I'm gonna marry the night.
I'm gonna marry the night.
Testing, 1...2...3. I had to do that because the last couple of times didn't work. I typed up these long entries and only to find out that I couldn't save them. I think I had to do with my work laptop. My personal laptop is out of commission. It has been out of service since spring of this year. I have been living off of the work laptop and my phone. The work laptop can only do so much. I pretty much lost all my songs and pictures. Oh well, I think I've learned my lesson about the importance of backing up. A guy from ITS gave me a "new" hard drive but he never came back to replace it. I did go to Apple but they said it will be much cheaper to bring it to an authorized service vendor. I never got around to doing it. One of these days, I need to get it done. I miss my computer. It's either getting it fixed or dropping a couple grand to get a new one. I would rather spend that money on something else. The hike in the Catskills was quite long. We got picked up at 7AM and got dropped off at 9:30PM. Our guide was able to drop us all off at our desired intersections. I think that was the highlight of the day. Surprisingly, I was not aching the next day or the day after. Chi Mai was the leader of the pack going up but she was the cause of some bottlenecks coming down. Honey Boo Boo did an excellent job considering it was his first hike. Dat and I are off to our missionary work this weekend. Keep on the lookout for an Obama supporter preaching to the masses.
Please note that I did not write the following passage. It was taken from an unknown insider within the EU. English has always been known as the hardest language to learn to speak because of all of the differences such as words spelled the same, pronounced the same, but meant different things such as "to", "too" and "two". The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English". In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c".. Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter. There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f".. This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter. In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away. By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v". During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi bl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi TU understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru. Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.
Oh hello, October.
