Don't Pay for a Brand Name, Pay for Quality!

Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient of the popular Viagra product from Pfizer Pharmaceuticals for treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and male impotence.

Viagra has been proven to treat impotence, erectile dysfunction, produce bigger and longer lasting erections, and simply help enhance your overall sex life.

Silagra contains the exact same active ingredients as Viagra, the only difference between the two products is the packaging. Yet, because you are not paying for the brand name (Viagra), you'll end up saving a substantial amount of money.

Enhance your Sex Life, please your partner and yourself, and live a happier and healthier existence! Come see why we are the #1 Viagra alternative in the world. Don't pay extra for nothing more than a brand name, Click here!

Well, I'm sure that many people can use the money off by buying the generic stuff (Jewel-agra?). But personally, I'd have to stick with the regular brand that people trust most! Thanks anyways, though!

Summer is meant for geekiness. For nerdiness. For assaulting your friends' bunkers with 2 full groups of zerglings and 1 group of hydralisks.
Summer is meant to be enjoyed. It is meant to be an ultimate expression of freedom. You have to be able to taste that freedom from your Mithril Goblet of Giant's Strength!
Summer is meant for... umm... let's just say you need to enjoy it. Work and play have never mixed, and never will until communism wins. So, while we sit tight for that, we might as well dump our work and play a round of Quidditch... Eep... You know what? It's no use fighting:

Four words:


Shh. I'm reading.

Ho hum, still waiting a few hours until I get ahold of an Order of the Phoenix. One thing I realized is that Harry Potter will bring up a whole generation of people knowing how to spell "Phoenix" and what a hippogriff (hippogryph) is. I did check out Lake/Oak Park to see the Diagon Alley setup. It kinda sucked (since nothing was special and the street was crowded to a breaking point), except for the fun of people in full costume. If only I had a nice graduation gown to use...
I had to ask my mother, a former English teacher, now editor, what she thought of the madness at "Diagon Alley." I asked her, "Does the literary world revel in this, or is it horrified?" My mom just looked at me and gave a short laugh.

Eaglie has becomed very tied up in working out his mouse-hand on Starcraft and Warcraft 3. Chalk up 2 victories to Eaglie over Maeple, Protoss v. Terran on the Hunters. Otherwise, reading is all Eag's been doing. What, pray tell? None other than...
Three of the books downed in just as many days. If I hadn't played Starcraft and gone to the Indiana Dunes on Fathers' Day, I would've finished the four in 2 days. Harry Potter also gave me a new idea for a short story/spoof. Watch out, Pacold!

Eaglie's Thought of the Day:
If you find a silver dollar on the street, how can a day really be about bad luck?

Playing a nice little online text-based roleplaying game called Legend of the Green Dragon, I had one interesting episode today:

You hit Baby Unicorn for 2 points of damage!
You feel like a real jerk killing something so pretty
You have slain Baby Unicorn!

I also killed several batlings, beggars, curious children, and lost hikers. One hiker KO'd me with a walking stick.

Oh yeah, these happened, too:

You have encountered Cherubically Charming Child which lunges at you with Curious Questions!
Level: 1
Start of round:
Cherubically Charming Child's Hitpoints: 2
YOUR Hitpoints: 3
You execute a power move!!!
You hit Cherubically Charming Child for 3 points of damage!
You think it was the alliteration that did him in.
You have slain Cherubically Charming Child!
You recieve 2 gold!
You recieve 14 total experience!

You have encountered Bar Fly which lunges at you with Alcoholism!
Level: 1
Start of round:
Bar Fly's Hitpoints: 1
YOUR Hitpoints: 4
You hit Bar Fly for 1 points of damage!
Good thing you got him before cirrhosis did!
You have slain Bar Fly!
You recieve 33 gold!
You recieve 14 total experience!

All for thee today.

In the Deity Wars of Sullon Zek, little Beaglie Puppydogg, Eaglie's little brother, took notes on bad guys' reactions to his fighting prowess:

We'll see how many of my readers understand that.

I am an Amethyst Dragon!

Hey, I took the http://dragonhame.com online Inner Dragon quiz and found out I am a Amethyst Dragon on the inside.

In the war between good and evil, a Amethyst Dragon tends to walk the fine line of Neutrality....
When it comes to the powers of Chaos vs. those of Law and Order, your inner dragon walks a fine line between Law and Chaos....
As far as magical tendancies, Magical spells come as natural to the Amethyst Dragon as breathe from it's body....
During combat situations, whether by spells or by claw, your inner dragon will do whatever it takes to get the job done....
The Amethyst Dragon makes its home in the deep caverns of the earth, often in mountainous regions. They spend much time in hibernation as one of their favorite things to do is to sleep.'
Formed from translucent amethyst, it is an awe inspiring sight to see one in it's true form. Light passes through the dragon's body creating a deep purple glow. It's scales will magnify the light rays into bright lavender beams to highlight this effect.'
Amethyst dragons spend most of their time homebound but do occasionally feel the need to take a sojourn to a far destination. These dragons love books and will often pick their destination from one of the many stories and histories they may have read. Amethyst dragons are very solitary in nature, but do keep a distant watch on the world around them. They tend to be highly intelligent, and often amuse themselves in human form by building gadgets and toys. Amethyst dragons are very learned creatures.
This Dragons favorite elements are: Amethyst, Deep Places, and Magic


Wow, that was a long, boring entry.

