Summer’s Over…

Another summer draws to a close. How do I know?

When the only annoying song I can come up with is (high squeaky voices please, to be extra annoying sing off key on purpose):

I knew a squirrel,

His name was Merle,

He was an earl,

Of many squirrels!

(Repeat ∞)

(Bold=Long and drawn out)

This song keeps coming up on my Ipod.

I realized football is only 3 days away.

My fantasy football season started today with a live draft.

I had to put together all my 9th grade stuff, a sign that it is officially done with, but…

I had to unpack all my 10th grade stuff. A sign that I have some stuff to do that isn’t anywhere near being officially done with.

An awesome summer Bible study of Ecclesiastes came to an end with a two page paper. (Look for it here sometime this week.)

Political races have begun to heat up again. Speaking of which, Jan Brewer needs to get a new speechwriter. That, or take some ginkgo biloba.

The fall soccer season began last Friday! Wait, that means…



I am slowly starting to consider changing my theme here on WordPress for my blog. I’ve had this theme since the beginning of my blogging career, but I have slowly gotten tired of it. Maybe because I just randomly picked it because it looked good and I wanted to say something sarcastic that I thought was funny.


If you have followed me since the beginning, you’ve known that my writing has changed a lot since the start. I began writing The Chronology of Ainigriv, and thought I was a genius for coming up with a name that was “Virginia” spelled backwards.

I moved into football writing, trying to act like the sports columnists I didn’t read and had no idea how to write like. My favorite part is that the whole time I didn’t edit my posts very well and seplled vrey poroly.

I tried to get my audience (Mom and Dad) in on the action, then after 2 votes (great poll) came up with Discovery.

I previewed some baseball.

I recapped 3 weeks of The Amazing Race that no one really cared about. If you didn’t watch it, you didn’t watch it. What was I thinking pretending to now be an entertainment TV critic?

I finally finished my book and began posting.

I started The Commenting Page with this post.

Celebrated my birthday. I turn 15 in 6 days by the way. Hint.

I then reviewed Madden 2010. Speaking of which, I haven’t played that in a while…

Then I started a new blog. 360sportsjam. By the way, I probably will never post there again. Watch me eat my words in a year or so.

I also conducted a National Pie Day poll. Chocolate Cream Pie got the win.

And then one of my favorite posts of all time. This is where I believe I want to really take my blog to. A place of musing, philosophy, thoughts, jokes, and random stuff. I talked about Heroes.

A flurry of posts came in May. I first posted about running my first 5K and some tips about it. Posted a parody video of Sunday Morning worship services.

Then I released the announcement of The Liberation of Cruinne. Here is the first part.

Then I began Plinky. First Plinky Post.

Posted the second part of The Liberation of Cruinne.

Then I talked about my life in 10 years. This one got a lot of views and some comments.

I Hulked up.

And then my most recent one. This one was odd. I don’t know why I posted this. I was trying to go somewhere with it, trying to make it sound cool, or thought-provoking, but it never really came out the way I wanted it to sound. I posted it anyway.

So after all that….

What was the point? I wanted to show everyone where I have come from and how my blog has evolved over the years.

Now for where  it is going, I already said that. Scroll back on up.

Oh, by the way, Liberation of Cruinne Part 3 IS coming. I finished writing it and am editing now.

No longer posting Discovery. I will post the first few chapters though, for pleasure.  Still writing it however.

And with that I’m done for the night. Post a comment below, subscribe to my blog, Like it above or below, follow me on Twitter, etc.

Gimme some ideas for a new theme.

Writings And Other Musings 2.0 is coming soon. The answer is not 42. Look up.

The Incredible Hulk

The Incredible Hulk

Last night, I was watching an old episode of The Incredible Hulk on Retro TV. At the end I noted the standard part in the credits

Consultant: Stan Lee

That was funny. But what really cracked me up was the next part, where in the fine print it said:

“All characters appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.”

Yup, any resemblance to the real Hulk is purely coincidental.

And don’t even ask why I was watching an old episode of The Incredible Hulk.
