OK, this is going to be an adventure. I am so goddamn tired I don't know if I can even type coherently. We'll see.

I got up early today to play golf with my dad. OH GOD, I SUCK AT GOLF!!! I really do. I can't do anything right out there. I played Quail Ranch, which is a bitch of a course anyways. But when you suck, it's really no fun at all. Oh well. I guess I truly am a Sunday hacker. Yay. But will I quit golf? Hell no. I'll keep going out there for punishment, every chance I get. But now since my ass was so thoroughly kicked by the course and I had to get up early, I am tired. So very, very tired.

So my New Year's Eve will probably consist of me dozing off in a chair in front of my TV at about 9 or 10. Sweet.

I guess most people are going back to school on the 5th (well, you go back before then, but that's the first day of class, no?). Anyhow, time is running out. So sad. I won't be seeing you guys for a long time after that. Spring break.

I need to go take a nap or lay down or something of the such...

Whatever the point of this quiz was, I guess I'll never know. But Zoolander was a damn funny movie.....
hmmm...your a foreign kid who wants to work....

Which happy member of Zoolander are you?? (haha my pictures move!!!)
brought to you by Quizilla

Cool. I like Captain Jack.
Jake Sparrow
You are Jack Sparrow. Most think that you are a
stupid pirate, when really you are intelligent.
You are funny and to most untrustworthy and a
little on the crazy side but you still look
good doing what you are doing. All you want in
life is to take back what was once yours in
full ownership (hint) Anyway please vote for my
quiz even if you didn't like it.

Which Pirate of the Caribbean's person are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

Obviously, I got bored today. Alex and Greg did come over and we got to act like little kids and play some video games. I exposed Greg to the greatness of the South Park movie. Ah yes.

Hope everybody had a good Christmas and has a good New Years.

I've listened to my new Nickelback CD (well, actually the CD is old, but new to me). Not quite as good as The long Road, but still decent. Yes, it's true. Rico's musical tastes are broadening.

Monday, December 29, 2003
OK, I have come to think that my new neighbor/neighbors is/are drug dealers. There are so many different cars that park there and the people are so weird and messed-up looking that they have to be drug dealers/users. Holy $hit. I've seen eight different cars since I've been home. And the main guy that lives there is on his phone 24/7. And why would a single guy (supposedly single, but who knows?) want a 3 bedroom house that costs $1700 a month to rent? A little suspicious to me. Oh well, screw it. I don't really care as long as none of that crap comes my way.

I got two movies and a CD today with a gift certificate. Pirates of the Caribbean, Signs, and Nickelback's previously unreleased album called Curb. Havne't had a chance to listen to the CD, but I know the movies are good. Eh, I guess I'm running low on things to write about.

What's up with all the rain we're getting? I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I love rain. I like listening to it pulse and drum away and lull me to sleep. I love standing out in the rain next to a gently flowing river with the person I love. I like listening to it patter and beat on the roof and watching it trickle down the windows to some destination, but damn, we're sure getting a lot and it looks like we're in for more. Not a complaint, just an observation.

Looks like I'm playing golf on Wednesday at Quail Ranch. Ought to be a windy mo-fo. I'll probably suck like I have the last couple times. Oh well.

Today was a buttload of fun. First was tubing with Alex, Jen, and Steve. Yay. At least there was snow. We were worried for a little while when we saw none for stretches. And we got to see where the fire hit the mountains. Sad. Forests wiped out, houses gone, cars burnt to the metal frames. But tubing was fun, so let's not get all emotional here.

Then I drove home and got there about 4:35. $hit. I was supposed to be ready to go eat at 4:50. Well, I managed to shower and shave and actually put gel in my hair in about 12 minutes flat. Yay. Dinner with Jackie was fun, reminiscing of yonder olden days and such. Mmmmm. Chinese food. Yummy.

OK, now I'm pretty much beat. Trudging up that hill with that damn tube did me in, I guess.

Well, here's something else to blog about. We have new neighbors here. They have two big dogs that eat and $hit (basically the life of a dog anyhow). But the owners never clean up the $hit, so the backyard reeks. And the wind always blows that into our yard. Goddamnit. And they smoke pot in the backyard. When I came home today after dinner, two guys were in the bushes outside their door with flashlights. What they were looking at or for, I can only imagine. Weirdos. Kind of scary.

I guess I'm going to go watch some TV and probably doze off.

Saturday, December 27, 2003
I played golf today with Alex, his dad, and my dad at Calimesa. Looks like the rainstorm we had tore the course a new one. And now I suck at golf. I have come to the conclusion that I am now an average Sunday hacker. Goddamnit. Oh well. Nothign I can really do about that now.

I might be doing something pretty fun tomorrow, we'll see how that turns out. Hopefully, we can go (no weather probs or other bad crap).

