Danny & A Cattle of Drunkards

I visited this little turd burglar at my parents during lunch the other day. He's still tired at noon! Naturally, I gave him a blanket.

A co-worker sent this to me. Funny, thing is I saw cops chasing a moving tree top through the crowd. I BET this was a different tree though. What a schmuck thing to do!?

I could only hold my phone for so long before my hands went numb from the cold last night! It was alright though. I'll try to update later (possibly with captions) but I may just hold off. Since, I'm sure everyone will have heard the stories by then. I had to post some of these photos though! I have video too. Much excitement/unique terror went down in a celebratory, flaming, ruckus last night. To say the least it was something I had never seen before.

PS- I'll try to snag some more photos off of friends.

Drink it in Ladies and Gents!!!

"I finally kicked my diet cola habit in my 20s, a good thing too, because scientists in Boston recently found that drinking one or more regular or diet sodas every day doubles your risk of metabolic syndrome-- combination of conditions that increase your chances of heart disease and diabetes. The exact culprit isn't completely understood, but it could be the caramel color added to colas and other dark sodas, which increased the risk for metabolic syndrome in animals. Experts also speculate that exposing your taste buds to the sweet fizzy flavor of soda conditions you to crave sugary foods, which can lead to weight gain. Whatever the reason, it's an easy enough habit to quit. Club soda (sodium free, of course) with a splash of juice satisfies the fizz craving with just enough sweetness. For a good alternative, try Sassy Water."

For an extremely long period, I'd say for about over a decade I've been hooked on Diet Pepsi. A direct result of belonging to a family that's been buying cases of it since 1994 and probably way before then. I could go on and on and ooooon about how much soda has effected my life. Some good came of it but mostly in negative ways. Sodium benzoate, anyone? This stuff is like crack to the ADHD brain. My parents were not advocates of coffee and as a kid neither was I. So we drank soda. Also, I can remember the one summer that my older brother spent entirely drinking nothing but Pepsi Kona's and Killer Shakes (he drank the shakes mostly). Both of these are so fucking gross! Though, It kept us up for hours playing Mario Kart. Anyway, for the life of me I couldn't understand why it took me so long to destroy this habit of drinking soda. Since I don't even like the taste of Pepsi. It just tastes like chemicals to me. What's even more baffling is that no one else in my family seems to have had this problem with soda but me.

My conclusion for always crawling back to these red-blue silver cans was always the craving for fizz. Carbonation!!!! Carbonation is what I crave. Before I read this article I've since switched to sodium free club soda, too. Good call. (whispers)Is this much better?

Anyway, this article is something I'd like to pass on, even though I think everyone already knows that drinking soda is bad. It's just a nice reminder. Here's the rest of the article.

Article Summary: Eat purple stuff and plop out babies by 25. Interesting? But no and no. Yes, to no more cola's.

I've come a loooong way.

INVOLUNTARY SPASMS ENJOY THE SHOW!!! additional sentences added

First thing this morning I step on to my street and I see a woman cloaked in red walking her dog cloaked in red. The car starts and immediately Phillies victory cheering expels over the airwaves. All the while "Song 2" by Blur followed by Metallica's "Enter Sandman" is the choice of background noise for such celebration. The whole way into work I kept flipping through the stations to hear all of the enthusiasm.

It wasn't even 8am yet.

Anyway, this is coming from someone who knows nada about this season or the last 15 but it's going to be an incredible week as well as tiring. It's kind of a big deal. I admit I know nothing about sports. At one point in my life I knew a little. I'd check the papers for the scores (no really I did). I could differentiate the teams. I knew which teams were on the National and American Leagues but that was over a decade ago. I forget everything now. Remember starter jackets? Yeah, I wore one in 4th grade (mine was a basketball one though). I'm almost certain the only reason I followed sports for that brief period in my tiny life under and around the age of 10 was because I looked up to my brothers/Dad and well I played some sports too. That ship has since sailed and while I'm unbelievably excited (and surprisingly so) for these games it will not get me liking sports any more than the day before. I mean shit, just the other day I wore an LA Dodgers tee (just for the colors and cursive) unknowing that the Phillies had been playing them. This is how little I know about sports. I will continue to live my life in this fashion. It's just nice to see everyone so enthusiastic over the same event. Annnd there's seven games. This makes a difference in the height of crazy because it extends in over a period of time vs one night.

Also, my work cares a lot about sports. So much so that we get to dress down in t-shirts and sneakers as long as we wear red and/or Phillies shirts all week. Since I don't have any Phillies stuff at my place (maybe in my parents attic?) I've opted for a red t-shirt with a cheerleader jumping on it that says "up with spirit". Strangely, I thought this shirt would never serve a purpose.

