Ben's almost back!

Now that the most recent extravaganza is over, we need to start looking to the next. Ben's coming back this Friday. Who is up for celebrating somehow on the 4th? I don't know what we could do, but it seems pretty logical that we'd see fireworks in there. What say you all? Drinking would be fun, of course, but I think fireworks and dinner and something else?

Dragon Fire Parade

It was like seeing Explosions in the Sky perform at one of its first shows. (In other words, it was undoubtedly awesome.)

New Kids on the Block

My bad... Sara's right. It's Mark Wahlberg I was talking about. Why is he bothering with this whole reunion tour? I mean, doesn't he have enough money as a famous actor? It's so surreal.

My Web site

So, I thought you'd all like to know (if you don't already know) that my blog has been bulked up and renamed. You can still link to it at blogspot by using the address, but its preferred URL is now, and it will be my primary personal blog/Web site. The one on LuLu still will be used solely for marketing (book previews, book sales, vital author information, etc.), but the Livejournal one seldom will be used since is going to be the center of my Internet universe. Of course, I'll still post to Smith Ground; I just wanted to let you know about the other blog.

Ours concert update

Tim has been trying to get tickets a couple times and the place is just hardly ever open and they never answer their phone. I actually am possibly going to be there Sunday night just by coincidence, the night before the concert. If I am, I will see if I can get tickets there for us and then I'll let you know either way on Monday ASAP about whether or not I got them. This is all depends on if Tim gets them first.

This video is not in any way, shape, or form, doctored

The youtube video attached to this post is completely real, and in no way a farce, falsity, facade, or any other "fa" word, other than maybe "fact".

This one is also completely true.

... but in all seriousness, apparently these were, and yes this is partly how I know about this, JR East (Japan Railway) commercials to promote travel via rail to northern japan for ski trips.

I know it makes ME want to go skiing.

I should really write more poetry...

I've been cleaning out my room lately and reorganizing stuff, and came across a stack of notebooks from college. That's right, I never throw anything away, you never know when you'll need those old chemistry notes. Anyway, reading through my notebooks made me discover two very important things. First, I'm so happy I never have to write a research paper again. Second, I apparently love smith bling a lot, because I came across a rather erotic poem I once wrote and had published in the columns:

Oh smith bling, your blinging makes me crazy,
You bling with so much bling I wanna have 10,000 of your babies.
To the hallway toll I'll give all of my coins,
If only you'll let me rub your loins.
Late at night when I hear your screams,
I wanna do you, you're in all of my dreams.
My knees go weak when you play that song,
Checkin' out your gravel pit makes me wanna take off my thong.
My heart beats faster than the wings of a dove,
Nevermind the old crow, I wanna get drunk on your love.
Playing halo makes me break into a sweat,
And when you taze each other I can't help but get wet.
Your massive package is a work of art,
Forget fire hazards, someone put out this burning in my heart.
I love you even though you did my mom,
'Cause I saw it on
I love every little thing you do,
Oh smith bling, I wanna make sweet love to you.

There's also another stanza with a big X through it that didn't make it into the final draft:

When I think about you late at night it's hard to control my hand,
You make me wanna creep downstairs and jump on your raging cockstand.

I'm not sure why I decided to cut that one.
