Spam...how poetic

I sometimes read my spam messages. I mean I know they are just trying to get me to go to some site where they will download some spyware material or turn my computer into a HUGE spam server for them but I don't give into the tempatation to see "mature lads licking cock" or "Young russian unique virgins hardcore check pics and movies" because quite frankly, I'm still trying to figure out what's unique about the virgins.

However, I do read it for the odd things that they include in the spam message so they can get past the filters. For example"

"A single idea, if it is right, saves us the labor of an infinity of experiences."

"A heart that loves is always young."

How can you not love spam that gets philosophical on you.

F5 for Refresh

So I've kinda made a few changes around here...added a few more links (some naughtier and more "not work" appropriate than others), started weeding through the "best of" the past 4+ years of my life (wow has it really been almost 5 years since I started writing this blog?) and have even begun renting out my space on BlogExplosion as well...I've even found a way to put video on here as well which I've been trying to figure out for ages....anyhoo....just a little not-so-Spring cleaning here....

Friday's Bad Santa Photo

A scene from the upcoming motion picture:
Poltergeist: The Christmas Movie...On the plus side, this girl will have a great career in porn when she grows up as long as she can keep her mouth open that wide...

Before and After

He went from being a scruffy hottie on the Red Sox to looking like a limp-wristed gay man living in South Beach going out to the clubs until 7 in the morning every night...Johnny Damon...so not hot anymore...I mean he will be good for the Yankees but not good for my baseball fantasy that currently involves Derek Jeter lashed to the best and being covered in whipped cream from head to toe so I can send myself into a diabetic coma trying to lick it all off...

Thursday's Bad Santa Photo

Ya know....after four days of bad Santa photos...I'm starting to feel really good about the decision to not play Santa at the office's children's holiday party...

Moving Time...

Canada here I cum...I mean come....

After ruling that gay marriage was cool, the Canadian Supreme Court ruled swingers clubs were a-okay as well....damn....gotta love that!

Walking to Work...Strike Day 2

So...I was lucky enough to take yesterday off and avoid all of the mass hysteria as people tried to make it into their respective offices and get on with their lives while trying not to discuss the big white elephant (hmmm white elephant...is that racist?) in the middle of the room.

Thankfully Day 2 of The Roger Toussaint Transit Nightmare seemed to go a little better and I even lucked out on getting a ride over the Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan rather than having to make that trek on foot. Out of 10 people in the office, only 4 of us are here and the psychotic one who seems to like taking time off is pretty much refusing to even come in or make an attempt at trying to come into the office which means I get to do her work. Of course, it is about a 2 hour walk into work for me which I'm not thrilled about but I'm here. I thought it would take longer but apparently I walk faster than I thought and was at the Queensboro Bridge in under an hour.

One of the rumors going around the office is that if you stay home from work due to the strike you have to use any of your personal or vacation days you may have left this year. If you don't have any left over, they will (supposedly) come out of your 2006 allotment. Well, if that is the case and people do start losing their vacation days, it's gonna create a ruckus. I can understand letting people have the first day of the strike off if it will cause a burden on THAT day. But after that you should have at least figured out a way to get into the office. Trust me, I put in a good couple of hours online looking to see where the pedestrian entrances are on the bridges I would have to cross so I could get over them with no problems. I didn't enjoy having to make the trek today but I did it because 1) my boss asked me to and I know he could use the help and 2) because the psycho isn't coming in and her work has to get done and there's no one else available to do it. I have four vacation days I could burn off but I'm being a team player on this one so hopefully it will pay off for me in the end. Tomorrow I'm thinking about breaking out the rollerblades which would kill my lower back but get me into the office much quicker. I just hope I can rememebr how to brake properly so I don't kill myself going down some of the bridges. I wish I still had a bike.

As for the strike, I'm on the side of the MTA on this one. I saw what the workers there are making which is significantly more than I am AND they get paid overtime which I don't. They also apparently get free medical care when they retire (which can be as early as 55 -- and they wanted to reduce that to 50!). Toussaint said something about how they didn't want to sell out their "unborn" which I thought was a ludicrous statement because he apparently isn't looking at what the cost of healthcare or pensions will be when the baby boomers retire. He says the workers created the surplus but they didn't. While NYC is clearly a pro-union town, the citizens who ride the MTA every everyday aren't especially appreciative of what's going on or what has happened. This intensified (especially for me) when Toussaint ordered the strike after being told by his national parent union that they did not support the strike and they needed to get back to the negotiating table and when some union leaders said that Toussaint wasn't fully forthcoming with them over the terms of the MTA's offer. Frankly, in my evil world of worlds, I hope that the strike lasts long enough so that it totally wipes out their raise for next year and in fact, I hope it puts them in a deficit so they can all look at Toussaint and say, "And why did we strike when we're making less this year?"

