Blogs, Blogs, Everwhere!

Hi, just a quick post today. I felt that I should tell you about a new blog, formed about three hours after my last post, which was all about new blogs being formed. It started the normal way: a friend logged on, I asked her to check out Boyd's World, she asked how to make a blog, blah blah blah. I'll have a link down on my toolbar, under "Saraha's Blog". So far, it's been more of an obsession for Twilight, but I can foresee it becoming something great.
This new blog thing is going out of control. I feel like I've started something that's accelerating to the point of ridiculous. Now, I'm not complaining at all, because it means the odds of there being a new post every time I log on dramatically better.
Well, like I said earlier, this is going to be a short post. It was great chatting with you, everyone.

Blogs Aplenty!

Wow, yet another blog has been formed. Alix decided the time was right to form a blog, and proceeded to do so. It is, like everyone else's, way better than mine. I'm not too concerned about this, because I'm just glad to have created a wave. Since the formation of my blog, at least three others have been formed because of it. I know not too many people read Boyd's World, but apparently those who do are so inspired they create their own. It's a domino effect, too. They'll tell their exclusive friends, who will read them, possibly form their own blogs, tell people about it, etc, etc. They will also all read about Boyd's World on their friend's blog, check it out, be interested, and start to follow it. Soon it will be the blog with the most followers, because it's the top of the pyramid.

Yes, that's right. I openly admit that I formed a pyramid scam. But is it really that horrible? It has given three people reason to write everyday already, and perhaps someday more. Is causing other people to write more in this world where no one really needs to such a bad thing? It's like the pass it forward concept, except I probably won't get stabbed. I mean, I hope not.

And, Blogger must be pretty happy as well. I've gotten three new people to use the site, and I plan on getting more. I mean, everyone wins! Well, except for the last person. I'm going to get going now, because I don't want to make this post too rambling. Bye!

Late One Thanksgiving Night

Hi, and happy Thanksgiving. I had a good one, although from some whiny blog posts maybe not all did. I'm certain that I haven't been posting enough, because Ashley managed to make two consecutive posts before I made another. She normal posts about once a week, and the thought that I didn't post at all in between two of her posts just shows poor maintenance. Sure, we can all remember those dark ages of one post every two weeks, and of course I do obsessively-compulsively post, but still! I am proud of the fact that I post the most of everyone.
All ranting aside, there's no one on because of the fact it's a national holiday. Well, actually, it's probably not that, because by checking time stamps on E-mails and blog posts I can tell that at least two people have been on today, and possibly more. I'm not desperate for human contact, but I'm getting quite bored. I've been watching The Incredibles on TV, and I am glad it's on. As far as Pixar films go, it's not half bad. Really, to tell the truth, I can't think of one of their films I didn't like.
Yay, someones online! I think I should take this as an excuse to stop the post, but quite honestly, I've been disappointed with the length of my recent blog posts. They've been lacking a little bit, and that is disturbing. However, it's getting harder to concentrate on writing this post, so I believe I must. Well, I'll see you soon, my wonderful readers.

This Is A Wednesday Post

Happy Wednesday! Sorry about not posting yesterday. I went online to possibly post, but Ashley was on, and soon two others were as well. I had a hard enough time keeping up all of the conversations, without throwing a blog post in there as well. Sometimes one's mind is too easily distracted.
I'm still not sure what I'm planning on writing about today, although the browser is obviously open and I'm writing. I usually have some idea as to what I plan on writing about before hand, but not today. Perhaps, when in this scenario in the future, I shouldn't post. In this month alone I've posted over 20 times, although this blog itself only has about 80 posts over it's entirety. I've come across some inspiration lately, apparently, because the amount of posts have shot up since the January of last year. Soon Boyd's World will be celebrating it's one year anniversary, and I think I might throw a party. Don't tell it, though, it's a surprise. Not a real party, mind you, one on this here confounded Internet thing.
Well, I'm gonna get going, because I still have to check out the Dilbert blog this morning, as well as fiddle with some settings on here. See ya, and have a great Thanksgiving.

General Insights Into Madness

Good morning, at least where I am. By the time anyone reads this, it will be a good afternoon, but I like to be true to myself. If you say that's what your doing, you can get away with incredibly stupid things, such as disobeying the direction of time. I personally use it as an excuse for nearly everything, and it's never betrayed me. Except for that one time it did. Okay, it appears that I have no point here, so I think I'll just walk away for a minute...and we're back.

