28 hours to crazy and your Mom

I seriously thought about trying this before I read the disclaimer (hover over the comic to see):

MSU is Ranked!

MSU football made to #23 in the USA Today poll! WOOOOOO!

And before you ask: Yes, it IS sad that all it takes is MSU making into the top 25 on one poll to make us MSU fans excited.

In other football news: GOD DAMN Fantasy football FRACK BITCH CRAP!

Donovan McNabb had a combined total of just 23 FF points for the first two weeks, so I cut him for this week. Made sense right? My backup was Vince Young, so I thought it made sense. Young was playing New Orleans, who's D has not held up to any team so far this season, and the Eagles were playing Detroit, who have had a decent defense so far.

You can see where this is heading...

Donovan McNabb scored 43 FF points this week against the Lions. Young only got me 18. FRACK! With those extra points I would have won this week and moved into second in the league. Instead, I'm down to 5th place.

I've since realized my mistake: never bet that the Detroit Lions will show up and play a game.

Annual Complaining about the Christmas Season

Mi-Oyce's recent post about Christmas retailers reminded me it time for my annual complaining about the Christmas season post:

FUCKING Target with their Christmas lights already on sale.

First off, its still technically summer you nut jobs.

Second, what crazy person shops for Christmas lights in September? I mean, what the hell is your target demographic here? I'm thinking shoplifters, manics, and folks who have WAY too much fucking time on their hands. Who else on the entire planet would shop for outdoor decorations 3 months before you need them?

They're not even on sale. Who the fuck buys them 3 months before they need them at full price?

Short update on the Wilson's

* Work is kicking my ass lately. I'm starting to get work associated with the "competence" penalty. i.e., I know how to do my job, so I get more and more work. I need a vacation again.

* Sue is working what seems like every weekend this month. Boooo! If anyone has ANYTHING interesting to do on weekend evenings, please call me. Seriously.

* Played in a World Series of Euchre event with Kien last weekend. First day was all right. We played well except for a few mental mistakes that really cost us. That second day though...I don't think it mattered what we did. The god of cards was just flat out mocking us. We were euchred on bad hands, good hands, even a loner. Sigh...

It was so bad we went to Hooters to de-stress ourselves at lunch. I did manage to get our waitress to remove her shirt and let me take it home, so that made me feel better about myself:) (she let me win in a hula-hoop contest, but lets just forget that part and come up with a better story about how I got a shirt off a Hooter's girl).

New awesome tv show

Eric and I started watching Dexter from Showtime. The first season started last year so we ordered over Netflix. We are half way through and we both love it!! The new season begins on the 30th so we are going to get Showtime to watch a show we like in real time for once. The premise is Dexter, played by Michael C. Hall, is a cop by day and a serial murderer in his spare time. Dexter works in the forensics lab in the Miami police department and specializes in blood spatter of course because he is likes blood. Dexter is a different kind of serial killer though because he only kills wrong doers and he usually goes after people that have slipped through the legal system on a technicality. He is a loveable serial killer. It is a different kind of character and the show is very well written with some dark comedy thrown in for fun. The psychology of the show is very intriguing because as a psycho, Dexter is very self aware. His look on life is interesting.

We loved Michael C. Hall in Six Feet Under as David and it was hard to see him as someone different in the first few minutes but he really plays Dexter well. I also have to say that he looks hot in this show. He is tan, built up a bit and just has a sexy look about him.

You know what day it is

It is the anniversary of a bad day for America but we can not dwell on it. We can stop for a few minutes to pay respect so as not to forget but, we have to move on, be strong and make better decisions to enhance our country and the rest of the world. We need to stop making mistakes. We need to stop fighting wars just because we feel like it. We need to stop living the greedy lifestyle Americans love. Stop driving that hummer 2 blocks so that you look cool. Stop wasting so many resources and stop producing so much waste and pollution. That will help fight terroism. Stop hating people because they do not look like you or believe in what you believe in or live your lifestyle. America shows themselves as a hating country when we judge our own people and deny them rights. We need to end that. We need to fix our own country first and stop situations like VT and Columbine from even being considered. No one is right, just stop arguing and live in peace. LIVE! Stop wasting time arguing. All people are people and we all die one day and all of our bodies look the same when they are rotting. We are all made of the same cells. No one is better than the other. Stop praying for people and actually get your ass out there and do something!!

I am going to stop ranting and raving. I thought of closing with John Lennon and his lyrics to "Imagine" which you all know. Those words are still very true and are something to live by. Just think how long ago he wrote this song and still we find ourselves in the same hate controlled world with no hope for resolve. That is just sad. Instead I leave with the lyrics to a Linkin Park about our current situation. The first time I heard it it touched me so and it was like a dart in my heart...

