First and foremost I'd like to give a shout out to my bro Jeff because I'm on his laptop and well sometimes peeps deserve a shout out now and then.

So I just had an amazing weekend full of joy and...joyness. Me, Delta, Jeff, and Robin all went t Disneyland, the most magical place on earth.

I think we should start at the end and move backwards. Tonight we took a tram from the park to our hotel and as we got out in my sheer exhaustion, and also because of the awesomeness of the driver, I said "Merry Christmas." Now if this was near the end of December that'd be nothing special but well it's the end of January and can't really apply.

All day long was spend going from ride to ride; Matterhorn, Finding Nemo supmarine, Indiana Jones, and a few others. What sticks out to me is when I was able to step into a Sci-Fi short story and see an actual bonafide robot. His name is A.S.I.M.O. I forget what it stands for but he's amazing.

Standing about 3 and half feet tall, weighing 140 bounds, walks a little 2 miles per hour, can run about 5 miles per hour this mechanical wonder is the 1st generation of many humanoid robots that can and will change the way we look at science.

Asimo may have had some peprogramming but most of his responses seemed to be a reacation to his surroundings. When he came out on stage I felt like the little boy on "A Christmas Story" when he gets his bee-bee gun. I was so gidy I'm almost embarrassed, but I'd like you look at one of your dreams come true and not feel the same way =). He walked on and waved to the crowd and they turned on a camera and displayed what he was seeing and projected it on a T.V. so we could see what he saw. When the crowd waved we saw the he registered a few individuals and was able to wave at them back. Then the guy on stage went to talking more and I waved again, this time on the screen I was highlighted with a red square and the robot waved. That's right 20 years of study and experiments, more money than my parents house, maybe even their whole block is worth, WAVED AT ME!! Again the giddy thing is coming back up =). Oh man it was awesome.

The previous day we wend on some more rides; Screamer, Star Tours, and others all of which were awesome and fun. But just like today there is one moment that sticks out more than the others. This is the conquering of Splash Mountain. So when I was a lad my family came to Disneyland and went on a lot of rides. One of which was Splash Mountain. I wanted to brave it but at some point in time I chickened out and went with my mom to some bears that I've never heard of house or what ever and watched them dance. I was quite bored with it and have regretted not going on the ride.

Now I'm a grown man and fear nothing so of course I can do a 50 foot fall on a roller coaster right. Of course I can and I did. The part worth mentioning is the fall. We go through the ride. Songs I've never heard and characters I've never seen are all around and I'm kinda bored and thinking, this is what I was afraid of. So we get to the drop and I put my hands in the air ready to accept my fate and face my fears. With a smile on my face we start going over the top and start to fall. At this point in time I say to myself. "Holy crap I'm falling!" and quickly put my arms down and crab hold of the bars in front of me and then the fall is over and I'm left a little abashed. Luckily the picture was taken as I was taking my hands down and my face just looks board, it just missed the sheer terror that was gripping my heart by a second or less.

We ate at a few different places in the park and to our pleasure it's not as over priced as we had been led to believe, don't get me wrong it was still over priced but so is California.

And before that I was in Utah or on my way here.

Motivation for ogers

So I went to Subway for dinner and discovered something beautiful and lovely. I knew that chipoltlay sauce was fantastic but I saw a guy put BBQ on his sandwhich and I put chipoltlay and BBQ on my sandwhich and it was AMAZAZING!!

The weird thing about all of this was the man who was ordering the sandwhich in which motivated my amazing discovery. The man was about 6 ft. 7 in. and had a big face that just looked kinda mean. When he swung his arms you felt like you were near a large tree that's branches may snap and break and kill you in the proccess. When he spoke it was a low growl, his speach and vocabulary gave the impression of a scholar of some type and it just made it seem stranger considering what he looked like.

I think that the first person to write about ogers must have been looking at a man, or maybe a woman, that looked alot like that and I felt like I had a glimpse of the world that authors like J.R.R. Tolken may have felt in looking at the world around him...Crazy.

Why do we say things

So i just checked my bros blog about why we don't say things and unlike him where he woke up late at night thought I am unable to sleep and trying to stop. Since I had a completely opposite experience I thought I'd have an opposite title (=.

But really why do we say things, now we see the under rested Zack that never really has an idea of what he's talking about but keeps on keepin on.

I think I say things to let out what's inside because if I don't let it out then it become like a traffic jam where the cars are all sitting there honking at one another and I'm unable to do some of the simplest things. I also say things so that people feel like they are a part of my life and then feel encouraged to say things to me and have me be a part of their life.

Thanks Giving (Blog #2)

So I had a way sweet thanksgiving. I got to go to my girl's fams house for a lunch and we then played Mario party on the Wii and I totally would have won if I didn't have to go to my Grandmas to build gingerbread houses. My house is way awesome and perrty. Then good times were to continue buy burning a couch, again with my girl and others, like my bro Jeff on of my besties Susy Q and RyRy Honeyman.

A new blogger is born
