Sorry for the long time for the Completion post but I had to wait for the kid to wake up before I could get a picture with him. Anyway, yesterday my brothers friend from the wonderful world of France came to visit and stay the night with us on his journey to America for the summer.

I don’t believe I had really ever talked to this kid while he lived in America but I decided yesterday I would not only properly introduce myself, but have some nice conversation… basically about hot french women and Rock Band. haha.

Here is the picture, his name is Nick Kazoglou and he used to live in Parsippany…but left a couple years ago. Picture is below. That is about it. He said that he would show the website to some people on the other side of the world. Ya’hear that! Now I am getting more famous. People in Europe will know me. As far as I see, the book is TOTALLY working. Anyways, Day 11 complete. NEW TASK!!!

Okay. So back from the blog hiatus. Sorry for writing the task so late and I have already completed it so the [Completed] portion isnt too far away. But let me get the summary of today up for y’all:

Day 11: Today introduce yourself to someone you know but never speak to

Examples:

  • A Neighbor!

Talk About: The Weather, The Fence, Other Neighbors

  • A Colleague!

Talk About: The Coffee Machine, The Boss, Other Colleagues

  • A Shopkeeper!

Talk About: The Local Area News, Freshness of Produce, Other Shopkeepers

  • A Local Hooker!

Talk About:  Prices, Possible Discounts, Other Hookers

So… I already said I completed it. Will be up in a couple of minutes. Kthnxbaii.

As you can tell…there was no mass update. This is for a simple reason, let me just bring you up to speed on the situation.

Okay, I came back from Maine doing a vast multitude of various days. from writing to mass murders and killing things. However, i was unable to write stuff since my birthday was on the day of arrival. From that point on, I tried writing a comprehensive log of each day that had been missed (up to the standards that I had written the others on a GIGANTIC log. It consists of 15 pages worth currently. However, it would take me about a day to write one full one w/pictures… and by that time, I had at that point missed ANOTHER day of writing for my agenda. So basically, I have an enormous amount of days written but am still one week behind and that will not change seeing my pace. That is why…. I thought of a solution while at North Carolina.

I can proudly claim I have completed every day up to this point… but I am going to start over from Day 10. Technically I have never missed a day and thusly not broken a rule… It just means I will have a bit of a longer year but oh well. So, I am starting again today at Day 11 and just going to repeat some tasks I have already done. This gives me a lot less to do ((=DDDDD)) and also I can put some videos of stuff I REALLY wanted to do but never got the time for.

So Im back again, hopefully I can get my readers back. And I promise NO MORE breaks. I have a vacation in another couple of weeks but I already have the days planned out and the nearest Starbucks located so i will be able to update. That said… Day 11. Here we go.

Today was hell for me. I am not a morning person, in any sense of the word. I hate waking up in general. Not to mention, no thanks to a various amount of girls, I have not slept in the past week. Well, lets say that I have gotten maybe 10 hours in the past four days.

So, last night started off with Billy and I staying at my house, trying to decide what to do. Our original plan from the start was to set of a mortar (seeing how it is almost the fourth of July) at the back of Northvail School… not to say that I own mortars or any fireworks for that matter… that would be illegal.

So we started thinking at midnight (when we shot clip number one) and then could not think of anything decently exciting to film. We looked through World Record books for ideas. Should we reenact the Sound of Music scene. NO! How about skydiving? …you’re kidding me right? What about we set off a mortar? WE ALREADY SAID NO TO THE MORTAR!!!

This ran on for just about 3 hours until we both came up with cool ideas; mine consisting of swimming, Billy’s consisting of a 7-Eleven Slurpee bike run in the morning. We stood undecided. We said we would just wake up earlier and do both.

That decided, we both went off to sleep. We set the alarm to wake me up at 4:15 (with the camera set to start recording at 4:14) and then I was to wake Billy up. I don’t like being woken at that hour. I beat the shit out of my clock as soon as it rang, then I beat the shit out of Billy until he was up. We prepared for the day; packed a bathing suit, a sweat shirt, jeans, sneakers, flip-flops, wallet, book, etc. That said, we headed off to Rise Rove pond.

By bike, we first tried getting there by taking a shortcut through the complex. However, we found a gang of pot smokers/deer along the way and decided not to risk it. Obviously, I can not tell the difference between a deer and a pot smoker…maybe a pot smoking deer? Regardless, we moved on.

We eventually found a path to Rise Rove pond, we had to do a lot of running though (probably to keep time good). I changed when I got there and I went in for the polar bear swim. It was actually really warm. Smelt like shit and I may have another arm growing off my neck in the upcoming month, but it was actually refreshing. I got out after doing a little lap.

I changed as quickly as I could, ran back to our bikes which were right off the road, and headed down to the 7-Eleven right off of Vail in Montville. There we got a 40 oz. Slurpee (only $1.70 great deal). I personally liked my blue-raspberry/coca-cola Slurpee. But by the end of it, i wasn’t full. It felt like a weight in my stomach, but that wasn’t worth much. I need sustenance.

We agreed to go get a breakfast sandwich on the way back up to my house and the most convenient stop was the Quik-Chek in Lake Hiawatha. We got there and treated ourselves to a hash brown and a bacon, egg, and cheese on a croissant.

