      Turns out i'm still kicking around here in Maryland, and haven't yet kicked the bucket. I'm in the middle of too many things to actually write them all down, esp since I have to be at work in less than an hour.

      So, I'll highlight the major issues and happenings!

      1.) Shanna and I are still dating. Things are marvelous in this part of my life, which is making me realize that life is short - if you don't love what you do, change it. If you have doubts, you know deep down that there is something better out there. I haven't had these feelings about Shan. She's perfect. I just saw her last night, and I miss her already. No joking. I wish I could just tip my head - and rest it on hers. (Sappy, i know. Deal with it.)

      2.) Work is work. Apparently you still have to put in massive hours to make massive dollars. This is something that I would like to change in the future. One condensed hour - Jamb-packed with all the stupid one-liners by employees, all the lame overachieving efforts by management to "improve" our work condition by cramming four employees into an office big enough for a hampster cage - and then daring to say that it would help the teamwork attitude.

      3.) Everything else falls under the "Misc." catagory. Which really sucks considering I haven't done a whole lot of anything else. I need to start drawing again. I really do.


      Well, if you've stuck with me this far - You deserve a raise, which you will then be stuck into a broomcloset and will be given a blue ribbon for adding to the teamwork environment of the establishment, where we (Mgmt.) will feed you dumb one liners ala Officespace.

      Aren't you all glad i'm back?

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

      I missed you also.

    • I'm not gone for good...

      I decided today that this site is waaay too good for catching up to a lot of my friends who don't like to email.

      I'll be sticking around now. : )

      In other news...

      Shanna is incredible.

      I gave her $60 to get groceries the other day while i was at class, and she went all out. My fridge is full, my cupboards are full, and she bought me a pot and pan also. She says she went over the $60 and I believe her. THEY ARE FUUUULL.

      Also, for those of you that know him... "Scock" is in North Carolina, taking a trip with my money (long story short, he owes me rent money) and I was thinking about taking all of his things from his room and setting them up perfectly aligned in a 10 x 10 square in the backyard. I'm not incredibly cruel, i'd run an extension cord out to the setup. : )

      Last but not least, I have another room-mate. Matty B is his name, and his game is 'being hardcore thug'. He walks around the house with his hat kicked sideways, zipup hoodie unzipped to show his tanktop off, and a bluetooth headset always on. He's rugged or something. I don't know him all that well, but he did the dishes yesterday, so he can't be all that bad. Ha!

      Keep in touch everyone!

      I'm on the verge of deciding whether or not i'm going to leave the site.

      This isn't like - "Oh man, i have to sign off now..."

      More like, I'm going to now leave and not sign on ever again.

      My myspace account is gone, my jeskidsworld site is next.

      For those of you who still want to get ahold of me, (you know who you are - my true friends here) You can reach me at nickbrian@gmail.com

      Be back in a week or so to check if i'm still wanted around these parts.

      Miss you all,

    • 2007 Academical Awardsmenship Awards

      12 years ago

      nblabrant

      welcome to 2007, i trust you can find a seat soon so i can begin my presentation of awards...
      *sips water, and waits for you all to park your asses*
      ...ok, now that we are all here - and you are ready to get your grimy paws on an award - i'll start a.s.a.p.

      E231986 - As my brother, you are given an honorary award. I mean, you haven't NEEDED to do anything for it... I'm just proud you tried. PS: You're going to need a helmet if you keep bashing your head like that.

      RBuffordTJ - Everyone's favorite red-neck is back in action, with this last year bringing us such favorites as... ok, there's only one. When the guy with the 'stache gets all ticked off and starts rambling on-and-on about whatever irks him at the moment. : ) Buff, you are awarded the "Ranty Rantsman Award".

      FRUNTCASTER - Ok, there aren't enough words in (insert the language that hummingbirds speak here) to describe the man-love i have for this individual. He has gone above and beyond all expectations as a member of the NRA, PTA, and recently 2Hix. For his achievements in the last year (including a couple well known friends around these parts to his "friend list") I give him the "I'm almost good enough to be too good for you peasant-folk Award." Keep it up Frunts, you are a talented individual, with a little crazy ninja midget trapped inside. But inside the crazy ninja midget lies a heart, which is almost bigger than the crazy ninja midget. Don't ask. Your anatomy is all shifty.