I discovered recently the enormous multitude of cool wallpapers that exist here online. I don't really trust screen savers from the Internet yet, because how can you trust anything that would be willing to spam your computer continually? Whenever I log onto the Dilbert homepage, a pop up about screen savers comes up, and minimizes itself so it can stay on your computer a little longer. The very first time I visited the new, Beta homepage, Internet Explorer asked me if I wanted to allow pop ups from the site, and because I trusted Dilbert, I foolishly did. Now whenever I go on, I feel the rage at Screen Savers For Windows slowly bubble up. I'm afraid soon I'm going to get so annoyed I'll call them up and go all crazy on the automated voice system. That's not healthy, for me or their answering machines.

Now, when I type this, it may sound like I'm in a very annoyed looking and acting state, but in reality, I'm sitting completely expressionless in front of the computer, with The Clash being pumped into my ears at incredibly loud volumes. It's a good way to start out the day, and I wouldn't sacrifice my calmness just to get annoyed at a pop up window. Sure, it irritates me way down inside, but you wouldn't be able to tell. I take the story as it may have been, and I use my artist license to spice it up a bit. If you don't like that, feel free to complain. If you do, however, I won't get annoyed, although I will act it on the next post.

I wonder what the ideal post length is? I usually try to make them long, but not to the point of pointlessness. I don't like to make them short, because I know that when I compulsively check all the blogs I read for new posts 100 times a day, on the rare occasion there is a new post I like it to be as long as possible so I can be distracted from the emptiness of the Internet for just a little bit more time. I'm definitely kidding, but the point does still remain. Or maybe not, we'll never really know.

I think I'm gonna get going, because I have to look something up on Wikipedia. Well, I'll be seeing you around.

Workin' For A Livin'

Hello readers. The past two days I've worked to construct a giant, three story rabbit pen for my bunny. I just got it ready for him to play in, and soon he will be able to move in permanently. It is built out of sections of those cube structures, held together by zip-ties. It's got two levels, and I'm going to put astro-turf style stuff on the floors. It's flippin' humongous, and I'm glad it's done, because the zip-ties are killing my fingers.
The reason for my lack of posts is due to the fact that yesterday I got Family Guy on DVD. I know some people think it's uncultured and crude, but I must disagree. It does push the envelope, but people need a little rebellion occasionally. People probably said the same about other ground-breaking elements of cultural controversy that now are just a part of society. When that darned rock 'n' roll music started, I imagine a lot of people hated it. Now it is a necessity to how some think and feel. Sure, some old people will always hate it, but that's why they have TV Land and other methods for staying inside of their little time proof bubbles. OK, I'm kidding in a controversial manner, so perhaps Boyd's World will someday be culture defining. Maybe not culture defining, but perhaps a good amusement for those in need of amusing.
IMing is really cool, isn't it? I'm chatting with Stephen right now. By the way, he has a blog now. It's called Livin' The Life, and it's yet another fighter in the rebellion against boring blogs. Here's a link:
It's a pretty great site.
Well, I think I'm gonna get going now. I'm playing tic-tac-toe with Stephen, and I have to fully concentrate in order to win, because I really suck at it. Wish me luck!

Multitasking

I've discovered the extent of my abilities to multitask recently. I'm able to have music playing in the background (The Wall), the T.V. on (Scrubs), YouTube playing in one ear, and to chat with a friend. Currently, I'm just watching to T.V., listening to music, and typing this psot, but I'm considering getting up and grabbing headphones so I can throw YouTube into the mix.
I think this is going to be a short post. Yes, yes it shall.

Lot's 'O' Chatter

I finally got my top ten favourite albums sorted out. Now, this list is subject to change. In fact, I just now thought of one that is more deserving to be on there than another. It really seemed like a more daunting task in my head than it actually turned out to be. Quite honestly, it took about five minutes, and that was just because I had to put who performed each one and what ranking they got. I was originally just going to throw them up there in any order, because I really didn't think I could choose, but then I realized that that could be confusing. I also put who made each one on there as an afterthought, because I realized some of you may not have heard of some of them.
Wow, I really seem to be having a hard time typing this morning. I'm using the school computer, which I can normally type way faster on than my laptop, but today my fingers just don't want to hit the right keys. I'm not one of those people whose fingers just fly across the keyboard, but I am one of the fastest typers in my class. For a while, I tried using a self-instruction program, but because there was no real motivation to do all the lessons and follow directions, I soon lost interest. I did learn to use both hands and multiple fingers when typing, which is probably the cause for my speed.
well, it's only 7:04, and the bell won't be ringing for 16 minutes, but I seem ready to end this post. Now that I do my homework at home instead of at school every morning, I've been able to spend way more time on the computer. Plus, with my incredibly persistent cold, I've been just well enough to goof around online for hours. It's starting to get a little boring on here. People don't always post every day like I do, which leads to some boredom on other people's part. I've been looking for new sites to check out, and more channels on YouTube to watch. The YouTube thing is going well, thanks to some friends who have had high speed longer than I, but I've only found one new site. It's www.newgrounds.com, and it's just full of cool videos. They're way smoother than YouTube video's and a lot higher quality. The site was shown to me by Stephen, a Boyd's World pioneer who, although he has an account, for some reason hasn't signed up as a follower. He asked me to mention his name in the post, so I did in all my brutal scorn. OK, I'm kidding (kind of). The video he told me about was called Animator vs. Animation, and was incredibly cool. I could have sworn it was a real screen the whole time. I'd post a link, but to do that I'll have to check the history on my laptop.
Well, I think I'm gonna get going, so see you next time on Boyd's World.

