Just a couple of random thoughts

Here are some things I have heard about on television and the internet today:
-
The God Particle ? Have you heard about this? Some dudes have a super collider and they are slamming atoms against each other and they are about to figure out how Mass got created. So Its kind of a misnomer as the scientist are basically about to prove that there is not a god.  They are going to prove how the universe created mass,  scientifically,  and just to mock religion they are calling it the God Particle.  
-
Also  I have definitely tweeted, texted and updated facebook while driving my car but you should probably not try that at home.  That is for excellent drivers like me,  and maybe Rain Man.  (I'm an Excellent driver)
-
Plus,  what is up with that Best Buy Commercial?  The one where these ladys shop at Best Buy and seem to think that makes them able to Kick Santa's ass?  Who would want to do that?  Even if You bought better presents then Santa?  Think about it,  Santa just does it to do it,  you are doing it for some kind of one upmanship? Then that one lady kicked the Santa ornament off the roof?  You are a mean bitch lady.
-
Also evidently there is this guy named Tim Tebow and turns out he is good?  you would never have known that from reading my blog for the past year.

Christmas is coming

Christmas is the most stressful time of the year and here we are 12 days away from it.  Is this when I have to start on all that nonsense about twelve maids a milking etc and a partridge in a pear tree? -

Love me some Tim Tebow!

The phenomenon of Tim Tebow fascinates me.  I love watching him turn his doubters into believers,  But one of the things these professional analysts  get wrong is all this hyperbole that he is running a spread option offense in the pro game.  He really isn't.  Yes they have a few spread option plays that they mix in,  and yes, at the end of the Jets Game on that 95 yard drive , they went to it primarily,  but overall it is actually a very conservative pro set they are running.  They still have the same offense Orton was running, they just mixed in a few plays from the spread package.  They use it like training wheels but often Tim is riding that bike without either of the two training wheels touching the ground. 
-
Another thing the professional analysts do, is criticize his ability to throw the football.  Yet if you look at it objectively many of his incompletions are dropped passes.  I counted 4 in the Jets game.  That would have made him 13 for 20 instead of 9 for 20.   I agree his accuracy is one of his weaker points in his game right now,  but the emphasis the talking heads put on this weakness is exaggerated.  I have seen improvement in just the five  games he has played so far. (I have only actually seen him play in four of them,  I missed the Kansas  game because I went to the Bucs Game that day. )
-
Tim Tebow is a passionate football player and his enthusiasm is infectious.  He makes other players around him better.   He is like Helen Hunt in that movie "as good as it gets" He makes his team-mates want to be better football players.

TEBOW!

Tebow and the Bronco's are 4 and 1 since they began giving 15 the starting role. They were 1 and 4 prior to that.  Pretty sure that means something.  -- So happy for the kid! - Demayrius Thomas was actually the number 1 pick of the Broncos the year Tebow came out and probably even rightly so,  but Josh McDaniels Knew a football player when he sees one.

The People at Jiffy Pop should help me put my clothes away

Doing the wash the other day, in the way that I do it. ( I wash Dirty clothes, and they are all dirty, so I don't have time to segregate between whites and colors)  I probably had 3 full loads of clothes that needed washing,  but I only wanted to mess with one load, so I rummaged through the dirty clothes pile and filled my basket up by choosing just the clothes I would most likely wear in the next few weeks.  (favorite clothes status is kind of like favored nation status for countries if you as a person were a country)
-
When they were done and I was going to start the process of putting them in drawers and the closet,  I just reached in and grabbed a mess load of hangers for my shirts.  It just so happened I had grabbed the  perfect amount of hangers.  I had randomly thrown in 12 shirts without counting,  and also randomly grabbed 12 hangers. -- Its not life shattering or anything because If I had not grabbed enough hangers I could have just gone back to the closet and got more,  or if I had snagged too many hangers I could just put the remainder back. -  One of those two scenarios is usually what always happens,  but not that day.  On that day, my hangers and my clothes washing was in perfect harmony.  -  It is a small thing for sure, but,  it made me  happy.
-
Its kind of like eating microwave popcorn,  except with Microwave popcorn you usually hit on the perfect amount more than you find a shortage or an overage.  Most of the time,  when you are watching a movie or something and decide to have some popcorn, you pop it and then eat it, and when you are done with the bag, you are content.   You ate all the popcorn in the bag and you don't want more.  Sometimes though you eat the whole bag and you want more so you have to pop another bag.  Other times you pop that bag and you only eat 3/4 of it or so when you are full, or if not full,  tired of popcorn.    Usually the one bag is perfect.  Its like the people at Jiffy Pop know me.  

A couple of phone calls

A few days ago,  I received a phone call from the ex-wife.  Her agenda was basically that our daughter is about to get her Learners permit and we need to get her added on to an automobile policy.  Primarily,  My Automobile policy because you don't just add people on to a policy for free.  She wouldn't necessarily mind if she was added to Her policy, but what did concern her was who was going to be paying for it.  
-
So then I made a phone call, and found out that when you add someone that is not yet a fully licensed driver , as is the case in this situation,  they were not going to charge anything,  It's a year later when they get you.  
-
I also found out I could be paying a little less than I currently am  on my own deal, and it worked out to be a savings for me of $150 over 6 months!  Thats 300 dollars for the year! So that worked out well.  Out of curiosity though, I asked the what about in a little over a year from now?  How much would it be then,  once a 16 year old Girl is added? The answer ? around $1800.00.... Yikes! But,  that is still more than a little over a year away, so until then I am just going to focus on the approximately $300 savings I will be getting!

The Collage My Daughter made and I had framed

This past summer,  my daughter and I went to New York City for 4 days.  I blogged about it back then.  Shortly after we got back, she made a collage with the playbills,  various tickets to stuff we went on and some postcards.   Just recently I had it professionally framed and here is a picture of it:

The Occupy Wall Street Protest is ridiculous

The Occupy Wall Street protest is the most ridiculous thing.    These people evidently  believe that wall Street controls the government and that by hanging out in a park,  they will change things?    They apparently also want some kind of wealth re-distribution as well?  Idiot Nut bags is what they are.  Our political system is clearly a mess but the freedom to make a bunch of money if you have the smarts and know how is what built this country.  The people who dominate Wall Street and then subsequently influence politicians, is just  how the game is played.  I can respect that the nut bags hanging out in Zuccoti Park don't like the game, even though I disagree with them,  but their actions to change things is absolutely futile and misguided.  It's like they are throwing wet spaghetti noodles at a tank.  Sure it would kind of be a pain in the but for the tank commander but it really would have no effect.   I just can't believe how long it has gone on.  

