The Colorado Avalanche buries the Dallas Stars

All I have to say is...

BOO, Stars!

I'm so pissed that I can't even think on the bright-side and say, "There's always next year."

Damn you Stars. Damn you to hell!

The Dallas Stars FINALLY take a game in their series

Holy macaroni!

The Dallas Stars won a playoff game. A 4-1 win. Now they only have to win the next three to win the series.

No worries. Two other teams have done it in the NHL: once in 1942 and the other in 1975. That’s about a thirty year gap so I guess it is about time for another miraculous come back...maybe.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed but I don’t think it’s going to happen.

Illness alert!

There is a dangerous virus being passed electronically, orally and by hand. This virus is called Work-Overload-Recreational-Killer (WORK).

If you receive WORK from any of your colleagues, your boss or anyone else via any means DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private life completely.

If you should come into contact with WORK put your jacket on and take two good friends to the nearest bar. Purchase the antidote known as Work-Isolator-Neutralizer-Extractor (WINE) or Bothersome-Employer-Eliminator-Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.

You should forward this warning to 5 friends. If you do not have 5 friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.

Proof of global warming...

New camera purchase - Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT 350D

I broke down and nervously purchased a new digital camera. As the title says, I bought a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT 350D with accessories. I was nervous because this is an inexpensive expensive digital SLR. Expensive for me but inexpensive for others, I guess. The camera with kit lens is like $799 at most places online or like $100 more at Best Buy or other local camera sellers. It does come with a $100 MIR so it now becomes $699. If you want accessories, that brings the price back up.

I've been wanting a digital SLR for a while. I want to get into photography personally but if it turns some profits professionally as well, I'm not against that. I have two digital cameras already but they wouldn't allow me to do things I want to do because of limited zooming, no manual focus and the such. They are nice cameras. One was top of the line HP 2.1 megapixel like eight years ago and the other is a Canon SD500 (or like that) which is a 5 megapixel with a few more features than the HP. Both great cameras for the everyday snapshot. I wanted more.

So, I came into some financial aid money that I could possibly use for this purchase instead of PAYING OFF or DOWN some credit card bills like I originally planned. I also wanted a rocking laptop. I was looking for a desktop replacement laptop but I would still keep my desktops. As mentioned, I just wanted a rocking laptop.

I pondered and pondered, waited and waited, for a sign that told me I should purchase this laptop. The first sign was when I got my financial aid money but I wasn't totally sold on the purchase. It would have wiped out 2/3 of the money and there was no real dent to make in my credit card debt with the remaining 1/3.

I waited some more and a new sign arose but not for the laptop. I saw an entry on the Fresh Deals blog that had the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT at Amazon for like $759 - $100 Canon MIR and free shipping making it a pretty worthy deal to check out.

I was at work when I received this "sign" and it just happened that a coworker of mine that I helped purchase a digital camera came in my office and said she needed me to do some research to find her another digital camera and she wanted one where you could interchange the lenses. What luck for her, huh?

She purchases the camera from Amazon buys some additional accessories like a 2GB Compact Flash Card, a 75mm-200mm extra lens and some lens filters. Anyway, she was anxious to get her new toy and so was I since I wanted to see how it was before I purchased it.

Well, she had a death in the family and it was like a week and a half later before I got to see and play with her camera. I don't play with it strictly for my fun. I have to figure it out for her and explain the basics to her so she'll understand because she can't learn herself from the instruction manual. Funny, huh?

Anyway, during this week and a half, I couldn't wait. Temptation drew me in and the urge to spend the extra dough in my pocket was too great. I had to buy this camera. I decided I concede to getting one on eBay - new or slightly used. I figured if I didn't like it I could always re-eBay it and get my money back. Turns out this is a very popular camera and eBay was no exception to its popularity.

