After being engaged a mere three days ago, I found myself watching Thor, reminiscing on prior visits to the home of my beloved, Meggan, and I think Agent Colson's words haunt me the most.
"Thank you for your cooperation."
A mere sentence should not be able to provoke this amount of bitterness, but it serves to remind me that, as I begin to closely examine our congress, house of representatives, and the senate, it seems that very few plans proposed in the name of security are accomplishing their intended purposes.
It is with the same phrase held by Phil Colson that we "stood back" and let them "keep us safe" by taking away our rights, one by one ...
And now on a slightly happier tangent, as I said previously, I have recently become engaged to the wonderful Meggan Schindler, my long time friend for longer than I can remember. It makes me immensely happy as very little has been successful at puncturing my happiness, a rather rare occurance for those of you who know me, and it certainly never lasts this long.
Not entirely sure when the date is going to be, but when I know, you'll inevitably know.
Started up Dance Central 2 and the Xbox stuff again, trying to get back into fitness in an attempt to keep that happiness adrift, partly because of the endorphins fitness naturally releases during and after, mostly because I'm tired of being 330 lbs of "God he'd look so much better if he worked out and choked down a fresh green salad every once in a while."
Honey Mustard is far too delicious for its own good.
I'm earnestly considering heading back to college, mostly so I can engage in social behavior along with being able to discuss things of a learning matter with people close to being on my level. No, I'm not callingout anyone as dumb, but rather the company I tend to keep has a habit of being butt tons smarter than I am (eg. Jesse whose ridiculously booksmart on all things science, Meggan whose IQ simply dwarves my own, not to mention most of my friends keep way more current on political and international affairs than I ever cared to.), but it's still nice to be able to bat around the one thing I'm actually well read on, but has trivial real life applications (Or, at least, won't land me a job):
I like to think it's the spirit of debate that keeps me alive for the most part, only countered by my ineptitude as far as my ability to communicate in the English language. I probably should consider myself a primary speaker of English and a secondary of body language, but, it is what it is.
Nothing new on the job front, Gamestop is unlikely to hire me back but I figure that may matter less as a moving of location is most likely in order for ... Obvious reasons.
I don't suppose I have much more to riff on this end, but I figured I'd let you all know I'm still alive and well. Expect more regular updates in the future.