The Ides of November

Here it is the Ides of November and I have posted one time this month not counting this one.  The month before that,  I barely came to play either.   I just have not been feeling it lately.  I miss that feeling when you just have to write and it kind of just comes out on its own.   I don't get that much at all anymore,  and sometimes when I do, the material is not appropriate for this blog.

Ahmad just needs a chance

The Bucs picked up David Sims today -  He is a Safety.  Very disappointing to me because they have Ahmad Black (Gator)  just sitting there on the practice squad.  - Hope the dude can play though and hope Ahmad gets a shot,  if not this year then next.  Pretty sure the dude can play at the NFL level.

Tootsie roll mouth

I bought some tootsie rolls to give out for Halloween but only had one doorbell ring.   It was a big group of kids,  maybe 9 or so of them but still,  thats it.   As I am writing this, I have a mouth full of about 5 of them and a half filled bowl as well.   Probably finish them off by tomorrow if not tonight.  To much candy is a bad thing for me.

Wisdom is not enough, sometimes it takes time as well

Two people I know are in a dispute, there is probably some truth on both sides. There is probably exaggeration each way as well.  All I hear are two different perspectives on basically the same issue.  My job isn't to determine who is right and wrong, but rather to help both of them see the others perspective.
-
 Problem is , each of them are so committed to their own side, neither will open up to the possibility of conciliation.   I have been one of those people myself.  I guess that experience should help me with the mediation but the fact I can see the errors of each of them,  is  no help to me in conveying the wisdom I believe I have to reach a peace,  except it is enough,  Its just the time frame is much to long.

Bill buys himself a new book

Just bought the Visible Man,  By Chuck Klosterman.  Now I need to find some time to read it.  I had intended to read two books a month this year,  but have barely  been able to get one a month.   I love reading stuff Chuck Klosterman writes.  He has a unique view on popular culture and his take comes in from out of nowhere.

October is just flying by

How is it already  October Tenth and I have not blogged in this  month at all? Lots of silliness has gone on and I am still living the bifurcated life.  Went to Louisiana this past weekend for the beat down those Tigers put on the Gators.   Was up in Gainesville for the beatdown Alabama put on em.  Went to the Buc's Monday Night game and at least the good guys won that little skirmish.  Saw the Steve Miller Band last Tuesday.  Staying out of trouble as best I can albeit with an assist from a friend of mine.

Another Rant on how important Sports are:

You know what it is?  It's about trying to do your best.  Tonight's Monday Night Football Game was about that.  - My Dad always tells me how unimportant sports are, but you know what,  Sports are so fucking important in real life,  and he,  and those other people that think that shit is not important are just wrong.
-
  The beauty of that game tonight was that people fought through adversity, people excelled when by all rights they should have been sitting on their couch.  Watching that game is the same thing as looking at a Million dollar piece of art.
-
Sports are such a magnifying glass on the human spirit.  Or,  call it what you want,   Sports is like art,  it just makes your inner soul feel good when it is like this.  Let me also tell you something about Rex Grossman.  Dude is a football player and that loss hurt him.  It is his job.  No one watches me do my job.  My job is probably not as important to the masses as his is.  My job puts a roof over my kids heads and feeds me and puts a roof over my head etc.  But Millions of people don't watch me when I fail.
-
I just know how awesome this past three hours was and what it means to me.  It means I can still strive, It means I can "Play Hurt"  I can suck it up,  I can deal with failure,  I can seriously appreciate how awessome that was.      

An Ode to Tony Romo

Watch me falling in love with Tony Romo.   I am doing it in the most non-Gay way that there is.  Seriously, not that there is anything wrong with that.  I am doing it on the Internet on my blog telling you about my love for the man.  Okay, seriously I know its not love,  but it is a High level of admiration.  Dude is the type of QB that everyone wishes they could be.
-
Just saying,  I have man love in a Non Gay way for the man.  Holy cow.  Dude had his lung punctured last week along with some cracked ribs and he  came back through all that to beat the 49ers while coming from behind (again, in a non gay way)
-
A week and a day later,  supposedly, his lung puncture has healed and he is,  allegedly,  only dealing with cracked ribs.   So this is what the Dallas Cowboys decide to do;   They get him a Kevlar flax jacket.  ---- Okay, ---------here is my thought process on that:  wouldn't that have been better last week?  Seriously,  why don't dudes playing QB in the league ALL wear that stuff?  okay, that's fine, maybe it hurts mobility, maybe it has some negatives I am not aware of,  so the  second thing they do,  is they Shoot him up with pain killers.  Nice.  That happens all the time in the NFL,  when you are talking about making millions of dollars a year to play you need to play even if you have cracked ribs and a punctured lung.
-
Seriously,  tell me this?  does a puncture in a lung really just heal itself in 8 days?  Pretty much I am sure that shit doesn't work that way.  So,  I think the dude had a little hole in his lung when he was balling tonight.  Dude is a star though and dude just plays football.  I love that about him.   Truth be told, I don't really love him I just love how he is.
-
You want to know what was cool?  after they won 18 to 16 and they do the little interview his quote was basically this:  Its Football season, that's when you play football.
-
Truly,  Seriously,  HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE THAT? IS THAT NOT THE MOST MANLIEST QUOTE EVER SPOKEN BY A DUDE WEARING A FLAX JACKET AND WHO GOT SHOT UP WITH PAIN MEDICINE and then on top of that dealt with inept team-mates?
-
Dude inspires me.

Good Day today for the billster

Pretty good day for the Billster.  It started off positive when I got dressed and found a Ten Dollar bill in the pocket of the pants I picked out this morning.  I Had not worn those pants for awhile,  so I don't even remember what I was doing the last time I wore em,  but evidently I was pocketing cash.  I love it when I even find a dollar, much less a ten spot.   
-
While working today on my assignments,  I had another one called in that was about 2 miles from where I was at the time, so I jumped all over that one which was good, especially when you consider I was about 150 miles from where I live.  Had I not been able to do it today,  I would have had to drive back down  tomorrow,  It's Just so much more efficient this way.   
-
I won my Fantasy game last night as I was winning pretty comfortably after Sunday afternoon and still had a Q.B.  Going tonight,  (I have both Rex and Tony on my roster)  because of Romo's rib issues I started Grossman and it looks like the right decision so far.  I am pushing to be the high scorer of our league for the week,  Still need a little more production from the Sexy Rexy,  but it is looking positive right now.  - We pay an extra 50 bucks each week to the top scorer so this might be a sixty dollar type of day for me not even counting how much I earned actually working.   So,  yes,  Happy day today and if Rex can get me about 10 more points,  I am golden.

