This COULD go in crazy...but I have intentions on this being a more structured conversation, similar to the irony thread.

Every once in a while, if not frequent, things just come outta nowhere during the day. Awesome things. :p

At my school, you can't get into the building after 5:00pm unless you have your ID. So, Mondays and Wednesdays, I have a 6:00pm class. Upon entering the building, I was asked to show my ID. It's this real big intimidating guy who's usually there, so it's kinda funny watching people fumble around and get all nervous. He's cool though.

So anyway, I reach into my pocket and pull out what feels exactly like my school ID. For the most part I'm on the ball when it comes to school. I don't think twice about those things. I always have them, so it takes me two seconds to get past stuff like that. So...I'm walking by, and I hear this booming voice "Wait a second, Darth." I turn around to look at him and he asks for my ID. I looked at the card...I pulled out my Toys-R-Us giftcard that had Darth Vader on the front of it. We both just started laughing when I pulled out my real ID. I dunno. Nothing that spectacular. It was just funny. I saw the guy a few times today and he keeps calling me "Darth" XD He's funny though and definitely one of them people that it's good to have on your side.

You know, this is one of those things that I always find and think about and yet, I never really got to posting a thread on the topic.

There are so many little nifty things that make the world slightly more interesting and beautiful to you.

During finals last semester, someone stuck Ziggy comics on the coffee machine. I'm guessing to give the people who'd come looking for a fix amid the stress and frustration a laugh.

I'll post more as they come.

Just the other day I cut off all my hair (it's raelly short and I look way different). First day back at work since then, I was reading, so my head was down, and what is left of my hair was covering my face.One of the more intimidating managers at my work walks past me and says hello to a coworker then says in a near mean voice, "Are you new?" I look up at him and he's clearly embarrassed, then says hi to me then leaves. Everyone else in the break room started laughing.

*shrugs* It was pretty funny when it happened.

While I was at Barnes & Noble earlier tonight, this lady came over and sat with her son in the chair that was next to the shelf I was perusing, and she starts talking loudly to him about all sorts of things. After I had moved on to another area, her phone rang and, trying not to be rude in return, I tried not to eavesdrop which was hard since she was talking so loudly in a quiet place and everyone could hear it all anyway. It's quite difficult to avoid listening in and concentrate on something else when the one sound is persistently there.

So her conversation's relatively boring and continuing to sound more and more pretentious. Eventually, she starts talking about how hard she was partying on New Year's and then she dropped this interesting and awkward gem: "Ugh, I had gotten so drunk, I flashed my dad."

Why say that in public? Oh well.

**crinkles her nose** Ewww...flashed her dad. And that's great Bel. Totally didn't recognize you...Is your boss usually like that? Or just with new people?

Anywho...nothing really THAT awesome lately. That one dude at the school still calls me "Darth" and now it's rubbed off among many other people. The oddest nicknames stick with me. XD

There's this one guy in two of my classes though. He's in my creative writing class, which meets three times a week, and then my film course, which meets once a week. He's awesome though. I usually don't try to sterio-type people based off of looks, but this time I couldn't help it. And I was right! This guy is like one of them people you see on TV, the bigger dudes with the dark hair, mostly wears just jeans and a plain T-shirt, lives in his mom's basement and owns every Star Wars collectable out there...

Well...after talking to this guy I've learned that there's one difference...he confessed to not owning EVERY Star Wars object out there. Teehee. He's really cool though. Uber smart. I talk to him outside of class now too. He's 26, so he's not old. Young enough to be my buddy without my mom freaking out. XD I just find it so cool...he's the guy you see in them nerd movies. I always wanted to meet someone like that.

(And I don't mean to seem superficial in saying "nerd" like they're a type of animal to be kept as a pet...I honestly do think that "nerds" are actually "cool".)

