Best Scene in Transformers 2

Wonderful Things in Life

Often times in this busy world, we forget to enjoy things. It has been said that the simple things in life are those most easily enjoyed- or something like that, anyway. The truth is, I like a lot of little things. Little things make a big part of my life. SO, without furter a do, here's a few things I enjoy. You may agree, or not. If you've never heard, seen, or smelled these things, try it.

1. The smell of gasoline. Yes, I know it's toxic. That's why I don't huff it. But ever since I was little, something about this aroma has been pleasent to me. I always loved going to the gas station with my parents, just so I could smell it. I think it's because, in my DNA somewhere, I really need to be a NASCAR driver or some kind of racer....

2. Seeing my name spelled correctly on personalized pencils, keychains, etc. We've all seen them. Little personalized trinkets with your name on them. Thing is, these only come in the more common names. And while Brian is a common enough name, that is NOT how my name is written on my birth certificate. It is Br-Y-an. Therefore, my name very rarely appears on these little goodies. And while I don't necessarily wish to purchase anything like this, it's nice to look at them and see my name, spelled with a "y" and all.

3. Acoustic covers of "real" songs. While I love to hear the original version of songs, I also love to hear an artist take out all the flair and flash that goes with an album version of a song or even a song in concert, and strips it down to a guitar/piano/violin and their voice. Even better- someone other than the original artist does it. I find great pleasure in finding great talent on websites such as YouTube, where someone out there has the ability to play Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train on violin or sing Hellogoodbye's Here in Your Arms without the assitance of a computer or vocater.

4. Fog. I love fog. I love to look out the window in the morning, and not be able to see a thing. Few things in the world are more peaceful than being on a smooth lake early in the morning, just as the sun is coming up, and seeing fog rising from the water. Speaking of lakes.....

5. Catching fish. I love to fish. I love to compete against humans in sports, but few things are as rewarding as beating a fish. Fish, while not as intelligent, have far more advantage than humans. In sports, we are both adapted to the playing field. We are all adapted to land. When fishing, the fish is in its element- water. We are in ours- land. So then it comes down to who is better adapted- the water-liver v. the air-breather. Such a challenge.

6. Sunlight. I hate rain. With a passion. If I lived in Seattle, I might possibly have jumped off the Space Needle by now. Nothing can perk up my day like stepping out of a building into warm sunlight. I just really should live in the American Southwest, I suppose.

7. Cherry Coke from Chick-FIl-A. Try it.

8. Hitting a bulls-eye with a gun, bow, etc. If you've ever shot anything that will shoot, then you know how rewarding it is when you hit the target. Even better? When you place a bullet or arrow right where the four lines meet up to make the X in the centre. Oh yes.

That's all I have for now. I'll ponder on this, and get back at you with some more. In the meantime, look for some of the things that cheer you up, and post them as a comment. :)

The Beauty of Sleep-Writing or Texting

We've all done it: text or write while falling asleep. Your words get mixed up, your spelling dies, and things get funny. Here's an excerpt from an essay I was writing tonight- enjoy. Pay special attention to the last line....

"This expansion of the federal government was exactly what members of the Anti-Federalist party claimed would occur over time. Such men as Thomas Jefferson felt that the Constitution allowed room for the central government would eventually grow to be an overbearing, maniacal bully that would boss around the states. With the constant growth of the federal, how can you say that they are wrong? It would seem that the inverse is, in fact, the “real deal.” The federal government is taking over, with the states being put to the side. This is the very shift in power that the Federalists said would not occur, and that the Anti-Federalists said was just a matter of time. Sure, it’s been a long time, with no food or water in the backpack."

If you can figure out how I managed to go from the expansion of federalistic power in America to having no food or water in a backpack, I'll give you a cookie.

Coach Ruddell's Inspirational Ship Speech


This is the inspirational speech Coach Ruddell loves to give about people who quit...
"Back when I was still coaching, and we'd lose three or so in a row, I'd pull the guys into the locker room and get my chalkboard. And I'd draw this ship, and it's sinking. Down at the bottom, you see these guys with buckets. They are working as hard as they can, bailing out water. Cause they want to save the ship. Then, at the top, you've got the rats. The rats aren't trying to save the ship. They're looking to jump out and get onto another boat. They're quitters. I don't even want them getting on another boat. I wanna kick them off and watch em drown. I want to watch them drown. You should want to be down there with hammers and nails and buckets, bailing water and fixing holes, trying to save what you got. And don't be up at the top yelling down, 'Do this, do that.' Get down there and do it yourself. Be a winner- that's who is saving the ship.
Give all you have. Ever heard someone say, 'Give 110%?' Guess what- that's impossible. You can't give more than 100%, and if you do that, you've given it all you have and you're dead. You're dead. So, whatcha really wanna give is 99%, that way you can stay alive. And if you're walking off the field or the court, and you can hold yourself up and don't need an oxygen tank, then you didn't give 99%; you gave more like 95% at best. The only acceptable way to lose is to die, and then be declared the loser by death. It's ok to lose if you die. Then you gave it all you had."