Seth Godin had something smart to say about a problem I have been having for months.

From Seth Godin's blog:

-

Talker's block

No one ever gets talker's block. No one wakes up in the morning, discovers he has nothing to say and sits quietly, for days or weeks, until the muse hits, until the moment is right, until all the craziness in his life has died down.

Why then, is writer's block endemic?

The reason we don't get talker's block is that we're in the habit of talking without a lot of concern for whether or not our inane blather will come back to haunt us. Talk is cheap. Talk is ephemeral. Talk can be easily denied.

We talk poorly and then, eventually (or sometimes), we talk smart. We get better at talking precisely because we talk. We see what works and what doesn't, and if we're insightful, do more of what works. How can one get talker's block after all this practice?

Writer's block isn't hard to cure.

Just write poorly. Continue to write poorly, in public, until you can write better.

I believe that everyone should write in public. Get a blog. Or use Squidoo or Tumblr or a microblogging site. Use an alias if you like. Turn off comments, certainly--you don't need more criticism, you need more writing.

Do it every day. Every single day. Not a diary, not fiction, but analysis. Clear, crisp, honest writing about what you see in the world. Or want to see. Or teach (in writing). Tell us how to do something.

If you know you have to write something every single day, even a paragraph, you will improve your writing. If you're concerned with quality, of course, then not writing is not a problem, because zero is perfect and without defects. Shipping nothing is safe.

The second best thing to zero is something better than bad. So if you know you have write tomorrow, your brain will start working on something better than bad. And then you'll inevitably redefine bad and tomorrow will be better than that. And on and on.

Write like you talk. Often.

Vindictive stupidity

A story today on Yahoo about some legal issues that Erik Bedard (a pitcher for the Boston Redsox) is going through, kind of jumps out at you for both the reason they focus on in the article, as well as something they don't really touch on in the story that I feel the need to write about a little
-
Let me say this first. I really only know the details that were in the story, so my point of view is framed from that angle.
-
The gist of the story is that Bedard and a former girlfriend had a baby together and apparently they are no longer with each other. Bedard pays child support, but that agreement was signed in 2006 and now Bedard apparently makes a bunch more money so she is trying to take him back to get more money for her and her child. Fair enough, I suppose.
-
What the story focused on though was that the guy serving the legal papers is a NY Yankees fan. He wore a Yankees Jersey to do it, and was quite proud of himself. Also Bedard was starting that same day. The Redsox Organization asked if he could wait one day to do it on a day that Bedard was not going to start. The guy said his client (Bedard's X-Girlfriend) specifically requested that it be done on that day, so they let him.
-
Bedard ended up getting shelled in his start and only lasted 2 and 2/3 innings. We don't know if he was mentally a mess because of the service or not, but it very well may have contributed to his poor performance that day.
-
-
The Girlfriends insistence on doing it that particular day seems kind of vindictive. Maybe she has a right to be this way, I don't know, but it seems like it is in her best interest for him to do well when he is on the mound so he continues to enjoy that fat pay check. If the dude consistently gets shelled, that could be bad for her, and her child. So in effect, he is like the Oak Tree holding up her Tree fort of a life, and she is busy chopping at the trunk with an axe. Just seems like her own vindictiveness played out long enough, could be the type of thing that ends up having her little tree fort of a life crash down to the ground.

Tony Romo is a Gamer!

Color me impressed with Tony Romo. Dude had two cracked ribs and a PUNCTURED LUNG and was out of the game against the 49ers, but to hell with that, He sucked it up and went back in and brought the Cowboys back with 13 points in the second half, including a 77 yard touchdown to a T.V. Reality star. I am bringing the admiration for the man right here on my blog. Not a Cowboy fan but definitely an admirer of their starting QB.

Bill Thinks about Future Bill

Looking forward to watching Monday Night Football and also grateful for My D.V.R. How I Met Your Mother is on tonight and I am recording it for my future entertainment.

-
Future Bill is going to be pleased with present Bill for doing this. - Later, (probably tomorrow or maybe even right after the Monday Night Game tonight.) Future Bill is going to make a comment in the comments section thanking the 7:28 p.m. of September 19th 2011, Bill, that did this for him.

Coach Fox, Read this....

My eyes hurt from watching that 10:15 Monday Night game yesterday. The Raiders and the Broncos are clearly two of the most poorly coached football teams ever to play in the National Football League.

-
They were chippy, which is something that does happen, however neither coaching staff ever grabbed control. It went on all night. Additionally, they were un-disciplined so we had numerous offside calls both ways. Obviously they both have some talent and the Raiders even more so than the Broncos, but my goodness was it hard to watch. The game never had any rhythm due to the incredible lack of discipline. Also, Orton may be better right now than Tebow on paper, but I watched enough of Tebow in College to know he could have won that game for the Broncos if he was just given a chance. He makes everyone around him better and he wills his team to be better as a whole, regardless of the parts that make up the team. You play football on a field, not paper. Why is it so obvious to me but such a mystery to the people around him.
-
Someday Coach Fox will figure it out. Or he won't and the broncos will be mediocre long enough to get him fired.

War Eagle and Plexiglass

Funny is funny. Even when you think, Hey maybe I shouldn't be laughing at this because its just not right, if it's funny, well, then it's funny.

-
So Last Saturday one of the mascots for Auburn, the war eagle, did his thing that he does when they fly down over the crowd, except this time the war eagle flew smack dab into a glass door of a suite.
-
From the Birmingham news: ------" It looked like he hit the plexiglass hard" said Jamie Bellah, director of the Southeastern Raptor center at Auburn "I looked him over and couldn't find a bruise. It doesn't look very good when you see it on the video, but I think he must have recognized he was going into something because his feet came out a little bit."
-
Funny is funny.

Love having the NFL back.

