OK, for some reason I'm still awake, Tried going to bed about 30 minutes ago, but no, it didn't happen. No sleep for little Rico. So here I am.
I added a picture. Snow. It actually stuck a little bit today, so here you go. Notice the nice view from my dorm room window: the construction zone. Oh yeah. Best view in the world. That's the only thing I don't like about this dorm. Everything else is great.
Allrighty guys, here's my plane schedule:
Leave Pocatello: November 22, 9:46 AM

Home from November 22 (Saturday) to November 29 (Saturday).
Leave Ontario: 6:20 AM, November 29
Leave Salt Lake: 9:01 AM
Arrive at Pocatello: 11:55 AM
I saw S.W.A.T. today. Not so great in my opinion. Too much shooting and no plot. Eh. To each his own, I guess. OK, tired now. Bedtime.
It snowed here today. Didn't stick, but it snowed.
I watched The Others last night. Good movie. Similar to The Sixth Sense. And once again, Rico got what was going on about 1/4 of the way through the movie. But still a good movie. The people behind Katie and me kicked the chairs when they got scared. I thought the one girl was going to rupture something screaming as loud as she did. ROFL. I was laughing during the "scary" parts because of the stupid people behind us. I'm going to see The Exorcist tonight and Freddy vs. Jason tomorrow night. Freddy vs. Jason seems stupid, but we'll see.
I have to give a speech today. Ugh. I hate public speaking. With a passion. A fiery burning one. I was terrified when I had to speak at Honor Court and I would have $hit my shivvies had I had to speak at graduation.
I guess I'm growing my hair out. Katie and Alex (not Felix, but Alex, the girl from my dorm, one of my three best friends up here) want me to try it. Oh boy. They'll get to see the 'fro. Ugh. Oh well. Once it's grown out a little, I'll shave it back down.
Well, it's now official. My room is the party room. Once quiet hours came around last night, my RA told everyone that if they wanted to stay downstairs, then they had to go in my room. Jesus. Rico is being deprived of sleep. LOL.
Anyways, class time.
Well, these last few days have been weird. I've been hearing fire horror stories from Alex and everybody else, not to mention my relatives that had to evacuate as well. And just yesterday, a family friend's house did burn down. It's totally gone from what I hear. I hope everything turns out OK and damn soon.
I also finally talked to Greg. Wow. There's a shocker for ya. I guess I don't have any room to talk, since most people probably felt the same way when Jackie and I were hanging out. Whatever works out is best. I'm happy for him. And Alex, similar situation. I'm happy for you as well. 7 months is a long time. Congrats to both you guys!
I got a lot of sleep the other night. 11 hours. I went to bed at 8:30 PM. LOL. I just crashed watching football.
I still don't know what I'm going to do for Halloween. No costume (yet?), no parties (yet?), nada. Eh. Could go trick-or-treating in the hall. LOL. The little kids are going to freeze their asses off Halloween night, since it's supposed to snow here.
Not much else going on.
Happy Bunny has expanded its boundaries to Dog of Glee now. I bought two more static cling stickers for my truck. One is a dog that says "guess where I can lick" and the other is another dog that says "have a nice day butthole." Ah yes. Such sophistication.
Rico has a personal groomer. Another Katie (this is hard to believe, I know), we'll call this one Katie #3, plucks my eyebrows for me. She likes making people look better and helping them with their hair in almost any areas. As most of you know, Rico suffers from a nice little unibrow. Anyways, she keeps it in shape for me. Last night, she also shaved the back of my neck. She trims everyone's hair and plucks their unwanted hairs. LOL. I could get used to this. By the way, when I had the double Katie situation, everyone said I should have asked Katie #3 out too. She's pretty cute and nice, but damn, I had enough confusion as it was.
OK, I really need to write my goddamn speech now.
I'm kind of bored this weekend. Katie went to Boise to see her mom and I didn't really want to go. So here I am by myself. Most of the other guys in the hall went home too. Eh. Whatever. I saw Bad Boys II last night. Good movie.
