from the desk of: george washington

hey humans. this is george. sean said that everyone would be interested in hearing about me, so josephine asked me to write a little something about how my life's going lately. since i recently learned how to type, i accepted the challenge. but what to say?
here is the thing: i mostly sleep. because i am a fucking cat.
here are some places i like to sleep:
on josephine
on brian
on guests
in drawers
in the dryer
on the tv
on the computer monitor

other things i enjoy doing include: stretching, walking/perching on tv and computer monitor, looking out windows, trying to escape my apartment, taking really long pees, and scratching bitches.

things i will never do include: save british children, invite clementine or saber over (thanks brian and josephine), forget upton.

i am pretty happy here at 2016 banita street apartment 4, but i wish i could go outside. jo says that she will get me a collar and then we'll see. but jo is a pirate hooker. she feeds me twice a day which is sweet, but i was getting a little hefty there for a while. so now she starves me and makes me run on treadmills. yeah. that's true.

time to go sleep. bye bitches. don't ever forget: I WILL KILL YOU.

i'll be in town on the 20th for a few days (minus the 24th and 25th)

who wants to hang out with me?


for those of you who don't already know, i'm leaving the nasty nac and moving to austin for a few months. i'll be that cool and live with my mom until i leave for new zealand. dru and i are going to open a hostel. yes, you can be jealous. and yes, you will get the same 'friend discount' that everyone else gets. 5%.

right now i'm feeling a little daunted by the prospect of getting a loan and putting all my eggs into remote oversees tourism. but, that aside, i'm in a really good place. dru and i are both committed to Hostel Takeover, and we can make it happen.

sweet name huh?

i'm obviously sad about ending this 6 year stretch, but as many of the authors on this blog know, it is about time. i'm 24. so a 1/4 of my life has been inside this loop. i don't regret staying. even after seeing cotten, dru, lauri, max, kevin, zero, micha, dan and others go, i knew i would leave when it was my time. that time is now. i think this is the waning of my time here and that is the best time to leave. i think i would be bitter and unhappy if i were to see my 7th fall semester begin in nac.

let's talk about epicness. no- fuck talking- let's enact epicness. i want my going away party to be spoken of in the same breath as mabeufapooza, the tickle me elmo craze and the sacking of rome. currently i only have me getting kicked out of the FB on the agenda. but we can work on it over the next few weeks.

This one goes out to all my fellow actors...


Vinnie Jones, actor and former soccer star, was arrested early Friday morning in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

According to reports the arrest was to due to an incident at a local bar when apparently Jones got involved in an "extremely bloody fight."

Jones suffered some injuries in the fight. He was smacked in the face with a beer mug causing his nose to bust open during the fight. Jones went to the local hospital for his injuries.

Jones was booked for misdemeanor simple assault and the other individual in the fight was booked for felony aggravated assault.

Vinnie posted a $400 bond and the other guy is still in jail.

For someone with a history of violence, such as when he was found guilty of assaulting a neighbor, let's see if the judge will be lenient on Jones.

New Address

So, I'm now totally moved out of the dorm and into my apartment. I'm pretty happy about it, even though my roommate is mehhhh. I'm particularly happy to have some of the posters from Upton back up - the Big Lebowski and Rush Hold Your Fire poster from the living room, some of the stuff from my room. I threw away that half-naked broad though.

Anyway, I wanted to post my new address for those of you who might want to write me letters and send me things (thanks Sarah, Josephine, Katie! Sorry I fail at writing back. I'll write you letters in January.) such as say, birthday cards, when I get back up here. New address is: 8864 United Lane Apt. 4, Athens, OH 45701.

Also I will be in Texas this weekend. Let us make with the feasting and the merriment!

new years

anyone have any ideas rolling around for a new years eve party yet?

i want to come to nac for new years, but not unless you guys are planning on being there and getting together.

if you all want to carpool and drive 2 hours to Humble, we could have a party there in a big friendly house with lots of space, a fire pit, and beds/couches to crash on. just throwing that out there.

let me know when something transpires.

One of the lawyers I work for has a son in a fraternity. They were "dicking around" and this happened. Apparently the handle broke off and shot into this guys head. daaaaaang. Luckily it just went through skin so no worries. YIKES.

his words in the email forwarded to me to his father; "Remember I told you the story about the two Beta seniors fucking around with a knife, and blade flew out...look where it ended up. "

i wonder if he turns green

Journey O'Clock

Last night I was walking down Court Street, the main drag of town, listening to my iPod when I started to hear what sounded like a crowd of people singing. I took off my headphones and looked across the street to discover some 35 people standing on the steps of the Courthouse, singing "Don't Stop Believing". Some of them had Santa hats on, so I wonder if they had been singing carols and then broke into Journey'o'clock.

Pretty sweet moment of my life right there.

hot tranny mess

hott stuff

how do I make the fire in my fireplace go out?

hello youtubes!

i def stayed a while and listened
move over daft punk cuz that ronald jenkees dude is sweet in every way

the story of the picture

this weekend clementine was visiting me and brian so george was not altogether thrilled. he likes her ok, but he only wants to play with her when she does not really play back. which is not usually clementine's style. she is a hands on friend. or, tongues on.
so as i was about to go to bed i realized i hadn't seen george in a while. i feared that he might be outside (yes he is a domesticated creature now) but knew that he is a good hider so he might bre inside, and that he could handle it if he was outside, and i gave up looking for him.
i went to bed, and before i fell asleep, brian came and brought me to the laundry room. because he had found george. in the dryer. i had left my clothes in there, and the door open, so i guess he decided to make himself at home in there among the clean, yummy clothes. he was cleaning himself and as brian tried to take a picture he got up and started to come out, and thus the picture on the sidebar. <--------
the moral of this story is that george is the CUTEST THING ever.
thank you.

Sunday, November 9, 2008



it's been awhile since i've posted in this so i figured now's the time.

one. i had a dream a couple of nights ago. i guess more of a nightmare than a dream. i've been having lots of crazy dreams lately. but this one tops the list. i was somewhere outside with a lot of strangers and i looked up and perched on a telephone wire was this monkey vampire looking thing. like it was the size of a human, had fur and a tail, and the face of a vampire. first there was just one of them and then a lot more came jumping out of i don't know where, i guess air, and they were all perched like birds. that was basically the dream. i made myself wake up.

two. ryan and i were at heb, standing in line and ryan picks up a tabloid and starts flipping through it. there was a story about my monkey vampires that i just dreamt about. insane. they're called popabowas. and the article had illustrations. EXACTLY what they looked like in my dreams. except these ones had wings. the ones in my dream could have had wings. they just weren't spanned out. seriously. popabowas. the article said they mainly stalk men's dreams. i think mine really tried to get to ryan but instead got me. but seriously, wtf?

three. is anyone else scared, because i am.

four. i've been wanting cowboy boots for awhile now. i was just going to pay way too much for some at some vintage shop, but the world loves me. we walked outside to go across the street to the gas station to buy some cigarettes and there were a pair of black cowboy boots by the dumpster. yes, i took them. yes, they're about one size too big. yes, i'm wearing them right now. with socks, of course. i don't know what kind of weird fungus the previous owner had. but anyways, life loves me and my new boots.

five. i finally started my new job at the restaurant, fiddler's hearth. it's kind of slow right now because it's a new restaurant. but it's cool. and i got to play with medicine balls today. the work out kind. they're heavy. but yeah. come to austin. come to the restaurant and tip me mad.

six. i miss everyone. tons.

seven. this is the first time in my life that i am not going home for thanksgiving. sad. i miss my family.

talk about the weather or how the weather used to be.

ok, so i promise i'll start posting pictures with my next posts. i just always forget my camera when i end up going somewhere to use the internet.

top 5 weakerthans songs:
1. left and leaving
2. the reasons
3. plea from a cat named virtue (because it makes me think of dijon)
4. night windows
5. utilities

these are subject to change. feel free to comment.

top 5 pixies songs: (because i said this at the harp and i strongly believe it and it needs to be in writing)
1. hey
2. where is my mind
3. debaser
4. gigantic
5. gouge away

high five to rabbit for graveyard shifts and news reports from the transgender department.

my favorite college professor is writing a book about pop culture and he wants to me read the first two chapters he's written. he's written more, but he just wants my opinion on the first two i guess. i'm pretty much the most excited i've ever been. this guy is the reason i want to be a teacher more or less.

and in 18 days i get to see my family for the first time in 9.5 months. be excited for me.

i'm going to try to get andrew to answer my phone calls and maybe we can make a trip over there.

the flip side to prop 8

Halloween in Athens

So, there was quite a lot of buildup towards Halloween in Athens. It was supposed to bring in 20,000 people from out of town - into a town that was normally only about that size. I'll admit, it was fairly crazy. Nothing on the scale of Mardi Gras; close, perhaps, to 6th Street on a really wild night. But with more costumes. I had a pretty good time - I dressed up as the narrator and had a delightful mustache as previously mentioned.
Around 4pm or so I was in the office in the English building, trying to do some work, and I decided to go get some coffee and see if it was starting to get weird outside. Turns out, they block off the main drag of town early in the day and have bands and such playing. This band was playing "Bulls on Parade" when I walked up. And the lead singer was wearing a Hulk Hogan outfit. Woot.

I eventually went downtown at like 7:30 or so, and it was staring to pick up. I was with my friend Ali and two of her friends - one was in from New York, one was in from L.A. I felt fancy, partying with rich socialites. There were some McCain/Palin supporters on this balcony, yelling down at the people walking by. I couldn't tell if it was a costume or not. Eventually I went to a party being thrown by one of the second-year grad students. There was a band playing in the carport under the house, a fire, pretty girls and lots of drinking. We headed back to the wild block party around midnight, and had probably gotten twice as packed compared to when I had been there earlier. Here are some pictures of some of the people I was traveling around with, one of whom was a Sarah Palin with a sash that said "Miss Alaska" and a shirt that said "Miss Guided, Miss Ogynist, Mistake" on it. And yes, my phone's camera sucks at night pictures. OH WELL.

For some reason I found this to be hilarious


Heroes has parted ways with co-executive producers Jesse Alexander and Jeph Loeb.
the pair were axed because of NBC’s “frustration with the creative direction of the show.” Financial concerns might have also played a part in duo’s firing;the word is episodes were costing over their $4 million budget.

In Support of the Mustache

I shaved off this beauty this morning. Will be growing out again. People didn't believe it was real last night.


During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Moustache. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about tackling men's health issues and being proactive in the fight against prostate cancer.

To donate to my Mo you can either:

  1. Click this link and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account, or
  2. Write a check payable to the ‘Prostate Cancer Foundation', referencing my Registration Number 1827896 and mailing it to:

Prostate Cancer Foundation
Attn: Movember
1250 Fourth St
Santa Monica, CA, 90401

All donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

The money raised by Movember is donated directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation which will use the funds for high-impact research to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.

Did you know:

  • Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in the US with one in six American men developing the disease and more than 28,000 men dying of the disease every year.
  • African American men and those with a family history of prostate cancer are twice as likely to develop the disease and should have regular annual testing starting at 45. All other men should commence testing at 50.
  • Prostate cancer is 90% curable if detected and treated early.

For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the details at:
[ Fundraising Outcomes ]

Movember culminates at the end of month Gala Partés. If you would like to be part of this great night you'll need to purchase a [ Gala Parté Ticket ].

Thanks for your support,


More information is available at

Movember is proudly grown by Canadian Club and Philips Norelco.

Movember is proud to support the Prostate Cancer Foundation.


this month is November Blog Posting Month, so i have started my own blog. i'm not really sure how interesting it will be but i'm going to write every day for a month, and maybe from then on.

Swing State like a Motherfucker

I can haz vote? Yeah, I voted Green for Congress. What of it? (Though I was tempted to vote for Charlie Wilson and Jimmy Stewart because of their names.)

After I voted, I was told I had a "voting glow", but it might be the fact that it was 42 degrees outside.

order of shit mabeuf needs

1. Dynamo 3-peat
2. obama/begich victory
3. stevens guilty

well my friends, check off #3!!!!!! stevens was found guilty, and white that is in no way (read:zip zilch zero none) a guarantee of begich's victory on the 4th, it certainly keeps him from head-shot that an innocent verdict would have been.

call and congratulate mabeuf!!

the streets of nacogdoches will run with the booze of today's victory in alaska and the rest of the world!

Nac Attack

I will miss the Halloween Party. If there is some facebook invite for it, I never got it. That doesn't matter, cause I can't go to it. I miss Nac. I miss my friends. Life here is not as cool and exciting. You guys are all so individually weird and good that I don't think I can find a replacement clique.

I just wrote a poem about zombies

I'm thinking of turning it in for workshop next week, but I'm not sure.

Somebody's Always Killing Their Loved Ones

When the zombies come for us,
with their rotten meat stench and paralytic shuffle,
I'm afraid we'll have to break up.
Not because I'll feel less of an attraction to you
or we'll argue about who gets to use the chainsaw,
but because I know that we'll inevitably be locked
in a room together in some abandoned warehouse,
strip mall, or grocery store. And you know how it is
in the movies, when the intrepid survivors find themselves
trapped in a room, doors and windows securely boarded up -
somebody, a mother, a best friend, a lover, is always hiding
the fact that they've been bitten.
I'd rather succumb to the zombie hordes outside and let
myself become a part of the mindless zombie oblivion
than have to kill you. Or, if I'm the one lying about the blood
seeping through the leg of my pants, I wouldn't want
you to shoulder that burden.

Yes, I know that our self-preservation instincts will overcome
our love for one another. You'll trip over something grotesque
and I'll think for a minute of saving you, maybe, but the zombies
will be right behind us. Better you just head north, and I'll make
for the coast. In a few years after this all blows over,
perhaps we'll agree to meet in Poughkeepsie and talk about old times
and laugh about how stupid those zombies were.

For those of you who care

My captor was sentenced yesterday.
It's been a long week.
I'm ready for bed.


miss you guys.

thank goodness for humor

these guys are awesome. i would've just gotten angry. they saw the complete and utter lack of brains in this dude and decided to poke some fun at him. he's worthless, meaning not worth getting my undies in a bunch over. unfortunately, i have temper issues.

stupid experience

I didn't get ANOTHER job I interviewed for. It was a grad research assistant job where I'd do research and co-facilitate a training program for teen parents.

I didn't have as much experience as some other applicant.


I am so sick of being a fucking writing tutor. I hate it. I've outgrown it or it's outgrown me, whatever. I need something more related to counseling and helping others (with LIFE problems, not writing papers).

I hate life at this moment.

I want to cry, but I'm at my stupid writing center job, where I make very little money and am beginning to hate every stupid fucking freshman and ESL student that walks in here. Fucking bucket heads.

I want a beer.

some quotes from my house last night

the whole time i'm trying not to say anything.

"the daily show is actually more conservative than the colbert report"

"no, the colbert report is. colbert is really the most conservative person on tv, and he's just fooling everyone."

about palin "i don't like 'that' woman. not that i'm anti-women, but i don't like her......if a woman is president, i'm moving to canada."

and then i kinda had to focus on my mouth staying closed.

i'm andrew and i'm dumb

last night on the history channel they had "Monster Hunters: Giant Squid", needless to say i stayed up till 1 when it was over. I love the shit out of squid, especially after one almost killed the annoying dive supervisor. but unfortunately i am one of the worlds leading researchers on the the buggers, so there was only a bit of new info for me. UNTIL i saw the next show was "Monster Hunter: Giant Spider". Now, if 100ft squid arnt your thing, what about 5 foot wide tarantulas that EAT DOGS. Granted, unless you live in the jungle/rainforest you wont have to worry about that...

Sunday, October 19, 2008

Serious question, guys.

What the fuck should I be for Halloween? This is more important than in years past; I feel an obligation to step it up given the importance and general debauchery of Halloween in this town. So far the only idea I've given any consideration is something we were talking about in the office, going as literary concepts. I was thinking of being The Narrator and dressing somewhat fancy and narrating everything that goes on around me all night. Until I get punched in the face.

halp plz

this looks like it will be pretty cool

Also, this article

Memorable lines include:

"I got a decent sample anyway: half men, half women, half white; a third were over 50, and I'm pretty sure 12% were gay, even if 4% were probably denying it to themselves."

"I was told by the very nice election-board workers that in-person early voters come in two varieties: the superinformed and the people Obama supporters pick up off the streets and throw into a van. You can tell the difference mainly by smell."

Ohio, Autumn

I've always enjoyed what I think of as "Fall" - slightly crisper air for about one week a month in October and November, the occasional windiness, pumpkin carving and pumpkin pie. Now that I live in Ohio, however, I have truly experienced the transition to Autumn. Trees light up for a short, but wonderful, burst of color, a festival of lights in miniature. I now understand what the point of a Fall Foliage Tour might be - an experience that should I desire to undertake is available out of Athens by train. Apparently it's kind of boring, though, because it goes in a straight line and back, instead of a circle.

The weather has been consistently chilly; the days that I'm not forced to wear a hoodie, it gets up to maybe the mid-eighties range. Those days are pretty rare though. This is the kind of cold weather I like, and I realize now that in the past when I've claimed that I prefer the cold to the heat, this is the cold I was thinking of. I honestly have very little scope of what I'm going to be getting into in the winter here. I have the feeling that once I'm in it for a few months and forced to be up to teach at nine in the morning, I'll not enjoy the cold as much as I once thought. For now, I'll enjoy the "cold" weather and beautiful surroundings while I can still get away with not wearing a hat and gloves. I hope you enjoyed this little reflective piece/minor update on my life in Ohio. HERE ARE PICTURES.

reading and ego-entrism

do you apply most things you read to your own life? (brian, i know you don't read.. you can skip this, or insert "watch" and "movie" for "read" and "books")
i do. maybe this is good, and helps me process information/plots, and also my own feelings/happening, and maybe it's bad, and keeps me from delving into other characters instead of "losing myself on books" which is i think the point of some books. and movies.
anyway. i just finished reading the poisonwood bible and it made me think of sam a lot. first of all, it criticizes religion a lot, which obviously sam was down with. secondly, the loss of a character and the reaction of others (no i'm not giving anything away- it's mentioned pretty early on) was remarkably similar in many ways to my experience with sam's death. mostly the part where they have to tell another character about it. granted, it was in africa. and the person did not die in nearly the same way. but still. i think death and the reactions to it are pretty universal. they differ in manifestation but not really in the basics.
i know this is vague, but i think everyone should read the book and i don't want to give it away. and i know it's sad, but i have come to the conclusion that i should be less afraid to make people feel sad when i talk about it because i effing need to talk about it. anyway, i kind of had to get that out, because i finished the book and had to go directly to class and take a quiz so it wasn't really enough processing time.

best moment of my day? using "godammit donnie, you're out of your element" in perfect context to my coworker.

i think we need a new social contract. i mean, honestly...when was the last time anyone thought about revising the old lass... french revolution? communism? i feel like im watching a dogfight: politicians are the dogs, ceo's are the gamblers, and the rest of us are zombies.

I'm beginning a job as a waitress this week. I have never waited tables before, but I have to go through a really thorough training program first. I'm so nervous. What if I drop a tray? Or spill something all over my customers?

It has cooled down a lot here in Dallas which is very exciting for me. Autumn is my favorite season. I feel inspired and ready for change.

What are you guys looking forward to in the next few months? I mean, besides Halloween which is the greatest holiday ever.

This is amazing. Seriously.

MONROE, Wash. – In a move that could be right out of a Hollywood movie, a brazen crook apparently used a Craigslist ad to hire a dozen unsuspecting decoys to help him make his getaway following a robbery outside a bank on Tuesday. He then made his escape in an inner tube on the Skykomish River.

The robbery happened about 11 a.m. on an armored truck guard at a Bank of America branch.

"He was wearing a dust mask, a particle mask. At first I thought it might be a surgical mask. I still didn't think anything was wrong, just unusual. Then I noticed he had a pump sprayer," said Mitch Ruth, who had looked out his office window and noticed the man walking into the bank.

9/30/08: Bank car robber escapes on Skykomish River

KING 5 North Bureau

North Bureau blog

The robber sprayed the guard with pepper spray, grabbed a bag of money the guard was carrying and ran about 100 yards to the creek that runs into the Skykomish River, shedding clothes as he ran.

But apparently, the robber had planned ahead. In case anyone was hot on his trail, he had at least a dozen unsuspecting decoys waiting nearby, which he recruited on Craigslist.


An armored car sits outside a Bank of America branch in Monroe, Wash. on Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2008. Police say a man tried to rob the car, then jumped into a creek that led to the Skykomish River.

"I came across the ad that was for a prevailing wage job for $28.50 an hour," said Mike, who saw a Craigslist ad last week looking for workers for a road maintenance project in Monroe.

He said he inquired and was e-mailed back with instructions to meet near the Bank of America in Monroe at 11 a.m. Tuesday. He also was told to wear certain work clothing.

"Yellow vest, safety goggles, a respirator mask… and, if possible, a blue shirt," he said.

Mike showed up along with about a dozen other men dressed like him, but there was no contractor and no road work to be done. He thought they had been stood up until he heard about the bank robbery and the suspect who wore the same attire.

From there, the cook made his watery escape in a creek that dumps out into the Skykomish River. One witness said the robber swam away, but another said he used an inner tube to get away.

"We did get an inner tube that was about 200 yards from the place where he entered the water and took that for evidence," said Debbie Willis, Monroe Police.

Investigators believe accomplices could have picked the robber up at a nearby boat launch or park.

The FBI is helping Monroe Police trace the ad and want to talk to anyone who responded.

"Any piece of information anyone has could be the piece of the puzzle we need to apprehend the suspects," said Debbie Willis, Monroe Police.

Some Monroe residents, while not endorsing what the robber did, are somewhat amused.

"Creative. Not a right way of doing it, but creative," said Monroe resident Byron Bevard.

"I grew up in LA and I never heard of anything so crazy in my life," said resident Sarah Vazquez.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 20s, between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-10, wearing a dark blue shirt, jean shorts and a mask.
