It Makes You Want to Punch a Baby.

I HATE it when people are standing in front of the yogurt (just an example), deciding on what to buy, and after looking at the nutrition facts of whatever they're looking at, put it back in the wrong spot.

That being said, there's a right way to put things back in the wrong spot, and there's a wrong way. I will describe what i'm ok with and what pisses me off below.

Reasons why i get so mad at people who put things back in the wrong spot:
- if i'm standing right next to you filling something on the shelves and i can see you, it's probably a bad time to put whatever you're looking at in the wrong spot. To me it says "Fuck you, i don't care if you have to fix what i'm doing, even though i am STANDING WHERE THE ITEM GOES CAUSE I JUST PICKED IT UP."
-If you are still in the same 4 foot strech of supermarket when you decide that something you picked up off the shelf is not what you want to buy, put it back where you found it. It almost takes more effort to put it back in the wrong spot.
-There is NO POSSIBLE WAY to put something back in the wrong spot on accident. Because you picked it up, you had to be standing there...

The only time it's ok to put stuff back in the wrong spot is if you are nowhere close to the section you got it.... For example, if i'm walking around walmart, and i decide i want to buy Air Bud on DVD an pick it up, then later decide that it's probably a bad idea and i can catch it on HBO later tonight, and i'm in the Panteen Pro V section, i'm ok with making Air Bud a health and beauty item. This is because i'd have to walk all the way back to the electronics area. When i see some bacon or something in my section, i'm ok with that, cause it's a long walk just to take back some bacon.

That's it for now.

Songs I Need to Take Off My Ipod.

As i was driving to Tech this "weekend" (i have off monday and tuesday), i had my ipod on random like a usually do, and came across a record number of songs that i would really be embarrassed if they came on in public. So here goes... all the songs i'm taking off my ipod once i get back to the LP.

Christina Aguilera - Come on Over.
Yes... this is actually on my ipod. At one point in my life i thought this was a cool dance song... hello 6 years ago. goodbye this song.

Baha Men - Who let the dogs out?
I can't help but laugh at myself for actually downloading this song, let alone have it on the ipod. But i must say, everytime it's come on, i laugh for the first "who let the dog's out... woof woof woof" and by the last woof, it's changed...

New Kids on the Block - Step by Step, Hangin Tough, and the Right Stuff.
The trifecta of NKotB. also a good one to have a laugh at for the first 3 seconds of each song... only with these songs, after i laugh, i cry, cause it's sad that I still have them on there.

Color Me Badd - I Wanna Sex You Up.
Sorry Dad, i know you love this song, but i can't handle listening to this whole song.

The Hampster Dance.
You guys remember that webpage that had this cute hamster dancing on it to a techno song called the hampster dance? well i do. I have it on my ipod. probably one of the most annoying songs ever made. still funny though.

Lifehouse - Hanging by a Moment.
I used to like this song. a while ago. but now it's just annoying. and it reminds me of Nickelback. and nickelback makes me want to stab things. so it's getting the axe.

Nine Days - Absolutely (the story of a girl).
"who cried a river and drowned the whole world." that's not depressing at all. not in the least bit..... This song was so overplayed, that i'm surprised it made it onto the ipod in the first place... Although, out of all of these songs, this is the one that i'll probably still keep (even though its on this list). It's probably the least hated song on this list.

Every Queen song minus the good ones.
The good ones being Bohemian Rhapsody, We will rock you, We are the champions, and under pressure (which i don't really like, but you gotta have it on there cause it's what Vanilla Ice ripped off.)

That's it.

Coming soon... Songs I Am Keeping on My Ipod but I'm Still Embarrassed About Having on There.

Holy Hell.

I just hung up the phone with the worst telemarketer i've ever talked to. This is how the conversation went.

Retarded Lady: Hi my name is _______, is the ...(pause, i hear typing in the background)....
Me: No Thanks. Have a nice day.
RL: This is Verizon and this is very important information.
Me: Ok, go on (Since verizon was over here yesterday to install stuff i figured i'd give her another shot just in case this actually was important.)
RL: We are conducting a survey on television usage for......(another pause, i can still hear typing in the background.)
Me: I don't want to take a survey.
RL: Sir, your information will be confidential, we will.... (pause)....
Me: I'm busy. I gotta go. *click*

Now i could've really laid into this woman for not knowing how to talk, but i find that writing a blog entry while i'm still steaming from her not learning how to talk would be a better output than yelling at this lady.

