Team Couture gets a win

It finally happened. Team Couture won the challenge and the fight tonight. After winning the challenge they get to choose who goes in the ring. They took a little risk by picking to go against Bobby Southward, a strong fighter on Liddel's team. Bobby was the other one involved in the 'incident' 2 weeks ago, showing his maturity by calling another fighter a fatherless bastard knowing that his father left him at a young age. That is classless no matter how you slice it. At any rate he got into the ring with Stephan Bonar. Stephan controlled the pace of the fight, literally chasing Bobby around the ring. Scored more take downs. The striking I thought was close, a slight edge to Bobby for a couple of late 2nd round punches, but not enough to really make a difference. I thought he won both rounds. The judges saw it as a split decision, ultimately giving the win to Stephan. Team Couture finally wins, good job. I believe this will be a trend for a little while. Team Liddell seems to be a lot more immature, they don't work as a team and immediately point fingers when something, anything, goes wrong. Chris Leben, eliminated from Couture's team last week, was really the only one doing that on their team. Now that he's gone they seem to be pretty solid. Next week promises to bring someone who was previously eliminated back on to the show. Don't know who yet?

Ultimate Fighter

After a dissapointing fight last week on my favorite, and only, reality show I'm looking forward to a good fight. I've heard some of the guys the could have out there and I hope it's true. Although it seemed the best fighter was getting in the ring last night his performance was not impressive, his opponent was slightly more impressive and he won the decision. Here's to a great fight!

I'm also getting ready for a trip to Tunica to watch the Freestyle Fighting Championship live this Saturday. Should be a good time, if not I should at least make some money!

Saturday Night

We decided to go out and celebrate because I got a call back from the job interview. ( although I will say I haven't got the 'official' call with a written offer I was suppossed to get today so this may have been a little premature!) Like we need a reason to celebrate. Daniel, some other guy??, Justin, Crystal and I headed to Friday's for some dinner. Susan, a lady I met Friday call but didn't come out because "you and Daniel are going to start taking shots and head downtown." I can't believe she assumed that! So I went back in and Daniel had just ordered a round of 'Red Headed Sluts' for us. WIERD! We then moved on to the traditional 'Toungue in my panties' round. We had to take Crystal and Justing home because they did not want to go down town. We headed to Demondrelum where John and some of his friends had the corner room at the Comfort Inn, an excellent party idea!!! We hit all the bars up and down Demonbredum, checking out the bands and all the ladies we could look at. Daniel decided to try and see if he could pull off being a foriegner all night. Talking in mostly jibberish. He convinced one lady (a drunk lady of course) that he was from Kirkergarghenstein, Germany and he spoke 4 languanges, English (barely), German (i have no idea how she bought that), Spanish (which he speaks fluently and last but not least......Yiddesh. (are you kidding me) So Daniel, talking in 'yiddesh' would look at me, his transator, and raddle off a bunch of jibberish. My response "yep, she's a beautiful lady". She loved it. How that worked I'll never know but now Daniel is going to want to pull this crap every night. It was pretty funny.

Quote of the night. Crystal was reluctant to try the 'toungue in my panties' shot. "It will be the best thing you've had in your mouth since your 1st boyfriend." Jason! She was horrified, everyone else at the bar laughed. (am I really that loud?)

Friday Night

Another Friday night started at the E. My close work buddies and some of the locals. Wasn't long before it was just me and Daniel ready to hit the town. We decided to check out Guido's pizza, heard they get a good late night crowd and the bartender said he'd take care of us. 20 Bacardi and coke's later, we knew he wasn't kidding. After getting the $30 tab we really new he wasn't kidding!!!! Of course we didn't just get there drinnk and leave. Daniel tried to impress Jen by playing the piano, mix Daniel's talent with 10 rum and coke's and you get 'lean on me' 24 straight times. I was hanging at the bar with Kim, schmoozing to get her to stay the night at my place next weekend. A simple plan, a little selfish since I will be in Tunica Gambling and attending the Freestyle Fighting Championship! #1 mission accompl...... OK, #2 mission accomplished :). The night was drawing an end so we headed to Dolan's for some more good times...... Another successfully great night on the town for the Flying Python.

