Happy Steak & Blow Job Day

So I was on Myspace and saw a bulletin from an (e:peep) and thought there was something I should comment on. Maybe it is that I'm single so I forget about this holiday but today is Steak and BJ Day.

You know the drill. Every 14th of February you get the chance to display your fondness for a significant other by showering her with gifts, flowers, dinner, shows and any other baubles that women find romantic. Every Valentines day you rack your brains for that one special, unique gift that will show your wife or girlfriend that you really do care for them more than any other. Now ladies, I'll let you in on a little secret; guys really don't enjoy this that much. Sure seeing that smile on your face when we get it right is priceless, but that smile is the result of weeks of blood, sweat and consideration. Another secret; guys feel left out. That's right, there's no special holiday for the ladies to show their appreciation for the men in their life. Men as a whole are either too proud or too embarrassed to admit it.

Which is why a new holiday has been created.

March 14th is now officially "Steak and Blowjob Day". Simple, effective and self explanatory, this holiday has been created so you ladies finally have a day to show your man how much you care for him.

No cards, no flowers, no special nights on the town; the name of the holiday explains it all, just a steak and a BJ. Thats it. Finally, this twin pair of Valentine's Day and Steak and Blowjob Day will usher in a new age of love as men everywhere try THAT much harder in February to ensure a memorable March 14th!

The word is already beginning to spread, but as with any new idea, it needs a little push to start the ball rolling. So spread the word, and help bring love and peace to this crazy world. And, of course, steak and BJ's.




You can look up the holiday for your self but here is one link about it

Not sure how much the site has other then what I have listed up there. I hope everyone has a good holiday. I can't celebrate it by myself since I can't blow myself but if I could I guess I could do that holiday. But if I could then this would be a completely different post with pictures and video, of course I would need someone to take the pictures and if that was the case then why do my self. All kidding around I think this is a holiday that everyone should have a great time with. I wish I would have remembered so I could have gone to Fridays and asked a waitress and see if they kick me out. I seem to allways forget though.

I also want to wish everyone has a great weekend and do something nice for St. Pats even if it is just going to see A free movie at Sheas or getting drunk and naked in the middle of Delaware.

This Weekend SouthParkBlack

So I'm hoping that I can stay awake tonight since there is supposed to be a new South Park on tonight (yeah to the end of the writers strike). I'm guessing that South Park will address it in there crazy way in one of the new episode. That is followed By Lewis Black who also has a new show (Hi guests 27 currently). I'm not sure if it is stand up or if he has guests but I know he is funny and that should carry it.

So this weekend is St. Patrick's day. I go to the parade on Delaware and try not to die from the cold. With being sick I'm not sure that is a good idea. Well I feel good but still have a cough and feel sick at home. Then Jackdaw (man it has been a long time since I've seen them I keep missing them) is playing at club W. That would be fun, but I can't imagine how crowded it will be in there. Granted I have never been there but I'm guessing moving will be impossible. Maybe I'll go we shall see how I feel.

Saturday is going to be a lot of fun (in the words of Henry Rollins the best part is the anticapation and that may be better then the show). I'm going to see the monster truck show. They have some freestyle motorcross riders also. Not sure if watching them or seeing the trucks up close in the pit will be more fun. They have a 2nd show on sunday also.

On a side note I feel like I have less to say lately but maybe that is just me. I mean post wise or thoughts wise and not really comment wise. Or maybe it is just that I feel I don't have much meaningfull things to say.

BanditsSwarmStorm + Movies

So we set our clocks ahead and spring is supposed to be coming and we get all this snow it did really look pretty nice last night as I walked home (not all the way from downtown) it was allmost picturesque like I was in a painting. Getting good pictures of the snow at night is tough. If you use a flash it hits the snow and bounces back and if not then the pictures can look dark some other setting focus on the light source. Here are some of my winter adventure pictures.

The Bandits did win and it was a great game with a couple of fights. But it was weird that I couldn't yell really. I knew that if I did I could just get my self real sick again. See before my boss gave me time off I started to get sick and I could feel it in my throat first and then it spreed or at least I could feel it other places I'm still not 100% and know that but I'm a lot better. Before the game I had time to watch 2 completely different movies. One was kinda funny called Crank it was pretty good and was shot kinda weird but I liked it and the other was Babel there is really no good way to explain it other then these families are struck by tradgedy and they are all kinda interconnected with out giving any thing away but I thought it was pretty good.


I guess here are some random Bandits Vs. Swarm Photos.