I watched a few auctions to see how the pricing went. Some people were spending more than the Amazon deal for the same exact item(s) and some were spending just a little more than the cost of just the camera. eBay buyers aren't very smart sometimes. Anyway, I found a few auctions by this one seller that seemed to be a pretty good deal. They were selling the camera with accessories: external flash, 1-6 GB Compact Flash card, USB card reader, 3 filters, wide-angle lens, additional 70-300mm lens, regular case, hard aluminum case, table tripod, regular tripod and a lens cleaning kit. The particular auction I was looking at had a 4GB compact flash card for $1,118.00. Quite a bit above the $699 that originally caught my eye but I think worth it because of all the stuff you got with it. The 75-200mm lens my coworker bought was $193+s/h, 2GB flash card was like $100+s/h, the filter kit was around $30+s/h and then she bought a case locally. So you figure she spent around $1,023 where as I should have spent $1,118. Again, it was a sweet deal.

I used the "Buy It Now" option as it was the only option. I called the company to pay and their sales/cust.svc. guy sold me a couple of additional items. All pretty much needed of course. I purchased an additional "professional" long-lasting battery for $69.99 (originally $89.99 but had a 30% coupon) and a 5-year extended warranty for $199.99 (originally $245 but another coupon). With these "upgrades" I was upgraded to a PRO wide angle lens, PRO filter kit, PRO flash and 2-3 day shipping.

Good times, huh? Are you feeling the excitement too!? LOL!

Anyway, I am anxiously anticipating my new toy. The laptop purchase has been thrown to the "wants" pile especially since I have two other older ones but they aren't desktop replacements.

I want my toy NOW!!

Damn Dallas Stars!

I know I shouldn't bad mouth the team as a loyal, long-term fan but I just want to yell, scream and throw things because of the the Dallas Stars' lack of enthusiasm to at least win ONE game of a playoff series!

I just don't see that they want it! I can't explain to you the anger and disappointment I feel. Yeah, I know it's just a game and it doesn't affect me directly. I should move on but all I can think is what sports am I going to watch if the Stars falter on Friday?

I guess there is always the Dallas Mavericks. They are kicking ass right now and basketball is WAY better than baseball.

I'd like to see the Stars pull the most amazing comeback win in NHL history but I'm just not confident in their desire to want to win. I think I want them to win more than they themselves do.

Oh least I can cry myself to sleep...

Oh my GAWD! The Stars suck!

At this time, I'm ashamed to be a Dallas Stars fan.

I can't believe the poor play that is going on during their playoff ass-romping they are getting from the Avalanche.

They started looking a lot better when it seemed like they were playing like they wanted to win. After they were already down 3-0, they started skating harder, playing harder, hitting harder. It's called desperation hockey. That's the way they should play the whole game, every game!

They even took the lead for 4-3. Then the Stars from game 1 showed back up. They lost that intensity and the Avs scored on a shot that should have never gone in AND it was a shorty. Unbelievable!

Marty Turco is not going to shut up his critics about him not being a playoff goalie. So far, he's shown that he still lets in the easy ones that even a 10-yr-old goalie could stop!

Now, I can't completely blame him because the defense is playing piss poor but that's when you have to rely on your goalie even more and so far Turco hasn't backed them up so well.

I'm just an angry hockey fan, Stars fan, and I want my team to win. If the bastards could just hear me yelling through the TV, I'm sure I could motivate their lazy asses!

Stanley Cup Playoffs - Dallas Stars vs Colorado Avalanche

Alls I gotta say is that Turco sucked but the Stars SUCKED all around! They started out okay with two quick goals to make it 2-0 but then gave up five straight. They lost because the defense, especially that shit-for-brains Zubov, was freakin' lazy! They had like three power plays and got like two shots on goal total for those power plays. A 5-2 loss is unacceptable in a playoff series. They are supposed to be closer...most of the other series were.

Yes, I am a bitter, bitter man! If they'd listen to me when I yell at the TV, they'd probably get a win under their belt!

Better luck next time you lazy bastards!

Local college student goes mental...

...story doesn't even make it into the campus newspaper. Probably because the student only hurt himself and slight damaged a couple of cars. But his ass bled all over the place.

