    • My Stern Realization

      A couple months ago, for my birthday in fact, I asked my fiance to buy me a game for my 360. After many promises that this would be the last single player game (she only likes me playing games that we can play together... helps with our relationship building) that I would have for a while, she went out and bought me Left 4 Dead. Now, when it first game out, I had no intention of purchasing this game. I had no interest in it and didn't want anything to do with it.

      Then, after much pleading from my friend Dan, I sat down and weighed it out. He said "dude, you've got to get this game," "dude, this game is so sweet," "dude, this game has so much replay value." And you know what, he's right. The problem is, Dan is the only person I've ever played this game with (we've played it once) and gone through 2 of the episodes. Now, I can't ever get him to get online to play the fucking game with me.

      Its not that I don't mind playing it with other people, or even going online and playing with randoms, or playing it by myself... but I only got this game because he said that we'd end up playing it together and now that I have it and I'm ready to play it, he's nowhere to be fucking seen. Its like pulling teeth to get this kid to play.

      So, after that little rant, here's this. I will no longer be buying games because Dan tells me to.

      Also, if anyone else has L4D and would like to finish going through the campaign with me, that would be awesome! Thanks folks!

    • My Last FREE Month

      10 years ago

      Max_Jackson

      Here it is folks. It is June 25th and in thirty short days I will be tying the knot to the most wonderful girl in the world! I can hardly believe that things have moved this fast and its already coming down to us. It seems like just last week that I proposed and the week before that we started going out. Three weeks ago I was complaining about how all my friends were married and how I'd be single forever. My, how the times have changed.

      My groomsmen and I had our bachelor party this past weekend. Seriously, if you're not getting married anytime soon, you should still plan a bachelor or bachelorette party just to have it. We ended up getting together early in the morning and going to play paintball for most of the morning. My dad even went with us which, after the damage he dished out to my friends, turns out might not have been a good idea. He ended up shooting my friend David in the forehead and ended up shooting my brother-in-law-to-be Towner in the chest at point blank range. Apparently, the man is a force to be reckoned with on the field. And that was just the morning of the party.

      In the afternoon, we grilled out burgers and dogs and brats by the pool and had a grand old manly time. Then, a little later, we went to a Durham Bulls (our local baseball team) game. At one point in the evening I called Sally, a little disappointed, because only three of my friends had bought me booze. (The only reason I mention it, is because at her party she called me several times to let me know how drunk she was because all her friends kept buying her drinks). But, things got better as the night went on as we went to the Carolina Ale House and continued to booze up and have awesome bar appetizers. Yeah, it rocked my face off!

      So, all in all, it was a fantastic engagement. I'm sorry you all missed out. Then again, it was only open to groomsmen, so you wouldn't have come anyways. So don't feel bad, there was only eight of us in all and we tore up the night and town in the only fashion we know.

      Wow!

    • My New Thing

      10 years ago

      Max_Jackson

      I've been laughing my way through the new book I picked up called I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. Its by a guy named Tucker Max and his popularity came through writing these stories on his website a couple years back. Joe informs me that they're not all entirely true and I can see where some of these stories might be that way. He still tells them in a pretty funny way. He mainly writes his escapades from his point of view in the same way I tend to write my journals. Probably why its easy for me to understand him.

      The only difference is the fact that he is an asshole and degrades women in any chance he gets. My drunken stories involve beer and hilarity and more destruction, not sexual conquest. I guess that would be the main difference in the two of us. That, and the fact that he's a larger internet celebrity than I'll ever be. And I've come to accept that. I live with my internetivity each day and grow stronger.

      But that got me thinking. How many awesome stories do I have that no one has ever heard? Sure, we put some drunken weekend stories out on the HOB, but not the old classics. Just the ones that Joe and Dan were there to witness with me. I want to share those stories. So, for the next few entries, I'm going to collect my thoughts and divulge them to you in text. Enjoy!

      But first, I need to share one bright spot of my day today.

      - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

      I got a text message from an unknown number today around 5 PM.

      [ As a side note to this story, the other week I deleted all of the phone numbers from my contact list that I haven't talked to in over a year. Isn't it always that way though. Delete someone and sure enough, they call you the next week. ]

      So, I didn't want the person to think that I had erased there number and now didn't know who they were, so I read the message to see if I could figure it out. I couldn't.

