It is five minutes until five p.m. I just woke up. For the past six days I have worked second shift and every night I get home at close to midnight. Unfortunately I am all hopped up on Mountain Dew, which causes me to sit up and watch TV or read until about 5 a.m. I usually wake up around 12 and get ready to do it again. Needless to say, my body has not enjoyed this. Apparently it just shut down on me and decided to choose when to wake up.
Anyways, here are some odds and ends that have been going on. Not enough to fill up a post, but some interesting stuff.
Steve and I have our court date Wednesday the 16th of this month. This should be it, no more postponements. About damn time, sick of waiting. Apparently the guy who jumped us is really serious about fighting it instead of taking a plea bargain. That means we will have to testify and be part of a real court case...
Speaking of getting jumped...a guy I work with got jumped the other night. They almost killed him and pretty much made his face a complete mess. He needs multiple surgeries I think to repair his eye socket and jaw bone. Or maybe one massive surgery. He came into work the other night and I thought he was a zombie from Dawn of the Dead.
I only bring this up because there are people at work who keep saying it is funny and he probably deserved it. Let me explain something, even if he did get into a fight and lost, he would not look like this after. His face is the result of being knocked and someone kicked his face repeatedly. That is something no one deserves.
All sorts of exciting news regarding the Pirates. Or not. I mean, Rick Ankiel, JJ Putz, Noah Lowery, Justin Duchscherer. Actually these are not bad players to be looking at, but they all have similar problems: injuries. I understand the Pirates are not likely to go out and sign John Lackey or even Rich Harden, but it would be fun to pretend, right?

Sons of Anarchy
Did anyone watch the season finale? It was insane. Talk about a twist you did not see coming, that ATF chick is a bitch. Framing Peg Bundy for murder, causing Jax's kid to be kidnapped by the Irish. I do think that with Jax and Clay on the same page, they will be a pretty much unstoppable force.
Previews For New Shows
-There is another season of 24, dear god, why?
-Human Target is based on a comic, which I have never read. I bet it will either be really good or really shitty.
-I think the new FX show is called Justified, but I am not sure. I have no clue what it is about, but it has Tim Olyphant and it is on FX, probably be decent.
-Lost is almost here...getting excited.
Let me tell you about something I hate: ribbons. You know the ones, breast cancer, AIDS awareness, blah blah blah. Okay, actually, I do not mind those ones. I just wanted to piss everyone off. I prefer the yellow ones that support the troops, but the others for disease are fine. The ones I am talking about are the ones designed to show support for a sports team.
Yesterday I was driving to work behind an SUV with a yellow ribbon and a black ribbon. I knew the yellow one was for the troops, but could not figure out what the black one was. Support death? As I neared the vehicle, I realized it had gold trim and said "Support the Steelers!"
Does that seem like a slap in the face to all the soldiers risking their lives? "Hey, I support the troops, as long as it does not interfere with football!" These ribbon companies should be bombed. Although, if anyone ever finds a black ribbon that says "I Support Death." Please buy it for me.
That time of year is almost upon us and I need to start shopping for a few people. This year I want nothing. That should make it easy on all you bastards out there who never get me anything. I am looking right at you Ryan. Just kidding, the usual stuff works this year. Prostitutes.
