Weekend’s here finally!  Friday ended with us returning to my parents’ house.  Dad & I watched “Rogue One: A Star Wars story” in the basement on his home theater which includes an 84” HD projection screen, beer & rum or whatever you like!  Mom & Kim watched a chick flick called “You Before Me”.  Mom had it recorded on the TV.

 

May 6th is Sherry Hastings birthday.  My older but shorter sister-law!

 

When it’s over +24 degrees Celcius inside, & the same issue occurs ¾ years, somethings wrong!  It’s +28 in here on Saturday at 7:00 pm.  I woke up around 9:30 am, fan on & window open all night it was already +26 Celcius.  Right then I knew it would become unbearable in here!

 

My brother came over this afternoon to help me with some computer stuff.  On the way he called me asking if I wanted anything from DQ.  If someone’s offering you a free blizzard you answer yes.  I said “Sure I’ll have a medium Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cup blizzard.  They screwed up & made the order a large instead of medium, I ate it anyways.  I screwed up later.  Earlier tonight Kim asks me “Should we get some blizzards since it’s so hot in here?”  I replied “Nah, I already had a large blizzard when Mitch came over, I’m good.  Actually I could go for a medium Crispy Crunch blizzard”.  Kim replies “YOU WHAT?????  YOU HAD A BLIZZARD WITHOUT ME & DIDN’T TELL ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”  “Yeah, but you know now.  Let’s go get some ice cream”.  I did not get more ice cream, I did get some Timbits though!

12 years of marriage with Kim today!  Happy anniversary Kim!  Sure we’ve had our ups & 4.5 years of downs, but we made it & have many more years together.  In summation should we get a DQ blizzard today?  Since we don’t have the moola to do much else?

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today. 

 

Looks like a busy summer at the movie theater!  I’m a big fan of Simon Pegg.  “Shaun of the Dead” & “Hot Fuzz” are FANTASTIC!  I have 2 or 3 other movies with him in them, they’re good also!

I LIKE TO HAVE A SCHEDULED PLAN

I fell asleep to“Kongos” the new album “Egomaniac”

I exercised to “Bryan Adams” his greatest hits, then silence, not quite long enough?

I guess I did a little more than usual, that’s probably why the 16 song album didn’t play long enough. I’ve successfully added more push ups today & yesterday.

Yes, I like to have a plan for whatever is happening on a certain day or if there’s a certain event. 95% of the time it doesn’t work out according to anybody’s plan Life’s not a scheduled event. You’re born, & immediately people in your life usually do whatever is needed. I’m lucky to have 2 great familys. My family, Kim’s family & all of our friends! Something different will happen almost daily. We all need to take everything one day at a time. You know there is a good possibility that something will pop up & you’ll have to adjust your plan accordingly. I’ve never had a 5 year plan. I expected to have a 9-5 job, a couple of kids & an amazing wife! Only 1/3 of that plan worked out, it was that Kim is an amazing wife! Cancer changed the other 2 things. I had never planned on having cancer, who does? It hit me & everyone in my life, including me, had to adjust their plan. I never want to be a “burden” to anyone, but here I am with hundreds of really great people worrying about me. I’m fine, I’ve got this. If I need help I know you’re their to help me if I need it. So please don’t stress yourself out “worrying” about me? Hold my beer & watch this! I’ll call you if I need you or you call me if you need me? I worry way more about others than I do myself, that’s how I want to be! I think I’m somewhere in the middle though & I’ll likely be there until I become an “Avenger”?

I fell on my parents driveway on Friday & whoever saw it was ready to help me. I was fine, not even a scrape on me. That right there would be reason to panic, if I was bleeding, but I wasn’t. I got up immediately & got inside. You know what still hurts from Friday? When Brewster jumped on my lap & hit his tiny skull on my lip, no blood or anything visible, just a throbbing pain in my bottom lip! It’s a routine when we get in a car. He waits in the driver seat while I get my seat belt on, then I call him over to sit with me. He’s hit my jaw a few times & he’s overshot & hit his head on the window a few times.

I like Beck. Well his album “Odelay” anyways. I haven’t listened to his recent material though. I’d say I’m a casual fan.

THROW BACK THURSDAY? #TBT?

Toronto Blue Jays GM pulled off the unthinkable trade this morning for David Price, among the top 2-4 starting pitchers in the game. The only problem is he’ll be a free agent at the end of the season in September or October if they make it to the playoffs? NOBODY saw that coming!

Yes the Blue Jays won with their “new” short stop! 8 runs for the Blue Jays new short stop, Troy Tulowitzki, who spent almost 10 years in Colorado, finished the game with a 2 run home run & 2 doubles for a total of 4 RBIs & 2 runs scored. Do I expect this for every game? Not at all. His defense is also superior to Jose Reyes. He drove in 4 runs & scored 2 or 3 including his home run? Welcome to the Blue Jays, I hope the GM has another “ninja like trade” in the works for a pitcher. Nobody saw this trade coming so it’s been called “ninja”/”league of shadows” trade, despite this being talked about in the off season & during the month of May again. I think Tulowitzki just shut up all of the GM haters. Jose Bautista was right though when he spoke to the media saying “It’s a good baseball move, but not one we really needed”. They were all thinking a trade would mean a big name pitcher would be coming to Toronto. The trade deadline is tomorrow. I won’t be close to even opening this door. Friday you’re on your own. I’ll be on the couch watching the activity in MLB.

All of this is great but ay 51W-51L it seems too late with 60 games left in the season? 2 or 3 guys have a lot of pressure on them to carry the Jays to the playoffs, especially with 13 games against the New York Yankees

Now that so many sporting events have adopted the challenge flag, it needs to be changed somewhat. Make the on field officials responsible for their mistakes. Don’t let them hide behind “Oh, the guy in whatever city called it after the review”. No. Have the head official at the game & the challenging coach watch the video together. If the coach isn’t satisfied with the result & begins to argue, toss him from the game. Make the officials at the game take responsibility for the call. Be it CFL, NFL, MLB, NHL or the NBA. I only watch Blue Jays baseball & as much CFL as possible, & a very minimal amount of NHL. I don’t know if the NBA has a challenge rule?

Too funny not to share….

New Finger Eleven out tomorrow.

Songs I like. “Mr. Big” The only ’80s hair metal band I like. Only one CD for #TBT!

Yes their “Power Ballad”. I assume my parents bought the CD for me?  Based on this tune, then quickly realized there were much better songs on the album. I was young 10-12 I’m guessing.
