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"...

Well it's Valentine's

Well, it's Valentine's Day. The day for happiness and love and, yes, even friendship. Let's not lose sight of that "friendship" factor, even when you're desperately single like Wolfie and feeling like crap because of it. Even without someone to cuddle with...
