For all of the good Denny’s trips late at night, Saturday night (we got there around 3:30) was rough. For some reason, it was jammed packed at that time. The bar crew usually arrives around 2:30 or so, but by 3:30, it clears out. I’m always there late at night as everyone knows and normally it’s laid back and we can just be bums. Last night I think me and Cork were the only sober people in the place. First, we had some off duty cops sitting next to us and just acting all big and bad, screaming and yelling. Of course, they drive home drunk, but so doesn’t everyone there. I won’t get on a rant for that, that’s another story for another time. Then another matter had this dirty girl almost get into a rumble with this other chick. People in the place were standing up and waiting to go outside to see the melee. Unfortunately, no heads were busted, so there was no excitement with that. Everyone loves a fight, admit it. I can see why I definitely am not a bar guy. Within about 5 minutes, I’d want to get out of there because those guys are annoying, plus I’m not wanting to deal with smoke all up on me and being the only person not drinking. I’m sure I’m in the minority with that, but that’s why I like to do my own thing.
With that opening, you’d think that I was ready to start pimp slapping my monitor. Nope, I’m actually in a real good mood. Rarely am I in a bad mood as I think I’m pretty easy to get along with. Before Denny’s though, we got our Wal-Mart on. Cork had to load up on some things for his beach trip this week and I was bored and wanted to get out of the house. We hit up the DVD section, as that’s part of any Wal-Mart trip pretty much. The new $4.88 bins are pretty good. Some quality movies in there. And then you go to the $5.50 bin and those are just trash. I don’t get it. Why would better movies be in the $4.88 bin? I went to the $7.50 section and picked up a classic that I’ve seen before, but never owned. That one is Swingers, starring Vince Vaughn and John Favreau. There’s also some Roller Girl action. Heather Graham for the ones who don’t know, but she’ll always be Roller Girl to me for her Boogie Nights character. Boogie Nights is in my Top 5 movies of all time for whatever that is worth. Anyways, if you haven’t seen Swingers, you’re really missing out. It’s some good stuff that doesn’t get as much credit as it should.
I’ll play just about any sport if asked. I get a call on Sunday afternoon to play some ball. What kind you ask? Tackle football. I’m sure I’d do just fine playing, but I don’t think tackle football is a good idea to play with no pads when you’re pushing 30 years old. The speed is there as always with me as I haven’t lost that, but I don’t want to be breaking anything and I’m not exactly the biggest guy out there. Funny thing is, the dude who called me is smaller than me (even has the nickname of Smalls), and then there’s another dude who is about 5’5”/120 who played. Go figure. How those guys don’t get broken in half, I have no idea.
A few new CDs since the last update on Friday. What are those you ask? The first is from a group that I’ve been listening to now for about a decade. They are The Dayton Family from Flint, Michigan. They had a big break in putting out stuff due to a few members being locked up. From 1996 to 2002, nothing really happened. Now they’re back an in action after jail time with Family Feud. Check it out if you want some gangsta rap that’ll remind you of the old days. These guys get it done. The other CD I loaded up on is from Lil Wayne. It’s not released in stores and I can’t really find much out about it, but it’s called C Squared and it came out this year. It’s good though, but I’ve always been into Lil Wayne’s stuff. “Weezie F Baby, don’t forget the Baby.”
Tonight at midnight, I’ll finally have Madden 2006 in my hands. I’m sure I’ll have a lot of updates on that in the upcoming posts for the video game fans out there. I know a lot of guys are in the middle of getting NCAA or Madden this year. It’s tough to get both and devote big time to each, so I normally go for one or the other each year and switch it up.
3 Quick Thangs:
1. Right now I have 8 icons on my desktop.
2. I’m sitting around chatting around and nothing is on TV. A few girls are telling me about Talk Sex with Sue Johanson on the Oxygen Channel. It’s just funny because it’s this old chick telling porn stories and people call in. I might be hooked, too funny. Girls are just as porned out as us guys, they just won't admit it.