Sleep

So I'm still sick and Hopefully will be better for Saturday nights Bandits game, I'll still go but can't chance yelling. The burn that was in my throat I don't really want to come back again. I'm not a big a sleep person but leaving work early yesterday to sleep all night and then not going in today and all most getting 24 hours worth (of course breaks from it so about 24 hours of rest) sure did feel good. I feel good now but I think a lot of that is from the medicine. I hope everyone has a great weekend. That being said the sleep really felt good and I think I will be sleeping some more soon again.

Crappy Renter

(as a side note 63 guests wow). I hate being sick I really do it is not fun at all. Plugged ears, Head, and chest and (now 72 guests) sore throat. It doesn't help that my place is kinda messy. It doesn't help that my stove has gas pilot lights. It doesn't help that I have stagnet air that just sits there but at least my place is warm. Then On top of that I have a mouse, well I have only seen one but my downstairs neighbor has seen and caught about 10 of them. No of them have gone into my traps at all (3) Maybe I don't have enough or have bad bait not really sure. (96 and 6 bots wow). But that being said I not hope to much with going on line and working and then I watch a couple hours of tv and go to bed or pass out. I am one lazy fucker when not at work I really am. I need sleep I need to clean, ah what to fucking do. Argh, Maybe sleep or maybe clean some more. Sometimes I really hate my life, not that I would ever do anything crazy.

Saturday

Well Saturday stared out with a trip to Target for a New Watch and to get Beowulf. I did watch it but so far the directors cut looks just like what I saw at the movies so I'm confused. When I stopped watching it I set up the Timer for George Carlin on HBO I got home from the Bandits game in time to catch the end of it. But I couldn't stay up for SNL. Why is that when I want to watch it I can't stay up for it. And when I'm up it is one I have seen or I have something else on at the same time.

I hadn't really eaten all day so I got a Burger Basket and Buffalo Bites at the game. Other then the Bandettes the Early part of the game was rough it really was. The wings got out to an early lead and wound up being a head like 6 to 1. The bandits though are tough and changed goalies and then came back and tied it up and then when on a head and Kinda ran away with the game I really had a great time, even though it didn't start out that way.


Here are some random Pictures from the game:

One thing that isn't clear really from these pictures is that for this game when Dave Played the Bag Pipes and they did all the intros that the lights where on. What happens most times is the lights go off you hear him play and then the spot light goes on him. Not sure what way I like better. The normal way is more dramatic but pictures do come out better this way.

Stats and Sabres

So on Saturday I'm going to see the Bandits game (season tickets) and so I'll take pictures so I decided to wait to download my Sabres pictures until after that game. I had a great time and got to see all kinds of rough housing, fights, people trying to fight, Peters gets a goal "the new Guy" gets two goals and an asisit. I also had a good time at the Buffet before the game. Hope they win tonight.

So (e:drew) wrote about his stats so I figured why not write about mine and see what it says about views and stuff. If I click on the stats it opens up a new page so I'll just go with what I have on my stats bar.
I have 958 Journals I can't believe I have written that many it doesn't seem right and I also have 312,182 views again that seems very high so that works out to about 325 views per journal. That doesn't mean anyone read what I had to say it just means they looked at it, or maybe they did a picture search and found my pictures. I have 721 comments that averages out to about .75 comments per journal. That being said that looks like I don't have very many comments but there where a lot of journals written before comments was a feature.

I forgot about the Tab feature in firefox in terms of most journals I'm #2 currently. That being said (e:paul) has more then twice the number of posts I do and it looks like it is close to 3 times as many there is a big gap there. In terms of most viewed again I'm second to Paul. But I'm so far behind it isn't even funny if you where to ad and round up me to 500,000 he would still have tipple the amount I have. I do lead the #1 spot in comments I have made I guess I have a lot of stuff to add to what others say. I have 721 comments received up top I said how low the average was and had an a reason for it, but over all I'm 13th there.

I guess my general point is that Stats don't lie. But that they can be used to prove the point of the person trying to prove a point. Here I wasn't really trying to prove or say anything really. But I think that when ever you see stats in an article or what ever you should understand that there are different ways of measuring them. There are also factors that if you don't know them could throw them off. For example (e:Paul) has a lot more Journals then I do and that would also explain why he is also so far ahead of me in views. Another factor in that is I am not an original on the site. I can remember sometimes Paul would have 3 journals that where unrelated to each other in the same day. So when ever you read stats you should believe them but also remember that if someone has an agenda they can make it so the stats make it look like one way when it isn't. Here is a great example if I have a Penny and I find a little bit of money I could give you some huge number of how much of a percent how much money I have then you say "Dude you are rich lets go out on the town" then I say "I think I just have enough for a candy bar". Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Oakland Marjiuna Colleger

I was going to post something that was going to be not stupid but something that seems like it doesn't matter or something but as soon as I saw this article I was like wow I have to post this. I can now say that maybe I should go back to school. I really don't want to but this would be a cool place to go and learn. Even though it might be risky for some legal reasons maybe if I did well enough in school I could stay in California and live there. This was on Yahoo.

