I got to Spain this morning. Or maybe it was last night. I don’t know. But I am here. I meant to send out a little something that I was leaving, but I forgot. Damn loose ends.
Anyway, I’ll try to throw in a post when I can, but now all I can think of is sleep and how bad I need it. Hopefully I’ll get some good pics from the trip.
That’s it! I’m out like a light. But not before I check out what happened with the NBA draft…
Ray Allen went where???!
I have the Instant Media application that will download video podcasts. One of the podcasts I’ve subscribed to is from Ripe TV. The podcasts are usually pretty good. And when I say pretty good, I mean they are usually about super model photo shoots. Nothing wrong with that!
So I decided to check out the website for Ripe TV. To my surprise, Kim Kardashian is “hosting” the web site. I must have been out of the loop for a while. When did this happen? Anyway, from what I can tell, it’s more or less her telling you through a video what’s what with the site and the shows they have. I have to say that I dig Ripe TV, but Kim Kardashian is kind of hard to watch. To put it mildly, she’s not very graceful with the dialogue. In fact, she comes off as not having much brain activity at all. But let’s be realistic. We all know she’s not there because of her public speaking.
There is no denying that Kim Kardashian is smoking hot. It makes me kind of sad to think that she’s heading down the same road that her former buddy Paris Hilton paved the way for. And that road that I’m referring to of course is “Skank Boulevard”. And you have to laugh about the friendship fallout between Kardashian and Hilton. It’s like Hilton can’t take someone getting more looks than her. And Kim Kardashian will almost always get more looks than Paris Hilton. So the solution for Hilton on this front is to be friends with skanks of equal or less attractiveness. And with that last tidbit I have now explained the welcoming back of Nicole Richie into Hilton’s life.
So my buddy Brian threw a surprise 30th birthday party on Saturday night for his wife Mary Kate. A nice sized group was there to celebrate. Plenty to drink. Excellent food. Good music (until Nick put in his Celine Dion’s Greatest Hits cd). Even got to enjoy a cigar. But the obvious hit of this party was Japanese. Yes, I’m referring to the Nintendo Wii. And now I want one.
Here’s Spray getting the digital crap kicked out of him in boxing.
Brian got the Wii about 2 weeks ago and has been raving about it ever since. Everybody enjoyed it. We bowled. Played tennis. Golfed. Played home run derby. I was impressed! So the Wii has now made it on my list of things to buy.
One negative thing to note. You know how I’ve had a sore right shoulder for a couple of weeks? And of course I’ve been meaning to go to the doctor about it but due to my stubborness/laziness have yet to make an appointment. Well, when doing the home run derby on the Wii Saturday night, I tweaked it again. The damn thing was starting to feel better too. So, take this advice. Don’t jack with the Wii when you have a jacked up appendage. Out!
Ok. This is the last post regarding the Spurs and winning the 2007 title. Time to move on…
So my good friend Jenny sent me a PaloozaHead. Don’t know what it is? Check it out right here. Funny, Jenny. Very funny. But at least those of you that give me hell for being Latin and not being able to dance can lay off now. I look like Baryshnikov out there. Or at least my head does.
So then I see another email from Jenny proclaiming “Spurs Suck!”. Hmmmmmmmmm. How should I take that? You see, myself being a San Antonio guy, and Jenny, being an L.A. girl, don’t always see eye to eye. And I’m not referring to her vertically challenged situation. It basically breaks down like this: I don’t like the Lakers. And Jenny hates the state of Texas.
So I’d have to say if indeed the Spurs suck, after winning the 2007 NBA championship, then at what level of suck are the Lakers? Especially when their best player/rapist is doing everything he can to abandon ship? Do the Lakers suck the sucky teams? Or do they simply suck so hard that they actually blow? Who knows. But I’ll take “suck” over whatever the Lakers are.
By the way, remember the movie “Wedding Crashers”? Remember when the crazy sister is throwing a tantrum at the wedding reception in front of her father (played by the always smooth Christopher Walken)? I kind of see Kobe Bryant holding his breath and stomping his feet in front of owner Jerry Buss. Grow up, Kobe. Grow up.
I can’t tell you how long I’ve been a Jessica Biel fan. Because I don’t know. But I can tell you that if she keeps going with pics like to go along with her role in the Adam Sandler-Kevin James gay marraige flick, then I may just challenge someone for the presidency of her fan club.
I remember when Jessica Biel was on 7th Heaven. For those of you that don’t remember, 7th Heaven was a show based on a minister and his family. Very family oreiented and very family friendly. Also known as dull. Well, I’m starting to think of the whole Catholic girl syndrome thing, or whatever it’s called. You know what I’m referring to.
When a girl, such as a minister’s daughter, is sheltered all her life and when she finally gets free of that she breaks out and goes wild in a big way. I think that Jessica Biel is a byproduct of this. Constantly out to show the world she is nothing like the character she played on TV. Although we all know this by now, I can only hope she thinks we need more convincing in the future.
By the way, does anyone know what her tattoo is of? I’m not a fan of tattoos, but that one almost looks acceptable. In fact, I’m blind to it.
This past Sunday they aired the Robot Chicken Star Wars special. I missed it, but thanks to YouTube, I just finished watching it. And it was great! Check them out below. Pretty damn funny!
I laughed pretty hard at the part with the alien that gets his arm cut off in the cantina. It kind of shows another side to him. Enjoy them while you can. You know how videos don’t last too long on YouTube these days.
My shoulder is killing me.
I saw the writing on the wall a few years ago. The clear cut sign that I was getting old. You know what that was? Here it is: When you can’t do a physical acitivity anymore without taking the time to properly stretch. The results of not stretching being about 3 days of soreness. Wow. I remember the days when I could jump up and do just about any activity on a whim and not worry about the consequences the next day. I miss those days. Getting old sucks.
So a couple of weeks ago I “tweaked” my shoulder making a throw while playing softball. It didn’t seem like much at the time since I always seemed to have a sore arm after every game. Usually after two days, that was the end of it. No more pain. But here we are almost exactly two weeks from when I first hurt it and it is still hurting me. So much so that sleeping has become a problem when I roll over on it. So I am looking to make a doctor’s appointment today and get it checked out.
Now, I’m a fairly active guy. I run. I play basketball. I play softball. I bike. I think that might add up to doing more than your average 31-year-old. I do those things because I enjoy them. Any benefits, like staying in shape, are just bonus for me. So needless to say, if the shoulder is bad enough that I have to cut out a couple of those activities, I’m going to be miserable. Especially since I already paid the fee for softball and we were only two games into the season. Getting old really sucks.
We’ll see what the doc says. Hopefully I just need to rest it. By the way, I have friends that have told me to ice it down and to apply some heat to it. Or vice versa. Something like that. Well, that sounded like a lot of work. So I did the next best thing. Icy Hot. Makes sense, right?
