Deadly Cookie Dough Strikes Nation!

I have terrible terrible news!!!!

I am no longer in the dorm room!!!!!!

I'm going to have to change the name of this blog to..."From The House Which Is Almost But Not Quite As Interesting As The Dorm Room"

.....Or I could just keep the name the same because summer is not permanant

Which brings me to my first point:


Yes Ladies and Gentleman, school is finally out!!!!

...And yet something is off

Apparantly during High School summer was the best thing to ever happen to a child:
  • Nice Weather!
  • Freedom!
  • Friends!
  • Movies!

Then suddenly I went to college and now....
  • Nice Weather!
  • Job!
  • Friends in other parts of the country!
  • Bored out of my mind!

That list didn't sound as awesome did it??

That's because college actually wasn't that fact I can't wait to go back

(If you are not on the same page as me then your college experience was not what it should have been...try harder)

In Other News..

Some of you may have noticed that I am up at 5 in the morning...

This is because I couldn't sleep

Obviously it is because I have SWINE FLU!!!!!!!!!

Just Kidding

But Really...I'm kind of sick of the "Swine Flu Epidemic" that's sweeping our nation

And when I say sweeping our nation,
I mean being blown out of proportion by our media

Yes I love you newspaper, television, and radio....but this just won't do

For their amusement the media finds it necessary to focus on how catastrophic the swine flu is

Along with leaving out the fact that THOUSANDS more people dying from the "normal" flu...and the fact that the VACCINE has killed more people than the disease


And just when I thought the media couldn't blow anything else out of proportion...A new story came out


Apparantly 66 people have gotten E.Colli sickness over the past 4 months

......I'll say that again


There are 300 billion people in the U.S. and 66 people got sick (And Lived)

According to Health Dictionary 3 out of every 10 thousand people get E. Coli
....That's an expected 10 million cases a year
....66 people is a speed bump

...Or a pebble

No No Wait

It's a Bacterium

*Ba Dum Ching

According to news sources "many" of them had
eaten raw cookie dough before
....."Many" not "All"

Therefore it MUST be the cookie dough

That's like saying 100 people got Cancer and 60 of them drank fruit punch
....Well obviously Hawaiian Punch causes Cancer


Anyone who has bought TollHouse Cookie Dough must return it right now

Because the millions of other people eating cookie dough right now and NOT getting sick are crazy



Why don't people just cook the cookie dough instead?

You get E. Coli poisoning from eating raw beef...but we're still allowed to cook THAT

*Golf Clap For Jeff

Eat TollHouse Cookie Dough
Tape Yourself NOT Dying
Send The Tape To CNN

St. Patrick's Day/ Spring Break

"The Minstrel Boy to the war is gone

In the ranks of death you will find him

His father's sword he hath girded on

And his wild harp slung behind him

Land of Song! said the warrior bard

Tho' all the world betrays thee

One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard

One faithful harp shall praise thee!

The Minstrel fell! But the foeman's chain

Could not bring that proud soul under

The harp he lov'd ne'er spoke again

For he tore its chords asunder

And said "No chains shall sully thee

Thou soul of love and brav'ry!

Thy songs were made for the pure and free,

They shall never sound in slavery!"

This is one of many songs that will be sung in the spirit of:

St. Patty's Day!!!

(For those of you who don't know...the national color of Ireland is actually BLUE)

Of course when this day arrives there will be plenty of
  • Partying,
  • Drinking,
  • Singing,
  • Dancing,
  • General merrymaking

Just as long as people stay safe and have fun......


That's all for my public safety announcement of the day


I have Spring Break this week

Lots of people have been having breaks right around this time, and it's pretty exciting.

I myself am staying here at school for Spring Break.....

Don't feel bad for me...

I'm actually pretty pumped about it...

For those of you going to different countries over break....


I'm Kidding...

But Really

I figured out that College Spring Break was actually way more of a big deal in High School than in actual College.

In High School people were like:

Oh My God! Spring Break once your in college is hundreds of naked women partying in Mexico. And your entire school is there on the beach. And everything is free. And you party like never before in your entire life.

In College people are ACTUALLY like:

Oh you're staying here at college? Ya, I'm going home for a week to hang with my parents and some of my High School friends. Mexico? Haha, maybe if I wanted to spend $2500...and nobody I know wants to come anyway.

So I hope you college kids are doing something fun or interesting!!

I hope you High School kids realize that you don't really have crazy stuff to look forward to!!

I hope you adults which you were back in college!!

And I hope you old people are not reading my blog!! (Just kidding, I love you all just the same)

Keep Living The Dream...
Unless You Get To Go To Mexico...
Then Just Shut Your Face

Dr. Seuss Has Nothing On Me!!

Today is the first day of March, and I am bored out of my mind

So I've decided to rhyme this post for no reason of any kind.

If you want to hear me babble, then go on right ahead

I cannot be held accountable for anything I might have said.

First I'll mention the weather, because I'm feeling lazy

It rains, it snows, it shines, it blows, I'll soon be driven crazy

The trees are bare, the ground is wet, I really hate this season

And you should all agree with me if you are men of reason.

