Sudoku Schmudoku

At a White Elephant Party this year, my little brother got a handheld Sudoku game. I set it to easy and was introduced to the game. I ended up playing it for an hour that night without solving a single puzzle- and that was set to easy.

If you've never played sudoku, I suggest you don't. It the most addicting/frustrating/time-consuming/life-draining game in the world. I would put it in the same category as gambling in fact. You always feel like you can beat it, but you don't. And even if you do eventually solve a puzzle, half of your day is gone- poof! into thin air.

Below is a puzzle I printed out a few nights ago. I didn't finish it until 2:00am, and even then, It wasn't right. I pulled it out of the trash as a warning for you all.

The end of this semester was brutal. My wife took this picture after my last final.She found me sandwiched in between the couch cushions.

After 3 huge papers and a book report, I realized that I have been using big words without knowing their true meaning. Like "cognizant" and "pretentious".

Has anyone ever told you you look like...

Most people I ask this question to have some actor that they are compared to. I've been told in the past that I look like the new Batman- Christian Bale. I can't say I disagree with them. This picture for example looks like they took my body, and using photoshop tricks have superimposed in Christian's head. See the scarf around his neck? That's to hide the seam. It's all movie magic.Now, on more occasions than I'd like to admit, I have also been compared to "the farmer from Babe". It's usually by close friends that aren't afraid to tell me the truth. Now how can I possibly look like both these actors?
