age creeping up? general malaise? or sloth?

ok, i don't particularly think that i'm old... yea close to 30, blah blah... but i definitely notice a difference in the amount of time it takes me to recover from any kind of activity out of the normal.. used to be a day or so to recover from a weekend trip back to the parents would suffice... now it takes almost an entire week. I seriously am draggin this week, and know its a direct result of the good times of the wedding. i cant be sure whether its a slower metabolism and therefore an increased rebuild time, or the fact that i just don't do enough to keep myself from getting run down when i do actually try to do something...

problem is, there isn't a lot of motivation from myself or anyone else to break out of the do-nothing attitude. any suggestions or comments? at this point i feel i need to be open to almost any idea...

the boyz

my dinner

MLB attempt #2

mmmmmm yummy

um yeah... enjoy!

a long forgot about website

burn out

or burned out, or exhausted, pick your poison. it was a freaking long weekend and now my sleep schedule is all f'd up. my turkey turned out great, and i got tons of leftovers, i'll be eating it for weeks. only managed to brew up some stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy to go with it... oh and the obligatory ocean spray fresh as ever cranberry sauce from the can. oh well it's all training for the future, you know when some woman comes into the picture and tries to start running my life...

the "hitchin" on saturday was a great time... i havent been shitfaced for a while, and i know some pictures will surface that i will regret having been part of and/or taken. unfortunately i remember some pose with holz and tongues out.... good gravy...

but now the damn weather decides to get all warm and make it impossible for me to get any good sleep. make up your mind earth whether you want to be summer or winter already dammit!

i think im going to try and hide in a book here on my desk and/or pass out... hopefully i dont drool too much..

this will NOT be my dinner...

The one that gets away?

dragon roasted...

so you ask, how do i intend to cook my turkey tomorro... (ha ha and you thought i was going to say do my bird!) well i intend to have trogdor come over and lite me a fire.

TROGDOR? you say


official roaster of all turkeys.... and peasants.

whens gonna be my time lord?

ok so the no road rage thing didnt happen yesterday. and i see a trend of hating septa drivers and passengers more and more each day. they take their jolly old time getting on and off the bus, talk to people on the bus after they get off the bus, and then stand in the street or cross the street in the middle of an intersection during rush hour. and the bus drivers just drive wherever the hell they want, and then try to make turns and block up intersections and expect the other drivers to move because they are too stupid to realize they cant make the turn in the first place. so what is a "respectable" driver to do?

and the calendar says...

the office calendar left at my desk says today is National Stop the Violence Day. So to honor this national day i ask you go and kill as many terrorists and gang-bangers and criminals as you can. Become vigilantes. call yourself batman, or batwoman, even though they don't kill. Together we can end the violence, it will just take some real dedication and lots of blood.

ok, i'm kidding... but what are we really expected to do on one day to stop the violence? do we send all our nuclear weapons into space for superman to hurl into the sun? do we melt all our guns and hand-held weapons?

i'll try to do my part and not get road rage on the way home today... but it'll be hard... those damn septa drivers piss me off daily...

so close.. and yet so far away

for any of you that know stan, he does his best not to swaer. i do my best to be a bad influence and try to use as many f'ing curse words as i can around him. certain times he gets purty pissed... like when i got an email stating our case of heroclix
would take 8-10 days to get here from last thursday... here is the response i got from him...

my 1st pathetic attempt at Monday Leg Blogging (MLB)

I'm a firestarter, wicked firestarter...

So i wake up saturday afternoon.... yes you heard right, it was about 12:30pm.. and i'm shivering when i get out of bed. i hobble my way down the stairs and take a gander at the thermostat... its sitting at 50 degrees F, and i think it would have been lower if 50 was not the lowest it could go. now i like to wait as long as possible to turn on the heat, but even i am not retarded... so i make my way to the basement to fire up the furnace.

i vividly remember having trouble last year getting the damn thing lit... so i'm thinking i'll do everything right this year. rrrrrrrrrrrrrright. i get out the lighter/torch thingy and push the switch to the "set" position (after opening the gas valve) and light the pilot light. all is well i think. wrong. as i try to move the switch to the "on" position, the pilot light keeps going out. grrr. after 3 attempts im getting pissed and cant figure out why the pilot light wont stay lit. so being the "intelligent" person that i am, and realizing that similar actions repeated with the same results are futile... i try and move the swith to the "on" position and then light the pilot light.


oh yeah that puppy lit! and shot a fookin fireball about 2 feet out of the furnace as well.

needless to say i need to wear long sleeves for a while since i singed off a majority of the hair around my wrists, so they no longer match the rest of my fur covered arms.

maybe next year i won't turn the furnace on at all...

oh and in case you are wondering the thermostat is set at a toasty 58 degrees, where it will be all winter, unless i expect company, then i'll think about raising it to 65.

3 day week ... yay!

goble goble goble. thanks to the many turkeys that will donate their lives to our dinner on thursday. we should all have a moment of silence to pay our respects to them................ mmmm now pass the bread, pass the meat, then you sit there and watch me eat. actually you won't... i'll be cooking that big ole bird all for myself.. don't feel bad it's the 3rd year i'm cooking for myself. and 4th year alone (1st yr i was sick as a dog).

so what our your thanksgiving traditions??? ... i know some of you fools drive around to 10 houses and eat a dinner at each... well not literally, but you know...

yay turd-duckens!

that was just for you stan...

