Back to the grind.

“You’re quite an attractive women for someone with such a beautiful body”

I find that statement funny. I find a lot of stuff funny. I like reading Esquire from time to time, the articles are really good, and I almost feel good about just reading magazines because Esquire’s articles are that well written. They have this section called 10 things you didn’t know about women. The guest writer on the most recent Esquire is Keyra Sedgwick (I might of misspelled her name) she’s Kevin Bacon’s wife/girlfriend-whatever Hollywood calls it) she wrote something really interesting about women.
“Our friends are not your enemies but you better not be good friends with our enemies.”

Ponder that if you will...

On a more serious or semi serious note... ok it’s more of a funny side note. I would like to apologize to people who have pets. I wrote some mean things about pets, not necessarily your pet but pets in general. I’m not judging anyone for loving their pets too much, I use to have pets and I loved them a lot too, so I wrote that little bit with past experience. Anyways continue to love them and they’ll continue to love you back…I wish humans could be this way.

I love you all……….for not loving me back.

Manny, papi chulo, Big Papi

The Red Sox's lost tonight in a thrilling game. I suppose that could sum up the game. Though I would say that sitting on 9 row up on the 3rd baseline was the proverbial bomb! I saw manny scratch his junk to which hol could only say "I guess that is a guy thing!!".
I predicted a Manny home run and Hol's dad was able to steal the 3rd base coach stealing motion...hol was quite impressed. This day was pretty cool...random observations from Toronto.
  • There is a large number of crazy looking people here, crazy hair, accents, and clothes..I like it.
  • Public transportation is really well organized, stuff shows up on time and gets you there when it say it would.
  • A veggie dog from a hot dog vender on the street is the only way to really eat a hot dog..there better than then the real thing!
  • I love Canadian much more shoe all I know how much I love shoes!
  • I'm addicted to White! I bought a white sports coat, I don't even plan on wearing until after labor day..what!
  • Chinese buffets are nicer in Toronto..
  • Pollution is worse in Toronto
  • I won a free game in the Super 7 lotto, I didn't even know how to play!?!?
  • Filipino weddings are the da s$* much food.. so much drink...yeah...anyways.

here are some pictures from today at the game...well just mostly of hol and me..

Live from Newcastle...

So I'm on day 3 of my adventure in Canada. I must say that Toronto is a beautiful city. I don't say this because I might have Canadian readers, though my biggest fan is a Canuck, but because T.0 is the da bomb. I spent a good day in the city yesterday and I felt like a tourist, well I had a backpack and I didn't know where to go..Holly doesn't make down to the city that often. I hit up some H&M and got me a little sumthin, sumthin...It was great. Though I have to say the exchange rate sucks, it use to be 1.45 for US. Buck, now its like 1.10-1.11!!! ANYWAYS, had a great lunch today, we ate outside and had home made rhubarb pie!..I went on a bike ride with the fam and I somehow managed to break the bike..I bent the spokes or something but the back tire was warped from my stronger muscular legs..hahahaha..I have pictures but I haven't posted them on flickr,yet. I still have a wedding to go to tomorrow and a Red Sox's game on Monday..I think the only person having a better week than me is Dave..He's on his way to Greece right now..I'll miss you Dave.."Like the deserts miss the rain.."

I'm oout!

I know that I’m going to get crap for saying this but someone has to say it, so I’m going to say it. What the hell is up with owners loving their pets like they were real people? I mean we had a co-worker today not show up for work because her cat died! What? I mean I use to have a dog and I loved it to death but I also had to take care of it constantly because it couldn’t cook its own food, or clean itself, or pick up after its self, it was a full time job, I was only 10..its against the law for 10yr olds to have full-time jobs. Anyways today on the way to work, Dave and I were sitting at the light when this older man pulls up to the side of the Element. I noticed he had a cute little dog sitting in the front with him; it was a border collie or something like it. I stated and I quote
“Ah, how cute, the old man has his dog sitting up front with him”.
Yes a very gay statement at the time to which quickly transcend into, WTF, his wife is sitting in the back seat. Apparently the driver made his wife sit in the back seat as the cute dog rode shot gun! HAHAHAHA... For some reason animals sometimes replace relationship with other human beings. I think it’s because they never talk back and never judge you. You can tell your pet anything and chances are that you’ll get licked in the face. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thin? I suppose it depends on what kind of pet you have. I’m not saying that its crazy to love your pet, but how much can you really love a pet that never challenges you, doesn’t make you think, or doesn’t give you a different outlook. It’s a one way relationship, unless you have Brian the Dog as your pet, if so, I’ll be over after work, to help you write that novel he’s been working on. You know that novel about friends become enemies-enemies become friends. *I started writing this before I found this article on my Google homepage*
Extreme cases of pets being loved too much, don't worry its not gross!
Whew, see what happens when you love your pets too much. They die. Ok, well this will probably be the last post for a couple of days; I’ll be posting pictures and audio blogging from the road. I’m looking forward to my single serving friends. Perhaps Billy or Jane will make for interesting conversation on the way to the Great White North!

