What my trip to Vegas would be like if I actually went.
"Sweet. I just won $4000! ROCK! What should I do with this money?" Mike
"Make another bet shithead!" Scott
"I bet it all. Damn it. I lost. How am I going to get home?"Mike
Whew, that saved me a couple of hundred dollars and having to hitch hike all the way home.
Plus, Vegas is hot this time of the year. The time being a day, since Vegas is always hot.
My high school reunion is in a couple of weeks. Tonight I decided not to attend. One aspect
is that the cost is $40. Sorry, there are bands I did not see when the tickets were $40.
I can also spend $40 someplace else and get a little more for my money. Another thing is that
it is a five year reunion. Do you really want to know what has happened to me in five years.
Not much. I did that whole college thing, but after that. And there are only so many times
I would want to tell the story of my education degree with no desire to teach. And finally.
I really did not know that many people in high school. There is a very close bunch of people
that I'm still friends with. There is another small group that I see on a slightly regular
basis. There are a few people I wouldn't mind seeing again since we have grown apart, Sandy.
Mostly Sandy. Other then that it would be a lot of people saying hello to me, and I would
pull that "hi" thing where I avoid saying their name since I have no clue to what their name
is thing. Either I wouldn't remember you from high school or I would remember you as that
ass who was either an ass to my friends or to me. And as much as I would like to hear how
some of those guys are, I guess I really don't care. As I said already. What has really
changed in five years? Anyway.
So Final Fantasy came out this week. It was a typical japanimation plot (not anime, sorry
folks, old school here). The whole soul of the planet is hurting and we have to help it,
a pinch of unrequited love, something about being the chosen one, and finally an ending where
it makes you question what the hell just happened. I spent most of my time trying to fool
myself into believing that people were acting and not computer generated characters. I
would say about 5 or 6 times. One the best things about the movie was the previews.
Pretty much any movie I plan to see in the near future was shown.
Yeah, I'm going to see the movie of The Lord of the Rings. Oh, when
Marc (he updated recently, he is
alive, the mighty corporation did not get his soul, please relax) sees Planet of the Apes
I'll be there too. Plus they showed a Spider-man preview. Do I really have to say I'm
At work I see many applications. On these application people jot down their names, and
sometimes, if the applicant can figure out those tricky boxes on the application, they
write down their address. I came to the conclusion that I really do not like it when the
name of a person is the same as the street they live on. How would you like to live on
Saul Ln. I rest my case.
Isn't life nice when you get to see a Simpsons you have never seen before.
I really should not write when I'm tired. Wonder...wander...leave me alone, I'm a horrible
A clarification - When I said I'm looking for something worthwhile in my life I do not mean
that there is nothing amazing in life, because there is. I'm pretty happy, but I just
want something...well, more. At least something to shoot for. A goal or hobby. I'm not
quite sure. Anyway, I've noticed that this paragraph isn't funny either. Let's
This entry is for all of those who look at my page in the early afternoon. Keep it real.
As I wandered around my house after work, as I have been known to do due to a lack of sleep
and lack of energy after sitting in my chair and spinning around, I heard a news story about
how the government (yes I will lump them all together, get off my back) feels that there
will not be as large of a surplus in the budget as was believed. Thank god for that tax
My attempt at finding a job has failed due to my revival in searching the web. It was nice
while it lasted.
I added a few links, took a few off, stole a few off of my friends, and let my cat pick one.
And I still find nothing...
Due to the fact I have a lot of time at my temp position I have been spending a lot of time
trying to come up with what makes life worthwhile. By searching for this I can then set
some goals for myself. Right now I seem to be floundering around not really going anywhere.
Let me explain a little. Last Sat. night I went out and drank. Now, I have two moods
when I'm drunk. Fun happy Mike Saul, which is what showed up for the majority of the
evening, and sad deep thinking Mike Saul, which showed up around 2:00 in the morning.
At some point the idea of making something worthwhile in my life popped in my head, and it
hasn't left. I don't know. This paragraph isn't very funny.
I talk about drinking too much...
And I still find nothing...
"This application is high priority." Let me ask you this. Do you really think I actually
care if this application is high or low priority? Do I really care if this application gets
entered 15 minutes before this one? Let me tell you where you can put your high priority
Let me tell you about my weekend...nah...no on really wants to read about my weekend.
It was fun. Enough. Now on to better topics.
I finally saw Unbreakable last night.
Now, me being an already stated comic book fan I was greatly pleased to see this movie
(the facts stated before the movie can be applied to me). This movie made me first think
about what special power I have. This is a main reason I continue to try and fly. You
never know when the power may manifest inside of you. Another thing I started thinking
about was who would be my archenemy. At first I thought it might be
Quinn, but then I realized he would
be more of a second tier enemy. No one would really care about him too much, he would
be a few people's favorite, until he got revamped into a cool powerful enemy or when
he killed someone close to me since he found out my secret identity. There are other people
who are on my list to be my archenemy, but I think I should keep it to myself, but I'm
watching you. All of you. Well at least not until I can fly.

A good business idea - When I was without cable for a couple of months the one thing
I really missed was ESPN. The main reason was for the ESPN commercials. Someone
should collect all the commercials and sell them. I should also get 10-15% of the
profits due to the fact that this is my idea and not yours. Then I could definitely
forget about your fucking high priority.
At work I get to see some interesting names. Did you know Ron Champion sells trucks?
How about Max Powers? Max Powers wants to buy a truck. Ron Champion and Max Powers should
get together. They could buy and sell and buy and sell a bunch of trucks.
