I went to Disney World and went to all of the parks besides Animal Kingdom. Animal Kingdom might be the worst of the 4 parks, so I decided to not go there this time to make more time to go to the Magic Kingdom. I returned today.

I like Animal Kingdom. Mainly I love the Dinosaur ride. EPCOT has to be my least favorite. I went a lot as kid (nearly every Friday for dinner at one point in my life), so I'm really over it. I hope you had a good time!

NOOOOO... I love Epcot. When I was in the Disney College Program, I would spend most evenings there. I love the atmosphere.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

I managed to have an excellent weekend until last night, when I was at a party. My friend (I will call him Joe from now, for the excellent reason that it is nothing like his name) went off with two other guys downstairs to play bowling, while I stayed upstairs with some other people. While there, Joe and another guy start drinking wine, and Joe gets completely, totally drunk. We all go outside at the same time for some air, which is when Joe falls on the ground flat on his face and starts vomiting. It turns out Joe has stomach problems- he can't swallow or eat normally, has a far smaller than average stomach, and he drank a lot of wine on an empty stomach. We had to help him out, but it got so bad we had to call 9-1-1.

Long story short, he's in the hospital now, unconscious- he hit his head really hard.

Ouch, that's got to be horrible for Joe and for you--you read stories about teens nearly dying from something related to alcohol (be it drunk driving, alcohol poisoning, or in the case of your friend other complications related to it), but you never think it can ever happen to you or someone you know, know what I mean? May he get well soon.

Great news: he's recovered consciousness and is feeling better.

I've been playing around with photoshop lately. Mostly movie posters for whatever pops into my head. Eh, it passes the time, considering I've been sick for two weeks now.

Pretty nifty PeachFreak!


Today, my computer graphics teacher showed me some pictures of dead bodies and blood splatters (axe hackings, bludgeonings...) that he photographed when he worked as a forensic photographer. He and I get along very well... :)

Very cool, PeachFreak! I'd love to see more movie posters designed like that, instead of the standard big heads of the stars. Get well soon, btw!

Additonally, CluedoKid, that's very cool about your teacher. I took Forensics last semester, but my ginger witch bully of a teacher who was supposedly a forensics expert was terrible and never really had a nifty murder mystery for us. :(

I hope there's some relevent context, because otherwise, that seems a little creepy. "Hey, kid, you like murder mysteries? Me too... let's look at pictures of dead bodies together!"

Michael lol. Some people keep pictures of their grandkids in their wallet, others keep pictures of corpses.

Have to say, it struck me as odd too. But I assumed there was a part I was missing. At least I hope so.
