Raspberry Tea

I always consider myself to be in pretty good shape, but Wednesday was a different test. That night I was called by my buddies to play some volleyball. I’ve heard they were playing the past few weeks, so I was interested. If it’s a sport, more than likely, I’ll give it a try. After I was done playing the night, I was crazy sore with my calves and feet. I guess it’s a different kind of workout than what I’m used to doing, but it was a lot of fun. I know what you’re thinking, volleyball is a girlie game. We had 10 of us that night with the notable locals being Ozzie, Fortney, and Sweet Pea. It’s been a while since I played before, but I thought I did pretty good. My serving was probably the best part of my game. I’m not the best at the net though, but you’ll have that. It was fun diving all over the place though, that made it worth it.

Last night I hit up another late night Denny’s trip. I went with Cork and Abby. No huge action was going down, but it got us out of the house. We got there a little before 2:00 or so. Not a bad crowd, but like I said, nothing worth writing home about either. I got what I had last time and it may become a staple. Super Bird with no tomatoes, a thing of rice, and raspberry tea. My bill was $8.05. Not too shabby.

Earlier that day, my boy Spank came running in my room at 1:30. Of course I was asleep. I had earplugs in (quality to sleep with) and he had to yell at me to get me up. It was worth it though as he wanted some Chinese. That’s always good times. Hopefully our Chinese place in town opens up soon. Spank can do some serious eating. He needs to be in one of those eating contests they show on ESPN2. I get my usual. General Tso’s Chicken, pork fried rice, cheese wontons, fried shrimp, Sweet & Sour Chicken, and some lo mein noodles. Then to end things, I get a plate of pineapples, peaches, and jello. Sweet tea to wash all of that down. Our bill together was a little over $11. Can’t beat that with a stick.

For the ESPN Radio fans who don’t know, you need to know this one. Starting today, and every Friday from now on, The Dan Patrick Show will feature none other than Keith Olbermann as his sidekick. They did a great job together from what I was able to listen to. They had Reggie Miller on when I was driving home from working out.

I really don’t have a lot to talk about today, but I was due for an update. So I have to please the masses in here and just ramble on as I usually do. For once, I won’t have a lot of wrestling talk to mention. I will note that Bret Hart and Vince McMahon shook hands this week and have agreed to work together on Hart’s DVD due out later in the year. That one will sell like hotcakes. It’s rough to see Hart in the shape he’s in now (still looks fine, but just can’t wrestle anymore due to concussions), but as far as his wrestling goes, he’s one of the best ever if you ask me.

Only 1 CD this time around. I’ve been sending a lot out, but haven’t got much new ones in the past few days. The one I did get is I Gotta Make It from Trey Songz. This is a young dude who does it big with pimpin’ music. You’ve heard the song already released from that album, Gotta Make It featuring Twista. He likes to do most songs by himself as there is only one other song that features people. That one is with Aretha Franklin (old school fans will appreciate that) and Juvenile.

I know Real World fans are reading this, mostly girls probably, but some of them will like this too. You know how it goes these days, they can swing both ways and that's fine by me. Anyways, thanks to Blahah for posting these on Lobstah. You may need to get a username to get in there, but I’m not sure if it’ll load up without having a name or not. Either way, it’s Melinda being all dirty at a bar and showing her stuff. I’m not big on her character, but you can’t argue the body. Check that stuff out at:

I haven’t ended with any rap lyrics in a while, so I’ll leave you all with some pieces of Badd from the Ying Yang Twins and Mike Jones. The opening to the song should be funny to the rap fans as it’s just a bunch of jibber. Then there’s one of my favorite chorus pieces and Mike Jones does that. It’s just a part of it, but it cracks me up with how Mike Jones says it. It’s on the Ying Yang Twins’ CD, United States Of Atlanta.

Collipark, hannnh
Chea! Yoh!
Mike Jones! Who? Mike Jones Jones!
Holla atcha boy baby, you killed it on this one man, uhuh
We got Ying Yang Twins and Mike Jones in the house tonight! Yo yo.
Collipark and Swishahouse in this bitch,
check it out, yo yo,

Cute face slim waist with a big behind
I need a dime that's top of the line
Cute face slim waist with a big behind

3 Quick Thangs:

1. I made some good garlic bread tonight. Put some butter in a pan, oregano, and garlic power. Heat it up.. layer it on top of your bread.. then put the bread in the toaster oven and it’s good times.

2. Today’s birthdays? Neil Armstrong is a big three quarters of a century, 75. Rick Derringer who is famous to me for doing the Real American Hulk Hogan theme turns 58. Marsha Brady is 49, dang. Patrick Ewing hits 43. Jonathan Silverman of Weekend At Bernie’s fame turns 39. And lastly, our very own Walz is a whopping 25.

3. I woke up today at 2:30 for whatever that is worth.