Toolbars

I'm sure all of you have wondered in the past, "Drew, what are you're favourite bands?" Well, here are your answers. On the toolbar, located to the left, there is a list of all the bands and individuals I enjoy listening to. It's not in any particular order, though I did sort the bands a little in order of liking. That's not an easy thing for me to do, however, since my favourites' list changes throughout the day. If I'm sad, I might favor The Smiths. If I'm feeling inspired, I'll listen to R.E.M. It changes every time something, no matter how insignificant, is said to me.
Also, soon I would like to post a list of my ten favorite albums. I've thought for hours on this subject, and I think I'm almost to the point where I can definitively choose. Plus, I can edit the list whenever I want. Blogger may have it's bad point's, but it's great for indecisive types like myself.
I think my toolbar is getting a little crowded, but I can't find a thing that isn't necessary. The whole thing is a composition 0f stuff I feel you need to see, hear, or think about. It may look cluttered, but almost all of it is essential.
Well, although the bell won't ring for a good 10 minutes, I think I'm going to end this post a little early. I'm going to fiddle with the toolbar, and then look at some of the blogs of note. although I scorn them, I always check to see if the really are note-worthy. Well, keep your fingers crossed, and maybe someday every body's favourite blog will grace the list of notable blogs.

Cross The T's And Dot The I's

As I was checking all of the comments on Boyd's World, I noticed that November, even though it isn't over yet, has the most posts of all the months since I started this thing in February. It's crazy that this blog has only been around that long. It seems as though it could have been created when I first started Jr. High, as far as I'm concerned.
I can still remember designing this blog: I was using my mom's computer, while watching a weird movie on a music video network. I hadn't asked my mom if I could make a blog yet, and I was hoping she wouldn't notice (she did). I had no idea what to write about, so I decided to write about whatever popped into my head. I seem to have kept that tradition up, at least. I recall not wanting to use proper punctuation, misspelling words and using FANBOYS to the point of idiocrasy. I continued this for a few weeks, until I took a good look at other peoples' blogs and realized that none of them were doing that. I quickly readjusted my "voice" on here, and now people complain about how proper my blog seems.
I find complaints about using a big vocabulary frustrating. Yes, I could revert back to a fifth-grade vocabulary, and be like the World News, but why? All good authors use thesauri to write, and I would like to be a good author. Now, of course I understand why one would want to avoid using humongous words in each sentence, to avoid feeling like you're playing buzzword bingo, but that shouldn't be a restraint on my overall writing.
I wish I knew how to close each post like Scott Adams does, but It's hard to when you write as erratically as I. I'm just going to end my post like usual, with a "peace out", or "see ya". Yes, that's definitely the best course of action. Peace out!

Five Tangents, Five Paragraphs

For the third time in a row, I find myself sitting in a chair, wandering around the Internet and looking at some friends' blogs online and trying to decide whether or not to waste your time with yet another post. Actually, since they both posted links my blog on their blogs, I feel an obligation to post links to theirs.
Katie Narris's blog:
Maddi_2013's blog:
Although I'm definitely not a fan of the blog provider (Yahoo's Shine!), the blogs themselves certainly aren't suffering. they may not believe so, but the authors are incredibly talented and, in my opinion, should switch over to Blogger. (If that little ad won't get me a spot on the Blogs Of Notice list, I don't know what will.)
In other news, I recently started reading Twilight. By recently, of course, I mean about five hours ago. It's such a good book, I'm already half way through and there are no signs of stopping. I wasn't sure if I would like it, due to the fact it's supposed to have a lot of romance thrown in, but for some odd reason, it's flippin' awesome. I hope the movie isn't so horrible it ruins the book, like some movies I've seen.
Has anyone else ever watched a mini-series on SciFi? If you haven't already been damaged by one, I recommend you steer clear. They are horrible, drama contests that are conducted by crappy actors and weird directors. Also, they're usually about six hours long, which can make it impossibly hard to watch one start to finish. When I saw The Shining, I realized about halfway through that I could have just read the book over again.
Wow, I just realized that if you make the text block split into smaller paragraphs, it makes you look more academic and it makes the post look longer. If I use that to my advantage, soon publishing companies will be waiting outside my front door and ivory-league colleges will be actively stalking my principal. It might stink for him and I at first, but soon I'll be rolling in riches and I'll never have to go to class again. I'm not 100% how it will work out in my principal's favor, but I'm sure we can cross that bridge when we get to it.
Look, I just got all academic again! This post is actually turning out to be better that expected, which is quite a relief. That's the thing about my posts: I usually have no clue where they will end up once I'm done with them. Look, this post has already gone off on five different tangents, when I figured it would be short and somewhat pointless. Unfortunately for all of you, all good things must come to an end, and I believe this post is no different. I'm sorry, but now you'll have something to look forward to next time. Peace out, man.