Now to all the women reading, I am sorry for that mistake

But in order to rhyme the sentence it is one I had to make.

Next on the agenda is the midterms coming near

Something nobody looks forward to, for they come twice a year

If you are worried about your grade than I have some tips for you

Simply copy off an Asian, while you're at it make it two.

Now for all you Asians reading I must apologize

I said in the beginning I am not exceptionally wise.

If you find yourself offended then stop your reading here

I do not want an angry mob barking up my rear.

You know classes are tomorrow, and teachers are real pains

You'll be half-way across the country if you have any brains.

I guess classes aren't a problem if you finished all your stuff

But everybody knows that we teenagers have it rough.

You go to class, you call your mom, you finish all your work

You are tired and you're hungry and you're roommate is a jerk.

You're writing for the paper and you have a deadline due

But you cannot find your sources and now you have the flu

If this is not enough, then you go and oversleep your class

Now you're behind in all your work and your teacher kicks your ass.

If this all sounds familiar than I am just like you

But if you don't know what I'm talking about, you're over 22.

Now it's getting close to dinner, and life revolves around my meal

So I guess it's time to call it quits and let my fingers heal.

HOMEWORK: If you thought this post was stupid and will never read again,

I hope that you come back next time when I post God knows when.

Why Are You Awake?

I think it's appropriate that being up at 2:00 in the morning requires me to make a post about it.

And it is this....

The problems with doing homework at 2:00 in the morning!!!


1.You get to do whatever you want ALL DAY

(You can worry about that pesky project later on)

2. It's nice and quiet...everyone's you plenty of:


3.You are too tired to worry about tomorrow, consequences no longer worry you.


1. You are so tired that you are going to do a really bad job...making the process of doing it in the first place.........pointless

2. You are leaving it until the last minute!!

(Creating bad habits for the future)

3. You are rushing through the work because you want to get to bed

4. You are not going to get enough sleep, and therefore the information will not truly register


So for those of you doing homework at this time.....

Shame On You!!!


Good Job!!! Rock On!!!

(It depends on which stance you take...don't let me tell you what's good or bad)

Make Up Your Own Stupid Mind!!!

HOMEWORK: Stay up until 2:00 a.m. then try not to miss your 10:00 a.m. class.

Am I Completely Crazy?

First Draft:

SoI have plenty of friends and what-not who have blogs of their own.

And I was wondering.....

What do all of YOU think of the layout of:

"From The Dorm Room"

I scrolled through the pages and pages of text and thought....

Wow, I am so unprofessional

But I guess the question really goes to you.

I'm known for adding GIANT words and unnecessary color to my blogs..

But does that take away from what I'm saying or make it more interesting?

Believe me:

There's a method to my madness.

I always figured: I write for a paper and I know people get blocks of text everyday.

Whether it's:
  • Reading the newspaper,
  • Doing homework,
  • Reading a book,
  • Anything really

So I figured I'd kind of put on a show....make the page pop out and look crazy.

But I don't need to do that.

HOMEWORK: Comment and tell me what you think!

Second Draft:

I have plenty of friends and what-not who have blogs of their own. And I was wondering what all of you think about the layout of "From The Dorm Room". As I scrolled through the pages and pages of text I thought, "Wow, I am so unprofessional."

But I guess the question really goes to you-the readers. I've been known for adding giant words and unnecessary color to my blogs, but does that take away from what I'm saying? Or does it make the page more interesting?

For People Who Don't Like The Outdoors....

So it's something that has been long due as the nerd I am.......


Here in my dorm room my roommate and I have it pimped out with plenty of technology. We have:
  • Television screen,
  • Large flat-screen computer monitor,
  • Pumpin sound system,
  • PS3 and Wii
....Ya, we're men

So in light of this fact, I've basically decided this:

Once a week, the one called BLISS shall review a piece of technology in the modern world.
This is the word of the Lord.

As said above, this can apply to: A new game, system, movie, speaker set, anything....

And as an avid user of all of the above, you are all soooo lucky to hear from me

(Except of course those of you who actually go OUTDOORS..haha...what a thought)

First on my list:

PS3 VS. Wii

While some people think this extremely easy, it actually isn't...

As both Sony and Nintendo have made a substantial amount of cash with their systems.

For Good Reason

The trick to deciding which system to get is finding out what exactly you are looking for


Wii: Ok, I think everybody knows that the Wii is not exactly known for it's "technology". It's true...when it comes to graphics the Wii is a failure. But when looking at the thing it is pretty obvious...

I mean my sneaker weighs more than that thing.

(For those of you taking that comment literally....Corner)

However, it is not to be said that the graphics are not fun to look at. The graphics fit what the Wii is trying to do. The games Nintendo puts out there are not supposed to look realistic

(Have you seen the giant-headed Mii's??)

PS3: Awesome graphics.
In the PS2 there were a lot of great game intro graphics
...and then the game looked like something out of pacman.
But with the PS3, you feel like you got your money's worth. The games look great, and I have to makes it a little more fun to play when the game looks and feels realistic.

