Last day of April, what's goin' on out there today. I read that AOL, Microsoft and Yahoo were going to join forces and try to destroy spam. This is like one of those cartoons I used to watch when I was a kid, where the heroes and villains would put aside their differences for a common cause. It makes me feel all warm and tingly inside - oh no, wait, that's the porn. So is this a needed step? Well, for that story, let's check my Yahoo Inbox. These are the subjects of some of my e-mails

So yeah, I guess something needs to be done about this bullshit. I am even getting this shit in my everyday e-mail. I pretty much expect to get spammed in my Yahoo and Hotmail accounts, but unfortunately, these worthless fuckers seem to find their ways into my inbox no matter what I do.

Holy shit, where has the time went? I swear it was just Friday night, and now it's already Tuesday. Must have been because I was so damn busy this past weekend. I shoveled 5 yards of gravel Friday night, then Saturday I put about 40 landscaping bricks around the pond. Sunday morning bright and early I went golfing, then got home and went to the driving range. That night I did some more work around the pond, so I was pretty damn busy. But now it's Tuesday.
Today I set up Summer at work. You know, grills, coolers, all that happy shit. I get so sick of setting up that shit. Luckily I got it late this year, or people would have had stupid shit to say, like whoa... think it's going to get warm enough for that? Gee, no dumbass, I think it's just going to keep snowing and you'll need this grill just to keep warm.
I was watching the news tonight, I heard something that the Iraq war is pretty much over. When did this shit happen? I thought we were still dropping our missiles and shit on them, and now it's over? It can't be over yet. Maybe we can invade someone else now that I'm geared up for it. Let's take another 4 letter place starting with "I". Iran could use it, or you know; how about Iowa? Those fuckers would never see it coming either. We're coming for your corn you sunsabitches!!

Another week done with. I love the weekend, especially if it is going to be nice outside. I am going to be doing some brick work around the pond soon, so that will take a day out of my weekend here, and a few other things too. Once the pond gets going, I will be able to take some pictures of it and actually get that section of the pics going on my picture page. I would like to go golfing today, if I can find someone to go with. I'll have to check it out.
I found out today that I fit back into some of my old pants again. That is a kickass feeling to say the least. Hopefully within a few more months I will be at my goal weight. I have already lost 45 pounds, and actually want to lose another 60. So maybe it will take a little longer than three months, but hopefully before summer is over.
I am still toying around with ideas for the front of my site here, this is yet another one. I went searching for backgrounds and decided that I would just make my own instead. This is one of my firsts. I am working on a few others that should look pretty cool, using gradients and shit like that.

Went to the driving range yesterday, that was fun. There is a new course in town here that just opened up last year, so I decided to go there. I still hit rather shitty, so I guess I haven't lost it! After I got home and did some meaningless yard work, I tried my bike out. I think I put about .05 miles on it before I realized this is going to take some getting used to. Today my ass hurts so bad from sitting on that bike for roughly 15 minutes. What's up with that?
As long as we're on the subject of bikes, I have a question? When did this pussy ass idea of helmets come up? Everywhere I look, anyone on a bike is wearing a helmet. Am I missing something here? I know I haven't been on a bike for a few years, but did it become a full contact sport since I was gone? What the hell do you need a helmet for on a bike? I NEVER wore a helmet while I biked. Even back when I was only four years old and just got my training wheels off I still was helmetless. Shit, they probably didn't even have helmets back then. Did I fall off my bike, Yes. Did I get brain damage, well ok that's probably up for grabs, but I'll say no.

Hey, the weather is finally consistent, and nice. It's been consistently shitty since October, except for last Monday, but other than that... shitty, shitty, shitty. We are in the low 60's, which is around the temperature that I love. From 60-75 I'm good to go, I'm not real crazy about the heat and humidity and I loathe the cold and ice, but that is my happy medium.
I am thinking about going out to the driving range and hitting some golf balls tomorrow. It has been over two years since I have even swung a golf club, so I should probably get the Arthicreme and Ibuprofen out now. I took my bike down and put the new seat on it and re-aired the tires, so that is good to go also. I am hoping to get out on that pretty soon and ride around. It should be nice to actually get out and enjoy the outdoors this summer. The only time I was really outside last summer was when I was working on that damn pond, which seemed to consume most of my summer.

