Mother Nature has a sense of humor. It was warm enough yesterday to not have to wear a winter coat, but then this crap. 7dayFULL I hate living in the Midwest with a passion.  I want to go back to TX but hell, even they are getting snow.  The bad thing about it snowing, just as it is now, is that people want to drive like fkn idiots.  There are three rules to remember when driving in snow. 1) Dont get hit. 2) Dont hit someone else. 3) Drive.  Some people want to drive like they are tip toeing into the kitchen at midnight.  I’m all for being safe of course, but damn if you don’t go you’re going to get stuck.

Stuart Scott passed away today.  I was never a fan of his really, but he was a good personality for ESPN. Glad that he was able to make it through the holidays for his daughters.

10891459_10152947488434326_7544235468520997051_nBack to this bullshit snow.  I look out of this Starbucks window thinking, why the fk am I here and not in the comfort of my bed? And of all the bullshit things I buy, why haven’t I bought a car starter?  It is nice though being here and not having anyone around me.  Just me, Venti pumpkin spice latte and Dido.

didobioI played Dido’s CD nonstop when I was overseas.  I remember my tent mate yelling at me to shut it off cause I played it so much.  This would be played in my tent and Outkast would be playing everywhere else.  At post..outkast.  On our way to Kuwait City..outkast.  Chowhall..Outkast.  They had a song, “Bombs Over Baghdad” that the Kuwait’s would dance to.  One of the Kuwait Officers heard me play it, reached in his shirt and pulled out a cross necklace.  He kept saying “SEE, I’M CHRISTMAS, I’M CHRISTMAS!”  I said you mean Christian.  “YES, CHRISTMAS!”  Okay then. lol

I go back to work tomorrow, after a 2 week vacation.  Honestly, I don’t want to go back. Not because of the kids, I love them and their craziness.  But because I don’t get paid shit really for all the stress we have.  I know, something is better than nothing but I could seriously go work at Aldi’s and bag groceries and make more than what I do now. I’m hoping to get a phone call tomorrow with some good news that will better this situation.

Break Free by Ruby Rose= beautiful song, check her out.

Let me ask a question.  In life, your main objective is to have kids and pass on that bloodline.  What if you can’t have kids?  Then what is the meaning to life?  You wake up, eat, shit, work, sleep, repeat.  You really don’t have a purpose anymore.  The bloodline stops with you.  If you were fortunate enough, your parents tried to raise you in a way in which you will be a great parent to your own kids and pass on traditions. I think about all the things I was able to give my parents, everything but a grandchild.  When my sister got pregnant at 15, I had some animosity toward her kid.  You mean to tell me God will give a kid to a 15 year old girl, but not two adults who have good jobs, are caring, and want kids?  I think that’s why my belief in God is so null.  I believe Jesus was a man who did walk this Earth. I don’t believe the miracle stuff though.  I’m just not buying the whole God created man and the universe shit.  Maybe it’s the fact that I had to go to a Catholic School and the shit was stuffed down my throat, that now I’m like eh.

Well folks I think its time for me to go.  There is a creepy dude sitting across the room staring at me like he wants my nuts.

1/1/2015

2015, one year closer to death.  For the first time in about 13 years, I stayed home.  It was actually nice just sitting there with my wifey, knowing that after the ball dropped, I could go lay in my own bed instead of driving home.  So what’s my new years resolution?  Not a goddamn thing.  Why disappoint myself? I want to lose weight, but I know that doing a resolution isn’t going to shed these pounds.  I want a higher paying job but I know that their are millions of people everyday looking for a job.

Christmas was nice.  I gave my wifey money for after xmas sales,which she took full advantage off.  We went to her parents house along with my sisters and my parents.  My wife bought me a tattoo gift certificate which i’ll be using Jan 7 for this awesome sauce. Clown from slipknot.  10881425_10152924732574326_1621503281_n

On Dec 23rd, I took my dad to the Blackhawks game for his xmas present, surprised him with row 1 seats.  10881876_10152914591809326_6209723402504674191_n As you can see, I wore my Blackhawks Lucha Libre mask.  I get a kick out of people coming up and asking for pics.  It was our first and last time along the glass.  Don’t get me wrong, they are awesome seats, but true fans sit in the 300 section.  Granted, if I win the lottery, you bet your ass i’ll be front row lol.  I got them because I didn’t want to regret not getting them someday.  I mean, my grandpa is 76 years old right now and I wonder if there are things that my dad regrets not being able to do with him now because of his age.  I didn’t want that for me.  So, one day I woke up and told my wifey, I’m getting my dad and I row 1 tickets.  The tickets were crazy expensive but memories are priceless.

I’m sitting here in my usual typing spot, Starbucks.  The girl doing my drink was asking me some questions about my two week vacation, for some reason she remembered. Anyways there was a lady behind me who chimed in about how she is retired and if you are bored, its your own fault.  I was like..bitch, da fuq, nobody was talkin to you. Yes, I said da fuq, which for those unfamiliar with slang is “the fuck”.  Stay in your own lane lady.

Watched the Winter Classic today with my uncle, dad and grandpa.  Hawks lost it via a goal in the last minute.  O’well, can’t win them all.  Plus when you go 1 for 6 on the powerplay, you deserve to lose.  Just shoot the damn puck towards the goal.  Anyone can coach from their couch though.

Do you guys remember the saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”?  When the fuck did that get thrown out the window?  There was just another case of a kid who killed himself because he was being called names. My little niece has a mind of her own and i fkn love it, some other kids may think its weird or whatever.  I told her straight up, “if someone calls you a name, tell them to fuck off.  Go ahead, uncle robert will take the blame”.  I told her “don’t be a follower, be a leader”.  It’s true though, kids fell like they have to fit in all the time.  Think about this.  Remember growing up and someone would say “why can’t you be more like (insert name)?”  Look, it’s that shit right there that gives kids the idea that they have to meet a certain guideline on how to act.  Lets look at Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitts daughter, Shiloh.  Kid is 8 years old, wants to be called John and some people are in an uproar over it.  Get the fuck out of here.  If that kid wanted to be called Scooby fucking Doo, who are you to question it?  If people just minded their own goddamn business and stop worrying about what others are doing then maybe we wouldn’t have the problems we have.

Eat a Bowl of Dicks Award goes to … Al Sharpton.  Sharpton has more than $4.5 million in current state and federal tax liens against him and his businesses. How in the hell is he not in jail yet?  Does Obama have him on a leash that damn tight.  Plus this dick is a race baiter who got those two officers killed in New York.  The good Lord needs to do right and put Al and Jesse out to pasture.

I was reading a dumb article about how Back to the Future 2 got some things wrong about 2015.  Well no shit, it was a goddamn movie made in 1989.   Another thing is, how are you going to write about what they got wrong in 2015 when we are only a day into 2015.  Save the damn article for 2016.  I don’t blame the writer, I blame the one thinking it was okay to print it.

This 22 year old guy created a website called Skiplagged.com and is now being sued by a few airline companies.  Even bad publicity is good publicity.  This guy did nothing wrong with his site and made no salary/commission from it.  It’s actually a smart idea.  Lets say you live in new york and want to go to Chicago.  The ticket maybe is $700.  However if you put you want to go to Arizona with a layover in chicago, it will cost $550. This site will tell you that there is a layover.  So, just get off in chicago and don’t connect to Arizona.  I mean, its common sense but these guys are pissed about it.

The Stupid Mother Fkr Award goes to… All the parents that complained about this.  playdoh  You know what you saw, a dong.  Know what your kids saw, a fkn play doh dispenser.  Come on people, why must we over sexualize every goddamn thing? No kid opened up this package and thought, “well damn I just got a dildo for xmas”.

I jumped on the bandwagon and bought a turntable.  I’ve never owned one, but goddamn does vinyl sound good.  I understand the ease of having a cd or mp3, but it just seems that with vinyl, you hear what is meant to be heard. If that makes sense.  I purchased Slipknot, Dire Straits, Santana, Wu Tang, Outkast, and Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.

Alright, I’m done for now.  Remember, don’t let a hot date become a due date.
