Mammoth rants, Marian rants, hey, it’s all good, right? Today’s topic is very important, and most of you have probably been affected by it in one way or another, possibly traumatically. Reading this rant might just change your life forever. Or… not. I’m talking, of course, about dogs, and dogs that own people. You have seen them. You have probably been annoyed by them, just as I was 2 days ago. It started innocently, with me taking the trash out. I got almost to the end of the driveway, when I notice in the neighbors yard, running as fast as it’s short little stumpy legs would carry it, a small dog. Looking surprisingly similar to the RCA dog. Not only […]

ROTD XXVI: California

Yup, I’m back. But where did I go, many of you may be asking. I spent the last 3 days traveling to/in/getting out of California. In specific, San Jose and that area, for my grandpa’s funeral, among other things. The trip, of course, was quite interesting, so you all get to hear about it (aren’t you lucky?) Let’s see… We start at 8 or so at night on Thursday. I had been up since about 6 at that point, had taken 2 finals, moved a ton of stuff to my car, and hadn’t eaten much. But I was out for Spring Break, so Life Was Good. Dinner came in the form of the spaghetti I made a while back, which […]

ROTD XXV: Pictures

Ok, this isn’t a rant, really, but hey. It’s been a strange day… On one hand, I had to do a bunch of work in preperation for finals. That was bad. But then it got better. Tired of being uncomfortable, and needing more furniture for my room, I went for a drive home (didn’t hurt that today was a nice day). Whereupon I got involved with looking at old family pictures with Mom. This was, of course, very entertaining (I thought so, at any rate). It did look sort of strange seeing pictures of my grandparents when they were really young, not to mention baby pictures of my mom. Not to mention various random pictures of people from like the […]

ROTD XXIV: Labeling

Right. I have something of a headache (I knew at the time that having pepper jerky for breakfast was a stupid plan, but hey), so I snagged this unopened bottle of Aleve. Upon opening it, I realized 2 things: There was an instruction manual, the bottle was short, stumpy, and looked altogether strange, and that there was a label you could peel off. Curious, I peeled the label. Which is actually some sort of (get this) restickable label, and has 3 sides filled with tiny print warnings and things. Then I looked at the instructions. This is great. Two pages, small print, with directions on how to open the bottle (duh) and (I love this) how to peel and repeal […]

ROTD XXIII: New Year’s Day

How not to spend New Year’s Day. Lessee… hafta begin this one on New Year’s Eve, whereupon I had a massive headache, crashed at 7pm, woke up at 11, and was up until 5:30 or so. Which was really bad, since I had to be in Corvallis by 10 to go to Portland (2 hour drive). I somehow managed to get up, make it to my car, and get into Monroe, only to realize that not only was the gas station NOT open, but I had no gas to go anywhere. So I went home and borrowed mom’s car. Which is a 1998 Mustang GT. See where this is going yet? Yup. Marius is in a hurry, and he has […]
