Look at the address bar in your web browser. Does it still say www.owlnet.rice.edu/~ruy? Well, it might be working now but soon the evil goons from Rice University (the very same ones who took away our key to the kitchen and constructed vile, putrid, parking gates) will take away my owlnet webspace. In case you haven't heard the news (what, have you been living under a rock these past few months??!! hahahahah, j/k i'm sorry please don't leave) the new address of my website will be http://ruy2003.tripod.com . If your web browser already has that address in then good--you don't have to do anything. Just sit back, spin in your chair, and keep clicking the REFRESH button over and over like a madman, because one day I'll update this site and it'll be totally new (not like last time where I just changed the background from black to white). Keep in touch and stay tuned!

God bless,

BEEF 102: In the Office

so it's been almost 4 weeks of working now, and I still don't know how to fix the copy machine. Why does it say paperjam when there is no paperjam?? One of these days I'm gonna kick this piece of crap out the window.

i've been working for three days at reliant now... but don't ask me to hook you up with extra power or anything because i'm in no position to be asking favors. I haven't even seen my boss yet.. i think it's sad that i have to sleep at around 10:30pm now just to wake up early. I feel like i'm in middle school again.

anyway, my owlnet website could be taken down at any moment. No one knows the day or the hour, except Rice IT. Until then, I'd better use it as much as possible.

today is graduation day. i have such mixed feelings about it because I'm so glad to be done with school finally, but on the other hand I'm going to miss everyone. I've had a great time these 4 years--especially this past year and I owe it all to God for blessing me with such great friends. I wish i could express how much I appreciate each and every one of you. okay... i promised myself i wouldn't cry..........be strong, reuben, be strong.....

I gotta move my site.. it's sure sad to be graduating and losing my free web hosting from Rice. it'll probably go to http://ruy2003.tripod.com unless I can find a better place (that's free). It kinda stinks because the Rice forms won't work anymore (like surveys and beef submissions), I won't have enough space to put up videos anymore, and there're stupid ad-banners all over the place. Any suggestions on what I should do? Read the related beef on this subject.

added a few pics to the senior year pictures page.

Okay, so my real website is back up. In case you didn't know, for the past week I've been playing the assassination game.

This is how it works: everyone who signs up gets a card with a name on it, and you have to shoot that person with a water gun. Then you get that person's target and so on until the game ends or until you get shot. I put up a fake website over the past week to avoid my assassin.

I just got shot tonight at the Coffee House (I should've known better than to attend such a high-profile event) but not before getting 12 kills. It was fun while it lasted, hiding, shooting random people, stalking people, being super paranoid all the time, running around with stocking over your face...ahh, good times.

So everyone always writes personal things in their web journals and as I looked over my entries I noticed I'm sorely lacking in the area of divulging my personal secrets and innermost feelings. So now in order to conform to internet standards I must make myself vulnerable and totally explose myself for all the world wide web to see. Anyway, here goes...

Why are there always holes in my socks? I don't understand it. I could buy a new pair and in a few weeks there'll be holes in them. Usually, to avoid embarassment, I try to keep around a pair of socks without holes in them and use those when I know I'll be at a place where I need to take off my shoes. However, now virtually ALL of my socks have holes in them. Some are tiny, but some are GINORMOUS. I guess it's not really that embarassing... I mean, the worst that could happen is people might think I'm poor, and hey, what's wrong with being poor? Most of the world's population is poor so what's the problem with having holes in your socks?
Anyway, I'm not completely sure why I have holes in all my socks but I have this theory that I walk funny or in such a way that causes enourmous tension at the sock seams right at the heel. I also wear shoes that are a little too loose so my feet slide around in my shoes whenever I move. Over time this tension tears the sock and is aggravated even more when I play basketball or tennis, because those sports involve lots of quick start and stop running motions, and eventually the holes get larger and larger. Either that or leprecons come into my room at night and chew the seams off my socks... Grrrr..stupid leprecons........I'll deal with those murderous trolls... Ooops, I mean.... I'll deal with those murderous trolls....

