When I take a week off from work and have more drinking time. I’m off until next Monday so, who knows the kind of debauchery that will ensue.
So, I have a new digital camera I got for my birthday. That pic was taken with it. So, now my blog posts will have better pictures than the pics of the past that were taken with my cell phone.
To test it out I tried to have a photoshoot with my dog, but she wasn’t having it. This was the best I could get because she kept moving or turning away.
Alrighty, just wanted to drop by with a quickie post while I’m online for now. I had time today since I got the Xmas shopping done early. I’ll still come by and try to catch up with everyone else’s blogs through the week.

It’s raining in Southern Cali. This has to be a sign of the apocalypse.
Since it doesn’t rain here 99% of the time then we’re having flooding issues and the roads are a mess. I don’t mind the weather getting cooler, but rain can be a drag. Hopefully, I don’t have to swim to work tomorrow. Wait, I can’t swim so I’ll have to fashion a Macgyver raft to take to work.

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.

Green Apples & Kool Aid Presents Real Men of Genius
(Real Men of Genius)
Today we salute you, Mr. Stupid Name Private Hire DJ Guy.
(Mr. Stupid Name Private Hire DJ guy)
You could have easily come up with any number of names to draw attention, but instead you chose one that reflects gang activity and flaunt it proudly.
(Somebody call the police)
You don’t care what your name implies or that you may never get hired as long as you never lose street cred while living in your mom’s garage.
(Sleeping next to the washer and dryer)
Cheap turntables purchased at a yard sale? Check. 80’s records? Check. Your 13 year old cousin to help you unload your stuff? Check.
(Gonna do the Electric Slide)
So crack open an ice cold beer, oh master of the record scratch, because being a self-centered jackass is what life’s all about.

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.

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!
