Long time no see

Well, I’ve had no internet for something like the past week. Several people noticed that I wasn’t online, and a couple of them called. I didn’t fall off the face of the earth, just off of the internet. The dullards that host our internet here finally fixed it today, after much gnashing of teeth. I considered posting stuff separately, but I think that I’ll just make one post that spans the entire time.

I dunno about you guys in Texas and what help you have seen going towards LA. I thought that seeing convoys of cherry pickers going towards the aftermath of a hurricane or two that we or surrouding states has had so far was surreal, but seeing a convoy of moving equipment that I can only guess was going towards LA sort of blew my mind. Then later I saw the remnants of a military convoy as well. It was definitely a surreal thing in my mind. I don’t have cable I’ve been a little out of the loop in all of this, so I don’t see it on the news 24/7. Probably good and bad.

Gas prices aren’t too bad. I’ve paid like 2.89 or 2.84. Governor axed taxes on gas for the month, so it should be ~15 cents cheaper.

Unfortunately, that may be it. Since I didn’t have internet I was a little more bored than usual, but not too bad. I did a little reading, but mostly watched what I’ve got downloaded. Chad had me get a TV show called Arrested Development. Watched about 6 episodes of the first season and think that it’s pretty good. Definitely watch some more. Also watched Full Metal Jacket, which is why I answered the phone the way that I did when you called me, Ben. And btw, Mindy this is Ben, Ben this is Mindy. I don’t know if you guys have met or not, but he’s an 06er.

Anyhoo, enough for now.

    hiya, mindy. nice to meetcha.

    thomas, i just finished season 2 of A.D. and i like it. i’m ready to hit up the new season when it starts. its just really funny/goofy kinda like scrubs i guess. but now that i’ve finished it, i need a new season of something to be interested in. actually, i have pretty much zero time to do that… nevermind, that’s not what i need to concentrate on. but i would like to keep up with the newest seasons of my fav shows. any idea when any of them are starting? i could look it up i guess. well hang on…what shows do i even want to follow this season? lets see… scrubs, arrested developement, lost (for sure), umm… family guy i guess (not really a priority). am i leaving anything else i need to keep up with out? oh, and if you haven’t watched lost, that’s one that’ll get ya hooked. just watch the first episode and tell me what you think.

    its late and i need to go to bed. you can tell that’s true by my semi-coherent train of consciousness that i seem to be typing. okay, i’m going to bed now. well, not right now. i’ve gotta get undressed and brush my teeth. no, not totally undressed…boxers, silly. and now my teeth are brushed too. i’m gonna click say it and go to bed now. haha, i’m really taking this stream of consciousness thing to the extreme, aren’t i? ok — goodnight
