I don't know what kind of doctor I need to see about this one... I'm sitting here watching "Pee Wee's Playhouse." I can't believe I'm actually watching it and not changing the channel and I can't believe that there is actually a TV station that is still showing this most damnable of shows. "Get wacky... at Pee Wee's Playhouse!!!" help me.

I'm still trying to understand human nature and not having a helluva lot of luck with it. My roommate Anna moved some more stuff in the other day and her parents came with her. Well, her mom offered to clean our kitchen floor and who am I to say no? So she moved the mats from our kitchen out onto the balcony and within five minutes, they were stolen. What the hell value do mats have? Her parents were in shock considering they come from Po-dunk USA and have never experienced the joy of morals gone awry. Bunch of fucking savages in this town (with apologies to Kevin Smith).
[editor's note: I had a roommate named "Anna"?]
Well, I went to see Star Wars: The Phantom Menace today. I enjoyed it. It was nothing like the originals, of course. But, whoever said it was supposed to be like them? Treat it as a standalone flick and you'll like it. Do not, I repeat, do not compare it to the originals if you wanna have a good time.[editor's note: What was I smoking?]
It's good to not be one of the fools once in a while. I opted to avoid those long ass lines to get tickets to see Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. People thought I was insane. "Oh, you must not be the Star Wars fan I once thought you were". Yeah, well bite me! I have connections. And those connections have two extra tickets to opening day. So... ha! I avoided the lines and got two tickets for the 7pm showing on May 19 that Market Square Theaters here in DeKalb. Hey Kaaaatiieeeee...
I can't believe that the human race has survived as long as it has. I know that sounds extremely pessimistic, but get this... my new apartment was broken into on Thursday. We hadn't even moved in yet. My roomie Jill and I had done our pre-move-in inspection and moved in two boxes and an unassembled kitchen table. Someone keyed into the apartment (no signs of forced entry) and actually took the damned table!! I can't believe that shit. That table is heavy as hell, too! As much as I love Darwin's theory of natural selection, it obviously missed a few individuals.
Wow, this school year is actually over and done with. I'm actually done with Housing for the rest of my life. It's great and weird at the same time. Housing has been a part of my life for nearly six years now. Not just working in it, but also living in the halls as well. Gonna miss the people but not the job... that's for damned sure.
Well, guess what? My girlfriend and I are now official. "Girlfriend?!?!" Yeah, she checked out of her room today and now we're dating. Yep, she was one of my residents. But, not anymore. So, be happy for me because I'm sure happy for me.
Okay, so maybe I am a loser in some respects. After going to see Entrapment last night, I dragged a friend along to Wal-Mart for the midnight release of all the new Star Wars toys. I wanted to go just to laugh at the large crowds that I was expecting that never showed up. Wal-Mart was dead by way of comparison to the crowds that I saw on TV at FAO Schwartz and Toys R Us. Damned disappointed. So what did I do to drown my sorrows? I bought way too damned many SW Lego sets and a few figures as well. So much for just going to laugh, eh?