Anybody have any ideas for fun, cheap things to do around Redlands and the Inland Empire? Katie will be in town from the 4th to the 11th (yay!) and I'd like to have some fun things to do. I have a few days set up (like spending the night in the campground at the beach), but I would like to hear some ideas. Anything at all. Just leave them in the comments section. Thanks!

Random subject of the day: I don't know if anybody noticed, but the sunsets here have been pretty kick ass lately. Sky looks like it has a few different layers, like something in a painting. Dark blue, blue, light blue, yellow, orange, red, then the trees and houses (which appear black). Kind of a weird thing for a guy to point out, I suppose. Anyways, yeah. I guess maybe the smog and such help the red color. Oh well.

Not much more I can babble about right now. Maybe more will come to mind tomorrow. Maybe. Maybe not also, but we'll see.

Sorry for not blogging for a few days. Been busy. Lame excuse, I know.

Greg, Alex, and I got together Tuesday. Had some fun. Haha. Good times, good times.

We had Christmas at my house on Wednesday. Had food catered. That was a first for us. And it was damn good. BBQ chicken, beans, potato salad, etc. Yummy. We did the gift exchange deal, which was fun, until I got screwed. I got a good gift stolen from me and I cleverly chose to unwrap a new one. F*CK! It was a S'More Maker. Whoop-de-f*cking-do! What a worthless POS. Anyways, I guess I'm going to take it back and get something worthwhile. My cousin still got me some presents. A talking Homer Simpson beer opener, Homer Simpsons houseshoes (yes, they're houseshoes), and my other cousins got me a gift certificate to Circuit City. Oh yeah, and my uncle got me a spring wetsuit. In case you're wondering what that is, it's a wetsuit that is short-legged and short-sleeved. My old one was falling apart, so that was a pretty cool gift. I was pretty happy with that one. And like I said before, I got a new bodyboard. So all was not lost. It turned out OK, but I still can't believe I got shafted and got a S'More Maker. Oh well. Enough bitching, it was the thought that counted, I guess.

Well, not much else going on. I watched Seabiscuit again yesterday. I bought it for Mommy and Daddy, along with Road to Perdition (not to mention a DVD player, the movies would be rather useless without one). Ah yes, Seabiscuit. Good movie. If you haven't seen it and don't think that you like horseracing, tough $hit. Watch it.

I went to the movies with my cousins and aunt and uncle yesterday at Ontario Mills. Bad choice of theater. Traffic like you wouldn't believe. Anyways, we saw Mystic River. OK movie, not great. Long. Then had steak and potatoes at my aunt's house as a goodbye dinner to my cousin's boyfriend (he's going home to New York for a few days).

Anyways, I think I should probably do something productive now. Enough screwing around.


Monday, December 22, 2003
I went to see tha Last Samurai last night with Greg. Damn good movie. Very gory and bloody, but good nonetheless.

Tired from getting up at 5 yesterday. Think I'll go take a little nap after this post.

I already miss the Idaho "traffic." "Traffic" being the rush "minutes" and a couple cars on the freeway. Damn, the traffic here sucks ass. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like it gets worse every day and no matter where and when you go someplace, the roads are packed. What the hell is going on? Oh well, at least I don't have to drive anywhere for Christmas. Bout damn time I have Christmas at my house.

Sunday, December 21, 2003
I woke up at 5:00 AM this morning and played golf with my daddy. I got destroyed by the greens at PGA. I bombed the driver and hit the irons well, but sucked ass on the greens with the flatstick. $hit. Oh well, not too bad considering I've played three times since September. Haha.

Maybe my musical tastes are broadening. Notice I didn't say changing. Oh no, I still love the oldies and some country. I still like my selected movie soundtracks. But hey, I found out that I like Nickelback. I'll be damned. I have their new CD and I like it, thanks to Katie.

Can't post more for I have more crap to do today. Guess I didn't finish the f*cking chores yesterday. I'll be damned.

Saturday, December 20, 2003
Ouch, ouch, OUCH! My ass hurts like hell from that drive home. 13 hours of torture. LOL. Nobody to keep me company except my brain. Oh great, 13 hours alone with my brain. Anyways, the trip wasn't too bad, except for the length. I got home earlier than I expected, thanks to an easy speech final and me hauling ass. Unfortunately, I had to stop twice in Mormonland for gas and food and such. Ahhhhh! I hate that state. But hey, it's all over now (for a few weeks anyhow) and I'm back in Redlands.

Yay! My truck is no longer pink. I washed, waxed, vacuumed, and Windex-ed (the windows) it this morning. Damn, it was bad. It still could stand to be waxed again. It was that bad.

I might have gotten A's in my classes. I'll check later, but I wouldn't be too surprised with a B or two. Eh. Oh well.

