Christmas Break


A few weeks ago I asked my mom if she thought she could order me some Ben Folds piano music for Christmas so I could learn how to play some songs. I’m not a very good piano player but I thought if we could get super dumbed down version of his songs then I could fool around with them and try to learn them. Well, my mom has no idea who Ben Folds is but she thought it sounded like a good idea. She made a few calls to her people in Watertown and they were able to order a book of Ben Folds for me.

On the 1/16/06 Mom went to Watertown and they were able to pick it up for me. On the way home Tom was looking at it and reading the words. Rugh-Ro! He found the words Bastard and Bitch and other not so nice things in there. I had thought of this problem like a week after we had ordered it, but then i forgot about it until my mom confronted me with this discovery. She wasn’t very happy with me. I could see death itself in her glare.

She read off the lyrics of some songs and Ben Folds doesn’t seem to have a very good outlook on life. My mom wanted to know if I was depressed, if I thought that the world sucks, that I hate myself, and all this other stuff.

My reply was, “No, ets ok! I have ze titan! No, ets ok!”-(Alfred French Accent Applied).

My mom was pretty livid and I told her that his songs were actually bouncy and happy sounding songs. He may use some foul language now and then but he’s not too bad. Anyway, my mom is not keeping the book. She’s taking it back to the store where I should go and buy it after she does that.lol.jk.

Well, my mom I think is very dissapointed in me, actually i think she told me that, and I think Tom was pretty suprised that I actually listened or wanted music with those type of lyrics. I’m sure he’s pretty dissappointed in me too.

Before I left I played my Theme Song for mom and I think that helped smooth out a lot of her fears about me. During the song the sun came back out from hiding, a rainbow came over our house, a family of bunnies started dancing on our deck, and some pretty birds came out and started tweeting to the song. I know it made me happier.

Christmas Break is over. Game Over.
This is the last weekend of freedom before me and my fellow collegians head back to college. Some, well, most college kids are back in school already, but a few of us are still around. We are scarce though, like the tree people. Lets look over what I did this month of break

I bet I prolly watched 42 more movies than that but i can’t remember them all.

*Watched a lot of boys and girls basketball games.
>Played pep band at games
>DQ’d it up after games
*Went to the movies
>King Kong (pretty good)
>The Chronicles of Narnia (alright)

I kind of went into this post agreeing with what a brilliant man wrote earlier,”But really with posts I think people just like having something new to read. I know I get excited whenever anyone posts even if they are just posting about how they got in some homoerotic situation and things went down real real bad.” This means people just like to read new stuff. This break went by too fast and I don’t really want to go back to college now. I feel like going back to the days of highschool where I see my hs friends everyday. College is awsome, but after hanging out with everybody again, i’d choose highschool. Oh well, sucks to be me.

Break is over.
Gameover.

It’s almost one in the morning
I can’t go to bed
So I’lljust sit on this chair
And write this poem instead

And then I’ll post it
For the world to see
To make you all happy
Cuz I know you all want to hear from me

What can I say about the new year
Besides that it is brand new
I have no new years resolutions
I gave up nothing and have nothing extra to do

I forgot about it
But it’s really okay
Because I like me the way I am
I like me everyday

This break has been going well
It has been super tight
I can do anything I want
Which, with me, is perfectly alright

I’ve been playing basketball
I like to slash to the hole
But I can’t make a lay-up
Or as a soccer announcer would say “I can’t score a goal”

I can drain the midshot
And sometimes from 3pt. land
But it doesn’t matter because I can’t dunk it
I’ll never feel like a real man

I’m also Saving the World
Which is a pretty big chore
I’m good at building walls
Enemies knock them down so I just build more

By Saving the World
I mean AoM
A computer game of doom
Your doom, if i fail my friends

I’ve had friends over to watch movies
Because Star Wars some have never seen
It’s amazing Anikan can go so bad
And how the Sith are so super mean:(

