Looking all over for my Busch Garden Fun passes and really stressing about not being able to find them. Do you think Busch gardens has us in a database? I cannot be the first person to purchase 3 yearly fun passes, and then stupidly misplace them? If we show our identification cards wont they be able to pull us up in there computers and verify we paid for them and re-issue? or is there some fine print that says if you dont have them then you are a shitty ass Father? I would read the fine print right now if only I could find the things...

If the company is essentially bankrupt because of the actions of a select few (which in itself is hard to believe), it only makes sense that everyone in the company suffers-- the company rises and falls together. A 700,000+ bonus? What world does he live in? (Not my world, that's for sure). He admits that he has overpaid for years and that he won't feel the devastating impacts of this financial recession. Yet, still, he wants our sympathy? Like an indulgent child.... get over yourself.

A couple of hard days at work for the Billster. Now I need to buy some more Golf Balls.
Sunday, March 22, 2009
Just to clarify. I have to go to work tomorrow, On Monday, and after some stuff that has to go on in the morning I then have to go and play GOLF. Then eat a fancy dinner and stuff. So tomorrow is going to be all about working. Its GOLF but its important GOLF. The type of GOLF you play when you could be working. Its the kind of GOLF that when you talk about it in your blog you spell it with all capital letters.
Then on Tuesday, its like washing your hair. You have to do it all over again. You know wash, rinse, repeat only it will be Talk about some stuff in the morning, Golf in the afternoon and then Go to a fancy dinner in the afternoon. My hair will certainly be sparkly and full of body, metaphoraly speaking I will Become a duke, or a prince or whatever metaphor you want to use and then play GOLF. The kind of GOLF in which you are still earning a paycheck for working but at the same time you are Hitting GOLF Balls. Like its your fucking JOB, cause you know what IT IS MY JOB. .
If you drink beer, or margaritas, or say there is some kind of shot called an Irish Monkey and you drank. like, three of those.... are you really drinking the yeast and hops or the milk and banana juice, or the tiple sec? what the hell is triple sec? (an Irish monkey evidently does not have any bananas in it but it is clearly a banananeeeee type of taste. )
Not water. there will still be lots of water drinking going on around here on account of that being the best thing you can do for yourself when you previously drank a bunch of beverages that include alcohol as part of the ingredients.
Tomorrow is a relatively big day. Some shit is going to go down tomorrow, and after its all over It will be like when a prince marries a princess. Tomorrow some shit is going to get all official like.
Tomorrow will entail me earning a paycheck. which is like many Mondays, except tomorrow will involve Golfing, and princehood. It will also involve some stress
even though the outcome is guranteed the ritual of it all will be enough. Enough that I will have to quit drinking early tonight.

The ad says YOU COULD WIN THIS CAR FOR $99
This is the 2008 Ferrari F430 Spider, and I am no economist or anything, but Pretty sure its worth more then 99 bucks.
The ad says that they are going to sell 7000 tickets at 99 dollars a pop and if your ticket is drawn you do have to pay the taxes. ----- So I logged in to the website: www.MajesticRegistry.org and found out that the raffle has either been cancelled or postponed.
1) I was Going to do it--- Then I thought to myself where would I get the money to pay the taxes, then I remembered I wont really have to worry about that because I wont win, and besides, if it was something I couldn't handle (the taxes) I could still sell the car to pay the taxes and pocket the difference, but I wont win anyways so I might as well do it... How is that for logic
2) I did not really believe that I was going to be the lucky person out of 7000 people -- I get that: a 1/7000 chance is very slim, but I rationalized to myself that it's for a good cause (the raffle money goes to help children with Cancer and blood diseases)
I think this is a double negative. I believe if they just had the word "Pets" and then the circle thingy over that with a line through it, then that would mean "No Pets" In this case however the sign says "No Pets allowed" and then they have the circle thingy with the line through it which I do believe makes it a double negative. This is actually an invitation to bring pets.
I dont think a mascot is a pet, but it is a Gator and I am sure some crazy drug lord has a pet Gator, and Auburn treated us like a Dog in slashing the big dance dreams of the Gator Nation.

