Well, not really. I mean, I haven’t gotten an internet drive-by yet, at least, but the guys across the street have been eyeing me funny, recently.

Right! Hey! This blog has been dead for two weeks. This is more or less because I lived in three or four different places during that period of time and was incredibly busy taking walks, watching movies from the 90’s and hanging out with awesome people. But! I’m back and a bit more stable in my computer use, now, so I’m finally re-kickin’ this thing, starting tonight! Now that’s it’s summer I’ll be updating at midnight (right at 11:59PM) each night, Sunday through Thursday. I think I’m mostly going to stick to that schedule; there might be some random other posts here and there but for the most part I’m setting things up so that the blog updates with whatever new stuff has been written since the last update will be released at midnight on one of those days. This also means that midnight updates can and often will consist of more than one new post (including this midnight update! Yay!), so do look a bit beyond the first post you see to see if there’s even more stuff to read!

Should be a fun season for this thing, in any case. I’ve got a lot of ideas to run through, including me taking a crack at hacking some video games again and trying to make a short radio drama. Plus, I’ll be recounting some adventures from Santa Fe and Atlanta relatively soon, too.

So, in the summer between 11th and 12th grade I decided I wanted to do stand up comedy. Not entirely sure what I was thinking, though I actually tried out for Brown stand up this past year and got told I should put a little more work into it and I’d have a good shot at it; haven’t tried again yet. I had an opportunity to give it a go at a talent show during a summer camp thing at Duke University (Which is probably worth another post entirely–First time I played “Ten Fingers”/”Never Have I Ever.” Undefeated ever since, haha.) I gave it a try and, by the grace of God, had the foresight to record it for later embarrassment at my wedding. A bit of background: “Giles” is the name of the residence hall we lived in, and Jeff was one of my classmates there. Give it a listen before reading the rest of the post:

I’ve shown this to a lot of people already, but just in case you haven’t seen it yet, here is my semi-infamous youtube video. It’s basically a giant video game reference to¬†Earthbound, a beautiful, touching little video game that I have a lot of affection for. (Coincidentally, it’s also the prequel to Mother 3, a name which you’ve probably seen on a shirt of mine before.) Hopefully the video is sillly enough to warrant posting, even if you don’t get the reference. That’s me in the khakis, at age… 16? 17? Something like that. Watch!

So, my friend is a security guard at one of Brown’s libraries, and told me about this slightly hilarious phenomenon that’s popped up recently. She’s been asked to put information cards on her desk about the swine flu–one side says “SWINE FLU” and lists some swine flu facts, while the other says “STAY HEALTHY” and gives you some “things you can do every day” health tips.