Nice opening game, missed most of it because of a prior commitment. Not to say I was out digging ditches instead of watching football, no, I was out living my life, watching comedy. It was some top of the line comedy as well. Tommy Johnagin. Dude was just funny and my friend kept texting me throughout the night letting me know how Jermichael Finley was doing.

-
Jermichael Finley -- that was an awesome first quarter, how about playing in the other damn three quarters as well.

Sad Manning Face

Peyton Manning is not going to play football this Sunday. Neither am I. We are pretty much the same guy, except He has Peyton Manning Face and I don't.

-
-
He looks so Mopey in this picture. His face is like a novel, It's a sad tale of woe. As much as I enjoy watching him run an offense, having neck issues is a scary thing for anyone, Hell, its hard to just drive a car when your neck isn't right, much less play football in the League.
-
I hope he recovers, because he is truly one of the great players of my generation although if he misses the whole season we will be able to see what a below average team the Colts are without him. Dude has carried those guys for damn near a decade. This is some stuff I need to see.

Thursday, September 1, 2011

Finally, its back.

Football is finally back. This weekend there will be tailgating, some grilling and college women walking around in those sundresses. Life will be good.

-
Then we will see the new edition of the Mighty Florida Gators in a bit of a warm up game against FAU.
-
New Head Coach, New OC as well. The Legendary Charlie Weiss will be calling the plays. Hopefully he wont choose to run dive plays with 165 lb running backs, and he won't be running John Brantley on an option to the short side of the field. Seriously though how funny would it be if the Dive play is the first play of the game.
-
Love this time of the year!

White Mike Vick


White Mike Vick:


-----

Saw this photo on Yahoo today referencing an article on ESPN -
-
No matter what the implications are about race and our society, the first thing I thought of is that White Mike Vick, probably would not be able to run like Black Mike Vick does.

Mayhem.


This is such an excellent picture of Nevin Shapiro and Donna Shallala and the IBIS. (from Yahoo Sports) - She looks so dorky in her matronly clothes and her goofy smile staring at the check.
-
Of all the scandals I have ever seen, this one is absolutely the juciest. There are Yachts, Strippers, Night clubs, Fancy dinners, Prostitutes and just flat out Yumminess.
-
Its like slowing down to watch a car wreck, except its not just a fender bender. No, this is cars going over cliffs and bursting into flames. This is like a train carrying explosive gases derailing. this is absolute utter mayhem.

Pre Season Football

Little preseason football tonight which fires me up.

-
NFL network has a thing where they jump you around to all the games that are going on, and it is awesome. Just saw Gabbert from the Jags get sacked in the Jags/ Patriots game, then Vick throw a bomb to Riley Cooper, in the Eagles Ravens game.

Memo to the Bronco's - Let it come to you.

Bronco's need to get a grip. First they are going to trade Orton to Miami, then they are going to Start him, now they are talking about putting Tebow up on the trading block.

-
Just chill. Relax, the situation will work itself out if you just let it. The front office needs to do what is best for the Bronco's, but I get the feeling they are trying to make that decision way before they have the information they need, and way before they need to. Let the Pre-Season get here. You need at least two QB's on the roster. It will all work out.

things kids will argue about

Recently, Wells Fargo took over Wachovia. My daughter's Joke on that takeover is: Well I guess Wells Fargo is going to wachovia money. (read and pronounce wachovia like this: watch ovia)

-
She told that joke to us, (me and her brother) but then her brother used it in front of a cashier and got a laugh. She felt like He was stealing her Jokes and we had to discuss plagiarism/ and rights to jokes etc.

Funny dinner dialogue

Took my kids to an Italian Restaurant tonight. My Daughter had Fettucine Alfredo, and My son and I ordered a pizza. My boy ate two pieces and I wanted to make sure he had enough to eat, so I encouraged him to have a third slice. He was adamant that he was full, but I pushed it again. "come on, have another piece of pizza " I said.

-
My daughter chimed in on the conversation, and very intelligently said; "Part of the problem with the Childhood Obesity epidemic in America, are parents pushing their kids to eat more then they should"
-
Without missing a beat, and clearly not having the vocabulary to fully understand what His Sister had just said, My son said: "Plus I might get fat"
-
Maybe you had to be there, but that was some funny dialogue.

Yeah FOOTBALL

Probably wrong to let this day go by without noting that the NFL Strike is finally over and just in time too. The Bucs will be huddling up soon. The Game will be back.

My Saturdays and Sundays will soon be wasted watching football. (like its really a waste)
-

Need some Batting practice speed

The speed of life is just freaking frenetic. I want it to slow down. Its like facing Randy Johnson. Dude is throwing Heat and I am taking my cuts, but mostly striking out, plus hoping he doesn't get wild and throw one in my ear. I just want some batting practice Speed so I can hit a few line drives. I am tired of Randy Johnson Gas getting blown by me.

Cool Cell phone

Just a few weeks ago I heard about an app you can get on your phone that allows you to use it as a remote control. After researching it I found out it was something that you had to sync with your T.V. - I already have a remote control for my T.V. so it lost its charm for me, but now this new phone, I have to have this

Back stories

When I am in a populated public place like I was yesterday at Tropicana field, I often think about the back stories of the other people around me. Everyone comes from somewhere, everyone has stuff going on in their lives. We were there to watch a baseball game, but because of the nature of the game and the pace, its a time where you can talk and think about other stuff as well.
-
My Son loved the giant video screen that showed the players as avatars in the game MLB12. He told me multiple times how he wants that game for his Wii. Kid has a birthday soon and he will probably get it.
-
My daughter had her friend with her and they talked about things 14 year old girls talk about.
-
The Red Sox fan sitting next to me had driven from Boston along with her Dad the day before, not so much because of the game, but because she was moving here, and the Sox just happened to be in town.
-
She chose to move here because she was going through a divorce and wanted a fresh start on life. She sees herself going to the beach and living in the sun. Her Dad will be flying back this week.
-
There were 30 something thousand other people at the game yesterday, they all have stuff going on in their life. I wonder what their stories are, I wonder how many of them are struggling, how many are on top of their stuff, how many are going down the wrong paths because their circumstances to that point have led them that way. How many were happy, how many were sad.

Rays vs Boston

Rays game today with the little Werthers plus my Daughter's friend. Baseball and Hotdogs, that is some living right there.