      Random Dude I'm comin to Wilmington to find u. (all text messages are displayed as written)

      Now, if any of you know me, you know I'm a liar. I'm not an asshole, I'm a liar. And as someone once said, the bigger the lie, the easier it is to get people to believe its true. I decided to see how far I could stretch this one out.

      My Response You can try. (I live in Durham. Finding me in Wilmington would be impossible.)

      Random Dude I will and bring u back to gboro. Whats good wit u? (I think he means Greensboro. Its about 45 minutes from me, in Durham, not in Wilmington)

      My Response Same old. How about with you? (Not knowing who this was, I wanted my answers vague. I also wasn't using my signature in my texts.)

      Random Dude Still in hines. Need u to come back. (No idea. No town near me is called Hines.)

      My Response You dont need me. You caused enough trouble on your own. (Stepped out a little)

      Random Dude What do u mean?

      My Response I think you know what I mean. (Stepped out a little too far.)

      Random Dude I don't. Tell me. (He's confused. His punctuation use is getting better.)

      My Response Sneaking out to go to the fishin' hole, swiggin' straight moonshine, and other evil shannies. (No idea where that came from. Just thought I'd be a little more over the top.)

      Random Dude I'll give all that up for u. (Ummm... what?)

      My Response You said that last time. I still have the scar on my left cheek. (My thoughts here are of doing something dangerous. I don't think he's on the same page as me.)

      Random Dude It's a beautiful scar tho. So can i take u out this weekend? (I think he thinks I'm a girl. Weird.)

      My Response My weekend is filling up quickly. Anything else I add would have to be monumental. (And not with this tool.)

      Random Dude My heart is a monument. Carved in the likeness of u. ( GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY!)

      My Response I have gained weight. I hope there's room in your heart for me still. (Okay I'm bored. Let's make this stupid.)

      Random Dude There always is. I wanna put a smile back on that pretty face. (Remember, this guy texted my number.)

      My Response Thats nice of you to say. My face got bigger too. Glad to see you're accepting of that.

      Random Dude I am. Can u send me a pic? (Now I'm confused. But he wants a pic. I guess any pic will do.)

      My Response Obama.jpg
      This is a picture one of the kids in my class drew around election time.

      Random Dude Thats funny. I'm serious (Uh-oh. We're getting to the end.)

      My Response Serious about what?

      Random Dude The pic. I want 1 of u. (And there we go. Now I'm done.)

      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

      I had no response for that one. I had no good picture in my phone. I was thinking of taking a picture of the letter U and sending it to him, but one picture is enough. Plus, it was time for me to go to work at Barnes and Noble, so I was done with that clown anyways.

      I did some researching when I got home. Looks like the cell phone is registered to someone in Alabama. I don't know anyone in Alabama. How odd. They apparently knew me. Or did at one point before I got fat and they wanted a new picture of me.

      Here's an interesting local news story for you to watch. Turns out that a teacher who works at the school I work at has done something to get herself arrested.

      Allegedly.

      Fun part is, if the clip still works, when the reporter does a cut-away to a scrolling list, my name is at the bottom of the list. Awesome! I'm famous and linked to this now!

      While getting ready to take a shower at my soon to be in-laws house this morning, I noticed a copy of a Sudoku puzzle half finished sitting on the back of the toilet.

      It was at that point, I yelled for Sally to come look.

      I said, "hey look, poo-doku" and laughed. She rolled her eyes and left the bathroom. I guess kids are more mature in 5th Grade.

    • My Plan For The Summer

      10 years ago

      Max_Jackson

      At the beginning of the month I started my new healthier eating program. It basically consisted of cutting out all sodas and cutting out sweet treats (as in desserts) in replace of healthier treats (as in fruit and yogurt). I'm trying my best to get to a certain weight before my wedding in July and I'm not much into large exercise programs, so I'm keeping up my daily routine and just watching what I eat.

      I wanted to get to around 200 lbs. for the wedding because I thought that would make me feel better about my appearance in a suit standing in front of my closest friends and family. So I weighed myself the other day. Now, the last time I weighed myself I was in the 240 lbs. range and knew I needed to do some work, but when I weighed myself at the 1st of the month, I only weighed 216 lbs. I was completely thrown off.

      I guess I have less work than I thought I did. 16 lbs. in 3 months is more than doable I think.

