I popped a ball... (Week 4, Day 1)

Tried to think about running yesterday, but I have little motivation and my heel kind of hurt a bit. I need to start though. If I don't start soon, someone reprimand me por favor. If not that's cool too, I'm not sure how many of you sweet kids that read this actually read these 'workout reports.
The workout for today is:
Set 1 : 21
Set 2 : 25
Set 3 : 21
Set 4 : 21
Set 5 : Max (at least 32)
60 seconds between sets today.
I was supposed to close out the out work today with a 32 on the last set, but that didn't happen. I secretly knew it wasn't going to happen by the third set, because I was having a lot of difficulties with it by that time. I guess I did 112 before my arms gave out and I had to take a 5 second rest before finishing. If I have a lot of trouble with the next two days then It's going to be a lot more fun when I have to repeat week 4.

Re-did the workout for Week 3 Day 2 today. I know it's not technically Wednesday anymore, but if you don't say anything, I won't say anything.

Monday, November 16, 2009


Re-did week 3 day 1 today. Trying to get back on track. Hopefully, I can do this and start running on Sunday. Need to get back in shape for myself.

I realize that I'm not perfect for everyone.
I might not be perfect for anyone.
I may have lost my chance.
But, I will always keep on fighting.

Christmas List(Revolutions)

This is what I want.

Christmas List

1. Bike
2. Umbrella
3. A Sweet Light Up Eagle (glow-in-the-dark also acceptable)
4. Nice Headphones
5. A Suit
6. Another Suit
7. A Sweet Crown

First off, I would like to be able to "suit up" on a regular basis. This just seems like a really good idea.
I have always wanted a crown. Mostly because they are really cool.

Monday, November 2, 2009


Sweet kitty. Wish you were gonna be there when I came back. Hope all is well and that it is not too cold out for you tonight. Find the warmth, I worry about you. I trust you will be taken care of. Sleep well, Nostradamus.

I popped a ball... (Week 3, Day 1)

Yesterday, I did push ups until exhaustion and I went until I did 30 push ups, which isn't too terribly bad. I also wasn't too mentally prepared for it which may have affected me. I needed to do that to get re calibrated into the system for week 3. I also decided that next week I am going to start running on days that I don't do any push ups. Hopefully I will start to become healthier and healthier. And, I'm probably not going to drink in any kind of excess from now until my birthday or so. I'm excited to feel better. Also, I'm still in column three for the next set of workouts.
The workout for today is:
Set 1 : 14
Set 2 : 18
Set 3 : 14
Set 4 : 14
Set 5 : Max (at least 20)
60 seconds between sets today.
The sixty seconds between sets is really the hardest thing to do for me. I was only able to do 12 on the last one. I did finish after though. I know I'll do better next time so I'm not too worried about it. Bummer though. I still am feeling pretty awesome.

I popped a ball... (Week 2, Day 3)

So I went rock climbing with Danny Oats on Wednesday, and now my arms hurt and stuff. It's mostly my forearms but who knows. I feel like the workout today is going to be really good and that I am going to literally and figuratively kill it today, brah. I've had a pretty decent last couple of days in general. I do wish it was cold again. I know it's supposed to get kind of chilly on tomorrow but not too chilly. It might be perfect out, who knows. Also, Happy Birthday to Zach tomorrow!
The workout for today is:
Set 1 : 16
Set 2 : 17
Set 3 : 14
Set 4 : 14
Set 5 : Max (at least 20)
I'm starting to think that the extra rest really does help. I did 25 at the end today and it was tough. There was no way at the beginning of the work out I thought I would be able to do 25 push ups at the end. I think that's the awesome in me though. I rocked it and I 'm ready for the exhaustion exercise tomorrow to gauge progress and put me in the right section from here on out. AoAIA meter is definitely going up today. Wooh.

I popped a ball... (Week 2, Day 2)

The workout on Monday was tough, and it appears like tonight's workout is going to be even tougher. I am looking forward to it though. 71 push ups total at least. I feel like I probably have it under control though. Might also go rock climbing after with Danny Oats. Here we go...
The workout for today is:
Set 1 : 14
Set 2 : 16
Set 3 : 12
Set 4 : 12
Set 5 : Max (at least 17)
There is a 90 second rest between sets. We'll see how that affects the workout.
That was sooo hard. I finished everything but on the last on I had to break form and take a small break. I finished the last set but I can not rightfully say I maxed at 17. I have to say 13 because that is when the break came. I had my doubts about how easy this workout was going to be when the first set of 12 was pretty difficult.
My weight went up again but it's still not drastic enough for me to care.
AoAIA meter is going to go up but basically stay the same this week because there weren"t any big changes this week.

