Well, ok, I've had a lot more than two crazy ideas in my life. But that's beside the point.

First off, let's abuse the Marquee tag a little bit.

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] marasca!

Also, Happy Birthday to the United Nations. Just because.

Right, all that's out of the way now. On to crazy stuff.

Last year I tried this crazy thing called NaNoWriMo. Yes, some of you may have heard of it. Basically, folks who like writing set themselves up with the challenge of writing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Specifically, the 30 days that November hath. It's an interesting challenge and exercise for folks who like writing for fun- the focus is on quantity over quality, so the end result is something that is not entirely pretty, but sometimes pretty funny.

So, like I said, I tried it last year. I even succeeded, which was surprising. So I think I'll do it again this year. I also opened up the floor to folks who were interested in torturing their eyes and brains reading what I'd written, and I'll do it again. So if you want to read crazy jibba-jabba, post a comment and I'll add you to the filter. Act now and you'll even get added to the filter where you can read last year's offering. It's a good chance for you to see what you're getting yourself into- if your brains melt into protoplasm reading the old one, you can likely predict your fate if you press onward.

(Note: Real and Serious Writers are totally exempt from this post. You know who you are.)

And, finally, because I can't make an entirely serious post, I'll leave you with this:

EDIT: Also, last night's big accomplishment was teaming up with my friend Chris and scoring double 100% playing "Shout at the Devil" on Guitar Hero II. Truly my life has no meaning. At least beer still loves me.
So, the other day, last weekish sometime, was my birthday. Once again, SO OLD!

Things I did, followed by Things I thought about. Oooh, introspective! )
Last Friday we were accosted by ninjas.

Segue into obvious story here. )

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] angledge!

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] ghostwriterxx!

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] kikimoose!

Happy Birthday (tomorrow) [livejournal.com profile] spiffington!

October's a great month. Some of my favorite people have birthdays here, most notably today, with [livejournal.com profile] angledge and [livejournal.com profile] ghostwriterxx celebrating today. I hear [livejournal.com profile] ghostwriterxx is finally able to drink legally!

[livejournal.com profile] chrysoberyl, let your main man know I said happy birthday to him too. He needs to get his livejournal ass in gear. Also, Happy Birthday to you... several weeks late. You're another one of those wonderful Octoberfest birthdays that I remembered, then forgot, then remembered, then forgot again. That would be my bad.

And coming soon, [livejournal.com profile] deinemuse and [livejournal.com profile] marasca will take their steps forward on the Line Of Age, still within the bounds of October fun. Amazing! And [livejournal.com profile] spiffington tomorrow! So much fun!

Anyone else? Speak up now! I'm old and can't hear well!
once again, alcohol takes command o the sensesa and I write a meesssage for you all in somewhatat less that completel sobrietey. Woot.

For bmy birthday I did nothing exceptional. but today I made up for it by partying down like no tomorrworow. Thank you to my roomonatates who made this party possible. mmmm, party.

lots of people werew here. some brought igggifts. some brought alsocohol. all wa sgood.. Lauried daanced around in her undergarments. that was funnky. others came right now they;r dotormenting sleeping people because its funny. ahehee. lots of fucked up pictures have been takedn tonight. it's all bad. good thing i dont know how to imagelink or stuff becaues that would make some funny pics online. and movies dottoto too. but tha's up to deinemuse to link up. I can't hyperlink right now. too complex

much was drunk. much happened. can't rclall it all right now. but we have quotes o the night, from so far as now. now is 3:30 am. earlier was earlier. so that;s before now.

"Anna, who;s the crack whore who blew hersel up?" - Se Sue

"I'm a bejeweeled mohterfucker." - Stacy

"Is that all vodka?
"Well, I suppose some of the ice melted." - Tym/Hans

"Look, I blew a Smurf!" - Stacy

"This vacuum cleaner will satisfy me. " - Stacy

I'm sure more wuqutoes were made, and will be made. Hoh wyeah, Laurie was raped by montecore. hes a big stuffed tiger.


ass intyms face. he like that a lot. drinking. everythign's sideways.

see you alll altera later.

Happy birthday to [profile] ladybugbutt! She's old!

Happy belated birthday to [profile] thereject, who happens to have the same birth date as I do. Coincidence? Or more?

