Beer is good for you....

I am at about beer seven, typing while intoxicated is not yet punisable by law but the wife can make one hell of a law in forced.

But she is in Virgina and I am all alone in my boxers staring at this idiot box trying to figure what I should do with all this free time. The only thing I could come up with is drinking beer until I feel the urge to go swimming nude in the back yard. I feel that momment is cumming up fast so I think I need to do to bed soon. I have to work tommorrow so getting to drunk would not be wise, but then again being wide has never been one of my strongest virtues

But to be honest I am about to go to sleep and it is beerr # 11 and I am assed out......later.....

Rock on..better to burn out than to fade away..and have your ashes fired out of a cannon!

Caught here in a fiery blaze, won't lose my will to stay.
These eys won't see the same, after I flip today.
I tried to drive al through the night, thhhe heat stroke ridden weather, the barren empty sights.
No oasis here to see, the sand is singing deathless words to me.
Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (all alone)
Too many doses and I'm starting to get an atteraction.
My confidence is leaving me on my own (all alone)
No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention.
As I adjust to my new sights the rarely tired lights.Will take me to new heights.
My hand is on the trigget and I'm ready to ignite.
Tomorrow might not make it but everything's all right.
Mental fiction follows me; show me what it's like to be set free.
So sorry you're not here I've been sane too long my vison's so unclear.
Now take atrip with me but don't be surprised when things arn't what they seems.
Sometimes I don't know why wed rather live than die, we look up towards the sky.For answers to our lives.
We may get some solutions but most just pass us by, don't want your absolution.
'Cause I can't make it right.
I'll make a beast out of myself, gets rid of all the pain of being a man.
So sorry you're not here I've been sane too long my vision's so unclean.
Now take a trip with me but don't be surprised when things arn't what they seem.
I've known it from the start all these good ideas will tear your brians apart.
Scared but you can follow me I'm too weired ta live but much too rare ta die.
(Avended Sevenfold)
This is song written by the band Avenged Sevenfold that was dedicated to the late Hunter Thompson. The video is trippy as hell and even has a celeberty look alike-Rodeny Dangerfield. Got to love it! If you ever get a chance look them up and look up writtings on Thompson. But a bit of a warning, when you read his material you have to be a bit off to get it ;-P

On topic...

If anyone can read this and not feel a little ill they have not read the same quote that I did. The more I read about our history and what has happened the more I see repeat mistakes. Hell it was Hitler who started the gun registry. This way he know who had them and where they would be when he decide to do what he did. Anyone else feel that they are less than free?

Seaman of the high seas....well maybe just high.

This weekend my brother in law came home from the Navy, he will not be back for 6 months. He is shipping out to the gulf this Thursday. Soooo with that said he came home and did what any good hearted American man of the military would do, he drank himself into oblivian.

I found him in the back yard with nothing on but his white Navy issued boxers. I was worried that he might have tried to climb in the pool and die like a rock star. But he was not quiet able to navigate the unlevel ground in the back yard let alone get the ladder up.
I was able to bring him around for a few seconds to get him to smile.
But it was short lived.
We went out the next night and he did learn a little from the previous night and only had a few beers. But let us hope these are not the people behind the buttons of mass destruction. Because a hung over seaman could be one bad mother-fucker to piss off.


I'm In The NAVY!

People who can work with their hands....


