i wonder if there’s anyone out there with the name patrick richard (insert last name). so if you shortened his name, it’d be pat rick kim or patrick kim.
i remember one time i was driving with someone from out of town and he was like,
“what’s K. Roger’s?”
i said, “i have no idea what you’re talking about.”
he said, “there! look! what’s that?!”
i said, “oooh!! that’s kroger!! it’s a grocery store”
a long time ago i was with another friend who was from chicago and he called chick-fil-a, chickafilla
i have a friend who, for the life of him couldn’t pronounce the words, robitussin or tuberculosis and my friends and i would always try to trick him into saying it.
if i were a candy bar company, i’d name one of my products piece of that. and then when people say they want it, they’d say, “hey, let me get a piece of that.” or if they just want some of it, they’d say, “let me get a piece of that piece of that.”
likewise, if i were to name a snack food, i’d name it shutcho mouth. and then when people ask what you’re eating, you’d say, “shutcho mouth!” i bet a lot of needless fights would occur because of this. i better make it not so delicious.
do you ever have the feeling that the whole world is playing a joke on you? like one of those truman show kind of moments where you feel like the whole world is in on a secret that you’re not a part of. all of humanity is playing some kind of prank on you and they’re getting a good laugh at your expense. i know this sounds all conspiracy theory and all, but what if…?
i always thought about what if cars don’t really need gas and it’s just a ploy from oil companies to make a profit. with the obvious fact that cars have run out of gas in the past out of the picture. we were only told that our cars need gas to run and if we’re good motorists, we kept our tank full. but what if? what if we let that gas tank run out? and what if we found that our cars would still run long long after the gas light came on? tell me i’m not the only one who thinks of these things.
what if the world was keeping you from something? and everyone on earth knew about it except for you. i think i’d want to know what it was. i wasn’t gonna go here, but now that i think about it, it kinda makes sense… maybe that’s what Jesus is like. some people are blissfully unaware that there are whole cultures and worlds that are totally transformed by Jesus while they are in their own bubble totally unaware of something that could change their life forever. i’d think i’d want to know what that something is.
i need a break. i feel very edgy. like some kind of dog that would bite you if you pet it wrong. i guess you could say i’m doing too much. responsibility is my enemy right now.
i’m feeling pretty overwhelmed. i think my anal-ness comes into play too. i like things done my way and i feel like if i don’t do it, it won’t get done. and in a lot of cases, that’s actually true. you know how some people say that, but things get done anyway? i do actually believe that if i don’t do something, it won’t get done. maybe it’s pride? or maybe things just don’t get done and i’m the one who notices? or maybe things don’t have to get done, but i make it a point to get them done. hmmm…
either way, gimme a break
you ever watch a movie or tv show and you see a guy or girl from a commercial? or the other way around, someone from a movie or tv show you see in a commercial. i find this pretty comical. why? what’s wrong with me? i’ll tell you what’s wrong with me. commercials are meant to sell something. the actors play these roles of people who are in need of something and so the only possible option is for them to buy said product and instantly relieve any kind of need or want in that actor.
ok, so still nothing funny about that, but imagine this: the “actor” is playing the role of a person who has arthritis or something and has to take aleve or something. the next time you see him or her, they’re lifting up a car in a movie. i don’t know about you, but when i see that kind of stuff, i’m thinking, “woah, woah, woah! why should i buy aleve anymore when you didn’t even really have arthritis in the first place? i only bought it because i thought it worked on your arthritis!!”
bunch of liars they are! i guess some would call it “acting” or whatever, but i don’t buy it. i say, if they’re going to play someone with allergies or a fast-food worker, they should stick to roles that would further dig them permanently into that role. who’s with me? all this jumping around is driving me crazy. they should all be like denzel, sure he’s played different roles, but he’s played them all the same way – as a confident (sometimes cocky), yelling man, who don’t take nothing from no one. that’s what i could get used to. actors, take a lesson from mr. washington.
wow, i just typed in brain and genius in google and there’s actually a game called brain genius. so i picked the image that wasn’t just brain genius, it was brain genius 2!
i think the topics of sleep and dreams are so fascinating. i mean, if you think about it, when else are you just lying still, vulnerable to animal or people attacks while movies are playing in your mind? it’s one time when we’re just exposed to the world – break-ins happen while people are sleeping, murders, pranks, etc. and a lot of times, there’s just nothing we can do about it.
wouldn’t it be cool if our bodies didn’t need rest? we could just do whatever we wanted to do at night. although i’m sure as the humans that we are, we’d try to fill it with work. so maybe it is better that God made our bodies require rest.
so i was dreaming the other night and i woke up and i was amazed at what my brain came up with. so the dream goes:
i was in vegas playing poker. i’ve never played poker in vegas before and don’t really know the table rules. however, as i’m playing, i’m picking up these rules i’ve never learned before but seem very official. i even picked up a few crazy ones that were pretty fun. i couldn’t imagine how my brain came up with these rules i’ve never heard before. i was really impressed with my subconcious. good job buddy! if only i could think like that when i’m awake.
