One Can Dream

Man I wish I had been born in China so I could be tall too. Sun Mingming is 7'9".

Holy Shit.

Say Whatttttt???

It turns out that drinking 7 liters of cola a day is bad for you. Who would have thunk?

I guess it is good to have solid evidence to show what will happen to you if you do things like this to yourself, but is this really surprising to anyone? I bet if you drank 7 liters of fresh banana juice there would be some negative health affects as well. Do they make banana juice? If not, then why? I've seen strawberry-banana juice, but not straight up banana as far as I know.

I will try to post some pictures and exciting commentary of our trip to Denver this evening.

Can you stand to wait that much longer? Try to pass the time with this Banana juice I just found in Japan:

New Postings

I need to get a new post up here so that people don't keep getting depressed by my obituary posts. Everyone needs to think about the Donut Burgers we had a Casey's birthday partay last night. They are a happy (although body shattering) thought.

I think Casey had a good birthday yesterday so that is good. I am exhausted. We stayed out a little late on Saturday after going to Macklind Days with the doggies, drinking and playing super chex at Mamacitas and hanging out at Enya Nightmare + CJs house. Then on Sunday I had a workout and cleaned the house like all day until people started arriving for the Burger Birthday Extravaganza. I think it went well. Very laid back and relaxing.

I'm going to Denver on Thursday.

Suck a Duck.

Ed Rauss

My Grandparent count has dwindled down to zero.

My Grandpa died on Sunday. It was in his sleep which is good. He has pretty much been ready ever since my Grandma died 4 years ago. It is probably no fun to sit around not knowing what is going on and eating mush all day. My Grandma totally managed their lives. He had a lot of good jokes. I liked his more subtle jokes like when he asked you to hand him his testicles when he really meant his spectacles. Rest in Peace.

At least we'll get to spend some time with family from out of town for the next few days. That will be nice.

Rauss, Edward Gordon asleep in Jesus, Sun., May 10, 2009. Beloved husband of the late Lois Rauss (nee Beckemeier); dear father of Gordon (Donna) Rauss, Linda (Steve) Knese, Bill (Denise) and Ed (Becky) Rauss; loving grand-father of Kelly, Kevin, Amy, Jeff, Greg, Lauren, Robin, Rachel and Reba; dear great-grandfather of Taylor, Dominic, Izabella and Kameryn. Services: Funeral from KUTIS AFFTON Chapel, 10151 Gravois, Thurs., May 14, 1 p.m. Interment National Cemetery. Memorials to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation appreciated. Visitation Wed., 4-9 p.m.

Check it out office fans

Look it is Phyllis from the office with me and my sister. She was just there at the roller derby match. She was very nice.

Overall a very good day. Went for a dog walk, vacuumed a shit ton of dog hair, did yoga (didn't go so well), went to the Stable for a graduation Partay, Roller Derby with a M80s victory, good times at Flamingo Bowl and The Firebird. The End.

Temporarily losing my mind

So I was really trying to motivate myself to get things done on Tuesday. It worked in my mind, but then I started to feel sick. I basically have been worthless for the last 2 days. I am feeling way better today though. This works out well because I am going to another Cardinals game today.

Back to my short sickness. I thought I was losing my mind last night. I am pretty sure I had a fever. I felt really cold and really hot from minute to minute. I took my temperature once and it was 99.2 and another time it was 88.1. I think my thermometer is broken. The thumb on my left hand and my right index finger felt numb. The night felt like it lasted forever as well. I dreamt/hallucinated that I was eating popcorn paper. This is like a notebook where you rip out the pages and they taste like buttered popcorn. I checked this morning to make sure this was not a real product. This morning I can't stop sweating although this is not out of the ordinary for me. That's all I can remember, but maybe more will come back to me.

Man King Ralph sure is an unorthodox king of England!

That is the best quiz I have ever taken on facebook. I can't say that my results were the most exciting (Riding a dinosaur holding a smaller dinosaur), but 3 cheers for creativity.

I am trying really hard to motivate myself not to be a lazy bastard. I think I have probably written this or something like it 100 times in the last few years. Damn I hope it sticks this time. I don't want to look back on my life and say that I did a lot of things and met a lot of great people, but mostly I just sat around and watched TV. Some people just have that drive and I need to get it. Ok thanks for listening I am going to go take a nap.

Things I need to do:

1. Fix the kitchen sink. I bought everything I need about 2 months ago but have done nothing.

2. Vaccumm the 1/2 inch layer of dog hair off of the carpet upstairs. In my defense our old vaccumm didn't pick up any hair, but I just bought a new one and hopefully it will do the trick.

3. Throw away and/or shred mail. I think I have about 8 months worth of junk mail that I have all over the house and in a giant box.

4. Figure out what to get Casey for her Birthday. I don't think I can get away with saying the Vaccum and digital food scale we just bought counts.

5. Get caught up with my P90X workouts.

6. Start getting smarter instead of dumber.

7. Start writing and/or playing music.

8. Beat Zelda.

9. Take the dogs for more walks.

10. Come up with a blog/website idea that will take the world by storm.

How would miss manners advise you to eat nachos?

I spelled vacuum 3 different ways in this message, and they were all incorrect.

I just joined twitter. It seems pretty pointless. Like if facebook was your car, then twitter would be the windshield wipers. Oh well. I really only joined because Casey did and I have to make sure she does not write terrible things about me on the internets. I am at Be there, or use your time more wisely.

I think a lot about blogging more often, but I don't do it. I'm kind of busy at work today so today might not be the day. Things are generally good. Flight of The Conchords at the Fox last night. We could not have had closer seats. It was pretty great. Jemaine wore a Cardinals T-shirt.

I got nuttin for now, maybe more later.
