I have had the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie (Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters) on my DVR for about 5 months now. I finally got around to watching it this weekend. I was a little curious as to how an 11 minute show was going to translate to a feature length film. It was pretty awesome. The song at the beginning was enough for me to go away happy. Evidently it was done by the band "Mastodon." It probably helps that I divided it up into 2 parts to watch so that nothing got annoying, but that is some good stuffs. OOh here are the lyrics to the song:
Don't talk, watch!Don't talk, watch!You came here. Watch it.Don't like it? Walk out.We still have all your ****ing money.Do not nudge, kick or jiggle the seat in front of you.I'm sitting there!I am everywhere at once and I will cut you up.If you make out here,I will cut your lips and tongue from your head with a linoleum knife.Do not explain the plot.If you don't understand, then you should not be here.Your money is our money and we will spend it on drugs.Do not crinkle your food wrappers loudly.Be considerate to others,or I will bite your torso and give you a disease.Did you bring your baby?Babies don't watch this.Take the seed outside. Leave it in the streets.Run over it after the show.If I see you videotaping this movie,Satan will rain down your throat with hot acid and dissolve your testicles and turn your guts into snakes.
I had a dream Sunday morning that I was running the last mile of a marathon for a 70 year old guy named Doug. I knew it was for Doug because I was wearing a medallion with his name on it as I finished the race. What does this mean do you think?
I had my midpoint weigh in for the weight loss contest and I lost 6 more pounds. That makes a total of 19lbs lost as far as the contest is concerned. I celebrated by eating pizza, pie and Cheez-it crackers last night. Don't worry......the Cheez-it crackers were reduced fat.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November

I was reading about how they celebrate Guy Fawkes night in England and it makes me glad I don't have to eat their cuisine. Here are two things they typically eat today: 1. black peas with vinegar and 2. Groaty Pudding (also known as Groaty Dick). If I start to struggle losing weight I just need to go to England where the food is required to sound and taste disgusting.


Ok I was going to write some funny stuff, but I read this (http://www.ginandtacos.com/?p=1154) and decided that anything I wrote would be inferior. There is always tomorrow for the funny to come back to me.

Last night was fun and felt good. Hopefully the good feelings continue. Ashley, TH, Ben & Ben Mom & Dad, Ida & BF the missus and myself watched the returns at Lemmon's. A bar full of pessimistic dirt bags (myself included) cheering on a politician is really saying something in my opinion.

Did you vote for Babar the Elephant? I think he's a libertarian

I voted today. Did you? Obama better win because I haven't voted for a presidential winner since 1996. I think I went to the polls too early though. I got there at 6:10 am and I wasn't done till about 7:40 am. There was a line going halfway down the block. As I was driving to work at 8:20 am there was no line outside. It wasn't bad though. It was a nice morning to stand out on a street corner. I think I will hang out outside of the baptist church every morning from now on just for kicks.

Boar-ed (that spelling makes saying you're bored more exciting)

Does anyone want me to talk about how bored I am? I will spare you that, but I am bored. Just in general.

I partially blame my weight loss contest. I have been working out for 2 hours a day on weekdays, and slacking a little bit on the weekends. This makes me feel like all I do is workout and then come home to an empty house because Casey is either working or doing something roller derby related. I do feel pretty good though as a result of my fanatical exercise regime. I have even been exercising in the morning the last few days. Who would have thunk?

The Halloween weekend was pretty fun though not super eventful. We didn't feel like handing out candy so we went to eat some Ethiopian food with the Shadow and BG. It was delicious as usual. We were the only ones there. I hope that a lot of these small local places aren't forced to close because everyone is scared about money. Hopefully it was just empty because it was Halloween. We went home and handed out a little candy and tried to find scary stuff on TV. I wanted to see the new Kevin Smith movie, but I couldn't rally the troops enough so I gave up.

Saturday was such a beautiful day. I went for a dog walk early in the morning. Then I convinced Casey to go to Kaldi's with me to drink coffee and read while sitting outside. I love coffee now. I feel like I should have tried to like coffee harder back in the day, because I feel my life would have been better. I think I had 3-4 cups of coffee and some delicious food. I made a little bigger dent in Infinite Jest. Being in that neighborhood really has a lot of great memories too. We used to do laundry down the street and hang out at Kaldi's. Casey used to even work there right when she moved to St. Louie. I kind of want to live in that neighborhood, but there might be too many old white people for my liking. I guess we will make that determination if we ever decide to move again.

We attended a party on Saturday night and I dressed as a typical American tourist. I wore a Hawaiian shirt, plaid shorts, striped socks, camera bag, baseball hat. It was pretty much how I dress except that I don't usually wear Hawaiian shirts. So I didn't win any costume contests. Casey went as the Black Dahlia, but didn't actually cut herself in half. It was a pretty good time. Casey got hammered and was in fine form as usual. We have some great photos from the Jack in The box drive thru.

Yesterday was the Roller Derby awards banquet. It was a fun time, but I left early so Casey could have a better time hanging out with her roller homeys.

I feel like I should have something funny to say, but I am at a loss. Check out my igrobot that Julie and Scott gave me for by Bday:

I grew it myself. It has actually grown a lot more since this was taken last week.
