Halloween was suppose to be fun

Here’s my HUGE pet peeve about Halloween in Canada. I remember as a kid watch the Halloween cartoon specials on TV and it would be fall weather but when I looked out the window, there would be a foot of snow on the ground. Charlie Brown never had to trick or treat in the snow. What’s the deal with that?

The worse part was the fact that because of the cold and the snow, I had to trick or treat wear my winter coat over my costume. How the hell was anyone supposes know what I was supposed to be with my coat on? So basically you’re wearing that cheap mask and your coat, knocking on doors demanding candy from people. Oh top of that, that stupid mask would only last for 10 minutes before the rubber ban would break and you ended up trick or treating without the mask and your winter coat covering your costume. Halloween sucked big time.

Then you end up at a house where some smart ass would ask for a trick. So I’d be thinking “My mask is broken, I’m wearing my winter coat over my costume and you want a trick. BEND OVER I’LL SHOVE MY BROEKN MASK UP YOUR ASS. HOW’S THAT FOR A TRICK FOR YOU BITCH!!!”

Needless to say, I had some anger management issues as a kid.

So I’ve discovered the perfect Halloween costume for a kid in Canada; a hockey player. It’s warm enough so you don’t have wear a coat and if someone starts asking for a trick, you whack him in the face with the hockey stick.

Happy Halloween

Give me some CANDY

This morning I was watching some news report that was talking about kids and trick or treating. Of course, they were talking about nutrition and giving healthy snacks like fruit rollups, check and even carrot sticks. Now I must confess that I LOVE cheese, and the idea of a fruit rollup doesn’t sound so bad, but if someone were to put carrot sticks in my goody bad, those same carrot sticks would be shoved right up their ass. What’s wrong with letting a kid enjoy his damn candy on Halloween?

As I continued to watch, I’ve decided that having a Dietician as a parent would ROYALLY SUCK. Telling you to eat healthy all the time. I’d be one bitter kid, that’s for sure. It’s like that one kid who can’t do the cool things because his mom is overprotective.

As I continued to watch the report went to talk about non candy treats like colouring books and even Play-Doh. Now everyone knows that there’s a really dumb kid in every class. A “Ralph”, and that kid is going to eat the Play-Doh. I’m just glad that the stuff is non-toxic.

Personally, if someone were to give me a damn Colouring book, guess where’s its going? I’ll give you a hint; someone will be walking funny for at least a week. Halloween is for Candy dammit!!! I want these people to stop ruining a holiday for the kids.

I'm a man, not some animal.

I think now is a good time to write a blog post because I’m PISSED OFF, but I’m not going to blog about being pissed off. This isn’t going to turn into a bitchfest.

This morning I’m going through Google News and I read about this Muslim cleric making comments that about how rape is the woman’s fault because by not staying at home or covering herself from head to toe in some fabric. He went on to compare it to leaving raw meat in the open to attract animals.

As a male, I would like to think that we as a gender have evolved beyond looking at women simply as a piece of ass. I would like to believe that we are able to see anyone, male or female as an individual. I would like to believe that we are able to think with our minds and not our crotches.

This asshole of is basically blaming the victims of this disgusting crime. Here’s an unusual idea. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS. How about blaming the criminals for the actions instead of the victims. Sheesh. Stupid asshole.

The part I love even more is that he claimed that he never meant to offend anyone. Though the only reason he’s backpedaling is because even Muslim organizations are outraged by him comments. Now he’s has to do some ass kissing or else he won’t be allowed to teach in Australia’s largest Mosque.

I wonder if this guy realized that he’s actually putting down males by making them seem like they are no better than dogs that humps trees. I would like to think that we’ve evolved beyond that. However this guy doesn’t think that we have.

More proof that someone has been peeing in the Gene Pool

Teenage girls are smoking as a means of weight reduction. Are they fucking stupid or what? Last time I checked, the doctor wasn’t prescribing cigarettes as weight loss. Arghhh, will someone just shoot these stupid people now and get it over with. I can’t take it anymore.

