I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

President gets punk’d!!

Talk about a breakdown in procedural protocol. Talk about the ultimate national security breach. What a farce. What an embarrassment. Heads surely will roll, thanks to this latest hoax … it’s ‘Balloon Boy’ all over again. Everybody wants to be a celebrity, their own reality show, their 15 minutes of fame … so pathetic!!

Do you ever think of me? You’re so considerate. Did you ever think of me? Oh, so considerate.

intravenous intertwined, why\’d you have to go and let it die?

A heart of gold but it lost its pride. Beautiful veins and bloodshot eyes.

I’ve seen your face in another light.  Why’d you have to go and let it die?

Why’d you have to go and let it die? Why’d you have to go and let it die?

In too deep and out of time. Why’d you have to go and let it die?

Why’d you have to go and let it die? Why’d you have to go and let it die?

Why’d you have to go and let it die? In too deep and out of time.

Why’d you have to go and let it die?

In too deep and lost in time. Why’d you have to go and let it die?

Beautiful veins and bloodshot eyes. Why’d you have to go and let it die?

Why’d you have to go and let this die? Why’d you have to go and let this die?

Why’d you have to go and let this die? Why’d you have to go and let this die?

Toronto – Atlantic City – $8 … huh? … um, well not exactly!!

That was the WestJet ad that appeared on the front page of The Toronto Star awhile back, maybe 1-2 weeks ago. Being curious, I went to their site and found that they did have these flights, and they were readily available … oh, and it was even cheaper – 8 bucks less a penny – $7.99. But, here’s the thing, it sounds incredibly cheap, and it is, but with taxes and fees it comes to $80.91 … so it ain’t exactly a burger, fries and a drink as you’d think. Oh, and to get back home, the price isn’t simply doubled as I thought. And, it’s not “let’s leave danistrulytheman’s sad, sorry, stranded ass in Jersey till he pays us through the motherfucking nose to get home” either as I also thought (I’m so cynical, suspicious, eh? Hahaha). It’s actually even cheaper – only $7 to return … and here’s the kicker … with taxes+fees it totals a whopping, paltry sum of $18.10!! WTF?!! My comments are, “Now, that’s a great fucking deal!!” … “What the fuck is up with the exorbitant gouging getting to AC?” and “Can someone please, please teleport me to Atlantic City?” … I’ll find my own way home!!

beer … what else?!!

I purchased this at the LCBO about a week ago, along with 10 bottles of nouveau wines that they just released. Oh, and before I get to the beer story, let me say that it’s a mad rush to get any of these wines. It’s like Cabbage Patch Dolls, or Tickle Me Elmo … but for grown-ups with a hankering for booze. Luckily I went early, but still I had to run around to 3 more stores to track down everything I wanted, and still missed out on one of the Italian offerings that immediately sold out. Ok, now the beer part. I had to ask the employee for it (they didn’t have it displayed on the shelves yet). We walked together to the warehouse area and through the door … and there they were, just behind it actually – how convenient? I saw about half a dozen stacked unopened cases, and she simultaneously started opening the top one and asking me how many bottles I wanted. How many bottles? She obviously was oblivious to its price. I said to her that since each bottle was almost 10 bucks …$9.60 to be precise, that “I’d stick with just one … spank you very much!!” – ok, so I didn’t say that, but you get what I mean. She couldn’t fucking believe it, nor can I even now truthfully. Granted it’s a 650 ml bottle, but still, I mean c’mon give a regular guy, a hard working stiff a fucking break … lol!! I really like experimenting with these high quality beers, so maybe I should just bite my tongue and grin and bear it. All, I need now is a reason to crack it open and drink it … and from what I’ve read, it’s way too much for one person, much too sweet and rich, so it’d be nice to share. Any takers?
