The Lake House (2006)

The Lake House (2006).

I just finished watching this movie and I've come away from it thinking three things:

(1) The actual house on the lake in the movie is pretty darn cool looking. Although, I didn't see a fire place or central air and heating so it's got to get pretty damn cold in the winter and somewhat hot in the summer although it's probably easier to cool it off than heat it up.

(2) Sandra Bullock still looked fairly good but she is starting to show every bit of her 44 years (I think she's that old). In fact, I think she seemed a little butt heavy in the movie but the seemed to do a good job with the camera not catching it EXCEPT in the scenes where she wearing a negligee while opening the blinds in her apartment and you almost get to catch a silhouette of Sandra heaven.

(3) Keanu Reeves is definitely no longer Neo material. He's looking like his age as well and even looks more like when he played Jjaks Clayton from Feeling Minnesota. I guess after the success he's had you can look like whatever the hell you want! I remember when he was just a young'n in A Walk in the Clouds.

Oh well, once again, I have exposed too much of my gayness.

I'm gone!

I'm a fan of women accidentally or on purpose showing me their parts but...

There is a certain point where I would draw the line. I may have mentioned this before but I work on college campus. As such, I see a lot of bared flesh - bared for one reason or another. I am totally okay with that as long as it's tactful - meaning I don't need to see Big Bertha showing me her plumber's butt crack!

I am so happy for these girls that are confident in their looks and their body but I DO NOT need to see their confidence! No matter what they may feel about themselves, seeing cottage cheese outside of the cottage OR seeing their spare tire is not something the overwhelming public would like to experience!

There is a reason a spare tire is hidden or stowed away in a car.

I'm no spry little buck myself but I also don't walk around with my ass OR my spare tire showing! Maybe just a few shivers of gray hair but that's completely unavoidable.

Finals are approaching

Not that anyone really reads my blog or gives a shit but i've been pretty busy lately.

I have my final for my accounting 101 class coming up in a week and a half and right now I am no way fully confident of passing. It's a buttload of information to process since the last test AND the freaking thing is comprehensive on some stuff we learned earlier in the semester. She said that her final wasn't comprehensive in the sense that she would test us on shit we learned months ago. I think she lied!

Anyway, I'm a slacker at studying to begin with so I'm trying to start early. My final is next Friday and she said, "Expect to take a three-hour final." What the hell is up with that? Just because the time allotted is three hours doesn't mean she needs to have a final that takes the three hours. Dammit!

Well, I am at work so I'd better do something.

I will try to type something a little more meaningful later. Probably much later. I know you are all dying from the suspense. :-)

Email humor 11/21/2006

Are you a Democrat, Republican or Southerner? Here is a little test that will help you decide. The answer can be found by posing the following question:

You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, an Islamic Terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you. You are carrying a Glock cal 40, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?

Democrat's Answer:

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!
Does the man look poor or oppressed?
Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
Could we run away?
What does my wife think?
What about the kids?
Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?
What does the law say about this situation?
Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it?
Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?
Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?
Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?
If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
Should I call 9-1-1?
Why is this street so deserted?
We need to raise taxes, have paint and weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.
This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus.

Republican's Answer:


Southerner's Answer:

Click ..... (Sounds of reloading)
Daughter: "Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips or Hollow Points?"
Son: "Can I shoot the next one!"
Wife: "You ain't taking that to the Taxidermist!"

IN: Hot chicks on game shows

I am sitting here flicking through the channels when I came upon a new game show that's premiering tonight on ABC. It's called Show Me The Money with host William Shatner. Yes, Captain Kirk has gone from the big screen, to commercials, to Boston Legal, to a game show host!

The game show concept isn't too bad. It's just a spin on the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. The thing that gets me with these game shows are the extremely hot, fit, attractive, gorgeous, sexy, did I say HOT, dancers/assistants on the shows. Even on Deal or No Deal.

I don't know if this show will take off like 'Deal' but I don't mind the eye candy while it is still showing! I'll probably forget about it after it's over anyhow.

