I don't know where I'm gonna go....

when the volcano blows!

that's right kids, I'm off to see Jimmy Buffett today and can. not. wait. It's been 7 years since I've been to a show and oddly, I'm not a lot different now than I was then. Of course, my life's turned upside down at least twice in those 7 years, but me? Nah...still the same. Obviously, there will be scads of flowered shirts, tacky costumes, and women that shouldn't be wearing bikini tops, but there will also be lots of beer, a couple grills, and a few women that should be wearing no tops. Yeah, I'm pretty excited. Plus, you just gotta love JB's music. And, yeah yeah...some of the songs that you hear over and over are a bit cheesy and get old because you've been hearing them for 30+ years, but there are some underlying tunes that really are very memorable and just well written. Or, it could be that I like to drink at the beach and a lot of the songs put me in that mindset. Eh, either's a good way to spend a hot afternoon.

speaking of flowered shirts and bikini tops.....(well, no bikini top for me, thankyouverymuch)

I'm on day 7 of Not Eating Like A 14 Year Old as per suggested by my oh-so Bi friend as he listened while I lamented not being able to quite rock my favourite pair of pants the other evening. By day 7, I really mean like Day 4 because over the weekend I couldn't resist bacon egg and cheese burgers for breakfast and homemade mac and cheese that afternoon. Hey, I'm a sucker for good cookin'. Growing up in the mountains and living now in the "valley," man I do like to eat. Especially if I'm fighting off a hangover. Besides, a salad is good. Really good if you do it up right. But, it's not a fucking meal. It just can't be. But, I physically feel better, other than being ravenous all the time, so I guess I'll stick it out for awhile. I'd hate to have a heart attack at 35 getting up to go to the fridge. Now if I was having wild monkey sex? Hell, when it's your time, it's your time.

Half day today and no plans for the rest of the weekend....I think this just might be Heaven.......

Let's try this again....

I want to break out of a mold...break out of the ordinary. I've had other blog(s) for awhile now, but I think it's time for something new, something different. But, as I've opened this page and even posted once before, only to start over now, we'll see how long it lasts.

Should there be some "about me" bullshit put in here somewhere? I don't know that I've ever formally introduced myself to anyone. I don't know that I've ever cared to, but I find so many of you that I've read and gotten some inspiration from charming and funny, I guess it's only fair to let you know a little about what you might be dealing with.

I work in a small city for a printer. Before you ladies start tossing panties in my direction, it's not Cool printing. It's business stuff. Yeah, it bores the hell out of me too. I'm going to try my best to keep work out of my blogs, but sometimes either a funny story or a rant against the idiots that surround me will creep in. But, no whining. Not about work anyway. Why do I feel like I'm on a date all of a sudden? Please tell me the second post gets easier. Also, please tell me that I'll figure out this internet stuff soon, because I'm damn lost on these Fancy Pages. Anyway, back to boring you out of your skull. My hobbies include sitting on the porch drinking beer and laughing at the Ape-man that lives behind me, going out to the 3 cool bars that my town has (out of about a hundred chain restaurants), and trying to find a little peace and quiet amidst the noise that is life. Whoa...that sounded too deep and abstract or just stupid. I can't decide. But, yeah...I'm a pretty simple guy. I'm kinda smart (they tell me) even though I don't feel like it and have spent the last couple years trying to get past some bad decisions...and I love to laugh more than anything. Anything. So, I guess we'll see how this goes.
