Things I Do that Aggrevate People..

OUT & ABOUT:

— When jogging, I like to make special trips through fast food restaurants parking lots. I won’t say anything to potential customers. I think my very presence, speaks on them on many levels. Once in a while,  a car will pull out of the drive thru, most likely over come with with guilt.  What?? I can’t help that’s it own my jogging course.

— I wave hello to random people, that I don’t know.

— Sometimes I walk to the beat of the music, and (sometimes I silently have a soundtrack in my head)

AT HOME:

— When I sneeze, I say: “Excuse me, Bless Me, Thank you”.  Cuts out the middle man.. If I said “You’re Welcome” then I would be considered sorta weird

— I used plastic-ware, so that I will never technically have to do the dishes, because technically I never dirty up any dishes. Saves water right?

IN THE CAR:

-If driving, and you go to sleep on me, I’ll slam on breaks and start screaming

-If in the passenger side, I normally attempt to strangle myself at the stop lights

– If in the back of car, I will rock the car at the stop lights, by grab both “Oh SHIT” handle and shifting my weight

AT THE GYM:

–If I’m asked how many sets I have left, I usually give an super high number like 15

–I switch the Time Elapsed to Time Remaining, so that people wont stand behind when my time is almost up.

Don’t Complain about FOOD COST: WENDY’s

Ok so… I went to Wendy’s today to get a little food. I like Wendy’s, it’s on the few fast food places that I like to eat, mostly because I can get a decent sized grilled chicken sandwich, a baked potato and a low calorie drinking option for a decent price. But I’m not here to praise Wendy’s,  I’m here to inform you how unpractical, and unreasonable some of their practices are, well just mainly one, but I’m sure they have more…

I dined in, ordered my usual order(see above), and after my meal, was tucked away in the bottomless pit I call a stomach, I went back up to get a re-fill. I told the guy what I had to drink and handed him my cup, without the lid. Instead of him taking the cup and re-filling my drink, he grab a completely brand new cup, and new lid only to give me the same drink again. There was no need for him to waste another cup, wasting paper and plastic in the process.

The reason why this sorta bothers besides the fact that it’s wasteful and bad for the environment, is that I know soon then later, Wendy’s is going to raise the prices of all is items on the menu, to cover OPERATING cost. Well guess what Wendy’s you are the one that’s causing your own demise by, giving customers another cup for a refill on a drink. How SILLY… what is my CUP contaminated? To many germs.. WHAT?

Good Grief..

Out of Gas…

Hi all, 

Well some of you may have read about, or experienced the recently gas scare with Hurricane Ike, and the shutting down of the refineries in Texas.  Well I am here to inform you all that my city, Tallahassee, FL has ben affected the worst by this.

We did make National News, from Yahoo and the Associated Press, about the prices that some of the gas stations hit here in Tally. Some places going as far as 5.50 per gallon of gas. You can read the entire article here. Hurricane Ike felt from a far.. 

But unlike most please around the US that suffered from this scare, we haven’t recovered yet. WE BARELY HAVE ANY GAS in the city. Seriously each day, there are maybe 3-4 gas stations across the city that have gas for a couple of hours if at all and then that’s it. They only have regular Unleaded(so if you have a luxury car that “requires” Premium, you are out of luck. Most of my classmates are riding on fumes, and will not be attending class because they can’t.  I need to take a picture, but all of the stations remove their prices from the signs and wrap all of the tanks in yellow caution tape.  Apparently if we don’t get gas soon, we will make national news again for this fiasco most likely rioting will ensue.. 

For once I wish i was exaggerating. This is absolutely insane. Even the big boys such as Sam’s Club and Costco, can’t get gas the city to the consumers, how can the BP’s Chevon’s do it. 

I personally just so happen to fill up last Wed before this, just on the whim, that well I needed gas. I am bless to have done so, but my tank in my car(I love my Honda), is only but so big. It’s scary to actually see how dependent we have become on gas, and how big is plays a part in our every day living.

PS. SEND ME SOME GAS.

I Heart Hurricanes

No NO really I do. I’ve been waiting for a decent Hurricane to hit ever since I moved to FL. We received 0 last year, up here in the Panhandle, which by the way did I mention is really more like South GA, as far as weather goes( it snow for about 5 mins last year).  The Hurricane season is reaching it’s peak and things are finally starting to get exciting again.  Tropcial Storm aka Boomerang Faye actually came up the coast and hit Tallahassee..WHOOO..  I know it was only a tropical storm, not a true hurricane and we only got 3 days of rain, but some decent flooding.

In fact is flooded so much that some of my classmates were on the Weather Channel and, actually had to stay with me for about 7 days. Hi JOHN CONTORE… Yes I can now add ” Shelter to Refugees to the list of my chariable work for the world.

Anywho, with Hurricane Ike is already a Cat 4 with a few more days to go, before it his the lower part of the peninsula (some where around Miami), people are all in a flutter here. They don’t know where is will go after that, maybe up the coast to Tallahassee.. Old Hurricane Hanna is headed for my home, in the Carolina’s.. Moms not ever at at worried.. We’ve seen and experience our fair share of Hurricanes.. believe me.

I know, I’m crazy, I’m sick, think of me as a current day radical Storm Chaser.. just without the ummm chasing.. I’m more of a wind guy myself. Something about high winds excite me. I’ve never been a big fan of Hurricane parties but they can be rather interesting esp when people from the far North, or Midwest are going through their first hurricane…. Precious…

So YEAH… bring on the STORMS.. and go Noles..

