Book Review

This book really can't be classified as anything but porn.
I knew kind of what it was about when my sister gave it to me,
but I'd have to say it still shocked me with the
epic, dirty details.
I was unaware that a New York Times best seller could
have such graphic sex descriptions in it.

All that being said it was a great book and I never lost interest.
It starts off fast and keeps you glued to the pages the
entire read.
I'm looking forward to reading the next two books in the
series, but I think I'll take a break and read something that
doesn't require me to read in private for a while.
A little piece of advice:

This book is not something to read while
family members are in the same room.
Though, I know my mom and sister both read it.
I'm trying not to dwell on that too much....

Pretty much sums it up.

In other news, here's something I made for
my good friend Becky.
It was a house warming present!

They didn't come out exactly like I had planned,
but as long as she enjoys it, I'm happy.

Until next time...
Laters, baby.

Where Did The Time Go?

I haven't written a blog since March 19th?
I guess I should catch this thing up to my busy life.

Let's see.....
I joined Powerhouse Gym and it was
going fairly well until the last couple weeks when work
picked up.
Hopefully when class ends I'll have some time
to go again.


I have....
Gone to the Science Center
Donated something to charity
Started a new tattoo

My "write more blogs" has significantly
gone out the window.
I will attempt to remedy that.
I have also read two and a half books and I have
a forth on my coffee table waiting.
So hopefully I'll be able to cross that off soon.

Short one today.
Writers block.

How I Became Friends With Your Mother.

A few months ago I started watching the very
good show "How I met Your Mother".
There are plenty of reasons to love this show but
there are also plenty of similarities between this show and
the greatest show ever made.
I'm not one of those people that think HIMYM is a rip
off or anything of the sort.
Merely a tribute while also maintaining some originality.
In case no one believes me, here are the facts...

Let's start with the obvious.

Both set in New York
Live above a bar/coffee shop
The classic "will they/won't they" relationship
(Ross and Rachel, Ted and Robin)
No one knows what Barney or Chandler does for a living
The "sleeps with lots of chicks" guy
(Joey and Barney)
The dopey guy that marries a hot girl
(Marshall and Lilly, Monica and Chandler)

Now to get more in depth.

The "last night" Ted and Marshall, Monica and Rachel
spend together before moving out is filled with fights.
Ted and Marshall each take a sword, Monica and Rachel
each take a candle stick.

Joey and Barney end up falling for best friends
ex girlfriend.

Ted and Ross both have fairly boring jobs none of the
other characters want to hear about.
They both end up becoming professors....aaaand
end up dating a student.
They have the worst luck with love.
Both bought cars and sold them shortly after.
Both correct grammar or pronunciation.
Ka-ra-tey and encyclo-pay-dia

Chandler and Marshall both wanted to do different things
with their lives than they ended up doing

Chandler and Monica, Marshall and Lily
go to Vegas/Atlantic city and chicken out on getting
Then eventually both are married by the "ladies man".

Rachel and Robin both date a douchey
foreign guy.
Both make a horrible food dish the others pretend
to enjoy.
Both fly across the world to stop a wedding.
Both have a hard time making it in the city and
desire a glamorous job.
Both come from different background than the
rest of the group and are made fun of for it.

Joey Tribbiani technically invented the naked man

Marshall and Ted, Ross and Chandler
best friends after being college roommates.

Chandler and Barney come from a very strange
home life.

Thanksgiving is always a debacle

I'm sure there is a ton more but keep in mind, I've only
seen How I Met Your Mother twice through as
oppose the 806820347523 times I've seen Friends.
Both shows are great and I look forward to seeing where
they go with HIMYM.

Teejay out.

Things That Rock #5

Wow, I've really been neglecting my blog lately.
For shame.

Home Is Where Ohio Is.

People always seem to hate where they're from.
No one is happy where they are and wish
they lived some place else.
I want to know, why?
I have always loved Ohio and I could never understand
why everyone hates it so much.
Blah, Blah, it snows all the time.
So what?
I'm starting to think people hate it because it's the "cool"
thing to do.
This is where you grew up and it will always be where
you're from.
Embrace it.
These are the reasons I think you should love Ohio,
or at least why you have no reason to hate it.


It's green and beautiful away from the city.

Peninsula bike path.

MELT bar and grilled

Snow. (I know people hate it and it can be excessive
here, but I couldn't live somewhere it didn't snow
on Christmas.)


We have beaches and Lake Erie can look like an
ocean. Plus we've done a pretty good job of cleaning
it up so far.

No natural disasters. We have tornadoes, but come on,
when was the last time we actually had a bad one?
(Knock, knock, knock)

We're at the top of the food chain.
No alligators, big cats, or dangerous bears.

Better bars.
I've been a ton of places and the bars suck everywhere
but here.

Put In Bay.


Rock Hall.

George Clooney and Ron Jeremy?
From Ohio.

Alan Cox Show.

Whips Ledges or any metro park area.

Playhouse Square.

Cleveland pride for their sports.

Cedar Point.

Haunted Ohio.

Hocking Hills.

Chagrin Falls, Ohio City, Lakewood,
and Tremont.

Football Hall of Fame.
(If you're into that)

Science Center.

No terrible traffic.

Muchos Buenos.

Four distinct seasons.
(Even though winter lasts a little longer)

Historic Zoar.

Art Museum and art schools.

The hot dog was invented here.

The Wright brothers and Neil Armstrong.

My family and people I love are here.

Low taxes and cost of living.
(Try paying $400 rent anywhere else)

A low number of tan, muscular, douche bags.

A Christmas Story.

No really scary bugs.

New casino.
(If you're in to that)


Brew Kettle.

A high number of bearded men live here.

It smells like fresh air.

It says Oh Bye O when you leave the state.

There are so many more reasons
I'm just at work and don't have time to list ALL
of them.
Really think about it.
Is Ohio THAT bad?

Into the Kiln.

My Zora Link is finally assembled
and ready to be fired.
He ended up being quite a bit taller than
Deku Link so  wasn't able to put Navi on him.
I'll have to make her separately.

Fancy heh?

He'll look better once he's painted.
On to the wheel!

January In Review.

Well I can't be too hard on myself with my list
considering it's only February.
So far I've donated to charity,
and I've read one out of my four books.
I'm off to a good start.

I should probably specify on the "make a friend"
part on my list.
I have no problem making guy friends and
I've made a couple already this year.
I just find it really hard to make friends with girls.
Sometimes you just need girls to talk to.
So I'd like to make one girl friend this year.
Sounds easier than it is, especially at my age.
Fingers crossed.

I've been discovering some new TV shows
that I'm really enjoying.
Specifically Being Human US.
It's really how supernatural creatures SHOULD
be portrayed.
Not battling it out over a girl or whatever they're
doing in books and movies these days.
Watching this show has given me yet another reason why
Sam Huntington is an underrated actor.
I've always thought he was but this show is just another
tally on the board.

I mean think about it...



(the only good spoof movie known to man)





Those are just the movies I've seen.
I'm sure the other ones he was in are just as good
Minus the Caveman TV show...but hey, every actor has one.
He is also ridiculously good looking and I am seriously
considering bumping someone to put him on my five...

Yeeeeea, swoon.

It's been real.
