Self Improvement Check Up

by Slack, on January 30th, 2008

So, how am I doing so far? Well, I’m not going in 5th gear like I’ve tried in the past. YES! I’ve tried. Which is why I’m not doing that this time: I failed so miserably in the past that most of you who know me didn’t even notice that I was trying to improve anything!

So, I’m concentrating on a couple few things, in a very particular order:

1) QUIT SMOKING – How fucking long have I been smoking? Ridiculous long time. I remember when me and buddy of mine named Jason — no no, the other Jason — had our first drag off a cigarette at the ripe old age of 12. We can thank his grandpa for the left over K-rations and the rancid ass Lucky Strikes that were left in them. Thus began my adventure into Smokerville. Ahhh what a shit filled experience it’s been. I mean, if you could equate taste to a texture, smoking would be like sandpaper. Mmmm! Good times. Nine days into my quitting and so far so good! Thanks Nicoderm!! I saw what the pills do to a friend of mine, so I’m not touching that shit.

2) Remotivate at work – Why? Good question. If you get a good answer let me know. I’m going to give it my best shot to remotivate myself and not feel like I’m caught under an epileptic hippo watching Pokemon. Give yourself a pat on the back if you get that reference. Actually no.. You should probably get out more if you get that reference. … Actually I should probably get out more for making that reference…

3) Diet – Yep. Diet. Not that I’m going to hit this one hard. This is my tertiary “would-be-nice” goal. The “red-shirt” on my list if you will. :) But, if I can manage to do better on my diet and exercise, that’s bad ass. Not to mention, I’m sure this has a huge bit to do with numbers 1 and 2.

So, that’s where I’m at. Hope everyone out there is doing well, and all that happy shit. Chat at ya later!

How fucked up is it when you are so burnt out you can’t even write about being burnt out? LOL Chat at ya later.

Vegetarians…

I’m so glad my wife isn’t one of those preachy, meat-hater, vegetarian types… Even she’d get a kick out of this comic. :)

Rockin the 3 Day Weekend…

by Slack, on January 19th, 2008

NOT!!! Nope, I don’t get a three day weekend this weekend and that makes me sad. I’m happy for all you guys who do get to rock the weekend, though. God, and a three day weekend would just be friggin awesome right about now. Everything is so damn crazy at work, and I’m so burnt…

In other news, I did get to work on my Top Secret new project a bit last night, and I’ll do some more tonight. I need to get that damn thing live. Hopefully I’ll see some cash from this new project. If not, it will be a learning experience, and I will move on to the next one. ;)

In just a few here, we are headed to Lowe’s to get wood for Heidi’s garden boxes. It will be good to get that up and done for her. She’s as burnt as I am, and needs an outlet. Ahhh life. :)

Ok, all for now. Will write more if I find something interesting!

Blades…

by Slack, on January 14th, 2008

So, my love of swords and knives I think has been rekindled. For Christmas I received a survival knife as a gift. It’s been awhile since I have had a survival knife and I forgot how much I loved blades. LOL Yes… I’m a dork. Heidi received a buck knife, for a gift, and the whole time she was eyeing the survival knife. She’s never had a survival knife before. Well, I found that she loves blades as much as I do. How cool is that!? Ok, might be a little dorky, but whatever.

So, her buck knife was the only buck knife I have ever seen that I liked, and I needed something to carry. You can’t really carry a survival knife around town without looking like a dork. I mean, at that point, I might as well just carry my .45 everywhere. So, we traded knives, and now I find myself shopping around for swords again. :: sigh ::

The Queen of Rock and Roll

by Slack, on January 13th, 2008

The Queen of Rock and RollThe Queen of Rock and Roll is coming to America again! I missed her show last year, and damnit I’m really going to try and see her this year! Tempe is a drive, but come on… It’s Doro!

I’ve been listening to her since the 7th grade when she was fronting in Warlock, and her music has been a part of the theme to my life ever since. If you are metal fan, you know what I’m talking about, and if you don’t, give her a listen man!! She rocks!