had this song on my mind...

Today is gonna be the dayThat they're gonna throw it back to you
By now you should've somehowRealized what you gotta do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now
Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk along are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to youI don't know how
Because maybe
You're gonna be the one who saves me?
And after all You're my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day
But they'll never throw it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you're not to do
I don't believe that anybody Feels the way I do
About you now

And all the roads that lead to you were winding
And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
I don't know how

I said maybe
You're gonna be the one who saves me?
And after all You're my wonderwall
I said maybe You're gonna be the one who saves me?
And after an You're my wonderwall
Said maybe You're gonna be the one that saves me
You're gonna be the one that saves me
You're gonna be the one that saves me
“But I like the cookie”

Ok I know I’ve said on many occasion that I hate watching cartoons at the theater but last night I went to go see Over the Hedge and it was hilarious!! Kendra I hope you used your free passes to see it! I kept on laughing at Eugene Levy’s voice and Steve Carell character, an overly hyper-active squirrel! (Holly would have loved that).

Oh before I forget, Jess decided that she was going to conquer wildlife this weekend. She chased two ducks around and then proceeded to try to pet a crazy squirrel!!! It was a tame squirrel that had been fed by people so it wasn’t afraid of human, Holly was right!, and it looked like it was going to jump on Jessica. I really think that would have been the funniest thing in the world if Jess would have been attacked by a crazy squirrel! The thought almost makes me want to laugh out loud at work!

Well I have 3 days left in the US. I’m going to Toronto for memorial day weekend, how un American of me! However I will be partaking in a American pastime, baseball. We are set to go to a Blue Jay’s- Red Sox’s game! I can’t wait.

Ok this is really boring..
Sorry, I guess I’m just boring.

Blag Day

I have 8 days left till I head up to the Great White North. I’m heading back to Toronto folks, this time I’m not going to win a girl’s heart but to melt her heart! I’m looking forward to spending time with Hol again. It seems like it’s been forever since we spent any significant time together, perhaps because it has been. Well I don’t think this trip will fix all our long distance issues but it will make my memorial day more memorable! I don’t know why but I can’t stop thinking about this song:

I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright (baby you do look bright-what does mean?)
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance(So this song is about a hooker)
I have never seen that dress you're wearing Or the highlights in your head that catch your eyes I have been blind (A hooker with highlights, awesome!)
The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek There's nobody here, it's just you and me, It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side (This song is definitely about a hooker, he doesnÂ’t even know this woman)
I'll never for get, the way you look tonight

I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight (That because you just met her Chris!)
I've never seen you shine so bright you were amazing
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, It took my breath away (That of course was after he gave her $300 dollars for the night!)
I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight ( I think when heÂ’s singing the song he almost says Lust, like its at the tip of his tongue but he manages to say Love)
The way you look tonight I never will forget,
the way you look tonight
The lady in red
The lady in red
The lady in red
My lady in red (I love you.)(IÂ’m in love with a stripper!!!!)

Ah man, that was fun..happy huIping day..i mean hump day.

What is the price of becoming an American?

