the invite has arrived . . . .

Happy to report that the invitation/details for my cousin's wedding has arrived. It'll be on October 18th (the ceremony is at 12 noon, and a reception will be at 5 pm), with a brunch the next morning from 10-1.

I'm also glad that it's not going to be formal, so I don't have to go through the process of renting a tux, although if it was formal, I would have gladly picked out a nice black tux, nice shirt, nice bubble gum colored vest/tie, nice cufflinks/studs, nice pocket square (tophat, gloves and cane would have been over the top, but way cool!). At best, I may be getting my suit altered because of the weight that I've lost . . and may also be looking for a nice black vest to compliment my suit.

I'm still amazed that I'm actually invited to a wedding (I've honestly thought it would never happen to me). I know it'll be a nice ceremony/reception.

I Want Barack

Found this interesting music video on youtube.

A few months ago, Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French re-recorded his group's classic anthem "I Wanna Rock" with new lyrics in support of Barack Obama . . . "I Want Barack"

Funny bumper stickers

Just some funny bumper stickers I'd like to have on my car someday:

I smile because I don't know what the hell is going on
How's my driving? Call 1-800-Eat-Shit
Stupidity is not a handicap. Park elsewhere!
Horn Broken - Watch for finger
Hang up and drive
Calculus and alcohol don't mix: Don't drink and derive
Drugs lead nowhere, but it's the scenic route

More may follow another day

Limerick Time

Wow . . . this time I didn't wait almost a whole month in between journal entries!

Anyhow, just came up with a couple of amusing limericks (of course, given the nature of them, I won't be repeating them in polite company :). . .

There once was a man from Nantucket
Who went to sit on a bucket
He had a bad day
He didn't get a lay
So all could say was "Fuck it"

There once was a man from Venus
And this man's name was Seamus
He had ladies all day
Well what could you say
He had a rocketship for a penis

George Carlin (1937-2008)

A couple of weeks ago, one of the best comedians of all time . . . George Carlin died. He's probably up there at the great comedy gig in the sky raising hell with Richard Pryor :D

And only a few days before his death, he was announced as the 2008 recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor . . . which will be awarded posthumously in November at the Kennedy Center

This is a vid of his bit "Farting in Public" from his 1996 HBO Special "Back in Town".

RIP Mr. Carlin . . . you were fucking awesome!

It's joke time . . . .

Well been a while since I posted an entry here . . . even longer since I did a joke so here I go :)

Heaven is a place where:
The lovers are Italian
The cooks are French
The mechanics are German
The police are English
The government is run by the Swiss

Hell is a place where:
The lovers are Swiss
The cooks are English
The mechanics are French
The police are German
The government is run by the Italians

Have some laughs :D

Happy (early) Mother's Day

Just a happy early Mother's Day wish to all the mothers out there.

And especially to my mother. I'm not the perfect son, but I do try and be a good son most of the time (though I am a little odd).

As for what I'll do for my mother for a Mother's Day present. Well I'll probably treat her to lunch.

Wow, I actually have something to say . . . .

It's been a while since I've posted an actual entry (instead of music videos).

To start off with, last Saturday I saw the heavy metal touring festival Gigantour (headlined by Megadeth and featuring In Flames, Children of Bodom, Job for a Cowboy and High on Fire) at Merriweather Post Pavilion in my hometown of Columbia, MD. It was really awesome, a lot of metalheads were there and I did have a couple of beers there. As headliners, Megadeth had the longest set (about an hour an a half) and the other groups had 45 minute sets (with approximately a 20 minute break between sets so equipment/hangings could be swapped out). A great 5.5 hours (4:30-10pm) of headbanging and loud music ringing in the ears.

Second thing is, starting a new job tomorrow. I'm very pleased and grateful that someone thought highly enough of me and I got this job. A recruiter from CDI Government Services found my resume online and offered me this job which I accepted. It's a 3 month project (60 business days with hours being 8-5 Monday thru Friday) with one of their clients (APPTIS) working on a PC/Laptop migration project (Windows 2000 to Windows XP) on site at the Federal Trade Commission in Washington DC. I'll likely be part of the hardware team (unloading the machines and filling out the necessary serial numbers on asset tracking forms), but I did say I'd be willing to learn from the software team if a need so arises. Of course, I'll have to commute into DC via Metro Subway and/or MTA Commuter bus (which I don't mind one bit, heck my father commuted into DC for 30 years, some of those years were before the Metro subway system even opened up). For those who don't know, the FTC is at 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, not that far from the US Capitol building or the White House. It's also right near the National Archives and the Justice Department building.

I'm proud of myself and so are my parents. I have no idea what will happen in the future, all I have to do is concern myself with the here and now: Do a great job on this project, make money and get good working experience.

Have a nice day
