What was I doing one month ago?

I was in New York City, leading my NYC virgins along the southern edge of Central Park on the way back to Times Square and their subway station so they could get back to Brooklyn.

Conflicting Interests

Sorry for being a stranger.

The problem I'm facing right now is that I have a blog for a class that I'm required to post to on a regular basis. The entries on this blog are generally class-related, but still, they sap a good deal of my creative blogging juices. Also, very few funny/interesting/tragic things have happened in my life recently that seem worthy of a blog post.

Still, I'll give it the old college try.

- In Best Buy, I watched a man decked out in Wranglers, oversized belt buckle, and cowboy hat briefly scan the new DVD releases before grabbing "Delta Farce" and walk directly to the register.

- I had a conversation in which we discussed how dirty Disney movies really are. For example, the refrain of The Little Mermaid classic "Under the Sea":

"Under the sea
Under the sea
Darling it's better
Down where it's wetter
Take it from me"


" Each little clam here
know how to jam here
Under the sea
Each little slug here
Cuttin' a rug here"

And so on.

- For my class, we have to make a "vlog" post, which is essentially a blog post in video form. My idea for the video was to investigate dog fighting in Lawrence with a visit to the local Humane Society. I would ask various questions about dog fighting and film puppies playing while uttering phrases such as "Chilling..." and "I can...I can hardly watch..." At some point, I would want to fade the screen to red, possibly superimpose a skull over the puppies scene, complete with the appropriate sound effects. At some point Conan's Evil Puppy would make a cameo. It would have been hilarious, yet poignant and maybe even educational.

Instead, we're doing a piece on how people are rude in KU parking lots.
