life moves pretty fast....

...if you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. Good point there Ferris. Can't believe it's already October, it seems like just yesterday we got back from the honeymoon. Oh well time to bust out the tombstones, dismembered hands, and hanging bats. And after I clean out my car, I'll get to decorating the house for Halloween....

the social event of the season....

So after 13 years of chasing after and waiting on the woman of my dreams, Linda and I finally tied the knot on July 25th, 2009. I had originally thought the 13 year long courtship was painstakingly stressful, but that was nothing compared to the planning and executing of our wedding. I don't know how many times the topic of eloping to Vegas came up between me and Linda...but after all the headaches, all the planning, tasting, rehearsing, spending...the big day came out even better than we could have ever imagined. Who knew weddings could be so fun, especially when you're the ones getting married?

Towards the home stretch of the wedding planning, we were constantly bombarded with the warnings of "expect something to go wrong." I guess this advice was to help protect us so that we didn't set ourselves up with too high expectations or something or other. But I'm glad to say this warning completely went out the window the day of the wedding. With the exception of Bevmo delivering the booze almost 2 hours late for the reception, everything went to plan and worked out perfectly(although Bevmo being late wasn't necessarily a terrible thing, especially when we have friends and family who can care less if the beer is a little warm, as long as there's booze inside).

So you may ask the same question that I imagine every newlywed couple ponders after the dust has settled... Was it all worth it? Did the day live up to your expectations and be all it could be like the movie Iron Man, or did it crash, burn, and fail miserably like Transformers 1 and 2?

It was.

More pics of the wedding and honeymoon to be uploaded to facebook the meantime, here is a pretty damn snazzy slide show put together by our photographer, David Crane. Enjoy!

(Plug time... visit if you are interested in his work. I definitely recommend him)

billy mays really grinds my gears

Ugh. I really can't stand watching this guy's infomercials on TV. Why does he feel the need to shout so loud into the camera to advertise his new little burger maker thigamajig? Does he have an awesome auger stuck up his ass?


RIP Billy Mays.....

when it really does pour sometimes

Mexico gets a pretty bad rap sometimes...First the rampant drug war, then the swine flu, now a 6.0 earthquake in Acapulco.

Does someone up there have it out for Mexico? Maybe it's retribution for the boy band Menudo, Ricky Martin, Rico Suave, etc....

it just doesn't add up...

Wait a darn if time travel made is possible by the flux capacitor, and Marty's DeLorean had the only flux capacitor when he returned from the wild wild west in part 3, and that car was destroyed by the freight train...then how did Doc create a time traveling choo choo train??? Sure it runs on steam Doc, but how'd you muster together enough parts to create a new flux capacitor back in the wild wild west when gasoline wasn't even invented? hmmm??? (He found the right parts to make Jules and Verne no less...heh heh.)

It's really hard to find a good time travel movie that doesn't have shoddy script writing...shame on you Zemeckis!

Clinton brought rhythm... Obama has brought SOUL to the white house! C'mon, racial stereotyping aside, you have to admit most of our darker skinned brothers have that intangible "soul," otherwise why would Don Cornelius be hosting Soul Train so many years?

What's wrong with a little Isley Brothers blasting from the front lawn on a sleepy Sunday morning? Or some dubs on the presidential limo? Maybe that's what our country needs, a change of attitude, a change of pace.

One thing is for certain, it can only get better, or worse. And after W, chances are it is going to get better. A LOT better. It's like having a spelling bee, and you're stepping up to the mic right after the dyslexic kid finished. Like shooting fish in a barrel, or winnie the pooh scoring some honey.

It's gonna be easy. Easy like Sunday morning.......

I'm not a very smart man but...

Seriously, what is the world coming to when you can crash a jetliner into a river...and be called a HERO?

Maybe I'm missing something here. Is it because the plane could have crashed someplace else like a nearby hospital and caused tremendous chaos? Or missed crashing into a field like the spaceship from MIB? (although, that would have been kinda cool to see though). Well, my line of thinking must be a little bit off, because landing a plane in water is apparently the way to go.

Well, I guess as the saying goes, any landing you can walk away from is a good one. Especially if all aboard the plane survived and are "ok." Wait, one lady broke BOTH her legs. But technically she's "ok" cuz she's still alive....wuuuuuut???

On a side note...Ann Coulter and Nancy Grace. I mean come on now. When are people just going to ignore these 2 pompous biatches. They are not any authority on anything in the least. They are just self absorbed media whores who intentionally say things that they know will offend people, just so they can cause a ruckus, get media attention, and pawn off more books. We would only be so lucky that Ann is against there being single mothers in the world, because her only option to reproduce and infest the gene pool would be to BECOME a single mother. I mean who in their right mind would marry her, let alone allow her to procreate?

Here's a pic from the LBC taken over the xmas holidays...enjoy
