That’s right folks. It’s the greatest day in October…Halloween!
I hope you all have a fantastic day. I have to get through the work day first. However, with all the potlucks and holiday nonsense then today shouldn’t be too bad. Then I can head off to my nightime shenanigans. I’m going to drink myself retarded tonight. Which shouldn’t be hard since all my previous years of drinking has already given me a head start. I am wearing a costume for the first time ever to work too. I am a referee, of course. Anyways, hope everyone makes it a great one no matter what you end up doing.

So, as many of you so clearly know, I am a big St. Louis Rams fan. Anyone who knows me personally knows my obsession with football and my team. Some of you here have already mentioned that you now think of me when you hear anything related to the Rams. Well, I thought I’d give you all a sneak peek into my fanatics. This is only skimming the surface. I really do have tons of Rams related stuff.
Here’s just some of the stuff and clothing I have at home.
My cookie jar.
My bobbleheads from years ago. The only one of those players still on the team is Orlando Pace.
Mini footballs and my mini gorilla. Those are decoration spiderwebs for Halloween.
Blanket (just one of many)
Clothing (Sorry the pic is upside down)
Even more clothes
Are you starting to get an idea of just how much of a fan I am yet? And these are only a few things. I didn’t feel like taking pictures of everything. Plus, I’ve already posted the pics of my furniture and of the things I have at work.
I’ll leave you with these last couple of things.
Hanging from my rear view mirror in my car
And always around my neck
So, there you have it. A bit of how far my love for my team goes. Now, I’m sure you’ll all think of me from now on whenever the Rams are mentioned.
EDIT: Here’s a couple more things I found in my desk at work.
Old L.A. Rams trading cards
A tin of Rams chewing gum. Yeah, I know, only me.

I won’t be online until tomorrow night. So, I won’t be available to hear the congrats if my Rams win or the crap talking (jerks) if they lose. However I will come by either happy or sad and discuss the hopeful win. Until then folks.
Update: Damnit! We lost.

That’s right, today is “Weird Al” Yankovic’s birthday. And come on…who doesn’t love Weird Al. I remember discovering Weird Al back as a wee youngin’ and being highly amused at his parody songs. This is the guy that made the accordion cool again. I know at least for me, I knew his song lyrics better than the originals. So, I had to send out birthday wishes to the guy who kept me entertained for so many years! Here’s a little mix video of some of his songs…enjoy!

That’s right the underestimated Rams won another one. This one against the Dallas Cowboys. It was nice to see the Rams playing how I knew they always could. Jackson was running right through the Cowboys the whole game and ended up with two touchdowns in the first quarter alone. The Cowboys turned the ball over twice allowing the Rams to convert one turnover into points. They dominated the whole 1st half leading 24-7 going into halftime.
The second half didn’t start off too great for the Cowboys either. Penalties kept them from converting on a 3rd and one and a 4th and one and they ended up missing a 46 yard field goal. And what do the Rams do when they get the ball back after that? Give it to Jackson for a 56 yard TD run! A few minutes later the Cowboys turn the ball over once again and the Rams are able to put up 3 more points. The 4th quarter just added yet another turnover from Dallas. The Cowboys did manage to score another TD in the last couple of minutes of the game, but this game was over for them since halftime.
Final score 34-14.
This was a completely Rams dominated game. The Cowboys looked unorganized and sloppy. I just hope the Rams continue to hold on to this momentum through the rest of the season.

Yesterday I mentioned over on X-E that I had recently made an awesome purchase and I thought I’d share that here. This beauty is not only kick ass, but is perfect for Halloween. Yep, I bought myself some Crystal Head Vodka. Check it out.
Now, I had only recently heard of this and remembered thinking I may try to look for it. So, imagine my surprise when the rinky dink little liquor store on the corner had it! I almost broke into the robot from my excitement! The guy told me he only ordered three and I was getting the first one!
Now, the skull bottle is cool enough for me to have bought it, but I also knew Dan Akroyd was shilling the stuff so that made it extra special! I have yet to try it because I still have another bottle of vodka in the freezer to finish. But no worries, that other bottle of vodka will probably be finished by this weekend and then I’ll be able to try this stuff. For now I’m going to build it a pedestal and stare at it.

I’d like to beat up the jerk who decided to come up with voice prompt for automated phone systems. What the heck was wrong with having people just push the button on the phone’s keypad? Now I have to say my answers and try to enunciate as best I can so that the damn thing can ‘understand’ me. Just let me push the damn buttons! Why must I be made to look like an idiot with tourettes by being out on my phone randomly saying “yes” and “no” with the occasional curse word because the stupid thing wasn’t sure what I said?!
Plus, the damn thing seems to be sensitive at random times. I’ll be trying to say something and at the same time a fly goes by and suddenly it needs me to repeat myself! So, I try again, but my neighbor down the street slammed his door so again it can’t understand me! I keep trying to repeat myself but then I’ll suddenly have to sneeze or cough and start over!!!
And do these places forget that their business hours are my business hours! I usually need to call when I myself am at work. Am I supposed to announce my account number or social security number? And since the damn system can never catch what I’m saying then I’m pretty much yelling out my personal information! What if I need to say “birth control”, “fungus medication” or “proctology”??? I’m now expected to say these things out loud no matter where I’m at.
So, please, let’s just stop with the voice prompt systems. Just let me push the damn buttons on my phone until I get to where I need to go! I’m not a big phone person so, half the time, I don’t even want to talk to an operator so don’t make me talk to a machine, damnit!
