As a member of this Xanga online blog community, why am I expected to
always keep people posted on the comings and goings of my life? 
If you want a breakdown, here you go.

Over break I really had nothing to do.  I sat around most of the
time playing games and occasionally going to hang out with
friends.  Towards the latter part of the vacation I was invited to
help work on a new MMORPG as a project the Briarcliffe College Tech
Club was working on.  That was going along quite well last I
checked.  The last few days of the break, Keith, Tim, and myself
went to Washington D.C. to go and see/hear the Presidential
Inauguration of President Bush.  That was fun, albeit a little
cold.  Friday night, the night before I went back I went out with
Kitchell & Co. now featuring Marissa to Chili’s.  The company
was amazing, the food was great, and it was definitely one of the
better nights I have ever had. 
    I got back to Binghamton a few days ago.  I
haven’t really done too much here besides just chill out for the
weekend.  Today is the second day of classes and I almost missed
my 8:30 class
    As an aside, Tina has been here a lot getting to
know the dawgs on this floor.  I’ve also been trying to teach her
how to play Halo 2.  She still sucks, but she has been making
marked progress.  
    Right now, I am eating a bowl of Golden Grahams that I got from Mo, thanks Mo.

Hey all…


I, umm, kinda graduated from high school and go to college now.  Woohoo.  Go Binghamton University.  But, here I am, sitting at home with not a goddamned thing to do Thanksgiving night.  I want to be back in me dorm with all of my warm electronics.  Home is so boring because my parents won’t let me out.  They think that I should be home with the family over holidays.  Meh…


 


God, I need something to do.


Wow, I just read that entry over and it is the saddest piece of shit I have ever seen in my life.  Alas and alack, I have nothing good to say as I never really write in this thing like a journal.  I use it more or less for strange things I want to talk about… like macaroni and cheese.  In retrospect, let me say one thing…WOOO Bush in ’04!

Ok, so I was making some good ol’ macaroni and cheese  (comfort food for the soul and all that jazz) and I realized something.  Now, I have not really seen a lot of people making Mac & Cheese, but amongst my friends I have noticed a peculiar pattern.  When you make Mac and Cheese, do you keep the box for the cooking instructions?  Or how about when you have two or more boxes, do you keep one for reference purposes?  I, myself, partake in this habit, but it is quite puzzling. 


Ask yourself this question, how many times have I made Macaroni and cheese in my lifetime?  A lot, right?  Well, if I’ve made it so many times I don’t really need the instructions.  Bring water to boil.  Throw in macaroni.  Boil for 8-10 minutes.  Drain macaroni and place back in pot.  Add a quarter cup of butter (half a stick) and a quarter cup of milk.  Mix in cheese mix.  Voila!  I’m done.  So, why the hell does everyone still keep the boxes for reference?  Though I was a bit daring.  I didn’t look at the box when thinking about the ingredients needed.


Ponder that for a while and let me know if you keep that box for comfort’s sake.

Ok, this deserves a WTF?  In the past two hours, not only has the temperature not dropped, it actually went up a bit to 85° F.


To continue what I was saying before, the newest dieting fads have begun and are consuming the nation, as millions of overweight Americans attempt to rid themselves of their saddlebags.  This whole lifestyle trend is quite alarming because it is just another way for Americans to get what they want fast and with very little effort.  The American population has become stuck in a rut of gluttony, one of the seven deadly sins.  Overstimulation, lack of exercise, and the fast and cheap way out are the sure signs of cultural depravity.  Ahh, laziness and procrastination, my true calling as an American.  But, at least I finished this post for y’all.  Hope you liked it, I know I enjoyed writing it.  Feel free to comment below.


PS  That “party” was really just a gathering of friends to make a graduation gift for a good teacher that we know, Mr. Schleith.  Didn’t turn out too well, but plans are in the works to make it better by tomorrow.  After Matera, Berk and I were done doing prop falls on Gordon’s nice, soft, green lawn and after I took out part of Berk’s toenail, we kinda sat around signed some yearbooks and threw some balls around while we rested in lounge chairs.  Real fun.

Goddamn it is hot.  Yes, that is right, it is currently a chilly 84° F right about now.  Now, if that isn’t sweater weather, then I just don’t know what’s what!


Nothing been going on much lately.  Well, there is the fact that a great leader of our Nation has passed away this past weekend.  Ronald Reagan was a good man, a good president, and a great American.  I hope all of you reading this take some time out of your day to reflect and contemplate on the loss of such a great man.  In that vein of interest, make sure you remember that this Friday, June 11nd(hehe),  is New York’s Statewide day of prayer and remembrance in honor of President Reagan.


