I am wearing my defunkt "I'm this" T-shirt today, so I thought I should write something:

I am nasty... which is not nice.  Everyone else violently, violently humped a lunch.  How ocme Jean Conkey the mean honeky fell asleep on yer daddy?  Everyone else freaked out a acn of tuna.  Last night, everyone else fell asleep on everyone's butt.  eYr daddy aws all like "our lucnh is rotten".  Some chick yleled at the butt and is now totally tired.  Then Dooley smoked teh lunch then fell asleep on me... Yer daddy heard about then laughed at some chick.  Our rotte,n cold dog is so nasty... whichi s not nice. 

...And I'm spent.

Daylight Savings Trouble
Posted Tuesday, October 14, 2003, 7:38 am, [link to this entry]

A few days ago, as I was driving somewhere, JCTMH called me.  Somehow, by the end of the conversation, we got on the subject of daylight savings time.  When I complained about how early it gets dark, Jean told me not to worry, because soon we would change our clocks and instead of getting dark at 7, it would get dark at 8.

I told him he was wrong, it would start getting dark even earlier.  We both agreed that in the Fall, you turn your clock back one hour.  But, Jean insisted that this meant we gain an hour of daytime in the evening.  He was so stubborn and argumentative, that he almost got me to agree with him.  But I stood my ground, and I am here to say:

JCTMH, you were wrong (link).

DQ Something Different (updated)
Posted Thursday, October 9, 2003, 1:47 pm, [link to this entry]

Some time back, fellow Duck Dooley recomended that I try the DQ Cotton Candy Blizzard.  I didn't rush out and get one, because I generally prefer things like peanut butter and chocolate and coffee flavorings in my ice cream, rather than fruity stuff.  My staple is the Reeces Cup, with hot fudge a close second.

But today at lunch, I found myself at a DQ with an extra $2.32 burning a a hole in my pocket, so I decided to try "Something Different".  The DQ Cotton Candy Blizzard is made up of vanilla ice cream, a scoop of some pink mystery goo (which I assume gives it the cotton candy flavor) and a scoop of Pop Rocks, blended.  It tastes great.  On a scale of 1-10, I give it a 10, hands down.  Thank you DQ, and thank you Dooley, for bringing this wonderful creation into my life.

UPDATE: I have had Cotton Candy Blizzards twice since posting this and I am convinced that my first Blizzard was a fluke.  The ones I have had since then have had Nerds in them instead of Pop Rocks, which in my opinion greatly reduces the quality of this treat.  Be warned.

Help Me Sell My House
Posted Tuesday, October 7, 2003, 8:18 am, [link to this entry]

I have my house in Indianapolis up for sale.  I am going the FSBO route right now, but haven't really had that much interest since it's hard to get the word out.  So, before I take the plunge and list it with a realty service, I'd like to try somthing else.

Have you ever wanted to be a realtor?  Well, now's your chance.  If you help me sell my house by referring someone to me, I will give you $1000.  That's right, a cool grand, and all you have to do is tell your co-workers, family, and friends to check out 4622 Whitview Lane if they are looking for a new home.  No actual realtors can be involved in the transaction, that way I can get a good price, the buyer can get a fair deal, and you can earn some spending scratch without having to shell out thousands of dollars to some "Talk to Tucker" schmuck.

Just think about it... $1000, delivered personaly to your hand, in cash, no tax, just in time for Christmas.

I have a kick-ass flier in an "Info-Tube" outside of my house, attached to the For Sale sign.  It has a description on the front and a floorplan on the back.  I have posted the front as HTML here, so you can take a look at what it is you are trying to sell.  All things about the sale are negotiable (price, appliances, etc.).  If you are interested in getting some fliers (to, say, post at work), let me know and I will either mail you some or bring them to you ASAP.

So get started, spread the word, and make sure they tell me you referred them.  It's a great house, but I HAVE to sell it, and I need your help to do so!

Stef and I went to Chicago this past weekend to attend an Eddie Izzard show.  Eddie Izzard is Stef's favorite commedian.  Eddie Izzard is also a British Transvestite.  His humor takes some getting used to, and not just the style of humor but also his pronouncination.  He's got a wicked British accent and sounds half drunk most of the time. 

The performance was pretty good all in all, except for the annoying couple that was sitting directly in front of us.  The girl would get so excited about a joke or a comment made by Eddie during the show that she couldn't even scream or laugh, instead she would start bouncing up and down in her seat, shaking, while looking at her boyfriend with her jaw dropped.  I swear it looked like she was having a sezuire.  I am glad that they were having a good time, but seriously, chill the fuck out.  I wanted to punch her in the back of the head so bad.

While in Chicago, we met up with JCTMH and his finance', along with Damien Robinson (an original Duck).  Sean came down and went to the Museum with us, then the other two joined us for dinner at Fado'.  It was a great trip, except for the traffic into the city which reminded me why I moved the hell out of there 3 years ago.
