Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away.

The fallout from yesterday or rather last night has been really interesting. Interesting for two reasons; one I don't remember a lot of it, and two what I do remember doesn't make sense. So I thought I would regale you all with a list of things I do and things I do not remember from last night, perhaps you could enlighten me later.

Things I don't remember: The reason I bought a two liter bottle of coke. How much I had to drink. Why the bottom right side of my chin is sore. Drinking water. Talking to vikram on msn. Going on msn. Other people who won at the MTV awards other than Usher. Time people left at. The time between 1:48am till 2:48am. Most of what we did.

Things I do remember that don't make sense: Going to 7-11. Running down a street. Getting into Grahams car in the driver seat. Graham correcting me on how we pronounce his name. Hugging people. Spilling coke. Impersonating LiL John and Shaq. Calling JoJo a Dog face male. Taking pictures with my phone. Drinking dark rum.

All in all it was a good time, but i dont think I'll be drinking for awhile, well for at least a week or so. Give or take.

The last of the Durnken Dunning

OKAY OKAY O FUCKIN KAY. Look Vote or Die, got no other choice, WWWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTT????????????? thats right. Here's a list of things i've learned from mtvs music awards. 1) lil john and usher rule 2) shaq and will smith are an idiot 3) JOJO is a dog face male. 4) I love you all.
Second, i can see clearly now as the rain has gone. I can see all obsticales in my way. Fuck. Jim have good time in T. dot. You will be missed. Vikram be good in UBC and stop trying to soil The good name that is Pollock. Things dont need to go down like that. HAGS. And not only that but, Vote or Die bitch.
I wish i could be there for you, as i am the most sain person here. I miss Jim's wacky antices already, even though he's not gone. BIG UP TO THE JESUS. Rock away. I have water, and it sucks.
Damn i miss Jim, those Jews aint got nothing on you. Kids never mix Rum and Vodka it'll mess you up.
Big up to the Rexin, iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii am so drunk. GET TA NAKED. Okay i took a ten min break to sober up and im not sober. Big up to water. 7-11 is shiney when drunk. Every single night the same arrangement i go out and fight the fight.
Okay, I got stop drinkin at some point or else im going to to kill myself also, I have to pee. Also I think im somewhat sober as i think i went and layed down somewhere and i think i went and started bloging again after i got back up.
Good god, im never drinking agian. Ric Flair WHWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO. And yes vikram in answer to your question dico night sounds really good.
And I think i am going to go and sleep or piss, or sleep and piss as i need somethin.

Okay, perhaps I should have made people aware that these "Bored" Poems that are coming out are Dunning originals. Now granted we only have two posted, but they seem to be strongly ignored. But perhaps now that you know they are not only Dunning Originals, but will also be a regular feature on this blog. Maybe now I can get some feedback, but whose to really say. You?

That is all.

HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!