I had a New Years Eve party
A couple days ago
I had a good time
Although half the list were no-shows

So I made a new list
A “Super Cool” people list to be exact
So now I’m super cool
And that is just a fact

We played poker
And we played with just us six
and we played for fun
because of the lack of participants

Then we played Boulderdash
Where I don’t try to win
For example
This is is what I wrote about famous person Rachel?? Duffin

“Little miss Duffin sat eating her muffin until Chuck Norris roundhouse kicked her into a glacier”

I hoped you liked this simple poem
All of you out there
I’m done writing
Because I’m sore from this chair

I hope this year goes well for you
This year that is brand new
I am going to bed
and I bid you a Dane Cook adieu

The day is Thursday, and the setting is the kitchen of my Grandma Harriets house, located in Big Stone City right by the Big Stone Park. My family is there, the Val Rausch family is there, and so is the Andy Rausch family from Minneapolis. We are all gathered around the table enjoying our feast when suddenly a high pitched cry filled the air making me cringe. It was just baby Charlie crying from upstairs into the walkie-talkie type of thingermabob. That’s how supper started and that’s all i can remember of that supper at all.

After supper came the game playing of Apples to Apples. This consisted of Bryce, Miles, Sue, Andy, Aaron, Val, and Molly and was very fun. I had played this once before a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away. The first game I got completely wasted. Let me clarify this, i wasn’t drunk like normal, i just got blown away by the competition. Let me clarify this, I wasn’t blown away as in shot by a bazooka or anything, i had just got beat pretty badly. Let me clarify this, I didn’t get beat like getting hit or anything, i got beat as in i lost to other people. I hope you understand what I am saying to you.

The second game I dominated with excellent word choices, playing to other players strengths and weaknesses. I devised a plan that if it had gone extremely wrong, would have forced me to give everybody roundhouse kicks to the face. I ended up getting second, losing to Molly by my own hand. I killed myself in a way. Let me clarify this, I didn’t actually kill myself because then I would have to have been immediately reincarnated in order to be writing this. I sort of handed her the first place on a silver platter. Let me clarify this, I didn’t actually hand it to her, because first place isn’t a tangible object, and there was no silver platter. She won because of me, let me put it that way. I hope you understand what I am saying to you.

Anyways, i got second, which is a major improvement from the last game and the game from ages ago where I finished last. I have never lived that down and it will haunt me till the end of my days.

Afterwards I headed of to good ‘ole Miles and Bryces house where we were going to hang out and eat stuff and then watch War of the Worlds which I have never seen. Then suddenly, my cell phone rang. It was dad.

He wanted me to return home NOW because the weather was terrible, the roads were bad, and the weather was terrible. Snow was everywhere in the air just like oxygen and the wind made it 2x as bad. Let me clarify this, Snow(2x) = Wind/Ditches=42. This in turn led to the brilliance of Bryce suggesting that I just spend the night. I was super pumped as I called my dad back with this amazing plan.

“Dad, can I just spend the night here, and then I can meet you at work tomorrow?”, David said.
“David, I went in the ditch so you need to come home and help.” – said my dad.

Game Over.

I went home in Val’s truck, helped shovel snow and whatever else is trapped within snow out of the van’s way, and then helped pull my dad out. It was tough, but with our powers combined, there isn’t nothing me and my dad can’t handle unless it’s mechanical or really tough. Actually, the van came out quite easily with the help of the truck so I guess as long as it is easy, me and my dad can get the job done. Ever need help killing mice, my dad is good at that. He’s killed many a mouse in his day. He’s very quick. He’s like a fish.

In the end, I ended up at home for the night. I realized my triceps were extremely sore from shoveling all that snow along with a bunch of sand Tom and I had shoveled and spread on people’s driveways earlier that morning. That sand sharing was a worthless cause as it didn’t last more than a day before a foot of snow was so rudely dumped onto everybodies lives. Anyway, triceps=pain, meaning hurts playing basketball, doing pushups, stretching arms, and oddly enough, playing the piano. Good news, doesn’t hinder my gaming capabilities making saving the world and keeping everybody safe, possible. That’s all for tonite – You stay classy San Diego (means a whale’s vagina!)