Oakland school turns out pot club pros

By LISA LEFF, Associated Press Writer 43 minutes ago

OAKLAND, Calif. - You know you're in a different kind of college when a teaching assistant sets five marijuana plants down in the middle of a lab and no one blinks a bloodshot eye.


Welcome to Oaksterdam University, a new trade school where higher education takes on a whole new meaning.

The school prepares people for jobs in California's thriving medical marijuana industry. For $200 and the cost of two required textbooks, students learn how to cultivate and cook with cannabis, study which strains of pot are best for certain ailments, and are instructed in the legalities of a business that is against the law in the eyes of the federal government.

"My basic idea is to try to professionalize the industry and have it taken seriously as a real industry, just like beer and distilling hard alcohol," said Richard Lee, 45, an activist and pot-dispensary owner who founded the school in a downtown storefront last fall.

So far, 60 students have completed the two-day weekend course, which is sold out through May. At the end of the class, students are given a take-home test, with the highest scorer - make that "top scorer" - earning the title of class valedictorian.

Before getting to Horticulture 101, the hands-on highlight of Oaksterdam U, the 20 budding botanists, entrepreneurs and political activists at a recent weekend session sat politely through two law lectures and a visiting professor's history talk.

In the lab, Lee measured plant food into a plastic garbage can and explained how, with common sense, upgraded electrical outlets, a fan and an air filter, students can grow pot at home for fun, health, public service - or profit.

Lee explained to his students how to prune and harvest plants, handing the clipping shears to a woman who wasn't sure how close to the stalk to cut without damaging it. He offered his thoughts on which commercial nutrient preparations are best, as well as the advantages of hydroponics, or soil-free gardening.

During a discussion of neighbor relations, he warned against setting boobytraps to keep curious kids out of outdoor gardens.

Students gave various reasons for enrolling. Some said they were simply curious. Others said they wanted tips for growing their own weed, although judging from the questions, a few were ready for the graduate seminar Lee recently added to the curriculum.

Jeff Sanders, 52, said he has been buying medical marijuana since 2003, but wants to open a dispensary in the San Joaquin Valley because he doesn't like having to drive up to San Francisco and paying the markup.

"I see it as a good thing. You are giving back to the community," Sanders said.

Patrick O'Shaughnessy, 37, said he started smoking pot regularly for the first time about a year ago to treat his chronic migraines, depression and anxiety. After attending class, he said felt more confident about growing his own, which he wants to do because the dispensary he frequents often sells out of his favorite strain.

Oaksterdam U draws its name from the jokey nickname for a section of Oakland where some of California's earliest medical marijuana dispensaries took root. The nickname in turn was inspired by the city of Amsterdam, in Holland, where pot use is tolerated.

At one point, the Oaksterdam neighborhood had at least 15 clubs and coffee shops selling pot, a number that dwindled to four when the city started issuing permits and collecting taxes from them a few years ago.

California was the first of a dozen states that have legalized marijuana use for patients with a doctor's recommendation. Despite periodic raids by federal drug agents and the threat of prosecution, clubs and cooperatives where customers can buy the drug of their choice have proliferated; California has 300 to 400, according to advocacy groups.

Entry-level workers are paid a little more than minimum wage, while "bud tenders," can make over $50,000 a year, and owners and top managers more than $100,000, Lee said. But there's also a certain amount of risk - and not just financial, but legal.

Michael Chapman, an assistant agent in charge with the Drug Enforcement Agency's San Francisco office, said authorities are aware of Oaksterdam U and don't see any reason to shut it down. Talking about marijuana is not illegal, and while a small amount of pot is kept on the premises, the DEA tries "to concentrate our case work on the most significant violators," he said.

Still, Chapman said he doesn't like Lee's effort to wrap cannabis education in a cap and gown.

"I think they are sending the wrong message out to the community and it's something that could only facilitate criminal behavior," he said.



I just thought of something else. Does anyone know if for the medical stuff you can cross pollenate. The reason I wonder is that there are weeds that (from what I heard) have been crosspollenated so they kinda taste like apple or peach as in Peach Melba. I wonder where I could find that on line, maybe for fun I should look that up. If the DEA raids me more looking stuff up you'll know when I'm not online for two weeks. I wonder when the Medical stuff will go to the supreme court. It seems like if a state says it is legal the feds can't say it is illegal that violates the Constituiton or maybe if it is allready that way then the states can't make it legal. If it ever goes or goes again (more research for if I ever have the free time) I hope the states win.