While my mom and I were waiting in line for the bathroom at the Getty Center (this uppity art museum in L.A. that's usually visited by pretentious people who like to drop as many names as they can in everything they say) yesterday, this older woman went up to another in a wheelchair and started to have this conversation:

Pretentious woman: "I like your scarf. It looks exactly like mine. Did you get yours in India too?"
Wheelchair woman: "Nope, T.J. Maxx. Made in India. Heh, we probably paid the same for it."
Pretentious woman: "Well, no, uh my husband gave me mine as a gift. Well uh, see you later."

In other words the woman was still trying to one-up the woman in the wheelchair by saying that at least she still got hers as a present and didn't sink to buying the exact same garment at a crappy department store for cheaper.


Meh, it's a lame story, but I despise pretentious people and it's unfortunately the type of people I'm always around hanging out at museums and theaters.


I'll have better stories soon.

After a month at working at Splash mountain, there was this one day that our intrusion system there went haywire. The computer operating the systems: FREYTA, kept on giving the splash mountain cast members "Non-Resetable Ride Stop, Automatic Ride stop inhibit."

Well, if youve ever been to DIsney, you may notice on a few new cast members a tab under their name saying "Earning My ears." Its kinda like you are telling people. "Im new, I may not know everything, but I can at least try and help you."

Well, one day, I went up to the Managers building, pulled out an "Earning my Ears" tab, and stuck it under FREYTA's computer monitor...I thought it was funny because she was a new intrusion program after all.

"Earning my ears" That's so cute.

My step-dad. He is like the greatest dude in the world and definitely falls under the category of those men who are considered "big kids" XD

So, I come home from my evening class I have Mondays and Wednesdays, tired as all hell...and I hear all of this commotion in my basement. So I open the door and start heading down the stairs and teh dad started freaking out, telling me not to come down and that he'd call me when he was done. So...about 20 minutes later, he calls me down. The man set up a little entertainment center in my basement...there's a TV, DVD player, my old radio, two beach chairs with a cover thrown over them, some pillows, a lamp...and that's pretty much it. It's pretty cool though...my basement isn't one of them nice, finished basements though. It's more like them creepy things that at 18 years old, I can still be easily freaked out about going down there.

Yeah, it's pretty cool...the best part though, was when I went down, he was sitting there and had this smile on like he was some little kid who just did the most awesome thing that all the other kids on the block couldn't do yet. First thing he said was "And we can play our video games down here too." XD Yes, I play video games with my step-dad.

While sitting in the office and my boss (school newspaper adviser) was teaching the newspaper class next door and suddenly the power blows and all the electricity at school went out. I walked into the hallway, lined with classrooms, and shouted, "Happy Amish Appreciation Day!!"

Incidentally the power was out all over campus for about 45 minutes.

Here's a good one:

Some guy came into the store one day, normal fellow, nothing special, nothing standing out about him. He's walking around, asks us the price on some stuff, then comes up to the counter.

He says to me and my manager, "you guys wanna hear a funny story?"

We're being polite and say yes.

He starts off by saying, "Ok, uhhh, I shoot Coke(Cocaine), and my buddy was talking to me the other day, real cool guy, he goes "Hey, if you let me shoot your gun a couple of times I'll give you a bag of coke." I say yes because I've known him for a while and have let him shot it before, oh, the gun was legal and all, in my name and everything. So this guy turns to me just after I give him the gun and holds it to my head, says "If you don't give me the rest of the bullets, I'll blow your head off" So, I give him the rest of the bullets,g o home and call the cops. They picked him up a few hours later without my gun. The next day I see his cousin and his couisin comes up to me and goes "Hey, my cousin got picked up because of you!" and I go "Well, just let him know that if he brings me my gun I won't press charges." S I start walking away again and he follows me home, I get to my door and he shouts out "Actually, I got a better idea" And BAM, shoots me grazes the side of my head."

At this point the guy points to just next to his ear where there's a deep gash that was treated and healing.

"I just got out of the hospital today and after I go home I'm not leaving my house for a few days. The doctor said I shouldn't be driving...especially with all the jack daniels and coke in my system, that's what I shouldn't be doing in the first place. Well, off to shoot some more fellas. Bye."

me and my manager just looked at each other and commented on how ridiculous this situation we're in is.

Some crazy shit happens down at Gamestop.
