Here's something I came up with all by myself. Single women...how do you do it? How do you paint on that smile for a date that you know is probably just an excuse to get out of the house. How do you not break down and accept a suitor who is without question sub-par just to not deal with the bullshit of dating? Here's one for the fellas: Fellas, how/why in the hamsammich hell do you sit there and give a chic money and items JUST BECAUSE???? What type shit is that? Why?? And I know some of you do it sans booty. Amazing!
Kids sports today, how pathetic. We have kids who can't run around a damn track but will wreck yo ass in Playstation. I've made the decision to coach baseball, but NOT theOffSpring's team. I'm old school and I refuse to coach my son's team because I take it seriously and I know he's only doing it for fun. Football is his sport. He (not me) decided that he needs to step up and do more if he wants to play a featured position. In baseball, he could care less and I'm fine with that. We as parents do need to push our kids off of the couch, but also need to let kids participate in sports on a level of optimal comfort and performance. A level where they can push themselves and enjoy their OWN development.
I'm done. Thanks.

I don't know if I posted about this before but there is this security guard at work who is crazy dumb. I once spent 20 minutes of my valuable time trying to figure out make-money-fast certs, degrees for a woman who doesn't even know what she wants to do.
Today I saw DumDumStick on her way to work from the parking lot. She had her lunch with her, but uhhhhh...she had lunch in a ziplock bag. Not even in a paper bag or a plastic bag. Even more so than that, you know what DumDumStick had in her ziplock bag? A frozen Murray Steak House hamburger patty and some frozen french fries.
no lettuce and tomato
just hamburger and fries consolidated in a big ass ziplock bag. Too bad, so sad.
Other "news" of the day, my co-worker G-Money has really got me stuck on old school Hip Hop because he and I talk to each other in Old Schoolese.
Me: What up G-Money? You jammin' on the one?
G-Money: No doubt. I got 6 CO's and 5 more to go
Me: Damn Son! Murder was the case that they gave you?
G-Money: 187 on an undercover cop.
That's just how we do. Its funny because well pass each other's cubes or will be at a client's desk and say
"I'm going back to Cali..."
"I don't think so."
I guess you have to be there. I ate lunch with Wisdom (my best friend from elementary school) today. We went to Legal Seafoods. If you ever go there I strongly recommend the soups over the entrees. He had the MD crab, I had the gumbo; both were BOMB DIGGITY...damn. See? I'm still doing it!
He and I caught up and talked about family and jobs. He and I seem to coincidentally make jobs moves simultaneaously. If the trend holds true, I'll be at my job no longer than 6 months. We shall see.
Oh yeah. Today I had a queer moment. When I first sat down with Wisdom, these 2 men were leaving the restaurant. The first man out the door struck me as odd. I didnt realize why at consciously, but subconsciously it was because his suit was really baggy. Not a big deal, but odd for a white man. So subsconsciously, I gave him the quick scan and E-gad!(that's the new way of spelling it) Dude's dizzat was almost down to his knee!! WTF?? I could not BELIEVE that shit. I would have stood up and given him a standing ovation, but he walked out too fast. Must be nice! if I was packing like that, I would linin' 'em up swinging it like a night stick.
That's all I got man! I'm out.

First let me start with the neighborhood and house. I have nothing against the burbs, but it was obvious that this neighborhood was designed in a big-city waterfront office by teenie little guys in cat-shaped eyeglasses who drink Starbucks and give "This Side Up" gift certificates for Christmas. The houses were nice, they all looked different but not so different that they weren't considered a neighborhood. I guess they hit the urban neighborhood in the burbs theme so well that it looked artificial. Very "Desperate Housewives"-ish. Our hosts' house on the inside was great however. Large alcove, cathedral ceilings and a kitchen big enough to do the nasty in. A FEW times and a FEW different ways.
The evening began as we were among the earlier arrivers. Mama sent us down to the basement to play some pool while the Offspring was relegated to the kids room. Downstairs was a beautiful pool table with red felt. There were plenty of us down there to play pool, so we played on teams. My partner, Scarface, decided to partner with me to be iconoclastic because we were the only non-latino team. We also were the crappiest team too as neither one of us has much pool hall skills. It showed in the 1st 2 games as Scarface and I got housed. The 1st game we got 2 balls in the pockets, the 2nd game, 1. However, we represented and came back with the strength. We both had these odd cues that would illuminate when you tapped them on the floor. The illuminated part looked like lightening. That....coined my nickname for the night; La Tormenta. I announced it during the second game and the name stuck as I heard people in the background say "AH! La Tormenta! It's true!"
Food? Man! Plenty of food. You know how if you have a potluck and you ask people to bring something they either collectively bring nothing or everything. This party was the latter. 2 of everything.
Oh, the dancing. Yes. There was dancing as advertised. A little advanced for my skillset, but I danced a couple times. Actually, it was a lot advanced as most of the dancing was the multiple couple dance rueda. I can barely dance with one parner let alone switch to another in Spanish . I lucked out though; there was a dance instructor who was invited to the party and showed me how to do this niiice combo spin move. HOWEVER, when I wanted to practice this move later, my demonstrative partner says this (and I quote): "you don't know the moves good enough do it with the music". Ouch.
Highlights of the evening:
1.) incidental babysitting. It seems the hosts' littlest one loved me; particularly the dreds. The other little one thought I had funny faces and referred to the Offspring as "That Boy".
2.) meeting Dulcita. In my opinion, the eye-candy of the party (next to the hostess, of course) who had the oddest name. "Is that your real name?"
Funny how she sat and watched "Lion King 1.5" with the Offspring while the odd name was all the convo I got outta her. SOMEBODY got pimp Juice early!
3.) Steeler Country. There were 2 teams that the hosts viewed as their own; the Lions and the Steelers. Needless to say, there was Steeler shit everywhere. Both WebmasterMama and BigO had the gear on AND had it for their kids. That was the toughest part of the night for a Purple and Blacker like myself. Drinks were flowing EARLY for the Big BK....UGH.
Oh, BTW....NFL In Review: The Fucken Pittsburgh Steelers. Super Bowl Champions.

We are having a debate over here as to if Taye Diggs can beat my ass. Dude is 5' 7 at best, and a buck 80 wet. I'm 260, 5'11 and can probably bench close to 300lbs. Now you tell ME who gonna kick WHO'S ass????
