Thursday Night

--I hate when people throw out completely off the wall accusations about either candidate.
--Since it has started to be cold of a morning, I've been thinking about getting an aftermarket remote starting system installed on my truck. Has anyone had any luck with those?
--I tried a McRib sandwich at McDonald's tonight. That was a very stupid, stupid idea.
--I made Twitter account the other day, I didn't really get it at first but now I'm starting to like it.
--My PhotoSwap days on the iPhone are over. I randomly got a very undesired photo. And that's all I'm gonna say.
--This is probably my favorite time of year. The only thing I hate about it is that EVERY year my hand get really dry and my knuckles crack and bleed. That is the one and only time I use lotion, I ain't no weenie Liberal. (Geez, I almost sound like an anonymous commenter over at Liberally Lean.)
--Remember folks: Vote McCain Nov. 4th
--Is MySpace pretty much dead? Or does it just seem like it because I never use mine anymore?
--I got frustrated the other night and tossed my iPod/iPhone holder thats in my truck onto the dashboard. It bounced up and cracked my windshield. And its now spider-webbed out to a little over a foot in diameter. Needless to say, I felt dumb.
--I have trouble remembering how old I am sometimes. And I'm not that old.
--The Lil' Bill O'Reilly videos that Jarhead posts are hilarious, I was crying I was laughing so hard the other day.

Closing Thoughts

--My wife is really into watching The Biggest Loser and shes sucked me into it this time. The changes those people go through are amazing.
--I should pray more than I do. Sometimes I feel like I completely leave God out of my life.
--I can't stand Alan Colmes.
--I think I have to explain to people every single day that painting an automobile is not an easy process. If you haven't done it before, its probably going to look like crap.
--I have a month and a half old nephew that I have only seen pictures of. That's weird to me because I'm used to all my family being in pretty close proximity.
--I like the new Dodge Rams. Then again, I like any of the new domestic trucks.
--I've never really laughed at Larry the Cable Guy.
--Purple Rain is on VH1. Next Channel.
--I wish CommuniComm Cable had an interactive guide rather than just the TV Guide channel.
--I like to watch the Spanish channels sometimes even though I dont understand them,I make up my own dialogue for them in my head and laugh out loud at it sometimes.
--Whatever happened to Patrick Duffy? Maybe were all just dreaming and he'll be in the shower in the morning.
--Maybe I should get some sleep.

...And Heres to you Mrs. Robinson..

Just finished watching The Graduate with my wife, another one of those I shouldv'e seen but just haven't. I stand by my prior statement that Dustin Hoffman is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors. I also put it together that the wedding scene in Wayne's World II is poking fun at The Graduare. The only drag was the overload of Simon and Garfunkel tunes, I mean I can handle Mrs. Robinson every now and then, but come on! Anyway I liked this one, as expected.

Tuesday Night

--I agree with Silicpne. PhotoSwap on the IPhone is awesome.
--Not much to blog about today.
--The new movie with Angelina Jolie directed by Clint Eastwood looks really good.
--I think I spend more time reading my list of favorite blogs than working all day.
--Some people find it surprising that I work in the automotive industry and absolutely hate Nascar. And I mean hate.

Can't Sleep Thoughts

--Just saw a headline on Drudge that reads:"McCain vows to come from behind...". HeHeHe. Maybe I'll grow up one day, probably not.
--I went to work this afternoon to take wrap up some end of month paperwork that should have taken about forty-five minutes. I finally got home five and a half hours later. I was peeved.
--I've heard the movie in theaters called Fireproof is really good, but I have yet to seen one preview or poster for it.
--While at a cook out/hay ride at my wife's dad's church this weekend I watched a Korean foreign exchange student burn a graham cracker and then bury it explaining that if it had a life, he had just taken it from said graham cracker. I wasn't sure how to respond to him.
--My wife has plans to go to the Canton Trade Day's with my cousin this weekend, I guess now would be a good time to hide my checkbook.
--When I found out my wife's aunt got the EXACT same furniture we did plus a love seat for about $800 less than I paid for it, my stomach did a flip. And I even blogged about the good deal I got.
--I enjoy reading BG's old posts on The Muse.
--Speaking of BG, that guy must have some thick skin, some of the comments people leave on there would have me royally pissed off.

