I was at Target today working, and they were giving me crap. My co-worker thinks one of the other employees was hitting on me (she totally wasn't), and she's been telling people about how funny she thinks it is. Well, anyway, my immediate superior comes up to me, and he's patting me on the back, and he's razzing me, and he says, "C'mon, playa! What's up? I didn't know you had such game." And I respond, (in my most faux-cocky badazz ebonics...which is extremely bad) "Sheeeeeeeeeeeet! I got so much game, they be callin' me Milton Bradley!" Such peals of laughter have never been heard at Target before, and possibly never again! :)

I think I made the situation worse, but I had one of my rare funny moments, and I had to do it!!

I have to get up early! Gotta go. OH! Song of the day...two songs today, because it's a holiday.

1) Black No. 1 by Type O Negative. Such fake goth vampiric metal goodness is most appropriate for Halloween. Plus, I am still scarred from being forced to see the Playgirl pictorial of Peter Steele. :( And, having just now read the Wikipedia entry, good old Peter has converted to Christianity. OK, right there, either the world is soon to end, or Wikipedia is wrong. That's gotta be misinformation!

2) Stutter by Elastica. After having chose my birthday band to enter Rock Block, I found the cd in my collection. Oh my God, I forgot about these lovely ladies! (OK, the drummer's a dude, but he contributes nothing but drums and puke noises) If no one else takes them by next September, they're in! This is an awesome song. I love Elastica. I totally miss them. The Menace was such a bad album. If you want to hear good Elastica, stick with the self-titled first album. Oh! So nice!

6-IV-2007 or I am so high, I can see heaven.

That has got to be the worst line from the worst theme song in movie history (IMNSHO)! It's so bad, it's the song of the day! "Hero" by Chad Kroeger (Nickleback lead singer) and Josey Scott (Saliva lead singer), from the movie Spiderman. Go »

1-IX-2006 or TT4N!

Well, this will be the last time I blog here until 9/18 or so, when I will be back from vacation. Barring a European internet cafe, or some such nonsense. (How does one get the little accent on the e? Go »

Today or What? I'm Drunk!

No, really. I was cleanign my fish tank. It has a bad bacteria bloom, probably because I feed the fish too much to be honest. Go »

10-VII-2006 or Thinking too hard

I'm thinking too hard about it. I'm letting my fears get the best of me. I need to relax and just deal with things from a position of confidence, not weakness. Go »

22-XII-2008 or I am dumb.

Funny story (only it's not)! My wife was running in a 5K race for the inaugural magicjack.com Saint Petersburg Bowl (I love those corporate tie-ins!), Go »

14-VII-2009 or Oh. Didn't I Mention That??

Ha! I just saw the funniest thing, but I shouldn't make mention of it, since it involves images of me online on Youtube cursing and being a total dick. It's real funny, but of course, if I speak of it, or name the event, then everyone will see me being a weirdo, and they might think that's really how I roll. Go »
