Random Acts of Random. Volume II, Issue I

Hey guys. Remember that time I posted a bunch of random stuff on my blog? Here's another one!

I have really lost my sense of narrative. Time to insert a throughline. From now on, posts like this aren't random brain puke, but rather a segment we're calling:

"Random Acts of Random".

(Like that? It beat out "Brain Beat" and "A Visit to the Hodgepodge Lodge".)

- Well, those who know me know that I've been using "App State" as a verb since basically the day after their defeat of U of M. It's catching on, people. Here's the coach of the Kaneland High School soccer team (from the Chicago burbs) on their upcoming game against nationally ranked New Trier High:

“It’s a great opportunity for us,” Kaneland coach Scott Parillo said. “We’re gonna try to Appalachian State them.”


Beautiful.

-A few other current events nouns-as-verbs: "Larry Craig". As in, "I think some dude was totally trying to Larry Craig me in the bathroom." Also, "Britneyed". As in, "I shouldn't have gotten so drunk last night. I try not to get so Britneyed on the weekend."

- My roommate, who shall remain nameless, came home today and explained to me that she didn't realize yogurt was dairy. Wonderful. Explanation?

Nameless Roommate: "I guess I knew it was dairy, but when I think dairy I think milk and cheese."
Me: "Milk! Cheese! Yogurt! Butter!"
Nameless Roommate: "Oh yeah.... butter..."

I laughed harder than I have in a while.

- The weather in Chicago is so nice right now. I went to the beach on Tuesday and had one of the nicest beach days I've had all year. I'm going to miss you, summer.

i didn't read this post. but i will. probably. wanted to let you know i'll be in town for a day and a half oct. 3rd and 4th. flying out to hendersonville, nc to photograph a friend's wedding, and stopping over in chicago on the way. i'm sure you'll probably be working on wednesday, but if you feel like getting out for some lunch or something, i don't have to be at the airport until about 4pm on wednesday. staying with my friend rachel the night i fly in.

just thought i'd let you know. in case you wanted to grab a bite with a fellow dsif nerd.

You nameless roommate sounds like an idiot.

Now I feel like I shouldn't have called you out so much, by name, on my blog. Sorry about that.

Actually, I take that back, I'm not sorry.
