Here's a group of us playing in the snow at night. I am on the right, the moving blur, running to get out of the cold.

This is me making a snowball to chuck at someone, I forget who. Anyways, I was freezing my ass off here.

Ahhh! Nudity! Not really. This is Big Chris' chest smashed against my window. As you can see, he's ripped.

Here's a cool picture of the X-Mas lights in my room, done in negative exposure. I don't why, but I think this is pretty nifty. That's right, nifty.

I had a plan of reading 40 pages of philosophy today and taking notes. I read about 20 pages. That is bad. Bad Rico, bad. Damn, I have gotten lazy. So for all those out there that said I woudl get lazy, I guess you're right. $hit. Where, oh where did the good little Rico go (the one that did everything way ahead of time)? I mean, it's not like I really miss the old Rico, but I do wish I still had some of the same drive and motivation that I used to have.

It's still snowing. Still. I think there is going to be a foot or so on the ground by tomorrow morning. Maybe not that much, but still a hefty amount. Goddamnit. I wanted some sunshine (not too much though, because I hate pit stains). Anyways, I should go to sleep in a few minutes.

Saturday, February 28, 2004
Well $hit. It snowed again. Everything had basically melted away, but nooooo. It snowed again. I know I said before that I liked snow (and I still do), but it's gotten old and I need some warmth. Anyways, enjoy the pictures.

There's a picture of my bed, since now it takes up about half my room. It's big and I like it. Yay. Oh yeah, there's Katie being studious on it.

That's my newly decorated wall. I took down a bunch of crap and printed out some cool pictures to put up.

This is my TV and shelf. I like the way it's arranged now better than before.

Here's a couple of nerds. Well, at least the bottom one is a nerd. The one on top just loves nerds. Haha.

Here's a few guys from my dorm running barefoot in the snow. I did this too.

The same two guys rolling down a hill with no shirts or shoes. I did this too (unfortunately).

Here's a guy trying to get back the dorm after freezing his ass off. I swear, sometimes, guys can be so dumb. It's just like Mr. Cruickshank's theory that the IQ level of a group of guys varies inversely with the number guys (a lot of guys= stupidity). Anyways, it was pretty fun and I guess we're all going to do it again later.

Try that game. It's pretty fun and very addicting, thus meriting its listing at I can get to level 5, but then I can't do anymore.

Sorry there are still no pictures posted of the remodeled dorm room. They should be up in a another day or so. Still adding some pictures to my walls. I took down a lot of crap and am putting new stuff up. Yay. Ah, the benefits of a single room. I'm sorry to all those with roommates, and those with singles can share my glory and apopreciation for the good life. I mean, I wouldn't mind a roommate and mine was OK when he was still here, but it's so nice to be able to be alone when you need to. It's nice to have that luxury and ability to do whatever the hell you want (not being dirty or gross here, I just mean in general).

I have been introduced to the greatest piece of candy in the entire world. The Confetteria Raffaello. It's a ton of coconut flavoring and an almond and some other stuff. Oh god, it's heavenly. You should find some and buy them and eat them. Hahaha.

I went to the Pocatello mall today to get some crap for my mom's birthday. Katie and I went in JC Penney's, where we saw a T-shirt that said "I love nerds." It was only 7 bucks, so I figured why not? I got it for her. Hahaha. That means she loves me, because I am a nerd. We ate dinner out tonight because the dorm food sucks ass. We went to this little Mexican dump called Rolberto's. Katie said it was very reminiscient of the dumps in California and the craphole (but craphole with great food) we stopped at in Vegas. I thought so too, it was a lot like ones in San Diego. Oh man, I hit the classy joints for food, let me tell you. Anyways, this place has the biggest burritos ever. And they weigh a good amount too. I had some of the best chorizo ever (for all you gringos: chorizo is sausage, eggs, chili powder, and this one had potatoes too).

Anyways, today was a pretty decent day (except for the fact that I found out I have another Calc test on March 9th and it snowed/sleeted/rained/precipitated today). But for now, I need sleep. This was a lot longer than I expected it to be. Wow. Sometimes I amaze myself. This is a partial amazement time.

