Well, I'm reminded of one instance last year camping with Brit and Sarah, when I wanted to explore an abandoned house on the side of the road in the middle of no where but it wasn't a good idea. So I was driving past these two buildings - across the street from each other - then decided to turn around and check them out.
Here we have a barn thing. Falling apart, apparently abandoned, it was in the middle of no-where Southern Ohio, down the road from a cement/sand plant kinda place.
The inside was pretty basic what I expect out of an old abandoned barn. After this exploration happened, I went driving around Medina county with Amanda -- and she noted that "every barn looks abandoned, most of them aren't." It smelled like a chicken coop, though I ran into no animals. And note the giant tires.
Across the street is this old house, which apparently had a fire based on some scorch marks left on its frame. The floor (and walls) of the building have clearly been destructed.
Yeah, didn't want to go down into this cause I was wearing my nice "Laser Lemon" shirt and didn't want to get it dirty, or fall. Note the fireplace.
Quotes of the General Time period:
"I've got the urge... to merge!" - Amanda, while practicing driving. One of my summer goals has been to get her her license. Speaking of, David got his temps the other day.
Song of the Day: In other news, Amanda gave me 3 CD's to honor the fact she bought 100 for 15$ and that I now have a car I must fill with music. The "Stuff is Messed Up" song is off of one of them. Another song I heard for the first time that I liked off one of them is "Smile" by Lily Allen.
"At first when I see you cry, it make me smi-i-i-ile...Song of the Other Day: "Hot n Cold" by Katy Perry -- in SIMlish! That's right, the non-senseical language used by the Sims. The Sims people have actually gotten several real performers to redo hits in Simlish - including the Black Eyed Peas. Me and Brittany have found the Simlish version hilarious, I love it! I even went on an internet scanvenger hunt to find what the lyrics are.At first, I found nothing :( but then I found someone who put what they thought the lyrics were to video -- but unfortunatly they were German, so the lyrics were all with weird accents. Then I found the Official Katy Perry Forums. That included a link to her "vidmeo" (I think a video form of Twitter) which included a video of her showing the lyrics SIMS sent her to the camera! Also a brief rant about annoying people calling her a lesbian and her appearance on Young and the Restless. Producing the screen cap above, from which my eagle-Star Trek eyes were able to discern the lyrics as the follwing:
At worst, I feel bad for a while, but then I just smi-i-i-ile..."
