I have to think of a word for effective public speaking that I can write an entire speech on. Rob already called "Christianity" so I can't do that. I was thinking of maybe doing "conservatism" or "socialism" or "liberalism". I could say a lot about those but the instructor wants this speech to be serious and not a joke like we made the last one. Even though the class is a joke. So if anyone comes up with a good word, go ahead and leave it in the comment box.
I got my truck stuck yesterday by the Great Miami River. I was seriously getting worried about not getting it out. My dad and I were fishing and we went down to a spot that apparently had just recently been under water. We decided not to fish there but I couldn't stop myself from trying to destroy my truck. I dropped it into a small "lake" that was probably about 3 feet deep. The four wheel was in so it wasn't a problem but then it dropped again suddenly and both of the front tires were covered and one of the rear tires was caught in a rut. I panicked, put it into first, and floored it. Needless to say I threw mud all over my truck and didn't move at all. I stopped to think for a second, then I put it into reverse and luckily one of the back tires was still on decent ground and the posi-track was able to pull me out. My truck looks awesome now.
Kenan emailed me back and told me how much Europe loves Kerry. Apparently, there is no such thing as "conservatives" over there and he is enjoying not having to argue with anyone like us. He also said that he can vote on an absentee ballot.
If you see Horgan tell her to quit her job.

So I'm at school and Davie and I are not not skipping class. I've decided to go ahead and update my blog. Me and Dave were just discussing the most overated movies of all time. This is subject to change because I'm just pulling these out off top of my head. Feel free to comment and suggest replacements, additions, or movement within the ranks.
1. Titanic- There's no reason this made as much money as it did.
2. Pearl Harbor- Tons of potential, zero quality
3. It's A Wonderful Life- Makes me wanna gouge my eyes out with a blunt object
4. Apocalypse Now- Another movie with enough budget to be awesome but screwed up with a terrible storyline
5. Full Metal Jacket- What was this?
6. Grease- I hate Jon Travolta
7. The Harry Potter series- ok movie, but way overrated
8. The Adam Sandler Movies except Happy Gilmore- talk about a an actor playing the same part over and over again
9. All of the Austin Powers movies- dumb
10. Jurassic Park II and III- the first one was sweet, shoulda stopped there/ they're about to make another one about how the government uses the dinosaurs as secret weapons
11. Gone With the Wind- Wow. How this movie got so huge I'll never know.

U Conn has beaten Duke and Dougie is victorious. Unfortunately, I owe Austin 50 dollars from spring break so I'll never get to hold the money in my hands.

School is way better this quarter. It's so easy that I'm feeling guilty for the classes I'm taking. So I dropped one of the moron classes I'm in for a more difficult political science class. So I'll have it tomorrow for the first time. Hopefully the professor hasn't gotten far into the class yet. If he's a jerk I'll just pick up the class I was in before.

I got the job with Delhi Township. It pays $8.55 an hour and I was garunteed 40 hours a week. Plus its 7am to 4 pm everyday Mon-Fri. So I won't have to worry about my schedule changing. Also, its an outdoor job and everyone knows that maitenance people stand around do nothing most of the time so I should fit in pretty good. I can't wait to tell the people at Dick's that I'm not working this summer. To bad I can't screw them over or anything because I'll probably come back during the school year if I'm still at UC.

10 years since the world was robbed of Kurt Cobain's music. I had the pleasure of watching Unplugged today. Cobain was truly a genius. The world will never again know a musician of his calibur. (Especially with the direction music is headed today).

I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
But I have a light
The day is done
But I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Or maybe just happy
