Journal: What I Did On My September Vacation

Many of you have been wondering (OK, one of you...Mom) what I was doing during in the month of September instead of updating this award-winning blog. Not that it has already won any awards, but I do not know how to conjugate verbs into the hopeful tense.



But I digress.

In short, I decided to pursue some of my other interests. And since you asked (again...Mom), I thought that I might present a journal of my "other-than-blogging" experiences.




I finally cashed in on the opportunity to make an important speech on a topic I knew absolutely nothing about.








I finally ran in the far lesser-known, "Chasing of the Bulls" in Pamplona.









I finally realized my dream of jumping out of an airplane with nothing more than an anvil. You can't see me in this picture as I fell much faster than the others in my group.




[At this point, I was forced to take 2 weeks off to heal. Who knew?]





I finally found out if an XBOX 360 controller can fit down an 11-year-old's mouth after an unsuccessful, marathon tournament of Super Mario Kart.



 




I finally built a machine that has no practical use. Or way to turn it on.







I finally succeeded in my quest to conquer time travel. I closed my eyes one afternoon, and when I reopened them, it was 20 minutes later. The Future!

It is good to have you back. Now please return my anvil. Thank you.

Jeff: I'm glad to be back in the saddle again, as Velociraptor-riding Camp begins in only a few months.

I *thought* one side of your head looked a bit flatter than the other, but figured it was just the angle of the photograph. Parachuting with an anvil was most likely the cause. I'm sure it will puff out again...

Yes. Similar to the reflex action of my arch enemy: the cushioned toilet seat in the upstairs bathroom.
