August 30, 2008

- Lucas and I had a blast fishing today. We're going back early tomorrow morning to try and get a good spot.
- I announced my first basketball game for the Gryphons tonight, an exhibition game vs East Tennessee State from the NCAA. It went well, no accidental 'Warriors' mistakes. 2 more games tomorrow.
- Watching season 6 of Curb Your Enthusiasm...I had forgotten how laugh-out-loud funny it is.
- I'm getting a LOT of hits on the blogs, and I'm wondering who is reading this, and how you found it. Email me at, I'd love to hear how you came across the blogs.

- I watched Gordon Ramsay on The Tonight Show last night. Looking forward to his new show starting next week. He told this story about falling off a cliff in Iceland last month, I had heard nothing about it.
- Speaking of Gordon Ramsay, this may be the funniest thing I've ever seen in my life, parody videos of him as an 8-year-old:
Part 1 Part 2
- Big Brother was good. I'm glad Michelle is gone, and as soon as Keesha won HoH, the Ollie sulking began....too funny. He knew he was gone unless he won the veto.
- Almost 1,000 views on my blogger profile now. Who is reading this?

August 28, 2008

- Just found out that Michael Phelps is hosting the season premiere of SNL . That should be interesting.
- Speaking of the Olympics, I missed Kerri Walsh and Misty May on David Letterman last night. Boo.
- I'm enjoying 'Handlebars' by the Flobots more and more every day.
- I know it's old, but I saw the clip again of Miss Teen South Carolina flubbing her answer...and it makes me laugh and cringe every single time. Here is a funny version of it with subtitles.
- I rarely go to the movies anymore, unless I'm taking Lucas to see something, but I went to see The Dark Knight....TWICE. It was honestly one of the best movies I've ever seen, and Heath Ledger blew me away...and I was very very skeptical from all of the hype, and NOT a Heath Ledger fan at all.

August 26, 2008

- Just finished watching Big Brother. Dan is a good player, I hope he wins. But if he is ok with breaking his deal with Ollie, why not just put Ollie on the block? Now he's pissed off two potential jury members instead of just one.
- Lucas is enjoying his day camp at Bingemans, but man is he ever exhausted when he gets home.

- She was a deceptive, manipulative liar who would say anything to get you to believe what she wanted you to believe, and didn't care who she hurt in the process. I'm so glad she's gone. (Obviously, I'm talking about April from Big Brother 10...who else could I possibly be talking about?)
More Big Brother thoughts:
- I think Jerry is a dirty old man. And why can't he wear sleeves? Does he think we want to see his 75-year old guns? Which way to the beach, Jerry?
- Renny seems like she would be a Saturday Night Live character...played by Christopher Walken.
- Come to think of it, I think Walken could do Michelle's voice too.
- Dan looks like Danny Michel.
- Ollie has an abnormally large forehead/head. He looks like the Great Gazoo from The Flintstones. See for yourself.
- I got ID'ed on my way into the casino the other day. The guy said "How old are you?" and I said "35", and he said, "No, old are you?". Awesome.
- Jenn and I had a blast at Ribfest on Sunday. But man, was it hot!
- Lucas' party was awesome, and he won 3 gingerbread medals!
- The late night Busker Show = so much drama. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. Wow.

- I'm really enjoying listening to Audioslave. Wish I would have discovered them sooner.
- The Late night Busker show should be fun tonight.
- 700 hits and counting...people reading from in Texas and California. This blogging thing is fun.
- 18 medals overall going into the final day. Pretty good considering it took 5 days to win the first one.
- I hate humidity.

- Lucas is seven years old today. How exciting! I can't believe he's seven already. His Olympic party tomorrow should be fun. He is performing at the Busker Carnival today as part of his busker camp, he's very excited.
- 2 more medals for Canada this morning. I'm bummed that the Olympics are ending.
- I'm listening to music again after two months. Forgot how much I liked WHFS in Baltimore.
- Josh Wolk is seriously the funniest man alive.

- 3 Silver medals for Canada since I wrote yesterday. Awesome.
- I honestly believe that any Olympic sport can be made better by being synchronized. Think about it...
- It sucks that Steve and Barry's went bankrupt and had to close all of their stores, but it was only a matter of time if nothing is over $8.98.
- Less than 2 weeks before I announce my first game for the Gryphons. 4 NCAA exhibition games in one weekend. Should be great. I'm hoping not to say 'Warriors' by accident!

- Today is Francesco's birthday and he's home from Montreal. I'm looking forward to seeing him for dinner tonight.
- The Olympics were awesome this weekend. Michael Phelps' 7th gold medal, where he won by one one-hundredth of a second was something that I will remember for the rest of my life. And Lucas and I watched Usain Bolt together as he broke the world record in the 100 meters.
- Lucas turns 7 on Friday, I can't believe how fast he's growing up!
- Winning the HPA Tournament on Saturday night was a highlight for me. I really like Doc Mike and enjoyed playing him heads up for 45 minutes. HPA means a little more to me than the other poker tournaments, so winning my fourth one was a lot of fun.
- Matt is back for a few days from BC, so that means I'm in for some good lunches for the next couple of days. SOS BBQ today and Jia Jia Lok tomorrow.
- We moved into our new office at work today, and I'm already unpacked...and loving my new office.
- I was going through some pictures on the weekend and found some great family pictures with my cousin Paul. Nice memories...I'm glad I stumbled across them because now I can keep them where I know they are, and look at them often.
- Here's hoping Canada can win more medals this week!

August 13, 2008

- Lucas is healing remarkably quickly from a cracked collarbone...what a trooper.
- Is it bad for me to like women's beach volleyball so much?
- Ethel's Patio is the best patio in town.
- If S.O.S. BBQ ever goes out of business, I don't know what I'll do.
- Michael Phelps is awesome.
- Fishing and golfing with Lucas a couple of weekends ago was pretty much the best weekend ever.
- I'm not really that interested in Big Brother this summer. Only watching it on and off. First time in a while.
- The Cousins BBQ we had last week at Rob's house was a lot of fun. Wow, did he ever cook a lot of meat!
- Looking forward to dinner at Yummyaki next week with Val, Dan, Rob, and Nadia.