Today at work I was informed by one of my many minions that there was a screw in the front tire of the company truck. Upon my inspection I concluded that yes, it was a screw and it was in the tire. From past experiences I knew not to remove the object. I called around to see who would not rape me sideways while running to plug it. The Good-year wanted freakin 30$ and the local Exxon garage only wanted 10$. Hmmmmm, guess where I went.
If you guessed Good-year not only are you stoopid you deserved to be tea bagged by an unwashed gorilla. I went to the local garage and got the better deal.
Now, I love watching people work with their hands because I am such a spaz when it comes to stuff like this. Bob Veal-la fascinates me with his ability to walk about home improvement projects without actually doing anything and he is the star. Hell I could do that lol. Back to Exxon, I pulled up and the garage man told me to park it and turn the wheel as far to the left as possible and get out. Then he proceeded to pull out the screw, a long hissing noise of escaping air followed. He stuck a tool into the hole that probably has some cool gearhead name but being a car retard like me I'll call it a thing-a-ma-bobber. He did this several times, it looked like he was trying to make the hole bigger! And guess what, he was. He then pulled out another tool, this one kinda looked like a push dagger with a huge sewing needle as the blade. He threaded a rubber something-or-rather through it, put some glue looking stuff on it. He then proceeded to pull out that unknown tool from the hole and shoved his giant man needle into the hissing whole. He then pulled out his greasy tool leaving the rubber what-cha-ma-call it protruding from the whole. The run away air hole was plugged and all that was left to do was cut the excess from the rubber thingy that was now jutting out of the tire.
10$ and ten minutes later I was a pulged man with a worry. Now why in the hell did Good-year wanted soo much I have no idea. I am thinking of buying a tire plug kit for myself. That plus a can of Fix-A-Flat just in case I muff it up. The odds are the can of Fix-A-Flat will be empty before I am a tire plugging expert.

Rant one....

I like to ramble about much of nothing most of the time. It keeps me entertained as I mull about at work. Pondering anything, everything and half the time much of nothing. Today's thoughts have landed on writing and how one could turn it into a career and money. I am not looking to becoming a staving artist who cares about keeping real journalism alive or change the world through my words. Fuck that, if I can make money writing bullshit about celebrities I would do it. The idea of truth in journalism has been dead and it was burned and buried when Bush took office. Made up propaganda to scar you into allowing all your freedoms to be taken. "Yes, I think letting the president do whatever he thinks is the right way to protect me is ok." Anyone who thinks this, will change their tune when the powers that be turn their ever watchful eye on to you. Everyone is a multiple felon that has yet to be caught. Ever run a red light, buy a faux pocket book, know someone who has fake documents to stay in the USA, drive without insurance(in NJ) or known a drug dealer/user and turn them in? These are some of the small things that could cause you much grief if the great eye in the sky ever knew about you.
So yes please put cameras everywhere so you can send my tax paying ass to jail on infractions on the law and keep those who need a bullet to the head running free. They are not here to protect us, just to watch the video after the fact and write up reports on your sorry ass. How often is a crime stopped before it happens? Protect yourself and stop waiting to be saved. Even God Himself will not help those who don't at least try to help themselves.
I am just tired of reading the news about the government and their pathetic attempts at our safety. Its like giving aspirin to cancer patients, it is too little too late. We are in this war for the long hall and the terrorist can strike us anywhere at anytime with anything. The press releases form the whitehouse gave us a list of all the possible ways they can attack and with what. This way if they do all the whitehouse has to say is, " Look we told you so." Well thanks, don't close the borders and tighten REAL security but let us have press conferences and point fingers. And let us not forget to cateer these events with champage and lobsters.
Its is soo frustrating not being able to do anything but write pointless emails to senators that could careless. All they want to hear is when it is time to vote themselves a raise and cry the price of living as a reason. That is another can of monkey shit I don't care to go into.
But what can one true blooded American do to change the snow balling events that are only getting worse? Cannot vote him out, he is on his last term. He has been on vacation the first 4 why not just stay the same course? Maybe I could just turn off the TV and not read the paper for a few years. Then maybe just maybe when I come out of my cave it will all be better, like back in the days when the government lied to us and we believed it all."9 out of 10 doctors prefer Camel smokes over any other brand!" Smoke to your health :-D

Saturday at Fridays...

On the way to one of our favorite eateries we noticed the Hooters in Springfield(rt22) was having a fire problem. There were 2 fire trucks and all the Hooter's guest and Girls were outside wandering about. I am curious to what happened but to hungry to go over and ask.














