The Case of the Missing Hat!

Okay, so this one time, Shaggy, Space Ghost, Magilla Gorilla, Elroy Jetson, and I were hanging out in Elroy's house, when all of a sudden, we saw Top Cat without his hat on. "Someone stole my hat"! Top Cat yelled. This really upset Space Ghost. He and Magilla went into Space's shuttle and flew around and looked for the suspect. I thought it was weird because Top Cat never told us what the suspect looked like until now.

Top Cat then told us that the suspect had blonde hair and a long brown shirt. He also didn't wear pants. Elroy typed it into his mini computer from the future. Only one match came back with that discription. It was Barney Rubble. The rest of us got into the Mystery Machine and headed off to Bedrock.

We pulled up to the Rubble estate and pretended to be Girl Scouts selling cookies. After Barney bought some Thin Mints, I picked up a rock and knocked him out. Shaggy and Elroy carried him into the Mystery Machine. On the way back Shaggy saw a character with Top Cat's hat on. "Zoinks"! Shaggy yelled. He looked and noticed a familiar face. It was his good friend, Fred.

Fred lost his clothes in a a game of strip poker he played with Race Bannon (The older gentleman from "Johnny Quest"), Secret Squirrel, and Boo-Boo Bear. He found a long brown shirt on the ground and put it on. It was also raining at the time, and he needed a hat. Thus explainig why he stole Top Cat's hat. We then returned to Elroy's house

Just then Space Ghost and Magilla Gorilla returned with Hong Kong Phooey all tied up. It's kind of funny because Hong Kong Phooey doesn't have blonde hair or a brown shirt on. Plus, he didn't even have the hat in the first place. After the two felt like fools, Hong Kong Phooey delivered them Hong Kong Phooey chops.

Barney soon recovered and forgave me for knocking him out. Then Papa Smurf came by and brought Fred's clothes back that he won in a game of Russian Roulette that he played with Boo-Boo Bear. Boo-Boo lost.

The End

Make My Wish Foundation.

I'm tired of everybody who has a life threatening disease out there and gets to have their wish come true. What about me? What about my wishes? I mean, I want to play basketball with LeBron James too. Can't I too go back stage and hang out with Snoop Dogg without getting shot? What about my wish that the Jonas Brothers fall off a cliff, die, and get cancer? I want to have lunch with Bono and talk about the olympics. Is that so wrong?

I have more wishes too. What about my wish to hang out with John Stamos and pick his brain about my favorite Full House episode? How about Chuck Norris teaching me Karate or going shopping with Sarah Jessica Parker. You know what would be totally awesome? Being in a movie directed by Martin Scorcesse. That can't happen to me, I don't have AIDS, cancer, or even herpes for that matter. Not that I want that, but it would be nice to get what I want for a change, because singing back up for David Bowie would be pretty nice.

What Was I Thinking!!!

Remember a few months ago, I was upset with church and I was gonna leave both church and the youth ministry because I wasn't getting anything out of church anymore. Well I have some news. Lately I have actually started to get more out of the sermons at church (Weird huh?). Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers.

Things have actually changed in the youth ministry too, but I am planning on taking a break. I have this wild idea to start up a t shirt business. I started hanging out with my good friend Chris a lot. He's been showing me how to make silkscreens. Only because the class I am not able to take the class I wanted to take. I hope to start something up in the next couple of years.

I need to also figure out how to run a business. My grandpa and his wife are planning to invest in this. I would get started right away, but I have no idea whatsoever how to go into business for myself.

U.S.A. U.S.A. U.S.A.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that the olympics are on. I am not like most of the people around the world. I really could care less about the olympics. To me they're are just a bunch of sports that if it wasn't for the olympics, they wouldn't even be on television. There are a few that are on t.v. but, c'mon really. I'm not totally bashing the olympics. They do provide this sense of world unity. And don't get me started on the opening ceremonies. I'm sorry folks, but I just couldn't get into it. It appears that China really doesn't care about the saftey of it's children when the little girl was flying across the stadium. Where was the net? I'm sorry to be a jerk but, I just could care less about the olympic games.

All of that was true until Sunday night. My roomate, Erick is really into swimming. So he was watching the relay. So I watched it with him. Before the race started, the big story was the French were talking a bunch of smack saying that they were gonna crush us. It got off to a rough start. Michael Phelps started it off and he was slow at the start. Then all of a sudden, I got into it. we were starting to loose but we weren't that ahead of first place. Then from out of nowhere at the last leg of the race, this guy, Jason Lezak from Team USA caught up. While watching this, I thought to myself that the French were gonna crush us. Then, Jason Lezak keeps catching up and in the end, the two are neck and neck and Jason just kind of reaches his hand to the wall and winds the race.

After the race was over, they kept showing footage of Michael Phelps and one of the other team members cheering him on. I tried to find the footage on youtube, to show you, but I can't. That moment got me excited about watching the olymipcs. It actually changed my view on the games. To me it was the greatest moment in olympic history.

Jay and his Cat

Check this out. last night I was talking to my good friend, Jay and he was telling me this awesome story. You see Jay has this cat I believe named Chomper (if that's not his name we will call him Chomper and also I have assumed that Chomper is a he). He also has a neighbor who is eight years old and autistic (I don't know the boy's name, so let's call him Tobias). This one time Jay came home and was looking for the cat. Jay was worried because Chomper was an inside cat without claws. He worried that the cat would be unleashed into the real world. Jay asked his parents and nobody knew where Chomper was. He asked his neighbors and this is what happened.

It turned out that somehow Tobias broke into Jay's house and kidnapped Chomper. The neighbors found him and threw him over the fence into Jay's yard. When Jay's mom came home, she found Chomper outside shivering and hiding behind a bush. Jay told me that was quite possibly the greatest moments in his life. The End.

Blog #2
Thanks to all who came and watched me speak last night. I was scared and nervous. It rocked to see you last night. I really needed all the support I could get.
