Welcome Back

Hey, what up? Long time, no blog. How was everybody's Thanksgiving? Mine was alright thanks for asking. Didn't really do a whole lot, just ate a lot of food. And my mother was generous enough to sufficate me with tons of leftovers to bring back to my apartment. She wanted to give me a 3/4 of chocolate cream pie, but my healthy concious told me that would be a bad idea. So I just took half of the pie instead.

I don't know if any of you have heard of a british TV show called "The Office." It is probably one of the funniest shows ever to be on television. I will admit some of the humor is hard to pick up because of the british accents. But the characters and especially the boss, are good for many laughs. The show was on for two seasons, but last year they did a special. And it finally came out on DVD last week. Of course it was extremely funny. But one of the surprising things about it was the romantic realtionship between two of the characters. And for a comedy show, it was a bit moving. Feel free to call me gay or a homo if you want. But I found it kind of moving. I didn't cry or anything like that. The last time I cried during a movie was probably when I was six, watching the first "Karate Kid." I hated seeing that blond-hair jock beat the crap out of Ralph Machio. But anyways, there was something about that episode of "The Office" that I could identify with. If you get me really drunk one night, maybe I'll explain.

On Sunday, I waddled over to the grocery store. I really find the grocery store very soothing and comforting . For a dude, I don't mind grocery shopping at all. Anyways, during the check-out process I always face the same darn problem. How to swipe the damn, stupid, friggin, credit card. I have probably done it hundred of times, but each time I can't figure out how to swipe the darn thing. I always have to get the cashier to help me out. People, can we please get one,standard way to swipe the credit card. I swear evey place makes you swipe your credit card a different way. At the gas station I have no problems. I was at Old Navy the other day no problems. Best Buy no problems. Target has the best swiper thing, where you just slide the whole credit card face up. I love that machine! But the damn grocery stores coufuse the crap out of me. And the picture they got on there, confuses me even more. They make you put your credit card in more positions than a Ron Jeremy/Jenna Jaminson porn. (Not that I would know.) I have never claimed to be the smartest person in the world, nor have I claimed to be the dumbest. But swiping the credit card is equal in difficulty to my brain as doing the second and third derivatives in Calculus. I have no idea why, but it just is. So people, I am begging for a consistent, uniform way to swipe. And until there is, I apologize for anybody that has to wait in line behind me at a grocery store. That's it folks.

I'm out!

Thank God for Thanksgiving

Yo, what is going on? Big pick-up that this week is Thanksgiving. It is nice to have Thursday and Friday off. There will be a whole bunch of laziness going on, that's all I know. And there are also rumors that today may be an early/half day. I'll take whatever I can get.

Last night I made an interesting phone call. Talk to somebody I haven't talked to in months. The conversation went okay, but I felt there should of been some type of apology. And of course there wasn't. Oh well, who cares anyways?

Yesterday morning, I was taking my daily shower. When I got out there was water dripping from the ceiling. I thought to myself this can't be good. I thought maybe it was just a fluke incident. But it happened again this morning. Looks like my landlord will be getting a call soon. Although I'm not going to lie, the waterfall is a nice addition to the bathroom. It gives it a nice tropical feel.

Because I'm a sports fanatic many people are asking my take on the Pacers/Pistons/Fan Brawl. Well first of Ron Artest is insane, so you have to be near retarded to throw anything at him. That is why the Bulls got rid of him. And second of all basketball players should have more composure and professionalsim then to jump in the stands and attack fans. It was shocking and sickening to see players punching fans But lets face it people, us fans are pretty darn obnoxious. I'm not a professional athlete, but I can't tell you how many times I go to a sporting event and I am extremely annoyed and irritated by the stupid idiots that sit around me. Fans truly need to change how they act and sporting events. I know alcohol is a part of it, but I've had my share of drunken experiences at sporting events and never had the urge to act like a total jack ass. People just need to simply act more responsible.

I was at a show at Second City the other night. And I had these drunken bafoons sitting around acting like idiots. Talking during the show, yelling stuff out. And these people were in there late 30's, maybe early forties. During one of the skits, an actor was playing Ron Artest (as a joke) and one of the audience members threw a napkin at the stage. The audience member was quickly asked to leave. It was stupid for the guy to get kicked out, but again here is another example of people acting like jack asses. There is a reason why actors are on stage, and your dumb ass is in the audience so shut up. And when I'm in my thirties/forties getting drunk at a Second City show and yelling stuff out, somebody please slap the crap out of me.

Alright thats all I got. Have a good Thanksgiving for anybody who reads this. Well thats probably only going to be Johnny and Colleen. Oh and my sister, but I don't need to tell her that. I'm out.

After noticing a friend do this blog thing, I could not resist. I thought to myself what a great opportunity it would be to share my personal thoughts with millions of strangers. (Probably just my parents will read this.) Some of my postings will cover topics such as: food, sports, movies, TV, people, the world, and the misfortunes in my daily life. I will do my best to amuse and entertain. In most likelihood, I probably won't. Take care and please keep it real.
