    Insight on the Croc Hunter
    Did anyone ever stop to think that maybe Steve Irwin was actually murdered by Paul Hogan in a fit of jealousy?

    The Big 3-0
    Guess which movie I saw this weekend!

    If you guessed "none of the above" then you are correct. Instead I spent a lot of time at my sister's in-laws house eating polish food and in my apartment trying to figure out how to use this.

    It's kind of a piece of crap with more RAM than many people's home PCs. The good thing is it's thin and fits in just about any pocket, backpack, or body cavity. My dad, who meant to take it to the Philippines, gave it to me as a birthday present because he couldn't figure out how to use it. So with this gift, I am commissioned to figure out how it works. I'm pretty sure it's not rocket science, seeing as a million schmucks walk around the city with those obnoxious white wires running from their ears, just sending a message to the world that they have something hidden on their bodies that you may just want to steal.

    So the sports world gave me a pretty good birthday present this weekend. For one, the Bulls are in the playoffs, giving me at least another week of basketball to actually care about. This marks the first time the Bulls have had two consecutive playoff seasons since the Mike era.

    Secondly the Cubs won. Hey, I'll take anything from these guys. I was expecting Glendon Rusch to give up six runs in the first inning, but he pitched a pretty good game. The Cubs took 2/3 from the Pirates.

    Oh yeah... the Sox won too. But anyway...

    I still hate clowns
    Have you ever seen a fat kid in eyeliner and black lipstick other than Ethan Suplee in The Butterfly Effect? I have and it's not pretty.

    I have an important choice to make. If I were to see a movie tonight, which would it be? Keep in mind I no longer pay for my account so I am unable to make a poll.

    1. Slither
    It's just another sick disgusting B-movie horror flick that involves killer slugs. No, this isn't a remake of the Son of Svengoolie fodder called Slugs. Instead it's more of an homage to the 80's horror genre. In other words this movie is intentionally shitty, whereas most 80's horror flicks were shitty by accident.

    2. Stay Alive
    If World of Warcraft required you to stay alive or else you would die IRL, then I would never have gotten my money's worth. This movie got such bad reviews from critics and gamers alike, that I want to see it out of curiosity. This is the latest in the whole "modern technology as a gateway for evil" progression. I think it started when I saw Poltergeist. This was followed by films not many people heard of before like Terror Vision and Brainscan. Then we had The Ring, and the ever popular ripoff, fear.com, where we brought terror to the internet?

    3. The Bench Warmers
    Just in time for the baseball season. We're all tired of the whole "underdog kid sports" genre. How about pitting adults vs. a bunch of snotty kids on the baseball field?

    And We're BACK!
    Ok, I'm starting to feel bad, seeing as incendiarymind misses me so much. I read everyone's crap, I just don't post anymore. So yes, I'm pretty much stalking you. I've been playing World of Warcraft way too much, and I guess that's why I don't write anymore. All my brain cells have been killed off in Alterac Valley and Zul'Gurub, and thus I have nothing to share.

    Go Cubs, though! For those who actually care and actually know what I'm referring to, I will be keeping track of the new CF-O-Meter, where I will keep track of the two past and present opening day center fielders of the Chicago Cubs.

    Corey Patterson
    Avg. .100
    Hit 1
    BB 0
    SO 3
    SB 1

    Juan Pierre
    Avg .273
    BB 7
    SO 2
    Hit 6
    SB 0

    As you can see, Corey Patterson, who know plays for the Balimore Orioles, has one more stolen base than Juan Pierre. I guess we really don't know what we're missing, as was the case with Sammy Sosa when HE was traded to the O's.

    Again, I must apologize to the residents of Baltimore for dumping our garbage on you. I'm sure one day you will have the chance to return the favor.

    My kitchen was on fire once.

    I was on the phone with my girlfriend and she was telling me that she was breaking up with me. I was at the kichen sink washing dishes when she told me this. I noticed an orange glow rippling off of the wall in front of me. I turned around to see that a stack of newspapers was unwisely stacked on the kitchen table and had ignited after making contact with a candle.

    I said, "I'll have to call you back later the kitchen is on fire."

    This was about 10 years ago and to this day I don't think she believed me.

    I don't know how to explain it, but this is a pretty good prelude to a rant about the Christmas shopping season. First of all let me point out that I don't care whether people say Christmas or Holidays or Kwanzaa or whatever. All I care about is making it out of the mall alive. It's 11 days until the shopping season ends, which means I will have to get a move-on. This year my family decided to go the grab-bag route since our family seems to be growing bigger and bigger and our pocket books are getting smaller and smaller. This should be easy, but unfortunately I have never seen so much snow in December in my life. It's technically not even winter yet. Driving through slush isn't the ideal way to go, especially when people forget to drive through it while becoming attuned to the summer. Put a little moisture on the ground and people forget how to drive.

    Another thing I hate about shopping around this time is walking around in a crowded department store while wearing full winter garb. I need to move somewhere where I can wear shorts during the holidays.

