I missed a spot
I missed a spot shaving this morning. It's a little patch just under my lower lip. Well I had not shaved in awhile before today, so the hairs there pretty much constitute a full on goatee.
Thursday, October 29, 2009
Yep, and I wasn't told this little fact till I was 1/2 way to work and far away from my razor. So for at least the first half of the day, I'm rockin' a frou frou artists goatee.
Church Street Chili Champ
Monday, October 26, 2009
Kendle didn't want me to show her face...I guess she thought after slaving away in the kitchen all day, and then partying all night at the cookoff, she wasn not looking her best. So I cut her head out, so you could see her Church Street Chili Shirt, which was the first prize.
Thats right...first time there, and she takes home the gold medal. Way to go girl.
I had forgotten that Alexia might be there, and that Jayk and her have some sort of history. But apparently SHE forgot too, cause she didn't even know who she was. Talk about an awkward introduction:
"Hi, I'm Lexi"
"Yeah, I know, I'm Jayk Knight"
"Oh....OH, Hi, this is my husband Paul..."
All in all a great time. I'm sure Colin will put it all down better than me, so check over there for a recap of the not weird moments.
Stained my pants
So I dropped a little of my lunch on my pants. It kinda bummed me out for a second. They were my good jeans and I hate when the good ones get ruined. Then I realized where the stain was an I was O.K. with it.
Friday, October 23, 2009
It was near my junk, and I figgure that if you are staring at my package, you are past being concerned if I'm a slob or not.
Plus, if someone is all "You have a stain on your pants" I can be all "Stop looking at my penis, you sicko"
English people rock. They say "Brilliant" where ever I would normally say "Awesome."
Thursday, October 22, 2009
I feel "Awesome" is played out and I am going to try to modify my speech to say brilliant instead. But maybe that will come off as being super douchey?
Yeah, it probably will...Brilliant!

I don't think I can get married
Here's the deal. LOTS of people are getting married and engaged. I guess I'm getting to that age or something.
Monday, October 19, 2009
Anywho, so there are all these pictures up on Facebook of the weddings, and in every single one, the guy just seems to fade into the background. Wearing all black will do that to someone. But that's my point. It's HER day.
A friend of mine once told me "I got my day...that was when I asked her to merry me. The wedding is HER day."
So there lies the problem. I've NEVER faded into the background, and I can't imagine THAT'S gonna be the day I start. Seems to me THAT day would be the best day to be IN the spotlight.
Stuck on an elevator
When I was a child, I had this irrational fear of being stuck on an elevator. Why? Cause when I was small and still had braces on, I saw this movie. The kid got stuck in an elevator and someone deiced that they could use his braces to restart the elevator.
Saturday, October 17, 2009
Obviously the idea of getting stuck in a tiny elevator was enough to scare me, but to top it off with the fact that someone might have to unwire my teeth to get us out...no thank you!
So Friday, I was in that exact situation. I got on the elevator, went up 2 out of 5 floors, and the lights went out, the elevator stopped, and I was trapped. But now I don't have braces, so how were we ever going to get this taken care of.
The lady called the front desk, but I hit the emergency call button, and got a technician to come pry the door open and let us take the stairs the rest of the way up.
In all, it was not as scary as I had imagined it would be, and I was pretty calm and did exactly what needed to get done.
Lower my interest rates?
So I get this call, about once or twice a month, telling me these guys URGENTLY need to speak with me about my credit cards.
Thursday, October 15, 2009
It's automated, so I just usually hang up.
So they still keep coming. So I finally decide...I'm gonna talk to a live operator! I press one, and am connected. The lady was very nice, and removed my phone number from their list.
Or so I thought.
So I keep getting the calls. So again, I click through to the live operator. I start to explain that I was already removed from their lists, when 1/2 way through my sentance I just get hung up on.
Ok, so clearly these guys are crooks. And their employees cannot waste time taking people off lists, or providing any kind of customer service.
So I get mad. I decide....the NEXT time they call, I'm going to play their little game and act interested. I'm going to tie up whoever calls me next for as long as possible, stringing them along till they are forced to take me out of the system, so they don't waste time anymore.
So today...I get that call.
"Did you press 1 to lower your credit scores?"
"Hell yeah I did!"
"OK! Let's see if we can't get you qualified....about how much total credit card debt would you say you have?" He asked.
"I'd say 'bout a 1000 bucks," I responded truthfully.
So apparently I need to make up a larger amount of debt to be considered worth their time.
So the quest continues, I'll try and update you if having 20,000 dollars of credit card debt makes them bite.
Every Tuesday for a MONTH

Throw in Saw:
Saw VI on October 23
and you have yourself one hell of a 4 week period. I mean, I'd call it a month, but it spans October and November...so I fell like I can't call it a month.
In other news....
It only took a year, but Kendle FINALLY joined the blogosphere and commented on one of my posts.
I started the day off here:
Sunday, October 11, 2009
And ended my day here:
The Kraft tailgate was great. The had a bounce house, all the free food and beer you could ever want, and a D.J.
Sure, the Illini didn't win, but it was fun to take the little lady too her first Illinois football game. I taught her all the cheers and stuff.
I left at the half, because I had to get to the woods, which is where I am now. It's COLD. Colin still refuses to turn the heat on.
This morning I was huddled close to the heater all Bob Cratchet style and he came out of the back room,
"You know if you open your legs a little, you can heat you vagina...cause you are a girl. It's NOT that cold."
Kraft sponsored tailgating, football game, AND McCormicks all in the same weekend?! It's gonna be a full one.
Friday, October 09, 2009
The real fun will be eating all that free food and drinking all that free beer at the tailgate. Well not too much beer, because after the tailgate and the game I have to scoot my little booty over to Indiana for "Colinfest in the Woods." The weather promises to be nicer than what we have had the last week. I'm looking forward to not rain for once.
Kendle and Kristin will be unable to join, so a batchelor weekend in the woods is what's on the menu. Sadly cabins for next year were sold out, and it's still up in the air as to what the plan will be.
Saw 6 iPhone app = Bacon
Back in high school, when we were ever so clever, we had a friend who hated meat. We used to come up with ways to trick her into eating bacon, the one meat she hated most.
Tuesday, October 06, 2009
Were we ever successful? No, although I think Colin's "Hide bacon in your mouth and french kiss her" was the plan that had the best chance of success, but that's not the point of this.
Apparently, the voice of Jigsaw, FREAKS Kendle out. Like to the point were if it's broad daylight she doesn't like to hear it. ESPECIALLY if it's customized to HER name.
Enter the Saw 6 iPhone App[iTunes App Store link], and the "Jigsaw your voice" feature. My new mission is to hide in our room, and play this audio for her some night.
Yeah, I'm glad I bought a new couch, cause I'm about to be sleepin' on it!
