    No, not the movie, though that rocks. You should rent that. It is a movie, released in 1964 about three american surfers who went around the world in search of the perfect wave. Cop that. Anyway, you know my steez. Here comes the ramble.

    Summer's coming. As far as the weather's concerned, it's here already. 90?! Time for slippers and shorts fo shnozo. But one thing bothers me. All year most of us are busy as hell. Depending on your preference or need, there's school, or work, or drug use. That just takes up so much time. If you can afford to stop working for a while, take vacations, or even weekend trips, I usually see two choices: either spend it lounging or spend it doing. After working at whatever all year, sometimes you just want to relax, but for me that gets old at like the second week in. I tried to teach myself a while ago that if I was bored, it was probably my fault. I need something to do. Get up and go juice! I like projects in general. The word project tacked on to anything makes it sound more important. "What are you doing now?" "Oh I'm about to take part in the Shower Project, then I think I'll whip up some Breakfast Project!"

    This is on my mind partly because of the "things you always wanted to do thread". I want to carve a walking stick, paint a series of huge wooden boards I found, install things, try to surf, photo documentary of things I've stepped in, more more get some ideas ideas blahblahblah. Anyone out there feel this way, or am I eating the pepperoni and pepperjack cheese by myself?

    at least ride the bike to work.

    I've got some serious work to do one the bike.
    The whole handlebar is comming off, to be replaced with
    a much thinner one. All the better to squeeze through trafic.

    what kine sammiches you like?
    i'll bring da pahty tah you

    this one board is crapping out.
    i love painting on wood specifically because (it's free and...) with a thin layer, the wood design still shows through. however when i fuck up and have to put a second coat of paint on, it defeats the dang purpose.

    almond popsicle bars!
    weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    as the summer dawns on us i cant help but be reminded of some simple things:

    -THE WORST FUCKING ALLERGIES (this one is great, if you like to colect snot, but other than that it sucks)
    -Working 40 ish hours a week so i can afford school
    -getting the biggest frapachino (caramel) that starbucks sells and enjoying it on my 1 hour lunchbreak
    -getting summer paychecks
    -shopping always fun in the summer for some reason
    -Painting (anything, fr8's especially)
    -walking with dry feet (i always have wet feet in the winter)
    - and finally to be able to get drunk on a beach, pass out sleep wherever...and not haveing to worry about dying of pheunmonia(sp?)


    how about yours ?

    Oh yeah, late summer nights with girls ummmmmm hell yes

    basically that's the idea vanity. i didn't make it clear i guess.

    as a kid my cousins and i would usually pick one project to work on all summer and i try to keep it up in my old age. we built a large fort once that took us all summer. saved money, went to home depot, nails, hammers, the works. it eventually got turned into a tool shed, then a weight bench, now a dog house. another time we tried to build a canoe...failed. collect Marvel comic cards, blah blah. nevermind.