"Hands Held High" by Linkin Park:

Turn my mike up louder I got to say something
Light weights step to the side when we come in

Feel it in your chest the syllables get pumping
People on the street they panic and start running

Words on loose leaf sheet complete coming
I jump in my mind and summon the rhyme, I'm dumping

Healing the blind I promise to let the sun in
Sick of the dark ways we march to the drum and

Jump when they tell us that they wanna see jumping
Fuck that I wanna see some fists pumping

Risk something, take back what's yours
Say something that you know they might attack you for

Cause I'm sick of being treated like I have before
Like it's stupid standing for what I'm standing for

Like this war's really just a different brand of war
Like it doesn't cater the rich and abandon poor

Like they understand you in the back of the jet
When you can't put gas in your tank

These fuckers are laughing their way to the bank and cashing the check
Asking you to have compassion and have some respect

For a leader so nervous in an obvious way
Stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay

And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
In their living room laughing like "what did he say?

Amen[End Chorus]

In my living room watching but I am not laughing
Cause when it gets tense I know what might happen

World is cold the bold men take action
Have to react or get blown into fractions

Ten years old it's something to see
Another kid my age drugged under a jeep

Taken and bound and found later under a tree
I wonder if he had thought the next one could be me

Do you see the soldiers they're out today
They brush the dust from bullet proof vests away

It's ironic at times like this you pray
But a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday

There's bombs in the buses, bikes, roads
Inside your market, your shops, your clothes

My dad he's got a lot of fear I know
But enough pride inside not to let that show

My brother had a book he would hold with pride
A little red cover with a broken spine

On the back, he hand-wrote a quote inside
When the rich wage war it's the poor who die

Meanwhile, the leader just talks away
Stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay

And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
both scared and angry like "what did he say?

With hands held high into a sky so blue
As the ocean opens up to swallow you

With hands held high into a sky so blue
As the ocean opens up to swallow you

With hands held high into a sky so blue
As the ocean opens up to swallow you

With hands held high into a sky so blue
As the ocean opens up to swallow you

With hands held high into a sky so blue
As the ocean opens up to swallow you
With hands held high into a sky so blue
As the ocean opens up to swallow you[End Chorus]

Something for the Michigan Fans

I think I can sum up my feelings on the Michigan / Oregon game in one sentence:

"Now you know what its feels like to be a MSU fan."

Welcome to the other side.

One thing I will say though: When we lose we usually don't boo our own team. Or look like someone just shot our mother on national TV. No no.

We drink! Of course, we do that when we win too...

Oh, and I have to comment on Hart's statement that he guarantees they will beat Notre Dame next week:


Have you seen Notre Dame this year? They suck. Like a vacuum on overdrive suck. They haven't scored an offensive touchdown in TEN quarters. That's 2 and half games for those slow at math. I doubt they could have beaten Appalachian State either. Hell, my high school's football team could probably beat them, and we were only a 1A school:) Brighton would definitely beat them:)

The Smiths?

All the music ever made in the entire history of the world, and you decide to remake The Smiths "Stop Me"? Again, I thought the point of being in music was to get laid...

Shocking! Men want hot women, study confirms

CNN is also reporting that, in a shocking finding, children like candy.

Not only is the title so obvious that you can't help but feel like it is an insult to our intelligence, I love the "story highlights":

  • Men are much less choosy than women
  • Women are aware of the importance of their own attractiveness to men
I'm shocked. SHOCKED I TELL YOU!

Off to a Red State

I'm off to Omaha, Nebraska today for work again. Because my company has suddenly become cheap when it comes to plane tickets ("What do you mean you won't accept the $1200+ tickets I picked? Budgets? What are those?"), I had to get up way too f#$%ng early today. Dawn wasn't even out when I got up( 4:30am). Hell, dawn wasn't even out when I got to the airport (5:50am). Stupid lazy dawn...

Anyways, onto a totally different note about air travel: I was thinking today that despite all this jet setting I do, I don't really know where any of these places I go are. I mean, I know what state Omaha is in, and I could even point to it on a map (Me smart, see?).

But if you asked me where in the state Omaha is, I would have no idea. Same for Wausau, our company headquarters. I've been there half a dozens times, but when asked by Sue's friends who live in Wisconsin where Wausau is, all I could do was avoid eye contact and pretend I didn't hear the question. And then came the drooling and the covering my ears and singing really loud so I didn't hear the question again. It was embarrassing to say the least.

My Two Favorite Teams

I've got a new 2nd favorite college football team:


The only bad things was that the game wasn't televised, so I couldn't watch U of M lose to a division I-AA school!