      Beckyfruit - I haven't known you long, but from what I know - you have this adventurous nature which i really admire. In the last year, you've done a pile of things that would take an enormous amount of strength to do... I know. Leaving one's friends for a clean start in a new state is something i think i trademarked a long time ago. Besides that, you've recently taken an interest in Photoshop - which i think (i really do!) you are getting pretty good at. I'd have to say it's pretty Jew-tastic. Heehee... ugh. Semantics aside, you are a great person - and I hope to see you soon. For your award, i give you the "Pierced Pom-pom of Pearly Whites". Not sure what it means, but i think it has to do with toilets or teeth... and piercings. ...dotdotdot...

      Tsunade - Hmmm... if a picture speaks a thousand words, this young lady has outwritten many an author just in the last week alone. She may or may not be the most busy artist on the face of this green earth (although it wasn't very green in NYC when i was there last). I really hope that she is ready for the tons and tons of attention that Drawn by Pain is going to bring her and Jess. For her respect and dedication to the arts, Erica receives the "Drawn by an Exceptionally Creative Mind" Award. PS: Da Vinci himself would be jealous of your computer equipment. Do all those old dead guys proud. : )

      Rue Morgue - Emily, Emily, Emily... Why not the blue or green? : ) You may be the most glistening person i've ever met who hides behind a veil of darkness. Your smile is capable of shining light in the darkest tombs, but that very light is the one that brings back the past. I can't wait till you can - "Light up, Light up" - and notice the future is much brighter than you could ever give it credit for. : ) For your ability to somehow stumble through my gruff exterior, and trip up my head and heart - you are given the "P.F.McTits FFFFFFFFfffffffffffffffsssssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhtttttttttttttttttttttttt=/o/ Award". And just remember, we'll always have that moment where Dragon and Sandy the potato ride into the mushroom cloud. ; )

      GirlyCaboose - Haven't talked to you in ages, but that doesn't mean that you don't get an award. I do remember you are a Minn Wild fan, and you worked at a coffee shop. You like tennis also... so, i give you the "Gaborik Espresso Volley" Award. Not sure what that means, but hey - there's always eBay. Sell the award, and buy the one you want. : )

      Jeskid - to the most stressed New Yorker. I can't express the type of inspiration you are to the hundreds, if not thousands out there in Jeskidsworld. : ) I mean it man, you are one talented Mothe****ker. To you (in future hopes), i give the "I seen that mothe****ker back when he was just Jeskid" Award. Keep it real. I'll never be your fan... but always be your friend (and a fan of your work... who am i kidding? The guy has pure liquid-gold talent!).

      Emily_Waters - since i really know nothing about you other than you are the attractive young actress from Drawn by Pain, i'm going to give you the "Budding Starlet" Award. Wear it well... like that pink and black number from the promo film. *growls like a cat* heehee.

      Stupid - Ok, Chantell... I'm going to cut to the chase... you get the "i'm pretty sure i'm going to talk to you soon, although I don't really have a lot to say to you other than i'm pretty sure Becky thinks a lot about you and i think i already said that, so i'd have to come up with something else to say, which would be... not sure, i'm not very good at starting conversations" Award. I had to get three extra little brass pieces to fit that title on the trophy, which was actually a bowling championship trophy. Sorry, they ran out of the ones with the Academical Awardsmenship Awardsman on top. : )

      lukemckay - From your #1 fanboy... which isn't really as much as a fan as a guy who thinks your art is fun to color and stuff, i'd say that you award would be... the.... "Dammit man, get my bix in the mail!! I'm pretty sure the snowman pron drawn on the outside of the packaging has long since melted by now" Award. Or should i list the award as "Bewbs = 2d" Award? : )

      Becca - i'm not so sure i should post this, because it's more reminiscient than a present deal... but i'd still say that becca gets the "Hipster-Humanitarian" Award for picking the perfect song to help me through my Mother's fight with cancer. So, without further ado - the "All the Umbrellas in London" Award goes to Becca. Thank you. :'' )

    • Catch up time!

