2 guns beats a knife

On the way home from work today I heard a news article about a 72 year old man that was mugged by a 27 year old. The 72 year old man is an ex-marine as well as a golden glove winner. He beat the crap out of the mugger.

Welcome to the gun show kid.

It really made me smile because it reminded me of my grandfather. That's the sort of thing he would have done. I think secretly he would have wanted someone to try stuff like that with him.

Anyways, there is a picture on the interweb of the mugger's mug shot..you can see his busted up nose. He better make up a good story while in jail. Getting owned by a grandpa won't win you much cred in the clink.

After almost 8 years it has happened

In April, Shayna and I will have been together for 8 years (married for 4). When we first met I had a very bland sense of taste. I wasn't a fan of spice at all. To put it into perspective, the medium sauce packet at Taco Bell would be my threshold (I don't really eat taco bell but I imagine medium would have been my breaking point).

Today I actually made myself a lunch that was too bland. I didn't think it was possible. But apparently the rice and chicken combo today was it..it definitely needs some kick.

Good job dear. You've finally broken me down. :-)

Super Sunday

Well after the dust has settled, the final game is set. I was hoping that the packers would prevail from a story line perspective, but if Eli ends up winning this game he could be the better manning which would be a great story line as well..

I'm still pulling for the 19-0 story though. Mostly because it's history. 25 years from now people won't really talk about Eli winning the big game..but if the patriots win they take the place of the greatest team ever. More dominant than the 84 Bears, more perfect than the 72 Dolphins. Of course if they lose they will be just the latest team with the super potent passing offense that couldn't come through in the final game.

The Giants played the Patriots very well in week 17..I expect just as good a game this time.

Why can't I get a domain that I want?

I was looking over some of the features that blogspot came up with this past year and noticed they make it easy to have a domain forwarded to your blog. This is great because I had been thinking about getting a domain with custom email addresses and the like.

So first I look up willis. Of course that's taken by an insurance firm. Stupid insurance.
Next up willi. That's taken but doesn't even have a page associated to it. What's the point?
This time I got it.. thewilli..nope that's taken too..by a Willis family who has a blog (called Chronicles of the Willi)! It looks like a nice blog and I will probably start reading it.

Curse you Todd Bridges for making our name so popular!

All this poses a very interesting question (at least to me)..

What should my domain be? I would like it to be something that my whole family can use. Or is this just a new age vanity plate that I should just forget about (vanity plates cost significantly more I might add)?

I guess I could use ImALoserBecauseIwaitedSoLongtoGetaWillisdomain.com That's got a nice ring to it..

What a weekend

This weekend was outstanding. Starting Friday evening Shayna and I had a date and went to see the movie "The Bucket List". One of those movies where you know you are going to cry at the end. Still, it wasn't bad. The beginning of the movie where Jack Nicholson is surely is especially funny.

Saturday was my birthday party. Lots of people joined Shayna and I at Sezchuan East for lunch. Then some came back to our apartment to play rock band. It was a lot of fun to play with a full band of people. Supposedly they are coming out with a lights & smoke machine attachment this summer. I'll start saving my money now..

Shayna got me Guitar hero so that we could have 2 guitars. I think everyone who played base appreciated it. :-)

After rocking out and getting headaches there was football on TV. The packers won in a snow game which was fun to watch and then the pats blew out the jags.

Sunday I enjoyed watching the chargers beat the colts (especially after that colts fans booed the 12 year old girl for wearing a patriots jersey..show some class). I'm especially looking forward to the patriots beating the snot out of that butt hole Phillip Rivers.

Then the giants beat the cowboys which was also quite exciting.

Overall it was a fantastic birthday weekend. Thank you to everyone who was part of it, especially Shayna who orchestrated everything.

Wild card weekend bust

Out of 4 games this weekend I cared about the outcome of 3 of them. Of course the 3 teams I didn't want to win (seaducks, sparklers, hags) all won. At least the games weren't blowouts.

Other than that it was a good weekend. I missed Shayna's improv debut because I had already made plans to see the skins game with my close personal friend Cris. I hear she was quite funny though. (I take no credit, she came like that).

New drinking game. Everyone play!

All of the political caucus type stuff has me thinking we should play a drinking game. Everytime someone mentions they want "change" take a shot of root beer.