On we went to TGIF with the mother in law and the baby. No real reason, just for shits and giggles. It was not too crowded as of yet but it was still early. I hate going to resturants when its dead, because the food comes out too damn slow. And that is when you probably will end up with a trainee without a clue on how to place your order. I also hate going when its too busy. Then you will probably get the food cooked wrong and with a bit of luck you could get the angry waitress who has been there all day and she is about to kill someone.














Here we are right before I went into a food comma. I had not eaten anything that day and by the time I left all plates were cleaned of food. We had about a 10 minute wait nothing to bitch about....except this....The kid at the table nest to us decided to vomit all over the table as he was leaving. Yummy, looks about the same digested too! Thank god for iron clad stomaches!














The baby is a true fan to the sippy cups they give out. May outfits have been saved by these locked and sealed tops. God I love the man who invented plastic! And also have to give props to the man who came up with the non-toxic cryaon. Man, it was hard when all kiddie toys were toxic back in the day.














This burger looks sooo nasty but they have got to have some of the best burgers around. I love any and all meats with the TGIF's Jack Daniells sauce! Looking at this pic now I am salavating like dog! Sorry...another day with little food at work lol.














Now as I said before, I cleaned all the plates. I had the chips and dips, which I LOVE the chesse dip that comes with two other dips. Next time I am going to as for all three to be cheese. For the main entree I had the 2 enchillads and chicken, which is one of my favorites. The mother in law had a beer on tap but I stayed beer free. Mainly because for the price of 2 beers here I can get 12 at my local happy store. What can I say, I am a cheap drunk!

Home Gym

Well come to my home gym, it is located in the dank basement of my home. This is where I go to try and fend off the onset of man boobs and the male pregnancy belly. It is not much but it is more than most of the body building ledgends had in the hay day of Venice beach.
As I said it is very moist and dank. The humidity down here is the disgusting and what makes it worse is the horrific smell. Anything that stays down here for more that a few hours will have the odor cling to it. But the funny thing about this smell is whenever I smell this funkiness, my heart goes into workout mode. I am pre-programmed to work out the moment I smell this rank.
This has been an off and on obsession of mine. And now that the wife has gotten on the excrsie kick I am back on. Summer might be almost over but we have a cruise comming up soon and we have to look good then lol. We are trying to get into shape so we can eat and drink ourselves into a stooper for 5 days straight. It's the only way, if we go there out of shape we will come away in worse shape. At least this way we will have to really hit them buffets hard as a porn star, seconds from the money shot to get out of shape! And hell the boat has several gyms and a deck for running. Run off that midnight buffet and all day open bar lol.
I used to work out with the bro in law down here but he left for the navy and I was left to fend for myself. Working out alone can be disheartening and borning. But we all have a wall to climb to achieve our goals. I refuse to become complacent and fat at 29 years old. I see all of these ppl my age, and younger, that look pregnant and I refuse to be another fat father at my kids soccer game talking about the good old days when I could run and/or see my penis.
My energy levels are not what they once where so it is increasingly becoming harder to stay fit. But for everyone's sake I must not become the fat hairy white male that is in my genes. I am in denial and refuse to except that you have to be nasty and out of shape when you get older. Let all this lazy mofo's get pudgy and shiftless. I will be the grand pa who can still keep up with the kids and then some. That is why you don't abuse drug till you get old. A good heart and body can help you counter act the side effects. Ice (meth, crank) can make you just as hyper as little Johnny and run just as fast as that little nose picker can.

Oil change for the beast.

I finally got around to getting the oil changed in the beast I call my car. I was driving to my usual lube place when I saw this little gem tucked away in a small town called Westfield.




The look of a man doing a mans work,
paying someone else to get a dirty job done!








You cannt really see the name on the door to well from this angle so let me tell you it. "Mr. Good Lube" With a name like that I had to stop! And not to mention that there was only on person in front of me and they claimed to have me in and out in 10-15 minutes. Let us see if they can hold up their claim shall we. I walked in the door at 3:36.........