Happy future birthday to any other Taureans I know. That includes you, [profile] xthevalkyriex, and... probably some other people. You know who you are.

I'm 33. In German, that's called a schnappszahl- any age divisible by 11. Tradition is that you drink extra-heavily on such birthdays. Focusing especially, but not exclusively, on schnapps. I can accomplish this, yea verily! So, if you're turning 22 or 33 or whatever this year, DRINK UP! All of Germany commands you!
So, the overall alcoholic tally for the past four days sees me sacrificing yet another substantial percentage of viable liver tissue for fun and sinning. Oh well.

And so it begins... )

It continues here... )

Even more here... )

Does it never end? )


Jun. 17th, 2003 08:56 am
Well, my two week vacation at home got off to a fine start this weekend. Friday night, went off to NYC for dinner to celebrate [profile] fizrep's birthday. He was pretty much the youngest person there. What a child... heh. Our quest for Hulk Hands went unsatisfied, as Toys R Us closed at 11:00 pm. How annoying... you'd think that any store in the area of Times Square would be legally obligated to stay open until, say, three in the morning, just out of principal. Hmph. So instead we went to the Broadway City Arcade and played air hockey. My ignominious defeat was averted, fortunately, when the puck flew off the table and landed in the garbage can behind me. Game over!

The weekend was spent helping Kodiak move into his new rental house up in Upper Ass, NY. Nice house, big enough for partying, at least up until the baby arrives. Then all parties are null and void. Stupid babies. Found out that Anthony married his mail-order bride. That's nice. Lameass.

Monday... Great Adventure! Oh, ye who would not heed the wisdom of going yesterday, woe unto ye! The park was pretty empty for most of the morning, and the weather was perfect. Thanks to the incomparable magic of Q-Bot, [profile] fizrep and I took on most of the major rides within two hours, and still had time to spare. Superman, the new ride of the season, kicks ass. Anyone who reads this, heed my words: Get to the park before opening moment, and the second the gates open, make a mad dash for the Superman ride and take the time to wait for the front row. It's worth it, I promise. Except for you, [profile] deinemuse. You can chill in Bugs Bunny Land.

And so, today, I rest at home, peaceful, relaxed, and not working. Again. Ahh, the glory. Vacation time rules.

Quote of the Day (hist): "I'm having a memory, but it's a present memory." - [profile] angledge

German Lesson of the Day: Today's colloquialism is "Himmel, Asch, und Zwiln." It's essentially an archaic curse, today's equivalent might be "for the love of God" but much stronger. Literally translated, it means "heaven, ass, and thread." How these three things come together to form a strong curse is beyond me, but I do know that when I heard that out of my dad, I busted a move, because I was due for an asswhuppin' right then and there.
The big scoop: on a scale of one to ten, X-Men 2 kicked ass. I vote it Better Than The First One, and I liked the first one. But I won't give out spoilers here... not that it matters, since anyone reading this probably has already seen the movie anyway. If you haven't, go see it. And invite me with you; I'll go again in a heartbeat.

After the movie, we went out and (come on, avid fans of my journal, you know what comes next...) went drinking! Well, went to Chevy's and ordered bunches of margaritas. Yeah, that's drinking. We're good. Anyway, that was loads of fun, special thanks to [profile] angledge for her gift of yummy chocolates (sorry about the train thing...), and I went to bed at 1:30 am, exhausted. Perfect.

Sooooo... Matrix Reloaded. Who wants some of that action? That's right, I'm an action movie junkie. Special effects and combat are all good.

I think I need coffee. Rather, more coffee. I'm done.
That's right, it's my birthday. El Cinco de Mayo, no less. Mexicans love me. I'm the spirit of the revolution!

Ok, enough of that. Needless to say, the weekend was spent with no small quantity of alcohol involved. Anyone who's read my previous journal entries should assume this as a given. So, beer, wine, chambord, vodka, something, sangria, something else, champagne, and maybe something else, but I'm not quite sure.

Today: Sobriety returns, allowing for the enjoyment of X-Men 2 tonight. And after that... well, something. Maybe some birthday drinking. Sounds like a plan. What do you think, liver? Liver? Hellloooo... oh, now I remember...

Quote of the day (fri): "You have no more liver. It's just a charred cinder whimpering in pain." - Someone. Details are a bit fuzzy there.
