I’m a Failure as a Nerd

Yes.  Yes I am.  Why?

I have yet to see The Avengers.

You did read that correctly.  This movie has made almost $500,000,000.  Not one of those dollars was mine.  You may be asking yourself, “Why?” You try to go see a movie with a three-year-old who will not sit still for all the money in the world.  I had a lot of bad experiences with babysitters when I was a kid, so I can’t just leave him with someone so my wife and I can go see it.  It looks like I will be waiting for it to come to Blu-Ray.

On another topic, I am also a failure as a nerd because I own a Wii.  Only a Wii.  No X-Box.  No PS3.  Just a lonely Wii.  Well, that is about to change, because, ladies and gentlemen, I will finally be joining 2006 tonight when I purchase an X-Box 360.  Yay for me!  I’ll finally get to play all of the hot new games, like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Dead Rising.  Maybe even WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2010!

Leave me alone.  I love my wrestling games.  I love creating characters in my wrestling games.  So na na, boo boo.

On a totally non-failure topic, I finally got my family out of the spider infested dump we lived in for over two years, and our new place is like heaven.  We are all so much happier here, and thankful we no longer have slumlords for managers.  If we ask them to fix something, we’re treated like, well, people, no as nuisances.  And, no brown recluses!  We can sleep at night without wondering when our son will be bitten by one of those nasty buggers.

Speaking of our son, if you remember, a few months back, I posted a video about how smart he is.  It’s here, if you want to see it.  Anyway, in the last few months, my little super-villain has taught himself to read and write.

He won’t perform for the camera, so I have a hard time getting video of him reading his Curious George book or his Avengers Little Golden book.  But, I did happen to catch this on his Magna-Doodle before he could erase it:

The little man's writing

The word “Batman” doesn’t appear anywhere on his Magna-Doodle.  And to think, kids his age are supposed to be recognizing their letters, not writing them.

Oh, and he can count to 50 by himself.  He can count to 100 with help.  He may just grow up to take over the world.

Oh, so very true…

Rants from the Kitchen

If only you knew what was involved in bringing your food to the table.

That’s why I’m here.  To educate the shit out of you.  You would never go out to eat again if you knew the bullshit behind the scenes.  So, I’m going to expose some of the secrets that my bosses don’t want you to know.

Why am I doing this? Because fuck ’em, that’s why.

Did you know…

… most of the time, restaurant workers are not allowed to call in sick.  That’s right.  We end up coughing, sneezing, and sometimes, vomiting, on your food.

… whenever you find a hair in your food, it belongs to your server, although the fuckers will tell you otherwise.  In the kitchen, we are required to wear hair restraints.  Your server is not.

… never get a lemon wedge with your water or tea.  Your nasty-ass server doesn’t use tongs…
