me so tired
I really should be heading off to bed, but I feel like I should write since I already invested some effort into this and it has been a while. I can't believe it's june already. I'm kinda bummed that I have to leave in a week and get my hair cut and shine my very dull boots. I won't be gone long, but it's going to be a shock to have a schedule in my otherwise scheduleless life. plus jet lag.

i had a great time at the senior prom. i don't think amie could have made me feel more special. i'm so glad that i got those tickets for john mayer now. she definitely deserves them. also, I had a blast at her graduation party even though I just sat around and talked (plus the B-ball) with family and friends. the only bad part was....since my dad came out of his hole for the weekend...everyone saw how similar we are and it was a tad frightening. they even thought he was cool. that gives me the heebiejeebies.

I also saw "About a Boy" which was pretty decent for a chick flick. I have to give props to Jack Maguire cuz i can get some of those artistic subtleties that the creators use to make a statement without words... WITHOUT someone explaining it to me. makes me feel like i'm smarter than i really am. anyway, as far as the movie goes, it was basically telling the story of this guy who was just taking up space despite the fact that he had like everything that someone would want from a certain modern American cultural/societal perspective. of course, he finds what he is missing (other people) and he actually feels like he's part of something meaningful. most normal people understand that of course you need to depend on other people and experience things with them, but I know that I definitely have an ugly selfish side and I can see different degrees of it in other people. i forget where I was going with this, except maybe that this idea about no man being an island is one thing the Air Force has got down pretty good amidst all of its faults (and there are many). that nothing really means anything unless you're looking out for or working together with someone else. if you don't do that....then you're just a waste....you're just blank...the scene when Will realized that was pretty good.

anyway....i got to get ready for sleepy....later

I'm a working citizen again
I got a job at the Family Fun Spot. It's ok, I'm allowed to watch TV when we get slow so it's not that taxing, but I'm in charge of a lot of money, because I actually work at the hockey rink where there is like 100 teams that play throughout the week.

Yeah so Sayce is back and I showed him,casey, and killer all of my baller skills I learned (=zero) on Sat. Amie's in Pitt right now doing orientation stuff. I'm so glad it's only a weekend and no longer.

I went to church tonight at COS, very VERY good. I love hanging out with guys who I share that bond with and who we can talk to about our really personal thoughts.

I'm really tired right now, so my it's hard to get some quality stuff down. I'm just going to hit the sack. That's such a weird saying, it sounds like a phrase used in women's defense classes. night.

What the hell is a Laker anyway?
I dislike them all very greatly. I wish they would just lose. LOSE!

Did anyone hear the story (I know Amie did) about the guy who played Russian Roulette with a semiautomatic pistol? It really happened, and I honestly don't feel that badly.

Speaking of feeling bad, I have to go up state to my mom's cousin's funeral. He had two kids and a wife, but he drove very dangerously and finally luck ran out. It's not like I really lost someone important to me, but it's just sad that two kids have to grow up without a dad, and they're good kids too. He did teach me how to shoot a bow and arrow though. I think he was one of the more normal people that I am related to. It's weird cuz i'm not sure what tenses to use in my last sentence. I mean when someone is longer here, are they or were they? Anyway, it will be the first time I'm up there without Gram around too. Like it just hasn't sunk in that she's not going to be sitting on that old couch smoking a cigarette and drinking seven up. Anyway, like I said, it's not really painful, but it really sucks to see people hurt by crappy stuff.

I saw Timmay at Starbux with Cheex and Nick Donahue's sister of all people. Talked a lot about freshman year. It was a good time had by all.

I really have the best girl out there by my standards. I could not ask for a more understanding, caring, and attractive person. One day maybe I'll have the ability to show her how much she really means to me.

Dia de Madre
Yay Mom. Me being away from college only added a few white hairs to your head. I'm glad you didn't have any mental break downs, so good job. I ended up planting some petunias in our overrun garden. It's great cuz even if they die, I'm golden since I bought 72 flowers and only planted 20.

We had turkey and I was definitely lying passed out on my aunt's floor. Let's go for the highlights:
- My cousins are really really fun to be around. Makes me ALMOST wish I had sisters
- I actually eat LESS than everyone else when we have big family meals.
- They have this awesome game on PS2 where you just repetitively kill chinese warriors again and again.
- Climbing tress is still fun. (Question: Why is it that no matter how you test and yank on a branch in a tree, it will only break until after you put yourself in a very precarious position?)

