no common point of understanding

I just watched a video of a giraffe giving birth. It's possibly one the the oddest things I have ever seen. While I'm on the subject of hooved (or is it behooved?) animals, I would like to call attention to the sheer awesome nature of the miniature donkey. They are kind of like dogs but way goofier. They probably ride better too. Being indoors so much really makes me forget about how alien the world really is.

I drew a picture of a giraffe with a short neck. The results were extremely disappointing.

This is the willow tree next to my hall. The leaves fell off of it and now the stoners have one less place to smoke pot.

Virtues are not intrinsically good, they are good because they produce the best consequences.

Virtue 2: "Silence". Basically you should only speak when you have something of value to say. This gets kind of confusing, especially if you think that everything is bullshit.

Virtue 3: "Order". Organization and time management is an incredibly important application in ones life. Keep a clean house, an orderly desk, and a time schedule. This depletes anxiety and improves the level of awesome in your life.

Today in the library I found a book about writing comedy. Upon flipping through it I came across this image that I found really funny. Is it ironic that I find humor in a diagram outlining humor itself? The word, ironic, is one I usually stray away from because 90% of the time it is used incorrectly. Personally I think that silliness should be placed somewhere between humor and absurdity (which sounds kind of like nonsense).

Whenever your feeling kind of tired, just do some jumping jacks to get your blood flowing. If that doesn't work you should probably just take a nap.

Speak easy,

When you feel tired, try doing a few squats. They really get the blood rushing.

Well you can thank Michael Jackson for that. Without selling all their songs, covering them would have been copyright infringement.

I think that riding a donkey (no matter which type- miniature or regular) would be far superior to riding a dog. Dog's slobber too much.
