Its like this: --- when you were a teenager, and you had acne problems You would of course pop em. Some of the tougher, deeply embedded zits would kind of hurt a little bit especially if they weren't quite ripe for harvesting. --- This work week was like popping one of those premature zits, and this Friday is like when it explodes out onto the mirror! -- Just a relief, Yet you still have to clean up the mirror and wipe the blood from your face. -- Thats what fridays are all about. Cleaning up the mirror and dealing with the bleeding.

I generally accept people who believe in the Bible and Jesus Christ. Most people I know, believe it is the truth. - Some of them are even kind of smart on other things. I don't try to argue with them anymore, because I have done so in the past, and you can just never win this argument. They believe because they just believe, and no rational argument against it is going to change their mind. As long as they are not pushy to me about it, I just let it slide.
But seriously, when you think about the stuff they accept as truth, with no verification, it is mind boggling. A Devil? and Hell? Except Hell only counts if you don't believe in the Bible and Christ as the savior? You are allowed to be all kinds of an asshole shit head in this world , but if you believe in Jesus and you apologize for being that way, then you are good to go to Heaven? BUT, if you are the theoretical perfect person, and also don't believe in Jesus, then you are destined to go to Hell for Eternity? Sounds like manipulation to me.
Living life is awesome, and it is scary to think that after you die, you are just dead. I don't want that myself. I truly would love to be able to think that I could have eternal life in this Heaven they invented. That would be so great, but it just makes no sense. Look, I get that its a conundrum, our existence and all and maybe there is some kind of higher power, but I can promise you there is no religion in the world that has any clue about that. All of them make shit up to mollify the people.
Also, this God of theirs is kind of a prick, but no one ever calls him out on it? He supposedly told that one dude in the bible to kill his kid to show that he loves him more than his child? Pretty petty if you are an all powerful being. Another thing that always kills me, is when someone has a tragic thing happen to them like getting cancer, but then they overcome it, they immediately thank the lord for the miracle that happened in curing them? DUDE? If he was all powerful, then he must have let you get the cancer in the first place, right?
Anyways, I am burying my point, as well as the reason for my rant, but I just read an article about a dude who believed in a certain passage in the bible that talks about handling serpents (snakes) except it bit him and he died. Okay, that's fine, he is just a nut, Except His Dad also believed in the same stuff and he also died because he believed in that same passage in the bible and a Snake got him as well. (years before) the dad was 39 when he died and the son was 44.
I am pretty sure if there was a god he would at least want you to learn as you go through life.
Stupid is just stupid, and now it is two generations of stupid.

This Is a Kid in Texas who had the image of Matt Bonner shaved into his head! (Matt Bonner is a backup on the Spurs and used to play for the Mighty Florida Gators) The school he attends does not approve because they say it is a distraction, and they are threatening to suspend him unless he changes it. I totally disagree with suspending the kid but can see how it is a distraction. I should be working right this very minute but the image has distracted me So much I had to put it up on my blog and write this little post about it. ---- So to the school, I still think you are wrong, but I get your point completely!!

To much up and down lately. Looking at everything, It is more like I am treading water than swimming anywhere with purpose. .....
Need to get my fins on and get going.
Even if it's the wrong direction, It has to beat just keeping my head above the water.
Summer will be here soon and that is something to look forward to at least, although I don't think I will be able to swing any traveling.

Ordered myself some Cheeseburgers today from the king, except they took awhile to get them for me and I guess the lady at the counter felt bad about the little bit of extra time it took. She added an extra order of fries to the bag for my inconvenience. Very nice of her, and I thanked her, but seriously Burger King Fries are the worst. If I had wanted fries I would have went to the McDonalds across the street. Silly Burger King Lady!

