|I had a rather interesting drive to work today. It was full of epiphanies… I don’t wanna call them “things I’ve learned” yet because I haven’t had time to weigh their truth. I guess they’re more of, “thoughts that just happen to run through my mind while I was driving to work earlier today.” Thus start the epiphanies.
1. The world is against me going to work.
2. I still kind of wish I was a doctor or something, way in the back of my mind
3. Being stuck at a railroad crossing can be kind of enjoyable…
4. Nobody cares about school zones.
Dunyayi Kartaran Adam – The Best Worst Movie Ever
So, I came across a bunch of old PUSO paraphernalia the other day. Lots of videos and pictures, and lots of stuff from last board meetings and such.
And of course, being the old fart I am, I got nostalgic.
Last board meetings were the greatest. I once asked one of my old directors (which cuts the possibilities to exactly four people) what last board meeting was and they said, “It’s not really a meeting. There’s no work, and everyone gets spoiled.” And yes, that’s basically what happened. It sounds kinda weird I guess, but we all sit around giving each other presents and letting people know just how cool they are/can be. I think it’s a much needed thing sometimes… (I also think people need to be told that they’re idiotic too, though.) I guess it’s kinda what Christmas morning should be, at least in my mind. Because everyone gives presents that weren’t necessarily expensive, but were worth alot in terms of thought and work that went into preparing them.
I always loved giving a good presentation, one that just made people say wow… and when you looked in their faces you could totally see they appreciated it. Like that end of the year board video that nobody ever saw again after the last board meeting cuz I was too broke at the time to even afford CD-Rs and so I’m sorry everyone. (But if you’re out there Episode XVI, and want a copy for some reason, email me… or myspace me or friendster.. and I’ll get you one.) In my mind, it was just something small I could give you guys to say thanks for the amazing year you gave me. You know, all the work we did but didn’t have to… that didn’t really feel like work at all, not to me anyway.
Oh and after the last board meeting we went ice-blocking… down the now non-existent student center hill… *sigh*
EDIT:Speaking of puso, look what I found…

dude, you know your blog titles are starting to sound like Harry Potter Chapter names.
lol. you have amongst the most interesting journal entries, Earl.
anyway…interesting/funny story that just happened within one minute of me writing this comment.
I’m in my dad’s medical office, in his actual office-office on the computer.
And I’m reading your journal entry and just as I finish reading it, I randomly look at this bookshelf across the office room and on the third shelf down, what do I see?
Two boxes of samples of LUNESTA.
How ironic…and how fitting.
Basically, I felt an Earl-presence in the room.
An aura if you will.
hahahaha. Ok. well, I hope that didn’t come off awkwardly.
and if it did, just dismiss it as…um, something dismissible.
Room to muthafckin Improv! RTmfI!
