I know what you're thinking
I bet people are wondering, "Mike, why don't you ever talk about what goes on in your daily life, so why don't you list every minute detail like all these other blogs, because we really, really care, and by listing all of these details, we will all think that you are a really lucky and interesting person that we will all be instantly envious of?" Well, sure, of course people were thinking that, but I have so far decided against taking that course of action, instead choosing to commentate on socially important topics such as fear, loathing, and Terminator 3. But, I do think that you really want to know what is going on in old Fro's life. So here goes.
Yesterday, I woke up at around 1045, and had frosted mini wheats for breakfast because I felt that I really needed the variety in my life. Then, as is typically the case, I made a quick rundown of the ads in the paper and saw a dynamite deal on a digital camera. So after brushing my teeth, (hygiene comes first people) I skipped down to Target and bought a Canon something or other, and got a 128 meg memory stick for free!!!1!.
Then I stopped in Harris Teeter to pick up some of their great chicken burritos, and couldn't help noticing that all of the prices in the store were 10-25 cents more per item than at Food Lion, aint that something. Upon returning home, I saw a hellish storm brewing in the distance and approaching quickly, which can only mean one thing: Get the cover on the boat! Oh man, I'm so glad that I get to bother with something I hardly ever use and never wanted while an intense severe weather system bears down on me.
Well, as you can guess, the power went out. And that can mean only one thing: the intense and destructive "family time". I longed for the days when technology pushed us apart- like today, for example. Electricity soon returned, but since we were all, you know, very hungry and stuff, we decided on AppleBees (tm) for our dinner. Now, when you pay 8 dollars for food that you probably shouldn't have to pay 8 dollars for, you'd expect to have the plate they serve it on full of food- overflowing to the point of complete messiness, if possible. But I sure as hell got a piddly ass serving, and asked for some more rice pilaf, because I'd seemed to remember having a larger serving of rice pilaf last time I was at AppleBees (tm), when the manager joked about the manliness of my main salad entree, and no, I'm not kidding here. Anyways, I got more rice, but felt like a jackass all the same.
Then, after playing some Burnout 2 on the Xbox, (quite a lot of fun by the way), I sat down to write a placement test for my Japanese University that I will be studying at next year. I had to write an essay of about 200 characters without using a dictionairy. Now, I've only taken 1 year of japanese, I can't use a dictionairy, and it's been over 3 months since I was in a Japanese class of any sort. Needless to say, so far my essay is about 3 sentences long, and the best sentence I have is, "Japanese is pretty, but hard." So I need to get to work on that. If it's a quarter as long as this blog update, I should be in good shape.
PS. Get the Speed "5 Star collection" 2-DVD set, it's excellent.
