October 6th, 2000
It's been a hectic few days.-No, that's an understatement, it's been one hell of a week. Before I started writing this I went back and re-read some of my old entries and it makes me laugh to see what an easy going freak I was. Making shirts by hand, taking odd jobs I hated to earn some extra cash. It almost seems like it happened to another person.
Lemme try and lighten up. I just finished the new entry for the Freakopedia and I'll warn ya, it's a bit of a downer. Talking about Adam always makes me miss him and it's hard to be the stupid and goofy guy when I keep thinking about him.
He'd laugh his butt off if he saw me like this. I was never the one to shed a tear or reminisce about old times.
ABOUT THAT TV SHOW.....
So for the past month I've been getting all these e-mails about a TV show on the Fox network based on me. I didn't know anything about it but I was kinda hoping it was true cause then I could sue 'em and live off the money. With these visions of dollar signs dancing in my head, I sat down at 9 PM and watched Fox just waiting to call an attorney and scream bloody murder.
Well it looks like I ain't a millionaire yet.
The show on at 9 PM was called "CreepyGeeks" (It does sound kinda similar, don't it?) but it doesn't have anything to do with me. Instead it's this oh so wacky cyberpunk sci-fi deal about futuristic hackers working for a top secret government agency. I snapped some pictures from my TV to prove to you guys once and for all there isn't a TV series about me.
An evil webmaster and his sidekick attempt to stop our heroes in the 1st episode of "CreepyGeeks"
I didn't watch the whole thing but it seemed to feature a lot of guns, a lot of bad wardrobe, and a lot of really bad computer skills. Trust me, no one that works with computers has that many adventures in an hour.
The heroic hacker "J-Caplock" downloads a virus into the bad guy's system.
The show is set in Florida, (thumbs up!) but is entirely unrealistic cause in almost every scene they were wearing long sleeves and jackets. Trust me, nobody is wearing a jacket in Florida in October. Besides that, there were mountains in the background of almost every shot. (The only mountain we got in Florida is Space Mountain over at Disney World.)
"Tammy the Enforcer" and "Pretty Boy" get ready to dish out some CreepyGeeks justice.
Oh well, maybe they'll make a TV show about me next season. When it happens I'll make sure and tell 'em about the whole short sleeve thing......
MEANWHILE BACK IN REALITY.....
Enough of the falseness of TV, life goes on in the real world. Jason called not too long ago and wants to go out. He swears that he's got enough money to pay the cover charge down at our favorite watering hole. Just between you and me, I don't believe it. (And Lan, don't tell him I said that)
ONE LAST THING
OK Rahwitdala, here's the shameless plug for your website.
ONE MORE LAST THING
Why do I have a waterhose up to my ear?. It's a long story.
