EPISODE S7EVIN: TEH LONELY CHATROOM

"OUR HERO CLICKS ON THE CHAT TAB ON THE TOP OF OSN... AND SADLY, NOTHING... AGAIN."

Has anyone ever noticed that OSN has a chat room?  (It's under the "N" in "NETWORK.")  I go in there every time i login and don't find anyone there.  Has anyone even chatted in there as of yet?  SOMETIMES, i do find like one other person in there... but when i say hello or try to make contact... i get no response... that makes me a sad panda... OSN friends!  We need to get this poppin!  I'm trying to make new friends before the next Otakon so we can party rock in Baltimore this year!  I hereby propose that if you do login... stop in the chatroom and see if anything is going on... who knows... maybe you might be lucky enough to meet someone... anyone!!  Until next blog kiddos!

EPISODE FIVER: REFLECTIONS

"AS THE YEAR ENDS AND OUR HERO GEARS UP FOR ONE FINAL PARTY TO BID '09 FAREWELL... HE PAUSES TO REFLECT UPON A FEW THINGS."


Sorry about not updating... amongst the birthdays, Christmas, and MY 25th birthday... I haven't really had time to sit behind a computer and just blog... so heres my last one for this year!


This has been a hard year... I'm not going to lie.  I lost alot of things, but I like to think... it helped me to gain a few.  As the old addage goes, "Whatever doesn't kill us... can only make us stronger."  I believe that.  As a single Dad (yes, I am a dad... for those who didn't know) it's pretty tough to balance out being a father, and maintaining a social life.  But you know what... being alone isn't as bad as most would think.  Granted the Holidays are really really depressing when you see families and couples doing family and couples things.  I miss having my own family... I miss having my daughter and her mom there all the time.  But you know, things change... and people change... and we all can't have what we want... but you know what we can do?  Work toward being better.

And thats what 2010 is going to be for me.  Improvement... improving myself, physically and mentally.  Improve my overall quality of life.  I've lost that drive somewhere along the way... and I'm going to get it back one way or another... If you're reading this... Maybe you can be inspired to do the same as well.

Cause we're only here for one lifetime.  Don't waste it.  I'm sure as hell not gonna waste mine.

Happy New Years Everyone and Cheers!

EPISODE QUATTRO GELETTE RAZOR: I'm bizzack, and I WON BEST BLOG?!?!

"WE FIND OUR HERO RETURNING FROM A BRIEF VACTION, ONLY TO FIND OUT SOME EXCITING NEWS!"

First and foremost, I apologize for my absence from blogging.  I took a brief vacay and wasnt able to login and see whats going on.  So here I am, at my best friend LJ's house... and I just randomly hopped on his comp to check my email... and.... WOW!~

I see I have a message and an E-mail stating I won best blog for OSN!  OMGZ!!!!

TAKEN FROM THE MAIN OSN PAGE:
In each of the categories we were debating back and forth between multiple members and so the Admin's decision was the tie breaker (the blogs category was particularly tough, 4 members were running neck a neck, almost a coin flip)

THANK YOU SO MUCH OSN ADMINS/STAFF and to you, readers!  I don't really know who reads em but... THANK YOU!  I've been down on my luck lately but this really helped pick me back up!  I'll be sure to keep on blogging for your entertainment!

Now comes the choice of what to pick!  I'm leaning toward the NOIR: Complete Series, just cause its something new to watch!  Let me know what you'd pick!  In fact... if you're reading this... feel free to comment whatever or say anything! Get crazy!!!.... I'm super STOKED!!!!!!  RAWRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And again... THANK YOU!!!!!!!

EPISODE TRES: NOM NOM NOM!

"WE FIND OUR HERO DOING ONE OF HIS FAVORITE THINGS IN LIFE... EATING FOOOOD!!!"