On to other topics of non-interest.  School has been nothing but a big sucking sound…WOOOOOOSHHHHH  That is the sound of my life being wasted as I go to these pointless classes.  The only thing of interest was the game of Risk in Physics class and the bottle rockets we made thereafter.  Everything else?  Movies and boring presentations for SS.  At least I am becoming something of a cinematic expert!  Did you know that an average American teenager has seen more movies in his/her limited lifespan than a cinemaphile had around 20 years ago?  How screwed up is that?  That means one thing.  We need to get our asses off of our lazy boys and couches and do something more interesting with our lives.  Apparently, Americans are just entertaining themselves from outside sources too much.


Starting a new paragraph, cuz I have a feeling this topic could get quite lengthy.  While I realize that every time period in history has always had a “better time” before it and that this is probably exactly what I am saying, the America of today is becoming alarmingly comatose in its decisions to be active.  Ever see those commercials on T.V. at night with the “Verb” thing?  You know, run, walk, jump, skate, paint, do.  That is the campaign, albeit small, that some companies and government agencies are running.  They have realized the danger We as Americans are becoming exposed to.  Increased periods of slothlike behavior, lack of motivation to do anything, and the constant need to entertain ourselves with something other than ourselves and friends, i.e. movies, T.V., food, and music, are the trends that will send America spiralling into despair and decedance.  As compared to the times of yore, when the kids of America would go outside and play sports, run around like little banshees, or travel to other places for entertainment, the times of now are a doomed-slide into hell.


Did you happen to notice that whole Atkins craze that is sweeping the nation?  Yep, I was one of those crazed fools, though I started just before the whole momentum of the movement started and had to trudge through the grocery aisles looking for something to sate my cravings.  Well, this whole wave of dieting is a backlash to the sedentary lifestyle that many Americans are leading.  Yet, it is kind of ironic.  If you look at it, Americans are dieting in a hurry to shed those pounds, but they really aren’t being active.  You see, the whole silver lining to this starve-yourself-of-all-carbohydrates thing is that you don’t have to do any physical activity whatsoever!  Hell, I rode that gravy train all the way.  I kind of fell by the way side in my dieting craze and have gained back some weight, but it isn’t too much and I am quite happy how I am.  Besides, now I am getting better at my intellectual abilities.  Oh, maybe you didn’t realize?  Eating no carbohydrates will kill brain cells.  That, or at least atrophy them.  Happened to me, though I refused to admit it when I was shedding the weight.  I became very dull-witted, slow, and very forgetful.  I will be the first to admit, I wasn’t too sharp on the memory thing before Atkins, but it hadn’t been that bad.  So, if you really want to lose some of that weight extra-fast, go on Atkins, but be prepared to lose some of those intellectual capabilities.


Here I go, full circle:  The Atkins way, along with the Zone diet, the South Beach diet….WOOPS Friend just came by with an invite to a party so I bid you adieu.  Will be back to finish what the hell I was saying.

So, there I was trying to understand PearPC (a program that allows Mac emulation) and my friend says he enjoyed some of my ‘blog here, but was sad that he didn’t get a mention.  Well, here’s your mention, Greg Kozlowski.  Like it and live it up to the fullest.  This is probably the only personalized post you will get from me.

In other unrelated news, I have gotten a new job nowadays.  I am working at Jones Beach this summer as your friendly ice cream dude at Field Six.  Mmm, free ice cream and soda all summer long .  It’s a pretty interesting job.  Shouldn’t be as stressful as it was at KK.


I have also secured a date to the prom, unlike our common friend JB.  But, it is not to our, a.k.a. JFK’s prom.  Oh no, it is to MacArthur’s prom.  I am going to hers .  Should be a really fun time.  And its less than two weeks away.  Well, I am just sitting here waiting for a friend to call. 


TTFN

I have done it!  I realize now why I have slowly lost all intellectual abilities over the past year and a half.  No, I wasn’t doing any drugs.  You see, ever since about first grade I have been reading constantly.  Every night before I went to bed, I would read about 30 pages in a book.  But, King Kullen changed all that.  When I started working there, I would get so tired that when I came home I would just fall asleep.  No reading time anymore.  So, now that it has become a habit of not reading before sleep, I am no longer exercising my brain just before unconsciousness.  This in turn has led to the atrophication of the organ that is my mind.  The symptoms I have been experiencing are many.  To begin, I have lost most of my ability to converse with the outside world.  I have these “brain farts” that make me repeat what I just said half a second ago again.  I also seem to have had trouble forming words that I used to be able to say with ease.  Plus, school grades have dropped as well.  That goes double for Physics.


As you can see, life has not been progressing well in the mental department for me.  Jaibe and I were discussing it after school yesterday that the brain is just like any muscle, without constant use it will begin to deteriorate.  So, I picked up a book earlier and I plan on reading it before going to sleep. 


And that was today’s epiphany folks.  Make sure you use your brain as well!

