I have a roommate? huh?So yeah.
Our schedules have the tendency to be contradicting. It's been about a good two weeks since we've actually conversed for like more than a second. (other than the usual call to confirm that one of us has set the VCR to record a show) It's getting pretty odd.
I've been roommates with this guy for over a year we've always been in this situation every evening:
Jason: I'm bored.
Frank: I'm bored.
Jason: What do we do?
Jason: Entertain me!
That would go on for like an hour till we finally decide to go rent a movie. It was always like this. It was a routine that never failed to incessantly happen.
I guess we have lives now (or something). But I kinda miss it like the way you feel when you've done something so much for so long, you expect it--the familiarity of it all.
Well, I'm exaggerating a little about the "lives" part. Jason has his normal 9 to 5 job, and I have my crazy-rollercoaster-hours job. Between that, visiting family, trips to the ER and dating, there's no extra time.
So I joined Alumni Band. Yeah, I know. That's so weird! But on the bright side, it gave me a reason to demand days off. So now I have my Saturdays back, which is AWESOME! It makes me wish I still worked at a school, even though I woud have to deal with children (shudder) and parental neurosis. Anyways, so when I don't have a game I have my Saturday free!! woot.
Where the hell was I? Oh yeah.
Next Saturday (Not this Saturday, but the next one) is Jason's bday party! woot.
So come to it, you guys! It is kind of going to be the first time that Jason and I are going to be in the same room for more than a few minutes. Should be good times.
(Yeah. I do have THIS Saturday off, but I have a date [insert smirk here]. And I think Jason might have one too I wasn't paying attention, but I think he was making it up)
PS. I've been struggling to decide whether or not to invite some of my fellow coworkers to Jasons Bday. I mean, sure he doesn't know them... but they are cool. They can add some much needed color to Jason's usual "boring orange" self.
hehe. I was having a talk with one of my FAVORITE coworking about this subject:
Frank: Do you think I would invite some of the people here to the party?
Amanda: Invite me and get me drunk!
Frank: It's like you're in my head.
It's not like we're having this huge thing, but I want it to be good. Quality over quantity, you know.
Going through the partylist
other SMU peeps
Coworkers that I would invite:
Adriana (2nd fav.. don't tell her that though!)
I would totally invite ALL the people I work with. They are so likeable. Except Krista, she's a bitch. Yesterday she tried to asked me to switch days with her. (Switching to that I would work on the day of this party) I was like HEEELL NO! I guess I want these people to see a different part of me. The part that all my SMU friends already know.
Even though it is Jason's party, it's still about me!! But I'm getting him a kick ass gift anyway.

Geez, yoI didn't have work today till 7pm, which rocks. I get to stay up as late as I want, and sleep practically all day. I am finding that these times are the highlights of my week. Pretty sad, eh? Well I don't care, I'm a cheap date like that.
So I'm enjoying one of these times. It's probably 8 or 9 something AM, so I was naturally dead asleepin' when I wake up to a scratching at my door. What the hell?! I just went to sleep like 2 hours ago. I get up, with the comforter wrapped around me, opened the door to find the roommate at the door. Apparently his little incident (I'm sure he will blog about it soon, so I won't give it all away) involving cutting his finger had progessively worstened.
I spend the next few minutes trying to rebandage his wounds. Ugh, my eyes were foggy and flourescent lights weren't helping. It wasn't easy, but I managed to get the thing on with only a few blood-curdling yelps from Jason. Then we was all like "I'm going to the ER"
I volunteer to go with him, like the good roommate I am. Besides if Jason dies, I would have to move in with Devon.. ewww. Anyways, we go to Baylor and of course the ER is like under construction and we don't know where the hell we are going. It's raining, but I managed to grab a jacket before we left.
Since Jason lacerated his left-handed/writing hand, I had to fill out forms and laugh when he tried to write right handed. But the hardest part was when he was getting examined and I waited in the lobby place.
UGH! People in the hospital are so dramatic! They will do anything to get attention. First of all, we're in the "minor accident ER." That means if you are assigned there, your injury cannot be life threatening. Jason mangled his finger and blood was gushing out of it. If you have a toothache, go to the denist!!
Yeah, so there was this guy who was moaning bloodly murder about his tooth. I did bring my ipod (sweet), but coincidentally Jessica Simpson was on the Rachel Ray show and you know I gots to watch that shit!! The guy was ruining my Jessica Simpson TV watching experience! How rude. And she was cooking too!
Oh yeah, so if you see Jason try to be sensitive to his deformed hand. Freaks have feelings too.
(PS. Jason's bday party, Nov.4)

nerd-curiousEvery once and a while, Frank decides to take up something new. It's like a leap year type of occurance. He likes certain things and that's it. When he does try new things, it's crazy insane.
There was that time when he tried the Atkin's Diet in college. He doesn't talk about the experience much because it was hell, but he lost 40 pounds. One day he will show you pictures to prove it. They are quite dramatic.
Then there was the girlfriend. What? Frank is straight now?! I'm confused. Well, we all were. Some are still trying to grasp the concept even now that it's long over, but who can blame them? Frank is an idol to most.
Perhaps the biggest one was when a shy, scared then freshman, went to his first college party. He doesn't usually drink, so decides to drink one of everything. Frank then goes on the next year to break the record in drinking a pitcher of beer in an organization that may or may not exist.
Now it's time for another huge leap for Frank.
But what can it be? It seems like Frank has conquered everything. Well, not everything. There's like two things Frank hasn't done. One is curing cancer. Okay, perhaps three things: Curing Cancer, Walk through the concord on Haskell without having birds try to poop on him AND...
Join the internet RPG video game sensation!
(hehe, it's kinda fun talking in 3rd person. Love it)
It's not like I'm playing World of Warcraft (yet). I'm playing Guild Wars, cause I think paying to be a nerd would be too much for me. I can't afford to be poor AND socially inept.
Welcome to Frank's blog-- egocentrically yours! I'm a college graduate from Dallas, Texas. Get some insight on frank. Learn the frank. Know the frank. Apply the frank to real-life situations. Praise the frank.
