Remember the Jenkins

February 8th, 2006

My brother has been working very hard on his own blog. It has everything you could want in a blog: sinking ships, dramatic escapes, humorous anecdotes, safety tips, and much more. There's just one little snag to overcome...get other people to read it! So take pity on him and visit his blog:

Gerablog: The Only Place To Be

The magic number today is 4.

1. Embarassing Moment #6,488.

Today I went into _________ for the sole purpore of buying a nice shirt and tie. My old light blue one had been washed too many times and I was finally forced to admit that it was no longer light blue, but more of a sickening green. But as I was about to complete my purchase, I remembered that I also needed new shoes. So I asked the guy to bring out a specific model from the back. He did, and I started the process of trying them on. There was only one problem...and I didn't realize it until it was too late: I wasn't wearing socks (sandals), and I hadn't cut my toenails in...what I deduced to be 4,000 years. Yes, they were long...very long. I'm surprised I hadn't cut open the front of my shoes with these deadly knives I had at the end of my feet!

So anyway...word to the wise: If you're going to ignore cutting your toenails for a while, make sure you visit the Great Master Fungus so that he can teach you the lost martial art known as Flying Toes.

2. Memorable Quote.

Every once in a while one of my friends says something that I wish I could write down, because it characterizes their personality completely without adding more to it.

Ian's Memorable Quote of 2006: "When I'm rich and famous, I'm going to pay my wife to stay in shape."

3. The 20 deadly Sins.

Why is Gluttony one of the 7 deadly sins? Everybody is guilty of gluttony at some point or other in their lives, and it's definitely not good to eat constantly. But is it really so bad that it belongs in the top 7? I think Gluttony must have done a lot of butt-kissing in order to get into that top 7. Maybe it's the nephew of Wrath, or the cousin of Envy. At best, I put Gluttony at Top 20.

4. The Leeroy Jenkins Video.

There are heroes, and then there are HEROES. Leeroy Jenkins is without a doubt, a HERO. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then click on the link and watch in awe and amazement as Leeroy Jenkins defies those who will not be defied! Make sure you have your volume up.

It would be funnier if it was real, but whatever.

nah...after much research on the subject, I discovered that it was, in fact, staged. Basically a re-enactment of Leeroy Jenkins' past antics. Still funny, though.