      12 years ago

      nblabrant

      Ok, the last week has been a doozy.

      First things first;

      NYC - on Tuesday, I went to Manhattan. Turns out the city is still as big and chaotic as the first time i went, but this time - it seemed to be a little more favorable. I found i knew my way around a little better - even though i had to use a map to decode the subways. I got to go to the Empire St. Building, Times Square (second time was much better... it was dark, and the lights were amazing!), Battery Park, and Ground Zero. I could go on and on about this city - it was fairly overwhelming to view in a day. You feel like you have to try and absorb it all... so i did. Left Manhattan through Penn Station feeling wasted and exhausted.

      Wednesday: I can't really remember a lot of wednesday, i think it was spent sleeping a lot - and trying to figure out what day it was. I remember getting up at some dangerously un-responsible hour of the day (three-ish?) and not sleeping until i got on the train again to go to...

      Washington, D.C.: Thursday, my cousin (Leifer Baby) and I went to our nation's capital... which was so deep in history, it was fairly underwhelming. I wanted to leave as soon as i got there. For those of you that know me, i'd like to think of myself as a little technological - if not "future friendly". While the history was impressive in WaDC, I set me off a bit that there was nothing that even closely resembled our future as a nation in the capital. (I know, we don't know where we're going if we don't know where we've been... blah) It just seemed like this whole capital deal was a bit o' a waste of time for me. Feel free to argue if you think i'm a complete turd or communist or something much worse, like "a terrorist cell member", because I didn't sleep and decided to visit Boringsville, USA.

      Friday: Yet another day i don't remember a whole lot... I slept in, woke up late, went to the mall (yay for me, the teenager wannabe) and bought a sweatshirt that i'm pretty sure is a womens size. (serves me right for not trying it on at the store) I put it on when i got home, and strained to get the zipper shut, warning passers-by to duck and cover - lest there be a case of zipper shrapnel.

      Saturday: Ask me later, i'm sure something stupid and ridiculous will happen.

    • Holidays... Alone.

      12 years ago

      nblabrant

      I'm like that kid from "Home Alone"...

      except my family didn't leave me, i left them. Driving clear across the country in search of happiness, only to find out that happiness is only what you make of it. I miss them so much this holiday season. I miss my Mom's cookies. I miss my Dad's messed up bed-head on Christmas morning. I miss my brothers and sisters alternately yelling and laughing...

      I miss them so much.

      After leaving Montana, i thought that this would be a new life for me. I was fairly selfish, thinking that all i had to do was bolt on out of there - and a more interesting life would be dropped on my plate like a 30oz steak. Blam.

      The longer i'm out here on the east coast... the more I am starting to believe that life is no longer a happy dream, and i have to fight to keep what i want. I need to push to create my life how i want it, and stretch the bonds i have with family and friends to further myself.

      So, Merry Christmas (or Happy Hannukah) to everyone, and give everyone in your family a great big hug...

      ...i would if i could. : )

    • I have the idea...

      12 years ago

      nblabrant

      ...now i just need the time. : )

      For those of you who don't know ALL about me, i'm going to do a little update. I'm working on creating a website (purely for my entertainment) to help me escape my teensy bit o' a blue spell. It's an idea I came up with a while back, and sat on for quite a while. I'm not usually a spur-of-the-moment kind o' guy... I'd like to think this idea has had enough time sitting in one spot, that it is no longer a flop of an idea. I think it might have really "made the cut". : D

      Hope i can get it up soon, so i can spare you the time of waiting for something that might be a complete flop. ; )

      Talk to you all soon!

      PS: One-word hint = "Narboy".

      (down) I put in my two-week notice today at work out of frustration...

      (chugchugchugchug) Waited for him to get his email, then had a closed-door meeting.

      (up) ...and took it back when my boss offered to cover tuition if i pay for books.

      (chugchugchug) Now i'm sitting at my desk again.

      (down) What a rollercoaster of a day...

      (up) ...whee.

    • Finally...

