I went out to the bar on Saturday night last week because it was my buddy’s birthday and that’s what he wanted to do. So after a little while I join him, along with another guy and my buddy’s wife. As soon as I get there I can tell this experience is going to irritate me, since both guys are already somewhat sloppily drunk and the girl is doing her best to keep up.
As I sit there sipping my water, the one guy starts talking about religion and his belief in God. Needless to say, he pretty much makes a complete ass of himself, putting together arguments that only made any sense in his mind. I managed to stay out of that conversation for the most part.
The next conversation revolved around his thought that Netflix would take over the world, making cable tv go out of business. He was quite happy about this fact. I just couldn’t stop myself, since you guys know I’m generally pessimistic on the future of Netflix. So I argued with the guy, basically calling him out on every single one of his talking points.
20 minutes later, I was ready to slit my wrists. Drunk people do not care for rational, reasoned arguments. Let my pain be a lesson for you people.
Random Thing I Enjoyed This Week
I had a really good week on the weight loss front, dropping down to 235.6. That’s an additional 6 pounds for those of you keeping track at home. I’ve only got 15 to go before I reach my goal, then I get to spend some of the money I’ve been saving on getting contacts. I’m already pretty handsome, so I’m pretty sure my contacts are going to be a guaranteed panty remover.
I found some $3 cargo pants at Wal-Mart when I went there on Sunday. I wore them to work today and they didn’t fall apart, which is a win in my books.
Once I was in Wal-Mart and I saw some $1 shorts. Being a cheap bastard, I was naturally quite excited about this. I went in for a closer look, only to discover they were much too big. I said to the girl I was with “should I just let this deal go, or should I gain 50 pounds to take advantage of this?”
Random Thing That Irritated Me This Week
I’m discovering lots of great blogs that I want to read. It’s going to be a challenge to keep up, but there’s all sorts of good stuff out there. I’m also trying to comment on more blogs, instead of the 6 or so I consistently comment on. You know, broadening my horizons and what not.
What’s annoying about commenting are those blogs that send you a thank you for commenting e-mail, along with the blogger’s RSS link, Twitter link, etc. Bloggers, your audience isn’t stupid. They can find your RSS button easily. Adding another email message to my already cluttered inbox makes me never want to comment again.
And while I’m on the topic, if your blog makes me click a confirmation link in an email just to subscribe to comments, I probably won’t bother. And I don’t even have anything better to do. People are lazy, don’t make them do extra work.
Song I Like And Therefore You Should Too
While I’m typing this, I have the TV turned onto one of those music channels, and the macarena is playing. I will not subject anyone to that violation of music. Instead, let’s go with a little Michelle Branch.
I’ve always thought Michelle was a little underrated. Her second album is one of my favorites, I’d recommend it. It doesn’t hurt that she’s a little easy on the eyes too. She could maybe take home the coveted crown of being the babe of the week. I know how the ladies are lining up to win that.
Simpsons Quote of The Week
Mr. Burns: Nonsense! Dogs are idiots! Think about it, Smithers. If I came into your house and started sniffing at your crotch and slobbering all over you, what would you say?
Smithers: If you did it, sir?
Sports TV You Should Watch This Week
The debut of The Next American Restaurant was solid, even though it did make me hungry like the wolf. I want the grilled cheese guy to win. I would definitely eat a grilled cheese with chicken and vegetables inside of it. I don’t really care about watching all of the challenges or anything. Can someone just tell me who wins?
I watched some spring training baseball this week, watching my Jays give the Pirates a good whooping, although I’m pretty sure I could get 9 guys together and beat the Pirates. I also watched the Yankees and the Orioles battle to a 0-0 tie, which was about as satisfying as a tofu burger.
March Madness starts this week. I don’t even like basketball and I’m still itching for it to start.
Blogging Snack Of The Week
In celebration of getting below 240 pounds, I bought Blizzards for me and my fellow chip jockey. I’ve said before that bad food is very much more satisfying if you’re trying to eat well. While I enjoyed my blizzard today, it wasn’t the orgasmic experience I thought it would be.
Oh crap, does that mean I’m turning into a health nut? I hope not. I’d still recommend the Chocolate Extreme blizzard. It’ll satisfy your sweet tooth… TO THE MAX!!!
Babe Loosely Related To Finance
I was going to go with Charlie Sheen’s porn star girlfriend, but I’d have to be paying attention to him to know her name. Instead, let’s go with this picture I found of Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and my girl Taylor Swift. It’s a pervert’s dream come true!
