+2 years.

And once again I effed up the blog writing promise. A lot has happened in two years. And, to be honest, a lot of it I don't feel like talking about.. yet. 

My friend Jackie and I have started writing a book. Not like some weird fan-fiction that we write back and forth. This is a self-help book. A self-help book filled with one-liners that fit specifically into events in our lives. It's a gem. It is called, "Shit Or Get Off The Pot: A self-help book". I predict a fortune. Right now it is only published in Jackie's checkbook. Look out for it.

It's Been A While...

Neither of us have written a blog post since January. I guess this was a busy semester. Speaking of semesters, I feel like sharing what I have learned by reading the bathroom walls throughout my time at HSU. Here goes:

Virgins = Unicorns
One person likes, one person thinks the unicorn is fat. I like that this person likes being a unicorn!

I Should Be Getting Paid For This:

The original person wrote $100. The ante then was upped to $1 Million. By this logic, so far today I should have been paid $8 Million. I haven't left the house yet.

Curves Are Sexy:

I like this one because when you are sitting there, doing your business, you look up and are reminded of how sexy real women are. Sometimes when I'm on the pot I need a reminder...

Help A Chicken Out:
Word up little chicky. 

The Water:

This very well could have been put up by Troy in a disguised attempt to remind me to drink water throughout the day. It wouldn't be the first time...

I'm game.

The Man of 4 Words:
This guy sits above the sinks. I have hung out with him many times while washing my hands. I came to really appreciate his tatted up knees.

And that is it for this post. I can't make any promises, but I will make an effort to log on more.

I woke up this morning which happens to be Saturday January 29th, just five weeks until training camp! Scottsdale woohoo! Parched dry air of Arizona where the authorities may just toss our beloved Kung-Fu Panda Sandoval back to Venezuela, what a terrible thought. I also watched the Day in the Life: Tim Lincecum, which turned out better than I thought it would. Lincecum isn't as personable as Wilson so we don't always get to see our Big Time Timmy Jim! His house was SICK, panaramic views of Puget Sound and the Space Needle! The topic I am concerned about is the adjusting roles of both Rowand and Zito. First, Zito should have the fifth spot on lockdown but what if we allowed Runzler or an even edgier thought Romo to fight with Zito for the spot and the conselation would be the long reliever. The decision would have to be made at the beginning of the season because Zito is crazy and would totally flip out about being put back in the bullpen, but I suggest he embelish the thought of being a strong, long reliever. Ideally after his contract is over he is looking at a substantial salary decrease from the astronomical eight digits he is recieving now. So I challenge Zito to fight to keep the fifth spot, or relish in a simplier yet important job behind young and unproven arms like Bumgarner and Sanchez. And Rowand, who could finally pay off! I would love to see Rowand do well, but I have never embraced the guy as a Giant. I always relate the signing of Rowand to getting that guy who broke his nose making that cool catch in Philly. Now after a few seasons of sub-par offensive years I understand what Rowand is. Rowand is an excellent defensive backup to Torres, much the way I thought of Cody Ross the first few weeks after we signed him. Rowand has the experience to put numbers up this year but he must work on that long slow swing with gaping holes! Rowand please be worth the almost 13 million that we will be paying you! Wow... first blog in a while. It felt good. -Troy

I have a blog?

Alright Bloggy Blog Blog, it has been brought to my attention by a loyal blog reader (out of 2) that it has been 5 weeks since the last post. Now, I was hoping that the flash mob would be enough to hold everyone over for months to come, but this was not the case. But, in all seriousness, we have just been ridiculously busy. School let out for winter break and it seems that when school is out of session life gets even busier. I can not wait for it to start back up again so I can be on the repetitive schedule of work and school without all of life's other distractions. We traveled to Oregon for Christmas and had a really good time with family from both sides. We rang in the new year in my own style (wrapped in a blanket, watching Andy Cohen) and it was pretty amazing, plus I didn't wake up with a massive hangover...

Lately, I have spent my time staring at the amount of things I need to get accomplished in less than a month to apply for post-graduate credentialing. It's going to be quite a bitch, not to mention the fact I have to get re-certified in CPR and those dummy dolls that they use seriously give me nightmares. But in order to combat the constant anxiety that goes along with applications I have submerged myself in Oscar-Mania.

