Merry Christmas

First off. Merry Christmas. YEAH MERRY CHRISTMAS. I'm shocked by the fact that everyone says happy holidays and seems to hold back on saying that. I walked into Target the other day and saw Happy Hanukkah. No problem there. It's cool. But why can't people muster the courage to say Merry Christmas anymore?

Personally I don't care, I say it to anyone who tells me "Happy Holidays." It's ridiculous. As much as this country says they don't discriminate against peoples beliefs they are totally discriminating against their own it seems. I understand, they don't want to upset anyone persons or culture but let's just enjoy the day for what it is...

It's a day of family, friends, and gifts. Gifts in any form - food, time, hugs, kisses, call of duty modern warfare 2, fur coats, mistle toes, cigars and other such things of whatever nature. It's the day when kids like me run down stairs with eyes as big as my being hoping that Santa dropped something besides coal off for him...but in all honesty, there are people living on the streets, cold, hungry and sick. Take a minute to give a gift to the Salvation Army and give someone you don't know a Merry Christmas as well...



Moral: The gift of giving is much more rewarding than that of receiving...

New Years Resolutions....

It's only a week away people...I still don't have any yet. I really should start taking a little more me time and doing some soul searching, also the post I put out about a week or so ago did seem like that. That's more long term life goals though. I need to figure out the new years resolution thing so I can say that something I did came to fruition.

In past years I haven't really ever made a resolution. By the time New Years Eve came around I had been getting pummelled by coursework and work and getting things done that I hadn't thought of it. I'd break in the new year thinking this next year will be better than the last, but how could it be if I don't have a game plan, right?

I need it to be something more tangible you know. I always see the things Something more results driven that can be accomplished say 3 months at a time. That way I could get 4 or so things accomplished a year. Nothing ambiguous like oh I want to join a gym. Yeah, and? I want Janet Jackson Abs. Oh yeah sarvosh, you want JJ Abs. She's got terrific abs people. Probably the best in the game. Plus I would rather work out to her than watch Billy Blanks do one more tae bo fucking kick...



Moral: Keep laughing - imma have the best abs on the block - or the keg I'm still rocking

Favorite Christmas Movies

AHHHH Christmas. I love this time of year. Minus fluffy white death (FWD), or what some people refer to it as, snow. The only time I want to see it is when I am skiing and that's once every long while. And for those fucks who say they like snow, they are the people who don't get up off their asses and shovel a 2 car garage along with the wrap around sidewalk...Yeah, thought so...

Along with the cold weather and FWD, we also get the crazy mall drivers. The old ladies who hit you with their bags as they walk around carrying 20 times their body weights. We turn into ants come Christmas somehow. It's really an un-natural phenomena that I can't seem to understand. It may have something to do with adrenaline but the results from the research aren't in yet...

However, we also have those fun films that we all love to watch, including some of my favorite christmas films - drum roll please...brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....brrrrrrrrr...brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr JOYYY TO THE WORRRRRRLLLLDDDDD................National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation! Home Alone! Love Actually! A Christmas Carol! Miracle on 34th Street! and Scrooged!



Moral: Enjoy those films if you haven't seen them - Christmas Vacation and Scrooged are the greasiest of the bunch...

Bond 23

I was just listening to the James Bond theme song on this classical and jazz itunes radio station while reading all the mistakes on yesterday's blog and was thinking about how Clive Owen was supposed to act as the next James Bond and for some reason he didn't fit the bill. Maybe it was the cut of his jib, or his acting in shoot'em up, or his face...

Any which way you cut it up, they decided to go with a not so conventional Bond, and by not so conventional I mean the way bond was written to be - shrewd, edgy and a bit of an asshole - and so D-Craig became our man. Probably because he played a similar role in layer cake years before that caught the casting crews eyes but that's neither here nor there...

Well, maybe it is here, probably not there, but things are moving along nicely for this performances in Bond. He's got Bond 23 in pre-production stage, which is slated to be released in twenty eleven sometime. The three year break is good for me because the last film didn't do much for me as he was out for revenge for losing his love - I hope he's a lot tougher and a lot less emotion in the future films...



Moral: I hate it when studios bastardize shit to gross a profit...

Shoot'em up

No, not the movie. Although Clive Owen and Monica Belucci do make a rather attractive yet awkward tandem in the film, so it was worth mentioning, and I'd recommend checking it out, if only to watch the single sex scene between them. Trust me you'll enjoy it, it's nothing graphic but rather comedic as far as how to kill multiple people in one scene goes...

No, I'm not talking about heroin either...I'm talking about my first experience going paint balling. My cousin Drico turned 13, so he asked Dzl and I to go paint balling. We found an indoor venue that would suit us well and figured it would be a blast to shoot a bunch of 13 year olds. Yes, I know, pick on someone my own size - but being short has it's advantages...

We randomized teams and went full force at each other. I shot my wonderful sister in the head about 5 or 6 times...she thought I wouldn't shoot at her...ain't no such thing as love in the arena though...my cousin Drico got shot in his nuts by the sharp shooter of the day - J-Bone, who also shot a Yianni in the ass and his girl between the eyes. Legit folks - right between the eyes (yes we wore cups and masks but the splat on her face shield was beautiful)



Moral: Paintballs are full of fish oil - greasy...I think so...
