Too small for big kids, unfortunately. :-/

Every Friday afternoon conversation I have with my co-workers

Co-worker: Got any plans for the weekend?
Me: I'm playing Dungeons & Dragons* with some friends.
Co-worker: [laughs]
Me: Um...I wasn't kidding.

* Replace "playing D&D" with "going to Dragon*Con / the comic book store" or pretty much any other geeky (fun!) thing I do in my free time, and the reaction is the same.

A story and a video

When I was an RA at Georgia Southern, one of the most repetitive tasks we had to do every summer was checking each and every dorm room to make sure that nothing was missing, damaged, stained, etc. This usually involved teams of two walking through the room, one person calling out various problems while the other wrote them down on a triplicate form that would later be verified by the residents. The majority of the time, I would write either "clean" or "good" down the entire row, unless there was an obvious problem to notate.

Now, I don't know if you've ever written the word "good" literally hundreds (if not thousands) of times in a row, but after a while it starts to look completely nonsensical. Hence, the switching up between the two equally bland adjectives.

You might be wondering what brought up this little tangent (especially after such a long absence from blogging). Well, here it is:

About 30 seconds in, I started thinking to myself, "Is that really how you pronounce 'Michael'? It sounds so weird..." but then after that I didn't care as much because, hey! it's the Coreys!

And now I really want to watch The Lost Boys again. That movie was rad and those vampires did not sparkle.