First off, at the request of Graham, Dinning and Vikram; who got me drunk on Vodka for the first time, Tell me I should blog. And So blogging commences. And first off I would like to say. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUKCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKK YOU!!!!!! Second off, I hate the song Blue velvet, and if I hear that song one more time tonight I think I am going to kill myself. BBBBBBBBBBLLLLLLLLLLUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEE VVVVVVVVVVVVEEELLLLVEEEET. Secondly, I discovered that I like Vodka, so now my drinks will be vodka and orange juice and Rum and coke. Perhaps one day I will mix them both together, and we will discover a brand new world of tastefullness.
So I thought to myself as I came on here, what to talk about. As I never have anything to talk about. But here I am.....Talking. So I guess, I could talk about the fact that Im now addicted to firefly and how great a show that is, (but I cant watch it because hmv those fuckin diabolical bastards screwed me over on not watching it.) So the second thought that came to mind was well, I could continue doing my fashion report but I thought no, I'll save that for when im sober. Which by the looks of things wont be anything soon.
bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbllllllllllllluuuuuuuuuueeeeeeeeeee vvvvvvvveelllllllllllveeeeeeet.
So as a result of loosing too good friends of mine this fall, as they have left for school, I think, nay I must find a way to make a lasting tribute to them some how. And so far all I can come up with for one is mario golf. This must involve more research. And yes vikram, I do know the entire words to Crocodile Rock, and not only that but I know a lot of elton john lyrics in general. I also know the American pie song as well, but im too drunk to think of the tune. I think it involves a truck of somekind and a book of love. But whose to say? Donald Trump that's who! or even P. Diddy. Those guys know a lot of shit. Except when it comes to the things that their actually good at.
Good sweet mike. Fuck I hate that saying. What does it even mean? where did come from? And not only that, but shutup. Apparently also im like the brother a lot of people never had. Such a large family.
Man, Vodka gives such a different drunk feeling, does it have more of a kick then rum? No htat/that cannot be. As explained to me in the car, Rum and Vodka are essentially the same drink but just taste different. Lousy beatnik's.
I know also of the homerow method of typing do you? I THINK NOT! man my fashion sense is going to rock a lot of peoples world. Especially YOU.
I wish I knew HTML, as then I could actually make this blog kick some ass, instead of looking so stupid. I mean I could add pictures, Links, I could add so much shit that it would BLOW YOUR MIND.
Whoever invented Blogging must be a millionaire, I wonder if im going to remember any of this in the morning
You know what else is sweet? I don't get hangovers, you know why? Because im not only irish I am also scottish and part german/welsh. Therefore I have the right to be a nationality whore, or maybe it was just a whore, whose to say in this crazy world.
You know, Jesus was a really intresting person. We could learn so much. We could also learn from Ghandi but I doubt that's possible. I AM A MUSLIM AND A HINDU AND A CHIRSISTIAN AND A JEW AND SO ARE ALL OF YOU!
I am also a Sexy Beast. A sexy beast just searching for his beauty. Good god did I just say that? More to the point did I just type that and think it.
You know what's weird. Like orange drink, hate oranges, what's up with that? I've been suggested three topics from Dinning to blog about at this point. 1) The canadian olympic disappointment, which frankly I cant see, I mean were a fuckin winter sport country here, the olympics don't matter. Well cept Igali. 2) Crazy itallian guy selling mattress, Well I dunno much about that but I do know how you get a whop (spahgetti in one hand meatball in the other and whop) hio! 3) Bodyshots. I have to say I don't have much experience in the body shots. Other types of shots maybe. But shots involving the naval I have to say im out of practice. And its a sad state of affairs when I become out of practice with body shots.
Well that's it for me, Im going to go listen to some NWA or Eazy E, or possible Akinyele Put in your mouth. Or even some Ludacris or Tupac, I cant really decide. Maybe you should decide for me.....vote now. Okay tomorrow Im finishing that bottle, because I only do two things well chew gum and kick ass, and im all out of gum.

The spin is rooming

Oh okay....so as I type this I am somewhat inebriated. And by somewhat I mean ALOT, so at the request of Vikram and Graham it is requested that I blog. So I am blogging. What about I am not sure. How about what I did today. Today I got up at 11am went and returned bottles to safeway for 15 dollars and went to work. Work lasted 4hrs or so and I made a few Error's. I admit, but did they have to get so angry? Then I went to the mall, picked up Josh Whedon's firefly for 22 bucks marked down from fifty. Yet another underrated show. What the hells with that by the way? Why am I the only one I know who likes whedons work? I mean its quality shit. QUALITY. I mean look at Buffy. Maybe one day I'll get even drunker than this and philosophize on why Buffy is the greatest tv show in history but for now think I'll pass on that. But for now if I had to rank the seasons, in order of greatness, or awesomeness take you're pick. Id have to go with 5,6,3,4,2,1,7. Though 7 might actually move up in the ranks as its been awhile since I've watched it, and is the only one I don't actually own at this point.
Then, on to big fun time. Big time fun usually turns out to be Big waste time, but this time was awesome. Not only awesome but disturbing. In that I found out more about my friends then I ever wanted to know. Plus it ended up to be documented on video tape. Don't ask.
I've also realized that I use the phrase son's of Bitches lately where I picked this up from I do not know. If you realize where I picke this up from it would be a great big help.
I've also realized that I'm more drunk then usual. Normally I can handle more, whether that's good or bad, I dunno. Maybe its all irrelevant. Maybe its not. Whose to say. Well I guess I am to say, as I am typing this out.
Man, I have got to find a new drink. Rum and cokes works too well. and why the hells my room so messy? Didn't I just clean this up like 3 days ago. GOD DAMNT!
But enough rambling. I guess a highlight of the night (eat it TSN) was the greco roman wrestling with Graham. That shit could be put on TSN Classic. Man this is has got to be the stupidest blog ever. Is stupidest even a word? I don't think so. Im going to regret this in the mornin.
I've also realized that I use the word or phrase Man alot, for whatever reason this has seeped into my subconcious. Although is it really a subconscious thought if I realize its there? I dunno any more.
At this point you're probably wondering where this blog is going, and the answer to that is, no where fast. Also I apologize for all the grammatical errors in my blog, its times like these I wonder why I ever want to become a English major.
I feel now I should rank the Buffy women on their hotness. 1) Eliza 2) Alyson 3) Sarah 4) Juliet 5) Charisma 6) Amber 7) Emma 8) Michelle *too young.
Vikram tells me at this point that I should mention about what's hot and what's not for the coming months so here goes. Hot: leather. the oc. banzi trees. Not: Cotton. the bernie mac show. Lotus
Anyways, that about wraps things up here. Again I apologize for this blog in advance having no purpose or relevance. I also apologize fore the horrible horrible grammar. And I wish I could have made it a bit more entertaining. Oh well I guess that's that then.

