Someone asked me today what I thought of the Cavs chances tonight. I told him that I thought they had a 60% chance of winning. Every game is close, but if the Cavs can score 15 or more points in the third quarter, I think they will win the game. I guess we'll see.

I got back into town on Monday night, but have been in the Leadership Development Program for the past two days. I had no computer access during the program and last night I had no time either. I was running around like crazy trying to tie up loose ends from the weekend. Also, my grass likes to grow 4 inches every other day, so if I don't cut it several times a week, then I lose the ability to see out of my downstairs windows. I ended up cutting (a pain) and bagging (a bigger pain) the grass and spraying for weeds last night.

I also returned some stuff to the store and bought some other stuff. Then I unpacked from the trip and unpacked the new wedding\bridal shower gifts that appeared at my house over the weekend. I straightened up the house at the same time. Lastly, I managed to watch about a quarter of the Cavs game.

The Leadership Development Program ended today, so it's back to a more normal work day for me starting tomorrow. At the end I had a chance to win Cavs playoff tickets for this Saturday, but alas, I didn't win.

Blah, blah, blah. More of the same. Look forward to additional more of the same in the near future.

Hey Cleveland! Can you say robbed? I knew you could.

The problem is that the game should NEVER have come down to that. The Cavs play like one team in the first half and like a junior varsity version of that team in the second half. Until they can manage to play 4 consistently solid quarters, they'll never beat the Pistons.

Shrek 3 was okay. It had some funny moments, but in general the first one was the best. Somewhere along the way, I lost my crazy ratings guide, so I don't know what I would give it.

On a traditional 4 star rating scale, I would give it 2 1/2 stars. That is to say, it was good enough for Star Search, but not good enough for the Tonight Show.

Wednesday, May 23, 2007

We're going to see Shrek 3 tonight. I liked the first and second one, but apparently not as much as other people. I thought they had their moments, but overall I just remember them being too short.

We'll see what I think of Shrek the Third.

Expect a full report later tonight or tomorrow.

I know... you're waiting with bated breath.

Let's examine the gas prices situation for a moment, shall we? Gasoline on the market has decreased by 9.5 cents today. Gas prices at the stations in my area have gone up by 30 cents today. Interesting.

And by interesting, I mean that the system is clearly not working the way it needs to.

Barrels of oil are down $7 over this time last year. Gasoline prices are up $1.00 per gallon over last year. Hmmm. Interesting.

By this time the market should be telling people to build more refineries so that the demand and supply curves can be met. Instead, the suppliers are simply holding their supply steady (or in some cases actually curtailing supply by refinery maintenance.)

There's a simple solution to our problem. Build more freaking refineries!
Last night, we did not raid any grocery stores for their ice cream.

Lindsay took me to the Indians game. We had club seats. Unlike the Cavs at the Q, the Indians do club seats right. We had all the food and drinks we wanted, included in the price of admission. I ate so much that I made myself sick. Pizza, pasta, burgers, hot dogs, stir fry, nachos, pretzels, a meat carving station, ice cream, popcorn... you name it, and it was available. It was basically like a big sports bar (they had the Cavs playoff game on too) with all the food inside, and a nice dining area. Then outside, if you wanted to... you know... actually sit in your seats, the vendors were brining around food too. Who wants a hot dog? I do! Here you go. Just handing them out. It was great. A+

Lindsay is taking me out for half of my birthday present tonight. I have some guesses as to where we're going and what we're doing, but I'm not 100% positive.

I've been told to bring warm clothes and to come hungry.

That could mean just about anything though.

My prediction? We're raiding a grocery store and eating all of their ice cream from the freezer section.

Creed Thoughts!

Hey-o everyone out there in SyberWorld! It's old Creed coming at your again, here from my perch as a Quality Manager at Dunder Mifflin paper. Just a few observations on the world around me

What do you guys think is the best kind of car? To me it's motorcycles. They're small and dangerous.

I got into a car accident...

-- End Creed Thoughts!
Yes, I have too much time on my hands. Yes, that is exactly copied from what they showed on Creed's screen. It's far more tame than I thought it would be.

The Cavs blew a golden opportunity last night. If they could've finished off the Nets, they would've had at least one extra day of rest before playing the Pistons. The team needs to get it's head on straight. One game they look great, the next they look awful. Heck, one play they look great and the next they look awful. I've never seen an inconsistent team win a championship though. I think they're at least two years away, which is not a good thing considering LeBron's contract status.

