A quick Happy Birthday to my Dad is in order.  Why?  Well yeah, it’s his birthday.  So, Feliz Cumpleanos, Pop.  I hope you have a good one.  God bless you and I love you.

These are the top 10 quotes of 2007, according to some big wig at Yale.


1. “Don’t tase me, Bro!” — University of Florida student Andrew Meyer on September 17, as he tried to stop campus police from throwing him out of a speech by Sen. John Kerry.

2. “I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and Iraq and everywhere like such as and I believe that they should our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. or should help South Africa and should help Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future for us.” — Lauren Upton, the South Carolina contestant in the Miss Teen America contest in August.

3. “In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country.” — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s October comment at Columbia University in New York.

4. “That’s some nappy-headed hos there.” — Shock jock Don Imus comments about the Rutgers University women’s basketball team.

5. “I don’t recall.” — Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ repeated response to questioning at a congressional hearing about the firing of U.S. attorneys.

6. “There’s only three things he (Republican presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani) mentions in a sentence: a noun and a verb and 9/11.” — Sen. Joseph Biden, speaking at a Democratic presidential debate.

7. “I’m not going to get into a name-calling match with somebody (Vice President Dick Cheney) who has a 9 percent approval rating.” — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat.

8. “(I have) a wide stance when going to the bathroom.” — Idaho Republican Sen. Larry Craig’s explanation of why his foot touched that of an undercover policeman in a men’s room.

9. “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” — Biden describing rival Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

10. “I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history.” – Former President Jimmy Carter in an interview in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette newspaper.

I’m hoping someone comes out with a classic quote within the next 10 days. That would totally screw up Professor Ivy League’s list. I wonder if he’s sweating out the rest of December. Almost like you do when your team is up by 1 with little time left, and the other team has possession. Go, clock! Go!

This is truly amazing. I’ve never seen anything like this. The Trinity Tigers, needing a touchdown to win, do it by using 15 laterals! They end up beating the Millsaps Majors in a Div III showdown. Watch the video. This is freakin’ incredible.


Nice job, Trinity. You deserve lots of props. But you did have some luck. Luck combined with the most ridiculous defense known to man. Have these guys on Millsaps ever made a tackle before?? How can I describe this. Pathetic, Embarassing, Laughable, etc. No doubt their defensive coordinator is on suicide watch. He shoud go jump off a cliff. But he needs to take that entire defense with him. Yikes!

I bet you will watch the video more than once.

One duffle bag has been returned.  The other, still lost somewhere in the black hole that lost luggage gets sucked into.  My duffle bag that was returned wasn’t without damage.  Some clothes got some kind of mold growing on them.  The only moisture I found in the bag was from a shampoo bottle that busted open, and of course, got all over some clothes. 

I should stop complaining so much.  I am glad to get some stuff back, like my favorite flip-flops and jeans.  But I want ALL the stuff back.  It’s now been 18 days since the luggage was lost.  I still blame Continental Airlines for starting the screw-up domino effect.  We’ll see what they do to keep me as a customer.  I’ll keep you posted.

I’m back from Costa Rica!  And I desperately need to catch up on sleep.  I will be posting some pics tomorrow.

-Dave Q.

Well folks, I am heading out of town again. This time to Costa Rica to attend my cousin’s wedding. It’s supposed to be a surprise and I know that none of my family down there knows that this blog exists, so I don’t have any worries that my surprise may be blown.

My Spanish isn’t the greatest. In fact, it is straight up shameful. So it’s always a challenge when I visit family there, since so few of them speak any English. But I will do my best since I am the guest and I can’t imagine going to a foreign land and expecting them to speak my language. Whoa! Don’t want to get going on that topic!

I’ll be back on Monday. Hopefully I can get some good pics and post them in the photo gallery. Peace!

I guess I shouldn’t have been talking so much smack about Duke, because my team got punked today.  Notre Dame lost to 11th seeded Wintrhop.  Yeah, I don’t know who Winthrop is either.  But the beat the Irish by 10 points.

Karma.  That’s it.  Karma came back and bit me in the ass for the Duke post.  But I won’t complain.  It was worth it!

I went to the supermarket last night to get some food for my dogs, Max and Murphy. As much as I’d like to think of them as the fearless protectors of Quesada Manor, I know deep down if I were ever being burlarized they would probably hold the door open while the thieves carried out my big screen. Even though they are wimps, the law says I still have to feed them.

Max

Anyway, as I walked into the supermarket, I was reminded of the time of year it is. Giant heart shaped candy boxes and stuffed animals bombarding me left and right. It’s a time when men spend loads of money to remind their girls that they care about them. A time when single women wallow in self-pity while finishing off a gallon of Bluebell and watching reruns of Sex and the City. A time when single men rejoice, and laugh at other men in relationships. Oh yes. It’s Valentine’s Day. A day that I’m not a big fan of for plenty of reasons. Reasons I’ll be sure to explain next week.

On the positive side, this is really the last of the holidays I have to worry about for a while. I can finally start saving money again after this one. You see, I have family that starts having birthdays begining in September. One month after another. It wraps up with my little sister’s birthday in February. And since I like to splurge on gifts, it takes some time to “rebuild the financial empire”, if you know what I mean. So I see the light at the end of the Holiday tunnel.

In the spirit of St. Valentine’s, I found a couple of well used websites for this time of year that I’d like to share with you all. The people at Infidelity.com will follow your significant other around and gather evidence if they are being unfaithful or not, for a nominal fee. They are no doubt making a killing this time of year! And so is The Alibi Network. These guys help you with your infidelity. For example, if you tell your husband or wife that you need to go out of town on business, they will help provide you with the proof to support your claim of where you were. At least, that’s how I understand it.

So you have two resources here. One to help you cheat, the other to catch you cheating. And people say there’s no such thing as love…

Today's Deep Thought

  • To me, truth is not some vague, foggy notion. Truth is real. And, at the same time, unreal. Fiction and fact and everything in between, plus some things I can't remember, all rolled into one big "thing." This is truth, to me.
