So I realize that no one really knows who the Komets are or why you should care, but this is my blog so there! :P

The Komets are an IHL hockey team based here in my town. Normally I don’t watch hockey, but this was the championship (the super Bowl of IHL hockey). So I went, since it was game 7, and we won, but it took three overtimes.

So I didn’t get to bed til 2 last night.

But still….

Alright, I’m done bragging. You may go back to your regularly scheduled lives.

A long awaited update, the Packers lost, and my random tagginess

Alright, so it’s been roughly 17 years since I last made any type of significant update (I did say roughly). Why am I updating now? Why not? Can’t I update without you being suspicious of me? What did I do? Yeesh.

Oh, that and I met someone.

Wait, that didn’t come out right. Not right at all.

Let’s rewind. About 10 years ago (man, I feel old. I can say that and actually remember what happened 10 years ago), my family stumbled onto this little thing called the World Wide Web (or Internet for all you young’uns out there). After a year of feeling my way around I started chatting with this guy out in California who decided to start forwarding me crap that he found funny. Well, I found it funny too, but that’s not the point. He took it and ran with it and created a site called JokeMail (later called MyJokeMail) and I was lucky subscriber number 7.

But that’s not the point.

Along with this site came this wonderfully time consuming message board. Or forum. Or post site. Or big blog. Or Big Al’s harem. Whatever you want to call it. It quickly became my favorite hangout, and I was more than willing to sacrifice sleep, food, games, women, and grades to spend time on it.

Lo and behold, I met a girl on this message board and we became fast friends. It took us forever to meet in real life, and by then real life had caught up to us to stop us from doing anything besides being friends (le sigh). But we went through it all…from her locking herself inside a house, to me watching my roommate attack the toilet with a hammer. I don’t quite remember why a hammer was needed on the toilet, but that’s another story entirely.


So why the stroll down memory line? Because it’s my blog that’s why!! Oh, and because the other day I popped online into a chat program for the first time in a year or two, and wouldn’t you know it, there she was! The lovely xchantis vara who has grown up to become Tanga (I think of power rangers and space drinks when I say it out loud, but to each their own). We traded blogs, and went on our merry way. Well, now that she has my blog, I figured I should update.

And now I realized, what’s the point in updating if all I’m going to talk about is stuff she already knows? Ah, that is a wicked question. Wish I had an answer.

And that my friends, is a long, boring, useless blog update (though I’ve yet to see a useful blog update, after all, how are blogs useful in the long run?)

Why oh why did I watch the Packers Game? I wasn’t even drunk, which may have made it look better. Man, first the Cubs disappoint and now the Packers? There were a lot of questionable play calling going on, but still.

Yeesh. Well, there’s always nex—no dammit, this year. This year!!

Here’s what you do:

Go to and type “(your name) needs”.
Then pick the 5 best ones and post them here.
FOR EXAMPLE if your name is James, you would put this in to the search engine: “James needs” (with the quotes included!)


1. Chad needs a single or two parent home that would encourage him to live.
2. Chad needs a totally kickass high-fivin’ theme to match.
3. Chad needs to extend its communications infrastructure quickly to participate in today’s global economy.
4. Chad needs to pave many roads to open up commercial routes and facilitate access to schools and clinics.
5. Chad needs to let loose, and date a fun girl like Mischa.
Honorable mention: Chad needs a blog.

What makes this fun is that there is a country and a football player with my name. :D
