Nothing is exactly as it seems, nor is it otherwise. --- From the box that holds the zen baby erector swing set
You know I have a body guard. I dont need you to crush my foes in your arm pit. -- Nancy Botwin to Andy Botwin as Andy is working out

Football season you lovely goddess. I know you will be here soon. I have missed you, but not forgotten the curves of your saturday afternoons or the Long legs of your Sundays and your teasing ways of Monday Night.

Had an Epiphany today about expectations. Generally I wear button down dress shirts and Slacks to work, or when I go out at night. Sometimes I mix in an occasional short sleeved pullover shirt with a collar on it, like in the style of an Izod, but usually its a long sleeved button down dress shirt.
Today was a long sleeved button down dress shirt day, except this particular shirt did not have a front pocket, so I had to put my pen on the button up part, and I was bummed that this shirt did not come with pockets. This was when the epiphany occurred. I could care less about not having a shirt pocket when I am wearing a polo or Nike pullover shirt but because this was the dress shirt, I felt cheated by the absence of the pocket and in this realization I found the pocket is not needed after all. Let go of your need for pockets on shirts and admire the simplicity of a dress shirt without pockets.

Went to the beach and the Amusement park this weekend. At the Beach, my son, daughter and I were playing in the waves and after a while I realized we had got washed down the thing. I told my kids we had to go and get back set up in front of our stuff again, and then after awhile, my son asked me: Dad Where IS OUR LUGGAGE?

Scary shit. The Magic had the best team shooting percentage in the finals in HISTORY. Meaning, since they have been playing finals in the NBA, no team has had a better percentage of shooting ....FOREVER, and they only won in the last minute by 4 points on the board. Lets be realistic, those last two free throws is the difference in the Magic beating them by only 2. What does that tell you? Magic Defense SUCKED tonight...but hey its still a win and it is also the first win for the Magic in the NBA finals EVER. Only Cleveland is left as a team that has Never won a game in the finals...

Okay -- once again, the two best pro basketball teams in the NBA have played 47 minutes in a 48 minute game and its 104 to 101 Magic. why dont they just start the game at the45 minute mark and deal with it from there? Okay , I know the answer is because sometimes shit like Game One can happen where it is not close in the final minutes, but you also know why they play the whole 48 minutes. Because we watch that shit when its the NBA finals and that is good for capitalism.
The stress is the good kind of anticipatory, hoping, type of stress that is actually good for you. Not the bad type of stress when you have more bills then money and the cupboard is bare.
Laker ball with one minute and six seconds left, Laker ball. ( lets reflect now) The Magic have never won a finals game in the history of the team and Howard just fouled Kobe, but it wasnt really a foul except it was called. Kobe Misses the first one and its still a three point game. The place is LOUD. Kobe makes the second one though and now its a two point game.
Now with 28 seconds in basketball time Pietrus steals the ball from Kobe. (Pietrus you are a super stud)
LA fouls and the Magic make the free throws and its 106 to 102 with 28.7 seconds left. LA ball, Bryant takes a shot from 3 point land but misses. LA gets the rebound, and now. they have it but only 16 seconds left. They take a shit load of shots because they keep getting rebounds but in the end the Magic win. WOOHOOOOOO

Just rewatching the last few episodes from Season 4 of weeds, getting ready for the Season 5 premier next Monday June 8th.
Here is my dilemma, I watched the first 4 seasons basically one weekend at a time as I did not catch on to the greatness of this show until after a few seasons were already in the can. I rented season 1,2 and 3 and watched them in bulk, That was about a year ago, and then I just watched season 4 in bulk about 3 weeks ago. I am all caught up and ready for Monday Night, however, in a way, I wish I had the will power to not watch season 5 until it was completely over so I can get the full series in on one marvelous weekend instead of constantly waiting for each Monday.
I think I am in love with Mary Louise Parker as well and she doesn't even know who I am.
