Cougar Chaos

Last the Insomniac part of me took over, my brain was way too active to fall asleep. After two hours of laying in my bed thinking about everything I surrendered and went downstairs to the TV and watched a couple psych episodes before falling asleep. While laying in my bed i was thinking about the slightly depressing fact that i know live with my parents again. Don't get me wrong, they are great people and i love them; but lets face it life is just more fun when you aren't living with people that go to bed at 9:00. anyway I thought about all of the fun i have with my five previous roommates. I will probably never have the opportunity to live with five people with such, shall we say, personality. I think it is appropriate to write down some of our most epic moments. The First epic moment that comes to mind is the night we got our new couch. Our dorm room, came furnished with six hard table chairs that look as if they should have been thrown out years ago, and one small couch i believe is called a 'love seat'. Why the university thinks it appropriate to have a love seat in a dorm with six male freshman in college is beyond me, but never the less that's what they gave us. After some quick mathematical thinking, we realized that we had two soft seats in front of the TV, and six boys that wanted to sit in them. you may see what i am saying and think that only two people could fit on the soft seats! However you would be mistaken, it was more that possible to get four if not more people on that couch. well either way we wanted another couch, there was of course couches in the lobby, and one night at about 2:00 A.M. we decided that we should just move a couch from the lobby into our apartment! this was clearly a genius idea, and we did it. so problem solved right! wrong, a few weeks later we had a cleaning check and our RA told us that we had to return the couch to the lobby. So we did, begrudgingly yes, but it got done. We that had the same problem that we started out with. So Evan, Nate and I decided to go to D.I. to see if they have any couches we can but for cheep. well we get there and find a very ugly and yet oddly comfortable couch for 35$. we were of course careful to "eye ball" the the size of the door, and we were confident it would fit, and so we bought it. now all we need to do is get it home. now Nate has a car which is very convenient. however this car is what i believe to be a 1998 Chevrolet Prizm. which if you have ever seen one, is not exactly the optimum car for couch transportation. so being three in shape college boys, we decided that we can just carry the couch home which, after looking up the distance on map quest is about two mile! well needless to say this was an epic night. we got the couch all the back, with only the help of our Family home evening sisters for the last 100 ft or so. that couch served us very well, and at the end of the year we carried it back to a D.I. trailer

Another epic moment actually happened almost every Sunday for 8 months. the first Sunday of the month we happen to have some packs of Jello. and we decided to make and eat this tasty treat. Well seeing as all six of us have a considerable amount of "personality", the act of Jello eating turned from just a tasty treat to a hilarious moment in the life of all of us. we continued this moment for 8 months, and we made some extremely tasty treats.

There are many more epic moments, but i think that there are too many to write them all down. If you really want to hear a few more, than look up the Blog Cougar Chaos and there are several more stories of my roommates.
