    I hate summer. Don't get me wrong, warm weather and no school are nice, but the humidity and uber hotness and mosquitoes and ticks infuriate me. I HATE SMALL BUGS AND AIRBORNE WATER!

    It could've been you. Life is a gift.

    RANT: I've just finished packing four years' worth of junk and my huge roller bag must've weighed 40kg. And then one of the wheels broke just as I was about to take it to the storage room (which is a long way from my room). :sad:

    Sucks to be you. Around here, the air isn't wet in summer, and usually not too hot either, and there aren't that many small, biting, insects. IT ARE AWESOME.

    Here it's too hot in summer and too cold every other time of the year. I'd prefer summer stickiness and heat over anything though.

    I just like sitting in my back yard with blistering sun and nice comforting humidity, with a nice breeze coming from the ocean, maybe read a good book, have some nice iced tea or something.

    I was playing my madden nfl 08 on the internets. So I go into the lobby and there is this guy there and it's just me and him. He was ranked like 14th in the world so I send him an invite cause it's just me and him, and he accepts. His record was like 1400 and 400. Well when he gets into the game, it turns out he doesn't want to play me. He just gets into the lobby and goes, "Why the hell did you think I'd want to play you." So I kind of just go IDK I wasn't gonna be to big of a dick to him because he's obviously pathetic so I leave the game. And then dick has the nerve to send me a follow up message to the same tone, in this pretend bad ass voice and you know he's obviously not a bad ass seeing how he's played over 1800 games of madden. So I lost it sent him a message called him pathetic and told him he was pathetic and pointed out that he has spent 75 full days of his life playing madden 08. (Every game takes an hour. 2400 games would be 100 days. 1800 is 3/4 of 2400 so it's 75 days.) THen I proceed to go back to the lobby and spam him with invites. By that point there was more people in the lobby and he kept on saying I was a dick it was . .. .. .. .ing hillarious.

    ... I think I just screwed up my chances with a fine young lady by describing her as "my special girl".


    On her birthday.

    When we've only been going out for 2 weeks.

    After she had just told me that "I want to take it slowly"
    Fml.

    I don't, because I understand it most of the times. :p Yay for Roman conquests and Mediterranean cultures.

    And also, ones like carpe diem and tempus fugit are so well known that only an idiot would have to look those ones up. ;)
