Well I got my first Christmas done ... first of four!! I actually got through it with out adding any pounds so that is very good thing. I admit it is very tough mainly cause I am a grazer. I love to pick and snack on the holidays. I will admit i am picking on the holiday but i am going to enjoy the holiday some. Speaking of holidays i was out shopping and I stopped to meet a friend at Starbucks and i was in the mood for eggnog. So i asked do you have plain old eggnog? sure the Batista answered would you like it warm and i thought hmmm hot chocolate is good maybe hot eggnog would have the same tummy warming goodness. Well it doesn't he atastes like a mouth full of Porcupine semen!!! good god it was horrid. But moving on...
My parents xmas was good got to hand with brother and family and scored big time on the jersey front. Jerseys were he only clothing I asked for cause they still look good big.

good vibrations

I was reading a new blog and it reminded me of a story. When my daughter was younger she found my wifes "facial massager"  and proceeded to massage her face with much to Alices horror. Fast daughter is now 20 and lives on her own and i was dropping of some furniture. and there is stuff is various stages of unpack. I look on the floor and see a instruction manual like for a toaster or an iron but its not i recognize it as the instruction manual for the "Hitachi magic wand" known in the world as the be all end all Cadillac of vibrators. So she comes back on the room and i call her over and put my arm around her and say darlin future advise next time mom and dad come over you might want to put some things up and i point to the manual. ahhh revenge is sweet

Last but not least

As i have mentioned before I have worked for the old school punk band 7 Seconds for the last 15 years or so. So when me and some friends decided to be a band for halloween there was no choice on who to be. So we got togther one after noon leaned 20 songs and this is the result!


Ok this is from an older band XinvictusX this was back in 1997 so i am young and skinny ;) THe music is in the heavy vain if that is not your cup of tea turn down the volume and watch the kids ...Jump kick monkeys jumpkick!!! ( i am on the right again)

Look ma i am on tv

This is the same band but when our music was used on ESPN


I mentioned that i have played in bands over the years I thought I might share a few of them for you. Please let me know what you think. This is my favorite band i was is Thirty two frames. THis footage was from our reunion show that we did as a Cancer benefit for myself ( yes i played my own cancer benefit) The money went to Make a wish foundation cause i had insurance, and truth of the matter is I just wanted to play with thesse guys again. As per tradition we started our set with a cover song instrumental into our own stuff this time we did a 3 song melody (bonus points if you know any of the songs) then into our own stuff. I am on the right, this was me mid radiation treatments.

2 NSV's

I got 2 count em 2 I say. The first is the bracelets around the old wrist. These were tight and always rested right under my hand at the wrist. If you look now they are hanging out much further down my arm.
The second is ... Well if your wondering what that hunk of leather is well that's the excess belt I no longer need so I just got rid of the excess like my weight :)

Going for the cup!

My wife says I need to bond with my middle son more. I agree we never have found that common ground to bond on. The youngest is a mini me so he was no problem, and the daughter was easy cause I get along with girls better than guys. But mike was a different matter so I desided to enroll him my Hockey league as well as the youngest. The boys have never played hockey, so this should be intresting. The league is made to teach people how to play so that will be good. Mike is a natural athlete so I am curious how fast he will get good at this. I know he will be fast as hell so stay tuned to see us win the Kinslow cup

Me in the last cup game

Admit it you love my rainbow gloves

Skinny and Christmas do not mix.... what do I mean do you ask well I have no idea what to put on my Christmas list. Filling out one for my parents was hard enough (yes I am 38 years old and I still am REQUIRED to make a list with hyperlinks, my parents rock) See I can't ask for any clothes , whats the point i will outgrow them. I did ask for some hockey jerseys cause those are allowed to be big. That a video game and a new hockey stick. So when i had to do one for Miss Alice I can't think of anything besides a watch. I know first world problems but I usually have no problem filling out a list.

one gut staple free!