I popped a ball... (Week 2, Day 1)

Week 2 is here and I'm all ready to get started. No boring chit chat today.
The workout for today is:
Set 1 : 14
Set 2 : 14
Set 3 : 10
Set 4 : 10
Set 5 : Max (at least 15)
There is a 60 second rest between sets. We'll see how that affects the workout.
It was toughie today. I still feel good about it, despite only being able to do 15 at the end. It was definitely a chore towards the end. I did refine my push up form though and I feel like it was a better workout today and I will improve on it on Wednesday, hopefully. Other than that, weight went up by a pound, no big deal. Max at the end went down, probably because I am doing push ups correctly now. AoAIA meter went up also, because of my fan support.

I popped a ball... (Week 1, Day 3)

Push up time again and it feels good to keep this up consistently. Hopefully I will see improvements in my strength and body shape by the end of this. Also, I was thinking about why I was keeping track of these workouts online for everyone to see and I realized that if I were to do it this way I would be able to keep myself accountable. If this works I might start to keep track of other stuff on here, like running or schoolwork or something.
The workout for today is:
Set 1 : 11
Set 2 : 15
Set 3 : 9
Set 4 : 9
Set 5 : Max (at least 13)
There is a 120 second rest between sets. We'll see how that affects the workout.
With the two minutes rest periods there was very little exhaustion that I noticed during the workout. I am a little tired now but that is most likely because of the fifth set max that I did. It automatically takes a lot out of you to push yourself to the edge of what you can do, even at the end of a mediocre workout. Right now, I do feel my arms and shoulders trying to recover from the workout. I think that is a good sign. I did improve my max push ups at the end of the workout from a 16 to an 18, which is good steady improvement and I'm glad to see that happen.
My AoAIA meter is going from a 38 to a 42 today because the workout was pretty good today. Overall though, I'm in a pretty blah mood, so it's not going up too too much. I'm enjoying this right now and I hope the other things even out too.
Now I have two days of rest until my next workout. I'm excited for the beginning of week 2.

I popped a ball... (Week 1, Day 2)

It's push up time and I feel good. If the day to push was yesterday, I have to say that I would have struggled. My shoulders were killing me and I most likely would have struggled to complete the workout. Today is a new day and I'm ready to move on.
The workout for today is:
Set 1 : 10
Set 2 : 12
Set 3 : 8
Set 4 : 8
Set 5 : Max (at least 12)
There is a 90 second rest between sets. We'll see how that affects the workout.
I think the 90 second rest between sets helped a lot because I was definitely better rested for the later sets. I blew by the early sets but by set 4 I noticed I was catching my breathe during the resting period. Overall, I felt good today. I did 4 more than the minimum required push ups for the fifth set. Also, my weight basically stayed the same like it should. I'm only going to worry about consisted weight changes or drastic weight changes. Today was neither.
The AoAIA scale went up slightly today, from a 24 to a 38 because I felt good about my workout. It would have went up more but I hurt myself again scootering. This time it wasn't workout threatening but it still brings my awesomness down slightly. That is the risk/reward I deal with for living the life I do.

I popped a ball... (week 1, Day 1)

Week 1 starts today and man, am I pumped. I already weighed myself today and it appears that I have lost 3 pounds so far. It's most likely water weight or something because I have not done anything to really change that from two days ago.
Another thing to note is that I was scooting around the Brad about half an hour ago and I fell and maybe hurt my shoulder. This could be a problem because shoulders are a main part of doing push ups. It's really funny to me because I haven't even started doing anything yet and I am already building up my excuses. Boy am I good at doing that.
I'm going to get down to business now though. Because on Saturday I did 20 push ups I am working on column 3 of the work out. It looks something like this:
Set 1 : 10
Set 2 : 12
Set 3 : 7
Set 4 : 7
Set 5 : Max(at least 9)
Also, on the fist day, you take 60 second rests between sets. I'm going to do the work now and come back and write more about the work in a second.
It was definitely harder to do than I thought it would be. It's hard to stop yourself at 10 on the first try and start doing it again after resting for sixty seconds. Not impossible by any means, but I feel that I am definitely going to have to push myself harder than I thought I might have to to complete this workout plan. My shoulder also tightened up after the first set, which makes sense but I was not counting on. I hope it feels 100% tomorrow. I am intrigued to see what day 2 brings me on Wednesday.
My max on Set 5 was 10. I once again thought I was going to do better, but I do have my built in excuses. At least I beat the 9 that I had to do.
The AoAIA meter did go down from a 53 to a 24 which is not a good thing, but it is likely to go up in the near future. That is a good thing. It went down because I failed to meet personal expectations and I ate it on the scooter very soon before the workout today. It would of went lower, but I decided not to skip my workout today.
An interesting trend to look at is that all three of the statistics I decided to keep went down from Saturday until today. The weight went down from 185.5 to 182.5, the max push ups went from 20 to 10, and the AoAIA meter went from a 53 to a 24. If I had to make predictions for the rest of the workout, I would guess the weight would stay anywhere from 178.5 to 186.0 the entire workout. I would also guess the max push ups will steadily increase, and the AoAIA meter will fluctuate greatly thoughout this process.

