Lethargic. Idle. Indolent. Languid. Sluggish. Slothful. What are all of those? Those are words that are synonyms for the word lazy. I guess that's what I've been the past few weeks on the blog. The people were getting restless, so it's time to crack the fingers out and get to typing up what has been going down in my world. Sometimes, there aren't many huge stories that are going down, other times you just turn into a bum and don't feel like writing things up even though you're still online 24/7. In this one, I'll talk about a top 10 list of things I dislike, Undercover Boss, a movie review, Jersey Shore DVD, Chatroulette, food frenzy on Friday, a supplement update, new CDs, and other things that we can pile in. We'll see what the stories hold this week..
As you wait around for the second season of Jersey Shore, you have something to keep your interest until that. Earlier last week, the DVD of the first season came out, uncensored if that does anything for you. There's a lot of extras on this thing too. I got it on the mail and have already watched a good bit of it. I open that bad boy up and what is inside? Not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR discs. How can you beat that for a price for about $16? You can't is how. You get all nine episodes uncensored, deleted scenes, the reunion special, tips from The Situation and Snooki which I'm sure might alter your life, Before the Shore, and the makeover of Michael Cera into a guido. If anyone is interested in a Jersey Shore DVD viewing party, you know I'm easy to convince for that.
It's time for a movie review. I've been slacking lately, but we're here with a chick flick for anyone that cares. The Time Traveler's Wife. I didn't even know much about this movie, but figured I'd give it a try when Whip rented it. First off, I'll start by saying it's a bit of a confusing movie. After a while things start to tie in. I'm sure it didn't help that I was half asleep and nodding off in some parts, but that shouldn't stop you from watching. By the end of the movie, you're going to get into it quite a bit and it's going to grow on you. If you're a wuss during these types of movies, you may even shed a tear or two, who knows. It's that kind of deal, but a pretty good movie minus the confusing parts. The main people in this are Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana. They both play their parts well, although McAdams' is a bit easier to play in my opinion. Funny thing on her IMDB, it says "formerly a vegetarian". Why even put that? Like she beat a disease or something? On druggies, do they put in their info, "formerly a crackhead"? Nope. IMDB gave this one a 7.2 out of 10. I'm going to give it.. let me think for a second.. I'll go with 6.7 time travels out of 10. It's a good movie, but I doubt it's one that I'd watch a lot of times over and over.
More TV you ask? Here's one I will recommend if anyone hasn't seen. It's been on for two weeks now. Undercover Boss on CBS, 9:00 on Sunday nights. The basic storyline of the show has a big wig for a company that goes undercover, works with the common folk and to see how their company really operates. The first two weeks have been on 7-11 and White Castle. They see both the bad and good as people give their honest opinions on how they think the company is treating them, what opportunities they have, and the whole works. As the big shot get to know these people over a short period of time, the ending is what makes the show. He brings these people in to speak with them. These people have no idea why they are being driven to some corporate office. When they are sitting there waiting, the big shot comes in dressed in his suit and all of that instead of the work clothes they saw them in recently. As he breaks down the reason he was there, he tells how he connected to them and due to their struggles or what they have been good at, he will usually hook them up somehow with a bigger job opportunity, money for their families, or a charity fund under their name. It doesn't sound like much, but you get sucked into the stories and the end will have the weak at heart getting emotionally possibly. Check it out, you may enjoy it.
For anyone big into Twitter, you've probably noticed that a thing called Chatroulette is gaining some steam in a lot of posts. Yes, I realize I plug Twitter way too much, but I'm ate up with it, I can't help it, so that's what you get. Has anyone tried this yet? It's not as good as it seems, but can be a good time killer. I'll let Wiki describe what this thing really is all about: "Chatroulette is a website which pairs random strangers for webcam-based conversations. Visitors to the website randomly begin an online stranger chat (video and text) with another visitor. At any point, either user may leave the current chat and initiate another random connection." You see some characters on here for sure. The 'next' feature is what makes it interesting. If you don't like it, move on to the next bum. I don't see it as something that a lot would be into, but like I said, it's a good time killer if nothing else. That's why we're online anyways, right? Being bums and killing time.