My first college break has finally befallen me and so far it is going mighty fine. So far I’ve done a lot of sleeping, saving the world(gaming), and other things.

Day 1 /Friday / – slept in until 3:30. As i walked up the steps from our basement to the kitchen, my sister walked in, back from her day at school. I was super suprised because I got 13 hours of sleep, the most in my life.

Day 2 / Saturday / – I slept in until about 2:30, so i got another 11 or 12 hours of sleep, another long length of sleep for me.

Day 3 / Sunday / – I got up at 8 in the morning to go to church. Afterwards my family headed over to Miles and Bryces house where we had brunch. After brunch we all went to my grandmas house where we watch football. Also, before the game, Miles, Bryce, and their sisters Molly and Brenna along with my brothers and sisters all took a picture in the snow together for the family calendar. We all layed on each other kinda in a pyramid type form. I layed mostly on Miles. My hat got pulled down over my eyes so you really couldn’t see me for most of it. I didn’t care about that though. The only thing i was worried about….i was getting a boner. Sorry Miles, but that wasn’t my knee in your…yeah…next. Gamed and stuff. Saved the world. Everybody slept safely that night.

Day 4 / Monday / – I slept in until 2 o’clock in the afternoon. I received about 11 to 12 hours of sleep again! I don’t get that much normally. I gamed again and stuff. Saved the world. You know, the usual. Everybody slept safely that night.

Day 5 / Tuesday / – On Tuesday I got up at about 5:30 in the morning. The reason for this is because I went to Unity Square with dad and Dan to go play basketball. My dad goes their before work and he meets some guys that he plays basketball and raquetball with so Dan and I wanted to go with him. I have to because I have gotten fat. I haven’t gained any weight, so that means my muscle is deteriorating and being replaced with fat. Its happening, I guess its an epidemic or something. Its sweeping the nation, worse than the Asian bird flu from what I hear. My mom is pretty sad but I’m kinda like, oh well, it happens. Sucks to be me. Thats why I made my current background that says “Sucks to be me” quote unquote. That way i won’t forget.
That night I went to an Ortonville basketball game where Ortonville won 76-73 i think. Both teams shot the lights out and played well. Great game to watch. Afterwards a bunch of us went to DQ to eat some ice-cream and gang bang and stuff. Chris was being a cock-block.

Day 6 / Wednesday / – Wednesday night, after gaming and saving the world, I took Peter Rausch home at about 2:30 in the morning. We ended up talking in his driveway until about 5:40 in the morning so I didn’t get to bed until about 6 in the morning. What we discussed was the answer to the ultimate question. What is the answer to life, the universe, and everything? We decided that life is a mystery, the universe is very big, and that everything else equals 42.

Day 7 / Thursday / -Friday night I went to watch Ortonville vs. Milbank where Milbank won handily. Ortonville was down by eight at the half, and then got blown out the rest of the way. The highlight of the game was at halftime when Bryce Rausch went out to shoot a 3 pointer for a dollar. The entire crowed started chanting “Bryce!Bryce!Bryce!” He got the ball, looked at the hoop, and then he looked at the crowed. He pumped the ball in the air with one hand getting the crowed even more worked up. He then looked directly at me and winked. I don’t know what that was all about, but everybody looked at me like I was some sort of god or something. He then looked at the rim with concentration, cocked the ball, and fired. Time slowed down, the crowed noise became part of the background, almost non-existent, as the ball, with its perferct backward rotation and arc, flew towards the rim. As it came down I and I alone saw Lord Voldemort burst through the gym doors and blast the ball with such a complex spell that no one else in the gym noticed the now awkward path of the ball. The moment I saw him I had pulled out my wand and pointed it him. I said a spell, but it had no effect. Actually, all I said was “Crap!”. It didn’t matter anyway cuz he had cursed the ball and had vanished before I had even opened my mouth. That Voldemort is good. If only Dumbledore had been there.a buck a ball