I popped a ball...

I am in the worst shape of my life right now. I have trouble with finding motivation to go to the gym and work out. I recently weighed myself and I'm at a cool 185, which is the most I have ever weighed and is about 15 pounds heavier than I'd like to weigh. I also need to start eating better. My Dad has better cholesterol than me right now and I am pretty sure it won't bode well for me if I don't do something to attempt to change this for myself. I would love to magically find the motivation to go the gym but realistically that isn't going to happen.
I decided that push ups can be a useful tool for getting in shape because they are free and the can be done almost anywhere. After searching the web for a little while, I came across a workout called the 100 Push Up Challenge. It's a six week program and the goal is to be able to do 100 push ups in a row by the end of the six weeks. I figured that I can do this and keep everyone updated on how I'm doing and get in better shape all at the same time. Go me.
The first thing that has to be done is to evaluate how many push ups you can do in order to see how what track you are supposed to follow in order to get the most out of the program. There is a nifty little graph there that has this graph on it, plus other stuff, but this is the only part that involves me. My prediction is that I will be in Rank 3 but I could surprise myself.
<40 years old
0-5 - Rank 1
6-14 - Rank 2
15-29 - Rank 3
30-49 - Rank 4
50-99 - Rank 5
100-149 - Rank 6
150 & above - Rank 7
Looking at the program a little further and I'm not sure what the above chart has to do with the program because it says that if I can do more than 20 push ups in a row I should move directly to week 3. I'm kind of confused and it's really late so I'm going to wang it. Werd.
Just tested things out and I did 2o push ups in a row and it lowered my 'Amount of Awesome I am' scale from a 72 to 53. I thought I was going to do better than that I think mentally I stopped at 20 so I could start week 1. I was out of breath following my 20 push ups, which confirms the fact that I am terribly out of shape for right now. Six weeks from now I might be man-jacked though. Now I'm tired though, good night. First workout of week 1 is on Monday.
I know this sounds pretty douche-ish, but bear with me. Which reminds me: This is your What-A-Douche Moment and it has been brought to you by What-A-Burger.

Holiday Hair

Halloween is fast approaching. I'm not exactly sure what kind of Halloween costume I am going to be dressing up in, which means I have to be prepared for anything. Part of being prepared for me is not shaving my face or cutting my hair from now until the big day. Part of the reasoning behind this is that I can always lose the beard or the hair the day of, but if I end up needing one, I can't grow one in a day. It won't be too long though, because it'll be about a six weeker. Hopefully it turns out to be a good holiday.

Cool Pic

I really like this picture from my birthday last year.

I'm a rebel, or an outcast, or an outkast, or something.

Horatio Crunch

A.K.A. Captain Horatio Magellan Crunch

Better known as Cap'n Crunch

Sailed the seas(at least one of the seas were sailed, but he could have sailed any number of the seven)

His nemesis was Jean LaFoote, A.K.A. The Barefoot Pirate

Another enemy were The Crunchium Thieves, who were stealing Crunchium which is the main ingredient for the cereal that was named after the good captain

The mission was a success due to help from creatures from the underworld called 'The Crunchlings'

Thank God for The Crunchlings

God is doing interesting things in my life right now. I'm trying to do my best to let go and trust in Him even though I know it's not going to be the easiest choice or the easiest way to go about things. I know a lot of people go through times similar to the times I've been going through and will continue to be going through, but this is one of the first times that I know what I want to do is not what I need to do.

More Networking

I'm considering starting to twittering. I have denounced in the past but I have been going through some stuff that would make good tweets lately, like, 'I just helped my Mom drunk text my brother. She would have done it herself but she's not very good at texting.' and 'Just did manly work in my back yard with my Dad. Ripped sod right from the ground. AAARRGGGHH!!!' I think those are reasonable tweeters.

Poll of the day:
Should I join Twitter?

Good Day

Good day. I finally had some closure today. I'm still not thrilled about the situation but I had a fun 4th and now I know the feelings are not completely angry. Maybe I can work on having more fun and growing closer with God now. It's still always on my mind but maybe I'll go back to being closer to being me again.

By the way, what is the 4th of July without having some kind of burn on your hand?

