La da. La da da. Daaaaa.

I thinketh it's gonna be the start of another long week. Ah well, such is life.

Stay strong because you are strong. And exceptional

Sunday, May 30, 2010


So I went for a little in-line skating action today (with Bubs on a bike) for the first time in what seems to be a long time. All the painful memories came back to me (feet hurting, ankles hurting, back hurting). But lest I be nothing but a complainer, it was fun (I mean, the constant fear of falling down made it all the more exhilarating)

* * *

Went for lunch today with Lester and Michelle. Listening to them as they talked about getting married and what they expected...yeah...*goodlucknotgoingcrazy*

My Daughter? Sure, Why Not?

Had a fun time at the Water Festival with wifey, Kevuth and the Kids. Someone even asked me if Trinity was my daughter. Riiiiiiight...because someone as cute as her would look like something that came out of Sharon and

Something's Fishy Here

Went to the Dr. Ivy Koh recommended Optometrist Dr. Christine Yeung today for the first time. Seems as though I'm getting blinderer. I can't wait till they come up with a new procedure that can fix eyes. Like using lasers or something


That's it? Man, I really have to start running longer distances. Especially since I ruin the whole exercise thing by eating Pizza Hut for breakfast

The Start Of Heat Complaining

Couldn't sleep last night because it was way too damn hot. I'm all of a sudden channeling my Dad and not turning on the a/c. I must be retarded.

That's it, it's going on tonight

"Welcome Back!" -RDubbs

So I went to RW & Co. on a whim.

And bought two sweaters. But baby!

I better not gain too much weight now

Going Going Glone?

So I think my fascination with Glee is starting to wain. I think it's starting to get a bit too formulaic for my liking, and the music numbers are also getting somewhat predictable. Aren't I just a critic now? (now?!?)

Or it could be another reason.

But whatever the case, just to stay true to my gayness, here is some Leane Rimes!

Craigslisting It

Good way to get rid of stuff around the house that is no longer needed.

Thumbs up!

Get To It

I wish motivation was like a switch I could just turn on

Lovely Day

Wish the weather was like this all the time. We spent the day outside. It's nice to eat outside too (as long as the bugs aren't around).

I want to get a small, inflatable pool that I could lounge in. Yep, I'm dreaming big time!

I don't wanna go to work tomorrow...

Snap Out Of It Man!


Make those thoughts go away. Please

* * *

Went for a 6 km or so jog today, with Bubs following me on a bike. I felt like Rocky!

Felt good until I realized it prolly didn't work off all the ice cream I ate before hand. So really, I'm still at a negative here. Yikes

How The Mind Wanders

I'm not sure why my mind goes off in 47 different places at once. I'm finding that focussing is getting more and more difficult.

I often worry that the only time my mind will be at ease will be when...I die. No wonder I don't sleep a lot...I prefer to have my dreams while I'm awake and during the day it seems.

Random thoughts much?


So I don't drink alcohol. Not a surprise considering I don't particularly like the taste of bitter. Everyone always tells me it's an acquired taste (but why the hell would I want to acquire the taste of crap?).

Well anywho, I came upon this item at the grocery store and decided to try it out:
The "Tiger" stands for "yuck"

I mean, I thought to myself, "I like malt. Why won't I like this?"

I took a sip and started thinking, "hey, now I can drink this faux beer while all my other friends drink the real stuff!"

I took another sip and quickly decided that it was...crap.

Never the mind that idea

Cabinet Frustration

So almost as predicted (by my wife), the cabinets seem to be delayed by a week.

Frustration Incorporation!

Can't wait for it to be done

I'm A (Dream) Gangsta

So this morning, I recalled a dream I had two nights ago that made sense of why I did what I did.

I was dreaming that I had a pistol in my hand and that I was all gangsta and what not (the fact that I say "gangsta" obviously indicates I am anything but). I remember getting into an argument with someone in my dream, and then going up to them and pistol whipping them on the head and yelling, "what now? WHAT NOW?!?"

