The Hamster Speaks

July 24, 2011

I was planning to write a lot about our exploits in South Dakota tonight but it’s late and I’ve got a lot of planning (and laundry) to do before I can get some much-needed sleep. So I’ll catch you up on South Dakota tomorrow night.

In the meantime I figured I’d share some of The Hamster’s thoughts on the trip, the sights, and life in general. Unfortunately I’ve only got my netbook with me, which lacks video editing software, so the following videos are all raw footage, but most are just a few seconds long anyway.

As you can see from the videos, by far our biggest point of contention so far has been souvenirs. Anyway, I’ll let Sam do the talking:

1. Sam goes fishing, gets a bite, and then realizes that the fish ate the bait without getting hooked

2. Sam at Niagara Falls

3. Sam complains about my souvenir policy

4. Interview That Guy (with more souvenir complaints)

5. Sam’s friend, Blankie

6. Crown Fountain

7. Chicago weather

8. On the rural scenery seen from the car:

You know what entertains me? Big, beautiful mansions in the middle of nowhere.

9. Interview That Guy, Episode 3 (as you can see, it’s not very easy to conduct an interview, do all the camera work, and drive to Minneapolis all at the same time)

10. On “It’s Not My Time,” by Three Doors Down

I’m pretty sure this song is about Vayeira [the part of the Torah that recounts the destruction of Sodom].

11. Interview That Guy, Episode 4 (The Food)

12. On Badlands National Park

You know what I love about seeing beautiful places? When you’re, like, going up a mountain, and you start seeing a little bit of it, and you see a little more, and a little more, and then you suddenly see the whole thing and you’re like, ‘woah!’

13. At 6:59 am this morning, in his sleep

Oh, you got burned! What now!

    When does “that guy” interview you? That might be interesting to see…