This is a recap as written by my mother-in-law's husband (easier than me writing my own description) which both just happen to live five lots up the street from me. We both live in university-owned housing and this is an email he sent to a landlord that owns a house on the block where this all started...
A student visited your tenants at [blah blah], freaked out, dove through a window on the west side of your house, and ran screaming into your front yard.

Friends of the student and/or your tenants tried to restrain him, but he ran across the street, screaming, tripped on the curb, got up, ran to a car and started beating on the car--denting and bloodying it markedly.

He then ran to a second car parked on the same side of the street--this happens to be my stepson-in-law and stepdaughter's van--beat on that for a while, again bloodying and denting it pretty well. He ran screaming into the backyard of my stepson-in-law, rolled in the grass, and bled all over the fence, the air conditioner unit, the side of the house, and who knows what else.

One police officer said he got into the alley for a time. The student managed to get back to [the street]. By this time the police had arrived and several officers subdued him on the lawn of one of the houses several doors down the street from your house.

I got home about 3 p.m. (My wife had called me during this incident to ask me to get home.) There were several police cars on [street] and an ambulance. Most neighbors were assembled in their front yards, talking and watching.

The [local] police service # for this incident is ##-#### and the officer who gave this to me is ["Mr. Police Officer]. They don't take requests for incident reports over the phone. I will pick up a copy in the morning, scan it, and e-mail it to you. The phone number for [local] Police Victim Liaison is ### ###-####.

One [local] police officer mentioned that the ambulance folk indicated the student was not having a diabetic fit but had too much Ritalin in him.

Another neighbor on [the street] who saw it all, a retired police officer, indicated that the crazy look of the student's eyes suggested he was probably on drugs.
Check out some pictures here. I got there after the guy had been subdued and taken away. Bummer.

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Smallville

I've been meaning to post these pics from a while ago but am just now getting around to it. I don't have anything witty or crafty to say (as if I ever do) but I just thought I had to share...

Jennifer Love Hewitt was on Tyra Banks' talk show some time ago. I think I need a talk show so I can get big-breasted actresses to cup their breast for/with me. I definitely missed my calling...

Some people wonder why I watch Smallville. Need I say more?

It's not OCD. I promise!

I tend to sort M & Ms by color before eating them, then I eat one color at a time but I eat the odd numbers first. For instance, if there are 7 green and 5 brown I will mix one green with one brown to eat them in an even number and at the same time leaves the green and brown numbers even.

I know it sounds OCD but I really started doing it because I would eat the damn M & Ms too fast. Before I knew it, I would go through an individual pack in seconds. So to slow down the gorge-fest, I'd sort by color, even the colors total numbers and then I'd eat them by color to extend my enjoyment of the chocolate-coated candy shell over a longer period of time.

Anyway, my kids and I stopped by Blockbuster today to pick up a couple of movies for them. I also bought them each a candy - the youngest got chocolate-covered raisins (basically Raisanettes but the off brand) and the oldest got gummi bears. They started chowing on them, each their own choice, and when they were done, my oldest brought the gummies to me separated by color.

I swear it's not OCD like me. I'm sure it was just boredom.

The new Jeep Wrangler 4-Door

It's like a mini-Hummer but WAY better! Really it looks like the old Jeep Scrambler but instead of just an extended bed, they added two doors on each side along the bed.

I may have to think about purchasing one of these. I may have to put my 1990 Wrangler "Old Betty" to rest! NOT! It's still functioning...barely.

I didn't like the Jeep Liberty which was supposed to be the "replacement" for the Wrangler. Whatever!

Jeep lovers and enthusiasts know the CJ/Wrangler series are the one and only JEEP!

I seriously may have to think about purchasing a new vehicle.

Is this Teri Hatcher or Lindsay Lohan?

Is it sad that Lindsay could look as "old" as Teri or is it good that Teri can look as "young" as Lindsay? Either way, they are both scary, anorexic-looking.

A co-worker got a pen stuck inside our printer. He started to try and remove the pen, but I told him we don't have time for that now, just put a note on the printer telling folks not to use it and then report it to the Help Desk. So he grabbed a piece of paper and scrawled on it. I left before he finished the note.

