Hello From Punta Cana

Good day all. Mia and I are in the Dominican Republic. Normally, on a honeymoon, I doubt one would blog. However, seeing as how I love you all, I´m taking a break from the love-making to blog. Not really. I needed to check something on the internet and you can only purchase internet usage in 1/2 hour increments. Thus, now that I have finished my business (setting up a deep sea Marling-fishing expedition), Mia and I have 20 internet minutes to kill.

Accordingly, I will tell you about Punta Cana. First, the keyboard is exceedingly difficult to use. Second only, I´d say, to Iceland. Second, it is hot as balls. Something like 90 degrees but 354% humidity. This is okay, because the pool here is over 400 meters. More of a lagoon, really. Also there is an ocean, or a sea, I´m not sure. I think the sea, but don´t hold me to that. Third, I am somewhat drunk. Seeing as how this is all inclusive, beer and liquor being included, one is compelled to indulge in said indulgences. Fourth, I´m sick of sitting here trying to use up internet time. Instead, I´ll write a limerick:

There once was a man from Punta Cana,
who really enjoyed Punta Cana.
He went to the beach,
And really enjoyed the beach,
And afterward said, "I like Punta Cana."

That´s for you PostiveMode. Seacrest out.

P.S. From the new Mrs. Negativemode: Matt really cannot go a day without posting...even somewhat shitfaced.
P.P.S. I really can go a day without posting, as you all well know. As I said before, we have 20 minutes to kill.

P.P.P.S. We are going to the bar (says Mrs. NegativeMode). Later suckers.

Sorry Ladies, NegativeMode is Spoken For

Well, I'm married now. I'd love to post pictures of the wife (wife!) and I, but I don't have any right now. Instead, I'll post a picture of PositiveMode and I looking quite dapper.

Also, I have to apoligize, but I won't be posting again until next week, as I'm headed to the Dominican Republic for my honeymoon. I'll leave you with this link to the Princeton Review's top party schools for 2007.

Hu Flung Pu

For some reason I haven't been able to blog from my primary computer, hence, the lack up updates. I'm sorry. I can only imagine the disappointment you must feel when you open NegativeMode only to see the same post for days on end. Unfortunately, due to my pending nuptials, I haven't had any time to be creative and think of things to post. Really all I have time to do is think about thing I have to get ready or pick up or pay for. Regardless, here's a true story, from Reuters to amuse you:

BERLIN (Reuters) - Thieves in Germany stole 7,500 euros ($9,554) from a man by throwing feces at him from behind and then pick-pocketing him while they pretended to help clean up the mess, authorities said Monday.

After withdrawing 8,000 euros from a bank for a holiday the man was struck in the back of the neck by what he described as human feces, police in the central town of Giessen said.

"Immediately afterwards two large women came up to him from behind and claimed they had seen someone excreting down onto the street from above," police said in a statement.

The two women then began briskly wiping the filth from the man's clothing with paper towels they had with them. They were soon joined by a third man, who also came bearing paper towels.

Only when the man went to take his foul-smelling trousers to cleaners did he notice that 7,500 euros had been taken from his back pocket by one of the would-be helpers, police said.

Now that, my friends, is a quality robbery. And, if you're still bored, try this. The highest I've gotten is 20. Simple, but strangely addicting (I guess anything is when you're trying to kill time).

Doo Doo Pie

This is one of my favorite skits from SNL. I've never been able to find it on the web before today, so I thought I'd share it with you. Not only is it funny, but it's great to compare Britney from that skit (May 13, 2005) with Britney from today.

This is the trailer for the new Borat movie due out this fall (November 3, 2006). I truly can't wait.

The Flava of Love

Ok, disregard the post immediately below this one. I've found a show on TV that is even better than So You Think You Can Dance (although I'm still a big fan). While I said that SYTYCD is my favorite show of the summer, the new show might be my favorite show of all time. What show am I talking about? The Flava of Love of course (new shows 10pm Sundays on VH1). In a nut shell, the show is Flava Flav of Public Enemy fame dating various women who live in his house with him in a "the Bachelor" type format. Truly riviting television. You really gotta watch it to believe it. Last night was the premere of the second season (you can watch the entire first season here). We have truly reached the pinnacle of television with Flava of Love. I just can't see it getting any better. . . .

I'll admit it, my favorite show of the summer, by far, is So You Think You Can Dance. It's awesome and I love it. I don't care what you say about me, it rocks. I think I should have becomce a professional hip-hop dancer. There's still time. . . .

Also, I just smelled my pants again (I still haven't worn them (it's been way too hot)) and they still smell really nice. Maybe I'll get to wear them this weekend or something.

Stay cool.

Montreal Follow-Up

Well, Montreal, save the USAir debacle (get this, my flight home was also cancelled because they couldn't start the plane (seriously) and I was stuck in Montreal overnight and missed work. As I said before USAir is horrendous (customer service in particular)), was excellent. Very beautiful city, fun time, and great weather. The international fireworks competition finale happened to be on Saturday night, which was really amazing. I'll post some pictures of the trip this evening. That is all.