Quote of the evening "How can Greg be such a shitty bartender at the E and so great at Guido's" Daniel. If your a regulay at the E that's funny, if not, sorry.

Never make assumptions!

Tuesday at work I recieved 2 phone calls from print/fulfillment shops in our area, this is not all together odd since I run a print/fulfillment shop and we in the business often try to stay on each others radar to outsource to each other if the need arises. I wrote them both down and decided to call them back at a later date. Wednesday morning I called the 1st one, a very pushing salesman who I ended up hanging up on because I couldn't get him off the phone. At this point I decided not to call the other one back. Just then, of course, the phone rings. It's the other guy asking if I have a minute. He starts telling me about their volume of mail, the way they do business, the people that work for him, I'm not listening, I'm playing solataire, he tells me about their insurance benifits, I'm fiddling with my CD player, about to hang u......huh????? Insurance benefits? why would he do that? I start paying attention, replaying the 1st part of the conversatoin over. He's not selling, he's buying. He wants me to work for him!!!!! Since I'm not happy in my job this is awesome. He asks if I'll come to the shop Thursday for lunch. Calls back 2 hours later asking to meet me for breakfast AND still come out for lunch. I obtained their website info and agreed to meet him. I spent last night diggin through their website, learning and thinking up questions to ask them. Had a great meeting with the 3 head people, another great meeting with them over lunch where they closed the conversation by telling me I'm their number 1, they're done inerviewing, they'll call me on Monday. Holy crap this will be pretty damn cool. I still don't even know how they heard of me, my head hunter didn't set this up and they aren't looking on line???????? Strange, but cool.

peace out homies!

The Ultimate Fighter

Well it happened, Leben lost. He didn't put up a good showing and definately did not live up to his reputation as a relentless striker. He looked very tentative, Koscheck had a couple of good take downs and basically just stayed on top of him the whole match. Not very impressive but definately enough to win the fight. Leben through a fit after the fight which only made him look like a big loser. Obviously your going to be upset after a loss but even in the biggest grudge matches the loser will shake the hand of the winner. I think Leben needs to grow up a little if he wants to make it in the big time. He did not look like a fighter with a 19 and 1 record tonight.

Monday Night Trivia

Went down to the pub in Spring Hill for a little Monday night trivia, Linda came down this time. Oh, I guess I should say Wild Lady Linda, which is what the DJ called her after looking at her for about 2 seconds. We took 2nd place, lost by 3 points. If I could have just remembered who was the Dallas Cowboy's coach before Bill Parcels we could have won. At the end of the game we ran in to Randy, an old friend and hung out with him a while. Randy showed up a little late, he just happens to be a huge Cowboy fan! Oh well, we won a free appetizer so we can try again next week.

A weekend back in the action

Well I got off my graveyard shift and had a weekend back in the action. I already wrote about Friday, we had a great time, I'm fairly certain I sprained my liver. My splein also suffered a slight bruise. At any rate we were back at it on Saturday, a little tamer this time. I woke up at 6pm (still on a graveyard sleep schedule). Met up with Mike up at the E, there was a wedding party with plenty of ladies all dressed up for us. Hopped over to Daniel's pad to watch the Hopkins vs Eastman fight, Hopkins won easily. Back to the E where we ran into Vene and Alex. Alex is fun to hang out with, he's from Switzerland and he is hard to understand most of the time but he does provide a lot of comic relief to our crowd. Mike ended up following part of the wedding crowd to a downtown bar while Daniel and I headed to Jonathan's and Friday's in what turned out to be a pretty melow evening. (I wasn't the only one who bruised some internal organs Friday night). With the demise of the hockey season and my new location here in the south I have officially turned to Nascar for a release. GO JUNIOR!!!! Met Mike on Sunday to watch the Daytona 500.

Did I say hockey was on?

