Long live the old school!

Not a lot to post tonight.  Our new downstair neighbors suck hard!  Big surprise!  2 days and Lara’s already looking for new abodes!

Listening to music tonight and cocktailing!  Have some humorous pictures for a future post but not quite yet…  Kids went back to school today and they were happy and we were happy.  Lara and I went to lunch and ran errands and conversed.  Kinda like real Human Beans!

Rollins Band just came up on my JukeBoxeZ!  Nice.  Today was Friday for me and I couldn’t be happier!  My normal cook went to opening day at Safeco Field today.  She’s a huge Mariners Head.  I think we’re going to a game in August (as a fam) this year.  Last year we went to a ball game on the HOTTEST DAY EVER in Washington state.  It was Awesome!

Tomorrow equals LOST!  Whooo.



Just got in the door from work and it was the epitomy of ‘meh’.  No tumbleweeds but I wasn’t breaking a sweat either.  Made some cash and had some fun.  Food was good (as it always is) and peoples barometers were pleasant but just not enough of them coming in.

One of my coworkers compadres recommended a movie called ’44 Inch Chest’ to me tonight and I think I’ll check it out soon.  Listening to Cage the Elephant right about now, heard ’em on the radio and during the beginning of Borderlands and had to have the album, it’s almost folk rock and hip hop.  I like it.

MunkyNutz called today and we chatted about a number of things including, and not limited to, Alpha Protocol, Obsidian Entertainment, facepunching, pre and post Joey Anthrax, bigger in Texas and professional gaming.  Also Greedy McNasty.  Plus Vegas.  The Hangover is such an amusing film that we both watch it frequently but the only question I’ve not seen answered is ‘Where the Hell did the chickens come from?’.  If you have the answer please feel free to pass it along.

Here is a link: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/four-bright-screwattack/62941 .  Please watch it as it is awesome.

That is all Geritol.  See you soon!

Your Friday is My MONDAY!

Had a relaxing morning (snooze and news). The kiddos had a half day today and have half days all next week for parent teacher conferences. I like Alora’s teacher quite a bit, she seems to genuinely invest in the children she interacts with, is a new mother and doesn’t look down her nose at you. Always a quality I find endearing.

On the topic of my title for this post. Yes, your Friday is my Monday. I work as a waiter at a restaurant and if you’re worth anything in that capacity you are guaranteed to be working Friday and Saturday. As I close (work the dinner shift), I work Fri through Mon/Tues. I don’t mind when the pace is brisk but there are many a Saturday evening when the tumbleweeds blow through that I wonder to myself why I’m at work when everyone else is having fun.

The logo of the establishment I am employed by.

I like the crew that I work with on a regular basis and it’s comfort food combined with local and packaged seafood. The last coupla weeks have treated me well as a server and I don’t loathe going to work. I think I have it pretty good in that respect.

It’s just that I am working when anyone I know is having a good time or get together. Such is life I suppose.

Speaking of life, I recommend that you don’t waste any of yours on the 6th book of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy! I adore the previous books (penned by the deceased and profoundly missed Douglas Adams) as they tend to harken back to my childhood love of Monty Python, Doctor Who and all things scifi! This book is penned by a fellow (British, hence the fellow) that has only dabbled in ‘tween’ books previously, Artemis Fowl or some such nonsense. This Eoin Colfer guy comes into this installment of the HGTTG (acronym for the Hitchhiker books as no one likes to type out the full title more than once) with something to prove. What he proves (unfortunately) is that he is not doing his best to stay true to Adams vision, he merely has a chip on his shoulder about being known as a children’s author. Now I don’t remember how many times there were guide asides in the original works but I remember them being either woven into the narrative or being few and far between. This Colfer fellow has BOXOUTS for EVERY guide entry and they happen on nearly an every page basis (or at least it felt that way). Also I don’t remember the earlier books being foulmouthed or vulgar, Colfer obviously wants us to know this is NOT a childrens book (the jacket sleeve reminds us that this is his first novel {pfffft} for ADULTS) by constantly having characters curse. Now I haven’t become an old prude, in fact I enjoy some creative profanity fairly frequently, but this has NO place in a book that is supposedly carrying on the spirit of the original works. Oh and the story sucks too.

Also on the topic of this blog. I have not become a narcissist or an ‘I’m the only thing that matters and people care about what I do and think’ kinda dude. I’m merely replacing ViolentN8.com with this, which I frankly will probably keep up to date more, and trying to hone up my ‘net skills, typing and whatnot. I don’t really expect anyone to care what I had for lunch but I’ve been feeling kinda disconnected from the world lately and so this wordpress deal can help tie my Fbook, MySpace, Twitter and general media knowledgery together.

Plus this is easier to publish my cell phone photos too!
