pockets (yum).

Day 74 – Reconnect with the outside world

March 23, 2006

Today I talked to a few people that I have not talked to in a while. I spoke to Matt Zatkoff (briefly through Im), had breakfast with Ian Allison, laughed at a great Neil Hamburger joke with Sean Ellis, & spoke to a sleepy Franklin Harris on the phone. I also read a newspaper. That part sucked.
