If I were a better son, I would be in Othello Washington right now.
Instead, I’m about to go paint the town red once again. Because that’s how I roll, I guess.
Here’s a picture from Family Xmas one year ago.
I haven’t cut my hair in over 11 months now, so it’s getting kind of long. I’m ready to cut it short again, but before I do that, do you think it would be awesome if I got it all curly like Chad Reed?? Please advise either way, or offer more suggestions
If you know me, then you know that I practically live off of energy drinks (and buffalo wings and ice cream)! Mike just gave me the best birthday present evAr! A case of Monster AND a case of Red Bull! AMAZING!
You should go to Mike and Kathy’s blog and tell them how much you wish you were tight with them, like I am!
So, if you’re like, “OH, SNAP! I forgot Christian’s turning OLD(er) this weekend!!”, I have a list of things that will give me wood, but you probably won’t be able to find them very easily.
Stoked on being Pumped – C’mon! With a name like that, how bad can it be? Actually, the trailer made me want to go ride!
ThrillBillies – I imagine Brandon will be getting me this. It’s kind of a tradition that Brandon gets me the latest Nitro Circus DVD each year, but so far he hasn’t been able to get his hands on the goods. That means it’s fair game for you!
Dig BMX Magazine – This is one of my favorite magazines, but it’s a little on the pricey side. Except, it’s kind of not when you factor in the free t-shirt! I already have 2 of them, and am looking forward to a 3rd. Size XL, plz.
Widmer Hefeweizen – It’s been a few months since I’ve been able to drink one of these, and I really miss it! Supposedly, it’s sold in Florida, but I haven’t been able to find it on South Beach. Maybe your grocery store will be more fortunate.
Red Robin Seasoning- So, at Red Robin they have bottles of their special seasoning on the tables, and you can buy your own bottle to take home. I NEED SOME!! Unfortunately, the nearest Red Robin is in Georgia.
I thought I was going out again tonight, but I just looked at the clock, and my phone hasn’t rang, as far as I know, so I think it’s a safe bet to say that I’m staying in tonight. That’s probably a good thing because I think I have woken up hung over the past 7 mornings in a row! A break isn’t going to hurt.
So, I’ve been questioning Mac OS X.5 Leopard’s worth. Like, is it worth $130 or not? And it has been pretty hard for me to see that much value in it, but tonight something happened…
To be able to browse this folder (beware of goatse and tubgirl!) in coverflow mode really made it worth it for me. I was trying to find some old pics that I knew were in that directory, but I had no idea what the file names were. I had a local copy, so I just browsed it in my finder. I would find the images I was looking for, and drag them into another folder so I could note theri file names later on.
In this process, I realized that it’s been just over 2 years since I worked at District Lab. Here are a few pics from that era. (click on each pic for its original liveurinal post + more pics)
Sidekick falls asleep!
You know you have a pretty awesome job when you get to use a $600 chair as an ottoman!
We drank beer for Cinco de Mayo in 2004…
…and in 2005!
…and sometimes we would make Gustavo look gay!
…and we took a lot of pictures of eachother. That place was a lot of fun! I miss those guys.
H00ray! I finally made it to the fashion section of a news paper!
You can probably remember back to this fashion show I went to last year, but what you probably didn’t know is that I got into some (West Palm?) news paper!
I was having a look at this myspace deal and I noticed a slideshow that looked familiar. Then I looked closer and HOLY CRAP THAT’S ME AND CHAD!!
I got kind of tore that night, so I barely remember it. I wish someone would have told me I was in the paper a year and a half ago! The fashion section, even!
Here is a picture of me and Brandon with a border patrol lady at the Canadian border. We were on our way to a BMX competition at The Garage Skate Park in Nelson, B.C.
I think this was 11 years ago this weekend.
So, this might be pretty nerdy, but I’m fine with that. I am right now watching AMA Motocross from the Red Bud National in Buchanan Michigan, LIVE ON THE INNERNETS zOMGZ!!!
In detail (which is the nerdy part), I have the video playing in Windows Media Player via Windows XP on my iMac, thanks to Parallels. Then on my iMac’s 2nd monitor, I have the same video playing in Quicktime, but delayed a bit so I have an ad-hoc instant replay. I just have to move my head to the right a bit to see what I just saw again. The twist to this is that I’m actually not listening to audio that accompanies the video… I am instead listening to the live audio feed because I have a very non-gay boner for Jason Weigandt, (that was meant as a joke!) and, frankly, I feel that his announcing makes the racing a lot more exciting.
Finally, on my laptop, I am chatting with my buds (just make up a username… leave the password box empty), watching the lap times (I miss being able to color label the riders like I could with the Supercross timing thing), and looking at the track map and just getting annoyed by mototalk people, and extra frustrated that I can’t interact with them because I let my membership lapse and I don’t have $30 ear tagged for a renewal.
If watching MX on the net isn’t your cup of tea, you can watch the 2nd Motocross class moto at 6 PM on Speed!