I now want to jump into a Top 10 list of sorts. I've done these things a bit in the past to list a few, but don't think I've listed ten at once. What am I going to list this week? I present to you, 10 Random Things I Dislike:
1. Slow drivers in the snow.
2. Grown women who argue over pointless things and hold grudges forever. Guys? If they have a problem, they hash it out, and the next day they're boys again. It's simple. Girls, they get all evil on each other.
3. Red lipstick.
4. Drunk drivers.
5. Jimmy Buffett. I really don't know much on this guy, but I never really understood why he's as big as he is. He doesn't do a thing for me personally.
6. Rednecks in big trucks who sit side by side with their boyfriend/girlfriend as they go down the road, half making out the entire time.
7. Speaking of all over, another dislike would be people who are all over each other in public.
8. People who cry and whine nonstop on their Facebook status updates. Come on, your life can't be THAT miserable. If it is, you don't have to let the rest of us know every 3 seconds. Post some good things every now and then. You can post some whiny things, but don't go overboard.
10. Sticks in sunflower seeds. If you're a fan of these, you know what I mean. You get a big handful and crank it in your mouth and you find a stick. It doesn't happen a lot, but does every now and then. What I'm talking about is the sticks or bark as I like to refer it, as gets jumbled into the mix. Bad times, as are rotten sunflower seeds when you get a hold of one of those.
Last Friday I'm going to post how I ripped up the food like no other. I wake up for work and we just had teacher meetings that day, so it was easy. I didn't have to leave quite as early, so that's always good. At the house, at 7:00 in the morning I had a pancake, bacon, and orange juice. At 9:00, our cook at work who is the best at any school in the county, bar none has me set up with a plate-full of food. Biscuits and gravy, cinnamon roll, tater tots, and chocolate milk. I had just ate a few hours ago, but I can't pass up her food, it's legit. At 12:30, I made a stop to D&P, a local joint that booms the business. There I got a cheeseburger, antipasta salad, and a grape pop. The grape pop seemed to hit the spot. At 6:00 that night, it was time to take my parents out to the Wonder Bar. There I started out with some crushed red pepper garlic bread combo, a salad with raspberry vinagrette, a filet that was out of this world, a side of spaghetti, and a bunch of tea. For some reason, I didn't eat again till 3 in the morning. Then I had a bowl of Cheerios and a glass of orange juice. 4:30 in the morning rolls around and I'm going through handfuls of honey roasted peanuts. Around 5:00, I finally tap out to bed. I felt like a 155-pound fat boy that day, but it was good stuff. As I always say, just go to the gym and work it all off, that's my theory.
Speaking of working out, it's time to bore some with new supplement talk. Others are wanting to hear this though, so there's a little for everyone. I like to switch things up, so that's what I did this week. Gold Card Week, so I had to load up. I'm taking a few weeks off from Jack3d, which is an awesome supplement. In its place, I'm going with MuscleTech's noNO Hardcore x9 tablets. These are pretty nice and seem to work, but I still prefer Jack3d or No-Xplode over that. Protein I'm still rocking the Muscle Milk or course, great taste, easy to mix, and loaded with all you need. On the creatine side of things, I'm still sticking with the Amplified Creatine 189 tabs, a big fan of those. Two newer things added to the latest purchase. One is an amino acid powder mix called RapidDrive BCAA 5000. I have fruit punch and the taste is pretty good. Back to the Jack3d, which is made by USPlabs, I went with a newer product they recently put on the market. It's called Anabolic Pump and is a muscle builder/fat burner that you take one tablet 15 minutes before a carb containing meal. We'll see how it goes, I just like switching stuff up. I love the winter as all know, but I am excited this week that it starts warming up to get some outside runs in. Treadmills, ugh. I still get on the tread, but it's not the same to me.