And that's the reason I was hitting Sharon on top of her head in the middle of the night and why she woke me up and why she was saying, "hey! HEY!"

It's funny sometimes when dreams get incorporated into real life. Even funnier when you get someone else involved.

You know who doesn't find that so funny? Sharon.

What Would You Wash Down A Deep Fried Mars Bar With?

Me? Deep-fried Oreos.

I think I'm going to die.

But it was a great lunch at Roxy's in Oakville. Always fun to see Kats and her adorable bubbas. Her new one, Brady, is a monster already. 2 months old and he looks like he's 8 months old. Ridicurous!

(Wow, what happened to losing weight and eating healthily? I think I need to take a nap or something)

Lunch With My Kiri

We had a great lunch today. I still miss seeing her everyday though

* * *

So is this the life of a Supervisor? I'm scheduled to have a day off tomorrow but I am still coming in for a half-day of training. I'll just chalk this up to "the sacrifices we have to make for the job"

How Long Will This Go On?

So seeing as how I view myself as becoming (more of) a fat bastard, I've decided to take up running again. This, especially in light of the fact that I ate at the Mandarin for lunch today.

So I went for a 5k run.

I hope I can keep this up (it's easy though...all I have to do is look in the mirror)

Yet I can't stop listening to the song: (h8usm4vr)

The Dance (Version) Of Joy

Feeling this song for some reason:
Makes me think of Balki from Perfect Strangers dancing at a club

Can't Take It Anymore

Did you ever think that you could handle something, but when it came down to it, you realized that you're not man enough to?
I tried my best, but it is proving to be way too difficult. Quite frankly, I don't think I'm as strong as the millions of other people (it seems) that can take it.
From now on, I'm only going to get seedless grapes

Did You Get Back Surgery?

Because you certainly look like it when you're walking.

Crap. I guess I'm not as fit as I thought I was.

So what do I do? Go the gym in the morning and play basketball in the evening!

Let's see what tomorrow brings

Feeling Okay But Gross

So physically, I'm not doing too bad today. But I still feel gross because I did my post-race ritual of stuffing my face with junk food last night (wings and dessert? Yeah...feeling all sorts of disgusting this morning).

Yesterday was fun. I let Arvin win because if I didn't, he wouldn't have come back next year (because who wants to keep competing if you keep know you're reading this). Feli and Milton Lester ran for the first time and they did really well, considering this was the first time either of them actually completed 10km. Some people at work were thinking that Milton Lester wouldn't even finish or show up; he did alright. Now will he show up at work on Monday? That's another story.

And my sister-in-law also ran and did awesome (again, considering she never actually completed 10km before). That meant baby-boy was at the finish line, which is always great.

So next year should be fun. Hope the same, if not more people join (looking at you BGay, if you come back to Ontario on-time)

28 Seconds

Because of 28 seconds, Arvin has bragging rights for a year. Congrats to him...rats to me. I know he trained his hardest though. So screw that guy (not that I'm a sore loser or anything).

51:08. Almost two minutes worse than last year.

BUT, I would like to add:
-no training (my own fault)
-I gained a few pounds (my own fault)
-I kind of ate junk food today (my own fault)
-I should've did better (that's not my fault...I don't know how, but I know it's not my fault)

I am going to train next year (right)

Wired Wierd

I don't know why I'm weird.

I wonder what it's like to be "normal" sometimes. Maybe then I wouldn't think so much?

* * *

Race tomorrow so I went to pick up the race kit today. Every year the runner's expo gets crappier and crappier. Argay and I were remembering the first year we went, and how we got a tech shirt, water bottle and tons of swag. This year? A cheap, neon-green cotton shirt, a one-time use heating pad for menstrual pains (no joke), and a reuseable grocery bag. Wow.

Good thing I didn't train this year. That'll show them!

