LEMUR!!!1!!

scammery

forgot to mention this.. that free godsmack ticket (whcih i ended up giving to scott, so at least someone got to use it. assuming they managed to get to the show saturday, i havent talked to them yet. hopefully they made it or i think michelle will shoot herself) that i got by registering to vote.. now, 101 had fielded a few questions of people asking what if they already did register? and the answer was basically "o well, nuts to you". so anyway, i also too as well was already registered to vote in manch, but it was absentee style from durham so i wasnt sure if i could re-register here or not. but anyway, at the registration place when the lady asked if i was registered anywhere else, i said durham. i guess the computer didnt say otherwise cuz she gave me a reigstration card and which i forthwith went and got my ticket with. and she also, at my request, gave me a form to get absentee ballots, so i probly was already manch-registered, and cheated the system. yay for dan.
there was something else i wanted to say but i forget now. lj has been extremely mucked up the past few days, grr to them. hopefully i'll remember to copy this post somewhere safe before i try sending it, in case it's eaten by monsters.
tomorrow is my last day off work before saturday, when i'm sposed to go do fencing things at some time or another. and then sunday is move-back-to-school day. meaning tomorrow is pretty much my last chance to get everything done that i need to do before going back. so i assume i'll spend the whole day online :-/
rock101 really plays the same 10 songs over and over and over, i think. it's the only station that comes in at work, so i listen to it most days (i've decided not to bring cds in anymore as the stereo is crap and messed up my deftones cd. usign the magic cleaning stuff worked, but still.. i dont want it to eat my cds) and dammit they need to play more things! the same damn pink floyd, metallica, zep, godsmack, etc every day. at least they have loveline, that's always good entertainment =) damn there's some weird people out there

a question

how do you list remixes on your playlist? should it be filed under the remixer's name or the original band's name? i can't decide

(see the music of my previous post for illustration)

would anyone like 22 old issues of weekly world news? it seems a shame to throw them all away...
i also have 2 issues of the sun, if that helps.

you're paying shipping, cheap bastard.

oh, and tons of books. but i'm too lazy to list them all, so anyone want tons of random books? or some old shirts? or pieces of plastic i kept for 5 years for no discernable reason? how do you feel about scraps of paper?

BIG SALE TODAY! EVERYTHING MUST GO!

a discovery

so i found this story i wrote in 1993. that would put me in.. 5th grade. so anyway, i present you with....

Dejá Vu

I was walking down a dimly lit hallway. I slowly turned the knob on the door ahead. As I entered the room brilliant lights blinded me. I heard a scream. I turned. Standing in the doorway was a man. He was holding a sword. He charged, the sword poised to attack. Then I woke up.
I was scared. I couldn't remember the dream but I was scared anyway. I decided to go downstairs and watch t.v. for a while.
I was watching a movie called "The Dungeon." It was about a prince trapped in the dungeon of an evil king. Right now, the prince was looking for the level that would make the drawbridge go down. The prince was walking down a dimly lit hallway. He slowly turned the knob on the door ahead. As he entered the room brilliant lights blinded him. He heard a scream. He turned. Standing in the doorway was the evil king. He was holding a sword. He charged, the sword poised to attack. Suddenly, as the prince's body slumped to the floor and his head rolled away, I screamed. I screamed because I remembered. I remembered the dream!
I decided to take a walk to clear my head. I went around the neighborhood a few times then went back home. I went in and started up the stairs. Then I got to the top. I was walking down a dimly lit hallway towards my room. I slowly turned the knob on the door ahead. As I entered my room brilliant lights blinded me. I heard my mom scream. I turned. Standing in the doorway was my dad. He was holding a sword. He charged, the sword poised to attack. Suddenly, as my body slumped to the floor and my head rolled away, someone screamed...

and thus ends that epic tale. yay! it's a shame you all can't see the illustrations too. i've really never been able to figure out how to properly draw people. their faces always look like lizards or chipmunks or something

furthermore

i need to go look thru all my old junk from elementary school sometime. i especially want to find my story about how the president was killed by an arcade game, that was pretty cool. i remember reading it to my class after i wrote it (we got to do that) and alot of them didnt get the end. i don't think they understood how an ellipsis worked (and i didnt know how to end a story without one. i guess just sayign what happened wouldve been too easy).
oh, adn speaking of old stories and junk, it turns out my hunch was right (if i ever mentioned this in here, it was awhile ago. i'm talking to myself now) - perkins has "crystal city"! that abstrad, i need to get it back from him. renny'd been asking about that for awhile