      12 years ago

      nblabrant

      ...ordered my Sarge sweatshirt.

      I've wanted one for who knows how long. Now, the order has been placed. : )

      Frunts, call me when you get this... i'm in a bit of a hurry tonight. Scott's dad needs to picked up from the airport in Philly in a couple hours... and we just got back from Baltimore... and i'm going back to Baltimore again tomorrow... ugh. I'm going to need to take out a loan to pay all these effing tolls.

      Hope you all are well, and having a wonderful Christmas season.

      ...except Becky.

      I hope she's having a great Hanukkah.

      Wow.. I just read your favorite book section and had to re-read it because I thought you said that you were reading the book ADD and you could concentrate.. then i thought wouldn't they make the ADD book a book on tape so ADD people could just listen to it? cause lets face it how many people with ADD can sit long enough to read..
      Call me when you get a chance!

      Now make one last &final wish about that one wish that you picked.
      After reading this, you have 1 hour to send it out to 15 people, and what
      you wished for will come true within in one week!
      u only get one chance!!!!! Now scroll down and think of your
      crush!!!
      Keep going down
      Keep going
      Keep going
      !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Did you think of your crush? I hope so, that was
      your last chance. Now pay very close attention this important message!
      Sorry but once read, must be sent. Yes, this is one of those kinda chain
      letters that everyone hates. This one has been going since 1863 and if you
      break this chain, you will pay!!!!!! Remember that after hearing these
      stories.

      First Example:
      Take Barbra Wallace.. She was a pretty lucky girl,
      up till she got this same chain letter. She had a crush on the same kid
      since kindergarden. when she got this mail she didn't pay any attention to
      it. She just thought, no big deal. And deleted it. The next day her dad
      got fired and her mom dies in a car crash. If she would have sent the
      letter none of that would have happened and her mom would be alive.

      Second Example:
      Try Freddie D. Now Freddie D. was your average
      nerd. Had glasses, was short and chubby, was in gifted. All the signs of
      your total dork. He also received this letter and sent it to 51 people in
      the hour. Now, like Barbra, he had a crush on a girl since 3rd grade. The
      next day after sending the chain the girl confessed her love for him ever
      since 3rd grade. Freddie D. finally had the courage to ask her out, and of
      course, she had been waiting to yes to that for years. They grew up and
      married each other to live happily forever.

      Third Example:
      Now if you couldn't relate to the others, this'll
      get ya hooked. Listen to this. A kid named Jordan Johnson was just
      getting on AOL to check his mail. He was a quiet kid, not that popular but
      not a geek either. he was just normal. He saw he had mail from his
      friend. It was this exact letter. Now Jordan Johnsen was a smart kid and
      he knew what could happen if he didnt pass it on. He simply pulled a few
      friends from his buddy list and sent it along. The next day, about that
      same time, he got a phone call. It said he had won the lottery! then his
      dad came home and bought him a new bike! His mom bought him Nintendo64 and
      play station! His grandmother sent him a new computer, and his best friend
      gave him tickets to the concert he wanted to go to, Kid Rock and Limp
      Bizkit! Then he inherited a brand-new tv from his aunt! He was goin' wild!
      the next day his secret crush asked him out, and they have been going out
      ever since.

      Now, you heard the stories. I know which person i'd rather
      be, but thats up to you. I wouldn't wanna end up like Barbra but thats
      only me. We all want what we cant have but now's ur chance to go out with
      that special somebody ur waiting for. Take it or leave it. If you send
      this to-
      1 person- you will lose all luck in ur love
      life.....forever!!!!!
      10 people- your crush will say they like you as a
      friend......ONLY!!!!!
      15 people- your crush will say they like you
      20 people- your crush will ask you out!
      25 people- your crush will kiss you!!
      35 people or more- All of the above!!
      Don't blow it, it's ur chance to shine! Have
      everything u wanted, and more! Now, complaining cus u dont have any
      friends. Well theres an answer 4 everything. It's simple, just go in a
      chat room, pick some names and send away! but here's the catch.....you only
      have one hour to send it after being read. Please pass this to everyone u
      know and keep it going