Well, I gotta go. Got some more pointless chores to do. Ugh. "Welcome home! Here's a list of chores."


Thursday, December 18, 2003
Well, I was told to post something better than just quizzes. LOL. Check some of the older comments to find out what I'm talking about. Haha. Anyways, not much has happened really. My RA, Bobby, dressed up as Santa last night for a floor party. Then he proceeded to dance. Oh my. LOL. I might put up some pictures of that at another time. He also videotaped a wanna-be "Cribs." He just walked down the hall and toured the rooms. Mine was the neatest (cleanest and organized-wise, that is), I guess. That's just because I'm anal and OCD. Well not really, I just like a clean room.

I got an early Christmas present last night too. It was a washcloth for me to put chloroform on. Oh well. Watch out for me now though, because all I need is the chloroform. We had a Secret Santa deal with a $1 limit. I got a nice calendar with cars for my recipient. We also had a karaoke machine, but no one really had the burning desire to bust out into song. I don't blame them. I wouldn't have gone up there, that's for damn sure.

Oh yeah, almost forgot about my other Christmas present I got last night. I've been looking for a new truck (just looking, not really looking to buy or anything) and I have come to decide that my next truck will be a Toyota Tacoma, V6, TRD, Crew Cab (maybe). So Katie has been hearing me ramble and babble about how much I like those trucks, and I guess that inspired her to print off a picture of one. Haha. Actually a pretty cool idea. I got a kick out of it. I wish it were real, but damn, those things cost mucho dinero que no tengo. Sorry, haven't had Spanish in a while and I thought I should keep that skill up. But anyways, tonight we're going to eat out as a group at an excellent Chinese place and then have a mini-Christmas.

In other pointless news for you, my Christmas lights in my room have quit working. Goddamnit. That pisses me off. They looked cool for a few days, but now they're sad. Their memory will live on my pictures though.....*sniff*.....

Well, I need to go pack some crap up for the trip home. I get in late Friday night and maybe I'll see you guys Saturday, maybe not. Sunday I'm golfing with Daddy, but maybe I can squeeze you guys in. But then there's three weeks after that, so hey, whenever. This is my last post until I'm in Redlands, so try not to cry when I don't post for a couple dias (yes! more Spanish).

Sorry for these quizzes substituting for posts. I know you're probably sick of them. But I'm only posting the weird or funny ones, so enjoy them anyways.

Two finals down, two to go. Only bio and speech left. Psych went OK, not great but not bad. Probably got a high B, maybe a low A. Oh well, at least the finals are half done. And as of 1:30 PM, I'll have 3 done and only 1 more to go.

Not much else going on. Tired as hell since I got up at 6:15 today. That used to be late- used to wake up at 6. But now, if I wake up before 8, it's a minor miracle.

No real surprsie here. I love the ocean and all things water. Yay. This one is probably a better reflection of me.

In case you can't tell, I am bored. Haha.

Well, cool. Yay! I'm Professor Frink. I really had no idea who I'd be.

It's five o'clock and for some reason or another, I'm awake. Barely. Anyhoo, like I said earlier, today was my chem final. Pretty easy really. Now I just have psych, bio, and speech to go. Ugh. Two of my most hated subjects. Psych is ok, kind of interesting.
This is a website showing pictures of hated-filled, pissed off cats (and shouldn't that POS be a link? oh well, f*ck it, I tried). Go to the "R" section and find the cat named after me. Haha. Then go to the "K" section and find the evil cat named Katie. Once again, hahaha. oh my, I am bored. And tired. Maybe both. Yeah that's it. Both.

I'm starting to get stuff ready for the trip home. Damn, that drive is going to suck ass. I know, you are probably tired of hearing me bitch about it and you're right. I'm done bitching. Until my ass is actually so sore that I can't sit down. LOL

Monday, December 15, 2003
I just destroyed my chem final. Yay. One down, three to go.

Sunday, December 14, 2003
Sweet! Saddam has been captured! HAHAHA! Bout time.

I've decided that I dislike finals. I mean, I don't have a problem with tests really, I just hate finals. Ugh. Damn bio. I really don't want to study for it. Oh well, it will all be over soon.

I have some holiday cheer for whoever wants some. Greg has already gotten the e-mail. If you would like the e-mail, let me know in the comments section.

Woke up 8:30 this morning after about 5 hours of sleep when I needed about 10. Oh well.

My parents got the Christmas tree and decorated for the first time ever without me. How sad. I guess. Well, at least I didn't have to help haul that bastard tree around. Or hurt myself putting lights up on the second story. And on the plus side, I get to have Christmas at my house this year, instead of having to drive to Ventura like we have been.

Home on Friday night. See you guys later.