Sometimes when I work at Target, they make go out into the parking lot and collect shopping carts until the store closes. When they do this they give me a walkie-talkie (sweet) and a really cool beat-up reflective vest (so indie). Then they refer to me a the Cart Attendant. When they do this, it gives me a lot of time to evaluate my life to this point, but mostly to sing the same lyric that is stuck in my head over and over again. During this time, I have decided that I no longer want to be called a cart attendant. I would prefer to be called a Cart Wrangler. You see, carts are like cows. Actually they are not. But I still collect them and put them back in the places.

I am in this sweet new band called One A.M. It's named after a film in 1972, that was never actually released. All of the band members thought that we related very well to the film, so that became our name. Our debut album is called, form could have invented the Nobel Prize. It's very cool.

I went on a boat this morning, and I only my one Andy Samberg reference the entire day.(My parents didn't get it.) So, on this said boat, I took my shirt off and my aunt made a comment that I was very white.
I haven't been outside in a while.
Well, I have but I usually keep my shirt on. This reminded me of something somebody once said about me that is probably my favorite thing anyone has ever said about me.
"David always takes his shirt off and he has no personality."
or it was
"David has no personality and he always takes his shirt off."
Well, apparently that's not the case anymore.
Because I am pale.

It's cool though.

It wont drip but it will still probably get all warm and nasty though, right?

Coldstone is working on an ice cream that doesn't melt.

When I saw that, it blew my socks off.

Instead of melting, the ice cream turns into pudding. This is a good thing, except for those individuals among us who don't like pudding. So, the ice cream doesn't melt, it just becomes a different form. This seems so strange to me. Why hadn't someone thought of this before.

I wonder what happens when we leave pudding out in the freezer?

Here's a link to the page i saw it on.

Bye, Bye.

You know what would be crazy?

It would be crazy if you were driving your Chevy all of the way to the levee, but when you got there you realized that the entire levee was dry, thus, making your entire trip not worth the drive. It's not like you live too close to the levee either.

But then, you happen to come upon approximately three 'good old boys' drinking rye whiskey.

And then you saw Jason Biggs trying to have sex with a pie. Your mind would most likely be blown.

Just sayin'.

Never have I ever. Never have I ever been told to get rid of my sideburns. Sure, I've been told to "shave that beard off" when I had one. Sure, I've been told "cut that mop off of your head". But, nobody has ever touched the burns, verbally or with one of their hair cutting devices, until a few days ago. It's not like they're huge muttonchops or anything.

And I'm not going to. I was just semi-shocked that I was criticized about this. I mean, they perfectly frame my face. I am nothing without a little hair in front of my ear. Cut those and I am nothing but hair on top of my head and that would be a little unreasonable to ask of somebody, wouldn't it?

I've always been a fan of the thinking that hair grows back. Because most of the time it does. And then, when the hair stops growing back, it's out of your control anyway. For these reasons, hair isn't a big deal for me. Why would it be a big deal for you, Target lady I work with? But, just let me be me, because it doesn't really affect you anyways.

I just drove through a lightening storm and it was was of the most beautiful experiences I have ever been apart of.
This is one of the things I love about SoFla. You don't really get that anywhere else.
There was no rain and barely any wind. I was engulfed in a different flash of lightening every three seconds.
It has since calmed down, but it was still AMAZING.

Addendum 27.083093 Section 3

In regards to my last post.

"Under no circumstances is anyone to give himself a nickname."
Although, it can be kind of funny/hilarious to watch someone try.

j. B.S.

I titled this blog post jBS because I think it's funny, and because I'm sure nobody has thought of this before.

It's actually nothing bad about JBS or anything. I was just thinking about it because I've noticed some people call Jordan 'JBS' because of her initials and nobody calls Danny 'DPH' because of his initials. I mean, they both have the hyphenated name thing going so why not.

Is it because Danny is spanish, because that's racism(sexism?).

Then I realized that I lied to all of you guys. I know why it's JBS and it's not DPH. It's because people like nicknames. Nicknames are comforting and make people feel apart of the group. Unless they are bad nicknames, then they feel ostracized.

I've done a lot of thinking about nicknames in my day, and I feel nicknames are a very interesting part of society. There are two things that have to happen, and a couple of other things that help, for a nickname to flourish.

One thing that has to happen is that the nickname has to be catchy, to stick. Or sticky, to catch. It has to be something that people will remember to call that chosen person.

It also has to be short. There are only a couple of instances that I can recall where I remember a nickname sticking that was longer than maybe three syllables. The actual name might be longer, but the long name usually gets shortened into a fun short name.

One thing that really helps a nickname stick is to have someone be introduced as the nickname. If the entire time you have known someone, you have been calling them 'pickles', you are more likely to keep calling them 'pickles'.

