|hooray for valentines day
Is there anyone that actually likes this day?
so yeah the girl of my dreams spent yesterday making out with some guy that isn't me. ok i'm kind of "glass is half empty" whatever. So why would i even like a girl that doesn't like me? "I know i'm irrational, I'm in love." (but more on that some other time)
actually i did have alot of fun yesterday thanks to Monkey and Ben for auto showin' it up with me. but now i really want an STI (subaru imprezza wrx sti) that's a goal i suppose. later kids.

|another upbeat message?
I could walk this fine line between elation and success, but we all know which way i'm going so strike the stake between my chest.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanks giving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

|too much, really?
Too much for me to handle today.
Have you ever felt like someone has taken an icecream scoop to your insides? I have, i do right now, i hate it.
It's been 5 years since i've known, I didn't see exactly what was there until last year then it was so clear to me, so obvious. now what? am i wrong? how blind am i?
I'm the one holding the icecream scoop.
I've been relying on my own strength for too long.
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)

|well Brandon has fancy plans, and pants to match.
(edited for boredom sake) I'll leave the irrelavant lyrics though
good eye sniper
i'll shoot you run
the words you scribbled on the wall.
the loss of friends, you didn't have.
I'll call you when the time is right......
....bye bye beautiful, don't bother to write.

What what.....this goes out to the kevin smith nerds out there. Actually that's all i've got, I need to get back into some kind of sleeping schedule. I'm all crazy and not the fun, whitty crazy Brando that you all know and love.
anyway.... i ended up buying that sweet VTEC head for the CRX. dang i'm excited!!!! and for those of you who missed the lecture on Valve Timing and lift Electronically Controlled (VTEC), be sure to see me for the notes.
incidentally, spending money doesn't always cure depression. I guess i'll stick to the drinking and drugs

An idea dies, in the same slight way,
that we lose track of the facts.
Slowly, unseen, slipping silently,
through some fabricated cracks.
And now the freedom of the press,
has turned to freedom to impress.
Perfect hair, sells product well,
like suffocating, sickly smells,
the make-up smears, like false pastels,
like glossy, sugarcoated, shells.
Tune in, tune out, goodbye, goodnight. They're buying you with fear and lies. Turn it off until it's right, that's the news, that's all, goodnight.
The advertising dollars buy,
the right to stifle antonyms,
to sterilize the truth with fiction,
so we can sing their corporate hymns.
And all of us were cowed and bought it,
hardly anybody got it.
While mergers made their spires grow taller
what they let you know grew smaller.
And we were scared, or too bemused,
and so we still turned on the news.
Are you afraid yet? They want you to be. It will keep you coming back. You are a loyal customer. Are you
afraid yet? You should be.
(yeah Five Iron is awesome, they will be missed. everyone reading this should own "the end is near")

|i have issues, and gas
So I get really weird when i'm on any kind of cold medicine, i'm talking like tylenol and sudafed. It's nuts, I string broken thoughts and words together into a kind of crazy haiku. apparently i do the same thing when I talk to a certain person after i only get 2 hours of sleep over 3 days. It's not like either is the case right now, I just think it's really funny that i get poetic in those situations.

|good-bye sleep, hello insomnia
I'm really jealous of anyone that can sleep more than three consecutive hours. I can't believe how little i've slept over the past 8 days. but i am reading alot which is always a good thing. I should start reading survivor again, right monkey?

|God speed my vikings!!!!!!
there is your pete and pete reference of the day.
I hope someone other than monkey caught it.
oh yeah you gotta love Artie the strongest man....... in the world.
|am i the one that's going crazy?
wow this is turning into quite a stressful week.
everyday it seems like i find out more and more that i really don't know anything. I'm not used to be wrong about things, I've really learned alot about falling over the last few days. And i basically have to make some huge life decisions very soon, not really looking forward to that.
i'm mostly non-confrontational, but I've really been lead to step into a leadership role and that requires me to speak up and hurt someone's feelings alittle. I know it's a neccesary thing but i'm still not looking forward to it.
(yeah i kept it vague on purpose maybe those that subscribe to the Brando newletter will decode it)

|song that is currently stuck in my head
If it hurts, kiss it better.
you wear skirts, i write nice letters.
never said nothing with flowers
though we always talked for hours.
and it seems to get much colder
when you cry on your own shoulder.
and we know the show must go on
i guess i know, i guess i'll throw on
some jefferson airplane
i'm trapped and i am enclosed
but i wont complain, I'll open all the windows
cuz when it's colder, i feel much better.
when i cry on my ow sholder
i'll just throw on a sweater and go
and i'll undergo a change of heart, a change of clothes.
and when i'm home
i think i'll go eat cereal and stare out the window.
i'll make the calls, you cover your ears.
niagara falls still flows on new years.
i will save your plunging neck-line
kiss your face, you tried to deck mine.
if i behave it's going to cost him,
skip the rave in downtown boston.
and we know the show must go on......
|minus the emo
I'm not all emo, I'm also a nerd. Being a nerd isn't all bad though. two reasons from today that i am a nerd: 1) I spent the better part of this morning trying to buy a PS2 game that doesn't even come out until the end of january. Jim and I were actually scheming ways of acquiring it early. 2) I actually considered using Lord of the Rings character names for the voice dial on my cell phone. ok so i only considered it for a few seconds, yeah i would still roll my eyes at myself.
|and when it all goes to hell, will you be able to tell me "i'm sorry" with a straight face?
I think i think too much... Is it that even possible? OK so there is no denying that I slip in and out of emo comas from time to time. they don't last long which is good seeing as it's basically counter productive and a waste of time. It's still annoying and I don't understand why i can't stop caring. I have so many reasons to run but it's like the choice isn't mine..... I've never had anything like this before, i have never met anyone that forces me to think so much(even now) and honestly it kinda scares me. I don't know, maybe i am crazy, actually i probably am.

|I am Lloyd Dobbler
Lloyd is one of the best characters ever, and "say anything....." is definetly a top 5 movie of all time. But i'm pretty sure it's not a good thing that i am like him. Let me explain for those of you that haven't seen the movie and don't get the Brando newsletter. nah actually i'm assuming EVERYONE has seen the movie. ok so the situation is a little different..... I got a say anything poster and not a pen in exchange for my heart, and i've all but held up a boom box up infront of her house. What song would i play? nothing by peter gabriel that's for sure. maybe some yellow card.

I'm pretty sure it's early friday morning, I'm going on like 2days of no sleep and i'm surprisingly awake. anyway..... Ben, Cake and I are watching "Back to the Future" good times.
"dude I love the second Back to the Future, you know, with the board that defies gravity" -cake
