I have something on my camera that I want to show you, but I left the cable that connects it to my computer in North
Dakota. So for now I'll just give a the only picture I can take at the moment. A
screenshot of my desktop. Yay!
The first rule of writing in my book is to never, ever write in the 2nd person. There is a writer for the Bismarck Tribune,
Tony Spidel, who occasionally uses the 2nd person in his articals, and it infallibly makes me want to gag. It just sounds
horribly trite. How the hell do you, Tony Spilde, know what I would do or feel? You don't, so stop trying. It should never
be used outside of Choose Your Own Adventure stories, and even then it is lame.
Having said that, I appologise for breaking my own number one rule in this bit of writing I did last year. I think it works,
though. I didn't really know what do do with the ending, so I left it unfinsished for six months, then just tacked it on.
What do you think?
As if you needed another reason to not use Internet Explorer, this page doesn't look quite right with that
browser. And I have no intention of fixing it. Do yourself and your children a favor and get another one.
I like Opera. Firefox exists as well.
Something has finally happened to warrant me getting one of these things.
As the event was occurring, I thought to myself, "This story needs to be told," and afterwards I told
the other person involved, "That's it. I'm making a website in honor of this event." He laughed, because
it was funny, but as you can see, I was serious. You can even see the
ruins of a Xanga I created, and after poking around for an hour, abandoned. Here's how the shit went down.
We got home from "Classics Party" at around 3:30 a.m. "We" being my roommate, Mike Lund, and myself. We came
home, and wanted some Hot Cocoa. A quick search of the cupboards and fridge revealed the only chocolate
product in the house to be a jug of Raisenettes. Brief discussion was had over the possibility of converting
the Raisenettes, somehow, into a drinkable form. However, the consensus was that it would be too potent a potable
for us to handle. We needed a warm milk product of some kind, so we improvised. This is what we created:
- Equal Parts Skim Milk, Whole Milk, and Hazelnut Coffee Creamer
- Enough Honey (Grade A Fancy)
- Too Much Nutmeg (For the taste, and hallucinatory affects)
- A spoonful of Nutella (The original creamy, chocolaty, hazelnut
Mix them all together on the stove, and heat untill warm. The Nutella won't actually dissolve, it just breaks apart
into thousands of little brown chunkettes. Enjoy!
It tastes really good, actually.