So they verbalized there agreement Friday night, had everything sorted out and ready ofr a 28 game season. Sat down to the table Saturday to ink the deal when all hell broke loose. Bottom line, HOCKEY IS BACK OFF. This sucks.

Friday Night

OK, you saw the HOCKEY NEWS!!!!!! We were a couple drinks into the night when we heard that. Daniel, almost the fan I am, and I went nuts. The chants of "Lets go Predators" were coming often. I caught a little flack when chanting for the Avalanche, come on, it's my team and I love them. My dog, Riku, named after Riku Hahl of the Avalanche. This turned what would have been a normal B-day celebration into a WAHOO HOCKEY IS BACK 'A' BRATION!!!!!! Shot after shot we took and took well. The 1st on the TGIF bartender who was just excited we were ecited. Awesome! We ended up going to printers alley again, why not, had a good time last time!!!!! Daniel met up with Cari, Mike with Kim and me with Kristi (probably not spelling any of those right) to have a good time. We danced, we sang, we partied until close, Daniel and I explaining to anyone who would listen that HOCKEY IS ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Most didn't believe us but they will on Saturday when they hear the great news!!!!! WAHOOOOOO, hockey is on. We love it, you should love it, everyone should love it. Predators season tickets will be in our hands shortly!!!!! If your'e nice you may be able to squeak a game in!!!
Oh yeah, almost forgot. We ended up at the WH (see difference between this and the Waffle House in previous blog) where Daniel ordered his usual "raped" eggs and made the pregnant waitress bring his 9 cups of coffee.

Pretty heartless if you ask me!

HOCKEY IS ON!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hockey is ON FUCKERS!!!!!

That's right. at 9pm last night Daniel got the call. HOCKEY IS ON!!! HAHHAHHHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHA! I can't contain myself. It will only be a 28 game season but its' something. I LOVE IT!!!! For those of you that don't know, I'm kind of a fan. You heard it here 1st. ESPN will announce it on Saturday!!!!! My 3 dogs, although 2 of them stayed with my X and my daughter in Cheyenne, are all named after Hockey players!! I LOVE HOCKEY!!! IT"S BACK FUCKERS@!@!!!!!!!!!

Beavis and Butthead Episode 2

So I'm working my graveyard shift, still with the pride of Columbia, TN, my temps Beavis and Butthead. Still at their crazy antics. If you missed the first episode the entire job I've hired these 2 for, 1 has a list of all hte names in the file we are working with (that would be Beavis) and the other 1 watches the output coming off and reads every 25 th name (Butthead). This will ensure that I have completed every name on every file until we get out equipment working properly and that's all automated. At any rate, niether Beavis or Butthead can read very well. So last night they had a cople of Blog worthy comments. Customer 1st name, Aerelia, Butthead "um, Areola," Beavis "yup. I wonder if she gets taller when it's cold our?". Customer last name, Maggot. Butthead "MAGGOT!" Beavis, who sits there in his Stone Cold Steve Austin T-shirt with the sleeves cut off, "yup." Butthead "Can you imagine if he went into the military, the Seargent would be like 'let's go MAGGOT!' and this guy would be like, 'what?'. I did find out that these fine gentleman are educated on certain subjects though. White Power, Hitler, why the blacks should move back to Africa, Reaganomics and most of George W's politics are among the list they are willing and able to speak about. All in all I think they are pretty good guys, scary and misguided as the are. They are definately hard working. Only 4 more days to go!!

