So we just watched Star Trek, and it was actually pretty good.  I even got a kick out of the unintentionally funny (older) Spock, and how close it seemed he was going to lose his dentures while he was talking.

Now we can't wait for G.I. Joe and Transformers

*  *  *

Using my breadmaker for the second time.  It's going to be about ready in 3 minutes.  If only my mouth didn't hurt so dang much

Pain Or Dizziness?

So I think I'll live with the pain.  I don't think my body reacts well with Tylenol 3 and all its damn codeine.  I feel so loopy.  Is this what it's like to be drunk?

Can't wait for this uncomfortableness to go away.  Mind you, this time around (as opposed to the last time I had the other wisdom teeth removed) seems to be going much better.  I'm already back to solid food, even though it's killing me to only chew on one side of my mouth

*  *  *

Had a good time last night playing board games with Miknifer and Kirly.  Taboo and Cranium are fun.  Yep, board games.  Not that I was ever a "party-hardy" kind of guy.  Oh screw it, who am I kidding...this is my kind of fun now

Found Something New That Makes Me Tick

Getting a new magazine, and then losing it without as much as even looking at the cover.

Dammit, where the hell did I leave it?

Isn't It Supposed To Be My Gums Hurting?

So why the hell does my neck and shoulders ache so much?  I think I'm recovering fine, but the body aches remind me of something a person going through the flu would feel like.

Unless...swine flu?!?  Oh crap

Drugged Up

Feeling the effects of the anesthesia wearing off, and drugged up on Tylenol 3.  Bluk.  Feeling crappy...

I think I'll go for a nap

I Can't Watch This Crap

Damn Cleveland Cavaliers...I put all my eggs in your (band)wagon, and this is what happens?  Aside from the King, the rest of y'alls are garbage

*  *  *

Looks like work is picking up again.  I foresee some late days again.  Of course this wouldn't happen it, you know, I was dicking around so much these past few weeks

*  *  *

I will be without two teef tomorrow, perhaps even losing some wisdom.  At least this time I'll be knocked out.  I hope the recovery period will be faster this time

More than a month later, and finally my new collection of glasses have arrived.  I really, really hope my prescription doesn't change drastically in, say, the next year.  I now have nine pairs!  (not a typo)

*  *  *

Ate dinner at my parents house while Sharon is away on a one-day business trip.  Really disheartens me to see them eat so lousy (I had three pieces of Popeye's chicken!  I think I'm going to be sick).  I can only say so much to them, as I watch them eat horrible food after horrible food and not exercise it off.  Sucks

Piglet It Is?

So I'm getting anxious about this BBQ gittogether we're gonna have on Canada Day...anxious as in excited.  My Dad is making the actual skewer for the meat, I bought some "Canada" t-shirts and I just bought charcoal!  But now I have to find a meat supplier, which I think I may have from my buddy Tabico.  I think if the piglet is much cheaper than a lamb, then a piglet it will be.

Now then, I just have to get over that other kind of anxiety and hope my neighbours don't call the fire department on us

Oh Crap My Finger

That's what I felt like when I jambed it hard this morning.  Still hurts.  Argh.

Good thing I worked all this overtime recently...this lamb is gonna be crazy expensive!  Luckily my Dad is gonna make the skewer for me.  But whateves; if anything, I just hope I don't screw it up

Sharon started watching this show "Southland".  It's pretty good, actually.

I jumped on the Cleveland Cavaliers bandwagon.  It's a little tough right now; I thought they were gonna cruise to the finals.  Now it looks like the Magic are the favourites.

Started looking for bikes and bike racks.

My wife literally just screamed right now due to a bug.  Sometimes I wish she was a little braver when it came to bugs (yep, subtle hint just inserted)

That's what I was saying as the late night seafood buffet beckoned at Donny and Robin's wedding.  We were also sitting at a table with a bunch of Newfies, and I swear they crack me up

Also worked the Water Festival earlier this morning.  What time is it?  It's been a long day

Be A Mute

Apparently that's what I have to be at work in order not to have allegations flung your way. Screw that. Seriously, I don't think I've ever worked with such dysfunctional people before...

Like A Brick...Wall

All these bricks I've been moving to make the fire pit reminds me of that old spice commercial where the guy was making a stone wall in old England/Ireland.  Except I look nothing like him.  And I'm not making a wall.  And I don't use old spice.  But I do need deodorant.  Damn summer weather...I hate being a Sir Sweats-A-Lot

*  *  *

Fish tacos...I like!  I would've never guessed

It's The Pits

The fire pit, that is.

So my foray into making a pit for a spit for meat is in the making.  Can't wait for that charcoaley goodness.  Wait, then again, I hope it actually turns out semi-decent

I Forgots How Fun It Was... bike with my recumbent.

So I fixed it up (from a rather dilapidated state) because I was going to take pictures to sell it.  And then after I rode it, well...yeah, I'm still going to sell it.  I need to so that I could finance the two bikes I'm going to buy (sacrificing for my wife.  That's right, I'm a hero).

And bikes are what I might need with my car breaking down.  Well that's an exaggeration; I just needed to replace the battery this morning after it didn't start up.  I just hate the feeling you get when you realize your car isn't going to work, especially when you're so dependent on it.  One of my worst fears is being stranded somewhere on a highway.  Oh, that and paying an exorbitant amount for repairs

I Swear The Terrorists Are Winning

So our great and fun weekend in NY ended off on a crappier note.