Thursday, February 26, 2004
Well, today was an all right day. Yay. Don't know what the hell was up with yesterady. Oh well, forget it, it's gone. Just had class today, and oh yeah, Katie and I spent forever changing my room around. I got another bed, so now I have a large bed. Yay. We moved all the furniture around in my room. I like it. I might post some pics later, maybe tomorrow (or wait, is that today?)

We had an '80s party with karaoke (spelling?) today. Some kids really dressed up for it (definitely not yours truly). It was OK for a little while, but it got old after awhile.

So yeah, I hate my English class. My professor thinks I'm stupid and helpless when it comes to writing, but does she try to help us in class? Oh no. No no. We go over comma rules. Goddamnit, that doesn't help me at all. I can use commas correctly. Just tell me what you want in the next paper, you bitch. I don't want another C-.

I'm happy right now. I have no Chemistry lab this week, which means I have no class tomorrow (once again, today) at 8:00 AM. Yay. If I did, I would hope that I would already be asleep. But I don't, so here we are. I'm typing and you're reading.....hahaha.

OK, I'm done.

Tuesday, February 24, 2004
OK, I typed the part starting with "Do you ever have those days where nothing...." going to the thing about exercise first, then added this part a few hours later. Why am I such a dumbass? Why do I worry about the smallest $hit? Why do I overreact? Why do I spaz out for no reason at all? Why do I say stupid things and do stupid things? I hate that I can be soooo goddamn selfish and childish sometimes. Why do I hurt those that I love most? Why?!?!!? I love those certain people, yet I seem damn good at hurting them. I swear, sometimes, I just don't know why I should be able to love. I don't know why I'm allowed to love people, because I just seem to hurt them. I hate it when I hurt people, especially those that mean so much to me. Katie, I'm sorry about tonight (probably be last night by the time you read this). I really am. Yes, I think I may be crying again. I love you so much.

Do you ever have those days where nothing seems to go right? Where everything you touch turns to $hit? Where you try to help people and nothing good comes from it? And you can't even say anything right, it always comes out wrong? It feels like I had one of those today. I don't know why. Just feel kind of numb and pissed right now. One of the guys in my hall just did something funny and I know that it was funny, but I didn't laugh. It seems like it's a chore to talk to people right now. I don't know. I don't know how else to explain it or what else to say.

I realized that I have a pet peeve. I hate it, and I mean hate it, when people don't keep promises or do what they say. I hate it. Even if it's not breaking a promise, it's still like you're lying to someone. Passively lying, but nonetheless lying. And I hate it. Maybe it's because I suck at lying, maybe it's because the truth is usually easier to tell. Not sure why I hate that so much. It just pisses me off and it pisses me off more yet when I do it.

I think I release frustration through exercise. I've noticed I run harder or do more ab workouts when I'm ticked.

OK, Alex helped me add a song to my blog. Yay. This is a Good Charlotte song, pretty cool, I think. Anyways, thanks to Alex for helping out with that! Yay! I always realize how computer-illiterate I am whenever I ask for help with some of this stuff. I mean, I needed help with links, pictures, and now this. I suck at computer stuff. I can turn it on, type, and turn it off. Wow. That is quite a repertoire of skills.

Well, I need to get back to my Philosophy paper. Socrates says blah, blah, blah.

Monday, February 23, 2004
Sorry for the lack of updates. This weekend was boring. I stayed here at school. I did homework and exercised. Fun stuff.....not really.

I know I already asked this, but when is everybody's spring break? Mine is from March 13-21. I get in on the 13th at Ontario and fly out on the 20th.

So it's a lot warmer here now, the snow is melting and I can wear hoodies now. Yay. Was starting to get a little tired of the cold.

So apparently, I suck at writing. I got a C- on my English paper. Goddamnit. I think my professor hates me (and believe me, it's mutual). I can't stand her arrogance and her superiority complex. It's like her $hit doesn't stink and whatever I write is an experiment that has gone horribly awry. F*ck me. I can't stand that. I am a perfectionist and a C- does not make my day. I found this out in a face-to-face conference that everyone to go through. I hate being told directly to my face that I suck at something. I know she didn't use the term "suck," but the hint was there. That's what she meant.

I slept in three of my four classes today. Not for the whole length of class, just some of it. Oh well. That's what I get for not sleeping much last night. Eh.