I'm...So...Tired...

So, how's it going everyone? I'm posting because everyone else has gone and I wish to attempt to retain some human contact. For me, that means writing a blog post. Don't be dissuaded by that, just pretend it's being written for less selfish reasons.

Wow, I'm so tired I can't even think straight. Okay, that's an exaggeration, but I am somewhat tired. I'm also suffering from a whopper of a cold, so I'm a bit preoccupied. I really should be capable of handling copious amounts of sneezing and coughing since I've had pretty bad allergies my whole life. However, I somehow can't deal with the accompanying headaches and fever. I've been feeling sluggish the past two days, and I haven't really been able to sit around all day like I would like to. Yesterday I had more time to act ill than today, but today I had to paint my bathroom. The difficulty of the task was multiplied by the fact that the bathroom is the size of a very small walk-in closet. I could barely fit the ladder in there to reach the high spots. I walked out of that bathroom five hours later with paint in my hair and my spirit totally crushed. I spent that whole time getting the first coat down, with the knowledge that I would have to do the exact same thing again tomorrow.

I'm listening to songs I've already heard a million times before, and I'm growing increasingly bored. I think I should be getting going, because now I really can't think straight. How should I end this post? I think I'll go with the Sopranos ending, where I just stop in mid-sentence. Yes, I think that would be the-

Read Me, Masses!

So, how's everyone doing? I hope this will be one of the first posts to be read by the masses, because I sent an E-mail to everyone in my contacts and then asked them all to forward it. I hope at least half of them do. Even if half of the people sent it forward it, and half of everyone who is forwarded it does the same, and so on,and so on, soon thousands will know about it. The internet is one of the fastest communication tools on Earth, and I might just want to use that to my advantage. If you were forwarded this, please post a comment. It will brighten up a mad author's day, and although he won't need it, it will be a super-duper pick-me-up.
Wow! I just used five hyphens in one sentence!
I think that's a good note to end on.

Let's See How Long A Post Can Get!

Once again, people, I feel the need to express my great distaste for crappy computers. Now I'm on my Grandma's office computer, which is an XP. It has dial-up, which is probably the cause for all of my problems. See, I wish to IM Alix, and although it will confirm that she's online, it won't let me IM. Now, until Sunday I had Dial-up at home, so I know that can't be the only problem. The computer, in theory, should work great, because all XP's I've ever used outside of their house work great, with the exception of this morning. For some odd reason, my Grandparents property is like a Bermuda Triangle for computers. Every single computer that goes into their house and store seems to start acting up and malfunctioning for no apparent reason. The only exception to that is my mom's laptop, which probably only survived because it was brand-spankin' new. They only buy refurbished computers, which probably contributes to the effect.

In other news, does anyone who reads this also read MAD? If you do, be sure to look up the monkey issue. I got a letter published in there, as well as a picture of me standing in fear under a giant Alfred E. Neuman statue. I'm still reaping the benefits of that, because I'm still receiving free issues in the mail. It's a sweet deal except for the fact that they get shipped to my Grandparents' house instead of mine. They aren't exactly what you could call fans of MAD, so I often find recent issues hidden underneath stacks of paper or in totally weird places, like on the shelves in their store or on top of the humongous refrigerator.

I've been standing up for the past 4 and a half hours, I had crappy pizza for dinner, and I can't IM Alix, but since I'm on here and posting I'm still really happy. Of course, if I could write to Alix I'd be happier, but since I can't I'll take the good with the bad.

I keep thinking I'm going to end the blog post, but I know that if I do there will be nothing else to do, online or otherwise, so I think this will be the wonder post. It will redefine what I think of as a long post. What else do I have to talk about? I'm not sure yet. Let's just sit back and chill for second, and try to massage some warmth into my fingers.

