Retro HNT: Block Island RI. 1989

I just finished IT. I was soooo proud of myself. Me and my best friend, Narot (he's an illegal alien from the planet Neptune), worked at the Airport Diner cooking corn beef hash and poached eggs...

...we also constructed the most popular sand "castle" on the beach that summer.

Everyone with a camera took pictures, the rest just gawked in awe.

We were so proud of ourselves. 18 and life to go.

I think u 2 that sand castle is quite mission-ary ;-)

The trip, to and from, Dallas to Block Island(on a Grey Hound bus) is one beauty of a story in itself, so I'll save it for another time. I joined the Army soon after me and Narot got back to Texas.

I've been to Block Island in the early fall a few years ago. Can't remember the name of the hotel I stayed at.

It was beautiful.

My teenaged heart would have been a-flutter if I'd known you then...

Pablo Picaso started out by constructing pornographic images when he was a young adult. Very good.

While Nolff makes a good point I would like to add: There is a strong correlation between bed wetting, fire starting and viewing pornography, some think that when exhibited in a juvenile, it is a strong indicator of future anti-social behavior, I myself remain undecided.

I love the Onion...

In a decisive 1–0 decision Monday, President Bush voted to grant the president the constitutional power to grant himself additional powers.

"As president, I strongly believe that my first duty as president is to support and serve the president," Bush said during a televised address from the East Room of the White House shortly after signing his executive order. "I promise the American people that I will not abuse this new power, unless it becomes necessary to grant myself the power to do so at a later time."

The Presidential Empowerment Act, which the president hand-drafted on his own Oval Office stationery and promptly signed into law, provides Bush with full authority to permit himself to authorize increased jurisdiction over the three branches of the federal government, provided that the president considers it in his best interest to do so.

"In a time of war, the president must have the power he needs to make the tough decisions, including, if need be, the decision to grant himself even more power," Bush said. "To do otherwise would be playing into the hands of our enemies."

So, how's the working-out going for your next HNT?

I haven't purchased a Terrell Owens jersey yet b/c I have faith in my Texans.

Oh yeah. It's still on!