Friday, February 20, 2004
OK, I am tired right now. I went rock-climbing with a guy (Christian) in my hall for about one hour. Wow, he is good. He can do some awesome climbs that I can't even come close to doing. Then I ran 2 miles with another friend (Chris-Chris). I played a tiny bit of tennis with the friendly Katie (the same one that plucks and shaves me). Then I think I did ab stuff for another hour.

I just got through watching Gothika. Oh my. That is a creepy movie. Pretty startling and stuff. I admit it, I jumped a few times. I just wish we hadn't had these 3 black people behind us. Nothing against black people, just these particluar ones. They couldn't seem to shut up. Ever. They would jump at a scary part and then laugh and make fun of one another for a long time afterwards. A little of that is OK, I mean, I understand. That's part of the fun of scary movies. But when it never ends and they keep it up the whole movie, it is freaking annoying. But back to Gothika: good movie. I recommend it as well. Even if you don't like Halle Berry, it's still a good one.

Ah crap, I need sleep.

I am a big f*cking boy. I can run my own life. I can manage things. I don't need 24-7 help and guidance. The training wheels came off a long time ago. I want to be my own person. I want to be on my own. I thought I managed that by moving away to Idaho. Apparently, I f*cking failed miserably.

My mom called today and told me that I could go to Boise, but I told her that I had already made the decision not to go and Katie had another ride to Boise. I already had decided (and by I decided, I mean my mom decided). She started crying and trying to give me a goddamn guilt trip. She asked if I was mad and I told her I was pretty pissed. She cried harder. What the hell are the tears for? I don't get her at all. When she says yes about something like this, she always means no and will never let you forget it if you do it. And when she's crying, you never do the opposite of what you know she wants. Some folks here say I should just go, but I have a feeling I would be disowned or lectured until the end of time if I do. So I don't get to go to Boise this weekend. Motherf*cker. I can't stand my own mother sometimes. She can be so goddamn ignorant, oblivious, stupid, and outright annoying as hell. I just finally cut her off and told her to quit arguing and I kind of hung up on her. I was so motherf*cking frustrated when I got off the phone with her that it made me cry a little. And no, I wasn't crying because she was. I was so frustrated and pissed off that I just couldn't express it any other way.

I wish I could live MY life, not the life my mom wants me to live. They're different lives and I want mine. F*ck her planned life for me. It includes living at home and having absolutely no fun whatsoever. So yay. Fun f*cking weekend coming up.

Tonight ended better. Katie and I went out to Red Lobster and watched Miracle, the hockey movie. Very good. I recommend it.

Excuse me while I go punch my pillow.

Wednesday, February 18, 2004
I was right about my Calc III test. I got an 89. I called a high B or low A, got the high B. Oh well. Not bad really. I'll take it. Not anything like one of Hearn's tests, but that's OK. As Katie pointed out, this is college. Thank God (metaphorically) it is too. I love college, as compared with high school. Mainly because I hated REV by the end and wanted to get the hell out of there.

Anyways, my mom is being a raging, obsessive, overprotective bitch right now. Pardon the bitch part, but I think it's slightly warranted. Katie and I were planning on going to her house in Boise for the weekend. But no, I mention it to Mommy, and she has a thousand reasons why not too. The weather, the roads, school, homework, and she thinks Katie and I are too serious. Well, $hit, I do love Katie. There's no hiding or getting around that. She means the world to me. And I do love my mom, but it's a mom-ly kind of love. She's always been there for me. But she does need to butt out of my personal social life and stay in the family sphere of influence. There are different spheres and she is trying to invade them all. Stay the hell out!!! i like my spheres the way they are. Thanks for having concern that I'm going to screw up my life by getting married and such, but I am a big boy and I don't plan on marrying for awhile and it takes two to marry. Katie has the same view. She doesn't want to marry right now any more than I do. It's not like we're going to run off to Vegas and get hitched at the first dump we see. Goddamn. I mean, I can see us together eventually. That is envisionable (if that's a word). But not for a long time.