Oh well. I caught up on sleep last night. 9 hours. Oh yeah. That is more than the last three nights combined. Yes!
I have to do my laundry. I hate doing laundry. I need a f*cking maid. My room is clean and vacuumed, but I hate doling laundry. I hate paying for it. Goddamnit.
Anyways, time to write my speech.
Well, Rico is a totally different person than he was in high school. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll think it's a good change. I have gotten 6 hours of sleep in the last two days. LOL. Last night was great. Started off with watching Bad Boys, then a Denny's run, and then some good clean fun. Two of the pharmacy guys and I went out at 2:00 AM. There's a fenced off area by our dorm that they're doing construction on right now. So we snuck in, walked through all the rubble (they are tearing down a building to build a bigger, better one), and then we entered the building. Good thing we had flashlights because it was actually a little scary. I hate rats. I'm not really scared by them and I don't scream, I just hate the little f*ckers. Anyways, the rats had found this building. We walked all the way through it and even upstairs. That probably wasn't too smart, considering they had begun to tear it down during the day yesterday. Half the building was missing. LOL. Finally got to sleep at 4:00 after strolling the campus for a little while. Good times, good times.
My friend stayed awake for 45 hours straight. Oh God, he was wired. Energy drinks, soda, and caffeine pills. Jesus Christ. I stayed up until 4:00 AM doing homework with him. Anyways, he finally crashed an hour ago. Bout time. He'll probably sleep for a day or so now.
I went on a Denny's run last night. I was a little wired myself, so I absolutely inhaled my food and finished before some people even really got started. If you've eaten with me when I'm hungry as a bitch wolf with 16 sucking pups, then you know what that's like (Felix knows what I'm talking about).
My apologies for the short, $hitty blog. Too tired to care right now.
It's true. I have enemies here. Katie also has enemies. And to no surprise, they are the same ones. Remember I mentioned a long time ago that I had the double Katie situation going on? Well, it seems that Katie #2 (the one I didn't choose) has it in for me. And just my luck, she has all the same classes as me. She's in the prepharmacy CLASS cluster. It's a program where 8 people have all the same classes as you so that you can form study groups. Kind of cool, except she's in mine. Damnit. All she does is give me the dick-eye. All day. Every class. Every meal. Every time I see her. And she hates my Katie with a fiery passion. I mean, there is some serious hatred coming from her. She refuses to even acknowledge the existence of my Katie. But! Of course there's a But! But when she needs help with a class, whether it be Speech, Chemistry, Biology, Math, or anything, who does she come to? Who does she expect to help her and be the god of knowledge? Me of course. And can I flat out say no? No. That would be the asshole thing to do. So what does Rico do? He helps the bitch. God help him (metaphorcially), he helps the bitch. But he doesn't really try very hard nor does he give a damn if she understands the material. Because he is treated like a pile of steaming cow shit. Anyways, enjoy my f*cking rant about the jealous bitch that lives upstairs.
Good news and bad news time.
We'll start with the bad. I have a chem test today. Not really bad for me, but I don't really enjoy tests. Also, I'm getting a flu shot today. Good thing that those are as bad as the news gets.
Now the good. I get to fly home for Thanksgiving. Instead of driving for 13 and a half hours each way, I get to fly. So it will be good to see the Crew again, that is, if the Crew still wants to see little ole Rico. More good news: Katie and I are still together. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, since we are just about the same person (she's just a liberal version of me). But hey, I can't believe someone this amazing actually wants to be with me. I'm used to getting shot down or kicked in the nuts (figuratively).
Anyways, I'll shut up now.
I sound like a broken record. Anyways, I added a few new pictures. My college. Yay! One is of the cemetery and some trees (all of these are taken from Red Hill, a bitch to walk up but has a view like none other). The next one is of the quad. I love this area of campus. It's so cool. And last but least, the pillars. Ah yes. These are weird, but I like them. They have some metaphor for the different classes, but it's kind of gay. I just like them. Anyways, they're on the top of Red Hill and can be seen for miles and miles (ah yes, another wonderful thing about Idaho- no smog at all). Enjoy.
