2009

January 2, 2009

Well, it’s another new year. It’s taken me a while to get up my obligatory New Year’s post, but I’ve been pretty lazy lately. I’ve had a lot of time off from work and I’ve spent most of it out with friends, relaxing or playing my Wii. Sure, I could have come on and did a quick post sooner, but I just figured it could wait.

I don’t have any resolutions per se, but I’m going to try to start looking for another job. I need to be making more money and I don’t see the possibility for a raise anytime soon at my current job. Of course there’s the whole trying to get healthier thing, but I started working on that a few months back.

I’ll try to post on my blog more, but I’m not making any promises. Hopefully the new year brings plenty of shenanigans that I can write about. So, hope everyone has a great 2009 and I’ll see you around on your blogs.


The Big 3-Oh No!

December 11, 2008

Yep, it’s my 30th birthday today! I made it through three full decades. I don’t mind turning 30, I just would have expected to accomplish a lot more than I have. But, I’ve done okay overall for myself, aside from all the falling down and subsequent injuries.  I have a full time steady job (for now), a roof over my head, transportation, and the ability to pay my bills. I’m not currently married or have kids but that’s by choice. And, really, with all the boozing and football watching I do, when would I have time for kids and/or a husband? I just  don’t really want kids quite yet, if at all.  I do wish I had a better job or better pay, but considering how high the unemployment rate is now, then I’m doing fine.

I had considered doing some big bash or going somewhere, but I did all that craziness for my 21st and most of my birthdays in my 20’s. I decided this year to spend it with my good friends who have been there through the years. I’m heading to a bar with my best friend tonight and having two dinners on Friday and Saturday nights respectively with my other friends.

I’m glad that all of my blog readers (the handful of you) can be here for this milestone of mine. Because I’m almost certain I won’t be blogging by the time my next age milestone comes around! Actually, if I could only quit being clumsy and falling all the time then I might have a chance of making it to 40! So, here’s looking towards my 30’s and whatever adventure they may bring.

Bubba & Booze

October 6, 2008

I have to start off by saying I’m tired and Mondays suck! I had a pretty relaxed weekend though, which was nice. However, I did have an impromptu running session yesterday as I had to chase my mother’s dog around the neighborhood when he got out of her house. He’s barely two years old so he’s full of energy and runs fast! Luckily I caught him.

Anyway, aside from the pooch prison break, I spent most of the weekend just running a couple of errands and relaxing. I did manage to purchase some more Halloween decorations. I may put more pictures up later in a future post as I’m sure I’ll end up buying even more stuff. I do have a picture of my fully grown Halloween Goblin from my previous post which I named Bubba. Here he is in his full size glory.

He really only grew to be about 3-4 inches tall. The package says I can grow him again so I guess I just have to wait until he shrinks back down again.

After my day of running errands I knew I needed to booze up a little so, I had a friend over Saturday night and we decided to purchase Budweiser’s American Ale beer to try.

I actually really enjoyed it. It’s very much like an amber ale.  It’s a good malt that has a rich brown notes. It was pretty crisp as well. The flavor reminds me of Fat Tire. So, if you like Fat Tire then I would recommend this one.

Well, that sums up my weekend. Sorry the pictures are kind of dark, but I didn’t have a lot of lights on. It rained Saturday night so, we kept the lights dim and the door opened. It really felt like fall/winter and it was nice. But it’s supposed to be 90 degrees again by Wednesday…damn.


Weekend Happenings

September 29, 2008

So, I thought I’d post a quick blurb on the weekend and it’s events. This is just a short post as I had one heck of a busy long weekend and I’m exhausted today. I really just want to take a nap under my desk, but apparently they frown on that at my job.

Some of you have already brought it up, and yes I’m well aware that Scott Linehan was fired as the Rams head coach. I doubt anyone is surprised by that. They are 0-4, have been outscored 147-43, have a paper thin defense and Linehan’s decision to bench Bulger for old man Trent Green is baffling. I can only hope that Chip Rosenbloom is working on making a lot more needed changes to get this team back to form.

On another note, I fell once again this weekend. I think this is my 3rd fall this year. Unfortunately, I re-injured my already bad knee and it’s bruised and swollen. Therefore I’m in some pain and rather uncomfortable. So, my mind isn’t focused too much which is why I don’t have a better post today. I’ll hopefully have more in the next couple of days. For now, I just want to go home, ice my knee, and take a nap!


