Sip Stealing: The Madness!

Welcome to the last post of March, we're moving along to warmer weather. That means that I have to start mowing grass soon, not fun. Even though my yard isn't big, it's still the point of having to do it on a regular basis. The fans are beating at my door and demanding a new blog, so when the happens, I must get the typing fingers ready before someone chops them off with a machete. What's happening in this edition? We get some Easter chatter, flavored jelly beans, sip stealing, WrestleMania, Corndog with some of his wise words, and much much more..



It's been around for a while, but it's still a commercial that I like. That would be the Coke commercial that deals with sip stealing. For those who are under a rock and don't know of sip stealing, I'll give it a quick intro. You're at some dirty gas station and run to the fountain machine. You're filling up your 44oz fat boy cup with Coke and start to chug some of it right away before you pay. As you drink a fourth of it, you then refill and then go pay for it. I'm sure some reading are guilty of that. I know I am. Some of my buddies give me a hard time on the gas station trips for this, but I don't see it as anything major. As the commercial motto goes, "Not a felony in all 50 states".

Did Easter treat everyone fine? Mine was great, no complaints on my end. As usual, and it's a regular topic around the blog, Cadbury eggs. It's only the greatest candy ever, nothing else can even compare. I loaded up huge on them this season, although I'm pacing myself on eating them a bit. I haven't ate as much junk food through the week like I normally would. Also, Easter is also a time for church-going people to do their thing. I never preach about religion in here and don't intend to this time, but I'll go another route..



I hit up Easter mass early Sunday morning. It's been a long time since I've hit up the Sunday morning mass for Easter because usually it's Saturday evenings (Catholic) for the vigil. It always is funny to see bums you haven't seen all year show up on holidays. You didn't even know they were part of the church anymore, but they want to come a few times a year and still claim to be part about. To each his own, but Easter is a quality time. I was at Monongah for this service and the singing level compared to my regular church is not even a comparison. My home church could be in the running for the worst singing congregation there is, bar none. I'm going in a direction than I wanted, so I better get back on track to my church question. People always say that it's not right to check out chicks at church. Come on now, the rest of you dirty guys can't say you don't do the same. You get the dirties dressing up big time for Easter and you see some sights, that's just how it goes, part of the deal and it can't hurt matters.

I was eating some Jelly Belly jellybeans the other day. You know the ones I'm talking about. It's the brand with the wacky flavors. I'm not a fan of wild flavors and trying different things with candy. Make it simple, I'm easy to please. I bit into one the other day and it was popcorn flavored? You kidding me? Seriously? I like popcorn, jelly beans aren't too bad either, but together? A huge thumbs down from me, that's not a good combo and it was worse than it sounds. They might as well have a roadkill flavored bean. These remind me of the candies that Harry Potter and his crew ate on the Hogwarts Express, it was that far out there.



I was talking to the great Corndog on Yahoo the other day. He was bored and was telling me he was just going through local chicks on MySpace for no reason just to be nosy. Good to know I'm not the only one who does that. I think most people who have the MySpace craze spend half their time looking at people they don't even know. I haven't delved into the Facebook action yet. I know I'm years behind that, but it'd just be something else I'd get ate up with and I'm already ate up on the internet enough. Corndog busts out this gem on us about girls in West Virginia: "I wish all the girls around here weren't alcoholics." Wise words from a dude you just have to respect. He tells it how it is and I couldn't agree more. He also made another funny mention. He says on the front page, you'll see the girls claim they don't drink and party. Then you click on their pics and they're out at some smoke infested filthy bar, being half naked and obliterated drunk. Yeah, that's who I want to bring home, sign me up for that trash, not for me. Not for Corndog either.

A quick sleeping update. For some reason, people like hearing about my weird hours, I'm not sure why either. But if it's what the people demand, I'll update it every so often for no other reason than that. Last Friday night, after no naps the week before, 12 hours of sleep. I went to bed at 10:45 PM on a Friday night, who does that? I did and I wake up at 10:45 AM, all refreshed and ready for a marathon or something. Then the next night, I'm up till 4:30 AM, not too bad for my standards, but I had to wake up early for church. I wake up at 8:00 AM and roll out of the house at 8:30 on a few hours of sleep. Then I come home from church and sleep from 10:30 until 2:00. I eat at 3:00, a nice circle there. Also, believe it or not, I was in bed all this week before 12:30, that's improvement.