So, that’s what I’m up to on this rainy first day of July. Come to think of it, this is pretty much how I spent 2 Sundays ago, too. And actually, I guess that if I’m going to paint a picture, I should tell the whole story (WHAT? I have no idea what I just typed!)… My MX Sunday actually started late Saturday night when I was trying to be asleep by midnight so I could wake up by 6 AM so I could watch FIM World Motocross via MediaZone.com, but I ended up falling asleep somewhere around 3! I woke up at 5:50, on the couch, so I loaded the video stream from Sweeden on my iMac (in Windows) and tried to watch it from bed. A few laps into the 1st MX2 moto, I fell asleep. I woke up many laps later, and Josh Coppins was quite a ways back. I think this was the 2nd MX1 moto, but I really can’t remember. I kept waking up, watching a lap or 2, and then falling asleep again. I still don’t know who won the MX2 overall, but I plan on downloading and watching the motos again later tonight, or maybe tomorrow.
I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL I CAN WATCH EVERY AMA MOTOCROSS/SUPERCROSS RACE LIVE ON THE INTERNET!! Even if it’s only the 1st motos like now. It gives me enough of a mental image of whats going on that I can run the 2nd motos in my head. Especially with Jason’s excellent announcing.
P.S. In making this post I pretty much missed the first lites moto. Updating the blog was a bad choice.
Best email of the day!
P.S.: Yes, I know I’m fat. No, I don’t plan on going on a diet! You’re right, trucker hats are SO 2002 zOMG!! And thank you for noticing that my sweet, sweet beard is totally going gray. What do you want from me? I’M (almost) OLD!
First off, skip the first 30 seconds of this video. I have no idea what they were thinking by putting that animation in there.
Next, LOLLERZ at this kid’s trophy being bigger than he is!!
Third, if you’re tubby then watch the video, but don’t read any further. Especially if you’ve ever thought about letting me sleep with you. Yes, I know I’m a jackass. That’s why God put me here!
4 Year Old MX Champion
Heaven forbid that I ever knock some girl up and have to become a dad (especially a fat girl! Man, I SO DO NOT WANT to be the father for a fat girl’s kid!! I mean, I’m not trying to hate on fat girls… Obviously if there is a possibility of me being a fat girl’s kid, then I like fat girls enough to fuck them. But to have to wake up next to a fat girl every day and say “Yeah, that’s our kid…” would be… Not good! This was actually the subject of a long conversation at Felt the other night. And it’s not just fat girls… You could actually substitute the word “fat” with “lazy/messy/dumb/???” or even a smoker. And now that I’ve said all of that, I’m sure I’ll end up having to marry a lazy, messy, dumb, fat smoker girl! I better keep my shit in check!! Also, HOLY ULTIMATE ASIDE, or what? The kid’s mom in this video made me go off on fat girls. I know tons of super rad fat girls and I will fuck them, I just don’t want to have to be married to them!), but if that should happen I hope my kid won’t still need training wheels when he/she’s 4 years old!
Someone needs to get this kid in Thor gear, because he hauls!!
FECK! I just had a whole bunch of stuff typed here about my new laptop, my busted knee and phone, but I accidentally hit the back button on my mouse and now it’s all gone.
I’m way too lazy to type it all out again so you get the nutshell edition! I’m an idiot for not saving often.
Tried to take a picture of construction finally happening at the 12th and Washington Starbucks today, but I just got snow on my screen and actually had to pull the battery to get it to function as a phone. My phone also stopped getting a working signal while I am at home a few weeks ago, and apparently this ailment has spread to work now too. In short, I am in dire need of a new phone. The problem is that the Apple phone doesn’t come out until sometime next month (oh hay it’s THIS month now!!) so I have to work with a mostly busted RAZR and wait for the iPhone, or take it and get a blackjack instead. I am very undecided on what to do.
Speaking of busted, have you seen my right knee lately? This knee has been giving me grief for 3 years now, and I have no idea why. As far as I know, I never injured it. I just remember waking up and being like “Oh hey, my knee is sore!” and it’s pretty much been that way ever since. Except sometimes it’s a lot more sore than usual. Like for the past week or 2! the dang thing swelled up and has been super sore/tender. Again, I have no idea why and I have no plan to find out why/treat the problem. I have faith that it will return to it’s usual lower level of pain sooner or later. It hasn’t been too much of an issue lately… I just try to stay off of it other than walking to work, which is super close. However, I am quickly running out of food so I might be having a lot of meals delivered if this thing doesn’t sort itself out in a hurry. A ride all the tori anus way to Publix at this point in time (and pain) is not sounding like such a great time. Maybe if they had a killer sale on ice cream or something it would be worth it. Otherwise, I’ll keep La Sandwicherie and Cheeseburger Baby on speed dial. Except… I have to limp outside to even make any calls! Hurry up with the iPhone already!! I’m getting hungry.