Yesterday was a buttload of fun. First, we all went to the football game. The Homecoming game. Holy $hit, that was a great game. ISU won 43-40, double overtime. The game was tied for most of the time and when one team would score, the other team would match it. Anyways, after the victory, we (meaning me, Katie, and a couple others) had to get ready for the Homecoming dance. What was great was that one of the guys going didn't have dress shoes or a tie. So we had to go the mall so that he could buy them. Well, this was happening at 8:00 PM and the dance started at 9:00. Oh lordy. I got dressed and showered and prettied up in about 7 minutes flat. It was great. LOL. The dance was pretty fun. I got to show off my white-boy moves. Oh yeah. So that was pretty much it for the night.
I bought the Matrix Reloaded the other night. I love that movie.
I added a picture and removed a few of the others. Enjoy this one. Katie and I are all spiffied up.
Well, Rico is still awake. It is now 4:30 AM. Oh god. Anyways, I added a new picture. This is of Little Chris (as opposed to Big Chris, the guy in some fo the previous pictures). This guy is pretty funny. He'll sleep for a few days, then go a week without sleep. This is right after he woke up from a nice long nap. LOL.
Time for sleep.
OK, THIS POST WILL BE IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE RICO IS PISSED. PISSED BEYOND BELIEF. I GOT MY FIRST SPEEDING TICKET TODAY. ABOUT 30 MINUTES AGO. LESSON HERE IS TO NEVER GIVE IN TO PEER PRESSURE.
I WAS STUDYING BIOLOGY IN MY ROOM WITH KATIE WHEN MY GENIUS FRIEND BILL HAS THE IDEA OF GOING TO DENNY'S FOR THE SECOND STRAIGHT NIGHT. SO I GIVE IN. DAMNIT. WE GO. WE EAT. WE LEAVE. WE DRIVE. ACTUALLY, I DRIVE. I GET PULLED OVER. FUCK! FUCK! FUCK! I WAS GOING 13 MPH OVER THE SPEED LIMIT. GODDAMNIT! 48 IN A 35! $53. SHIT. TAHNK GOD THAT THERE IS NO LAW ABOUT HAVING PEOPLE IN THE BACK OF TRUCKS HERE OR I'D HAVE BEEN ROYALLY FUCKED. I HAD 3 PEOPLE IN THE BACK. SHIT. GODDAMNIT. MOTHERFUCKER. SORRY FOR THE CUSSING, BUT HELL, I AM PISSED.
ANYWAYS, ENJOY THE PICTURE OF MY FUCKING TICKET. I NEED TO DO HOMEWORK NOW. FUCK COPS. I HATE THEM. WITH A BURNING PASSION. MAY THEY ROT IN HELL FOR ETERNITY.
Oh lordy. What a night. It started with watching "The Good, the Bad, and Ugly." A great movie. We got Glo-Sticks at the theater for some reason. So when we got back from the movie, we played with them. Then we cut them open. Flung the contents everywhere in people's rooms, including mine and the lounge. I added a picture of Big Chris wearing some of the Glo-Sticks because it was just about the only picture that came out. Then the normal BS-ing of an out-of-class biology lab. Then the studying of biology. Then the writing of three papers. At this point, I believe it was 2:00 AM. I talked to my dear departed roommate for an hour, and then two guys and I went to Denny's at 3:00 AM. I finally got to sleep at 4:30 AM. I slept through my alarm and got up at 7:50 AM for my 8:00 AM Biology Lab. $hit. Anyways, I had to interview two teachers for my First Year Seminar class. Well, I had one done by this morning and they were due at 2:00 PM. So I had to interview my Biology lab instructor and type that crap up before class at 2:00 PM. What a hectic day. Oh by the way, I have been up past 2:00 AM for six days straight now.
Oh crap. I am tired as hell. Oh well. I'll be up late again tonight, studying for my bio test tomorrow. Ugh. How I abhor bio. With all my heart and soul.