Another thing that helps with nicknames is repetition. I have never known a good nickname to stick when you only use it once a month, or so. People usually forget. If everyone were to start calling DPH: 'the duck', there is a good chance he will start being known as 'the duck'.

I think these are puddles of buckets of fun.

Hat Hair

While I was running and doing my workout today, the heat got to me. I had to stop my workout and walk over to where the shade was because I could feel my head start to get very hot and my mind start to shut down. I had to shut my eyes and try to make it to the shade which was only about forty feet away. I barely made it to the shade and my body shut down and I just laid on the cold concrete waiting for my brain to gain back it's normal function. I turned out to be okay even though I didn't finish my workout after that. (though I tried and felt the same thing coming on so I called it a day)

This has led me to ask myself why this happened to me today when it has never to my current knowledge happened to me before. Everything was about the same today as it was the last time I ran, the temperature may have been a couple of degrees hotter but nothing that would make me feel so much worse. It was also the same time of day.

My first guess as to possibly why this had happened is that, my hair was previously acting as a hat. It could have been keeping the sun out of my face and possibly keeping me just cool enough to function properly. As you can see by the picture, my hair was covering most of my head, as well as my neck and forehead. Maybe.

The other reason I can think of is that maybe my water consumption prior to working out was less than before. This is probably what happened. Duh.

Animal Collective was just a category on Jeopardy.

Except it wasn't about the band, it was about what you call animals when they're grouped together.

For instance, a bunch of wolves hanging out = a pack. Or, a group of rhinos = a crash. Also, a group of crows = a murder.


Ok, Now It's Time to jump in the Pool

I got my hair cut... for free!!! The only stipulation for getting a free haircut was that I had to get it really short. It's about a half of an inch long all over my head. It looks anywhere from okay to really cool. Check it out at It's nifty.

It is really hot in West Palm. Especially when you are trying to get back into shape. Other than the heatness and the lack of motivation, the whole working out thing this summer is going pretty well. Hopefully it all pays out for me in the end.

Also, I need to cut this hair off of my head. It keeps getting in my eyes and I have to close my eye so the hair doesn't get in it. Then, when my eye is closed, I end up losing my balance and almost tripping. I would expect my hair to be off of my head by Monday. No promises though.

Monday, May 4, 2009


I'm starting my new workout summer plan tomorrow. Wish me luck. I need to be persistent in order to achieve my goal. I would really like to get back into the shape I was in when I was in high school.

Barry Me

Yesterday at the Jimmy John's, I was reading one of the many signs on the wall and I found this one poster interesting. It was called '16 Things That Took Me Over 50 Years to Learn' and it was by Dave Barry. Dave Barry wrote a humor column for the Miami Herald that my Dad used to read. My Dad really dug his humor (he probably would have used the 'digg' function on the column if that was invented at the time and he knew how to use the technology) and subsequently bought a couple of his books and thought he was a very funny guy. In fact, Dave Barry books were the default Christmas gifts that my brother and I would by my Dad because he always seemed to enjoy receiving a book by Dave Barry. When I saw that he was the author of the list I was reading, it kind of gave the list sentimental value to me. Anyway, here's the list:
(Underneath the rule I put my own little input.)

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Cuz it will make ya poop yourself. While you sleep.

2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why thee human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be “meetings.”

Why take so long to think? Just Do It.

3. There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness.”

While I don't disagree here, it might take me another thirty years to figure this one out completely.

4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

I feel like this is very true. I think there is a different way of going about this.

5. You should not confuse your career with your life.

You will only probably have your career until you're 65 or so, your life lasts until you die.

6. Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.

This one I have trouble with. I need to be less self conscious.

7. Never lick a steak knife.

You'll probably cut your tongue or something.

8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe Daylight Savings Time.

I couldn't explain it for certain.

10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

This could end badly.

11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.

I struggle with this one a bit, but I agree wholeheartedly at the same time. Stop expecting a party or a big deal at eleven, if you get a party after that, consider yourself lucky. Feel free to throw a party for yourself if you want to make a big deal out of your birthday.

12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

I'm the best. Not. Actually I'm pretty good.

13. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, is not a nice person (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.) ?

Plus, it's not a good idea to tick off the waiter, he/she handles your food.

14. Your friends love you anyway.

And I love them.

15. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

The Ark saved the animals and the Titanic crashed and people died.

16. Thought for the Day: Men are like fine wine. They start out as grapes, and it’s up to the women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.

I bet you thought he was going to say they get better with time or something.

I hope you all enjoyed this. I'm moving back to West Palm today for the summer, and I'm going to miss all of my Tally friends. Love you all and see you guys soon.

If i was a vampire race car driver, I would be called Count Draftula.

