Stand at your own wake is no barrier to the party: The body of Angel Pantoja Medina, left, stands leaning against a wall during his wake in his mother's home in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The last wish of Medina, 24, was to be standing at his own wake. He was embalmed for the occasion.

PREGOREXIA. Women who are obsessed with staying thin while incubating their spawn. I HATE THIS WORD, IT JUST SOUNDS STUPID.

I bet being pregnant sucks so fucking hard core. But you know what makes up for all the barfing, dilating of vaginas, stretching, ripping of skin and morphing of your never-to-be-the-same body? You get to eat a lot of food. That really has to be the only enticing thing to me about busting one out. All the ice cream, spicy chicken wings, nachos, and spaghetti I can eat.

Anyone dumb enough to starve themselves while pregnant does not deserve to procreate. THAT is what's wrong with America. Pregorexics.

A coworker's niece is working as my "intern." Her name is Marieme, she is 17 and is trying to strengthen her English. Poor thing gets to do boring tasks but we've spent most of the time goofing off and discussing the differences between our cultures.

She taught me the word "beauf" which means dumbass or douche bag. It's for anyone that isn't with it or kind of backward. Her examples- Texas, rednecks or Johnny Halliday, a French singer, which she says is "King of the beauf"-

So we spent an afternoon looking at different people and deciding if they were "beauf." I thought David Hasselhoff, and she agreed.

She taught me the word "branche" (with accent over the e), which I'm a little shaky on, but basically it's like hipsters, but not the followers, the leaders. People who are cool but aren't following trends. She said Daft Punk is an example of that.

Another thing she showed me were tectonic dancers on YouTube. Apparently these guys battle each other. Here's an example-

Go here to see Tectonic dude

We also spent time looking at Sarkozy's wife, Carla Bruni, and checking out her music and lyrics. She has one song that translates to "You are my drug" and the lyrics say "you are more addictive than Columbian coke or Afghan heroin." We concluded she's the hottest President's wife in the world.

Marieme tried Root Beer for the first time, didn't like it. Same with cinnamon gum.

She told me you have to pay to be part of a political party in France. You can vote along party lines, but you must pay 20 Euro per year and then attend a meeting in your city. Also, their conservative party, the UMP, color is blue and the liberal party, the socialist party, is red. CRAZY!

I may learn more, we'll see.

No Blogs in July

I did not blog in July, on purpose, to raise awareness about Procrastination.

Procrastination is becoming a major epidemic. With constant access to the internet and way too many entertainment outlets, even the most disciplined individual can go on a procrastination stupor.

Do your part. Get shit done now.
