DRIVE MARKETING CHRISTMAS PARTY 07


We just had our annual christmas party for Drive Marketing at the upscale French version of HOOTERS. It was fun and everybody except alex had a good time. WE have a gift exchange and Drive provides all of the gifts but they range anywhere from a big screen HD tv or a new 16GB iPod touch to flashlights, cutting boards or a $10 gift card to BOONDOCKS.

After the wedding reception, traditionally a portion of the wedding cake may be stored, and eaten by the couple at their first wedding anniversary, or at the christening of their first child. Sometimes this portion is the top tier, and sometimes a portion of the piece from which the bride and groom fed each other, depending on the local customs.

This is Jim. his wife saved some cake but they forgot about it and it stayed in the back of the freezer for a few years.
After nine years, instead of eating it together, we took it out and jim shot it with his 12 gauge.
I am not sure what this says about their marriage.

thanks again for the shotgun you got me for my birthday megan.

Hannukah Album

"There are two types of people in this world: Those who like Neil Diamond, and those who don't. My ex-wife loves him."
Bob Wiley

I have been in the not liking Neil Diamond category for most of my life. It wasn't until i saw the movie "saving silverman" that i gained some sort of appreciation for the man, but i still struggled with his morals.
What kind of Jewish man releases a Christmas album?Anyway, i have been kicking around this concept album for a while and i was thinking of pitching it. If anyone has any contacts with the musical director of the mormon tabernacle choir, let me know.

LAST RACE OF '07

Stacey Keller


It is time for another spotlight of someone i know.
Today i am spotlighting Stacey Keller. She is 28 years old and a virgo.
Her home town is Baltimore, Ohio where she was raised on the family pig farm.
She likes barbeques, romantic horseback rides, football and she makes noises like a seal when she gets excited.
Stacey says that there are 2 highlights in her life up to this point.
The first happened when she was crowned the Dairy Princess. The second highlight happened when she was at the sundance film festival and she was in a room on her cell phone when steve carell walked in talking on his cell phone. They weren't talking to each other but, the were doing the same thing at the same time.

Stacey is looking for someone that can hold a job.

Someday she would like to settle down on her family pig farm in Ohio and turn it into a beet farm and put a Bed and Breakfast on it.

If you are looking for someone that is good with children and needs a date for her company christmas party on December 17th, call her at 435.640.12XX

Everybody that attended the race on saturday had a good time, except Bryce. At least i didn't have to stop and fix his flat tire for him on this ride.

Denim is back


I like to think of myself as being on the cutting edge of fashion.
THhis is why i thought i would give both of my readers a heads-up on the next big fashion swing. It is the Denim, on Denim, on Denim. This look isn't just for the Gay urban cowboy, this is the real deal.

Lucky i had these on my desk.

another line of work is removed from my possiblities

several years ago i went and played a soccer tournament in arizona over Martin Luther King jr day.
while it was freezing in utah, it was 72 degrees in arizona and sunny. the problem with it being 72 degrees in january is that they are never able to get grass to grow on their soccer fields. When we showed up to play in this tournament, the fields were large sections of dirt with a goal at both ends and a white line around the outside. During one of the games, i slid for some reason (probably to score a goal becasue i am such an offensive threat on the pitch) and after sliding remembered that there wasn't any grass on the field. One of the players there had a girldfriend that came with him and that was trained in some sort of medical field. Even though i had never met her, she insisted on taking care of my injuries.
My injuries healed as much as they could have but, combined with a few bicycle accidents and various other incidents, my better half was left somewhat blemished.
As i was getting into the shower this morning, someone pointed out that i have a few various scars on my backside.
At this time of year, a lot of people are thinking about doing a little extra work or getting a part time job to help with Christmas. I was never out actively auditioning, or seeking work to be a butt double, but in the back of my mind it was always there as an alternative. Although it is a long shot, i still have the option to go back through medical school and become a doctor. I don't want to, but if i had to, I could probably manage a KFC restaraunt. The realization that i will never be a butt double, even if i wanted to, was like having a ton of bricks dropped on my head. Sorry megan, i was going to get you a new lexus, like in the commercial with a big red bow tied around it sitting in the driveway, but this Christmas is going to be a little tight.

A NOD FROM THE ACADEMY

I didn't want to jinx my chances, but there has been a lot of buzz surrounding my blog lately. people saying it was one of the best they have seen and things like that. I don't know if i would go as far as to say it was "the best" but probably in the top 6.
below is a letter i received in the mail today that makes it all worth it for me.
I feel like i have finally been recognized by my peers and co-bloggers.

i didn't get new shoes but stacey at my work did.