Yesterday President Bush announced his stand on Illegal Immigration and the steps to reduce and ultimately eliminated Illegal Immigration. Now I’m not going to go over everything he said in his speech yesterday if you like you can read @
However I did find some interesting statements/facts from his speech. 85% of Illegal Immigrants are Mexican, wow!! Not only are they hard working but they command the market share of Illegal Immigration, from that remaining 15% how many are terrorist? I didn’t read that figure in his speech. I guess Sept 11 was planned by a bunch of crazy Mexicans, so now they’re public enemy #1. Whatever.
According to President Bush, Illegal Immigrants have become so high tech in there forgery of papers that President Bush will be pushing for tamper-proof identification, Biometric technology to be exact. I doubt that a illegal immigrant can afford a good forged document on top of the cost of coming across the border with a “coyote”. Right, the farm owner can’t tell if his worker are illegal!I think the first hint would be accepting next to nothing wages!!! Who in their right mind would want to pick fruit for $3 dollars an hour!!!!! The reason Illegal’s can work here is because of the demand for cheap labor, If a owner could pick between paying Joe $20/hr to do construction and pay Jose$10 bucks an hour, well guess whose getting the job. The problem isn’t that Illegal are getting jobs that no one wants, its that they’re getting jobs that you might want. I don’t hear anyone complaining about a shortage of jobs to clean toilets!! Right now its costing American 1/3 of what it will cost once the Immigration bill passes. Tamper-proof identification, increased border agents, and temporary work programs. Who do you think is going to pay for that? I never had a problem with Illegal Immigration until Sept 11, 2001 and those immigrants came in legally. The worst thing Jose ever did to me was not picking enough apples.

One more thing...

Omg (oh my goodness-I’m trying to cut down on swearing)

I’ve had blog block, I’ve had these short ideas/topic that I’ve been thinking about writing but when it comes time to put it together I get absolute crap. So what do I do, I list all those ideas/topic that I’ve been thinking about.

~I’ve been thinking to myself lately that I should make a dvd of all the funniest parts of movies that I love so that when ever I’m really sad, bored, or in need of laugh I can just watch all these clips without having to see the whole movie.

~Friends can sometimes become family, I’m grateful for having the friends that I have and remorseful for those that I’ve lost along the way.

~Regret can be haunting, it can creep on you at any time of the day and it knows no bound. I will sometimes wake up in the middle of night discouraged because of my own personal regrets.

~Money can break lives as fast as it can put them back together.

~ If I could have one wish it would be that my parents never would of gotten divorced, that single event changed my life forever.

~Sometimes its nice to have life be as simple as corn flakes, no twist, no turns, no unexpected raisins to throw you off your course. I could spice up my own life just like I could with corn flakes..add some bananas, cherries…etc..etc..( I don’t know where I was going with this?)

~I noticed that I’m incapable of doing 3 things at a time. I get easily distracted. I started writing this at 11:21, the present time is now 2:27p!!!

~I read Erin’s blog everyday because I’m hoping for a funny Mikael story, I read Jessica’s blog for a ridiculous statement, I read Mandy’s blog for some quizzical humor/knowledge or an opportunity to disagree with her. I read Kendra’s blog for a crazy occurrence and the pictures. I read many other blog’s but I won’t tell you which ones, I can’t incriminate myself!

I had nothing to write so I wrote about everything…see how none of these things were worthy of a singular entry!

16 days till Toronto…

Must change music…

Da Vinci

I have a guilty pleasure..I enjoy playing riddle games and puzzles..I've been playing Google's Da Vinci Code game for the past couple of days..Its based on the book and it takes you through challenges and riddles. You can add it to your Google Homepage and play it from there! Well the weekend is finally here (see Wednesday's post) and I'm exhausted. I gave blood yesterday because I wanted the $10 Publix gift-card. I know that's not a good reason to give blood but we all have our motives, let this be mine. The nurse tech that assisted me was this burly man with a thick accent. I had to decipher what he was talking about when he was asking me questions. Luckily I went to Andrews University for 4 yrs and was able to pick up on his island accent. He was a cool cat, I don't remember his name but he took life from me to help others in need. I know how noble of me but remember I did it for food. Which brings me to my next question, I think I read somewhere that we have 10 pints of blood in us.. I mean that's a lot of blood but when you put in a bag, it doesn't look like that much..granted I don't want to ever really see how much 10 pints is..because I think I would pass out! ok well I'm off..I'm make sure to at least change the music on here for those that like listening to my blog for my music..

Thats right from the get go, a link. I think it was written so well that i would rather you read his then my take on "skinny Jeans". I must apologize to Mish for writing about fashion on Thursday's. Thats really her thing..i just came across the article today.

I was thinking today about crazy movie facts- did you know that Vendetta is only said once in V for Vendetta?