OK, I added three more pictures to my blog. The first one is of Katie, Charyl (a girl in my hall, same floor as Katie), and Big Chris (there is another Chris on my floor, so this is Big Chris). Big Chris also has a single room, so I may have to room with him at semester. The second picture is of Alex, Katie, and Charyl. Alex is Katie's roommate and I believe Felix had the pleasure of "meeting" her. Anyways, the third picture is of Nuts. He's dead. But hey, his memory can live on forever. You can see his broken back right leg in the picture.
Rico has been studying his ass off for his bio test on Friday. Now he is burned out and talking in third person.
I'll be registering as a junior at semester, aso that kicks ass. Thank you AP credits!
LOL. Remember I said Katie was sleeping on my bed yesterday? Well..........she was also snoring and it was quite comical. So I took pictures of her conked out. I added pictures to the blog. That's right. Rico was able to do something for himself for once. Damn straight. Too bad all I had to do was copy and paste. Oh well. I still impressed the hell out of myself. Yay. And if you look closely, you can see my decorations on the wall behind Katie. My bunnies, my b-day cards, and my comics. In the other four pictures, you can see the two sides of my room and my posters of the vulgar bunnies. Anyways, enjoy the pictures.
Today was a cool day. I took four people to Lava Hot Springs in my truck. We went in the naturally heated pools. That was nice and relaxing. That also sucks the damn energy out of you, since the f*cking water was about 110 degrees. Anyways, we walked around the bustling town of Lava Hot Springs for an hour, ate in a little $hithole called Johnny's, and came home. We were all pretty tired after the hot pools, so everyone took a little nap. Everyone except me. Since Katie was sound asleep on my bed. Rico had to amuse himself for a while. Anyways, once everyone was up, we went to the gospel choir presentation in the student union building. For my BS class (my name for my First Year Seminar class), we have to attend "cultural events." So this is a cultural event. Bunch of damn black people shouting about Jesus. It was great. Anyways, one of my friends stood up and started "hallelujah-ing." ROFL. Anyways, Katie is really into singing, so she had a good time. I have to admit the singers were damn good, I just can't stand gospel music. Ugh.
So after the gospel thing, we all went to the bowling lanes in the student union building. They were packed. And we were determined to bowl. So we walked to the lanes in town. Packed also. Damnit. We ended up at Little Caesar's. Bought some cheap-ass pizzas and went back to the dorm to watch some tapes of Eddie Murphy when he still did stand-up comic stuff (from the '80s). It was f*cking hilarious. Anyways, everybody in my whole hall is asleep now. All except me. Yay. Needless to say, I will be asleep damn soon...
As teh Bard would say, why the f*ck am I still awake? As Andrew would say, "no seriously." Anyone have an answer? Because I sure as hell think that I'm totally nuts. Totally nuts about Katie, that is. Yes, she kept me up just to see if I could stay awake this long. And she actually just left to go to bed. So now I'm wide awake and bored. And strangely enough, this is not the latest that I've been up. I was up until 5:30 AM with her the one night/morning.
Condolences go out to the Bullwinkles. That sucks. But hey, drugs ruin your life and your loved one's lives. That's what happens. Best bet is not to get involved.
Well, $hit, I need to go to sleep. I have to get up at 9:00 AM tomorrow (actually, today). So yeah. I'm done rambling now.
Well, another day and another blog. Once again, Rico did not get much sleep. About another four hours. Ugh. I need more. I'm starting to get cranky. I played four-way Perfect Dark and San Francisco Rush 2049 until 3:00 AM. Needless to say, I took names and kicked some ass. LOL.
OK, I think I have a legitimate complaint right now. I love potatoes. I love them to death. And you'd think that in Idaho, I would be happy since there are a buttload of potatoes. But no! Oh NO! Idaho ships all the good potatoes out to the other states, leaving the instaters with $hitty taters. They give the good taters to out-of-staters. $hit. Oh, by the way, these cooks have no concept of Mexican food. There is no flavor. No spice. No kick. Nothing. Even the resturants here are bland. Oh well. Can't have it all, I guess. They do have good sandwich shops and the cafeteria makes some decent Italian food.