Get it. It's like Count Dracula but at the same time it has racing elements in it at the same time with the whole drafting thing. Well, I though it was kind of funny. Geeze.

Christmas List (Reloaded)


Christmas List

1. Bike
2. Umbrella
3. A Sweet Light Up Eagle (glow-in-the-dark also acceptable)
4. Nice Headphones

First off, I realized that I probably wont be getting a light up hummingbird, so if it's going to be on my Christmas List I might as well go all out and ask for a sweet light up eagle (glow-in-the-dark also acceptable).

And furthermore, I currently don't have a pair of working headphones. Between now and Christmas I will most likely buy myself a pair of headphones, but they will probably be a pair of $7 crap headphone craps that break after a month and a half. I probably want headphones that are more or less just for my room, so I can watch videos on my computer or listen to music. So, I more or less want to stay away from ear bud headphones. That's all.

My parting words are to always remember what Genghis Khan always said, "That's right, that just happened."

Name Luk-a-thon.

With Luke's sick nasty performance last night, I think it's time he got a stage name. Because, ya know, who doesn't have a stage name? Rick Ross? Oh, you mean William Leonard Roberts II? Sounds like even Rick Ross has a stage name. If anyone can think of a sweet stage name for Sir Lukas, that would be swell? Also, if you want to think of a DJ name and a non-DJ name that would be cool too. We could even call him William Leonard Roberts II. But, not really, cause that's lame-ish.

Do the Stanky Legg

"I Stick My Leg Out and Start Jiggin'"

Check this video out. It's called 'Stanky Legg' and it's by the G Spot Boys (a.k.a. the GS Boys). It's the hottest new dance move. I was thinking today that I could be someone that could show the world hot new dance moves. Maybe that could be how i make a difference in this world. Actually, I didn't discover it or anything but I figured I had to blog about it. Danny Oats showed it to me and it seemed to be pretty out there. I would even go as far to say that it is almost as cool as the Soulja Boi. My favorite part of the video would have to be at about one minute twenty-five seconds into the video when randomly in the back of the video, instead of having the girls dancing, there are girls sitting on ATVs. So cool.

Also, I couldn't publish this without pointing out how classy their name is. G Spot Boys, you're somebody's hero.

I also like how they spell the word leg with two 'g's much like the disease I had in my hip back in Elementary school.

Classes are Done

It's weird to think that my second year of college is almost over. I don't think I'm scared to go into the "real world" but I am scared that my time in college is really passing me by. It's going by super quickly and I would really like it to stop now so I can just chill out and relax and enjoy the show.

Speaking of "shows", Lukas's sweet dance party is tomorrow night and I think it is going to be sweet fun. I just found out my new favorite adjective for this week. It's showy. Just kidding, it's sweet. It will probably stay like this for a week or so and then my favorite adjective will go back to being 'awesome'. Or maybe it will become 'sick nasty'. I think that might be cheating though, because it's two words and therefore twice the power. Uh oh.

Christmas List(Revision)

I have a new addition.

Christmas List
1. Bike
2. Umbrella
3. A Sweet Light Up Hummingbird Like The One In The Television Commercial

I know it probably doesn't exist but if you could get one for me, that would be swell. K, Thanks. I love you guys.

Kickball was pretty epic today. The teams were kind of unfair but it was still fun. It seemed like everyone had a pretty good time. I really enjoy getting together with people I like and running around and kicking things. It could have been better if the teams were more even. I probably sound kind of bitter but I'm not really because it was really a blasty blast. We should really do things like this more often.

Special shout out to Zach and Chet for rocking the short shorts.

I Really Do Love College...

I found a funny parody video for that sweet song about loving college by that cool bro Asher Roth. You can view the video and listen to the song here. I don't really like the song, but it does make me laugh when I listen to it. I think it's the absurdity of it. I'm not saying that somebody couldn't do the things in that are said and go on in the song/video, but I'm going to say that nobody would be able to keep that up for an extended period of time.

Then I came across this sweet parody of that song called 'I Love Knowledge'. I found it on Some guy realized that college rhymed with knowledge and went to school with it, no pun intended but I like it. The knowledge version is just the same song but with sweet G rated lyrics about studying and going to class as opposed to the PG13 lyrics about partying and weed of the college version.

I think if you can find a good mix of the two, you should have a good college experience. If you stick to the college version, you'll probably not be spending too much time in college. But, if you go by the knowledge version, you wont have any fun at all. The trick is to find a good mix of the two. That is, if you want it to last more than, a couple of weeks.

Christmas List

I never know what I want for Christmas. I don't mind getting things but I just never remember the things that I need. I figure that if I do this right, this might be a good way for me to remember all of the things that I want and need when people are willing to buy them for me.