Douche Bag of the Day #2: The prime directive.

Friday, August 13, 2004

Douche Bag of the Day #1

In keepin with these blogging times, I am going to start posting what will come to be known as, the Douche Bag of the Day. Seeing as how we already have, BQOTD (see Dinning's blog) and PLU quote of the day, and not to mention, the Song of the Day (see Graham's blog); I figured that this would fit nicely into the mix of things. Now the DBOTD can be anything....EVEN YOU!!! So without further adieu, lets get this ball rolling.

Douche Bag of the day: Sleep deprivation.

So my new phone is pimpin', but not quite pimpin' enough. I need to spice it up a bit and get some kickass ring tones. However Im not sure which to get. This is where you come in. I figure, why not let you decide for me (well kinda); I figure you could suggest some and depending on how many suggestions I receive in the span of 2 days, that out of those, Id pick the best one.
And too the winner, a brand new shiny can of Coke.

Let the games begin.

Come along, you belong, feel the fizz of koo koo cola

Hey all.

So the party on the 13th looks like its slowly coming together. Slowly being the key word. Though it's shaping up to be the best Dunning Jam yet. We'll maybe not the best, but perhaps best attended? That's gotta count for something right? Right?!?
Lets see, other news. Oh, got my new phone, FINALLY! Gotta say its been worth the wait. Already drained 1/4 of the batteries, that Prince of Persia game is a bitch. The pics on the cam turn out better then I expected, guess that's a plus.
Also, you've probably noticed that I haven't posted anything in a while. Well its really been because of both procrastination and depression. Depressed over not having my phone, and because the other day (Thursday I think) I did nothing but watch Buffy (I'll be mentioning her a lot on here) Season 6 and watching that Season always makes me a little sad.
Friday made up for it though, that was a bitchin shindig, though a little pricey, even for me. Well I guess that pretty much brings you up to date. I'll try and be a little more constant with these posts but don't hold your breathe. On second thought hold your breathe.

Free at last

Free at last, free at last, hallelujah im free at last. That's right people my days of Douglas are officially behind me. Well not really, but more or less. Yes the shackles have been broken, though it hasn't quite sunk in yet, that I will never grace those hallowed halls ever again. And once more that im even coming away with a degree. Man, "Associates Degree". Who would have thought. So, only one more final to write and then Im SFU bound. Hopefully if everything turns out the way I have it planed.
But then nothing ever turns out the way I plan. Like the other day. I ordered a cell phone about 3 weeks ago from fido. Two weeks ago, I phoned them and asked them why it hasn't arrived yet, they say not to worry and that its on its way, only two more days. So I wait, ANOTHER week. I phone them today. And now they tell me that I have already received it, and not only that but I had signed for it, apparently two days before I had phoned to say I hadn't received it (the first time). So after about a half hour of trying to explain to them that, not only did I not receive it but I never signed for it, they finally said to go to the post office and complain to them. And complain I did. And basically what they told me was that they have it, but can not give it to me because the address that fido gave them doesn't exists. So I had to get fido to go phone them, make the changes and now it should take 2-3 days. But Im not holding my breathe.
So what have I learned from the last few weeks? Well I guess, that people are idiots (myself included) even with degrees. And now Im off to organize my wallet.

No good can come of this, for that I am certain. Frankly, I don't know why I am even doing this. I have nothing to say. Well nothing that's relevant or important. But I guess that doesn't really matter when it comes to doing a blog. Furthermore, I would like to avoid turning this blog into one of those glorified self-serving blogs. You know? Where I do nothing but talk about music, movies and Comics, and bitch about the happenings (or in my case, lack there of) in my mundane life. Yet, I know my fears will be realized. Why? Because simply put I have nothing else to talk about other than music, movies and Comics. Its all I know.
I supposes I could attempt to be creative. Post short stories, poems, maybe even write a song. But who has the time? And more to the point, who wants to read them. Yes, this blog serves no purpose in the grand scheme of things. And until I can think of something original to do with it, this blog will continue to be wasted space. And because of that, I am certain no good can come from this.
