Harold & Kumar

Went and saw Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle last night. And I agree with both of the local reviews...it's not gonna win an Oscar, but for a stoner road trip movie, it's hysterical. And it really reached out to me despite only getting stoned once and never having actually eaten at a White Castle.

There are different scenes that definitely remind me invidually of Uch, Gusto, and of course El Thundre. I hope they see it soon so I can discuss with them.

Remember that scene, when Flanders finally flipped out?

That's how Clubber feels. Work, well, work. I feel like I'm mere hours from exploding like some Italian volcano in ancient times.

My, how the mighty have fallen.....

Interesting news item I came upon this morning.....

"In West Hartford, Conn., three years after O.J. Simpson was acquitted, renowned lawyer Johnnie Cochran defended two rottweilers accused of barking too much, but he lost the case. Cochran represented his friend Flora Allen (mother of basketball player and actor Ray Allen), whose dogs were the subject of numerous barking complaints, but he failed to persuade a judge to lift a 9 p.m. outdoor curfew on the dogs."

I like how the article said Ray Allen was an actor. That's like saying Allen Iverson is a rapper.

Here's one I thought that might interest my partner, as it deals with one of his beloved, straight from ESPN.

Catching Up With Clubber

I'm currently watching an episode of The Equalizer...guest starring none other than you know, a funny looking guy and the coach of the Adams Atoms. If this isn't 80's, I don't know what is.

Just got back from working the Man U.-Bayern game. God I'm glad I didn't pay to go to that game. Patheticly boring 0-0 game, won by Bayern in PK's.

Played golf on Friday with Gusto and Thundre...shot poorly...130 for those of you scoring at home...still addicted...need more. Beat Gusto by a stroke, got killed by Thundre. Had ?dinner with the boys and the wives Friday night...I wonder if we'll ever see one friend again...sigh.

Oh and I got a doctor's bill in the mail...from four years ago. I don't even remember seeing this doctor. Is there a statute of limitations or something

Hey, no towels man!

Sorry I've been quiet.  Work's been for sucks lately.
 
Two random thoughts I wanted to share for posterity that no one cares about.
 
First...I've become addicted to golf.  I played a little in high school, but I decided this summer that I wanted to be a credit to my race.  I've played 3 times already and I can't stop.  It's like crack.  Expensive and addicting.  And I'm getting better...I've gone from 134 to 125 to 116.  If I keep playing look out, Tiger.
 
Second...had my first screaming nightmare since I was a kid the other night.   I dreamt I was back in my family home and while I was sleeping, my two stepbrothers decided to attack me.  I dreamt they were getting near my bed and I rolled over to defend myself.  In doing so, my arm hit my wife, and thinking it was one of them, I hit her and started screaming.  Needless to say I freaked the shit out of her, not to mention myself.  Man, I'm turning into Bushwick Bill.


Got some pictures back from the big weekend......

Thought you may want to see them!
 
this is all of us in the pool, enjoying the crystal clear water......

here's what Dr. Feelgood did most of the weekend, god bless his little heart!

It was so HOT during the weekend! Here we are BEFORE we played 18..........and here's what we looked like after 4 plus hours in the sun and heat and humidity!

Here's another one of Dr. Feelgood, in one of his better moods......

Here's what Clubber, Thunder and I lived on during the weekend....

....and here's what the good doctor enjoyed one of

Hope you enjoyed the slide show!!!

4 Posts In One Day!

But this one I couldn't resist

RBI Baseball Lives

RBI Baseball kicked ass. We spent WAY too much time playing this our freshman year, complete with a prize belt that was passed around as champions were defeated (OK, so it was a highly decorated paper plate...details).

Now, apparently I can figure out a way to play it on my PC. And get totally whacked on the drinking game in the process.


What's next? Blades of Steel?

Soccer and Uch's Girlfriends

From Greg Lalas on his weekly MLS commentary

It's kind of like this: In the European leagues, you've got four Keira Knightleys and 14 Ally Sheedys. Even if Keira has a bad hair day and shows up unshowered and wearing a Hanson t-shirt, you're still going try your luck with her before you settle for Ally. Right? Right. On the flipside, MLS is a bunch of midlevel beauties, Selma Blair, Sandra Bullock, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and the like. None of them are stunning but you wouldn't throw any of them out of bed for eating crackers. However, if Sandra Bullock shows up at Starbucks hungover and puffy-eyed and Selma Blair shows up in a little black dress, odds are Selma gets the nod. (Unless you like the I-was-out-late-and-puked look, in which case, more power to you.) Next time, the roles might be reversed, and Sandra will win your heart.

That's what parity does. It makes every MLS game that much more important because even the slightest discrepancy in performance from week to week, even minute to minute, might mean the difference between a glorious one night stand with Keira Knightley and an uncomfortable breakfast with Ally Sheedy.

Fuck

Apparently my alma mater continues to swim downward.

Just what I needed to hear about today

My mind's playing tricks on me

Every 6-12 months I have a dream that I'm back in college, and finals are coming up, and I've forgotten everything I learn. Mind you, I've been out of college for nearly 10 years now.

Well, last night I had a modified version of the dream...I was in high school this time. Same concept. People I knew in high school, I was asking them what classes I had taken that semester so I could cram. And then I started cramming. Eerie.

But, I got just over 11 hours of sleep last night, which was choice. I need to be well-rested to get over the fact that the 11:30 AM Saved By The Bell has been dropped by TBS. Unacceptable.

Dr. Feelgood

MC Gusto's pad for a little pool, cigars, BBQ and golf!

It's just too bad

Can

Uch

couldn't go, or we'd have the whole posse here! I can't wait!!!!

I'm such a sentimental sap...

...been at work today and had Rock Fest on AMC. Watched Rocky III, then IV, then V, and just finished I, where, for the 18th consecutive time, I started to tear up during rounds 14 and 15. If there's a better piece of cinema than Round 14 of the Creed-Balboa fight in Rocky I, I haven't seen it.

Alas, I've had to pass on Rocky II to watch the Sox-Cubs game.
