approximately $25 million is spent each year on lap dances in las vegas...

Does anyone else have days that just require you to stop everything and clean something? I have one of those days at least once a week. Maybe I'm just obsessive-compulsive or whatever, but I'm much better than I use to be. I use to have everything in its place...not a spot of dirt or dust on anything. Now I have piles of stuff laying here and there, especially clothes. My room is kind of dusty and disorganized. My vehicle is starting to look the same way. What happened to me? Today needs to be a cleaning and organizing day. I got paid today (that's weird, yesterday was payday), so I need to pay bills too. It's my environmental maintenance day. Everyone should have one.

On another topic...
My Scottish friend/bodyguard, Ye, scored a job in Vegas!!! He's moving there pretty soon. How sweet is that? Looks like I'm going to have to take a little trip up to Nevada (it's where the action is, duh [inside joke, I apologize]). Ye can show me the architectural sites, although I'm not quite sure how good of a tour guide Ye is. "Ugh...there's a cool building by that one guy that you like...ugh." I miss ya, ya scary old lumberjack-lookin' Scotsman. I hear you've gone "straight-edge". Is it for the ladies? Huh? Tell me it's for the ladies.

at the equator, the earth spins at 1,000 mph...

Oh, snap! I spelled my website name wrong on my title banner and no one noticed (or at least said anything). And just think, people let me design their buildings everyday.

there are plantations in africa...

Has anyone else seen the stupid Dodge Durango commercials on TV? Why would you teach your child to say the word "hemi" before it has even developed its own motor skills. Can you say "Dadda is a redneck?"

For those who don't know:

Hemi - 1. Engine using hemispherical-shaped (half of a globe or sphere) combustion chambers. The valves are cocked at 45 degrees from the piston top. This shape permits larger valves and straighter intake and exhaust ports for improved breathing. Its small surface area in comparison to volume reduces the amount of heat loss. It is used in high performance cars and racing engines. 2a. A shifty black man who hides in bushes around public parks and preys on young girls. 2b. Black rapist. 3. Short for hemorrhoid. "Paul, it hurts so bad to sit down! I think my hemi's acting up!"

yea, definitely, definitely graphics, yea...

i like changing my banner more than i like typing anything. that's ok, right? mentally, i'm like...ok, right?

the neglectful blogger...

This has turned into a once a week thing, I guess. It's hard to post anything when nothing exciting happens. The day to day drag of the working man doesn't bring many new things to the table for discussion. I could talk about the highlights of my week and it would only support this theory. For example, yesterday I saw one of the laziest people in the world. Well, she wasn't too lazy I guess. She did actually make it out of the house to go bowling. The reason I think she's lazy is because she would pick up her bowling ball and throw it down the lane from the same place she picked it up from. She wouldn't even take a step toward the lane. She would just make a half turn after picking up her 6 lb ball and drop it in front of her and hope that it made its way toward the pins. Then she would take a few steps backwards and immediately sit down. I couldn't figure out if she was 300 lbs because she did things like this or if she did things like this because she was 300 lbs.

Wow! They really do exist! And apparently they're on tour! Coming to a mall parking lot near you:

Jews 4 Jesus:  No longer is he 'Just another Prophet'

two little mice fell into a bucket of cream...

That last post was pretty nasty. I'm feeling much better now. I just have a little stuffy nose, that's all. I think it's due to my allergies though. By the way, do anyone else's parents communicate with them via weblog?

Eric built another piece of furniture for the house this past week. He built an end table that matches the coffee table that he built. This past weekend, he also built a lamp to go on the end table, and it's pretty darn sweet. It's just a big, frosted glass box that glows. It's about seven inches wide and about two feet tall. I like to describe Eric's work as "post-arch school" style. If anyone is looking to buy some modern furniture, lamps, etc. let me know. I'll put you in touch with the "Big Daddy" himself. The only thing better than buying a nice piece of custom modern furniture is buying a nice piece of custom modern furniture from the actual designer/builder. (oh, that's a good sales pitch)

i think i'm getting the black lung, pop...

I have the best luck. This is my first full weekend off in a long time, and I've got some kind of jungle throat rot. I spent the majority of yesterday struggling to get oxygen, and now my morning has been spent coughing up a thick rainbow colored mucus. I can't really say that the weekend was totally shot. I did make it out to the park yesterday to play a little soccer with Natalie. That was fun. There were lots of really cool dogs at the park yesterday, so we spent plenty of time petting...oh...hold on, got a cough something up...ugh...ok. I'm good. No, really I'm fine. I've got to kick this before tomorrow. I'm trying my best. I'm taking vitamins, drinking green mint tea and plenty of other liquids, staying warm, and keeping the mucus out of my throat. Bleh! I know it's disgusting. Anyone know any good medicines for a serious cold? I think I'm actually at the point now where I will take some drugs.