Had my doctor follow up today. As much as i wanted to go I so didn't wan to go. I work nights so the day before going back to work i flip back to nights by staying up all night. Well I get the family up in the mornign and get them out the door and try to go to bed. The key word is "try" I layed there for about 30 minutes which for me is 29 minutes longer than it should take. I then got up and did not fall asleep till 11 ish I had to be up at 2 for the doctor. uuuggggggg! But i went, lucky for me it was uber quick i was out in an hour total. First step was them removing the staples!!! So much better I was so over the staples. So after that the doc comes in and he looks at the wounds and was like ok looks great any questions and he was out of there. Must of had a golf game. Any way I got my appointment for my first fill which is Dec 28th! I really for the most part haven't been to hungry the mushies are going good

Week one weigh in and one goal down

Well THursady was my weigh in day and what doe sthe scale say......
13.2 Pounds ah ah ah to be exact and the count is exact!!! Yep fellow bandsters I lost 13.2 lbs so far and while in bandster hell to boot. Alice is very proud of me and my restraint over the last week. I was on liquids til yesterday but i was cooking for the wife and kids and managed not to cheat at it and stayed on liquids mind you by day 3 i was so sick of liquids but a quick trip to the store to get a different soup made a huge difference. I also made a protein packed Cuban Black bean soup which is damn good.

I also had my first NSV as well my 42" jeans now will fall straight off my waist. I have them held up with a belt and that will be the case till i fit into the 38's i own!!!

Monday, November 21, 2011

So where were we oh yes I was making out with my wife.... Every surgery is a different experience or should I say every trip with Anastasia. This time i woke up and had to go to the bathroom sooooo bad. I mean i thought i was going to piss the bed. So i ask for the urinal and try to go. I swear my brain is completely wired so I can not pee in a bed even when trying. So it was complete misery until I got to my room. So after crawling out of bed to the bath room to take a piss. Mind you with the amount of fluids they were pumping into me I did the i kid you not every 35 minutes.

So this was my view for the over night visit. It was not to bad the tv was good and I had a morphine pump and this

This is the pain buster ball. basically it drips numbing stuff inside you stomach through a tube so the area stays numb good idea let me tell you.
SO they let me out about 30 hours after the surgery and Alice drove me home. Picked up 50 loratab on the way home. What can i say the doc does not like pain apparently.
The heal up was not to bad i was in very little real pain and almost no gas pain. I will say the noises in the bathroom were epic. you almost had to cheer for them.

Here are my insions

Day 1 of the liquid preop diet, hows it going you ask...well I did not cheat. But i swear i would of clubbed a baby seal for a slice of pizza the kid was eating.
I have been knocking back the sugar free jello like it is was free ;) Which brings me to a slight problem. I do not like artificial sweeteners. The give me a stomach ache and the after taste ugggg. I know this something i am just going have to put on my big boy panties and get used to but i don't wanna that's for sure.

Now the water and jello is alright but then... I came to broth. Now as we all know broth is boring but when you have not had anything good all day I took a drink......
This is my actual face!

Monday, November 14, 2011 midddddddddddnighhhhhhhhttttt

What was I doing...Well eating the last of the big meals, good bye old life. Now mind you during this meal I started to get the twitches of a panic attack. A whole bunch of what the hell of i done!!!!!!! That and a fear of chewing, that's right i said chewing....

Back story , my teeth are not the greatest I have what are called "punk rock teeth" one to many microphones smashed into my mouth does not do wonders for teeth. But the real damage came from my beam radiation when I had cancer. The doc said if you are lucky you will get to keep your teeth... awesome. MY fronts are still good but my back molars are slowly going the way of the buffalo. 2 are completely gone, another is about 3/4 gone and the other one has been rebuilt by  very creative dentistry student. It is very common for me to go .ummmm fuck just lost another piece of tooth.

So anyway when i am eating if chewing gets difficulty or painful i tend just to swallow it down, this will be a problem , I am sure i will figure it out but it made me a little panicky

awesome is the wife

My wife Alice rocks!!! Today was my last supper so to speak. So she skipped some study time which is big deal and fixed me a most awesome dinner. I wont go into the food porn details but it was amazing and I love her