I’ve seen women who have smoked since their teens and guess what? They turn into short, wrinkly, old looking women. It’s not a pretty picture and these stupid teenage girls think that cigarettes are going to prevent them from gaining a pound of two. Last time I checked, the warning on the package didn’t say “Warning, may lead to weight loss”. IDIOT!

This reminds of the conversation I had with my sister. When was looking all smug and she told me, “They just say that it’s bad for you, there’s no proof”. Then my reply was “Why do you think they put the warning in the damn package. You think it’s a marketing ploy? You think people look at the package and think, hey, this stuff causes lung cancer, I gotta try it”. Needless to say, she walked away from me then. For the record, she still smokes. My brother and I are the only ones who don’t. My dad quit several but my inability to stop caused him to start again.

Perhaps I’m being unfair to judge all teenage girls for having this stupid idea (however I have a feeling that I’m not). I was reading that the study was done in Montreal and I’ve seen some REALLY stupid girls from Montreal. I remember this news report about 2 teens being arrested for killing an elderly couple and CFCF (Montreal TV station) news has this interview with this girl crying saying that the killers should be let go and that they didn’t mean it. THEY DIDN’T MEAN IT?????

Actually now that I think about it, smoke em if you got them, so you’ll develop lung cancer quickly and then you’ll drop dead. DUMB ASSES.

The Weekly Yadda Yadda

Once again, I find myself at a loss as to what to write about. BIG FRIGGIN SURPRISE. I’m not feeling the rants as much as I use to but it doesn’t mean that I can’t write about something interesting, right? RIGHT!!!!

The worse thing is that one thing that I seem to be proud of right now is the screen shot of Silent Moon that I took yesterday. The thing is that I don’t want to Geek out on this post because I’m a closet geek. As well as a closet pervert and a closet asshole and ….. you get my point, but I have nothing to do with THAT CLOSET, so don’t go there..

I was talking to my Mom last night and she tends to go on and on, and then she complained that I didn’t have much to say. My reply was, read my blog. Yes my mom has the URL but that’s ok. I never talk smack about my mom or dad and I’m not scared to tell them what I think of other members of my family, like the crazy cousin who got married 2 years ago, ON SEPTEMBER 11th !!!! Who the hell gets married on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil EVER!!! His reply is that the date will be easy to remember. BUY A CALENDER AND MARK THE DATE DAMMIT!!!

Anyway, my mommy and I were talking and … she basically talked about family and friends. A nice conversation but nothing that I need to blog about, except something about people who borrow money from their parents CONSTANTLY. Friggin losers. GET A JOB.

I still need a topic for this post though, so let me check THE ONION. Maybe they will have something interesting to talk about. MMM Barbara Streisand is on her 14th farewell tour. Why won’t she go away? I love to see Bette Midler beat the crap out of Barbara. Let’s face it; she’s the one to do it too. It would make a great pay-per-view. Picture it, Bette coming up behind Barbara with a chair and knocking her out. Oh the humanity.

Oh there’s a good one. Howard Stern Organizes Women's Health Symposium. Any man who would have a woman deep throat a 13th inch kielbasa sausage has to be interested in women’s health, among other things.

I guess this ends another yadda yadda post.

Just winging it was some yadda adda

I have no idea what to write about again, as traditions require it. I’m going to wing it.

I can still feel the effects of the lung infection. I’m still coughing, but the good news is that the coughing isn’t as frequent or as severe. It still sounds like a wet cough but I’m not as nasty.

Work is work and it’s keeping me somewhat busy. There’s this guy who’s starting to be a real pan in the ass. He likes to talk down to people, but he knows better than to try that shit with me. I managed to get him all confused once, talking geek tech and he never tried it again. The weird part is that I almost NEVER talk geek tech, unless it’s with other IT people, that way I can get an ideal across quicker.

Personally I hate people who talk like that because it makes people feel like they are superior to others, while normal people look confused. I NEVER do that. It doesn’t matter if I’m talking to an employee, management or my mom. I get more satisfaction having people understand what I need to explain as opposed to some jackass who wants to make themselves better by making others feel dumb. I still remember that one incident where that one guy was bugging the sales guy at an EB Games about games for Linux. All I wanted to say to that guy was “Move out of your parent’s basement asshole”.

