The sky turns the color of hot

My body is on fire, but my brain cannot seem to get firing on the subject of abstinence so I will try writing here a little to get something going.

I tried running again for the first time in 10 days yesterday and today I am paying for it. I was very happy with myself for fighting through the heat yesterday to pound out 60 minutes for BBC. According to MapMyRun, a lap around Hilltop is .26mi so I will take that to mean a quarter of a mile. However, I don’t know how many laps me and Brian did, but it felt nice. Today, I’m sore in all the places where muscles that I have not used in the past couple of weeks sit. Between running and putting burgers in between buns, I will give myself four hours of community service for the day.

Later, I learned one my friends’ prowess in making movies. In one of them, he acted as a Southern senator throwing some kind of tirade. I am anxiously awaiting seeing our remake of Cloverfield. It’s a movie that makes you want to keep watching, but the ending is rather abrupt and sad. But, perhaps that’s a good thing. I don’t like the gimmicky nature of their special features on the DVD. That’s just gay and faggish like the Disney people who hide the random disgusting stuff in Disney movies.

I received a few more compliments on my hair. Always exciting. Now what to do about this heat?

The sweat kept me away

After Wednesday’s pair of AP test, I felt as if I had just run a race so I ended up taking a shower. More on that later. My arms and legs were somehow sore from all that essay writing. Art history test writers are rather mean.

After I came out of the shower, my hair was really flat, which looked really cool. The next day I decided I would try out this new look and used some gel to keep the hair down. I received some positive reviews, but so many people thought I got a haircut.

It’s really hot right now so I am going to stay away.

Where’s snakeslayer when you need him?

There was a four-foot long snake on my driveway today as I attempted to pull into and park in my driveway. As it occupied my space, I feared crushing it with my tires so I waited in the middle of street with my foot pressing down on the brakes. I staked out my spot while it slowly and lackadaisically straddled the ground and inched itself toward some rocks and bushes. I finally arrived on my driveway, parked, grabbed my backpack and dashed for the front door. After deciding, bringing in the trash cans was too scary a task to undertake, I noticed our back door was open and that my grandma was working outside. I warned her to be careful because there was a snake in the vicinity of the house. She grew incredibly excited and demanded that see it. She jumped up from washing some pots and sprinted to the front of the house, but the snake had apparently sped up its crawl and was now out of site. She was sad. I was relieved, but I shall remain on the lookout and will request that snakeslayer remain on-call.

Desire for fame

The Bones episode today was all about getting fame. Kind of freaky. Maybe the events my friends overtook was part of their quest for notoriety. It definitely is human nature to inflate their ego. Even those that do not admit to doing do it by virtue of not doing it.

IT acting up

Just got back from league finals which featured an intense finish to the 3200 with Proehl pounding it out to beat Dalton and Nathan as well as a discouraged Jake. Good stuff.

I actually won a game of Super Smash Brothers today. That’s probably the first time that has ever happened.

But sadly, my right IT has been hurting. I’m not really sure why. Maybe it’s compressing back into shape after the lack of running or maybe it is the weird positions that I have been utilizing to conduct massive studies the past few days.

I also visited the police department today, they are not exactly the most helpful of people. And the officer cussed. So did Coach Samaras. Really weird.

On a happier note, I do not see how I did not get a 5 on the APUSH exam. They say not to release any multiple choice questions, but I am just wondering: does Google include “anywhere”? Because according to Google Trends, today’s 88th most popular search term: “clear and present danger.” I’m just saying.