Today, June 6th, 2003, a date which will live in infamy, the junior class of St. Ignatius was suddenly and deliberately released by administrative and educational forces of St. Ignatius College Prep.

Yes, yes. We're GODDAMNED SENIORS! To quote Edwards: "I'M A FUCKING SENIOR!!! HOW'D THAT HAPPEN?!" Better yet, Miramontes' reaction: "I PASSED MY SPANISH EXAM! I'M GONNA BE A SENIOR!!!" Amid high fives, laughter, shouting to strangers on the Eisenhower, and leaping into Miramontes' open arms, I realized that we were seniors.

We have nothing to fear but a bunch of rowdy seniors. Ourselves.

Special Note: For those who gave their lives 59 years ago today at Gold, Sword, Juno, Omaha, and Utah... for the British, the French, the Canadians, the Americans, thank you.

Spring is here, ah spring is here
Life is skittles,
Life is beer
I think the loveliest time of the year is the spring,
I do, don't you? 'course you do
But there's one thing that makes spring complete for me,
And makes a evr'y Sunday a treat for me.

all the world seems in tune
On a spring afternoon,
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park
Ev'ry Sunday you'll see
My sweetheart and me
As we poison the pigeons in the park.

When they see us coimg the birdies all try an' hide,
But they still go for peanuts when coated with cyanide
The sun's shing bright,
Ev'ry thing seems all right
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park.

We've gained notoriety
And caused much anxiety
In the Audubon Society
With our games
They call it impiety
And lack or propriety
And quite a variety
Of unpleasent names

But it's not against any religion
To want to dispose of a pigeon!

so if Sunday your free
Why don't you come with me
And we'll poison the pigeons in the park
And maybe we'll do
In a squirrel or two
While we're poisoning the pigeons in the park

We'll murder them all amid laughter and merriement
Except for the few we take home to experiment
My pulse will be quicknin'
With each drop of strick'nine
We give to a pigeon
It just takes a smigdeon!
To poison a pigeon in the park.

I promise to bring Eaglie back soon. Let's just say he went on vacation while Andy went into "Finals" mode. Read lyrics of "Poisoning the Pigeons in the Park" by Tom Lehrer while you wait.

Dear Andy,

The Biomic Bunny was awesome. The best thing about the book was the pctures. Thank you so much for the book. It was awesome I will read it to my mom and dad. I know they will love the book also.

Your friend,

OMG. I didn't expect such a cool message so soon about my childrens' book, The Biomic Bunny. Scared me for a moment when it said "Jordan" (My God, does Jordan write in cursive?!), but then I guessed by the drawing and the content of the letter that it was not written by Ignatian Jordan, but a little boy named Jordan.
Jordan, I'm framing that letter of yours for my room. It's such a cool drawing of the Biomic Bunny! Thank you!

Here's my original monologue for Comparative Gov., my Tonight Show with Jay Leno spoof. Just imagine this with a gangly white teen with glasses (Andy) speaking with a high-pitched voice and shaking his head erratically while a black teen with glasses (Edwards) laughs over on the side and cracks a few jokes of his own:

"Well, it’s the 300th anniversary of St. Petersburg! Wow, 300 years? 300 years of dictatorship, poor economic conditions, and exploitation of the masses? Boy, that’s gotta make those wealthy elites lie awake at night right next to their hidden vaults!

Have you heard about these oligarchs? They control most of the Russian economy. They make millions and billions of dollars every year off of poor oppressed workers and citizens. [pause] Thank God that doesn’t happen in the US!

In China, there’s still the SARS virus roaming. President Hu Jintao even allowed himself to be checked for the virus before he left the country. Well, actually, they just gave President Hu a fortune cookie. It said: “You are in good health.”

Here’s something of note: Tony Blair stated a few day ago that the European Union should not be a “federal superstate.” Most European countries “regard it as a union of nations.” Meanwhile, France and Germany issued a joint statement that they regard Tony Blair as a “prissy American lackey.” Well, that’s what they would have said if they weren’t so busy trying to build a federal superstate.

Now, the G8 summit is opening, held in Evian, France. You know, the place with all the water factories? Well, there’s been riots over the summit. Rioters are proclaiming that the summit needs to do something about the state of the rest of the world. Damned protestors, always fighting for equality. Why can’t they stay at home and shout at the TV like the rest of us?"

My guest was Saddam Hussein, played timelessly by Alex Zavala in his Groucho moustache. Thank you so much, Chris and Alex! It was a success!

Graduation is in the air! Pomp and Circumstance is ringing in my ear! Family members get together and bicker about what restaurant to take the graduate to! God, it's glorious!

Go look at what wild squirrels like to do in their free time. I've got more graduation stuff to go to.