We had a windstorm today. If you think California has some bad ones, oooohhhhhh boy. I almost blew away. Not saying much, considering my weight, but still..... Anyways, it's supposed to rain tonight. We'll see. I hope it does.
Jesus Christ, Rico needs sleep. I got about 4 hours last night. People were in my room until really f*cking late burning CD's, since I guess I have the fastest burner in the hall. $hit. I finally kicked everyone out at about 2:30AM.
By the way, Biology sucks ass. I hate it. With a burning passion. I'm saying this because I have lab in about half an hour. Grrrrr........... I have to wake up early as hell for these gay labs. Oh well. I get to go bowling for my First Year Seminar class today. That's a toughie.
I guess I have become the drug-dealer of Nichols Hall. People come to me for Advil, aspirin, ibuprofen, Mylanta, and all sorts of crap. Of course, I have it all. $hit, one guy even wanted to buy Vicodin off of me. I don't think I'll be doing that though, since Vicodin is pretty good stuff.
Oh well. F*ck this. I need to get to class.
Once again, I am tired. I know I sound like a broken record. But it's true. I feel asleep in Chemistry today. When I woke up, there was a nice little puddle of drool on my notebook. Ah yes. That was sexy. I loved it.
Well, I talked to my ex-roommate on the hone the other night. I guess he's going to start college at UCR next semester. So for all you UCR'ers, look for Kevin McGinty. He's a half-Asian guy that's pretty big (height-wise).
Well, I have become the Calculus tutor for Nichols Hall. Everyone in my hall comes to me for help. They think I know every little thing about it. They also come to me for help with Chem, Bio, and for some f*cking reason, English as well.
My allergies are working overtime. $hit. Every morning, I wake up with a headache, sinus pressure, sore throat, and a nice cough. I love it. Not really, but whatevers.
I just got a haircut. Same as always. If you thought I might try out some new haircut in college, you thought wrong. There is no way in hell that I can do anything with my hair except shave it off.
Anyways, Rico needs sleep. Naptime.
Holy crap. I am tired today. I slept OK last night, but damn. Still didn't make up for the lack of sleep the whole weekend. I was sleeping soundly in my Chem class (which I am acing, so no tsk-tsking) when my friends woke me up, saying "we need help with this classwork problem." Holy f*ck. I did the whole goddamn problem while I was dead asleep. Crap. They couldn't do it while they were awake, but I could do it in my sleep. Literally.
I wish there was a way you guys could meet Katie. I will say this right now. Rico has not been happier. Ever. Period.
Ah well, not much else to say. Pretty busy between school and Katie now.
Oh crap. I have not been able to blog recently. I have been so goddamn busy that I have not had a free minute. Anyways, I just got back from my trip to Boise with Katie.
We left Friday afternoon. It takes about 4 hours to get there, so we pulled into her house at 5:00 PM. Ate dinner with her mom, who, by the way, is an awesome cook. Then we went to find some of her friends. We found a few and went to the one guy's house. Kicked it there until 2:30 AM. Went back to her house. I offered and expected to sleep in the back of my truck (since their house is not large at all), but NO. I was allowed to sleep next door to Katie, on a nice inflatable mattress that her mom had already inflated for me and put sheets on. Yay! Anyways, slept until 9:00 AM. Did some chores, then went to find Tom. Oh my. Tom is a psycho. This guy is possessive of Katie and tells her all the time that he loves her. Naturally, that's a little weird for her. Especially when he talks of marriage. It scares the hell out of her. I mean, don't get me wrong. He's a cool guy and I liked being around him. But f*ck! He was jealous the whole time I was around him (since I'm with Katie and he hasn't even kissed her). Anyways, we kicked it at the same guy's house again Saturday night. We came home earlier today. The trip was a blast, mainly just because I got to be with Katie.
I will update this blog more often from now on. I promise. Seriously. I've just been ridiculously busy. Tired now too. I only got about 6 or 7 hours of sleep this weekend (only a couple this last night/morning). So I'm barely functioning right now. Just enough to type. Anywho, I'll try to update more and get some more pics on here.