Looks like rain!








As I sat waiting for my lube job I sat listing to news radio. It was rather boring until I heard that 8 people have died in the past two days due to a bad batch of herion. Then I didnt want to move in fear that I might miss out on some of the fun details. As it turned out most of them were just the regular garden variety junkies, but two were different. These two die over the weekend and were part of the upper middle class white valley girls who never did drugs or drank. Fuck yeah ok ! Most people dont start their road to sin with one of the most powerfull drugs on the street! They were party girls and if they were not herion users then, this was their cherry breaker and they got the fuzzy end of the lolly pop. It could have been worse I guess, they could have continued it and ended up like this.....



Smoking leads to beer, beer leads to hard liquor, liquor leads to pot, pot leads to shrooms, shrooms lead to acid, acid leads to herion, and herion leads to meth. And we all know where meth leads to....thats right, sucking dick for ROCKS!





Her is a view from my crotch to the front desk.




Free coffe!








As you can see the price of oil changes has shoot up just as the gas has. I still remeber seeing signs for 16 bucks for a lube, damn it! Well....as it turns out they had me out the door in 12 minutes flat. Cutting it close there grease monkey man. I left with 12 minutes missing from my life and $43.63 missing from my bank account.
A mans work is never done!

5) I am proud of all my scars and hope for more before I die.

6) I smoked for about 7 years, but gave it up not long after I met my second wife. She hated the smoke and I was ready to start anew. The other reason was for my ever growing distaste for the smell. The smell was really bothering me, to the point that when smokers walked by me the odoriferousness of them made me sick to my stomach.

7) I love to exercise, a life long passion to strain to the limits of my own vanity.

8) The number one food that I hate...Lentils. Nasty dirt hippie food.

13) Never been to a Go-Go bar. Even though in the part of NJ that I live in there is one every other block. I hate being bugged for money and hell, I will not surrender my hard earned money for nothing but a set of blue balls and a angry wife lol.

14) All for the death penalty. You kill someone their family should be allowed to kill you back.

15) I think Janeane Garofalo is hot!

16) I hate, loath, deride, spurn and abhor both Spiderman movies. I love the comic but Hollywood did a true disjustice to this story. The script was slapped together by fecal flinging monkeys and the acting, God the acting! If anyone says the acting in those movies was even ok needs to be shown what real pretending is like. Watch Scareface or hell Forest Gump even! I have seen better acting in cheap 70's porn movies.

17) Favorite color is black.

25) Never been to Hawaii and have no ambition to go there.

27) I am 6'2 and 220lbs and looking to lose a little weight. I was 150lbs in high school for funk sakes. Mind you I looked like I was in much need of a sandwich but still 70 lbs is still alot!

28) Hunter S. Thomson is one of my favorite writers and I wish I had the insight to write as he did.

29) I love camping but never get to do it as much as I would like.

30) I believe in reincarnation.

31) I have kept a journal since I was 19. My last one was stolen when my car got taken for a joy ride. It was the one thing I hoped would still be there when they called and told me they found the car. My work bag (black leather), radio(brand freakin new kenwood), CD's, and some other random crap was taken. I now have an alarm, the CLUB and I bring everything in with me whenever I leave the car alone.

39) I have had gay men hit on me , each and everyone was at a straight bar. Go figure.

40) I am not homophobic, I entertained the thought as a young adult but realized the pudanda was what I wanted. So to celebrate this I popped my fav video with a gal getting the dueling swordsmen treatment from 2 dudes. And was comfortable with their hacky sacks in plain view :-D lol.

41) I like to fish but I am no good at it. Half the time the bait is bigger than the actuall fish I catch.


And I think I will stop here for the moment. I know it is not complete but work is calling and my eyes are starting to get fuzzy from staring at this stupid thing for so long. I will continue this shorty........................

