Things are changing...

When I was in Grade 11 I used to go to Subway a lot with my friend Josh. We went so much that one time I went in and the guy said, "The usual?" That's power! Well, I would ask for pretty much everything on my sandwich, and I determined that there was something on there that was making my sub taste a little funny. I quickly narrowed it down to olives and from then on have given up on the creepy black things.

Until...I went for supper with the Saucy's last month and they served up this super sweet chicken dish. However, I was a little leery when I first saw it cause it looked like there were jalapenos on it, and everyone knows how well I do with spicy stuff. Well, as I'm eating it I realize these are olives!!! But wait...I really like this! That was odd.
And then a few days later I'm standing in line at Subway and I get this taste in my mouth. Is this a craving for olives?!?! What is going on here????? I asked for black olives on half my sub to test it out. And it was bliss!!!! So now, after 12 years of boycotting I regularly put olives on my sub! What an amazing story...

I think this might be because I am somewhat growing up. My buddy Dennis got married and I got to be his best man. He gave me this awesome watch, which to be honest, when I first saw it I thought, oh man, how can I wear this, it's a grownup watch?!? Well, I've been wearing it and I cannot tell you how many people compliment me on it (and many people are shocked that I would wear such a watch).

Thanks Dennis!

So, those are two signs that I am growing up...yay.

and somehow my blog came up as a match.

not really sure how to respond to that...

Kortney and I have a love/hate relationship. We dated for awhile and it was kind of a messy break-up. I tried to stop her wedding, but was unsuccessful (she always said I was useless...).

One time we were making out and she bit my lip, just to taste my blood. That was freaky...wasn't really surprised though now that I think of it. Another time she called me a yogurt in front of all my friends. I was so embarrassed!

So yeah, there's a little bit of bitterness and tension between the two of us. I can't honestly say I'm happy for her now. I wish we could have worked things out better.

And now this whole business with blog links!

A couple years ago Kortney came up me and was like,
"I READ YOUR BLOG!!!??!!?"

To which I replied, "So...."

"Well how come I'm not in your links???" She snapped back.

"Because you broke my heart you maneater!!!" I thought in my head but was too chicken to say.
Instead I said nothing and ran out of the room crying. That night someone slashed the tires on my hog. I have my suspicions as to who that person just might have happened to be ;(

And now she's on my case again, "WHY CAN'T I BE IN YOUR BLOG LINKS!!!?!?!?!" Her screams resound in my brain...

So I hope you're happy Kortney cause I've finally added you to my blog links...

under Blogs I Don't Recommend...

with the title Tonya Harding...

You see, Kortney is a figure skater,

And she broke my heart like Tonya Harding broke that girls knee,

And the pain will always be there Kortney. Thanks...thanks for not getting out of my life!

I Love Creepiness...

I don't know where it came from or where it started, but I love creepiness. I think that had a big factor in the Dark Avenger fiasco.

I have come across two things lately which have absolutely blown me away.

Number One - Mr. Brooks

This movie is so good! I thought I was going to like it, but I was surprised by how much I LOVED it. All I knew going in was Kevin Costner was a killer and William Hurt was some creepy guy in his mind. Oh man, William Hurt and Kevin Costner do such a good job!

Number Two - Dexter

I looked at the top searches on and I saw Dexter in there. Thought I would look into it. All I knew was that it was a tv show about a serial killer of some sort. Okay, I watched the first episode yesterday and immediately went to buy the DVD. This show is brilliantly creepy...the end of the first episode absolutely sucked me in!

These fit in nicely with my taste in strange movies. Let me recap some of those for you....


I hope they are watching... they'll see. They'll see and they'll know, and they'll say, "Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly...”

The Shining

Perhaps they need a good talking to, if you don't mind my saying so. Perhaps a bit more. My girls, sir, they didn't care for the Overlook at first. One of them actually stole a pack of matches, and tried to burn it down. But I "corrected" them sir. And when my wife tried to prevent me from doing my duty, I "corrected" her.

Session 9

Hello, Gordon. You know who I am... *Do it, Gordon.*

A Clockwork Orange

There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening.


We see a deadly sin on every street corner, in every home, and we tolerate it. We tolerate it because it's common, it's trivial. We tolerate it morning, noon, and night. Well, not anymore. I'm setting the example. What I've done is going to be puzzled over and studied and followed... forever.


Rise and shine, Adam. You're probably wondering where you are. I'll tell you where you might be. You might be in the room that you die in.

The Cell

Do you believe there is a part of yourself, deep inside in your mind, with things you don't want other people to see? During a session when I'm inside, I get to see those things.

From Hell

There, there Netley. I shall tell you where we are. We're in the darkest region of the human brain, a radiant abyss where men go to find themselves.


Do it like I showed you, the neck is first.

Friday the 13th

You see, Jason was my son, and today is his birthday...
(The scariest ending to a movie I have ever experienced!)

Silence of the Lambs

A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

Sweet Dreams....

I used to love Full House.

In fact, our whole family loved the entire TGIF lineup!

Why?!? What?!?

I used to LOVE Van Damme movies. Seriously...and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Steven Seagal, etc, etc...

These were my favorite movies at age 13!!!!!!!!
What the?!? Huh???

(Okay, I actually still love the movies Timecop & Total Recall)

The reason I can't stand these shows now is because I am intelligent and they are shallow. Now, I'm pretty sure I got my intelligence from my parents, but seeing as how they enjoyed these shows as well (in their adults years) makes me wonder.

I have a sneaking suspicion my Dad is/was a smart guy. I mean, he did crossword puzzles a lot (and he did free the slaves...). Does that say something? I remember overhearing him have a deep theological discussion with my uncle. Now that's what I'm talking about!

My mom is smart, the only way I beat her at Scrabble is by cheating (it's for your own ego mom!). But anytime I try to have deep conversations with my mom about theological issues she usually just smiles at me until I'm done talking.

So why did my parents love to watch these shows and thus make us think these shows were great things to fill our minds with??? (Oh, I should note my mom is smart because she doesn't/didn't like the Van Damme type movies)

I don't get it.
