my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

south carolina girls are smart

this is the video from the teen pageant that i wrote about earlier. i think the thing takes a whole new meaning when you get to watch it instead of just listening to it.

she must be HELLA hot to be that dumb.

send posts and pix from my fone

i had this ability when i was using google for my blog but lost it when i switched to wordpress. anyway…expect more useless filler now that i can post from my aging treo 650 again.

morrissey will not reunite the smiths

thank goodness. most recent comeback attempts by bands have sucked. some people even pan his post-smiths solo albums, although i thought they were good. some of these reunited bands also are probably running out of money so they schedule some reunion tour to get a last round of financing before they all croak. it’s the wrong choice because it cheapens their whole image.

side note: i wonder if andy rourke (pictured above, far left) has any kids. hard to imagine any seeds surviving those tight jeans. it’s male cameltoe.

here’s the story.

stinky links

poor marcos and his stinkyness. mom always thinks his diaper is full but it’s only full of air.

happy weekend!

the back of paris hilton’s knee

why is this guy trying to get a picture of the back of her knee?

i can’t even imagine having to fight photographers all the time when i’m out in public. i would probably move to iceland or something where no one would want to hang out in front of my house just waiting for me to have a nipple slip, or some random skin showing. as it stands now, i would show my nipple to anyone who asked.

the whole michael vick thing

i can’t help but catch some of that michael vick crap just because it’s all over espn. the guy’s a thug and his friends already ratted him out for having illegal dogfights at his house. the dogs were trained to fight and if they were injured, he would euthanize them by drowning them or putting them to sleep. the entire thing is pretty sick.

this is what jamie foxx, the actor, had to say about it:

“It’s a cultural thing, I think. Most brothers didn’t know that, you know. I used to see dogs fighting in the neighborhood all the time. I didn’t know that was Fed time. So, Mike probably just didn’t read his handbook on what not to do as a black star. I know that cruelty to animals is bad, but sometimes people shoot people and kill people and don’t get time. I think in this situation,he really didn’t know the extent of it, so I always give him the benefit of the doubt.”

so i think jamie foxx is saying that if your culture allows it, then it should be given the benefit of the doubt. splendid justification technique there buddy. you must have gone to law school at santa clara university. just kidding.

this cartoon says it best:

these gangstas are tuff!

note – maybe don’t take your tough gangsta picture at home where your mom has vines on the curtain rods and some fans on the wall. they’re probably from the mean streets of danville.

what a difference!

busy with life links

i can’t think of a time in my life where i’ve had more stuff going on personally or professionally. it’s exciting in a way, but i’m looking forward to sleeping in on a weekend day and maybe cutting out a day of work to watch a giants game with my daughter or something. here’s a couple websites to keep you busy:

yummy mcdonalds french fries

at my curent job of about 9 months, we’re near a mcdonalds so i’ve eaten there a couple times for lunch. it’s not as appealing as it was when i was 18 and working at aimnet with minh long. i think we had mcdonalds at least 5 times a week. i remember i’d usually try and wolf the fries down in the car on the way back to work because they only have about a 6-minute shelf life before they get cold and nasty.

when i would vacuum out my car every few weeks, i would inevitably find some remnants of mcdonald’s fries and they would look at least half-eatable. if i were to sneak one of these week-old, under-chair fries into someone’s fresh batch at a mcdonalds when they weren’t looking, they wouldn’t be able to pick this one out. i think all my three readers know what i’m talking about.
