When I was in fifth grade I started writing these books called "The Adventures of Rover Robot". Rover Robot was this character I created who was from Uranus. He came to Earth on his spaceship which crash landed. It was inspired by "E.T.", "Batteries Not Included" and "Short Circuit". I was really into science fiction as a kid.

Throughout the series other characters were introduced such as "Redrina Robot", Rover's sister as well as a robot pet dog. I think that Austin and my brother and my cousins all made appearances in the books as did "Johnny 5" from the Short Circuit movie.

Rover Robot was what really got me into writing. The stories would usually be half a page of writing and an illustration at the bottom. This format continued on through "The End of the World" book series.

nyThe first day we got Shemp was quite the memorable moment. We found an ad in the Oakland Press about puppies for only 35$. This was just after we lost Whiskey so I didn't think it'd be such an easy transistion. Anyway, we pull up to this house in Pontiac right by Northern High School. I now believe that the house was some sort of opium den or possibly(to avoid any sterotype) a crack house. This might explain many of our dog's actions. In the house there were many puppies but only two that were running around and playing with each other. We got lucky and picked Shemp. On the way home in the future Tijuana Taxi, Shemp pooped. It was love at first sight for the Stalker family. That night Noel and I both wanted to sleep with Shemp. So what ended up happening was the last time Noel and I shared a bed together and the last time Shemp slept with anyone else besides my parents. Shemp still remains a good dog and poops in more places than the car.

Memory: Franko De Muerto

I remember that there was always this table full of latino gangsters in the cafeteria. For some reason, my friend Todd didn't get along with one of them. His name was Franko and we called him "Franko De Muerto" which is something like "Franko of death".

His name evolved. It became "Franko De Muerto Espierto" which totally doesn't make sense but it rhymed. I think it means Franko of Death Hope. Then it became "Franko De Muerto De Espierto Vash" or something. I think we thought that it meant "Franko of Death of Hope Cow".

Anyway, I remember that there was once a confrontation. I don't know if we threw food or what but they approached Todd and our preppy table and then followed Todd out into the commons area and surrounded him. Nothing happened though - maybe the bell rang - I can't remember clearly.

I remember playing "Zombie Tag" with my brother, my cousins Dan (dan10878) and Dave ( TheMemoryCrawler) and my childhood friends John and Derek Conrad. It was kind of a mix between"tag" and "hide-and-go-seek". Zombie Tag could only be played at night. One person was "it" at first. Everyone else hid. The person who was it was only allowed to walk because Zombies can't run. (But really they only had to walk when no one was looking). Being "it" really sucked in Zombie Tag since it was dark and everyone else was hiding in a large forest and you could only walk. The people who were hiding were allowed to move around too. They could yell out to the others to notify them that the Zombie was coming.

However, if a Zombie was able to sneak up and "tag" someone, then there were two Zombies. We would play this way until there was only one person left and he/she was the winner. It was a lot easier to catch people when there was more than one Zombie.

I loved those nights, hiding behind a tree . . . Read More..

I remember the age of 5. That was my first day. That is to say, the day that I turned 5 was when I woke up and realized the world. I didn't know who, where, what or when I was, but I did know that I liked chocolate cake. Chocolate cake and funny hats was where it all began.