What really galls me is that he thinks the $1 million per day fine that was levied against him and the TWU is excessive.

You know what's excessive? Crippling NYC to the tune of $300-400 million a day. That's excessive.

Toussaint, come out of your fantasy land and into reality. You had a damn good deal on the table that I would be thrilled to have if I was an employee. You walked away to make a point that seems to be biting you on the butt as two-thirds of the city is AGAINST you and the union right now. If I really wanted to make a statement against your leadership of the union, I'd probably consider walking to work every day just so you and your union don't get a dime of my money.

Who knows I may do it anyway.

Isn't this consider extreme torture under the Geneva Convention? I don't know who has the redder face -- Santa or the kid...

Second Tuesday Bad Santa Photo

Oh yeah....this is great for the holidays too...a Fox 5 poll had 66% of the people say that if there was a strike, they would blame the Transit Workers Union. I think I would too...

Is Santa strangling this cat? Come on....look at where his hand is...PETA must be furious....

Can you really blame this girl for losing her shit over this Santa Claus? I would be scared out of my mind as well. What the hell is wrong with Santa's face? Is he a burn victim?

Reading comprehension

I'm sitting on the train into Manhattan and I notice this book that the guy next to me is reading. On the spine of the book, I read "Buttfest."

It was a book by Jimmy Buffet.

Maybe it's not reading comprehension I need but a vision exam.

Is there any excuse...

...for it to take AN HOUR between the opening act and the next act to take place?

Was someone going through some for of emergency detox backstage?

Sad opening acts

You know you don't really have the crowd on your side when your DJ continuously cajoles the audience to, "Make some nooooooooooooooise..."

He's done it about 10 times and we're only about 35 minutes into the opening act...

today's picture

I found this picture on the Village Voice website whlie reading an article about Tookie Williams and for some reason it was just a little too hypnotic for me and I kept starting at it trying to figure out what two of them were doing until I realized that one of the bears was facing in the opposite direction. I will say this though...the ad is VERY eye catching and inventive...damn I wish I was as creative as them...

Holiday Top 10

Taken from him:

The Holiday 10...just do it:

1. What’s your favorite holiday movie?
Hmmm tough one...never been a big holiday movie guy but if cartoon specials count then it's gotta be the "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" cartoon....if I had to actually go the MOVIE route then maybe Home Alone

2. What’s your favorite holiday song (title and artist)?
Hmmm another tough one..."Jingle Bell Rock" was always a favorite and I found a big band version of it that I like but I don't remember who recorded it...

3. What’s the best holiday gift you were ever given and why?
Money that helped pay off my trip to Italy.... :) Okay on a serious side, it would have to be...geez...hmmm...probably one the two teddy bears I still have from my childhood because it's one of the few things that I've had for pretty much my entire life and if I ever lost either of them I would probably cry my eyes out

4. Do you have a special someone to kiss at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s?
No...*pout*...

5. Name your favorite reindeer?
Blitzen...because he's such a slut....

6. Favorite holiday food?
Candy canes...love 'em...if you want the traditional holiday dinner food, it would be my grandmother's oyster stuffing she use to made religiously for large holiday meals...man I hope someone got the recipe for that

7. Snow day…cuddle by the fire or hand me a snowball?
Depends on who I'm cuddling with...

8. What was your New Year’s resolution from this year? Did you stick to it?
To be a nicer person....and we all know how that turned out...

9. Is there really a Santa Claus?
Yes...except he's moved his house to Palm Springs and run elf-slave labor centers in Thailand

10. Present or stocking stuffer?
Depends on how big the stuffer is...did I actually go there???

Picture of the Day

Thought I would throw this up there and just do a series of weird pictures....thought you might like this actual street corner in NYC...

Yes...this really does exist...

Spam (Part II)

There are days when spam mail has its uses...for example, I haven't seen this kind of line in a spam mail in a long time...

"There are some days when I think I'm going to die from an overdose of satisfaction."

That's not spam...that's art...

Saved!

"I am FILLED with Christ's love!"

I watched the moved Saved! this morning (mainly because I couldn't sleep) and all I have to ask is this...

When did Macaulay Culkin become such a cute hot-ass??? With or without the wheelchair I would have done him looking as cute as he did in that movie...

So it's been a while....

Yep it's been a while.

I had nine days of grand hury duty to sit through and what is my first post about after jury duty...

Celebrity suicides...

I'm so freakin' morbid aren't I...

But I didn't know that he had hung himself. I thought he was just a child actor who never got another acting gig.

Four of the Von Erich wrestling family members: David, Kerry, Chris, and Mike.

The woman who did most of the female characters on South Park

The guy who sang the classic oldies hit, "Runaway"

The original host host of The Today Show...I guess the monkey finally got to him...

Addison DeWitt because he was "bored"

Just stupid trivia that I, for some reason, found VERY interesting today...
