Christmas Can Finally Begin!!!

I finally got around to decorating to Our Christmas Tree (thanks to Brenda for the extra motivation) and More Importantly I finally got around to seeing The Office Christmas Edition 2006(my favorite episode)...we DVR'd it. You gotta love, "Bro's before Ho's." Is that a reference to Santa? I hope so. Ho Ho Ho.
Also their trip to "Asian Hooters" AKA "Benihana's" and Michael marking the Asian Girl's Arm.

Here's a pic of MY TREE. Enjoy...
Notice in the mirror in behind the Tree you can see us watching The Office on TV.
Take Egg Nog add Decorated Pre-Lit Artificial Tree & The Office-Christmas 2006 Edition and the rest make it "Time for Christmas!!!"

Brake Job & Brother in Law

The other day I noticed my brakes were making a squeeking noise. I knew I needed new brake pads but the number 1 rule of brakes or any car repair is never to go into a repair shop and tell them what you think is wrong with your car, because they will always find a bunch of more things wrong with your car and before you know it, you're taking out a 2nd on your home just to pay for all the repairs.

I went to "Discount Tires" to get my brakes looked at but when I saw their "Prices" on the Car Menu I couldn't resist.

The sign said, "Tire Rotation $4.95 per tire." I said to the guy behind the counter, "I'd like to rotate 1 tire for $4.95." He gave me a totally confused look. He then tried, unsucessfully, to describe why he couldn't rotate just 1 tire. I replied, "Well, if you can't rotate just 1 tire why do you charge per tire?" I asked, "Don't most people get all their tires rotated...why charge by the tire?"

Here's where it gets interesting...A little further down the price list they had "Brake Inspection - Free." In order for them to do a "Brake Inspection" they had to remove all the why couldn't they just shuffle the tires after the free brake inspection. I don't doesn't matter.

Just as I suspected, by the time they were done with the "Free Brake Inspection" they found about $200 worth of "work I absolutely needed." I took their paper work and said, "Thanks but no thanks!"

I went and bought brake pads at the car parts store and Scott, Molly's finance, helped me install my new brakes and I saved a bundle and learned a valuable lesson. Be careful when people tell you about free "fill in the blanks"
Thanks Scott!!

FREEZE TAG. YOU'RE IT!! "Double stamp no quitsies!"

How about an all new game “Blog Freeze Tag?” Old school style like the Morgan kids and Waite kids used to play. It’s just like regular “Blog Tag” except you must fulfill your tagging responsibilities BEFORE you post another entry on your blog.

Here’s how “Blog Tag” works for the newly christened bloggers out there. When you are “tagged” by someone you must post 6 Random/Interesting things about yourself on your blog then you must “tag6 other people and they must do the same and so on and so forth. One more rule…you cannot “tag” anyone who has been “tagged” in the last 14 days.

OK, here are my 6 Facts:

1. I have a serious aversion to “wire hangers” ever since I was a kid and saw the movie “Mommie Dearest.(1981)” To this day I can’t stand having my clothes on “wire hangers!”

2. When I go grocery shopping I like Paper & Plastic. I like my groceries put in Paper bags and I prefer to pay with Plastic. People who write paper check to pay for their groceries IRK me.

3. When people talked about Asparagus making your pee smell different I didn’t believe them until recently. Enough said about that.

4. Forrest Gump (1994) is one of my favorite movies. I watched for the first time in the hotel (PPV) the night before Brenda and I were married.

5. I love music from the 80’s. I don’t know if it’s my Dad rubbing off on me or what; but I love the 80’s like my Dad loves the 60’s.

6. Like Kip from Napoleon Dynamite (2004), I love Technology! If you can push, pull, click click it, I like it and have probably been online looking for the best deal on it!

OK here are the people I am “Tagging.” Uncle Mark, Uncle Sam, Aunt Mary & Gus, Hayley N., Morgan S.,& Tom M.

OK now, get with it and stick to it or get to it and stick with it or whatever!!

I Am Somebody!!!

Here's a classic clip from one of our family's favorite movies. I remember watching the UNEDITED version and being SHOCKED that it was Rated "R". I thought his dog's name was STUPID. Ahh to be young and innocent again. Things are going to start happening to me NOW!! Check out this clip!!

Flying Under the RADAR

As many of my loyal bloggers have noticed I've been flying under the RADAR or as I like to say "Off the Grid" for the last week or so. That's right no cell phone, email, Internet & no plastic in my wallet...come to think of it, no wallet or even shoe laces. I was figuratively flying by the seat of my pants...under the RADAR of course.
The good news is I'm back on track and on the grid with almost all my tools including my PC, Cell Phone, Laptop, e-mail and my "Beautiful Co-Pilot" who stood by thru this entire trial by fire. She's my "Guardian Angel." I would also be totally ungrateful if I didn't thank my Mom & Dad for their continued support and encouragement! I would also like to thank all my Bro's & Sisses and Nieces & Nephews for all the prayers and kind thoughts. I love you guys a ton.
G-Ma & G-Pa Waite stop by sometime and check out my little piece of paradise in my B-Yard.

