don’t buy pleated pants. they’re tacky and generally old, boring people wear them. don’t buy pleated pants for your loved ones either. if you have a pair or three, give them to charity and buy yourself some plain front chinos.
one Christmas, my sister gave me a pair of pleated pants as a gift. i didn’t wear them even once—i don’t even know what i did with them. i think i gave them to the brother francis shelter. i feel bad, but i’m not wearing pleated pants. no way jose. plain front is the way to go.
on my last trip into ankritz, i picked up my son from school. i took off his shoes and found him wearing women’s socks! this was on november 4th, 2008. the socks were low cut, white, and they had a little pink stripe on the bottom. we went straight to jc penny’s and bought some socks for boys. his mother gets alot of money for child support, and the woman still has him wearing women’s socks! she wears dolce and gabbana shades and he wears women’s socks. what’s wrong with that picture?
on another trip, i picked him up from school and he looked pretty sorry. he was wearing high-water pants and funny looking shoes. we went straight to foot locker and got some shoes and then to army/navy for some new pants that FIT. i called her to drop him off, and she was at nordstrom’s shopping! she’s shopping at nordstrom’s while he’s looking pretty sorry. there’s something wrong with that picture. i told her to dress him nicer and that i don’t want to see my son in sorry looking clothes. she said that he dresses himself. i told her to parent him and dress him. she wasn’t having any of it.
it makes me mad when i find my son looking pretty sorry and she’s all decked out in nice clothes. my son deserves better.
the other day saima showed me someone on her myspace page and her many pictures. she pointed out that in all her pictures, she has the same smile. a fake and as saima put it, 'staged' smile. it was kind of funny to see. fake ass smiler. she was a pretty girl too. pretty and FAKE! haha! let me add that she was really pretty, and FAKE!!!SHE’S A FAKE SMILER! i hope she reads this post and changes her FAKE ASS SMILE. i doubt it. am i mean or what? i think not. SHE’S A FAKE SMILER! okay, enough already.

i have this tendency to dumb myself down sometimes. i think its kind of fun in an ali g kinda way to have peeps think they’re one up on ya. i learned to show this type of behavior selling t-shirts with andrei. there were so many peeps out there who knew about this and knew about that, that you would’ve thought they were the authority on the subject. i found it fun, in some sort of weird, simple way, to ask questions about the subject and respond like i had no clue about it. we had so many peeps going, giving us information that we supposedly didn’t know yet. i think it was all part of our empowerment to others. the dumbing-down was in no way an intentional act—it was just easier to act like you didn’t know, then telling the person “i already know that.” it was harmless. and still is. try it sometime.
i’m starting to really like tumblr. i find it very easy to post pics, stories, quotes, and all that jazz. i think i’ve found my new blog spot. i’ve posted many cool things and cool posts at boyaq.blogspot.com and on my myspace page, but i’m finding tumblr more user-friendly. naa mean?
i liked my blogspot, but this site is cooler! haha! i can even bold face my words or italicize them, not that that’s the selling point. anyways, i think i’ve made my point.
i was reading my blog on myspace a couple months ago out of boredom and i was laughing. i posted some pretty funny shit on that site. i liked labeling my posts on my blogspot page too. oh well. the blog on myspace is like the original nintendo, the boyaq.blogspot.com is a psII, and this one is like an xbox 360. okay, this is getting corny. peace out, God bless, and have a great weekend. get a tumblr account.
“compensation? compensation? now what would YOU say be my compensation for being strapped down and sodomized by four white guys? or four black guys?”—max cady, cape fear, 1992. its been awhile since i’ve seen that movie, so the quote may be a little off. max cady was played by robert de niro.
i still have the ability to sense low pressure changes in the temperature. its an ability that i would rather lose or throw out the window. so, whenever the weather is about to change for snow or rain, i get less coordinated in my movements, i’m a little more quiet, and my cognitive functioning has slowed down a bit. for simplicities sake, this altered state of mind can be likened to a sober person drinking six beers, without smelling like beer or talking nonstop. its not like i get dumber under these low pressure conditions. its just that my mental acuity is not as sharp. so, the next time you see me, and its snowing, be nice, say hello, and talk about hunting, the weather, or some other subject that doesn’t require much thought. avoid politics, the latest alaskan news, or deep ass subjects into my work. sound good?
this last fall when i was voting in the primary election, i couldn’t vote for uncle ted. this was because i was a registered democrat. i could only vote for democrats! i felt like i was missing out in the polls. it was during this primary election process that i thought otherwise. strategy was on my mind.
nates usually vote democrat because they are REGISTERED democrat. i thought about it and came to a strategic conclusion. why not register republican so my vote can really count? if you think about it, the democratic candidate of choice usually will head his way (we’re not there in time to say ‘her’) to the general election. why not vote on the republican ticket and vote for the OTHER guy? case in point: don young vs. sean parnell.
if nates really wanted the 2008 u.s. house election to go to ethan berkowitz (d), then nates that are registered republican could’ve voted for sean parnell—native votes would’ve put sean parnell past don young in the primary—don young, goodbye and good luck.
you see, the trend for native voters is to vote democrat (REGISTERed democrat). if nates changed their party to republican, we could’ve changed the outcome of this year’s race. the purpose of the primary election is to weed out the ‘weaker’ candidates. the general election is the one that really matters, and during the general election you could vote either way. so, to put my earlier hypothetical into play, the candidates for the general election would’ve been ethan berkowitz and sean parnell. nates who are democrat in their hearts, but are registered republican, could’ve voted for ethan. you don’t have to be of the republican party to vote democrat. hey fellow nate, register republican.
sometimes i miss my family. sometimes i miss going to a.c. and seeing peeps from back in the day. sometimes i miss the potholes in the road and the million cabbies roaming the streets. no, i don’t miss those damn cabs. i don’t miss the potholes either.
i miss my dad. i haven’t seen him in a long time, it seems. he’s a very strong man. he’s an old man. he’s my dad. he’s 82 years old, and if he sees may 22nd in 2009, he’ll turn 83. i met an older guy in togiak once. the older guy knew my dad from back in the day. from the 50’s. the older man told me that my dad was cool. he said that my dad told him to keep his head up and do good. that sounds alot like my dad.
i think about me and my family and my dad. there are alot of similarities of my life with my dad’s. he used to be a teacher. i used to be a teacher. he went to work in bristol bay when he was younger. i used to work in togiak as a teacher when i was younger. i miss my peeps back in togiak to this day. i remember him to be a hard ass, somewhat. i’m somewhat of a hard ass. he used to tell peeps to do good. i used to tell my students in togiak to do good.
saima and i plan to go home for thanksgiving. it’ll be great to see family again. all my little monkey nieces and nephews are bigger monkey nieces and nephews. when i told my dad i was moving up here two years ago, he told me that its ‘far away.’ i am so far away from home. next week will come soon.
i’ll be heading to ankritz in december for work. it’ll be my fifth trip in three months. crazy. this time, they’ve got me shacked up at the cook. now, i’m not really into history and all, but i understand captain cook didn’t treat the nates very nice. the hawaiians hate the guy. i probably wouldn’t like him too if i knew my history about captain cook.
the only thing that i care about is great customer service. the hotel captain cook provides perhaps the best customer service for hotels in ankritz. i like. i like the hotel for great customer service.
i was reading my november issue of maxim and came across this piece about the founder of tumblr and his young age. curiousity about tumblr got the best of me. there’s still alot i don’t know, but so far, i like it. i think its kinda cool. we’ll see how this post fares.
