I made up my mind.
Dear few readers, an experiment. See where it takes me.

Bozart was put to sleep early this afternoon. I'll miss him.

My name is Jay, I'm 20 years old, and this made me teary-eyed around 12:40 this morning.
I need to return to writing comic Livejournal entries if I'm going to keep writing in it at all. I welcome any suggestions for themes about which I can try to be funny.

Two lovely months, as of today!
I had an adventure in the kitchen this afternoon: black beans and Spam. I used a little too much Canola oil, apparently, and the pan and Spam kept spitting at me. It was actually quite good. My cooking prowess now also encompasses luncheon meat.
I'm wearing a sexy mask! You can't see me!
It's bright and shiny out and I just heard thunder. This weather is confusing my plans to finish painting my British neighbor's fence by the end of the week. He's a cool, cool guy, and he's building a deck on the side of his house, just for something to do. He ends every phone conversation with a very fast "Cheers mate bye". Hearing that is like the feeling fictional preteens get when the cool older kids call them "dude" or otherwise reify them, except less pitiful.
I was half-watching the NBA Finals last night (read: it was on and I was flipping channels) when I found Telemundo's coverage of the cosmologically inconsequential Guatemala-Trinidad and Tobago soccer game. Nothing, but nothing, is more entertaining than Spanish-language fútbol broadcasts. The announcers should consider moonlighting in opera.
Like Alina, I have book reading suggestions, by which I mean I'm going to name some of the books in my immediate vicinity: Dangerous Drug Interactions by Joe and Teresa Graedon; Prairy Erth by William Least Heat-Moon; Rand McNally's Road Atlas 2003; Drawing Wildlife by someone Amberlyn; and The Art of Robert Bateman. It has a fox painting on the front.

Rachael called me from Bath, England, today.
Wicked. I'm happy. She said "Wish you were here." I wanna go somewhere.
And Canada is not allowed to win our spelling bee. So they didn't. I'm excited about So You Think You Can Dance. I like Hok.

From a somewhat recent National Geographic insert on the worldwide popularity of football (soccer):
"Athens, 2004: Blind soccer debuts at the Paralympics. Players follow the sound of a bell in the ball."
Yes, but does the goal ding, too? Do the players ding? I... just... the... I'm an awful person for the hilarious mental images this conjures up. It's great.

Once again, the world has failed in its ever-feebler attempts to stop me from achieving a higher age value. As a reward for my continued rebellion, Rachael has bestowed upon me the second season of Arrested Development. It will be a good day.
