However, there was a bright spot(I mean besides coming home). Dan Clark was hired to speak to us in the final session, very impressive! (of course anyone with a joke or two and no ppt slides would have been impressive at that point) he as great, very thought provoking, I learned that I don't need to CHANGE, I just need to be more of who I already am! (I am sure many of you can't wait for that to happen) and I am going to be. Really I am. Dan's most poignant idea that really resonated with me was; Contrary to what we are constantly taught, we need to stop trying to think outside the box, because, just maybe .. . . ready? here it comes........ "what if the answers are inside the box" ya think about it. I know I am diving deep here for some of you but that's OK, hang with me.
Anyway that's enough of my rant, if I go on, I will saying something I probaly shouldn't and you will get to the end of this pontification and wonder why, you wasted your time reading this bunk. Well OK, you can do that now!
P.S. just a little side rant, if you are ever in the waiting room of the doctors office and have the urge to pick up your cell phone and call your husband to tell him about the guy that backed into you in the parking lot, you may want to step outside like ALL the other patients were doing. Because, I and everyone else in that room now know the name(for privacy reason I won't give it here, but I do know it) of the man that backed into you, his address,(he lives in Provo, kinda up by my house), his insurance info(he's insured with Progressive, and again I won't post his account # as it was repeated 3 times, very slowly so I could right it down) and that he drives a 2000 Toyota Camry. I sure hope their neighbor Pete gets to look at it and let them know what it will take to get it fixed. Thank goodness the nurse called them back to a room and we could all still hear her as the went down the hall. Ya, I was a littler irritated because it was interupting my reading of my new Dan Clark book!!!!
shoooo, I feel better! don't you?

I had bloggers cramp once before and even though it may not look like it, I got over it. Now hold on, don't get upset or worry for me. Just give me some time and a few business trips, I will be good to go. (well as good as I can be, don't get too excited, it's not like I am suddenly going to start writing anything worthwhile)
Just remember; You get what you pay for!! I know I know, I owe you.. . . .
Well I guess if you have to have cramps, bloggers cramp is better than some of the other cramps out there. See, I am kind of a "cup half full" guy. Just not too sure what it's half full of??
Forgive me for not having a visually stunning graphic or picture in this post.(I know you were expecting one) It's really difficult to find an appropriate graphically representation of cramps.
So in closing, I have a question for YOU, yes, YOU the anonymous reader of this drivel;
What is your favorite topic of discussion on this high caliber, thought provoking, deep thinking, informative, & down right good blog? leave a commentt(see that little comment button down there, click on it).

Apparently Santa has had a rough year! you know, I wonder why he picked San Jose, do you think he has a winter house there? I knew house prices were crazy in California but I mean, Santa on the street! it's quite concerning.

Sometimes, even as a 4 year old who has been to Disneyland a gazillion times, you need to take some time and read the map. And, Sometimes all those @$## grown ups take all the seats on the bench so you just have to plop down in the middle of the sidewalk, they'll all walk around you. Untill the old lady with the motorized cart comes by and is paying more attention to the Mickey Jack o lantern than where she is going! Don't worry he's alright. you would be able to see any of the tire marks on his face in a couple of weeks.

So I am told that I always have to get the last word in.........(probably because I am always right).. but, if that were the case I would like blogging more than I do. When you blog, you always get the last word in cause no one can add to your post. Sure, you can comment but, 90% of the people that read your blog don't dare or care to comment. so why do people not like to share comments?
Just like the picture, sometimes we have to look up to see the obvious....
Oh, I had a dear dear friend share this with me, you can find out what type of bra you are
I am a sleek black bra. I guess it's cause I am soo supportive. I am soo glad I found out, I have been wondering what type of bra I am for sometime.
Don't you wish this all made sense? well, just be thankful that it doesn't make scents......cause, as you can imagine, that would NOT be good.
and now for the quote of the day:
"I really didn't say everything I said."
Friday, September 14, 2007
I would share my "friend" story of the day but it's too early, people aren't too friendly in the morning. Especially the security screeners(I am gonna be sore for a few days).
P.S. Make it a great day!

