State of the Cartman...

Isn't sad that I find an episode of South Park more insightful, deeper, and smarter than our president's State of the Union speech?

Water Park...

Friday after I came home from work, I noticed a big wet spot on the ceiling of my living room. Worried that a pipe was leaking or snow melting was seeping in, I called in a maintenance request.

Today, the maintenance people came to and left this note, "Opened up the ceiling and found that water had been spilled in unit above..."

My questions to my upstairs neighbor are, what in the hell were you doing and how much water did you "spill" (in your LIVINGROOM!!) that it went through your carpet, through your floor boards, and through my ceiling!?!?

This ain't no water park!

Fun and old.

Oops, I didn't realize it had been 12 days since my last post. Well, I'm back, baby.

Friday night was another highlight of my DJing "career" as I finally got to spin in the church on Church St. For those of you who don't know. The building is a former church that was turned into a few apartments. I think I had last been in that place in 2001, and I've wanted to DJ there ever since. The party was packed, everyone seemed to enjoy everything I played, and for me, it was great because I was up on a loft looking down on the dancefloor.

Now, I didn't mind being a 27-year old in a party full of 19-21 year olds, but I was asked by a 20 year old MSU student, "OK, tell me honestly, how old are you?"

I said, without blinking an eye, "27, why how old do I look? I'm always told I look older than I am."

Her response, "I was gonna say 30."

Should I reserve my spot in the old folks home now?

To live and die in LA - 2Pac

From Dec. 29, 2006 to Jan 2, 2007, my parents and I traveled with the Alumni Association out to Cali for the Rose Bowl tour.

I don't have much to say, other than it was fun. I got to go to a lot of places that I had and had not been in 2004. As usual, i like getting my parents to travel and I like making sure that they are having a good time and can relax and enjoy the trip. However, now that that's over, I need a vacation!

So, everything but the football game was good. I can't believe that the Michigan football team couldn't get it together. It was ugly and embarassing. We thought this team should be playing ohio state for the National Championship!? That wasn't the same team I remember.

LA, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills are all nice places, but they all made me realize that I'm living where I want to be. There are so many reasons that So. Cal is a great place to visit, but not anywhere that I want to live.

That being said, hopefully I'll be back next year with our real football team!

Go blue.
