Ladies and gentleman, and whoever reads this, I'd like to introduce you to my fish........
I bought them yesterday. I bought three actually. One was a black goldfish (seriously). I named him Jack Bauer. He died this morning. Out of all three fish, he's the one that bit the dust. It is quite ironic if you think about it. We had a nice funeral for him. We folded him in a nice paper towel and set him in the trashcan. But alas, I have two fish left. The big one on the left is Tony Almeda. If you are 24 fans, you'll realize I'm creating a pattern here. The small little guy on the right is Compadre. He's pretty chill. I hope they both make it through the night. If not, it's off to Petsmart tomorrow to purchase more $0.26 fish!

So today I was in my laundry room and behind a basket of clothes I find this dead bug. I started thinking about this poor carcass and what it's, and other such insect's, ironic life entailed. So lets think about it. Let's tell the story of this bug.
Once upon a time there was a bug. He was meandering outside in the dark cold, looking for shelter and food. Suddenly what does he see but a warm, cozy house. He jumps with his many legs in the air yelling, "Now I am saved!!! I shall live! I will have warmth and shelter and an endless supply of dust mites and other such deliciousness to eat!!"
So our dear little bug looks and looks for a way to get into the house. After hours of hard searching, he finds a small crack somewhere and mossies on inside. Looking around he is overwhelmed by the greatness of the house. With it's spacious rooms, warm corners, and small cookie crumbs, it is everything he could dream of and more. During his amazing adventures in this new and exciting world he comes upon a strange landmark. There are walls of colorful and fluffy fabrics. He crouches in the dark, hiding from a giant specimen who takes off one of those fabric things from it's foot, and throws it on top of the giant pile. Intrigued, our little friend keeps his eye on this strange piece of fabric. The color of this fabric is slightly discolored. Suddenly a strange odor touches the smell receptors of the small bug. He sneezes. What a strange sensation this odor is causing in his head! The bug realizes that he cannot breathe! The perilous odor is trying to rip out his insides! Coughing and gasping for air, his legs collapse and he rolls on his back. He kicks his legs, struggling for life! And then, with a small twitch, he lets out his last breath. He is dead.
So my friends, the moral of this sad sad story is this. Be grateful for what God gave you! You can search for bigger and better things your whole life and sometimes when you think you've found one, turns out it's nothing but a dirty sock. :) So make the best of what you've got. Also, bugs are stupid.
Well, peace out for now!

So here it is. My first Blog. I've never been interested even slightly in blogs, blogging, or such things that have to do with the word 'blog'. And yet today I thought to myself, "Blogs will let me do cool things like..........." That's where my thought ended. So here I am, writing my first post. I know many of you are excited. In Popple Magazoon, I was listed as #1 on the "People who should most have a blog" list. I felt I was actually taking something away from blog readers. I've made it my goal in life to be a giver, so I knew I needed to change my non-blogging ways. So, here's is what I think all of you should expect to read in the future: I will be posting my many thoughts. Some stupid, some hilarious, some dramatic....and so on. I will also talk a lot about music and the new bands and songs that I discover. This does not mean that none of you have discovered them or love them already. I just want everyone to know when I have the great privilege of doing so. I will also talk about books. I don't read a LOT, but when I find something I love, I really really want to talk about it! I will be talking a lot about movies and tv. I live through entertainment, so it's something to be expected. And that's that! I hope you all have enjoyed my first post and are looking forward to future postage. :) Peace out!