Love You All,

What I'm Thankful For

Usually on my blog I try to keep things entertaining and try hard to avoid being too mushy or sentimental. I'm going to depart from my rule today and tell everybody what I'm thankful for.

Brenda and I were enjoying our second "business trip" together in less than one week and we starting thinking about all of our blessings. We have been so blessed lately and it all started because my mom and dad took the risk of offering me a job with their company here in Bakersfield. At first we resisted but soon realized what a great opportunity it was. So here's the mushy part...

I want to publicly thank my mom and dad for seeing the potential in me and going out on a limb by hiring me to come work for them. Moving back to Bakersfield and working with dad has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. THANKS Mom & Dad!

Ok, enough with the mushy stuff. The next post will NOT be mushy. I promise.

Movie Review: Tim reviews Dan in Real Life

I am the first one to admit that some of the movies I have recommended in the past ended up only being funny to "moi". But, you know there's a big BUTT coming, I mean BUT coming; I am going to recommend this movie for one reason only.

Are you curious what that reason is?

Hold your horses Tonto, it's coming. This movie was funny enough for a guy not to get bored by stupid dialog and it was "chick-flicky" enough that Brenda's eye's started sweating. So there you have it it's the perfect "guy-funny" and "chick-flick" HYBRID! There I said it now leave me alone, OK?

Spoiler there is even a "built-in pee-break!" If you go see the movie which is PG-13 by the way you can avoid the "13" part of the movie by doing what I did. There's a scene where "Dan" who's in love with his brother's girl friend and he finally decides to confront her about it. He goes into the bathroom so they can talk in private. That's your cue to get up stretch your legs and run to the bathroom because you only have about 2.5 minutes to get back and the only thing you would have missed is how "Dan" escapes from the bathroom without being caught by his family and the "13" part after that where his brother gives him some advice on how to release his pent up sexual frustration. If that one scene was left out "G" or "PG" FOR SURE.

That's why I give this movie the prestigious rating of 4 out of 5 on my finger scale. That's all fingers minus the middle.


To my Bros and Sises the movie takes place at a family reunion and the family plays all sorts of fun games. If you go see this you'll get some ideas for our up-coming Reunion.

November 12, 1989...the first of many best days of my life.

November 12, that is a date I'll never forget. That was 3 days after Brenda and my first date.

Why is that special you ask...

That's the date that Brenda called me up and asked, "So, are we an item?" I said, "sure" and the rest is history.

Today, Brenda and I are celebrating our 18 year anniversary of "going out."

We celebrated by eating the MOST expensive meal we have ever eaten. Thanks Dad!
Tonight we are at a place that calls itself , "California's Best..." I'm not sure what the "..." means but TONIGHT I will find out.

The following is for Brenda the rest of you guys can stop reading here.

I love you so much Brenda. I am so glad you made that call 18 years ago. We are definitely an ITEM! I can't wait to see what the next 18 years bring. Nighty night sleep tight!

You're NEVER to old to Pee Your Pants.

I would like to thank Emily M. for the Target Card she sent me for my B-Day. I used it to buy an iTunes Card and I got the Best present I've ever gotten. It also happens to be the thing that made me pee my pants. The best $9.99 I ever spent. Jim Gaffigan's CD Called "Beyond the Pale." Check it out on iTunes. ***WARNING*** It's so funny you'll need to listen wearing "pull-ups."
Trust me.

Water, water, water everywhere!!!!

We had an awful tragedy at our house last night. Our washing machine which has been broken was finally “fixed” yesterday and I put in my first load last night. I put in the load of laundry then decided to ride my exercise bike which was in the room next to the laundry room for 30 minutes. When I got off I was sloshing in inch thick water in the carpet. The kitchen and laundry room were 2 inches high with water. It was awful! You know there are always two sides to every story. Also, I believe that a spoonful of Sugar helps the Medicine go down. So here it is the sugar and medicine.

Our house was flooded.
Sugar: It wasn’t TOILET water. Yuk.

Medicine: It happened at night, 9:45pm.
Sugar: It happened before Lowe’s closed.

Water all over the Kitchen, Laundry Room, Family Room and Office.
Sugar: I got the new “Wet/Dry ShopVac” I’ve always wanted.

Medicine: It was a 5 man clean-up job.
Sugar: Molly & Scott were there to help with the clean-up.

Medicine: The SEARS Kenmore Brand Washer is the reason for the flood.
Sugar: The washer is under warranty and SEARS said they will make it all better.

Medicine: The washer will be out of commission a couple more days.
Sugar: The dryer works fine.

Medicine: Both Brenda and I received & ignored promptings that we should check on the washer.
Sugar: We both received promptings.

