Gonna spend tonight making some grapling hooks and a gun to shoot em so I can leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Will spend time thinking up my name.

I've decided to become a crazy, homeless person. But first, I must find ideal crazy, homeless person habitat.

This is kind of funny because the year I spent in college getting my master's degree (about two years ago now), the beginning of that program was a full summer worth of courses and I didn't have a dorm in this area until fall. I lived about an hour or so away from the college, so traveling back and forth sucked.

So a few weeks in I actually decided to see if I could handle a pseudo-homeless lifestyle. I say psuedo because it was purely by choice and I know that when you do something like that by choice it isn't ACTUAL homelessness.

But still, I had an absolute BLAST living like a homeless bum. I started thinking of the little city in terms of where my rooms were. I had a place to go that I considered my living room (a little coffee shop hooked to an all night market)...I considered restaurants my "kitchen." I took on a one month free trial at a couple of local gyms and considered that to be my bathroom (where I would shower and even get a little exercise as an excuse to shower :p). I had something for just about everything I could think of except a decent place to sleep. I carried a sleeping bag and a tent in my car (along with most of the clothes I knew I would wear in a given week) as well as a cooler for whatever drinks I had. Most nights I just found a lot and slept in my car. Slept in the Walmart lot many times and outside of a few hotels.

On the weekends I would go back to my parents' house to recharge, wash my clothes, etc. And of course I told them that I was staying with a friend so they wouldn't worry about me.

It was such a simple life, and it was a dirt cheap way to live. I had enough money to go to the movies on lots of nights (to get my "tv" fix) and I spent a lot of time outside walking around and enjoying the city from a different perspective (when I say "city" I mean more of a small city...smallish town...not a one horse town,but not with giant skyscrapers either...a spread out kind of place that went on for miles in either direction).

It really made me think of the minimalist lifestyle and just how much junk we have weighing us down. During that time I had what I could cart around in my car and nothing but the great outdoors and local places to chill. Got well known at the coffee shop by the staff. I actually kind of miss that time. Not that I am living like a king now, but I would love to do a repeat of that lifestyle at some point. It actually taught me that it's possible to go on vacation without needing a hotel really. If I ever do a full on out west road trip, I'll probably spend many days living just like I did then...right out of my vehicle...and save a ton of money to boot.

Gonna spend some time thinking about how I can destroy the world. Nothing personal, you understand. It's all for the lulz.

THERE! ARE! FOUR! BEERS!

Which brings me to the Cardassians. In the realm of supervillainy, they were monumentally stupid. If you want to convince Picard - anyone, really - that 4=5 ... start with beer. After enough of them (or maybe a mind control space slug with an ear fetish), he'll tell you whatever the fuck you want him to.

*Note to supervillain self: Learn from Cardassian mistakes.*
*Second note to supervillain self: Look for mind control pace slugs with ear fetishes.*

Vipes, that what I love so much about camping. It's so simple now that the kids are grown. When they were little, it was ridiculous, but now, it's tents, sleeping bags, coolers, fishing poles, flashlights, and lamps. Although, I must admit it can get pretty expensive because I like to buy the food the same day so I dont' have to deal too much with ice, etc. and I also buy the firewood because I hate looking for it. But it's still simple!

And I would like to be a superhero just so I can stand around like Wonder Woman with the cool cape blowing in the wind, hands on hips.
What?

Well, shit. I've only just realized what I need to do to embrace the true supervillain spirit ...