I guess Mommy is scared that some little Siren (Greek mythology- look it up) is leading her pure, innocent boy away from the enlightened, righteous path of virtue and wisdom (and single life). Oh no, what a shame that little Rico is straight and has a social life. Oh no, what a shame that Rico cares about another human soul. Oh no. No no no. It's hell to have a girlfriend, according to Mommy. I mean, you're supposed to go through life living with Mommy forever, right? (insert sarcastic laugh here) God, I am sick of her asking about our relationship and stuff.

Since my mom wants to know how serious Katie and I are and she thinks that us going to Boise means we're getting hitched, what did she think the whole week Katie was California? What the hell? I can't go to Boise (not even four hours away), but Katie can fly to California and stay there for a week in my house? What the hell is wrong here? Am I missing something?

Anyways, enough of a $hitty topic. I saw Dogma the other day. Good movie. Bashes on religion and is great. Hahaha.

It was warm today. And by warm, I mean 45. Yes, that's right. 45 degrees Fahrenheit= warm. Some of the snow melted during the rain last night and more melted during the day. So it's looking more like spring now. Yay. Maybe they'll fix the plethora of potholes that plague the city and campus (now that is some awesome, astounding alliteration- haha, oh god I am bored and dumb).

This is Rico being an idiot and playing with an icicle. This was taken from inside the nice warm car while Rico went outside in the cold.

More of the same.

This is my room after Katie got through with it. You can see the culprit in the corner. She covered the floor with pictures of herself, then put up streamers, and put Hershey kisses on the floor. Pretty cool idea.

This is Katie (obviously) right before we went to dinner. I dressed up too (kind of).

This is the snowstorm that is happening as I type.

Recap of Valentine's
Allrighty, we'll start with midnight. My friend (the one in the picture above) and I wrote the message that you could see in the last post in the snow. That took a few hours. I went to bed at 3:00 AM. He didn't go to bed until 7:00 AM. I got up at 9:00 and took Katie up to the pillars and the message in the snow at 9:30. She liked it (I hope). We were supposed to have chocolates and sparkling apple cider overlooking the town, but it was too cold and windy. Damn. We went back to my room, where we did that and I gave her roses and a card.
Katie and the other friendly Katie had a plan for me and Chris-Chris (the friend pictured above). We had to go on a treasure hunt all over campus (zigzagging from one end of campus to another about 10 times). Anyways, we had to find these hearts with clues on them and they finally led us back to the dorm. We went in our rooms to find that the Katies had destroyed them. Chris-Chris's walls were covered in pictures of the friendly Katie and my floor was covered in pictures of my Katie. I was pretty surprised. Oh yeah, and I got boxers. One pair was SpongeBob, calling me Nerdy Pants. The other pair is black with a smiley face on it.
After that, we went to Applebee's and ate. Good food. After dinner, we came back to the dorm. I turned off the lights in my dorm room, turned on the Christmas lights, and a good song. Yay. I tried to sing, but I suck. Oh well. It was still cool in my room, what with the Christmas lights and the streamers and all. We just kind of laid around for awhile and then gave massages. Ah yes, a great Valentine's Day all the way around. Yay for having someone special to share it with. Love you Katie!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

This is the hill behind our dorm, where my friend and I wrote a nice message in the snow. It was freaking freezing and dark when we did it, but it came out allright. It's supposed to say "I love (heart) U Katie." But the angle from which I took the picture makes it hard to see. Oh yeah, my friend and I bought Gatorade Fruit Punch powder and filled in the letters with it. It looks pretty cool in person. We tried to make it somewhere to the left of this picture, but the hill was too steep and the snow was about 2 or 3 feet deep there. We had to tie a rope to a tree and use rock climbing skills to get back up the hill. Then we said screw it. And this was about 1:00 AM. We finished around 3:00 AM.

Friday, February 13, 2004
I took some pictures today. One is just a weird picture of a Christmas light in my room. This is one of the largest icicles I think I have ever seen. It is just a chunk of ice on the side of a building. And the other one is the snow and the walkway in front of my dorm room.

Anyways, nothing really new to report from Idaho. Sorry. This was a visual post, nothing really mentally stimulating.


That was Katie being creepy with the digital camera. LOL. She took some cool ones.....I might put them on here if I ever have some time.