It's Easter. Once again Jesus rises from the dead and decides to hide colored boiled eggs and leave baskets of chocolate for all the children. Or was that the bunny? I always get those two things mixed up anyway. Unfortunately, even though it is Easter, it is also Sunday, which inevitably means tomorrow is Monday. That means I have to go back to work, which really sucks. Went out of town today and had dinner at a relatives house. That's always good to go somewhere for that, then you don't have the mess at your house.
I have started something new on my page in case you didn't notice. I put the most recent blog on the front here. There are a couple new links also, which may or may not become active in the future. They are just ideas that I am toying with right now. If anything develops out of the idea, then I will be getting on that and make them active links. I have a few other ideas for this page, and will hopefully be getting them going in the near future. I would like to go with a liquid design, because everyone's browsers are different and this will not look the same on everyone's computers. My idea is to make something that will still be centered and somewhat legible on any computer/browser/platform. Hopefully I will be able to do that. And oh yeah, I'm sure I will change this front page a few hundred more times.

It's Saturday morning, and for some reason I'm up before 8am. I guess since I get up at 6am during the week, this is now considered sleeping in. I remember the old days when I was still in school, I could sleep until noon if I had to. Now I feel like that is wasting the day away. Damn it sucks getting older.
I see they finally arrested that fucking husband in the Laci Peterson case. It's about time they charged that bastard with something. Positively ID'd the body even. He should be thankful he's in prison, because otherwise I would think there would be at least 30 people that would do him in. Hopefully he will get the death penalty, and if not, I can at least hope someone fucks him up real bad in prison.
I am trying to figure out where to go this year on Vacation. I've been to Florida 2 times in my life, and South Dakota 2 times now, so I am looking for something a little different this year. Has to be driveable also, because I'm sure not going to be getting into any airplanes. NWA is going to lay off a shitload of mechanics, and you'll be wondering why the planes are going to be falling out of the skies.

It's Good Friday. I'm off every weekend, so every Friday is good to me. Always good to get paid and then have two days off to blow it in. Nah, actually I've been saving money since I've been on this Atkin's Diet, so I have damn near $1,000 bucks saved up already. Too bad those bastards at Ford Credit seem to think I should still make monthly payments. Oh well, live and learn I guess.
I was reading in the news that Germany is trying to market a condom that will have an anesthetic in it to numb the penis and prolong the act. An anesthetic in a condom? That would be different to say the least. Maybe they can do the commercials for those retro like the old Reeses PB cup ads. Hey, you got Orajel on my Trojan...Hey you got your Trojan in my Orajel. Well, now you know why I'm not an ad executive.
Wednesday was one hell of a day. It took me almost an hour to get home from work, a drive that normally takes about 20 minutes. It was icing up so bad out there I saw at least 4 cars in the ditch on the way home. I only slid once, but luckily not into the ditch like the other goofy shits I saw. I think I topped out at 35MPH that day. Yesterday was still cold, but not icy at all. Today we were supposed to make it to 55, but didn't go past 45. Saturday they are saying 60's, but we'll see.

Did you pay your taxes yesterday? If not, get your Vaseline ready, cuz you're goin to prison. And you thought the government was sticking it to you... just wait.
Well, after experiencing summer on Monday, we had fall yesterday, and winter is dropping by for a visit today and tomorrow. Rain to snow today, then snow tomorrow. I think it's time to move.

It's Monday again, always a pleasure. Right now, the temperature is 86 degrees outside. Holy fucking shit. Do you know how long we've waited for that? Unfortunately as I look ahead, we are looking at some freezing rain/snow on Wednesday and Thursday. Now I'm not too sure about meteorologist terms, but to me, that's fucked up. What does that make today then, a tease? Hey look, weather's all nice and sunny, go outside and do some yardwork...uh, freezing rain! ha ha fuckers.
Saw Anger Management Saturday. That was pretty good. It wasn't as goofy as some of his other movies, but it was still pretty funny. Must have been to take in almost 45 million in it's first weekend. I also got to see the preview for Matrix Reloaded, which will probably end up being the next time I go to the theater.

