Day 235 – Extreme Fruitarianism Day

August 31, 2006

This one was really fun. For those of you who don’t know, the fruitarian diet consists of RAW fruit and seeds ONLY! Here are a few examples: pineapple, mango, banana, avocado, apple, melon, orange, etc., all kinds of berries, and the vegetable fruits such as tomato, cucumber, olives; and dried fruits such as nuts, hazelnuts, cashews, chestnuts, etc.. So here’s what I ate today….two peaches, five apples, tons of raw apple sauce, cherries, bananas, more figs than I care to remember, and a lot of raw trail mix (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, and raisins). I think that if I were a full time fruitarian I’d have to live next to an orchard….

Day 234 – Discover who you were in a past life

August 30, 2006

Today Gabe and I tried to discover who we were in past lives. We sat in a circle, cross-legged, and sat quietly until our past lives came into view. I was a boeing old peasant, and Gabe was Sonic the Hedgehog. How is it that at age ten he is so cool?

Day 233 – Today let a dog walk you

August 29, 2006

So, I took Chellie on a walk today….or I guess I should say I tried to have chellie take me on a walk today. You see, the Boldon’s dog is a trained service dog, which means that he obeys commands and can do some amazing things (like turn on/off lights and pick up things off the floor). So he won’t just walk whereever he wants. I tried to let him walk me, but he would just get to the corner, sit and wait. If only he were less behaved.

Day 232 – Put a message on a dollar bill

August 28, 2006

I reached in my wallet and pulled out the only bill I had in there….a $10. Then I wrote, “Sorry about the herpes.” It’s hilarious on so many levels. I think I’ll write that on more bills….see if it comes back to me.

Day 231 – Eat something you’ve never eaten before

August 28, 2006

Two days ago I had cariboo and moose for the first time….I should have saved those for today….hmmmm….oh well, anyway the cariboo tasted kind of like dark turkey meat, and the moose was in the form of a hamburger, so it tasted like hamburger. For the actual day I ate a black plum tomato, which I’ve never had. It’s a black colored tomato that looks rotten, but tastes pretty good (for a raw tomato).

Day 230 – Make someone hate you today

August 27, 2006

Again, I was at a wedding today. It’s really hard to make someone ACTUALLY hate me unless I hate them. So I got several people to pretend to hate me, but no one actually hated me….or if they did I sure didn’t hear about it. My allergies are totally kicking my ass, so I’m going to take some drugs and go to bed. Boo.

Day 229 – Price tag all your possessions

August 27, 2006

I’m in Wisconsin at a wedding, and I don’t have all my possessions to price…but I do know what things were stolen by that jackass, and here are the prices:

Olypus Digital Camera – $200
10 Gig iPod – $250
Gameboy Advance SP with 8 GBA games and 16 old school Gameboy games – $400

By popular demand, here is the myspace page of the asshole that stole all my stuff. Send him an email and tell him to give it back.

Day 228 – Today, send your suggestions to the government

August 24, 2006

I sent the followig email to Norm Coleman. He’s the senator here in Minneapolis.

Dear Norm.
Stop being such a jerk.
Nate Duke

So far I have gotten no response….what a jerk.

Day 227 – Nanonap day

August 23, 2006

So, the theory is that you can take like 100 nanonaps a day (a 30 second nap) throughout the day and then you don’t need to sleep. I tried this and it is total crap. The first few times I tried it I couldn’t fall asleep at all. And then later when I tried it, I fell asleep for 15 minutes. At least I tried…you know?

Day 226 – Today draw God

August 22, 2006

I drew a picture of what I thought God looked like. I don’t think he’s like a guy with a big long white beard or anything, but I definately think there’s like a force….like, God could be this leaf…you know?

No, seriously though, I made Nick and Gabe draw pictures of God, and they’re great, but my digital camera was stolen by a fuckin’ junkie asshole, so I’ll get ’em up here soon. They’re amazing. F’reals.