What I'll Be Dreaming About

This song, because it's been in my head all day:
(Damn you Vinyl 95.3)

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Hey, Don't You Have A Race This Saturday?

Well then, I guess I really am going through with the "no training" thing.

I wonder how it's going to turn out...

Tree-mendous Quasi-Helilogger

So Miknifer was giving away their trees in their backyard, and Sharon liked them. And of course it was cold and raining.

Anywho, borrowed Dad's van, dug soil to extract trees, transported trees, transported Miknifer's new tree, played with Rozzymaboo, planted new trees at our house, wet, cold, damp, no I sort of felt like a Helilogger? Well it seems to be a desire of mine to be one (with no basis in realism whatsoever. But whateves). Close enough?

Always Be "Close"-ing

So I was talking with Sharon about her job as a salesperson and how she has to be a "closer" to get the sale. She then said to me, "yeah, everyone tells me I have to watch that movie where they say 'Always Be Closing'. I think the movie is called Glengarry Glen Close".

I couldn't help by laugh and tell her, "Glengarry Glen Ross."


"Glengarry Glen Ross. Glengarry Glen Close? Glen Close is an actress."

That's my Bubs!

Mental Monday

Okay. Start of a new week.

Get in the game, boy

I Ron Man

Just watched Iron Man 2 with was actually not bad.

Makes me want to fly in an iron suit.

Made me also want to go to Monaco

It's Either The Start Of My Pain, Suffering And Death, Or...

...allergies. Not that I'm dramatic or anything.

Fargin-hargin, it definitely does suck though. I feel like I'm sick but I don't feel like I'm sick, if that makes sense.

Used to have allergies when I was a kid, then it went away. But like a bad cold sore, looks like it has come back. Crap

That's Quite A Factory

So we made the jaunt to Buffalo this morning, and found ourselves at the Cheesecake Factory at the Walden Galleria. I had some of the best New England Clam Chowder. Yummmm....and the portions were crazy! (yet another instance of me saying, "no wonder them Americans are obese").

Shopping wasn't the greatest. Got a pair of pants, but that's about it.

Tonight we're gonna meet with Miknifer and Kirly at Bimiyan Kebab. I think I may need alka seltzer after today

Thursday, May 06, 2010


Man, 3 Thai meals in less than one week. I don't think I'm gonna have that for a while.

But we had to go cause it was my parents 34th wedding anniversary. And baby boy is getting so big and cuter now.

Day off tomorrow and we're headed to Buffalo. Or what I like to call, "the place I wouldn't go to if it weren't for the Cheesecake Factory"

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

That's Just Sick, Man

Crap, why do I feel a sick coming on?

Sore throat? Check.

Headache? Check.

Headcold coming on? Check.

If I just ignore it, it'll go away. I'm gonna go with that theorem and hopefully by tomorrow it'll be okay

That Massage Was Delicious

I always appreciate massage therapy on my body (especially pre-HST as the prices are going to go up. Damn Government. Oh, I don't care, I'll pay it, but I'm thinking more for Rolando's sake).

Although, maybe I should've saved it for after my 10km race?

Monday, May 03, 2010

Get Fat? Get Blisters

That's my new theorem.

Dammit, I gained weight these past few weeks (absolutely no surprise here, considering I've been eating like a champ/chump). Now I'm trying to be "exercise-superstar" by hitting it hard at the gym and then doing the "two-a-days" by playing ball in the evening.

As a result? Big blister on my foot. Crap.

Oh, note to self: if trying to lose weight? Yeah, lay off the junk food. Idiot

Worth The Drive To Shelburne

So we went to visit Ruthie and the girls today. I always forget how far they live. But's always nice to see the girls (especially Sheky, the "Ralph Wiggum" of the girls. Love her to pieces).

And Kevin made these absolutely awesome ribs. I'm still thinking about them. Good times

Good Will Hunting (For An Excuse To Be A Couch Potato)

Well, add another movie to the list where I stop doing everything to watch the film it its entirety. Damn movie making me think about life
