Signs...

Today I saw a stop sign by campus that had the word "Playin'" at the bottom of it. So it read, "Stop playin'". I was amused.

I've seen other stop signs that have "the war" at the bottom of them. I'm amused by this because it's accomplishing nothing. Why waste your time painting a stop sign to get your message across?

Also, today, I saw a license plate on a car that read, "GIGITY". I laughed out loud at that one.

Oh, signs.

A joke for ya...

Two television antennas meet on a roof, fall in love and get married. The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent!

Just a joke for ya.

Does it exist anymore....

So, this morning, this other dude and I are about to walk off the bus at the same time. So, I stop and I let him go first, and he gave me a nod of appreciation. Then, he steps out of the bus and stops to hitch up his backpack, right there on the curb! This is semi-fine, semi-rude in itself, but the problem is that he has trouble with one of the straps. So, there he stood and on the edge of the inside of the bus is where I stood, waiting for him to move so I could get off the bus.

Seriously, common-sense courtesy... does it exist anymore?

Randomness...

Some more random things and thoughts.

-If you're going to the Rose Bowl, raise your hand. I know you can't see it, but I'm raising my hand. Unfortunately, I'm not going for work this time, but I am going with the bowl tour at work. My parents decided they wanted to go as a family x-mas present, so we're going!

-Beauty and the Geek on MTV. Giving hope to all of us, ina really weird way. Also, a girl just cried and it made me remember one of my biggest pet peeves about girls crying on TV... WHY in the HELL are you waving at your face when you're crying!?!?!?!?! What's the point? Are you hot? Are you trying to dry the tears? Or, as I suspect, are you trying to draw attention to yourself!? Ugh.

-Went to a Christmas party last night. I didn't want to go empty handed, so I brought egg nog, candy canes, ice cream, and presents for a few. It made me ralize how I'm really in the mood to give in various way to all the favorite people in my life. No, this doesn't mean you should try to get stuff out of me, and it doesn't mean that I don't like you if I don't do something for you, it just means that Matty Clause could get ya at any point. Ho. Ho. Ho. :)

That's about it for now. I'll be back with more randomness.

:)

What to write about? I realize that I haven't written in a while, so I kinda feel like I should. I guess I can just recap some things.

Probably number one in my mind has been U of M football for so many reasons. I wrote about my personal Bo memory. Beyond that, two games that impact the team are being played later today (or, since I haven't go to bed yet... tomorrow). For the third year in a row, I've gone to the Football Bust.. or banquet. It was fun as usual, got to hob-nob a little, got to represent the Alumni Association, and got to have another one of those moments where I was experiencing something that I felt like I had no right to experience. Yeah, I'm a grad of U of M and I work for U of M and I'm a huge U-M sports fan, but it just seems like this is the kind of event that big-timers or family should only be at. Yet, there I was. I don't completely know why I feel I shouldn't have been there, but that feeling lingers.

Another thing weighing on my mind recently is DJing. After quitting Millennium/Cavern (I'm still glad I did, don't get me wrong), I was hoping my friends would come up with some gigs for me. Obviously they'd be free gigs (DJing is still about the fun, not the money, to me). The problem is that I see on facebook that people I know and/or friends are going to parties and such, but I never hear that they tried to get me into the party to DJ it. I know they do, when I ask them to ask the party hosts, but I wish I didn't have to prompt it all the time. Oh well, word of mouth has gotten me this far...

My "love" life is also on my mind. Actually the lack of it is on my mind. It's weird, I've never found it so difficult to either get a date or generate a little interest from the opposite sex. I'm batting .000 here and I'm not sure I can find the batter's box anymore. That was a metaphor for having some "game", not anything sexual... ya perverts.

There are some health things on my mind too. One with my mom and one with a friend. I don't need to get into it because I'm sure they'll both be fine. But they're a couple of things that I've been thinking about.

I'll end it here, and I'll TRY to update more often, especially since I know about 4 of you read this. Later :)