Oh I’ve run into a snag with trying to start up the podcast started again. It seems that I can only record half the conversations on my Vonage VPhone. I’m still working on it and I’m hoping to have the problem solved in the near future. I honestly believe that it can’t be that hard to fix. I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

Now there are 15 minutes left until I get to go home and I wonder why the heck I should come in tomorrow or Friday? Something about responsibilities I guess. I think it has something to do with dealing with the same crap over and over again. It just makes you not want to get out of bed in the morning. I wonder if porn stars have that problem. The look at the alarm clock and think “crap, I have 2 sex scenes to do today. Do I feel like getting laid today or just staying home and sleeping in?”

Crap. Why do people start calling me with problems 15 minutes before quitting time? Now I’m stuck with some overtime. Dammit. I just want to go home. So I’m ending this and calling it a day.

I'm feeling much better now

I’m feeling a lot better today. What a difference a good night’s sleep and some antibiotics make. It turns out that I didn’t have the flu. I discovered that I have a lung infection. Joy. The good news that the drugs are working and I feel better. I was given the pills and an inhaler for when breathing becomes difficult. I’m trying to use it but some has decided that they should be able to use my desk and phone. After giving them a dirty look, they got out of my chair, but he’s still yakking on my phone.

Now that I think about it, I’ve been having coughing fits for some time, but I didn’t anything about it until a few weeks ago when I coughed myself into a semi conscious daze. It was at that point, I knew something was up, but I didn’t follow up on it till yesterday. Oh well, now I learned my lesson. Well, probably not.

For the past few days I’ve been suffering from shortness of breath and now I really feel for people with Asthma. Having to rely on that puffer sucks.

Yaaa !!! he’s done, I can use my puffer in peace.

I did some research on the antibiotics I’m taking. It’s called Azithromycin and it apparently has several uses, from lung infections to dealing with STD’s. So it can take care of breathing problem and my Gonorrhoea at the same time. WOW. Isn’t Medical Science wonderful?

I'm Sick.

I'm sick. I feel like crap and I'm at work. Why? Because a vendor is coming in to do some work and I'm the only person who knows what has to be done.

However, after the vendor leaves, I'm going straight to the doctor's office.

Wordy Games.

I found this cool Tetris game where you have to spell words for you to clear the block. Its like Tetris meets Scrabble. Chick here to play Wordy

Be warned that this game is addicted and but difficult. I find myself looking for a word in the mess of letter so I can clear some spaces. To my shame, the word 'tit' has helped me several times. Oh and the word 'sex' is worth 300 points; because of the X i guess. I have managed to create 5 word letters like 'moose' and ......'moose'. OK I got Moose once, but hey the game is addictive.

Good Job

I was going to write some bullshit post about how I hate waiting for the people behind the counter at McDonalds to put my food in a bag so I can it to work. I watched my Breakfast Burritos sit under the heat lamp for 2 minutes before someone bothered to put them in a bag and give them to me. I was going to write about how I should be able to charge the damn place a dollar for every minute they make me wait, but then a coworker told me some good news. She’s leaving. She gave her 24 hour notice today. Now normally I’m a firm believer of the 2 weeks notice policy, but they have been piling the more and more work onto her and they refused to give her a pay raise. Well C’est la vie.

I really don’t want to do an anti my company post but there are some things that this company has to realize that the Calgary job market is not like Toronto, Moncton or anywhere else in the country. Calgary is a place where KFC offers medical and dental benefits. Calgary is a place where McDonalds advertises that they are hiring ion the side of buses, and in an ads in the movie theatre before the movie starts. Calgary is a place where Tim Horton’s is offering scholarships to its employee to go back to school. In Calgary, it’s an employee’s market. There’s a store in Chinook Center that’s offering $12.00 to start (in sales). Heck, you go into the mall and the sign on the door says that they’re hiring. This is the mall, not the stores in the mall.