On the other side of things, the Indians have Johan Santana's number for some reason. Specifically, Fausto Carmona has Johan Santana's number. He has outdueled the best pitched in baseball twice this year.

The countdown has really begun in earnest now. I spent last night packing up some of my stuff that I'll be getting rid of after Lindsay moves in. She spent the night packing up stuff to move over to my place and also stuff to sell in our yard sale.

If anyone has any requests for stuff that they need, we should have plenty to choose from. Rocker\swivelers, recliners, sleeper sofas, love seats, kitchen tables... everything must go!

I got my grade for marketing. A freaking B+. After all the crap I had to put up with in that class, he gave me a freaking B+! That drops my GPA. I'm barely Magna Cum Laude now. That means I actually need to try next semester. Boo!

“I think we’re dying,” he said. “We made brownies and I think we’re dead, I really do.”

This has to be among the most distasteful things anyone has ever done.

Within hours of the killings at Virginia Tech, some a-hole began buying dozens of domain names, including,,, in the hopes of selling them later to the highest bidder.

His explanation? "Everyone is profiting off of this," McChesney said. "I'm not hurting anyone."

Explain to me just exactly who is freaking profiting off a national tragedy? You're not hurting anyone? How about the families of the victims? He registered domains with the names of the victims after they were announced and tried to sell them to the families so they could make a memorial site.

Physical beatings. That's what this guy needs.

I'm not superstitious, but then again, that's exactly what I am.

If I don't talk about the teams that I like then they seem to do well. Is that because I'm not talking about them? Obviously not. Do I still feel bad for even talking about not talking about them? Yes I do. I'm looking for someone's arm to just fall right off now.

Go Shmavs! Let's go Shmindians!

The worlds largest hand dug well was destroyed last week by a huge tornado in Kansas. Normally that event would not have much of a relation to me. However, I have visited said well. It was indeed big.

Frankly, it reminded me of National Lampoon's Vacation. Let's all drive 1000 miles out of the way to see the worlds largest pile of mud. How about that huge ball of twine in the middle of Minnesota? Let's go see that! Ever wanted to see the Lincoln Watermelon Monument? Me too! By the way, that's exactly what it sounds like. It's an Abraham Lincoln monument that is actually just a big statue of a watermelon slice.

I think it would be hilarious to spend a whole summer driving around the country getting pictures of things like that.

I haven't posted since I left for Atlantic City. Has it been because I struck it rich and fled the country? Not exactly. I did not strike it rich, although everyone else seemingly did. I didn't lose my shirt either though, which I'm thankful for. I was down a mere $60 for the weekend. I'll take it. I had a lot more fun playing table games here than in Vegas where I only played machines.

The Indians will lose a home game in making up the four-game series against Seattle that was postponed last month by snow.

The games of April 6-8 will be played at Jacobs Field on May 21, June 11 and Aug. 30. The April 9 game will be held in Seattle on Sept. 26 as part of a doubleheader.

In a doubleheader in Seattle, Cleveland will be the host team in the opener.

That means that this year the Indians will have played home games in Cleveland, Milwaukee, and Seattle.

That's a bit odd don't you think?
My summer as a world traveler continues tomorrow. I'll be in Atlantic City helping Justin to celebrate his last remaining days as a bachelor.

Now to get philosophical on you... I don't think a bachelor party is really a celebration about being a bachelor. If it was, why would that person be getting married? That is to say, if the bachelor party is a celebration of being a bachelor, then that person would want to stay a bachelor. They obviously don't though. I think it's more just a time to celebrate the upcoming nuptials with your male friends. A time when you don't have to worry about embarrassing yourself. Male bonding so to speak.

The invitations are done! They're double checked for addresses and duplicates too. They should be going out soon.

The honeymoon should be paid for now too. From the sounds of it, we're going to be assaulted with demands for tips and offers of marijuana as soon as we land in Jamaica.

Tuesday, May 1, 2007

The hotel room has been booked for Hawaii. You may be asking yourself when I'm going to Hawaii. Well, self, the answer is... next year.

Jamaica this year. Hawaii next year.

I'm rich bitch.

Or something.

Definitely something.