The Ultimate Fighter

This show just keeps getting better and better. Last night they took the fighters out on the town and let them drink a little. Normally they work out 4-6 hours a day, other than that they are stuck with each other in a house with no outlets, no TV, no movies. A bunch of fighters talking about fighting 24 hours a day. They have been in the house for a month now. So after they go out on the town and get back to the house drunk and out of control 2 of the fighters that absolutely hate each other start going at it and talking amack to one another. It then became kind of a 2 on 1 deal. The 1, Chris Leben who fights for team quest, got very upset over some comments made about him having no father. He was so upset he seperated himself from the situation by going to bed in the front yard. Bobby Southworth and Josh Koscheck (the 2) then went to play a practical joke and turned the hose on him. Obviously this did not go over well, Chris stormed of going 'through' to doors in the process. Coaches Chuck and Randy along with President Dana went over the tapes and decided they need to throw someone off. But unlike most reality shows this is a fighting show so next week middleweights Chris Leben and Josh Koscheck will go toe to toe to see who gets to stay. Unless its a fluke it will be Chris. Last week Chris called Josh out to fight and he wouldn't do it. This should be a terrific fight. They hate each other, they want each other gone. In addition to the winner getting to stay and fight for the big money at the end they will also be awarded an extra $5000 for a knock out or submission so there is plenty of incentive for both to fight hard. I can't wait!!!!

My 1st Graveyard shifft

Well I made it through my 1st shift on late nights. Me, 2 of my superstar emplyoees and 2 new temps. These 2 temps they sent me I'm sure were the inspiration behind Beavis an Butthead. Every sentance they utter either ends in hehehe or huhuhu. One of them came in with long hair, a gargoyle t-shirt and a hat with a confederate flag. He had three of the largest rings on his right had I've ever seen. This would be Beavis, he looks like a rough biker type guy witha voice the compared to Mike Tyson crossed with Neil Young. Yes, it was odd. We found out the other guy, Butthead, has in the ball park of 6 cars in his backyard all with blown engines. When we went to go to work and he threw on some work gloves, black leather half finger gloves, and on the right hand he had cut out holes so his rings showed through the gloves. Priceless. Their sole job in this endeavor is for one of them to read every 25th name that comes of the machine and the other to follow along with a list of the complete file and make sure that 25th name matches the file list, this way we know we have all the people in the file. 1st off I don't know that either one of these guys reads very well, but at least they were on the same page. So I'm watching them becasue my faith has not quite been built up yet. So number 25 comes along...."sur-geye-oh" says Beavis, "yup", says Butthead, I look down, Sergio. Nubmer 50 "gus-steve" BV, "yup" BH, (Gustev). "Lipstick" BV, "yup" BH, (Letitia, Lipinski was the last name). So as there reading the names they are cracking themselves up with there comments. Suzanne Stump came up, "wouldn't that be funny if she only had one arm" BH, "yeah yeah, hehehe hehehe" BV. This went on to the shock and amazment of Blair and I (Blair, one of my superstars) for 6 hours until the night came to a screaching hault because of the name, and I shit you not, Peter Small. I can't describe the horror in the face of Blair and I when we heard BV say Peter Small, there was about a 5 second pause for it all to sink in and then it just started. I'm sure you all can imagine where they took this whole thing. I have to work all week with these 2!

Sober Saturday Night

So It's almost 8pm on a Saturday and here I sit getting ready for work. Daniel's B-Day party is tonight and I'm going to miss the festivitie's because I work for Mein Furer. This may be the 1st time I've not drank on a Saturday since I was about 18. Regular readers may no that Mein Furer is a little bit off her rocker, her micro-managing style will not allow a minutes worth of work go one with out someone from upper management there. For the next 7 days when I have to ask 2 of my most trusted operators to work 11pm-7am I HAVE to be there. It's not so much the idea of being there for my team, I never have a problem with that. It's the fact that there will only be 2 people there, 2 of the best, you know the type of people who never have problems, they run the equipment better than I could ever hope to. Meanwhile my normal day shift will go unsupervised by me, there are other managers to cover but they are not directly involved in my world. So the ones I'm leaving behind are the ones that really need my support. But OH WELL! I think my feelings can best be summed up in a song by Rammstein. Sure, I have no idea what they are saying because I don't speak German but they sound mad about something. (the only other song I could think of in German was 99 Luft Balloons and I don't think that quite captures my mood!)

Du...Du hast...Du hast mich... (4x)......Du...Du hast...Du hast mich...Du hast mich...Du hast mich gefragt...Du hast mich gefragt...Du hast mich gefragt, und ich hab nicht gesagt!Willst du bis der tod euch scheideTreu ihr sein fur alle tagenNEIN!NEIN!Willst du bis der tod euch scheideTreu ihr sein fur alle tagenNEIN!NEIN!Du...Du hast...Du hast mich...