This is how I feel today

I wonder what prospective employers think of me when they see this site? HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH...hee hee, oh my.. they must think i'm awesome. hmmm, I wonder why I haven't gotten any job offers yet? It boggles the mind....anyhoo, on with the crazy blog entry...

I watched my second Rice baseball game today...apparently we're really good or something. Anyway, after we started putting the good 'ol nerd smackdown on UH we got bored and started talking about how awesome baseball is because there are so many possibilities and things that can happen that the imagination runs wild. Think about it, the batter can charge the mound and attack the pitcher. The pitcher can charge and attack the batter. Someone on first base could charge the pitcher for trying to throw him out. The fans could attack baseball players at any moment. The ball boys could charge the mound and attack the pitcher. The batter can attack the second base umpire. The batter can turn around and charge the catcher. The batter can run into the dugout and try to fight off 10 guys by himself. Teammates can attack each other. The coach can attack the batter. The possibilities are endless!!

Isn't baseball great? Well, it could be better, so...

Here are some ideas to revitalize the game of baseball:

1. Allow the runners to run anywhere on the field, not just along the baselines. This will make the game more exciting (like tag) because the players will be running everywhere. Maybe there should be an optional base in the outfield or something.
2. Stop giving out t-shirts with sleeves that only reach to the your mid-forearm. That just looks stupid.
3. Give everyone in the outfield a bat.
4. Give the batter a mace instead of a bat.
5. No walking batters on purpose. No one wants to see that crap.
6. Give glowsticks to all the fans. And turn out the lights and play techno music. Awww yeahh...

Do you have any ideas about baseball?? Leave a comment or email me

Oh Mylanta, what a week it's been. Too busy to update, but no one reads this anyway so who cares?!
The 30 hour fasting is now over and it's time to start working out again and eating like crazy. I hope I didn't lose any weight because that would be a shame... a darn crying shame...Anyway, I'm going to start trying to appreciate the food we get in the servery and not complaining anymore..so if you hear me saying something like, "This food sucks" please kindly remind me to be more grateful.
After that we watched a nice movie called I not stupid. It was pretty good. My only complaint is that it's a pretty racist movie. If I hear one more racist comment about Filipinos I'll kill someone. Oops, I mean..... I'll kill someone...shoot.

By the way, now thanks to Enetation you can leave comments on any of the entries on this blog and on The Beef Files. This is pretty exciting because now The Beef Files are interactive and the world can hear what you have to say about particular beef stories! (And it gives me many more opportunities to impersonate Matt Bullard) This is also gives people who refuse to sign my guestbook another chance to leave comments, questions, and violent reactions.

ps--some of the beef files are all clumped together in one or two gigantic blog entries so for now you can't really comment on specific "Classic Beef Files"..maybe i'll fix it someday.

One more website related thing: I need submissions for the Dump Page. If you know of any good bathrooms on or around Rice University's campus please email me

And now...time for some cow poetry

The distant hills call to me.
Their rolling waves seduce my heart.
Oh, how I want to graze in their lush valleys.
Oh, how I want to run down their green slopes.
Alas, I cannot.
Darn the electric fence!
Darn the electric fence!
Thank you.

Today's Blog Entry is dedicated to Chad Hernandez (R.I.P)

Chad, I'm sorry I didn't get to know you better and that I didn't keep in touch with you much after you left Rice. My only comfort is that I know we'll meet again someday on the other side. This is a painful reminder that usually you don't miss something until it's gone.

Please consider supporting me in the 30 Hour Famine. (participant id: RUY-1000).
I know you're thinking: "Won't Reuben die if he fasts for 30 hours?" Well, the answer is--I hope not (i'm not THAT malnourished). Seriously though, we're raising money to help feed children from some of the poorest countries in the world. Check out the website and see how you can get involved.

After watching the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers over the break, i've heard many heated discussions over who's the hottest person in the movie. Some say it's Arwen, some say Aragon. Most people, however say that it's Legolas who's the hottest. I have to disagree. Look at the two pictures below and tell me who you think's the hottest.

I think it's obvious who's the hottest. Have you seen that Eye of Sauron, lately? It's so hottt!!!!!

Some stupid image editing by me:
