"Life is a near death experience."

"It goes without saying I'm not the only person who has noticed this, but I never got to spell it out my way before.

Comedy's nature has two sides. Everybody wants a good time and a couple of laughs, and course, the comic wants to be known as a real funny guy. But the language of comedy is fairly grim and violent. It's filled with punchlines, gags, and slapstick. Afterall, what does a comic worry most about? Dying! He doesn't want to die.

"Jeez, I was dyin'. It was like death out there. Like a morgue. I really bombed."

Comics don't want to die, and they don't want to bomb. They want to go over with a bang. And be a real smash. And if everything works out, if they're successful and they make you laugh, they can say, "I killed 'em. I slaughered those people, I knocked them dead."

And what phrases do we use when we talk about the comic? "He's a riot." "A real scream." "A rib-splitting knee slapper." "My sides hurt." "My cheeks ache." "He broke me up, cracked me up, slayed me, fractured me, and had me in stitches." "I busted a gut." "I get a real kick out of that guy."

"Laugh? I thought I'd die.""

We're going to miss you George. You'll never die in my memory. Thanks for everything you've given us.

In other news...

I'm taking a break from studying for a quick minute just to upload a couple of pictures. Then i've got to get back to studying...

Here's gus and I studying.

This is her ignoring me and telling me to get back to work...

This is my study food. I just ate this whole jar. Holy shit it's good. It's like tostitos restaurant style that they don't make anymore, only it's chunkier. It's really good shit. Not like pace.

Yeah, so about that bike...**

I sat on a new bike today.(This is actually the 2009 model, I sat on a 2008.)
Anyone who knows me knows that i'm not a Duc fan, but I sat on this mofo. HOLY SHIT. I think I found my bike. It's in my affordable range, too!!!! I know there is a reader of this blog who knows well enough that I don't NEED a ducati, but.... I mean, if you could afford a Lambo, and wanted a Lambo, you'd buy a Lambo. This isn't really a Lambo, but it's still not too shabby. So this one might be a bike we take for a "test drive" and see how it rides. But I was looking at their supersport bikes as well, and they are a little less affordable, but much hotter.

So, there you have it. I get to move home or have a rockin motorcycle. Unless I can find one for sale in the newspaper that hasn't been trashed.

AND THIS ROCKS MY WORLD!! Just wait till I find the others....

This one is my favorite of all time from sesame street. I absolutely love this. I have been singing the little song for about two weeks (trying to remember my numbers). Please enjoy the picnic.

Happy Birthday

I got myself a birthday gift.

Whoa us facing the same direction is a coincidence. I think this will come in handy when I'm on my motorcycle. It's big enough to hold my purse and all my other geegaws, and it's small enough to hold my school books comfortably. So i can take them with me to work in order to study after work!

Yeah, so it's basically a backpack. BUT IT KICKS ASS!!

And here's a little blast from the past. I smiled when I saw this.
