      Well life has been crazy this summer but tons of fun. I've been traveling a lot to visit random friends all over the U.S. and its been pretty cool. I drove out west in June and saw the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, LA, etc. A few weeks ago i was visiting America's hat, AKA Canada, it was pretty cool up here i realized the further north you go the more like the south Canadians become...backwards people. Also i've discovered that the world is coming to an end. How you might ask? The weather has been NUTS, in winter Tennessee received record snow in spring record rain and in summer record heat. The world is gonna end in one super weather event lol. I really need to find a job now since ive spent most of my money on travel, but that wont be hard. Life is good in every way shape and from no complaints of any kind. How are all of you? How has your summers been? Any new exciting changes?

      So as some of you know Nashville my dear home was hit hard by a crazy flood and my apartment is gooooone. So i'm some what homeless right now until FEMA decides to give me some help. Also my car had sever flood damage so i dont have transportation either...FML. Soooo I'm living with my friends and about to start summer school so I can get back on track and graduate eventually some time soon hopefully. Sorry I haven't been writing many journals I've been really really busy with work and school. But now that i dont have expenses now that everything is destroyed maybe i can have some money in my pocket, gotta look on the bright side! So whats new with everyone? Any crazy weather on ya'lls end? Oh and this is only a bit of what the flood did to us.

    • Christmas adventures

      9 years ago

      Bobthefarmer

      Well this Christmas was certainly interesting. So first I was suppose to cook which made me nervous, but my fears were calmed when mama said that i could just call her and she would help me out. So i wake up on Christmas eve to find that my internet had been shut off due to lack of payment even though I sent in my bill FML. So after freaking out for a minute i decide i might as well attempt to cook which was...difficult to say the least. The weird part is the turkey turned out awesome but my dressing and other sides turned out terrible...like on fire...not kidding FMLx2. I didnt think that dressing caught fire randomly...there should really be a warning in the cookbook about that. However, as my girlfriend and I were battling the fire that once was dressing I get a phone call from a friend asking if she can bring anything. So I had what seemed like a good idea and called up everyone who was coming and asked if they could bring something for the meal. Well like I said it seemed like a good idea until people started coming with random foods that they had left in their freezer or pantry. So when we finally set down to eat we had the following: Turkey, green beans, twelve microwaveable burritos, an oven baked pizza, instant dressing and a big bowl of salad. After the meal we started exchanging gifts and watched a bootleg version of Paranormal Activity(yup getting into the christmas spirit right by getting the crap scared out of me). . I love my friends because they would be the only people in the world who would bring that much random food to a Christmas dinner and watch scary ass movies instead of normal overplayed Christmas movies. So it was a Christmas I will remember for the rest of my life no doubt, but to tell you the truth all those food go oddly well together. How was Christmas for ya'll?

    • Merry Chirstmas

      Hey everyone, how is the holiday season treating all of you? So I'm being forced to try my hand at cooking this Christmas which is probably the worst idea my girlfriend has ever had. She thinks that I'm a 5 star chef from when we first started dating and I cooked her a few meals. However when i cooked for her all those times I had mama on AIM telling me how to cook everything step by step (Thanks Mama that did win her heart lol). I guess I'm gonna try cooking on my own this year and since I'm feeding 10 people I feel like its either gonna be a delicious Christmas miracle or I'll be ordering Chinese takeout like off the movie A Christmas Story. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, or whatever holiday you celebrate. I also hope you all have a good time with plenty of food, drink, and family.

      Love Yall

      Well i have been back in the US for almost 3 weeks now and boy a lot has changed. It seems like Americans are more divided under Obama then under Bush. Apparently the change Obama was talking about during the election was not what America had in mine. I guess we will see if Obama has what it takes to overcome and reunite. It's also`kind of odd to walk through the streets not be constantly worried about the people around me being possible insurgents. A friend of mine said i could be suffering from post traumatic stress, but I'm not bothered by what i've seen and done. On a brighter note after using a haji toilet (A hole in the ground) for the last few months i realized i took a real toilet for granted. Also i took for granted the ability to watch American football which is what I'm about to get ready for. I also can't decide whether or not to re-enroll in in school or to take a semester and travel the US. Any thoughts? I hope all is well with you all and maybe on my road trip, if i decide to take one, i can stop by and see some of you. Anyways Go Titans!!!

I hope all is well with you all!

    • i love 7 year olds

      So i called my buddy back in the states today who has a 7 year old kid named Zac. He wanted to say hey and the first thing he says is "Dirka Dirka Dirka Mohammad Jihad, Thats how they say hello over there right?" At first i thought it was his dad making a joke but that was this kids serious question. Apparently he has been watching Team America. I laughed my ass off for like 5 mins before i realized he was serious. Then it turned into an awkward conversation about how tv sometimes will poke fun at people and not actually be truthful. My buddy also told me that his son asked if i was in dirkastan So in short tv rots the brains of 7 year olds but its funny as hell for a 7 year old to say dirka dirka dirka mohammad jihad. Im home in 22 days!!!!!

      yes, this past week we have started noticing an odd smell, like kerosene. Dauphin Island is closed to swimming now as the oil has started coming ashore. Fishing is now closed in our area. Birds and small animals are being founds drenched in oil. Sad smiley5.gif

      It is so sad for the commercial fisherman in the area. They were just starting to recover after Katrina, and now this. Most of them don't know if they will ever recover now. It's the same story from Louisiana to Gulf Shores. We've all taken a beating.

      Glad to hear things are looking up for you though. Is the cleanup going well after the flood?

      Well for the moment all the printing is being done right here at my house, so autographed prints are the same as non autographed. Eventually printing will move out of house, and then it'll cost more / be slower to be shipped autographed. smiley0.gif

      So, you should conquer your fear for you, not me, but if you want to do that for my birthday, I say hooray!

      Not my words - but I'm a huge Dune fan:

      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.


      Yes, it's stupid to give advice from a scifi classic, but I'm out of homespun mama stuff tonight. smiley0.gif

      Right now I'm exhausted, but have to rest up tonight and go back to work tomorrow. My office on campus is only about 10 minutes from the hospital so I can go on the way in and at lunch.

      I HATE crutches. I'm a terrible clutz and am really dangerous when using them. I'm sure you'll do better, since you're younger and probably coordinated. Keep me up to date.