Waiting...

Actually, I don't think I'll write anymore. I've got to go, because my grandparents store is about to close. Oh, and if this says it was posted tomorrow morning, ignore that, because it was written tonight.

Stupid Computer!

Wow, can computers be incredibly annoying or what? The computer I'm using is a somewhat nice computer, but it seems to be having an emotional breakdown. The symptoms are vague, and I know that if I get the technology director involved it will stop acting up right before he looks at it.
When I start up the computer,a page for a screen-size clock appears. It's supposed to, but I don't want to use it, so I close it. That's about the point where craziness sets in. I then click the link to the network storage files so I can put some music on the computer. The whole time I'm negotiating that maze, I have to use the right click for some odd reason. When I pull up the music, inevitably a tab will appear at the bottom of the screen that has a ridiculously huge number and "Windows Explorer" written on it. When you right click it, a list that has the same program on it over and over appears. If you click on that, the program starts running. You have to close each file individually.
By this point, I'm incredibly frustrated, and I'd like to get on the Internet. When I hit start, however, I discover if my pointer even touches a program, it starts running. When I say it starts running, I mean 20 windows of the same thing opens. If I touch Shut Down, it closes all windows and shuts down. After turning the stupid thing back on (and cursing at it), I get music playing again and go to Settings to try to fix the mouse. When I try to open the Mouse window, however, 20 little tiny windows that are non-responsive pop up. I'm totally sick of taking the computer's crap by this point, so I hit CTRL+ALT+Delete and go to the task list to shut down everything.
Once I did that, everything was just peachy. Now I'm sitting here, writing about my horrible experience. I'd like to tell myself it's not going to happen again, but that doesn't level with the fact that this is the third time this has happened. I can't be driven to the point of shouting at the computer again, because this time a teacher heard me. Next time, maybe it will be a less responsive and more evil teacher. I can't get a detention, because that would end my perfect record, and I would lose my presidency.
And there's the bell. I'm running late, so I won't be able to say, "See ya," like normal.

To The Phones!

Well, I think I have good reason for wanting to post, and here's why: I think I may have lost some of that motivation I had about posting for a while there. Sure, I still post daily, but I think it may have temporarily lost it's heart. I say temporarily, because I plan on bringing back the heart. How will I? I've got ideas. I'm thinking of a way to advertise this blog, but it's not totally formulated yet. I'm thinking massive fundraisers, prime-time ads, maybe even a bribe or two to the bigwigs in the top of the companies that could get this thing somewhere. Actually, that takes money, so maybe I'll just keep telling people I don't even like about my blog. "Please, would you visit this site, and leave a comment so the author doesn't feel as lonely when he wanders the Internet late at night." It's starting to get sad.
Oh, guess what? I just got seasons 7 and 4 of Scrubs. Season 7 is a really short season, because of the stupid writer's strike. I certainly kept writing during it (probably because I don't get paid). I understand there were issues going on, but that doesn't relate to the fact that I didn't get to watch my favourite shows.
As an interesting tidbit, were you aware that spell checks don't recognise the British spelling of "favourite"? It recognizes "favorite", but once you throw in that "u" for good effect, it rejects it like a defective ATM rejects a password. I know, everyone hates a bad metaphor, as I've learned from reading Dilbert, but I've got to make due.
As I'm sitting here, I'm getting distracted by Scrubs and wondering whether or not to stop posting as to devote my whole attention. I'm guessing the best option would be to finish the post and watch, because otherwise my posting might suffer. I know you all wouldn't want that to occur.

Popcorn's Yummy

Mmmmm. popcorn is so tasty. I just popped up a nice big bowl of it, so now I'm going to sit down, munch on it, and chill on the Internet. I decided the best way to go about this would be to first write a blog post, then IM and watch Charlie The Unicorn. Man, that video's hilarious!
Well, looks like the posting part is done. See ya, I suppose.