-
My Daughter's dream is to go to Harvard. I fully support this, and will do whatever it takes to help her make that happen, but I have already told her that when she moves up to Boston for College, she should not become a Red Sox Fan. I am hoping that today, when we run into a bunch of Sox Fans, and she sees how arrogant and entitled they are, that it will go a long way towards developing her anti Sox mindset.
-
Fathering, I am just great at it!

A post to help me remember this past weekend

Took My oldest kid to NYC this past weekend. She said it was the best 4 days of her life. It was pretty awesome seeing it with her, and through her eyes.

-
We saw the building they are erecting to replace the World Trade Center. It is coming along nicely.
-
We went down to Wall Street and saw the New York Stock Exchange, plus the Wall street Bull. Fun fact, the bull is not actually on Wall Street. Its on Broadway. We went to see the Play; Billy Elliott, on Broadway, Except even though it's a Broadway play, it was actually on 44th street. We went to Times Square, the Flat Iron Building, China Town, and Little Italy.
-
They had a Harry Potter exhibit in the Discovery building which was near the theater where we saw the Billy Elliot play.
-
We went to the top of the Rockefeller center and the top of the Empire State Building. We rode the subway all over that town, and went to see the Statute of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. We rented some bikes and toured all over Central Park.
-
We saw the UN building and the Flat Iron Building. We met a friend of mine in China Town and on the way there, we saw a bucket full of Frogs. (they were for sale, 4.99 a lb)
-
We saw some break dancers in the street when we were walking back from the fire Works show they had on the fourth of July, and then a street preacher who looked more like a pimp, but he was definitely preaching. We gave a dollar to about 5 homeless people, maybe 6, we lost count . We talked with a couple of New Yorkers on the subway, had a really good dinner down in Greenwich village and saw a tranny walking down the street.
-
I took her to see Grand Central Station and we also ate some NY Pizza at Rays. We had some Hot Dogs from some street vendors and we also went to Moma. We got yelled at by the security guard for taking a picture of Van Gogh's Starry night with the flash still on, and we also rode a bunch of elevators in the Macy's on 34th Street.
-
We ate at some little diners, and we shopped in the Garment District. (as well as a bunch of other stores my kid made me go in while we were walking, including the M and M store and the most awesome Toys R Us.) - Plus we saw Washington square and a guy playing a Piano right under the Arch.
-
Took her to a Comedy Club in Times Square and we laughed. -
-
Good times, I am looking forward to taking my Youngest child in a couple of years from now.

A back pack of feathers.

Felt kind of happy earlier this evening. Still had all the same problems I have had recently, but for some reason it did not seem to matter as much today. I don't know if the fact some good news came out of the NFL Owners meetings in Chicago today, but that certainly didn't hurt any either.

-
Wish I could get the MOJO working like this more often, but it's just hard right now. Everything is Hard. I just feel a huge weight on my back lately but today it felt kind of like a back pack of feathers.

Dexter season is coming again soon!

Watching re-runs of Dexter. Is it wrong that I like this show so much? New season coming soon.

The "what if" game and the "Getting Old" Game are not fun.

Wednesday Night, our softball team had a double header. We lost both of them, and fell to zero and three on the season. (we got drilled last week)

-
We were competitive in each game tonight though, and had we just made a few less mistakes, we could have easily won both. You could also say; that if we had made the same amount of mistakes, but also just mixed in a couple of more hits here and there, we could have taken both of those games. That is the "what if'' game though, and that particular game can be played in all aspects of everyones life.
-
"What if" is a son of a bitch of a game.
-
I constantly find myself getting drawn into that little game, not just in softball, but in life. I am both blessed and cursed with an introspective mind. I constantly judge myself. Lately, it has been quite harsh for my life in general, and tonight with the softball game was no different.
-
Defensively I made one stupid throwing error and I walked two guys as well. Those are mistakes. Offensively, I went 1 for 3 in the first game, and 3 for 4 in the second. I hated making those three outs because all three of them were weak ass pop ups, and I am a pretty good single's type of hitter because I can generally hit the ball to any field. (not much power anymore though) I forgave myself relatively quickly with those particular things, but the real problem I have is that I actually felt old tonight.
-
I know that I AM old, but generally I don't think about it. Tonight was different. Late in the second game I consciously chose to not back stuff up defensively because I decided in order to continue to throw strikes and not walk dudes, I had to conserve my energy. I was tired in the late innings of that second game, the 90 plus degree heat and running around the bases just took a lot out of me.
-
It was harsh, but I was just short of puking at some points during the late part of that second game. I also saw the end of my playing days. It won't be for a few more years yet, but I had always told myself I would play softball as long as I was not ever the worst player on any team I was on. Tonight I was damn close with my lollygagging ass. Other dudes might not have had as many hits as I did tonight, and some guys made a bunch more errors then I did, but I am positive I was the only guy on my team that could not have made it through a third game if we had one on our schedule.
-
"Getting Old" is another son of a bitch of a game.
-
Neither the "what if" game or the "getting old" game are fun. In the former, it is just some bullshit in your past that you can't do a damn thing about, and in the latter, it really is just some shit that is going to happen in your future.
-
I would write more, because my weakness tonight is bugging me, but its early in the morning now, and I have to get up and go to work tomorrow.

Awesome App that I truly hope really exists

Someone I follow on twitter, tweeted that her Husband found an App for his phone that allows the phone to turn into a remote control for the T.V. She went on to say that he passed out because he got such a boner that all the blood rushed out from his head into his Johnson.

-
I want this app so bad, but only if it will work to control random televisions out in the public. Wouldn't it be cool to walk into a bar, and have everyone watch whatever it is that I think we should be watching?
-
Hope beyond hope that this is a real thing and that it has those capabilities.

Fail, then fail some more, then fail again.

Just pretty much exhausted right now. I want a month off or so from work, but am so buried that it would be impossible. It would be impossible even if I wasn't buried- work is just hard right now, and it doesn't look like it is letting up any. just lots of fail .

-
My Rent is going up this month as well. - Fail
-
I haven't been feeling this blog lately either, because I am kind of in the doldrums. Pretty sure I am not going to end up averaging 16 posts a month like I had sort of planned going into this year. It's Just another Fail for the billster.
-
Also a woman I like, gave me a 2:10 in the morning text this past weekend, asking me to come over, and I missed it because I was already asleep. That is kind of aggravating. -More Fail.
-
We finally got back to the new season in softball, and in our first game we got drilled. - Fail.
-
My Ex-wife disagrees with me on some summer issues, and of course if it doesn't go her way her natural inclination is to just threaten to sue- Fail

By definition if you eat other people you are a cannibal

Read a story today about a guy who was arguing with his girlfriend, and when it started to get physical, another guy stepped in to break it up. - The guy who started it, bit off part of the good samaritan's ear, and then swallowed it. --- Technically that dude is a cannibal.