Today a Phillies banner came through the regular mail. I just think it's funny that when the Fedex man walked through the office wearing a Red Sox cap everyone poked there heads out of their cubicles like a pack of confused apes. One guy actually got confrontational by standing up in the middle of his aisle furrowing his eye brows. He said, "did that guy just..." Another one said, "I think he did." This man has probably been a Red Sox fan for a good chunk of his life. He's got his reasons. Stay back! Also, another guy at work said he has his hang over cure already nestled in his fridge for tomorrow morning. He was also the same guy telling the whole corner of the office that he walked outside in nothing but pants and his Phillies t-shirt (in 50 degree weather) this morning sipping an iced coffee looking at everyone looking at him.

Get ready for the bonanza. Guns will be fired, people will be arrested, fire crackers will explode, pots and pans will be beat, out of shape painted shirtless men will piss in our streets, and trash from excitement well blow down the streets like tumble weeds. All in the name of sports and blind pride. Stock your fridges with bottles of water or grape Pedialyte. You're going to need them! 'Cuz those dehydrated calves are going to be hurting. Note: According to a co-worker Pedialyte is good for hang overs. He learned it from Metallica.


Also, I will never. ever. Mention Metallica twice or even once in another post for the rest of my whole damned life.

It's glorious.

At work out back around 9amish. This is glorious. I SHIT YOU NOT!!!


A shadow in the work parking lot. Sorta resembled fangs or horns.

After this message I promise that I'm done with the topic of fangs.

What are those? Little snails??

My internet time has been limited these past few days at work/home. Previously, I had started and stopped a bazillion different posts. Unfortunately, all these have been interrupted and I forget where I was going with most of them. Instead here's a photo of my sweet little fang necklace that everyone has been talkin' about.

I found it interesting that this necklace prompted so many questions.


"Have you been watching True Blood?"
Actually, I saw the first episode. It wasn't that bad. Though, a bit pornographic for a series? Then again vampie's are pretty horny and it is showtime.

"What? What're those teeth? Cute."

My mom complements anything I wear but then asked "what is that?"

Lastly, most recently out to lunch with my department from work the waitress goes, "oooooh, I love your necklace!" Pauses "Are you a dentist?"

Anyway, I've only got about 5 minutes left.

Got to run!

I sorta over paid for this one.

How appropriate is this necklace for October? Coincidental but still pretty damned appropriate.

Recently, I'm the proud owner of one (Thanks, Ebay!!!).

I had things under control

Check out that lobster stencil.

It's amazing what people remember when they're not trying

Since, we've been picking up other people's wireless Internet (ssshhh. we'll get our own soon. don't judge me.) it's been a tad discordant. Seemingly only when I want to use it. Bored and uninspired I wrote out a listicle* of trivial stuff I'm currently enjoying to the maxium.

Here the list of what kept me up last night (plus some more from today).

Fall 2008

all I could jangle:
-listening to rain in bed
-ordering club soda w/ a lime at a bar when not up for drinking (Good for quitting diet pepsi too).
-Avoiding television with the words "90210" in it. Really, just non-actively caring about all of the newish shows.
-Cleo Lane. Who the hell is she?
-Californication thanks to Lauren. No David Du is still not attractive to me despite his lovable fuck up character that I still sort of hate.
-Biking any chance I get. Yeah, I can now hold a drink and not ride into a ditch!
-Short sleeve hoodies. Is there a point? Hell, yes.
-Memorizing our world atlas shower curtain.
-The Bee's "Listening Man"
-Late 70's Cars.
-Drinking hot cocoa from our disgusting machine at work even though it's barely October.
-Burn After Reading
-Anything colored gold.
-Not getting past the notion that John McCain uses only his bottom lip to speak. Where are those top front teeth!?
-Figuring out the amount of rain now vs the summer's.
-Percy Sledge's Greatest Hits (on vinyl!!!!)
-Downtown Owl
-Making excuses not to go out every night especially Thursdays. I doubt I did that anyway.
-Using my 2.0 mega pixel camera phone as a regular camera.
-Not having an iPod anymore. Though that will change soon.
-cuarderno steno
-Thinking about painting an Obama portrait or at least drawing one. He's got such expressive features!
-Still watching but hating Entourage.
-Brushing up on my presidents. Quizzo needs me.
-Rethinking my future and honestly changing it for the better.
-New TVOTR track "Crying"
-Not giving a hoot about money.

Then I fell asleep to the rain last night. It was outstanding.

Yours truely,


*I stole the word listicle from