It's finally up. I did another face lift to it, kept some of the same styling I had on fcpages, but still changed it up a little bit. I like the look of the front page, maybe it's just the advisory sticker thing. I am looking into a couple different software's to blog with, instead of uploading a new html page everytime I write something new. If I do, I am hoping I can backlog everything I have here so far, if not I'll have to make an archives section. I am trying to find more content to put on here, just not sure which route I want to go yet. Luckily I found an FTP program, so I uploaded the entire site in about 10 minutes instead of 10 files at a time, that would have been a bitch.
Hey. It's Friday!!! You know what that means, that's right, tomorrow's Saturday. Absolutely nothing really going on around here, but the weather sure is nice. It's going to be almost 70 again tomorrow and Sunday. That means yardwork... mother fucker. So far I have planned to go watch Anger Management with Adam Sandler tomorrow before any stupid yardwork gets done. Hopefully it will be good. If it is at least a typical Adam Sandler movie, I'll be happy.

Monday, Monday, Monday... sucks, sucks, sucks. Well, I believe I've been approved for what I bought, so here it is... www.disgruntledhuman.com . That's right, no more stupid fucking pop up ads anymore. I get so sick of those. Other than that, no new news, too busy updating the page again.

What in the hell is with this stupid ass yearly thing of turning the clocks ahead an hour? Who are we trying to fool anyway. My body knows it still has an hour until bedtime, no matter what the fucking Timex says. Who comes up with this stupid shit in this country anyway? Sure the sun stays up for another hour, but what good does that do me anyway? I'm usually home before now anyway. And who really gets up at 2am to change their clocks? I certainly don't, I'd like to meet someone who does, just so I could kick their ass. I think if they really want to make this practical, then you should make it on a Friday afternoon. Who wouldn't love to shave an hour off their Friday at work. I sure the hell would.
Bought something this morning. I've only told two people what it is, and I will be able to tell the world very soon.

It's Saturday and we got an inch of snow last night. Not a lot, just enough to make every fucking thing white again. I managed to get back and forth to work Thursday and Friday driving in the lovely ice storm we had. That was real fun. Luckily they dumped enough salt and sand on the roads that I think they deteriorated the top inch of pavement also, so it wasn't slick while I was driving.
I bitch so much about the weather here that I think I should just say fuck it and become the weatherman in town. I'd be pretty good at it, and there wouldn't be any of that stupid barometric pressure bullshit talk going on either. It would either be, umbrella, sunglasses, coat or hide in the basement. That would be all I'd have to do. See this big blob of green shit, well if you can figure out where the hell on this map you live, and this is going over you... then you're fucked. It would be that simple.

Ice storm. This is fucked up beyond belief. So far no real problems aside from the few idiots that feel the need for speed even when they are driving on glare ice. Fuck them, let them roll over. I would say how sick and tired of this weather I am, but I hate to fucking repeat myself over and over.
Haven't wrote this here before, but I have been on the Atkin's diet for a little over a month now. I've lost over 30 pounds already and it's finally noticeable I guess. I've had people at work starting to ask me if I'm losing weight and what I'm doing etc... Notice that never happens when you are gaining weight. No one comes up to you and goes..hey Bob, you're packin on the pounds there, whatcha doing, eating a six pack of Snickers every night before bed?

Hey... It's April Fool's Day, and you know what that means. Absolutely nothing. Didn't even see one April Fool's Joke or anything. How lame we've become. No Vaseline on the doorknobs, itching powder in the socks...NOTHING! What is wrong with all of you? You should all be ashamed of your lack of enthusiasm.
Almost 60 here today, only mid 30's tomorrow. This weather is getting annoying. Actually it isn't getting, it's been annoying for a while.
Power went out at work again today. It was out for about 10 minutes. I was just getting ready to get out of there and everything went black. Couldn't punch out and leave after that, had to stick around til it came back on. Damn power outages anyway.