Bill Gets political

Here is me being political. Ron Paul. Vote for the dude. - I can tell you why, but research him for yourself instead. - Short version, He will be harsh economically like we need, Even kind of like a grown up, but he will be liberal socially. Probably to weird for anyone to vote for him in numbers, but I think he is the best man for the job.

Lawyers and Judges and Billionaires and Millionaires going down the road of sadness

Today, an appellate court in St Louis upheld the NFL 's right to continue the lockout on the players.

-
The Players union representative, Demaurice Smith then had the obligatory statement that he is disappointed, but that they are prepared to be out for 2 years. This is depressing, and because of this ruling and the overall tenor of this whole dispute, today was the first time it occurred to me that they will not get this thing worked out in time for this NFL Season to start on time.
-
We will have the College game, but football season just won't be the same if they can't get it figured out. Plus I also heard HBO offered the hard knocks slot to the BUCS (assuming it gets worked out) but the Bucs declined the invitation.
-
Depressing news is depressing.

Negotiation.

My Kids negotiating with the police right by the left field line . Derek Lee had thrown Hunter a ball during the game and he was trying to play catch with it after the game during the Darius Rucker Concert. The police were concerned about an errant throw hitting someone else so they told him to quit. This negotiation resulted in them being able to throw the ball, under-hand.

-

We had some awesome seats right over the Orioles dugout.

Staying at the table and playing.

Okay, I am in no way thinking about killing myself. Seriously, In fact it would be the opposite. Hope that is clear, because earlier, when I was thinking about killing myself, it was in a context that had nothing to do with actually killing myself.

-
It went something like this; "Bill, all things considered, your life doesn't suck. You obviously have some problems in life, just like everyone else. Not saying you have everything going your way, but overall, and on a Macro scale, You have a pretty good life. "
-
That was how the thought process started. Then I started thinking about the future. which went something like this:
-
"Bill, up to this point in life, even though you have certainly had your share of getting slammed up against the rocks, overall it has been a pretty good run, Of Course that doesn't mean in the future you won't end up in prison, or homeless and dumpster diving in the back of a KFC somewhere.''
-
Then I thought about the old adage in gambling. Quit while you are ahead.
So that was when it occurred to me that the only way to do that in life is 1) have a good life so that you consider yourself ahead 2) Die.
-
If I were to drop dead now I believe the overall outlook should be that the kid did all right in life.
-
The correlation here is that I could also just continue having a good life and play it out till the natural end. That's the plan. Also, I think if a bunch of shit went wrong and I was actually "down" then the reason to live would be to dig out from that hole. So like Richard Bach says: "Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: If you're alive, it isn't"

Statutes of The Three Gator Heisman Winners






A Couple of weeks ago when I was up in Gainesville I went to see the new statutes they just put up.-- Go Gators!

Monday, May 9, 2011

Julie Scheneker can suck it.

Divorce is a brutal proposition. You spend a whole marriage becoming a team and working towards common goals, but then a cancer builds within that team, which tears it down. The divorce is like the surgery to not only cut out the cancer, but It's also the radiation and Chemo therapy that burns down the functioning parts of the team as well. Divorce is like the Napalm on the Marriage Jungle.
-
Parker Scheneker's Divorce has to be a thousand times worse than that. He was off serving his Country when he gets a phone call that his Wife killed their two kids for being mouthy.
-
So yes, Dude has the Marriage Cancer real bad, and needs the surgery. He has it so bad that you would think Julie Scheneker would just let it be, but the Bitch is trying to get her half of the assets. She is also trying to get Alimony and Her Diamond Ring. Basically, She is contesting the Divorce while simultaneously fighting her criminal charges for double murder of their children.
-
I guess she is planning on winning her criminal trial against the state, and then will need support from her Husband to maintain her lifestyle. This has forced him to file a wrongful death action (a civil action as opposed to criminal). I believe he has to do it because the way our divorce laws work, even though she murdered Their children, she would still be entitled to half of the marriage assets, because divorce in Florida doesn't concern itself with fault. The Separate wrongful death action will work to balance out the fairness (financially anyways) and shift it back to his side where it belongs. It's just so sad that she doesn't see the additional pain she is causing.
-
I thought the things My X-Wife did to us was bad. (still do, and I know I screwed up as well) Comparatively though, it really was nothing. My thoughts go out to Mr. Scheneker.

Riding the river

Thinking about riding the river, instead of walking on the banks. The River is much more fun, but it can also end up drowning you, or the rapids can slam you against the rocks. Of course sometimes its just smooth kayaking.

A Good day!

Great day today. Got some good solid work done, (for now, maybe later that work will turn out to be a mistake, but at this point in time, I am counting it in the win column.)

-
I bought a new book for myself that is about the human ability to remember, thanks to a reminder about it, that was written in a blog I read, by a guy up in Minnesota. Thanks Brian!
-
True story, I read a review about this very book a month or so ago, but then kind of forgot about it, until I was reminded today when I was reading his blog. (Kind of Ironic because it is a book about improving your memory: Moonwalking with Einstein)
-
Got an offer from a friend of mine to go to Game 3 of the Bolts/ Caps Playoff series and was able to get my rowdy on tonight a little bit. I am such a front running Hockey fan, but I am truly enjoying their run so far in the playoffs. Also, during the second intermission we were hanging out in the XO club, drinking a frosty, down in the bowels of the arena, and I saw Phil Mickelson. That was cool. I didn't even know he lived in Tampa. He was also sitting on the glass, just right across the rink from us.
-

Mickelson is just to the right of the ''y'' in the sweet bay sign.
-
Here are a couple of more pictures from the game tonight, including Ovechkin, when he was standing right next to me.
-
-
Plus the Thunder Bug just after he came running down the stairs and jumped on the Glass. It kind of startled me.
-
No doubt I am a front runner on this hockey stuff, but it's damned exciting right now.

where were you when you heard

I was at work in my cubicle on 9/11/01 when I heard the news about the towers, they announced it over the intercom system. A little while later, we were sent home. This morning I was brushing my teeth listening to my shower radio and Mike and Mike reported it.

