Framing China and The Sound of Awesome

Ok, ok, I realize it has been a solid MONTH since my last post. I do apologize for the absence. Things have been a little crazy with multiple jobs, whirlwind beach trips, and baby peacocks falling from the sky. True story. Anyway, I will ATTEMPT to get back into a more regular pattern of posting. I say attempt might not happen. Anyway...

I wear contacts, which means that I occasionally wear glasses. I took a closer look at my glasses recently and discovered something strange. On the inside of one of the arms (is that a term? probably not), it says "FRAME CHINA" This took me by surprise, and also sent my mind hurtling through the possible explanations. In the end, I narrowed it down to two.

The first is that this is a condensed version of "These frames were made in China." Simple and likely.

The second is that this is a secret message sent to me by the CIA. I'm very much open to this possibility. The problem is that in the world of sabotage I am a rookie. A sabotn00b, if you will. I'm gonna need a couple more signs, secret messenger. Any kind of help as to what mischief I will be getting involved in, and what sort of tricks I have to pull to make it seem like a Chinese job would be greatly appreciated. I will be on the lookout for further instructions.

In other news, I've decided to try a little experiment to kick-start my day. I'm not exactly what you would call a "morning person" Each evening ends with a determination to get up early, and each morning brings furious calculations and debate inside my head about whether or not I can afford to hit the snooze button one more time. It's my secret hope that my arguing skills to myself in the morning will one day transfer to the courtroom.

Anyway, my plan is to set my alarm-tone as an inspirational, uplifting, and all-around awesome sound byte from a movie, tv show, song, or other source. I've decided to go week-by-week to keep some variety. This week's alarm-tone has been James Van Der Beek's epic telling-off of his father in Varsity Blues. And I must say it has worked like a charm. I don't know exactly who's life I don't want, but when my feet hit the floor, I KNOW I am living this day the way I want to. If you live under a rock and don't know the line I'm talking about, check out this AMAZING youtube video.

Now I know what you're thinking: I set the bar too high. Why would I pick the greatest line in cinematic history for week ONE? I'd be lying if I said this worried me a little too. But I had to start it off with a bang, and I am confident I can find other good one's too.

On tap for next week is the Mighty Ducks, when Emilio leads the team into the "Quack...Quack...Quack" cheer, or the slow-quack, if you will. Further suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Leave a comment, shoot me an email, or just tell me. Whatever works!

Again, sorry for the layoff. Next post will be in less than a month. I promise. Also, a big shout out to anyone who finished the VA bar exam today! Congrats!
