S'more Fun Pleaze!

(above picture: me camping last summer)

So tomorrow I'm leaving for a VERY brief camping trip (seriouzly, it's gonna be for 3 days) Camping? Not really. The only reason I can get away with calling it that is because my family's staying at a State CAMPground (see what I just did there?)
I get to sleep on an air mattress inside a lean-to (for all y'all non-campers, it's like a cabin with a side missing) And even though I won't have internet access, I do have the solitare on my ipod!!!! So no complaints here.

Anywayz, I'm very excited about this camping trip because I'm gonna get to make smoressssss!!!! I can't even explain how pumped I am about this. S'mores are the sweetest thing ever (lololol pun very much intended) That is why S'mores poptarts are the best kind.



Lately I've been thinking deeply about the meaning of life and how much control we have over our ~*DeStInYYyY*~ (if we have a destiny at all!) I turned to some of the greatest philosophers of all time: Neitzche, Rousseau, Sartre, Aristotle...to no avail. The only person who truly gave me a solid course of action, the opportunity to play an active role in my future, has been George Costanza.

His philosophy, developed towards the end of season 5 of his discourses "Seinfeld", is based on the concept of conciously ignoring your intuition. If you're unhappy, it's because nothing ever goes your way. If you do the OPPOSITE of everything you would usually do, you will become the OPPOSITE of unhappy (happy, just to make sure you're paying attention)

Maybe I'm not explaining this clearly enough. In that case, watch his motivational video and discover the secret that will change your life.

Growing Up Wu-Tang

Behold! The Wu-Tang Clan.
It honestly makes my heart swell with pride that the Clan was formed on "Shaolin"(or Staten Island, New York) How many people can say that Ghostface Killah grew up next to them!? Not that many! Staten Island isn't THAT big. And most people who live here probably haven't even heard of The Wu-Tang Clan because they're all very Italian and listen to Frank Sinatra and their kids listen to whatever's on Z100 or any album sold in Hot Topic. And further more, most Staten Island natives never leave the few square miles where they were born, let alone go near the housing developements that many of the Wu-Tang Clan members grew up in. End rant.

Although I'm the first to admit that I don't live the "thug life" I do really love the Wu-Tang Clan as a whole and their music and the fact that something prolific was created in a place that most people forget about when thinking of New York City.


Can we all take a minute to appreciate one of the biggest silver foxes on the planet, Matthew Gray Goobz? Not only is he totally precious, (see above pic) he also has a great sense of humor! This is absolutely essential to being considered a silver fox, because otherwise you're just some dude who has nothing but his good looks to rely on. And let's be honest, there are very few men who are hotties for their entire lives (scott baio anyone? what happened there?)

Check out his unauthorized documentary on the set of criminal minds. What a charmer!

You can check him out on his website (and if you look carefully you can find him singing the golden girls theme song!!!), or stalk him on his myspace.