SNL's Kingdom

So some I know gave me an Illegal copy of "The Kingdom" I liked how it started out with a history of oil and politics. All in all I thought it was a very good movie with lots of action and suspense. That being said the one problem (I assume it was filmed wrong and that the movie wasn't this way) was that their where no subtitles when "middle easterners talked to each other". I can understand it when there are Americans and a guy who translates but it would have been nice to know what was going on like in an intearagation scene. I finished watching it after I caught the end of the hockey game. I wish the Sabres would have won but it was still a great game.

I wanted to stay up and Watch SNL it was new with Tina hosting and Huckabee as a guest. I did tape my Adult swim Animee. But I passed out on the news. That being said I did go to NBC.com and I did find some funny stuff that was on last night. I don't know if they have a way to download the clips, and even if they did I have no idea how to put them in a journal so... From what I saw it looked like the show was pretty funny. I think that some people think the show sucks or did suck, but most of those same people I think would still like Weekend update. For some reason I think that has all ways been funny. I also think that if not for the success of that segment John Stewart and Colbert wouldn't have a show or maybe they would but I'm sure that was an inspiration for there shows (I assume).

For those of you like award shows or just want to see who wins the Oscars are on tonight. I find it odd that most years I haven't seen most of the movies nominated but that isn't all ways true. I hope (unless it is up for other movies I like) No country for old men wins everything. I wonder if Sweeny Todd being a musical or Enchanted got nominated for anything they where both so different but both so good. On a side note I hate fucking mice.

Problem with Bloging and BuffNEWS

First of all (e:ladycroft) don't take this as me bashing you because I'm not at all. I think you are pretty awesome and I'm sure you are great at your job. With the news post about the stalking and your post it got me thinking about something. I like blogging and reading blogs but there is a problem with it, and with the the Buffalo News also.

The problem is that it is one sided. First with the news. Yesterday The Buffalo News put a picture of those two Tiger Cubs and a little blurb about it. They should have had a short article below the picture. If Buffalo had another Daily news paper maybe there would have been a full article that gave all the facts. So since there is only one paper source if you only read the paper you only get their side of it and you don't get the entire story.

Blogs are kinda the same way. Well it depends on the subject matter of course. I will do something that I maybe shouldn't do but will anyways and use my work as an example. There is this guy who i have now named "Coffee Boy" and there is a good reason for this. When this dude works he comes right in and gets a coffee then talks to everyone in the office then at some point makes it out to the floor. What he does next isn't all ways the same but it is all ways not doing any work or seeing if there are any orders to fill. He walks around like a big shot like he owns the place and just starts talking to someone who is busy working as he fucks off. If he was a boss then no big thing but it isn't like he is figuring out how to run things that day or anything he is just lazy and doesn't want to do anything. The thing with this is it is an everyday thing and it is very annoying take my word for it, it really is. If I where to read someone else say this I would think what an ass how do you put up with this guy, and why hasn't he been fired or something along those lines. But the thing is that you are only getting my side of it, he doesn't get to present his side. In this case i don't know of much he can say really, well he could say it takes him 5 minutes and I make it sound like 2 hours. But the point is you only hear my side so it is kinda unfair.

I guess the Better example is the other day I ripped into him pretty good. Don't get me wrong I like the guy but work wise he has a long way to go. Now there is nothing wrong with goofing off, Bullshiting, breaking on each other or even playing pranks. But there is a difference between doing that as you work and making that the focus. I can tell you for sure that he puts that before doing his work and that is what leads to most of the mistakes he makes. I know people make mistakes and that is fine. But when the mistakes you make are because you are concentrating on other things instead of picking that is unaceptable. I ripped into him because I didn't want him helping me because he comes over and starts talking and talking and talking and just not doing anything and causing me to get a headache. Sometimes he just needs how to shut the fuck up and do the orders right. So he gets mad at me, fuck him. Then for the reason I didn't want his help for he goes and does. He made a mistake that was really stupid but is easy to do, I have done it myself but have caught myself. The reason I got caught is cause I pay attention. Then the next one was so stupid I couldn't believe he really did it. Now when he comes over and fucks off all he does is fucking make my job that much harder he isn't a help at all really he just winds up being a hinderance. Again with this story you would think what an ass Pete no wonder why you are so tired all the time and don't ever want to interact with people when you work with an asshole like that. But the problem with that is you don't know his side of the story. I'm sure he would say that he makes mistakes and it is no big deal that everyone does it and he might have a good point and might have a different reason for his mistakes like someone picking on him or something.

Wow that felt good to vent like that. I guess what I'm try to say is that when you read a journal entry you should remember that it is only one persons view of what happened and that there is at least another side to the story. I have heard that there are 3 sides to every story you have the side of each person telling it and then the truth somewhere in the middle. I'm not saying to not believe people but to just remember you only have the facts that they present, unless you have something to do with the story.
