"Oh, what the heck... let's go for it!"
Yeah, still sick, blah blah blah. Don't worry, I'm just mentioning it in passing for one reason: You'd think, in a way, it would be awesome... Unlimited time to play games, read books, watch TV or movies, and otherwise saturate myself in mindless entertainment. Nope. Believe me, I've tried.
Gads, listen to how pathetic I sound... *shudder*
But most of my symptoms have tapered way down, or disappeared. About the only thing left are the chills and aches. I can handle that. Should be back on my feet again soon, I hope.
So I talked to my brother Johnny on the phone today, from boot camp. Surprise! He's sick, too! Only he still had to do his swimming qualifier, sick or not. He said he passed, but was so cramped and exhausted in the effort, he had to sit out a while... before beginning the other physical training qualifier of the day (he didn't tell me what that one was, but he said he passed it as well).
Uh oh.... am I supposed to be talking about this? I don't know the rules about boot camp and top secret level stuff. Better stop, just to be safe. All that to say, he's plugging along. Chin up, bro!
They just released a new Kid History clip online today (#10), but I don't know.... it didn't really work for me. That's the odd thing about something cool becoming too successful... it changes the underlying vibe... just doesn't feel right. Too forced, too self aware. Same thing happened with Epic Meal Time. The first year it was unique and fun.... now they're all about products and famous guests and reused jokes, etc. They got too big, and lost what made them cool to begin with. I think that's what's happening with the Bored Shorts group.
Not sure how I feel about this next video clip I'm going to show you... on the one hand, I think it's a really funny prank... on the other hand, I'd hate to be on the receiving end of it... Although I guess that could be said about any prank...
What do you think? Thumbs up or down?
Well, anyways, I guess that's it for now. One of the drawbacks of being holed away in one's office for near on a week is that very little worth mentioning in one's blog can happen. Hopefully I'll get my head together soon, and things can get back to normal in my little corner of the world. Until then, thank you for both your patience and your patronage...
Adios for now,
Dave the Phoenix
