Vader Set A Trap For Him

February 3, 2009

This is pretty nerdy, but those of you who know me aren’t surprised by this.

I have purchased my first adult LEGO product, the Darth Vader TIE Advanced pictured below:

I’ll probably detail the build up here and on my Flickr.  And I’ll probably wear my R2-D2 beanie whilst doing it.

Saturday Night: check
Happenin’ bar: check
Fresh duds: check
Person/people with me: . . .

Winter makes me want to put a gun in my mouth.

J/k please don’t call the suicide hotline on me.


RAD was a great movie

Now, I’m not a big BMX guy or anything, but I have to pass this video along. It’s just some of the sickest shit I ever done seen on a bike. Make sure you’re watching at around 3:20 in the video.

And yes, RAD was an awesome movie.


Good News / Bad News

November 21, 2004

Well, it’s been one of those weekends. Action-packed really. I mean, I usually come into work on Monday and answer the inevitable “What’d you do this weekend?” with “Eh, not much.” Boy will I have a lot to say this time.

Let’s start with Friday night. Poker night with a bunch of work buddies over at The Canon’s place. Well, guess who finally came out on top? I’ve put in my dues and lost a good chunk of change to all my friends in poker. Now, it was my turn to reap the rewards of diligent play. But really, I just kept getting awesome cards all night long (in poker speak, I flopped the nuts) and walked away with a much fuller wallet.

So, that was great and all. Great start to a great weekend right? Wrong. Fast forward to Saturday night. Heading home from Ryan’s place after some dinner and halo when BAM! got rear-ended. This being a forceful enough impact to send me careening into the car in front of me. Then it seemed the guy that hit me didn’t notice that he hit me, because for some reason he decided to gun it and speed off as if nothing had happened. Luckily, I don’t shock easily and this didn’t surprise me one iota. So, I proceeded to tear ass after him and got his license plate number and make/model. That son-of-a-bitch will pay. Even if I have to go all Falling Down on him. Anywho, I pulled over and checked on the gal that I got rammed into and we pulled into the nearest parking lot to call the cops and insurance companies and what-not and where-to-for. Long night of waiting around. Neck still hurts.

Here’s a pic of some of the damage. It’s very graphic, so those with weak stomachs may want to turn away:
Miata go bang

So that was Saturday.

But Sunday was destined lifted my spirits since I took my first stab at smoking a whole turkey in the ol’ Charbroil Silver Smoker. We decided to have a friendly little pre-Thanksgiving celebration. So, I got up at 4:30am to get started (you ain’t gonna ever hear someone say “fast-smoked”). Long story short, it turned out GREAT. Best damn turkey I ever done ate if I do say so myself. Moist and juicy. Succulent. Fantabulous and such.

Here’s a picture of it in the smoker. It’s about 3/4 done here:

And here it is at the end of the night:

The Carcass

So, at least I ended the weekend on an up-note. . . except for the impromptu poker game after dinner. But I only lost 5 bucks so who’s complaining. I’ve still got my health right? Right?

Damn my neck hurts.

Apparently, one of the ten worst album covers of all time:

Zip Zap Rap

And if you think the album cover is bad, wait til you hear one of the songs!


Poker? We barely knew her

November 1, 2004

Shout-outs to all my peeps who showed up for poker night this past Friday. Lots of fun. Perhaps even more fun was had in the “Loser’s Corner” where X-Box Tennis and Football ruled the land.

Maybe we should just have an X-Box party next time? It would save me some money.


Birfday recap

July 12, 2004

So Alana threw me a big b-day shindig this past weekend at ye olde Elbow Room. I have to say, I haven’t gotten that loaded in a VERY long time. Apparently, that’s what happens when you do several shots of whiskey. Lesson learned. I should probably apologize to the telephone pole I desecrated with my vomit outside the bar.

Big Thanks go out to everyone who came out! Who says 26 is an unmemorable age!?! Booyeah.

Hopefully, I’ll get some pics from Frances and Sheri soon to share with everyone.