Mid Week Giggle.

Today is just alot of random nothing-ness. Not much to bitch about in my world too much to bitch about world wide so I just thought I would post up a few things I have found on line that has given me a chuckle.

#1, We have the drive by mullet family from the 80's. If anyone knows who these people are please let them know that this pic has been all over the net for worst mullets ever caught on tape.



















#2, A ride that only a fool or a sexual deviant would jump on. But I do love the look on the girl on the right. She sure looks like she got her moneys worth on this ride.















#3, I wanted to get one of these for our baby but the wife kept thwarting my attempts. They are soo oblivious to our dark sides lol.



















4#, Elmo loses his innocents to the evil blue Grover. I always new he was the naughty one of the bunch. Bert and Ernie were always the center of attention because of their bathtub antics, but the true perv was right under their noses.

Camping 2005-August

We took all the kids out to the woods for a camping expedition and boy did THEY have fun. We used our new tent for the first time and was some what happy with it. It did not have the separate compartments we thought it had but it served its purpose. The second tent is the first tent we ever bought and her Naval officer brother-Seaman Douglas P.-(hehehehe I said seaman lol! ) used that one. It looks small from the outside but is very roomy on the inside. Especially if its only for one person.














We all had our jobs the wife and myself had the job of setting up camp and all that came with it and the baby had fire duty. And as you can see he did a wonderful job.














For those of you that have never been camping and never been around wild life, here is a little hint. Don't fuck with them! They are not cuddly little animals that want you to feed and pet them. If you are looking for that go to a 4H meeting and go to the petting zoo. And bears are superior in strength and speed in the woods, you are evading their territory. We may be on top of the food chain, but a bear can tear off your arms just for shits and giggles. For all those yuppie scum that come to the woods they have posted warning labels on the trees for you to read. Because we all know that people like you are the reason they have "Do not eat" labels on preparation H cream.

































We were attacked by a tree so I thought I would teach him a lesson.














We went to the bait store bought a license to fish, some gear and head out to the lake. After hours of fishing all we caught was more bait lol. To add to my aggravation I seemed to have lost my freaking license to throw a line in the water and hope for a fish. I can't believe I have to pay for the ability to fish. WWJD is running through my mind for some reason right now, mainly because I would like to send these politicians a bibical plague for setting this up!





























When all is said and done it was a good trip. I got buzzed in the woods when Doug brought a bottle of Southern Comfort, the baby did a head dive into the lake(too funny for words), we saw two frogs, roasted marshmallows, and got really dirty. I was sooooo grateful to be home though, camping makes one really appreciate everything around you. Running water, private showers, soap, walls made of wood and stone, and all the comforts of home. If I had to live like this all the time I would not be a happy camper.

Wednesday, August 03, 2005


With my day is going in such a blur of paperwork and nonsense I thought I would give my two cents, and then ask for change. In my job the idea of bureaucracy is at full swing so you know what that means right? Nothing I do has any real purpose or meaning. It can be very dis-heartening at times but I see the world through different beer goggles than most. I put the paper in the out box from the in box. I reply to emails, print reports, and type my life away in front of this screen of death. Trying to justify our lives by our paychecks and squeak by without the boss seeing you playing on your blog when he thinks you are hard(ly) working. But lucky for me not only can I think outside the box I can also use the box to make a fort and keep out the evil monsters.
But there are times when I have to become the monster that I am always hiding from. To be a boss we have to do things and say things we really do not want to. And that is when the man you see over there has to come out and play. He is the mask I put on when I have to play hard ball. He is not one of my favorite personalities that live with me but he comes in handy at times. Like when you get a bad waiter in a restaurant, someone is rude to you at the store or when you have to "be the boss". Because ppl do things that boggle my mind and you just want to cry and shake your head. We all know what has to be done to keep the wheels running so why are some ppl doing the opposite? Is it rebellion agaist the system, a show of their authority or just a way of saying "Please fire me, I need a long vacation"? I don't know but I keep coming across these people and each time I am lost for words to what is truely going on in their attics.
I never look down on ppl that are working no matter how demeaning the job , it is still a job and should be done right. The world needs the little pee ones as much as we need the big CEO's . Well, I think we need less ceo's and more pee ons. Its the pee ons we rely on to get things fixed and cleaned. When was the last time you saw a ceo taking out garbage or vacuuming LOL!