So I go to the Doctor today for a routine checkup and during the process the man says to me: "You are in relatively decent condition for a slightly overweight, middle aged man." - The truth can hurt. I know I carry a little extra around my midsection. I also know that I am Middle Aged.
The problem is when I see myself in the mirror I see how I used to be, and when I think of my age I still feel like I am in my early thirties. -- anyway, He just told me to Take my blood pressure pills, try to lose a little weight, don't drink quite as much, and come in next week so he can stick his finger in my butt. (Its called a digital exam, to check on my prostrate) - It is a completely normal exam for guys in my age range, but still------ I DO NOT WANT TO DO THAT....

"Alcohol whipped me. Alcohol and I had many marvelous times together. We laughed, we talked, we danced at the party; then one day I woke up and the band had gone home and I was lying in the broken glass with a shirt full of puke and I said, 'Hey, man, the ball game's up," -- Harry Crews

A box of Twenty piece McNuggets cost $4.99, and evidently, at least according to the McDonald's Commercial, a good thing to do is buy them and then offer to share them with a hot chick who just happens to be sitting in a McDonalds, by herself, not currently eating anything. So now you know what to do if that situation ever comes up. Thanks McDonalds!

NFL fans are split on Tim Tebow. Lots of haters suggest he is not that good, and then there are others, like me, who think he is a diamond ensconced in coal. All you have to do is dig in that coal mine a little bit to find it, and you will get your Elizabeth Taylor sized rock. Believing in Tebow is like believing in John F. Kennedy in 1962, when he said that man will walk on the moon before the decade is done. Ask Neil Armstrong if that actually happened in 1969 if you are not sure how that worked out. Ask Ike Taylor of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who got burned on that 80 yard touchdown pass in the Bronco's overtime win against them last January If Tebow can play. That was a Precision pass, and a textbook stiff arm by Demaryius Thomas. It was also the equivalent of sending Monkeys into space. It was just a glimpse.
You may have gotten fat and out of shape in your life, but then if you lose the weight, or, as a comparison, believe in Tebow, it's like not only losing it all, but also digging in the back of your closet to find those old jeans that you used to wear, except when you try them on again, you find a hundred dollar bill in the pocket. Tebow is that Hundy. You just have to believe. Tebow will provide that extra reward, that incredible scramble, that impossible finish, that Hundred dollar bill in the forgotten pair of jeans.
There is no doubt in my mind that Tebow is a better QB than Sanchez, and if the Jets coaching staff is open minded enough to bring him in, they are probably open minded enough to see the truth when it presents itself. They may sit there for awhile and only see the coal. Their 1962 selves, may not believe that man will walk on the moon someday, but eventually, I am sure they will see the monkeys orbiting the earth and begin to wonder if they can fit into those pants that are in the back of their closet.

Happy for Tim Tebow getting a job the day after he was essentially fired. The Bronco's didn't think he was good enough, even after saving their season last year and leading them to the playoffs, yet because it is Peyton Manning that replaced him, its hard to argue they did the wrong thing for their organization. Not to many 36 year old quarterbacks that have had 4 neck surgeries in the past year with a questionable arm due to nerve damage that you would take over Tebow, but Peyton is that guy.
They essentially sacrificed Tim Tebow for a chance to have Peyton run their organization for 2 or 3 years and pursue a superbowl birth. As Tebow is an admitted virgin, it is the first time in NFL history that a team sacrificed a virgin to go after a superbowl.
Good thing there is not much media presence in New York City because I am sure Tebow sitting on the bench will hardly get noticed.

Yesterday, I came across a picture in the current issue of National Geographic of a Rhinoceros being hoisted upside down by his legs from a helicopter, and it just made me happy for all mankind, because seriously, It's A Rhino hanging upside down from a helicopter. Rhinos do not just voluntarily do that, People made that happen. They did it for the benefit of the Rhino to transport it to a new habitat. They did it to make the world a better place.
Today, I came across something else that makes the world a better place. Taco Bell has a new Taco, in which the Shell is made of a GIANT TACO SHAPED DORITO. It is delicious, But why is it just now here? Doritos have been around for a long time, and so has Taco Bell. Its like that Movie Serendipity when John Cusack's character and Kate Beckinsale's Character kept missing each other.
Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack Eventually hooked up, and finally, DORITOS and Taco Bell are together. How many times in my life have I eaten a Taco at the Bell, and later on the same day had Doritos, but never made this simple connection, This beautiful, fabulous, wonderful connection?