I have never, ever spent three and half frikin' hours in a car waiting to cross the border.  Ridonkulous!  I would like to blame the terrorists, but really, what did I expect at the end of a long weekend?  Well, maybe 1 to 2 hours wait.  But 3.5?!?  So that's why it was so cheap flying to Buffalo.

So anywho, NY was fun.  We ended up watching two broadway shows (including "In The Heights", perhaps the best show I have ever watched), ate a lot and generally had an expensive ol' time (they ain't lying when they say New York is not cheap).  I even got to go to the NBA store and bought a side table.  No, really.  I went to NY and I bought a side table (you'll have to come over one time to see what I mean).

And so in a few hours, as I always say after a vakay...back to reality

Chicago In New York

So we went to watch a broadway show last night. We're in New York, so of course we watched...Chicago? It was good, if I wasn't falling asleep. This is not due to the show itself, but rather the fact we have been doing so much and eating so much.
Only one more day left. More touristing to do...

Takin' A Bite...

Good times so far! I have 2:13 to type out what I've observed so far:
-crazy busy here!
-New Yorkers sneeze like they are about to have pop some brain cells
-street food is amazing...wish they had this back home
-did the Tourist thing on the double decker bus
-did the wannabe NY thing and just ran through Central Park
Now onto more madness

Shouldn't I Be Sleeping?

We'll be leaving soon...and the Great Sharson NY Adventure will begin!

(Hmmm...maybe I should pack)

Leavin' On A Jet Plane... two days.  Two days!

So much to plan.  I hope this stress right now will make the vacation worth it!

All You Can Eat Weight Gain

So we went out this past evening with my parents and Gil and Marie for Mother's Day (parents were in Michigan yesterday) at Prince Sushi.  It was one of those all-you-can-eat type of places.

The food was good enough, but it happened again today that made me vow never to go to these types of places because it always happens:  we ordered too much.  So of course feeling obliged to eat everything so we don't overpay (big mistake...seriously, what's another $4-$5 more when we are already paying way over $100?), I ate way too much.  I at least fared better than Sharon, whom last I checked was on the verge of purging.

My older brother made the revelation that he gained about 50 lbs. since he met Marie.  Dang.  My Mom said he likes my brother fatter now and told me to stop losing weight (I lost about 20 lbs. since I started going out with Sharon).  It's not like I'm Manorexic or anything; I am just exercising a lot and my diet is a lot healthier now thanks to my wife.

So anywho, yeah...I'm seriously going to try to avoid these types of restaurants from now on.  I hope my motivation stays with me for the rest of my life

Went to watch X-Men Origins:  Wolverine today.

Pretty good!

Now What's My Life Goal?

Crazy!  So my official time:  49:37!  My four minute-mile has been achieved!

I honestly thought I wasn't going to beat my 50 minute goal, as I crossed the line at 51:25, but apparently I started a little less than two minutes after the official start time.

All it took me was five attempts to get there.  I can't help but think:  what if I had trained?  (as always, it's one of those "woulda coulda but didn't")

So what do I get as a reward for this?  Two crazy blisters and some sore feet and knees.  Dangit!  I knew I should've worn my old orthotics as opposed to the new ones.

Do I retire now?  Maybe, but I may come out of it just as soon as I went into it (I don't want to forgo my annual Turtle Jack's Buffalo Shrimp meal).  Maybe my next goal will be sub-49?  I dunno...

(my once noble foe, Arvin, has seemed to have fallen from his physical grace.  I really think it coincided with him falling in love.  Mind you his best-ever time is still way better than mine.  Maybe that's my new goal!  I hope he doesn't retire now)

Oh Right, It's Today

My annual 10km race.  When did I start training for it this year?  Today.

I did, however, watch my diet this week.  I'm testing to see if it'll have an affect on my time (as opposed to, you know, running).

I am looking forward to the other annual event we do this year:  Turtle Jack's after the race.  Buffalo Shrimp, here I come!

*  *  *

This time next week we'll be in NYC.  I feel like I have so much to plan...

"It's About Time"

So I finally, finally finished the bathroom by putting up the shelves in the shower for the soap/shampoo.  And then I finally took a shower in there.

And how did I feel afterwards?

Now Who's The Bread Winner?

Much has been said (mainly by me) of how Sharon is my bread winner.  Well...not anymore!

With the help of my new breadmaker, I am now the one making gluteness wonderment.

Mind you, my inaugural loaf is nowhere near good, but still.  I'm carbing up!

I'm Tired Because Of Curtain

So we finally put up some curtains in our house, including our bedroom.  It makes a big difference, especially filtering out light.

I was used to waking up with the "brightness", but now it's so dark I find I'm having a hard time waking up.  And we won't leave the curtains open because then that would make Sharon not able to sleep.  Why do we have to be so different?  Yargh!

*  *  *

We'll be going to NYC next week.  One thing I hate about vacations is all the planning involved.  I feel like I don't know where we'll be going while we're there.  Time to get a movin'...

Hawt Pawt

Has a great hot pot dinner at Carlo and Kalina's place today...but ugh, I overate.  We then watched Beverly Hills Chihuahua.  I don't know why.  But really, it was amusing

Friday, May 01, 2009


I think I'm getting Friday's, I'm just completely tired and wiped out.  Teenaged years of staying up til 3:30am seemed so long ago.

Where's my walker?