About 20 minutes later, one of my techs comes in laughing and says he was just in the lobby, saw a piece of paper on a printer and went to investigate.

Attached is what he found ...... sometimes things don't always come out the way you want them to......

In black you can read the word GOOD, in white the word EVIL (inside each black letter is a white letter). It's all very physiological too, because it visualize the concept that good can't exist without evil (or the absence of good is evil ).

The word TEACH reflects as LEARN.

In brown you can read ME, and when you look through you can read YOU.

Can you see why this painting is called optical illusion ? You may not see it at first, but the white spaces read the word optical, the blue landscape reads the word illusion. Try hard and see for yourself!

Don't You Dare Mess With Grandma!!!

This is a true story... An elderly lady in Florida did her shopping and,upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle.

She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her voice, "I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of my car!"

The four men didn't wait for a second invitation. They got out and ran like mad.

The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then it dawned on her why. She was in the wrong car.

A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station.

The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing.

He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four very pale men were reporting a car jacking by a crazy older woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed.

If you're going to have a Senior Moment, make it a memorable one....

More illegal immigration

I really can't understand the logic and thinking these stupid people are using to come up with such stupid ass ideas...
From the Dallas Morning News...the hope of the League of Latin American Citizens and other Hispanic leaders, who organized a massive rally that attracted up to 500,000 people to downtown Dallas on Sunday. To continue to illustrate the power that Hispanics exert on the U.S. economy, they have asked them to skip work and keep their wallets closed on Monday.
I guess these "leaders" don't realize that these people they are asking to not work came to America for that particular reason: to WORK for a "better" life. Freaking ignorant and arrogant pricks. These leaders won't be suffering. They will still get paid but the every-day-worker won't.

Do you really think the American economy will suffer from these Hispanics not working or buying? It's like computers. The world worked without them before and it could do so again. It would take getting used to, though.

Instead, the only people they are really hurting are themselves. These Hispanics don't go to work, they don't get paid, they don't eat, they don't get to spend money on "American" things, they don't get to send money back to Mexico and they don't get their name stenciled on the back of their car (really, in the Dallas/Ft Worth area you aren't Hispanic unless you have your family name on your back window, usually stenciled in calligraphy font) because they didn't work today so they have no money. They could also lose their job for skipping out on work. The repercussions are just as bad for the protestor as it is the business or businesses.

So get a freaking clue you Hispanic leaders! Think of a better way to get your point across, ya freakin' morons!
More from the news...a clerk at a small grocery story and taqueria at the intersection of Ross Avenue and Ashby Street. Through a translator, she explained that her husband and his co-workers were staying home from their jobs at a window factory.

They both wanted to support the cause, she said, but one of them had to work. “I didn’t want to come to work this morning but we needed the money,” she said.
The above quote 1) backs up my statement of how they "need the money" and 2)shows that there needs to be something done about immigrants in general. This woman needed a TRANSLATOR! What in the hell is that? You are in America. Granted we don't have a national language but learn to speak ENGLISH! It pisses me off that American business pretty much must have dual-language signage. One in English and one in Spanish. Fucking learn ENGLISH! Do the Germans, French, British, or any other freaking countries have signs in their native language and then Spanish? Fuck no!

Oh gosh, I could go on and on about the ignorance of our country, the people running it and the people in it. The American government doesn't make concessions for Weapons of Mass Destruction even if there are none but they'll make it easier for non-English speaking Mexicans in America to vote or talk to customer service over the phone (ya know, "please press 1 for English, para en Espanol numero dos"). Again, what the fuck is up with that!?

I've gotta stop before I burst a blood vessel.

I'm done!

Funny images from the web

I don't remember where I found this but I thought it was pretty funny.

Big screen movie showing at home - Top Gun

I’ve got sort of a ghetto-ass set up in my garage with a projector screen, projector and a stereo system that I can run the audio from the DVD player to with big speakers for an “entertainment system”. I have no room in my house and my wife won’t let me bring in the screen and/or set up the projector to hang from the ceiling or whatever. In the previous house and condo before that, we had a third room so I was able to do whatever the hell I wanted with that room. The wife had the house. I had my ONE room!

