Friday 5: Thats how the Movies did it

  1. In Citizen Kane, the main character’s last word before dying is “Rosebud,” which is discovered later to be the name of a favorite childhood sled. The idea is that this rich, powerful, hated man, in his last moment, finds himself thinking of happy, innocent times. If the film were about your life, what word might you utter in similar sentiment?
    Angel. My first dog.
  2. In Groundhog Day, the main character is forced to live the same day again and again until he has learned to love others and to love himself. If you found yourself in an endless loop, living one day repeatedly until you learned the lesson that was holding you back, what would that lesson be?
    I guess it would to be more social.
  3. In Freaky Friday, a mother and daughter who have difficulty understanding each other find themselves each living the other’s life (occupying the other’s body and everything!). If this were to happen to you for similar reasons, whose body would you wake up in?
    I guess if anyone it would have to be one of our customers at Wendy's. Who the hell doesn't know the difference between a jr hamburger and a single hamburger?
  4. In Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones has to jump into an underground room filmed with the one thing that freaks him out: snakes. “Why did it have to be snakes?” he asks. If the movie were about you, what would you see in the underground room?
    I guess if anything it would be to see an empty room because that would usually mean that your going to set off some kind of trap that you wouldn't see coming.
  5. In Sideways, the main character is asked to explain his love for wine made from a certain grape. As he describes the grape, we realizes he is also describing himself, saying that it must be carefully tended and that it is easily damaged. If the film were about you, what passion (hobby, food, collectible, or activity, for example) would you describe and how would you describe it so that you were also describing yourself?
    Video Games. There are many things that i like about them from their beautiful graphics, to their compelling stories, to their intuitive game play. Because of all of these, i like how immersed you can get into a well designed game.((hmm, that didnt exactly have anything about describing myself, ill try remember to fix that later))

Friday 5: Before Your Time

  1. Of television programs that aired before you were born, what’s your favorite?
    I guess i would have to say Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
  2. What person of historical significance was from your neighborhood or city?
    Umm... the guy who started Heinz ketchup.
  3. What’s a story that’s often been told about someone in your family in the years before you came along?
    Don't really remember any stories. Guess they didn't interest me that much.
  4. Which of previous generations’ dumb mistakes (in deed or thought) baffles you the most?
    I cant really think of any mistakes at this moment
  5. What aspect of life in the good old days would you love to see a return to?
    How much cheaper everything was

Friday 5: Metaphores be with you

  1. When you go to the beach, lake, or pool, are you more likely to lower yourself gradually into cold water or to take a determined plunge and get it over with?
    Haven't went swimming for a long time but I think I usually went in gradually to get used to the temperature of the water
  2. How is this like (or unlike) your approach to other tasks or ordeals?
    I think I do pretty much the same with other things. I get into it gradually until I learn or get used to it enough.
  3. When someone gives you flowers, are you more likely to let them turn completely brown and gross before throwing them out, or to discard them the moment they take on that sick-flower look?
    I would more than likely keep them as long as possible
  4. How is this like (or unlike) your approach to other gifts, purchases, or relationships?
    I thinks its just like any thing else. I'll try to keep it for as long as possible, even if they lived out there use. I'm sure I'd be able to find some other use for them.
  5. Think of your favorite movie (or a movie you really like, if you can’t think of a favorite). Some people say that the reasons you love your favorite movie are related to what you value in romantic relationships. How is this true or untrue in your case?
    So.. does that mean i should start living a double life as a caped crusader and fight crime?