Meet the Bloggers

So I got invited to this blogger mini-convention this morning. Linda, Jeanne and I met up at 7:30am at the Waffle House. Couple points to make.....
  • I did not know there was a 7:30 am on Saturday!
  • I call it the Waffle House instead of the WH I refer to in my previous experiences becasue they are 2 very different places. The WH (open to drunk singing people from 1am-5am) serves excellent food that always satisfy's my appetite. The Waffle House (Open to sober non-singing people from 5:01am-1259am)....aaaahhh.. it's not good!
  • Blogger convention???????

OK so we ate at the Waffle House and met at News Channel 2 for coffee 'n' stuff. Met fun people, everything I thought it would be, yada yada yada and we're outta there. So we're driving out of the parking lot (Linda rode with me) and we see this lady jogging, sweatpants, 1/2 sweatshirt (yuck, bigger lady!) smoking a cigarette, windbreaker tied around her back,.......what, smoking a cigarette, YES, she's smoking a cigarette, then I noticed she had a can in her other hand, I think it was a beer. For the 1st time in a long time I'm cosidering taking up jogging!

My New Shift

Mien Furer has spoken. Starting this Saturday I'll be working from 11pm until 7am for the next week or so. That means I took Monday and Tuesday of this week off for absolutely nothing. No thank you, not even a screw you (at least it'd be something). I love my job I love my job I love my job. NO I DON'T!

I'm Sick

This flu thing is ridiculous! I went home after work at 4pm, fell asleep watching Shaun of the Dead, and slept all through the night! About 12 hours in all. I recieved Shaun of the Dead from my netflix in the mail yesterday. From the 1/2 I saw it's pretty funny if you are in to the dumb British humor. At any rate I can barely move, if the rumors about Donavan McNaab having the flu during the Superbowl are true and he felt like me my hats off to him for playing. I don't know that I could throw on a uniform and do anything right now.

Dear Alcohol

First & foremost, let me tell you that I'm a huge fan of yours. My friend, you always seem to be there when needed. The perfect post-work cocktail, a beer at the game, and you're even around in the holiday's hidden inside chocolates as you warm us when we're stuck in the midst of endless family gatherings. However, lately I've been wondering about your intentions. While I want to believe that you have my best interests at heart, I feel that your influence has led to some unwise consequences:

1. Phone calls: While I agree with you that communication is important, I question the suggestion that any conversation of substance or necessity takes place after 2 a.m. Why would you make me call those ex-boyfriends/girlfriends when I know for a fact they do not want to hear from me during the day, let alone all hours of the night?

2. Eating: Now, you know I love a good meal, but why do you suggest that I eat a taco with chili sauce, along with a big Italian meatball and some stale chips (washed down with WINE & topped off with a Kit Kat after a few cheese curls & chili cheese fries)? I'm an eclectic eater, but I think you went too far this time.

3. Clumsiness: Unless you're subtly trying to tell me that I need to do more yoga to improve my balance, I see NO need to hammer the issue home by causing me to fall down. It's completely unnecessary, and the black & blue marks that appear on my body mysteriously the next day are beyond me. Similarly, it should never take me more than 45 seconds to get the front door key into the lock.

4. Furthermore: The hangovers have GOT to stop. This is getting ridiculous. I know a little penance for our previous evening's debauchery may be in order, but the 3pm hangover immobility is completely unacceptable! My entire day is shot. I ask that, if the proper precautions are taken (water, vitamin B, bread products, aspirin) prior to going to sleep/passing out face down on the kitchen floor with a bag of popcorn, the hangover should be minimal & in no way interfere with my daily activities.

Alcohol, I have enjoyed our friendship for some years now & would like to ensure that we remain on good terms. You've been the invoker of great stories, the provocation for much laughter, and the needed companion when I just don't know what to do with the extra money in my pockets. In order to continue this friendship, I ask that you carefully review my grievances above & address them immediately. I will look for an answer no later than Thursday 3pm (pre-happy hour) on your possible solutions & hopefully we can continue this fruitful partnership.