Saturday, December 13, 2003
Well, less than a week until I sleep in my bed in Redlands. I drive home Friday after my speech final. Man, that drive is going to suck ass. I think my dad wants to meet me halfway, somewhere in Utah, so he can help with the driving, but hell, might be better just to haul ass through Mormonland. Bastard cult state. As you may be able to tell, I can't stand Mormons anymore. Damn them. Alex knows the main reason for the dislike. But don't get me wrong, just because there are a ton of Mormons here it doesn't mean that I don't like Idaho. They're not as overpowering here. Thankfully. Anyways, enough ranting about the Mormons.

Excited for Christmas. Yay! Presents and such. Family, friends, good food. All of the good stuff.

I'm feeling better in case you're wondering. In case you don't care, then TS to you. I won't tell you the reason for it here anyways.

But now I should get back to studying biology. Damn finals. Damn you lucky people already done with finals and on your way home. Damn you.

Thursday, December 11, 2003
Not much has happened in the last few days really. In news about myself, I put gel in my hair fairly regularly now. Whoop-de-doo, I know. But it's new for me.

I woke up at 7:50 AM today and had to give a group presentation at 8:00 AM all the way across campus. Needless to say, I hauled ass to class carrying a poster, running through the snow. LOL. It turned out OK though. The presentation went well and was pretty funny.

Damn you people who are already done with finals. I hate you (well, not really). I wish I was. But hey, I'm in town from December 20th to January 11th. Katie's there from the 4th to the 11th of January. Yay!

Been a little down the last few days. Maybe I'll tell you guys why at another time. I just don't feel like talking about it right now. But I do want to thank you Katie for being there for me. I do feel much better after being able to talk about that.

Looks like we're going back to Lava Hot Springs tomorrow night as a group date kind of dealie. Should be fun.


Tuesday, December 09, 2003
I added a picture. Everybody here is getting in the Christmas Spirit, so I thought I would too.

I should be working on a group biology project, but I'm obviously not doing it. Oh well. Screw it for now.

Not much really happened in the last day or so. Got my mom and dad X-mas presents. Whoop-de-doo.

My sleeping patterns and habits and such have changed so much. Wow. 8 hours to 4 hours. 9 o'clock to 12 or later. LOL. I mean I'm actually just now starting homework right now as I type.

My family has decided to have a gift exchange on X-mas instead of the absolute mountain of crap we usually have. It's ridiculous and I'm not exaggerating. It's a serious mountain of presents. It takes a few hours to unwrap everything. So maybe this will be less hassle (and cheaper), but damnit, I did like getting about 20 gifts. LOL. That was cool.

Anyways, nothing else to say.


Monday, December 08, 2003
Well, back from Boise now. Good times. Went to the Madrigal Dinner on Saturday. It's a performance put on by the Boise High School Choir where they sing and act out a little play. Funny as hell. Hung out with Katie's friends. Got to see some neat parts of Boise too. Rained almost all three days we were there, but I love rain, so that was no problem.

I would blog more but I'd rather sleep now. Class starts in less than 7 hours.

Friday, December 05, 2003
Going to Boise this weekend. Probably won't blog for a few days. So sorry.....I'm sure you'll miss my daily dose of sarcasm. Or not. Whatever floats your boat, sinks your rock, etc.

You know that I admit
That someone to love like this
Only existed in my prayers
Until I saw her face
I knew I'd found the place
Where I could keep my every faith eternally 'cause

She got it all

All of my love, my hugs, my kisses

Today may have been one of the best days ever. :D
Katie and I went out on a date. Mini golf, dinner, and a night under the stars and moon. The only crappy part was the night under the stars didn't really happen because of the dumb clouds, but it was still awesome. We were up in the mountains (where it was freaking cold, mind you) on a litttle road that was covered in snow. The moonlight would occassionally shine on through the clouds and would illuminate the snow. The feeling was and is not even close to describable. It was so great that it didn't seem real. Didn't seem like I should be in that awesome of a place with that awesome of a person. But there I was. There we were. It was real, it happened.

Wow, that was quite a night. I won't forget that one ever.

Tuesday, December 02, 2003
Well, the rest of the day was pretty uneventful. People played video games in my room for about 6 straight hours before dinner and then about 3 after dinner. Conker's Bad Fur Day. Fun and funny game, but damn, these guys are addicted.

Sounds like some of you guys won't be around January 4-11. Damn the California school system to hell! For those of you who won't be there, that sucks.

I picked up a scholarship today after getting the royal run-around. It was over my tuition, so I got a check. Sweet! That was a highlight of my day.

Ok, probably should hit the hay now.

Monday, December 01, 2003
Damnit, I have a speech to write. I forgot about it. $HIT! And oh yes, my speech teacher is gay. Or at least bi. After class today, he walked by me and said, "Hi Little Rico. Do you have a hot topic for your speech yet? I noticed that you don't talk a lot in class." Yeah, that bastard probably meant "in bed," not in class.
