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.
