I have pooped 87 times this summer. My proudest day was August 4, when, at 5:46 AM PST, I squeezed out the most majestically formed turd. It was seven inches long, three inches in diameter (perfectly rounded), with this beautiful striped effect that resembled a Caramello bar. It was the headline in the local paper the next day, and made grown men cry.

Why waste words? If you're able to be concise and do it in less, why not? It sucked.

I'm going to just admit to breaking the rules and give up now.

Ambulances aren't free, as we learned
Golf carts CAN be fun if they are irresponsibly modified
Cat bites can totally kill you right quick
Balls Deep is a nice place to visit

Fourteen weeks of summer vacation is, indeed, too much.
Some people are easily confused by pens taped to spoons.
Nebraska, Minnesota, and California are all still fine.
Denver is better than Boulder, but women are still confusing everywhere.

I traveled out West, and traversed mountains only finding out that I hate them.
I procrastinate too much, but just wait, I'll change.
The weather reminded me of Dagobah, not the inspiring part where Yoda lifts the X-wing fighter.
Oh, and free outdoor concerts are usually free for a reason.

Perth was pretty fun.

Singapore was alright but I didn't get a hotel.

The Philippines stunk like the third world country that it is.

Cruise is done.

We sold the townhouse (and then went back to work)

Due to wonderful foresight to rival Yoda, our school distrcit felt that starting school on August 10 so that we could end the semester with Winter (a.k.a. Christmas) Break, but meaning that we'd be in classroom while the temps outside are among the hottest of the year, would be great, my summer, along with the other members of our staffs, was brief; this cut into my annual try-to-read-30+-books routine and made coming back from my first out-of-state vacation in years a little more tiring.

That very same vacation was a drive out to Williams AZ to head to the Grand Canyon (my second time there, but the first time for my mom and uncle) where I got to see a wonderful sunrise from the rim and almost get run down by elk (or deer; I wasn't entirely sure at the time); by unintentionally scheduling the trip during Arid-zone-a's monsoon time meant less dry heat and more humidity, so that the hottest day was on the drive back home (topped out at 116 :eek: ).

I finally moved up in the electronic world by getting DSL instead of dial-up Internet access, yet this transition was poor and inefficient at best since it occurred during the vacation period and the age of the house, distance from their system, and various mechanical issues made it quite frustrating and strung out, even though the monthly fees and extras (laptop included, as well as combining telephone and cable [Direct TV, with DVR functions] into one "easy" payment); however, still no cell phone, as that remains on my list (LISTS... :drool: ) as a bane on society and will most likely lead to the downfall of human civilization, or something slightly worst than that.

And, it is long gone in time now, but not temperature.

Spent a few days in Vegas and watched UFC 98 from the press room, then got to go octagon-side to photograph Matt's fight (see attachment).

Moved into a new house which is going to save me about $200 a month in rent.

My brother left for Iraq and will be gone for a full year.

Learned how to drive a John Deere 70 "putt-putt" tractor and spent a couple of weeks raking and baling hay.

My son graduated from High School!

Had a nice four day vacation with my wife!

Discovered a social network called "Facebook" perhaps you heard of it?

Going North next weekend to help my dad have a rememberance of my step mom, his wife of 31 years.

Finished my schooling for my Master's Enhanced (that's what our district calls it, 30 hours above your Master's) so I'm done learning.

I said last year's summer was Dagobah, while this year's was more like Tatooine.

I unexpectedly went to Colorado again.

I'm hoping mother nature could squeeze in an Indian Summer because I know what lays waiting two months or so from now.

I can sum it up in 2 words.

Road Trip!:thumbsup:

Swelting heat left me inside, for the most part.
Yet, suffered through it to build a huge custom shelf.
Sister visited after two years waiting, shame we're so far apart.
We met our Uncle, the brother of our Mom & Aunt; he had been separated from the family since before they were even belf - err, born.

09-06-2010, 08:42 PM
Finished my Master's degree.
Bought an AT-AT.
Played with the kids. :D
Tried to find ways of financing a PhD.

10 year relationship ends abruptly, so not the best start.
In an effort to remain sane, I took a trip to Nova Scotia (30 hour bus ride ) to stay with a buddy I had not seen for over 15 years, and it was a fun two and a half weeks.
Weird stuff happened once I got home, and I ended up leaving a week later and coming (going?) to another town.
Let's just say it was the most $#@&ed up summer I have ever experienced.

My summer sucked.
First one without a vacation.
Record temps for a summer yet the lawn still grew.
Only golfed twice.

I have pooped 87 times this summer. My proudest day was August 4, when, at 5:46 AM PST, I squeezed out the most majestically formed turd. It was seven inches long, three inches in diameter (perfectly rounded), with this beautiful striped effect that resembled a Caramello bar.

Yeah, but how many Kurics?

Welcomed home a new baby.

Went to Seattle for work and Montreal for fun.

Sweated a lot and saw all my new grass die.

Got an addition and a deck put on the house.

Busy busy busy,

busy busy busy busy.

Kids back to school. "Visited" with the wife at lunchtime today. :whip:

- My wife lost her job, but spent the summer working on her tan.
- Business picked up, so life is still very comfortable for us, even on one salary.
- Spent some money on myself and my wife having fun.
- Smoked more than a few cigars in the backyard.

Got to take a couple great vacations (FL for SW Weekends, which was a plan for much of the last decade, it seemed; some day trips around SoCal).

Got to read 30 books once again (with the 26 letters/26 authors aspect first), but did almost no writing. :(

Got to relax for a change, with very few work-related issues apparent, and even did a little exercising.

Got to have a fourth line to complete the thread title.

09-08-2010, 07:51 PM
-Worked, dealt with the weirdest and stupidest customers this year(..sigh..)
-Sent to "Rookie Camp" after 2.5 years on the job,basically told we were stupid.
-Applied to University of Iowa, got accepted. Hooray.
-Went to my first Con ever in all my years of geekdom.

Decided to make a living at being a full time musician (lead guitar) so far so good. Playing a lot of casinos, Indian folk got lots to pay bands.

Can't find work in my field of expertise (auto refinisher) don't know if I want to anymore anyways. I'm a 99'er. Surviving only on my wits.

Sold off all my 12" Star Wars Sideshow and Hasbro (except for Maul) and 12" military vehicles (big bucks) and figures.

Still collect Star Wars figures, but it's been really dry on the pegs this summer.

Been nice and hot in the Northeast this summer.
Vacation's a plenty so far, New Hampshire, Tennessee, and the Adirondack Mtns.
Stupid Vintage packaging is making me want to buy the new vehicles.
Got a nice tan so far too! :encouragement:

Final day (although, I don't officially start teaching until Tuesday; meetings tomorrow) of summer. Four lines to follow:

Read a lot, and won some prizes from the library's adult summer reading program.
Worried about the state of the economy, environment, education, myself, legal system, sports teams, etc.
Visited a few people I hadn't seen in a while, out of state and around the area.
Still hoping to plan a Pittsburgh Pirates World Series party! :thumbsup: :crazed: :Pirate: Arr!

08-08-2011, 01:30 PM
It was hot!
I am broke!
Nothing goes right with technology!
I really enjoyed the improv writing assignments!

Still a weekend left to my summer, but...

Alaska is awesome in the summer.
I still love reading books and wish I could fit it more into my work schedule.
The Pirates are winning; the :Pirate:s are winning!
Did I mention how great the state of Alaska is during the summertim,e if you take a land trip and cruise there, plus a couple days in Vancouver?