      My plan is to weigh in at the beginning of each month and adjust accordingly, but if you guys have any opinions about things that have worked for you in the past, I'm open to hearing them. I've never been a health nut, but I am open to suggestions.

      So, Heather told me to look this song up on YouTube earlier this evening. And I've listened to it at least 25 times since she told me to listen to it the first. I'm sorry, but when your song is this catchy, how do you not make a billion dollars off of it. Watch and Listen to This. Song's by "the lonely island."

    • My Journal For Joe

      Max_Jackson

      Today I had to watch my class while most of the Second Grade teachers had a team meeting this morning. While making sure they got unpacked, made their lunch choices and turned in their homework... a conversation unfolded between two little boys. I got to hear the end of it and defuse the situation. This is what happened.

      Little Boy # 1: Mr. Winstead, Little Boy # 2 said the "c word"!

      Mr. Winstead : Oh god, when did they start teaching the c word to children! "WHAT?"

      Little Boy # 2 : No I didn't!

      Little Boy # 1 : Yes, you did. I heard it. He said - whispers and spells - C-R-A-P.

      Mr Winstead : Oh thank god! Both of you go finish your morning work .

      I figured that might get a chuckle out of a few people. Carry on with your evenings.

      I've always supported CAD, and I've enjoyed the story arc because I'm interested in the characters. But this was the last straw for me. It jumped the shark.

      I could go for some free American beer.
      I found some Coors and Bud in a liquor store a while back, but that stuff was pricey. Apparently because its all exotic and imported and stuff. Yuh huh!

      Directed By: Kevin Fair
      Guest Stars: Alaina Huffman (Black Canary), Alan Ritchson (Aquaman), Phil Morris (John Jones/Martian Manhunter)

      UPDATED 7/27/08: New spoilers from the Comic-Con preview:
      - Lois dresses as a maid to infiltrate the Luthor mansion.
      - Green Arrow shoots Clark for some reason.


      UPDATED 7/11/08: Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello dropped a big bomb in his latest "Ausiello TV" vodcast: Chloe says yes to Jimmy's proposal, setting the stage for a possible wedding later this season. Sorry, we don't make this stuff up...
      - The CW said on screen that the premiere is October 2, so we're really confused about the premiere date now.

      UPDATED 7/7/08: TV Guide has revealed the premiere date: September 18.

      UPDATED 7/3/08: Chances are good for Tom Welling fans that we will see an unshaven Clark as the story picks up a few months after the previous finale.


      UPDATED 7/2/08: TV Guide has answered several of the questions about who might be saving Clark, and some new tidbits:
      - Clark's rescuers will be none other than the Justice League. Expect to see not only Justin Hartley as the Green Arrow; Alan Ritchson will be returning as Aquaman, Alaina Huffman is back as the Black Canary, and Phil Morris makes his return as John Jones, the Martian Manhunter.
      - The magazine also reveals what Clark's surprise is for Lois: He's taking the job at the Daily Planet, right acros from her desk. "This season's theme is 'double identities'," executive producer Kelly Souders told TV Guide. "It's about the Superman identity emerging as Clark Kent tries to maintain a normal life  or the appearance of a normal life."
      - "The cameraderie as they work side-by-side that everyone loves from the DC Comics and all the Superman lore is going to come to fruition this year," Souders continues. "The two of them are thrown together in some unfortunate situations for Clark. She becomes a little bit of an obstacle to him saving the world, when he's on a deadline."

      UPDATED 6/27/08: The "Researcher," "Scientist," and "Guard" roles are involved with Chloe's storyline.
      - When Clark returns to Metropolis, he'll have a big surprise for Lois.

      UPDATED 6/25/08: The new season begins several months after the events of the Season 7 finale.
      - Casting is currently underway for "Kat," a young, eager assistant for Tess, who also makes her first appearance in this episode; and "Nikolai," a man who works on a boat with Clark near the Arctic. Roles also now being cast include a Researcher, a Scientist, and a Guard.
      - Clark is brought home by some possibly-surprising rescuers.
      - Oliver Queen (Justin Hartley) returns in this episode.

      Everyone likes colourful journals with images and such.
      Beats a wall of text.

      Though, to be fair - your journals are very colourful in that you paint a picture with your words.
      Us un-creative types need to use photos to achieve something similar.
      All in all it's probably good you don't post photos to illustrate your writings *coughbeachbathroomfloorcough*
