Don't ever get the coffee from the Norfok International Airport.
I made that mistake last night while waiting for my mom's flight to come in. Needless to say, to make a long story short, I had to run to the bathroom when I got home last night. Never again. 'Wasted $4.00 on that coffee too.
Was that too much information?
The Krispy Creme in Hampton is being torn down and rebuilt soon, which sucks because I'm going to miss the retro look of the place. Sure, I haven't been in there since I was 5 years old, but I drive by the place at least once a week, its going to be sad not seeing it there anymore. I took that picture on a rainy day though the passenger door window back in November of 2002, I believe. (I dyed it green for a layout I was going to do this one time).

This Cliche' And Even More If The Price Is Right!
I went up to the attic for the first time since we moved here three years ago. I found a whole bunch of stuff from middle and high school that I just nonchalantly threw up there when we moved in. I took a look at some of that stuff and I think it should stay in the past, up in the attic. One of the things I found was an old backpack I had found in a trashcan during a locker clean up in 7th grade with like a hundred peices of paper in it and assorted binders with all my scribblings in it. Didn't I hear of a journal back then?
But look what else I did! I totally forgot I drew Mr. Noisy when I was in either 8th or 9th grade:

Boat Show, Gotta Go
I'm sitting in my room laughing at my dog Bitsy. I saw out of the corner of my eye a few minutes ago something black that moved, and I got scared and I looked over and saw that Bitsy had snunk in my room. We both startled ourselves. I feel sorry for Bitsy sometimes. She has these really bad skin allergies, and the fur on her paws are gone and on the side of her face due to all her itching and biting. We've tried everything for her (pills, sprays, baths) but she still scratches. I'm starting to think its just a habit now.
Yesterday was Vance's birthday. I sent him an birthday e-mail as usual, and as usual like every year since 2000, he writes me back thanking me.
Brandon (a guy in my English class) talked to me in the lounge before English class. We talked about:
We stat next to each other in English class, and he told me that my thesis statement was too long for our research paper. I had to agree with him on that.
I have to go out tomorrow and find an AOL 8.0 cd, (my 8.0 is screwing up, so I'm just going to install over it) how sad it that? I used to get those things in the mail all the time, and I threw them away and now I need one.

I've Owned Softer...
Sarah sent me a cd and a postcard from Ed Helms' improv show "Charlene" today in the mail. Wait, its her birthday, and she's sending me stuff...that's not right. Here's the CD cover!
And yes, I did own a pair of "the worlds softest socks" (look at the top image very carefully) I bought them at some sock outlet at the prime outlets in Williamsburg back in 1998. They were pretty soft, but the fuzz wore off on them quickly.

>Not Putting It Past...
I borrowed my mom's bathroom (since she has a fan in hers) and I went to wash my hands, and I didn't see the hand soap, and I looked under the cabinet and there wasn't any air freshener either. Did she pack her hand soap and air freshener? I wouldn't put it past her. Now that I think about it, the years I went with her to see her family in Alaska, she did bring her air freshener with her. Hand soap? I don't know. I don't think we were using hand soap, I think we were still just using regular bar soap to wash our hands with.

My Day Offline
I was watching this special on Trio called "Brilliant, But Cancelled", and they brought up the 1994-1995 primetime cartoon, "The Critic. There was a segment about the show in which the writers and the creators of the show said that one of the reasons why the show failed was because people thought it was too intelligent, and they didn't get the jokes -- what?! I was ten and eleven when the show was on, and I got like 80% of the jokes. And they also said that they made Jay Sherman too much of a loser. That's what made people love Jay. He was a loser! People could identify with that.

You know, I've never seen the beginning of National Lampoon's Vacation until today. I've seen the middle and the end a trillion times, but never the beginning. But I do remember seeing the scene when Clark shows the kids the map of their trip on that old skool hook up to your TV computer monstrosity when I was a little kid. (I didn't write this part in my journal) every time that movie is on, I always start watching it in the living room by myself, and then my dad comes on, and we always watch it together. It's the movie that bonds the family!
I haven't gone online yet today. I've spent the whole day sitting on the couch watching the o'l television. This originally started out as me waiting for dad to come back from the firehouse so we could go to Wal Mart (mom's out of town this week) together, but he didn't come home until almost three, so we decided to just go out tomorrow. I sat and watched almost all of the Unwrapped Marathon on Food Network. Does anybody else think they're going too far with Unwrapped? I mean they're just pulling stuff out of their rears now with the ideals on the show, and they have a game show based on the show now.
I also flipped back and forth to Comedy Central. I saw the ad for the special a few times, and I got it on tape twice the two times I was upstairs today. I saw bits of pieces of:
