What is everyone doing?

Hey guys-
I'm in Orlando right now for national training (my second week at work). We stay very busy here working all day and partying all night with an open bar every night. Haven't been able to pay attention to politics much the past few weeks- anything interesting to discuss? What are y'all doing?

I've quit this blog, you all suck, especially narco, is he even still alive?

I think a suicide bomber got him. Or maybe he was trying to evict the Jews from the Gaza Strip and they killed him.

I think that or he is at synagogue praying for his brethern in Zion.

based on my new found fame in the blogosphere i think we should step this thing up a bit...go national or something (or local) (or just involve more people because nolan and narco suck)...but i was talking with dr hart and came up with the idea that he needs to get a blog...he goes to a lot of blogs, comments on a lot of blogs, but doesn't have one in class...imagine, dr. hart's office hours or dr. hart at the bar in a web-based format...not quite as hilarious but at least it comes close...what do you think? try to recruit him as a contributor?

he said he has thought about it but figured he'd wait til retirement, this would require less time though...

Get him involved. I think it would be fun. However we might have to tone down the retoric a bit. He might be offended by all the regilious posts.

I moved to Lexington a week ago and have already visited Cincy twice since then because I have nothing to do until class starts. I also do not have internet yet (I am in Cincy now!!!!11). It kind of sucks so far...all of the other TA's are in their later 20's and married or fat/unattractive...people I don't want to befriend. My apartment is very tiny...about 2 dorm rooms in size and I live in a building with zero (0) unmarried American people. Hopefully when classes start up I'll have more success. I am trying to work it so that I have 5-day weekends (class only on Tuesday and Wednesday) so I will probably have time to make some visits.

I'll definitely post more when my internet is up and running.

Maybe you should invite Dr. Hart...he would certainly spice up the blog...especially now since GARLAND IS STEPPING DOWN!!!!!!111

Narco...sorry to hear that...looks like you are going to have to start eating more fried foods just to fit in (oh wait, you are the guy that cooks cheese sticks in cooking oil...) or at least get married, how's that going anyways?

Do you get to see any cool SEC teams this football season?

So lets do a status check:

Purn: working
Colvin: working
Narco: starting the new job
Steve: on the freaking beach (vacation yet again).
Nolan: MIA

Actually, I've made some pretty big decisions in the past few days. I think I'm going to put myself on the track to become a high school teacher rather than a college professor. I am currently looking to apply to Cincinnati's education school. This means that I'll probably only be at UK for the semester. I think I will probably look for a job so I can work during the day and take classes at night. Also, I should do that so that I have health insurance.

Also, Kate broke up with me a couple of weeks ago...so that sucks. I am now back on the proverbial market.

So the status check, I suppose, is a little bit more complicated in my situation now.

Sorry to hear about Kate, Narco. That's a pretty big decision to make with regards to school as well. I'll call you this week to hear more details.

And I am working now! It is "on the beach" as I look to get staffed ASAP. Unfortunately, there is not a whole lot to do other than take e-learning classes or play monopoly in the spirit of Purn (no, I haven't actually done that).

Who is planning on going to homecoming? What about the OSU-Miami game? I will be there for both. And I am all for getting more people involved in the blog... maybe we need more focus? I dunno. What would be interesting is getting some people to make some noise.

When is Miami's homecoming game? I made it so I have 5-day weekends here, so I should be able to make it.

 
At 2:42 PM, Blogger Nathan said...

Narco, sorry to hear about Kate, we'll have to touch base this week.

ok...i think its time to take this thing public...that means we might have to cut back on making fun of each other...just a little bit. That also means we should think about how we might be able to attract others to the blog (particularly some liberal commenters) to spur some debate. Dr Hart has agreed to join when he can...does anyone have any ideas? We could have this thing added to the mureview blog roll. I comment on some other blogs (all liberal), i could make it my homepage perhaps some of them will come over and comment? Kuley reads this occassionally (Hi Lauren) but I think she just laughs at us and doesn't take much seriously (I don't know why). Any other ideas?

 
At 2:43 PM, Blogger Nathan said...

is everyone ok with the name? or is matt's brilliant idea a bit cocky for you guys...

I propose we at least change from this ugly ass green color...perhaps red for Miami?

 
At 2:50 PM, Blogger Steve said...

red makes a lot of sense, and can't we get some graphics up there?

you decide on the name, it depends on what we really wanna do with this.

as you can tell i am bored

 
At 2:51 PM, Blogger Steve said...

nevermind I didn't read your post.

Hmm, I will try to think of ideas, but the ones you mentioned are all good. What about having Bailey promote it, or at least mention it in an email?

 
At 3:37 PM, Blogger Nathan said...

I think what we will need the most will be some liberal posters to agitate us as we already will have this conservative brain power at work...

i changed my facebook political status to libertarian today. it was a big step.

 
At 9:04 PM, Blogger Matt said...

Ok I posted a huge post, but didn't actually read your guys. As most of you know I have no computer abilities at all, and I don't know if we can add graphics or change color to red really either. I have no problem turning over those controlls to someone with more abilities, or if you want me to do it I can talk to Shawn he might know. I am all for changing colors to Red, a red Hawk, Elephant all that stuff, but I can only justify so much procrastinating to myself.

As far as the Homecoming game I will be down there probably I am coming for Duck Soup and if I am not overly busy should be able to stay at least for part of the day on Saturday.

This is the kind of activity I like to see. We should try and go back and clean up some of the posts before we go public.

Nathan, maybe you could give us the heads up on what sites you post on and we can tag team them.

I think we should try to get some computer whiz bang to get them to clean the site up, make it look nicer.

Another option we could do... Keep this blog for ourselves and quiet action (I'm not going to post shit going on in boehnerland on a public domain) and then create a public one we promote. Basically, use this one to make fun of each other, keep in touch, and plot taking over the ORP.

What do you think?

 
At 1:21 PM, Blogger Steve said...

I do like having this more as a "keep in touch" blog where we can bullshit. How about keeping this as is and looking at making another where we can recruit some libs to post as well.

 
At 2:10 PM, Blogger Nathan said...

ok well someone think of a new blog name...steve you can create it since you are still on the beach...

 
At 3:04 PM, Blogger Purn said...

Maybe Steve could out-source it with a small percentage of his signing bonus. I'm thinking 3% of the bonus could start us with about a staff 75, a moderately sized office building, a fleet of vehicles (I call the new Z4), and several attractive, young interns.