Friday 5 - Bad Food

  1. What was the last meal that caused you to be ill?
    I get stomach aces pretty often after eating breakfast sometimes. I get them so often though so it really doesn't bother me too much anymore. They usually only last for an hour or two and their gone. The last major illness I remember was after eating school lunch in high school a few years ago. I think I had toasted cheese sandwiches with tomato soup.
  2. Are there any places you never dine anymore because of a bad experience hours after the meal?
    Not that I can think of.
  3. What’s your prescription for dealing with a food-caused illness?
    I don't really have one. I usually just ignore the stomach aces after breakfast since they don't last too long.
  4. When friends tell you about coming down with food-caused illnesses, do you avoid the places they name, or do you figure it’s a dice-roll wherever you go?
    I guess it's a dice-roll. Besides, if get sick there as well I'm sure someone will complain to the restaurant and they will try to get rid of whats making them sick. Either that or they will get shut down by the health department.
  5. After numerous citations, a very, very popular restaurant that you’re quite fond of is shut down by the health department until it can get everything up to code. When the health department gives the restaurant the o.k. to reopen, do you go?
    Of course I would. Nothings going to stop me from getting my favorite food. Even if i have to make it myself. Besides, like my teacher said yesterday, "better to have eaten cake before you die, then die and find out there is none in the afterlife."(not actually word for word but pretty close to what he said)

Plotting for some future RPGs

For a while now I have been thinking about starting an RPG. I want to start out with one or two very short RPG's with very few(2 or 3) people so i can get used to being a DM and maybe try a few things out. After the 'Practice' RPGs are out of the way, I want to start one that will be on going with many different adventures taht will go on for hopefully months. I also want to make a Journal of the Adventures in the RPG's in the form of a blog for others to read. Another thing i was planning to do with the RPG's was to incorporate 3dstudio max as a visual for the players instead of using figures on graph paper like others do. Ill build 3d models for all the characters and enemies and build environments to move them through. If anyone is interested in joining in let me know.

April Fools

I didn't really quit my job at Wendy's. But it is true that we are learning how to do breakfast now. the part about opening and cooking breakfast every morning is also kinda true as well except i'll have a little less to do, wont have to clean a fryer anymore which is what normally takes up all my time, and ill only be called upon to help up front when we get really busy. Look forward to having breakfast at Wendy's in Castle Shanon starting this Thursday.

Bad turns to Good

I just quit my job at Wendy's recently. We started to learn how to make the food for breakfast, but that isn't the reason why i quit. The reason is because they expect me to cook breakfast, as well as everything else that i already do to open, before we switch to lunch. I already have a hard enough time getting everything done before we open at 10:30. At least i already got an interview scheduled for an internship at SilverTree Media. Finally, I'll be in the field that I'm going to AIP for.

Mostly boring week

This week i joined the Wrestling Mayhem Show after missing last week. They declared it fancy hat day and put hats on. i just went with it and turned my headband around. This week we had a special guest by phone, Toa from American Gladiators. Later it was requested that I sing, and so i did "sing".
The rest of my week was pretty boring and lonely. I was pretty down and i don't even know why. kinda made it hard to get all my homework done for school.
One more thing. I got my internet ordered this week and will be online by Friday. So look forward to me posting more often.

Cold Week

This week, not much really happened. Didn't join the wrestling mayhem show this week because it was canceled on Tuesday and I did not know they had it the next day(listening to it now).
Work has been going a little better lately. Tuesday was really slow because of the snow storm. A lot of us got let off work early because it was going so slow. Wednesday, we expected it to go slow since it was still snowing pretty bad. the manager actually let one of us go before we even opened. That was a mistake because we got hit pretty hard with customers that day.
The only other thing that happened is that i learned theres something wrong with my heaters in my new apartment. I had to set it to 90 degrees for it to reach 75 degrees.

New appartment, New beginning

I've been in my new apartment for about a week now. I don't have internet yet so for now I have to go to school if i want to use it. not too much interesting has happened yet. Tuesday i went to my brothers for the wrestling mayhem show. Got picked on by the special guest wrestler CJ Sensation every time the dog came through the door, making a loud noise. I think Wednesday i finished organizing everything in my apartment. then yesterday was my housewarming party but only my brother Mike and Missy showed up. we went to Arby's to get some food but only didn't get all that we ordered, at least we weren't charged for more food. then we got pizza at the vocelli's down the road and found out how expensive their pizza was, not going to order from there again. then we sat down and watched "A Series of Unfortunate Events". Thats about all that happened in the first week at my new apartment. I'll update next Saturday on how week 2 went.