If you were looking for your dose of wierd, you have definitely come to the right place.  Well, I think you came to the right place.  That isn’t quite a definite thing, per se.  See, I can, on occasion, do something wierd or write about something wierd and I most certainly will try to for this update, since I haven’t posted in a hell of a long time, but this is not a thing set in stone.  No, no, no, no.  It’s more like it is set in a Jell-O.


Hmm, let me see…Last time I updated was in March, eh?  That doesn’t sound good at all.  I have been a bad blogger.  Please, oh great deities who rule over the cattle of this web logging internet domain, punish me!  I am prostrate before you.  I humble myself at your knowledge and wisdom.   What ever shall I do?


Ok, here is how it’s gonna go.  From now on, I will try to regale you with the most incredibly boring shit you have ever heard this side of Flan.  I will, of course, try and add an interesting spin to it, though.  Like these paragraphs I just wrote, were they, in any way, more than just words?  Did they have a twisted core to them that perhaps made their useless purpose entertaining?  I certainly hope so. 


So, allow me to talk about yesterday.  Twas a good day in my opinion.  As most of you probably know, I am a DeMolay, which puts me on the chart of coolness at a factor of 10^-34.  Anyways, yesterday I had to pay a visit to my chapter advisor so we could go over my application for Representative DeMolay.  It is basically an award/honor that states you are a good little DeMolay boy.  Well, I have to get it because I plan to run for a State Office in August for the NY DeMolay sub-division of the organization. 


So, there I was…woke up at 6:30 in the fucking morning so I could get myself ready for the meeting.  Mind you, by get ready I don’t mean primp myself and make it so I smelled like a god, no.  I simply had to bust some mind juice to memorize a 4 page ritual part that has to be squeezed into my carb-free, thus memory frazzled, mind.  There I was, walking around outside my house, looking for all this world like some teenager who had finally snapped, talking to himself and gesticulating everywhere.  Well, what would you think?  I, personally, don’t care but feel free to respond in the comments section.  Basically, I managed to beat the words into my mind after 3 hours of pacing around.  It was time.  I had to depart for the meeting.  I hopped on to my trusty Thumper© (click here if you wanna know) and sped to his house.


As an aside, yesterday was a very pleasant day.  I practically rode my bike the whole time .


Meeting went alright.  Some things here or there that needed to be changed, nothing big.  So, I hung around the Kitchell house until Chris came home from the SATs.  Wow, I remember those.  Seemed like so long ago, probably because it was close to a year ago.  Anyone enjoy pulling teeth?  Then, please feel free to take the SATs whenever you want to enjoy that mind raping pain.  When Chris got his ass back to his house, I kinda hung around for most of the day.  He invited some friends over, who I didn’t know, but they seemed decent.  While Chris got up, I stole his computer chair and started tweaking his computer.  I basically started Mac™icizing his desktop until it took on the appearance of a Mac OS X 10.3 Panther edition.  Then, I got him a cool program that made his desktop look kinda darkish and all sunlike.  Check out Style XP if you wanna try it out. (Do a search on google or type it out in your address bar, you lazy bastard)  I believe I have started a craze of changing the look of a person’s desktop experience!  Woot woot!  Here is an image of my desktop for all who are wondering, by the way:



Hope you clicked the image for a bigger version


So, I left Chris and my Chapter Advisor’s house around quarter to 6’ish.  They were having steak and I wasn’t invited   Nah, just kidding, I had better plans.  That’s RIGHT.  There was a White Castle Crave Case Challenge in my future.  Best way to end off a day I’d think.  At around 7:15, Keithus picked me up in Helmut Aximus and we were off to pick up Scrummy.  From there, we just drove north and east and got ourselves lost as hell.  But, fear not dear (1?) reader(s), we eventually made it there.  The Crave case was picked up and we headed back to Keithus’ house where the challenge commenced.  I left the table with 1st place, having packed away 12 burgers because Keithus couldn’t get past his 7th.  Pshhh, lightweights.  Tim made an admirable showing with 11 burgers to round out the night with 2nd place.  After a few rounds of Texas Hold ‘Em, which I won twice, I believe   (By the way, does anyone know if Three pairs beats three of a kind?) we finished out the night with a round of Slayer on Blood Gulch in Halo.  I was really wiped out by that point so I made a poor showing.


Alas, that was my fun Saturday.  Actually, in retrospect, that was probably the best Saturday I have had in a long time.  Also in retrospect, this was a LONG ass post. Hope you enojoyed it and clicked the various links scattered throughout.  Will update either tonight when this pitiful Sunday peters out or tomorrow afternoon.  Peace!

I really meant to update this thing yesterday but time got away from me…as such as it has done this day.


I will post when I get the time on the recent doings of my life…which I am sure you are interested in…not.


Here’s some juicy links for ya tho.
