cut me some slack

i realize my last 3 posts were just stuff on cats. cut me some fucking slack, i have writer's block. ranter's block. whatever. the only thing i really wanna rant about is work stuff and on the off chance it gets viewed by someone who doesn't like what i'd say i'm going to refrain. i learned from friends that ranting under your own name can haunt you.

but if you must get a rant then here.

i fucking hate being healthy. well not so much BEING healthy as LIVING healthy. i remember now just why i used to drink nothing but Mountain Dew and Monster. I remember why i ate fast food, Hot Pockets, and Oreos. I remember why i sat on my ass and played games all day. I FUCKING MISS THAT SHIT. I'm tired of drinking water all the time. I'm tired of pissing 5000 times a day. I'm tired of the same 4 or 5 basic meals. I'm tired of watching someone down a soda in front of me and having to keep from punching them in the face.

you know what i hate more than all that? ME. i hate myself for letting it come to this. I hate myself for not having the foresight back when i decided to just say "fuck it" and thinking ahead about just how HARD it was going to be to bounce back when i finally decided to pull my head out of my ass and get back into shape.

I don't regret the "why" of how i let it come to this. I very rarely if ever regret taking the easy way out. I'm lazy. I accept it and can live with it. It was easy to just say "well, i'm never dating again so if i can live with how i look then why give extra effort into looking good?" i don't regret that. Scoring some ass is not my primary or even secondary reason for all this. I abandoned chicks as the motivation to do ANYTHING a long time ago and frankly it's one of the best decisions i ever made. The rest of you suckers can go make fools out of yourself just to try and score, but not me. Some lucky lady wants a piece of Mayor Jimmy? Cool. I'd be more than happy to engage in some heavy polling in the bedroom district. If she thinks i'm buying her drinks, pretending to give a shit about her problems, or sucking up to her for it.... not a chance.

Getting back to the rant..... I make a lot of stupid choices in life. In fact i've made so many i lost count. If i had to list a few i think 3 come to mind right away.

- Dropping out of the Academy. i got bullied out. plain and simple. i let a bunch of jocks and douchebags run me out of town. If i had to leave i'd rather have been thrown out for beating one or two of them into a coma.

- Quitting Rantville. i got paid to blog. and i threw it away. someone please come kick me in the fucking head.

- Not becoming THE MAYOR sooner. why couldn't i be like this in high school? what i wouldn't give to transplant the "fuck all of you!!! i'm Jimmy Ballard and if you don't like it then eat shit and die!!!!" into the high school guy i was.

So like every dumb thing i've done in the past, i'm paying for the lack of vision in letting my body go to hell. I'm clawing my way back to being in shape and it sucks. I can only blame one person though. I can man up to it. YOU COME TALK TO ME, I'M 32 I'M A MAN!!!!

A stubborn man, a stupid man, but it's who i am.

and just to keep with the recent posting theme. MORE CATS!!!!!



meow




Am i hopping around all nimbly-bimbly? am i drinking from a saucer?

face-cat

funny pictures of cats with captions
more animals

Cat-vertising

The video game F.E.A.R. 2 is to be advertised.... on cats.

Combining black cats (the best kind) + little suits displaying the game title + showing them on Friday the 13th * the game being a FPS thriller = marketing creativity.

If had Kitty, Jack, or Serenity still i'd totally be down for this. I'm generally against any kind of pet clothing but advertising? hells yeah. i'm a capitalist pig baby.

weep for the future

I feel really bad for the future of Colorado. You're raising a state full of morons.

Students attempt to get high school name changed to Barrack Obama High School.

this shows 2 glaring facts

1 - these kids are idiots
2 - there is a clear lack of anything resembling a competent history teacher at that school.

it should be pretty fucking obvious why these kids are idiots. we aren't even a month into Obama's presidency. He put a tax cheat in charge of the IRS. wow, we're off to a rolling start aren't we?

the reason they lack a history teacher is that any good history teacher would have immediately gotten them together and said:

"OK so you think your school needs Obama's name. all right well first let me ask you all something. how many of you think George W Bush is a good president? (wait for boos from mindless MTV masses) well guess what, if i had asked you that on 1 October 2001, 90% of the country would have just bitched slapped the lot of you and told you to get the hell out of this country for booing the president. That was barely halfway into his FIRST term. Obama isn't even a MONTH into his. This school name you're about to ditch is over 130 years old. That's well over one century of history you're prepared to toss out the window for a FAD. Now pull your heads out of your asses and get to class."

A-Rod

Alrighty, so it looks like the A-Rod steroid story isn't going away any time soon.

here's what i have to contribute in the way of thoughts to this. my only question is, how will this affect his possible entrance in the hall of fame? Should it? you bet your ass it should. all i know is that if A-Rod gets in and Mark McGuire doesn't.... that's horseshit. His excuse is the same one as Mark's, "i was doing it back when it wasn't against the rules" and if it didn't work for Mark then there's no fucking way it should work for Gay-Rod.

If i'm missing something here or i'm totally out of line, someone please tell me.

Yay stimulus bill

Hope and change.... and a shitload of taxpayer's money down the fucking toilet.

Some examples:

- A $246 million tax break for Hollywood movie producers to buy motion picture film.

yeah, cuz those douchebags are DIRT POOR right?


- $248 million for furniture at the new Homeland Security headquarters.

are we buying them solid gold desks?!?!?


- $160 million for "paid volunteers" at the Corporation for National and Community Service.

last time i checked "paid volunteers" are called EMPLOYEES.


Just remember, it is no longer patriotic to question or disobey your president. Now that Bush isn't around you are a bad bad person if you do not fall in line and show "bipartisanship".

Get over it south

Alright seriously now..... WHAT THE HELL

What the frakking hell is wrong with you all you confederate flag waving yahoos? YOU LOST. GET OVER IT. You reminisce over an idea that came and went. You're pining an organization that had their asses handed to them. It's like being a 2002-2008 seasons Detroit Lions fan in the year 2100.

Someone please explain it to me.

Good reading

My best friend Chris Badeaux started a website with some friends and he's writing articles for it. The website is

newledger.com

here's a great example of his writing. This is an article on the foreign powers and the kind of danger we face now.

Chris is a masterful writer. I highly recommend it.

Sheriff Douchebag

Congratulations Richland County on electing the biggest douchebag in town as your sheriff.

Maybe when he's done claiming 15 minutes of fame for wasting everyone's time with some bullshit charges against Phelps, he can go back to doing whatever he was doing. Cornholing drunks or whatever.

I hope he pulls over every one of you jerkwads for going 2 MPH over the speed limit and tickets you for jaywalking.

So now where are they

So Kentucky is getting frozen over with people dying.

Where's FEMA?

Where's Obama?

Where's the press crucifying Obama for the slow response while people are dying?

Where's Kanye telling us Obama doesn't care about white people? (is there a "white" version of Kanye?)

Oh that's right, since it's a Demmy-crat in office it must be the people's fault this time. Not the government's. duh. stupid me.

DOUBLE loser

Losing with dignity, not Federer's style. He's much more the "lose and cry like a girl with a skinned knee" type of guy. It's cool Roger, I hear chicks dig a sensitive man. Then again, so do a lot of other guys. The ones who prefer the company of other men.
