Free (liquor) Samples
I went grocery shopping today. I keep forgetting that grocery stores in Illinois an sell liquor. Today Jewel took it to the next level by giving out free samples of said liquor. Yes, an old lady definitely gave me a shot of rum by the yogurt display on this fine Sunday afternoon.
I went to a "mizzou bar" last night.
This place put an ad in the Onion saying they were going to show all the mizzou football games. So I went with some friends for the season opener last night. This place is a fake Irish bar and a fake Mizzou bar. The owner told us, “yea, I wanted to pick a team that doesn’t have a bar around here, and Mizzou seems like they’ll be pretty good this year.” We didn’t...
I got a "new" bike today.
From a guy off craigslist. He gave me a good deal. Such a good deal that if I didn’t like the bike so much, I’d turn around and double my money. But the guy I bought it from grew up in Charlotte. We had a discussion about Dell Curry. Weird.

I wanna see him, his fam and cabinet do a soul train line to this in the oval office after he wins.
Please be smarter than this, America.
A female, pro-life, moose hunting mother of five from a small town in the midwest. Coming up with her is like Political Madlibs.
The Mexican grocery store is great.
It’s a block away. The produce is fresh and cheap. They have a crazy bakery. But most of all, they have Kinder Eggs. They’re supposed to be illegal! The Mexicans said, “Fuck you, FDA. Our kids are smart enough to not eat plastic.” Except they probably said it in Spanish.
How do these people not get it?
Okay. You like Hillary Clinton. That’s fine. But when you wanted her to be President, were you voting because of her policies or because you like her as a person? If you chose the former, then why the fuck would you turn around and give your vote to someone whose views are completely opposite to hers? If you chose the latter, I guess I can’t really help you. This country...
Why I use Tumblr
I really like the format of this blog. There aren’t any comments, timestamps, viewcounts or anything. It’s just a blank slate for me to keep track of all the random stuff I see or think at a given moment. For some reason, whenever I used Typepad or Wordpress, I felt obligated to make well thought-out posts with witty commentary. But not here. It’s pretty much...
I like advertising.
See what I mean?
She respects his maverick? wtf does that mean? Now whoever he picks as a running mate has to be referred to as Goose. I hope it’s Rudy.
This election is going to be ridiculous.
I mean, Daddy Yankee is endorsing John McCain. I just hope he releases “drill for mas gasolina” as a promo single. Wait, no I don’t.
I wouldn't mind having one of these

As soon as I walked in, all I could think was, “look at all the silly words!” As soon as I walked out, all I could think was, “why did i eat those meatballs.” At least I have a desk and chairs, now.
Beer is Good.
Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat my favorite beer. I think it’s the first beer I ever purchased. They make it in Kansas City, and unfortunately, they don’t sell it in Illinois. But when Meggin came up with her moving truck, she brought a ridiculous amount of it. I mean really, she stocked up. She asked her dad to get her a case at Sam’s Club and he brought her four. Seriously, I...
Craigslist is ridiculous

Yesterday I was driving to a meeting, and I saw a group of kids trying to cross the street about 10 yards away from an intersection. The smallest (and presumably youngest) of them was carrying a grocery bag from the corner store. He ran ahead of the other kids and was about to step into the street when an older kid, whom I assume was his brother yelled at him. As the younger kid turned to see...
this is brilliant.

Rhythmic Gymnastics, son.
Working from home is pretty sweet. It would be even better if I wasn’t stealing internet and had cable. I’m sittin’ here writin’ bout paint, eatin’ top ramen and watchin’ rhythmic gymnastics on a snowy tv. livin’ the dream.
Stop ruining everything I love.
When I was a kid, the NBA was the most important thing in my life. When Charlotte got a basketball team, I was 4 years old. When I was in kindergarten, the new team was desperate to build a following and had its players visit elementary schools in the city all the time. It got to a point where I remember not being very excited to see Muggsy Bouges. But the Hornets’ owner, George Schinn,...
This was my shit.

So, I'm moved.
And let me tell you, they have some class acts working on this apartment. the door in the utility room can’t open or close all the way because of strategically placed pipes. there is a window sans blinds, at ground-level mind you, in our shower. and for some reason, they dug a hole outside my window today and put the fence back upside down.
Pass it down. Pass it down!
I haven’t seen this in about ten years.
I went to a family reunion yesterday.
Normally, Thanksgiving serves as my family reunion. But yesterday I went to Niles, Michigan for the official one. I had never been to one before, and hadn’t been back to Niles since my grandmother’s funeral in ‘05, so it was nice to see everyone again. All day, people kept asking me where my wife and daughter were. At first I thought they were all playing a joke, but after a...
Yea, that's pretty Awesome.
You know, this is probably why I moved here.
It's a Good Thing This Isn't Real.
Otherwise I’d be led to believe that all of Batman’s enemies just sat around scribbling on newspaper clippings. But while the Riddler probably is the most logical villain to be in the next movie, I still think they should go with The Eraser. The Eraser was a guy that would “erase” all traces of a crime for a cut of whatever money was made. I guess he’s more...
I like Manny Ramirez.
But I don’t think I’d like him in my team’s outfield. Yesterday Soriano went into a homerun trot after hitting what should have been a double. He only made it to first base. That one isolated incident was pretty frustrating to me, and I can’t imagine what it would be like to deal with that two, three times a week… like they did in Boston. As much as I hate ESPN...
I miss these guys.
I'd be concerned if something went right.
Because as of right now, nothing has. I’m supposed to move into my apartment on Friday. The basement flooded over the weekend, so now the wood floors have to be replaced. This was after my move-in date was pushed back from the 1st to the 15th.
I saw a play today.
A friend of mine is in town for a while with a playwriting group. or something. I’m not really sure. All I know is he wrote a play about pro wrestling. That’s what I watched today. It was pretty awesome. Then I had a cheeseburger with a fried egg on top.
Carolina Panthers: Superbowl XXXVIII Champions
Because it just wouldn’t be right to dislike John Kasay, I have hated the New England Patriots ever since 2003. So while this year’s Superbowl was mildly satisfying to me, these guys took their hate to another level. They could have at least given that woman more than five bucks.
Electric Avenue. Again.
I saw Pineapple Express tonight. Electric Avenue plays during the opening credits, and I was the only person in the theater who found that amusing.

It Would Probably Clear Up a Lot of Confusion
If cars had two horns: a “good sound” and a “bad sound.” I mean, it’s kind of silly that same tone is supposed to be able to convey, “Oh hi, buddy!” and “You dumb motherfucker, i’m going to fucking kill you.”
My life is like a bad sitcom.
On Saturday, my cousin dropped his kid’s goldfish off so I could take care of it over the weekend. I asked him what the fish’s name was, and he said “I don’t know.” Today when I got back home, I found Ida Know floating upside down in his bowl. Now I have to go Brady Bunch it up and buy another goldfish that looks like this one.

This is both incredible and depressing. But I can’t decide if it’s incredibly depressing or depressingly incredible.
During what was either my freshman or sophomore year at Mizzou, I listened to a lot of college radio. I’d just leave my little transistor radio on all day tuned to 88.1. There was one guy who had a reggae show that started right when I got back to my dorm room after class on Tuesdays. So for one semester, I’d call 882-8262 at the same time every Tuesday and request...
Today was a big day.
I got a new hat, a ticket to see Beck in October, six of those great pens from Chicago Apartment Finders, a can of soda with a muscleman on it, and an apartment.
I did a kickass track stand today.
At an intersection on my way home from the train station after work. I’m just mad that nobody who would appreciate it was around to see.