I had my Calc III test. Wasn't bad at all. Now watch, I'll probably get a D. Oh well. But I do feel fairly confident that I got a high B, low A. So that's good. And yes, you read right, I would be happy with a B. Shocking, I know. But hey, this is a hard freakin' class.

So I guess I'm coming home for spring break. March 15-21. Katie kind of wanted me to go to Boise with her, but sadly (for her), she gets her wisdom teeth pulled that week. And Mommy made the plane reservations and told me that I didn't really have a choice. So it will be good to see you guys again. And Alex, if we do any more "deeds," we're not getting caught. I just decided that. No more frantic running. No more panicked hiding out and such. I know that's part of the fun and all, but cops and the like are not included in that fun.

So I've been making snowflakes lately. Haha. That probably came off as queer. Oops. No, I'm very straight, but this game is pretty fun.

Make a Snowflake

Thursday, February 12, 2004
Today got off to a $hitty start. I hate forgetting things. I had a Chem Lab at 8:00 AM. My lab partner and I made it there on time (even a couple minutes early) only to discover that we had forgotten our lab notebooks. Goddamnit. We had to run back to the dorm (in a mild snowstorm, up this hill, up these stairs). Oh, how it sucked. I was still tired from my mile run last night.

Oh well. At least lab is over for this week. Whew. Bio lab yesterday sucked ass. So pointless and long. So boring. I have trouble staying awake and looking like I'm paying attention in there. Ugh. The instructor doesn't help either. Tejaswita Karve is her name. She doesn't speak too much English and what she can speak, I can't understand. So I just tune her out and then I got nothing to keep me alert.

Been studying a little for my Calc III test tonight. Kind of scared of it. We'll see.

This is for Katie. You're cute, but psycho. My psycho. LOL. (inside joke, no worries)

Wednesday, February 11, 2004
I got my eyebrows plucked and my neck shaved today. Haha. Squeaky clean now.

I have a sudden desire to read. Mainly The Stand, the Stephen King book I bought, but I actually don't mind doing some of the English reading right now. Except for Waverley because it sucks ass.

Katie and I went to Wal-Mart today. She bought me something because she went off alone and I wasn't allowed to be there or look at the sack she carried to my truck. Hmmmm.......something is being planned. I am a little excited (because this will be the first real Valentine's I have ever had and because of the surprise of whatever I'm getting or is going to happen). I wonder if I should be a little Anyways, I have a surprise or two for Katie, so it should be a good day. Yay!

Tuesday, February 10, 2004
Hi there. My name's Rico Pelazini. You may remember me from such films as the Physics Projects videos and the Iraqi Econ video. Haha. Ah, the greatness of "The Simpsons." Good ole Troy McClure. Haha.

I got my absentee ballot in the mail the other day for the REPUBLICAN primaries (yes, you read that right......REPUBLICAN). I voted. Yay. I feel so privileged to have contributed to the rgeat democracy of the United States, since one vote Republican vote will really matter against the millions of Democrats in California (*insert sarcasm here*).

I also filled out a couple job applications for the summer for PGA and Oak Valley. So I guess I will be working all summer. Damnit. Oh well, money is nice, I guess.

There's a couple that lives in my dorm that got together a little while before Katie and me. All they do now is fight. And makeup and fight some more. It's annoying. The guy seems liek a decent guy, and the girl seems kind of vicious. She bites him and makes him bleed. But I'm sure he does stuff to piss her off at times. I mean, it can't be all one-sided. He can't be a total angel and she can't be a total bitch. Oh well. I just heard her let out her high-pitched, spine-tingling, loud scream. That's what made me think of all this. She screamed because someone scared the hell out of her. Haha.

I took a Bible book quiz for fun. Haha. Oh well. Religion. Haha.
You Are Romans
You are Romans.

Which book of the Bible are you?

It snowed here about 6 inches yesterday. You guys are probably getting tired of hearing about it, but that's the main news around here. You really can't do anything outside here, besides sledding. So the main topic of conversation is the weather. So yeah. It's cold. It's snowy. Did I mention it's cold? And yeah, as I write this, it's snowing yet again. But I'm not complaining, because I like it. Probably just because it's a nice change.

I wrote a paper today about inhumanity. The inhumanity of the registration of classes here at ISU. LOL. Oh God, what pure, unadulterated BS.