Article about madden curse

This years madden cover

so it seems...

that my post from yesterday about benching Mcnabb are going to come true. i heard this morning he underwent an MRI and will not play this week. nothing like wasting a 2nd round draft pick on a guy that plays half the season injured and who knows for the other half... so i guess i might be starting eli or gus this week... which brings me to another thing i heard on the radio yesterday... the john madden curse... whichever guy ends up on the cover of madden football game ends up either injured or having a horrible season... guess who is on this year's cover?...

ah you got it... mcnabb.
last year i think was michael vick... he broke his leg...

you can look up the others... but i am pretty sure whoever ended up on the cover had a craptacular season...

what does this mean for us?

absolutely nothing.


i'm pretty sure none of us will EVER be on the cover of madden.

but... i'll remember to see who's on it next year and avoid them in the fantasy draft...

thanksgiving dinner for lunch at work on thursday! i'm all about eating as many thanksgiving dinners as i can get my hands on... mmm mmm

thanksgiving dinner?

so fo the last few years i been spending thanksgiving alone... and making dinner for myself. usually with the free turkey the local grocery store gives for spending $250 in store in the preceeding weeks. well i almost have my free bird again, but last year i started to debate whether one of these might make a better dinner. http://www.cajungrocer.com/product_info.php?cPath=15_24&products_id=340

has anyone tried one? any reviews? how about a deep fried turkey? i'm not against trying something new...especially when it's only me that will be disappointed if it tastes horrible or is a disaster like the turkey from christmas vacation that deflates and is "a little dry"

star wars episode 1/2 yoda

they told me they fixed it!

it's not my fault! i can't get wmmr to stream, so since i can't listen to preston and steve this morning... i will unleash the christmas music 2 and 1/2 hrs early!


no sleep last night...

so i hop in bed around midnight and just layed there till at least 2:30am... couldn't fall asleep at all.. no idea why. usually i lay down and am out, dead cold, like a stone until the alarm goes off. so i guess i got a little sleep at some point, but woke up in a daze this morning... so since i was feeling weird/seeing weird things take a look at these...

ARRRR...... Ninja vanish!


read page 2... brian green talks about pirates AND ninjas!

wow... work?!

i actually started my training for the new job yesterday... i figured at the end of the day... well... it'll be another week before i do anything else.. but NO.. lo and behold... more training today... bout damn time... if i get to set in that lazy attitude i'll never break it.

oh and the christmas music is rollin again today...


because some dork wrecked on the main highway into philly last night i spent an hour and a half making my way home on a trip that usually takes 30-35 mins... and we're talking about 10pm!!! there is no rush hour traffic!!!

this morning i am 5 or less miles from work... and it took me 45 mins to get to work from that spot on my route.

I HATE bad drivers! I can't stand a*holes that drive along side the row of cars patiently waiting and then EXPECT to be let in front of you. What gives you the right to do that? Does your shyte not stink? Are you balls made of steel? Please tell me...why exactly should I just let you in while I sat there 20 mins and waited my turn...

And why do roads just get totally shut down if there is an accident that involves more than 2 vehicles around here?????????


today is not shaping up to be a good day and its 8am.

No need to argue....

Parents just don't understand.

So i make one of my 4 or 5 trips back out to visit the parental units this past weekend, and my dad worked me to death. had i not slept in till noon on saturday im fully convinced i would have been working all day. i mean its bad enough i work an 8 hour day and then drive 5 hours after work to come see them, so usually saturday i'm beat. dad decides he wants to work on his new carport and "winterize" it. GREAT. so me and my bro stand then and get verbally berated while holding this stupid piece of siding up for about 3 hours till the old man gets it how he wants it. after that he wants to check my car out and make sure its ready for winter.... MY car... that I own.... grrrrr. and just after lunch and before i head back on sunday he asks me to help him straighten out some shrub that the snow bent over last winter... well the "shrub" is 10 ft tall and against a wall which made it near impossible to move... not to mention im sore from the previous days' work and cant push damn trees back into place. from now on trips home will have to be un-announced and then maybe i can avoid the "drudgery".

if u excuse me now i'll be asleep for the rest of the week...

I Find This Hilarious


my dvd collection


u have to be a registered imdb user to see it i think.

im kind of disappointed in it, because all the series dvds only count as one (highlander, smallville, etc) and u can't put multiple copies or different versions of movies in the list...

but nontheless, u can see im a movie/dvd freak.


so i've been playing this MMORPG (massively multi-player online role playing game) called star wars galaxies for almost 2 years... the game developers keep changing the game to try and make it "better." well now they are going to basically cut their work load to 1/4 of what it was by taking 32 or so professions and cram them into 9. ok so MAYBE they will actually be able to do some good stuff for the game... i have stuck with it basically because of the friends i made in game and because of the star wars content... now it is basically being "ported" into a console cookie cutter kids game. I'm going to sound like an old timer but all the stuff it took me a year and a half to do to get a jedi in game made me feel like i accomplished something... now anyone can just choose to start as a jedi... oh well..
