Here’s a gun and hot weather for you, kid.

And like lightning from the sky there was a great crackling noise, and suddenly,  standing before you was the Blogger. Do you run? Do you have time to hide? Or do you stand there slack jawed in amazement as  you panic in a wild attempt to do all three at once? For when he returns none shall be prepared.”   – The Book of the Blogger 5:17








Okay, so I was rudely awakened this morning by the sound of an alarm clock and gunfire.

Now before you say “Murphy! You need to pack your stuff and get out of there!” I ought to explain the normal summer routine of the neighborhood kids. You see, since the beginning of the summer they have all been into buying airsoft pellet guns. Anything from the smallest pop pistol to the loudest belt feed turret machine gun. So on this day, unbeknownst to me in advance, they had a “Battle at dawn”.  They were walking around, all padded up from head to their toes and wearing goggles for protection while it was eighty seven degrees out…

“Now thats all nice and funny, but what does this have to do with your return, Murphy?” you might wonder. Well I’ll tell you simply. After my initial waking up I realized it was hot. It was really, really hot. I tried to use the laptop fan to cool off…needless to say, that was a bad idea. After getting a ice pack for my face, I laid down and decided on telling people how wonderful my day has been going. 

How has yours been?

Still one of my favorite youtube videos two years running.

Using a Outlet

Over the past few months I haven’t really put to much effort into writing. It would begin to appear that I do the most of my writing when I’m upset. That  is something I find interesting because as of late I’ve been extremely sad.

Alas, it would seem as though my darling Kitty and I are not meant to be. I can’t handle the distance between us and neither of us have to much extra time on our hands to make the three hour trip. God, I wish I  new that things would turn out okay in the end.

One of my friends told me “Believe that everything will turn out in the end, if it’s not alright it must not be the end.” I found out later he had taken it from the new movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Cheeky blighter. Haha