Anyway, I’ve seen all the movies in my collection but was wanting to watch a movie on it. I looked through my collection and decided to watch “Top Gun”. What a choice to watch on a big screen with “surround” sound.

I just thought I’d share because it brought back some memories of watching this movie about a million times on cable back in the day. But mainly I wanted to say, who didn’t cry when Goose hit his head (very unlikely) on the cockpit canopy? And then when Meg Ryan sees Maverick afterwards in the waiting room and she just wails…man, I could have cried myself to sleep.

A cardiologist died and was given an elaborate funeral. A huge heart covered in flowers stood behind the casket during the service.

Following the eulogy, the heart opened, and the casket rolled inside. The heart then closed, sealing the doctor in the beautiful heart forever.

At that point, one of the mourners burst into laughter. When all eyes turned to him, he said, "I'm sorry, I was just thinking of my own funeral...I'm a gynecologist."

That's when the proctologist fainted.

Prior to her trip to Texas, Buffy (a New Yorker) confided to her
co-workers she had three goals for her trip to the Lone Star State:

1. She wanted to taste some real Texas Bar-B-Que.

2. She wanted to take in a bona fide rodeo. And..

3. She wanted to have sex with a real cowboy.

Upon her return, the girls were curious as to how she fared.

Let me tell you, they have a tree down there called a Mesquite and when
they slow cook that brisket over that Mesquite, it's ooooh so good. The
taste is unbelievable!

And I went to a real rodeo. Talk about athletes those guys wrestle
full grown bulls! They ride horses at a full gallop, then jump off the
horses and grab the bull by the horns and throw them to the ground! It
is just incredible! They then asked,

Well tell us, did you have sex with a real cowboy?"

Are you kidding? When I saw the outline of the condom they carry in
the back pocket of their jeans, I changed my mind!"

It only took them three straight losses to get it but they finally did with a win over the Anaheim Mighty Ducks on Thursday night.

Now all they have to do is perform like champions in the playoffs and bring Dallas home another Stanley Cup!

Fortune cookie fortune

We went out to eat at Pei Wei for dinner because my dumb ass left the refrigerator door open all night and all the food in the fridge went bad. Thank goodness the freezer was still working. Had some steak I am going to use to make some teriyaki this weekend and I would have been even more pissed at my stupidity! Anyway, this is my fortune...

I think my wife would have something to say to deny these words of wisdom.

She doesn't know that secretly I am a very nice person...just not to her (I kid).

Cartoon Network and Boomerang

I am home today from work with sick kids. They are both sick. One has been sick and home from school since last Friday. The other has been sick but able to go to school until today—came home after school yesterday and was quickly burdened with a fever or 101. I feel for them when they are sick but I’m pretty much helpless. I can just sit and listen to them cough, sniffle and complain about being sick and having to take the icky medicine. Oh well, at least I get to sit with them today to help make them feel a little more comfortable.

I had to stay home because the wife teaches Tuesday and Thursday and she already canceled class on Tuesday. Her class has an exam that was scheduled for today but she pushed it back until next Tuesday because of the cancellation. Anyway, I had class today but I am able to miss it even though I prefer not to. Luckily, it’s an easy introduction to computers course so minimal studying is required on my part. I’m actually supposed to be typing up my 1-page homework assignment for the computer lab tomorrow but I decided to type a bit.

Mainly I wanted to speak of how funny it is to see my kids watching some of the same shows I did when I was a child, and that was some time ago. On the Cartoon Network, they have this program called Boomerang. It basically plays all the old cartoons and some new ones of the same cartoons that I watched some 20+ years ago.

Shows like Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes, The Banana Spits, Scooby Doo, The Snorks, The Smurfs, The Jetsons, Yogi Bear, The Flintstones, Marvin the Martian, Atom Ant and some others. It’s just amazing to me that these goofy cartoons have stood the test of time and now my kids are enjoying them like I did. Those are truly the best cartoons/shows not this Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon shit!