Blogger In All Of It's Amazingness

Hey, it's me again. You know, I'm really not a fan of the way some parts of Blogger are set up. The Blogger Buzz section, for example. It hasn't been updated for a week, and probably won't be for a while. Also, the blogs of note seem a bit fishy. I don't think necessarily they should be the best blogs on the site, but the most well-liked. teen blogs, whose subject I just can't seem to get away from, aren't always well set up, but that doesn't mean they aren't the most sincere. According to Wikipedia, the most common type of blog is the personal blog, written by someone who is aware no one will read it, and is still quite proud. I may not have the best set up blog in the world, but I still love it. I created this blog, and it's setup is therefore irrelevant. I think they should look for blogs with fewer followers instead of more. The small, unknown blogs are the ones that need to be better advertised, not the ones that already have 200 followers.
I'm not sure if that's an unbiased opinion, however, so lets try and stray away from that subject. I try to write this blog not unbiased, but with a little of my own personal opinion thrown in for flavor. If it was completely unbiased, it would be like a newspaper, and it would lack the teenage angst I wish to instill in readers. That said, sometimes a bias will get in the way of logic and make you appear unintelligent. To quote a wise man, "Better is he who is silent and thought to be a fool than he who opens his mouth and removes all doubt." Okay, really my grandpa says that, but that doesn't make it any less wise.
I've removed a lot of the gadgets that were on this page, because they seemed to clutter up the page. Plus, they sometimes had ads at the bottom, and that's not what I'm about. I would rather not have ads on my page if I don't have to. Sure, I'm aware some things require an ad to fund them, but that doesn't mean I want my page covered in ads. It distracts one from the blog posts, and that's what this blog is all about. I don't want you to play around with the widgets the entire time you're on Boyd's World, because that's not what it's here for. I don't just write these posts as a decorative element, I write them to be read.
Well, I'm going to goof around with the settings and see if I can make my blog any more "notable". Wish me luck!

Food


Hi, and thanks for tuning in again. I've got a subject in mind, so maybe this post will perhaps be slightly less rambling than my usual posts.

I think I might know why a lot of America is overweight. American food, or at least most of it, doesn't satisfy people. You aren't satisfied, so you eat more. You search for something in the food that's just not there. I know this because I've tasted other food, and I've felt the satisfaction that comes with real food. Other countries have figured out how food is supposed to be made, and we haven't.

Now, I'm not saying I don't like the mass produced food we're so commonly provided. McDonald's is delicious, as are the crappy school lunches they give us. The thing is, however, it doesn't provide what we want or need.

All you need to do is search out food made by the natives of the country or region, and BAM!, you've got what is wanted. Chicago style pizza only satisfies one if it's made by true Chicago people. Pad Thai is made the best by, obviously, the Thai. It's the same.

Also, food made by non-corporate restaurants is usually better in the capacities I've mentioned. If it's made by a small, locally owned cafe, it will be totally awesome. If it's made by a cafe that could be found on any corner in the world, it will taste good, but it won't really be good. It's the same all over.

I'm brought to this topic because today was an especially delicious day. For breakfast, I had veggie sliders with cucumbers and goat cheese. It sounds totally nasty, but it was food nirvana. Where did I find it? A small, non-franchise coffee shop-like place. For dinner (I didn't have any lunch), I had Chicago style pizza. It wasn't from Chicago, but the chefs most certainly were. I ate my fill, and was totally satisfied.

Now, this isn't a diet plan, so don't think it is. It isn't exactly the best plan. since I did gorge myself on what I ate. It didn't work for me, so it probably won't for you. Really, I just wanted to talk about the delicious food I ate today. However, the underlying principle remains, so just pretend all of my inane chatter about food made more sense than I fear it did.

See you tomorrow, or maybe Monday. Bye!

Let's Watch Some T.V.

Hey everyone, how's it going? I know I said I would post this morning, but I didn't. Do I care? Nope. I can still remember the days of one post a week. If you can't live that long without a posting, then you really need to find something else to do with your life. I really don't have much to talk about, so I guess I'll tell you what's going on. I'm watching The Kids In The Hall, a Canadian show from the Nineties. It basically takes ordinary situations and turns them around to seem surreal to all the straight men and forces them to cope. It's a bit risque, but it's totally hilarious. Actually, I am rather more interested in watching it than posting, so this is going to be a short post today. Well, see you later.

