me, on Drew's facebook: First the truck now the phone Kate is hijacking everything!

friend: Good! Thats how relationships should be. The women drugs the man and takes all of his belongings. Then he chases her down the streets of paris with a handgun and- oh wait I'm describing the plot of an action movie. Never mind.

Drew: I'm wanting to stay at the apartment, but I choose not to out of fear of Ani coming home in disgrace and surprising me whilst Naked.

There are many wins to this comment, but I'm thinking the capitalization of naked takes the cake.

GUNS :D

I went to the gun show yesterday with D and another friend who lives in my apartment building. I picked up a totally-not-a-weapon-really-there's-even-a-piece-of-paper-that-says-it's-not-a-weapon knife and 600 rounds of ammunition (which sounds like a lot, but isn't) for my 10/22 LR...which, naturally, is in Denver. The rounds I got are copper coated...to suit the demands of a range by my parents' house. Oh, yeah, and I have no way of getting the gun here or the rounds there.

THE ONLY SOLUTION IS TO BUY ANOTHER GUN.

If I ever have money again, that is.

Anyway, I was thinking that my current 10/22 is boring. I actually don't like brown/wooden guns, preferring the much more evil black. At the gun show yesterday, I saw stocks with awesome colors, and I decided I wanted.

But (a) they are about 1.5 times the price of the gun itself, (b) the gun remains in Denver and I remain here (or Seoul, or Beijing), and (c) most of the pretty stocks seem to be discontinued.

So anyway, I was thinking I could find a large pile of cash somewhere, and then I could build my own 10/22 from scratch. It would be awesome, in that it would probably end up looking like this, because guess what there are also colored barrels out there, too! Actually, the point of a Ruger 10/22 is that you take it apart and build another one. I could, conceivably, go home, take the action out of my gun, and bring it back here.

It's expensive. I'd need a stock, barrel, scope, mount, sling, and tools. And I, uh, kinda need to buy a scope for the one I have here before it's usable...And probably a sling...And then there's ammo...And...and...and...

I think that guns are just a conspiracy to keep people from saving money.