You see, my friend Jack-Attack's family puts on an Oscar Contest that I usually participate in but I rarely watch many of the movies nominated and, needless to say, I'm pretty sure I come in dead last every year. But this year I have a mission: Operation Sweep the Oscars. Now I'm pretty sure I still have no chance at this thing against some pretty extreme movie buffs, but I like my taste in movies and I have faith that the academy will agree with me. Why wouldn't they? So I have been watching movies like no other. Well, not that much, but more than I usually do. This week I watched "The Town" and "Black Swan"...oh yea and "The Craigslist Killer" but I don't think Lifetime Movies are allowed. I thought "The Town" was alright, but I thought that some characters could have been better developed and I just don't like bank robbers, ya know? But people wang out when actors become directors so I understand the hype, but I liked "Gone Baby Gone" way more. 

Now, on to "Black Swan". First off, I hate the theater. I hate paying that much money to watch a movie, I hate how cold it is, I hate how the popcorn tastes, but most of all I hate sharing my movie-going experience with other people. They always ruin it for me. I hate it when they insist on sitting in my row so that I have to step over them to use that restroom (something that I frequently do). Anyways, I figured if I went to a matinee it wouldn't be as bad. The situation sucked. A bunch of old people that didn't give two cents about my experience and preferred to eat loudly, talk loudly, jump out of control during the "scary" parts, and be overall big pains in my ass. Alright, enough of that rant, back to the movie. I am just now starting to formulate an opinion on it. When I left the theater I didn't know what to think. There were parts of it that I found amazing and some that I found completely unnecessary, like the multiple awkward masturbation scenes. I just keep questioning if I really understand what the main point of the movie was. I think I just have to agree with the overall consensus of the old ladies when we were exiting the theater...."What a trip!"

Overall though, I liked "Black Swan" better than "The Town" because days later I am still thinking about it and different scenes throughout and when something keeps my attention that long....I like it. Plus, I'm pretty sure Natalie Portman has been my hero ever since "Anywhere But Here".

Alright blogtime, I have to go to work now but I promise to try and be more consistent on my posts here and I will be on Troy's case to get some of his stuff up...To know us is to know flakes...

All I Want For Christmas Is...

If you know me at all you know that I have a fantasy of living in a musical. I think it is completely logical. In fact, if I had my way this situation would be an everyday part of my life:

 I realize that it was a planned undercover event, but I would be stoked with even that. Recently, there has been a new interest in flash mobs! I am so stoked on these things! Troy and I literally just spent an hour watching clip after clip of flash mobs all over the world. I find it quite entertaining. I like finding the people that I think will break out in dance. Troy thinks when the dances end it is hilarious to watch the people walk away like it's totally normal. A few weeks ago it was featured on Modern Family (one of the funniest scenes yet and a situation I can totally see Troy and I being in with me being Cam) and it made me want to be in one even more.

If I can't be in one, then I would really like to be where one takes place. Can you imagine how hilarious and entertaining it must have been to have been at Ohio State University during this?

Or what about shopping? What if you were buying some pants and this happened?

So for Christmas I want to either witness or take place in a flash mob! Since this probably won't happen to me anytime soon I'm glad I have GLEE to hold me over!

I don't know why the New York shirts are backward! This last video is hilarious. I would pee myself if I was at this place. I love how they put in the audience's commentary with the video.

My "Hopey Changey Stuff!"

Today an unknown publisher released something like 250,000 documents dating back to 1966 about Iraq and Afghanistan.Something like a third of those documents were classified until today and every single document sheds light on the secretive agenda that the U.S. government has embarked on for the last two and some change centuries! The WikiLeaks website and its publisher have given me, and hopefully many others, a sense of hope. The leak of classified information is not necessarily detrimental to the people of the United States! It is extremely detrimental to the U.S. government and how it does business with the outside world! The separation of these two ideas is very important in this discussion because the puppet media will establish these two ideas as one in the same. The people need the government to go about its business a different way so that peace and prosperity can reign. The peace and prosperity of not just U.S. citizens but also the world, in which the free market again and again decides against.
The free market does seem to be the aggressor in this discussion and will also be what is referred to as the government's "business" and both should be seen as oppressing and unequal. The more and more the website WikiLeaks publishes, the more and more citizens will recognize the hypocrisy that lies in the "business" of the government. I vote and pay taxes as well as consider myself a stand-up citizen who spends when I should spend and well, spends when I shouldn't spend, how American of me right?  But, the oppression of the United States is well documented and for the most part taught in colleges that the government allocates funding to. Yet it's a larger issue than just civil rights which should be regarded as the most important legislation in U.S. history (14th Amendment, Civil Rights Act of 1964). The oppression is rooted in poverty, and the inequality is in capital. The majority of citizens in my opinion are negligent to the oppression though, but why when most everyone knows there is a large proportion of poor and a small proportion of wealthy? This question is absent an answer but hope was released by WikiLeaks today, and we should all celebrate today as the beginning of change, or something like Independence Day II!
The mass media is now reporting that the website WikiLeaks will release more classified information in the near future. This time the unknown publisher will embark on domestic issues, HOORAY! My favorite! It will release documents and emails, from what Dr. Gonzo would call "the swine," also known as bank Chief Executive Officers, as well as others. The hope is growing within me and the belief in liberty derives from the hope that one day it will be implemented. A country cannot call itself the "Land of the Free" and also embark on its oppressive agenda. So, what's the point of this discussion? Maybe this is a thank you directed at the publisher of WikiLeaks, and okay, maybe its also a crazy rant about extremely relevant information, either way I support the release of all classified documents under the precedence under the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence, "we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed,[by something], with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.", and of Abraham Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address where he states the United States is a nation, "of the people, by the people, for the people." My hope is sometimes hidden within my positivist attitude, but today it was let out to breath until I remembered what happened in the last election.