Twelve People

Let me let you see exactly what my environment is as I post in the mornings. I'm sitting in a corner, working on a refurbished 98 that was converted to an XP, with Skull candy headphones in my ears that are hooked up to a crappy imitation Ipod. The keyboard has to sit on my lap, because there is no room on the desk the monolith 98 sits on. I'm in a zen state, aware of the fact in a few minutes I'll have to deal with humanity. The Dead Milkmen are playing, and it's a pretty good song. My leg has gone numb from lack of circulation due to the keyboard.
I give you this insight into my writing so you can understand exactly what the conditions around me are as I write to you dear readers. It's something interesting to do, and I haven't posted about it before so it's at least a change in scenery.
Yesterday I realized that to you readers, it must seem as though I have no friends in this world other than Ashley and Alix. I realized this because one of my best friends asked me why I never wrote about her on here. I could have explained it was because she never posted a comment, but instead I told her it was because I wasn't sure if she would be okay with it. Now I feel an obligation to mention all of my friends. There's Keeley, who is the one who brought this predicament to my attention, as well as Kyle, who's a great friend to have. There's Alexis, who would be upset if I didn't mention her. There's my slow-witted band members (and ex-band members), who hopefully understand all of my ridicule is in good nature. There's Leah, whom I mention because she's more likely to read this than others, plus because we went out last year and it would be cruel not to mention her. There's the Eisenhart's, who moved to Indiana last year but are still worthy of mentioning. There's Tessa, trumpet player much more skilled than I. Then of course, we have Ashley, who just started hanging out with me this year, And last, but most certainly not least, Alix. She was the first person to ever read my blog, so she deserves special mention. oh, I suppose if pioneers are getting special mention, Stephen should also be mentioned.
If I failed to mention you, don't feel left out. I just mentioned those who are most likely to read this. It's a good thing to be mentioned on this list, because it could mean special Boyd's World mention in the future. When this blog is world-famous, there might be some mention as to being original readers. Only a few people on that list have never been here, and I hope to change that in the near future. If you are reading this, and have been a dedicated reader, lack of mention is you're own fault. If you posted comments, I would know you read it, but as it is it's impossible to tell.
All of that said, see you next time, which will be either tonight or tomorrow morning.

Blogging In School

Well, Obama won. I'm not really surprised. I didn't log on to talk about that the whole time, however. I know that yesterday I had some great ideas for topics today, so I'm hoping they'll all float to the surface as I'm typing. I wasn't sure if I would even be able to post this morning, because of the inordinate amount of homework I have. Then I found out my book bag, with all of my homework in it, went missing. Now I'm free to type as much as I want, the only price being three missing assignments.
You know what would be cool? If I could use this blog for a grade in Language Arts. it's not inappropriate, and it's better written than most of my papers. Apparently, the teachers' in service yesterday mentioned something along the lines of free expression through a chosen medium, so I think the teacher will be more acceptable to my idea than previous. I'm also trying to become a journalist for the school newspaper, which is a hard task. I've got the disadvantage that the teacher is my mom, and that it's not an extra-curricular class. In my defense, last year they asked me to draw a comic strip for the paper, so I know it's okay to be in it even if your not in the class. Unfortunately, my mom has alienated her classes to me by mocking me during class and making me seem like an easily pushed around student. Her class is mostly 7th grade girls, so I try to be as forgiving as possible, but it's starting to bother me. They don't fear me like they fear the rest of my class. Fear is an important thing for them to feel, because I'm older and deserve the respect.
You know what? I don't think I'm going to do that project. The person who dissuaded me should know who they are. Thanks a lot.
well, see you tomorrow!

A Post of Meaningless Rambling

Hey everyone, how's it going? I'm still sitting in my living room, watching Scrubs. Oh, has anyone else noticed how much less I'm titling my posts? Probably not, since I usually fix that within 2 minutes of posting. You would have to have really fast Internet, read my posts at six in the morning, and refresh the page almost every minute. I'm also using the same writing tricks each post. It's hard to notice, but almost every post I use the sentence bridge "however" to create the illusion of competence and skill. I also start every new idea "Oh, blah blah blah." It's probably not noticeable to anyone other than a self-critic such as myself, but it's starting to bother me a little bit. I don't think I'll stop, but I need something somewhat interesting to write about as I sit here and wonder if I should get up and do something productive with my life.
As for the election, so far Obama's in the lead. This will probably be the last Boyd's World post for four years where there is confusion as to who the president is. Who knows, maybe by then this place will be world famous and I'll be a rock star/famous blogger. Crush of Society will be launching their world tour and I'll get to meet the future candidates when it gets to Washington.
I've also noticed that my posts are generally longer and a little less incoherent. They do, however, seem to cover multiple topics each time.
Well, I'm going to get up and become a productive member of society now. By that I mean I'm going to do chores, then head over to my grandparents' house and try to make some moo-lah. Well, see you next time, my friends.

