Random thoughts, a rant and a survey stolen from Ray

I got home at 6:30 am this morning from my trip to Kentucky. This update will just be full of random thoughts and comments on the events of the past few days.

For some reason, my grandma and I discussed my eating habits before I left for Kentucky. We came to the conclusion that 95% of the time my lunch and supper consists of 5 things: cheeseburgers, meatloaf, tacos, pizza and steak. The only side items that go with those are either: french fries, mashed potatoes, broccoli and corn. My grandma can’t understand how I can eat two meals a day everyday out of just those 5 options. I don’t have any problems with it.

Anyway, I left for Kentucky on Tuesday afternoon so I could watch The Shield with Ian that night. Great episode. I love the interaction between Mackey and Kavanaugh. Just one smartass comment after another to get under each other’s skin. The ending of the show had me wanting to see the next episode right away.

James Christopher is getting bigger and bigger. He is definitely a hand full. There is nothing cuter than when he just looks at you and gives a big smile. It melts away anger by the pounds I tell ya.

I was hungry after The Shield replay ended so I drove up to McDonald’s to get a double quarter pounder meal. While I was waiting in the drive thru line, a car stops next to the passenger side of my car and starts blaring on the horn. I look over to see what the problem is and there is a hairy male ass hanging out the back window. I should have taken a cue from that and left. Instead I got the food. Big mistake. Without going into too much detail, let’s just say that I can’t eat food if there isn’t a bathroom in close proximity to me. My grandma tells me all the time that I need to go to a doctor and find out what is bothering my stomach. My reply is “nothing that Pepto Bismol can’t fix.” I had to make a run to the gas station to buy some after I finished eating. I usually have an emergency bottle in the storage bin of my car door but it froze solid over the course of the week with the temperature dropping down to zero. Anyway, if anyone out there knows anyone with stroke in the Pepto Bismol corporation, tell them that I would be open to being a spokesman for their wonderful product.

I watched some episodes of That 70’s Show on FX that night. All I can say is that Laura Prepon who plays Donna makes that show worth watching. I just finished watching an episode before typing this up and it almost made me cry. She had went from beautiful mesmerizing red hair to being a blonde. That is like being on “Who Wants To Be A Millionare” and missing the $100,000 question. You leave with $25,000 which is still nice but it would have been better to walk away with the $50,000 you had.

Ian gave me the autographed Big Van Vader figures that he got from West Virginia for me and Chris. I used to be such a huge fan of Vader. I will always fondly remember the interview on WCW Saturday night when he is listing the names of wrestlers that he had injured and he just was giddy as a school girl when he got to Nikita Koloff’s name. Chris and I have always wondered why he was so damn happy about Koloff while he was emotionless while naming off Ron Simmons and Sting and the others.

Joey came out and watched some of American Idol with Ian and me. It was the episode where all the 12 guys sang from I guess Wednesday night or something. We got into a discussion about looks vs. talent. Ian told Joey that having the looks is half the battle. I disagreed. It is 75% of the battle in all walks of life. Look at wrestling for example. Steroids are what is important. You don’t have to have talent, skill, charisma, personality or anything. Put a needle in your ass and build up some muscles and all of a sudden you have a future. Sadly for a lot of people, it doesn’t bother them that it makes them a fraud. Steroids are for people who are injured and banged up and need to heal. They aren’t for putting a pretty bow on the package to hide all the flaws but that is what they have become. I guess if those people can stand looking at themselves in the mirror and knowing that they aren’t succeeding or failing on their own merit, more power to them. I’m sure that Barry Bonds, McGwire, Sosa etc don’t lose much sleep when they look at their home run totals. Take a survey sometime among women and ask them if they would rather date the smart charismatic overweight average or below average looking guy or a dumb as a box of rocks roidbot that has nothing going for him but his looks. I can guarantee that the looks win the majority of the time. It is just the facts of life. Hell it may even be more than 75% of the battle. It may be 90%.

