Financially crippled myself for the next month with a pair of D&G jeans today. If no-one else but me touches my genitals within the next 28 days whilst wearing them, i will ardently bark for my money back.
Are you stuck in a dead end job? Are you squandering the precious gift of life in front of the idiot box? Are you on your third beer of the evening? Well maybe it's time you joined the exciting field of monorail conducting at the Lanley Institute!
It was temp. Polednice boycotted for the entirety of the temp ban. It was quite sweet of him.
This morning on the tram on the way to school in I came up with is amazing pattern in my head played by wind instruments and thought "Oh my god this thing I have thought up is fantastic! I must use it my orchestral composition that I have to write soon!" I had the motif repeating in my head until I got to school where I immediately went to one of the practise rooms and played it on the piano. Then I said "What?! This is the opening of Steve Reich's Variations for Winds, Strings and Keyboards!!!"
Such is the life of a composer in a world where the best tonal music has already been written.
In eight days, I'll get on the seat of my 2010 Trek 1.2 Alpha Road Bike and do a Half-Century (50 miles, at least) or a Metric Century if I'm feeling really sporty (i.e.: 100 kilometers). If it works out as planned, it'll be the best "season-opening" on the two-wheeler since I was a high-schooler.
This season, I want to see if I can work my way up to the "City-to-Shore" run (which is 75 miles).

I personally read it with a tone of levity.
Had a funny conversation/argument with my girlfriend last night...it was only funny to me because she overreacted so much. So here is the script!
Girlfriend: What if I died tomorrow?
Me: That would be very sad.
GF: Huh??? That's it?? You wouldn't try and come visit me or anything??
Me: Well if I had enough money to fly to Australia of course I would do my best to get there on time assuming that I knew that you were going to die tomorrow.
GF: I wouldn't care about money, if I knew you were going to die I would do my best to come visit you no matter what.
Me: I know you would babe, but sometimes our best isn't good enough either...
GF: What do you mean?
Me: If I was going to die tomorrow I can almost 100% guarantee you that you wouldn't make it on time.
GF: I would make it on time! Because I would try my hardest and best and get to you on time before you died!
Me: Ok...well how are you going to do that?
GF: Because I have money for school but I wouldn't use it for school I would use it to get to you.
Me: Ok, but how are you going to get a US Visa?
GF: I can just go down there and get it. Then it takes about a week to approve!
Me: ......but I'm dead tomorrow.
GF: I would know weeks ahead of time if you are going to die tomorrow because you would be in the hospital.
Me: Oh ok got it.
GF: I'm disappointed...you wouldn't even come visit me if I were going to die tomorrow and you would never see me again
Me: Babe you asked me a question..and I answered it realistically.
GF: ITS NOT REALISTIC! If you really love someone you would do whatever you can to go and see them!
Me: I know babe, but it is realistic because if I found out you were going to die tomorrow there is no way on earth I could raise enough money in time to come visit you. The plane ride alone is 16 hours, not to mention airport time. I would need to raise all that money in about 2 hours....
GF: If you really cared you would have been saving up this whole time.
Me: So......I should always have 1400-1600 dollars in my account just in case I somehow know that you are going to die tomorrow??.....
GF: you disappointed me babe.
Me: Ok I'm sorry...I thought this wasn't that serious of a topic..I thought you were joking.
GF: What? Why would I be joking about death, it is serious!
I don't remember, the convo kind of trailed off after that.
Your girlfriend seems like she's ripe for the stealing, violadude.