Just my train of thought as I watch the NFL Draft

Watching the Draft-- Love it being on Thursday in Prime Time.

-
-Wow, Nick Fairly looks like Urkle, if Urkle was on steroids.
-Da'Quan bowers has two capital letters in his name. Thats just extra capitalization going on right there.
-Wow- Vikings really reached in picking Christian Ponder so high. I mean the dude can play, and I believe he will have a long career, but primarily as a backup and spot starter.
-Detroit is going to be a good team next year- Nick Fairley AND Suh? that is scary stuff. If Stafford can quit getting hurt, that team is going to do something next season.
-Come on DOLPHINS -- Don't screw this up!
-WOOOHOOOO! - Mike Pouncy to the DOLPHINS! First GATOR to GO! I likey!-- (noticed Adazio is in NY to be with him. - So glad he is no longer the Gators OC) I saw him hugging Mike and I wasn't angry at Him anymore. I can let it go now.
-I can't believe Prince Amukamara is still available and the Bucs are only two picks away! -- Crossing my fingers that SanDiego and the Giants don't snag him first.
- Wow Corey Liuget's mom has her Easter Sunday Church Hat on! that thing is FABULOUS! -- also San Diego did not get Prince Amukamara so he just has to get by the Giants now to be available for the Bucs.
-Uh Oh--- the Giants fans are chanting that "We Want Prince" - from my perspective, this is NOT good. Shut your Whore Mouths up!
-Come on Giants, pick someone other than Prince.
-DAMN. Stupid GIANTS.
-Prince's relatives are rocking the African Garb....
-Okay a Defensive End. Can always use a pass rush. Adrian Clayborn welcome to TAMPA!


A night of Winning

Excellent night tonight.

-
We beat our nemesis in softball to sweep them this season, and also remain undefeated. We got new shirts to coincide with our new sponsorship as well. (Buffalo Wild Wings is going to Pay our entry fee for us next season)
-
Then we went to BWW after our game to drink some beer , and catch the Lightning , as well as the Rays. They both won. The place was packed, and Playoff Hockey in a quasi Hockey town, is some good stuff, especially in a full bar on the big screen. I know my bandwagon self enjoyed watching it in that atmosphere As much as I ever remember watching Hockey in my life, with the possible exception of my 14 year old self watching the USA beat Russia on tape delay back in 1980. - Funny thing about that, I definitely remember watching it when they showed it on T.V. but after all these years I cannot remember if I was already aware they had won, or if it was a surprise for me when I saw it when it aired in the United States .
-
Just lots of winning going on tonight.

Hanging out with Mario Lemieux tonight, Sort of:

Went to Game 6 of the Lightning vs. Penguins Playoff game tonight. The Penguins Management/ownership, was in the suite right next to the one we were in, and I was able to sneak this Picture of Mario Lemieux.

I was not trying to be Paparazi, so it did not come out so well.
It was an awesome night. The Lightning won 4 to 2 to force a game 7, and we never ran out of beer in our suite either.
-
Towards the end of the Game, the entire Arena was going absolutely nuts, except for Mario's Suite. They just had a bunch of guys in Sports coats and suits sitting all somber like. I looked back over to their seats approximately 15 seconds after the final horn and that place was cleared out. Guess they wanted to get back to Pittsburgh.
-
Here is a better picture of Mario I found on the internet.

4/20 was just another day for me.

Today is 4/20

-
This day means something to the stoner cliques.
-
As for me, this particular day was about
1) Going to work - Stuff has to get done, and it is what pays all the bills, and keeps food on my kids table and a roof over our heads (two roofs actually)
2) Dealt with some maintenance issues for my car-- not anything major, just my steering wheel and ignition system giving me a little attitude.
3) Met my Ex-wife on this day, --- 19 years ago. (true story, it was a work related thing and no one wanted to go to meet her, so we drew straws and I had the shortest one - ended up marrying her.)
4) Played some softball (Most Wednesdays, this is a thing I do) and we did well, beat the other guys 20 to 5 and I purposely hit a single, a double and a triple. (honestly the Triple might have not been quite so purposeful, but I did intentionally try to hit it down the right field line in hopes of getting a double, and even as slow as I am right now with my lame hamstring, I was able to stretch it to the third bag.
5) Jogged a mile and a half. - Okay, truth be told, probably only ran about 3/4 of a mile and walked the other 3/4 -- Stupid Hamstring injury - if I had not had a softball game I would have had more time and would have put in about 4 miles.
6) Dealt with my kitchen sink giving me some trouble -- That ended up in a tie. It's still clogged, but I will work on it some more tomorrow.
7) Read a serious article about human life expectancy in which the author/scientist, argued we may be at the point of living indefinitely.
8) Drank a couple of beers at the bar after the softball game and watched the end of the Rays game as well as the 3rd period and first overtime of the Lightning playoff matchup.
9) texted my oldest kid a little bit, mostly just confirming her plans for this weekend and my duties as her chauffeur.
-
It was a day, not really a remarkable one, but still, it is what I got, and this is what I did with it. All in all it was good. Hung out with my friends, got some things done at work as well as some personal issues with the car and the exercise and the hanging out with friends . This is what I did, and thats how it went.

Atlas Shrugged a movie review


Saw Atlas Shrugged Part 1, Last night.
-
So happy the Producers and Director pulled it off. Obviously to make it into a movie, they had to cut ton's of background, just for the sake of time, they also shifted some of the scenes around, but the way they did it worked. What they didn't cut was the underlying story. It is still a story about competence and ability and passion, versus those that just take without contribution. In short they kept the philosophy instead of just making it about a train executive.
-
I was wondering how they were going to make it in the present day, but they were able to sell it in the opening and create the buy in needed. Taylor Schilling was Solid as Dagny and Grant Bowler was Excellent as Reardon.
-
As usual, the book is of course, better, but like the book, the movie is intriguing and interesting enough so that when you are done reading, or the film is over, you are left wanting more. Ayn Rand has been dead for about 29 years now, but her voice comes through in the movie. I believe she would have approved.
-
I will no doubt see it again and I urge others as well. It is good value for your movie going dollars and if they can make money on it, and it does well, hopefully Part 2 will have a bigger budget and they will be able to make it even better.