Anyway, just thought I share that random thought.

Return of Billy Ray Cyrus

My kids have been watching a new show on the Disney Channel. It's about a 14-yr-old teenager who is a singer, with a songwriter father and a weird brother. I'm not sure the whole concept of the show. I just noticed that the father was Billy Ray Cyrus - yes, "Mr. Achy Breaky Heart" has moved from PAX TV to the Disney Channel. The 14-yr-old girls is his real-life daughter. I'm not sure if the boy/son is any relation to the Cyruses. The show is called Hannah Montana.

I am expecting to see "Hannah Montana" cut a record deal shortly like every other freaking child "actor" on the Disney channel. I quoted actor because the "acting" done on some of the shows is really piss-poor like the "Raven-clan" but it's good enough to capture the attention of young children, I guess.

We had Hilary Duff, Christie Carlson Romano, Raven, Raven's guy friend on her show, and two girls that have been doing a show and movies together on Disney. Obviously, Disney is starting to be synonymous with getting a singing deal!

Sign your kids up for the Mickey Mouse Club folks, it could be promising down the road.

What do these eyes say to you?

Jack FM is a local radio station in Dallas, Texas that plays songs from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and Todays. There are no DJs although they do have recorded "interludes" between songs and/or commercial spots.

Today I heard a particularly amusing interlude...
What's with all this talk about illegal immigration? I didn't know it was such a big deal for space aliens to come to earth.
Now, that's funny.

A spoon-fed brat just doesn't get it

Below is an article from a couple of weeks ago that was printed in the Southern Methodist University campus newspaper, the Daily Campus. It was written by an SMU junior who obviously hasn't ever worked hard for something, purchased it, were told you owned it and then had it taken away from you without your permission. That's why I refuse to buy a house. Ever heard of eminent domain? They lead you to believe you own something but they can take it back if they deem it necessary. Oh, and they'll give you a "fair" price for it. Not!

Anyhow, if this youngster had a clue, she would have known that "old people were kicked out" of their homes that many have owned for decades. I know, I lived at the University Gardens complex for a few years as well. I met these elderly people. A neighbor above me had lived there since they were practically built. She got her undergrad at SMU and decided to remain in what was considered on-campus living.

I knew another woman, younger than I by a few years or so, that actually worked at SMU. She lived in her grandfather's condo that he's owned for a couple of decades. He was an undergrad, her father was an undergrad and she was an undergrad and also got her MBA. Her grandfather sold the condo. She moved elsewhere.

SMU had these condominiums condemned as unsafe to be lived in unless something like $23M worth of renovations were made. It's cheaper to close it down than renovate. It's funny though how there are some apartments about a block or so north of University Gardens that are way worse than the UG condos but they haven't been condemned. Trust me, I've lived in those too! In the long-short-term plan, I believe those apartments will cease to be habitable as well. What's worse is that both these locations were/are fully habitable as long as there isn't another purpose for which the University needs the land.

I live in a rental house. It's a nice, quaint house. I've got more cracks in the walls that I NEVER got in the apartments or condos. The cracks showed up after the 3-day raining we got two weekends ago in my living room, dining room and bedrooms. That's why building houses in Texas sucks. The houses always shift, settle or move after hard rains or just because. But this is considered habitable?

Anyway, the article just once again proved to me that many of the "spoon-fed" college kids at SMU truly are ignorant to the world around them and what it really means to work for something besides coaxing Father to buy that new Razr cell phone.

I bet this "journalist" was listening to her iPod Mini while drafting her story. I bet if we took that away from her she'd get 1/100th of what the point Mr. Vodicka is trying to make. Then again, she'll probably just ask Mummie or Dattie to buy another one since SHE herself probably didn't buy the first one!

I'm done!

This is why American tennis has gone down the drain. You can see him quaking in his Nikes. He had SO much potential. Maybe he'll be another Agassi and have a comeback.