There is a picture in National Geographic of a Rhino hanging upside down by his feet, presumably from a helicopter. (The Helicopter is inferred)
A Rhino is a Big Ass stupid animal with a Horn on it, kind of like a Unicorn except real and a lot bigger.
It was someones job to make this happen. I love that. I love that Man is capable of hanging a Rhino upside down from a helicopter. (they were doing it to move him to a better area)

Admit it, life is better when there is butter. We don't have enough Butter, everyone agrees life is better when there is butter yet I feel like there is not enough clammoring for it... Is Butter taken for granted? I think it might be. Bread with butter on it becomes toast. Hot women rubbed in butter is better than simple Hot women. Butter on top of a steak is the difference between an Applebees and Ruth Christs.
So maybe no one else will say it..... But Damnit, If Peyton Manning goes to Denver, that will piss me off to no end.
Here is my problem with that scenerio: For one, If that happened, there is no doubt that Peyton would deserve to be the number 1 Q.B. He is just better that TEBOW. My second problem is that Elways's promise that Tebow would enter the offseason as the number 1 QB would be bullshit.-
Finally, even though I used to live in a suburb of Denver, I am still more of a Tebow fan than a Broncos fan. Hiring Manning would be great for Denver, but not so much for Tebow.
Plus, The NFL would lose an awesome Storyline, which is why in the end Denver was just raising the price for eitherMiami or Kansas City.

Had some issues today, and I wrote a post about it, but it came off more like whining, so I deleted it before putting it up. The problems I had today really weren't that much in the overall scheme of life. Here we are at 6:21 pm and they are done. The bottom line is my Saturday did not turn out like I had envisioned it when I woke up this morning.
I did get a little bonus problem right when I thought all the issues I faced today were done. My Right Rear Brake light has failed. Not a biggie, but there is no way I can take off the taillight enclosure to access the bulb, so I will have to take it to the shop eventually. For now I just plan on driving around with it. Its just one of the two bulbs on the right side, so it will still show any drivers following me when I am braking, and the left side is fine. 3 out of 4 bulbs should be enough. Other than the money it will cost, and the inconvenience of having to take it into the shop, it is certainly a very solvable problem.

Watching the Grammy's tonight and once again finding myself loving Taylor Swift. Its this simple, She is singing her song that asks the question "why you gotta be so mean" and she is killing it.
If you are living somewhere under a rock and have not heard it, the song is about Taylor Swift singing a song and tonight she is strumming a banjo to make it happen and its like a banjo is the most normal instrument you could ever think of to play because she makes it that way, And she is slaying a grammy audience. then when the audience gives her a standing ovation ....she looks over everyone and her face tells a story of someone who is proud and grateful and it is so beautiful.

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

That guy is living the life. He is a good looking dude, He is one of the very best quarterbacks in the world. He makes tons of money, and he is married to a Brazillian Super Model who actually earns more than he does! Imagine having all of that! So very happy for his success in life.
His wife even sent around a sappy E-mail to all his friends asking them to think positive thoughts on his behalf. I wasn't on the list but someone leaked it to the press and now people are ragging on them. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/gisele-sends-disgustingly-sappy-email-asking-friends-pray-154747410.html
I get rooting for a team playing against Tom Brady, I will be doing that this Sunday myself, but hating on Tom Brady because he has it all is just wrong. Ragging on his Super Model Wife Cause she is sending it out to the universe also strikes me as being petty, but I do like that line in the article comparing her e-mail to wishing Warren Buffet financial success. .