This weekend, it's the Super Bowl. How so? The Super Bowl of wrestling is what I'm talking about. If you're a wrestling fan or not, you know all about WrestleMania and I'm getting excited for the festivities. I used to get every single pay per view for years, but I've slacked way back now on that. I'd get a lot more, but most of my crew tapped out on wrestling and aren't fans anymore. I'm still as big of a fan as ever, but I don''t need to be paying $40 a month for it. This Sunday is an exception though. It's pricey, but it's 4 hours of the biggest wrestling spectacle of the year. On stunning HD, it's a whopping $70, that's just nuts. Regular TV is less, but that's a tough decision to make. HD is definitely worth it to me, it's that good, but we'll see. Time for quick predictions while I'm at it:

WWE Championship Triple Threat Match: Randy Orton (Champion) vs Triple H vs John Cena. I'm going a different route here. I say we get a swerve and Orton retains somehow. I know it's always cliche for the "good" guy to always get the win to end Mania, but stranger things have happened.

World Heavyweight Title: Edge (Champion) vs Undertaker. Taker's 15-0 streak at Mania is in question here. I can't see him losing, so Taker will be your new champ.



Floyd Mayweather vs Big Show. The big drawing card for the mainstream media is this match. We get a midget in a sense in Mayweather against a guy that is 7'0"/400lbs in a boxing match. No way Show wins this one.

Flair vs Shawn Michaels. If Flair loses, his career is over. This is THE match I'm most looking forward to. I know Flair is ancient, but he's still my boy and I think this match will be pretty good. After Monday's in-ring segment between these two, if that doesn't get you amped up, Mountain Dew style, then I'm not sure what can. Down goes Flair in this one, in a bloody mess.

Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Due to Jeff Hardy being a druggie and getting suspended, he's no longer in this match. He was the big favorite to win this thing, but not anymore. I like a lot of wrestlers in this one, but 3 have no chance (Benjamin, Morrison, and Carlito). That leaves us with CM Punk, Jericho, Kennedy, and MVP. The smart thinking makes everyone want to take Jericho. I'd like to see Punk or MVP get the win, but I'll still pick Jericho.

Batista vs "Umanga". Please please, give Umaga a big push. Let him beat this guy who can't wrestle, but I figure Batista will win and then act all tough and roar like a lion.



Finlay vs JBL: Belfast Brawl. I look for this to be a real good physical battle. Finaly is going to make the slow JBL look like a million bucks. Finlay takes the win here.

BunnyMania Lumberjack Match: Ashley & Maria vs Beth Phoenix & Melina. This match is basically to hype up Maria showing her naked self in Playboy. I've seen the pics already. She looks nice, but nothing we haven't seen before. Playboy doesn't do a whole lot to me, gotta do more than just lay there naked. Not that I won't look at it, but there's a lot better along that same lines to look at if you ask me, you know what I mean. Ashley and Maria win.

Bird's Dirty Thug Ho of the Week: I never know if these links work if I don't have the direct link, but this seems to work on my end, so we'll get her out there to view: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=56371

Bird's Video Moment of the Week: Unforgivable #1 - "Go up there and just give me a chicken sandwich with some waffle fries!" http://youtube.com/watch?v=0dJu1Jj7VTw



3 Quick Thangs:

1. Let's try birthdays for Friday, March 28th. Former Red Sox player and always on the Hall of Fame bubble, Jim Rice, he starts us off with 55. Model Kathy Ireland, 45 already, wow. "Salt" of Salt-N-Pepa fame, she's doing it for her 44th. Basketball analyst, Kenny "The Jet" Smith, 43. Freddie Prinze, Jr, who a few people said I look a bit like, 32. Celeb comparisons are always funny to me. James Van Der Beek of Dawson's Creek and "Mox" from Varsity Blues, 31.

2. Today's Fun Fact: Rats multiply so quickly that in 18 months, two rats could have over a million descendants.

3. I was watching Idol with Cork and his girl Kristen last week. Somehow, something got me and Kristen talking about The Monkees. Out of nowhere, I figured I'd download a Monkees CD and we were all about it. They're goofy, but it's not too bad at all for some 1960s jams. Who else listens to gangsta rap and then the next day puts in some Monkees? Yep, I have too much time on my hands.

Did you know you can buy the Harry Potter Bertie Bott's Every Flavor beans? I've seen them around a lot but one place that has them consistent is the candy store in the Meadowbrook Mall by the arcade. That arcade is getting sad by the way, I can remember back in the day when that place was rocking and I threw about 50 bucks away playing Arch Rivals, NBA Jam and the original Street Fighter. Anyway, they have all the flavors on those Harry Potter beans - booger, dirt, bacon, rotten egg, earthworm, earwax and vomit. There's also regular flavors mixed in there. It's gross but you gotta give em a try some time.