I got home. Crashed. Woke up. Edited video. Im still tired so I think I will head to bed now, I have work in the morning. I have a nice gift tomorrow (more to me than you guys). See you then.

Alright, so let me just post the video before I put the synopsis of what I did today. We got all the editing done within about an hour or two of starting which just shows we are getting better at this.

For all those looking on Facebook: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FN_LZoSb3w0

I said that we may not have another video up for a while, and that is because a mix of vacations and a lack of interesting tasks. But we wanted to test out an experiment, so we will try and tape it and get it online. Don’t worry, it will be very funny.

So I finished today…or should I say yesterday, without much hassle. The only thing that really bothered me is that I did not get to use my Listerine until midnight. You cant imagine how dirty my mouth felt today, and that is one of my biggest pet peeves. That said, I am getting ready for the next task…which will be up soon.

However, I have to retract my video statement. We’ve had to change our plans. We will still have something but it will be far less interesting than one I originally had in mind.

Good afternoon readers. One week down, 41 to go (?). Well, today is a new day, and I am still incredibly sick. i was up all night (reading Twilight [yeah, I am such a girl]) so that is why I am writing so late. I have kinda been in and out all day. So, it is a good thing that today isn’t too demanding.

 Your body is your temple. Cut out addictive substances for the day and see how much purer you feel.

Well, this is incredibly easy for me, seeing how not only do i not drink coffee, but I don’t drink anything that is not water. So I normally dont have caffeine anyway. All I really have to do is stay clear from gum and my Listerine stuff. Although, I guess it is arguable that I am addicted to Twilight, I will keep it only to the literal things. I guess I will have to control my massive heroin and cocaine addiction for today. lol, kidding.

I just want to add that there will be a video tomorrow and it will be a bit more…exciting…than the last one was so you should definitely keep your eyes peeled for it. Until tonight.

…enough said. See you tomorrow.

I’m just copying the whole page verbatim out of the book. No need for pictures. No need for video. No need for commentary:

Day 7

Masturbate at 13:56 to the following fantasy:

Women:

Dark storm clouds were gathering over the Alpine mountain top as Emma finally reached the refuge. Where were the others? Where was her husband Edward? Perhaps they had fallen behind and taken the safe track back toward St-Paul-des-Cleres and civilization, she wondered. Well there was no point in panicking now. Night was falling fast, and she would have to spend it up here all alone at the mercy of these peaks. Exhausted, she entered the deserted cabin and barely had time to strip off her drenched clothes and slip into the thermal sleeping bag that Edward had thoughtfully given her for their sixth anniversary, before a deep slumber overtook her naked body.

As even the moon retreated from the inhospitable horizon, strange and fitful dreams came upon her. She tossed and turned in the night, her feverish brow victim to wild imaginings, full of visions of werewolf-like creatures creeping around the cabin, circling, surrounding her with deep-breathing low whistles that seemed to hiss and crackle like FIRE?!!! Emma opened her eyes and shrieked in the empty night. There, across the room, stood the tall, dark stranger. She held her breath in terror as he looked up from the fire he had lit in the wide hearth and stared at her inscrutably. His eyes seemed to contain worlds beyond her ken.

“Who – who are you? What do you want?” she cried. The man made no reply, but simply tossed another log onto the fire with barely a flicker of his powerful deep-veined forearm. He breathed in deeply, closing his eyes. Emma’s voice was trembling.

“Look, now, I don’t know what is going on but…”

He silenced her with a look from his piercing green eyes that seemed to cut right through her. Before she even realized what she was doing, Emma raced through the door in a mad dash for freedom, through the door and out into a thick curtain of rain lashing down over her exposed skin. He caught up with her easily, his strong arms grabbing her by the waist and hauling her back into the cabin. She writhed desperately in his grip until she could no more. He held her still, stared into her eyes and finally spoke in halting English, in the manner of one eho seemed to be above words.

“Don’t. It is too dangerous out there for you. You are safe here with me.”

And somehow she knew this was so.

The fire dispensed a low glow to the room. Before she had even recovered from the onslaught of the elements, she was trapped in an embrace as powerful as any of Nature’s Furies. As the storm raged on outside, she stared into the infinite depth of his eyes. And then he was upon her, touching her deep within, roughly of course but with infinite tenderness. Suddenly lightning struck a tree nearby, while its thunder covered her animal moans. He held her tight for what seemed to be an eternity, until the first light of dawn broke the enchanting spell the mountain Gods had woven around them. And he was gone, as swiftly as he had come. Was it but a dream? Emma wondered wistfully, as she drifted off back to sleep smiling, her brow no longer troubled.

Men:

Two blondes. Doing it. Together

Well, this is the epitome of my laziness. I have had my line done since…just about the end of the last post. I have just kept myself busy throughout the day, trying to finish my summer reading and working out, to actually write it down. So here is the opener of my novel:

Today was the same as yesterday, and will repeat tomorrow; it is inevitable.

Should I explain. Well, I had a hard time deciding whether I was writing a fiction based on my life, a biography, or a vampire chronicle, so i went for a sentence that would fit any and all occasions (as this one does). That, and I like the idea of repetitiveness in any of my writing. So there is the explanation. Today is done.

Once again, some of you guys may want to skip tomorrow. I donut know if i will even write the task. I will most likely scan it or just copy verbatim. Good night and see some of you tommorrow.
