Probably the biggest update i’ll ever write. To assist, a bulleted list of
1. Well, this week was a pretty monumental week for myself, as i am now
officially engaged to be married. Instead of boring myself and everyone else
with ‘how’ i popped the question, i’d like to reflect on the whole situation.
I’ve been in a relationship for a really long time… By all accounts we’re
pretty much married already. We live together, pay bills together, etc. Now
it’s just a more accurate title. I couldn’t really be any happier, even
though it was unexpectedly difficult to “pop the question”. The actual
wedding is going to be sometime next summer/fall ish… My bachelor party is
definitely going to involve knockout matches in some capacity.
2. I have absolutely stolen the EXACT CODE from vanlandw.com’s
bauercount to make a much more informative, stimulating, and all around better
“Gamgeecount”. The spawning of this creation is the creative idea of myself,
and my brother McManus. Basically, vanbergs and I were disgusted at the fact
that “Rudy Gamgee” is going to be in season 5 of 24. We view it as almost
certain demise of the series. vanlandw,
on the other hand, seems to really like Rudy Gamgee, and is looking forward to
him joining the cast. Clearly, the brothers McManus were not going to let
such treacherous comments be tolerated without some consequence. As such, i
have dedicated “gamgeecount” as a
site purely dedicated to making fun of vanlandw.
3. Perhaps the worst natural disaster that this country has ever seen
has happened, hurricane Katrina. In the wake of this disaster, i genuinely
think i hate the human race. Love, compassion, heroism; these human traits do
not hold a candle to the disgusting things that we are capable of doing. I’m
jumping ahead… This storm was a category 5 hurricane with sustained winds
of 175 miles an hour. There was a MANDATORY evacuation of the city of New
Orleans. Obviously, i am do not carry a genius level intellect. But, there
is no way in absolute fire breathing hell that i would have been in that city
when hurricane Katrina made landfall. People had all kinds of notice. Why
would you even consider staying? That’s besides the point, people
stayed, now they are swimming in the middle of the nation’s largest pond. So,
then agencies from all walks of life are scrambling to help them get out of
the city of New Orleans… How do people take to this assistance? They shoot
at the choppers that are evacuating people, they loot for anything they can
get, they shoot at doctors and patients being evacuated from hospitals…
aboslutely the most hanus things i can even comprehend. Sure, not everybody
is doing that, but the fact that even some of them can do something
that terrible makes a part of me say “Leave them there, see how they fair
without help”. … … … Maynard says it better than me.
4. I recently had a dream that was straight out of 24… Even though
in my dream i commit a murderous offense, it is set in fiction, so that makes
it cool. In reality, i do not wish to do anything near what is described in
this dream. Let me also preface this scripture by saying that “Jack Bauer
murdered Nina Myers”.
The dream begins with myself and vanbergs throwing a ‘party’ at our parents
house in hart michigan. People are swimming, partying in general, a good time
is had by all. However,
we soon notice that the villainous mistress, none other than Nina Myers, is at
our party!! Vanbergs and I keep giving each other looks to say “I cannot
believe Nina is at our party!!” WE WERE SO ANGRY >:-0
So, mystically vanbergs and I end up wielding two hand held firearms… We
proceed to stalk up our stairs, into my old bedroom, where Nina Myers is
sleeping on a couch. We stand side by side, brothers mcmanus, and proceed to
discharge our weapons in rapid succession; ultimately replicating Jack Bauers
actions. We destroyed the greatest villain. We were brothers McManus. I
woke up with a smile on my face.
5. Vacation is just about half over for me… Alot of people find
themselves still worrying about their jobs while they are on vacation, but i
have a great ability to put it out of my mind. This vacation worked out well,
as ‘my fiance’ also ended up with this week off because she is changing jobs.
We went to a zoo, took a daytrip to saugatuck, got engaged, spent some quality
time together without worrying about working. It has been pretty nice.
Aside from that, i have been playing Grand theft auto, san andreas. This game
is by far the best grand theft auto game to come out, and the Xbox version is
absolutely awesome. It took me forever to get a copy, as it has been
ultimately banned and pulled from every store’s shelves, but i did get a copy,
and i am enjoying the game.