"There are certain people you love who do something else; they define how you classify what love is supposed to feel like. These are the most important people in your life, and you’ll meet maybe four or five of these people over the span of 80 years. But there’s still one more tier to all this; there is always one person you love who becomes that definition. It usually happens retrospectively, but it happens eventually. This is the person who unknowingly sets the template for what you will always love about other people, even if some of these loveable qualities are self-destructive and unreasonable. The person who defines your understanding of love is not inherently different than anyone else, and they’re often just the person you happen to meet the first time you really, really, want to love someone. But that person still wins. They win, and you lose. Because for the rest of your life, they will control how you feel about everyone"

If you have defined yourself and are unhappy about that definition then maybe before you give up on yourself you should look at how you are. Maybe you are a perennially competitive team that constantly goes 9 and 7. Sure you can be disappointed that you only occasionally make the sixth seed, and maybe you are disappointed that you are constantly outed in that first round only to watch the rest from the sideline. Remember there are lots of 3 and 13 teams. Remember that although you may not ever make it deep in the playoffs you sometimes at least make the playoffs. Maybe you should be happy that you don't completely suck. Maybe you should evaluate it and just say look, I am consistently in the top third of the league and although I don't ever truly dominate, at some point I cause upsets among the elite and I don't completely suck. Maybe you should just say HEY, I am above average but not exceptional. Maybe I should quit striving to be EXCEPTIONAL
Except maybe striving to be EXCEPTIONAL and failing is what makes you a slightly above average type of guy? If you just accepted Average maybe you would soon become below Average? How is it that we define ourselves?

Tomorrow night looks like some more SEC basketball tournament action for the billster. Plus the local Economy will do well as Kentucky also won today. -- Seriously, Tampa People just hope and pray Kentucky and Florida win throughout, -- because that is the majority of the fans. It is kind of disapointing that it wasnt sold out tonight though. Probably something to do with everybody being Broke and stuff.

Went to the first round of the SEC BASKETBALL tournament tonight.
Just some observations.
1) Arkansas had a tough year-- they were 2 and 14 -- Their fans certainly ran their mouths more like they were 14 and 2
2) Kentucky is like a HUGE ball rolling down a hill, It doesn't matter that they were mediocre this past season- their fans still came out like it was the mid 1990's --- More Kentucky fans than any other including maybe even the Gators and it is only 2 hours from Gainesville.
3) Ole Miss has beautiful cheerleaders --- I think it may be a rule that if you live in Oxford Mississippi and you are a woman it is required that you are also hot.
4) Their is a Bar across the street from the Forum that is only open when stuff is going on at the Forum?
5) I saw David Warner with his shirt off running stadium steps about 3 years ago He could be an Underwear model. He probably may also be able to play in Europe based on how he played tonight.
6) Billy Donovan is My age but he is a little bit more successful then me in pretty much every area of life, Financial, Physically, career wise and he is still married
7) Tampa is a GREAT place to host this type of shit.
8) I think the Gators victory tonight will be enough, even if they lose to Auburn tomorrow night to get in the NCAA tournament.
9) Why can't I ever buy a stadium hot dog and not end up with some of the condiments on my shirt?
10) LIVING !!!

Tonight, I went to one of my favorite bars and sat down at the stool. The discussion turned to the bartendresses' upcoming nuptials.

Cannot help but wonder about this past Friday night. I went to a Goth Bar and hung out with some friends of mine. None of whom were, or are, Goth in nature, but they get a kick out of the whole scene and wanted me to come along. I talked to this one chick who I am pretty sure is a dude. I knew it while I was talking to him but could not be 100 percent sure. This guy was not one of the people I went with to the bar but he was there and I was trying to be friendly. If she was a girl she certainly was not my type of woman mostly because although kind of pretty, certainly also not a woman unless of course she was.
ME: "hey whats up, are you a dude dressed as a woman"
HER/HIM: in a manly type of voice: " fuck off"
Me: "Dude whatever, if you are a woman I am only stunned by the size of your hands and your deep voice. Can I buy you a drink and apologize if I offended you?"
HIM/She: "fuck off"
so on the 2 percent chance this was a chick then I was totally rude to her but just going with my Gut feelings on the scenerio, probably this was a dude and he was only mad at me for not sucking up and believing in the fantasy he was trying to portray.
