Some personal bests, worsts and Top 5’s from 2008:
Best New Friend: Amber De Leggas. Technically we have known each other since 2004, when we met at Young Blowout’s First Communion, but we actually started hanging out this year.
2007: Don Comerica
2006: Chris Ziggler
2005: Mitch Canopus
2003: Jeff Vajayjay
2002: Did not make any new friends
2001: Milo Nicks
2000: Daniel Veal
1999: Lyle Mead
Best New Breakfast Food: Oatmeal with Apple Sauce. The hot oatmeal and the cold applesauce combine to make a poor man’s apple pie a la mode (although significantly healthier). Many people can not stand the thought of this much gruel in one bowl, but after years of consuming various kinds of slop I legitmately enjoy the varying textures and temperatures of this dish which I sometimes refer to as “Super Gruel.”
Top 5 Nights Out:
Five: Cinco De Mayo-People got drunk and pretended to be Mexican.
Four: Fourth of July Bar Crawl-People got drunk and pretended to be patriotic.
Three: NC State vs. South Florida Football Game-People got drunk and pretended to be college football fans.
Two: St. Patrick’s Day-People got drunk and pretended to be Irish.
One: Halloween: People got drunk and pretended to be pagans.
Best Video Games (Based on amount of time I spent playing them)
Three: Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe-I have been debating in my head who would win in a fight between Sub-Zero and The Flash since I was 14 and I finally got the chance to find out...whichever one I’m controlling!
Two: LittleBigPlanet-Some people say playing a cute platforming game with a main character named “Sack Boy” is not the way a grown man should be spending his time, these people are lame.
One: Grand Theft Auto 4-I have been playing this since May (with some extended breaks) and I am only about 20% finished. This is a combination of the complexity of the game and my ineptness at video games, but the first 20% of this game is better than every other game I played this year.