Christmas List
1. Bike
2. Umbrella

That's it for now. Thanks guys.

Also, looks like I'm probably going to be going to Chicago sometime in late July. It's still in the prelim stages but it should be pretty fun. It's like an early Christmas present or something.

Today, I realized that I can put my hair in my mouth.

Just barely, but still, I've never been able to do this.

Not sure if it's cool or not but this is definitely the longest my hair has ever been. Pretty soon it will me the longest my hair will ever be.

Unless, of course my airplane crashes and I'm stuck on a deserted island for upwards of four years.

Chicago Sports


I know some of ya'll aren't the biggest sports fans, but I consider myself a pretty big sports fan. I am particularly fond of the Chicago and FSU sports teams. Because of this, I was kind of excited when I saw that ESPN was choosing Chicago as the focus of it's first regional website. I thought this was pretty cool.

The setup for the website is basically the same as the normal ESPN website, same basic setup/ same setup for the links, but instead of being about all of the major sports stories it's about all of the Chicago sports stories. Here's a link.

I also have a closing remark from Sir Mix-a-Lot,
"A Booty is a Booty"
Thanks, Sir Mix-a-Lot, you always have something classyto say.

An Axe shampoo commercial just told me that 85% of girls believe that dandruff is a turnoff. That means that 15% of girls consider dandruff to be a turn on. I think that is pretty cool because I didn't know that any girls liked dandruff. It kinda opens up the dating situation for guys with dandruff who had given up hope on dating because of their horrible dandruff problem. Things are looking up.


I really don't mind getting sweaty. I really don't mind it. In the end though, I usually prefer it to be my sweat that I am getting sweaty from.

Happy Easter to all!

Hope the Bunny Brings ya'll something pretty sweet. (Not sweaty)

Shout out to Sweaty the Bunny, though.

The Sadness

This made me really sad. I can has save this kitty, please? I'll take cute kitty now.

Thursday, April 9, 2009


Tuesday (tzd, -d, tyz-)

1. n -The third day of the week.
"I couldn't go to the party, because I had class on Tuesday."

2. v - To put off until a later date, particularly after large amounts of procrastination.
"My paper was taking too long so i decided to tuesday it."
This will work as long as I work.

I need to work, but Ill find any way to not work.

If I need to work, I'll work unless I can't work.

These are the saddest of possible words:
"Tinker to Evers to Chance."
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
Making a Giant hit into a double--
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
"Tinker to Evers to Chance."

-Franklin Pierce Adams

The baseball season has started and I am super exciting. Go Cubs!!!


Today, I tasted the rainbow. By that, I mean a homeless man hit me in the face with a bag of Skittles for not giving him money. FML

I LOLed.

Danny Oats ftw

People have told me before that I'm one of the easiest people they know to get along with, and I feel honored, for lack of a better word. It's nice that people think of me that way.

With that said, I have found another person who meets these standards...

I have known him for a while. (Officially, I've known him for about 3 and a half years, maybe more if I really think about it.)

Many of you know him too. His name is Danny, and many of you know him as Danny Oats. I honestly have not met anybody he has not gotten along with. It's really truly impressive.

Bless You...

Why does sneezing get all of the attention? Where is all of the love for coughs and hiccups and all of the other random noises that come out of our mouths and noses without our permission. Why must we ignore them? I'm not saying I have a solution, but what up America?

Danny Oats Makes My Life

Oh, him and his shenanigans. He's so crazy. He shaved his head randomly and there is a big pile of Polynesian hair right outside my bedroom door. He so cracy.

Tuesday, March 24, 2009


Gah, he always hurts me. First he broke my glass and then one of my bowls and not he bets me I can't jump from the ground to the ledge and he makes me hurt my leg. What is he thinking, always breaking me and my things? I hate him sometimes but not really, I'm just playing Danny, I love you all of the time. I'm talking about Danny Oats of coarse. Daniel Luis Padolina Honeycutt. That's right, I said it. But my leg really does hurt...

Today in my Intro to Social Work class, we had a guest speaker from a place in Tallahassee called Lee's Place. Lee's Place is a place in Tallahassee that helps people cope with loss, whether it be from death or divorceor many other issues that could result in someone losing someone. We've had other guest speakers from all different aspects of the Social Work profession, but none of those hit me like this one did. I was almost distracted during the presentation because everytime the guest speaker would bring up something, an example would appear in my head of a time that situation happened in my life. It was just a very interesting class for me because it caused me to think about all of the people I have lost in my life and all of the people that matter most in my life today. Overall, a very interesting Intro to Social Work class.

Not Quite.

I think if Cookie Monster took his time eating cookies, he would probably be able to eat more cookies. It would be more efficient.