Thank you,
Your biggest fan

2. Preliminary
3. Proliferation

1. Thanks, but I don't want to have sex.
2. Nope, no more beer for me.
3. Sorry, but you're not really my type.
4. Good evening, officer. Isn't it lovely out tonight?
5. Oh, I couldn't. No one wants to hear me sing.

The Ultimate Fighter

Last nights show was pretty good. They had to eliminate a middleweight so Nick Diaz, who I think is going to win the middle wight division, fought Nick Kasparo (?). NIck made pretty quick work of him taking him straight to the ground, landing big elbows and hands to the face and then ultimately submitting him by rear-naked choke. From the highlights of next weeks show it looks like there is a fight outside the ring in the house, it showed somebody breaking a door down. They also stated they took the fighters out on the town and everyone got pretty drunk. It will be unfortunate if someone gets kicked off in this fasion. Martial Arts, no matter what kind should be about self discilpline and if these guys are allowed to go out 1 time and this happens they might have missed the point of this sport.

A Monday night in Spring Hill

Decided to take it somewhat easy tonight since I've been out with friends the last 5 nights. Went down to the Spring Hill Pub for some Trivia. They changed the time from 6pm start to a 630pm start so maybe some of the Franklin crew can make it down. I'm playing against teams of 3-7 people, I need some help. You all know I ain't vury smurt! BrainBlast Productions based out of Franklin has games on Monday in Spring Hill, Wednesday at Prime Time Pizza in Cool Springs and on Thursday at the Wild Noodle in Cool Springs. All games start at 630pm. Mention my name and get a free pencil to use during the game!!! Really! If your free on those nights you should get a crew together and check it out. It's a good time for the friends and family. Now I'm just going to kill time, workout and prepare for my favorite reality TV show.... Another fight tonight will decide who is kicked off.

Funky Cold Medina

Remember this song? It's great! 'It's the 80's and I'm down with the ladies'.... They don't ahve lyrics like that anymore. (there might be a reason for that)


Alright, dig it

Cold coolin at a bar, and I'm lookin for some action
But like Mike Jagger said, I can't get no satisfaction
The girls are all around, but none of them wanna get with me
My threads are fresh and I'm lookin def, yo, what's up with L-o-c?
The girls is all jockin at the other end of the bar
Havin drinks with some no-name chump, when they know that I'm the star
So I got up and strolled over to the other side of the cantina
I asked the guy, Why you so fly? he said, Funky Cold Medina
Funky Cold Medina

This brother told me a secret on how to get more chicks
Put a little Medina in your glass, and the girls'll come real quick
It's better than any alcohol or aphrodisiac
A couple of sips of this love potion, and she'll be on your lap
So I gave some to my dog when he began to beg
Then he licked his bowl and he looked at me and did the wild thing on my leg
He used to scratch and bite me, before he was much much meaner
But now all the poodles run to my house for the Funky Cold Medina
You know what I'm sayin?
I got every dog in my neighborhood breakin down my door
I got Spuds McKenzie
Alex from Stroh's
They won't leave my dog alone with that Medina, pal

I went up to this girl, she said, Hi, my name is Sheena
I thought she'd be good to go with a little Funky Cold Medina
She said, I'd like a drink, I said, Ehm - ok, I'll go get it
Then a couple sips she cold licked her lips, and I knew that she was with it
So I took her to my crib, and everything went well as planned
But when she got undressed, it was a big old mess, Sheena was a man
So I threw him out, I don't fool around with no Oscar Meyer wiener
You must be sure that the girl is pure for the Funky Cold Medina
You know, ain't no plans with a man
This is the 80's, and I'm down with the ladies
Ya know?
Break it down

Back in the saddle, lookin for a little affection
I took a shot as a contestant on _The Love Connection_
The audience voted, and you know they picked a winner
I took my date to the Hilton for Medina and some dinner
She had a few drinks, I'm thinkin soon what I'll be gettin
Instead she started talkin 'bout plans for our weddin
I said, Wait, slow down, love, not so fast says, I'll be seein ya
That's why I found you don't play around with the Funky Cold Medina
Ya know what I'm sayin
That Medina's a monster, y'all
Funky Cold Medina

Super Bowl Sunday!!!!

