Wierd stuff

Which way do I go?!?


I was at Baskin-Robbins and while browsing the freezer I saw this...

Flying out tomorrow


See you when I get back!

Cats






I worked the 6 showings in 3 cities for Cats by the last city it all paid off. The Technical Director asked me for my resume!! As far as the show I really don't have anything to say about it, but the people were nice.

Blueman

I was able to work the travelocity staff gathering the other night and their talent was the blueman group! I saw these guys many many many years ago in Vegas and they were still enjoyable.

Go Ahead!!

The AP and the USA Today Polls have done a great thing today. They dropped #5 Michigan and #19 Florida St. out of the Top 25 after losing their opening games. Somehow Tennessee managed to stay in the Top 25 after looking awful against #12 California. On top of all of this the voters have to be patting each other on the back for not having Notre Dame in their polls.
This weekend should be a tell-tale game for LSU as they face Virginia Tech. If they play the first half the same as they did last Thursday we will be done. Of course this will be the first of many tell-tale games this season.

Media Machine



ESPN says USC is trying for their third BCS title since 2003, yet when I look at the list it only shows them winning in 2004.
In 2003 USC was given the AP Champ even though the team they beat was Michigan, who had two losses that season to Oregon (8-5) and Iowa (10-3).
In 2004 USC dominated Oklahoma, however they should've played Auburn
In 2005 USC got beat by Texas, scratch that, they got beat by Vince Young.
In 2006 After losing to Oregon State & UCLA they were still able to win the PAC-10 and beat Michigan in the Rose Bowl.

All of that said the top picture can't be true.

Another day...


This is the start list for Friday when they have the 400M final. Hopefully we can get Gold, Silver & Bronze! Checkout those personal bests, no one is even close to the three Americans. In other news LoLo finished 6th in her race :'(, but the good news is Michelle Perry (USA) finished first.
It breaks down like this:
USA dominates in Track <400M
Kenya dominates in Track >400M
Russia dominates the Field events

Oh Ty there was two guys from Zimbabwe, but they are headed home. Neither made the finals (200 & 400).

Lookout for Lo Lo

If you haven't been watching the World Championships on Versus, you have been missing some great stuff. The Men and the Women have both finished the 100M which is the MOST exciting. We (USA) lead the Total medal count, the Gold medal count, the Silver medal count and the Bronze medal count.
Some guy from Zimbabwe did good in the 200M today so we will see what he can do tomorrow in the finals of the 200M.
Jamaica wants to act like they're fast but they are not getting many medals.

Anyways it is on Versus, check it out.

DVR's

I am probably one of, if not, the biggest fan of Tivo, but DVR's have taken away great moments like the time I was watching SportsCenter and the news had just broke that due to NCAA violations the Michigan Wolverines were going to lose all of their records and awards from the Fab Five Era. Well Trey Wingo said, "so that whole time out thing, never happened" and went right on with the news.
While I was rolling on the floor laughing I had to call Matt to see if he was watching. He answered his phone and I said, "are you watching SportsCenter" he then continued to roll on the ground laughing just like I was doing.
Now no one, including myself, watches live TV. :-(

Apartment vs. House

Just was thinking about something the other day, neighbors.
I live in Oakleigh Apartments. Along with Mark, Heather, Lacey, Caleb, Goose, Matt, Steph, Meghan, Chris, JJ, Travis, CJ, Lisa. In my section there are 7 neighbors and aside from Goose and Caleb who live right below me, I don't know any of them at all. Compare that to when I lived in my parents house we knew our neighbors, we may not talk with them daily but we know them they know us, but in an apartment complex you don't get that. I guess it is because in apartment life you assume someone is here one day and could be gone the next but I've always found that weird about apartments. This could just be me in which case, oh well I'm weird anyway, but I don't think it is just me.

You lived in an apartment at some point, or you do now, how was your experience?

I've been REAL BUSY

Great news, I got my computer fixed!
I drove up to Raliegh, NC to stand in my boy BDPs' wedding.
And I've been working in Lafayette a whole lot lately.

So if you still check this site I will be making a big come back.
And if you don't, well you won't know.

Bestfriend???

How many people do you have in your life that knows everything about you?

Friends..., family? My family knows me well, my friends know me well, but they only know the me that I let them know. It has been quite a few years since I was in my last serious relationship, and while thinking about that I realized that in that moment she knew me best. And while things in my life have changed in the years since she knew me she might still know me better than anyone knows me. Cause when your in a relationship you let down your guard and let them in.

While your family knows why you are who you are, thru storys and sharing memories she too gets the big picture.

While your friends hear your dreams and goals, she steps alongside you and tries to help you accomplish these goals.

So to those of you who have that person, congrats.
To those still searching, they are out there waiting for you!

I don't even know why I am shocked



A couple weeks back Jay and I were headed to Houston, but we had to stop for gas along the way and we came across this dilapidated building. My thoughts were
A) what is he hoping to get in trade?
B) What would you be willing to trade for a lovely establishment like this?
PS Brad if this is another one of our uncles places I'm sorry.

Shaded Red

thanks for the heads up friedrichs

So I woke my Mac up the other day from a mid afternoon nap and much to my suprise everything that should have been black was red. I can only assume that when you view the above pic on your computer of choice that it looks as bad as it does for me. :`(

Lazy Monday


So it has been awhile and who knows when I'll actually post again but...
This here is a pic of my Sony TV. After sitting around watching it all day today,
I thought I would let my friends and family see it.
All that's missing is my XBox 360 (maybe one day)

Watch out for falling gas prices.

So I just put up a post where the gas price was $2.41. Well tonight when I was coming back from my parents house the gas prices were as low as $2.34. So when I got on my side of town I started looking at gas prices and they were still up there in the $2.40's. There were three gas stations within seconds of one another and they differed $2.38-$2.42. How can these prices be so different.

I mean it isn't "a lot' but it adds up to $1.34 difference in one fill-up on my truck.

But as long as the prices keep falling I'll be happy.

Important Dates to Remember

This has always been rough for me. If I don't write it down in my calendar I'm not going to remember it. Even if I put it in my calendar and don't put a reminder/alarm on it...

How do you polish this skill?

Of course the thing that spear-headed this post is birthdays and the problem I run into there is just knowing the date of my friends & families birthday.
But even still I know my parents birth date and I have trouble recognizing that it is their birthdays without a reminder of some sorts.