*Winner= PS3


Wii: The Wii is spot on.
With games never seen before, Nintendo constantly has people waiting to see what they come out with next.
Of course, with the WiiMote, they also have the ability to make games that the PS3 cannot.
....Suck it Sony!

PS3: The Playstation has a couple new games here and there.

(I just got this game called LittleBigPlanet, and it's amazingly original and awesome)

But overall, there are really only 4 main game categories for Sony.
  1. You have the "GTA" games...which are just Grand Theft Auto with different titles.
  2. You have the "Prince of Persia" games...these include Viking, Rise of the Argonauts, any game where your some mythical or medieval person in a realm of monsters and for some reason "puzzles".
  3. You have the "Call of Duty" games...including all of the war games, Halo, and any Playstation shooter.
  4. And you have the sports games.
That's it. Predictable.

* Winner=Undecided
While the Wii has many more original games..the few original games PS3 has to offer blow the Wii out of the water. Wii has quantity, PS3 has's a hard call.



You're standing in front of the TV, your lightsaber in hand. As you use the control stick to move Darth Vader, you are swinging your sword through baddies and lunging at the TV, sending robots flying at the wall.
You are playing the Wii, and you are liking it.

You're sitting on the couch, using the same controller you've had for the last 6 years, playing the newest Halo for a week straight. Your leg has fallen asleep, and you are half playing the game, half trying to balance a bowl of popcorn on your stomach.
You are playing the PS3, and you've gained 30 pounds.



Wii: There isn't even enough online play for me to make fun of....Wow

PS3: Makes every game 100 times better.
Online play makes this system what it is.


For those of you who actually read the above portion....You enjoy good commentary on video gaming...and you are a nerd like me.

For those of you who didn't:


You'll have to deal with this only once a week, so pretend to care for the sake of being civil.

That being can make your own gaming decisions. I'm just here to help you along the way.

Just remember, think about you want and look at what I said about each system.

Ask Yourself:

  • Do I want online play?
  • Do I want to jump around or not?
  • Do I like graphics or does only gameplay matter?

These are Life and Death questions

(Once again, if you are taking this literally, you do not know me yet...stay home)

Facebook Me Captain!

It was only a matter of time before I entered into the topic of,


Yes, yes...I realize that this is not a new thing at all, I myself have had one for quite awhile.


There have been recent changes and discussions about it that have caught my attention.

For all you socially awkward people out there:

Facebook is an online networking system that allows you to talk with people...without having to come up with instant responses like on IM.

If you are so socially awkward that you don't know what Facebook is, then you probably wouldn't be reading this blog in the first place......moving on

Who remembers the old fad before Facebook?


However, this social network site has been traded in for Facebook..

Mainly because Facebook has:
  • Better applications,
  • Better interface,
  • It's safer, and
  • More people use it..........

And of course because Myspace is now reserved for pedophiles....but who's judging?

How am I allowed to make these assumptions you ask?


  • It has better applications because there are millions of games, puzzles, interface options, and fun things to do on Facebook....which no offense, beats out being able to....
"Change Your Cursor!!!!! Whoaaaaa!!!"

  • The interface is much easier to read. You don't have a million spam and hoax downloads all over the side of your screen. There are tabs allowing you to look at your information in different categories...which are the same throughout everybodies account.
Unlike Myspace where you find yourself scrolling through random nonsense on their page, while not being able to see the font through the giant picture have a half naked woman they set as their background.

  • Safer isn't even up for debate. The security protection on Facebook is top notch...unless you yourself screw it up. And random strangers can't go in and see your information and pictures....YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT THEM AS A FRIEND.....what a concept.


I sometimes theorize whether or not kids will soon find some other site to talk to each other..because recently something has been taking place that scares children everywhere.


When I say parents, I of course mean our parents, teachers, strange adults, old people......everyone

You see...parents have this deep desire to be seen as "Cool" and "Hip" or "In with the kids".

This causes them to rationalize very irrational decisions...such as getting Facebook accounts.

They don't understand that Billy who posts funny jokes to his friends, and has pictures of himself partying at college....doesn't want his mom commenting on his picture about how he should be studying, or how cute he looks in that hat.

There should be a law,

1st Amendment:

If you are an adult
you should create your own networking system or continue to use email.

2nd Amendment:

If you are in your 20's and you have a Facebook...once you turn 30 your account should be terminated or transfered to the adult networking site...because you have lost you "coolness" status, no matter how bad you want it back.

Now I don't mean to be hating on adults....they love us and try their hardest to keep up with the times.

But we've all had our dad at one point or another look at us and go,

"That was wicked!"

And we just walked away shaking our head.

So who knows the future of Facebook??

Everyone thought Myspace was going to be the ultimate site until Facebook came out

...... and kids realized Myspace was creepy.

Now Facebook is having an influx of adults...and maybe some new site will come out that kids will flock to before adults know what hit them.

Because let's be honest:
How long does it take adults to figure out what's cool...and then figure out how to do it?


..........Case and Point