I can name two movies that Lester has been the name of the main or pseudo main character- American Beauty and Almost famous, ironically they both had the same initials, (LB for Lester Bangs and Lester Burnham!?).

Women spitting is still not attractive, as i was walking back from the cafeteria this young lady just spat on the sidewalk? Gross..i don't like my ladies spitting in public.

I feel naked when i don't have my cell phone..i don't know what to do..i forgot today at home and i think i might want to drive back to get it..

wearing black on a hot day is a bad idea.

I like to look at pictures, thats really the only reason i like myspace...what ever happen to friendster?

and finally...Dave thinks that Sophia Bush and Holly sound alike..he might be right but i still think Holly is hotter!

Talk about late responses.

~So today while I was at my mindless job I got a call from my employer, though technically they’re not, about a position I applied for back in January! Its now May. WTF!! I wanted to yell at the person on the other line but I didn’t because it may or may have not been her fault for the tardy response, whatever I’m done with them.

~Moving on, I’ve been getting an itch to go out west for a vacation of sorts but I’m afraid if I venture out there I might not want to come back. I know Florida is great and all but I remember the bay area around this time and its da bomb yo! So we’ll see…

~How the hell is it only Wednesday!! What the hell, I feel like if close my eyes right now I might not get up till Sunday morning! This has been the longest week and its not freaking over.

~A possible advertising in my head
There’s something I want to talk about that many of you might do and perhaps never think about?! You’re probably thinking, what is he talking about? He doesn’t know what I do or does he? Yes friends and its sweeping across everyone’s lives, I’m not talking about drinking, smoking, drugs, or even premarital sex. I’m talking about swearing, studies have shown that 100% of adults ranging from 21-30 swear everyday (actually I made that up but I’m sure its at least 75%-oh that’s a lie too!) swearing is taking over at the dinner table, the living room, basketball courts, its at the beach, its on the golf course..Friends it’s every where. If someone where to sit outside my room they would think me and GD had an open form of communication the way I keeping talking to him (I really hate saying that word but it comes out so easily!). What I’m trying to say is that swearing might one day come back to bite you in the butt (I used an alternative word other using the more explicit word) but there isn’t a need to worry. I’ve set up a hotline for those seeking help or just wanting to talk, 1800-463-877953 (gofurself). A friendly, understanding robot is waiting to not listen, he’ll ignore you, ask you ridiculous questions, and from time to time he might even swear at you, by the time you’re done with the call if you haven’t cussed out our robot so bad that you never want to swear again, we’ll tell you to gofurself (that usually does the trick).

This promo was brought to you by The GOFURSELF Foundation, making swearing a thing of the F$*& Past, Bitch!

~its only Wednesday!

Friday Night delight

Here is Dave looking at the camera and not blinking!

So I'm not sure if any of you( when I mean you I mean everyone outside of Orlando) play games on Friday/Saturday night. Games such as Uno, not my favorite, Phase 1000 but that what it feels like by the time the end of night rolls in, then there's Trivial pursuit which for some reason seems to be the measure stick for intelligence within this group (my group) of friends. I the look of surprise is un measurable when someone gets a answer that no on thought could be answered. You know its actually funny because I think everyone thinks that everyone is dumb or maybe just me.. I tend to roll my eyes at this notion..As Royce would say "You don't know everything about everyone, Geez!" Royce keeps real, sometime even more so than me. That's why he's da $hit...Anyways, I'm sure Friday nights aren't that much different than your Friday nights with the exception of the table of insults as I've lovingly name it. The table of insults is where we play our games and simultaneously rip(make fun of) on each other. Its like Yo momma but without the Momma jokes and the annoying fez trying to be funny.... I don't how it started and why it hasn't ended but it keeps on going. No subject is off limits, seeing how everyone knows each or at least knows enough to get someone rillled up. Its actually alot of fun, if you can't make fun of yourself why not get help from those who do it every time you leave the room. Out town friends seem surprised how brutal it can be sometimes.... But no one ever leaves Crying, well at least not visibly crying.

Oh side note, since this blog underlying theme is noticing, yesterday as we where doing our monday rituals, bowling, i noticed that when justin left-he left this morning, i would be transcended into the 3rd,5th, and sometimes 7th wheel!! Ain't that a bitch, i've had a girlfriend longer than all of them and still do but yet i'm the one left feeling like a chump.