The whole province is short staffed right now. I remember reading a few months ago about how a lot of the admin people at City hall got recruited by the oil companies and some people just don’t want to understand that. Some companies are content to think that they are the ones to who get to pick and choose, not realizing that it’s the other way and they’re going to suffer for it. Company loyalty will only last for far when another company offers you over $20,000 more a year right after they refused to give you a dollar raise.

So my friend will now be earning $27.00/hr. While I’m happy for her, there’s one little problem. SHE’S MAKING MORE MONEY THAN ME !!!!!

There are some projects going on around here that I want in my resume so I’ll probably stick around, but I might have to move on soon as well. Unless the company realizes what is really going on in Calgary.

Chocolate and Gay Sex

There’s this creepy commercial I’ve been seeing on TV lately. It’s for Cadbury Chocolate. The commercial is a computer generated and looks like its claymation. Anyway the commercial has some Beach Boys type music playing and some surfer dude surfing (wow, what a concept), and the end this shark comes up and looks at the surfer guy with this ‘Heya Baby’ look on his face. Then the guy looks back and SHAKES HIS ASS to which the shark gives this ‘oh yeah’ look. Meanwhile the music has the works, ‘bite you’ and ‘invite you’. Bottom line is the Shark and the Surfer Dude are about to have GAY SEX; when the commercial ends.

Now I’m not a homophobe. I feel Gay people should have the right to be married (that would put an end to the sex), but this commercial is just creepy. An animated surfer dud shaking his ass, telling a shark to ‘come here big boy’ is a little much. (Or maybe I’m being an intolerant ass, I’m not sure).

I do remember that some people thin that chocolate is an Aphrodisiac and I’ve had an occasion or 2 where chocolate was used in ….nevermind.

Maybe I’m not ready for Claymation gay sex, not that it’s nothing new. We’ve known about the Pillsbury dough boy, telling people to ‘poke’ him for years. Oh and he died of a yeast infection because of it. Perhaps it’s just the sign of the times. After all, we have commercials where animated bears are telling each other how much toilet paper we need to wipe their asses. At least were not seeing a “We’ve replaced the condom that Bob usually uses with XXXXX, let’s see if he notices the difference” commercial filled with groans and orgasmic scream.

Looks what's falling from the sky

Awhile back, I said something about porno being the same old crap and I was pretty bored with it. Apparently I’m not the only one who thought that and decided to do something about it. Now they’re making Skydiving Porn. Sex while skydiving. GREAT!!!

It’s not with its perils thought; a porn star named Vanessa Lynn cut her leg while landing after doing a scene. I glad that she’s ok though. One thing I have to wonder about is the amount of times you’d have to jump in order to do one scene. It’s not like you have much time up there. At least they’re trying something different.

Then I found some other site (only one actually) talking about Skydiving Porn. This depressed me. I need to see naked people falling from the sky. It would just make my day. Think about it. You’re having a bad day. You look out the window and WOW, Naked people are falling from the sky. I would fee a whole lot better.

Then again, there are some peril that might come up, like this.

I'm not Motivated

Motivation. ACK!!! I need motivation. I have some good ideas, (well sorta) but I’m not motivated to write. It’s usually earlier in the day that I feel like writing. Sharing my soul or shoveling bullshit. Either way I’m not motivated right now.

The worst part is that I have some potential topics but I’m just not up to thinking about what to write. I could write about the new show Heroes, which I love. I could write about the woman, who survived a car accident thanks to her breast implants,.

I’m could write about how I love this show, how I love the whole concept of Super Heroes and how this show basically introduces super heroes into our world, or I could write how all women should have 40DD breast implants done in order to protect themselves from head on injuries in a car accident. Right now I’m not motivated to write about either. Oh and Lord knows I love boobs.

Its at the point that I’m writing this paragraph an hour later after the last one. I had to play City of Heroes for at least one mission tonight. It wouldn’t be right otherwise.

Sigh, I need motivation. Hopefully I’ll be more inspired tomorrow. I should at least check my lottery tickets to see if I won anything.
