...when someone says she prefers the company of others to your exclusive company.

The song of the day is "Popular" by Nada Surf. I loved this "song" when it first came out! I was riding in my car, and they played a different song ("Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand" by Primitive Radio Gods..also a pretty good song...), which I have on a mix album with "Popular". The song of the day it will be! ;)

And, no, there is no other reason for that to be the song of the day! No break-ups, no fights with the wife. :D Actually, things have been more peaceful at home than usual... Yay!!

I have a Halloween party this upcoming Friday. I'm going as a keg of beer. It's a nice costume from Target (pretty sweet, and the price was right...all costumes 10% off right now!!*), and the helmet tap actually works (although the little reservoir doesn't hold a lot of beer...but it does eliminate trips to the real keg!). I wonder what would happen if I asked my wife to do a keg stand... :P

*This offer may only apply to the Target store located at 8151 Martin Luther King Jr. Street, Saint Petersburg, Florida, since each store has their own choice as to what to put on sale/clearance...within reason!

Gotta work...brb

I'm back...and I hope..I don't get hit..in the REAR again.

That commercial is hilarious!! Burt Bacarach (I doubt I spelled that correctly, but I don't have time to fix it) is pretty cool in my book...even if he is a bit old. ;)

Does anyone know if we are still in round 2 of guessing the theme to Berserk Wig? I don't know if anyone figured that theme out yet. I need to look into that...

I finally got to the end of Paranoia Agent. It's a pretty good anime series, but it was a little short (13 total episodes). I wonder if it could have been enhanced by being drawn out over a few more episodes, and adding in some stuff? I think so. As a series, it's premise is hard for me to define..except as slightly confusing. It's pretty serious, which usually doesn't work for me, but this time it works fairly well.

We've been watching the old TV series "Soap" at work during lunch breaks, and it's funny! I had forgotten about it, since it originally aired in the early 1980's. Glad to become re-acquainted! I wonder if it would have been as funny back when it first aired. The themes are tame for nowadays (extra-marital affairs, mothers and daughters sharing partners, homosexuals considering sex change operations), but back in the 1980's, these were (to my recollection...I was 7 in 1980!) pretty controversial topics! Well, until I invent the time machine, we'll never know.

Well, I have to get back at it. See you next week...or so. :P

Awesome! I got to see the entire Evil Dead trilogy!

The party was OK. I had a pretty good time. Being asocial makes parties not so much fun, but I did what I could. I didn't embarrass my wife, so that's what it's all about, eh? :)

16-IX-2009 or Behind The Scenes (GE)

For those who are not aware, my first character in Gothic Earth is retiring. I believe that Scott is going to keep him around to use for his own undoubtedly nefarious purposes, but essentially, I am done with him. There were many reasons behind it, but there was just a single overriding reason above all others: I found myself unwilling to continue with him. Go »

30-III-2007 or Happy Days are here again!

I watched a re-run of Happy Days on TV last night. Nothing to get excited about. Betcha thought I had some good news to share. Go »

22-II-2007 or Speaking of crap...

I wrestled with not saying this, but I've been transparent about everything thus far, so here's the latest medical drama. I getting a colonoscopy tomorrow. That involves a lot of "cleansing" this evening, and a lot of I can't eat anything today and tomorrow. Go »

28-V-2010 or The Price

No, this is not about the Twisted Sister song! Although it could be... We will never discuss the price I just paid to get Bon Jovi back on my Rock Block label... Go »

5-XI-2008 or Mentiroso!

Yeah, my espanol is muy malo. I feel like I should just come out and admit that I was probably lying yesterday. I have a habit (preference, actually) for claiming I voted for whoever wins the election, not matter whether it is true or not. Go »

18-VIII-2006 or Are you doing that on purpose?

I keep reading Adrirants, but she's posting them and disabling replies! How can the peanut gallery comment? Maybe that's the point... Go »