Another glori0us day. SuperBowl!!!!! who can deny it's one of the best holiday's of the year. My personal favorites. Went to a house party for the initial festivities, drank some beer, watched the game. A little closer than I thought but that was good. A lot better game than I'd th0ught it would be. We then headed over to the E for some post game festivities. Mike. Daniel and usual... We ran into Linda and Bigmom who watched the game there. Linda is starting her vacation so congrats to her. (Linda - Relax!!!! Take some you time and just relax. Get your massage done!!! you've earned it!) We also ran into Natalie, Kim and Russell. Locals who we run into once or twice a week. Regular readers may remember Natalie from my love frog, Mookie, whom I'm still trying to keep in touch with. Natalie will tell you I don't call or write but we all know that's not true. Despit many attempts I have not seen Mookie since Natalie's B-day party. Normally when I call he has been left unattended! We also ran into the 'rooms to go' crowd, a good bunch of people who like to have a good time at the E. Pretty busy for a Sunday night. Eventaully Daniel went home and Mike and I headed over to Dolan's. Mike wanted to meet Kim over there. (different Kim than listed above). We ended up all coming back to my house for a little party, movies, cigars, whatever. At any rate we had a good time. Actually I don't know that it is over yet!!! still partying for the superbowl!!!!!

UFC 51

OK, I was 6-3 on my predictions. Not bad if I do say so myself. A good night of fighting! Several KO's, good hamburgers, a few drinks and then we were off to Dolan's to see what was up. Nothing much going on there so we decided to go to Jonathan's and then home for the night. Nothing to exciting or funny on this night. Who knows what the Superbowl day will bring, we will find out soon enough. We're going to a superbowl party up in Nashville somewhere!!!!

OK I'm awake.

It's 2pm and I just woke up. What the hell happened last night????? Here's what I remember. We went to the Kats game. (I don't care how it's spelled, we went!) Mike, Daniel, John, Kat, Kat's sister and me. John's been sick all week so he went home after the game, the rest of us headed out to celebrate Kat's birthday the best we could. We got talked into going into "N-V" club on 2nd ave, pretty fun. they had a cover charge but $.01 beers. I got my money back on the cover! I got Mike's money back on the cover! I got Daniel's money back on the cover! Had Kat and her sister had to pay a cover I would have got that money back also. (Normally when we go out we don't get drunk, we do so much stupid shit eveyone thinks we're drunk but we're really not. Last night, I WAS DRUNK! I'm typically a funny guy, but when I get drunk my brain filter goes away and I'm told I am hilarious. Daniel kept laughing his ass off at me, he said he was going to write a bunch of stuff in here today about what I did.) I knew Mike was driving all night so I didn't have to worry about nothing. Right when we walked in Mike spotted this table full of beautiful women. When Daniel and I took the sisters to go danc the table of women approached Mike because of his Dale E. Jr. jacket, they loved it. We hung out with them for a while and then they headed up to Mrs. something's on Printers Alley. A karaoke place!!! Daniel and I (aka - those guys) headed straight for the mic.... After singing happy birhtday to Kat and rattling off a stuning version of 'you are my sunshine' we were cut off and asked never to sign again! There was another birthday girl there completely drunk, she had a gash on her head and was bleeding but still partying it up like crazy. We were out dancing and she kept trying to butt in. Mike and Daniel kept buying beer buy the bucket, 1 for them, 4 for me! Another wild and crazy night that ended in a trip to the WH!!!!! The mood was different and we didn't do any signing but still had good times. I do recall sitting at the WH and having Daniel tell me the invited a bunch of people from the N-V and Mrs. whatever's to my house this evening for the UFC so I guess we're having a big party, feel free to stop by. If Daniel tells on here all the stupid crap I did you can see him get another black eye. :) hast a la vista baby.