You know what i really enjoy...?  Food... particularly asian food.  So much in fact... that I've taught myself how to make dishes I'm particularly fond of in an effort to save money.  Just recently I've learned how to make Pho Bo... (which is a Vietnamese Rice Noodle soup.)  I can make 5 bowls of Pho Bo at home... for the price it would to actually be if i went out and bought one bowl at a restaurant.  Granted, I take shortcuts and the quality might not be up to par... but i tend to like it... lol

I also love sushi... but I havent quite mastered it yet.  Or even "amatuered" it yet... lol.  Sushi, Sashimi and everything in between... is really a fine art.  Its not just rolling up rice, fish and nori... or balling up rice in your hand... It REALLY does require alot of patience, skill, practice... and in my case, luck.  All the way from selecting your ingredients... to the actual process of making it requires alot of prior knowledge.  It really truly is an artform and I admire sushi-chefs. 

But this wouldnt be a blog if i didn't b*tch about something right? =P

The only thing i find odd is large number of people my age and below taking a lack of interest in cooking.  Aside from sleep and water... food is essential to survival in everyday life... wouldnt you like to be more involved in what you put into yourself?  I'm not saying never go out and eat... (cause when i'm lazy mode, thats what I do, lol) but, who knows... maybe you might enjoy cooking.  I'll be honest.  I did it cause its how I unwind after work... and I've been told (by female sources) that nothing is hotter/sexier than a man in the kitchen.  YOU DECIDE!

Of course... i could always be wrong... (which i usually always am) =)

P.S. Give me ideas on what i should learn next... or any thoughts you might wanna add!

EPISODE DEUCE: TELL ME WHY...

"AS OUR HERO READS HIS FEMALE FRIENDS FACEBOOK STATUS UPDATES... HE REALIZES A FEW THINGS...."


Hello people who read my blog and new friends alike.  I Just wanna say I appreciate the nice comments people have been msging me and such, so thank you!

... and this one is for the ladies specifically...

I login to my facebook account and read these...

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, New Moon was EVERYTHING and MORE!! Team JACWARD!! Team EDCOB!! I'm so confused now!"

"New Moon was AMAZING!!! I am soooo torn between two lovers right now!! I love BOTH Jacob and Edward!!!! It was sooooooo goood! Ahhhh!!!"

"BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!"

Maybe I'm missing something here...What is with the infatuation with the... *sigh*... TWILIGHT movies/books.  Since when did vampires in love become cool?  Okay, I really shouldnt be saying anything considering that I refuse to watch/read any of the books, therefore I really shouldnt be passing any sort of judgement... Thats why I'm hoping someone... anyone... could explain to me this phenom thats apparently sweeping the nation.  Cause apparently, I'm not "getting it."  I'm already to the point i might actually watch a movie just to see what the hype is about.  (but only as a last resort) =P

So please... help a brotha out... Teach me how to love... (a vampire)

(BTW.... when did vampires join "teams?" GOD I'M LOST.)

EPISODE 1: CONTEMPLATING COSPLAY

"WE FIND OUR HERO STRUGGLING WITH THE AGE OLD QUESTION... WTF AM I GONNA COSPLAY AS AT THE NEXT OTAKON?!!"

I remember a long time ago when i had a thing called xanga.  I used to blog the *@!#*& outta that... but here i feel even more privileged to speak even more freely without fear of ridicule... as many of the people here share a similiar interest and probably inquire about the same things. So yes, it begins.

During my jog today with my best bud LJ, a good question was brought up.  What are we going to cosplay as next year at Otakon?  Granted its still a whiles away... I thought maybe this would be an amazing opportunity to do my initial cosplay.  But the question is... as what?  The ideas we had come up with were Resident Evil's Hunk, or Modern Warefare's Ghost... but TBH... that might be really really hot (I'm talking temperature-wise) to be wearing in July heat in Baltimore... So now the question remains... What will i be cosplaying as next year?

I wanna be...
a. Comfy
b. Sexy
C. Awesome
D. Amazing
E. Something i care about.

Of course its difficult to know what I'm into if you don't know me personally... but if you already had added me as a friend... you might already know that... so add away!  And help me plz!!! Thanks!!!  Until next time kiddos.

UPDATE: Ideas I've had.... Travis Touchdown from No more Heroes, Ikkaku from Bleach, or Chris Redfield in RE5.... hmmm decisions decisions.
