Quite easily the smartest thing I have ever thought of…
Tired of carrying around a wallet AND your keys? I sure was…until one
day I had the brilliant idea of putting a house key in my wallet! Now, If
I need to drive I grab my “car keys” and for the rest of the time I just have my
wallet with a key in it.
I amaze myself sometimes. At this rate I estimate I’ll have world hunger
solved by next March….

September 20th, 2003
It was a sad day…. The Last
E-Plant ever…and it wasn’t even an E-Plant! If you don’t know what
E-Plant was…you suck…. Every Year, for the last 18 years The Engineers have
kidnapped the Agro president, kept him/her drunk for 2 days straight and then
strapped them to a giant E. Hundreds of Engineers paint then selves red,
and hundreds of Agros paint them selves blue and then all of the Engineers lock
arms and hold around the E while the Agros try to get their Presedent down from
it. For 15 minutes it is (was) the most amazing spectacle to watch as Red people
and Blue people push each other and try to break their way to the E.
By the end everyone is purple and then that night is HELL DANCE (which
would be tonight for me!) and everyone gets drunk. It is (was) the biggest
event on campus that brings everyone together and really makes all of the
Engineers and Agros feel like they belong to something.
Today was a “funeral” for E-Plant. There were 3 speeches, all the Engineers
were painted black instead of red, and then we carried the giant E back to the
Engineering building to cut it up
A lot of people (including very much me) were/ARE pissed off that this 18
year tradition has been forced to end due to “liability risks” but next year a
new tradition will start, and just like E-Plant, it will bring us all together!

Ack! I’ve missed the last two shows! BUT!
You know We’re living in the Future when we can make

Ryan’s thought of the day:
Fatigue is Plaque spelled wrong…..
September 17th, 2003
Whew! So the sign only cost $170 with tax, BUT it turned out to be half
the size of the original sign we broke so the owner kept $60 which was fair
because he paid over $200 for the old one. So $230/4= 60 bucks each…. not bad
for a night of theft and scavenging!
In other news,
Walter the Farting Dog is #1 on the
NYTimes best selling children’s books! That is so cool!
September 16th, 2003
So tonight was the Engineering Scavenger hunt. I layed down $500 collateral
to “borrow” the neon sign from Extreme Pita and …. when we went to plug in the
neon sign…. it was broken! Somehow, somewhere, sometime in the evening
we accidentally broke the P in OPEN and so then we had to go back to Extreme
Pita and talk to the Manager. He wasn’t impressed. The Girl who was working
almost got fired too which certainly wasn’t cool either. Tomorrow I’m going to
Costco to buy a new sign for $350…. *tears*
On the bright side we won! TWO YEARS IN A ROW
September 13th, 2003`
So I am typing this drunk on my fancy dancy new ìwireless
keyboardî that I got for $19 but that is no matter.
What does matter is that I am updating! The question to
that however would be ìwhy am I updating?î
A week ago I had nothing to update with. Untill a couple
days go it was just pictures of bands and thatís it. I wasnít pissed off at
anythingÖ I didnít have any opinionsÖ. Nor could I think of any ìcontentî for my
website aside from just the pictures of shows which I was even avoiding by just
putting up the ìjumblesî of pics.
Why in the last few weeks was I not ìrantingî as I did such
so much at the beginning of the summer? Well the answer for that would be, as
with the downfall of any man, ìa girlî
Yes she made me happy and with that came the demise of any
annoyed, disappointed, ranted thought that may of otherwise been typed out and
read by you.
Itís like nothing pissed me off anymore. I couldnít think
of one thing to write about. Nothing made me ìthinkî. It was just all about
ìherî. Of course none of this would come to me as a surprise, as this has
happened to me time and time again. Women seem to have that effect on men. (Eg,
Noticed Nolto hasnít updated in FOREVER! He has a girlfriend now)
Girls always change guys. They abandon all of the things
they hold dear (hobbies, ìguy friendsî, partying, sports, etc) just for ìherî
like she has some kind of mind control spell on you.
Not that this is a bad thing. Itís just the way it always
works. Needless to say by what I am writing now that there no longer is ìthis
girlî anymore for punkoryan and by the next day I already had thought of 5 rants
to write about. When I say ìIím backî I mean more than I am home. I mean I am
back to the way I was a couple months ago, and I will be that way again until
someone else comes along, and then Iíll forget about everything else in my life
again, just as any guy does, and always willÖ.

“You can pay me back”
I am going to Mexico for Spring Break in February and I need to have $1600 saved
I was thinking about all of the money owed to me from the times I said “oh you
can just pay me later” and then I started adding all of the I.O.U.’s together…
its over a thousand bucks!
In one way I could be mad for being so “nice” all the time and having all this
money owed to me, but another way of thinking of it is that in the last year I
have almost saved enough for a trip to Mexico by simply telling people they can
pay me back later…
Wow! Saving money is easy!
September 11th, 2003
I wrote something about how today is…well today…but I’m sure you’ll be
hearing enough about it in the news, tv, radio so I’ll just say. May they all
rest in peace.
So remember back in early august when I entered in the EXhibition photo
contest? Well I got an honorable mention for one of my pictures of Calgary
AND I also won the Phase II Photo award too (a $50 gift certificate!) The cool thing though is that I took the
picture when we were stopped at a red light! I just rolled down the window,
snapped, and it turned out perfect! You never know….
September 10th, 2003
No this isn’t a ticket giv’a'way… my friends and I are going to AFI in
Saskatoon and Regina! (and if all goes well I will have a photo pass for both
In the event you are like “i’m an idiot and didn’t know AFI was coming”….
AFI is coming…. you should go to
ALSO if you think “why isn’t Ryan putting much effort into his site lately”
well lets just say I’ve been enjoying a vacation away from consistently updating
my site. However on the downside I have fallen behind on many things related to
it… for one:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY punkoryan.com !!! I forgot to
mention that my site is now 1 year old and I’ve lost count of how many bands are
on here but its around 120 me thinks!
In other news… there is sooo much news…. I’m back, lets just say that!
I also spent FOREVER editing and thumb nailing 306FEST! SOOOOOO check
out the BANDS section and see
all of the pictures again for the first time of
Away from Here ,
Best kept Secret,
Samual the Black Shaman,
Shackleford, Sparky, The Pinch, Tombstone Diaries, Dirtbred,

#2 Commerce BBQ on Monday. 4000 people go every year and
its great (19+) buy tickets in the commerce table.