A Couple days off

Whew, I needed a couple days off from Mien Fuerer so I haven't been at work. I will have to return next Wednesday though. Maybe I'll find a new job before then. Been out to the bar a coupole times but no real adventures to speak of. I'll probably have a story or 2 after this weekend is over though. Tonight we're going to a Cats game. If there's no hockey we'll have to become arena football fans!!!! Tomorrow is UFC 51 (I Can"T Wait). Then of course is the Super Bowl. I hope it's a better game than I think it is going to be. I think New England will kill the Eagles. Sure TO will get his catches and a touchdown but I don't see much esle happening. One good thing is New England doesn't usually blow anyone out. But I think they will this weekend. As for the UFC we have 9 fights!!!!!! Top of the bill is Vitor Belfort vs. Tito Ortiz. I think Belfort will win. Both of these guys ar head cases though so either one coudl 'not show up' and prove me wrong. In the 2nd main event is Tim Sylva (6 ft 8 260) who's only loss came after getting his arm broke, he protested and wanted to continue but the DR wouldn't let him. He fights Andrei Arlofsky (6 ft 3 250). I like arlofsky's style and ability but Sylva is a mad man, don't see him losing to anyone. I think Broni will beat Sell even htough Baroni should never win he's a punk. I take Kyle over Irvin, Eilers over Buentello, Loiseau over Ray, Parisyan over Lylty, Diaz over Fickett and Tanner (from the Couture camp!) over Terrell. They've got a lot of striker vs striker match ups so we should be seeing a couple big knockouts on Saturday night. There's also a big boxing match on showtime so I might have to pull the 2nd TV out of the bedroom and watch all the fights.

Mein Furer

This is what I call my boss. She is a micro manager. She informed me today that it is my responsibility to know EXACTLY where ever file in my area is at any given time during the day. If she calls me at 1pm and asks where file XYZ is I should be able to say....Oh, that was folded at 714am and moved out to the inserter at 717am. Should be done there by 1013am. And so on. We get about 250 files per day and turn them around in our shop in 48hours. So that's about 500 files at any given time. Siehk Hiel Mein Furer!

sorry, had to vent!

A normal Monday

Wahoo!!! Happy Monday!!! (yesterday of course) Went down to the E for some trivia and good times, Mike was down, Laura and Lorie came out to hang with us.
A quick side story. Laura and Lorie are both very attractive women who dress very nice. They do where clothes that are a little revealing in a very tasteful way. Very level headed and down to Earth.
OK - I said that to say this..... So while hanging out at the E there were some hotel guests that could not take there eyes off either one of the girls. (In all fairness I will say that they also were making comments about Linda, another attractive women that hangs out at the E, who was sitting at the other side of the bar with a lot of the regulars///the other Lara had left before they got there) People wonder why I hang out there??? Linda has told me in the past how a lot of the hotel guests will hit on the regulars of the bar but this was the first time I got to see it in person. What made it all the better is that these were some real gems of the mail species. One of them actually kept walking by, acting like he was on the phone trying to take a picture of their legs! No joke. On a couple of occasions when the girls needed to go to the rest room the used thier 'walk' to really drive these perv's crazy. It was very funny to watch them drool. One time as Lorie was strutting and shaking her way to the rest room Brent (in true Brent fashion) the bar tender walks over after catching this out of the corner of his I and in a very loud voice says "is she doing that on purpose" which got us all laughing hysterically. After a while I needed to go to the rest room so I strutted, shook it like a salt shaker and then shook it like a polaroid picture! While I'm sure it did not have the same effect on the guys and I am equally sure it was not attractive on any level it was funnier than shit. At one point I even "accidently" dropped my hat and had to bend over and pick it up. I think I got a standing O for that. That's and O for ovation for all you perv's out there! I ended up in a poker game and one 20 bucks, Taco's are on me at taco bell!!!
