    on this day on the busblog in history: 9/26 

    free chorizo2001: today i hate the bus. today i want to get a car. today i want to flush out everything bad in my life. i want to flush everything that isnt perfect out of my life. i want to earn twice as much, i want to wear half as less. i want to grow my hair twice as big and dye it red or just bleach it. im not happy. i was late to work.

    2004: there was a time when when people talked about the xbi they talked about guys without vests on, without nightvision, and without fear. guys so tough they wrote their phone numbers on the ass cheeks of the worst guys they caught, so when the cops found them hogtied and defeated they would know who to thank.

    2005: so the little bird, the baby bird, so tiny it had yet become blue did what any little bird would, he walked into the forrest

    he reverse esped her to see if he could.

    let me show you my bra.

    nothing in there is true.

    stop trying to do whatever youre doing. stop trying to be in control. control is an illusion. this path isnt yours because your path is a finale and there is a long way left for you to do for us so knock it off.

    and she injected the venom and it felt cold after a minute and then warm and then shocking.

    2008: the edison is so popular on weekend nights that they wont let you in if you dont have a collar on your shirt or if you have jeans (if youre a dude), or if your not super hot (if youre a babe). ok that last part might not be 100% true but it sure seems like it.

    2009: the day katie couric destroyed glenn beck’s career

    sound of music2010: went to the Sound of Music singalong with the truest

    2011: first lets talk about the crazy ass stuff i have seen at McDonalds here in Quebec.

    the beheaded Ronald McDonalds asking for money was a petite troubling but it didnt stop me from eating francais fries

    that 80 percent of his teammates out here in LA were taking illegal performance enhancing drugs. this from a man who himself admitted to taking illegal substances in order to compete.

    human growth hormones of course are part of the blogosphere what with repetitive strain injuries, carpal tunnel, and writers block, it isnt easy to maintain a prolific and profitable life as a blogger.

    thus drugs are tempting.

    2013: but it is hard to look at a kickass swimming pool

    or a shiny car with a Star Wars dashboard

    or a puppy smoking a cigar with a kitten being dealt blackjack by a baby mule with a garter around his bicep

    and not say, why yes, I want that.

    2014: two things: why is it that our electrical grid is so sensitive that entire states can be wiped out due to human error?

    and how come the second busiest airport in america can be crippled because of one stinking fire?
