Well it is official, I am going to be going to (repetitive, I know, just making sure you are reading) my aunt’s wedding. So I will be making this as special as possible and not just because of the wedding. WordPress is telling me that this is the 1000th post (not sure if it is WordPress only posts or all of those and the imports, but who cares). I will be covering the three days I will be there and if possible (well, you’ll know if I did it or not) a special video! Yep, so buckle up and hang on. I’m taking this motherfucker into overdrive.

I woke up and played some Battlefield 1942 after trying to stay awake to watch this thing on the History Channel about oil but I was too damn sleepy. I headed off to school for my computer science class. I swear, the people in the class are fucking retarded and shouldn’t be allowed to take the class. “What is the chip?” “How do I copy this file?” “How do I print?” FOR FUCK SAKES, GET OUT OF THE CLASS! I seriously hope the higher classes have less dumb fucks. During the break I went to the math lab and helped out Sable. Then we headed to class where I slept through another lecture. The teacher is like a fucking drone. Talking in monotone on and on and on. Fuck me. Once school was out I headed home and played some more ’42, then I jacked my brother’s Battlefield 2 and installed it.

Yep, shit gonna be shot real good.

The last few days have been a bit odd. It kind of fits I guess since my vacation is coming to an end. Since the 360 is broken and shipped off I have mainly been on the PC doing all kinds of things.

Friday I woke up and wasted as much time as possible so Cloverfield would come faster. At about 10:15am I headed out to the theater to meet up with Andrew. We were going to the 11am showing (first of the day) to beat the crowds, mainly high school kids who all had finals which meant they would be getting our around 12 and 1pm. When I got there there were only a few cars in the parking lot. I waited for Andrew to show up and then we went in and got seats in the back row. While we were waiting we talked about Call of Duty 4. Once the previews started the first one reminded me of Hellboy. I turned to Andrew and told him that the second one was coming out later this year. I turned back to the screen and then saw Hellboy on the screen and was like “motherfucker.” It was the Hellboy 2 trailer. During the second trailer, for the movie 21, I chomped down on a gummy worm and chipped a tiny piece of my front right tooth. Nothing major but it still pissed me off. I plan to have the dentist check it out when I go the next time (whenever that is). Moving back to the movie, it was awesome. Plain and simple on of the coolest and creative movies I have seen. From start to finish it kept me engaged. Andrew seemed to get freaked at some parts with his “Holy shit” and “What the fuck” moments. I just laughed in my head. After the movie I headed home and dicked around on the computer. UPS dropped off the coffin for the Xbox 360 so I packed it up and dropped it off at the UPS store were the truck came just as I was leaving. I went home and then watched Stargate Atlantis.

I woke up Saturday morning around the same time as the day before. This time I was taking my brother to see Cloverfield. We headed over again, beating the crowds. Same trailers, same seats. My brother was a little less dramatic as Andrew but it was close. During the movie he told me that I can die in a fire and that he plans to get the DVD. I told him that we’ll see about it. After the movie I got home to an empty house. The parents were out and about and a little later my brother headed off to a friends house. I proceeded to do the usual internet things when I got a message from a Shacker to play Team Fortress 2. I never played it online before so I was a bit hesitant. I got the server info and jumped in. I chose the Pyro first to give it a shot. Turns out I suck with that class so I went Soldier. I got some good kills and the class seems to work with me. I got better as the day progressed and I made sure to tell Tammi that if I get obsessed with it she has to either beat me senseless or kill me. I do not want to get sucked in a game with school around the corner. After a few hours of that I IMed for the rest of the night.

This morning I fired up Team Fortress 2 and played a few rounds. Once I was done with that I watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Around 3:30pm I headed downstairs to watch the NFC Championship game. I was rooting for the Packers but the stupid Giants kicker saved his career in overtime. Fucker. After the game I reinstalled Oblivion but left out the mods this time (at least until I find a good, stable one so I don’t have to do my multi-disk reinstall being as I don’t have the one DVD GOTY pack). Now I’m just IMing and Shacking.

Tomorrow is my last day of vacation, sadly. I will be preparing for school (mainly English since it will be the only class I go to on Tuesday). Got to pack the car with my books, prepare binders, and get the parking pass in the glove box. I’ll probably also be playing Oblivion and Team Fortress 2. Other than that I don’t know. Got to return to the mindset of school so I don’t fall asleep in class like last semester. Like that will work.

