Disjointed, Discombobulated and Distressed.

November 30, 2006

I think that how you can sum things up. I have been in a funk, that and being busy has hampered my continuing assault on poor writing.

Well kids I did have a rant earlier in me earlier this week, but it has left me, for now.

I am going to try to get back to low brow comedy that you have come to expect.


Still sore.

November 28, 2006

Sorry another busy day to start back after a busy weekend. I hope everyone had a nice Turkey day. Mine was not too bad. Had a nice dinner with the good Mother-In-Law and then desert with the rest of the family. Well almost the rest of the family. It is a long rant and I am short on time.

I did a little of this, and a little of that. My weekend included a day of working on paving stones for a driveway. Nothing like 7 hours on Saturday, of being on my knees and hammers paving stones into place. Even as tough as it was, it was worth it and for a worthy cause. So right now I am still stiff, but my knees feel as bad a Jake Plummer. My knees are still warm to the touch, and it’s Monday. They are warm to the point that they just sparked some papers in the trash. So I have to get going and put it out.

I will try to do give a weekend wrap up tomorrow.


Free from the Basement!

November 22, 2006

It looks like I will not be locked in the basement anymore.

Yeah!

Sadly, there is a chance that I may not be employed here much longer.

????

I know, I know. But since Friday of last week things have altered some. Now it looks like the job I trained for is not mine any more. In fact they hired someone today. The job I thought I was originally going to fill, is now up for grabs. You see, I had to interview for that position Monday. Now if the key skill needed to obtain the position was sweating like Orson Wells at room temperature then I am in. I did sweat, but the interview went alright I have a lot worse. I think they have to talk to a couple more people. The major advantage I hold is that I have been working here for about a year, and they do not want to really have to train two new people. But them handing me the job is not written in stone, so I sit and wait.

Hey what are the holidays with out stress and anxiety?

Science Fiction.

I should not stress too much, things should workout, but I just needed to get that out.

I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend. I may be back with more musing, we shall see.


This Just In

November 21, 2006

Decency and good taste may still be alive in America.

Why, how, who?

O.J. “Special” canceled.

I never thought I would see the day that even FOX/ News Corp. would say that one of its projects was “ill-considered”.

But you know it must be really bad, if I agree with Bill O’ Reilly on something, and to quote Vincent Vega, “that’s a bold statement”.

Now the rumor going about is that before this decision came down, a group of FOX and News Corp. executives had been rushed to area hospitals, for complaints of pain. Thankfully after meeting with medical authorities, it was discovered that the pain was coming from something called a conscience. But a spokesperson for both FOX and News Corp. said that they are looking into a safe ways of removing it.


The weekend.

November 21, 2006

I am going to go out on a limb and say it kinda sucked. Other than it being around 85 degrees it sucked.


Panic at the Best Buy.

November 17, 2006

It looks like someone went all HALO on someones ass. Seriously, it is just a video game system. It is not going to change your life. It might, but most likely for the worst. Just kidding, but come on people it is video game system.

It makes me think, how did we get this far as species?

Mr. Darwin, another point against you sir.

Hey, don’t get me wrong, I love my video games. I have had my share: Atari 2600, Sega, Game Boy, PS and PS2. I have never felt the compulsion to get it the first day, or to hunt the most dangerous game while doing it.

Look the only time video games ever should get violent is when you have a win all sewn up in Tecmo Bowl and somehow you give up 90 yard TD with no time left, or if you playing NES wrestling and someones little brother finds a way to cheat and you can’t win. That is when it is alright for you can get violent. There is actually a leagl defense to justify the action. It is called “Broken Paddle” Defense. It is right up their with the “Chewbacca Defense”.

Now here is how it works. Let’s say I killed Conrad Bain after losing a close game of Sonic the Hedgehog. Here is how that legal tactic would work.

District Attorney: “Your honor the state would like to charge Mr. Boski for the 4th Degree Murder of beloved TV Dad Conrad Bain Along with charges that this man has wantonly abused grammar. Mr. Boski savagely attacked Mr. Bain with Sega game system and beat him to his a pulp. Then proceeded to write about it on his Blog o’ Fun. Which our forensic specialist will show is not fun, and most likely not even a real blog.

Judge: “So Council how will Mr. Boski plead to the charge of killing Conrad Bain?”

Hired legal gun from Jacoby and Myers: ” We would plead Not Guilty your Honor”

Judge: “On what grounds”

Defense: “Broken Paddle your Honor, Mr. Bain, knowingly allow Mr. Boski to use the broken paddle”

District Attorney: “Ah shit!”

Judge: ” Case Dismissed”

District Attorney: “Can we at least charge Mr. Boski with crimes against English and grammar?”

Defense: “Objection!”

Judge: “On what grounds?”

Defense: “Nothing, I just have always wanted to say that, but your honor, can Defense at least ask for a continuance, so I can cash this check?”

Judge: “Denied, Mr. Boski we will charge you with the other crimes.”

Mr. Boski: ” So I can guess where this is going to lead to.”

Judge: “Yep, Mr. Boski, you are getting the chair. I have tired to read some of the entries and I would be irresponsible to allow you to continue writing. Take him away.”

Mr. Boski:”Avenge me bloggers, Avenge Me!”

So in closing, the PS3 is not something worth getting shot for, now the Happy Days board game, I might take some shrapnel. But it is never cool to get violent over a video game. I have never done that, well okay, I once drew a knife on someone while playing Frogger, but I don’t want to talk about it.

So that is one to grow on.


For the "gentlemen" from South Carolina who are suing over their apperance in Borat.

November 15, 2006

I think the words of Dean Wormer fit,

Fat drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.”

Let me sidebar real quick. I had a friend that I worked with at the Mouse House. Who before his wedding, was out with his future wife’s parents. They were enjoying a some what pleasant meal. My friend was sensing that her parents were still a little tense. So when it came time for the fortune cookies he used that same line.

Thankfully there was still a wedding.

But back on Borat, now it seems everyone along with the buffoons mentioned above have their hand out over this movie. Even the Romanian town that filled in for Kazakhstan is suing. Sure it would be nice if they got a few more bucks, but they signed a release. So to paraphrase Borat he would say of the situation, “I got i-pod, so they got i-pod mini. Everybody know that i-pod mini’s are for girls. SUCCESS!”.
