    Shit that I saw today that just bugged me for some reason. I guess I was just having one of those days:

    Where did the "style" of bullet holes originate from? What's so dam stylish about it, every time I see a car with them I get the urge to tell the driver "I can put some real ones on there free of charge.

    Saw an El Camino with racing pin stripes. WTF :mad:

    Also saw an Accord with pin stripes, wish I had remembered I had my camera under my seat, would've taken a pic. 2 stripes going down the center of the car that looked like they were painted on with flat wall paint.

    Had this Acura Vigor that tried to race me. Pulled up next to me at a stop light, all 4 passengers looking and smiling at me, light turns green asshole took off as if we were supposed to be racing, so I purposely drive 10 miles under the speed limit so they fuvker would get lost, but nooooo. dummy slowed down till I caught up, as soon as we were about even, he beeped his horn once then takes off again. (shakes head) no wonder we have such a bad name.

    Went to finish up my last season of my Franchise in Madden 07 before I opened up 08. Game 6 of the season, I'm faced off against the Cardinals whose record was almost as good as mine so far, (me 5-0, them 4-1). So every season my team, (the Falcons) is ranked #1 in defense, #1 in stopping the run, #1 in pass defense, and usually in the top 5 in offense, a fact that I take great pride in. At the start of the game, I checked my weekly gameplan as I always do, supposedly, they had acquired some great DE 's and OLB's this season that were supposed to stop my running game, didn't happen (Dunn ranned for 289 yards and 4 TD's) and supposedly their new HB was supposed to be a great threat. So I set a goal for myself " they will not cross the 50 yard line all game".

    SO 1st half ends their total offensive yards was -28 never even got passed their own 35. 2nd half goes on , comes to 1:16 left in the 4th quarter score is 38-0 Falcons. I kicked off, stop their return at their 15. 1st down, pushed them back 3 yards, 2nd down pushed them back 5 yards. So it's 3rd and 18, I go to select a defensive play, looked at what type of formation they had, 1WR, 1 TE, 3 RB's, so I'm thinking ok they've admitted defeat, and they're just gonna run the ball to run out the clock. so I went with a fire blitz. They hit a sweet PA witch caught me with my pants down, chased down their WR and managed to catch him right at the 48.

    "Thank Goodness" I said to myself. But I'm still screwed cause they can cross the 50 w/o getting the 1st. So 1st down, I dropped the interception, 2nd down my FS swats the ball out of the air as I was going for the pick. so up pops 3rd and 10. Bastards hit me with a screen that got them 3 yards, NOw I'm pissed caused they passed mid field after all fucking game. So fucked the sportsmanship and just running out the clock I'm gonna score some more. Punt went out of bounds at the 27 with 54 seconds left. 2 plays later I'm in the endzone. Their ball 1st down interception, then a 72 yard run by Dunn for another score. Left them with 1 second on the clock, kickoff and I managed to strip the ball from their return guy but was stopped at the 3 yard line as I tried to take it back. so 52-0 and they onlymanaged 68 total offensive yards.

    Why can't females be on time. My baby momma made me missed the opening scene of Rush Hour 3. I had to drive 44 miles to get to the theater, she only had to drive about 10, anyways I thought it was a very good movie possibly the best of all 3.

    My daughter finally sat up on her own tonight, was kinda funny watching her trying to keep her center of balance as she swyed from left to right. Also did her 1st crawl but I guess she didn't like crawl cause she stopped using her hands and went back to just using her legs to push up so it looks like she's low crawling. She'll be 5 months next Wednesday, the day I turn 24.


    As Porky Pig used to say "That's all folks". At least for today

    females are never on time. if you try to change that, the deficit between when they say they will show up and when they really do increases.

    I'm always 10 minutes early. It's my ex who's always late by at least an hour. The other ex is always late by 10 minutes, but that's not so bad. I 'over'plan how long it takes to get somewhere. But, that's just me, I guess.

    Apparently, you're not a madden fan, some people take these games very seriously. I was at gamestop at 11pm for the midnight release of 08

    i miss the OLD madden games, where you actually had to PUSH buttons to catch the ball instead of just running into it.

    SNES FTW

    Hmm, I'v never caught a ball by just running into it, once you take control of a reciever you have to press triangle to catch unless you took control right as he's making amove to the ball in which case the A.I is still controlling him.

    Usually no but like I said for some reason yesterday was one of those days where every little thing bugged me.


    On a side note nothing to rant about today, except the usual myspace request without a message, you would think I would be use to it by now. Oh yeah, my old area operations manager had the nerve to call me out of the blue telling me she wanted me to come back to work for her. Funny cause as soon as I saw her number on the caller ID I knew she wanted something. She never returned mycalls from 3 months ago when I resigned and they still owed me money but now she calls asking if I ever got my check from corporate and that she was gonna check into it.

    So I told her i'd think about it cause I was trying to get out of the hotel management business for a while and already had a job with Sprint because I'm finally thinking about going back to school to finish up the 33 credits I need to finish my Bachelor's but been putting off for the last 3 years, and mangement leaves no "me time". So she tries to sweeten me up talking about I can start off with all my benifits I left with, and within 6 months I can probably relocate to one of the regional positions I originally wanted. So i'm thinking to myself, this sounds real familar, this is the reason I left the first time, empty promises of promotion, that every time my time came was told well I can't let you go cause I need you to do this here andhelp out this property and blah blah. I said let me think about it, so she says well I'll give you till Friday of I don't hear from you I know you went with the other job. Later on, one of her other managers that I trained before I left called me saying he heard some news and was just calling to verify if it was true or if his boss was just talking out her ass. The story she told him was that I was coming back and that I called her begging for my job back. He said he almost laughed in her face cause it didn't sound like something I would do. But then he goes on to tell me that the reason she want's me back is that one of her other manager's that I trained was planning on quitting on her and she wanted to get me back to run 2 of her properties. No thank you.

    Besides that it was a pretty quiet day, actually had time to do that DIY writeup