Here We Are!

We are Troy and Rosy. We think we might have some pretty cool things to say. We are also pretty hip, so we put an NPR newsfeed on our blog. The deal is: Troy writes in brown and Rosy writes in blue. We want to write about things that go on in our lives and the things that go on outside of our lives. Clearly, we are centered. Basically, we both want to rediscover our own personal writing voices. Voices that we feel we once had, but have somehow gotten lost in the stacks of analytical essays and various monotonic writings that have taken over our lives the past few years. And here we go.......

Because we are at a loss for our first topic of blogging I decided the best thing to do in this situation is clearly to introduce the family. It seems like a logical choice.

Troy & Rosy

I would describe us as two anything-but-typical people living in typical situations. And yea, even I don't know what that means but I think it sounds right. We are lovers, fighters and most importantly best friends. By the way, I hope to never say a cheese ball thing like that again, but again it seemed fitting. I refuse to write a description of myself but I can write one for Troy (who will probably commonly be known under the form of many various nicknames; a childhood habit I never could break). Troy is a pretty friendly guy with a common knowledge of all things sports. He will spout facts of all kinds at any given notice. He credits this to being an avid reader of the Sporting Green even before he could read. I think he watches an intense amount of ESPN. He is also a caring guy and basically the most supportive person I know. He knows how to crack a joke and I like that. With a list that could go on forever on different aspects of Troy's awesomeness, I think I'll just say I'm definitely a fan of the guy. P.S. He cuddles with his cat every night, which just happens to be on my list of priorities in an awesome person.
 Well now, I am a little more than sports but I do enjoy most things sports. Rosy is a Northern California native and I am a transplant in the region from Reno. We met in the 5th grade when we spent the year in Mrs. Wilde's classroom together. In 2002 we began our relationship with a date to "Ice Age" at the ripe age of 14. Rosy is a little under 8 months older than I am, and her vast wisdom usually proves me wrong. Yet, most of the time we agree, even on which sports teams we should root for! Go SF Giants! We did not marry each other because of religion or what I like to call "parent pressure," but instead because we love each other. Anyway, I feel the need to end this as soon as possible...

Mylo Mychelle is a special cat. She has the toes to prove it! She has these crazy feet, a total of 14 claws on the collective front feet. Mylo was brought into our lives after we accidentally came across her picture on a website promoting shelter adoption. It probably helped that Mylo looked A LOT like Rosy's first cat, Morris Maurice! She refuses to take pictures and prefers to spend the majority of her time on the bed or eating. She frequently fights with her brother, Frankenstein and has a very close relationship with Troy. She acts like a badass, but is one of the most timid cats I have ever known. I took Mylo under my wing because she needed some help after her time in Cat Jail.


Frankenstein (or Fraynkee) Lucypher is the newest member of the bunch, but he has been in the family the longest. He moved over to our house two years ago and much to Mylo's dismay he fits right in. His favorite things to do are scratch at the door over and over every day ANNOYING!!! and lick everything he can get his tongue on. Needless to say, he gets the attention he feels he deserves. Fraynkee sleeps really weird too, he goes face down?!


Lillian (Lilly) LuLu is from the island of misfits. Her first mom couldn't handle her distinct personality and decided cats were not for her. After repeated claimers, by myself, that I would not end up with the cat I eventually did. Even though I'm allergic to cats we have a total of three, yeah, three. But I enjoy each one and probably couldn't live without these rascals. It was love at first sight. Lilly is my homey. Though she constantly tells me "f you" in her own little ways, I can tell she loves me as well. She enjoys catching bugs and climbing trees. She refuses to clean herself , once she peed on me while she was being brushed, or allow bathing so she is, at any given time, carrying an entire forest under her coat. She also enjoys pretending to live in various neighbors' houses and sleeping inside any car with the window down. She's basically a boss.

And there you have it. A blog post.
