Stuff that happens to me, Terri.

Dun-Dun! That's the Law & Order Sound Effect...

I often wonder what would happen if I would die in some mysterious way, or in some way not so mysterious, and the police had to go through all my personal possessions to find out what happened to me. Like what would they come up with about me, or decide what my life was all about. This sometimes worries and troubles me. I think, if someone just had a chance to look at my possessions, what would they come to realize about me? Firstly, I'm a total mess. Like, my room has a basic neatness going on, but I have a lot of crap, and my desk is in shambles. I own a look of books, and a lot of Xena paraphernalia, so there's that. I have random post-it notes everywhere. like the one I'm looking at right now says "Showtime is Channel 17", and Judge Fudge, "I'm far too busy being delicious." I have a lot of books, so they'd probably decide that I read a lot, so maybe they'd check the library to see it I know anybody there. They'd be wrong of course, because who has time to read for pleasure when they've got to read Henry the 4th by, like, tomorrow? I have a lot of Chinese stuff, of course; flashcards, books, CD's, so they'd go and talk to the Chinese teacher on campus and they'd be right about that. I have a couple of guitars, and whatnot so they'd probably think that I was a teenage white guy. But there are long black "Afro"-like hairs everywhere, so they'd quickly get over that delusion. If they'd check my computer they'd see all the half finished writings of a wannabe, guitar tabs for practice, and maybe more than my fair share of porn (Just kidding Mom and Dad!). They'd probably assume I had some kind of pen fetish, and that I couldn't make up my mind about what I wanted to do in my life. I have a condom in my drawer (even though I'm not sexually active, (it was free!) and I've a pack of cigarettes, even though I don't smoke. Anyway, I figure they wouldn't be able to peg me down all too well. That's kinda where my life is right now; a totally unpredictable, unexplainable, roller coaster ride. A couple months ago I was in Beijing, China, and now I'm ruminating over the biggest decision of my life. Let's just say that if this was Law and Order, the cops wouldn't even know where to start, and I guess that I like my life that way.

*I totally want a potbellied big now!!!

**Didn't I say, totally random!

I sometimes wonder these things too. You know what you should do? You should ask your friends to send you pictures of the stuff in their rooms and you do your own mini investigation into our lives.

It'd be fun. Let's make a meme out of it. If you agree to it, you can be the first...then tag people who have to be investigators next.

Also, why do you have cigs? And what brand are they?

Dude I totally agree with you, and we should do it right away. Like, we'll see the pictures, and then photoshop words and arrows and stuff. It'll be awesome. That's it, we're doing it.
