I am the Coolest Guy Ever

Wednesday, December 14th, 2005

Last wednesday I made the coolest purchase ever.

Heely's Laser

That’s right, those shoes with the wheels on them that you see 8 year olds riding around on are available in adult sizes.

What. Yes I realize maybe a 25 year old guy shouldn’t be into 8 year old kid fads, but these are shoes with wheels on them. This has to be the greatest innovation in shoe technology since nike invented the sneaker!

What? Okay so I get strange looks rolling around Best Buy in them. But it’s just jealousy. I swear.

Screw you guys.

The Neverending Hospital Trip

Sunday, December 4th, 2005

So I woke up today short of breath. Chills and coughing I can handle. Not being able to breathe worries me a bit. I decide to go to see a doctor.

My doctor is closed of course, since it’s Sunday. I call around a bunch of general practitioners and they’re all closed too. So I do what I figure most people do on Sundays, go to a hospital.

I’m feeling kind of guilty going to the Emergency Room, since this isn’t really, in my opinion, an emergency. But when I get there at 8:52am there’s no one else around so I figure not being able to breathe is a good enough excuse to be there. they write SOB (shortness of breath I hope) on my slip and send me in right away.

7 hours, a chest xray, CT scan, intravenus antibiotics, ungodly number blood tests, diabetes test, and $2750 later, I’m discharged from the hospital.
Plus I have to pay whatever they charge for the chest x-ray, which they’re going to bill separately, and $145 in prescriptions.

Christmas is officially cancelled.

Yay for being the only first world country in the world without socialized medicine.

Forest Stump

Friday, December 2nd, 2005

Okay so I missed a few days of photos, I was sick.

I was still sick today, when I destroyed the neighbors tree stump by means of a chainsaw, a stump grinder, a shovel, and a pickaxe.
In the foreground is the chainlink fence which hopefully, now that the stump has been removed, will be replaced by a wood fence. In the background is not the stump, it is a big chunk of the stump which I stuck all the tools into to create a triumphant piece of modern art. The stump itself was at least 3x bigger than that thing.
