Security Apparently Arnold is so confident that he'll win the upcoming election that he took time off from his campaign yesterday to model clothes for JC Penny: PS: I'm saddened to note that this whole Cal beating USC in football thing has overshadowed the game of basketball my roommates and I played in the gym. I'd like it noted that while my team lost the first game, I was the leading scorer. And I'd also like it noted that in the second game, I had the game-winning shot and shot a three-pointer while being closely guarded by my roommate. He maintains it was luck that the shot went in; I maintain it was skill.

He's coming. The following link is not safe for children and should not be played at work (unless you have headphones): Arnold Speaks (requires Quicktime). The start is just disgusting, but when you reach the end, it's hilarious.

Introducting Wesley Clark with super Kung-Fu grip action! I have to say, I have no idea what to make of Wesley Clark. The huge boost of momentum he brought with his announcement totally caught me by surprise, and for a moment I almost said, is this somebody I can actually go out and start supporting? But then I realized, I have no fucking clue who this guy is. I'm familiar with his work in Kosovo. I hear that he's only been an announced democrat for a shortwhile and voted Republican most of his life. I also hear that he's not very well known by the public. So I wonder to myself, how the hell did he shoot up in the polls like this if everyone in those polls says they have no idea who he is? He seems like an interesting and viable candidate, even if there are rumors of Perot like statements (Bush conspired with the squirrels to ruin my job at CNN). But I have to wonder if maybe he's been able to amass this much popularity this quickly simply because he waited so long to join the race. All the current primary candidates have been running for a year or more. I'm not one of those who thinks this is a terrible crop of candidates, but I think that in a political system where people don't even wait until the convention to reveal their running-mate anymore, even a mild surprise like the General suddenly entering the race seems fresh. I have my doubts as to whether this momentum will go anywhere though because part of the allure of Clark is that no one knows what he stands for.

Racquet Balls of Fire My posse and I went to the gym yesterday. The basketball courts were all taken, but the racquetball courts were open. Now only one of us knew how to play racquetball, and frankly, he was pretty sketchy on the rules. So we devised our own version called 4-person racquetball that works in a HORSE fashion (everytime you miss a shot you get a letter until eventually THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!). It didn't work too well; we've decided not to get too caught up with arguing over who hit who in the face with a racket or who hit who in the face with a racquetball and we will now stick to 2-person racquetball.

A quick story The Problem: I have an Astronomy quiz in 20 minutes and need to study, BUT I really need to use the bathroom. The Solution: Study in the public bathroom. The Result: I dropped my Astronomy book in the toilet. I'd like to think that I teach by example.

Shock of shocks Showtime has ordered a 15 episode second season of Dead Like Me. I'm two episodes behind in the show but I've got them on my computer and ready to watch. I'm quite pleased by this, but I must remember that Showtime ordered a new season of Jeremiah like a year and a half ago and it still won't be on the air until October.

Breaking News! J.Lo and Ben have broken up! Today was to be their wedding day, but alas, the greatest hollywood couple since Darva Conger and Rick Rockwell is no more! I will stick with this story all through the night, neglecting my studies if need be. Also, in remembrance of this horrible event, I'm temporarily changing the site's color scheme to black.

Obladi, Oblada: Or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb Since I've been listening to countless beatle albums, I started reading the backgrounds of each album and song online. It's interesting to note that the background of almost every song seems to involve some sort of intra-band struggle or John being lazy. Even "Obladi, Oblada" which I've taken as a sort of personal anthem (I'm trying my damndest to be the only truly relaxed jew on earth and a song that goes "Life goes on" fits in well with this plan) has a sordid background story. PS: Did you know that Desmond and Mollie Jones have a barrow in the marketplace? I suspect that they're selling narcotics (what else is profitable enough to raise a family on but doesn't involve an actual storefront?). This causes the lyric "Molly lets the children lend a hand" to gain a rather sinister ring, what with Desmond and Mollie's drug dealings?

My 40 (errr, 3) Theses Consider this the beginning of a new religion. A religion centered entirely around my new chair: You may wonder why I added a lens flare to a picture of my chair and why I added crazy filters to the background. That is because this is more than a chair. This is "The Venture." An "oversize executive chair" built by skilled craftsmen (read: factory-workers) in China. I bought it for 40 dollars from Office Depot (with free shipping) to replace the pathetic excuse for a chair that formerly inhabited my dorm room. With my new chair I truly feel like an executive. I am now as far beyond my fellow (if such a word can still be used) college roommates as they are above insects. From my genuine leather perch on my tilt-adjustable-and-lockable base I sneer at them. It's said that all new religions start with a great revelation and hard work, and mine came when I built the chair piece by piece and then finally found the instruction manual while cleaning up. Clearly some greater power guided me as I built the chair with nothing but the sweat on my brow and that little all-purpose screw driver tool to help me. Now if you'll excuse me, I must sit in my chair, which I really like by the way. PS: Forgive me if I forget any of your names. I remember so little of life Before the Chair (or B.C. time as I now refer to it).

One thing that sucks... ...about college: You have to do your own laundry. I'm too hip and happening a guy to fritter my time away doing laundry! I've got places to be and girls to be turned down by! PS: I brought my laptop to polisci class today and it was heaven. The notes were easy to take and I was able to browse the web on the wireless network everytime the professor went off on one of his long and impossible to remember anecdotes. I still will only use my laptop for that class because it just would be too much of a hassle in Astro 10 or History 5.

He's not a bad actor, he's a pirate! I went to the movies last night and finally saw Pirates of the Carribean which was a great deal of fun. It did have one of the stupidest lines ever written though towards the end. I went to what was technically a very good football game today, even if Cal did lose. I tried to move my sleeves up so that my horribly uneven tan line would gain more of a gradual shift toward my pasty white back-side. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, my tanned parts got tanner and my white parts got pastier. Tonight is Texas Hold'em Poker night, so I will be putting off my history homework until tommorow. Sorry for the lack of substance in this post, but I'm not a blogger, I'm a pirate!

Turns out I do like music Well, not like like music. But I've found my headphones and Windows Media Player supremely useful for keeping my brain from exploding whenever I have to read 50 pages about the definition of a "political system." Anyway, right now I'm going through 23 beatles albums one at a time. Unfortunately none of the songs are labeled so I'm not learning the names of the songs. Oh well. Back to my non-threatening music. PS: I've become the floor school marm. I'm repulsed by the lack of work-ethic found in today's college student and I've had to reprimand several people harshly for failing to meet school deadlines. I've also threatened to call their parents if they don't stop all this dilly-dallying. Once I finish three math problems tonight, I'll be done with my work for the week.