Vitamin Water: The Female Gatorade

Vitamin Water, aka V-DUB. Drink It. Love It. Tote it like you mean it. V-Dub, seems to be growing in popularity lately. An increasingly large number of women are drinking V-DUB, and slinging it back in style. I dont’ if anyone has noticed but Wal-Mart as of late has taken a liking to V-DUB, most stores now have what I like to call the the Liquid Rainbow. And for a buck each you can beat that, it’s cheaper than a 20oz SODA..

So exactly what is up with Vitamin Water. Why is it so attractive? People see Vitamin and think good for me, and they see Water and think good for me, so V-Dub is like drinking something that’s really really good for you, right.. LOL..  Its a better alternative than say Cola and Juice. Do all the super ingredients really live up to all the hype? I’m not here to attack that…not to day at least.

Couple with the fact that the bottles are stylish with the colors and the “super ingredients” each one contains, the V-Dub line with their tongue tingling names are a bunch of sexy drinks.

I’ve been drinking the stuff since 2005, a few bottles here and there, after I ventured to NYC. It wasn’t until I came to film school that, I began consuming V-Dub in large quantities. I don’t think I can function some days without it.

It’s just something about carrying around a pink(Focus) or orange (Essential)–(my favs) bottle of liquidity goodness that just cause people to stare and go “hmmmm”. I will tote my pink drink with pride, and will be sexy, because well I’m drinking sexy in a bottle.

So, I Picked up a Prostitute!

Ohh you know this is going to be a good one. I think it’s best told like this…

So I’m driving around my small little tranquil town. I mean a town so safe, we’ve had two murders in the past 25 years. Well I’m driving through a small community and I see a woman walking. And NOOOO i was not rubbe necking. She looked maybe if she was in her 30’s, dressed casually and walking. She had short black hair and walked with a little bounce. I had the windows down to let the breeze ruffle my hair err air out my car,when I pulled next to this walking lady. She waved and her arms spasmed in an attempt to stop me.

She asked me were I was headed and I told her I was running to the shopping center for my grandmother to pick up some milk and eggs etc.  She smile and said, they she really needed a ride to the store as well, to pick up some items for the kids. From this point, the market was about 3 miles, but completely doable. A woman with kids needing a ride. COME on people, how could I resist. She looked harmless, and so I told her that I would give her a ride. She thanked me and said that she would find another way back, or she would walk back.  She said was tired of walking and was so thankful that I drove by.

Well we don’t make it two blocks before she bombards me with the statement ” I wanna suck your C)*&, how much? I just want $20″. My eyes widen to the size of doughnuts and I look over at her. She unflenched, I slammed on the brakes, so hard the people walking on the sidewalk, got whiplash. Still in shock that (1 There is a hooker in my car. 2. I picked up that hooker.), I politely said “Ms please get out of my car” She continued with ” come on, $10 and I will suck your C@&*. Then firmly said ” LADY, get out of my car, NOW”. She smacked her lips and open the door and got out. I drove out, like bat outta hell, on acid.

I looked back in the rearview mirror, and she’s busy shaking her head and continues walking.  I begin to fuss myself out of course for being so STUPID. I wanted to drive back and tell her she ought to be ashamed or something,  but I knew it wasn’t my place, and nor was it going to be effective.

Me of all people.. ME..oh why me. I’m sure my high school class voted me as most likely to pick up a hooker, somewhere and I just didn’t realize it.  I ‘ve only picked up two people ever and one turns out to be a pay for play. And I know all of my guy readers are wondering, “DUDE, was she hot” and I will say “BRO, not really, but it didn’t really matter” regardless. Just not J’s style. LOL

So has any one else picked up a prostitute or have any hitchhiker stories they wanna share? Do you pick up people on a regular basis?

Collecting Coke Caps

Coke Caps

I’m known as the Coke Cap Guy at school,(gosh people do have to name everything). I’ve been collecting Coke Caps for several months now. What once started off as a selfish observation and goal to rack up on goodies has turned into a volunteer effort that’s catching fire. I am now collecting Coke Caps for the homeless. I use the points to to buy t-shirts that will go to shelters. I’ve been donating about 80-90% of all my points to this cause. I’ve kept 15% to get myself little keepsakes like a key-chain and cap, but I’m over that stuff now.

We go to school on a Coke Sponsored campus, which makes this process a little easier(All the drinks are COKE). It was this fact and the fact that all we seems to drink on set it Coke, that I decided to capitalize on this cola mine. Well if we are going to drink it, and the caps are going in the trash, might as well make the most of it.

Each cap with worth 3 point.

12-Pack box lids are worth 10 points

24- Pack box lids are worth 20 points

The only catch with the website, is that you can only enter 10 codes a day. So the we can earn as little as 30 points a day, and upwards to 200.

The cheapest T-shirts have been running at 160 points. Coke changes the products and there is a limited stock on some items, but we are trying our best.

So if anyone would like to send me Coke Caps/Or Box Lids I would deeply appreciate it. If you drink Coke Products(Coke, Powerade, Lemonade, Dasani, etc) regularly and can muster up a decent stash, I’ll be willing to pay for shipping. If you but them by the 12 pack, you it’ll be easy to drop the code in an envelope. So please anyone interested in helping, please let me know.

Update: 2/22/08–I still need more caps/boxes..