The "Secret" Happiest place on earth

I had the worlds most Obvious dream last night. If there were awards for easiest dream interpretation ever, my mantle would have the first place trophy sitting on it right now, all shiny and glistening. If I had a mantle, but since it is an imaginary award that I just gave myself it will fit fine on my imaginary mantle.
-
I remember a lot of it, because immediately upon gaining consciousness again, I purposely began memorizing it. Even doing that, some of it got away.
-
The Gist of it is this:
-
My X-Wife and I were riding in a limousine to the secret entrance of Disney World. Not the secret entrance into the lot where you park your car so that you may then get on the monorail to go into Disney World, but the secret entrance actually into the park itself. It was not exactly Disney World either, but rather, a special, reserved, secret Disney World . It had giant wooden doors like you might see on a castle, and I was amazed that they just opened it right up for us.
-
I remember that part distinctly.
-
I don't remember how or why we got out of the Limousine, or where it and the driver went, but the next thing I remember, is My Ex- Wife and I driving around secret Disney World in my car. She was at the wheel. We even had a discussion about her wanting to drive my car, to which I agreed.
-
She then lost control of the vehicle shortly after driving, and drove it into a little Gully. It wasn't a huge ditch, but it was big enough to cause some damage to the vehicle, it caused the steering to become difficult and dinged up the fender a little bit. We got out together, and assessed the damage, and decided we could go on until we could get it into the shop. My Ex- Wife specifically apologized for the accident and admitted to her mistake in running it into the gully so carelessly. We again discussed who would be driving and she still wanted the wheel, and I did not argue with her. We then went on our way again (I wish I could remember where it was in secret Disney World that we were going, but I just can't, I do remember however, that we did have some type of a purpose or destination that we were trying to find)
-
As we were going on our little mission in Secret Disney World, whatever it was, She was now driving on a flat, wide open grass field and we were heading directly for a Huge ditch, the drop off was probably at least 6 feet, almost like a little mini, cliff. I remember seeing it coming up and distinctly told her from my position in the passenger seat, that she needed to watch out for the edge or we will crash again much more severely. In the dream though it was much more direct and with less detail. I just said "don't drive over the edge" or something to that effect, When I told her that, it was absolutely inconceivable that the cliff posed any type of threat to us because to me, in my dream, it was so very clear what the danger was, and I remember thinking it would be no problem for her to just make a right turn and then run parallel with the edge. She did begin lackadaisically, to make the right turn to avoid driving directly over the side. I remember this being kind of amazing to me, that she could be that horrible of a driver, and not realize the threat, and that her nonchalance was quite inadequate for the situation. As we were now almost driving parallel to the edge, the left front wheel went over the side, she had tried to turn, but did not make it sharp enough. This caused the rest of the car to flip over the cliff and land on the drivers side doors and sheet metal. The car was absolutely crushed.
-
We got out of the car, neither of us was injured, but the car was in a spot that we needed lots of help to first of all, get it out of the huge ditch, and then we were going to have quite a bill to get the thing fixed and be without the car for a long time.
-
The next thing I remember was the two of us in a building, still within secret Disney World, trying to make arrangements to take care of the problem. I remember being dismayed about her driving ability as well, and asking her why. I distinctly remember thinking how stupid it was that she had not turned the vehicle more sharply and that I had clearly known in my heart that had I been driving, neither of the two accidents would have occurred.
-
While inside the building, we tried to find someone with a crane that may have been able to help us get the car out of the giant ditch but we couldn't find anyone, I don't think the telephone worked right if I recall, and we began discussing what we were going to do next. At this point My X-Wife began talking with some type of an accent that was hard to understand, I tried to tell her to knock it off, but it only got worse, to the point I had no idea what she was saying, almost like she was speaking pure gibberish.
-
I woke up at about this point.
-
Since thinking about it most of the day, the car clearly represents our marriage, but the failure to find help in getting it out of the ditch and to a repair shop, is also kind of telling. The damage was horrific, and it included mechanical as well as body work, but essentially, and theoretically, it was not un-salvagable.
-
As obvious as that dream is, and what it is about, (the demise of our marriage, from the perspective of my subconscious) what I don't understand is the timing. Why after 4 years since I moved out of the house, and nearly 3 years since we have officially been divorced did I dream this?
-
That is the best I can retell it, although in my heart I do know there are some nuances about it, that I just can't recall. I do think when we were in the limousine driving through the giant Castle like doors, we were extremely happy for being let into secret Disney World. This is essentially very close to how the dream played out in my subconscious.

Kissing your sister

Stupid softball game, damn rules of that park, and their silly acceptance of Ties in the regular season portion of the league. UGHHH, and when I say it was a tie, thats only because they scored the exact same amount of runs as we did, but it felt more like a loss. We had the lead, they had the last at bat, and they scored enough to "tie" us, before we could get the third out, and thats how it ends. - No extra innings, not even one pitch, just a tie that felt bad. - Still undefeated on this season though, so there is that.

Hanging on to that towel

Ever play tug of war with a little dog? They are Biting down on one end of a hand towel and you are holding the other, and you are just pulling and tugging, both toward yourself, and right and left, and that Dog Just hangs on? Even pulls back on it some. If it is a little dog you can sometimes even get them airborne a little, with the rough housing? - I feel like that dog right now, just hanging on and sometimes going airborne. - I guess sometime in the future I might be forced to let go. Then it will be time to see if I can get back on that little towel or find another towel. Just wish the person at the other end was a little easier. Hate going airborne with him, but that's just how he shakes it right now, and I like chewing on that towel.

Louis Murphy and his Silliness.

Louis Murphy was arrested in Gainesville the other day, Mostly for just being a jerk. The Gainesville Sun reported that he was in his Escalade with the music playing extremely loud, so Johnny Law pulled him over, except he didn't comply , he just continued on and went into a parking lot, then got out of the vehicle and basically just ignored the cop. This is always a bad ideal. They arrested him for resisting arrest, and then they searched his car, and found a bottle of Viagra. Evidently he did not have a subscription.



What was he thinking? Why would a 23 year old professional athlete need that stuff? I am a middle aged man, and I still haven't reached the point where I would need that junk.
-
The Commercials for that stuff is directed at Middle aged guys like myself and if it ever became an issue for me, I do believe I would get some, but at 23? Seriously? And why would you think you could just walk away from the cops?
