Everyone thinks that they are right.

Ling Ling, my ass!

As humans, many of us work hard to keep our environment clean, healthy and alive.
We have National Parks, reservations, endangered wildlife funds and various research projects all to make sure that our planet will last forever.

At a very young age, we are told that we should respect the environment. You know, "don't litter", "conserve water" and of course "recycle".

We are also told that every being on the planet has its own special use. Every organism plays its own unique role in the environment and that all of it should be protected and saved.

Well I beg to differ, because I have found an exception:

Fucking pandas.
Those smarmy, self righteous bastards.
Of all creatures on this earth, pandas are the ones that serve no use to the ecosystem.
They do not produce anything useful (except for shit, which can apparently be made into souvenirs...), they don't serve as prey for anything and they don't keep any kind of population in check.
Bamboo population? Yeah right. That shit grows faster than mold on a week old burrito. Pandas or not bamboo is going to flourish. There is so much bamboo and so few pandas that they don't even count.
Pandas. Serve. No. Use.
On top of being useless, they're little bitches, too.
Everyone thinks they're so cute and cuddly,
Do you not realize this?
There is no difference between


They're both bears, they're both huge and they both want to tear your limbs off.
Just because they look like fat mimes doesn't mean they're friendly. Or in an invisible box.
Below is a video of a lucky man.

Long story short; fuck pandas.

Skip. Not exciting.

Day 24- A letter to your parents

Day 25- What I would find in your bag

Cough drops, pay stubs, pepper spray, a ton of keys, phone, ipod, perhaps food,
change, my wallet, pills, lady products...
All kinds of things.

Day 26- What you think about your friends
Well now,
that really depends on the friends, I'd say...
Considering I rarely see most of my friends, I can't really make much of a judgement on that.
I see my work friends a lot.
And the people that I am actually friends with, I really like.

Friends outside of work really depends.

I have my Philly friends that I love but never see.

I have my New York friends that I am still getting used to.

My Maryland friends are pretty much non-existant anymore since its been 10 years since I've seen any of them.

Then I have other ones, from many places., I guess...

Day 27- Why are you doing this 30 day challenge?

Mostly so my blog doesn't die, so I have something to write about and something to do. Despite the fact that I neglect it....

This was a really boring post.

I am sorry.

Day 23- Something you crave for a lot

And chinese food.
And chili dogs.

lots of cravings.
I put pregnant women to shame.


Day 22- What makes you different from everyone else?

Answer: Nothing.

Everyone is the same.
Programmed the same.
We all think basically the same way.
As much as we would like to tell ourselves
that we are all different,
sadly, we are not.

We are all made out of the same things
We all live, we all breathe, we all die.
I am just like you, in many ways
and you are just like me.

Maybe the one thing that makes me different
is that I actually understand this.

Slackin 21

Day 21- A picture of something that makes you happy

Believe it or not: cleanliness.
It seems very simple.
And cleaning is something that I rarely do.
I will no lie, my house is always a mess.
And I hate it.
But when it is clean, it is a wonderufl feeling.
My mind is so much more at ease.

Day 20- Someone you see yourself marrying/being with in the future

This guy.
This guy right here.
He is the Mario to my Peach,
The Link to my Zelda.
My Knight In Shining Armor,
My retard in tin foil
My Prince Charming.
I love him very much.
See how good he is, taking my little cat for a walk in the snow?

Hear Ye, Hear ye!

Yesterday was a wonderful day.

Van and I spend the afternoon at the New York Renaissance Faire.

It was a LOT of fun!

Getting there was a horrible hastle. Aside from not being able to properly read a GPS, the god-awful parking situation, and the less-than-accomodating staff, everything was very well put together.

It took us at least 30 minutes to figure out where to go. Turns out that you had to take a bus from the parking lot, to the fair. Then wander around there for 20 minutes while the staff stared blankly at you, desprite your confusion. Only to find out that you have to cross the street to get to it. Simple enough, right?

But, after going through all of that, it was wonderful.

So many colors and characters. Booths and tends and stalls of all kinds of interesting things.

Delicious food and pretty clothing.

V got me some lovely flowers and a turkey leg. Everyone knows that is the way to a girl's heart.

Plants and meat.

One of the coolest things we did, was see the birds of prey show. Enormous creatures, some of them. Owls and condors and hawks and vultures. It was really very cool.

All in all it was really cool. We're definitely going back next year.

The end.


Day 17- Someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why

Specifically, I'm not sure.
But I think I would like to switch lives with someone that lives in India.
Their culture is so extremely different than ours, that I think it would be very difficult to live over there for an extended period of time. But for a day, just for the experience, that would be great.

Day 18- Plans/dreams/goals you have
Plans, dreams, goals?
As of right now, its just to get in shape.
I'm really tired of looking the way I do.
Also, to find a better job.

Day 19- Nicknames you have; why do you have them

I've got an ungodly amount of nicknames.

First and foremost is Red.
I think that one kind of speaks for itself.

Skeletor was another, because I used to be really skinny.