So anyway, seeing the GF was awesome too. Baking cookies and talking was like the best 2 hours I spent with her since the first day back. Thanks.

Go Phillies, props to Mr. Lee going 4 for 4, and for all of you wondering my Weezer song, it was BUDDY HOLLY. Somehow that wasn't exactly what I would pick, but it's all in the eye of the beholder.

My brother had to write this paper on this book called, The Gospel According to the Son written from Christ's perspectiv. It was absolutely ridiculous. There are about 4 instances where the author blatantly changed facts in the Bible to make Jesus fit his own image plus dozens of weird and very stretched assumptions. I thought it was just....dumb.

Before I get off, I want to tell a little story about my dog:
Ok, you know when you see a dog running really fast like after a ball or something, and it looks really fast and graceful just barely touching the ground. Well, at my aunt's house I watched my dog run his fastest across the open acres they have...something he never gets to do near my house...and even his small and stubby legs could take him swiftly through the grass...

run bear...run...
you run your fastest....

and then it was like watching a sports blooper...something so unnatural and against convention...his left front leg couldn't reach the ground as he got slightly airborne going down a hill...so he followed through anyway and his shoulder smashed into the dirt sending him tumbling down the hill and destroying whatever dogliness he had...i'd liken it when a guy falls to the ground after getting scrotum-socked. i don't think i've ever seen a dog trip over itself.

don't worry, bear....i'm here for you

Where did my life go?
Good news and bad news:
Good: Today is the last day I will be addicted to Star Wars Pod Racer on N64.
Bad: Because I just spent an hour winning 1st place on the final 25th track, the culmination of my toils and troubles since being home.

I NEED a job...like I'm going CWAZY. When will Cocco's call me?

So what to get Momma Byrne for mother's day? I was thinking about redoing the garden out front of my house. It's been a few years since anyone has touched it. But how do I know which flowers will go with the bush out front? I feel it is time I've graduated from the Hallmark candles and decorations.

Hey, did anyone hear about the doctor guy found in the trunk of his car (he claims for three days)? Yeah he was clean shaven when they took him out, so the FBI is a little suspicious, he was supposed to be in court sometimes this week. Stupid doctors who think they're smart.

i just ate shrimpies
I just got back from my zero dollars job. It was cool though cuz I met more of these old heads who were like senior management at Boeing Helicopters. I had to bring out my knowledge of moment arms and such to explain a stupid paper falling to the ground. I still have a headache from that. I gots to watch Channel 10 too cuz their chopper10 flew by and got pictures of the little kids. Some guy will probably do something really dumb though like electrocuting himself and nearly die and make a big deal about it, and hence I will not be on the news. oh well. i heard this odd story on the radio...some guy played a "joke" on his wife and pretended to have a suicide scene in his home with a gun and fake blood and all when she came home. so seeing the gruesome scene she called 911. the cops came and found out that he was on a parole and that he wasn't allowed to own a gun. his mandatory sentence is 15 years. well...i think that's a funny joke..haha...crackhead.
So how much of a freak is mike byrne? well i tried to fall asleep last night by taking a common shape....say a heart...and describing it in geometric terms so that you can't construct anything but a heart.
example: two semicircles sharing an endpoint and all three endpoints are on a single line with both semicircles on one side of this imaginary line. two lines go from the non-shared endpoints across the imaginary line to a point on a line perpendicular to the imaginary line starting from the shared endpoint and they also share an endpoint...
so speaking of hearts....i haven't had my squeezing sensation in months. go me....maybe my body is finally getting used to zero physical activity. i really need to start running and pushing again if i want to be spiderman. anyway....dinner time is coming...i need to salivate by myself. peace out.

my first time
Well, I finally broke down and did the live journal thing. I'm goign to try to forget that I do have a small audience here when I write so that it comes out 100% raw. The reason I picked the BEAST as my icon is because well anyone who saw us standing next to each other would see the resemblance. He's good-looking, smart, witty, house-trained...I'm all you can ask for in a single body. Anyway, as for today...I have to get up in less than 7 hours (on my SUMMER VACATION) to hang out with my retired AF pilot buddies at the museum. I'll catch you later. Peace out.
