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.
