Currently listening to: “Ocean” by Ten Shekel Shirt

Hello, all! I’m back in America! I guess the first order of business is to reset my circadian clock. It’s 7:55 AM here in central time, but 8:55 PM in Kuala Lumpur. I’m doing my best to trick myself into thinking it’s morning, which it is. I had a tough time adding up whether I should try to sleep my way into central time or stay up as long as possible. I decided to stay up by watching some movies (“V For Vendetta” is pretty good). I also tried to make a list of all the gifts I got and who gave them to me. Much harder than I thought it’d be. Next I tried to a little sketching. It was going good for a while, but then I dropped Loraine’s pencil during a bit of turbulence. I don’t like doing ink drawings as much. It’s much harder to shade.

I’ll have more reports from Malaysia (including pictures) when I’m not so jet-lagged.

My mom has informed me that they’re having some trouble getting the Garth Brooks thing worked out. I’m not sure if he’s trying to cancel or what. More updates as I get ’em.

I’m resolving to put more substance into my posts, whether it be links to cool stuff, photoshop projects, or other good stuff. I have this feeling that my site has become more of a simple online journal. Granted, that’s how it started, but I think there was a golden age of my blog where I would post some pretty cool stuff. So here’s the beginning of a new era for Eric Online.

You may remember us talking about “Meredith Martin: Time Traveler,” Meredith’s hypothetical TV show where she travels through time to learn about history. Well, here’s the main title screen, perfectly sized for your desktop background!

And here’s the lyrics to the theme song, written by our own Brad:

When no one knows what histroy tells
When evil guys their lies try to sell
There is a girl with a secret machine
Who travels to places we’ve never been

It’s Meredith Martin: Time Traveler!
With her the past is never a bore.
Meredith Martin: Time Traveler!
She’ll find the truth, that’s for sure.

Professor McGraw-Hill locked it away
She keeps it hidden, but in a day
she will adventure to times long ago
And all the great happ’nings of time she will show.

It’s Meredith Martin: Time Traveler!
With her the past is never a bore.
Meredith Martin: Time Traveler!
She’ll find the truth, that’s for sure.
She’ll find the truth, that’s for sure!

Ah-ha ha ha ha!!! That’s hilarious, yet so fitting. So, speaking of time travel . . . I just happened to look at my blog today and I said to myself, “Self, you should look at your first post . . . ever.” So, I did . . . and lo and behold there’s like this message from you . . . that I don’t recall seeing before. But it’s like over a year old. Anyway, you told me to leave ya a comment if I ever found it. So, here it is. Hmmm.