This would probably be a good twitter post, but I'm probably not going to get a twitter anytime soon.


Did you guys hear about Blake? He got into an accident a while back and he needed reconstructive surgery. Well, he got it!!! It's almost like he has a whole new face. And you know how we always made fun of his kinda squeaky voice by making our voices really high whenever we said his name. Because, Blake's got a new face.

I have that Vampire Weekend song stuck in my head, so I decided to write a little blurb about it. Sweet right.

Saturday, March 21, 2009


So, if you have talked to me in the last couple of days, I have probably brought up to you something that I've been thinking about lately that I think is incredibly funny, nay, hilarious. Okay, It's not that funny, but it does give me a giggle. On side note, giggle is a funny word, perhaps I'll write a separate blog post on why that is so hilarious to me. Spoiler alert though, you can probably imagine why it's funny to me. (I mean, look at it. Looking at the word giggle makes me, well... giggle) Wow, I just got sidetracked. Not going to lie though, it was a good sidetracked, not a bad one. Okay, I'm just going to throw this out there, I think the word 'brah' can be used in very funny ways. And I'm not condoning the use of the word 'brah', but in certain situations it can be comic gold-ish, or maybe silver or bronze, but definitely a precious medal. Or a gem or something, comic ruby, maybe it will grow on me. (That joke was comic sapphire, still maybe on that one.) Okay, back to our originally scheduled programming. If used in the right context, it works. There are certain rules to this awesomeness.

1. The word 'Brah' must be placed at either the beginning of the statement, or at the end of the statement. It's an add-on to the sentence. It is used to identify the person who is being talked too.
2. It is specifically used for one liners. If you want to do more that a one liner, it still might be funny, but it might lose some of its hilarity.
3. The line that you use needs to be a catchphrase or a well known saying. It's better if people know what you're talking about. I'm just saying.
4. To top off what is happening, say it in a very douchy condescending tone. Imagine if Keanu Reeves is saying something and he thinks he's better than you. So funny.

A couple of examples of this would be, "Taste the rainbow, brah" or "Confucius says, he who will not economize will have to agonize, brah"

I do most of my deep thinking in the shower. I like it that way. In the shower, it's just me, nobody else, no distractions. I could occupy my time by singing or playing a game of some kind, but nope, I spend it thinking. Lots of good thoughts have gone through my head in the shower. Maybe when I'm having trouble thinking or making a big decision, I should just hop into my little thinking chamber. It would be so cool. I should really do this.

Let Me Tell You A Story...

On my brother's 21st birthday he played laser tag. How cool is that? So cool, that i look forward to possibly doing the same thing on my 21st birthday. Except I want to do it with a little more alcohol in my system. Laser tag is something that looks like it would be pretty crazy tipsy. I'm just saying...

I would also like to have a separate get together at school since my actual 21st birthday takes place the day before Thanksgiving, and I will be in West Palm.

SB w/ SB

I had a good break. I wish it would last a little longer. I wish the days lasted longer, as well as the nights. With that said, it's gonna be nice to see my college friends again for the next six weeks.

Broken(but it's all good)

On Saturday, before I made the 6 hour trek home to West Palm, Danny dropped a glass. I don't blame him for the broken glass, but i was just a little bit sad to see one of my original glasses in a thousand(about 30) pieces. I had done so well to this point with keeping them intact. I can be a very sentimental person until I realize how little the thing meant in the long run, and that is more or less what writing this post did for me.
Also, Steph got her wisdom teeth out today and she took it like a champion. She was kind of freaked going in but she ended up doing great. That's about it for now, hope all is well for all of you.

this sucks

I hate it when you're planning to do something and something unexpected comes up and you can't do that anymore. It really is a pain in the butt. ouch.

Thursday, February 26, 2009


We won, it was a good game. Auburn kept it close and we won it in the ninth. If I wasn't so hungry I would have enjoyed it more. It's good man, I like winning.

Thank you

I'm glad I'm a Social Work major. Not only do I like what I'm doing, but everyone is ridiculously nice in a good good way. Everyone has a very kind heart. Today in class, we were doing role play interviews in front of the class and on camera, and my interview wasn't the best interview I've ever done. It was okay though, because everyone was very nice about it and only wanted to talk about the good things that happened during the interview. It's nice to know that my people have my back.

Also, there is a baseball game today that i am excited about. It's against Auburn. Hopefully we kick butt. We should kick butt. We looked good during the opening weekend but it was against Hofstra, so who knows. We'll see. Go Noles!!!

Name Change

I guess I'm going to try out this blogging thing. I would have done it before but the title is always so tricky for me. It kind of makes or breaks a blog almost. I guess I'm going to use the current title i have for my blog right now for a while and we'll see what happens. Later ya'll.