Wednesday Night Softball doubleheader tonight. Lost the first one 24 to 20, and won the second game, 22 to 12.
Not really bragging, but I did think of an analogy that I want to use, so I have to tell you. I usually just poke singles, but tonight I had a Stand Up Triple. That is allot of damn running right there for the Billster. It is quite rare for me to hit for power anymore, but I was feeling it a little tonight.
How rare is it for me to hit a Triple? just about as rare as a true Lesbian sucking a penis. (things Lesbians don't really do, just like me hitting a stand up triple lately )

Some United States Marines are evidently going to be in a bit of trouble with their superiors for peeing on some dead Taliban soldiers.
If I were their commanders, I'd Slap em on the wrist and be done with it. I would tell them not to do that again. " Mr. Marines, going forward, Please don't pee on any dead Taliban soldiers."
Presumably they had just killed those guys, which, in the overall scheme of things would seem to be more offensive then getting peed on after you are dead. No one is mad at them for doing that because thats what you do in wars. Let them slide for pissing on them afterwards. Those guys were trying to kill them. Its war. let it go.

True story about Tonight. I worked late today until at least about 6:30 p.m. or so. I had ate a little breakfast, but no lunch. I looked in my refrigerator and none of that stuff seemed worthwhile so I decided to head up to my favorite bar. On the way, I texted a neighbor of mine to see if she wanted to go.
She texted me back to say she was already hanging out at the bar, So, when I arrived, it was already going on.
I saw this absolutely beautiful woman, but she had the tiniest nose. I truly worried that if she ever got even a decent sized booger in her Rhino, she might suffocate, because this girl had the tiniest nose and corresponding little itsy bitsy nostrils it worried me. No way that her finger would ever fit inside those breathing holes to ever get any type of boogers out of there. lets face it everyone picks their nose, except this girl probably could not fit her fingers in if her life depended on it. Still, as tiny as that was, she was super hot.
Then a french dude from France came up to us because he was lost. He had flown in earlier that day but somehow got lost and instead of going to Clearwater he ended up in downtown Tampa. It was awesome, I gave him directions and wished him well on his journey back over the bridge, but deep down I wondered how much he understood. True story the dude was FRENCH and he primarily spoke that language and he had asked ME how to get where he was going.

Fantasy football has been over for a couple of weeks. This was one of my worst years ever. I came in Dead Last in one league, and close to the bottom in the other. My team was horrible. In the league I came in dead last, here are some of the mistakes we made.
* Picked CJ2K with my first pick and he absolutely sucked this year but I kept plugging him in the lineup anyways hoping that week would be the one when he broke out.
* Picked Marshawn Lynch really low and thought I had a steal, but then after he did pretty much nothing, for the first 5 weeks We dropped him, and wouldn't you know he went off after that?
* Started Kellen Winslow over Fred Davis way to many games
* Drafted Shonn Green way to high
In the other league I had some bad breaks as well.
* Darren McFadden was awesome until he got hurt relatively early in the season, no big deal though he will just miss a couple of weeks I thought. Not true, dude never came back from an ankle. Dude couldn't be decent enough to just get Hurt really bad so I wouldn't continue going around with hope he would be back any week.
* Had Adrian Peterson as well and he missed a few games from an ankle and of course by the time he got back it was a little late. (then of course he had that awful injury after that and I doubt he will ever be the same)
* Scored the second or third most points in a week on 4 separate occasions, but went 1 and 3 those weeks because the schmuck I was playing outscored even that those weeks.
Don't get me started on how disappointing the Gator Season was as well....

Spent New Years Eve with my kids. We watched a "Big Bang" Marathon. That is a T.V. Show they seem to like, not some kind of porn. We switched over to watch the ball drop just before midnight, and I had to explain Dick Clark's deal to them. So sad for him.
Took them to the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day, except it was really the Second of January, which was the way they rolled this year, due to January 1st, falling on a Sunday.
