Apparently, the dog days of summer are not conducive to good blogging. Lately, nothing has happened to piss me off, I haven’t seen anything humorous to photograph, and things have been slower in general. I thought it might be a good idea to dig through my archives and find some posts from blogs past. A clip show before fall sweeps, if you will. I have tons of Myspace and Easyjournal (anyone remember that?) blogs printed out (a project I undertook in college, when I could print copious pages for free) – dating all the way back to 2003.
I skimmed through most of them last night and this morning, and I was surprised by how utterly terrible most of those blogs were. They just went on and on about the menutiae of my daily life. Most of them aren’t even funny (except in an ironic, “I was an idiot” kind of way). I thought I would have tons of funny excerpts to post, but in reality I do not. Here are two snippets that I found mildly amusing.

You know you have a very good friend when you have a conversation like this…
EJ: So, do you wanna go in like 20 minutes?
RL: Hhhmmm…I was gonna shower, but I guess I can shower when I get home.
EJ: I was gonna shower too, but I think I’m just gonna wait.
RL: Yeah, ’cause if I shower now I’d wash my hair and then it would take me like an hour to be ready…so I’ll just put it up.
EJ: I didn’t even shower yesterday.
RL: Me neither!
So Emily and I went scrub style to Bagel Stadium. Don’t worry though, I’m really clean now.

…My newest obsession is candy that is sold in boxes. I started liking these various candies because of the noise they make when I shake the box. So far, I’ve had Jujyfruits, Junior Mints, and toinght I bought Dots and Mike & Ikes. So tonight I decided to go for a walk, just to do some reflecting. After bio I grabbed my newly-purchased Dots and embarked on a walk around one of the two lakes on campus. I thought that this nice, solitary walk would bring out all of my deepest darkest thoughts, but for the most part I just thought about my Dots and my new AE jacket that I was wearing…
Ugh. Better content forthcoming!
