Go ahead and read the story about my swamp treck a couple weeks ago, and as you read, keep in mind that Jimmy wrote it.
I hope y'all have a good weekend! Easterners: STAY WARM!!!!
Also, as you know, Jimmy has a great talent for writing rather strange stories. If you have not read his reflections on square bagels and toilet paper yet, I highly recommend that you do. I was going to write my own little boring story about this trip, but I decided to use Jimmy's more interesting one instead. I will need to edit some parts out and censor some stuff, as Jimmy has some....ummmm....inappropriate comments in his original post. I like to keep things clean here on the Minorcan Factor.
And it was good.
After traveling non-stop at a good speed for 3 days, we decided to travel across the "bridge-log thingy of no return" for absolutely no particular reason. But Phil decided to try something really stupid (hand me my camera), and he ended up losing the camera off the "bridge-log thingy of no return". So me and Phil decided to have a duel to the death.
Me and Phil, having a duel to the death.
Needless to say, I won.
Me, proclaiming my ultimate victory and Phillip's ultimate demise.
So we continued on our merry way, and 27 days later, we ended up at the ancient and mystical landmark that has been referred to as *censored* (NOTE: The name of this place is not really that bad, but it could be considered offensive and derogatory by some, so I have taken the high road on this one)
HurricaneTeen at *censored*. That's me planning his ultimate demise in the background.
Me, revelling in HurricaneTeen's ultimate demise, which can be credited to me.
Phillip, coming back to life (not at all uncommon).
At this point, I decided that this story really isn't going anywhere. So I'm going to put in some cool elevator music and a montage to pass the time. Since this whole writing thing kind of hinders my ability to do so, put on your own elevator music and imagine a montage of me, Phil, HurricaneTeen, and Ben running through a forest.
He almost died. ***TRIVIA*** -------> That's not my foot. (HurricaneTeen note: It's mine :-D I put it there for perspective, but it is still kind of hard to see the 5-inch-deep hole.)
This is the huge cypress tree the HurricaneTeen is always talking about.
HurricaneTeen made friends with Phill's family. (Note: That's an inside joke.)
Ben, going on an angry rampage and destroying the forest in a blind fury.
We finally destroyed the ring. Because we were getting kind of tired and wanted to go home.
Then Phil and I got into a fight about whether it should be legal to put stem cells in your breakfast cereal or not (Phil likes to eat them raw for some reason), so we had another duel to the death.
Me and Phil dueling to the death (again).
Ugh... this story sucks.
Long story short, we destroyed the ring of power and then went to Burger King.
Phil, at Burger King. I don't really know if he was hungry or if he was contemplating the best way to get on the slide on the playground.
So uhh... the ring was destroyed... our stomachs were filled... Middle Earth was safe from the clutches of Sauron (again)... and... uhhh...
There really is no point to this story.
Moral: Don't argue with Jimmy, because he always wins duels to the death.
Cameras + swamp water = unhappy?

I need to get ready for school. It's funny how I get up before 6:00 every morning and still sometimes end up rushing to get ready to leave the house at 7:40 to be at school by 8:30.
By the way, I still need to show ya'll that post about our recent swamp adventure. I'll post that later :-D
Mr. Pacetti giving me yet another castnet knitting lesson at his house last the Friday before last. He is working on my 6-foot mullet net here, using tools that I carved by hand (very badly, I might add) this past summer.
Currently I am making a 6-foot Mullet net with 1-inch mesh to catch those delicious fish that my family has enjoyed for so long. I will post later with pictures of me working this net down, and with a better description of how and why I do it.
HAVE A DIXIE DAY!!

- Fried Shrimp. There is nothing like a nice pile of fresh-caught shrimp breaded and fried up to perfection. Mixing the sauce with mayonaisse makes a perfect seafood dip.
- Fried Mullet or Catfish. Use the same mixing technique described above.
- Hamburgers. My favorite burger: Fresh beef (venison will do, too), ketchup, mayonaisse, barbecue sauce, Datil pepper sauce, tomato, lettuce, onion, and cheese. Messy, but the most delicious burger I have ever had.
- Okra. Okra is delicious dipped in the Datil/mayonaisse mix or just plain Datil sauce.
- Fried Chicken.
- Cold or Allergy Remedy. (I guess this isn't really the sauce, but I thought I would share it anyway.) Finely chop up a Datil pepper and spread it on a piece of bread. Eat it, and it will clear up any sinus congestion that you may have. I'm not joking with this one. I have heard stories of a Minorcan doctor that used to prescribe this for a number of ailments...I don't doubt at all that it worked.