Tupac, because of all of my tattoos (Miami Ink was another one)

I know there are a lot more, but I can't remember them at the moment.

Day 14, 15 and 16. Along with some other things.

Day 14- A picture of you and your family.
This is my family and I on our cruise to the Bahamas.
It was quite a fun time.
Also the first vacation we had been on together in 19 years, I believe.

Day 15- Put your iPod on shuffle: First 10 songs that play.
This is so something that you are not going to want to sit through...
Alright, here goes nothing:

1. Creep (Acoustic) - Radiohead
(Unfortunately this version is edited.)

2. Baby, I Got Your Money (Cover) - Say Anything

(This cracks me up)

3.Damn You Looks Good And I'm Drunk (Scandalous) - Cobra Starship

(And this is definitely the first time I've ever heard this song.)

4. Whole Day Off (Live) - Oingo Boingo

(If you didn't know, this is Danny Elfman's band.)

5. We Are The Gothic Archies - Gothic Archies

(Gothic Archies singer is also in a band called The Magnetic Fields. Some of their music can be found in the TV show Queer as Folk. They also did the soundtrack for one of my favorite movies: Pieces of April.

6. Screaming at the Wailing Wall - Flogging Molly

(Flogging Molly. Not a whole lot to say here. Just good ol' Flogging Molly. Though, I was listening to them yesterday, so it is kind of funny that they turned up here.)

7.Group Sex - Cirlce Jerks

(Never listened to this song, either, to be honest. Well, not that I remember, at least.)

8. The Age of Pamparius - Turbonegro

(Another one that I've never listened to before. As you can see, my ipod doesn't get much use anymore...)

9. Horror Beach - Horrorpops

(These guys are wonderful live. I highly recommend seeing them, if you ever get the chance.)

10. Dance in the Sand - Shwayze

(Shwayze is so chill....)

Day 16- Another picture of yourself



Day 13- A letter to someone who has hurt you recently

Dear Friend,

I am writing because I am concerned.

Speaking honestly, I know you must feel lost. Lost, confused, upset, broken and most of all, out of control.

Do you realize that you feel like this, or do you think what you are doing is normal for everyone?

I don't know which would be worse, to tell you the truth.

Part of the reason I am writing this, is to express my concern for you. The other reason though, is to let you know that you are hurting me as much as you are hurting yourself.

I miss the old you.

Regardless of the fact that change is inevitable, you don't have to spiral downward.

Change can be a good thing, you know.

Not matter what, we are going to grow. No matter what, we will all transform into a more defined "us".

Please make sure that you are changing for the better.

As of right now, it seems as though you are doing the exact opposite.

You let other people ruin you as much as you ruin yourself.

I don't know if you just feel like being defiant, or if you are just oblivious to the fact that you are slowly falling into self destruction.

The fact that you keep me at arm's length now doesn't help.

Maybe if you would just spill your problems out instead of trying to cover them up with bad habits, things would be going a lot better.

Stop doing such detrimental things,
if not for your sake,
then at least for mine.

Day 12- How you found out about Blogger and why you made one

This is an interesting story.
Not really interesting, but I think so.

For some reason, ages ago, I wanted to see if the world "Lumberbum" would come up on Google. Not really sure why.
I believe, I actually used the website called Blackle to look it up.

Well, it came up in a blog called Attack with Decay. Anyway, I started reading his stuff and really enjoyed it.
Since then, I've started blogging.

200th Post! (Day10/Day11, too!)


200th post today.

Ive had this blog for...2 years now, I think?
Something like that.

Unfortunately I've nothing to celebrate this 200th post with, other than the fact that I'm eating guacamole.

Can I just mention that avocados have 1/4 of the calories of butter?
Also 1/4 of the fat!
They also have 0 choleserol and 0 sodium!

So, next time you go to spread some butter or toss a slice of cheese on your sandwhich, stop and slice up some delicious avocado instead, or spread some guac on the bread.

I also missed Day 10 yesterday. So I will encoorperate that into this post.

Day 10- Songs you listen to when you are Happy, Sad, Bored, Hyped, Mad

Happy- Anything, usually. Often some kind of techno.
Sad- Regina Spektor, Sufjan Stevens.
Bored- I look for new music!!
Hyped- Protest the Hero! RAAAH!
Mad- I don't listen to music when I'm mad, for the most part. I throw things instead.

See? Wasn't that exciting??

And, for day 11.

Day 11- Post another picture of you and your friends
See above.

That would be my best friend Jess and I.
Long story short.
We started a fake band.
Wrote some hilarious songs.
Ran from the police.
Spring break.

Day 9. Also, 90210

First off, today is 9-02-10
Great, right?

Day 09- Something you’re proud of in the past few days

Proud of?
Nothing. Nothing really?
I can think of a lot of things that I've done
that I am indeed proud of.
But not within the
last few days.

Been sick, you know?

Day 8.

Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why

To tone up a bit, for sure.
Though that probably won't happen.

With halloween only 2 (ish) months away, I never know who or what I will dress as.
So, it is time to lose some weight (10-15, I'm thinkin) and tone up.

We will see what happens.!
