Day 264 – Wear a sticker that says, “I’m lonely. Please talk to me”

September 29, 2006

I’m so bummed that I didn’t do this one. We had a yard sale today, & I totally forgot to do it. It’s too bad, ’cause I’m sure people would have talked to me. In fact, I met a neighbor who did nothing but talk to me anyway. Damnit.

Day 262 – Write a love letter to the mail (wo)man

September 27, 2006

I really like my mail carrier. She’s one of them “femail ladies” (the Simpsons….duh). Anyway, I usually talk it up with her whenever she drops off a package, ’cause I do a lot of eBaying. So today I slipped a letter for her in with my mail to be delivered. She hasn’t said anything yet, but it went something like this:

Rain, hail, sleet, snow.
Oh how I love thee so.
Good mail carriers are hard to find.
I’m so glad you’re mine.

Maybe we’ll go on a date…..

Day 261 – Praise an unsung achievement

September 26, 2006

I was pretty excited by the woman who put the four things that Nick and I bought at Target into three bags. So I told her how great it was that she was wasting plastic bags. I don’t think she took it as “praise”, but who cares….She told me some nonsense about company policy and stuff like that.

Day 260 – Work out your alcohol tolerance level scientifically

September 25, 2006

Just for those of you who don’t know, I don’t drink. Never have, never will (except that one time that I ate a bunch of bananas and drank some non-alcoholic beer until I puked). So today I took a tiny sip of wine and determined, scientifically, that I couldn’t tolerate it. God, that shit is gross.

Day 259 – Dance with death

September 24, 2006

I ran three red lights. I invited a stranger from craigslist over to my house. I almost fell in a swimming pool at a party….twice. I stood next to a smoker. I rode a skateboard without a helmet or pads. I crossed the road with my eyes closed. I didn’t die.

Day 258 – Go to prison

September 24, 2006

I tried. I mean, I stole some mouse traps from the dollar tree, and no one even noticed. I guess it’s harder to go to prison than you’d think, huh?

Day 257 – Discreetly give people the finger

September 22, 2006

So, apparently, I was too discreet, because I flipped people off all damn day long and not a single person mentioned it to me. I went to Jackass Number Two (Fucking amazing) with Franklin and the Jipp and they didn’t notice. I flipped off the ticket taker, the lady at the bank, the woman at the asian grocery, every member of the Boldon family, the librarian, and my roommates, and I got no responses. What a let down. Jeez.

Day 256 – Egg & Spoon day

September 21, 2006

A rainy day filled with comic books, anime, and video games, but no spoon and egg. Sorry, guys…I’m slipping in my old age. I’ll really do it up tomorrow.

Day 255 – Change your name

September 20, 2006

When things were changing over the the new millennium back in 1999….my friend Sean and I decided to give ourselves new names. Mine was Sargent Barakas….mainly ’cause I wanted people to call me ‘sarge’. It never really took. Today for my new name, I chose Sean’s name which was Phillip Bathtube Withwater. I made Nick and Gabe call me Phil all day….That lasted about two hours, and then they just gave up…as did I. It was fun while it lasted though.
