Last night I took v2 out for dinner

and he took me to the cleaners. We went to Lonestar for steak because that's what men do we eat dead animals. Anyway v2 says that he wants to get steak and I asked him if there was a kids steak on the menu since last time I thought there was. Well now there isn't and here's where it gets pricey. He looks at the big menu and sees something that is described as having bacon with it. Of course he wants filet mignon, and sure I said okay. The waitress takes our order and we ordered an appetizer and the steaks come with soup and a potato item. After Nate gets done ordering the watiress just smiles at v2. I give her this "eh waht can you do?" look. She brings out the food and every time she passes the table she just grins at v2 totally housing it on the steak and everything. I take him home and tell his mom what he ordered and she said why did you let him order that and v2 says, "because Dad's nice." When I though about how he answered that this morning when I woke up I have to tip my cap to v2 with comeing up with a good cheesy answer. I guess since v2 is the carter member of my fan club I can afford to buy him a little filet mignon every once in a while. I figure I can get another 5 or 6 months out of last night by riding v2 about the filet mignon at opportune times. For my birthday I got the first season of "24" yes I realize I'm what 6 seasons behind, don't you judge me. I've never seen a minute of the show but every time I see a commercial for it I think, "why am I not watching that show?" Well now I can start watching from where it began.

Going to pick up the Zune today after work, I' ve been researching and obsessing over this purchase for like two months now.

Well it wasn't a disaster...

The little thing that I though might have been a dating disater last weekend wasn't too bad actually. While technically I wouldn't call it a date, it was one of those stupid let's get coffee type deals, it didn't go too badly. Trust me I've had it go much worse. We hung out for almost two hours talking and stuff and there were some parts of my life I wish I would have played closer to the vest. Two in particular, first my love of bad music and secondly my love of seeing people falling down. Honestly I don't know how my love of terrible music came up but I admitted to some things that I probably shouldn't have. Namely that I saw the Club Dance MTV tour back in high school and Gerardo (Rico Suave) was on the lineup. At least it wasn't Milli Vanilli which I beleive was on the tour before the one I saw. Okay you're wondering now who topped the concert? C&C Music Factory and Tony Toni Tone (Their hit was called "Feels Good', not really a bad song). Once it was out there I just had to cut loose on all the bad music that I like, I was prettyy much on fire. I think she was laughing with me, who knows she may have been laughing at me. Then the love of people falling down came out when I saw a guy take a near fall out of the corner of my eye with a drink and a pretzel. I had to turn to my left to stop from laughing at the guy and had to explain why I had to shift. Turns out that apparently she has a weak spot for laughing at people falling down. She travels a lto for work so we haven't been able to set up a "real date" yet but early next week we'll get that in gear.
Then that Saturday night my brother and I went to see Lil Jimmy Norton at Zanies in Vernon Hills. Damn that guy is funny. Lucky Louie the HBO show he was in comes out on DVD ON 1/30, get it at Best Buy and you get the Louis CK One Night Stand for free with it. I may go see Rich Voz another O&A regular at the Improv at Woodfield in the middle of February.

I've got another pick show for you to check out.

If you remember two seasons ago I called that My Name is Earl and The Office were going to be funny hit shows and well I was right wasn't I? I've got another TV comedy gem called "The Knights of Prosperity" its on ABC on Wednesday nights. The basic premise of the show is a janitor put together a crew of his friends and they are going to rob Mick Jagger to compinsate for their crappy lives. Its got real smart writers and the crew is an interesting band of characters. The crew even has a hot Latina chick in it. Get on the bandwagon soon because the story goes episode to episode its the Lost of the comedy genre. So check it out Wednseday nights on ABC "The Knights of Prosperity".

Official kick off to the new year

2007 has officially started as of now as people all across the world, dare I say galaxy wait for the publishing of "The List" to start of 2007. Well here is is with three new additions with two of them in the Top 10:

16. Victoria
15. Anna Davlantes
14. Vanessa Marcil
13. Molly Sims
12. Kate Beckinsale-our first new entry on the list. Famous actress you've probably seen her in all kinds of movies like Underworld. I didn't see Underworld since that film is outside my realm of nerd activities. She was in the absolutely brutal movie "Click" with Adam Sandler. She was the single highlight of the movie.

11. Jaime Pressly
10. Jennie Finch
9. Jennifer Aniston
8. Kate Hudson
7. Carrie Underwood-American Idol winner country singer. Chicks who can sing=hot.

6. Jenny McCarthy
5. Alessandra Ambrosio-VS model

4. Marisa Miller
3. Rachel Hunter
2. Charlize Theron
1a. Rachel McAdams
1. Reese Witherspoon

As has been the case for sometime now the top spots remain the same and I am still waiting for you to call Reese. I've seen pictures of you out and about around town, I bet she doesn;t own a phone that's why I haven't heard from her.
