Um. Facebook is Stupid

So I naturally have a page. I didn't mean too. Honest. But I was bored in a training class last week and one thing lead to another and well there you go. I'm not proud. So instead of admitting my mistakes, did I just let the page wither and die? No I added a whole bunch of stuff to it and check it 3 or 4 times a day. What in the hell is wrong with me?

My friend r0n would say that I'm gay. But that's pretty much his answer whenever I ask that question.

I have 11 friends now on Facebook. Mostly made up of people that I know from work and a few relatives. And my wife. It's not the most happening page on the intertubes by far (nor is this one for that matter) but it kills a couple of minutes at a time. And really, isn't that something that we all need more of?

I'm pissed

I've been waiting to get a Wii Fit. I didn't pre-order one from Amazon because I thought that I would have no problem getting one. I was wrong.

So I searched and finally last night, I was in Best Buy and they had 2! WOOT, I was so pumped to get it home and when I got it hooked up it won't sync. Over and over again the fucking thing blinks at me. I pushed the button on the balance board and the button on the Wii.




It took all I had not to throw the thing on the floor.

So maybe it's the batteries. Out I go to CVS at 9:50, in the rain to get new batteries.

Get home with 8 AA duracell batteries. The HIGH POWERED ones especially made for electronics. (What a crock) Put the batteries into the balance board and the board said, "Fuck you."

Didn't even turn on.

I didn't even get a courtesy blink.

I just got bent over the coach and reamed.

Fucking electronics.

We also bought a new dishwasher last night, what are the chances that the guy hooks it up on Friday and it spews water and suds all over the house on Saturday?

Pretty good if you ask me.

23 days until 40

My 40th birthday is coming up. In 23 days to be precise, hence the title.

This picture to the right shows you how cool I am. Or was anyway. Replace the Atari with a Commodore 64 and you'll know what my desk in my bedroom looked like 25 years ago.

Yeah, that's a tape drive on the shelf below printer. And I would kill to have those Return of the Jedi glasses back.

Break up the ORIOLES!


The Birds are in first place!!!

What? It's only April 7th? Screw you, I'm enjoying this.

New Game

Frisky Dingo came into my lab today and I challenged him to kick a box that had house some odd computer part from the floor onto his head. I figured it would be an easy trick, he's pretty handy with a soccer ball. After three increasingly funny attempts he gave up and when I pointed out where he was going wrong, he kicked the box at me.

Game over...

Work is fun.


I don't like reading about stuff like this. It tears me up inside. But when it's on the front page of the Baltimore Sun, you can't miss it. Then you can not not read it.

3 children killed at city hotel
Father expected to be charged; family in custody fight

So I read the article. If I were a police officer and I was the first person on this scene:

The bodies were discovered after the man called hotel security about 1:15 p.m. from his 10th-floor room at the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards, saying that he had killed his children and was considering harming himself, said Officer Troy Harris, a city police spokesman.

I would've harmed him. Hell who am I kidding? I would have shot him in the fucking head.

What a way to start your week.

Fan Fest

Today Jonathan and I went to the Orioles Fanfest. Every year when baseball ends, actually the way the Orioles have been playing it's been for the last decade it's been around the beginning of August, my love for baseball dies. It doesn't really die it just sort of hides for awhile, my love for baseball and the O's will never die.

When we got to the park and saw the players in their clean bright white uniforms those feelings come rushing back.

We decided to try and wait in line to get some autographs, Brian Roberts in particular but after waiting in line for a half hour and getting through a hot chocolate we gave it up and moved on to see what other cool things we could see and do.

Up in the club level we got to meet the Oriole Bird and have our pic snapped with him.

We had a great time. I don't care who you are there are very few things better in life than sitting in the center field bleachers eating hot dogs and watching baseball with your son, even if it was just batting practice.

Finally. Finally. Finally. We watched Medium last night, it was a part one of two. Now 95% of the time Brig and/or I figure out what's going on about 20 minutes into the show. It doesn't take away any of our enjoyment of the show but it's a fun little game to see which one can shout out, "I KNOW!".

We have no idea what's going on this week. Is the blonde girl some sicko mastermind? Was the blonde girl even involved in the first case? It was 9 years ago and she still looked like a teenager when they pulled her out of the house. Then on top of that her mother said she had just spoke to her and saw her the day before. BAH! This isn't "Lost", it's not supposed to make me think so much.

Also, there is a new sitcom on called Miss Guided on ABC. I didn't think much going into it but turns out it's a pretty funny little show.

How about this?

How about this?

Uh Oh

So, I was looking around on Yahoo Sports and I stumbled upon a ranking for the upcoming NFL season. Yeah the one that starts in September. Well I went to see where my beloved Ravens fell. Thinking somewhere around 10.

29. Baltimore Ravens (5-11) – Steve McNair looked like he was done last season, and drafting a quarterback in the first round isn’t going to help this franchise in the short term. Elements of the defense are getting old. It looks like time for a multiyear rebuild.

Eh, 29? There are only 32 teams. I know we have QB issues, I know that we have a rookie head coach but.....COME ON! 29th? For fuck's sake.

God, the Deadskins are ranked 14th. THE BROWN'S ARE RANKED 6TH!!!!!

Un-fucking-believable. Isn't it bad enough that I'm going to have to sit through another horrid year with the O's??


Not too much going on today. Jonathan's swim lessons started back up last night and he did well. Sometimes he forgets to breathe. Not good when your head is under water. Baby is sleeping through the night after getting over his little cold.

My wife is suddenly obessed with Facebook and MySpace. I'm a little worried.

Still no good tv on, watched Biggest Loser last night and then Idol. Medium is sitting on my DVR still but since it's a part one of two I don't think Brig will want to watch it until next Monday. She's weird like that.

The Half-Marathon

I need to lose weight. A lot of weight. I don't even want to tell you where I stand right now, hell with it. I'm weighing in at a hefty 298 lbs. No where near Biggest Loser type stuff and heck, standing at 6' 5" it's not even really a big deal. But I want to get down to 245 so I need a goal. The Baltimore half marathon is in October so I'm going to enter and train for that. Today was day #3 on my training routine, I ran 2.43 miles in 35 minutes.

I'm not fast.


Since everyone else has a blog, I figured I would get one too. No sense in letting good technology good to waste. What is my blog going to be about? Stuff. And that's all you need to know for now.

Quick good bye to "Jericho" which had it's last episode last night. You will be missed.