    So what's new?

    I finally have tabs on my neighbors, not including the cockroaches that allegedly live within the walls. I'm sure there's some poor fellow somewhere in the building who comes home to a nightly dance number by hundreds of German cockroaches. I'm talking about human neighbors. My next door neighbor is a smallish girl who is always wearing pink Cubs apparel. She has a dog who is almost her size. Downstiars lives the attractive nurse. She lives with either of the two men that live in the two units. One of them is a tall clean-shaven man, and the other is rugged and drives a pickup truck.

    As for the roaches, I'm not positive that they exist. I've seen 3-4 in the last six months. If they do live here, then they seem to be leaving me alone. I've upturned furniture and spontaneously switched on the kitchen light, and never have I seen one roach skittering away. It doesn't stop me from being paranoid.

    Also, I made bread for the first time.

    Ding! I just leveled up my cooking skill.

    Disturbing dream # 48293
    The world was invaded by aliens (the 2nd alien invasion dream I've had in a week) and was devided into territories governed by different "alien" cultural groups. The Chicago area was under the rule of sorcerors. By this time I think the alien invasion dream may have ended and this was a completely different dream, but just for the effect let's say this was the same dream. My family is split up, and I'm with my sister, my mother, and my cousin. I found out by looking at a computerized map that there are only two territories that were taken over by the "aliens" and there was one free territory called Darnassus, marked on the map by a gray silver castle icon. I told my family that we have to get to Darnassus so we can be free but nobody wanted to go with me. I got on my mount and made way for Darnassus and after being chased by evil mobs of sorcerors and Devouring Earth* I reached the sea.

    Then I woke up to the Food Network because I left my TV on last night.

    *Devouring Earth are a group of creepy looking bad guys from City of Heroes.

    I'm seriously considering quitting everything and going to culinary school.

    This would be funny if it wasn't me
    I don't care if you believe ADD exists or not, but this pretty much sums up my life.

    My therapist suggested that I schedule specific times do work on certain projects so that I don't put them off, and not use ambiguous phrases like "later", "tonight", or "tomorrow" to designate tasks. Instead I should set specifics like "7:00". I was going to give it a try.

    Two days later, I remembered that I was supposed to make the schedule, but I specified I was going to do it "when I got home", another ambiguous time. I forced myself to make the schedule right then. I jotted down the times and events on a sheet of paper and packed it away in my backpack for safe keeping.

    Two days later while rummaging through my backpack I find the sheet of paper. There was never any follow-through, but instead it was lost in the back of my mind like everything else.

    I told myself I was going to bring the paper to work and make copies and tape them up where I know I will see them. Five hours later I remember the schedule THAT I LEFT ON THE COFFEE TABLE BACK AT MY APARTMENT.

    There are some things ritalin doesn't help with.

    Holy Hell it's back to LJ.
    I'm looking for a new host for my blog since my current host doesn't support the latest version of PHP and they don't allow you to create new SQL databases. So I am moving out of there and looking for a new host. If anyone knows of a good one (possibly with movable type or wordpress already installed) please let me know. I've been busy with my brother's wedding a week ago. I gave a toast speech that made people cry. Why am I cursed with the inherent ability to make people sad?

    Revenge of the Sith comments

    This isn't a review. All I have to say is all you who demand perfection from a science fiction film need to remember that this is science fiction and it will never be Shakespeare in Love or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. There need to be special effects, violence, and muppets. There's some kind of cool new trend to rip on everything George Lucas made because he has delusions of cinematic grandeur. Also, ALL love scenes are stupid an unrealistic, no matter what film you're looking at. If you think people spout poetic romantic lines to each other in real life, then you should get your head checked. But forget the love scenes for a minute. George Lucas gave you what you wanted. Epic battle scenes. A target audience slightly older than the last. Lack of Jar Jar Binks. Explanations and tie-ins to the original trilogy. Violence. I have not heard one bad review that wasn't a result of either a short attention span, an exaggerated attention span, or an aversion to anything Lucas or pop culture. So if anyone truly disliked the film, please indulge me.

    Wal Mart gives me another reason to hate them

    I was trying to avoid Wal-Mart, so Wal-Mart came to me. It was not only in the form of a new store being built close to my parents house, but this was more covert. I was balancing my checkbook this weekend when I noticed my balance was too low. I knew I spent a lot of money on my brother's bachelor party, but this was ridiculous. I checked the balance and noticed a debit of almost $400 charged to my account by Wal-Mart. I tried to remember ever making some kind of debit to Wal-Mart, but I kept returning to the fact that I don't shop there. I had to cancel my saturday morning plans to run to the bank and get an investigation started. It turned out someone wrote a starter check and someone at Wal-Mart accepted the wrong account number. Who the hell accepts starter checks for $400??? I should get the money back in about a week, but who knows what the investigation will turn up. Maybe some redneck got smart and decided to steal my identity because his meth lab wasn't bringing in enough cash.