A Shoplifter Is Stopped

So, I was going to get off my shift in ten minutes when a co-worker of mine yells, "Hey, we have a customer trying to walk out with groceries!" Yee-haw, I love shoplifters.

So, Heather at the help desk calls frantically for our manager via intercom, as the man is walking slowly out the down with the stolen goods. He's yelling, "I'll be right out here!"

Now, I have front row seats. I am standing next to the help desk, which has a spectacular view of both U-Scan, where the customer is pulling a Danny Ocean from, and the door of which he is leaving through. Next to me is Walter, our fuel attendent for the evening.

Now, allow me to tell you about Walter. Walter has never had great health, at least since I've worked with him. I mean, the man walked with a cane in the not-so-distant past. Keep this in mind.......

Walter puts his Coke down, and sprints toward the door. He turns out the door, runs up to the shoplifter, and literally snatches the cart from his grasp. Walter brings the cart in and hands it off to Mr. Ley-our manager for the night-and then meanders back on off to fuel like nothing had ever occurred.

Mr. Ley then confronts the now-livid thief. This man does not intend to pay, but Mr. Ley sees it otherwise. They, as well as the cart full of groceries, return to U-Scan.

Mr. Ley insists the man pay up. At this point, the man gets up in my managers face and is screaming, then starts pounding his fist on the U-Scan attendent's station.

Now, Mr. Ley is an intimidating man. Picture this: young guy, perhaps 30, with a shaved head. Stands approximently 6 feet, 4 inches tall, weighing in at 190+ of nearly all muscle. I wouldn't scream in his face for anything.

Mr. Ley, as we assume, mentioned the fact that the Nicholasville Police were on their way. At this point, the man calmed down, payed up, and left.

It is at this point I leave you. The police were in route when I walked out the door, and I have heard no new news.

Did I mention that I love shoplifters?

John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN ) for 6 am. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA ) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG ).He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA ), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE ) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA).After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA ) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO ) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN ) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA ) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY ) filled it with GAS (from Saudi Arabia ) and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB. At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his computer (made in MALAYSIA ), John decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL ), poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE ) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA ), and then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in AMERICA AND NOW HE'S HOPING HE CAN GET HELP FROM A PRESIDENT MADE IN KENYA !

Kimbo Slice vs. Roy Nelson

Kimbo and Roy fought tonight on the Ultimate Fighter. Kimbo lost due to TKO in the second round. Reason Kimbo was TKO'd- Nelson was so fat that he squished Kimbo. That was out of control. Kimbo should be brought in to replace the injured guy next week, tho. Hopefully, Kimbo's next fight will be against someone smaller than Jabba the Hutt. KIMBO!!!!!

Zombies

I saw Zombieland tonight, courtesy of a certain Mr. Todd Hart and the fact that his father owns Mad Mushroom. Ahh, nothing beats free viewings of movies- before they come out. This movie is thoroughly hilarious, by the way, and is worth seeing when you get the chance. One part of the movie references "Zombie Kill of the Week." So, I'm going to come up with some "ZKofW" contenders.

Contestant One: A native of Columbia, South Carolina, this person killed a zombie by way of throwing an angrey Steve Spurrier at them. After Spurrier ripped said zombie to shreds, he ran over this zombie with a Cockaboose.

Contestant Two: This person hails from the downtown section of Chicago. Thier zombie-killing method: leading a zombie up to the roof of the Sears Tower, only to trick them into jumping off the edge after a mannequin.

Finally, Contestant Three: This woman is an Alaskan that managed to get a zombie into the frozen wilderness, only to lead it into a group of angry walruses. The angry, over-grown seals impaled the zombie with their tusks.

Please vote on your winner. :)

Here I Am

Hey, so, guess what. I'm a loser. What kinda guy blogs? hahaha Oh well, should be interesting.

So, the point of this blog is basically for me to just ramble. Ramble about work. Ramble about school. Ramble about life. I'm a rambler.

I wish I knew if "rambler" was a word- too bad I'm too lazy to look it up! Someone wanna do that?? :)

I was out of school today. I love three day weekends. And, um, well.... I discovered how un-motivated I am. It took me almost three hours to get goin today. Then I mowed. And went to work. Fairly boring day, to be honest. Work was a bit chaotic, but not note-worthy, to be honest. Trust me, there will be plenty of work stories........

I saw part of Rocky for the first time today, and part of Rocky II. I need to watch those.

That's pretty much all I've got for today- all kinds of new ideas for this thing. I'll work on it.

T-Minus six days until Public Enemies vs. All Your Disc vs. Faculty!