Last night was the Gretchen Wilson concert. What an awesome show. Blaine Larsen and Van Zant were the opening acts. Van Zant was very good. They were also very loud. My ears were ringing when they got done. We had great seats. 3rd row right at the edge of the stage so we had a great view all night. Gretchen put on a very entertaining show. Mickie, Ian, Patti and me just had a great time. We had to rush back to Louisville after the concert because Mickie and Ian had to leave to go to Chikara. I can’t believe that JJ Dillon is going to be there. It would have been fun to meet him since Candido always called me JJ Dillon but if I’m not going to IWA shows, I am not going to drive across the country to go to Chikara.

I read the IWA message board after waking up today. A few people left memories of my performances in the past and wished me well. That made me feel good. I will admit that I’ve given a lot of thought to what it would take to get me to come back to wrestling. Hell, it has been my life for the past 8 years. I’d have to say that there are 3 things that could get me to come back full time. 2 of them have little to no chance of happening so basically there is one thing that would get me to come back full time. I can think of about a dozen things that could get me to come back for a one time only deal. None of them have a great likelihood of happening either. So the three or four of you out there that would like to see a return, don’t hold your breath.

Anyway, I am exhausted since I didn’t sleep much so I could sleep tonight. Supper is on the table….meatloaf and I can’t let that sit too long.

Until next time…here is a survey stolen from Ray:

I have edited out some of the questions to shorten the lenght of this update.

2. The sexiest item of clothing you own?
Since it would be clothing on me, I don’t think anyone would call it sexy.

5. How much Japanese do you know?

6. Do you look good in yellow?
I don’t look good in anything but since Morris Redskins’ colors are maroon, gold and white, I own a lot of clothes that have yellow/gold in them.

7. Do you sing?
I just recently took up karoake…Frank Sinatra songs. I sing along to the radio as well.

8. Ever danced in front of a crowd?
The three weddings I went to with Shaina: Corporal’s, Chris’ and Mark’s (not Hero and Wolf but my childhood friends Finch and Watson)

11. Least favorite color?
Joliet Catholic’s brown & white and Green Bay’s gold and green

12. Ever had Dippin’ Dots?
Those things are great.

15. Do you believe in Big Foot?
It was a good monster truck in its day.

16. Ever been to a palm reader?
I don’t have to pay someone to tell me that my life sucks and will continue to do so

19. Did you have a good weekend?
Weekend is about to start. I don’t see much potential but I’ve been wrong before. I’ve had a good weekend before in the past so perhaps this one can be as well.

20. What are you thinking about right now?
How crappy this weekend is going to be irregardless of the crap I said in the question above.

21. Have you ever had a black eye?
nope they are brown.

22. How is today going for you?
Got in from Kentucky this morning and slept. I watched tv. I ate. Usual day.

23. Any plans for tonight?
Sleep. There is no karaoke at the VFW so I’ll stay home and go to bed.

28. Current disappointment?
I have some many disappointments and regrets that it is hard to keep tabs on what is current

29. Do you have an air freshener in your car?
Darth Vader. It is old and no long an “air freshener” per se…it’s just for show.

33. Does anything hurt on your body right now?

34. What city was your last taxi cab ride in?
Louisville. Shaina and I took a limo to the Derby Dinner Playhouse and then to the Hilton in downtown Louisville for our second anniversary and needed to take a taxi back to our apartment from the hotel.

35. Last alcoholic drink you had?
2 sips of champagne on that night. I don’t believe I have ever tasted anything that gross in my life.

36. If someone you hated died, would you laugh and spit on their grave?
I would not go to his wake. I would not go to his funeral. I would not go to his grave. I would go back to IWA though.

37. What were you doing last night at 9:00?
At the Gretchen Wilson/Van Zant/Blaine Larsen Redneck Revolution Tour concert.

40. Do you exercise as much as you should?
No. Why bother? We are all going to die someday anyway. Might as well do it while being fat and lazy.

42. Would you give your bf/gf a second chance if they cheated on you?
The only second chance she would have is a second chance to dodge the bullet if the first one missed.
