Conversations With a 2 Year Old

Published by under Personal

Well, not quite 2. She doesn’t turn 2 until next month. But this is an actual conversation from supper.

Zoe: There is a spider
Me: Where is a spider?
Zoe: There is a spider
Me: Where is it?
Zoe: In my mouth
Me: In your mouth?
Zoe: I ate it

O RLY? I mean, mom’s cooking isn’t always gourmet, but spiders?

Turd Ferguson

Published by under Entertainment

When I had first heard about hulu some months ago when it was in beta, I tried to sign up but apparently I didn’t make the cut since I never heard back from them. When I had heard they released the “ready for primetime” version to the public a while ago, I was slow to check them out. Frankly, I don’t really watch much network television and had to work up the effort to go check them out. Well, this weekend I motivated myself to check it out. Mostly to see the programming they had on it since I had heard they had a lot of older stuff on their.

I was actually fairly impressed with the selection of shows they provided. I also noticed the clips feature that they have along with their episodes and quickly went looking for a clip I’ve been hoping to find it made it’s way illegally on youtube or metacafe or the like.

No dice elsewhere, but hulu had it. So I played it for the kids and now “Turd Ferguson” has become a pretty popular phrase around the house must to the chagrin of my wife. Bonus #2, it has an embed feature. So if you don’t know the clip I’m talking about, here you go.

It comes with commercials, but that doesn’t bother me so much. They are short and for the most part unobtrusive. The real gold with this clip was listening to my 9 year old son explain to his friends why “threeve” was funny without giving any real context. They pretty much just looked at him and gave him what was either a pity laugh or just a token laugh cause they knew it should be funny and didn’t want to lose face.

Any way, a few more services like this and I’ll have trouble trying to figure out why we need cable and satellite services. I mean, on demand is way better right? Ok, still wouldn’t be good for sports stuff until it would become real time, cause who likes to watch the games when they know the results?

I think it’s a truly innovative service and I am going to look forward to seeing more things like this. Here is another bonus video (happens to be the all time most popular clip on the site currently) so cheers and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I’m actually surprised I haven’t seen this clip on Yakshi’s site yet.

And With the 12th Pick in the 2008 NFL Draft…

Published by under Sports

The Denver Broncos chose Ryan Clady. I think it ended up being a good pick. From everything I read leading up to the draft, that was the guy they wanted at that pick, so things worked out for them.

I haven’t posted much on the happening of the Broncos since the end of the season, but I’ve actually been following pretty close this year. Most years in the past, I would occasionally catch a waiver update and read the draft summary until preseason started. The internet has really been a dream for a sports fan though. It’s easy as hell to keep up with every little quiver made by the team. Roll in other fan blogs into the mix, and I’ve got more information than I could ever hope to digest.

Last year, in terms of being a Broncos fan, could be summed up with the term “It sucked ass”. There were lots of weak spots and disappointments in a season that started out with a lot of expectations and anticipation after narrowing missing the playoffs in ’06 and what seemed to be a good plan of action to address what went wrong. What happened? Life was hauled in on a dump truck and dumped on Mile High Stadium Circle. People were injured, people didn’t perform and despite having an extraordinary horseshoe crammed up Shanahan’s ass when it came to anything having to do with a game winning kick, there was just a lot of unlucky moments that happened over the year (I hate both Green Bay and Chicago, BTW).

Now, I don’t need to complain about it. Last year is done and no use bitching about it. The only thing that can be done is learn from it. What did we learn? Denver’s D line sucked and had zero depth. Jevon Walker, while is awesome when he is healthy, isn’t healthy consistently. GL to you Raiders, BTW. Denver does not have a consistent running back, but a lot of people that can just jump in and pretend to have been there all year. Brandon Marshall has the potential to be a beast. And, as a whole, the defence is on the verge of needing geritol. I’ll admit it. At the end of the season when it looked as though Mr. Walker was gonna take his ball and go home, I was more than a bit discouraged. I could see a lot of holes and little in the way of plugging the holes.

3 months later, I have to say, the outlook is a lot better. I have really been impressed with the way they tried to address problem areas. They picked up a whole crap load of receivers. At least one of them will fill the hole left by Walker. There is Keary Colbert, Samie Parker and Darrel Jackson to go along with Brandon “put my arm through a TV” Marshall and Brandon Stokley. Still need a bit of depth, but definitely a good start. They filled up the whole defence with fresh faces although they were reasonable against the path. What disappointed me was that the one glaring hole that they didn’t address (they revamped the LB’s, signed 4 safeties and secured their existing CB’s) was the line. They didn’t have a consistent DT all of last year and I figured it was coming in the draft. Well, I was pleasantly surprised by the trade for the Jets’ Dewayne Robertson leaving few holes to rely on the draft for. Probably a good thing since they only had 2 day one picks this year.

Oh, what was Denver’s other pick today? A small wide receiver that should help shore up special teams as a return guy and bring some depth. Seems to be a good pick. For Sunday, I export more of the same as they have 7 day 2 picks. Depth should be written all over it.

Ok, so I know most of you don’t care. Well, here’s the thing. I’m starting to get pretty pumped about this season and last time I checked, it was my checking account this site was being paid from. So suckit. As long as it interests me, it’s gonna hit the front page. I can’t wait.

So Who’s Right?

Published by under Entertainment,Personal

Amy: Heidi Fleiss to Appear on ‘Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew’
Me: and?
Amy: interesting
Me: howso?
Amy: former prostitute/drug addict rehabbing with has-been actors-how is that not interesting?
Me: it’s not interesting cause it’s expected
Me: if it was like
Me: um, rush lumbaugh, it would be interesting
Me: heidi fleiss sounds pretty standard
Amy: rush limbaugh would be boring
Me: but why would I think some one I would expect to be on the show would be interesting?
Me: doesn’t sound noteworthy to me
Amy: whatever
Amy: she’s not really a celebrity-more like an ex-con
Me: You saw season 1, how many of those were truly “celebrities”?
Me: celebrity is used in the context of “People you may have heard of”
Me: and a baldwin

This could also be subtitled, how to annoy your wife in what started out to be an innocent IM chat. So who’s right? I’m not saying Fleiss wouldn’t make a better personality on the show, although from what I’ve seen of her, she seems pretty subdued, but as for which sounds like more interesting news?

Anonymous Notes

Published by under Personal

I’ll be the first to admit, not knowing things bothers me. Not so much knowledge of random stuff, but not being aware of what goes around me. Needless to say, I was a bit bothered by the random sticky note stuck to my monitor this morning that said “Awesome pictures Antony”. Yes, spelled just that way.

I am more annoyed that I don’t know who put it there than the fact that they spelled my name wrong. I just know this is gonna bother me all day. It’s not easy being neurotic.