Needless to say, the ball bounced off the side of the rim, the crowd almost started rioting because they were so shocked they didn’t know what else to do, and Bryce was so heartbreaking he was crouched over on the ground, his arms covering his face. The only thing that stopped the crowed from doing some damage and throwing some screaming people was the players had returned to the court. Nobody had time to be angry or sad anymore, it was time to be vigilant and pay attention to the halftime shoot around.crying
After the game, a group of us talked for a while, deciding what we were going to do that night, and how me and a friend or two or however many are going to spend next week watching about 10-1000 movies. Goal 1-To watch all 6 star war movies. Goal 2- Watch other movies as approved later on. Goal 3- See goal 2.
After that little holding of council, me, Chris Smith, Tyler Rolfes, and Peter Rausch left to go to Miles’ and Bryce’s house. On the way to our car in the school parking lot we bombarded Chris’s GF’s car with snowballs. Showed her who’s boss.
Once we made it to the Rausch house we began saving the world. We had a AoM game of 5 on 4. It was the craziest battle of all time. It was me, Dan my brother, Tony Rolfes, and Tyler Rolfes vs. Bryce Rausch, Lindsey Nelson (Bryce’s GF), Chris, Miles, and Peter. The game last 3 hours and didn’t get done until 2:30 in the morning. My main mission was to maintain the walls. May not sound glamorous, but it isn’t. I am a wall/tower builder when called upon by friends and allies. Allies you might say are friends, but sometimes they aren’t. Some allies might think we’re friends, but we aren’t. I might be in a Allied relationship grudgingly because the other nation could kill me. My strategy is to win. If I can’t win, I have somebody get their queen pregnant through the internet so we have to be allies. So far I’m the only person who has gotten a girl pregnant over the internet on the first try. I did it at DSU, its pretty cool. That prolly makes me the best at it, but I refuse to do it anymore cuz that would be kind of like cheating on the mother of my child which undermines my nations values. Anyways….

Day 8 / Friday / – Got up at 5:30 in the morning to go play basketball again. Shot pretty well, drained some shots, struggled a bit from 3-point land. Missed every lay-up I took. I got home around 7 and then slept until 2. Then I got up and went to the Big Stone Gym and played basketball till 3-3:15. I was pretty hot for a while inside the arc. I continued to miss every lay-up and 3 pointer I shot. No one is suprised that I miss lay-ups. That is what I’m am renouned for. I then went home and kind of felt sick. I hadn’t eaten at all so I was feeling a bit shaky and weak so I ate some EZ mac. I took a shower, and then read Prey by Michael Crichton. I also napped in-between reading. The book is really good and interesting. I’m halfway through and i started it Thursday I think. At 8 I went to Kelsey’s (Chris’s GF) with Tyler, Chris Fellows and Dana(his GF). We watched Bewitched, and Chris and Amy Smith showed up at the end of the movie. From there Tyler, Chris, and I went to the Rausch house to begin the Save the World operation. The first thing I did was eat their supper. Saving the world takes energy so I needed to eat. Everybody except Peter was their and we had a 4 on 4 game where Dan, Chris, Miles, and I got wasted away. I mean, we weren’t drunk or anything, we got wasted as in killed. Like a rabbit being suffocated by millions of nanomytes. Suffocated dead.
So far break has been pretty wicked awsome and stuff. It is 3 in the morning and I have just been told right now it is Christmas Eve so I’m pretty pumped. That means Santa is coming tonite and I can’t wait to get my loot. I hope everybody has a Merry Christmas. I saved the world again tonite so you can all sleep in peace.
