KrAzY Glue

krazy glueWhile working on a museum exhibit in first and and second periods at school (who needs Calculus and Physics anyways?) I found a tiny, uncapped tube of Krazy Glue. I pocketed it. I continued to fiddle around with my project and “provide input” and stuff like that to the other projects.

So in the last class of the day, I remembered that I had krazy glue in my pocket.  I pulled it out, and that’s when I realized that it didn’t have a lid on it.  I plunged my hand into my pocket to see if it was still functional or completely ruined by the glue. It wasn’t. There was only a stiff bit at the bottom with some pocket lint in it.

Then, I glued a quarter to the floor.  It was classic. Several people tried to pick it up and eventually one girl decided it was some kind of challenge and pulled out a screwdriver. She hacked and scraped at it for a bit, rather unsuccessfully.  The quarter and the floor around it was scratched up, but the quarter was still firmly part of the floor. She asked me what I had done to it.  I told her I had stomped on it really hard and she believed me.  Eventually the teacher wanted me to get it up, so I used an X-Acto knife to burrow under the edge of it and then pried it off the linoleum with a screwdriver.  It came up with the back of it covered in floor.

Moutain Top Youth Camp

23 04 2008

Well it looks like I’m going to be STAFFING at MTYC this summer. And that just completely awesome.

A good chance for me to get off my butt and do something.  I don’t know all the details yet, I just wanted to write down something before I actually found out more about it.  I’ve attended MTYC as a camper every summer for the past… six or seven years I guess, and last year I was a Junior Counsellor  for  the Junior Boys week.  That was a lot of fun, and I look forward to spending a whole summer up there.





KFC is Creepy.

Especially when it’s combined with a Pizza Hut.

I went to a Youth Rally in Conway, South Carolina this weekend. Three other youth and two youth leaders went with me.  It was a lot of fun and I got to see a lot of people that I enjoy being around but don’t usually get to. The messages were good, given by one of my personal heroes, Tony Myers.  John Glock was scheduled to give them, but a few days prior to the rally, his mother became ill.  And priorities are priorities.

Anywho, we stopped at a KFC/Pizza Hut on the way back to grab some food.  I had been listening to Andrew Bird in the van.  Now, I never really thought that Andrew Bird was very popular, or that very many people have even heard of him.  To my surprise, the very song that I had just listened to was playing in the restaurant.  It was pretty weird.  The chicken was as greasy as ever, and the biscuit tasted like plastic butter.  Gotta love fast food.
