I wonder how much I weigh. I think it is funny when people call websites portals to make them sound extra fancy or sophisticated. I don't like the term 'the runs' to describe loose stool. I think it would be kind of neat to invent the next big hand slap/shake greeting thing. Like it would be pretty OK if I was the guy that invented the 'punch' a few years ago. I was pissed a couple of weeks ago that my softball ended but I am happy recently because I have filled in my Thursdays with punk shows. Last week I got to see Less Than Jake and this Thursday we are seeing Blink one hundred and eight two at the house of blues for $1.