Mornings

Tuesday and this is how I feel!

It has been one of those morning where I did not even want to breath let alone actually get up. The wife and myself said that we are going to get up early and go running but I can not seem to get past the snooze button on my cell phone. And yes I use the alarm clock on my phone. Due to the fact our room is always on the verge of popping the breaker. The a/c window unit is always causing the outage. Well.....we do have the tv, playstation,computer and any number of other things going at once . The compressor kicking on is the straw that breaks the camels back I guess lol. But enough about our little room...I went to sleep early last time with the intent to get up early and exercising. Yeah ok! I got up in just enough time to get to work 5 minutes late. But then again its good to be the semi-boss.

Just in case you are wondering what a semi-boss is : It is a job where you are "A" boss but not "THE" boss. I am the big fish in my little pond but there are alot of other ponds around me substantialy bigger than my own. It is a kewl gig, exspecally when the bigger fishes are out on a trip for the next few days heheheehehe. Which really is not that big of a deal in my job, luckily for me my big bosses are not hard asses. They are good guys but they are still the big bosses. I still feel like a kid in the principals office when I am asked to come into their office for some "important buisness". They did it to me just yesterday and I turned 8 years old again lol. But as usual it was about someone else in trouble and boy was I happy. I do feel bad for the person in question but they were,and still are, doing something they should not be doing. But I still hate when they call me in and close the door behind me. Like a weasel seeing the trap door closing in on them as they take the bait...lol.

Yet there is a possible silver lining to this heavy cloud of everyday hum-drum. Well, two things really. The first is that we have finished paying for our cruise that we are going on in November. Back into debt we go, but it is sooo worth it. I have not looked foward to a vacation this much since my honeymoon. We soo need this time awat and unplugged from everything. Secondly, we are plainingg to go camping this weekend. Yesterday we got all of our gear in order and put on the car rack. It looks like it might be a little wet but lets pray for some sun. Camping in the rain sucks ass. The last time we went it rain all 2 days we were out there. Everything was soaked and funky with water mud and just plain filth. And what sucks even more is having to put your gear away that way then having to go home and clean it later on in the week. Nasty!

But that is that for that for now. I just want to leave you with a general thought for the day and how I see things for the most part. A great way to start and stop a conversation, and by the way...have a good day :-D and STFU!

The run....

We loaded up the car with all the creatures we call our family and hit the road for adventure to Hurricane Harbor. With a bit of early morning drama with our pc printer crashing on us in mid print. We were on our way an hour later than we wanted but.....sheet happens.

The look of a man with a mission! We all went to Hurricane Harbor this weekend and had a blast. The weather was freakin great and the sun was just strong enuff to help me get framers tan and get some better tan lines.LOL.

The lazy river has to be one of the best ideas. I just wish it was bigger, but hey its still awesome the way it is. We had the baby in his floaties and he had a ball going around in the man made current. He went around this river about 8 times in all. He just was not all that keen on the water jets in tiki god section.














Here we have little man with his Speedo floaty and pacifier( which he found under the seat covered in fuzzies). We took a break mid day to have lunch out of the back of our mini-van. And yes we are one of those families that tail-gate in the parking lot. Due to the fact we cannot afford food and tickets to the park. So we stop by the local food store (WAWA)and stock up on sandwich stuffs and other goodies. In the end we feed 6 people without going too broke. Then to keep the money saving streak going on the way home we stopped at KFC and bought a bucket of chicken parts to go. Well feed masses equals happy trails on the way home on the Turnpike!
