February 12, 1998
For the first time I feel like a reporter! (now if I can only find one of those press signs to put in my fedora. Hum, maybe I should get a fedora as well.) The local paper had a photo of this big ass frog this boy caught in Lake Apopka. (a nearby famously polluted lake) I summoned up my best social interaction skills and called the reporter.
(insert sound of ringing phone being answered)
Oh yea, can I speak to the reporter who did the giant frog story?
Hold please, while I transfer you
(sound of canned music being played at a very high volume)
Is this the reporter who did the giant frog story?
Yes it is, How can I help you?
Well I run a web site and I was wondering if I could interview the kid who found the giant frog.
Well that would actually be up to the kid. You would need to talk to him.
er . . .OK. what's his number.
And the rest is history. Be sure and check out the amazing in-depth field report of the boy child and his amazing battle with the giant frog o' doom. (sounds exciting don't it?)
I finished editing the skate video and it's looking pretty phat (as all the home boys say). That reminds me I need to take my friend's VCR back to him.
If you wanna copy of the video you can click here to go to the MonsterFreaks store. The video is called "MonsterFreaks" (see how everything interconnects?) That's correct, I am a genius.
Oh yea, what else . . . . Since the suggestion box was being filled up here by a certain e-mailer (who shall remain nameless but the first letter in the name starts with LAN) I have taken it upon myself to start a guest book. Click here to go to it. (or you can find a link on the home page if I didn't screw everything up) No seriously, thanks Lan, it's a good idea and now I can actually keep track of everyone and use the information it gathers to follow your every move, to know when you are sleeping, to know when you are awake. Have you been good? I know, I KNOW . . . .
but I digress. . . .feel free to sign the guest book (cue up creepy Peter Lorre music) and if you know anything I should know, drop me an e-mail
Till next time
