Using My Smarts — For Once

leave a comment »

And to think during my formative years I used to annually buy the latest Madden/NHL/NBA/MLB/NCAA video games. I swear the depreciation on these games is worse than that of buying a new car.

If I only took that money I wasted during those years and invested it … well, it probably would have vanished in one of the stock market dips since 1994. At least with Lakers v. Celtics you could beat Michael Jordan in the playoffs. Take that, Blue Chips.

I still play sports games, but now I just buy a used copy of Madden/MLB/etc. and keep it for the life of whatever console I have. Besides, being a “franchise” freak, it’s not like I’ll go through 10 seasons of whatever sport I’m playing at the time in a weekend.

Test For Echo

leave a comment »

Why is it I (and the rest of the first floor at my workplace) can hear my Hate Radio and Kill Whitey music just fine down the hallway thanks to the echo this hallway produces, but I can barely hear the same music/talk when I’m actually inside my office? Stupid sound dynamics.

No Way To Get Around Me Blasting My Horn

leave a comment »

Sorry city crossing guard, but if you are going to direct someone to back up into me then I am going to blare my car horn nonstop. It’s not my fault the dumbass is blocking the intersection. You gonna pay ma’ bills?

Thing is this particular crossing guard I deal with during my morning commute is stationed on a busy intersection and isn’t a complete waste of space, unlike the other dozen or so crossing guards I encounter on a daily basis. But the minute you start infringing on my space/property, you will get the Car Horn of Doom.

Back In The Black, But Not By Much

leave a comment »

The monthly budget looked much better before the four car tires, new garage door opener and visit from the bug man. :-/

We still in the black, but now we’re Michael Jackson minus the sleepovers. I wanted to be Wesley Snipes. 😦

Cats Think Vacuums Suck

leave a comment »

Today was cleaning day at the kkk Manor. This of course meant busting out the vacuum cleaner, much to the chagrin of the four-legged brood.

After cleaning the first floor, I proceeded upstairs to vacuum the spare bedroom and computer room. As I began in the spare bedroom, various members of the four-legged brood that were hiding in there suddenly ran for their lives as the vacuuming sequence began. Where did they go for refuge? Why to the computer room — the next place I was going to vacuum.

And they wonder why they are being “hunted.”

Like To Trade In This “Personal” Message

leave a comment »

What was waiting for me in the mail today?

A letter from the local car dealership that ruined my previous automobile. This was another “personal” message to me from the asshats at the Kenny Ross Dealership (Rt. 30 in Irwin), stating that they were in “dire need” of “quality pre-owned vehicles.” They even said, “We might be able to reduce your monthly payment (if you trade-in your car).”

Considering my car is paid-in-full, if your monthly payment is currently $0, do they just give you money?

Not Slamming The Achievement, Just The Reaction

leave a comment »

To all you Yankee fans having simultaneous orgasms over the whole three-grand-slams-in-one-game thing…

No team in major league history had hit three grand slams in a game before Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson strode to the plate in the bottom of the eighth inning Thursday, the crowd at Yankee Stadium having been thinned, but the bases loaded one more time.

…remember that in the 1960 World Series the Yankees won three games by a combined score of 38-3 and lost four games by a combined score of 17-24. No matter the score, a win counts as 1 win and a loss counts as 1 loss.

Not hating on the pinstripes, mind you. Just want to keep thing in perspective.
