For the past two nights, I've went to bed past 6:00 AM. The moral of this story is that I'm an idiot, but this is my theory.. If I woke up at say 8:00 AM, I'd be doing the exact same thing that I would be doing at like 2:00 PM. In my town, it's all the same, but I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. So where'd I leave off from my last post? I know you all are so anxiously awaiting the next one. Well, probably not, but if you're in here, I'm sure you have some time on your hands to read a little into my daily happenings, so I'll whip something up for ya to feast your eyes on.
After I posted last night, I did get to watch Torque. This movie, for the bad ratings it got on IMDB.com, was pretty good I thought. Sure, we all knew it'd be over the top as far as believability goes, but put that aside and it kept your interest the whole time. I'm a big Ice Cube fan to begin with, so that's one main reason I wanted to get it. Plus, I've heard some bad reviews about it, and for some strange reason when I hear a movie is horrible, I want to see for myself. Sometimes it's funny to see a really bad made movie, but I didn't think this was one of those. The main dude in this movie is a guy named Martin Henderson. I've never heard of him before, but he played the role great. Ice Cube was probably the 2nd or 3rd leading actor in this one. Henderson's chick in the movie was played by Monet Mazur. Interesting name there, but she looks good. In a semi-minor role was none other than my girl Christina Milian. It doesn't get a whole lot better than that.
After that, I take my movies back and come home.. catch the end of the Lakers game and Cork calls to hit up Denny's. We were due for our late night Denny's stop, so I figured I'd jump on that one. Also along for the trip was my cousin Kari. I decide to get my regular combo.. Cheesesticks and pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream on them, with water, for $6.97. No drama went down, but I think that's because we went earlier than usual. When me and Cork usually go, it's like in the 1:00-3:00 range usually, but last night we went around 12:00. So that was too early for the drunks and strippers to roll in.
Dollar Dog Day! That's right. Me and Cork Dizzle are hitting up the Cards and Bucs game tomorrow for Memorial Day. And hot dogs are only $1, which should be fun. I think this is the first 4:35 game I've ever been to if memory serves me right, but we're in the outfield seats down low. Last year during a game, we were in left field, first row, for the play of the year. That's when Brian Giles (he was a God to those fans; a shame to see him leave) made a robbing homer just a bit down from the wall where we were on. That was also an extra inning game that lasted till about midnight, so we definitely got our money for that one. The funny thing about this one is that I'll be missing part of RAW. Since 1996, I've not been home for only one Monday Night RAW show. That's probably a sad stat, but I'm proud of it regardless. We should be back to catch the second half of it, and of course I'll tape it as always. To check out my wrestling tape site, go here: http://www.geocities.com/bird33wrestling/index.html
Skeet skeet skeet!
So the rest of the day.. I'm hitting up a retirement party for a teaching uncle at a local Italian joint, and then after that, I'm hitting up my grandpa's 92nd birthday party. Should be some good eating there. After that, nothing is planned until 9:00. And as you all know, that's when Bam begins. So to kill some time before that, I might battle in some MVP Baseball 2004 for GameCube.