I worked on my short story again today. I have two parts done, but it's not really ready for you guys to read. I need to add another part and I need to go through and edit it a few times. I know I f*cked up somewhere, I'm sure.

I have been playing this game a little lately. Let me know if you can get past level 9. I can't. It goes too damn fast and I look retarded trying to click as fast as I can.


Hmmm......I didn't know I was that angry. Oh well......screw you all! J/K. Haha.

Last night was awesome. Big Chris, Chris-Chris, and I iced down this little hill outside our dorm. We then proceeded to sled down it and into the fence. Haha. Good fun. The two guys with me decided to try standing on the sled. That is so hard and I guess the idea of falling on ice wasn't too great, so we decided to go to the sledding hill. It was great. It was dark (11:00 PM) and windy, but the hill was slick and fast. We hauled ass down it. Big Chris fell pretty hard and almost got a concussion (he might have, we don't know). I hit my ass and wrist hard, my wrist is little stiff today. Fun times though.

Went to Denny's last night at midnight. Had a funny waitress who obviously hated her job. She was cussing about it and she really got pissy when a huge group of Mormon cultists came in. Haha.

Homework time unfortunately.

The countdown was for Valentine's. Jeez, Alex, come on now. If you don't know Valentine's Day, you're screwed. LOL. J/K. Anyways, I gotta go.

Friday, February 06, 2004
I finished a strange, yet very good book today. It was one Katie wanted me to read. It's called Perks of Being a Wallflower. I forgot who wrote it. It's a series of letters that tell the story of about one year of a 9th grader's life. Pretty neat.

I went sledding today and happily, no one, including yours truly, got hurt. Sweet. That's always a bonus.

I had my Calc III class today. For the last two sessions, the professor hasn't been at either location of ISU. He recorded himself previously and is having the people show the tapes of him teaching. In the first one, he told us that it was too bad if we had any questions because he couldn't answer them. And today, he had the overhead thing zoomed in too far and we couldn't see half the stuff he was lecturing on. LOL. And we couldn't do jack$hit about it.

Katie and I have been trying to do this one f*cked up puzzle game at Try it. We have only gotten to Level 27. So goddamn frustrating. I give up too easily probably, but I felt like chucking the computer out the window after about 5 minutes. Anyways, share my pain.


Do you ever have the days where you are happy without reason? Or sad? Well, today was my happy day. I don't know why. I was just freakin' happy all day. It was a good one.

Wednesday, February 04, 2004
Damn, I had class from 9 to 5 today. Sucked ass. So very tired now. I hardly have the urge to lift the spoon to my mouth (*eating mac and cheese*), but it's so tasty and I am hungry. And by the way, I was wrong before if I said I gained 3 or 4 pounds. The scale is off; I gained about 7 or 8. Not really a bad thing for me though, even if it is all tub and has concentrated around my abs.

Snowed all day here. Pretty light, but constant snowfall. Yay. I like it. But that's probably only because it's something different than sweating my brains out in California. I guess anything is better to me than getting huge pit stains.

9 days left. The countdown begins.

A geek quiz with more accurate answers...
brought to you by Quizilla

Well, yes, I am a geek. A nerd. Whatever. I don't really care, I just wanted to see what this quiz would say.

It appears that Katie and the other friendly Katie are planning something or maybe they just went to buy gifts. I don't know. I'm quivering in suspense. Well, not exactly quivering, but somewhat excited and interested to see what is going to happen on Valentine's Day. Hmmm..... good thing the friendly Katie's boyfriend (Chris-Chris, the guy that got messed up sledding) and I have something(s) planned as well. Muahahaha (that was supposed to be an evil laugh, yet I don't know why that would be evil). Anybody have any romantic or scintillating plans they'd like to share? Because I'll share mine after Valentine's, but not until after (because that special someone reads this and we wouldn't want to ruin the surprise, now would we?).

My relatives sent me this e-mail. It's a bunch of quotes from Andy Rooney. If you don't know who that is, he's an 82 year old TV personality who likes to rant on 60 Minutes. Enjoy.

"I like big cars, big boats, big motorcycles, big houses and big campfires.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some government stooge with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away to crack addicts for squirting out babies.

