The Social Network

So i just got done watching The Social Network for the first time. I have to say might be one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time.The acting in this was perfect ( if you overlook Justin Timberlake who I think maybe went a little over the top). The best part in my opinion might very well be the opening scene, I just thought how it was great to see him try and figure out what he had said wrong and what just happened.
Hope everyone has a good night and may we all have a great day.

Angry People

Ok, so in my day to day as a cable guy I come across all kinds of people. The worst ones are the ones that always seem to be angry. For instance, for lunch the other day I decided to go to Shoney's. When I walked in there was several people standing around the door, some of which were paying and some who were waiting to be seated. Now here is the part that blows my mind. After a few minuites a waitress walked over to me and asked me if i needed to be seated, what she didn't know was that the lady next to me was there before me. Now that seems to be a simple mistake right. Well not to this lady, she proceeded to chew this waitress a new a$$hole right there in front of her kids(great example to set right).
Now that is just one of the many times I get the privalage of watching people get upset and downright ANGRY over some of the stupidest shit. Well for my message to all who will listen to me I just wanted to say that if you catch yourself doing this stupidest of all acts just remember to step back and think, do i want someone doing this to me at my place of work or even just on the street taking a walk.

Here is a Nickelback video that I think says everything that needs to be said.

I always thought we sent our kids to school to get smarter, but I guess I was wrong.

Early Morning Panic and Power Outages

Don't you love it when the first thing you do in the morning is wake up in a panic? Well thats how my day started. So here I am sleeping like a rock on my day off no less when my brain decides to forget about that important fact and notice that there is a lot of light coming through my window. Next thing I know I am sitting up so fast I am surprised that it doesn't cause whiplash or mild brain damage. After that it takes me a good minute or so to realize that it is my day off. Will someone please tell me why our brains seem to forget what we clearly knew the night before? If you ask me I just think it is gods little way of reminding us that life is too short to just lay in bed all day on you day off. So I guess I will just say this, if your in bed and it is the middle of the day then get up and go do something, at least get up and get dressed. But most of all, HAVE FUN.

So in the last week and a half my apartment has lost power 4 times, one of which resulted in what I called "THE MEXICAN BLACKOUT" (if you scroll down you can read all about that little adventure). The first time we lost power it was during a tornado warning. One in which I was completely content with sitting in my living room watching American Idol and look through the blinds. But unfortunately as soon as the power went out I lost all the background noise i had and was surprised to find myself feeling like a little kid who is scared of the wind and thunder. I then spent the next several minutes in the bathroom with 2 pissed off cats who really did not want to be there and a wife who loves to call me stupid for looking out windows during storms (sounds like fun right). The second one was the outage that sent me to my neighbors  then to Mexican . Thankfully the other two were just shot times with no power. So as I write this i am watching the tv tell me once again that I am part of another warning or watch, I tell you what i will go outside and WATCH the weather and shout a WARNING if something happens :) . Hope everyone in similar situations is safe and has a great day.

My day out with Gina (photos)

This is some of the pictures I took on my day out with Gina.

Don't Let the words fool you, This is a cookie jar. Crazy right.

You gotta wonder whats wrong with the snow globe industry when Speed Racer is considered a good idea.

I just wanted to take a picture of a butt. :)

Whoa how did this one get in here. The camera must have just gone off.

I found Dumbledore!!! He is not dead just hiding out in a pottery store.

Just one word. BOOOOO!!!!

Can't you see how thrilled I am to be in a Pottery store.

I wonder what he is thinking about?

I thought this one was cool. You don't even have to get up to poop.

This one is self explanatory.

Bad Advertising

Ok here I am walking thru Old Time Pottery with the wife when I turn around and see a blanket called snug sack . It might just be me but I think whoever came up with this name needs to be taken out back and shot for advertising.

Best Buy over compensating

So the wife are doing a little shopping and decided to go to Best Buy for a new wireless keyboard and mouse. Now the thing you need to know is we were in there for only 10 minutes. In that time at least 7 people asked us " How are you today" I then would " I'm fine, we are just looking, thanks." Then they would continue by saying " well if you need anything just let me know" then they would follow for a moment, I guess just in case you changed you mind from the previous second. When you walk in they should say "Welcome to Best Buy, the used car lot of today" " our staff will bug till you go nuts, have a nice day."

The Morning After

While I regret my drinking actions of last night now that I am awake and sober, I did have a good time with some very good friends at the Mexican restaurant. This morning however I woke up in a bit of a panic because I thought there was a STEAMROLLER on my head. But thankfully after the momentary haze of the morning passed I realized that the feeling was just a hangover from HELL. Still not sure which would be worse, the STEAMROLLER or THE HANGOVER FROM HELL. I am now having a good time playing some Call of Duty on the PS3. I would have to say that the best part of this game is hearing all the kids on the game try and smack talk even though I am sure that most of them has the vocabulary of a 6 year old. Now that I think of it so do some of the adults that try to smack talk to this game. Well now it is time to go and spend the day with the wife. So I would just like to thank you for reading my ramblings and putting up with the days that are my life.

Mexican Blackout

So early tonight the power went out in our apartment for about 20 min. Gina and I decided it would be fun to go and see our neighbors. Well, after some well thought out ( and might i say brilliant) scheming, we decidced to go and get some mexican. Now unfortunally, the restraurnt had margarittas on sale and we ended up staying there too long, now I am drunk off my ass and have fallen down at least once. Oh yeah, side note, trying to walk a dog while feeling like this is a bad idea. It somehow gave me the hiccups and nearly made me puke. So after making a fool of myself I decided it would be a good idea to go home and tried to go to bed and fell, while still hiccuping. My lovely wife said a spoon full of sugar would fix this and I will be damned if that did not work  (thanks Mary Poppins) . Well now, I am feeling a little better and ready to pass out.    

Oh yeah here is a picture of me at the restaurant. 
One last thought, mom I swear this doesn't happen but like once a year. lol

insanity on the latter

Just wanted you guys to see this great line I had to put my latter on

Baby Speak VS. Foreigners

Recently while at an install I was sitting in the floor of a living room trying to hook up a tv. The customers 4 yr old daughter decided she wanted to tell me something. Unfortunatly I could not understand her ( who really knows baby speak?) . So to get her point across she got close to my head and screamed what she was trying to say. That's when a thought struck me. When we as adults are trying to talk to someone from another country and they don't understand us we proceed to yell to them what we are saying. Is it just me or should we not have learned that doesn't work no matter you age. Just my thoughts. Talk at you later.