Joey Smashes Kobayashi's Record!!

As many of you know I am a BIG fan of Competitive Eating. I am a member of the IFOCE (International Federation of Competitve Eating).
This weekend was the World Krystal Burgers Eating Championship in Chattanooga. Takeru Kobayashi held the world record for eating 97 burgers in 8 minutes. Joey Chestnut came into the competition ranked #1 in the world with #2 ranked Patrick Bertoletti nipping at his heels. A couple weeks ago Patrick beat Joey in the World Buffalo Wing eating competition where he ate more than 4 pounds of Wings in 10 minutes. Sunday Joey Smashed Kobayashi's Krystal Record by downing 103 Burgers in 8 minutes.

Here is a picture of Patrick Bertoletti (#2), Me & Joey Chestnut(#1) from The World Rib Eating competition where I competed aginst them. I ate almost 2 pounds of rib meat in 12 minutes. Joey ate 7 pounds by the way, that's why he's #1.

At that same Rib eating competition Rich "the locust" Le Fevre (#8) broke his front tooth during the competition and swallowed it and kept going to eat over 5 pounds of meat. Here's a picture with Rich and me BEFORE he lost his front tooth.

Nice Smile Rich!

I've been Tagged...Fiddle Sticks

So I guess the way this works is like a twisted form of Electronic Chain Letter. I have to post 6 Random Facts About me then "TAG" 6 other people with Blogs (small gag) and make them do the same thing.

Random Facts

1-I hate Chain Letters especially the Electronic kind where there is a threat involved like...if you don't forward this e-mail to 6 people you'll have 7 years bad luck.

2-I have only thrown up ONCE in the last 16 Years. I hate throwing up.

3-I HATE cottage cheese. (curdled milk??? Big Gag. But not enough for anything to come up.)

4-I used to think Blogging was for Homo's or do I say Gayish, gaylicous, gayfaboulous. Maybe I'm just a HomoPhobe...No I'm NOT. I love Gay people. Please don't leave negative comments, especially you Sherod.*** Random fact: the word BLOG is a portmanteau. A portmanteau (IPA: /pɔrtˈmæntoʊ/) is a word or morpheme that fuses two or more words or word parts to give a combined or loaded meaning. (eg. homophobe, bloghater, etc.)

5- I've accidentally French Kissed my dog before. (gag. I know.)

6-I once got caught wearing my sister's underwear. (sorry Anna)

Ok here's the fun part I am tagging 6 Random People I don't even know. I know, I love taking risks.

I tag:

1. Newt from Minnesota
2.Mrs. Lafoon from Roswell Georgia.
3.Tall Penguin from Canada.
4.Fox Head from Wisconsin.
5.The Church Lady
6.Faces of Greif from Iraq.

I know most of these people are female. This is random and FABULOUS!

Ok NO 7 years of bad luck for me.

Trunk or Treat

Well, tonight I finally had a reason to clean out my trunk. Our ward had our annual Trunk or Treat. Brenda and I dressed up in our Japanese outfits and we decorated our trunk with Japanese stuff and cranked Japanese Music. Our display was the best. Plus, I gave away fistfulls of candy to each kid in our ward.
I can't wait to have kids of our own we can dress up and send out to collect candy for US from other Suckers like us. Gotta make sure there's no razorblades in the Laffy Taffy.
Good Times!

"Oh! You're the Cripple!"

Today we went to church in our new ward for the first time. Good ole 2nd Ward. You guys remember how much fun 2nd ward was right? Even Brenda's familiar with some of the members because they're from the old Stockdale Ward. For the last month or so Brenda has been walking into church with my help. It has surprised some people who have not been kept up to date on Brenda's improvement. The best renuion happened after church when we were walking out to our car. Sister Jorgenson who was sitting in Bishop Davis' car stopped us and asked our names. I said, We're the Waite's." She asked which Waite do you belong to. I said, "My dad is Greg Waite." Then she asked what's your wife's name (meaning maiden name) I said, "She's a Sanchez." Then sister Davis leaned over to Sister Jorgenson and said, "She's Marilyn's daughter." They knew the Sanchez' from Stockdale Ward. Then sister Jorgenson said with a surprised look on her face, "Oh! You're the Cripple! I didn't recognize you." We smiled. "Yep."
We talked about it on the way home and laughed because I guess that's how "Old Timers" talk.
BTW, Brenda's not the cripple anymore. Here she is STANDING outside our house. Halleluia. (Big Smile)

How do you catch a Blog? When you catch one, what do you feed it?

I heard this noise outside my window last night. At first it was a faint whisper that I couldn't make out. Then it gradually got louder but was still incomprehensible. Finally it got loud enough and I understood what the voice was saying. Now I just wanted to know who said, "Get a blog."

It was Toby! OMGosh. I didn't know he knew what a Blog was!
