Why the US needs to play more soccer

Popularity of football (soccer) around the world(via wikipedia, click for full size

football around the world

Hi all,

after the world cup I was thinking that US definitely needs to play playing more soccer (ahem football) it’s a very simple sport and doesn’t take as much time as US football, and its constant action, not, play for 8 seconds, penalty, wait for penalty ruling, wait for penalty to be approved, penalty challenged, ads, play for 8 seconds, repeat.  I also think we should play more cricket, but that’s another post.  Well I’ve gotta go write another email to FIFA requesting Omaha be the location of 2026 world cup.

haha she lost

Hi all,

Well first I want to apologize for not blogging I’ve been kinda busy.  Well some of you out there probably play “The Game”, which you just lost (but so did I to think of the post), and if you don’t start.  It’s really fun and there’s only 3 rules

  1. Everyone in the world is playing The Game. (Sometimes narrowed to: “Everybody in the world who knows about The Game is playing The Game”, or, “You are always playing The Game.”) You cannot not play The Game; it does not require consent to play and you can never stop playing.
  2. Whenever one thinks about The Game, one loses.
  3. Losses must be announced to at least one person (either by using a statement such as “I Lost The Game” or by alternative means).

that’s the game you now must play, it’s impossible not to.

Courtyards are weird

1 Comment

Hi all,
Well I’m sitting here in room 202 of the long island courtyard Marriott. I was walking around(as I so love to do) and it’s decorated in a perfect style, has great amenities, but the room is kinda sucky. Last night I was staying a just plain old Marriott and the room and hotel was nice and normal. But HERE it’s all different, there’s like a restaurant, and a convenient store, and, yes, and actual courtyard, this one seems more like a place to hang out, where you would just stay here, and the other one just seemed like lodging. Also the did something weird at checkin here, the made me sign a no partying policy, and yes that is hoe they worded it at the top it said, no partying policy, weird right. That’s all,

Instrument segregation

Hi all,

Well, I play the cello and am in an orchestra. During practice today I was wondering why it seems the violins always get the melody, and us Violas, and Cellos always get stuck on backup, and don’t even get me started on the poor basses. Well I originally thought it was just our conductor the last 3 years, because she was a violin( well she played all the instruments, but violin was her main), but our new conductor is a cello like me, and we’re still in the background.

Cello, 'A voz do amor e da dor e da paixão...'...

So what I want to know is whose idea was it to make the violins the main instrument, was it back in the time of Bach and Beethoven, or was it just in modern times, and how did it get that way, was there a reason, or did it just work out that way, or was it some sort of prejudice, I don’t know, but what I do know is that us cellos, and violas, and basses are all condemned to a life of playing backup for those big wig violins.

Hi all,
Well, I’m posting by email, because the stupid wordpress blackberry app won’t load, and the wordpress mobile site sucks. Well I’m on yhe bus, and ley me just say, this thing is really damn hot, it doesn’t have AC, and there’s tons of people in here. AND I’m the last stop, so I have to suffer until 1545 maybe 1530 on good days, but that almost never happens. Well that’s it.

Mini lab

2 Comments

Hi all,
A few days ago I got an idea whil I was playing with my dog, a yellow lab. Labs are always so cute as puppies, but as they get older they look less cute. I think there should be labs that just stay small and cute their entire life. I mean they have miniture yorkies(I’m nor kidding they’re called teacup yorkies, look it up) and they’re like 10 times smaller then normal yorkies(only 5 Lb.)Why can’t they have labs like that that’s what I shpuld devote my life to.
