Laker Fever

I guess one could classify me as a bandwagon fan of the Lakers, though I like to believe I've always been a fan, just moreso under playoff circumstances. During the regular season of the season, there aren't real big stakes involved, so it's hard for me to get into the game.

But OH, come playoff time, I am a fired up fanatic. And I'm going to tell you now that Twitter has made me even more diehard. I started following some people who were making comments on Twitter during the games. I started doing the same and soon they would also follow me. Now, I have this weird Laker Twitter family and each game we watch and comment. I'm learning more about how to describe plays, more about each player, and slang terms in basketball that I'd never heard of. It's making me a better person.

So now I'm obnoxious during the games and I really want to charge things up at a live game at Staples. When they make the finals, I'm thinking of getting tickets to one of the home games. It'll be expensive, but should be totally worth the experience.

I drew this picture for the game today; Lakers vs. Nuggets. It depicts Birdman falling prey to Black Mamba!

I'm just pissed at Birdman because people at work were calling me that on account of my faux-hawk look. That ugly bastard ruins everything.

The Orlando Directive

greetings followers
i am back from the brink
was once lost but am now again found
stowed away to humid swamp terrains
invaded a mythical castle
traversed a leaping sea
went gigantic golfing
approached a phallic relic
worshipped a buddah belly
dozed under a tree of organisms
worshipped a silly human dog
visited a familiar landmark clone
discovered the crystal temple in the shadow of the dragon paw
gained limitless power from the carrinthean crystal
defeated the ancient sumo warrior of gallenia
schmoozed with fine kitty ladies in the felinina galaxy
wish my sexual programming had been installed
. . .
ef em el

As Far As I'm Concerned, 2009 is Over

Sure... Ellvin Kelvin's getting married later this year and all which by all accounts should mark the single most important event of this year. The reason I say 2009 is over for me is because LOST finished off their season last night! And they ended it with a giant white screen and "WTF" faces on everyone! We have to wait till 2010 to learn what happens next! My god. Half this year isn't even done yet.

Fortunately the rest of the year should fly by quick. Next week we begin Early Friday hours which carries us through Labor Day. We've got the New York trip for Ellvin Kelvin's wedding in August and then the Taiwan trip in October. In August, I'd like to go to Vegas with my Walt Disney World Friends!

So with many things to look forward to, LOST should be right around the corner.

I'm currently watching Game 6 of Lakers vs. Rockets. Hope we close it out today!

Seeking Jacob,

The Walt Disney World Twitterstravaganza

Otherwise known as the lazy way of posting a trip report... During the big Walt Disney World Orlando vacation, I Live tweeted the entire time. But because I had exhausted ~220 of my allotted 250 text messages prior to the trip, I had only a limited supply to post updates. Below is what was aired Live for the world to see.

P.S. I will also be posting some additional photos never before seen at another time.

Jebus. I fell asleep at 9pm and am fully awake right now. Still 8 hours till the flight. #WaltDisneyWorld updates begin in 16 hours.

WDW in less than 7 hours. Can't sleep!

At my 3 hour layover in Chicago. Naturally I am eating Chicago-style jumbo dog!

HOLY SHIT! Almost missed my flight to Orlando because of the 2 hour Chicago time difference!

Well..... my plane landed safely in Orlando. And 20 minutes early to boot! Just tried Chick fil A for the first time. Mmmmm!

I'm going to give the others 20 more minutes to get their plane landed or else. Or else. I'll go ape shit. Don't test me.

Just realized I may have coworkers and parents following this and I've already used "shit" 2 times -3 if you count now. I'll try to behave.

At last we are here! Towel Mickey and duck greet us in our room at Port Orleans!

Magic Kingdom day one - off to a slow start and my left eye burns from sunblock.

It's a beautiful day! Big Thunder Mountain! 3rd ride of the trip.

Time for a funnel cake break at Liberty Square!

Day 2 - Starts in..... eh just 5 more minutes.

EPCOT! Next stop Spaceship Earth.

Illuminations: Reflections of Earth! Perfect way to end a great day at EPCOT!

Islands of Adventure! First visit! Yeehaw!!!

Reporting LIVE from Jurassic Park! There's a cute green little lizard at my feet.

Dr. Suess overload!

A visit to the kwik e mart before the simpsons ride at universal studios!

What was once a mango margarita from MargaritaVille - gone in 60 seconds!

Learning about Hollywood make up effects!

Goodbye Universal Studios Orlando! Had a great time! Now back to Disney!

Arthur checking Facebook.

I walked around Universal Studios & Downtown Disney all day and my feet feel like they're gonna fall off! PLUS, MY EAR IS STILL PLUGGED! FML

Typhoon Lagoon today! Surf's up!

Soaking up some partly cloudly sun! Relaxification!

The crazy big wave at the Typhoon Lagoon wave pool! Jump!

Fun! Hang ten!

Eating at Ohana's at Walt Disney World! Holy crap! So good!

I just ate my weight in shrimp at Ohana's at the Polynesian resort! So stuffed I can barely move! FML

Hanging out at Pixar Studios today. Well not the real one but the WDW one.

Conquering the Mountain of Terror! Er- I mean Tower...

Toy Story Midway Mania at Walt Disney Studios! Pixar rocks!

Lights Motors Action! Lots of donuts! Vrrrrrrrrrroooooooom!

Now eating at the Sci-Fi Diner in Disney's Hollywood Studios!

Watching the American Idol Experience at the Studios park. -_-

As a #Lost fanatic I got a meal called LOST: Down the Hatch. Fish & chips -_-

Animal Kingdom all day today & all out of texts. So sadly no more updates. Bye!

One more update- Fantasia Gardens mini golf! So much fun! I won but just barely!

Perfect way to bring this Walt Disney World vacation to an end... watching #LOST on the East Coast before my West Coast compadres! Faraday!

Horrible photo! But farewell Port Orleans! Your mosquitos can't get me now! : (

Stay tuned for more!