Is it pitiful that I could blow a load watching a game show?

Yippee! Farmers Branch sends a message to illegal immigrants

Again, I could give a shit about politics but I just can't stand stupid as mother truckers.

Check the whole story here
Farmers Branch on Monday adopted strict measures against illegal immigrants, requiring apartment renters to provide proof of citizenship or residency and making English the city's official language.

The City Council also unanimously agreed to let police apply to participate in a federal program that would enable them to check the residency status of suspects in custody and initiate deportation proceedings in certain cases.

The measures, believed to be the first of their kind in Texas, brought cheers from supporters but sparked anger among some Hispanics and other opponents that the action will cause further racial tension in the city.

Protesters gathered at Farmers Branch City Hall hours before Monday night's City Council meeting. Shouting matches periodically erupted outside the council chambers between supporters and opponents of the ordinances.

Some Hispanic activists said they will sue the city over the decisions.
First of all, for what are they going to sue? There have been no civil rights violations, no amendment violations whatsoever.

This isn't against LEGAL immigrants or Mexican naturalized citizens.

If these stupid "activists" would get the fuck off their high horses and realize that ILLEGAL immigration is a problem, maybe they'd realize that the city (hopefully the US government will follow) is trying to protect it's legalized citizens.

If it was up to me I'd refuse these illegal mothers everything. Would these activists willingly help a proven murderer, rapist, or thief?

Go cry on Vincente Fox's shoulder you whiny ass bitches!

Yes! I am an angry person!

I'm a comic chick perv

I was watching a couple of movies, Ultimate Avenger and Ultimate Avengers II. Obviously, they are animated super hero movies.

They had a couple of characters named Black Widow, Wasp and Betty Ross. The latter wasn't a super hero as much as she was just a hot scientist that used to be dating Bruce Banner before he became the Hulk.

Anyway, I remembered why I always liked Marvel Comics and animated movies...allow me to share my reasons.






Hogan obviously doesn't know best

I've been meaning to blog about this for some time but I've just been too damn busy this past few weeks or so.

Anyway, I remember watching the "reality" TV series, Hogan Knows Best. I was a regular watcher but I remember seeing an episode where Hogan's daughter, Brooke, is trying to start a singing career. They get some meeting with some producer (a black guy, can't remember his name) and Hogan says something to the effect that he doesn't want his daughter wearing slutty clothing to sell her singing. I recall the producer said something like you know wrestling and I know the recording industry. Hogan apparently didn't like this comment and said something about finding another producer.

I first commend Hogan for sticking to his guns about how his daughter would be potrayed but I don't understand how what she wears already around the house is much different to what she'd be wearing to promote her singing.

By the look of it, Hogan obviously wisened up to the fact his daughter NEEDS to dress provocatively because here is the cover of Brooke's CD. In fact, I think she's wearing even less than I would have expected from a father that was supposed looking out for his daughter.

In fact, here is a picture of Hulk and Brooke where it looks like Hogan is pointing to and bragging about the way his daughter is sexily dressed.

In my opinion, she NEEDS to dress like this to promote her music because that damn song, "About Us," is so gosh darn high-pitched and repetitive that I think only dogs can really hear it. Of course, I say her song is repetitive but I also realize that it is the same with just about every song these days. They write 6-8 lines of lyrics and repeat...interlude without lyrics...then repeat lyrics some more.

That's the quality of songs these days and they expect people to buy that shit? Maybe the pimple-faced, grillz-wearing, baggie-panted mo-fos who think they are cool when they really look like a bunch of hoodlums and idgits!

Holy shit, I sound like my father!

Email humor 11/04/2006

President Bush and Rumsfeld are sitting in a bar.

A guy walks in and asks the barman, "Isn't that Bush and Rumsfeld sitting over there?"

The bartender says, "Yep, that's them."

So the guy walks over and says, "Wow, this is a real honor! What are you guys doing in here?"

