As I sit here on my couch, early December, I'm trying to push myself to start my term paper. I look for distractions; something that will help me procrastinate.

Ah, I've found it: Pictures! I love looking through old pictures. Skimming through folder after folder, I've been here for about an hour. I stumble across my Hawaii folder, and got a huge grin on my face. I remember the feel of the warm sun on my skin, the tower of power, the row boat, lavajava, the frigid Hilo pool, "prairie doggin' it", Safeway sandwiches, Jamba Juice, and many others...

I could say way more, but pictures are always more fun. Here's some of my faves:

Next adventure, 2011!?!?

A couple days ago at the shop, I went to open a drawer (which notoriously gets stuck) and my nail got snagged and pulled partially off. The darker side around the edge is actually bruised skin. It hurt at the time, but now it's all good and feels numb. I'm still deciding if that's a good or bad thing.

Anyways, I thought I would share with pictures:

I think it's actually kinda neat, in a weird way. But definitely not as neat as Gillian's thumb, which she got caught in her chain and cassette a couple years ago. Here, take a look:

Tomorrow, I head for Europe. Wish me luck and keep thangs fresh.

I was walking back to my car today after class when I spotted...

I figured it's a good reminder every now and again.

Keep it fresh,

I don't get it; people ride their bikes all over town and all over campus with a helmet either hanging from their handlebars or sitting in their basket. It's never on their head. Haven't people grown up enough to realize that no one will make fun of you if you wear a helmet? Why even own a helmet if you're not going to wear it? I think that if you add up the amount of money that a person would spend on a helmet (which aren't cheap), and you add up the amount of money you'd spend on an average number of lifetime tickets, you'd be SAVING money by not owning one.

Some people might argue that non-helmet wearers is a form of modern day natural selection. However much I agree with this point, I must also point out that current medical technologies are so advanced that they work to keep these morons alive, sucking out more money from our health care system than needed. Money that I think could go to PREVENTATIVE health care, such as not implementing HST, or tax cuts for sports programs, etc.. Some say it's their choice to not wear helmets, my argument is that it's not my choice for our government to be forced into wasting money on a person who wasn't smart enough to wear a helmet.

I think Jerry said it the best:

"There are many things that we can point to that

prove that the human being is not smart. The helmet

is my personal favorite. The fact that we had to invent

the helmet. Now why did we invent the helmet? Well,

because we were participating in many activities that were

cracking our heads. We looked at the situation. We chose

not to avoid these activities, but to just make little plastic

hats so that we can continue our head-cracking lifestyles.

The only thing dumber than the helmet is the helmet law,

the point of which is to protect a brain that is functioning so

poorly, it's not even trying to stop the cracking of the head

that it's in..."

I just don't get it, so wear your helmet.
