I know that I promised that I would let folks know the future of this page, so here it is: I’m going to keep it as a way of just letting people know what’s up as well as a source for me to write that which entertains me (and hopefully use as well). I hope to get better about keeping it updated.

You couldn’t help being stupid, but you could’ve stayed home… wait because you were stupid you are staying home.

There are points in life in which we out do ourselves. I mean, we really go above and beyond the call of what is reasonable and just give that 110% effort. Unfortunately, sometimes where we push ourselves most are in the parts of life that, hmm, shall I say are less than distinguishing. In other words, sometimes we’re stupid, and by stupid I mean really stupid, and not just any kind of stupid, but that almost Darwin awardesque kind of stupid. So I decided the other day that I needed to go to Washington to look at some apartments with my future roommate. I hemmed and I hawed about whether to fly or drive, but deciding that driving was just too much of a hassle for such a short period of time, I decided to go online and by a plane ticket. I researched my options, and I found what I thought to be a pretty good option, so I ordered a ticket. On the day of my flight, I went to the airport to check-in, but there was a problem. There was no ticket reserved under my name. The lady asked to look at my flight itinerary. It was then that my stupidity was revealed. It seems that rather than buying a ticket for the Tuesday in the last full week of July, I had purchased one for the Tuesday of the last full week of August. I could chalk it up to any number of different excuses, but let’s face it, I was an idiot. I never bothered to read what month I was buying for. The end result is that I am not traveling to DC, because, well, to fix my stupidity would cost more than its worth. Instead, I will just elect to use the ticket on its given dates, or I will pay the cost of changing ticket and use it at a later date.