Bush says, "We're planning WW III."

The guy says, "Really? What's going to happen?"

Bush says, "Well, we're going to kill 140 million Muslims and one blonde with big tits.

The guy exclaimed, "A blonde with big tits?

Why kill a blonde with big tits?"

Bush turns to Rumsfeld and says, "See, I told you, no one gives a shit about the 140 million Muslims".

Oh no, not Doogie Howser!!!

07:46 PM CST on Friday, November 3, 2006
Associated Press

LOS ANGELES – Neil Patrick Harris is gay and wants to quell any rumors to the contrary.

"(I) am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest," Harris tells People magazine's Web site.

The 33-year-old actor said he was motivated to disclose his sexuality because of recent "speculation and interest in my private life and relationships."

Harris stars on the CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother. He started on TV as a teen, playing the namesake doctor on the series Doogie Howser, M.D.

Jessica Biel vs Kate Beckinsale

I was perusing more "gossip" web sites and found this "vote-off".

Jessica Biel vs Kate Beckinsale.
(click here to see more pics for comparison)


As one person stated in the comments, "NO! Don't make me choose!" I must agree with them. It's a very tough call. Both have the ASSets and both are mighty fine!

I think I can talk them into playing nice and have the fantasy-celebrity-threesome I've been looking forward to all my life!

After further review, deep thought and pulling out my hair, I think I have to go with Jessica Biel. I mean don't get me wrong they are equally gorgeous but I think Jessica has a more natural beauty to her - just barely.

Okay, I must have some alone time in the bathroom...."NO, Ma! I'm just pooping!"

An evening three-quarter moon

Head RIP Ti.Fiber 16g tennis Strings

I may have mentioned that I am an avid tennis player. I don't play as much as I used to or as much as I would like to but I do try to play at least once a week on Saturday mornings. Occasionally, I have daddy or family duties that interrupt my tennis Saturdays but I try.

As a tennis player, I am considered a power hitter with a lot of top spin. There is nothing like cranking a forehand down the line for the winner or smacking it directly at the player at the net (oh yeah, I typically play doubles on Saturdays with a group of guys I've been playing against for around 12 years) and watching him squeal like a pig while trying to dodge my purposefully placed shot at his nads!

Being such a player, I typically break a lot of strings even in with the infrequency of my play. I just haven't found a durable string other than my latest attempt with polyester. These polyester strings are durable but that's about it. I have a mixture of game play - 80% power and spin, 10% touch and precision. With the polyester, there is no such thing as touch. Every shot has to be hit with some power behind it otherwise a drop shot will be very short or a spin shot will be more like a grounder to third. I have to swing through EVERY shot otherwise it's like hitting the ball with a wooden ping pong paddle. My arm is tired after playing a few sets and that NEVER happens to me!

My favorite strings to play with in the past few years are called Head RIP Ti.Fiber 16g. They are a silver colored string and they have lasted me for months at a time. I just broke my last set a few weeks ago and I am lost because I'm stuck with choosing a shitty string or going to my un-favorite polyester purely for their durability. I've searched the world wide web for these RIP strings because they have been discontinued. Why you ask? Well, why would a company sell a string that rarely needs replacing. They can't make any money like that. You want people to buy strings and buy them often. Hence, they discontinue the quality string and leave us tennis players with crap - unless you are a professional who gets his/her strings for free anyway. I just can't justify paying $15+ for a set of strings that I will break in about 3-4 hours of play and I'm not hitting half as hard as the pros.

Anyway, if you come across a string called Head RIP Ti.Fiber 16g for sale at a reasonable price (I have found it for 11.99 but out of stock at one web store and $14.50 - up from $11.85 four days ago - in stock at another, please comment and let me know. I've looked and looked and these two are the best I can find, although I did find an entire 660 ft reel for $400. That's a little...a lot...out of my price range although that reel could contain at least 15-20 or so stringings.

Here's a picture of the string package.