Elections and Expansion

Have you noticed how much more I've been posting lately? I'm not sure exactly why, but I like it. I get to chat with all of you wonderful readers more often, and I can cover all the topics I wish to. I still haven't gotten to covering the big project I proposed last week, but that will take time. I've been unusually inspired recently, so I've had stuff to write about every time I log on. Eventually, however, I'll get some inspiration eventually and try to achieve the mammoth task.
I decided early on I wouldn't be overly political on here, but with election day merely hours away, I'd like to talk about the candidates. First, let's cover Obama. He is probably going to win, and here's why: he's talking about change, and that's what most Americans want. McCain, however, seems to be somewhat poorly represented and ill-broadcast. Now, I'm writing this totally impartially, so don't take this the wrong way. I really shouldn't be talking about any of this, since I don't have to pay taxes yet and I don't have a full grasp of all the issues. Unfortunately, this is my electronic domain, and I'll do what I want while I'm in here.
In other news, more people yet are being referred to Boyd's World. I tell anyone I think cares even the least bit, and quite often they show their friends. That's how Ashley discovered Boyd's World; Alix showed it to her. Now she has her own blog, and has shown a lot of people this site. It's a growing kingdom, but I'll never forget the pioneer of this lovely place, especially because I'm going out with her. Yes, you heard me right. Drew has a girlfriend! She is a wonderful person, and I'm ecstatical to be her boyfriend.
Well, I've got to get back to watching the SNL Election Bash on channel 2. Where else will I get all of my world news?
I shouldn't be allowed to type when I'm tired.

A Moment of Inspiration

It's weird. All of a sudden, within two months, my blog has gone from being virtually unknown to semi-popular. People I don't even hang out with are coming up to me and complimenting me on Boyd's World. I'm still shooting for being on VH1's 40 Best Peices of Web Junk, but I'd say this is a pretty good start. Like I say, you have to start out local. Okay, I don't really say that, but who cares. Stop pointing out my flaws, you jerks.
I know that yesterday I had a great topic to write about this morning, but now it's completely left my mind. If you know what it was, please tell me. Instead, I will once again write about whatever comes to my mind.
Oh, now I remember! I was going to compare this to my journal! Anyway, when I was younger, I kept a journal, in which I wrote about all of my recent experiences, crushes, so on and so forth. Now, I don't write in it. It bothered me fore a great while that I stopped putting entries in, until the other day. I realized that instead of a journal, like I had, I really needed a platform from which to tell people about my life. My journal was only read by me, so the writing style suffered. This is designed to be read by the masses, so it is written in that manner. The writing in my journal was very forced sounding, and artificially cheerful. With Boyd's World, however, I write almost exactly the same as I talk. Therefore, It's much more realistic sounding.
Quite honestly, I don't think I'll be able to write in my journal anymore. It's hard to skip an entire year and a half, and then just act like nothing happened. It's hard to sound sincere when writing, "Oh, and by the way, I moved into a new house, went out with three girls, and became class president during the time I quit entering." It just sounds ridiculous. I really need to be able to write on the edge of the moment, because otherwise I go back and despise what I wrote.
Oh, one other quick thing. You know that post about the prep who wouldn't hang out with a kid because he was fat? Yeah, both the prep and the other kid found out about the post. First, one of my favourite readers asked me who the person that was overweight was right in front of him, then he got mad when he found out who the prep was, and now neither of them are talking. Really, I don't feel bad, because someone as conceited as the prep in question should not be allowed to say something like they did and get away with it. I'd feel worse if it had been added to by me, but my account was totally true.
Well, the bells about to ring, and I just realized I forgot to check out this week's Slowwave. Until next time, Drew Morgan.

Let's Party Some More!

Well, the party went awesome. I won't go into specifics, as not to embarrass some of my fellow party goers. (wink wink) However, I do expect you all to feel pity for me. I went to a party that consisted of seven girls and yours truly. I discovered they like to giggle and shriek a lot. My ears were bleeding by the end. The certainly turned red from embarrassment enough times.
Despite the odds against it, however, I had a ton of fun. I've discovered partying, and I want more. I'll have to start having my own, so there's no deficiency in them. Getting bored? Throw a party. Invite girls. Problem solved.
Obviously, I don't intend on getting smashed every weekend, or going to raves. I'm in my flippin' early teens, so that's not really even an option. I just like to see my friends in a less constrictive environment than school every once in a while. That's why I love being in band. We have parties occasionally, as well as a yearly trip to Cedar Point. Our teacher is incredibly laid back, so it's just as good as completely non-school stuff. You would be amazed at what goes on in those practice rooms.
Well, I have to go back to sitting in my living room watching Scrubs and wishing it was Monday. I know your all thinking, "Who likes Mondays?". Well, I do, and I don't care about your opinion a regarding it. Mondays mean the beginning of the week, and the week means I get to see my friends again. But enough about me. Let's get back to sitting in my glider rocker, watching an episode of Scrubs that I've seen a 100 times already, wishing I could see my friends.
Peace out, man.

Let's Party!

This post will be short and sweet, because I've got to get going to a party at which Alex and Ashley will be. It's going to be cool, because I rarely get invited to parties. I suppose the type of people that would invite me to parties don't ever throw them. Well, I meant it when I said this post would be brief, so I gotta go. See ya!
