Alan and Angie

Alan and Angie came over last night to watch The Incredibles. I spent the rest of the evening setting up a computer for a near stranger. So I'm about 2 or 3 months away from financial freedom, and I feel like those cheese ball debt consolidation...

Hey so this

Hey, so this morning was awesome. I've been doing pretty well with the whole tooth brushing thing, never skipping a day, but also not brushing too far back for fear of knocking out stitches or something. This morning I risked it a little and brushed...

That was a

That was a nice little vacation, I guess. It hurt less than I thought it would when all was said and done, and I only dipped into my Vicodin twice, both on the first day, and both as a precautionary measure rather than because of the pain. I've spent the...

I must say

I must say, that little operation fucking sucked ass in every conceivable way. I opted for an IV rather than just gas or local, because I'm a huge pussy. The doc assured me I wouldn't feel or remember a thing, but he was mistaken. I was out like a light,...

I put on

I put on my awesome suit last night for the 3rd time ever. I looked HOT. And I don't just mean better than usual either. I was smokin'. I was the first to arrive on the scene and noticed Martini's looked a bit dark as I walked up. That's because it was...

After work on

After work on Friday I went for my little wisdom tooth consultation thingie. I'm bracing myself for the worst, so that hopefully it'll feel like  a non-event when I'm done with the experience. Anyway, so that happens on Thursday. I'm so excited. I...

Just when I

Just when I think I'm getting ahead of the whole debt thing, something happens that blows it. This time, my wisdom teeth that are getting ripped out of my skull a week from yesterday. It will cost me nearly $900. The very same $900 that was going to get me...

I've never felt

I've never felt like such a pathetic, lonely fat man as when I stood in line at Cubs yesterday and looked at what I had just filled my basket with. About 20 different varieties of Lean Cuisine and Healthy Choice microwave dinners (I still don't trust any...

Angie and I

Angie and I watched The Manchurian Candidate last night. I didn't really know what to expect going into the movie. I knew it was a remake of an old movie, and I knew it was sort of political. As a general rule, I stay away from political movies because...

Alright so this

Alright, so, this weekend. It was good. I had fun. Friday was dinner with the usuals at Hofbrau, this time joined by Jill who was a newbie to the Friday night experience. Polk and I got shuffled around a bit and ended up at the bar. On the way out,...

I am up

I am up far too late considering I'm an old man. I ran into a lot of old friends and wonderful people I know and I had a great night. More when I'm not kind of drunk and really flippin' tired. And half sick. PS - choosing between Alan and Polk as my fake...

Just for fun

Just for fun (but with a big payoff at the end), let's recount all the car accidents I've ever been in. It'll be fun. When I was 13 or so, I was riding with my barely 16 year old sister when a guy cut us off. She slammed on her brakes, hit a patch of ice,...

Hey suckers the

Hey suckers, the best cell phone company in the universe, Verizon, is hosting a contest right now called [Get Famous][1]. Basically you make a short 1-3 minute video in any format you want (sitcom, stand-up, music, drama, talk show, etc.), then send it in....

I took the

I took the morning off for a visit to the dentist's office. I'm more scared than I should be about it. This is partly because I haven't been to the dentist in like 8 years and I'm worried I'll have cavaties for the first time in my life. It's also partly...

I spent last

I spent last night working out and cleaning and printing pictures out for decorations. When I saw Wolfie post [Paris Hilton's phonebook,][1] I couldn't resist the temptation to try and call some of them. It was after 9:00 and free, afterall. I wasn't...

Holy crap what

Holy crap, what a weekend. I kicked it off on Friday with a free trip to Red Lobster, compliments of Angie. She went home early to prepare for her vacation and I went over to Alan's and drank beer and watched TV. Saturday I decided my living room and...

I loaded up

I loaded up AIM tonight, only to have it start playng annoying audio with some annoying movie trailer. When I silenced the annoyingness, I was rewarded with a pop up window which crashed IE. And it pissed me off. So I took the leap into [Gaim][1], which...

Okay so my

Okay, so, my diet hasn't been going so well. I'm doing good at skipping snacks and bringing my lunch to work, but I have very little will power when it comes to not going out when people call me. As a result, I went to Hoops last night, but managed to stop...

So I've been

So, I've been sucking at my theme for February too. I weighed in at 22 today, which means in the past 16 days I've gained 6 pounds, lost 8, then gained 2 again. And now I'm back to losing. My nights that I can cheat and eat whatever I want are reserved...

Well Operation Valentine's

Well, Operation Valentine's Day has gone pretty well so far. I got the first round of flowers into Angie's house without her noticing, with a card from her dog that was fairly clever, but I once again pussied out, opting not to go for the "we should date"...
