Hey! I thought I was doing a pretty good job of working on the entertainment. Had the ping pong table set up and everything.

It's a trial and error approach.

Is that sarcasm to hide your jealousy?

I got high marks in woodwork class actually.


my dad's a builder, he would have killed me if I hadn't.

Interesting thing that happened to me in the past year?

The first thing that comes to mind might be a little traumatic, so I'll leave it out. I was on TV in May. My band got to perform in a theater as the opening act for the Haygoods. (Yeah, never heard of them before then either) It was up in Branson, Missouri. Pretty cool, and I'll be on TV next Tuesday (local channels) competing in a Robotics competition. I didn't build the robot, but was the engineer for the catapault.

Power of the Triangle! (Illuminati is its nickname)



(Just add a lot more duct tape to that)

That's hopefully my next project. That, or a bigger catapult.

my dad's a builder, he would have killed me if I hadn't.

I'm a redneck. It's in our blood.

I'm literally descended from rednecks.     Tennessee to be exact, I spent most of my early life in the South.

I spent most of my teens absolutely destroying any hint of a drawl to my voice.

Deep South?

And I was wondering, Lor. If I moved up to Scotland, would I lose my drawl quickly? Say a year or so?

Out of the states that are referred to as "Dixie", the only one I didn't live in or have family in was Texas and Arkansas.

No, no you would not. You'd probably end up with some weird hybrid thing going on. I'm going to have to make a video so you people who has not met me yet (lucky buggers) can hear what a mess my accent is.