I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason, that is why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl

I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia, it is an opinion. I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers.

The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America.

Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America; and see what happens. Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door.

I know what sex is, and there are not varying degrees of it. If I received sex from one of my subordinates in my office, it wouldn't be a private matter or my personal business. I would be "FIRED" immediately!

I believe that if you are selling me a milk shake, a pack of cigarettes, a newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter of fact, if you want to be an American citizen, you should have to speak English!

My father and grandfather didn't die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours.

I think the police should have every right to shoot your sorry self if you threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word "freeze" or "stop" in English, see the above lines.

I feel much safer letting a machine with no political affiliation recount votes when needed.

I know what the definition of lying is.

I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you are qualified for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, trinket store, or any other business.

We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars to defend their freedoms, so that decades later they could come over here and tell us our constitution is a living document; and open to their interpretations.

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

I know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and television. That doesn't stop you from watching them.

I believe a self-righteous liberal or conservative with a cause is more dangerous than a Hell's Angel with an attitude.

I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and continue to make more. If it ticks you off, go and invent the next operating system that's better, and put your name on the building.

Ask your buddy that invented the Internet to help you.

It doesn't take a whole village to raise a child right, but it does take a parent to stand up to the kid; and smack their little behinds when necessary, and say "NO!"

I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please don't pretend they are a political statement. And, please, stay home until that new lip ring heals. I don't want to look at your ugly infected mouth as you serve me French Fries!"


Well, $hit. My English teacher gave out an assignment for another paper. Just when I had finished the first one, BAM! Another one. It's like she doesn't want us to have a life and/or any fun.

Katie and I took a compatibility test. We turned up 84% similar and 92% complementary. That's pretty high, I think.

What Famous Leader Are You?

Wow, now that quiz was pretty accurate. Cool. Too bad I'm emaciated. LOL.

Thanks go to Alex for adding my wonderful truck to his website. Haha. Oh God, that is one beat-up truck. So many miles.

Little Red Pickup.

Once again, I apologize for the short, $hitty post. But I promise I am working on my short story now. Going to be awhile before it's done though.

OK, I apologize for the crappy post last night (well, really this morning). Here's a better one, I hope.

Here I sit in English class,
Almost asleep, bored off my ass.
I wonder why I'm here,
But to an answer, I'm nowhere near.
Thoughts and fancies come to pass,
But none having any matter nor mass.
Somedays I yearn for the mere
Predicting abilities of a seer.
But then I realize if I could see
The future, there would no surprise for me.

I've got an idea for short story, but I have to work on it a lot still. Haven't written anything, but we'll see.

I'm in a quiet mood today. Not really sure why. Just feel like being quiet, observing the world. Or maybe I just don't have anything worthwhile to say. Oh well.

Well, it snowed a little bit this evening. So yay. I like it.

Valentine's Day is approaching. You other guys (and girls) out there better remember or you're probably f*cked. LOL.

Goddamn Patriots. I really wanted Carolina to win. Oh well, what can you do?

I have put on about 3 or 4 pounds in the last few days. What the hell? Rico gaining weight? What's wrong with this picture?

OK, I think I should hit the hay since I can't really think of anything else to say now.

OK, yesterday wasn't as bad as I made it out to be. What doesn't kill you and yours only makes them stronger. So I guess I (and by I, I mean we) am stronger. Obviously, my day/night had something to do with Katie. I won't go into details, but everything is fine today. We got stuff sorted out. I love you Katie!!!

$hit, I did hours of Calc III homework today. Took literally forever. And I have a test for that bastard coming up. Oh God. Scary. Click the link if you want to see the stuff I'm doing in class. Go to review problems and it should open for ya.

Hard Calc Problems.

Darkness, obscurity, desperation.
Hopes dashed as hearts hurt.
Depression, anger, frustration.
Feelings, they turn to dirt.
But then you hold my hand,
Warmth, comfort, secure.
Love flows like water on the sand.
Soulmates, love that wil endure.

I am going to have a kind of "mood" picture with each entry from now on (well, for a little while anyways). Enjoy it. LOL.

OK, I have to go to sleep now. I cannot function too well right now.