He already worked out so he could go get a fattening dinner, I am sure you, like I, really care. I won't even bore you with the story of my kickboxer "friend" in the weight room or my middle eastern oil tycoon "friend" from the sauna(and YES everyone was clothed! you know you were thinking of some smart comment! Sick, just sick!) or my "I need a friend" "friend" at the chicken quasadilla bar in the concierge lounge... Let's just enjoy the lovely Houston sunset shall we? We shall! Look at that, I am even talking to myself in my blog.... That's what too much traveling will do to you.
P.S. How do you spell quasadilla?

P.S. I keep getting asked why I don't comment on other peoples blogs. Well, just spend some time reading MY blog...........Would you really want some one that writes this CRAP commenting on your blog? I mean really, would you? it's not like I even passed an English class for pete's sake.

Not to shabby for a $6 ticket. It helps that the Rangers are terrible this year and it's a Tuesday night. Wow exciting huh!!!!! maybe I just need a better background for my blog........ it would be way cool is you could customize the background on your blog, someone should look into it. I will even let them have credit for the idea.

So I thought I would share my lunch with you. Can you guess where I am? The amazing part is that I have low cholesterol..... but, as you know, I am not low on FAT!!!I am gonna have to go run like 50 miles to work this off. Oh, did I mention that this was my second In-N-Out in two days.... this is one of the few benefits of traveling so much, Yes I said FEW!
For those of you that are not "up to speed" on In-N-Out and you are wondering what the ? is that next to my burger. That is an order of fries animal style. Yes, they are fat free! kinda like me. I would like to see Chadders do that!!

Since I am battling through my bloggers block, I would like to take a moment for a little rant. indulge me here. Why is it soooo d@$# difficult to figure out how to handle a roundabout? Come on folks it's a "Yield" sign not a "Stop" sign. That's the beauty of a roundabout, if no one is coming you don't have to stop. And, Yes we are all brothers and sisters but, that doesn't mean that we can't lay on the horn when you choose to STOP at a roundabout. (see I told you it would be short)
Now, if there are any of you reading this that I have offended, well our friends in Urbandale Iowa have graciously provided you with intstructions on using a roundabout see the following url
If you find that after reading the How To guide from Urbandale, that you are still a bit confused on the proper proceedure for addressing roundabout, might I suggest you MOVE to Urbandale! They can give you some hands on training.

Looking at the picture you can see that, even as a baby, I sat around a lot with my finger up my nose, it stimulates the thought process, kinda like poking a sleeping cat. alas, it's not working, still blocked up! maybe I should poke harder, but it took about 5 minutes to stop the last nose bleed.
Aren't you glad you just wasted 3 minutes reading my worthless muttering, hey, at least you saw a cute picture..... ya gotta give me that one.
If only I were a vampire! . . . . . .

Having too much body hair is akin to having too little head hair, says Stan Williams, fashion and grooming director of Maxim magazine. "A lot of guys are concerned about it, but it's not something you really talk about."
So let's talk about it.......... As you can see, I have done some investigating on the topic and oh boy, I am not sure how to proceed with this one, I mean, I try to have a family friendly blog and this one is a bit edgey, careful here, I don't want to go over that edge.
Let me start by sharing some quotes:
"Waxing makes up 35% to 40% of the business at Joq Day Spa for Men in Atlanta. "Men are just becoming a lot more conscious of what their body looks like," spa director Christopher Keever says. "They realize you don't need to go around looking like the missing link."
Missing link? get a little fur on your back and all the sudden you are the missing link?
"Even cowboys get the back-hair blues. At Napoleon's for Men, a 2-year-old hot-shave-and-haircut hangout in Boise, guys who are no strangers to reins and rifles will occasionally call and ask whether waxing hurts. "I say, 'You can handle it,' " receptionist Dayna Ross says."
Well Hello, if the cowboys are doing it, we all should. I mean, a guy that sits on a 2,000lb agitated bull holding on with one hand, has a wad of chew in his mouth, a pair of wranglers that are 2 sizes too small, and a old sweaty hat, is really someone that I am going to take personal grooming tips from.
Here's the one that sums it up:
Body hair "makes you a man. It's a maturity thing," says Bates College senior Chris Robinson, 21. "I bet it would be ridiculously painful" to take off. But he could be persuaded: "If a girl asked me, yeah, I would do it."
and that's pretty much it, if your girl asked you to do it you would!!!! So I called for my appointment and was explained my "options" like the SBC and oh man....... we're at the edge now so I will stop there.
NO, I didn't make and appointment, even though I know some of you wished I had. I find a subtle comfort in my fur.