If You Ain’t First, You’re Last

September 22, 2008

So, I had quite a busy weekend. Before I proceed with my uneventful summary I suggest reading DJ D’s post on the Spidey tin he won from me. He even makes fun of me a little in it. So, go on and read it. You will not be disappointed.

On to the weekend. I decided on Saturday morning to walk to my mother’s house instead of drive. I figured it’s a good way to get some exercise in and save on gas money. It took me an hour and a half to get there. I think I’ll drive next time. Anyhoo, since I walked I took streets that I don’t normally drive through much. So, I noticed a few things I hadn’t paid much attention to before. One of those things that caught my eye was this.

Sorry the picture is dark, but that says T&A Taco. Suggestive much? Perhaps a little subliminal advertising at work? I can only imagine the confused men coming in there only to realize that it is in fact nothing more than an eating establishment. I was quite amused. So, I guess it was good that I walked or I would have not seen this for a while.

I also did a little shopping with my mom in the afternoon. I saw these at Wal-Mart.

Those are mozzarella stick and onion blossom flavored Pringles. Has anyone tried these? I didn’t buy any because I’m trying to cut back on my junk food intake. Plus, I wasn’t sure if I’d like them. I need some feedback from someone who’s tried them first. If someone tells me they’re okay, then I might give them a shot.

Sunday was spent all day at the sports bar watching football. My team lost, they’re 0-3, they suck…blah, blah, blah. But it was fun being there with the other football fans. Even had a friendly little argument with a 49ers fan. Now I’m tired and a little hungover. I may have to leave work early because I’m “sick”. I need a nap!

That sums my last couple of days up. How was everybody else’s weekend?


The Huge, Spectacular, Fantastic, Ginormous, Stupendous, Superb Giveaway Of The Century!

September 11, 2008

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve come across a whole big box of brand new Spiderman tins that I have. I don’t know why I have them, but I do. Since a whole box full is clearly more than I need then I am going to give a few away to my audience out there in the blogosphere.

First, here’s a few pictures of the tin so, you can get an idea of what exactly you’re trying to win here.

The bottom of the tin also has a short blurb on how Peter Parker became Spiderman and about his enemies. The tin is about 4″ long, 2″ wide, and about 2″-3″ deep. I haven’t measured exactly so this is just a guess.

Also, keep in mind that for you to receive this fabulous prize, I will need an address to send it to. If you’re worried about giving an address out because I may stalk you…just a sec, had to move my night vision goggles…then you don’t have to participate and you give someone else a chance to win the prize and have me sit outside their window.

I’m going to make this pretty simple. I’m going to ask a couple of questions and the first 5 people to answer any one of those questions correctly will win. Some of you that I talk to more may know the answers, but this is a first come first serve game. So, you may answer correctly, but only the first 5 correct answers win a part of ‘DC’. No, really, I’m going to add a few toenail clippings inside for good measure. On to the questions.

1. I have 4 colors that I like a lot…name one. And just pick a color, I’m not worried about shades.

2. What’s my astrological sign? (This question has already been answered correctly and is out of the running)

So, there it is. Go ahead and give your answers in the comments section and good luck. Oh, and only those who have left at least 2 previous comments on my blog can participate. And you also only get one guess per comment.

Balls In The Air

September 10, 2008

With the football season upon us, it seems that my co-worker, a Packers fan, has decided to place his Packers football on the wall of his cubicle again. I’ve always had my Rams one up, but he took his down for a while.  The thing is that the guy sits right next to me. So, this is the view I get coming in. (Click on the picture to make it larger)

The only good thing is my football is on the wall right between us so, he sees it all day. His football is on the wall to his far right so, once I sit down I don’t see it anymore…whew.

And just for sh*ts and giggles, here’s some of the other random football crap lingering on my desk.

I always keep Rams stuff around as a sort of good luck charm…I can see how well that’s been working out so far. 😕

 

And another fun note of good times at work, I love the passive aggressive notes that are placed in the bathroom. The even greater thing about this sign is that it is on the wall to the right of the sinks, which means someone purposely splashed water on it as a symbolic “F*** You!” to whoever put the sign up. 😆

 

Also, I’ve been helping my mother do some cleaning around her house. In doing so, I’ve found a big box I have of small Spiderman tin boxes. All brand new and individually wrapped in plastic. I’m thinking of giving some away to my fellow bloggers. So, look for a post sometime next week in regards to being able to have your very own Spiderman tin! I’ll only be giving away about 5. I’ll start thinking of how I want to do this to narrow down who the lucky recipients will be.
