Halo 2

January 26, 2007

Before Halo 2, I was the serious gamer type.  You know the type, the guy that has every good video game that has ever been released from every good video game console.  That guy was me.

I played anything from Tekken to Zelda and was never content with just one game.  I was always struggling to find another game to beat; a more realistic physics engine; and a more intriguing puzzle.  That is, a few new found friends introduced me to Halo 2.  A first-person shooter game, set in the distant future that just screams out multi-player parties. We continued to play Halo 2 individually and in small and large groups for months and months after my introduction into the game.

I was the first to get an X-Box Live Account because i had heard that you were able to get on and play with 1-15 more players at any time and that opportunity was too tempting to pass up.  Once i got my Live Account I played almost every hour of the day that i was not at work or with friends (and even then we were playing most of the time).  My levels steadily rose higher, as I got better and better and eventually my skills had surpassed everyone else that i played with locally.

So, wanting more and more competition, I did everything in my power to get my friends each an X-Box Live Account so that they could experience the wonders of the Halo 2 community.  It started with Lee, and moved on to Bruce a month later; then another month went buy and Josh calls; and then Danny; and eventually we all had this wonderful little world that we could run and jump and shoot and talk to each other inside of.

Hallucinations on the Way Back Home

January 26, 2007

On our way home i realize i have not had but 12 hours of sleep in the past 90+ hours.

I came to this realization when i thought i was watching the road and driving nicely and then i woke up to the screeching once again.

Shortly after i begin to hallucinate…

I saw bridges,

and giant toll booths,

and anime bicycles,

and faces on the windsheild,

I must say it was quite the six hour trip home.

But to finish the trip i was locked out of my own home and while wondering around the house looking for an open window i saw the weirdest hallucination of all:
duplicates of one of my neighbors cars, and some guy was breaking into one of the two cars but he couldnt get it to unlock using something like a coat hanger i assume(its my hallucination, i can assume all i want and all i could do was stare in fascination because for a good 10 minutes i couldnt figure out if it was just some dumb fuck that didnt see me or if i was hallucinating yet again.

Finally, I decided to turn around and then back again to see if he was still there doing the same thing.
So i did.
hallucination
yep
it was amazingly vivid

So I am legally insane seeing as I have now hallucinated without the help of forces outside my own mind/body.

Lol
but you look like a mother fucker with down syndrome.
You are a confident ugly mother fucker for thinking that my beautiful girlfriend likes your sorry ass. I think your hilarious and thats why youre my friend, and to think that I was frustrated at you over at daves is the funniest shit i’ve ever heard. Infact shes pissed at the fact that theres a rumor going around about YOU liking her going around, and I am too, because its degrading to think that you think you have a chance with her. HIV infected motherfucker…you aren’t wanted. No one wants to see your sorry bald ass on campus anymore. I simply picked the most sorry mother fucker i could make fun of and went with it. Your pathetic.
Go fuck a RHINO god.

Crazy Road Trip

November 30, 2006

So…
Lee and I decide to head out on a road trip to Knoxville, TN in an attempt to get rid of a few valuables we had around the house.

We ride for what seems to be an endless amount of hours and i begin to fall asleep at the wheel.

Every time i do this particular thing a certain number of things are set into event:

1. My tires will begin to screech horribly as i run into the grating on the side of the highway.

2. Lee will scream profusely.

3. And I will awake and pull us gently toward the road

This must have happened 8 times before reaching Knoxville.

Once we finally reached Knoxville and Kingston Road we began our search for a specific store.

After giving up on searching on our own upon this endless road we decided to ask for directions from a local gas attendant.

The bitch didnt know what street we were on much less how to work her brain hard enough to direct us to the store.

Next, we stop at the most uppity market i have ever seen and begin to ask employees where this store might be located.

Not but one said he knew and once i recieved the directions we once again headed out for the store.

Going the direction he said, we travelled and travelled and travelled and never ran across one ryans or backyard burger, which were the only 2 landmarks he described in the process of his confused directions.

As we continued in the direction in which he pointed i spotted it(no where close to ryans or backyard burgers and on the opposite side of where the kid said).
The store.
That wonderful source of money.
Was finally in front of us.

Long story short(at least concerning this store) the guy said he could not buy anything from us and that he couldnt let us get on the internet to find another local store to sell to.

By that time all the local stores were closed for the day and we were stuck in Knoxville for the night because we could not afford gas to get home, seeing as we were completely dependant on recieving money from the fore-mentioned store.

So we headed towards the mall to do a little bit of reconnaissance, while attempting to sell our valuables for at least a little gas money.

As we ran around asking random fucks if they would like our valuables we eventually got turned around and lost our car.

It took us a little over thirty minutes to find it and then, making another long story short, we ended up at wal mart ready to give up for the night and start over in the morning.

Then we gave a parker a call.

Parker lets us know that we may just have enough gas money to get to Berea from Knoxville and told us that if we came and partied for the night that he would lend us the gas money to get home so thats a win/win/win/win/win/win deal right?
Hell yeah.

So our crazy asses headed up for motherfucking KY.

Eventually getting there we drank our sorrows away and comforted ourselves even a bit more with some trusty mortar and pestle products.

Then we awoke early in the morning(10am) and headed for Lexington for one last chance to sell our valuables.

This store, as well, turns down our wondrous offer.

FUCK!!!!!

Right?

So we are thinking that we could at least get…

salvia while we were already in lexington right?

yes

we could

but no

we couldnt

The head shops had none for sale or they just straight up would not sell it to me because they require you to be of the age 21.

More shortness>>>headed back to berea>>>hung out with friends