2007 was a crazy year. Many things have happened and each moment had some form of meaning. From the surprises to the failures, it has been one hell of a year. So many new things in what seemed as such little time. Transitioning from a high school student to an adult in college. With so many things it is hard to choose a single place to begin, so lets look back and remember the past year.

Note: It is not my intention to offend anyone. I am just giving the details of events from my point of view or from what I remember.

For whatever reason, ever since I have started watching Arrested Development I’ve started to notice that my life is somewhat of a comedy. These last two days have added to that theory quite well.

Yesterday I woke up knowing the day would suck. As with all holidays I would either get the choice of being with family or staying home alone. I had my mind on staying home alone for most of the day while I split my time playing Mass Effect or watching Arrested Development. Since I was already home alone I got a feel for what the rest of my day would be like. After a conversation with Tammi I decided to drag my ass over (this being after an hour long nap). I cleaned myself up and headed over. My mom, dad, grandmother, and brother were already settled and enjoying the spirit of Christmas. I got in and threw my shoes off. My mom commented about me being rude or something but I just continued on and laid back on a couch in a dark room (ironic, isn’t it?) and whipped out the laptop. Threw in AD and watched it for quite a bit. Then my dad came looking for me to tell me it was dinner time. I quickly pick myself up and head it so I could be the first out. I gathered the food that I wanted and at the same time pissed off my mom and made her comment about how I am always grumpy during the holidays (you don’t say). After ravaging the plate I headed back to continue watching. Then it was dessert. I ended up with apple and key lime pies with vanilla ice cream. Post pie time some family friends came and said hi. Minutes later I decided to head home. I told me mom and she said fine. Then my dad spoke up about I was going home because I was being anti-social. Then someone commented asking me if I was tired. My dad spoke again and said that I was going to go home and talk to Ashlee all night long. Ugh. Ok, I know a girl, thanks dad. Anyway I headed home and talked to Ashlee until about 10:30pm when she went to bed as well as myself.

I woke up at about 7am and decided to go to Best Buy to pick up Arrested Development season 3 since I got a Best Buy gift card for the same price as the DVD. I headed to my parents room and told my mom I was going and she told me “whatever” in that half-asleep tone. When I got there I had about fifteen minutes until it would open so I waited in the car listening to my iPod. While waiting a glanced at my side mirrors to notice a familiar blonde. Was it? Could it be? No way. Yes, it was indeed “B,” dressed in Best Buy work attire. She also carried the familiar Beatles handbag. I did a double take look at the mirror just to be sure. When the store opened I quickly scooped up the DVD and looked around curious as to where “B” was stationed on this day after Christmas shopping day. As I walked over towards customer service I noticed the rope for the lines that were expected (I was also have blinded by the sun as their front windows face south, morons). Then I saw the hair again. The poor thing. She was working the customer service line. Being the sly son of a bitch I am I walked around trying to get a glance just for the hell of it, but alas, none such happened. I gave up my perilous adventure and checked out. I went back home and continued my ME/AD combo of doom. Around noon Tammi and Carter arrived as they were taking me out to lunch for my *read below*. I invited Andrew along since he had yet to meet them in person. I drove us all down to the Mongolian BBQ in Fairfield and wrapped up a comedic journey with all sorts of driving fun. Lunch was full of jokes and little giggles like usual Tammi/Carter meals. We also messaged Ashlee during the time. After lunch we headed back and after dropping off Andrew the three of us talked before they headed home. Then it was back to the same routine. At about 6pm we again went to the borrowed friend’s house to have dinner. Now I’m back home with the Bako crew on webcam.

Oh yeah, I’m older today. Whoo.

Well, it is the night before Christmas. The neighbors are being dicks playing loud music and yelling like idiots, the wind is howling, the air is cold and brisk, and I am preparing myself for another crappy Christmas.¬† Why is it going to be crappy? I’ll tell you.

Tomorrow my dad, brother, and myself will be staying home until 5pm while my mom is going to my friend’s house (which we are using since they are out of town and are letting us use it) with my grandmother to prepare dinner. Dinner will beat 6pm and then we will all be going back home by 10pm so my dad can work the next day. The only other person who will be there¬† my brother’s friend. To top it off I will only be getting my Christmas present from my grandmother as I got the laptop from my parents and my other family members have yet to send me anything. That’s why it is going to suck. I’ll probably just do a massive Mass Effect session before going over to pass time and then chat with Ashlee and Tammi on the laptop while suffering the holiday dread. Sounds like a plan.

Fuck holidays.