I wish i had it recorded.

The Best and Worst Parties of All Time.

After this awesome weekend, i thought i've realized that the last 2 parties i've been to happened to be the worst, and then the best parties i've ever been to. I'll start off with the best.

I'm gonna go ahead and say that the best party i've been to is any one that is called OBB. Shocker right? Anyways... it's a full day of drinking, music and drinking. How can you beat that? With flipcup, and horseshoes too, it makes no room for other parties to compare. For all those who are OBB virgins, i really feel sorry for you guys, cause you don't know what you're missing. NOTHING is more important than OBB. and with Cinco De OBB coming up next year... i hope to see you all there, cause i'll be there.... having the best time of the whole year.... every year.

Ok, now that i've said that, time to talk about the worst party i've ever been to. (And if you happen to read this Hanson, i'm sorry, but seriously... you guys need to work on your party throwing skills.)

Anyways, i went to GMU to hang out with my friend Nick Hanson for a random party he told me about, so i was excited. The trip started out kinda shitty, cause mapquest directions basically just stop. (it's in a court, but the court isn't actually in mapquest, so the directions just stop at the entrance of the court.) But i eventually found it, parked my car where it was going to stay all night, and into the morning, since i had planned on spending the night there. Once i got there, things were great... met up with some old OHS people i hadn't seen in years. played some beer pong, kicked some ass, and lost the next game, and went about my way. by this time, i'm about 3-4 beers into the night, when one of my underage friends arrives(whose name is being withheld to protect the guilty. hahaha). once he shows up, we go get a beer, and as we walk up to the keg, one of nick's friends says to me "seven dollars please."

7 freaking dollars for this party. This is unacceptable. i don't care if you're serving Crystal... if it's a college party, $3 is the most you ask for, if you ask at all. but seven dollars, give me a freaking break.

So i walk over to nick in his room and ask him wtf is up with 7 dollars, and he looks at me like "what's wrong with that?" and says "how about 5?"

I didn't want to argue, so i just threw down $10 for myself and my friend... we'll call him Jim so i don't have to keep saying "underage friend."

So Jim goes over to get his beer, and comes back with X's on his hand. They asked him if he was over 21, and when he said no, they x'ed him, then proceeded to give him some beer.
From a college party standpoint, this should never happen. I understand that they're just trying to protect themselves from trouble, but if you're gonna try to protect yourself, don't let him drink. that's simple enough... don't give him the X mark of death. if he wanted x's on his hands, we would've gone to a bar.

By the time all of this had happened, i had drunk enough to where i couldn't drive home, so i was stuck. So Jim and i just hung out by ourselves, trying not to draw attention from the large amount of douches that were attending said party.

As the night was dying down, Jim and I sat down on the couches to "claim" them for the night ahead, when this random kid comes up to me and starts talking shit to me for NO REASON.

Retarded Kid: Did you just look at me? FUCK YOU.
Me: What?
RK: You want to fight me?
Me: Are you joking?
RK: You're a pussy, come say shit to my face.
Me (to Jim): Is this really happening?
Jim: I think so.

RK walked away without saying anything else...I thought he was joking. like seriously, i thought he was trying to be funny.

About 5 minutes later he walked past Jim and myself....

Me: What's up man, you feeling better?
RK: Did you say something to me? (walks over next to my face like a big man who wants to fight)
Me: Dude, i was kidding relax.
RK: Fuck you say something else.
RK: That's right, i'm a big tough guy who likes men.

Ok so that last line i kinda made up. but it's probably true. As RK walked away, Jim said to me
"if that kid did anything to you, i so had your back, cause he's retarded."

That made me feel better.... but not about the party. it sucked.

I spent the next 8-10 hours trying to sleep through people talking. 1 conversation happened to be at around 4:37 am about something stupid where i turned around and said "SHUT THE HELL UP IT'S 4:37.... GO TO BED" which did the trick.

That's my story.