Rain Man

Since I signed up for Netflix last week I'm trying to watch a bunch of classic movies that I should have already seen but just haven't had the chance. This time it was Rain Man. I was expecting this to be a pretty good movie and of course it was, but threes just not alot to say about it without making it sound crappy. It's one of those movies that makes you appreciate everything and everyone around you. But anyway, I thought it was a good flick and, unlike Philadelphia, this one will be a multiple watcher. I did find myself laughing alot throughout it which really surprised me. I'm coming to realize that I also like any movie with Dustin Hoffman in it (next in my Netflix queue is The Graduate), he just seems like he would be a really nice if you ever met him in person. Any suggestions on what else to see? I'd really like some opinions so I have something to blog about later.

R & R posted this first...

...but I found found this extremely interesting so I decided I should posy it. The French translator is kind of annoying, but it's still an interesting video.

Now go check out House Of R&R's blog.

Wednesday Night Thoughts

--I'm bored, so I'm gonna borrow everbody's "Random Thoughts" bit.
--The closer it gets to election day, the more I want to punch Barack Obama in the head.
--I wonder how many recounts we will have to go through if Obama does happen to lose. I honestly don't think I could take anymore, I am completely sick of hearing election coverage.
--I wasn't able to get a pic of it, but driving down 380 from Decatur to Bridgeport this morning I got to watch the shelf(?) cloud from the cold from roll in. That was pretty cool.
--I may be immature, but I love watching Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. I'm not sure why, but Aqua Teen Hunger Force always makes me snicker.
--I filled my truck up for for 55 bucks the other day and was excited about it. Then I realized how sad that was.
--I like a few AC/DC songs, but I don't think I could make myself go to their concert in January.
--Good Night, Folks.


This was my first movie I have received from Netflix, which is awesome by the way, and my first time to watch this movie. WOW, what a powerful film. I'm not a homophobe, but I will admit a few parts of it freaked me out, but other than that this was an amazing movie. I don't think I have ever seen a movie with Tom Hanks or Denzel Washington that I didn't enjoy, they are just phenomenal actors. I liked how this movie didn't just throw the "gayness" at you the whole way through, just enough where you know its there. Anyway, I highly recommend this one, its just about a guy's fight through extreme circumstances for what is fair and just, even though some people, myself included, don't agree with his lifestyle. Awesome movie.

Plus, its got an awesome Springsteen track as the opener.

Not bad, not bad at all.

The temperature in Bridgeport at about 6:45 a.m.

And a crappy pic, but in the left lane, nonetheless.

Anyone who posts via iPhone...

How do you get pictures to work? Every time I email one in it just shows as a broken link.

My favorite quote...

...from Forrest Gump.
"Sometimes, I guess there just aren't enough rocks."

Furniture Karma

I've got to give props to Willhite Furniture in Weatherford. My wife and I swung by there on Sunday after my grandparents recommended them and we were amazed at the place. The salesperson acted like she truly wanted to help us get the best deal possible, not just make a commission (a well deserved commission, however). I'm a young newlywed guy and they went to great lengths to take care of me and my wife. Every piece of furniture I purchased they discounted at least 30 percent, which may be standard procedure, but it sure got my attention. I just know that I will be a repeat customer and if your ever furniture shopping and live fairly close to Weatherford I highly recommend them.

I didn't watch the final debate...

...but I did find this post over at Anobiter's blog particularly interesting.

Weekend "Road Trip"

--While riding down 281 to Lampasas and then over to Killeen, I saw probably 150 to 200 McCain/Palin sings and probably only abou 15 Obama/Biden signs. That was cool.

--The Killeen/Fort Hood area seemed much cleaner and nicer since I was there this time last year.

--There also seemed to be alot of new hotels there, I wonder how many will shut down when we finally pull out of Iraq and the yearly deployments down there stop.

--The weather was amazing this weekend.

--Whoever put the convienence store/truck stop at the intersection of 281 and I-20 is a very, very wealthy man.

--Do the Walton's still own the Rockin' W ranch near Mineral Wells? I didn't see the signs with their brand on the gates this time.

--This weekend wore me out, I'm going to bed.

Deal or Dud?

I'm considering getting tickets to the Eagles' November show at the American Airlines Center, so I thout I would price check tonight. Do these seats look like they should cost 175 bucks a pop?! (And they are supposedly the best seating andpricing available at the moment.) Deal or dud?

Music choice Jarhead and I might agree on

This is one of the greatest albums of all time.
