Badassery 9/03/10

. The truth is that I'm a bad person. But, that's gonna change - I'm going to change. This is the last of that sort of thing. Now I'm cleaning up and I'm moving on, going straight and choosing life. I'm looking forward to it already. I'm gonna be just like you. The job, the family, the fucking big television. The washing machine, the car, the compact disc and electric tin opener, good health, low cholesterol, dental insurance, mortgage, starter home, leisure wear, luggage, three piece suite, DIY, game shows, junk food, children, walks in the park, nine to five, good at golf, washing the car, choice of sweaters, family Christmas, indexed pension, tax exemption, clearing gutters, getting by, looking ahead to the day you die.

Thinking about the possibilities for an upcoming birthday gift for one of my roommates.

Top Candidates include

1: Best Buy Gift Card (She's a huge gamer)
2: Splitting the cost 3 ways with my other roommates and getting her one of those sweet new Evo 4g Sprint Phones (I originally considered one of the AT T phones but 4g is getting activated in Minneapolis soon, additionally she already has a AT T go phone is looking to trying other phone services. Anyone have any idea on the reliability and battery life of the Verizon Droid X?)
3. Season 4 of How I Met Your Mother
4. We all need a new Wireless Router for the apartment and upgraded internet, but that's a pretty impersonal gift.
5. Pay for the data recovery of a ruined hard drive she has back in Denver that has a ton of sentimental photo's that she's doesn't have backups for.

Any ideas dudes?

Best Quote Ever
Until a man is twenty-five, he still thinks, every so often, that under the right circumstances he could be the baddest motherfucker in the world. If I moved to a martial-arts monastery in China and studied real hard for ten years. If my family was wiped out by Colombian drug dealers and I swore myself to revenge. If I got a fatal disease, had one year to live, and devoted it to wiping out street crime. If I just dropped out and devoted my life to being bad.
