over the course of the past week, i’ve been searching to find a place to live. i never thought that i’d be living by myself ever, but i’ve recently been on a kick to have my own place. i think since i don’t really know anyone to move out with, the laziness i have to search for the perfect roommate, and the fact that all my friends live close by has caused me to want to live by myself. i also think that the idea of living by myself and decorating my place however i want is pretty enticing. so, over the past week, i’ve been searching for a studio to live in.

there are two places that i might live in so far. one is managed by a guy named haidar, who’s dry humor reminds me exactly of my dad, and this other place called the dakar aparments (it’s still a mystery why it’s named after the capital of senegal). i’m kinda hoping i get haidar’s place because if i got to see him all the time, that would make my life that much better (i’m pretty much obsessed with his ridiculous humor). but whatever the case is, i’ll be amazingly happy to finally move into my own place.

last weekend, greg, his roommate, robin, erin, nathan, and i took a vacation to new orleans. i spent quite a lot of money (surprisingly, mostly on food, since cajun and creole food is delicious), but all in all, it was an amazing time. the last night we were there, we were able to fight our way up to a balcony so we could throw beads at people. now, usually people try and throw them to the most attractive of the bunch, but we found too much humor out of throwing them at the not-so-attractive of the bunch. and though it was somewhat repulsive, it was pretty damn hilarious. and we might go to hell for it. but we made their day i’m sure!

there’s really not a whole lot more to update about really. i spent a lot of time working and searching for apartments so i don’t have any ridiculous situations to detail about. but maybe next weekend i’ll have something better to talk about. walks and hits per innings pitched.

What is the highest grossing movie of all time?

the title says it all. i have returned. from a really long ass hiatus. i’ve been without a computer for so long, i kinda forgot what i even did on here to blow my time. but i’m pretty sure it won’t take that long to remember how i used to waste five hours of a day just sitting on wikipedia looking at random shit or using stumble upon to find ridiculous webpages. or of course, to begin updating this blog again and continue my promise to regularly update this (which i still will, the me-without-a-computer period doesn’t count).

so i’m going to new orleans this weekend for the mardi gras celebration. when i was getting donuts before work the other day, there was some black dude hanging out outside the shop and told me that he would watch my car and make sure i wouldn’t get a ticket, and if i did, he’d pay for it. this obviously didn’t make any sense to me because the guy looked like he was poor as shit, so i started talking to him about why he was literally telling everyone who was parking on the street that he would watch their car and make sure the meter maid didn’t ticket them. well, in the half and hour conversation i had with this bum, i found out he was from new orleans and that he’s going back this weekend. we also exchanged phone numbers. i’m probably not going to call him when i’m there.

also, in other traveling news, i’m planning on driving up to alaska this summer. i’ve kinda wanted to do this for a pretty long time but just not actually gone and done it. but this is happening for sure. there’s a place in fairbanks that has a room that they set to -40 degrees (celsius or fahrenheit) and you can pay them to go around and play in it. they even give you a bucket of water that you can throw when you’re in there to see what happens to the water!

in some more traveling news, i plan on living this winter at the south pole. more info about that later.

so, since it’s been some time, i’m gonna show the trivia standings. here they are:

jon rolling – 7.5
sanjog gopal – 4.5
nathan burkhart – 4
erin zaletel – 4
amy smith – 3
adam smith – 2
aj belshe – 2
maia hoelzinger – 2
chris spencer – 1
greg benezra – 1
sean bell – 1
jaclyn backhaus – .5
darren nakamura – .5
cassie fronzo – .5

i’ve decided that i’ll mail someone a prize once they reach 13 points, and at that point, i’ll reset the scores and start again. and then the first to get 13 after the reset will get a prize. and so on and so forth. so it’s still anyone’s game. i’ll post the answers to the questions once someone reaches 13.

anyway, i think that’s all for now folks. i’ll try and update at least once a week since i work now and don’t have as much free time as i used to.

In what year was the first U.S. Census?
