I just fell in love

Man tonight has been uber relaxing so far. I can not complain. I came home from work, played with the dogs a little, ate a sandwich, took a nap, watched some baseball & Into The Wild and then went on a dog walk once it wasn't balls hot out. Beautiful. Even though the guy dies at the end of Into The Wild, it still really makes you want to take off and go west for at least a few weeks.

I had a lot of fun over the weekend with the roller derbies. We drove to Evansville, IN so Casey and the St. Lunachix could take on the Demolition City Roller Girls. The venue was really cool and we kicked some ass so it was nice to demoralize the home fans. I also ate some pancake puppies at Denny's on the way home. They are like funnel cake balls covered in cinnamon & sugar and dipped in syrup. Man were they not terrible.

A word of advice for Evansville and the city government: Don't make people pay $15 dollars to go to a festival called the Freedom Festival. Especially when it is 95 goddamn degrees outside and you also block off the entire riverfront to anyone not willing to pay $15. This is one thing that St. Louis really has going for it. Free stuff to do. Festivals, parks, zoo, etc, etc, etc. I bet the VP fair or whatever it is called now makes a lot more money than the Evansville freedom festival even though there is free admission. Bad Evansville. Oh you also should do something about most of the houses in your town falling apart. There are some really nice looking houses, but 2 out of 3 had the roof caving in.

I wish I had some pictures from the trip, but our camera sucks and I need a new one. Maybe an anniversary present for us. 5 years, can you believe it?

Oh the reason I titled this post Church is because that name has been following me around the last few days. They showed Pet Semetary at Lemmons last night and the zombie cat's name is Church. There is also a guy on the Met's named Ryan Church. I also got a message from someone I used to work with in the prison food warehouse. This reminded me of this guy I used to work with in said prison food warehouse. He was quite a character. His name was Church (I'm not sure why). My favorite memory of him was when it was super hot one summer and he made a fake air conditioner out of a cardboard box and put a fan inside of it. It was heelarious.

Alright I need to go have a date with Resident Evil 5. I love you.

Take this sinking boat and point it home, we've still got time

That song "falling slowly" from Once (the movie) still gives me goosebumps when I hear it. It's always good when a song can continue to do that to you. I'm a wuss what can I say.

Funniest Onion headline I've seen in a while:

Chinese Woman Gives Birth to Septuplets, Has One Week To Choose

It has been a good last few days/weeks. Some highlights:

-Hung out with Ricky, Karista and watched the Boston Strangler at work in her fancy Scottish outfit. Complete with Chuck Taylors.
-A lot of good thunder storms. You know they are good when they wake you up and your sissy dogs won't leave your side. I need a better camera to try and capture some of the cool stuffs.
-Saw the Hangover, which didn't disappoint
-Have been to the outside of the Royale 2 times in the past week, which is always nice
-Had a BBQ with The Mrs, Karista and Anne. Food was great and we sat outside all night
-Saw some fine Roller Derby and hung out with Sean & Big Ben
-Got a new monitor for my computer which is pretty sweet. 21.5 in and full HD
-Spent some time with the folks and they helped me fix my sink and get the Ice maker working
-Beat Zelda finally. It was a great game, but it took forever
-Finally turned the A/C on
-Bored anyone who reads this to death so I will stop

Half & Half

Does anyone else think that it's fun to eat/drink food way after the expiration date?

Me too.

It's all just a marketing ploy.

In other news, can someone give me a ride to the hospital? I can't feel my spine.

Off to yard work.

Remember that time you were in Lone Wolf McQuade

David Carradine could have at least done himself in with the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique. Rip dood

Welcome to Joon

That was a bunch of pictures from our trip to Denver. Can you believe it?

It was a good time, but it went by very fast. Thanks Johnnie and Kevin for being so hospitable.

Some highlights (in no particular order):

1. Sleeping in John and XXXmas's bed
2. Petting their cat's with a sock on my hand so I wouldn't start sneezing
3. Hiking around Red Rocks and Boulder
4. Playing some hoops
5. Catching Nuggets fever (only to be slapped in the face by the Lakers)
6. Great food (especially this Mexican place right outside of the store selling the oldest beer in town, Heidi's Deli (I know it is a chain, but it was good) and the vegetarian restaurant w/Kevin
7. Seeing a roller derby girl's dress get pulled over her head (this would have been my highlight if I wasn't too cheap to pay $20 to see Denver roller derby. This will be Casey's highlight)
8. Giant G&Ts in Mugs for $2.50
9. Botanic Gardens ***
10. No mosquitoes
11. Free form Clarinet/Piano/Guitar/Accordion/Violin jams
12. Seeing some olde friends (have you seen them lately? they really are olde)
13. Star Trek - I just bought a bottle of red matter. Who wants to partay?
14. I'm sure I'm forgetting some things, but life goes on

Since we got back it has been life as usual, although I feel a little more motivated and rejuvenated. I can't say it has amounted to much yet, but getting the mind right is a good first step. I fucking HATE mosquitoes.

We (Ben, Ashley & I) had a great debate/screen writers meeting at Lemmons on Monday. We decided the next big entry into the Supermovie genre (you know meshing big budget franchises ex. Alien vs Predator, Freddy vs Jason, Joe vs the Volcano....) is.............

Police Academy vs The Terminator (copyright 2009)

I don't want to give away any secrets, but let's just say that Mahoney is in for a hell of a ride.

Last item:

I finally went to The Pageant. It was to see the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They put on quite a show. I highly recommend them. I know that it has been open for a long time, and I used to live down the street, and I've wanted to go countless times, but I finally made it happen. Maybe I just wanted to go because it was to a sold out show and I had to work hard to find tickets at the last minute. Who knows. I called a few numbers on Craigslist at about 7 o'clock. This guy had 4 tickets, but he was also selling tickets at the baseball game downtown. He said he would take a few bucks off if we met him at Broadway and Market to make the purchase. We made the buy without getting out of our car, and I half expected to get pulled over for suspicion of buying something else. It was a strange little experience, but all was well. There were some of my friends and a bunch of Rolley Skating girls there. It was a nice place. You could see well from everywhere pretty much.

Blah Blah Blah

OOh I almost forgot about my sweet (painful) sunburn. It looks like I was wearing a sportsbra in the sun for about 7 hours. Really I just did way more yardwork than I expected while wearing a wife beater. What the hell, here you go:

That is the most skin you will ever see of me.

Pleasant evenings.

*** I don't think that you can call one thing a Botanic Garden and another a Botanical Garden and have them both be right. Who's with me? Well ok. I give up.