March is a busy month for me, so I should be able to ramble off some blog topics over that time. Next weekend, I make my first NBA trip of the season. Yes, I know this is way late for me and I should've already been to a few this year, my fault. Anyways it'll be off to Cleveland as we roll 8 deep to see my Celtics get punished by LeBron. That's a trip I always love doing. The week after that? We're off to Ohio again, this time to Dayton. I've never been to Dayton, but this one is an MMA trip to see one of our boys fight for a title. The following week? The afternoon will feature the A#BL fantasy baseball draft that features 20 teams (or is it 18?) and then the night will be huge. For the dork I am, it's WrestleMania 26! I'm not missing that for anything and we'll have a ton of people watching.
I might as well review a few CDs, why not?
B.G.: Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood. This is a very good one in my opinion. If you like some harder grimey rap, this is for you. I've always thought B.G. has been underrated and doesn't get the respect due. Maybe it's because for the most part, he hasn't jumped into the high level of mainstream and stays to his style all along. My Hood was one of my favorite songs of 2009, so that gets a thumbs up. Others to check out? Ya Heard Me featuring Juvenile, Lil Wayne, and Trey Songz. I Hustle with Young Jeezy. Back To The Money with Magnolia Chop. Find this one if you can.
Fozzy: Chasing The Grail. A lot are probably wondering, who is Fozzy? That is Chris Jericho's band. Yes, Chris Jericho the wrestler, one of my favorites. His first album wasn't anything special in my mind. This isn't rap either, it's a rare non-rap review I'm doing. This one is much better than his first edition. The main song on this one is Martyr No More, good stuff. Others to load up on are New Day's Dawn, Let The Madness Begin, and Grail. Maybe I'm biased since it's Jericho, but I like this album.
Bird's Dirty of the Week: We're going with one of our oldest girls in a long time. We're branching out and going to Panama City for this 37 year old. We also get this submission coming to us from Kristen in Florida. She hasn't sent in a submission in a while, so she was due. What does she say on this? "i think we found you a ho though..lol" "but this girl's got some pics in her album that'll seal it.." "page 2's good stuff" "you see her age? not bad i aint hatin on her...just fits the bill". I figure some can't see these, but make sure you log in if you have an account over there to see the pics. Otherwise, it'll say private. Just saying. http://www.myspace.com/433660669
Bird's Video Moment of the Week: I caught this on Rob Dyrdek's Twitter. I'm not a skater dude, but I kinda like watching some of that stuff from time to time. This one I've never seen before. Daniel Pelletier, 25 surgeries and paralyzed from the waist down. This kid is a paraplegic and rocks it out. Some impressive stuff he's doing, check him out:
3 Quick Thangs:
1. It looks like this week won't have any blizzards like we've had for a while now. Temperatures into the high 50s? Dang. That's heat wave style. One day last week, I was shoveling snow at 2:30 in the morning. Yeah, weird hours around our house. The parents would do their thing and then I'd shovel late at night or late in the afternoon and it'd cycle over. Team work, that's how it goes. 1986 Celtics style.
2. Girl Scouts Cookies are out! This is a good time of year for junk food fans. I've already started on the greatest of these cookies, Samoas. I always stock up with boxes upon boxes of these things to last me for a while. We've all ate an entire box of GSCs in one sitting, don't lie and say you haven't. I gotta admit, the past two days I've had a box each day. That's not good.
3. I don't get McDonald's stuff a whole lot, but I was craving the other day on the way home from work. I knew I wouldn't be eating for a while on that particular night, so I needed something to hold me over. Why not some nuggets? I've seen all the commercials on the sweet chili sauce. It's more like a glaze to me than a sauce. It's ok, nothing I'd be jumping for joy over. I prefer the BBQ sauce there. Final rating of the sweet chili sauce? 6 out of 10.