As we were up in the mountains and the "facilities" were a bit unsavory, I decided to sneak away for a moment to alleviate some pressure(ya, those of you that were there didn't notice huh?). Oh boy! that was a relief!! as I was struggling with a zipper, I noticed, and snapped a picture of the following scene across the clearing:
These two little guys were having it out(it so reminded me of my youth). The shocking thing is, I hadn't realized that bears have evolved to walk on their hind legs, I was impressed, until I realized it was to midgets(I mean short people) in tiny little bear suits. If you look closely, you can see the zipper on the one on the tree side. bit of a let down really.
I also learned that bears really do "crap in the woods" but that's another blog entry...........

Now, I have always heard that you should buy a car that resembles the owner, however if I had done that, I would have ended up with something like the picture below.......... quite unnerving.
Come on, I have a little self dignity left . . . . . .

Yes, I really do know this fine looking specimen, but I am afraid he's taken and I think it's pretty obvious why!!!! I mean he's got metals......(I wonder what they are for?)

So I have been told that I have been tagged. Ya well, tell me something new. I get tagged all the time! Tag's are over used. People tag other people all the time. sometimes those tag's can be pretty misleading or biased. anyway, I digress....... Someone(no idea who) want's me to list 7 facts about myself. are you sure? just remember........ this was asked for...
In no particular order:
1. I went topless while on the beach in Cancun.
2. I have had a gun pulled on me. (surprise surprise)
3. I have been jumped by 4 guys and had my nose shattered. (yep)
4. I don't like typing things about myself on the Internet. (really really!)
5. I have been to 11 countries outside of the U.S.(and only offended the locals in 6 of them)
6. I have a birthmark on my inner thigh. (No, I won't show you)
7. I have had plastic surgery, twice. (don't you wish you knew where?)
OK wasn't that fun, do you really feel like you know me better now? really do you?

I am very overwrought when thinking of the health of my devoted readers. What I am talking about is high cholesterol!! Yes, it's a serious condition that many fail to address. I even know some people who are on medication and yet their cholesterol remains high. I worry for those individuals so I thought I would offer some assistance to each of you take a look and thank me later:

Another lesson I have learned is: Use pictures! people like to be visually surprised, (well some people do). Not to mention a picture says a 1,000 words and I am not about to type that many. (nor would you want me to)
The final lesson, every one's a critic! Opinions are like bums, everyone has one and most of them are full of crap! sorry, I had to throw it out there. But this also feeds into the reason why I like blogs, I mean people will even critique the gibberish I write. I love it. What a country!!
So for today's visually stunning optical pleasing array of pixels, I got one that may take you a moment to figure out(well some of you, others will get it right away and I won't comment on those who do) Since we are sports fans at our house and it's baseball time, here ya go:
P.S. I almost forgot to mention that results of the poll. The most popular name was MIKE. Much to the chagrin of many of my female readers(and THANK YOU for reading), it edged out Edward and I know there are many who feel very passionate about the name Edward, to the point that it's almost discommoding.

I must say some people take this blogging thing a bit too serious, like any of this drivel that people write in their blogs is going to affect your life or anything. Anyway back to the Moon Barking.... hey, did you hear, they found evidence of water on Mars, ya I got one of the exclusive pictures so I thought I would post it here. thank me later...
