Making it happen

I'm not quite where I want to be but I'm getting there. At least in fantasy basketball - i've given up as far as fantasy football goes because in the 4 leagues I'm in, I'm in the bottom of the pile! It's not working right at all. My teams on paper should be good - but whatever - it's a lost cause at this point in the season...

I'm definitely in 3rd place in basketball though and only 2.5 games back - which just means that it's only a matter of time before i take over first place as soon as my team kicks in high gear once R. Lewis makes it happen and starts performing consistently for the magic...

I;m not worried though, I always perform well in bball, at least in the ead to head leagues that I play in cause I got smoked in roto last year. I just can't wait to get into the playoffs and make it happen this year. I'm getting tired of being strong all year and not performing well in the playoffs.

Moral: Continue scouring for gems on the waiver wire

Greased up Turkies!

Just want to take a moment and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving where all of the greasiest foods will be ingested in large quantities as you feast with family and friends on this day. May your turkeys be stuffed - your stuffings be salty - the crust on your pies be crispy - and the cranberry sauce be tarty...

It's literally one of my favorite new holidays to celebrate because it's just spoonful after spoonful of grease and you don't have to get up for work the next day. Gets me all fired up and I can't really stop until I've put myself in a food coma. But isn't that just the best? Eat so much that by the time 5pm rolls around you knock out on the couch watching football...

Sometimes - this time I can't be doing that because I have some guests coming in from out of country to get things going and for that I'm going to be drinking espresso martinis, shout out to the bartender in LA that introduced me to this - what a bad influence she was :-P...but it works to keep me wired and loose and fired up...

Moral: Get greasy with it...

Loz Feliz - Par 3

While in LA I went golfing. This was the second time I'd ever gone out onto the green to partake the rich and relaxing activity. Of course, Sy-bone and I totally play the part. We get dressed in khakis and V-neck sleeveless plaid vests and head on down to the links.

BTW Los Feliz is the same golf course that swingers did a scene on, and back to the story. We get there, around 3pm cause for no good reason were we slow to get out of the house that day - and i head on over to rent lefty clubs. Well, they stop renting clubs out at 2pm because of policy - but they were nice enough to let me use Sy-bone's clubs.

No big deal, right? Right. Well, except the fact that the club set was right handed. Yeah - so the second time ever golfing I am golfing with an unnatural swing. Regardless I think it worked in my favor towards the last three holes. I crushed one about 150 yards with a 4 Iron. Yeah I did! And on the last hole...

Moral: Sometimes you gotta switch it up to get better...

About 10 pounds

That's about what I gained when I went over to cali this past week. My boy A.C. and I ate like mad men. And one of the nights that we went out to eat it was homemade Chinese food. And by homemade I mean the menu was not written in English. The best part about all was that the entire meal was going to be a surprise for me.

Let me just preface this with the food was absolutely amazing! Between the two of us we ran a 60 dollar bill - which is unheard of between two people at a joint like this. You go in there and order one or two items off the menu and call it a day. No, not us. We're champions - and we got after it.

Here's the list:
Onion Pancakes
Scallion Pancakes
Fried Vegetables and Tofu
Shredded chicken with Noodles
Noodles with Peanut sauce
Steamed Pork
Pork slices
Shredded Pork Stomach
Beef tendons with sweet honey sauce
Stinky Tofu (shown below)!

Moral: Fuckin amatuers - you want stinky tofu - hell I can get you stinky tofu by 3 o'clock.

I just can't stop loving you...

I've said it before, and I am going to say it again. I love you. I love you Virgin America! I. Love. You! Here's the deal. I had tried to use the American Airlines voucher that was given to me to fly from Frisco to LAX. So i called up AA and tried to get them to come through on their promise, I gave them the voucher number and they needed the issue date and a bunch of other information that I didn't have because I didn't have the physical voucher with me.

The voucher number should have been fine though. It's a fuckin tracking number. Why do you need 332 more things from me when you fucked up - issued a voucher for a 100 bucks for me - told me I can use it whenever - then tell me that I can't use it because I have to send it in, in advance, in order to be able to use it. What the fuck is that shit about?

So I decided to pay a little more just to fly Virgin Air! I upgraded to first class for another 75 bucks - which btw includes free bag checks, free movies, free food, and free drinks - and went on my merry fucking way. Not to mention that I had free wifi on the plane the entire time I have been 35000 feet in the air.

Moral: There really is no substitute for the quality that you get with that airline.
